About Arturo Gonzalez
My name is Arturo González I was born and raised in sunny Miami, Florida. My family is originally from Cuba and also Puerto Rico. I love to enjoy the beautiful beaches and laid back lifestyle from the islands. I am a nurse practitioner by profession and have a very stressful and demanding work life. I purchased this home in 2000 and love to use this home to unwind and embrace a peaceful setting. This is truly an oasis.
Arturo Gonzalez purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Arturo Gonzalez chose Río Abajo
One of the best places in the world to go on vacation is Puerto Rico. In this exquisite home away from home, you can definitely enjoy everything Puerto Rico has to offer for you. Whether you want a day at the beach, a night out on the town, or just a relaxing evening at home. This home is you. With 4000 sq ft of living area, you'll never be crowded whether it's you and your mate or you're entire family. You can sleep up to 8 comfortably! Just steps to the Caribbean ocean, this 2-story Mediterranean home is completely furnished, with a beautiful landscaping, private outdoor pool, washer & dryer, air conditioned throughout, jetted hot tub in the master bathroom, and many extras. You can admire the ocean right from home.
What makes this Villa unique
Local Beaches Puerto Rico has some of the best beaches fit for an oasis. From this beautiful caribbean oasis, you can relax and truly call this home. You'll feel nothing less than the comforts of home and much more. Located just steps from the beach in Villa Palmira, Humacao, is this incredible home. You have access to crystal clear beaches nearby just a drive away!
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
The home is as advertised- lovely furnishings, fully stocked, clean & the pool is terrific. The neighborhood is a bit rough-looking with many houses heavily damaged. It is completely safe & neighbors are friendly. The beach was not usable due to abundance of seaweed, which apparently is common in the area this time of year. It is a bit out of the way, so you will be driving to most places. Make sure you have good GPS because PR roads/exits aren't marked well (or at all in some cases!) Arturo was very responsive & informative about things to do/see while you are in PR.
Thank you for your 5 Star review. I am pleased to know you enjoyed my home as much as I do. Unfortunately, some of my neighbors are still struggling to restore their homes post hurricane Maria. I am very happy you noticed that it is completely safe, and neighbors are friendly. Puerto Rican neighbors a truly the most hospitable and giving people I’ve ever met.
The beach could certainly have seaweed, which is common in the area this time of year. However, on your next visit, I recommend you walk over to the natural reserve next to our neighborhood and cross over the fort and you will see that the beach on the other side of the mountain tends to have less seaweed.
Once again, I thank you for your heart felt words and certainly look forward to having you over once again. You and your family were truly amazing guest.
Thank you, Arturo
We stayed at this beautiful home for a girls week away. The house is very big with room to sit around and chat with each other as well as sit quietly and read. The back yard was the best! Loved evening swims and eating dinner outside. The beach was easy to access, although we were unable to swim. It was a great week
Thank you very much for your review. I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed yourselves in my home. Thank you as well for being wonderful tenants and taking care of my home as it was your own. Hope to host you on your next trip back to Puerto Rico!
Arturo’s home is stunning, the pictures truly don’t do it justice. The private pool was perfect and we spent even more time at the home than planned because of how great it was. We stayed for a full week and had absolutely everything we needed, including all beach necessities. The home is located in a gated community, close to a beautiful nature reserve. It was a five minute drive from Walmart and a grocery store, which was very convenient. We truly didn’t want to leave Arturo’s gorgeous home and would love to stay again in the future.
Thank you for your excellent review and heartfelt words. It is a pleasure to know you enjoyed my home as much as I do when staying there. I look forward to hosting you on your next trip back. Once again thank you for being an amazing guest and taking care of my home as if it were your own.

Que te puedo decir ... Arturo thank so much for the bottle wine and beer. Your house is so beautiful, clean ,spacious and cozy. No tengo palabras para describir todo lo bonito que fue nuestra estadía en tu casa. Te decoration of the house it was so pretty. I love the art paint you have at the master room lol. I love the house because was so close to the private beach. My kids spent most of the time in the pool. It was a very quiet and safety gated community . Toda la casa está equipada con todo lo que necesitamos. It was plainty toallas, toilet paper, soup, chairs for the beach. Arturo house was so clean and spacious and comfortable for my entire family. We was close to the grocery store and restaurants.
The house location was great for us because we drove 30 minutes to ceiba ferry. The culebra trip was amazing, flamenco beach so beautiful with crystalline turquesie water. I

AMAZING PUERTO RICO DREAM VACATION
The pictures do not do this home justice!! It is WONDERFUL!!! It is spacious, very well maintained, beautifully decorated and has everything you will need for a comfortable stay. The owner sent a detailed email with directions from the airport, links to tours and reviews of local restaurants. We took advantage of several tours and had a blast! We had rental cars so traveling to destinations was managable each morning. The local roadside restaurants outside the neighborhood are delish! I would recommend this home for family/families vacationing for an adventure and trip of a lifetime!!
Thank you for your heartfelt words. It was a pleasure to have you and your family as my guests in my home. I am so happy you enjoyed all of my recommendations as far as restaurants and tours. Puerto Rico has so much to offer. I would love to host you all on your next trip to Puerto Rico. Once again, I thank you for choosing my home for your vacation.
All the best,
5 Stars! Wonderful Home
We are from SC, and had a party of 9. 4 Adults , 2 15 Yr olds, 2 13 Yr olds and a 7 Yr old. It was perfect. So spacious, everything we needed was there- all the extras in the kitchen. We enjoyed the pool, the beach and the proximity to go to Old San Juan, El Yunque, Fishing Charter out of Marina Puerto Chico in Fajardo, Caribe Bliss Day Tour to Culebrita, and a day at Luquillo Beach. They all great were great day trips. Best place to eat- Olas. We loved the Alcupprias- Best Ever! Puerto Rico is wonderful, 'and Humacao is a beautiful place. The home had beautiful artwork and amazing landscape. The flowers and smells first thing in morning- were delightful. Any questions we had through the process were answered immediatly, and it was easy to navigate. We also had family in two other homes inside the same neighborhood, walking back and forth - very safe and a stunning view. Also, anything you could need or want is with in a 5 minute drive. What an incredible trip - We give Puerto Rico 5 stars all around. Airport, car rental, Home Away, All Charters and Trips - We LOVE PR!!!!! Thank You! We will be back! 3-20 / 3-30 2019. - Sadie Charleston SC
