About Tina Piper

We live in Carolina Beach, NC and are a family of four. Not to exclude our small zoo of animals that we love and call our pets. We love to surf, adventure, and explore.

Tina Piper purchased this house in 2015

Why Tina Piper chose Borinquen

PR and Aquadilla is what my wife and I looked for all over the world. This is our point B in life. A great place where you can walk the beach without a care in the world, your kids can play in the neighborhood without concern. A surfboard accidentally left out overnight will be there in the morning. The surf gets as good as anywhere. In the end, it just felt like home.

What makes this house unique

There's also the extra benefit of having an ocean view and a working lighthouse in the backyard. It is possible to check the surf and wind from the backyard. When there is surf you can hear it from the bedroom.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Stayed from 1/11- 1/18-17 And had a blast!

The house is very roomy and peaceful. We (6) all chipped in and loaded up on groceries and saved a ton of money.

Towels, sheets, pans and cooking utensils and even an outdoor grill are all there to facilitate unpacking and get down to the business of surfing!

The backyard overlooks the ocean and adjacent to the lighthouse (faro) where we spent our evenings rehashing the days adventures (plenty thanks to Pig Surf Tours) . If you're going surfing in Aguadilla this is the best place to stay!

Notes:
Great house, close the some of the best surf. It is on the corner of the island, so N. swells are biggest by the house, and aquadilla with bridges and playgrounds in only 10 minutes away when the surf is pumping for smaller perfect surf. There is a skatepark, and water park within walking distance. The movie theater is only 20 min, next to Wal-Mart. This is a great location for family's, surfers, couples, and anyone who wants to explore and enjoy the west end of Puerto Rico. In addition, it is only 2 minutes to BQN airport

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not much on writing reviews, but felt I owed it to the owner and the property manager for the exceptional service they provided. They were so kind and helpful throughout the entire process. The rental house was much more than we had imagined. Everything we needed was there, including beach chairs, towels, coolers and even a hose to wash off when we got back from surfing. The location was perfect and so close to Wilderness, Surfers Beach and Jobos. The neighborhood was quite nice and we felt very safe staying there. Needless to say, I look forward to staying here again!

Perfect house, safe neighborhood, great location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect rental property. The owner and the property manager were both very helpful and were a pleasure to work with. The house is very spacious and the beds are so comfortable. The house had beach chairs, hammock, snorkels/masks, sand toys, umbrella, cooler, and beach towels available for our use. We were so thankful for all the beach extras. We cannot wait to return to PR. We will definitely stay at this property again.

Great location on the NW corner of Puerto Rico for quick access to world class surfing breaks.

  • 5 of 5

This house and it's location was perfect for our surfing vacation. It's convenient drive for (numerous world class surfing breaks, Ramey Bakery, good local restaurants and airport). The pictures really don't do this home justice, we really loved the large wall mount TV in the living room, we were able to hook up our laptop using the WiFi provided and watch The World Surfing League live competition from Australia. The house was VERY well equipped, kitchen was great for cooking, the home was spacious and inviting, plenty of room and comfort for six adults. I recommend to all!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great house with everything you need- lovely neighbourhood, close to everything. The property manager is really nice and easily reachable. The house is spacious and very clean. Our only reccomendation is that you bring your own towels. Other than that, we have only good things to say about our stay at El Faro!
