About the property

Private Oceanfront home w/ large beachfront patio - 3BD w/ A/C, WIFI, Hot H2O

Maria visited but did not do any structural damage to the Sea Turtle Guest House. The house is beachfront and located on the quiet, sunny, and swimable Turtle Beach in the safe and charming residential area of Mar Azul, in Hatillo, Puerto Rico. The location, views, and tropical ocean breezes are amazing. You can enjoy the sound of the crashing waves, even from inside the house. The large oceanfront patio was created as a second 'living room ' along the beach.

The house is a 3 bedroom/1 bath, which comfortably sleeps 6 people. There are 2 queen beds, and 1 full. Bath towels, beach towels and bed linens are included. There is also a fully equipped kitchen, furnished dining room, and living room w/ a large screen TV for web-streaming services and DVD player including an assortment of movies (mostly kid friendly). All bedrooms have ceiling fans and air conditioners.

The beach is great for fishing, snorkeling, sun bathing, and beach-combing. When the waves are up there are 2 advanced level surfing waves out front. There are plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance. The neighborhood and beach is very family friendly with several shallow tide pools for families to explore. The neighborhood as 2 great parks within a few blocks.

Relax watching the surf and the sunset from the porch and patio.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the local attractions and amenities. Love your sense of adventure! It was my pleasure having you as my guest. Thanks for your kind words. Since it was your first time renting in the US, I hope you will come return. While the public beaches (Parks and Recreation Department managed beaches) are only a few minutes driving, the beach across the street is also swimmable. The map posted near the dining table provides suggestions and advice for where to/not to swim. The tidepools and jetty make for a great day of exploring the nearby beach too. Plus there is lots of fishing and snorkeling from the beaches all year long, and surfing in the winter.

Ruhiges Ferienhaus, direkt am Meer mit Blick auf Palmen und Wellen; Surfen, Wellenreiten, Chillen

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zu dritt, in Verlauf einer Rundreise durch Puerto Rico, vier Tage in Renee's Haus verbracht. Es liegt in einem ruhigen Wohnviertel, auf der anderen Straßenseite beginnt der Strand. Hier ist er schmal, aber einige Meter weiter kommt man zu einem fast einsamen breiten Standstrand. Es gibt einige vorgelagerte Riffs, baden geht prima, schwimmen sollte man aufgrund der Strömung nicht unbedingt. Surfen und Wellenreiten ist hier gut möglich, aber nichts für Anfänger.

Das Haus hat drei Schlafzimmer mit Klimaanlage, ein Bad, voll ausgestattete Küche und einen Wohnbereich mit TV. WLAN und Netz stehen zur Verfügung. Es war sauber und komplett eingerichtet, Hand- und Standtücher lagen bereit. Renee war nicht vor Ort, der Kontakt lief aber absolut nett und problemlos, sie kümmerte sich schnell bei eventuellen Problemen. Die Nachbarn waren sowohl Einheimische, als auch andere Urlauber und alle sehr freundlich, wie überhaupt alle Puertorikaner. Wir fühlten uns hier sehr sicher und gut aufgehoben. Der Ort ist auch zu Fuß gut zu erreichen, es gibt einen Supermarkt, Drogerien, Restaurants und ein postoffice.

Die Wohngegend ist sauber und ordentlich, wird leicht frequentiert, das ununterbrochene, lauteste Geräusch macht das Meer mit seinem klaren Wasser und hohen Wellen. Wer das nicht mag, sollte hier nicht herfahren 😎.

Wir haben uns hier sehr wohlgefühlt und entspannt. Jederzeit würden wir wieder herkommen.

Owner's Response: Translated Renter's review to English (with the help of google-please forgive errors)- We spent four days in Renee's house during a round trip through Puerto Rico. It is located in a quiet residential area, on the other side of the road the beach begins. Here it is narrow, but a few meters further you arrive at an almost lonely wide beach. There are some upstream riffs, bathing is great, you should not swim because of the current. Surfing and surfing is possible here, but nothing for beginners. The house has three bedrooms with air conditioning, a bathroom, fully equipped kitchen and a living area with TV. WLAN and network are available. It was clean and fully furnished, hand towels and beach towels were ready. Renee was not there, but the contact was absolutely nice and easy, she quickly took care of any problems. The neighbors were both locals, as well as other holidaymakers and all very friendly, like any Puerto Rican. We felt very safe and well cared for. The place is also within walking distance, there is a supermarket, drugstore, restaurants and a postoffice. The living area is clean and tidy, is easily frequented, the uninterrupted, loudest sound makes the sea with its clear water and high waves. Who does not like this, should not go here 😎. We felt very comfortable and relaxed. At any time we would come back. *********** From Owner- The beaches can have strong tides at times. There are tide pools and inlets within a short walk for those days with stronger tides. These areas are kid friendly and great for novice swimmers. I am delighted that Eike and guests enjoyed there stay. They were lovely to communicate with. I hope they return. ********** From the Owner translated to German (google)- Von Besitzer- Die StrĂ€nde können manchmal starke Gezeiten haben. Es gibt Gezeitenpools und -einlĂ€sse innerhalb eines kurzen Wegs fĂŒr jene Tage mit stĂ€rkeren Gezeiten. Diese Bereiche sind kinderfreundlich und ideal fĂŒr AnfĂ€nger Schwimmer. Ich freue mich, dass Eike und die GĂ€ste dort zu bleiben. Sie waren schön, mit zu kommunizieren. Ich hoffe, sie kommen wieder.

Palmen und Meer

  • 4 of 5

Großzügiges, gut ausgestattetes Haus in wunderschöner und ruhiger Lage mit tollem Meerblick direkt an palmengesäumter Strandpromenade mit Sandstrand.

Vermieter war über Email gut erreichbar.

Für Leute, die mehr suchen als Erholung, ist ein Mietwagen zu empfehlen.
