What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with this apartment for its location and outdoor living areas. The balcony where I have my morning coffee. The beach across the street is a big plus; my son loves the beach and we go and build castles and take long walks along the water. We walk to restuarants and if they are busy we just order and they call us when ready and we pick it up. All the comforts of home and maybe a little more in a paradise setting you will learn to love and enjoy also!

We have compiled a book of all the activities/attractions available to you; and made them available to you in rental unit and a few recipes; activities/attractions available on our website in PDF form.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank You Al and Nelida, as well as Myrna who went out of her way to make sure we arrived and settled in comfortably. Renting a home is so much better than staying in hotels and is much more economical. The apartment was clean and comfortable, except for the patio loveseat. Light outlet on roof needs repaired and a shelf and hook would be nice in the master bathroom. These are trivial things and would not deter me from renting there again.

Thank You!

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Villas de Costa Mar very much. The apartment was immaculate and very well furnished. The beds were comfortable and the view was amazing. The apartment is located right across from a very nice beach that is perfect for walking, jogging and taking your family for a picinic. There are wonderful restaurants within walking distance as well. I highly recommend this unit to anyone that is looking for the perfect vacation getaway and cannot wait to go back next year!!

It was our first trip to Puerto Rico for the World's Best 10k. Villas De Costa Mar provided an at home environment, giving us the option of cooking in, or dining out. The beach and nearby Gulf Course provided an excellent trail for my daily runs. The manager was friendly and extremely helpful with driving instructions. Rooms were comfortable and clean. This quiet gated property provided a sense of security and privacy.Balcony overlooked beach with plenty of food and shopping options nearby. Thank You Al and Nelida

We completed our 2nd stay at Villas de Costa Mar over the Christmas holiday and were very pleased. Located in a pleasant residential community, it's very cozy and makes us feel right at home.

The property is literally across the street from the beach, a major selling point for us. There are several restaurants within a few blocks, as well as a snack shop with full bar on the beach. We shopped at the local grocery store and made our own meals in the fully-equipped kitchen. The owners are accomodating and keep the unit well-maintained.

We would stay at this property again and again.

To Al & Nelida Rios

We had a very pleasant stay in Dorado; thanks in part to the comfortable accommodations at Villas de Costa Mar. The Unit

was a welcomed change from the confined space of a standard and all too often, overpriced hotel room. Your patio was our favorite spot for our morning coffee & the rooftop terrace was the perfect place to take in those spectacular sunsets. Ah...& then there is Dorado Beach, paces away...and it neighbor, Cerro Gordo minutes by car both beautiful beaches. We enjoyed the restaurants, the live music on the weekend & the late night quiet...when the only sound was that of the surf. It doesn't get much better than this.

I do think that the Master Bedroom could use a small dresser; both of us were partially living out of our suitcases. Another towel rack or hook in the bathroom would be a practical plus.

Our experience on this trip has convinced us that renting is the way to go; and we have you to thank for that.

Best Regards,

Frank Costas
