Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Isabela - LOVELY OCEAN FRONT- PH

1 master suite, 1 master, 1 bedroom, 3 bathrooms- 6 sleeps

Haudimar, located in Isabela, the northwestern Puerto Rican Shore, is a secluded enclave comprised of a 2,400 sq. Feet- two story penthouse with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Mountains, breath taking 180 degrees views of the Atlantic Ocean and wild sand dunes are some of the hallmarks of Haudimar.

Strategically located 8 minutes from the the Aguadilla's Rafael Hernandez Airport (BQN) where you can hop in Jet Blue from JFK or Continental from Newark Int'l. Airport and be here in minutes or 1:45 minutes from San Juan Int'l airport.

A space to unwind: A dream home away from home can best describe the feeling of Haudimar. Attonishing mountain views and breath taking ocean views are hallmark features of Haudimar both visible from its private balcony and the open-air-'L shape' terrace. The complex is designed with a pool with views to the Ocean, playground for kids and a gezebo for activites. Inside, the apartment have a gourmet kitchen and inside and outside dining areas for group gatherings. With one elegant master suites, one master room and one two bed room, the apartment accommodates up to 6 guests or family members in its own 2,400 sq.ft living space.

Complex Amenities: Exclusive Beach Boardwalk Gazebo and tables Fitness Center Basketball and Tennis Court Walking distance to world class surfing Jobos and Wilderness beaches and windsurf Shacks beach

Beach and Adventure- Surfing, Windsurfing, Kite surf: Jobos Beach- You can't leave Isabela without dropping by Jobos Beach. Ask about what locals consider the better sites to surf and Jobos Beach in Isabela was always mentioned.

Shacks Beach- Probably the most popular spot for kiteboarders and wind surfers is Shacks Beach. Come here to enjoy water sports.

Shacks Beach- For snorkelers, this is pretty nice as well. There's about 50 yards of nice water between the reef and shore. But watch out for the kiters. As with most ocean with coral, the bottom here has its share of sea urchins!Make sure you wear booties.

Nature and Adventure- Caving and : Camuy Cavern- There are only two other places in the world where you will find a cave system as massive or dramatic as the Ro Camuy Cave Park - and neither of them has a tropical underground river thundering through it!

Only a small part of the complex is open to the public: three crater-like sinkholes and two caves... but what a spectacular part it is! Visitors ride a trolley that descends into a sinkhole lined with dense tropical vegetation while a guide describes the sights. After a walk across ramps and bridges and through the dramatically illuminated, 170-foot high Cueva Clara, another tram shuttles you to a platform overlooking the 400 foot deep Tres Pueblos Sinkhole.

Horseback Riding- There are various nearby Companies that will offer a variety of possibilities for your horseback riding adventure, 7 days a week.

Great experience.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfect, very spacious, clean, equipped with everything you need. The location is great, facing the ocean and very private within the complex, pool is one minute away. The area is near great restaurants, beaches and activities, and finally the owners are very friendly and willing to please the guests.

Lovely and fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay couldn't have been better. The three bedroom penthouse condo is spectacular, inside and out. Beautifully maintained and managed by the charming Carlos and Ruth, it overlooks breathtaking vistas of the Atlantic crashing onto a perfect shoreline. Have your coffee on the lower balcony and plan your walk to Jobos Beach, a short stroll to the right. It's a world class surfing beach, and attracts surfers of all abilities. Have your glass of wine on the roof terrace and plan the next day's wander down to Shacks Beach to the left. If you're looking for some of the best snorkeling and swimming in Puerto Rico, look no further. It's right here on your doorstep.

There are several relaxed, funky bars and restaurants in Isabella and Aguedilla (a five minute drive away). Or if you want to cook in Carlos and Ruth's kitchen, the nearby Econo-Mart is well stocked.

Carlos and Ruth have a piece of heaven here. The service they provide is second to none. If there were a sixth star, they'd have that one too! Matt and Amanda Frewer.

