Affordable Private Home steps from local beaches without spending a lot of $$$
You can't ask for much more in regards to this house rental. Located within close proximity to many quality surf spots such as Jobos, Middles, Wilderness, and Surfers Beach, just to name a few. If you're looking for a place to stay that offers up a feel for local life while being close to an array of quality waves, then this is your spot! Alex and his wife were super helpful and informative. Alex sends you a PDF file with important phone numbers you may need (hospital, area restaurants, emergency services, etc.) as well as popular tourist attractions across the island. The 3 bedroom, one bathroom setup is ideally suited for a group of 5 or 6 people. Everything you need to whip up your own meals are provided for you, and the house even comes equipped with a grill so you can cookout with your friends and family after a fun filled day exploring the area! I didn't encounter any issues while staying there other than the wifi not working when we initially arrived, however, Alex and his wife quickly resolved the situation. Truth be told, this was one of the most pleasant experiences I have ever had with a house rental and Isabela has and always will hold a special place in my heart. Going forward, I will be recommending this place to any friends asking my advice on where to stay in Puerto Rico. Looking forward to next season and I will definitely be contacting Alex to stay here again!
The property was clean and comfortable. General necessities like dishes, pots and pans, silverware are all there for you. Toilet paper, papertowels, matches (to light the stove) you will need to provide. Overall, it was a decent property. It's not directly on the beach but relatively close. Alex and his contacts where exceedingly helpful. They provided surf lessons and a general tour of the area. This is not a huge tourist location so you get a great feel for local life. Alex was always in contact and so helpful. I would definitely recommend this location and Alex with any of his properties.
This house was indeed steps from the beach and right in the best area to stay in Isabela as far as nearby restaurants. A huge Mango tree in the front yard to shade you as you rest in the hammock. Alex (the owner) was the best host. Even provided a portable crib for our baby to stay in... umbrellas and beach chairs too. Would definitely stay there again and highly recommend this to family and friends. Snuggled smack between jobos beach and shacks beach if you like to surf or snorkel you are sure to have a blast here! Super clean, super comfortable, and all the amenities WIFI, TV, and a gas stove!
Alex is a very good host and the cleaning woman, Cyndi, is very friendly. The house is located right next to the road but to sleep, if you turn on the air conditioners, noise is not a major drawback. Very close to Jobos Beach, Middle and Shacks, and has good nearby restaurants such as One Ten Thai, Pedro Pescao, Tuluum and "La Parada de los Surfers", if you only want good "Empanadillas".
The house is clean and has all the facilities for cooking. It has a large yard for family enjoyment.
My suggestions for the future is to try to build a bath or a half bath because when more than 4 people in the house, it happens that more than one need to use the bathroom at the same time. Also, the beds should include enough pillows and blankets in good condition to sleep more pleasantly, and at least the amount of towels for the amount of guests that sleeps in the house.
Although we are local tourists, this is all part of the amenities included as part of the package in the rent of the house, which adds value and allows us to enjoy a vacation without having to pack too much. Don't forget the lamps besides the beds for people that enjoy reading during the night, I know that those are already considered ?
Overall, the stay at Bamboo House, was a pleasant experience that would rent again.
This home is in within walking distance to Shacks beach. The beach was perfect for snorkeling, surfing and relaxing! The home was clean, with some new furnishings. While we were there, both the cable and internet were installed. Our reservation was for 6 nights, however, we only stayed in this unit for one. The proximity to the road made it difficult for us to sleep at night with the traffic. Alex made great efforts to relocate us to another property. I believe we were the first guests in this home. The manager was made aware that there was no coffee maker, blender and the stove top didn't work. I believe that he will make every effort to ensure that these items are in place and in working order. Alex was easy to work with and extremely helpful in guiding us around the area. We are grateful for his accommodating nature and are lucky to have a local as a friend!
The apartment was recently remodeled, very clean, and perfect for 2 people looking to enjoy the weekend close to Jobos beach and lively area. The couple we rented it from were very attentive to our needs and very pleasant. I definitely would stay here again!
