Right in the center of town in Loiza, during the last week of July, the locals celebrate the St. Jaime's Carnival, wearing colorful masks and costumes, while singing and dancing their traditional and contagious music. These Afro-Caribbean cultural trends have been beautifully and tastefully captured by the local artists, Samuel Lind and the Ayala family. Their respective homes and 'taller' workshops are only steps from the Malibu gate. Loiza is also home to Iglesia San Patricio, which dates to 1670 and is the oldest church in continuous use in Puerto Rico. Tasty fresh crab (JUEYES) dishes can also be found through out the town of Loiza, the family owned/operated 'El Sazon de Silvia' restaurant is among the best in the island.

Ania 04/12/2008

We had a wonderful time in Puerto Rico. We did a lot of traveling: we went south to Ponce and visited the Museo Castillo Serralles. We saw the radio telescope in the west. We visited the rain forest and saw the great exhibits there. We visited the Bacardi factory (to my 18-year daughter's delight). We spent lots of time in San Juan visiting different restaurants. We went to different beaches and saw the huge waves. Thanks for your warning. A number of the beaches were actually closed but we always found some that were open. We enjoyed the iguanas greeting us every day: they were sun-bathing on the wall outside the compound and were quite happy to pose for pictures. Thanks again, Ania, George and Sophie

About Maria

International Flight Attendant is my second career after my retirement. I travel every chance I get when I'm not doing it for work. If I don't get right back to you is because I am "up in the air".

Why Maria chose Santillana del Mar

We take great pride in our vacation home and it is a joy to share it with others who will enjoy it to the fullest but treat it with the care it deserves. Our home is tastefully decorated and it is equipped with all the amenities you would expect in a cherished property. As frequent travelers ourselves, we understand what makes a vacation home a fun and comfortable place to stay; a place which will encourage you to return again and again. The furnishings are in excellent condition. The condo is clean and well maintained with everything in good working order. Also, for your convenience, you will be provided with a local contact in the event something in the condo may need attention during your stay.

We love the location - close to the San Juan Metro area, yet away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The complex is beautiful and well maintained.. I love to relax in my LARGE balcony and enjoy the vista.

See you at Malibu Beachfront, Loiza, Puerto Rico!

What makes this condo unique

LOCATION! Away from the city but yet easy access to many points of interest- only 14 miles east of San Juan airport.

Carribean round trip

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 6 persons from Switzerland making a carribean round trip starting in Puerto Rico Feb 09. As we arrived in Puerto Rico we met Maritza at the airport-she gave us the keys and explained the way to Loiza-Everything was fine and we easily found our malibu condo. Its a very nice area situated directly at the sea with a very nice garden and a clean, lovely pool. In the appartement we had everything we needed and enough space for 6 persons. Loiza is close to san juan, the rain forest, the port for culebra and vieques-so very good location for active vacation. We really enjoyed our stay in the Malibu Condo Loiza and we would recommend this location to everyone looking for a tranquil vacation with the possibility for lots of activities.

Enjoyed our time in Loiza!

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to write this without repeating many of the comments previously made.

The location is great because close to many things (Old San Juan, El Yunque Rain Forest) but not in the "tourist area".

Beaches were clean and QUIET.

The unit has a great notebook of "local things to see" that included restaurants, local artisans and stores. We also explored on our own and found a small local bakery with FANTASTIC food. Additionally there are "chain stores" also very close by when you need them.

While we try to go somewhere new on every vacation, if we return to Puerto Rico we'll definitely check to see if this place is available.

