The Best Place to Relax
gold stargold stargold stargold stargold star
My fiance and I had the most wonderful time at Casa Borinquen. We arrived there in May of 2012 and we Loved It! The villa itself is just like a "home away from home". The size of the villa is perfect, the rooms are great - Perfect size for a family getaway. Jose will make sure that your stay is one that you will never forget! From the time we arrived to Aguadilla, to the time left, he made sure we were accommodated in every way. I've just booked our trip back to Casa Borinquen and we're totally excited to return this Spring! - Thank You Jose for making our Engagement/Vacation an experience we will never forget!

Casa borinquen was our home away from home on our seven night stay in Puerto Rico. The house is modern and very comfortable. The house is in a great location close to everything from beaches and attractions to restaurants. The owner Jose and the manager myrna were very helpful from before we stepped foot on the property right up to our last day. We will definitely be looking to stay here again on our next vacation to Puerto Rico.

Home Away From Home
gold stargold stargold stargold stargold star
My husband, son and daughter (ages 23) and I really enjoyed our 4 day stay at Jose's rental home. We started our trip on the east side of Puerto Rico and wanted to explore the west side of the island as well. Jose was very helpful to work with because he was prompt, attentive and thoughtful with our trip planning. We were pleasantly surprised as to how comfortable and safe the home was. It is tastefully decorated and the beds are comfortable. The showers had enough hot water, but the water pressure could be better. The pool was nice to have, but we didn't have much time to go in since we were at Crash Boat Beach almost every day. There's a lot to do in the area or you can just relax and enjoy the warm, balmy weather poolside. One of our favorite places to eat was at Eric's BBQ.

A PLACE TO RELAX AND FORGET!
gold stargold stargold stargold stargold star
A great house to stay in for your Puerto Rico vacation! The outdoor pool was great when ending your tour day; along with a BBQ for dinner. A quiet, safe place to stay with cordial neighbors near by. This house is close to everything, casino, beaches - a few minutes drive, restaurants and shops. Loved my evenings on the balcony with my hubby and a cool breeze!! Thank you Jose for always answering the phone and assisting me with questions and places to go to; and for finding me someone to drive us around on our adventures around the Island. EXCELLENT! Thank you Myrna for your help and warm welcome.

Nice Place
gold stargold stargold stargold stargold star
I have never rented a house before and I was 100 percent happy with everything. House was in perfect condition with every possible thing that we could have asked for (ironing board, microwave, stocked cabinets of spices and things so if you cook you don\'t have to go out and buy salt, pepper etc). The only thing that was disapointing was that the pool was veryyyy small. And if you leave food out even for 15 minutes ants will get into it but I think that would be anywhere in Puerto Rico. But overall I would definetely go back. The house was spotless.
