Only a few steps to one of the most pristine and beautiful beaches in Puerto Rico, Villa Coqui is a classically styled and well equipped guest house ready for your perfect Caribbean vacation. This area of the island is known as the 'Garden of the Atlantic,' and it's easy to see why once you've spent just a short time here. This is truly a nature and water lovers paradise with miles of untouched and uncrowded beaches to explore. Snorkeling, kiteboarding, surfing, swimming, fishing, diving, windsurfing and many other watersports are available right out front or at the many surrounding spots within a short drive.
Villa Coqui has been designed in the spirit of traditional beach shacks by optimizing a tranquil, open common space and by minimizing distractions, bells, whistles and touristy knick-knacks. We've deliberately minimized decor and large scale entertainment centers to optimize your tranquil island experience. The decor includes original art of the surrounding area, cool tile floors throughout and simple, comfortable furniture. The expansive front windows provide brilliant light that give the main room an open, airy feel. Enjoy a good book on our 'L' couch, or plan an exciting day with your friends and family at the round kitchen table over fresh local mangos, papayas and oranges. Villa Coqui has plenty of ceiling fans throughout, which help provide great ventilation and bring the fresh Caribbean air direct to your senses. Escape the high rise condo/apartment complexes. Trade the beach hotel experience for a more intimate and private beach vacation.
Villa Coqui boasts 2 bedrooms with A/C in both: one holds a full bed; the other 2 bunk beds. Both rooms also have open, hanging closets. The beds are fitted with all organic, eco-safe, breathable cotton linens and pillow cases for a comfortable and natural deep sleep.
Other necessary amenities such as hot water, refrigeration, a gas range, toaster oven, blender, in-line tap water filter, cooking utensils, and dining ware are provided. The house is best suited for 4 people for maximum comfort and adequate living space; however, an additional person could be accommodated on the couch if needed). A stereo system and high speed internet with WIFI are set up for your enjoyment at the house.
Outside, you'll find landscaping that includes lemon, palm and aloe plants. Birds and other wildlife frequent the area including wild parrots, pelicans, tropicbirds, doves and cormorants. There's also an outdoor shower behind the house -- perfect for a fresh air rinse after a great beach day. Our porch comes complete with chairs and a small table for relaxing over a morning coffee, book or chat. There's also a charcoal BBQ perfect for entertaining a few friends in the evenings.
The neighborhood is quiet, safe and secluded in a small beach community that claims an extremely friendly Garden Bar just a few blocks away. There are 2 other restaurants within a few minutes by foot. Within about 20 minutes by auto, you can access grocery stores, more restaurants, movie theaters and gift shops. Other activities at the beach or nearby include tropical horseback trail rides, golf, caving, rain forest hikes and more. We're happy to provide plenty of suggestions for recommend activities based on your vacation needs.
We hope you'll enjoy your time at Villa Coqui as much as our past guests. It's one of the most special places on earth, and it makes us extremely happy to share it with you.

My name is Colin Gowland. I was born in Canada and spent most of my life there, traveling for sports interests when I could. In 2002, I moved to the Outer Banks to pursue a career in kiteboarding. In the same year, I begun traveling to Puerto Rico in search of the finest wave and wind conditions in the Caribbean. Myself and other close friends and family scoured the island for the best conditions and vibes available - what we found time and time again, is that we really just wanted to be at Shacks. I enjoy sailing as well as most watersports; I also love music-- both playing and listening. I try to get back to this beach house whenever I can. Shacks is a magical spot: one of my absolute favorites, and I hope you enjoy your time there as much as I have over the years.
Colin Gowland purchased this villa in 2007
I recommend this house. It was comfortable and very close to the beach. If a couple of branches were trimmed from the palm trees, there would be a nice view of the beach directly from the living room. It was always fascinating at the beach because there is a lot of wave action in the winter. The Eclipse Restaurant on the beach is excellent! The only reason I gave this place 4 stars instead of 5 is because there was a lot of noise from the neighbors two of the nights. The houses are close together and the windows are open because the weather is perfect. Also, the grill had to be rigged to work and the power went out and there were no flashlights or lighters to get the stove to work without electricity.
Managing a property from afar and dealing with last minute bookings can create challenges. We booked at the last minute, something happened and the property manager was super helpful and responsive. The Owner made the entire situation right. About the property: Good location, near a bunch of good restaurants (TBC, Paprika, The Reef, etc.). The house is very close to the beach and good surf spots.
Prime location on Shacks Beach. Place is clean and comfortable. It would be perfect if it had at least 2 lamps.
1. The only lighting is overhead and it's tough to relax with that kind of bright lighting
2. Buy a new showerhead. The one that is there is a disaster. Water goes all over the place.
Other than that...two thumbs up.
Great spot , relaxing, locals are lovely - that is once you find the place - The address does not exist in GPS's , nor do the locals know the name of the villa. A sign on a tree pointing in the general direction, like some of the other villas would help. Villa itself was well set up with everything you need for a beach holiday.
This place was amazing and the owner and the caretaker were great! Very informative and quick response time for any of my questions! The location is just off the beach and it is a humble residence with no tv but it had awesome Internet-which supplied all of the tech entertainment we needed as a family with kids! Just steps from the house is the most amazing beach with great snorkeling and scuba diving alternatives. If you are looking to relax and enjoy the chill side of Puerto Rico this is definitely a cool spot! We will be back!
