That was awesome!!! Kathy I great host!!! And Kathy knows everybody in jobos... And the apartment is perfect!!!!
The studio is very functional and has everything you need to cook. the washing machine was a big plus for us after 3 weeks of traveling and was very appreciated. It is also a easy drive to one of the nicest beach in Puerto Rico. The studio is surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden with a lot of flowers and birds. It is also the home of a lot of insects and I saw in the apartment one of the biggest spider of my life (insect haters be advised). Otherwise, it is a great place to stay and Kathy and Terry were very friendly guests.
Kathy was very kind and welcoming! Her space was perfect for what we needed or 2 nights for a couple in the northwest corner of the island. The kitchen is well stocked and you can sit outside and night and see the stars on the porch. You will need a car to get to beaches, however since the house is located on a hill up a road with no shoulder/sidewalks. Very affordable option for a couple wishing to see this part of the island.
The experience in Kathy's place was very positive. The apartment is cozy and well-equipped, it is very close to a beautiful brach, and the interaction was Kathy was perfectly correct. My only suggestion for her is to buy a new fan since the one in the apartment is so loud you cannot use it at night, and I think it is pretty necessary.
Kathy and Terry were great hosts. Both were very helpful and willing to share their vast local knowledge of the area. The apartment was a solid budget-friendly spot with plenty of room for 2 people. Kathy also rented us surfboards and a rack for the duration of the stay which was incredibly convenient.
Kathy and Terry were lovely hosts. We flew into San Juan and then rented a car there and drove to Isabela. It was beautiful drive! Terry was very helpful the first day we got there. He told us about the "hot spots" for surfing, restaurants with great food, and places to check out. The apartment was small but it had everything you needed. Kathy was kind enough to rent out her board to us. Some of the point breaks were huge, while others were on the smaller side. We drove along the NW coast and we checked out 6 or 7 different beaches. I highly suggest you visit the Guajataco Forrest and the Gozalandia water fall! It was breathtaking. Kathy and Terry were great hosts and we hope to come back in the near future!
We loved this place! We wanted to get out of San Juan for a few days to see the countryside, and Isabela was the perfect location. Beautiful beaches, interesting neighborhoods and decent grocery stores nearby. After being around so many people for several days in the city/buses/planes/etc, it was great to have a quiet space all to ourselves. Kathy was helpful in guiding us to the place, showing us around, and then leaving us in peace and quiet for three days. We had a private bathroom, access to laundry and a little porch to enjoy our coffee every morning. Lush tropical plants and the sound of waves at night provided a relaxing tropical experience. We were able to walk to the beach, but keep in mind it's a big hill on the way home, and the road isn't exactly safe for everyone. As to be expected with the location, there were bugs aplenty, so keep vigilance on closing doors and windows. Even though this is the perfect place to get away from the rest of the world, I am a graduate student and had to check email frequently, and found the spotty internet a bit frustrating at times. Minor flaw. Overall, this was a terrific deal, and we would definitely come back!
Kathy was a great host. Showed me all of the good spots to surf and how to surf the different areas. Some real good local knowledge of the area. She rented me a board and hooked me up with a surf rack, which I didn't have to transport the boards. Very friendly overall and the room was just as described. Met all of my needs and was good value for the price. Would definitely recommend staying with Kathy whether you are there to surf or just experience Puerto Rico.
Kathy was a great host and her studio apartment was a perfect budget-friendly choice in a convenient location. She even was able to rent me a surfboard.
Kathy was a great host. She providd us with much information on places to go. The room was spaceous and contained many nessecities from previous guest. The central location was perfect for surfers to get to all beaches. Besides the dead bird on our door step and a dead iguana in the front lawn, we had a great experience and would stay again.
Kathy & Terry are great hosts. I sent many travelers (due to my website or surf shop) to their home and always heard positive feedback from their stays. Kathy and Terry know the area and are always willing in sharing their local knowledge.
