- Upon check in, you may turn on the a/c in the two bedrooms. These units are more efficient if you let them run throughout your stay rather than turning them on every night and turning them off in the morning. Please make sure, though, to turn the a/c units off right before you check out at the end of your stay.
- Do not leave ANY food outside of fridge (ants will find anything you leave out).
- Blue pick-up truck in garage is property of the owner and should NOT be used/handled by any guest under any circumstance.
- Trash day is every Wednesday. You do not need to take any trash out during your stay but if you wish to do so there is a trash can outside in the front of the house. Make sure trash is inside plastic bag before discarding into trash can.
- Always close garage door.
- Please do not throw any toilet paper inside the toilets to be flushed. Always use trash can. The water system in Puerto Rico is weak and clogging toilets is very easy.
- This is a residential gated community. Please respect the neighbors and observe the quiet hours after 10:00pm.
- The downstairs area facing the backyard has a half bathroom that guests may use, but please do not use the gym/weight lifting equipment in that area. It could be hazardous to operate this equipment and we recommend keeping unsupervised children away from this area.
- The rack inside the garage has equipment and items that are for the homeowner's personal use. We have some beach chairs and children's beach toys on that same rack that you may use, but please refrain from using anything else on that rack and keep unsupervised children away from it.

The house is very clean and comfortable. It is in a quiet gated community and the nearby town is nice. It had almost everything we needed. The hosts are really nice and we were grateful to stay there. I would have given it 5 stars except for the hot water issue. The ad says hot water throughout but the manual in the house says there is no hot water heater in the house and suggested taking cold showers which confused me. It looked like there were some kind of on demand apparatus on one of the showers but it was not plugged in, I did not see a plug in the bathroom and as we had no experience with such devices opted to forgo using the water out of an abundance of caution of causing any accidental damage. But i really really wanted a shower. I probably could have contacted the owner but it was late and I didn't want to disturb the hosts so we just went without. But that was the ONLY 1 issue. The home was really nice and we felt very safe. It was super quiet. I would recommend staying there. The driving directions and access instructions were super thorough. If they could put hot water instructions in the manual it would be perfect. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

This stay was absolutley amazing, it was my first time using airbnb,. The experience was better than I would have ever expected. Alisha from day one was amazing and always available. The house was so beautiful and comfortable. It was honeslty the best choice we have ever made. Gorgeous and peaceful neighborhood, everything clean, air conditioning, hot water, beautiful scenary and can hear the coqui every night. She had absolutley every little detail we needed. Always answered our text and attended our concerns. If I could give her more than 5 stars I would! We ended up leaving a peice of our heart their towards the end and considered it as a second home also. We will never forget this experience and will definitly be back next year! Thank you Alisha

We used Alisha's place to get settled in PR and honestly we couldn't have found a better place. Alisha is an amazing hostess, she answered all our questions and concerns about the island and gave us plenty of tips to get settled. The house is nestled between Barceloneta and Arecibo city right on PR 2. It is peaceful but still close to everything.

Traveling is one of my biggest passions! I love exploring/staying in new places and recently set the goal of visiting a new country ever year. So far my husband and I have been able to visit the Dominican Republic and Brazil for the 2016 Olympics! My heart, though, is in my beautiful island of Puerto Rico. Most of my family still lives there so we like to visit them at least once a year. We would probably get to travel internationally more often if we didn't visit PR so often, but as you will soon find out, the island has a way of enchanting your mind and soul... to me, it's where I'm the happiest... it's home.

Our beautiful Arecibo home was passed on from my father to me. I loved this house growing up and I am sure you will love it too.
