About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

We have two rentals in our home on the ocean. The main floor unit has two bedrooms, full kitchen, one bath, living room, and deck. It can sleep five; two in each of the queen-size beds and one in the twin-size rollaway. sleeps 5 for $100 a night.

The unit upstairs has one bedroom, living room, full kitchen, one-and-one-half baths, two balconies, and a roof-top terrace. This unit can sleep five; two in the queen-size bed in the bedroom, two in the full-size rollaway, and one in the twin rollaway. sleeps 5 for $100 a night.

each unit is about 1200 square feet with a private entrance and use of a shared washer and dryer and front porch area. for both units that will sleep 10, cost
is $200 a night-

Our home is not in a resort but in a safe local neighborhood with long-term professional neighbors. We have finished building new steps
down to the beach plus have added a cement bar bq- We are on a 70-foot by 90-foot lot that is fenced. ....there is a surfer beach a block away plus many, many
other beaches in the area. Hey guys-we are a beach house--not the
Ritz-Please do not expect perfection-We just had a problem with some guests who shopped around for the cheapest vacation home for what we offer in puerto rico-then they got upset that there was a power outage & sometimes low water pressure-sometimes you may not have hot water if there is no sun (solar)- -you might see a bug-you might see some dirt-this is the caribbean-things like this happens-go & pay the price at a hotel if you can't handle an occasional problem-in other words, if you are fussy, you will not like us-we are clean but not spotless-the ocean breeze brings in a lot of dirt-being on the ocean rusts & deteriorates things very quickly-when there is a big storm, water will come in some windows & a couple of vents (can't be helped-happens to most oceanfront homes) but staying on the ocean is awesome-the sound of the waves lull you to sleep-we were planning on moving to this paradise of puerto rico-there has been some construction started but has been stopped (permit problem)-we just want people to have the proper expectation of our home-

we have a no smoking policy for the comfort of our future guests-

Our home is a ten-minute drive to world-class golf, beautiful hotels, and very central to the island's many tourist attractions-
We have a 5 night minimum-we feel
that we are the best value on the island for what we offer-the $100
price is per unit & not for the entire home-if you need to sleep
10, the rate is $200 a night for the whole house-
regarding the zika situation...we were at our home for 6 weeks this winter

2017--we did not see a bug--there is strong tradewinds being blown in when you are right on the ocean--it keeps the flying bugs away nicely--I

would only be concerned if you were going into a heavy wooded area & if you could be pregnant--

also there was a mention of our bar bq--we have one but the winds are so

strong it is impossible to light a fire--just so you know......
****also there is no booking fee for you with our home******
our beach area is constantly changing--there are a lot
of rocks to cross before you get to the sand--I posted
a current photo--lots of beaches all around for you &
your family to enjoy....

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: we live in michigan & now retired -someday it would be wonderful to live in puerto rico-we really love it & the people-we spend our time with our grandchildren & our dog & cat-we are very easy to reach so feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about our property-

Why the Owner Chose Higuillar, Dorado, Dorado, Puerto Rico:
my first husband al & I had been going to dorado puerto rico for about 25 years for vacations-dorado was always our best city to stay at as it's so close to san juan without all of the congestion-we always rented a condo or apartment for a month-a friend told us about this home for sale on the ocean & we just fell in love with it-we had no idea about turning it into a vacation rental but we had to pay the bills-we could not believe how it is an 12 month destination & so many people want to go to the area-we get 3 to 5 inquiries a day-of course we have it priced very fairly & that helps-we don't want it just sitting there vacant--there is no booking fee to book our home--

The Unique Benefits at this House:
we really love our home & we are sure you will also-we also want you to have a realistic expectation of our home-it is far from perfect-when we are there we are constantly working on it-we are not for everyone..... the salt water tears a home apart-the big storms will bring water in the windows & some vents (I heard it happens to most of the homes on the ocean)-our manager is diligently working to keep the home nice-it will not be spotless (hotel clean)-that's impossible on the ocean-if you are fussy, please go to a hotel or somewhere more expensive-you will love being right on the ocean-nothing like it-our neighborhood is really special we feel-there are roosters a block away-there are horses walking around-there is an iguana in our yard sometimes-
