Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience renting this condo. Ignacio was very easy to work with and very thorough. He sent directions and suggestions of things to do and places to eat. The condo was very nice and we loved that the patio led right out to the pool. The grounds are well secured and nicely maintained. There is a lot to do in the area and our three children absolutely loved this vacation! We will definitely rent again from

Ignacio next time we travel to Puerto Rico.

Beautiful location ten minutes from the rain forest and right on a beautiful almost private beach.

  • 4 of 5

Ignacio was a wonderful host with communication and ease of set up before and during our stay at the apartment. The pool water is warm and clean. The complex appears to be very quiet during the week which is a wonderful thing. Many days we had the pool to ourselves with the kids. At the most one other family joined. The kitchen is well stocked, the apartment is clean, and the walk out to the pool is really nice. Only one adjustment we would wish for if we were to stay again: the individual a/c units have a musty smell that affects the home. We were staying right next to the humid rain forest of course which has to play into that. But either a really thorough cleaning with clorox or replaced a/c units might be needed to address the issue. Again, Ignacio was fantastic including great recommendations on what to do. My kids want to move to Puerto Rico now, and if my wife and I had a way, we might agree. Go to La Mina Falls, enjoy the beach right off the condo, take a trip to culebra, visit the bio bay, eat at the Luquillo kiosks, explore the pork highway on Sunday, walk through old San Juan and get a gourmet popsicle, get Sabao bread at the family bakery... you'll enjoy every minute of your trip to Puerto Rico.

Owner's Response: Thank for your comments. I am glad your family enjoyed our island. The apartment is locked when not in use and sometimes, if there is a lot of humidity due to rain, it might need a little ventilation. The a/c units in the bedrooms have less than 2 years. Nevertheless will check them. Thanks again, and please come back!

Excellent. Great place.

  • 5 of 5

We were really happy to open the door to the apartment and see that it lived up to the photos. It was in a gated community on a quiet dead end street, but 5 minute from Route 3. The apartment is clean, comfortable, spacious enough (we are a family of four) and opened right onto a pool and a 5 minute walk to a beautiful beach, both of which were almost empty. The pool seems to be 20 meters, long enough to do laps. The beach has waves which my kids had a blast playing in with boogie boards, supplied by the owner. We never met the owner, but he was easily reachable by text and telephone, and checked in during our visit. House is away from crowds, but well situated for a visit to San Juan, El Junque, the Kiosks in Luquillo, and Luquillo Beach (Balinearo Monserrate) and the Bio Kayak tour if you choose to do that. No complaints.

Perfect Paradise

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the location of Bosque de Mar is perfect. Secluded yet a close drive to everything (including shopping, restaurants and attractions. San Juan, El Yunque, Fajardo, Luquillo, are all close) The condo itself was clean and spacious enough for our family of 5. It had everything we could need and then some...full kitchen, washer/dryer, 2 full baths, beach chairs, boogey boards, kayaks, beach toys, grill, etc. We loved that the pool was steps away so the kids could swim while we watched from the patio. The beach was a super short walk through the complex. Through the gate was a tropical paradise. Huge stretch of golden sand lined by palm trees and brilliant blue, warm water. The sand was perfect to build castles with plus lots of beautiful shells to find. The water was so shallow you could walk out a long ways and still be standing. The waves perfect to boogey board in. Most of the time, we were the only people on the beach (and at the pool too). During the weekend, when it was busier, we encountered maybe 20 other people along the miles of beach. While we could have spent the whole week just on the beach or by the pool, we did explore the island many days. We hiked to the waterfalls and lookout towers in El Yunque, explored the fortresses in Old San Juan, toured the Caverns at Camuy, and kayaked to Laguna Grande bio bay in Fajardo.

Ignacio was great to work with. He responded quickly to any questions. Gave great recommendations on things to do, places to eat, etc. He checked in with us to make sure we arrived and all was going well. This was our first time renting off VRBO and we were a little leary of what we would encounter when we got to PR. We are so happy we took the chance! I would gladly recommend this property to anyone and am hoping we will be able to return again someday.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful condo in a picture perfect spot! The beach in front was lovely- a tropical paradise... with sand dollars! The condo was well equipped with lots of beach equipment- towels, toys, beach chairs, snorkeling things, and even a wagon to help take it all down to the beach- just steps away! It is a short drive to San Juan and Fajardo where we took a snorkeling trip from and went to the bio bay. The area is right across from the rain forest which was also great. Everything was clean and well taken care and the owner left lots of helpful info. We would highly recommend this lovely spot for your vacation- we had a great time and can't wait to come back!

Relax in the Sun!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for spring break trip. The location was perfect, the condo immaculate, pool 10 steps from the patio and the ocean just a few more steps away.

The rain forest was across the street. We visited twice and hiked to the falls and to MT Britton. We kayaked to the bioluminescent bay and went on a mini boat snorkeling trip. It was beautiful and only 30 minutes away. We also spent a day in old San Juan, a must for a first visit to PR.

Thank you Ignacio for your recommendations and for renting your condo to us.
