About Jeff Rekett

I'm a Chicago native working in the health care field. My family and I enjoy traveling to warm climates, especially when the long cold winter has taken its toll on us. Puerto Rico captured our attention a few years back and we decided to purchase a vacation home on the island. We have thoroughly loved making our home warm and comfortable for our own enjoyment and that of our guests. For us, Aquatika is a place to relax and rejuvenate and to get to know another culture.

Jeff Rekett purchased this condo in 2007

Why Jeff Rekett chose Loiza

Aquatika provides the feeling of a fine hotel property but with the comfort of condominium living. Warm crystal clear pools, ocean and beach access, basketball, tennis, volleyball, soccer and mini golf all on site provide hours and hours of fun for everyone. Located just 30 minutes east of the airport and accessible by highway or scenic route, Aquatika is in a prime location to venture out and explore many of the island's attractions.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy morning strolls around the complex enjoying all of the beautiful flowers and plants, encountering the occasional iguana along our way. The beautiful Atlantic ocean is a short walk down the walking path from our unit and whether we want to take a swim or simply take in the view, it's great having it so close. A hop in the car and a short drive away we find everything we need, from grocery stores to restaurants, to fine shopping. The main tourist areas and attractions are not far either. Our unit is one of the penthouses, the largest unit available at Aquatika. Besides offering two floors of expanded indoor space, our unit features a very large outside terrace. The terrace is partially covered, allowing this space to be enjoyed throughout the day, even under the hot afternoon sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jeff! We had a wonderful time staying in your condo. JC was waiting for us at the car rental and we followed him to a grocery store to get some supplies. We went to Costco and Walmart the next day as the selection was better and alot cheaper. The condo was just as it appeared in your listing. We all felt at home instantly. JC showed us around and we had him draw a name for which couple got the on-suite. Thanks JC for picking our name! We had no problem sharing the bathrooms between six people and having the extra half bath came in handy. The furnishings were very comfortable and we ate our meals up on the covered lanai. We ate all our breakfasts in and alot of our evening meals too. Deb is a wonderful cook and she wished you would have had a BBQ on the Lanai. The guys did walk down to BBQ at the charcoal ones a couple of times. We crammed alot of sightseeing into the 2 weeks we were there. Putting on about 1000 miles on the rental car. The condo is in a perfect location to see alot of the sights. Near the rainforest, Luquillo beach (which became our favorite), the food kiosks in Luquillo and Pinones, Fajardo (both Seven Seas Beach and the Bio Bay) and San Juan. Having the printed out directions to Old San Juan parking that you included in your welcome packet was a lifesaver. A co worker of ours has a sister who lives here and she and her husband took us on a scenic drive along the southern coast and then up into Guavate mountains to Cayey to eat alot of Puerto Rican food. What a day to remember! We also went to the Arecibo Observatory and a coffee plantation one day and zip lining another. So much to see on this beautiful island! The grounds around the condo are beautiful and very well maintained. The few times we used the pools we had them mostly to ourselves. A short walk to the beach which we did spend an afternoon there. The area outside the condo grounds was a little run down but didn't keep us from walking into town to a restaurant. The roosters and barking dogs at night took some getting used too, but wouldn't stop us from coming back to stay here. We all thought 2 weeks was going to be enough time to see everything but found another week would have been perfect. We would definitely recommend your condo to others and we hope to come back and stay again. Thank you again for sharing your beautiful home with all of us! P.S. Thanks again for being able to switch one of our weeks when we found that work conflicted with it.

Hi Jeff,

I just wanted to send a quick note to tell you what a nice time we had on our vacation trip to Puerto Rico. We have stayed in a few different condos before, but yours was one of the best. Aquatika was very fun for all of us, especially our three kids. Thanks for being so easy to work with. Everything you told us about your place turned out to be true. Your property manager was a nice guy and very helpful. We'd like to return again some time.

Thanks,

Charles and Maggie E.

Great vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Aquatika was a wonderful getaway during our cold Chicago winter! Puerto Rico weather is pretty reliable and the 82 degree averages are very accurate. There were seven in our group and Jeff's condo was plenty of space for us. The upstairs deck was used quite often for our card games outdoors and the hammock was occupied very frequently! The condo is fairly well maintained, although one kitchen chair was unusable and the kitchen air conditioner will need replacing soon. The fridge was brand new as was the full size washer and dryer. The large 2 story windows along the one wall really gave the place a bright, lovely feel. The condo was spotless when we arrived and Jeff had several handy supplies available which we normally don't get in a rental (nice beach towels, dishwasher soap, laundry soap, hand soap, spices in the cabinet, coffee filters, sponges, pool floaties, basketball, football, soccer ball), so that was a pleasant surprise.We loved all the pool choices but were somewhat disappointed that the lazy river did not have the jets running all week. Neither did the hot tubs and the slide. But everything else was maintained nicely (pool water and landscaping). The beach was a pretty small space and because of the weather this time of year (January), lots of seaweed was washing in. However, we used the public beach access close by (by car) to swim in the ocean a couple of days. The rain forest was a great day trip for some hiking and hanging out in a waterfall! Old San Juan is a must see, with all the Spanish inspired buildings, shopping, and the old fort. JC was also very helpful when he picked us up and got us settled in the unit. Overall, we were very pleased with our trip and would come back again.

