The Pictures don't do this charming home justice.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this house. We travelled with our two kids and found it more than roomy enough for all of us. We spent a lot of time on the front porch, especially in the evenings when they kids were in bed. The local beach was great for a quick dip. Kyisha (the caretaker) greeted us with hugs upon arrival and when we happened to run into her in the area. She gave us a great list of things that our kids might like to do. She is a gem. Our favourite things to do nearby: !. Crashboat 2. Waterfalls at Gozolandia 3. Rincon Lighthouse to watch the surfers at Domes. I highly recommend this simple, lovely home.

Owner's Response: Dear Ceil and family: If you enjoyed your vacations and staying at my house, we were thrilled and honored to have the pleasure of hosting a family as sweet as yours. My housekeeper had nothing but good comments of you. She went in details on how clean you left the entire property and how well you took care of it. I share her wish of having the pleasure of hosting all of you very soon. Thanks again. If any other rental property owner sees this review. I guarantee you, you will love hosting them too. Don't hesitate to accept their request. Best wishes Oswaldo & Rosa Hernandez owners.

We enjoyed this clean, spacious, and well-equipped house just a few minutes walk from a mile-long beach between Aguada and Aguadilla. Good restaurants and more beaches are close, as well as the Borinquen Airport and shopping centers. We found it an ideal location as a base for day trips throughout the northwest of Puerto Rico to Isabela, Rincon, Mayaguez, and beyond. For us it was special to be in a "real neighborhood" rather than a tourist zone - it made the visit much more authentic and relaxing. Having secure parking, WiFi, outdoor shower facility, and air conditioners in the bedrooms gave us "at home" comforts while on the road in a tropical location. As frequent travelers who have stayed in many private facilities we'd rate this one as one of the best - and best value too.

Great Home for the Bucks!!

The home was perfect for my family; we felt really safe and we walked the beach daily. The a/c in the bedrooms was a real plus. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning in the future.

I want to thank you for giving me the honor of hosting your party, and at the same time for taking such a good care and leaving it so clean. On a one to ten scale, (10 being the best) you are definitely a 10. Thanks so much. Come back soon. Oswaldo & Rosa Hernandez, owners. PS. I apologize for taking so long to reply your Review, but for some inexplicable reason, I received it today.

Very good deal!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed having a home to come back to every day. I am definitely looking forward to coming back soon and staying here again. The house was very comfortable and had plenty of space for me and my family. The beach is walking distance and the bar/restaurant across the street serves the best pizza. Every bedroom has a wonderful air conditioner and they provide cable with most movie channels. The owner and his family were polite and friendly.

NO disappointments here !!!

  • 5 of 5

Several reasons Porta del Mar in the Espinal community was the right choice for us.

First we wanted to experience living "in" a Puerto Rican neighborhood rather than an apartment/hotel room. The area felt secure and provided good access for travel north or south along the west coast. Keisha did an excellent job preparing the house with some nice extra touches - a tourist info folder and live flowers everywhere. The orchids at the front door were amazing. How do they grow like that? The bottle of wine from Rosa was nice. We were fortunate to have Wally (the owner) on the island during our stay. He and his brother Johny became good friends rather than just a landlord. We really enjoyed Puerto Rican food and LaCasa del Dorado is "the place" to eat in the neighborhood. Just a couple blocks away, they serve great seafood in the perfect setting on the beach. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it for anyone.

Owner's Response: It was truly an honor having you and your brothers as our guests in my humble house. I only wish we could have more guests as pleasant, friendly, responsible and caring as you were. Thanks for your business and more importantly your friendship. Hope to serve you again soon.

If you visit Puerto Rico you simply have to try and spend at least some time in the city of Aguada. Reported to be the place where Christopher Columbus landed when he discovered this great island, this city is filled with fascinating attractions. One of Aguada’s more notable attractions is the Ermita Espinal Ruins. The history behind this small attraction is quite interesting and really gives you an idea of the trials and tribulations that early settlers must have faced.

According to the history books, the Ermita Espinal Ruins in Puerto Rico were built in 1525 at the request of Nuestra Señora de la Inmaculada Concepción. The building was originally a sort of church and the structure was created with the aim of converting the local Taíno Indian’s to Christianity. Unfortunately the venture did not last since, just four years later, Caribe Indians took it upon themselves to not only destroy the chapel, but also the kill many of the Franciscan priests serving there. Thus many people lost their lives during the destruction of this religious edifice.

Today visitors may find it strange to see a church standing on the site where they should see these ruins. Considering that they are visiting to see the ruins, their confusion is warranted. However, if you venture inside the church, you will find that the alter inside the church is built around the original ruins. This noteworthy tribute to the older structure makes for interesting décor and allows you to see the ruins without being bothered by the weather.

It is interesting to note that it is this chapel which serves as proof that Aguada is the second oldest European-style settlement on the island. The landing of Christopher Columbus is celebrated in Aguada each year on the 19th of November. If you wish to visit this interesting religious attraction, you will find it by taking route 442 to Barrio Espinal. The ruins are open from Monday to Friday between 8:00 and 17:00 with a short lunch break between 12:00 and 13:00. You can check with your tour guide if you need more information.
