Once you arrive, you will quickly see why we fell in love with the sea lovers playground and chose to build a home here. The laid-back feeling of the island and its people is contagious. The glory of the sun and the sea will both exhilarate and relax you. There are 365 beaches in Puerto Rico, one for every day of the year, and one perfect for whatever water sport you choose to participate in.

Playa Sardinera is great for boogie boarding, while Crashboat in Aguadilla is perfect for swimming or boogie boarding and Rincon for surfing.
There are many other beaches all along the coastline, so whether you prefer a secluded stretch of sand, or a beach alive with others seeking fun in the sun – you can find your perfect beach in Porta Del Sol a virtual playground for sea lovers. There are many ways to spend your days with surfing, scuba diving, snorkeling, boogie boarding, kite surfing, wind surfing and swimming for both the novice and experienced.

The nearby Punta Borinquen golf course offers spectacular ocean views as you play along the 18 holes.
Be sure to venture out by car and visit neighboring communities and shop area flea markets for local fruit and vegetables and hand made crafts. Take part in the local culture at the various annual festivals throughout the island. There is something different to do everyday!
And what about shopping and evening activities? : We are located close to shopping malls, outlet malls and major chains such as WalMart, Kmart, Walgreens all nearby as well as several local grocery stores to choose from. You will definitely want to try the neighborhood bakeries with fresh donuts and pastries and deli counters, (they just don’t have shops like this in the U.S. anymore) and if you see those road side stands selling fresh fruit and vegetables – be sure to give them a try too. You won’t find better produce in any of the stores.
For your evening entertainment - there are local restaurants and clubs within a short drive from our home. We provide you with a listing of area restaurants, with our personal recommendations! There are movie theatres with first run films, or rent a movie. If you choose, there is nightlife close by with Karaoke, DJs and live music and you can party til the wee hours of the morning all within a few minutes of our home!
We had this home built for us after spending a week in the Isabela area with our children in 2004. We love vacationing on the island. We live in the midwest where we don't have beaches and palm trees. It was easy to become 'Beach Bums'. We love our time here in our 'home away from home:'.
Ayn Bartok purchased this house in 2005
The urbanization we chose to buy and build in was brand new. There were other homes under construction, but ours was the first one completed. We loved the proximity to shopping, dining, and area beaches and attractions.
We want you to enjoy your time spent in our home. We have learned from our experiences of renting vacation homes and tried to equip our home with everything that we and our guests would need to have a comfortable vacation. Each trip we are updating and upgrading our home to keep each guest's experience the best one possible!

Stayed here for two weeks, had a wonderful time. The listing is very accurate: beautiful new home, close to some very nice beaches (and a wonderful bakery just minutes away). Enjoyed sitting on the balcony every night enjoying the ocean breeze, the coqui, and a fresh pina colada!
The house was great. We had 9 people in our group, there was plenty of space for everyone.
The boys enjoyed surfing and snorkeling at the local beaches, while my husband and I visited some of the local attractions. It was great to come back to the house each night and hang out, play some board games and watch TV. The area is great. There is a grocery store just a few minutes away and a Walmart if you need it less than 10 minutes away. I would definitely recommend this home and the area. There is an empanadas stand in Jobos beach that is amazing!
My work team and I (total of 9) stayed at this beautiful home March 14th-18th 2013 and had an absolutely wonderful time. We traveled from San Juan International which was quite a distance away from the home. My recommendation is that if you are coming in from SJ airport travel in on the weekend or in the late evening to avoid the traffic. If traveling on the weekend the drive is only about an hour and a half not bad at all. The home is situated in a nice quiet section of Isabella right outside of Aquadilla. Very close to a walmart and many eateries. Best part of the location of the home are the beaches nearby. We found some really great uncrowded beaches that are very beautiful. The home itself is wonderful. The pictures really don't do it justice. The rooms are spacious and the multiple living rooms added more than enough room for everyone. The second floor patio is a very nice touch to the house as well. As for amenities everything you we needed was provided. The temperature in PR was around 85-89 while we were there and the house maintained a very nice cool and moderate temperature consistently without the use of the AC.
Overall my team and I would highly recommend this amazing house to anyone. Working with Ayn (owner) and Luis (housekeeper) was easy and they are both extremely accommodating.
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Casa de Paraisio for 5 nites.The house is as beautiful as the pictures indicate,inside and out.It is well maintained,very clean,and has that "homey " feel the moment you walk in the door.As the owner says you dont need to bring anything but clothes and food,everything is there.It is situated in a quiet neighborhood but just a few minutes from just about anything.Beautiful beaches,classy restaurants on and off the beach,roadside stands,shopping,you name it,its pretty close.We took a couple day trips,to the mountains,scuba diving,flea market,theres a lot more to do than 5 days will allow.Another thing we enjoyed was getting fresh fish and big lobsters at the fish market and grilling "at home".We found the locals very friendly and helpful which just made an enjoyable trip that much better.Probably my best memory is going to bed at nite,windows open,breeze from the ocean and the coquis(tree frogs) singing.We had a lot of relaxing fun on this trip and this home away from home was everything the owner says it is.In fact,our whole trip went so well,and I should add we did not go there with plans of doing it,but we ended up buying a place of our own.Thats how much we liked it.
My husband and I have known the owners of this vacation home for many years, this was our second time staying here. I enjoyed it so much when we went in December 2010 that we knew some day we would be back. So for our next trip we invited three other couples. There was plenty of room for us to all move about in the four bedroom home. There was lots to keep us busy in this location. We visited a different beach almost every day. We drove to the far west of the Island to Rincon where there is many things to do, like parasailing, fishing, eating great food, and watching the sun set. A couple of the other beaches we went to were Crashboat and Jobos both of these beaches are just a short drive from the house. I loved that about staying here, you are not stuck on a resort. You can go to the grocery and stay in to dine or eat out. Great Bakeries!
Well talking about now has made me want to go back again. So I hope everyone who visits this great vacation home has as much fun as we all did.

Casa de Paraiso was a home away from home! The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The setting secure and close to stores, beaches (good snorkeling) and fun activities. (Our adult children went ziplining and had a blast!) We selected this home because of its proximity to Villa Montana (where my niece was getting married) and for the 8 of us- it was far more economical and allowed us to stay the entire week!) The convenience of having beach equipment (chairs, towels and toys) was super, and the detailed information that Ayn provided about local sites was very helpful. Ayn was very responsive and provided super customer service- we had a minor glitch on the night we arrived (no power- 1st time this had happened-not her fault) and her caretaker worked tirelessly to get the power turned back on. Ayn even offered to pay for our stay in a hotel in the meantime! (We opted not to do that- bought candles- it was like a camping adventure:) And, later Ayn refunded us one night's stay for the inconvenience!! This was our first trip to Puerto Rico and we just scratched the surface. We look forward to our return and would without hesitation, select Casa de Paraiso again.
Casa De Paraiso (House of Paradise) is a nearly new home in a nearly new urbanization (community). Our home is conveniently located in Porta Del Sol (Door to the Sun)on the western end of Puerto Rico, just outside the city of Isabela with a view to the north of the Atlantic Ocean. Our neighborhood is peaceful and without the noise of excess traffic. The Coqui (Puerto Rican tree frog) will sing you to sleep each night.
Golf: The nearby Punta Borinquen golf course offers spectacular ocean views as you play along the 18 holes. It also is one of the most affordable greens fees you can find anywhere today!
