    My husband and I loved our week-long stay at the beachfront cottage. If you are looking for a place where the only sound you will hear is the crash of the waves, this place is for you. We only left our little hideway to go the grocery store or to go out to eat. We kept asking ourselves why should we leave, when everthing we wanted was right here.

    We were greeted by the housekeeper when we arrived. The place was spotless and well-maintained. She was prompt and patient with us when we arrived later than planned. (Don’t rent from Hertz at the aiport if you are looking for speedy service.) However, make sure you do get a car, because nothing is within walking distance. And a note about driving, it is not for the faint of heart. The roads around the cottage are narrow and the other drivers are not what I would call considerate.

    The owner provided us with good information about area restaurants and supermarkets. I would add that there are more restaurants and a mall a little further away.
    You will never want to leave
    One thing that may have improved our stay was if she provided a gas or charcoal grill. We would have loved to cook out. The kitchen does have griddle, but who wants to cook in the kitchen when it is so beautiful outdoors.

    I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking a little piece of paradise away from the usual tourist crowds. You will be far away from most of the tourist haunts. A trip to the rain forest or to old San Juan will take most of your day. If you don’t want to fight traffic or the crowds, stay on your porch here and enjoy the sound of the waves. If you must get up, take a walk on the beach where the only footprints will be yours.

    Charming, Relaxing Getaway
    This clean, charming bungalow is right on the beach. It’s a wonderful getaway for a couple or small family. My wife and I sat on the wide porch all day reading, except when we were not on the beach frollicking in the warm water. Resturants and shops are nearby and easy to get to. We had the beach almost totally to ourselves. The bedroom and living room have double-wide doors that open to the porch and view of the beach, they are just wonderful. We are recommending this place to friends.

    Paradise, indeed
    Just returned from my stay at Villa Rosa – Arecibo for 4 nights and it was absolutely wonderful. Pictures are beautiful but do not do it justice – even better in person! Large balcony to enjoy the sunrise and sunset, only steps to the beach and the house has everything you could possibly need – was told I only needed to bring beach towels – and this was the truth. Did not want to leave and can’t wait to go back!

    In love with this place
    I stayed there for a week and felt in love with the place. The house is warm, comfortable and the view is amazing. I enjoyed the luxury of looking over the beach and rocks from the house when I wanted to relax to being in the water in less than a minute when I wanted to swim. The location is quiet, relaxing, and safe. I found it convenient to have a kitchen and a wine chiller inside it. If you’re looking to get away with a significant other or just relax and party with friend, this is the place to be.

    Breathtaking!
    We travelled from Colorado for my cousins wedding at Villa Rosa and may I say this is the most beautiful place I’ve seen in Puerto Rico and I lived there for 10 years. The view was spectacular and breathtaking, the beach and islet are undescribable and the property well, you have to see for yourself.

    The villa is clean and very well kept and also fully furnished.

    This is definitely a piece of paradise and I will definitely come back with my family!

    Wish could stay forever
    My experience in Villa Rosa was inspiring, it is the most relaxing vacation experience ever. The views, the peace, the strolls along the beach….. The house and environment was perfect, can wait to stay again. It’s a true beach house. Just make sure to buy all your groceries, because the 15-20 minute drive to the supermarket feels forever, since you don’t feel like leaving once there. Salitre restaurant is very good and Tres Palmas Restaurant on the beach very cute as well. At the time of our stay the Hot tub and fence were under construction at the time, hopefully we will enjoy that hot tub next time we stay.

    Perfect spot
    I think this is the most beautiful place that Puerto Rico has to offer. There is a hammock that overlooks the beach. The best part is having an enormous private beach. If you like to surf there is an inlet for that. If you are not into extreme sports, there is a calm beach right outside your door. There are even areas where you can go fishing or lobster diving. There is plenty of shade around the grassed parts of the property. I would love to honeymoon here.
