One of the best vacations ever!
From the moment we arrived Marcos made us feel right at home and let us know he was just a phone call away for anything we needed. The house from the outside to inside was beautiful and very warming. The deck was the best part of the house for us. Where we played games and was able to enjoy the view of the ocean a few miles away and the sound of Coqui’s at night. The neighborhood was peaceful through out the whole day. This was our first time every renting our own place while coming to Puerto Rico and I was a bit nervous since we usually just stay with family, but it was honestly the best decision and we look forward to coming back and have another opportunity to stay here. I stayed there with my husband, my two children ages of 8 and 2 and a friend of ours. The only down side I would have to say is that it went by to fast!
It was great with amazing views from all around the house
We saw alot an did everything we wanted to do in our 6 day stay Mr. Lopez was wonderful
It was exactly what we needed!
Our stay was absolutely amazing! We had everything we needed. My favorite part was the back porch. We started and ended each day out there. Amazing!!
Perfect Vacation Home for Those Who Love Exploring
This quaint home is perfect for those who seek refuge from the city life, but wants the safety of amenities. The villa has two bedrooms with window a/c units that were on a timer from 8pm to 8am. This was fine with us since we were off exploring the island everyday and the weather was delightful. What amazed us the most is how we were able to have all the windows and doors open and not a bug came in to harass us. Seriously, we brought mosquito repellent and did not have to use it once. The kitchen had the necessities needed to cook meals. When we were at the house we spent most of the time on the balcony enjoying the views and the songs of the wildlife. We even went hiking in the early mornings throughout the neighborhood and found plenty of passion fruit that we ate for breakfast. The neighborhood was quiet (except for the nature sounds) and we felt quite safe. We love the fact that a few minutes away were the beaches, the rain forest and since we rented a car we were able to take adventures throughout the entire island. We stayed for 8 days and not once saw a bug in the house, nor did we have any major problems. My mother in law stayed on the futon in the living room and refused to sleep with the windows or door open to get the fresh air, so it became quite stuffy since there was no a/c. That was about the only issue we had. Any other issues Marcos addressed them right away. If you are looking for a unique, comfortable, quaint, nature filled, home away from home, then this is the place to come. We definitely want to come back....but this time with out the mother-in-law or teen....lol!!
Great Vacation house
My stay at Marcos place was great. It's an amazing home with a beautiful view from the balcony. The rooms were spacious and beds very comfortable, the home had everything you need to feel right at home. Marcos was very attentive, he was also amazing. My family that came to visit me loved the place so much they stayed with me until the end of my vacation.
The purpose of my trip with my mom was to attended her nephew's wedding and needed a place that can accommodate her needs, Marcos place was it, perfect. Later found out that Marcos already knew some members of my family years ago, what a small world, he also attended the wedding.
The home is definitely better than staying at a hotel, highly recommended.
Marcos thank you for everything and hope to come back soon, with no doubts will stay again.
I had the pleasure of staying at this villa for a week. When we first arrived to Luquillo we met up with Mr. Lopez and followed him to the property. The villa is located in a quiet, safe, gated community. The property was clean and spacious with plenty of windows to keep it cool during the day (a/c runs for 12 hours per day, don't worry you'll probably turn it off). My favorite aspect was the balcony which is accessible from the kitchen and master bedroom. The view from the balcony was absolutely breathtaking! Mr. Lopez was very kind and made sure we were satisfied during our stay. He even provided us with native rum and cake! Yum! There is also plenty of restaurants and fun activities (ATV, horseback riding, zip-lining, etc) nearby. I would definitely recommend staying here if you visit Luquillo!
Luquillo is a small town offering mountains and beaches. About 30 minutes from the San Juan airport, it is easily accessible. Within a few minutes of the house, the following activities can be found: snorkeling, sailing, deep sea fishing, surfing, swimming, and hiking. The Bioluminescent Bay in Fajardo is a favorite, as are Catamaran day snorkeling trips. There are five major golf courses within 10 miles. ATV, horse back riding, and go carts are available at Hacienda Carabali. Guests can also enjoy El Yunque Rain Forest, zip lining, waterfall tours, lighthouse tours, many restaurants and the ever-popular Kioskos. El Conquistador resort and spa as well as Rio Mar casino are only 15 minutes away. The back deck off the kitchen is a haven for relaxing after a day of fun and exploring.
