Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded our expectations! If you are looking for a place to unwind and getting away from the crazy everyday life then this house is for you. The house is very spacious, clean, and has very thing you need. We loved the fact that we could walk right to Playa Santa beach. The view from the beach side patio is a mazing with a nice breeze coming in off the ocean. The house is in a gated community so our family felt very safe. The owner was very pleasant to deal with. I would highly recommend this house, and I will rent it again.

My family and I stayed at this house for 22 days in June 2016. The first night we arrived, it was late and very hot but once we got all the windows open, the ocean breeze made it more comfortable. The A/C worked in all the bedrooms also. The next morning, we got our first view of the ocean and beach, Playa Santa. It was amazing! The house was clean and had plenty of space for 2 adults and 3 children. We also had room for additional family that stayed periodically throughout our trip. The house was simple, yet well decorated. It is in a very safe, gated community. We ate breakfast outside every morning, over looking the ocean. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking, but there are also several nearby places to eat out. We spent several days enjoying the amazing beach, which you get to by walking a very short (maybe 30 feet) trail. The trail has a locked gate, which is a bonus, to keep other beach goers out of the gated community. I can not think of anything that would have made this house better! It had everything we were looking for and is in a perfect location. It was hard to leave! I highly recommend staying here and hope it is available for our next trip to Puerto Rico!

This is a great place to vacation and it is very safe and secure!!!

The beach house came as advertised! This neighborhood in Guanica (Ensenada-Playa Santa) does not get the tourist traffic that other more well know locations receive (Hint: beach used mostly by locals). That said, the home is within reasonable location to the majority of attractions in Puerto Rico's southwest coastline. Other than the cleaning crew missing a used coffee filter from the previous occupants, the house was cleaned properly. This home has a spectacular lower and upper patio level view of the beach and waterfront. Management was pleasant to deal with. I would definitely recommend this property for families and large groups. Don't miss La Parguera with it's bio-bay and Cabo Rojo's beautiful Playa Sucia and Faro (lighthouse)!

Has Great Potential

  • 3 of 5

Nice ocean side patio, unfortunately across the bay is a bar that was blasting loud music most afternoons & evenings until late. To sleep we had to shut all windows & use the A/C, no ocean breezes. The apt. itself needed a very good cleaning, we spent over an hour upon arrival sweeping/mopping all floors, & the bathroom needed a lot of extra attention. The owner was very pleasant to deal w/ as far as details getting keys, etc...It was easy to get groceries from the big grocery store in Guanica, about 12 minutes drive. The location was very scenic.

Ponce, PR
Nearest Beach
Playa Santa
Car: necessary

Guanica is one of the best relaxing areas in Puerto Rico. It´s dryer air makes everything feel more lay back. This small village of Playa Santa area has one of the best beaches in Puerto Rico and is a very quiet one, perfect for the hole family. The area is pretty much secluded and you will need to shop for food on Guanica Town before going to the house. We do recommend to stop in the fruit stand along the 116 road on the way to Guanica. Around the beach (walking distance from the house) you do have a few restaurants to have lunch or dinner. Also 30 minutes away in the next town, Yauco, you have a shopping center with many shops (if you are coming from Ponce, is a good place to stop for food as well). 20 minutes away you have the next village that is ¨La Parguera¨ where you can take tours to the bio-luminescent lagoon and also have restaurants that serves great fresh sea food. On of the best attractions on the area is the Federal Natural Reserve of ¨Bosque Seco de Guanica¨ (guanicas´ dry forest) Don´t miss it and bring lots of water. Behind the forest, there is another secluded beach that it can only be accessed by boat and it is in the San Jacinto Area and the place is called ´Guilligans Island´ Is worth to spend half a day there relaxing in the sun.
