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 amenities 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.
