Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Nancy,

I tried a few times to enter my review, but I keep getting some kind of error message. See below. Attached is a copy of my review. Maybe you can post it. Thanks again! - Kristie

Where do I begin? This was an absolutely perfect location, and accommodation for me and my family. We stayed here for a week in April 2013. There were a total of 7 of us. The house was perfectly accommodating for all. We each had our separate spaces, but a place that we could all come together as well. We had breakfast on the front porch each morning, and finished each evening on the porch. We even grilled out back one evening, which was awesome, and found all the equipment needed to grill out back as well. The house was equipped with everything you could possibly need. Extra linens, pillows, blankets, and towels. The kitchen had all things needed and then some. There were even spices, and cooking oil in the cabinet, coffee, foil, ziplock baggies and a few other things that came in handy. Nothing has been over looked. It truly was an awesome stay.

The location is perfect as well. Before arriving, I was apprehensive because our flight came in to Rafael Hernandez airport (in Aguadilla) at 4 am. I feared if we got lost, there would be no one to ask where to go at that hour. The directions from the airport to the house couldn't have been more simple. The house is truly not more than 5 minutes away from the airport. It is very easy to get to, and is only 2 minutes from the beach. There are many shops nearby, and the drive to San Juan is less than 2 hours. It makes for a very easy day trip into San Juan.

The owner Nancy is really nice as well. She wants to make certain that her guests are enjoying their stay, and is eager to do whatever might be necessary to correct any issues that arise.

The house looks EXACTLY as it appears in the pictures. Neat, clean and absolutely beautiful. No false advertising here. I can't say enough wonderful things about the house. I would stay here again, and again, and again, as long as Nancy will have me.

A big thumbs up for this place!

Everything about this, our first visit to "La Isla del Encanto" was just great. The house is beautiful, clean and fully loaded with everything you may need to have a wonderful time.

Nancy, in addition to having the house in excellent condition, is an amazing person and ready to help instantly! And when I say instantly, I really mean it. We had a little inconvenient the night we arrived. I sent a text message, not expecting to hear back from Nancy until the next day. But no, within minutes I got a response, and first thing in the morning the repair man was there together with the house-keeper to ensure everything was ok. Many thanks Nancy for helping us to have a wonderful time.

Really, if you are staying at this house you have everything you need. Definitely a place to stay if I visit Aguadilla again.

Thank you Nancy!!

Beautiful, Comfortable, Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful stay for me and my family. We were so relieved to find that everything we could think of to need for the beach or to hang out on the property was already thought of for us and made available. The owner made herself available for any questions and was gracious with her time and her home. It was very clean, very neat, and each of the rooms had its own airconditioner which was wonderful for our stay. The washer and dryer was amazing to have when we came home from the beach, which was literally 5 minutes away from the property, we were able to wash all of the towels and swimsuits for the next days excursions. There was more than enough space for the six adults and one child in our party. Easily another four adults could have stayed. It was a beautiful property, in a quiet location. Wonderful for a family to relax and just enjoy. It was a plus to have wifi, and cable television on the days or evenings we needed to just relax... there were even games for us to play on the evenings that we stayed in. Overall it was wonderful and I would definitely use this property again. Thanks so much Nancy!

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We went to PR for a christmas vacation, and the house was perfect, we had everything we needed as we were staying at our own home. The balcony at front was great for breakfast and afternoon coffee. The patio was a great place to relax. Nancy was very profesional and attentive to our needs. We would definitely stay there again.

Excelente lugar para pasar vacaciones. Cerca de la playa, las cascadas, la bolera y de otros lugares de diversión, así como de comercios importantes. Pero a la vez es un lugar ideal para descansar ya que el lugar es muy tranquilo. Me gustaría regresar.

Golf: Punta Borinquen Golf Course - Aguadilla

Built in 1840 for the US Air Force Golf Aficionados stationed at the former Ramey Base, this 18 hole semi-flat course with breathtaking views of the sea, was played by such well known Generals as Dwight D. Eisenhower. It is now a public golf course. Its straight and open fairways are well maintained and cooled by sea breezes. Though there are no lakes due to the high elevation, there is an abundance of sand traps and a strong westerly crosswind that provides a constant challenge.