Owner's Response: Betsy, thank you very much for your valuable feedback. We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay and would return. You provide a great distinction for future guests and one that is perhaps not highlighted enough by us or other property owners. Although Aquatika features many of the amenities found at the nicest hotel resort properties, it is not a resort. It is a condominium complex and some of the amenities, like the water slide, are operational only at certain times. That said, you can always enjoy the pools, beach, basketball, tennis, volleyball, soccer and mini-golf from sun up to sun down. We have been happily renting for almost 8 years now, and as you noted, we have been attentive to replacing items in the condo as necessary, including a brand new refrigerator, washer and dryer, and several of the air conditioners. The items you mentioned are slated for replacement soon and will help us to ensure that we continue to offer our guests top-notch accommodations. J.C. and his housekeeping staff will be pleased to hear that you found the unit spotless upon your arrival, something we strive for with each and every rental. Once again, thank you so much for staying with us. We truly hope you enjoyed your stay and please come back again soon. Cordially, Jeff

OUTSTANDING STAY--HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our daughter's senior trip and we stayed at Aquatika. We all loved Puerto Rico! Starting with J.C. (Juan Carlos), who was a great help and source of local information. He met us at the airport and we followed him in our rental car to the grocery store and then to Loiza. He showed us around and gave us many suggestions about where to eat and what to do. We also got many helpful ideas from the packet that the owner Jeff gave us plus the notebook that previous guests had filled out more helpful information. Aquatika is beautiful and quiet--at least quiet during the week days. Seems to be a bit more hopping on the weekends as many of the local PR folks come here to Aquatika on the weekends. But with all the pools and the beach front it was never too crowded. We ventured out to the rain forest--which we all loved--catamaran/snorkeling in Fajardo--which was totally awesome, and many other daily excursions. We also spent a few days just hanging out in the condo. It was really nice having separate bedrooms for the kids so we didn't have to be together all the time like you do at a hotel/resort room. We enjoyed the second floor tv room, and going outside on the balcony and either catching some sun, or napping in the hammock:)

Overall it was a wonderful trip and we would highly recommend renting this condo in Aquatika. The owner Jeff and JC his local guide are great and made the whole trip a pleasure!!

Thanks again J.C., Jeff, and to all the great locals that we met on the most awesome vacation yet.

Owner's Response: Peter, so glad to hear that you and your family had a memorable time in Puerto Rico and at Aquatika. It was our pleasure to have you as our guests and hope that when your travels bring you back to Puerto Rico that we'll have that pleasure again. Thanks, Jeff

We had a fabulous time staying at Aquatika. Jeff was easy to work with and obviously takes great pride in maintaining his condo. JC was so friendly and accomodating. JC met us at the airport car rental and then let us stop to pick up a few groceries to get started. He was only a phone call away if we needed anything through the week. The accomodations were excellent and very clean. There were 7 of us traveling together and there was plently of room for everyone. The grounds/beach were beautifully maintained and clean. We took many day trips--rain forest, Old San Juan, Barcardi Factory, Luquillo Beach--enjoyed it all. Thanks to Jeff and JC for helping making this a most enjoyable vacation!

A really great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We travel a lot with business and that is why we came to Puerto Rico. We prefer to stay in a condo and this was a really great place. You are always a little uneasy if you have never been to a place but I must say that this was handled in a most excellent way that made the trip so easy. Jeff always got back with us right away and sent us a great welcome package with all the information we could need. JC is wonderful, he met us at the car rental place, took us to a grocery store and then to the condo. He made arriving and getting to the condo stress free. The place was everything it was descripted to be. The complex is beautiful and what fun for kids with the pools and beach. Aquatika is beautifully landscaped and it is a gated community. Jeff's condo was clean and well-maintained. One of our requirements was internet access for business and we had no problem there. I especially enjoyed the terrace as it has a very nice covered area to enjoy the wonderful breeze as you eat or rest in the hammock. I would recommend this property highly and hope that it is available if we need to return. The only thing to consider is that it is on the third floor(penthouse) and there is no elevator, however we are older and did not have a problem with the stairs.

Thank you Jeff and JC for a really great trip.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Pam and Philip, for your kind feedback. We don't have many business travelers stay with us, so I am glad to hear that we met your undoubtedly high standards for accommodations. We're also glad that we delivered good service from booking to checkout. If business or pleasure bring you back to Puerto Rico, please come back and stay again. Jeff

Wonderful time!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Aquatika. Jeff was great to correspond with prior to our trip, answering all of our questions. Everything that was advertised or shown on the webpages we viewed, was what we received when we arrived to PR. Also, JC was great!! He contacted us at the airport and brought us to a grocery store and took us on a scenic route to our condo. I must add that I did get a little lost trying to find him at the airport. I think I drove away from the airport a little prematurely. I thought I was following him, which turned out not to be him. I pulled over at a Burger King, which he promptly drove to save us. Thanks JC!!! Once at the condo, we received a thorough orientation of not only the condo and the grounds, but also where to go in PR for touring. We never needed anything further from JC during our stay, but he did contact me to see how things were going and if I needed anything. I was really impressed with that!!!

The condo has everything one needs. We like to cook in to save $$. We did some BBQ by the beach, as well as eating on the wonderful terrace on the roof. The amenities at the resort were just what we were looking for. The pools were great for our 14 month old. She really enjoyed the lazy river, as did I. There are great play areas that our daughter utilized quite often. The resort is massive and for me that was great. I like to run in the mornings and there were plenty of paths for me to get a good run in every morning, without getting bored. The landscaping is truly breathtaking. All of the flowers and plants throughout are just impressive.

The people there are great. The weekend is when the locals come in to enjoy some R&R. We met some of the locals and others vacationing from the US. We really like learning about others and their lifestyles and everyone was great to visit with.

The beach is very private, which we loved. My daughter played in the sand, which was a new experience for her. She loved it. It is great for a little walk and superb for swimming.

Walmart and Ralph's are easy to get to for groceries that one may need. The drive to Ralph's has some pretty neat scenery on the way. Also, there are little minimarts for those little items if needed, within minutes of the resort.

Thank you, Jeff and JC for a great stay!! Your both truly know how to treat your guests!!
