Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Río Grande - La Casita de Aguada

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1/2 block from quiet beach

La Casita de Aguada - The deserted unspoiled sandy beaches, palm trees & soft breezes make it a perfect vacation get-away! Come stay in our fully furnished home – ½ block from the ocean with local neighborhood flavor! For 11 continuous years, we have had a great time loving our home in Aguada and having such fun sharing it with you - all of my loyal returnees and those stopping by for the first time.

The fishermen will be happy to sell you part of the day’s catch of fresh fish! After a day at the beach, wander off to one of the neighborhood cantinas or restaurants for a taste of local culture. Need something yummy for breakfast? The local panaderia is only a short walk away. There are local bodegas to find your needed supplies and fresh baked goodies. Rustic and relaxed yet ready to provide all your needs.

La Casita de Aguada is our home away from home, but we can't be there all the time (yet). When we're not there, we would like to extend an invitation for you to enjoy our little slice of heaven!

About Valerie & Ron Harrison

I was born and raised in California. While my husband was stationed in Missouri (US Army), we got a hankering for the West Coast (NorCal). We visited Puerto Rico in 2004 - my sister has a great eco-vacation spot in Vieques (an island off the east coast of Puerto Rico) - and we realized that our vision of 'West Coast' can change. We returned to Puerto Rico the following month and were so fortunate to find La Casita de Aguada.

Valerie & Ron Harrison purchased this house in 2005

Why Valerie & Ron Harrison chose Aguada

We were looking for the great beaches of Puerto Rico and a comfortable home in an authentic Puerto Rican neighborhood. We enjoy meeting the locals, not hanging with the tourists. We discovered this beautiful property 1/2 block from the beach. Perfect!

What makes this house unique

The beach, the rural feeling, the friendliness of the neighborhood make us return again and again. We love having the beach to ourselves. We enjoy local restaurants within a short drive or walk, getting home-made pastries and sandwiches at the panaderia and having a drink at the bodega, a block away. La Casita de Aguada has air conditioning, cable TV and access to a washer and dryer. It is a perfect spot to relax or to explore the local area ... Aguada, Rincon, Aguadilla, Moca.

Amazing House, Amazing Location, Amazing Neighbors

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough good things about our stay here in Aguada. The house was beautiful and fun, clean, comfortable and complete. There was nothing missing, but the caretakers went above and beyond to make sure we had every detail we could imagine. The back bedrooms stayed nice and cool with the AC, but the breezy, covered outdoor space with the grill, table, and chairs was where we spent all of our time.

The neighborhood is a colorful, lived-in local area and we truly loved being in the middle of Puerto Rican life. The neighbors were friendly but in no way intrusive. It was just a very fun experience overall to be there with all the locals. Jesus and Maria truly made us comfortable and at home, checked in on us frequently and provided us much more than we could have ever asked for.

The beach (a five minute walk away) was truly gorgeous, a fun area to play in the surf, and even had turtle nesting sites! We went there in the evenings and to our joy watched the sunset as the local youths went out surfing. I wish we would have spent more time at our beach, but there was so much to see in the immediate vicinity between Aguadilla and Rincon that we would be so happy to come back here year after year. I don't think we would ever get bored.

All in all, there was not one problem with this property, but what really made it amazing was the customer service, local flavor, and beautiful location. If you are debating at all, don't! Book now!

great place for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great house has everything you could possible need. No hassles the care taker lives right next door and is incredibly helpful and friendly. Nice location steps from the beach and located in a nice neighborhood. House is very close to Rincon and many beaches very laid back and way better than staying in a hotel room. Definitely will return if I head back to P.R. in future.

perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a wonderful neighborhood with great people. Jesus and his wife are great. The location is perfect for exploring the west part of the island. It's located between Aguada and Ricon, this allowed us to visits the beaches between Jobos and Combated beach with a very short drive while enjoying the local culture of the west islanders. Puerto Rico is a beautiful island, the west is by far the best because of the people and culture. The locals are very nice, helpful and patient. I strongly recommend this property and location if you want to experience the local culture of island living. It is great! We felt safe and welcome. It was the best vacation we have ever taken.

Nearby attractions, besides the surf practically lapping your toes, are the nearby towns of Rincon, Aguadilla, and Mayaguez. Food, drink, music and fun are just down the road. Pack up the car and head for the observatory in Arecibo, casinos in Mayaguez, the bioluminescent bay at Cabo Rojo, wander the towns, meet the people, chill. You'll find me out in the water!
