A quiet retreat, as good as our luxury cruise

  • 5 of 5

We had five nights between the end of a cruise and our return to the UK. We wanted to avoid the usual San Juan extension and do something more local. This area, and particularly the apartment, were a fantastic choice.

While I wouldn't have given up the cruise, the five leisurely days in Elio and Maria's two-bedroom, ground-floor place in Casa Del Mar were just as special, in their own way. I could easily see spending two weeks here. There was none of the characterless feel you often get from holiday rentals; the place was beautifully and comfortably furnished, complete with original paintings on the walls and cheerful, tropical colour schemes. Internet, cable TV (a bit dodgy on the connection), air conditioning and ceiling fans let the husband lounge without fear of sunburn, while I could take to the patio furniture, with sea views, or walk across a short stretch of exquisitely maintained lawn to be on the beach.

The complex sits on a beautiful small bay, with short walks in either direction tipping backwards to other bays and other views. It's the Atlantic on this side of the island, so the surf and clarity are more like Florida than the Caribbean, but I was happy.

It wasn't very crowded until New Year's Eve, but the people who were there were all families quietly going about their own business. Everyone was exceptionally friendly and mostly native Puerto Ricans. Evidently most Americans from the mainland hole up in the Wyndham resort and rarely come out. What a waste! Our next door neighbours even brought us a plate of traditional food on New Year's Eve so we could have the local holiday experience, and everyone was quick with local restaurant and shopping recommendations.

This is a really exceptional location. The Casa Del Mar complex is very quiet, and exquisitely maintained. The lawns and gardens are exquisite. It's down a back road ... feels like the middle of nowhere, especially at night when the coqui frogs start up and it sounds like you're deep in the jungle. Despite feeling remote, however, you're well connected by fairly good roads and there's lots to do. You're in El Yunque rain forest in 20 minutes and Fajardo is just up the road, from where you can do deep sea fishing, catch ferries to outer islands, etc. And when it came time to leave, we were at San Juan airport in 45 minutes. Took us longer to check in than to get there!

I'm writing this from cold, gloomy England, and really wishing I were back at Elio and Maria's now!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Elio amd Maria's place. Elio was quick to respond to emails and text messages. The condo was a good size for a family of 5. The only thing that wold make the place better would be a few more spices in the kitchen for cooking. The beach was perfect my 12 year old son spent 2 days boogie boarding which were provided along with chairs for the beach. And the back yard patio was great for bbqing dinner.

Fantastic Property and Location!

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as advertised and we couldn't have asked for anything more. We were very happy with the amenities and the location was killer. We had everything we could have needed, everything was clean, kept nicely, and the owners were very easy and helpful to work with. The beach was beautiful and there was hardly a soul in sight when we stayed during the week, and very few people on the weekend. There are so many great restaurants in this area to choose from. The rain forest is very easy to get to and makes for a great trip. We would definitely recommend this property.

Excellent beach property for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this beach condo and are making plans to return this summer. Don Elio was very helpful and even bought a high chair and playpen and some toy blocks for our baby to use. Our older two (five and seven) loved staying in the room with the bunk beds. The beach is very child friendly as it is shallow and at the time we went the water was calm but still had small waves perfect for boogie boarding. (Boogie boards are included in the rental)

The kitchen has everything you need to make your own meals or you can go to many of the great restaurants and kiosks nearby.

The property was very clean upon our arrival and having a washer and dryer was a huge plus.

We went to the beach every day of our stay but also went to Old San Juan, Fajardo and other parts of the island. The location is a good home base for exploring Puerto Rico and like I mentioned before it is perfect for families with children.

We cannot wait to go back next year!!!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place! Condo is comfy, kitchen has everything and more than you need. Also: three separate A/C units, chairs and tents for the beach, very convenient patio, and close parking space for your car. Close to the beach, Rainforest park, not a long drive to the restaurants and grocery store, Walmart, pharmacy, and some other stores. It was so good for us, that we plan to return.

Wonderful place with great location!

  • 5 of 5

As the other reviewers wrote, this place is top notch! It really felt like home as they have it decorated it so nice and have everything you could think of and MORE! We have rented places before and it seems like most just have the basics, not this place, they have so many extra things for you to use. The patio was my favorite and was out there as much as possible, the kids enjoyed playing out in the garden area. Loved hearing the ocean at night, I felt very safe here and everyone around us was friendly. The beach was great, you could walk in either direction for a long way. Elio was always so helpful and responded right away to my emails. They were so kind and bought some beach toys/legos for my kids to play with. We had a little problem with the toilet and Elio was right there to fix it. The location is perfect for restaurants, other beaches, and the rain forest. The property was very well clean, you can tell they really take care of their place and want their renters to enjoy it as well. I would stay here again, hands down. Elio is such a sweet man and I talked to his wife on the phone, and she too was very sweet. You will not regret renting from them. Thank you again for letting us stay at your place, we all enjoyed our time there!
