This is our beach apartment which we absolutely love. It's a little over 200 steps (I counted them) from the water. Very quiet and quaint. It's the perfect getaway from all the stress and noise of city life but very close to everything you need. If you like the beach, the rain forest and chilling out, this is for you. This is perfect for a couple looking for a quiet place for some good quality time on the beach.

About Angel Valentín
I'm a freelance photographer and a beach and outdoors lover. My wife is an accountant. We were both born and raised in PR and have made Miami our home away from PR for many years. We bought this apartment as our vacation home and we travel to PR several times/year. Love the place, feel safe and comfortable there.
Angel Valentín purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Angel Valentín chose Zarzal
Safety, priceless beach, sense of community and LOCATION.
What makes this Apartment unique
Feels like you are in your own private beach. Most days and nights you can't even hear a neighbor. There are 344 units in this complex but I've never seen it even 50% occupied.

Best vacation ever !
Our first visit to Boriken (PR), and we loved it ! The complex was beautifully landscaped and maintained, the condo elegantly minimal but well provided with linens, towels, beach chairs, grill, and plenty of places to stow our stuff. Potted plants provided privacy on our little patio, which looked out across the lawn to the nicer of the two swimming pools. We walked toward the sound of the surf and sat in the shade of palm trees to look across the soft sand at the gentle ocean. Great swimming ! Wonderful breezes ! We never needed AC. No cable, TV, or WiFi - what a relief ! You don't even realize how good that is until it's gone. And when we really needed to connect, a pleasant walk along the beach to the friendly neighboring Resort got us online. Good restaurants both uphill and down, El Yunque, the National Rainforest across the highway. We went there twice, old San Juan once. So much more to do, but we were perfectly content to stay put. Fragrance from one of the more unusual patio plants perfumed our bedroom. We'll be back !
Thank you and I'm glad you enjoyed it. You're welcome back anytime !

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the apartment. It was clean, well supplied and close to the beach. The area was very safe and the staff on the grounds very friendly. Angel and his wife were very accommodating from the time we initially contacted them until we left. Our arrival time was delayed and they kindly waited for us and gave us a complete tour. They were also helpful prior to our arrival, giving suggestions for dining, sight seeing and general information to make our stay pleasurable. This property is away from the hustle and bustle, but close to many surrounding attractions such as Vieques, the Yunque Rainforest and Old San Juan. It is an easy drive from the airport. Our time flew by and we look forward to returning to Puerto Rico. I would highly recommend this property and thank Angel and his wife for their hospitality and help making our stay a memorable one.
Thank you so much for renting from us. We're glad you were able to enjoy what we call our little piece of heaven in Puerto Rico. It's a well kept secret we're happy to share. You are always welcome to stay as many times as you want.
Nice, quite, and near nature - would stay there again
I stayed one month at this apartment with my family and had a great time just waking up and going to the beach first thing in the morning. It is a nice area to enjoy Puerto Rico without the hassle of the metro area (San Juan has a lot of traffic).
Close to nature
Aside from the beach, the apartment is a short drive from El Yunque (~20 min), a tropical rainforest. It is really handy to be close to el Yunque because you can check the weather conditions before you go for a hike (they call it a rainforest for a reason).
Additionally, Las Cabezas de San Juan (a national reserve) is about a 40 minute drive and is also worth the visit. On the same rout to 'Las Cabezas' is the ferry to Culebra and Vieques, which are known for their awesome white-sand beaches.
The apartment is close (5 min drive) to a big hotel and casino in case you want some action at night.
The owner was really nice and helpful in getting us settled in.
Worth mentioning is that there are coconut palms all over the area. Throughout my stay I often drank fresh coconut water, yumm.
Thank you very much. We're glad you brought all your good vibes to our apartment.
