Cliffside apartment with an ocean view in a quiet, safe, rural area on Isabela's Northwest coast. We're surrounded by rambling tropical gardens - great for birdwatching and star watching! There's a tree-house view of Jobos Beach, a sandy beach that's great for both experienced or beginner surfers (on the sandbar).
Fully equipped kitchenette including refrigerator, microwave oven, gas stove, coffeemaker, blender, and outdoor grill.
Cable TV, DVD/CD, wireless internet, ceiling fan, washing machine, indoor shower with hot water, and outdoor shower.
Bunk bed (full on bottom, twin on top) with linens provided, and inflatable bed available for a third person.
Five minutes by car from Jobos and Shack's Beaches for surfing, swimming, kite/wind surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, shell-collecting, horseback riding, and dining. The beach is close enough to walk to, but a rental car is highly recommended, since there's no public transportation.
Fifteen minutes from BQN airport, rental cars, public golf and tennis facilities, supermarkets, skateboard park, ice skating rink, and Surfer's and Wilderness beaches for surfing, hiking, and mountain-biking.
$45/night or $275 a week. $10/night extra for a third person. Special rates for longer stays. Minimum advance reservation is for three nights.
Surfboards available from 6'4" to 9'0" as well as other toys like bikes, and snorkel gear. A portable A/C unit can be provided.
Come and go as you please, but make sure the windows aren't wide open if it rains while you're gone. Also, please don't leave the fans running while you're gone, because they will not make the place any cooler when you get back (they work directly on your skin). Enjoy yourself!
I'm a marine biologist, educator, environmentalist, and surfer. Lately I've become an ISA certified surf instructor, and my business partner and I also take people on SUP and snorkeling tours. I love plants and animals, and getting to know people too! Health and nutrition are important to us, and we grow some of our own food. We have lots of fruit trees and medicinal plants, and a yard that looks like a forest. My husband is a car guy, and likes to restore Porsches. We have two dogs and a cat.
