House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
We are water maniacs that live to surf, kite and standup paddle board every opportunity we can! We spend every day in the water possible and our home at Shacks Beach is where we visit when we have a break. We love it here and hope you enjoy the magic this beach and area of the island brings...
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Owner chose Montaña
We chose this house and location for all reasons in all seasons. When the surf is up, we surf! When it’s windy, we kiteboard the waves out front. When it’s calm and clear, we enjoy snorkeling, diving in underwater caverns and standup paddle boarding. There is something for all ages and all friends and family who come with us! The home is located very close to Villa Montana, which allows public access to a five star resort with many amenities (two excellent restaurants, massage/spa treatments, evening entertainment). Lots of people rent our home that attend weddings at Villa Montana, but do not wish to stay at the resort. (it's a 2 minute walk from our home to the resort, via the beach) Lastly, Aguadilla (BQN) Airport is a five minute drive to our front door. Allowing a direct flight from JFK on Jet Blue to our home in 3 1/2 hours. Doesn't get any easier than that!!
What makes this Apartment unique
Our house is near the “Blue Hole”, a coral-reef-protected swimming area that provides visitors the opportunity to enjoy a variety of sea life while snorkeling and diving in underwater caverns. The house is also in front of what Windsurfer magazine has called the best wave sailing in the Caribbean and what Skin Diver magazine has called the best snorkeling and diving in Puerto Rico. Just west of the coral reef is a challenging surf break and almost a dozen additional major breaks are less than a 10 minute drive away. Over two miles of uninhabited beach and distant cliffs beckon sunset walkers. Nearby you can also enjoy horseback riding, mountain biking, cave expeditions, the Arecibo Observatory, and an 18-hole golf course with spectacular cliffside ocean views. Mother Nature provides solitude and adventure, as desired.

Great house, ideal location
Beautiful house in perfect location. This neighborhood is safe, quiet and off the main roads, and is backed by a beautiful beach. The house has everything you need including a spacious living room and porch with waterviews, outside shower and barbeque, and parking for 2-3 vehicles. Leave your worries behind and experience paradise at this great property.
Villa shack definitely worth it!
Close to snorkeling and surfing. Keeps everyone happy. We'll DEFINITELY keep this on our short list of places to return. All went very smooth. No complaints at all. What more could you ask for!
Super! Glad you had a good time! Would love to have you return. Great kiting, surfing & snorkeling location.
This is a great and very affordable house right on the water, really good surf spot with very long and clear waves. It’s never crowded. The bar at the beginning of the street has very good martinis and Rom punches.
I have been to this house a few times and it is always a blast. It is a stones throw from the beach which makes taking sessions right out the door really easy. I like staying out at Shacks for the peace and quite with short drives out to night life or other surf breaks.
If you have a big group try to get the upstairs as well. That means 2 kitchens for the monster meals after your long day of taking sessions.
Surprisingly, this kiteboarding mecca is a great spot for seniors.We love the beach which is a 2 minute walk from the house. Once you're there you can walk for miles and collect your treasures from the sand.There is good shallow water snorkeling and even better snorkeling a bit further out. Pelicans soar and wildlife is abundant.
Dinners out are casual-we prefer a spot called Jimmy's on the main highway.There is a new supermarket close by. It's well stocked and super clean. Right next door is our spot for breakfast with baked goods made on the premises.
If your choice is golf, there's an 18 hole course a short ride from the house.
It's a beautiful spot, very casual and relaxed. Pack light--you don't need much. I've just returned from a 5 day visit and can't wait to return.
PERFECT RELAXING GETAWAY...Pat, Long Island , New York 11/30/10-12/6/10
We couldn't have asked for a better place to relax, soak up the sun and enjoy the beauty of the water and the beach! Our accommodations were very clean,comfortable, well-maintained and looked just like the pictures.
Tucked away in a quiet community of Shacks Beach, you are within easy access to restaurants, supermarket and the airport. Meals can be had on the gas grill provided or the many restaurants.
I highly recommend this house!
