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.

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.

The condo was clean and ready for our stay when we arrived. Alana meet us and showed us in. The beach was perfect great for fun on the beach.

Awesome Place to Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The place is awesome. The condo is located right on the beach and every single amenity described is there and in great condition. I must say that Alana was the greatest property manager, answered her phone immediate when you text her and always available. The condo was so inviting and felt like home. The only thing I would say is (which is not related to the condo) is to be prepared to buy water, there is a drought and the water goes off at around 8pm (might have changed since I left due to rain fall.) I would recommend this condo to anyone with children and for first time visitors because it is easy to get around to places from the condo (GPS was our friend.) Thanks Alana for this great experience!!!!!!

Great location, steps away from pool, beach in view

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience with this rental. The property manager Alana was very helpful sending tips on the area ahead of time.

All the listed amenities were in good condition including TV, wifi, washer/dryer, dishwasher and AC in the bedrooms.

The pool is steps away from your back door and the palm tree lined beach is within sight. Our first night (a Sat.) there was a large family/group in the common area/pool until late at night being quite loud. So if you are looking for a quiet retreat, this might not be your best choice. The bedrooms are on the front side of the building, so it turned out ok and the rest of our nights there were less people and less noise.

We checked a bag to bring our own large toiletries, but there are grocery & drug stores nearby, so that turned out to be unnecessary.

The dining table is a round, high table that seats only 4 people, not the best for a rental that sleeps 6. We recommend a lower, larger table and adding a table on the patio.

The location is great to get to El Yunque rain forest, Fajardo for a snorkeling day trip and just a few minutes away from the Kioskos for souvenirs & food shops. We recommend shop #10 that cooks food to order - yummy piononos (plantains with various meats).

The condo complex is in need of repairs on the outside - peeling paint, etc, but there were workers on site.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. If I had known about the noisy pool party, I could have them quite down during the quite hours at the complex. Yes, we are planning to add table and chairs to the balcony. I will talk with the owner about the dining table. Alana Yes, the complex is repairing and getting ready to repaint. Please let me know when you will be returning to the island and receive a small discount as a returning guest.

Great Condo with Puerto Rican Vibe

  • 4 of 5

This was a great condo. My wife, daughter (7 months), sister had her two kids (8 & 10) loved it. Since it is on the first floor, it was extra convenient to step off the balcony and go straight to the pool. Rooms were up to date with comfortable beds and dressers and bathrooms worked well. Kitchen was well equipped with what you needed. TV was huge and worked with cable and WIFI. It was also helpful that the condo provided you with the amenities needed to head down to the beach (i.e. chairs, cooler, basket to wheel, boogy board, freesbies, etc.). We were also 10 min away from the rain forest/river where we were able to go sliding down. EL Verde BBQ was 7 miles north towards San Juan that had excellent ribs. Convenient Stores (Walgreens and Grocery) were less than 5 min away(right across the street). This is a great place where you and your family can enjoy what Puerto Rico has to offer. Beach was amazing.
