We are a family of five, mother, father and three sons. We initially acquired this property as a second home while our children were growing up, to be able to enjoy it with them and other family members during week ends.

Owner purchased this house in 2000

We chose this property because Dorado Beach has and will always be the #1 place of choice for most Puerto Ricans from the San Juan area who wish to have a vacation home outside of the city, but close enough to be able to enjoy it frequently. The beach and amenities are the best in Puerto RIco, for a resort property.

Dorado Beach is a premier property, its 3 miles of beaches are spectacular. The location of this property within a Beach and Golf club, and a high end resort, guarantees that the renter will have many amenities to choose from. The house itself has a great design, and is very comfortable, all in one floor.

Fabulous Vacation with Perfect Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 27, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
We stayed at Annie's house over Feb School Break with our 3 children (18,8 and 4) and had fantastic time. The house is beautiful and was a perfect size for everyone to have their own space. It had everything we needed and the yard was great to have to sit outside and let the kids run around in the morning or after a day at the beach.

The house is in a beautiful very up-scale 'residential' area of the Reserve but the golf cart allowed us easy access to all the facilities. By golf cart, 2 min to Livingston Park which was a great fun, play pool with slide and sand park for the kids, 5 minutes to the Watermill (water park open only weekends), 6 minutes to Encanto which was a beautiful kid-friendly pool right at the Wast Beach. The beach was beautiful and large rocks about 100 yards out allowed the waves to break and the water to be very calm for swimming. We also swam and used the boogie boards (provided at house) on the East beach away from the hotel. The waves were bigger here and the kids loved it.

We did get the Beach Club Membership and I would HIGHLY recommend this as it allowed us total access to everything in Dorado Beach East & The Ritz Carlton.

The Reserve is beyond beautiful and extremely safe, completely gated with security patrolling frequently. I ran along the walking trails every morning and it was heaven. The Reserve is < 5 min away from the supermarket, drugstores, Starbucks, Cold Stone etc so we were able to easily shop for anything we needed. There is really no place to buy food, sun screen, etc.. on the property so being close to stores was ideal.

My husband golfed 2x. Once on the Pineapple and once on the East Course. He said both were fantastic and the play was very fast.

We ate at Encanto 2 nights and the food was excellent. We also had 2 lunches at the Watermill and while the food was good, the service was extremely slow. We grilled one night at the house but otherwise ate dinners out - once to San Juan to Ruth Chris and otherwise places in the area. We came back to the house for a 'sun-break' most days and had lunch at the house.

Annie was AMAZING!!! Detailed emails were sent prior to the trip and any questions we had were promptly answered via email or text. The house was exactly as described/pictured.

Overall one of our top family vacations and a place we hope to return to in the future! You will not be disappointed with this rental!
Owner's Response: Thanks Kara, for taking the time to write such a marvelous and detailed guest review! This is very informative for future guests who may be in the decision making process. You were amazing guests, too! It seems that you fully enjoyed all the amenities the resort and my house have to offer and I hope to see you back soon!
Best,
Annie

Fantastic Family Vacation!

From the moment we arrived Annie had taken care of everything. Our temporary membership cards for the Ritz Carlton Reserve were ready and waiting, the home was beautifully decorated, spotless, and had everything we could ever need. The biggest hit for my teenage daughters was access to the 6 person golf cart which was great for getting around the resort, the many beaches, fitness center, basketball courts, and pools. The nature trails surrounding the property were wonderful for walking, biking, and running. The home was perfectly situated with access to San Juan, the rain forest, snorkeling, and cave exploring. We did it all and will definitely return again with our family! Annie, thank you so much for allowing us the use of your lovely home.

Our best family vacation yet!

The house was terrific and more spacious then the pictures show. It was great having the use of the golf cart, because it fit all of our family and we loved driving it around the resort. Annie was wonderful to work with. We have 4 children ranging in age from 9 to 15. It is not always easy to do something that everyone enjoys. They loved staying here and all have definitely said they want to come back next year! There were so many things to do right at the resort, we snorkeled with the Ambassadors of the Environment and then snorkeled on our own. We also paddled boarded at the Barlovento beach area. We all had a great time at the Watermill on the lazy river and pool slides (even in the rain). There were so many things to choose from right at the resort, including just lounging at the pools. Everyone we talked to at the resort was extremely gracious. We would highly recommend staying at this lovely home.
Owner's Response: Thanks Cheryl for providing this wonderful and detailed review. It was great you mentioned all the amenities, so that future guests will learn more about this unique resort!!
I look forward to see you next year when you come back!
Best regards,
Annie

Dream vacation stay.

We rented Annie's house for the month of May,2013. Could not have been more comfortable and pleased with not only Annie but the entire experience at Dorado Beach East and the adjoining Ritz Carlton Resort area. It's only minutes away by Annie's golf cart to four golf courses, sand beaches, a Water Park, tennis and club house with pool plus the resort area. We found all service people and especially
the gate guards to be extremely hospitable. The security was also superb. Annie was only a phone call away and the house was clean,
well equipped and beautifully decorated. If and when we return to Puerto Rico, we would go back to Dorado Beach East and hopefully rent from Annie again. Ruth and Dick Erausquin, Englewood, FL.
Owner's Response: Dick and Ruth lived in Puerto RIco 10 years during the seventies, in fact, in a house very close to were I live now in San Juan. Throughout our conversations we realized we knew people in common and I was able to reconnect them to a family they knew from those years, so it was an enjoyable experience working with them! In fact they used to be members at Dorado Beach way back then, so they know the beauty and value of this property as one of the most stunning naturally preserved properties in Puerto RIco. I am very happy and satisfied that they enjoyed so much staying at my home in Dorado Beach East! Thanks for the guest review, DIck and Ruth!! Hope to see you in the not too distant future!
Best, Annie

Perfect family vacation

Our family of 5 stayed at this wonderful house April 2-9th. It was fabulous. Annie was the perfect host from the efficient communication before booking up until we left. She was a phone call or text away with anything that we needed, including maps, restuarants, beach club info, etc. The house had more than enough space for us and our 3 children (ages 7, 6, and 4). Annie graciously provided us with a golf cart that allowed us to get anywhere that we needed to go on the property. It is a beautiful, safe, gated community with access to golf, tennis, several pools, waterparks, and on the grounds of the amazing new Ritz Carlton Reserve.
We spent every day at the Ritz (for a very reasonal fee for the week) enjoying their pools, beach, and restaurants!! Plantation village (also on the property) also had a wonderful restaurant called Zafra.
The town of Dorado was a few minutes away by car and also had everything we needed, including walgreens, restuarants, and grocery store. We chose not to leave the area but San Juan was only 30 minutes away.
It was our 1st rental from homeaway and we were not disappointed at all. It was the most amazing relaxing vacation and we can't wait to go back again soon!!
Owner's Response: Hi Tracy,
It was a pleasure having guests like you and your beautiful family! I am very glad you chose to stay with us and that you loved the house and the property. Hope to see you back soon!!
Best,
Annie
