Had potential just needs to some TLC
The complex is beautiful despite post hurricane María damage. You can see workers all over fixing up buildings throughout. This apartment was nice just needed to be maintained. I feel the owner or “property manager “ was not to concerned about my comfort or that of my family. When we arrived I messaged him through the “home away” app and he took a day to get back to me. ( usually his reply time or longer). The air conditioner in the living room (only room with a tv ) was not working at all. And to add insult to injury the big patio windows and door which were all glass could not be covered because the shade was broken and rolled up on the floor! So no shade and no air conditioning for my son who slept in the futon. (We are 5 total). The front door sticks and makes a loud snapping sound everytime it’s opened, the washer sounded like it’s broken, couldn’t get the dining ceiling fan to work only the light and lastly the water pressure was weak and mostly hot water. As odd as that sounds. The master bed shower controls are backwards. Like I stated this place has a great potential to be a 5 star however maybe better communication from the “owner” and even some better reply then “ I’ll contact my maintenance guy for the air” and for the last 6 days we just sweat in that main area. I even messaged him after we left and told him about the air again for the next renter and got nothing. Home away needs to police these landlords better. Actually send out a rep to check these amenities. Won’t use this place again. And before you feel I’m picky. Try to sit in a living room/ dining room with no air on a normal Puerto Rico evening and let me know how comfortable it is.
Beware ! My payments were taken instantly, my fees my cleaning fees etc. but I couldn’t get any answers to my questions.
I hope things get better for this place. Because it truly has potential.
Family trip to my home
Great trip nice place to stay with family close to all will definitely stay again felt like home everyone was very friendly
Beatiful Ocean views
Few items inside the condo weren't up to par but overall it was a very nice stay at this condo
The condo was beautiful and clean. Just what we expected from the pictures. In a very excluded and secure property. Our family enjoyed staying here instead of a hotel.
Beautiful condo in great eastern location
POST-HURRICANE MARIA REVIEW:
My 5 friends and I had a wonderful time staying in this fully furnished condo. The master bedroom was equipped with a king-sized bed and a child-sized bed with dual sinks outside the bathroom. The other two bedrooms had a single queen-sized bed each. Additionally, the living room had a futon that folds into a comfy bed (I don't think this is in the description). The beds were surprisingly comfy. Don't expect a TempurPedic but they are some of the comfier beds I've used on vacation. The air conditioning is a wonderful addition to each room (PR is humid at all times). The balcony faces the marina and has a great view of the sunrise every morning. Huge windows allow for full sun and make the condo seem larger than it is. We suggest opening all the windows to allow for a great ocean breeze through the condo. The included washer/dryer combo is AMAZING for washing beach clothing and removing sand and seawater. Jose includes every appliance (plus more) that you need for a vacation. The refrigerator has FILTERED water to drink with an ice maker. There is also an instant water heater that ACTUALLY works, so we all had warm showers and hot water for washing dishes. We provided ourselves with basics (dish soap, laundry detergent, etc) which are all available at the Walmart or Ralph's up PR-3 (main highway on the east side of the island).
The only thing that I could suggest for improvement would be that Jose doesn't reply well on the VRBO messaging platform. However, he sends a very professional letter that has information that you need to contact him, so just use his phone number (on his letter, NOT the number VRBO has) and he will get back to you! Also, he had stated in his message that a neighbor was going to open the door for us since we didn't have the condo key yet, but we had to buzz every condo in the complex till someone came to open the door. She was very kind but didn't know any English so that was a personal barrier we had. Hopefully, Jose can find a different way to get the key to renters so this small hinderance isn't one in the future.
Also, when you arrive you will need to use the gate closest to the guard station. They will ask for the apartment number, full name, and driver's license ID number. So be sure to have that information handy.
Overall, Jose provided an incredible condo at an incredible price for our stay. I would in no doubt rent with Jose again in the future. Thank you for the great experience!
