SUNNY, SECLUDED GETAWAY

Guanica Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms - 1 Bath - (Sleeps 7)

Located on the tranquil peninsula of San Jacinto, just outside of Guanica, 'Casa Alejada' (Faraway House) is the perfect place to get away from the rigors of modern life. If you enjoy serene vistas, quiet beaches, and nature's beauty then Casa Alejada is the place for you.

Nestled between Guanica Forest and the Caribbean, Casa Alejada offers a tremendous variety of outdoor activities just a few steps away. If long hikes, bird watching, and exotic wildlife interest you, then check out Guanica Forest a UNESCO International Biosphere Reserve.

The forest is home to over 100 species of birds (many of them endemic) and over 700 species of flora and fauna. If long quiet days spent on the beach are more your speed, you will absolutely love the unpopulated beaches of Caña Gorda, Ballena, and Tamarindo.

Tired of sitting on the beach? Go for a swim in the warm placid waters, or try snorkeling amongst mangrove roots and coral reefs. Feeling adventurous? The Ferry to Guiligan's Island is a short walk away. You could even take a scuba diving trip from one of the local guides or try your hand at windsurfing.

Now for the most important of nature's attractions in San Jacinto... Sunshine and Lots of it! Because of its location in the rain shadow of Puerto Rico's Central Range, San Jacinto enjoys a dry and sunny climate almost the whole year around. Combine this with gentle tropical breezes and you will quickly forget about the hustle and bustle you left behind.

JUNE VISITOR

  • 1 of 5
I’m not sure when was the last time you were at your place, but I wanted to give you an update on the
Condition of your unit:

-the dresser and night stand drawers had not been wiped down. They were sandy/gritty.
-no light bulb in bedside lamp
-no pillow or sheets for the mattress pad for the 8th person’s bed
-extra comforters smelled old and moldy
-no batteries in remote
-TV had no signal-when got a picture, it had 3 vertical lines going through it
.-gas grill propane tank almost empty
-doors creaked loudly and needed WD-40
-no washcloths for anyone or hand towels
-no bath mat
-no extra sheets for any bed
-cushions and pillows on couch and chairs moldy and dirty
-knobs missing on closet doors
-knob missing on stove
-moldy lamp shades
-rusted lamp shade broke and off base
-moldy curtains
-legs falling off furniture in living room
-cutting board was disgusting
-kitchen faucet handle was broke
-screens need repair work
-refrigerator did not keep things cold i.e. milk had condensation on it and ice cream was soft!
-and last, but not least, oven did not work!

Also, all window cranks were rusty, detached and/or inoperable.

The cleanliness of the unit upon arrival was less than adequate. Furniture had not been moved and floors swept and mopped appropriately. There were screws on the floors.
I own a condo in Ormond Beach, Florida and it is spotless and everything is in perfect working order.
I have included some pictures since as the saying goes “a picture is worth a thousand words.”
This condition may be acceptable to the locals, but it is substandard to most tourist.
It would be difficult for me to recommend this place to anyone I know.

OUR GREAT EXPERIENCE @ CASA ALEJEDA- WOULD DEFINATELY RECOMMEND.

