Beautiful 2 story home in famous Shacks Beach. This single family home has an outdoor pool, veranda and private parking inside a gated fence
I stayed there four days and it was an amazing experience. I live in Bayamon, a very populated metropolitan city and been there in the Isabela neighborhood, with friendly people, was extraordinary. Five minutes tops to get to the beach, the pool rigth to your door, privacy and comfortable. Service from Owner was extraordinary, the necessary communications before the date of arrival with details of places to go, hospitals, emeregency numbers, supermarkets, restaurants, etc. The caretaker visited us every day, checking every detail. The property is clean, well kept. I'm sure I'll be Back!
Our group of six travelled from Canada very excited about our Carribean Christmas Vacation. Sherry the owner was great to deal with- easy to communicate with via email- quick responses. The house was perfect, we all had very comfortable bedrooms and balcony's, great living area both upstairs as well as a downstairs covered verranda and comfy patio furnature. The pool was the perfect touch to wind down a day at the beach. The yard and pool were very well maintained and cleaned every few days by the pool man. The property manager onsite was extremely friendly & helpful with local reccomendations, information, and sent over a cleaning service halfway through our stay for fresh sheets ect. The beach was awesome- beautiful, undeveloped and a gogeous restaurant within a short walk. Whole area was very friendly and active.
All in all we would be happy to reccomend this to anyone else and go again ourselves if the oppertunity arises!
It may sound strange but It was so wonderful coming back from the beach or other event each day to our private swimming pool. Our grandson learned to swim in that pool! We rented the entire house and it worked out perfectly for our whole family (3 couples and 2 grandchildren). We ate outside on the lanai every night. The furnishings were just right and the rooms were nicely decorated. The property has beautiful coconut trees, plumerias, iguanas and plenty of parking space. The AC works great though we only needed it a couple evenings during the week. It's a very short walk to Shacks Beach. This house is across the street from the beach. If you have children with you ask about access to the laundry facilities. They have everything you need to cook and an outside grill which we used most of the time. It was the best vacation we have ever had as a family. We will be back to rent it again I am sure!
Thank you to Sherry and her caretakers for making our stay so nice!
Don't miss out on visiting the artisan's shop next door with the hand made beach glass jewelry and hand painted bamboo and coconut art. Each couple got a piece of her art to commemorate our family trip.
We had the best week in December 2010. The house was in the heart of it all while just being far enough away from the hustle and bustle of traffic and noise. We followed the owners directions to get there from San Juan (2.5 hour drive) because it was definitely dark and some of the roads at the end were hard to see. Once it was daylight it only took us about 1/2 hour to find everything and get comfortable to know where we were.
The house has everything that you need for a week at the beach. You spend most of your time outside and it is beautiful. The pool and the yard is well taken care of and nice to just sit at the large patio and enjoy the day. It is convenient to anything that you will need and also to several beaches that are amazing! We walked to several of them and a short 5-10 minute drive to others. Having the big yard and pool was perfect, a great way to start and finish your day.
Neighborhood is quiet and there is an AWESOME. You must visit the garage bar called oh la lola's just down the street with the best pina coladas EVER and wonderful food. A great happy hour place where locals and visitors alike.
If you are looking for one really nice dinner with the best vue ever Eclipse is down the road as well and you actually eat on the beach. I recommend this house for anyone. The food vendors on the street are great and don't be intimidated they have some of the best food. Even if you have never heard of it before TRY IT! You won't be dissapointed.
If you are looking for a relaxing week at the beach, off the beaten path but convenient to everything, this is your spot. Thanks for a great week!
This great two story home, (the PINK HOUSE), is so warm & welcoming. I have beed vacationing @ this home for 5-6 years and absolutely love it, the greatest serene place. "When you get there you are somewhere"! The owners have provided everything needed..one can just stay put and enjoy the local flair, the beautiful beaches, snorkeling, or just sit by or IN the pool reading your favorite book, getting sun, relaxing with your favorite beverages, in the comfort of your own yard.
Recently, there was an unusal black out and the entire neighborhood was right there to help with flashlights, candles it was actually fun. One could sit under a blanket of soo many stars and try to figure out constellations.
The home is close to shopping and a great beach Crash Boat for FRESH FISH, which we had 4 nights right there @ home on the grill. One couldn't ask for more. I have gone horse back riding, which was great, and gone for a day trip to the Taino Indian ruiens, and one year went to the coffee festival up n the mountains of Puerto Rico where everyone we asked for directions was extremely helpful.
After a couple of days one is walking to the beach and the feeling of belonging is present, and one is chatting with all your neighbors.
This island is absolutely wonderful, I have brought several women,and friends from all over the country, from Las Vegas, North Carolina, DC, Vermont, Annapolis and every single person had a great memorable and relaxing time. All would return and a couple have.
The owners are extremley helpful and go the extra mile to make sure ones stay is an extremly pleasant one.
I am already planning my next trip. Mind you I am traveler, having been to many carribean islands, Hawaii, Tahiti and many others, my PR trips are the best.
I Highly recommed this island and in particular this home for your next vacation.
We spent a week at Sherry and Ted's wonderful beach home and it was fantastic!
The beach is right across the street and is perfect for sunning, surfing, and diving in the "Blue Hole". If you walk just a little way to the west, you will find a sandy bottom beach for easy swimming access. We also walked east to the town of Jobo's, great for surfing and swimming. And several places to get food and drink right on the beach.
We spent several evenings dining and socializing at Ola Lola's Garden Bar, which is right down the street. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, where ever we went.
Did I mention the pool? It was sparkling, clear, and so refreshing! We always went straight for the pool after a day of exploring and searchinig for surf spots....which were plentiful. The conditions were anywhere from good to great during our stay.
The local beach food is delicious and a great deal...we loved the shrimp empanda's and pincho's down the road. El Cary's Cafe in Jobo's has the best chicken quesadilla's and smoothies!
Horseback riding was very close too...we walked to the stables one afternoon and went riding on the beach and through the forest all the way to the caves at Survival beach. It was beautiful.
The house was clean, comfortable, and complete with anything we could have wanted. All in all, this was a fantastic place to spend a holiday and we will definately plan to go back.
* a special thanks to Alan, the caretaker for directing us to the local grocer Econo...and for all of his friendly advice too.
