About Erin and Jose

My husband and I started visiting PR about 6 years ago w/ our son. My husband was born in PR,but hadn't visited the island since he was a child. Going with him, I got to see the island from a different perspective than that of a tourist. I fell in love with the island and its people. We found our property in Arecibo 5 years ago and built the house little by little as time and money allowed. In April of 2015 we finished the final furnishing and landscaping and decided to rent the house as a vacation rental when we weren't there. In August of 2016 we made the permanent move to PR. Being close by, we hope to be able to give a more personalized experience to the guests who rent our home. If you choose our home,we hope you enjoy the house and area as much as we do!

Why Erin and Jose chose Arecibo

We stayed at a rental house in Arecibo 6 years ago and fell in love with the area. I liked the fact that its outside the main tourist area. You still get the beautiful beaches w/ stores,restaurants,& many available activities, without the crowds and traffic of the metropolitan area. As soon as we saw the property at the end of a dead end street in the small, quiet neighborhood, we knew it would be perfect for us to build our dream house. The wonderful, welcoming neighbors are what really makes this house a true home.

What makes this house unique

We tried to make the house comfortable w/ as many little luxuries as possible. Adults can enjoy a relaxing soak in the jacuzzi tub, while kids love the sleeping loft in the guest bedroom. Everyone enjoys the built in pool and large back yard w/ the coconut and other fruit trees. The property is great for families, couples, or groups of friends.Whether you're looking for just a quiet, relaxing escape, or a vacation full of activities and day trips, this house is the perfect place to be.

Great! Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

I don't normally do reviews but I feel this property deserves one. Erin and Jose were great, super helpful and informative. The property was even better than we expected, it was super clean, modern and had everything you could possibly need. It was Very quiet (well besides the roosters which we loved) and so relaxing. It was very convenient to beaches, groceries and dining. We had planned on getting out and about but honestly spent most of our time by the pool and reading in the hammocks because it was hard to leave such a great spot. The cute chihuahua across the street made our morning too. We also loved meeting Jose Jr😊 We will definitely be back hopefully sooner than later.

Simply awesome accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean, up to date modern house. The rooms are spacious, bathrooms are huge. The pool is a plus. Everything you can think of the house has it all. The gas grill was used every evening. Perfect get away house. You can really feel the true Puerto Rican experience. Hearing all the roosters in the morning, seeing the horses out on the road. You can actually pick fruit from the trees in the back yard. Erin and Jose were absolutely amazing, they were concern on our needs. Great experience, wonderful people. I would definitely use this wonderful place as a vacation home again., and will spread the word about this great house to my family and friends. This house feels like a home away from home! Once again thank you Erin and Jose.

Best vacation home ever!

  • 5 of 5

Erin and Jose greeted us with a warm welcome and open arms and made us feel at home right away. House was inmaculate clean and look even more beautiful than the pictures. Refrigerator had cold drinks and some Snacks and there was even good PR coffee. Pool was very clean and wonderful. The house was equipped with everything you need or want and the neighborhood was nice and peaceful. You will love the Chihuahua dog across the street, she will greet you everytime you come home. Conveniently located, you can be at the beach or the Shopping mall in about 15 minutes. We were very satisfied with everything and want to thank Erin and Jose for being such wonderful hosts. We will definitely recommend this house to anyone.

Jose and I really enjoyed meeting and talking with you both. We were happy to hear that you enjoyed the time you spent at the house and hope to have you back again in the future. Thank You Again, Erin and Jose

Modern, cute, and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for about 8 days in June of 2016 and we LOVED this house. If we ever go back, we would love to stay there again. It was so fun to come home after a day at the beach and relax and soak in the little pool in back. The yard is so beautiful and so is the house! It is every bit as cute as it looks in the pictures. There are other houses nearby, but the neighborhood is quiet and the couple of neighbors we encountered were welcoming and kind. My husband and I both learned Spanish after living as missionaries in Central and South America for several years when we were young, and while I figured we wouldn't need it much in Puerto Rico, I was surprised by how much we were able to use our Spanish. The house has two bedrooms but is very roomy for its small size. We were wishing we would have brought friends as there were enough beds for about 8 people (maybe more?) and there were only three of us. The house was clean, roomy, and beautiful! It is very modern and while we were there in June and it was pretty hot & humid outside, the A/C units in each bedroom kept it plenty cool at night for sleeping. The only problem we ran into was with ants, but we learned that as long as we put all our food in the fridge and took the garbage out regularly, they didn't have a reason to come in the house. Having both lived in tropical climates before, we've dealt with our fair share of pests, and ants are easy to deter quickly once the source of their curiosity is gone. We didn't even mention it to the owners at the time because we knew what to do, although I'm sure if we would have said anything they would have taken extra measures immediately, as they were very attentive and responsive to us during our stay. If you find yourself in the Arecibo area, this awesome little rental is a safe bet. Happy travels!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words about our property. We're so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. In August of last summer, a couple of months after your stay, we made a permanent move to PR from CT. We now live about 20 mins from the rental house, and have been making small improvements little by little.Some little things we've done is add a gas grill and hammocks out back and televisions in the bedrooms. Upon arrival, we did notice the small ants that would sometimes get into the house. We started having the perimeter of the house and around the yard treated regularly which seems to have taken care of it. If you're ever in the Arecibo area again, we'd love to have you and your family back to stay and hopefully, get to meet you personally. Thanks Again, Erin and Jose

Well where do I begin? This was our first time renting from vrbo and it was a wonderful experience. From the moment I contacted the owners Erin and Jose everything was easy. Erin responded to all my questions since I was a newbie to this process. She's very informative and goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome.... Upon arriving in Arecibo before getting to the house Erin recommended a place to eat named Martin's they had such good's worth the stop.

The house was amazing. Nestled in a nice neighborhood away from all the city hustle and bustle but yet easy access to the highway. The mornings sitting on the back patio drinking our coffee and listening to the chickens was so relaxing. We truly enjoyed the backyard had a great family bbq and a few dips in the pool. Oh and the kitchen had everything possible ... so much room to prep and cook it was great. The washer and dryer were a plus since I was able to get wash done before heading home ..that's a bonus for me lol. The rooms are large and welcoming. Overall I LOVED THIS HOUSE. Erin and her husband Jose are such nice people we had some good conversations with them. I am definitely going back see you soon Erin and Jose. Thank you for opening your beautiful house to us it definitely was a wonderful stay.
