Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Boqueron - 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 Puerto Rico

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.

  • 5 of 5

We were worried the house wouldnt live up to the photos online, but boy were we wrong! The pictures dont do justice too just how beautiful this house is. Arnaldo was a pleasure to deal with from start to even adter we left the property. Great location, just the perfect place to spend your vacation. We look foward to coming back to Casa Etienne !

Beautiful home, gorgeous view, super friendly owner!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home sitting on a hilltop with an amazing view. The owner was extremely helpful with a few issues we had, was prompt to answer any texts and emails, and was super friendly. The locals were wonderful and the surrounding beaches were lovely. We had an amazing time and can't wait to visit again the next time we come back to Puerto Rico!

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We want to first thank you for opening up your beautiful home to us. We had all the comforts of home and that made our vacation an enjoyable one. The view from the balcony had us in awe and we started every morning on the balcony, drinking our coffee, and ended every night with big smiles on our faces. Check in and check out were a breeze and we always felt at ease because of how prompt the owner was in answering any and all questions. The beaches were definitely a plus. Boqueron is truly a beach town but had grocery stores and the like within 10 minutes driving distance. We were able to explore the western part of the island and highly recommend you take in the beauty the island has to offer. Playa Sucia and the Lighthouse are definite stops while staying here. We also recommend visiting the waterfall at San Sebastian. By the way, the jump from the cliff there was exhilarating. We will definitely be looking to stay at your house the next time we decide to visit PR. Again, thank you for making our vacation a memorable one!

Dan & Jen Castaneda and Family.

Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home from 6/10 to 6/17. I'm happy to have booked it as it was exactly what I wanted/needed. The home has a beautiful view that makes waking up in the morning a treat. It's also located very close to two amazing beaches. The locals in this area are very friendly and felt at home; always willing to share with me local secrets and hot spots. I also have to say that the home owner was great to work with. He always responded to any inquiries the same day I emailed him. He made the home booking as easy as possible. His home also has everything you would need for a stay there (towels, kitchen appliances, etc). If you're looking for a home in the west side, this is it!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! As mentioned in this review there is a World of treasures to discover about this area, and about Puerto Rico, when talking to the warm and friendly people that call Boqueron Home. Two of the most popular beaches are within walking distance to the house, and there are many more to discover and enjoy a bit farther away. Rich and fresh Seafood to taste and enjoy in little on-the-side of the road Kiosks, or in the long and more established Restaurants. Take a peek, and if you see a lot of locals, jump right in. A new gratifying experience awaits for you in every little corner of this place!

Excellent accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this house! Amazing views! Arnaldo was great to work with and ensured our stay was comfortable. Well equipped kitchen and lots of towels for the beach. We especially loved lounging on the deck in the evenings and enjoying the peaceful surroundings. There was a small grocery store a few minutes away that also had a pizza place in it. It was not far from an awesome beach. Make sure to try pinchos...we love them! A+!
