About Monica Echaves

My name is Monica and I'm a California native. I am a second grade teacher on an army base. I am a GRCA hobby breeder (golden retrievers). Forced to relocate to San Juan, I decided to rent out my dream home! My husband Milito and I maintain the property ourselves. We are a true Vacation Rental by OWNERS. No rental managers! Please come visit us and see if this home passes your expectations!

Monica Echaves purchased this house in 2001

Why Monica Echaves chose Ceiba

I came to PR 17 years ago as a DOD elementary school teacher. I worked at Roosevelt Roads Naval station which closed due to politcal controversy. Relocated to San Juan area, I converted my brand new dream home into a vacation rental. I hope others love and enjoy the time that I am unable to spend there. This home offers peace, tranquility, harmony with nature and spectaular ocean views.

Private and Secluded

  • 5 of 5
I was a little worried booking online and had read all the precious reviews which helped put me at ease with my decision on renting this property.... Well let me just tell you how amazing this home is. The pictures don't do any justice to this house. Endless views of 3 neighboring beaches, private home and you feel like your at a luxurious resort. My family did not want to leave at the end of the week. Monica, the owner was very nice and attentive and always replied promptly to my emails. We will definitely take into consideration this home next time we visit "la Isla del Encanto."

Panoramic breathtaking view

  • 5 of 5
To start, Monica is a Wonderful host! Her house is amazing! We stayed Nov 2-8. There were 3 of us couples,plus my 2 daughters ages 8 & 10. We rented the upstairs of her house. It was so spacious! We never felt crowded,unlike hotel rooms on a resort where you feel claustrophic from being in the tiny room to long. The view from the balcony was Absolutely breathtaking, you just Couldn't get Enough of it. Id say all our time @ The house was spent sitting on The balcony. There is also a super cute & friendly property kitten That just loves to relax With you on The porch. I dont know That You Could get a more trustworthy Property owner than Monica. She was always quick to respond to questions i had or tell us about interesting Things happening on The island while we were There. When we were there it did rain a little each day up in The mountains Where the House is located, making it a little to cool for us to want to swim in the beautiful pool, but her house is such a quick drive to beaches or nearest town, we were never lacking in Things to do. We toured the old Navy base while There & got to see Them filming the newest pirates of the carribean movie. We also got to Take pics of the black pearl & 2 other ships Being used in The movie. Another day we got on a ferry @ Fajardo & traveled over to Culebra Island (Flamenco beach is located hete & rated as one of The top 10 beaches in The world!) We also toured El youque natinal rainforest & hiked in to take a dip in La Mina Falls(highly recommend). Another day we started out to travel the coastline. We made it down to Ponce & toured Museo Castillo Serralles before heading back towards Old San Juan where we ate supper Before heading on back to The house. The house is perfectly located, so easy to get to but far Enough out That it feels private & away from town traffic. I would recommend getting a suv rental versus a small economy car. There are some potholes That could do serious damage to a small car & also When the mountain roads get wet, it can be a little tricky getting into Monicas steep driveway. Back to The house, The Kitchen was well Stocked With utensils. We Going Everything we needed For cooking @ home. Food is a little pricey on The island, so make sure you alot plenty of cash for groceries. We also found out That most nice sitdown restaraunts dont open till 5, so unless you want to eat fried food from kiosk vendors Everyday, stock up on groceries for The house. Ralphs is a really nice grocery store!

The Perfect Spring Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I chose Monica's home to spend time with our two college aged kids for spring break. It was the perfect place! The view from the home is outstanding. Expect a steep drive to the home (for those who are not used to driving in foothills/mountains) but not bad and so worth it! The pool is resort quality and Monica provides all the comforts of home. It was so nice to get away from the spring break crowds.
When you can pull yourself away from the home, you are close to the El Yunque rainforest which is definitely worth visiting. There are a number snorkeling, scuba and sailing excursion providers and the marina's are a short drive away from the home. There are nearby beaches and we had no problem driving/parking.
Monica provided top-notch service, quickly responding to all my emails. I thank her for allowing us to stay in her home. It was difficult to leave!

YOU WANT THIS PLACE!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just got back from our second trip to this WONDERFUL hideaway!! Off the beaten path but convenient to everything- especially beautiful beaches and El Yunque Rainforest! Safe, clean and REALLY SPECIAL FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY!! We appreciate this beautiful find and all the recent upgrades. The owners treat this like a real HOME and welcome you into in with quality kitchen appliances, wonderful sheets and towels. Most important is the patio and pool! A wonderful home for all ages.

Monica's house was far more better than what I expected. The pictures just don't do it justice. My daughter and I rented the bottom floor. The place was clean, plenty of towels provided, bedding, etc. The patio and pool area were spectacular. The views from the property are excellent. We would sit at the end of the pool and just look at the sea.

I forgot to mention the coqui frogs. There are plenty on the property, but you have to look closely to find them. There is a bakery in Ceiba just a few miles away off PR3 that was very good.

I can't wait to come back.

Thank you so much Monica.

My family and I decided to take a vacation to PR and were very fortunate to stay in Monica’s house. We rented the 2nd floor to accommodate a total of 9 people. The kitchen was beautiful, huge, clean and supplied with all sorts of kitchen utensils. The bedrooms were well decorated and the beds were very comfortable. The pool and hot tub were awesome. The waterfall and night lights added pizazz to the outdoor paradise. The downstairs patio was spectacular and ready for some good grilling. Monica also has plenty of beach-towels, clean sheets, washer and dryer and lots of good movies to watch. Overall pictures don’t do justice to this house. Regardless of what room you’re in the view is breathtaking.
