My name is Arturo González I was born and raised in sunny Miami, Florida. My family is originally from Cuba and also Puerto Rico. I love to enjoy the beautiful beaches and laid back lifestyle from the islands. I am a nurse practitioner by profession and have a very stressful and demanding work life. I purchased this home in 2000 and love to use this home to unwind and embrace a peaceful setting. This is truly an oasis.

Without a doubt a true peace of paradise in the Caribbean! I truly recommend this to all that are willing to sit back and enjoy the essential things of life!
Very, very close to the beach. Great pool and patio area in the back - our favorite part of the house. We have young kids and were thankful that you could lock the door to the outdoor pool area with a key so we didn't have to worry about them being able to get out there unattended. Also a great patio upstairs where you have a view of the beach. The house is not brand new, but was very clean. Has a garage and you can park out front. There is 1 bedroom upstairs with its own bathroom. You walk through the room with bunkbeds to get to 2 more bedrooms. One of those 2 has its own bathroom and the other bathroom is off of the room with bunk beds. There is also a half bath between the garage and the pool outside. The kitchen had everything we needed to make many meals and we loved eating outside.
We did have trouble finding the house from the airport when we first arrived and weren't able to reach the owner to get help. He did email directions ahead of time and I'm not sure if my phone was working well, so I don't blame him at all, just a heads up to drop a pin at the home's location rather than putting the address in your phone if you're using it for navigation. And Google maps seemed to work better for us when we were using our phones to navigate to local attractions.
We were about 5 minutes from Walmart, gas stations, Walgreens, etc. About 1 hour from Old San Juan, 45 minutes drive from El Yunque, 35-40 minutes to Luquillo beach, and 3-5 minutes from Humacao nature reserve where you can kayak, hike or fish. And, unfortunately our trip was cancelled due to weather, but the person who does kayaking trips to monkey island with barefoot travelers lives a few houses away and the trip leaves 5 minutes from the house. Our favorite restaurant was Pura Vida, in palmas deal mar, about a 15 minute drive.
The owner was easy to work with and responded promptly to my emails.
Overall, a wonderful trip and a wonderful rental house for all 8 of us (3 couples and 2 young children).
This home was perfect for a nice relaxing week with family. We stayed with our 2 children and my brother in laws family (also two children) and my mother in law . We had more than enough room.
The outdoor space is incredible. The home is very well maintained. The pics shown are all accurate. The upstairs patio is great for sunrises (if you don't want to walk the 50 yards to the beach).
We would recommend loading up on groceries at Walmart on your way in, then using the small market about 5 min north for anything you forgot. The Nature Preserve right next store was a nice surprise
Overall a great rental home..
We booked this house for an extended family vacation. There were 5 adults; two couples, one grandparent and 3 grandkids. The bedroom accommodations were great for our needs. The kids loved having the pool and it allowed the adults to have relaxing time sitting by the side of the pool or on the patio. The owner was very easy to contact and answered all our questions about what was available at the house. He did everything possible to make sure our arrival was easy and that our stay was comfortable.
We did miss having an oven, but the convection oven and gas grill satisfied all our cooking needs. We cooked the majority of all our meals at the house. There are plenty of grocery stores in the immediate area. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, pots and pans, flatware, table service, etc. We had plenty of towels for the pool and showers.
The location is very quiet, but also very close to major shopping areas. It is easy to get to the major highways to take day trips to other attractions. We were able to take a snorkeling trip over to Vieques from a chartered boat located at Palmas Del Mar.
There were some minor maintenance problems with the upstairs shower and the hot water heater. These are only minor inconveniences and are easily overlooked as you experience the ocean at your doorstep.
Recomend this property to those who like the quiet and are willing to travel to other activities. The pictures don't do it any justice at all the home was well suited. I woke up every morning to watch the sunrise from thee terrace absolutely my favorite thing besides being so close to the beach. Love Love Love. definetly will be back to PR and will continue to rent this home for our stays. Also property was well kept and the owner is very helpful.
This was a girls trip which consisted of 5 girls and 1 young teen for a good friends birthday who chose Puerto Rico as the place to go and we were so lucky to have found this place!
We were on the phone with owner Arturo who was so friendly and patient giving us directions to the property once we were in the area and we may have screamed in this poor mans ear with excitement once we turned the corner of the street to the house when we seen the beautiful Carribean Sea right in front of us and which was literally a few steps away! Absolutely gorgeous! We entered the home which was grand, very open and spacious throughout. It is tastefully decorated with beautiful art and furnishings. Very clean and well maintained. It did not end there because we then went to the backyard with the perfect pool and beautiful landscaping. It just has the perfect setting with plenty of seating, covered patio and grill. But then it does not even end there! You go upstairs to the outside terrace and rooftop with the breathtaking views and where I began my mornings watching the beautiful sunrise. This location was a true hidden paradise and we loved it! Itvwas so nice not having to deal with crowds of people on the beach. So peaceful to enjoy and take in all the beauty around you. Being in a gated community gave us a sense of privacy and safety. The neighbors were so friendly and very inviting which was real nice and made for an more pleasant stay! We were conveniently located just minutes from grocery stores, shops, restaurants and highways. Even walking distance to a couple local friendly places to grab a quick bite. I could go on and on about this beautiful property but all I know is I will definitely be returning to Puerto Rico and will only stay here! The only very minor setback was that we were not getting very good internet connection in some areas of the house. It worked just fine outside as well as on the terrace but who wants to be surfing the web when you can be surfing the waves right outside your house! Thank you so much for making our 1st experience of Puerto Rico a very beautiful, relaxing and memorable one!
