To start off, the owner Jorge and his wife Ana could not have been better hosts. Jorge was very accommodating throughout the booking experience and made sure that everyone in our group had their needs met even before stepping foot in Puerto Rico. In the weeks leading up to our stay, Jorge was very helpful in planning out our week and helped set up several group excursions which made the week stress free. Throughout the week, Jorge contacted me with helpful tips and great recommendations about dining, night life, and attractions to see. Our family rents a beach house in the States and Jorge set the bar for renters everywhere. He made us feel like we had been friends for a very long time!
The house was even more incredible than the pictures show. Our group of 10 had more than enough room throughout the house. We spent most of our time in the pool area - it was an absolutely incredible space. The pool area was extremely relaxing and the surround sound stereo system added to the laid-back experience. We barbecued on the grill almost daily and could not have had a better time in the backyard. The outdoor projector made tv watching and hanging out by the pool at night a very memorable part of our trip.
The property is located in a calm and laid-back part of town, Punta las Marias. At first, we were cautious hearing about previous crime in San Juan and some of the areas in Puerto Rico. However, our group felt completely safe walking in the area during the day and even into the late hours of the night. In less than a two minute walk, we found not only a beautiful beach, but many local shops and tasty eateries. We also noticed that there was a lot of new restaurants and shops that were being opened in this happening area. We really enjoyed a new brewery a block away from the house which Jorge recommended.
Getting around town was very easy as we rented a car and used different taxi services on the island. During the week, we rode ATVs in the rainforest, spent a day in Culebra, toured Old San Juan and relaxed at the beach. It was an incredible week and our only complaint is that we wish we had more time. I plan on recommending this property to my friends and relatives and would suggest that if there are dates available for your trip, book this property. You will be sure to have an unforgettable experience.
