My name is Barb. I am a registered nurse from Manitoba Canada. My husband Kelly and myself traveled to Puerto Rico for the first time in 2013. We quickly fell in love with the country and its people.we purchased this home for our future. Retirement, but in the meantime, we would love to share it with you!
Barb purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Barb chose Puerto Nuevo
The view from our rooftop says it all !!! Chalets de La playa has everything 2 pools, tennis, volleyball and basketball courts. A private secluded beach is just 20 seconds away from the condo. It is perfect for beach walks, beach combing and even snorkeling. 2 gorgeous swimming beaches are under 5 minutes away. It is a great place to relax away from it all.
What makes this Condo unique
Situated in the small coastal community of Puerto Nuevo Beach / Vega Baja is 25 miles from San Juan international airport and 20 miles from the Old San Juan cruise port, the central location is ideal for taking in all that Puerto Rico has to offer. It is a quieter community away from the hustle and bustle of the big city life.

Beautiful and well kept place
My family and I had a wonderful experience. The place was much nicer than expected. Everything you could possibly need was available. The rooftop as many said was our favorite place. A few things were needed to be exchanged and Edwin the caretaker immediately handled it for us. Very secure and very clean. The only thing I would change is that the beach is not a swimmable beach. But there are so many near by that to us it did not matter. Great place for families very comfortable.
The condo was everything they said. The rooftop is where we spent all our time. Great view with a grill, mini fridge and a bathroom. You never need to leave! Edwin was great and answered all our questions. Defiantly would return.
Thank you Lisa !
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in our home! The rooftop is definitely our happy place !!
Beautiful home with rooftop patio
We loved our stay. The condo was a great hopping off point for Cuyuy Caves and all the fantastic scenic north shore beaches. The condo is roomy and well furnished and the rooftop patio with grill is awesome. Edwin was so easy to work with and Barbara was kind enough to give us a late check out.
Great relaxing retreat but you will need a rental car!
First and foremost, this condo is fantastic. Plenty of room for everyone to have their own rooms and bathrooms. The roof top terrace (which has a half bath as well.....so great!) truly is a private oasis where we cooked on the grill 2 of our 5 nights in Puerto Rico and we were able to enjoy the sea breeze, sound of the waves, and the night time stars. There could be more lamps and lighting in the living room and bedrooms so that you didn't have to use the overhead lights on the ceiling fans all of the time. I wanted to read at night but there was no night stand or lamp on my side of the bed, so I couldn't. The living room couch is large, but it really needs an ottoman or table to prop your feet on when more then 2 people are seated. The kitchen could not have been stocked any better. Truly everything you could ever need was included. Barb has taken very good care of her condo and it really showed.
Now, this is not a knock on Barb's place but everyone should know that Vega Baja is very much a residential area. You will definitely need a rental car if you stay here, no ubers are available. Also, the beaches are nice, but not swimmable with all of the rocks. Because Chalet de la Playa is a residence for locals, don't think you can take a cooler to the pools. We got asked to leave even though we had no glass. One day my husband had diet coke in a solo cup (with no cooler, he just brought it from the condo) and was told within 2 seconds of entering that he had to get rid of it. For people who are vacationing and want to just relax and read by the pool, this was very disappointing.
Local spots that you will want to try to hit.....the road side restaurant right down the street from the condo. We had lunch there twice and it was amazing. Also, there is local restaurant called UP. Look for it, great atmosphere, service and food!
We would definitely recommend Barb's place, as long as you know you will be 50 min. to an hour from Old San Juan and about 45 min. to the closets ziplining establishment (Ziplining in the rain forest is even further). Puerto Rico is a great place to vacation for sure!
Our Happy Place
We had an absolutely fabulous time staying at Barb's place. She was a very helpful host who provided tons of information about the area. It was nice that she provided all of the basics (sheets, towels, hand soap, dish soap, laundry detergent, etc). The best part about the place was the rooftop area. We cooked dinner on the grill and ate every meal up there! The rest of the place was well-furnished and clean. The caretaker, Edwin, was accommodating and helpful. He responded to us throughout the week as question came up. The area around the place, Vega Baja, is a small town. However, it has great restaurants and food vendors. We felt that we had everything we needed right there. Even when we got a flat tire on the trip, we found it easy to get it repaired. There are many great beaches around the area as well. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing, quiet vacation! Julia
Comfortable, spacious, secure - everything you will need!
My husband and I traveled to Puerto Rico for our first time in February. We looked at many condo's in different areas of the island. When we came across Barb's we knew right away that is where we wanted to stay! The rooftop is what sold us for sure, and it did not disappoint!! Because it was just the two of us traveling we didn't need the 3 bedrooms. But we enjoyed the space, made it feel like home. And if we do bring our kids in the future we know exactly where we will stay! Barb was so easy to work with from the moment we booked the condo. And while there we trusted Edwin would be available for anything we would need (we never did need him, everything worked perfectly and we had everything we could ever want!) Vega Baja is a perfect location if you plan to travel the island at all, which we did. But our favorite was being pretty much the only people at the beautiful beaches (during the weekdays) right in Vega Baja! We spent every morning drinking coffee on the rooftop, when it got hot we went to the beach, and in the evening we were back to the rooftop to watch the stars. The second level deck was also very peaceful and we really enjoyed watching the iguanas in the tree. We both would recommend this condo, and Barb, 100% if you are considering staying at this beautiful location. This trip goes down as one of our all time favorites.
