About Jose R. Diaz ¡Mi Casa Es Su Casa!

TMI about me! Enter at your own risk! I'm Jose R. Diaz, 63, father of 3 adult kids, married for 41 yrs. to Nedeam Diaz, BA in Science, AS in Networking Engineering, Masters in Counseling, Masters in Networking Security. Currently a part time High School Computer Science Teacher and a Seminole State College Adjunct Professor. More Pictures her:

Among other things, I love history, photography and technology. I drink a glass of wine with my supper (Merlot). I'm a certified P.A.D.I. scuba diver since 1989 and always dreaming with finding a shipwreck with the mother load! I love anything to do with the Atocha and the Santa Margarita shipwrecks in Key West Florida. I own a very tiny piece of eight (ocho reales del Rey Felipe de España) wrapped with 18k gold and 7 emeralds as a neck pendant from Atocha.

In Isabela, I found, many years ago, a Taino indian arqueological site (I was 15). I kept digging and found several items that I turned in to a college professor from the University of Puerto Rico (his name escapes my memory, but it had a certain Russian flair to it). I might have kept the best two Cemis (gods) carved in rock, like the size of Idaho potatoes, don't know exactly their whereabouts now but got pictures of them.

I'm a 3rd ID US Army Veteran that served in Schweinfurt, FRG at the Brigade Office of the Staff Judge Advocate (learned some basic German).

Love teaching and my students think I'm cool! Life is Good!

Jose R. Diaz ¡Mi Casa Es Su Casa! purchased this house in 2015

Why Jose R. Diaz ¡Mi Casa Es Su Casa! chose Puerto Rico

Isabela brings a lot of beautiful memories from 1967. When 15 years old I lived for one year at the Order the Santo Domingo Seminary that used to be located in the Casa Parroquial across Isabela’s main square. I attended Francisco Mendoza HS for my 3rd year. I spent every chance I had exploring the beaches and the smaller country side Barrios making a lot of friends.

At la playa de Jobos (Jobos Beach) in the rocks, there is this magical place called El Pozo de San Jacinto (Saint Jacinto’s Well). This is a well formed into the rock by the sea that locals know as a wishing well. I used to visit this place a lot to see the surf burst through the big hole, I also made a few wishes like to be rich.

Isabela’s history kept me looking and digging in arqueological sites for Indian artifacts as I was captivated by this as a hobby. I’m a bit of a history buff and our Puerto Rican roots are very tied to the Taino Indians as well to the African and Spanish culture.

Isabela’s Taino Chieftain was Mabodamaca. Puerto Rico was known by Tainos as “Boriken” when they were invaded by the Spaniards. The history explains that Tainos believed they were gods & forced to carry the Spaniards on their backs to cross a river so their boots did not get wet. Three Tainos drowned a Spaniard Diego Salcedo midway a river, and sat to watch if he was an immortal god for three days! Thus during the year 1511 there was a Taino uprising throughout Boriken and Mabodamaca was the northwest leader. Many versions exist about what happened to Mabodamaca at the time, I prefer the one that says he disappeared into the woods and left his huge gold chest pendant somewhere to be found.

Even though during my stay in Isabela I wanted to be a Catholic priest, it was in Isabela that I found out priesthood was not for me and few years later married Nedeam (for 41 years and we have 7 grand kids)!

Ever since 1967 I always wanted to own a small part of Isabela and we just recently purchased Casa Vista Verde!

What makes this house unique

I chose this property because of it's location with only one entrance in a very safe neighborhood. I love the backyard very much. The people are very happy we bought the place. They have welcomed us making us feel like home. At times I needed some tools and did not feel like driving to Home Depot, they offered not only their tools but their help and allowed to use their bathrooms when the house was being tiled (did I mentioned the new 18 x 18 Porcelain tiles?).

The house has a real nice security system, and you will be able to arm and disarm the system when leaving or staying.

Two houses down, lives a real nice law enforcement officer which is kind of cool to know and adds to the neighborhood reputation of an excellent place to stay.

The house the fact that is so close to everything. It is 1.5 miles from La Villa Pesquera Beach and 11 minutes from Jobos Beach. The house sits very elevated from the sea level, so the only Tsunami you should worry about is when you visit that nice eatery at the Jobos Beach (ask for the owners of the Tsunami), I love their food!

The ECONO grocery store and the bakery "Los Talleres" are a short drive away. The Villa Pesquera has many traditional Kiosks that cater "cooked on the spot items", with live music on weekends and mucha cerveza!

The golf club Punta Borinquen (dirt nice and cheap of the Atlantic, club rented) in Aguadilla (also the ruins are nearby).

Aguadilla: Crash Boat Beach I learned some scuba diving in 1989! The aquatic park "Las Cascadas"is a lot of fun waiting to happen.

Explore the Caves in Camuy & World Largest Radio Telescope/Observatory located in Arecibo city.

Nothing like a visit to the Old San Juan city! Get there real early! Park in the municipal parking building, take free trolley up to explore El Morro Castle & slowly browse your way downhill to the front of the Bay area. Take the ferry boat across the San Juan Bay $1.00 round trip as you contemplate the fortified city from a different perspective!

This property had everything! My family and I were thrilled about the new bathroom and shower outside. We enjoyed our stay very much. The beach is not to far from the property, the house had a cooler and chairs that we used. It felt like we were home and taking a trip to the beach. My children enjoyed playing outside with the ping pong table to playing some board games inside. (Of course they enjoyed being connected to wifi). My boyfriend and I were very pleased with our decision staying on this property. Randy the property manager was awesome very nice and very helpful! Even though we had a few hours of electricity nor water one day it didn't effect us much. Nothing we can do with a tropical storm going thru or a water pipe breaking. Nothing the property manager couldn't fix right away. Overall this property deserves more than a 5 star review. We look forward to booking our next vacation to Puerto Rico at this property per the children request.

Casa Vista Verde is a perfectly comfortable and fun home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This place is great. Lots of space to relax. Very comfortable beds. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals for your family. We even used the backyard grill one night. The ping pong table and pool table were a great addition and kept us busy on rainy days. Randy was a terrific host and very helpful. We left here after a five night stay and checked in to a place we had reserved in Arecibo. It was terrible! We stayed one night and called Randy the next day. He contacted the owner and luckily we were able to spend the last four nights of our vacation here at Vista Verde.

Owner's Response: Good morning Ms. Enid! Thanks for your kind words! For a vacation rental owner, there is no greater satisfaction than when the neighbors in the community speak highly about your guests! You got a "very cool guests" rating! (I will tell Randy!) Yes, Casa Vista Verde has A/C in all the house, because I want my guests to feel at home, like you mentioned. We have a "Pro-line" pool table, a ping pong table, and a Foosball table as well. The beaches in Isabela are super nice, but the real fun begins when you shower the sand off in our outdoors shower, and come up with your own family & friends gaming tournaments! We have 2 bathrooms, 3 LCD TVs, 3 Hammocks .... yada, yada, yada. Sorry, got carried away, coming back to your review, I highly recommend your family to the entire worldwide vacation rental community! Please come back soon and tell your family and friends about Casa Vista Verde Isabela, Dream House & Vacation Paradise! (They can Google it as well) Jose
