About Elizabeth Figueroa

Born and raised in Puerto Rico. Now living in Canada !

Elizabeth Figueroa purchased this house in 2014

Why Elizabeth Figueroa chose Yabucoa

EL Cocal is a very special place for me and my family. My grandparents bought a beach house when El Cocal was created 50 years ago. As a Kid my family used to spend weekends at the Beach House. This was and is my happy and safe place, lots of Great memories!!!!!

My family loved this place so much that my parents retired at the Beach house and I recently built two villas to keep coming every year with my husband and two beautiful boys. I want for them to experience what I experience as a child, tranquility, family time and quality of life.

If you are looking for your happy place this might be the one!!!

What makes this house unique

Beautiful views of the ocean and mountains!!!! Marine turtles lay their eggs on our beach between March and June!!!

Amazing Place! We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was simply amazing! The owners' were so welcoming and helpful and the setting is like paradise. One whole wall of the living area opens up so that the prevailing winds off the ocean blow through the house. There were wake boards and beach chairs for us to use. We loved the empanadas at the bar up hwy 901. We did lose power for entire day but the owners made things right, and new generators were being installed while we were there for our stay. We'll be back next year for a longer stay!

Owner's Response: Dietrich So happy that you and your friends enjoyed PR and Villa Mar!!!! I agree with you about the empanadas at EL HORIZONTE, they are delicious!!!! Thank You for your understanding about the electricity but was something that we didn't expect. The good thing is that there is a generator in place for your next visit!!! Thank You for being great guests, looking forward having you next year!!!! Elizabeth

Great vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to find the house just as it appeared in the photos, nice and clean, and with a great porch with a magnificent view. The porch was where we spent most of our time, with a cooling breeze that made it very relaxing. The beach was very nice, with trees providing shade. Leatherback turtles nest there, (although we did not see any turtles). Elizabeth, the owner, was staying right across the street, and was warm, helpful, and friendly. We also met her brother, parents, and other family members who were also very nice. Our family had a great time and we hope to come back some time.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to meet you guys and have you stayed at Vila Mar. Will love to see you again and hopefully next time you will be able to see the turtles. Cheers Elizabeth

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful and in a quiet, very safe and gated community. It is just steps from a beautiful beach. The beach was busy on the weekends, but, still far from crowded. The weekdays it almost felt like a private beach and if you were up to a walk to the end of the beach it was private! There is also a small protected area that is like a swimming pool with no waves from the ocean. It was so relaxing! If you are looking for a place to relax, feel safe, enjoy beautiful views and a great beach, this is your place. The home is new, very clean and well maintained. The owner was very attentive to my questions and we simply fell in love with the location and the people! We stayed as a family of four with our two teenagers and we all agree it was a GREAT choice for us. We plan on returning! I would highly recommend this home! Beautiful inside and a great location for a peaceful, relaxing vacation!

Pros: gated, very safe and quiet neighborhood, steps from a beautiful beach, home clean and modern, beautiful views. Air conditioners in bedrooms worked great and the breeze from the ocean kept living area (no AC) cool as we always had it opened to the porch that had additional seating and living area. Remote area that really felt like an escape and was so quiet and just lovely. We felt like we found a hidden gem!

Cons: remote from other activities (Airport and Old San Juan about 1.5 hours, Rainforest 1 hour, etc.) however, this adds to the charm of it! You absolutely must have a rental!

No wifi (again, it was really great to escape and my phone had great service if needed (AT&T).

No full size oven (but, we did discover we could easily survive with the small "toaster oven" provided for our needs and we cooked most of our meals on the grill or stove top!).

Owner's Response: Im so happy that you and your family had a great time!!!! We are adding a full size oven at the end of August and getting WIFI for an extra cost. To get to San Juan and airport can be 1.5 hours in traffic but without traffic and good directions it can take 45 min to an hour. Thank You for your review and cat wait to have you again as guests.

LOVED the beach!!

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a wonderful time.The directions given to us were helpful to a point and then we had to resort to using google maps along with the printed directions from Elizabeth to help us find our way.The house is about an hour or so out of San Juan and the airport. Look carefully at the pictures and you will be able to tell the house does not face directly towards the beach, you can see the beach over the top of the blue tin roof of the clubhouse.We did not have access to the clubhouse which included the basketball courts and netless volleyball court, the lock was broke and our keys would not work.The house is steps from the beach and as close to your own private beach as you can get.There were times when we were the only people out there it was amazing.If you like big waves then this is your place it was a workout at times and the four of us(my husband, and my 16 and 14 year old)had some scrapes and sore muscles to prove it.There was an area that had a rock break with calmer waters however this area was much more populated by the locals. We preferred the waves and couldn't have been happier with the beach.The sand was brown, not what we are used to, but it was much softer that that of the Florida beaches that we frequent.The house was located in a very quiet gated community. BRUSH UP ON YOUR SPANISH!! All of the rooms had window units however the main living areas did not and it became very hot as we were asked not to use the window units during the day. There are sliding glass doors across the whole front of the living room that we left open during the early mid morning it was very hot as the sun shines directly into the porch and living room but after the sun rose in the sky it wasn't so bad, we were at the beach or visiting the area during most of the day anyway and the window units cooled the bedrooms quickly. However one night our electricity went out and it became very hot in the night, the unit next to us had a generator but ours did not. There is a nearby Wal Mart and a few local fast food restaurants as well as a host of authentic places to eat. Don't plan on cooking as there is no full size oven in the house. There were 3 boogie boards, beach chairs, and sand toys in the outdoor storage. The house required a key to get in and if you locked up at night you also needed it to get out which I thought was a little scary in case there was a fire there was only one key, so remember where you put it at night! Overall the beach won us over

Owner's Response: Dear Guest Thank You so much for your review. Only this way we can get things better, so we appreciate your input! About the house view is the same one we have in the VRBO website. Beautiful views of the ocean and the club house, only steps to the beach. The beach has an area the is protected by rocks "La Posita" ( my favourite)and few local people love swimming there during the summer months, After that the beach is pretty empty most of the time. The waves vary from month to month. Sometimes is flat and other are perfect for boogie boards. There are air conditioning in every bedroom as well as ceiling fans. In the living area there is only ceiling fans because in PR we don't usually use air conditioning in the living areas because the electricity is very expensive. . There is always a ocean breeze , but take in consideration the July is on of the hottest months in PR. About having a generator we purchase one and should be install by mid August. About the full size oven we didn't think it was necessary because people prefer to cook on the gas stove , BBQ and if needed for a pizza, frozen foods etc. there is a small size oven , but will consider it for the near future. In case of emergency and you don't find a key to get out the front door, the back door is open only by lock. But thank you to mention it to remind future guests. Thank You for letting us know about the lock in the club house, it was fixed right away. The key from the beach opens the club house as well. Thats why there are basketballs for the guest to use in the basketball court. I encourage every guest to let us know when something is not working to fix it right away. Im glad that you had fun at the beach and thank you again for your input. Thanks Elizabeth
