Our stay was great from beginning to end. The property was very clean and accomodated our needs.
Myrna the point person was extremely cordial, helpful and efficient. Most important was the advantage of being in front of the beach.
Beautiful place right by the beach with a clear view of the beach. Convenient and impressive location. I loved it completely. I highly recommend to for any singles or couples.
Overall it was okay
First of all, I am not usually a picky consumer. That being said, there were some pros and some cons to this property.
Cons: #1. We arrived late due to a snowstorm in our local area which caused flight cancellations and caused us to lose 2 days of our vacation. Myrna was very nice but we felt the late fee that was charged for the lateness of our arrival was unwarranted, given the fact that we paid for 8 days and only stayed 7 days. If a late fee was due, the owner/manager should have offered to pay it. As a business owner, that is what I would have done.#2. The internet access never worked. I told Myrna immediately, but nothing was ever done to fix it, which caused us problems with business issues we had to resolve in some creative ways. #3. The owner/manager is very skimpy with the towels. We were there a week with one towel apiece to bathe and one towel apiece for the beach. We were shown a coin operated washer and dryer, but we opted to buy towels rather than give more money to the property owners. The towels were frayed and some had holes, which again, is rather tacky. I would never allow that in my rental property. #4. Be aware that the bathroom is tiny, tiny, tiny. I am small, but my boyfriend is over 6' tall and for him it was very uncomfortable just sitting on the toilet as his knees hit the sink. #5. The apartment is not as close to the beach as we thought. In retrospect, there were other options we could have chosen to stay were larger and just as close to the beach as this property. We chose this one because we thought it was right on the beach.
Pros: #1. The apartment was clean and very cute. #2. The bed was large and very comfortable. #3. The cooking space was adequately large as we cooked breakfast every morning and a couple of dinners. #3. The breeze from the ocean was wonderful and we actually turned off the air conditioner a lot and just opened the windows. #4. The beach is very nice, one of the nicest ones for swimming that we saw while in Puerto Rico. #5. Myrna was very nice and seemed to genuinely care, unlike the property owners, who seemed to ignore our issues with the internet.
Overall, we had a great time, but when we come back, we will pay a little extra and go somewhere larger.
Peaceful and Relaxing Stay
To all looking for a simple clean place next to the beach... Stay here!! I chose to stay here and not in a hotel because I hate the fact of paying royal fees in a place I will only sleep in. Not only is the beach steps away so are the restaurants and Walgreens and bars. Thank you Myrna for being so attentative during our stay!!! I will definitely come back!!
Thank you for sharing your experience, Cindy. It was a pleasure being your host and we would love to welcome you again at any time.

some what disappointed
I was disappointed to find roaches every place...even carried some home in my luggage. Was depending on the wi-fi and after several calls we had it for one evening....very disappointed. The room was ok for 2 people, the beach was near.
To our future Guests:
We would like to be very frank in our response and share with you that this review is nothing short of a big, fat lie. The Guest who wrote it had not once contacted us during or after her stay about any roach and at check out even stated she was HAPPY. How could she have been happy with roaches all over the place and seriously - would she have stayed the entire week in a rental full of roaches without saying a word to us, without leaving early, without asking for help? Please rest assured that our rental is not filled with insects and also that our Internet works just fine. You may have to reset it, if you didn't use it for a longer period of time, but that is all. In the case of this Guest, she was incapable to enter the password correctly, which is a given to make it work. So indeed she was in touch with us during her stay, we even drove her all the way to the next Casino once, but at no moment she mentioned a single roach.
Furthermore, if you decide to stay with us and at any moment do see a roach or any other bug anywhere, be assured that we will be over asap and work on it. In order for you to hopefully never see one, we do exterminate once a month. We love what we do & we would love to welcome you.
The experience was great! From the professional staff to the exceptional service from Myrna. She went out of her way to accommodate me and even picked me up from the airport due to booking rental car a day later. The property was clean, spacious and welcoming. Beach was steps away, shopping was walking distance as well as night life. Fun, fun!!! Private parking, quiet and pleasant. Best place compared to hotel prices and other rentals! I travel very frequently and after finding this place, will not want to stay elsewhere!!
Thank you very much for taking the time and posting your review.
We certainly hope to welcome you very soon again. The VidaUrbanaPR Team