  • 5 of 5
I WILL START TO SAY, OUR FAMILY OF FIVE, HAD SUCH GREAT ACCOMMODATIONS, CLEAN SHEETS & TOWELS ON THE 3RD FLOOR - 3 BEDROOM APARTMENT, THOUGH COZY, NOT AS CUTE AT THE PICTURE, BUT NICE AND CLEAN WITH ONE SMALL TV, NO ALARM NEEDED AS THE ROOSTERS WILL WAKE YOU UP. THE CONVENIENCE OF COIN WASHER/DRYER WAS VERY HELPFUL. THE LOCALS WERE VERY FRIENDLY. GREAT TIME GOING TO THE LOCAL BEACHES, A FIVE MINUTE DRIVE.. WE HAVE FAMILY IN GUANICA, SO WE WERE FAMILIAR WITH THE AREA. WE LOVED IT, WILL DEFINITELY COME BACK ON A YEARLY BASIS AND HOPE TO RENT THE ENTIRE 3 APARTMENTS. THE OWNERS ALWAYS COMMUNICATED VIA EMAIL AND CALLED WHEN WE NEEDED THEM, EVEN THOUGH MY VERIZON CELL PHONE DID NOT COOPERATE, AS I GOT MESSAGES ONE DAY LATER. SO MANY THINGS TO DO IN PUERTO RICO AND WILL NEED TO STAY LONGER NEXT TIME. THE OWNERS GAVE US MAPS AND PLACES OF INTEREST IN THE AREA, VERY HELPFUL TO NEW PEOPLE VISITING GUANICA. SO THIS WAS NOT THE HILTON, BUT CLEAN AND AFFORDABLE. CAUTION: VERY WHINY ROAD TO GET TO THE RENTAL. ALL GOOD.

CASA ALEJADA STAY

  • 2 of 5
We just came home from Gaunica. We rented all three apartments of Casa Alejada. The owners were super cooperative and gave us a great rate for renting all the apartments for a week. We were able to sleep 17 people who came to the area for our daughter's wedding in Ponce. Owners were also very good at letting us stay a day or so longer, to accomodate everyone's departure dates. Their new decking, for the bottom apartment was beautiful & a great place to hang out. There were local caretakers that were responsive to our calls. They both spoke English & came as needed. That being said, the apartments are a little "tired." They once may have been painted white but have since been done in various colors, including some of the furnishings. Many remotes/switches didn't work. One fan was too noisy to even use. There was a water leak, in the bottom apartment's bathroom that ran the whole time we were there. Caretakers couldn't seem to find the scource. Other than the good double beds, others were singles and with thin mattresses. Linens were sparse; TVs small & furnishing, especially couches in 2 aprt., small & thin. And, you had better not mind being awaken by roosters. They run all over & start crowing early. It was a pain to have to come up with $2.50 in quarters to wash & dry any load of laundry.Overall, we would rent again becuase of the price & cooperative owners but just want everyone to be aware of the shortfalls. This isn't luxury but it is convenient & economical.

AN OVERDUE REVIEW OF A WONDERFUL PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
The Walkers (property owners) were so flexible and helpful in arranging for our stay. We communicated via e-mail numerous times and each reply was cordial, courteous, and friendly. They truly want you to experience what they do in their "faraway house"!

What can we say about the property...to us it exceeded the photos and description. My wife and I were looking for a quiet getaway that would renew our energy - and this is exactly what we found! This was our second trip to Puerto Rico. We thought that, perhaps, we would want to explore the southern coast since we stayed in Arecibo our first visit. But once at Casa Alejada we found ourselves wanting to spend as much time as possible simply enjoying the apartment and surroundings.

If you stay here and explore the southern coast area we would recommend "Cuesta Blanca" restaurant in Boqueron. The seafood is so fresh that the owners invite you into the kitchen to select which fish you want cooked for your dinner!!!

I could spend an hour regaling you with the enjoyment we found in our 8 days in Guanica while staying at Casa Alejada - suffice to say you won't be disappointed!

WE LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is really nice and we loved the view and location. Is near to the beach but the apartment is in a secluded area for privacy. We can't wait to go back.

BEAUTIFUL HOUSE NEAR PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
This was the best deal ever! Honestly a very comfortable, clean and beautiful apt. in a private house. Perfectly on top of a Hill overlooking the mountains, and the beach. You have to be there to inhale and exhale the great and clean environment of the south west area of Puerto Rico. If you're tired of the loud city and overpopulation come here and recharge your batteries in this lovely place. The apt was equiped well with clean linens and all utensils for your needs. I highly recommend it...it was safe & quiet ...oohh so very romantic if you stay with a loved one.