Owner's Response: Jeffrey, It was a real pleasure to have y'all as guests. I sincerely hope that you pay us a visit in the near future and allow me the opportunity to make it up to you for the days that you were without cable in one of the TV's.. I am so glad you visited the local artisans -The Ayala family. Just recently for the Fiestas de Loiza, I was at their "batey" as they had an exhibition not only of their masks but also the dancers were out there singing and dancing the typical music of Loiza- BOMBA! Hope to see you back in our little piece of paradise. Maria

First trip to Puerto Rico!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 spent the last week of June 2017 enjoying this wonderful condo. Maria was very helpful and sent us a list of things to do prior to our arrival. She also responded quickly during our vacation when my daughter accidently blew a fuse in her room. The condo was very clean and had all the comforts of home, even had things like dish soap and hand soap for the sinks. Condo had plenty of towels including beach towels. All 3 bedrooms cool quickly with the air conditioners and there was typically a breeze through the living room when we had the doors open. The pools were great and kept very clean, reminds you of a mini resort pool. The community was quiet and sits back from the main road. We explored everyday including Bacardi tour in San Juan, El Yunque, Luquillo Beach(beautiful beach with clear water and amenities), Bio Bay tour and we spent one day exploring the many small private beaches on 187 heading toward San Juan. We also got a boat ride over to Cayo Icacos from Fajardo by Capitan Mingo for around 25 dollars a person. He dropped us off and them came back later to pick us up. The condo is very convenient to a lot of areas, 15 mins to El Yunque, 50 mins to Fajardo, 30 mins to Luquillo, and 40 mins to San Juan. Thanks Maria for your hospitality!!

An amazing home away from home

  • 4 of 5

I recently had the pleasure of staying in this property with my family of five. We were afforded all the luxuries of a home, from well-kept and stylish rooms to our own kitchen and grill. Our property had an adjoining patio which was great for sharing breakfast in the mornings. After we would walk less then 5 minutes to the property's beach which was private and absolutely gorgeous. Our sincerest of thanks to the owner of the property for allowing us an extended day with a late check-out. We had a wonderful time, and we will be returning hopefully in the following year.

Loiza - Malibu Beach Condo

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the condo for a whole month of March. The Condo is not fancy but comfortable. Private access to the beach by the fence gate. A quite sandy beach with a lot of shades, coconut and palm trees. We were concerned about the neighborhood at first when we drove in, but it is very safe and peaceful. We found a local supermarket name 'Econo' that has everything. Walmart is about 15 mins drive. Thanks Maria for everything.

A visit to the rustic kiosks on route # 3, on the way to the Rain Forest in the neighbor town of Luquillo, is a must. There you can sample the real Puerto Rican dishes and appetizers such as Cod fritters (bacalaitos), sweet plantain wrapped around seasoned meat (piononos) or a fritter filled with crab or ground beef (alcapurrias) or mashed plantains stuffed (mofongo) with skirt steak (churrasco), shrimp (camarones), chicken (pollo) or sea food (mariscos) while drinking cold coconut water straight from the coconut. To spice things up add a little bit of Dewers to your coconut water.

El Metropol - we recommend this restaurant as soon as you get to San Juan or on your way out as it is located only few minutes from the airport. This place is an institution, where you can find typical Puertorrican as well as Cuban dishes. They are famous for their mojito's , pineapple with rum (pina colada- which by the way -La Barrachina in the Old San Juan claims to be the creators of this refreshing drink).

You can enjoy the local beer-MEDALLA- in any establishment.

A short drive from the airport on the way to Malibu right after the Marina bridge and before entering Rd 187 there is THE REEF.- offering amazing view, great local food, fresh seafood, famous for their MOFONGO, Please observe the NO PARKING signs in the area. Valet parking available.

About 6 miles into Road 187 (about half way to the condo) there is the most famous kiosk in this area.-EL BORICUA. There is usually a line to place the order as all items are fried as orders come in. Everything is fresh and cooked on wood burning stoves. Their specialty is CRAB (JUEYES) dishes cooked in a variety of ways. Located across from a surf point, the then family home would provide parking, food and refreshments to the surfers. Although the location has not changed, the building has been expanded to accommodate the hundreds of daily visitors (specially on weekends) who come to enjoy fresh JUEYES alcapurrias, empanadas or simply accompanied with rice.

Cold Fresh coconut water and Medalla beer are always available.

Credit cards are accepted and there is plenty of parking in the back of the building.
