Carenero House Rental Photos and Description

Thank you for your interest in our property, Casa Ballena is a complete beach house. It overlooks the Caribbean Sea, has lush green lawns, a private swimming pool and abundant foliage that make this retreat an oasis in the dry forest of Puerto Rico's south coast. This is a home away from home; a place to wake up to the scent of fresh coffee and chocolate. Start the day with a dip in the pool or croquet on the lawn before a day full of sun.

The beach house is ideal for slow dinners as the sun sets, as the kitchen is fully equipped for those who love to cook. Enjoy privacy and safety as the entire perimeter of the grounds is enclosed, with the main gate opening by remote control access.

The house has a stylsh yet casual Caribbean decor and very comfortable. It is equipped with bed linens, table linens, bath linens, swimming pool, professionally landscaped grounds, back-up water supply, and strong split unit air-conditioning systems.

There are three separate patios/decks for dining. There is a small poolside apartment on the property, available only to the family renting the main house. It is ideal for an extra guest, teenage children/friends or a nanny.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were going to Guanica for a family reunion and found this house. Absolutely lovely. Jeffrey, the house manager, was wonderful to work with, very friendly and attentive. The house is secured with a fence and has an awesome view of Gilligans island. We rented both parts of the house given the number of people that were staying and I heard no complaints. Breakfast on the back patio every morning was breathtaking. What was also nice was the generator - we had a couple small storms come through and both times, the generator popped on so we never lost power. We can't wait to plan our next trip to PR.

Beautiful and affordable relaxing vacation house

  • 5 of 5

Can't agree more with the reviews already posted. We were fortunate to spend the holidays here and have friends join us in the apartment downstairs, and the ocean view balcony for adult relaxation while kids were in the pool was juist phenomenal. That and the ferry trip to Gilligan's Island were definitely the best parts of our stay. The owner was very responsive. The only thing I would improve upon is the cleanliness/usefulness of the kitchen in the downstairs apartment. We just all used the kitchen upstairs, which is in great shape and fully stocked, so it didn't phase us much; but if you're looking for two truly separate kitchen areas for two groups of people keep this in mind. For the money, honestly can't beat the space, private pool, yard and view. Oh also the kitchen and living area in the downstairs apartment does not have A/C, but that is the only area. It is wonderful to have A/C available in the full upstairs house and the downstairs bedroom.

Casa Ballena for relaxation, fun, views, and quality time

  • 5 of 5

Casa Ballena in Guánica is an ideal vacation rental for all the reasons previous visitors have stated and much more. Our family of 8, sometimes 10, arriving from the bitter cold up North, was always comfortable and relaxed. The tropical atmosphere of the quite well-maintained house, the ceiling fans, the air-conditioned bedrooms (especially important in the summer months), the magnificent view of Guilligan Island and the proximity to that paradise, the pool, the lovely gardens with a hardy guayacán tree, the comfortable kitchens with all its tools and gadgets (we took the house upstairs and the full apartment downstairs), the BBQ, the three terraces with dinner tables and chairs and one of them with a sectional sofa too, and the quiet (even on New Year’s Eve), everything made the visit easy and enjoyable. Jeffrey, the administrator, and his family couldn’t have been more helpful. All our questions and requests were promptly answered.

There are also nearby must-dos and must-sees: the lovely beaches in Guánica, Cabo Rojo, Salinas; the city of Ponce; the Cabo Rojo lighthouse; and so much more. If you want a relaxing vacation, Casa Ballena is the place to go.

Its was a very spacious and comfortable house for our family (11). It was very neat and has everything you need. Beautiful pool and the sight to Gilligan's island from the deck is amazing watching the ferry come and go all day. There are beautiful beaches nearby, a nearby Econo for groceries just minutes away and a shopping mall not so far. We had dinner in a very nice restaurant in La Parguera. Its a place where you forget about everything and just have a nice time. When I think of our vacations in casa ballena I get this great feeling of escaping from it all and just wish I could be there with my family again.

Excelentes vacaciones

  • 5 of 5

Casa Ballena esta espectacular. La casa esta super bien ubicada. El servicio fue excelentisimo. El administrador estuvo disponible en todo momento. Es espectacular para el disfrute de toda la familia desde los mas chiquitos como los adolecentes. Isla de Guilligan es bella y desde la casa el viaje a la isla es comodo a traves de la lancha o en kayak.

Quiero regresar pronto!
