Absolutely Beautiful!



Review submitted: June 2, 2014 Date of arrival: January 21, 2014



What a beautiful home! The pictures do not do it justice; it is even nicer in person. The home and beach (which is steps away) are absolutely beautiful. Very quiet and nice community. The beach is almost private. This was our first trip to Puerto Rico and we really enjoyed ourselves, there is so much to see and do. The people are so friendly, the island is beautiful and the weather is perfect! The home is very clean and has plenty of space to relax and enjoy both inside and out. Norma is the sweetest person in the world! We got lost coming from the airport late at night and after driving around for hours we finally called Norma at 4am!!! Norma answered right away and stayed on the phone with us until we were at the home and inside. We definitely recommend this home for your Puerto Rico vacation and cannot wait to go back again ourselves! Thank you again Norma!

Beautiful home by the beach

  • 5 of 5

I spent Thanksgiving with my family at this house and we had a wonderful time. The house is clean, comfortable and fully stocked with everything you can think of. The owner has thought of the smallest details to make your stay enjoyable - everything from toiletries, to kitchen utensils, pots & pans, coffee pot, beach chairs & towels, suntan lotion, even aloe vera in case you stay out in the sun too long! :-) The pool is great, they have a big bbq grill you can use (which we did), they have DVD's you can watch...the list goes on and on. There is a TV in every bedroom which is nice if you need a 'break' away from everyone. The neighborhood is very quiet, the beach is literally steps away. I recommend this house to anyone who is looking for a nice home away from home during their vacation.

Away from the crowds but close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Flawless! Everything was simply perfect. Plenty of room for all seven us. This home has everything you need no matter what you'd like to do. It's close to the beach and close to town. We loved using having the pool right out side the back door. The geckos were fun to watch scaling the wall as we bathed in the sun! Norma was very responsive and wonderful. Definitely a 5 star experience!

TOP PERFORMANCE HOUSE!!!

  • 5 of 5

After looking at other properties I finally found exactly what i was looking for Serenity,Service, very clean ,and beach walking distance. This beautiful house gives you everything you need for an amazing vacation. The housekeeper is very nice and available to you at any time and Norma the owner responds as quick as possible when ever you have a question.Im a very picky person and i can assure you that this house is impecable,Its fully furnished and equiped with all neccessary things. I loved the fact that it had high-speed internet wireless the beach is spectacular i felt very safe in the neighborhood where everybody is friendly, I think that the price is perfect for all that the house comes with. I felt so good in this house that i felt as i was in my own house. The pool is very good clean the pool-man does a great job. Im sure homeaway network put this house in the Top Performed listing in the whole Humacao area for the reasons i mentioned before. If you plan on traveling the island, the location is prime. It is 45 minutes from San Juan , 30 minutes from the Rainforest, and 30 minutes from Fajardo. Fajardo is where you can catch the boats to the two smaller islands, Culebra and Vieques. (FYI, I highly recommend a visit to Flamenco beach on Culebra. Rated one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, for good reason.) I would recomend this house to any one with my eyes closed, thanks Norma for maintaining your beach house in perfect conditions for us clients.I will definetly come back to this beach front paradise.

Marvelous beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying in this wonderful home. On our last vacations we stayed in a different house in the same community because Norma's home was fully booked and we were devastated. Norma's customer service and the details put into this house are incomparable. Norma was very responsive to all of our needs and maintained contact with us throughout our stay. Her booking and arrival process made our vacation swift by smoothly.

The Photos do not do this house justice. The house is beautiful, spacious and comfortable. It accomodated my family of 10 perfectly.

The front porch allows you to relax as you look out to the beach, and the back patio allows you to relax after playing in the pool or eat after grilling. The house was fully air conditioned and comfortable for kids as well. Three bathrooms all with a shower and spacious kitchen/ dining area. We were provided with everything from spices to cook to towels & sunblock, all you really need are your clothes when visiting this home.

My family and I have fallen in love with this jewel of a property and plan on returning again to make even more wonderful memories. We plan on booking ahead of time to secure our next vacation. Thank you so much Norma. You are truly the best !!

AMAZING!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

AWESOME! This home is everything you would want and need for a relaxing vacation. It is literally a few steps from the beach. And if you don't feel like walking to the beach you can sit by the pool on a hot, beautiful evening and relax while listening to the soothing sound of the waves. This beautiful home is well equipped with everything you need from extra linens to spices for cooking. It is spacious and very well kept. Accommodations were excellent. Everything is just a few minutes drive away. Neighborhood is very quiet and the neighbors are very friendly. The loudest noise you will hear is the beautiful noise of the famous "Coqui" of Puerto Rico. Thank You Norma for allowing my family and I the opportunity of celebrating my fiftieth birthday in your lovely home. We will stay in touch for our next vacation.
