About Alana Sauer

My name is David Yarborough, I live in Greenville, SC and I own ComputerPlus Sales & Service, Inc. Puerto Rico stole a piece of my heart and I will get back as often as I can.

Alana Sauer purchased this condo in 2013

Why Alana Sauer chose Luquillo

This first floor property is truly wonderful. It's a great place to relax and enjoy a beautiful beach with incredible weather. You have the choice of lounging at the pool or sunbathing by the clear blue water of the ocean. Several restaurants are within walking distance. There's practically always an gentle ocean breeze to enjoy. Open the doors and windows and let it blow. The condo accommodates six people very comfortably and parking is just a handful of steps to the front door in the gated community. I lived in this condo for two years until my work required me to spend more time in the states. But I will be back as often as I can to enjoy all Puerto Rico has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

Some of the unique benefits of this condo are its close proximity to the rain forest (10 minutes), Old San Juan (50 minutes) Charter fishing (15 minutes) the ferry to Culebra or Veiques (15 minutes) The beautiful beach is just a few steps away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I booked this condo for his 40th Birthday and family get-a-way. We were looking for a condo that had everything just like home, especially since our 1 year old was with us. The condo furnished a portable crib and beach toys. We really enjoyed the short walk to the beautiful beach, if we were not enjoying the pool. The condo was beyond clean, decorated very tasteful and up to date with plenty of room. It was also within walking distance to downtown Luquillo and great places to eat. Owner had a fruit basket and flowers waiting for us when we arrived, along with a bulletin board of things to see and do on the island. Will definitely come back to this condo again.

Location

  • 3 of 5

We were at the property the week before Easter. It was quite with great access to the pool and Beach. The condo is right in front of the pool so you can watch the kids from the living room, kitchen or balcony. The beach is quite at night and generally full of families during the day. Luquillo does not have much going on and is right off the route 3 strip (dual parkway, 50 mile an hour ). So plenty of amenities if not that quaint.

The location for getting into El Yunke rain forest is excellent, travel to fajardo and further south east is easy for boat tours and diving. The trip from the airport is about 40-60 min depending on traffic if you take the toll road. However would definitely recommend the coastal route for a trip into the city. Old San Juan should not be missed and takes a hour to get to.

Alana is always available and responsive with a lot of local tips. The condo has everything you need and a bit more shoved in the closets. It has lost its sparkle a little and it could use a closet clean out but there is plenty of space to put your things. Kitchen is pretty well supplied and the fridge-freezer a good size. Lastly the air conditioners are dated, this did not affect use too much as the temps were reasonable but they are loud and turn on and off disturbing sleep at times.

Over all 7.5/10.

Beautiful location and property!

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the pleasure of staying in this condo for a week on a girls trip, it was extremely comfortable and well equipped. The beds were cozy comfortable and the amenities were numerous. The special touches made us feel right at home!

Alana was a pleasure to work with, very accommodating and helpful.

The pool is steps away from the patio and overlooks the beach - what an amazing view!! We enjoyed breakfast and coffee on the patio overlooking the ocean and it was breathtaking! It was a pleasure to walk just across the back yard and be settled on the beach.

Everything we needed was in the beautiful and spacious kitchen - after a short trip to the nearby grocery store we were right at home. The two bathrooms made getting ready for an evening out a breeze - even with 4 women in the condo. The condo is spacious and well laid out with plenty of storage and room for everyone to spread out.

Luquillo is a warm and friendly town with a variety of restaurants. We were able to walk or bike ride to most anything we wanted for dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, are looking forward to the next visit and can't wait to be back! Trace

Great location, comfortable condo

  • 4 of 5

We were two couples traveling together and stayed for four nights in February 2017. The kitchen was well equipped(including things like salt, pepper, sugar, coffee filters, dishwasher soap, etc.), nice bathrooms with soft towels for shower and beach use, quality sheets, comfy living area with large TV(didn't really use it though), great breezes blowing in the windows, washer/dryer worked great, BBQ (didn't use it either), and beach toys (chairs, boards, pail/shovel, cooler). The condo is not perfect but improvements are in the works...sliding doors are being replaced soon, broken microwave being replaced soon, a new A/C in the master had just been installed, etc. The property manager was incredibly helpful!! She really helped make the stay great with restaurant recommendations (BoardRiders!!) and info about the area. There is a market very close by (within walking distance) and the beach across the street was great! The pebbled surface around the pool was hard for my tender feet to walk on and the grass off of the patio/deck area was just dirt so I would recommend some sandals for going back and forth. If we were to return to PR I would definitely stay here again! Thank you:-)

