Property description

The apartment is located in Villas de Playa I in the town of Dorado, readily accesible via expressway from the San Juan Airport. Dorado maintains the blend of a small town with all the ameinities of a large city, since it has become a bedroom community of San Juan.

The apartment is a three bedroom, three level walkup apartment, whose interior has been recently redone, next to the beach with an ocean view. The first level has the living and dining areas, a modern kitchen and a full bathroom, which is convenient since there is a sleeper sofa that converts into a queen sized bed in the living room. In addition to having air conditioning in every room, the living room/kitchen area is also air conditioned.

The second floor has two bedrooms, each with a private full bath. One of the bedrooms has a queen sized bed and faces the ocean; the other has bunk beds which sleeps three persons.Each room is air conditioned. The top floor holds the Master bedroomed,, which is also air conditioned, has a king sized bed, a full bath and a sitting area.

Among other facilities, there is a children's playground as well as two controlled access swimming pools, one of them a wading pool.

The property is next to the Embassy Suites and the Dorado del Mar Golf Club, both less than 5 minutes walking distance. From the apartment you can walk west along Sardinera beach ( beach in the Dorado Beach Hotel ) or exercise along the beach following the Rockefeller nature trail. The Dorado fishing village is next to the compound and you can buy fresh fish directly from the fishermen as they return from the sea around noon each day.

There are several fine restaurants in the area, including the award winning El Ladrillo, which is also an art gallery, as well as other delicious seafood restaurants next to the Dorado beach. If you are into trying typical Puerto Rican fritters, there are also kiosks along the beach to enjoy them.

You are close to three of the most visited tourist locations in Puerto Rico: the Bacardi Rum distillery, the Camuy caves and the Arecibo radiotelescope. The first is located to the east, reachable following route 165, which runs next to the ocean. The other two are to the west, near the town of Lares.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I am retired chemical engineer. My wife's name is Cristy. We live in the near-by town of Guaynabo,but we come to the area frequently , normally every week-end since we own another unit.We are basically available all the time to answer questions.

Why the Owner Chose Dorado:
We first bought in 2002 because of the proximity of Dorado to San Juan, so it only takes us 25 minutes to get home. At the same time, we were looking for a beach house directly on the beach, where you could walk and not have to take a car to the beach. We had several friends who also owned villas here, we had visited many times and knew of the well-kept grounds and peacefullness of the site.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
When we first bought the apartmnent, I was stil working and this place provided the ideal site for decompressing during week-ends. Once we are here, we normally walk on the beach or along the golf courses, which provides a very enjoyable execise time.I enjoy listening to the sound of the waves as they reach the beach and read a book. We enjoy the beach and I have learned to cook for family and friends during the week end.
