Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Look us up on Facebook (Casa Etienne Vacation Rental) for additional information.

The property was purchased on 2003 and the home construction was finished on 2005.

The property features nearly and acre of land seating near the top of a hill that overlooks the natural bay of Boquerón and its fishing village, as well as the Caribbean Sea. Great views of surrounding mountains and open green spaces are available from every room. The house features 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, a modern kitchen with plenty of cabinet space and all the utensils and appliances (all stainless steel) a good cook will enjoy. Each bedroom contains a mini-split air conditioner unit to provide comfort while sleeping in those warm Caribbean nights.

During the day, due to its location and the surrounding topography, the house is constantly surrounded by the cool breezes of the Sea. The doors of the great room open fully to allow a sense of openness that places the occupants of the house in touch with the great open spaces and views that surround the property. The house has a constantly growing Caribbean garden with many delightful flowers unique to the islands, and some young but rapidly growing fruit trees.

The house sits at the end of the street with only green open spaces on most sides. The neighborhood is composed entirely of custom homes much of which are also vacation homes to owners residing in other parts of the island, and the United States. Due to this fact, the neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful, and the few neighbors that inhabit their homes year around, are extremely friendly, courteous, and helpful.

After staying a few days in our home, you too will come to understand why we choose this very special location, why this house is so special to us, and why we want to share it with you.

Welcome to our home and to the great island of Puerto Rico!!!

About Arnaldo Torres

Currently residing in the beautiful state of California, USA. Me and my wife, originals from Puerto Rico, always dreamed of owning a custom vacation home in the island. We live and work full-time in California, and enjoy traveling around the world, but every chance we get, we find our way to the warmth and the sun of Puerto Rico. Great food, great people, and nature at its best! NOTE: Map below does not show correct location. For better location info, go to: http://home.earthlink.net/~arnaldo/index_files/Page591.htm

Arnaldo Torres purchased this house in 2005

Why Arnaldo Torres chose Boquerón

Been Native to the Island of Puerto Rico and knowing real well the different great get-aways in Puerto Rico is how we decided to buy and build our vacation home in this unique part of the island. As far away as you can get from San Juan, its traffic, and the crowds, we located in an area surrounded by great green open spaces, many of the greatest beaches of the island within minutes, near many of the great seafood restaurants of the west coast, and yet, close enough to some of the island largest cities for great fun activities at night, shopping, and site seeing.

What makes this house unique

The house is located near the top of a hill in nearly an acre of land with great views of the natural bay of Boquerón, and the Caribbean sea. Great views, continuously flowing breezes year around, open green spaces all around, quiet, peaceful, and private. These are the attributes that we value and those are the attributes our home embodies.

Breathtaking hilltop view of Caribbean Sea

  • 5 of 5

You feel secluded but still just minutes away from Boqueron Beach and Cabo Rojo lighthouse and Caves. Nice spacious house, enough room

for everyone to either be together or do your own thing. Outside balconies and upper level loft spacious. Beds were very comfortable. I would definitely return and recommend to friends.

Best Pina Coladas at Los Ramos. Went back few times.

Owner's Response: We are really glad that you had a great time on the house and the Island. The Island has recovered substantially since Hurricane Maria, and most of it is back to the normal daily routine. So far this year, our guests have experienced a restored, invigorated, warmth, happy, and welcoming Island. Some of our recent guests this year have been, among many other fun activities, deep sea fishing of our coast and having a blast at it. Fun and good times under the glorious Caribbean Sun are finally back!

We enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

The house is really nice, clean and has plenty of space. We had five adults and three kids and there was enough place for us all. Arnaldo was very helpful and responsive for any issue or questions we had. Once after the rain the water was coming out of the electric outlet in master bedroom but Arnaldo responded quickly and sent the electrician to disconnect it the next day. There’s no grill, we missed that a little, and the beach was 5 min drive (nothing close enough to walk) but still we have no regrets renting the house in this part of PR, it seemed less damaged from hurricanes and the beaches were really nice. Our favorite was La Playela (30 min drive). There is no Internet though WiFi is working fine and the water is somewhat warm but due to solar water heater it’s never hot and most times is cold, it was fine with adults but for toddlers it was cold.

Owner's Response: I am glad that you had a great time on the Island and enjoyed your stay. As you indicated, after the Hurricane, one of the issues we faced, was water coming in through a Electrical receptacle in the master bedroom. We had an Electrician track the issue and seal the point of entry. It seems that the point of entry was not correctly found, or that it needs additional sealing. In any case, the Electrician will be back to track and hopefully solved this issue. As part of the steps taken to address this issue, and others created by the Hurricane, we had our entire roof sealed including all pipes and potential water entries on the roof itself. As you may know, we had disabled permanently the electrical outlet affected. The other issue faced after the Hurricane was the destruction of our Solar Water Heater. We purchased a new, more modern and larger capacity Solar Water Heater. It was installed back in October 2017. I have been to the house two additional times since its installation, and we have had 4 groups through the house since then, and no one has reported issues with water heating. Thank you for raising this issue as we will make sure that the Solar Water Heater gets checked as this is indeed an important issue, and fortunately, the Heater is still well within its warranty period. Regarding Beaches, I totally agree with you, La Playuela is my favorite Beach as well. It is situated in a Nature preserved next to the Old Lighthouse in a really beautiful setting. Fortunately for us and our guests, The house seats about half way between two other very popular beaches: Boqueron Beach and Buye Beach. When I do not want to do the long drive to La Playuela, I visit either one of these beaches. My boys and I walk the 2.5 miles to either one if it is early in the day, or drive otherwise. It is about a 20-25 minutes walk, and it is beautiful. We understand not everyone may want to walk the distance to either one of these beaches, but with enough time and motivation, it would be an enjoyable experience. Just before I finish my notes, I want to express to you our appreciation for your visit. Not only to our home, but also to the Island. Additionally, I want offer sincere apologies for the deficiencies that you experienced. This is a beautiful place, that my family and friends enjoy greatly. And our guest are as well beneficiaries of our attention to detail, and of the love and passion with which we take care of this beautiful home. Kind regards, Arnaldo.

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! From the view to the layout this home takes the cake! Clean with lots of glass windows and doors to take in the view of Boquerón bay. Each level has a deck.

And the home is fully furnished. Just 3 minutes from downtown Boquerón. I will stay here again and would recommend it to any one I know whose traveling to that area in the future. The place is awesome!

WE LOVED THIS HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5

This house was large, airy, comfortable and spotless when we arrived. The living room doors open up into the balcony and time spent there was the highlight of our stay. Gentle breezes blew through the house all day long as it is located at the top of a hill. A second balcony with tables and chairs and umbrellas was also wonderful to spend time on. The views from the house are breathtaking. Two beaches were less than 10 min away and there is a market down the street. There are good bars and restaurants within a few minutes of the house.The kitchen met all of our needs and the furniture was comfortable, appropriate, and attractive. The fans and air conditioners were in perfect working order and the water pressure good. The owner provided enough towels (both beach and bath) and sheets/pillows for the 5 beds and the 8 people we had staying there. We truly enjoyed our stay and plan on renting it again when we return to Puerto Rico. All 7 of my family members who stayed here would agree on this review.
