About the property
- House5000 sqft
- Half Baths2
- Minimum Stay6 nights
6 Bedrooms, 6.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 16
Elegant ocean front house on over half an acre of land with infinity pool, private access to the water, and two decks to enjoy the most beautiful sunsets in the island of Puerto Rico. The house is beautifully decorated with six bedrooms each with an ensuite bathroom plus two half baths....but you will hardly want to spend anytime inside! Begin your day by taking a dip in our infinity pool, and then go down to the water through our private access to the ocean where you can snorkel, paddle board, or just go for a swim. In surfing season, you are only minutes walking distance from some of the best spots in Aguadilla, or take a short drive to Rincon or Isabela. You can also walk to Crash Boat Beach, one of the best beaches in the area. In the afternoon, have your favorite drink on the upper or lower deck and enjoy a different sunset every day, watch for the birds of the area, the picturesque fishing boats, and, depending on the season, watch for whales or a school of dolphins.
The only problem you will have with this property is that you will not want to leave!

About Shannon Boyle
My wife Shannon and I have traveled all around the world, and understand the demands of high end travelers and we are sure that you will love our property. We are constantly making improvements to make it better. This is our second home and we are making it available on a limited basis per year. We hope to share it with you!
Shannon Boyle purchased this House in 2011
Why Shannon Boyle chose Aguadilla
Aguadilla Puerto Rico is an island vacation dream location. The house is located approximately 20 minutes from the local airport where flights arrive daily from US cities such as Newark and Orlando/Ft. Lauderdale. The area includes an 18 hole golf course, snorkeling and scuba diving hot spots, tranquil seas perfect for paddle boarding, and plenty of great restaurants featuring both local and international cuisine. Aguadilla is only 20 minutes from Rincon and 10 minutes from Isabela, these three cities have the best surfing in the island. This house is designed for vacationers who want either plenty of activity or peace and quiet, it's entirely up to you! The infinity pool is a combination of a 30 foot pool that ranges between 3.5 feet to 6 feet deep and is perfect for early morning laps. Also part of the pool is a 10 foot by 8 foot sun shelf that is ideal for younger children who want to splash in the sun. With six bedrooms, each including an en suite bathroom, exceptional closet space, and private balconies it would be easy to imagine this location for hosting a perfect wedding destination. The cliff side deck overlooking the ocean and facing the western setting sun is an ideal location for an afternoon ceremony followed by the perfect reception party. Please indicate if you are interested in information on the rates and availability for a wedding party.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Everything was beautiful, great location, quiet neighborhood, the property was well-maintained and the amenities were great. We were a bit concerned after the hurricane, but all was in good shape. Nos vemos pronto!
This trip was for my 50th birthday. I made the arrangements before the Hurricane. We almost cancelled. Alberto and Shannon promised we would have the best time ever. Soooo glad we did not cancel. We had a great time. This part of the Island was exactly what we like, not touristy. The house and the grounds are simply amazing. (the house has a automatic fire generator that powers the entire house) Pictures do not do it justice. It is much larger then the picture show, it has multiple sitting areas inside and out, the diner table held all 12 of us. I am a Chef/Restaurant owner, let me tell you the kitchen is well laid out and stocked with pots, pan, utensils, serving tray, bowls everything you could need. 2 blenders came in handy. We hired Wilmars a local Chef. She was awesome made our trip even better. she can make many different items but we wanted Puerto Rican food and she Killed it, brought her daughter Jezebel a few times too. Truly Wonderful food, served with a huge smile. I would Hire in a second. Yolanda is a cleaning Ninja. in and out of the house before you know it, beds made, bathroom stocked and spotless. Jose was easy to get a hold of. Alberto even stopped by to check on us, it was very nice to meet him and chat for a minute. I could sit here and write pages of my families memories that were made at this great place, but I wont. You need to stop reading about my vacation and just book it, you will be so happy you did, and you will be here writing a review yourself. We will Return
It all adds up to a 5 star experience!
