PERFECT GETAWAY FOR FAMILIES.

  • 5 of 5
Fully equiped, cozy and confortable!
It's trully your "home away"!
The owners make all within their reach to make you feel at home! They even provide some treats and suppplies.
The condominium is nice and safe, but a car (and a GPS) is required since there are no restaurants, markets or shopping malls in the near surroudings.
A car is required anyway, in my opinion, if you like to explore the island and it's many attractions and to know different beaches, as I do...
I would reccommend a bit of caution since PR is a country of social contrasts, (but with a car you'll be fine).
Although the location is not the best, in in general it's a great cost-benefit!

WE FELT RIGHT AT HOME

  • 5 of 5
We loved this apartment. It was very clean and quiet. The neighborhood is gated so we felt very safe. It is a bit of a drive to San Juan, but its worth it. We had the pool area to ourselves which was great, they had beach towels/chairs/umberella/surf board and beach toys ...which was super convinient. The home owner was really nice.. he met up with us at the car rental place and we followed him to the apartment (very welcoming)...I accidently broke the key and it was not a problem at all ..we were given a new key later that day.
I'd definatly stay here again!

BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT!

  • 3 of 5
Our accomodations were exactly as described. Plenty of room for the 5 of us. Kevin met us at the car rental and was even gracious enough to take us on the scenic route to get to the apartment even though it was very slow going on a Sunday afternoon. He even treated us to a Puerto Rican snack from a roadside vendor.

The complex was close to empty while we were there (not sure why!) and the pool areas are a little run down and sparse. The hot tub was lukewarm one evening and downright cold the next evening. Clubhouse is completely empty and closed. Great location if you want easy access to San Juan, El Yunque and the islands!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking your time for your review. We are certainly happy that your found our apartment as described and that it suit your needs to a party of five. The clubhouse is an enclosed area next to one of the pool areas used for private parties and must be booked in advance, that is why it looked empty. It has tables, chairs, a huge TV, a bar area, bathrooms, etc. and ready for hosting events. There is the Gym area with saunas and equipments, next to the entrance, the tennis court and the basketball court that is certainly not empty and ready to use.

Happy travels!

GOOD CONDO, GREAT VALUE, OK LOCATION

  • 3 of 5
I really would rate this at 3.5 if I could. The party was 3 adults and 2 kids and we paid a reasonable price which I think is good value for the place. The condo is pretty, spacious, good kitchen and bedrooms. Bathroom and living rooms are ok. There some minor problems: bunk bed was a big plus for us when renting, but the bottom section moves when my 4 yeard on top turns in it, so he only slept there the first night. Washing maching is in the unit, works fine, but can be very loud. One of the A/C leaks, beach tent is broken, so nothing big but it's there.

The property itself is in a gated community in Louiza, which means its in the middle of everything but close to nothing. You are a bit in your own world, you feel safe and the condition is fine, but there neighborhood outside feels a bit decrepit and there is really nothing in terms of western grocery or restaurants nearby. That's the main thing you miss with being there, i.e. 20 min drive to the neariest normal grocery store and one restaurant option in a hotel not too far away. The beach is nice, it's close but pretty small, so if the community is filled up (it was a ghost town when we were there) it could get busy. Also, and I didn't realize how annoying this would be, no internet in the condo and a poor wifi connection near a pool.

Lastly, the owners are very friendly. They met us at the airport and helped us find it (it is a bit tricky to do that) and then answered any questions we had very promptly. Overall, good value, but has its downsides as well.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking your time to tell us about your experience. We are proud of our property and really appreciate guests comments and suggestions. Thank you for your comment about the bunk bed. You have been the firsts to complain about it. We will make sure all nuts and bolts are tightened. Regarding the washer and drying unit, it may be loud, but once you shut the door of the laundry room you can have a conversation on a normal tone of voice and watch TV without a bothering sound. We are glad to inform that the AC unit that was leaking water has been taken care of with a new and sturdier drainage system.

We have realized how important Internet is in our modern world. This is why we have decided to include high speed internet on the unit starting January 2014. This way all our guests will have the opportunity to be on vacation and still feel connected to the rest of the world and to better plan your days and visits while in Puerto Rico. Thanks again!

SUCH A PEACH

  • 5 of 5
Where do I start, the transaction between Mrs. **** and I to try and secure her place for my arrival time was smooth and straight to the point. My family and I stayed at this location for 5days/4nights. Mrs. **** was very pleasant and a wonderful woman when we met her. I was totally impress when she emailed me days prior trying to confirm flights so she can take us to the villa directly...............20 points for that. The Villa is little bit far from San Juan however with a car it was about 30 min away. When we pull up in this complex we were excited because it was gated and we knew we were going to be secure. The pictures that are viewed of this complex is not a lie. My family and I walked in with mouths wide open, it is a beautiful complex and the inside of the apartment is beyond comfortable and relaxing. We didn't had to worry about any roaches, spiders or anything out of the way. The linens were clean and the bathroom was on point as well (I am a person who has a pet peeve with a dirty kitchen and a disgusting bathroom). I was sold, we was sold and the price was not bad at all (I will not disclose what we paid). Mrs. ***** made us feel welcome, enjoyed that fact that some stuff was left for us to use if we didn't had. We also shopped and left some stuff as well. I was happy I was able to wash and dry to prevent traveling with dirty clothes. O and not forgetting it is children proof safe. I have a 1 yr old boy and he's very active, was super happy I didn't have to worry about him getting into trouble or breaking anything. They say when you rent a place you put in the cheapest things but in this case everything had look expensive and well kept.

My family and I came from the islands so after dealing with the business we came to do we proceed to shop which is inexpensive compare to where we live and we also visited El Yunque rainforest which was great. My other half, my mom, and sister made it through that hike to the waterfall and my son and I turned bk. Good Luck to whoever wants to go it was beautiful however I am not into hiking not one bit.

Now would you ask if I would recommend?
Yes I would recommend, you would be sold with the great hospitality from the owners and also the comfort, style, location of the place. I will Definitely return and stay here.

FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have been happier with our stay here! The owner met us at the car rental at 11pm so we could follow him to the property. Gated community with 2 pools and 2 minute walk to our private beach area! The condo itself was charming and will taken care of! Everything was through of - towels for the beach, beach chair, DVD player and even movies to watch! Even a book with local restaurant and activities! (That was so helpful!) Little extras made us feel like we were guests- coffee, shampoo, sunscreen, etc. We had 2 teenagers, 2 adults and 1 child and we were very comfortable. Nice to have a washer/dryer and felt very secure in the community. Great location between the rainforest and Old San Juan. We will definitely stay here again next time we go to Puerto Rico!
