Only a few steps to one of the most pristine and beautiful beaches in Puerto Rico, Villa Coqui is a classically styled and well equipped guest house ready for your perfect Caribbean vacation. This area of the island is known as the 'Garden of the Atlantic,' and it's easy to see why once you've spent just a short time here. This is truly a nature and water lovers paradise with miles of untouched and uncrowded beaches to explore. Snorkeling, kiteboarding, surfing, swimming, fishing, diving, windsurfing and many other watersports are available right out front or at the many surrounding spots within a short drive.
Villa Coqui has been designed in the spirit of traditional beach shacks by optimizing a tranquil, open common space and by minimizing distractions, bells, whistles and touristy knick-knacks. We've deliberately minimized decor and large scale entertainment centers to optimize your tranquil island experience. The decor includes original art of the surrounding area, cool tile floors throughout and simple, comfortable furniture. The expansive front windows provide brilliant light that give the main room an open, airy feel. Enjoy a good book on our 'L' couch, or plan an exciting day with your friends and family at the round kitchen table over fresh local mangos, papayas and oranges. Villa Coqui has plenty of ceiling fans throughout, which help provide great ventilation and bring the fresh Caribbean air direct to your senses. Escape the high rise condo/apartment complexes. Trade the beach hotel experience for a more intimate and private beach vacation.
Villa Coqui boasts 2 bedrooms with A/C in both: one holds a full bed; the other 2 bunk beds. Both rooms also have open, hanging closets. The beds are fitted with all organic, eco-safe, breathable cotton linens and pillow cases for a comfortable and natural deep sleep.
Other necessary amenities such as hot water, refrigeration, a gas range, toaster oven, blender, in-line tap water filter, cooking utensils, and dining ware are provided. The house is best suited for 4 people for maximum comfort and adequate living space; however, an additional person could be accommodated on the couch if needed). A stereo system and high speed internet with WIFI are set up for your enjoyment at the house.
Outside, you'll find landscaping that includes lemon, palm and aloe plants. Birds and other wildlife frequent the area including wild parrots, pelicans, tropicbirds, doves and cormorants. There's also an outdoor shower behind the house -- perfect for a fresh air rinse after a great beach day. Our porch comes complete with chairs and a small table for relaxing over a morning coffee, book or chat. There's also a charcoal BBQ perfect for entertaining a few friends in the evenings.
The neighborhood is quiet, safe and secluded in a small beach community that claims an extremely friendly Garden Bar just a few blocks away. There are 2 other restaurants within a few minutes by foot. Within about 20 minutes by auto, you can access grocery stores, more restaurants, movie theaters and gift shops. Other activities at the beach or nearby include tropical horseback trail rides, golf, caving, rain forest hikes and more. We're happy to provide plenty of suggestions for recommend activities based on your vacation needs.
We hope you'll enjoy your time at Villa Coqui as much as our past guests. It's one of the most special places on earth, and it makes us extremely happy to share it with you.

My name is Colin Gowland. I was born in Canada and spent most of my life there, traveling for sports interests when I could. In 2002, I moved to the Outer Banks to pursue a career in kiteboarding. In the same year, I begun traveling to Puerto Rico in search of the finest wave and wind conditions in the Caribbean. Myself and other close friends and family scoured the island for the best conditions and vibes available - what we found time and time again, is that we really just wanted to be at Shacks. I enjoy sailing as well as most watersports; I also love music-- both playing and listening. I try to get back to this beach house whenever I can. Shacks is a magical spot: one of my absolute favorites, and I hope you enjoy your time there as much as I have over the years.
Colin Gowland purchased this villa in 2007
Colin was super accommodating and his manager, Scott, was too. We enjoyed being so close to the beach and to all the great things Isabella & Aquadilla have to offer.
We stayed for 10 beautifull days, great location,great home, awesome beach and very private location. Easy comunication with owner and manager..would highly recomend for anyone.
I had a lovely weekend in Isabela at Villa Coqui. The home was literally steps from the beach, clean, safe and equipped with what we needed.
It was very convenient to the beach. Cons: the worst part was the house next door had a one night tenant that rolled in late on a Friday and partied until 5am, which made it tough to get a good night sleep for an early morning scuba dive. Also, the shower drained VERY slow and the double bed had a plastic cover under the sheet, so it didn't breath which made for a sweaty night sleep eventhough the AC worked great. Didn't know about the washer/dryer in a closet out back until the day we were leaving. It was adequate for 4 guys but our wives wouldn't have liked it.
I recommend this house. It was comfortable and very close to the beach. If a couple of branches were trimmed from the palm trees, there would be a nice view of the beach directly from the living room. It was always fascinating at the beach because there is a lot of wave action in the winter. The Eclipse Restaurant on the beach is excellent! The only reason I gave this place 4 stars instead of 5 is because there was a lot of noise from the neighbors two of the nights. The houses are close together and the windows are open because the weather is perfect. Also, the grill had to be rigged to work and the power went out and there were no flashlights or lighters to get the stove to work without electricity.
Managing a property from afar and dealing with last minute bookings can create challenges. We booked at the last minute, something happened and the property manager was super helpful and responsive. The Owner made the entire situation right. About the property: Good location, near a bunch of good restaurants (TBC, Paprika, The Reef, etc.). The house is very close to the beach and good surf spots.