As I was thinking about how to write this review I realized that so many aspects of our vacation at Villa Carambola in Aguadilla Puerto Rico added up to make this the most amazing vacation we’ve ever had. Starting off with even just finding this gem of a house and location….we knew we wanted to go to Puerto Rico to celebrate my 60th birthday but we honestly didn’t know about Aguadilla. What attracted us to this location was finding Villa Carambola on HomeAway. We needed a large space for our group of 14 to spread out and Carambola was perfect, especially with each bedroom having its own full bathroom. We loved the large yard and lush gardens and we met Raul who takes care of the landscaping and the pool….you can tell he does his job with a lot of pride and everything is just beautiful. The house was also beautifully decorated and immaculate and again, after meeting Yolanda, the maid who came to clean every day, we could see that there was a lot of love and care put into taking care of the house. We decided to relax and enjoy the pool and the ocean down below for the most part but we did venture out to Aguadilla a few times and found a small cute town with lots of choices for restaurants. There's even an ice skating rink right across the street from the beach!! Make sure to check out Crash Boat beach…it was pristine water and a clean, white sandy beach and just a 15 minute walk from the house.
As I said, it all adds up to a 5 star experience and we can’t wait to go back again!
Property is amazing and well kept!
We had four families and a total of 15 adults 2 kiddos. We had a blast and made memories to last a lifetime! Thank you! I highly recommend the chef, Sandy and her dad, Mielo. Their food was delicious and made our stay truly relaxing! Not to mention, we had the luxury of watching our own sunset with a cocktail while dinner was being prepared! These Moms were vacationing from cooking!
Gorgeous Property, Beach Access -but- House Needs Work, Cleaning
I always hesitate to write less than glowing reviews, but I really wish I'd read more detailing the condition of the property and location. The property is stunning - you have private beach access, a huge lot, gorgeous pool, plenty of outside shade for seating, and the house is large enough and furnished for a huge group! However, there is not AC throughout the house only in the bedrooms which meant some of the midday times folks simply retired to the bedrooms. The first thing I noticed was that the house looked like it hadn't been truly cleaned in a long time. Clumps of other people's hair were hanging out halfway under the master bed, dead flies baked away in the window tracks forgotten, no one had swept or hosed off the balconies, the dishes were often covered in dried food from guests previously, knives were broken and not replaced, the refrigerator didn't work very well - which makes staying in the house with 10+ people a bit of a challenge and half the guests had little or no hot water in their showers the whole trip. They suggested we use the coolers for drinks (which totally makes sense) but both coolers were also broken. Much of the outdoor furniture was broken or had big rips in the cushions meaning that while the front deck near the sea looks gorgeous, you could only really seat *some* people there.
We've rented from MANY luxury homes and this was hands down the most disappointing. I would've paid half the price, but not the full rate. The location is also kind of...undesirable. You're a ways out of Aguadilla and the surrounding town area isn't really nice or accessible. The homes are at a hard to get to point of luxury surrounded by not luxury. Meaning you cannot walk into town. I mean, you COULD if you had to, but I would be afraid of getting hit on the little road to town. Get more than one car for your group or you will be stuck at the house. And one fridge for 10+ people meant that we had to go to the store every day in order to cook - seems like a second fridge would make sense.
It seems like they tell everyone (judging by reviews) that there are some maintenance issues to handle, that never really seem to get handled. A review from 2015 that echoes mine - I'm guessing they keep the place in a barely acceptable state and use the sentiment that "Oh we have a few things to take care of" and then never really do it again and again. I wouldn't revisit - definitely not worth the money.
Would be 2 star, but the view is insane!
The property it's is absolutely breathtaking
The property is absolutely beautiful. However upgrades do you need to be made. We were able to enjoy our time anyways with our family, as we don't get together often. The staff was very responsible and great with communication and fixing the issues that occurred. My favorite part about the Villa was the private beach the water is very calm. Thank you for our stay Alberto and Shannon! 😊�
