Space 2,000 sq. ft.

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This beautiful beach house, located in an area called Brenas, is 100ft from a secluded, semi-private cove which enjoys a quarter of a mile of white sandy beach. The cove/beach is ideal for swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, paddle-boarding, jogging, or simply sunbathing. To encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities, the house rental includes (at no extra cost) , kayaks, snorkeling equipment, floaties, boogie boards, etc.. The house consists of two floors. The upper floor comprises the sleeping area and has 4 bedrooms: a Master bedroom with a king-size bed; a 2nd bedroom with a queen bed; a 3rd bedroom with a double bed; and a 4th bedroom with two bunk beds which sleeps four. There is a small balcony on the 2nd floor, great for relaxing after an active day. The lower floor is an open plan area, with a kitchen, dining room, family room, and reading area. Outside there are two tables that seat ten people, a hammock (between two palm trees), and a gas barbecue. The Terrace overlooks the Dorado Beach Hotel golf course.

Brenas has been a well-kept secret of vacation-house-rental aficionados for the past 20 years. Renters love the beauty and privacy of the cove and beach, but also know that they are only a short drive away from a wide variety of great neighborhood restaurants, and only a slightly longer drive to the nightlife of San Juan.

Excellent Experience!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and Diane was wonderful to rent from! She texted me during the week to be sure we had everything we needed during the week. She also left information for local activities to participate in during the week. The house was spacious and the patio was awesome! Pictures do not do it justice! The private beach was only steps away and so relaxing. It was also nice backing up to a golf course which made for a quiet evening experience. I would definitely rent from Diane again and stay in this home. Her hospitality was amazing and over the top and the home was beautiful and spacious!

Always Feel Like Coming Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property 3 years ago, loved it and couldn't wait to come back. With our trip days always being scheduled around Easter (busy time for the beach), we weren't able to get the house again until this year. As soon as we walked in, it felt like home again. Diane has done upgrades and improvements to the property but we still knew were to find things and if we couldn't, we had access to the answers 24/7 via text or phone.

Diane was on travel out of Puerto Rico when we got there so her good friend, Debbie, got us into the house and made sure we had everything taken care of until Diane came back. As soon as Diane got back to Puerto Rico, she was at the house checking on us and anything we might need. The house comes with first aid and basic essentials like sunscreen, bug spray, and cleaning supplies so all you have to do is go to the Amigo Supermarket when you get there, buy some groceries and you can cook or make sandwiches for a day at the beach. We had a large group so eating out wasn't an easy task but were able to make quick meals with everything provided and the grill outside.

The views are spectacular and watching the sunset over the golf course sitting on the patio was my favorite place to be in the evening. The only thing missing was the golf cart which we had 3 years ago but wasn't available this year; however, that was a courtesy provided by Diane so no fault that it wasn't there. Bikes are now available which is much healthier for us than riding around on the golf cart :)

Thanks Diane and Debbie for a relaxing and cozy atmosphere to unwind with our family in Puerto Rico and traveling from the states.

Absolutley Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week after our wedding, it was absolutely amazing. The house was the perfect place to relax after a hectic wedding weekend. The villa is so breezy and open, perfect for relaxing and hosting friends and family. The beach is right there, we didn't have to be in a rush or worry about planning, we could just walk out the door and jump right into the ocean, if we needed something the villa was just a few steps away. There is a supermarket and plenty of shops near by so its easy to get groceries or some take out. Diane is the best and made sure to help us with anything we needed, she also has the house decked out with all the beach gear you could ever need and bikes for riding around and exploring. I can't say enough about how great our stay was, Diane's villa really is a gem all you have to do is show up, unwind and enjoy.

Exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely gorgeous! We enjoyed every minute of it! The private beach was amazing, the water was warm and the beach was so clean. The house had so much space. We cooked and grilled and the doors that open up all around the house make for such and indoor/outdoor feel. It is centrally located between the caves and the rain forest and a short ride to Old San Juan. We had absolutely no complaints, everything was perfect!

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything everyone has said and more. We had plenty of space for 2 adults and 4 teenagers. The location is just right, not too far from everything, whether you are traveling east or west. And the beach was spectacular. Every time we went down (a one minute walk), we had the place to ourselves.

Diane was a lovely host. She gave us recommendations for restaurants and activities. She checked in with us by texting and answered any questions we had. Plus there are three binders with recommendations and reviews of area restaurants and activies from previous renters. That was extremely helpful. All the beach toys were great: masks and snorkels, paddle board, kayak and more for big kids and little ones along with bikes.

The kitchen is small but fully stocked with everything you need to make a great meal and there is a gas grill. There are several grocery stores nearby. Take advantage of the roadside stands for fresh mangos and pineapples. We even grilled some of the pineapple. Yum.

We had a wonderful time in Puerto Rico and this house added the extra "wow" factor I wanted for our family vacation. I would highly recommend this property and Diane to anyone looking for the perfect place to stay. We would definitely stay here again.
