About the Property
Spacious Private Vacation House - Stay Like a Local, Explore Like a Tourist!
The property is close to El Yunque National Forest, Luquillo (Monserrate) Beach (one of the best beaches on the island), Hacienda Allegre, 20 miles to San Juan, and 20 minutes to Fajardo for ferries to Culebra & Vieques.
Bedrooms: NO BUNK BEDS!
King bed in master suite with walk-in closet and separate bathroom with large shower. The second Bedroom offers a queen bed and a twin bed, and third Bedroom offers a queen bed, with a second Bathroom just next door. A Pack N Play is also available for a traveling baby. Plenty of linens and towels provided.
The house has accommodated many gatherings with friends and family sharing in the food preparation in the open kitchen with large island, with many guests gravitating to the large patio, or the open two stall garage in rainy weather. Open floor plan and spacious rooms are located on one level, making it easy for elderly or toddlers to get around (no steps).
If you want to stay where you have all the amenities of home, yet are near many attractions the island has to offer, please consider reserving this home for your next vacation. The property has ceiling fans and air conditioners in each bedroom and in living room, cable tv with HBO & Starz, smart tv in master and guest room #1, flat screen and dvd in third bedroom, and wi-fi throughout.

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: Hector grew up in the center of the island (Orocovis) and moved to Michigan in the 70's. Each vacation opportunity, we would return to the island to stay with family. In 2001, we had an opportunity to purchase a piece of land close to a niece's house that we always ended up staying with on vacation because of her great location to everything (and her great Puerto Rican cooking!). When Hector retired in 2010, he returned to his homeland to supervise the construction of this vacation home.
Why the Owner Chose Jiménez, Río Grande, Puerto Rico:
We chose this location because it is in close proximity to all the attractions and amenities of the big city of San Juan, the kid-friendly beach in Luquillo, and the ferries in Fajardo to neighboring islands Culebra and Vieques. We enjoy the privacy of the home and its surrounding tropical fruit, flowers, rocks, and palms. We are hybrid Tourists and Locals -- we want to see everything the island has to offer, but we don't want to pay the high costs associated with being a tourist, and we know THERE IS SO MUCH MORE TO THE ISLAND THAN SAN JUAN!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The location of this home allows you to vacation comfortably with all the amenities of home. It is close enough to San Juan for an easy road trip, very close to Luquillo Beach, one of the best beaches on the island, and very close to the El Yunque National Forest. Move in for your vacation ... the house allows you to just relax, cook meals if you want, and spend quality time together. Excellent restaurants are in close proximity and there is a book in the home with recommendations, but feel free to ask us too! If you have questions about the property, location, or the island in general, please feel free to contact us by telephone, text, or email.
