Villa Candela is located in the northwest coast of Puerto Rico overlooking the ocean. It is a great option for vacationing, relaxing and getting away from your daily routine.
A bungalow studio built of wood on a cliff close to the town of Isabela. The villa is one of three on the premises of Villa Marullo. The house has all the amenities needed including wired internet, TV (for DVD only) and a newly built Bar-B-Q. It can be rent alone, or it can be rented with Villa Mar Afuera and/or Villa Marullo. Special prices are available. Please note that renting a car is highly advisable (and really necessary) in order to get to the beach and to explore the island.
In the vicinity there are restaurants and some of the world most renown beaches for surfing. The cottage has two futons (full size), complete bathroom and equipped kitchen including microwave. Villa Pesquera is just minutes away where you can enjoy some typical puertorrican snacks like "alcapurrias" or "pastelillos de langosta" (seafood turnovers).
You can get to Villa Candela either through Rafael Hernandez Airport (Aguadilla 15 minutes) or through the Muñoz Marin International Airport. In both you can easily rent a car. Directions will be provided.
Isabela has a lot to offer: you can horseback ride along the beach, surf, snorkeling, sightseeing, sky ride along the coast, rent a bicycle, or just lay in the beach getting a tan or read a book under a palm tree.
NOTE: The house is not at the beach, nor is walking distance. It is a 5 minute drive to the nearest beach.
You can also go to underground caves in Camuy, to the Zoo in Mayaguez, the largest radio telescope in the world (Arecibo) , or just sightseeing the different towns around Isabela.

La cabaña tiene una ubicación espectacular, muy tranquilo y fresco todo el tiempo. Es muy cerca del pueblo y fácil para llegar a la playa. Es muy sencilla y pintoresca pero con lo esencial para pasarlo muy bien. El sitio está bien cuidado.
We stayed for 4 days and wished we could have been there longer. All 3 residences on the property are well maintained and have a great ocean view. The area is not a typical tourist haunt. Despite what some reviews say, the beach is within walking distance if your fitness is decent...approx 15/20 minute walk, perhaps 1.5 miles. The best food we have ever had is right down the street at CLMDO. We would come back without a doubt. Stay here for small town, relaxed vibe, awesome beaches, and if you like being active. Do not stay here if you need to be entertained with multitudes of tourist attractions like in bigger cities in PR.
Ahh Isabela is so lovely and Loly's place is perfect. It's the perfect size for a couple or small group of friends. Lovely views, close to some of the most beautiful beaches and some great food (I HIGHLY recommend CLMDO nearby)... Loly was very thorough with check in instructions which made everything very easy. There was also lots of toiletries and supplies for guests (sunscreen, lotion, milk, coffee), which is SO generous!!! I highly recommend this little slice of paradise :) one of my best airbnb experiences to date (and I've had a lot)
Villa Candela is excellent for a relaxing stay with nature and spectacular views . The villa is clean and comfortable. Loly responds to all questions.
Loly was extremely helpful from the beginning to the end. Small villa was perfect to host 2 guest. Amazing view of the beach and ocean. Loly also left refreshments; water, juice and carrots which I thought was pretty cool. Everything in the small cottage was for our use including a tv linked to a DVD (I recommend bringing your own DVDs) Clean linens and fresh bath & beach towels are also provided. Loly was great with communicating and responding to any concerns and questions promptly. This was my first airbnb experience and I must say it was a pleasant one. I highly recommend Loly's villa to a couple or a couple of friends who would enjoy the local town of isabela; small restaurants/bakery/cafe and an amazing local beach. Thank you Loly, hope to be back soon!!!!
Villa Candella was a wonderful experience! We loved being on a bluff and looking out at the water. The small town nearby felt like a real Puerto Rican town rather than a tourist trap. We slept with the windows and doors open and I loved it but my sister was too hot and the bugs bit her. The cabin itself was very charming with lots of helpful supplies like bug spray, suntan lotion, DVDs, etc. I would love to stay there again, thanks Loly!
The house was as described, even better! Loly was great with communication. The directions she sent us ahead of time were accurate. We had no trouble finding the place. It was immaculately clean and comfortable. We found everything we needed. The view was magnificent too. We also walked into Isabela in the mornings and enjoyed that as well. A great place to stay and explore areas of the northern coast. Thank you!
