Wonderful beachfront property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property over Christmas 2009. The location is ~45 minute drive from San Juan airport, away from Old city but very close to El Yunque and Luquillo (with beach and kiosks), also not far from Farjardo where one of the biobays and ferry service to Vieques Islands are. The owner Cristian waited for our arrival at the property and showed us around the rooms and various controls (for AC, TV, retractable awning, etc.). The unit is clean and tastefully decorated, with more linens than we could ever use during the entire stay, and the kitchen is equipped with plenty of pots, pans, and utensils. There are many nice touches, including detailed guidelines written by Cristian (containing local grocery, pharmacy, restaurant information and emergency phone number and hospital), many useful booklets about local attractions, toys for young children, fresh flowers, and a huge tropical fruit basket. The unit opens to a large grass section which extends to the beach. The beach is nice and has very few people (no lifeguard) and one could walk to the beach of adjacent Westin Rio Mar resort.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this place. While we booked for 6 days, our stay took another unexpected twist after 4 days, when a water main pipe outside the building ruptured, which led to a decreased water pressure in the unit. Since it was over the holiday period, repair actions were slow. The owner closely monitored the situation and called the condo association and local water company while we were out visiting places. Seeing the issue would take a while to resolve, Cristian graciously offered to place us in the nearby Westin resort and reimbursed the cost including parking and taxes. So we spent the last two days at the resort, which has nice amenities such as pools and restaurants. In short, we felt we had the best of two different types of vacation lodgings, though I do prefer the home feeling of Cristian's condo and the ability to cook a home meal and wash dirty laundry.

Overall, we can't say enough good things about this property and more importantly the owner. I'd lvoe to recommend this place to anyone.

Two side notes, the AC is a bit loud so one would rather sleep with the ceiling fan on. And the second bedroom is quite a bit smaller than the main one, which would make sharing by two families tricky.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The property description was very accurate, just steps away from the beach. The property was clean and well-maintained, just a few details already discussed with owner. Excellent customer service.

Definitely recommend this property to my friends and relatives. Be back soon!!

A fine balance of activity and rest

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Puerto Rico. The weather was fabulous, and we managed a great balance of relaxation and seeing the sights. Our teenage daughters loved how close we were to the beach. The beach also provided a long stretch for all the walking or running you could want. We were close to the Rain Forest and spent a day venturing into a different ecosystem. We also spent a day in Old Town, and learned a lot about the City and the Island's tremendous history. The food was excellent, although restaurants were a bit expensive (all the better to have a kitchen on-site). We felt safe throughout the visit, and would recommend the locale for a change of pace for a sunny destination. The trip there is long, at least from Colorado, so we'd recommend staying as long as possible. The home suited our needs very well, and we enjoyed the ground level unit. The Owner was very cordial and helpful. We did recommend repair of the sliding glass door lock that made it difficult to take advantage of the patio, and it's my guess this will be addressed. All in all it was a great trip - Thank you!

Wonderful Beach, Quiet location, Responsive owner

  • 4 of 5

The resort is quiet - we practically had a private pool and beach. The grounds are well maintained.

We enjoyed having the beach just steps from the apartment and all the supplies we needed (beach chairs, cooler, sand toys) were available in the unit.

The apartment was well stocked with dishes and some basic supplies.

The owner was very responsive and helpful.

The apartment itself is basic, it was clean but bathrooms could do with some updating.

Overall a comfortable and pleasant stay.

Warm and Inviting

  • 5 of 5

The pictures give a good impression, the space is better in person.

This space is warm and inviting, I felt at home instantly. It has all the accommodations of home, right down to the bottle opener.

I've rented other spaces were these small attention to detail items weren't available. I know it may sound picky but Imagine coming in from a long flight stopping at the market picking up a few cold ones or a nice Cab to unwind and there is no bottle opener. It's gonna be a situation. This space has the small and the Big things covered.

I really loved that it was steps away from the beach and had all the tools available to make for a fun and memorable day there.

The staff in charge of the grounds were kind and attentive, they made us aware that we had left the lights on to our car rental.

Also, Christian the property owner is very attentive to any issues you may make him aware of and respond promptly to them. We had a small wifi issue and he responded immediately to help resolve it.

Great space, you won't be disappointed.

Could not ask for more!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in Puerto Rico and it will not be our last. Cristian, the condo owner, was very helpful throughout the entire rental process. He answered all of our questions very quickly. His place is only steps away from a great swimming beach. The condo is located close to everything with shopping, great restaurants, and places to explore.

Cristian's condo was great for our family of five. We each spent hours relaxing in the hammock and we used the grill on the patio a lot. We felt very safe inside the facility and security was constantly making rounds.

Make sure to rent a car to use to get around and get a guide to take you to the hidden gems in the rainforest. We could not have asked for a better place to stay in Puerto Rico! Thank you Cristian. We appreciated everything you did to make our vacation perfect.
