About Matt Bass

We are Americans. My wife is from Aguadilla and this is our own vacation home . We have been going there for the past 20 years and love it. I have seen many tropical places in the world and Aguadilla still sits on top of my list. Beautiful beaches and lovely scenery. I am a company executive and my wife is a Special Education teacher. We are renting our house and sharing it with you.

Matt Bass purchased this house in 2000

Why Matt Bass chose Puerto Rico

Absolutely one of the most beautiful and comfortable places on the planet. Our children have always loved it there. My wife grew up in Aguadilla and has many family and friends. The house is an absolute gem! It sits on top of a long cliff above sea level. We have been vacationing in Aguadilla/Puerto Rico since 1987 every year! We were looking for a perfect, private, beautiful vacation home to purchase. We saw several. In the year 2000, it took me 2 minutes to see this house and place the deposit on the spot! The view is breathtaking and jaw dropping. It simply doesn't fit your eyes. It is so grand and panoramic that is beyond belief. It is a special place that you will always cherish and remember all the moments you spend there. In February and March whales swim and play in the waters visible from the gazebo!! Lovely and exciting. On 4th of July, the coast guard base celebrates with large fireworks, very close to the house and nicely visible from the gazebo.

What makes this house unique

This house is gated with automatic gate and is exclusive and private. The swimming pool is private and faces the ocean. It feels like home for any one. All the amenities are there. It is perfect for family or friends get away. It is so nice, that you might forget to visit the rest of Puerto Rico!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Matt. The house was amazing and I cant say anything bad about it. The house and pool were so nice I could hardly get my family to leave and explore.

Great Experience - Wonderful Weather!

  • 5 of 5

WE actually stayed in 2 properties of Matt's.

Pros:

Matt was very personable and helpful prior to the trip. He has a woman working for him, Diane, who was super responsive and helpful to the point that she took my wife to the local airport in the wee hours of the morning. She always responded to texts and usually answered the phone when called.

View from both houses was magnificent, The pools were kept clean as well as the grounds.

4 bedroom house was nicely appointed and the flow was great from the kitchen through the living areas, etc.

The Gazebo house had a bit more of a rustic, homey feel and was well suited for three people while the other house was better for a larger group.

Cons:

The smaller house had issues with water pressure and hot water. The larger house had issues with its stove.

Perfect introduction to Puerto Rico

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 stayed here on our first visit to Puerto Rico and it was the best introduction we could possibly have hoped for. Matt was very responsive in setting us up, and Diana was great with check-in, check-out and any needs during the week. The house is really great and is probably better in person than in photos. It is not lavishly decorated, but really comfortable and we never felt crowded. The really expansive yard, pool, gazebo and views really make this place utterly outstanding. It was difficult for us to get started on our day trips until about noon each day because the setting was so great that we just hung out at the house. We really enjoyed the local scene at Crashboat Beach on a crowded Sunday afternoon, and also enjoyed Jobos beach in Isabella (look for the Postillos stand on 4466 on the way), both very close. Rincon was also great for surf lessons (Puntas Surf School). It was easy to travel on our longer day trips to La Playeula (wow!) and Batey Zipline Adventure, both well worth it. We really enjoyed being off the beaten path of everything, yet having our own slice of paradise. It was a great balance of local flavor mixed with tourist oriented activities. There is really so much to do that we missed Wilderness and Shacks Beach, horseback riding, waterfalls, among many other things. Don't miss the beach down below the house, it is a hidden gem for early or late walks. This is a great place, complete with iguanas that hang out in the trees below that you can check on every day. We are already looking into our next trip!

Lovely and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 19 stayed here and at the adjacent house (which was more beautiful). We had a great time. Both houses were lovely and comfortable, and well appointed. Sarah, the manager, was responsive and helpful. Couldn't have asked for a better vacation!

Family Fun

  • 4 of 5

Great time for family of five (kids ages 8-13). It was our second visit so we knew the good and the bad of the area. The area and rental requires a rental car. For the house- Pool is great. View is outstanding. Good location for those who are ok to be off the beaten path. Rental was very easy and house is nice. There is lots of bedroom space. House could use a bit more updating in master bath and kitchen and we were not comfortable using the gazebo. But no complaints as we we loved coming home from the beach and jumping in the pool watching the sunset.

Favorite beaches are Jobos (will be crowded on weekends), sandy beach and domes. Favorite restaurants are Tuulum (mexican) and Eclipse. We loved horseback riding with villas tropical. very easy flying into aguadilla. We will be back.

Gazebo house

  • 4 of 5

Our vacation at this beautiful house was awesome! The yard and pool area are absolutely fabulous and the view is breathtaking. We spent a lot of time swimming (thank you for the float, noodles and raft) and enjoying the jacuzzi but also took in the local sights including the lighthouse at Rincon, and Jobos and Crash Boat beaches as well as the old Ponderosa light house. The iguanas came and went and were fun to watch. The grocery store is very close, as is the surf shop where we rented our masks, snorkels, fins and boogie boards. We ate out most nights but did cook for breakfast. While not a full set of pots and pans, we got by cooking eggs and pancakes. There were 2 nights in which we had trouble with the jacuzzi. It turned on in the middle of the night, and we couldn't get it turned off. It eventually cycled through and shut off on its own. Because it was the middle of the night we did not call our property contact. The main shower faucet leaked terribly which we told our contact right away, who called a plumber. It wasn't fixed when we left Saturday. The other amenities were wonderful including the generous supply of beach towels. There were some belongings left from previous guests (articles of clothing). Since this was our first VRBO rental I wasn't sure if this was typical. We left them untouched. The location of this property is ideal and the neighbors as well as the pool service representative were very friendly. We all had a fabulous time, and are thankful that we had the opportunity to share this beautiful property! Thank you.

To get away from it all....

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation at this lovely retreat could not have been any more stress-free and enjoyable. The beautiful yard, the pool, and the awesome view of the ocean were so mesmerizing that it was difficult to pull ourselves away to explore the rest of the island. Enjoy the island we did, though, with horseback riding on the beach (Tropical Trailrides), stand up paddleboarding on a peaceful green river (Aquatica), ziplining (Toro Verde), and kayaking in the La Parguera bio bay at night (Excursiones Ecoboriken). When we returned to the house each night, we enjoyed cooking in the well-equipped kitchen, grilling in the gazebo, and dining under the stars. We picked up fresh fish at Crashboat Beach and made daily runs to the grocery store located conveniently around the corner. Nicky warmly welcomed us with a tour of the house and grounds, and was most helpful any time we had a question or concern. Truly, I cannot remember a more peaceful, enjoyable vacation! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us, Matt!
