This lovely octagonal home located on the oceanfront cliffs of Quebradillas commands the most breathtaking coastal views from sunrise to sunset in all of Puerto Rico. There are steps directly from the property leading to beautiful secluded Noli beach where there is also a Rainforest to explore. Located in the popular Porta Del Sol region of Puerto Rico there are numerous restaurants (3 within walking distance) as well Horseback riding, Golf and other activities. There are also many additional beaches nearby for surfing, snorkeling and scuba diving.
With outdoor living in mind the property has meandering paths which leads through lushly landscaped gardens with several sitting areas amidst orchids Lemon trees, herb and flower gardens and of course the Gazebo at the edge of the cliff where besides the stunning views you can enjoy the varied bird life. Whales, Manatees and Giant Sea Turtles have also been spotted. Aligarden, a private 1/2 acre oceanfront paradise!!
One of the many beautiful views from the property is secluded Noli beach that is accessible from the property via steps affording breathtaking views of the spectacular rugged coastline. It is a wonderful beach where you can enjoy the surf and sun and watch the sea pelicans and other beautiful sights each day amidst the palm trees and lush tropical forest. Due to the surf and the strong currents it is not suitable for swimming. However, there are many swimming beaches nearby. The house itself has ocean views from each of it's rooms. The bedrooms, though not large, are quite comfortable. Both bathrooms have been beautifully redone very recently. There is also an outdoor shower to rinse off when you return from the beach. With the breezes coming off the Ocean and fans in every room the house is quite comfortable all year round with a wonderful tropical feeling about it.
The home has a Fully equipped kitchen (incl Dishwasher and Microwave), Cable TV, DVD/CD, Stereo, High Speed Internet Access, Comfortable beds (2 Br with King Size beds and one with double bed), Washer/Dryer, Private Security Gate w/remote.
A spacious Studio Apartment downstairs is available (at a nominal cost) for our guests who might require additional space for another couple. This comfortable Air Conditioned unit is comprised of the bedroom, (with Queen sized bed), a full Bathroom and a Living and Kitchen area that opens into Lush gardens surrounding an outside sheltered Living room with double sized hammock. Should you not need this optional Studio, it will remain vacant for the duration of your stay providing private enjoyment of the property.
I've been to Aligarden 3 times now and I am headed there again next month. This is the most breathtaking place I have even been and the photos do not even come close to doing it justice. The owner of the property has done all of the landscaping and gardening and the intense love she has for the property is evident in her work! It's easy to forget that a world exists outside of the property which makes it perfect for a truly relaxing vacation. The locals are amazing people with great stories. And the food is delicious!! The two restaurants located on the same street as the house make delicious local specialties that will have you craving rice and beans for breakfast! There is a supermarket as well other shops within a 15 minute drive and other great swimming beaches as well as the caves (which i recommend) are about 30-40 minutes away.
We arrived when it was dark and we could not see very much. Alicia had left the lights on for us so it was easy to find our way and the house immediately made us feel at home. The next morning we saw what a beautiful location we were in. The house is on a point right above the ocean with a beautiful view and surrounded by a wonderful garden. It is clear that the owners had put a lot of time and effort in making the house and garden comfortable and welcoming. Almost every day we went to a different beach, none of them far away. The restaurants down the street we could walk to are good. This was the first time for us in Puerto Rico and we liked it very much. It was a most restful vacation thanks to Aligarden.
.This wild and wonderful place reminds me of a romantic scene from Whethering Heights. A very interesting north island 6-sided house sits atop a rocky mountain overlooking a private beach with stone walk access. The wind and waves below give the property a romantic, wild feel, yet the gazebo, private reading areas and lush plantings create a tropical, warm jungle-like setting. The amenities are not lavish, but more than adequate and comfortable for a simple, unique island life style. The bedrooms and sleeping quarters are comfortable and relaxing .All the window panes can be opened in the back room facing the ocean, allowing the sunlight and sounds of the waves to come streaming into the house. The neighborhood is friendly, with plenty of quiet, pretty places to walk or jog. We hiked down to a nearby beach with our favorite neighbors and explored an old train tunnel, visible from the house. There is also an old historic "pirates cove" and 2 restaurants within walking distance. When the surf was up, we could see the surfers below riding the waves. The best part of our trip was hiking to the beaches and watching the iguanas,tropical birds, sea turtles, dolphins and whales from the back porch or gazebo. This is an awesome place to recharge, relax and experience the full beauty of northern Puerto Rico!!
I've wanted to send you a note since I arrived at Aligarden. Your place is
really amazing, all I can think about is how I can get back there. The week
there essentially redefined what a vacation is to me. I was so relaxed, falling
asleep to the waves and gently waking up to the sun and warm breeze coming
through the bedroom. I started a new job last week and I only get two weeks of
vacation and I'm quite sure that one of them will be at Aligarden. The garden was
immaculate, it was so pretty and the variety of plants was really impressive. The private beach was the icing on the cake, I didn't see a single person on it the entire week.
Thank you again for sharing your slice of paradise, I hope I can get back there
again and again.
This house has beautiful gardens and an amazing view of the north shore of Puerto Rico. It is adjacent to other houses, but the architecture, vegetation, surrounding walls and security gate make it feel very private. We loved the gazebo, gardens, and the sitting area around the built-in BBQ pit -- which we made use of several times during our stay. There's a locked gate (key on house key-ring) that gives you access to the path that goes down to the almost-private beach at the bottom of the cliff. We went down there almost every day and had the whole beach to ourselves almost every time.
A special thanks to the owner, Alicia, for making us feel at home and being so incredibly friendly and helpful. Thank you for the wonderful stay!
Growing up in Puerto Rico I never thought that i could call another place home until i stay in Aligarden. This property is an undiscovered gem. From the minute that i drove in i knew that the owners cared and loved this place. The house was immaculate. The oceanfront view is breath taking. The constant breeze from the ocean gives you this sense of peace that you don't get back in the states. All of the local restaurants are great, "La Quebrada" is a personal favorite. Alicia was easy to contact if i had any questions as well as she made sure that we felt at home and everything was good. I would HIGHLY recommend this house for a vacation home. She certainly has my business every time I go back to puerto rico.
