About the area.........
Isabela, Puerto Rico is located in the quiet North-West corner of Puerto Rico. Just a short 3 1/2 hour direct flight from JFK or Newark and there are no passports required for US Citizens.
Our home is just 10 minutes from the small Aguadilla Airport (airport code BQN) or a manageable drive from San Juan (SJU)(1hr 45min)
Situated at the end of a dead-end street, our house is just 100 steps from a quiet, private 5+ mile strip of undeveloped beach front. Isabela is a very serene area with very little to do...just simple pleasures.
The house is equipped with television with a nice library of DVDs. We DO NOT have cable TV........meet your family! enjoy the getaway!
If you need to be in touch with the cyber world, there is a nearby coffee shop with internet access, you can bring your laptop or use their desktop.

Our VERY nearby attractions include 'Tropical Trailrides', just a short walk down the street, Ola Lola's Garden Bar, a lovely way to experience the local flavor, Villa Montana, a nearby quiet upscale resort w/restaurants and spa services on site, Shacks Beach, an amazing snorkeling/diving beach and surfing beach.
Our Isabela Beach House can be your headquarters to explore and enjoy the many nearby activities and attractions. Within minutes, you'll be at prime spots for World Class surfing, windsurfing and kite boarding, scuba diving and snorkeling. Only 10 minutes away is the 18-hole Punta Borinquen Golf Course, President Eisenhower's favorite, literally located at the northwest tip of the island on a plateau overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Across the street is the Punta Borinquen Tennis Club and nearby are bowling alleys, running track, theaters, shopping centers and a water park. The new ice skating rink provides cool times. Also only 10 minutes away is a new beginner to extreme skateboard park that is also a little kids play ground and water park.
The property is very versatile:
~ Great for an extended family vacation. The house is big enough that everyone can vacation together yet there is plenty of room for everyone to have their own space :)
~ The house is great for a girls get away! Spa services are available just a short walk down the beach at 'Villa Montana'. We can also recommend a great masseuse!
~Awesome family house! The island offers a list of great daily adventures: rain forest with water falls, caving, horseback riding, beach beach beach! (list at house will give you lots of choices and details)
We are a family of four who live and work hard on Long Island, New York. We love spending our vacation time at 'The Lone Palm' but also love sharing! Hope you enjoy the home as much as we do!
Eileen Katt purchased this house in 2006
We first visited 'Shacks Beach' in 1999 and fell in love! We purchased 'The Lone Palm' in 2006. As a surfing/diving family, we find the area ideal. Located in the North-West corner of the island it is easy to find the perfect break on any given day.
Although the house is located at Shacks Beach it is not in a congested area, it is located at the end of a dead end street. A very serene setting with no traffic or noise.....except for a few horses riding by and a talkative nearby rooster :)
We are literally 100 steps from the ocean, accessed by a path through a canopy of palm trees.
Our very own beach offers amazing Kite Boarding, Snorkeling, Diving, Swimming and Beach Combing.........Miles of uninterrupted beach to stroll!
Within a short walking distance you'll find 'Ola Lola's' garden bar & cafe as well as Tropical Trail Rides, Villa Montana Resort, & Eclipse Restaurant.
We had a great week staying on the second floor at The Lone Palm. Owner and manager were full of good advice and very pleasant. Beds were very comfortable and we loved sleeping and waking to the sound of crashing waves. Sitting on the deck overlooking the green field with a beautiful breeze and view of the ocean was our idea of heaven. One of the most relaxing vacations we have had. Isabela has the the option of doing nothing but beaching it or doing side trips. We loved it.
Awesome property have everything you need, great vacation with great friends !!!
The experience provided by the Lone Palm was truly amazing. The owners along with their local property overseer Danny made everything very easy and convenient. We very much enjoyed having morning coffee on the huge deck along with evening drinks after the sun set listening to the waves in the background. During the day the house is conveniently located to many activities including surf spots, local restaurants, fish markets, and scenic hikes to waterfalls. Our group of 6 all had nothing but good things to say and we all wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you so much for an amazing experience!
The Lone Palm was a pleasant surprise in our travels this year. The owners and the caretaker of the property were eager to help us in any way, provided everything we requested and then some and were extremely hospitable. The apartment was well maintained and comfortable and the location was a nice combination of private but centralized. Beaches, surfing, horseback riding, dining and much more. We plan on returning and thank everyone for making our stay so enjoyable.
Girls getaway was fabulous! There were 3 of us. My highlights were sitting in a chair on the beach (seriously paces from the house) with a book and the horseback riding. It is very well maintainedand clean with a quiet relaxed atmosphere.
The house host was attentive and checked in with us daily via text messaging to make sure we were set and encouraged us to ask any questions... And we did! We did not have many questions though because the owners were so informative before we even got there.
I can't wait until I return to Palm. It's a "no worries" kind of place :)
Just to let you all know, I did not get the slightest impression that the December party expressed.
We spent Christmas with our extended family ages 6 to 69. Everyone had a great time. The house is clean and well equipped. The location is great. The beach out front is beautiful and quiet. The house is very close to lots of activities. The house is on a quiet street but has easy access to other activities. We surfed each day at surfers beach, visited Rio Camuy, San Sebastián Waterfall, and visited Crashboats beach. The property manager was very friendly and helpful. We recommend this property for family vacations.
This house is located in a wonderful unique spot. Although the home is completely secluded it's within walking distance to :
-- Tropical Trail Rides, (for amazing beach riding),
-- Ola-Lola's Garden Bar ~ as of 10/2012 Ola Lola's serves Breakfast too! (perfect casual spot for a tropical drink or beer and a burger),

-- The 'Blue Hole' (Windsurfer magazine has called the best wave sailing in the Caribbean and what Skin Diver magazine has called the best snorkeling and diving in Puerto Rico),

-- Miles of uninterrupted sandy beach for long walks and beach combing!
