A Trip of a Lifetime
"My husband & I, our 2 daughters, their fiance & boyfriend went to Puerto Rico to reaffirm our wedding vows for our 30th anniversary. We were met at the airport by my cousin from Chicago who was going to preform the ceremony, so there was 7 of us that stayed in the Beautiful Spacious beach house. Not once did we feel a lack of space or were we uncomfortable, especially since most of time was spent on the large terrace overlooking the ocean. It was Breathtaking!
We went on a lovely catamaran trip in Fajardo and spent 2 days going to Old San Juan's beautiful & interesting museums and art galleries...a photographer's delight. But at the end of the day we all looked forward to getting to La Hacienda (gourmet shop in Dorado) for a beautiful steak or local cuisine & a bottle of one of many wonderful Spanish wines to take back & prepare at the house. It really was hard not to take full advantage of the comfort & serenity of the sound of waves crashing on the rocks below while sitting on the terrace having a delicious dinner.
Diane is a wonderful host that really goes above and beyond. We all agreed that every expectation was exceeded tenfold. The ceremony was INCREDIBLE beyond words on the terrace with the ocean as a backdrop. With Diane's help and suggestions it was PERFECT. It was very hard to leave...we will be back!"

"The villa is such an amazing place to vacation at! We were fortunate enough to spend a week-long honeymoon this past May and could not have been happier with the accommodations. We visited PR in 2012 and spent the time sightseeing, hiking, etc. so this time, we wanted to just spend time relaxing on the beach and at the villa. Some of our most enjoyable evenings were simply spent on the patio, grilling out, and watching the beautiful sunsets. Each day we made it a point to take the short walk to the beach and spend a few hours sun bathing. We loved the private, intimate feel of the beach. It wasn't overcrowded, and it was very clean. While it was just the two of us, it was obvious that the beach was family friendly, as there were free kayaks and paddle boats being used by the guests. The beach was large enough that the kayaks and paddle boats did not bother those who wanted to take a swim. There was also a beach volleyball net set up for anyone who wanted to use it.
We tried a few of the restaurants that were listed in the guest information book. Madeline has done a great job finding places that are reputable, clean, and very enjoyable. Our two favorite restaurants were Salitre and Grappa. Salitre is located in Arecibo (a short drive from Dorado) and was a great experience. We were able to dine on the beach patio, and watched surfers in the nearby waves. Food and atmosphere were awesome! Grappa is located in Dorado and is definitely worth making a stop at. Don't let the outside of this place fool you-they have some of the best Italian fare we ever had!
The villa is so close to so many enjoyable destinations. Madeline makes sure that all of your needs and concerns are taken care of. We have stayed at the Villa twice and have had absolutely no issues with anything! The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you need to cook with. The place is always super clean. You can't go wrong with this villa!"

"My family and I stayed in Lourdes beautiful condo twice and we absolutely love it. Lourdes is so sweet and makes sure that everything is taken care of before our arrival. The condo is close to everything. We get to travel the island and visit family while ending our days in this wonderful condo that makes you feel like you are home. It even has washing machine and dryer so you can wash your clothes during your visit. My family and I look forward to renting from Lourdes very soon. Thank you Lourdes for allowing us to enjoy your condo."

"We just got back from our family vacation in PR. Words cannot express how much we enjoyed our stay at Villa La Paz. The property is beautiful and its surroundings breathtaking. The peace and tranquillity we experienced was second to none. Our teenage kids did not want to leave!!! Our family is originally from Puerto Rico (we now live in Florida) so we know well all the vacation spots around the island. We can honestly say that Lakeside Villas is one of the best places we have stayed at. The owners, Gretchen and Marcos, made sure all our needs were met. We are grateful they shared their piece of paradise with us.
Viviana and José Vila"
