Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Borinquen - The Blue House

Private Gated Home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Welcome to the 'Blue House,' a well appointed tropical-modern private home complete with tranquil ocean and surf views located in what Islands Magazine has called the 'Caribbeans new Riviera.' Just minutes to the famous Crashboat Beach, the Wilderness surf break, and other nearby attractions, this is not a congested vacation condo complex with shared yard and amenities, but a private gated and exclusive home for you and your guests only.

Relax on the porch as you watch waves crest and peel or enjoy the peaceful interior and offerings of this unique retreat. The private yard is filled with a variety of vibrant tropical plants including ginger, crab claws, plumeria, palms, and banana trees. The spacious yard is great for kids as well and includes a wooden play set.

The Blue House is owned and managed by Shayne and Shannon McIntyre, from the popular 'On Surfari' television series that aired worldwide on Fuel TV and National Geographic internationally. 'We chose the home and location because of it's rare view of where the Caribbean sea meets the Atlantic as well as being an ideal base to easily reach the best beaches on the island for swimming, diving, fishing, and surfing. 'We love to share the experience of visiting Puerto Rico and all it has to offer - and we take great care in making sure our guests have a pleasant and successful trip.' Contact us and let the Blue House be your home away from home in the Caribbean.

House in Aquadilla was great!

  • 5 of 5

View was fantastic, and house was central to where we needed to be. Loads of space. We were only 3, but plenty of room for 6. Would stay again.

Paradise Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely the perfect home away from home during our week in PR! The house was comfortable, clean and EXACTLY what you see...and then some! Our 5 year old little pirate could not have been happier chasing his dreams after our days at the beach. Close to all of our adventures, and family we were visiting! Can't thank Shayne & Shannon enough for sharing this slice of paradise. We will be back!

Beauty with the comfort of home

  • 5 of 5

Myself and three of my closest friends had the pleasure of staying here for eight days at the end of October into November. I enjoyed the close proximity to great surf, ability to shop at the local grocery stores, cook our own food, and enjoy the tranquility of Aguadilla. This was the first trip with my friends to Puerto Rico, and I plan on returning to the Blue House next time with my wife and two daughters.

Blue House- Excellent location in PR

  • 5 of 5

The Blue House is great for so many reasons- especially for surfers...

The location and house are beautiful, with a great ocean view- hammock pointed that way too!.

It is very near to many surf breaks- some of the best in Puerto Rico.

It was really nice to stay outside of Rincon but still be able to access those breaks on a day trip. Easy access to the most exposed stretches of coast- awesome.

We stayed in the house each night for 8 nights and it was great for cooking and watching some videos. Perfect to relax after a day at the beach!

We highly recommend this wonderful rental house (the infamous Blue House) to any and all looking for privacy, comfort, and modern amenities!

The easy access to the awesome beaches and surf were well appreciated from this location!

The comfort, privacy, views, and modern amenities we experienced at the house, along with the surroundings solidified future return visits when available!!!
