|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
This beautifully decorated home is large and has an open layout to maximize on the view. You even get a view of the ocean from the master bathroom! There is also a comfortable studio on the ground level of
our house (which can be rented separately or together) to accommodate larger families.
All this comes complete with breathtaking, full frontal views of the Atlantic Ocean. The house is very private. It has beautifully manicured grounds along with fruit trees. Enjoy the wonderful ocean breeze from the very large balcony or from the huge hammock. Take a wonderful walk on the beach (five minutes drive). If you are around during the months of February to March, you may get lucky and see whales!
The upstairs of the house sleeps six, and the studio sleep three to four. Please take note--the house can be rented completely or separately. See fees listed.
My husband David and I have 3 children. We love to travel but most of all be love to spend time in our home in Puerto Rico. We have many wonderful memories in this house. We hope you will also have a memorable time!!
Maria Pereira purchased this house in 2005
We fell in love with this home the second we saw it. The ocean views and the open floor plan was exactly what we were looking for. We hope to retire here one day. We love Puerto Rico, its culture and its people!
We love the grounds! My husband and I like to garden and completely get immersed in our gardening when we visit. We love to sit on the deck in the evenings, play some music and enjoy the stars.
If you're looking for peace and quiet Solimar is perfect for you. If you love to just sit and stare at the ocean, then Solimar perfect is for you. But if you want to be close to all the amenities we North Americans are used to, then Solimar is perfect for you too. It's located just 10 minutes from everything (Walmart, Church's Chicken, Pondarosa, Walgreens) but also minutes away from lots of little local stores and restaurants. Plus great roadside fruit and veggy stands. We're not beach people but if you are there are lots of very private beaches nearby.
The house is exactly like the pictures which is always a pleasant surprise. Very comfortable king size bed and couches in the living room. We are readers so comfortable lounging is very important to us. Lounging on the deck just watching the Iguanas come into the garden below was my favorite pass time. We were also lucky enough to see whales our first few mornings...that was so exciting! Maria was very easy to work with and her mom, also Maria, very sweet and welcoming.
We rented a car which is a must. A GPS, in addition to an island map, is also a must. As Maria will tell you, Puerto Rico is not great for signage, in fact many streets have no signage. When you look at the map remember, the smaller the road #, like #2, the larger the road. If you see a road with a 3 or 4 digit number expect to be driving a very narrow and winding road....my husband loved those! Road # 123 is a major route that runs North and South through the mountains. It is super spectacular, the mountains are breathtaking but it's like a roller coaster with lots of oncoming traffic, again, my husband had a blast driving it!
We had some wonderful trips around the island but were always happy to get back to Solimar and sit on the deck with an nice cold Medalla! We loved Solimar!
I have been to PR many times, but this was my first time on the west coast of the Island. Let me start by saying, this house with its view was "amazing". We felt so relaxed and comfortable there, it was clean and had all the amenities of home. This was so much better than a hotel! I fell in love with the area, truly. Maria recommended a restaurant in Aguada, and let me tell you it was fabulous! The beaches were close, the restaurants were all great. Overall, it was a great trip, we will certainly be back!
This was our second visit within a year. Our experience was the same as our last visit nothing lees then outstanding. Right from the start the planning, travel and of course our stay. Maria goes out of her way to make sure everything goes right. The family members that meet and greet you, make sure everything is set for you. Home overlooking the Atlantic is great, we feel so secure there, we know the area now, the people who reside in Isabella are so friendly. In the event you are planning a vacation in the Isabella area, where the beaches are great, Try Solimar I promise you will not regret. I kno we will be back. Dennis & Doris
We loved the property. Was great proximity to our family we were visiting and everything else we wanted to see on the island. The owners made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Breathtaking views were taken advantage in the morning for the sunrise and drinks on the patio at night. All the comforts of home and we will return for sure! Better value than any hotel, with an awesome, full kitchen, washer and dryer and larger eating area. Even though we toured the island non stop, some of our best memories were just relaxing at the beautiful Solimar. Close to Rincon, Agaudilla, Shacks, Jobos and Bosque Estatal De Guajataca is a gem! Also nearby is he Econo for groceries to stock up. We'll be back and thank you!!!
We had a great time at Solimar! The house is beautifull, well equiped and peacefull. The local contact for the property is a very nice person and sharp. The only thing I would fix is the TV since sometimes kids like ti watch cartoons and it was not working. But in general the place is awasome and I would stay again and again and again!
Dear Maria & David
We would like to thank you for a lovely six night stay at Solimar. Your vacation home is beautiful, the views were breathtaking. greatly contributing to wonderful relaxing stay by the ocean. The home is superb. very spacious, very clean and is like a home away from home. Your home offers everything you need for the stay. just pack your clothes and go. everything is there. Once we made the decision to stay at your vacation home. you helped us with planning. directions it was just great. We found the location to be great. you do need a vehicle. we like to explore the areas. Sitting on the deck over looking the ocean is unbelievable. Your home is everything in the pictures. plus far more.
Thank you for the meet & greet service, it was very helpful, besides my in-laws really enjoyed the conversations. They truly made our stay, very comfortable with all their help.
Thank you once again, fore making our families vacation so great. We will return again, in the near future.
Dennis & Doris
P.S. The worst day, was the day we had to leave to return to reality.
I can't believe it's over, It seems like yesterday we were planning our Puerto Rico holiday and where to stay:) So excited when we found this one where the pictures looked spectacular and the reviews backed up the stunning impression I was getting as I considered booking this rental... Well, Solimar surpassed all of my expectations- photos could never do it justice.
Six nights we spent in Maria's home and yet, this morning was time to head to the airport and I walked out on the deck and continued to feel complete awe taking in the 180 degree unobstructed water view. Cast your gaze to the left and watch the surf down there, gaze to the right and there's a golf course in the foreground... It's remarkable to sit and daydream over the unending water and horizon and have it all to yourself like that. I still can't believe it. With that kind of view, you can't go wrong. We had the absolute most perfect weather imaginable too, but I was thinking even IF it rained the whole time we'd be good with walls of windows and ceiling fans in every room to substitute for the sea breeze (IF the weather were an issue.) Good cable television too, we even caught the Game of Thrones season opener on Sunday night, and I will never forget sitting there that night. -So many great memories of our time at this special place... so many details generously considered and ready for us to make a home of it for ourselves... The outdoor living was fantastic around the house, there's a side deck off the master bedroom overlooking of course the sea to the left, but also the neighbor's back lot with horses grazing, goats, the rooster crowing, fascinating iguana of course, birds...
I'll say that we found everything we needed at Solimar and we didn't even know how bad we needed it until we found it. I am so grateful to Maria for making us feel so welcome and for all that she shared.
There really was no second choice for us in Puerto Rico. We had epic drives around the region shopping and discovering restaurants and beaching it... (though we really could have planted ourselves at the house the whole time and had the best vacation ever too!) ...and to the rain forest on the other side of the island. As we'd drive we'd consider other condos, hotels, houses, rentals, etc, "Oh maybe we should stay there next time!... but we always came back to this one in agreement. It was just the best- we couldn't have done better.
Puerto Rico’s west coast region, also known as Porta del Sol, has long been a mecca for surfers from all over the world. Isabela lays claim to some of the finest spots on the island.
This municipality also features the Guajataca State Forest, which it shares with Quebradillas. Hikers will revel in the intricate trail system, Bird-watchers will delight at the 45 species of birds here, including the Guaraguaos (taíno name for the red-tailed hawk). The reserve also features picnic areas and an observation tower.
