"This was our first VRBO experience and the bar has been set very high.
The Condo: The Condo was gorgeous. The photos listed on the site are completely true. The view from the balcony and one of the bedrooms overlook the pool and the beach. The condo is stocked with everything you can imagine that you'd need for a beach vacation, including incidentals like aloe in the fridge and paddles and a ball to play on the beach or in the pool. The condo lends itself to an easy vacation, with free parking right under the elevator to the door of the condo. Rio Grande is central to all the activities, including San Juan, El Yunke, Fajardo, Culebra and others.
The Owner: There are so many places to choose when coming to PR. We chose this one because of the attentiveness of the owner. While making our decisions, he answered questions about the area, rental cars, even flights. Upon arrival, he called to ensure that we arrived safely and that we knew how to get to the condo and when we reached the condo, the fridge, freezer and pantry were stocked (we have an allergy and he was aware and worked with that, too). He called during the vacation to ensure that we were having fun and to make sure that we don't need anything. Very attentive and kind owners. We never met him, but maybe we will on our next visit.
Activities: We are an active family and took advantage of activities. We went to Old San Juan (try to eat near the fort and not the cruises if you want more "authentic" food). We lucked out as it was President's Day weekend and everything was free. We climbed El Yunke which was fun, but didn't see any animals, just trees and waterfalls. Very beautiful, but after a while, the same ol'. Ziplining at Toro Verde was incredible. Not close as it's in the middle of the country, but well worth it. Our tour guide, Jerry, was amazing and explained how the country people lived. Loved it. Bio Bay kayaking and snorkeling with the sea turtles at Culebra were amazing, too. The weather was ok (rained every day, but not too much), but when it's in the 80s, one cannot complain.
Recommendation: We would definitely come back. The condo was amazing. The owner was incredible and the people of PR were so nice. Great trip. Thank you!"