Darn near perfect

  • 5 of 5

Warm weather, ocean breezes, clean beach and swimming pool, comfortable accommodations........cannot get much better. Condo was as advertised with no surprises. Microwave conked out while we were there, but was no big deal. things wear out, especially at the beach. Alana met us , gave an overview of the area, and led us to the condo. She answered all text messages promptly, and was available if we needed her, which we did not, as all went as it was supposed to go. We were two couples, and had ample space and then some. Only ate breakfast and lunch at the condo and out to several of the fine restaurants in the area for dinner, so the bar height dining table, seating only four was not a problem, as some reviews have indicated. I would have preferred a standard height table, but I was only renting the condo, not buying it. The complex was quiet with only 12 or so of the units occupied and clean as could be expected on the beach. The pool was kept clean of leaves daily. It was one of, if not the most relaxing and enjoyable vacations ever. Long walks on the clean beach, choice of pool or ocean, and often both each day, makes for a wonderful visit. The best recommendation I can give is that we reserved it for a longer period next year. You might get fancier, but you would be hard pressed to get better. If you are looking for fancy, you had best skip Luquillo altogether, but if comfortable, easy going is your thing, you have come to the right place.

Horrible we left after two hours..

  • 1 of 5

We contacted Alana thru a referral from my husbands work, I asked for a place to stay for our honeymoon that was on the beach with a pool and this was the condo she recommended. We arrived on Sunday July 3rd and I received a text message that the property manager was not available and that her mother would be meeting us to give us the keys and get us checked in. We met her at a different location than where we were originally told to meet. When we arrived we immediately we're disappointed. The gated community was not what it appears to be in the description listed on this site. There were locks to get into the main building and a security door on the condo in addition to the main door. The condo was very hot when we arrived and we were told that the air conditioning was kept at 74 degrees when not occupied. The condo is on the ground floor just steps away from the community pool and the livingroom had floor to ceiling Windows with no curtains or blinds. The people in the pool area were looking directly at us. The kitchen had shutter Windows that would not close. It was at least 90degrees and no way to keep the condo cool at all. We immediately contacted Alana's mother and she came back and said there was a work order made, however, no repairs would be made until the condo was not occupied, we told her how disappointed we were and she suggested we contact Alana directly. I immediately called her and left a voicemail asking for her to find us another place to stay that this was completely unacceptable. I also sent her a text. We waited for an hour with no response. We finally decided to pack up out belongings and drive around to find a place we could stay. We did not hear back from Alana for several hours, at that time I informed we had found somewhere else to stay and just how disappointed we were. I told her I was not going to argue with st as we were on out honeymoon. She said she would be back early the next morning and she never contacted us, I finally called her because we still had the keys and they needed to be returned. She requested that we drive to meet her, she rude and never once offered us a refund .. I have never been so disappointed with renting anything thru this site. I have stayed other places that needed small repairs or maintenance during my stay and it was taken care of immediately and professionally .. Such a huge disappointment especially for such a happy time in my life.

Owner's Response: We have had many people stay in this beachfront, poolside condo and be extremely pleased with it. We work hard to make our customers happy, as our many good reviews state. The contract these guests signed clearly stated that the manager or her agent would meet them, which is exactly what occurred. Pictures on the website are accurate and up to date. I invite guests to tour this property via the pictures to see the open concept from the kitchen and living room overlooking the pool and ocean beyond, as detailed in the description. No misrepresentation was made. We would have multiple bad reviews if the contract and pictures were amiss. Rather, we have multiple great reviews from contented and happy guests. Unfortunately, when I called and texted the guests multiple times, no responses were made, so it was not possible to help them prior to their departure without notification. Despite the damage the guests caused to the apartment by wedging blankets into the screens, which must all be replaced, I’m pleased they had a pleasant honeymoon after finding accommodations to better suit their taste. Services by Alana has been making guests happy for many years. I invite you to visit my website or to look at the more than the dozen properties I manage to see the hundreds of 4-and-5 star reviews I’ve accumulated serving guests and condo owners for over seven years. Please visit my website at www.servicesbyalana.com for complete listing of condos and reviews.
