Perfect Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
As if the beachfront view and a pool twenty feet from the doorstep aren't enough, Casa Bonita's owners are friendly, professional, and knowledgeable about everything from restaurants to kiteboarding! The apartments are clean and well-maintained, and equipped with everything a traveling family might need. There is a washer-dryer available on the premises as well.
Casa Bonita is in a small beachfront community that boasts some good restaurants, at least one horseback riding spot, and a jewelry/art workshop, all within walking distance.
I would recommend Casa Bonita to friends and family any time. In fact, I already have!

Wonderful stay, great location!

  • 4 of 5
This property is in a great, private location directly on Shacks beach with sweeping views of the Atlantic ocean. It is in Isabella but on the far west side of town close to Aquadilla. It is clean, safe, secure and reasonably priced. While its not appointed like a luxury resort, it was suitable for our family.

We stayed in the 2 bd unit which was beautifully decorated and well-equipped. The kitchen was nice, though a few of the appliances, especially the oven, could use updating. We did have a few problems with the bathroom. It was small for our family of four (shower but no tub) and the shower head was broken and spraying everywhere when we arrived, also there was no pressure. Upon reporting it to the owner someone came the very next day and replaced the shower head. The shower pressure was still low but functioning better and we appreciated the quick service. The bedrooms were small but lovely. The washer and dryer were great, as was the outdoor shower. The air conditioning worked perfectly.

The outside patio is large and beautiful and where you will spend 90% of your time. I couldn't get enough of the views and the proximity right on the beach could not be beat. The landscaping around the house and by the pool is gorgeous and lush. The pool is great and there were plenty of toys available for the kids which we appreciated. The only thing we didn't like was having to leave the vacuum in the pool in the mornings. It would have been nice not to have to worry about the vacuum and unhooking it/replacing it every day.

The beach is beautiful and very private - practically deserted during the week. It is not a public beach so you feel as though you have it completely to yourself. It is rocky and there are sea urchins, so you have to be careful, but there was an area to the right of the house with a sandy entrance where my kids could swim. On windy days the current can be strong so you need to be careful. It is perfect for water sports and we saw many people snorkeling and kite surfing while we were there.

We had a great dinner at The Eclipse restaurant at Villa Montana Resort, only a 5 minute walk on the beach from the house. We also had dinner one night at the restaurant at Royal Isabela resort and that was fabulous. We took a day trip to Cabo Rojo and it was amazing, a must-see!

This is not the place to go if you seek adventure and excitement. But if you seek peace, relaxation and tranquility it is pretty close to perfection!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. We do our best! Sorry about the shower head issue. The water company had done work in the area and sediment was sent down the lines and clogged your heads. This occured after the apartment was cleaned but before your arrival. So our cleaning staff did not catch it. Yes to keep costs down, we run a pool sweeper rather than have a pool guy come every day. Its a trade off. Most guests dont want yard or pool staff around every day. So we let our guests know in the instructions for the apartments that they are free to remove the sweeper whenever they please. Thanks again and we are glad you enjoyed your stay and I hope we see you back next year!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Casa Bonita and Playa Shacks were the perfect spot for us - the only negative was having to go home at the end of the week!

My husband likes to be active on vacation, while I'm more inclined to rest and relax. Add a ten-month-old into the mix, and it was really imperative that we be somewhere with plenty of options. Casa Bonita fit the bill. There is plenty to do right on your doorstep - snorkeling, surfing (my husband loved his first lesson!), etc - and lots more that make for fun day trips. But it is also a delight to stay "home" and walk along the beach, swim, watch the surfers and whales, take in sunrise/sunset, and just relax. We also really appreciated the relaxed, low-key vibe in the area. The beach is far from being crowded and everyone we met was really friendly and delightful.

We rented the one bedroom unit and found it extremely comfortable, clean, and well equipped. There was another family in the two bedroom unit and you really can't hear anything from next door (they even commented on how quiet our son was after he had spent the first night making a LOT of noise as he acclimated to a new place!). Larry and Margie were such gracious hosts, and were very available if we needed anything.

We will definitely be coming back, just trying to decide on a date!

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was the vacation home that I have always dreamed of.

When our son told us he was getting married in Puerto Rico he also told us that he had found the perfect home for us to vacation in. His beautiful bride is from Isabela and was familiar with the area. Larry was gracious enough to extend his home to us for 11 days which is out of the ordinary as the rentals are usually week to week.

The two apartments were shared between family members and guests and was the perfect fit. The scenery, amenities, and restaurants were amazing. As we ventured to other beaches we always commented that we were glad that we chose Casa Bonita, it is truly second to none.

We will have to tell you Larry that we may have broken one of the "rules"....we had three cats that frequented the house, lounged around with us, and then moved on. We welcomed them with open arms...ha!

We couldn't imagine staying anywhere else and now that we have family in the area we will be returning often.

Like a DREAM!

  • 5 of 5
This place is perfect in every way. During our week long stay there, my husband and I would ask the locals for the best snorkel spots on the island and we would constantly be referred back to the waters right outside the doors of Casa Bonita! There is a spot right there called "Blue Hole" that was perfect because my husband would want to snorkle around longer than me and since the house was right there, I could go in, clean up and shower, then watch him further explore the reef while I sat poolside! The property itself is so beautiful, our room, pool area, lounge area and eating area were all so enjoyable, and on top of that, it was like the beach was all ours, very few people were out at Shacks, it's so hidden and private...like a DREAM! Casa Bonita was central to everywhere we wanted to visit as well; Ola Lola's for breakfast was within walking distance, Crash Boat Beach, Jobos Beach, Via Pescaria and the City of Aguadilla were all just a few minute drive away and really convenient for all the activities we wanted to do. We explored all over the island of Puerto Rico, but really had our best times right at where we were staying- Casa Bonita had everything we could want for a PERFECT vacation.

The best place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have been traveling to Puerto Rico for many years, After researching for the best place for our winter vacation in the island, I was impressed by the reviews of Casa Bonita. Upon our arrival and throughout our stay found reviews to be accurate, Gorgeous property,clean, stunning location,professional service.... My opinion ,the best place in Shacks beach and Perhaps on the island,hard to find a match to all the good qualities that Casa Bonita provides.
Many thanks and gratitude to the owners Larry and Margie For sharing your wonderful property with us, providing a service to the world and exposing the potential and beauty of My native home, making Casa Bonita place that Iwill always want to come back and visit again.
