ReviewsWrite a review
My husband and I celebrated my 60th birthday here and it was fabulous. Since our arrival Carmen (the owner) was very accommodating and made us feel right at home and even helped us with directions for all the activities we had planned. The place was immaculate, spacious and had everything we needed. We just walked outside and there was the Ocean with its spectacular sunsets every night. You have to put Puerto Rico in your "Bucket List" of places to visit. We had so much fun! We went snorkling, kayaking, to the Cuevas of Camuy and it was only an hour from San Juan. Right around the corner from the house there is a sea food restaurant "El Pescador" with delicious fresh fish items in their menu. The location could not have been any better. I can't wait for my next birthday since we are planning to celebrate it there again but this time we want to take our grand kids!

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: My husband and I are residents of San Juan, PR. We are both professionals who were dedicated to work, business and raising our two boys; now college graduates working on the mainland. Our empty nest allows us to develop our hobbies and entertainment preferences. I am an artisan doing mosaics with shells and sea glass as well as collecting them. My husband is a consultant in urban development and construction and most recently dedicating his time to his lifetime hobby, the sea and boating; teaching about both. I divide my tjme between our two homes Even though we purchased this property as a second home over 10 years ago, we demolished the old house and designed and constructed in 2008 a green, eco-friendly Villa where we plan to retire.
Why the Owner Chose Vega Baja:
Over twenty years ago as we were searching for a vacation home near the beach we found this area known as Cibuco. Close to our home in San Juan, about 40 to 45 minutes, on a dead end road, the tranquility of the area, the views of the ocean and the mountains, the proximity of the Puerto Nuevo Beach, the very friendly and few (less than 6) neighbors were all assets.. There is a nearby boat ramp to launch my boat and go deep sea fishing and scuba diving. A river close enough to go kayaking. Trails by the ocean front, wetlands and swamps to go hiking and learn about our eco systems and so many other attributes so close to the Metro Area.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
In addition of the reasons already mentioned for buying this property we also enjoy the whole ambiance of the place, its privacy and the unpolluted environment good for our health. On a full moon night you can sea the horizon at sea while on a moonless night you have all the stars to enjoy.
