Villa Tranquila is an apartment on the bottom floor of a 2 story blue house. It is at Jobos, Isabela on the cliff overlooking Jobos beach. The property is located on a dead end street so traffic is minimal.
Villa Tranquila is perfect for 2 couples or a family of 4-6 persons, there are 2 separate bedrooms and each has its own bathroom. The kitchen/dining area has a large glass window with a relaxing view of the house garden. At the entrance to the apartment, on the outside there is an area with chairs and a table under a tree that can also be used to have breakfast, lunch or dinner (weather permitting). A grill is also available outside.
REASONABLE AND LOW RATES - SPECTACULAR LOCATION!
Villa Tranquila apartment is very peaceful and comfortable, located in a very quiet neighborhood where you can hear the birds singing and the roar of the ocean when it is rough. The apartment is about 300 yards from the cliff, you can walk to the cliff and enjoy the great view of the whole coast of Isabela. From here you can see the surfers at Jobos beach, the ships out in the ocean and the humpback whales when we are in season (Dec - April).
To reach Villa Tranquila from abroad you can fly to San Juan airport (SJU), rent a car and drive between 1.5 to 2 hours (depending on traffic) while enjoying the scenery, the roads are in good condition and well sign. You can also fly from abroad and make connections to arrive at BQN (Rafael Hernandez airport) in Aguadilla, rent a car and drive for 15 minutes to the apartment.

Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Love surfing, Stand Up Paddleboarding and Kitesurfing. Moved to Isabela in 1981 to live closer to the best surf spots in the Island. Isabela is now my home town and it is the place where all surf/sail related enthusiasts from the rest of the Island like to go.
Javier Gorbea purchased this apartment in 1998
Spectacular view and a quiet and friendly neighborhood. It has a great location!
The ocean view, the vegetation and the birds that live in the area are the unique benefits of this property.
I must apologize for our late review. When we returned home my mother's health began to fail and I have spent the past few months at her bedside until her passing. Our month at Villa Tranquilla gave me the rest and strength that I needed for her care. Javier is a wonderful host. Good friends were able to come join us for a month. Having our own bathrooms made that very doable. The view from VT was wonderful. The kitchen was sell provided with cookware and utensils. Having a laundry onsite was great, too. The location helped us be able to explore more of the island. We hope to come back some day.
Thank you, Javier.
The house was just as described in a quiet, safe location. Javier, the homeowner, was very thoughtful and made us feel at home from the start. There were just two of us but there was plenty of room for two more people. The whole place was clean and well maintained. We highly recommend this location and will definitely stay here when we come to visit family in the area again. Gracias Javier!
We had a lovely stay at the north western part of Puerto Rico. We had overlapping periods of occupation, but there were 3 couples - 6 of us, all adults and yes, there were occasional moments of feeling a bit crowded. But the weather was so lovely, everyone was in such a lovely and relaxed mood, our host, Javier, was so helpful and friendly and things moved along so very well, that that aspect faded into the lovely time we all had. Thanks again to Javier, who helped us to locate the amenities and the best restaurants and surfing beaches and a deal of other local information. It was truly a lovely interlude. We'll be back!
What a great place to stay in the Isabela area! We were a group of 2 adults and 3 kids and we were extremely comfortable. After spending the day surfing @ Jobos Beach (only a 5 min. drive away), the kids only wanted to go back to Villa Tranquila, hose themselves down in the breezy, green, private garden and just wait for the BBQ to smoke their favorites... Sitting in the garden eating, chatting and laughing with our daughter and 2 nephews was the highlight of our stay... the best family time! The neighborhood is so quiet and cozy, it just felt like a retreat. The sleeping accommodation was great and I regret not using the whirlpool in one of the bathrooms. Plenty of fresh linens and towels. Great little kitchen for those of us who like home cooked meals. If you are lucky enough (as we were), the mango tree will provide you with the most delicious mangos straight from its branches. It was an overall amazing time we had @ Villa Tranquila and we will definitely be back.
Beautiful and comfortable place. The two bathroom feature was a great time-saver for us. The beds were very comfortable and there's an air mattresses fitting up to 6 guests. The area is very quiet, providing a peaceful atmosphere-- you can hear the waves if they're big enough. Really short drive to Jobos and to other Aguadilla beaches, as well as the 110 road, which has a lot of great eating spots (check out one ten thai and cocina creativa!). I would definitely recommend you stay here. You won't regret it!
We can only say: Thank you for a wonderfull place and stay. Everybody who read this review should know, that this is one of the best places in PR. And tho owner will help you what ever you want - he is very service-orientated.
