                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2009

                              About the owner: We have lived in the Washington, DC area since 1984 where we raised our son and still live. We always go to Puerto Rico to visit family, vacation and to spend time at the beach in Manati where my wife grew up. On the spring break of 2009 my wife went to visit her sister and met our son who was also visiting with some colleagues from work. The property across the street from her sister was for sale and she came back with the idea of purchasing it! On July 2009 the task was accomplished. Now we want our place and "our" beach to be "your place and your beach". Mi casa es su casa!

                              Why the Owner Chose Manati:
                              The property we purchased was part of a farm that was owned by my wife's grandfather, her parent's last house was in the neighborhood and her two sister live there too. And... there's Mar Chiquita Beach, the beach where she spent her growing years.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                              The location of the apartment offers the best setting for you, a two-minute walk to the beach, great ocean view and the benefits of the Trade Winds always blowing and assuring you winter temperatures in the low 80's F and low 90's F in the summer. We are conveniently located 35 miles west of San Juan's (SJU) Luis Munoz Marin International Airport away from the tourist crowds.
