About David

I am a very flexible and happy person. I enjoy the sea and water sports. Sailing is one of my favorites.I am at your service.

David purchased this apartment in 2000

Why David chose Fajardo

Since the first time I went to the town of Fajardo I fell in love with the place specially with Marina Lanais condo. As soon as you open the studio entrance door you can see the sea and a few islands. You can actually hear the waves.Sleeping with that sound makes you feel calm and in contact with mother nature.

What makes this apartment unique

There is so many things to do around the condominium like if I want to have dinner there is my next door neighbor El Conquistador Hotel with 18 restaurants or go to the local restaurants walking distance with a lot of sea food and local 'alcapurrias and vacalaitos fritos' with pina colada. At night I can go to starbucks in the hotel, a little salsa dancing at the hotel disco. Or I can go to the Las Croabas Lagoon in Fajardo (3 minutes walk)has 500,000 to 700,000 of bioluminescent dinoflagellates ( a plankton) per gallon, so when you wave your hand through the water you trigger so many of them that your hand lights up with a thousand tiny stars. There are many companies that offer kayak trips into the bioluminescent lagoon from the small fishing village of Las Croabas. At day the Rain forest (15 minutes drive) is a must! or the Seven Seas Beach. Is a white sand public beach located 1 mile fron the condo. The clear shallow water is teeming with vibrant tropical fish and coral reefs and is protected by offshore reefs. Trade winds blow across the water.

Is safety and is nice , you always need a key for the elevators access. The owner , David Nieves is a very plasent person. Very profesional . If you have plans to go to fajardo and have a beautiful sunny day. That's the place. Very near to the beach, water sport. Traveling to Culebras, Vieques and kajac . Relaxing and taste the local food ! Awesome!!

Relaxing Gem at an affordable price!

  • 5 of 5

First this is a beautiful location. We were a few minutes drive from the rainforest, Carabali's, and Luquillo Beach and many eateries. In walking distance is activities at the marina and a few restaurants, especially Las Vistas, which lies in a neighborhood up the street from the marina. So, when David suggests to get a rental, do so, in order to explore and enjoy Farjado in its entirety. David is responsive, very informative and honest! I really felt at home and welcomed and actually teared a little when I had to return to my home. David thank you for making my trip to PR a pleasant experience and I plan on lodging with you on my second.

Awesome Ocean balcony, nice location for east PR activities, helpful owner!

  • 4 of 5

1> Excellent location in Fajardo, close to Rainforest, Ferry Terminal. Kayaking, morning/evening walks

2> Ocean view 6th floor apt, perfect for Sunrise watching from bed. Gated community with parking. small but equipped kitchen. Owner also has another property on the Island.

3> David is very helpful and easy to reach to when needed. Met us at airport as stated and patiently waited for us.

4> Most importantly, for sight-seeing visit his recommendation list. Well worth visiting place outside San Juan and Fajardo if you have more time.
