Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Cabo Rojo - Casa Etienne

House, 3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

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 4 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 Cabo Rojo

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.

The Place To Be

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house and Boquerón. Tastefully decorated, very comfortable and roomy, with fabulous views from every balcony. What could be more wonderful than enjoying your morning coffee with a view of the Caribbean Sea? Only the spectacular views of the sparkling sky coupled with the cool evening breeze. This house was amazing to come home to after a long day of adventuring around the island as well as a comfy spot to spend the day relaxing and enjoying some quiet time. Arnaldo was very responsive from the very beginning of the rental process and throughout our stay. A really great experience all the way around, highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! We are really glad that you enjoyed your visit to the Island and the features and amenities of our home. I am glad that not only our family, but many of our guests also find this home very special, and a wonderful place to create great memories in Puerto Rico. We continue making improvements and maintaining that high level of fun and sophistication that we, as well as our guests, come to expect in a vacation home suitable for the great experiences that Puerto Rico has to offer. Thank you so much for your visit and this wonderful review!

Relaxing in paradise with all the conveniences....

  • 5 of 5

We just spent two weeks in this wonderful location. We love it!! The home was well appointed and the views outstanding. We were quite comfortable. Loved Boqueron and all it had to offer and loved coming back to chill at his wonderful house. Everything we needed was there and since we love to cook it was great to do so in the evening when we just wanted to enjoy the company of our friends/family.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review! We love this house and its location a great deal, and we are so glad that the things that make it so wonderful and beautiful for us, also appeal in the same way to those who visit it. Boqueron, and Puerto Rico in general, offer a wonderful variety of sights and activities sure to appeal to all visitors. If Seafood is your thing, the Boqueron, and Joyuda area nearby contain a great list of culinary experiences and choices. For those interested in cooking themselves, a short visit to Puerto Real (less than 10 minutes away) will open up your choices to the catch of the day. Whether that is fish, lobster, crab, and everything in between. During the weekend's evenings, the Little Town of Boqueron comes really alive and offers a great assortment of night experiences ranging from the food street vendors offering oysters and the like, including the famous "Pinchos" (sort of a Kabob) of Shark, Red Snapper, and other varieties of meat (including chicken, beef and pork) to the Karaoke bars, and the exciting party and family atmosphere on its streets. They are is certainly something for everyone of us!

Felt Like a King...If Scarface had a Puerto Rican getaway this would be it!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I was hesitant at first since this was my first time renting through VRBO. However, the owner's professionalism and the easy payment/deposit process got rid of any concerns. The instructions were flawless and once we arrived at the house the first thing I noticed was how clean the house was. I was very impressed with all the cooking tools and extras that come with the house. One day we wanted to go to the beach and there was a cooler for us to use. Another day we felt like snorkeling and we had multiple sets to choose from. One day we got rained in due to Tropical Storm Bertha but we just sat back and enjoyed the tropical storm from the comfort of the houses many balconies. I hope to come back to this great house again in the near future.

Owner's Response: Thank you Alexander for your review! Yes, the house is stocked with many typical things one needs in a place so close to the Beach and other attractions. In addition to the things that you indicated, we also provide a separate set of towels for the house and for the Beach. We make use of our home every chance we get and we feel that when something that would be nice to have on our vacation, would be nice to have for others to share and experience as well, hence, we make it available whenever possible. Our house inventory is constantly improving to support that great vacation experience that we all seek and expect from a home like this. Regards!

****The absolute BEST*****

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this house couldn't of been any better. The owner was awesome and attentive to all of our needs and questions. His details were thorough and the posted pictures accurately represent the property. I am a bit OCD and this place was thoroughly cleaned prior to our arrival. I stayed at two other properties while vacationing in Puerto Rico, and this is the only one I would actually recommend. The owner tasks great pride in taking care of this home and his guest and I would without a doubt stay here again. Thank you Arnaldo for making our stay so enjoyable!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! My kids complain sometimes that we are clean freaks (trying to avoid their chores I suppose). I am really glad when our guests note the effort and dedication of our cleaning crew trying to make our home a very special place for spending a few days in Puerto Rico. We continue having a large number of repeat guests every year, and as you mentioned, the thorough preparation that our home receives for every visit is an important factor and consideration when our guests make their future visit plans.

Beautiful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from our vacation in PR and a fantastic stay at Casa Etienne, beautiful home with better than expected accommodations and views. House has everything you need and is very clean and well maintained.

We enjoyed the cool breezes from the balconies and the nearby beaches just a short drive from the house. Arnaldo was easy to work with and provided quick assistance when needed. We’ll definitely consider this rental on our next visit to PR! Definitely recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We use our home several times a year, and every time we visit, we try to update and add to the entire stock throughout the house. We love the shopping as much as the feeling of been surrounded by well crafted and quality items in our home. Consequently, our guests enjoy and partake into this obsession of been in a beautiful place, surrounded by beautiful things, all designed to make your stay, as well as ours, a very pleasant and upscale experience. Cheers!
