5 Year old home, with 3 year old addition (pool, patio, outdoor living space)
- english, spanish
We've owned land in Puerto Rico for several years and started building our dream vacation home in 2012. It was just completed Dec. 2013. Coming from a Puerto Rican background, my father was born and raised there and I still have countless relatives living on the island. I've been coming to Puerto Rico for over 40 years now. So we are quite knowledgable and can answer all your travel questions.
owner/manager purchased this House in 2013
Why owner/manager chose Arenales Bajos
We chose Isabela Puerto Rico, since it's far enough away from the hustle and bustle of San Juan, but near the beach and many sites and activities.
What makes this House unique
Our home is equipped with a water reserve tank and a generator to supply the home in case of a weather emergency. Generator rules do apply. Be aware that not all properties have this back up plan if the electric or water goes out.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.

A pleasant getaway
My fiance, family and I.
I had a great time. The home was beautiful, clean and cozy. I loved the patio and pool nice and big. It was a great place to celebrate my birthday. Neighbors were friendly. I can't wait to go back again.
Thank you Sandra for sharing your beautiful home with us.
Our stay was wonder. To the house, pool, the views and people. We did not want to leave. Sandy was a great help. She made our stay more comfortable and relaxing. We will be back next year and of course we will be booking with Sandy.
Awesome Month Vacation March 18 to April 15th 2019
Mike and I thoroughly enjoyed our month long stay in this beautiful, well-kept property. The house is well designed and easily accommodated us and guests that came for a week. The kitchen, living room, three bedrooms and two bathrooms are all well equipped and appointed. The cleanliness of the house got an A plus as well. That being said about the inside of the house we spent most of our time outside by the large and carefully designed pool, patio and covered eating and lounging area. This area is also a well maintained and clean area with the pool being cleaned once a week and lawns are beautifully maintained on a regular schedule as well. It truly was delightful.
We also found the neighbourhood to be very safe and neighbours were very friendly. In fact you will find the people in Puerto Rico very friendly and helpful.
A short 6 minutes drive away was Walmart and shopping mall with large grocery store. That convenience was very handy. Also the local bake shops are a must for fresh bread and baked goods and lots of homemade food to go or eat in.
We went to several beaches in the area that you could swim , snorkel or surf in. Absolutely beautiful views were seen at all the beaches. Two of our highlights while we were there was a trip to the waterfalls in SAN Sebastian and an overnight to Cabo Rojo where we saw the lighthouse , salt flats and the most beautiful beach. Hi
Our hosts Sandy and Eric and their daughter Bella were so helpful in making our stay so enjoyable. Sandy took time out of her very busy schedule to help us or guide us to many interesting places.
Being there a month we got to know them well and also became friends with Sandy’s dad Maelo and his wife Virginia. All of them were a joy to be with.
Sandy and her dad have a catering business “ Cruzine” and we had Mike’s birthday dinner catered by Maelo. It was delicious and bountiful. We highly recommend trying the extensive menu. You won’t be disappointed.
We were very sad to leave our beautiful Puerto Rican home ( it felt like home after our month) and we cried some tears as we pulled away. But we have already booked another month for next year so it wasn’t good bye forever. It was see you again next year.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house was clean and provided everything we needed and/or wanted. The owners are very accommodating. Our favorite things about this house were the pool and the catered food we ordered. The owners have a catering business and can cater food right in the rental!! They have many menu options to choose from. We chose to stick with traditional Puerto Rican dishes. We used their catering services 3 times and LOVED every meal! I highly recommend doing this! It’s totally worth it!
This house is located about 20 minutes drive from several beaches, restaurants, and a bike trail. It’s also within an hour drive to some really cool beaches in both directions, caves, and waterfalls. Aquadilla and Rincon are close too!
If you like this side of the island, or if you are looking for a place to stay that’s not on the beach, definitely give this place a try. The neighborhood is safe, we walked around several times.
We will definitely stay at this house again. The ONLY complaint, was how loud the animals next door are at night, but the owners provide sound machines and fans which really help. Overall, this is but a tiny thing.
We can’t say enough good things about our stay at this house and the owners. They provided exception hospitality!
Thank you Donna,
Were so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and already inquiring about coming back in June. Your welcome back anytime. Maelo enjoyed cooking for you and was happy he could go with you to the tire store to get your car rental tire fixed. It sounds like that saved you lots of money. We have all new windows going in next week, which will significantly help with any outside noise at night. Thanks again, for taking such good care of our villa and we hope to see you again in June. As I mentioned before we are willing to comp you one night on your next visit for being a return guest and reduce your cleaning fee since you left the house in such good order. Take Care, Sandy, Eric, & Maelo
We simply can't say enough good things about this great property! It was everything we had hoped for and more! This property is brand new, very clean, and full of great amenities. It is setup perfectly for families. Conveniently located near highway 2, it provided easy access to great beaches, restaurants, and attractions. Everyone was extremely nice and accommodating, making sure we had everything we needed to have a great stay! We highly recommend this property!
Ruins, beaches, forests, shopping, flea markets etc.
