This Malibu beachfront property was great for our week stay in Puerto Rico. Villa description and pictures are exactly how the apartment itself is laid out; very clean and well furnished. I think what really made the difference during our vacation, though the apartment itself and all the amenities were great, was in fact the owner Carlos and his wife. Their friendliness and hospitality were great! His wife met us at our car rental place and even drove part of our party and luggage in her car for us. She drove us around town through areas she knew we would be interested in, and was so helpful when we asked her for recommendations for places to see and eat; she even told us about the hot spot club in San Juan for us to check out. Throughout our stay Carlos and his wife were available for any questions we had or that would arise, and he was even kind enough to escort part of our group to the airport for our departure.
The location of this villa works perfect for those trying to get the most out of their vacation. We wanted to make sure to visit El Yunque and Culebra and Vieques islands, as well as San Juan and Old San Juan so this villa is in a great location that allowed us to do it all. Renting a car is a must of course, but definitely worth it because you get the most out of the trip.
It was convenient to have the kitchen and refrigerator in the apartment because it allowed us to save some money on lunches if we so chose. We bought a few meals to hold us over, while still enjoyed plenty of nights out on the town and authentic Puerto Rican cuisine.
The villa is definitely out of the real populated city life, so to get to a Walmart or bigger store it is about a 15 min drive but it was also nice to get the quiet feel of rural Loiza. Many nice beaches near by and it was a plus to have snorkeling equipment available for us to borrow at the villa. The villa has a very private, quiet feel to it. It wasn't until the last few nights of our stay that neighbors actually began to show up so there was no worry of loud neighbors or inconveniences. Whether you have a young group, older group, or traveling as a family, if you are trying to get the most out of your vacation and potentially cover the most ground, this villa is great! Relaxing, convenient, and most of all affordable!
