Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

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.

We know you’ll be delighted with the accommodations and location, and we look forward to making your stay in at Shacks Beach exceptional.

About Colin Gowland

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

over all is very nice and pleasurable

  • 4 of 5

We all love the spot of the house and is confortable. The beds, a/c, coffee maker, refrigerator, are in a very good conditions. Don't forget bring your own towel; beach and bath!!! You can walk in the night to the best restaurant Eclipse and have the best moment. Maybe the only thing to be better is to have more careful cleaning the floor..... I recommended!!

Simple, clean, perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Except for the fact that the kitchen really needs a few key items (mixing bowls, cheese grater and knife sharpener would be great) and that we actually bought new sheets and a mattress pad for the master, Villa Coqui was/is awesome. Super clean, great location...it's really a wonderful place to stay.

Literally stumbling distance to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Colin was super accommodating and his manager, Scott, was too. We enjoyed being so close to the beach and to all the great things Isabella & Aquadilla have to offer.

Lovely

I had a lovely weekend in Isabela at Villa Coqui. The home was literally steps from the beach, clean, safe and equipped with what we needed.

Pretty much what you would expect for the price.

  • 4 of 5

It was very convenient to the beach. Cons: the worst part was the house next door had a one night tenant that rolled in late on a Friday and partied until 5am, which made it tough to get a good night sleep for an early morning scuba dive. Also, the shower drained VERY slow and the double bed had a plastic cover under the sheet, so it didn't breath which made for a sweaty night sleep eventhough the AC worked great. Didn't know about the washer/dryer in a closet out back until the day we were leaving. It was adequate for 4 guys but our wives wouldn't have liked it.