Awesome

  • 4 of 5

This condo has an amazing location. Can't get tired of enjoying the view and listening to the crashing waves, even with the windows open at night. Carlos is a gracious host, provides advice, follows up with text/calls, and sincerely cares that everything is to his clients’ satisfaction. We loved it. The condo is well equipped with many useful items. The wireless Internet worked fine. Maybe a few beach towels would be a valuable addition. The location of the only TV in the master bedroom is not really convenient. Also there is a certain privacy challenge with access to the terrace through the master bedroom (but there is also a balcony on the lower floor). A couple of lounge chairs to lie on the terrace would also be nice. Some clothes dressers in the secondary bedrooms would add the last star to the rating. The Haudimar complex is very nice with good security – many units seem to be weekend owners and/or occupants who work during the day making it uncrowded during our stay. Tennis court is playable and the pool area is attractive. The gym is disappointing. This condo is a bit more expensive than other condos in the complex – but the ocean front view and sounds made it a worthwhile upgrade for us. Easy walk along the beach to Jobos beach (with a beautiful view of it from the condo). We also walked to Shacks beach in the other direction and came back by road – probably one+ hour round trip. Eclipse restaurant at Villa Montana (at Shacks) was a worthwhile splurge, the Mexican restaurant 40 seconds by car from Haudimar was nice, and we also enjoyed an inexpensive but decent meal overlooking the beach at Jobos (restaurant with pool tables out front).

Owner's Response: Thanks Richard for you constructive comments and recommendations. I do agree the gym is not up to par. We did have beach chairs but lounge chairs certainly may fit better the theme of the apartment... :-) Please come back soon and please spread the word in Canada!

Beautiful Views

  • 4 of 5

This rental units best feature is the roof top deck with amazing views. We were able to see several whales during our week stay. Jobos Beach is just a short walk away with several restaurants. Shack's Beach is a little longer walk in the other direction where some of our group snorkeled.

The apartment is probably best suited to families because the master suite on the top level has the only TV in the unit. And walking through the upstairs bedroom is the only way to access the roof top deck. One bedroom only has twin beds and was small. But it worked out okay for us to have 3 couples stay in this rental. The pool area was very clean and quiet. The kitchen had everything we needed. We grilled out on the roof top deck several times.

There were a few issues with the lights in a couple of the fans and the living room air conditioner did not work. The bedroom air conditioners managed to keep the living area cool though. Carlos was very prompt to respond to any questions or concerns we had. He was willing to help us out to make a vacation as enjoyable as possible.

This rental unit was a good central location for getting to several sights that we wanted to visit including Rincon, the waterfall at San Sebastian, snorkeling, etc.

Owner's Response: Janet, thanks for your review and comments. We only cater US, Canadian and other foreign markets and understand the bar is very high as to the expectations and standards. And we are always looking to improve the experience of our guests. Still, some clarification are appropiate at junture: you are right, the apartment not only may be best suited for families (remember is my home owned by a family) but couples and non-couple as well as we have 3 rooms all with a separate bathroom….and 2,400 sq ft of free space to hang out and big enough to get lost within the house (at least my daughter do so :-) ) Most homes (if not all) have some small rooms and some big rooms. In our case, our home goes beyond the standard providing one master bedroom, one Master Suite and one standard room that fits most US standards: 11x11. As to the A/C in the living room, we eliminated it three years ago and it was indicated as such in homeaway. Sorry, about that details we missed to discuss. As to the TV, I understand your point, we only thought one was good enough as most of the time is what we all do at home. The reason is upstairs is because downstairs they don’t last a year because of the proximity of the beach.
Where do you live?

FANTASTIC!!!

  • 5 of 5

Carlos and Ruth have a real gem! This apartment is beautiful and well stocked for a great vacation. I was a little worried about the complex before we arrived, but we found the entire property to be lovely. The pool area was pristine. The "gym" was passable with decent equipment, but a 20 minute drive takes you to a HUGE gum in Isabela with everything you ;might need including spinning classes. Plus only 1 km away is a gorgeous bike path that goes along the beach and through some nice scenery for a bike ride or a run.

The beach is beautiful with Jobos to the right and Shacks to the left. My only sadness was the amount of garbage in the area around Jobos (NONE in the apartment complex). Maybe because of the holidays?

Carlos was very attentive with suggestions for restaurants, places to explore, grocery stores, etc. We had a shower head break during our stay and within an hour or two he had someone there to replace it.

I would suggest that if you stay here you should have a car. You can walk to a few restaurants and a TINY market with very few things, but a car will get you to some great places to explore and the grocery store (Econo) in town.

The only TV in the place at this time is in the big bedroom upstairs, so if you're going to watch a football game together, make your bed. Also this apartment has such great views because it is on the 3rd floor. There is no elevator, so if you have an elderly family member, this might not be a great place for you.

If you are athletic, surfer, kitesurfer, snorkeler, jogger, adventurous, this is THE place to stay!!!!

Thank you Carlos and Ruth!
