Lovely, simply lovely!

  • 5 of 5
We had a delightful stay at this property. As three women traveling together, the gated community was very important to us; we felt safe and secure in our home and on the adjacent beach. The view from the patio is just as gorgeous as pictured, and the secluded (not private) beach is steps away. The house was perfect for our needs, it's not a resort, but it's clean, cozy, and the location absolutely cannot be beat. We did have a rainy day and did not experience the leaks mentioned by other reviewers, so this must have been corrected. Mari and Manolo were wonderful hosts, checking in just enough that we knew they were available, but not so much as to be obtrusive.

We almost booked a rental that was further inland, rationalizing that we would be at the beach most of the time and wouldn’t be in the house anyway, but I’m SO glad we rented the Dorado Beach House, having the ocean right out the back door (you’re up a little and it’s not a swimming beach, so no people are looking in your back door) and the secluded beach just steps away really made this a vacation to remember. If you’re on the fence, I can only tell you to book it, you won’t be sorry!

Tips
*We used the Dorado Starbucks in our GPS as the end point, it's easy to navigate back to the house from there and Siri always found it.
*Use the Catano ferry if you're going into Old Town, it's cheap, easy to park, and you get a great view of the city from the water. Plus the free trolley stops right outside.
*Check out the Ruta de Lechon, it's a drive, but you get to see the mountainous part of the island, and the food is to die for!
*Buy some Yaucono coffee at CVS on the cheap, we had some every morning on the patio and took some home for souvenirs. Add a little sweetened condensed milk (poor man's dulce de leche!) and it's perfection.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and grown children just stayed at the Dorado Beach house for two weeks, and it was ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! When you first walk in the sound of the waves is
the first thing you notice. The lanai is so peaceful and the small side yard is a great place to tan if you don't want to make the two minute walk to the beach.
The house isn't fancy, but it was clean and comfortable and had everything you could possibly need for a great vacation. We've stayed in beach houses on the north and south side of Kuaui, and they were both wonderful, but the
proximinty to the water at Dorado makes it incomparable.
Mari and Manolo were always available for questions and were a pleasure to work with. We are already making plans for our next stay.
We had been there about 10 days when a neighbor told us about a ferry that goes from Catano to Old San Juan. It costs $4 to park all day and the ferry is $1 round trip. It's great because you can avoid downtown San Juan and parking.
I just can't recommend Dorado highly enough. It was truly ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!!!

Vacation to Remember

  • 5 of 5
6 adults stayed at the residence and have to say; it had everything you needed. Comfy beds, hot water, refrigerator, utensils and culinary pots etc... This was a family vacation. The views of the water was breathtaking and beaches well, private and we loved it. Like every resident on top of the water you will have a bit of humidity lingering in the house but you didn't feel it with the A/C etc.

We chose Dorado to have more a retreat from the hussle of the big city; however San Juan is just a 30 minute ride. For 1st timers, Isabela Thousand Trails in Isabela is a definite must see. 2 hours of horseback riding through the fields and beaches of Isabela Survival Beach. Short break for a dip in the water and pics. We are still hovering over the pictures we took there. Eclipse restaurant mins away lies on the beach property and 10% discount. Mention the horseback riding. You will definitely love it!. Bio Bay also in Fajardo is a must!. Great experience. Thank you Mari and Manolo. We will see you soon. Regards, Jason and Evelyn

house needs work.

This house needs some TLC. It is in a great location with awesome views and great outdoor area. There were issues with the electric, which made us very nervous. Also problems with leaking, since we got some rain, we also mopped the floors e ery nite.

Million Dollar View - House needs work

  • 4 of 5
The view was beyond our expectations! We rented this particular property with budget restraints. Great for the price, however it came with a few issues. The furniture is very old and rundown, The A/C in one of the bedrooms only made loud noise. A quick check outside showed one side of the unit was totally gone and the rest very badly rusted. We only needed 2 of the bedrooms so it wasn't a big issue with us. Every room had rusted, dirty metal panels at the ceiling level for what I assume was hurricane protection. The main issue for us though was the water heater. No hot water for almost 3 days. Before it was replaced, we were given complicated instructions for how to turn it on so there was never hot water without a 2 hr wait.

On the better side though, the patio was perfect - it even had a hammock - and was steps away from the ocean. At high tide the crashing waves actually sprayed the area. It was literally steps to the private beach. It was gorgeous and accessible only to the subdivision. My husband said the snorkeling was terrific but the water temp was a bit chilly for me yet.

The men fished with Captain Juan 2 days and had a blast! He is out of San Juan, a 30 minute drive away. They recommend him highly!

We love the island and were happy to share it with a couple of friends. It is the perfect beach vacation with so much more! El Yunque, Old San Juan, great shopping and fishing and the friendliest people in the Caribbean.

For a great vacation experience, you won't find a better value. We highly recommend Puerto Rico, Dorado and this general area. When upgrades are made to the unit, it will be hard to beat. Now though, it just needs too much work.

Owner's Response: We are glad the guests liked the view so much they titled it: “Million Dollar View”, which is one of the main features for someone looking to rent the property. The second one is great value in the cost of their stay.

We are sorry this particular customer had the bad luck to have two appliances dysfunction during their visit. The situation was resolved with brand new replacements on a water heater and a new air conditioning unit. Regretfully one of the inconveniences of an ocean front property is rust and consequently extremely high maintenance costs. The storm panels will be moved so they are less visible.

We are happy you could confirm our pride in having one of the best beaches in Puerto Rico. All of the upgrades to the property are being programed in addition to having improvements being done while I write this.

Our new beachside heavenly place

  • 5 of 5
This beach house exceeded our expectations. Each sunset and sunrise was priceless. We were able to get away from our daily routine for a wonderful week on the north shore of Puerto Rico. The town of Dorado is very clean and trips to all of our desired destinations were easily accessible (Old San Juan, Bacardi Rum Factory, Arecibo Observatory, Luquillo beach, El Yunque Rain Forrest, Camuy caverns, etc). Dorado also offers numerous restaurants in all price ranges. The appliances & furniture are nicely kept and clean. The place was perfect for our family of four (2 adults & 2 teenagers). We loved the private beach and being able to drive to public beaches all over the north shore of the island. Snorkeling at the private beach was spectacular. The owners were very helpful and attentive. We will definitely return to this beach house and recommend it to our friends.
