Breathtaking and Incredible Location!!

  • 5 of 5

First, Diane is truly a class act! She was most welcoming to my family and I when we first arrived. She went out of her way to make herself available the entire trip and went above and beyond by bringing us lunch one day. Nothing better than good ole Puerto Rican food!! My youngest son got hurt on the trip and she displayed so much compassion by checking in on him daily and even going so far as to bake him a delicious Rum cake. Again, a fantastic family that is second to none!! The house was nicer that the pictures showed and extremely clean when we arrived. The balcony was absolutely the place we all enjoyed hanging out at night and day. It provided a one million dollar view!! The community was secure and very safe. The reef/lagoon was fantastic to swim, kayak and go snorkeling in. My boys and I had so much fun and it provided an opportunity for great memories. The location was convenient to San Juan, El Yuenque and many of the other attractions on the Island. We will definitely be back and I highly recommend this house as a vacation destination!!

Amazing, beautiful and as welcoming as home, all thanks to Diane

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using VRBO to find a vacation rental. I was hesitant that the rental home wouldn't be like the pictures. The owner Diane met me at the home when I arrived. I was amazed ! I could hardly focus while she have me the tour of her spacious, and impeccably decorated home. I kept repeating to myself, "this is amazing!" The views are stunning and the private beach was more than we could ask for. Its located close to everything from shopping to dining out. It was our first vacation to Puerto Rico and my brother and his family joined me. I chose the rental and set everything up, so there was a potential a lot of people could be either happy or disappointed. They were just as amazed as I was. With 8 of us staying at the home, there were questions that came up. The owner, Diane is simply magnificent. Whenever I texted her with a question, she answered so quickly it was as though she was waiting for my text. She was the most gracious host, answering questions, and giving suggestions. She even stopped by a few mornings to check on how we were doing. she made everything available to us from cooking supplies to bicycles to beach gear. I could go on and on about the beauty of the home and the way we felt so welcomed by Diane. As a side note, I had left behind a personal item. I called Diane, and of course received a reply right away. She actually took a picture to confirm the item and personally went and mailed it back to me. I received it a few days later. That's not the act of a renter, that's something a friend would do. Simply put, its not just a vacation rental, it's like staying at your new friends home. I'll finish by saying, if your considering a rental location in Dorado that can accommodate up to 12 people. Look no further. This is the place, and you will not be disappointed. IT IS AMAZING !!!

Home in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire experience was exceptional! Diane always made herself available for any question we had prior to our arrival. Once there, we were greeted by her friend, Debbie. Debbie was amazing with guiding us through the house and answered questions about local restaurants and acitivities.

Diane's beach house had every amenity one could ask for. We really felt like we were at home. There is so much attention to detail, it did not go unnoticed. The house was VERY spacious and every bed was like sleeping on a cloud. Diane also had beach chairs, life vests, a boogie board, a cooler and kayaks! We visited a number of local beaches so having the chairs and cooler were perfect!! The home is situated on the beach, so you could hear the ocean throughout the day. Quite peaceful actually. Diane prepared a book with restaurants and excursion information. Which was quite helpful.

The beach was literally steps away. We took advantage of the kayaks and used them there.

There were other locals there who were very welcoming. In fact everyone joined in on tossing a football around.

The main terrace was the perfect area for us to get together for late night talks. Two of the bedrooms upstairs had terraces. Perfect to catch the morning sunrise and evening sunsets. True paradise!

Overall, we had an awesome time and none of us wanted to leave!

Would highly recommend this home for the perfect, tranquil and hastle free getawa!.

Diane - thank you so much for your hospitality! We will ABSOLUTELY be back again!

Melinda, Juan and family.

Awesome house directly on the coast

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight had a great time at the house. The living room and outdoor terrace were the main attractions and well used. Liked having the casual small wildlife come by - hermit crabs, pelicans. The kitchen is well stocked. The bedrooms were large and nicely furnished. The air conditioners worked great and created a refuge after a day of sun and the open air living room. All the amenities you need. We loved it. Great price too.

So close to beach. About 20 steps down through the gate. Liked having the security gated entrance. Plenty of beach toys. Loved the kayak. Great snorkeling in our almost private cove / beach. Saw many fish, brain coral, sea urchins, and a large barracuda on the final day. Beach is a bit slanted for a short walk and blocked by concrete in water at nearby resort. However there is a paved hiking trail next door going around the fancy dorado beach resort. It is a little tricky getting to dorado resort portion. Would definitely recommend the house but keep it quiet so it doesn't get too booked up and the price doesn't increase dramatically. The owner and caretaker were great to work with and kept in touch to make sure all was fine. 😊
