Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first time ever renting a vacation home and i was a little leary, but John was so wonderful and easy to work with. He was very accesible and we had no problems. The house was amazing. Great view and a real outdoors experince.



Great location it took us about 15 minutes to get to old San Juan. The only suggestion (which John warned us about) I have is to change the beds to full or queen beds it was somewhat of a hassel trying to get everyone situated.



The price was so good this was a hard deal to pass up! Even with the trouble with the beds I would definitly stay here again.



Thanks again John, we had a blast and we really enjoyed the home. More...

Family loved it

  • 4 of 5
Great house overall. I went for spring break with 3 teenagers and 4 adults, we all enjoyed ourselves. the house is a little secluded but we didnt mind that. The mountain views were great for sunrises and sunsets, pool for taking a nice dip when it gets hot. If yourent this place you WILL need a rental car as it is some distance from the airport, about 20 mins, but other than that you cant go wrong with this place.

CARIBBEAN UTOPIA

  • 5 of 5
Whether you have one or many chances to stay in the Caribbean, don’t miss this place. We have been fortunate to vacation from Mexico to Paris, Montreal to Antigua and many points in between. This beautiful house and property is our favorite. We have stayed here eight weeks in the last four years. We are done with the crowded hotels, crowded beaches and cramped spaces. The serenity, privacy and openness of this house and pool creates THE PERFECT VACATION. One can sit outside day or night by the pool, in the open dining room or in the open living room and enjoy the tranquility of nature without the nuisance of pests or people. When we are in the mood for entertainment, fine restaurants or sightseeing, San Juan is only fifteen minutes away. FYI..don’t miss the Ralph Laureen store in Old San Juan for some great deals. The cleanliness and amenities of this property adds to the joy and peacefulness of staying here.

Great experience!

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time at John’s home! He was very responsive to the few questions we had and super to work with. The directions can be a bit challenging (as I expected) ... but that's par for the course for driving in PR … the address is 43 Calle Camino Real, San Juan, Guaynabo, Puerto Rico. Two very minor issues: the mattresses downstairs are not adequate to truly support sleeping 8.... we doubled them up to sleep 6. The water pressure in the bathroom immediately adjacent to the front to door is inadequate for a shower (just a trickle).... this is even with no one else showering in the home. But let me say again that these are minor issues … overall, this place rocks! A wonderful location for a family retreat - really awesome and highly recommended!

Nice Private Grounds, Need Better Cleaning

  • 2 of 5
First the good. The property is very private and set in a beautiful location. It is a gated community. The property is on top of a hill and is very serene.

The not so good: It took us about two hours to find. The directions were awful (there were very few street names listed on the directions). With a little bit of effort the directions could have been much better and we would have avoided going around in circles. Also, the problem could have been avoided if the address would have included the neighborhood. It should have said: ‘43 Calle Camino Real, San Juan, Guaynabo, Puerto Rico.’ Again, a little more attention to would have made a big difference. To John’s credit he was available to us late at night and tried to help us locate the property over the phone – but this could have been avoided.

The house itself has a very unique layout. The dining room and living room have no walls, only a ceiling and it is actually very beautiful. The house itself is not new. It is functional but certainly not updated. What troubled us more was that it was really not cleaned properly. The master bedroom is beautiful and very airy but when we came in there was a definite odor. It may even be mold. We didn’t use the downstairs bedrooms. They are quite small but usable.

Another thing that troubled us was that the gardener was there a lot. He was there on Wednesday from 8am-3:30pm and then back again on Thursday for several hours to do painting. Although the gardener was a nice fellow, if you are spending money on a private rental it isn’t pleasant to have someone working around the house – at least that is my feeling. Also, note that there is another small house on the property that ‘may be rented to others.’ If you want privacy clarify with John whether it will be rented out to another party.

Owner's Response: Admittedly the property is not the easiest to find, more so at night, and especially if you do not print or follow the step by step instructions I send to all renters, which apparently is what this guest did, for example if directions state 20 mins away and you call 2 hours later, something is wrong.

The house has NO mold it just is located on a tropical island in the Caribbean and the humidity can be more than what one is used to.

It so happens that this guest whose stay was shorter than usual (3 Days) coincided with the gardener servicing the property which is performed every other week.

Lastly I am not sure why this guest is mentioning the addl villa when I clearly stated that this is almost exclusively rented/offered to larger groups who may need more beds, but not independently.

Thank you,

WOW!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 8 days in June 2013 here. The photos do not provide justice to this house! It is more beautiful in person. The neighborhood is awesome beautiful trees and plants are abundant. I can't say enough to describe our stay. The house was beautiful, the views from anywhere in the house or patio are stunning! The pool is a great bonus! We will definitely be back. Easy drive to San Juan and grocery store. Closest grocery store is three miles away - Econo. We went to El Yunque Rain Forest. We all agreed that the property was more beautiful that what we saw there!! Thanks for everything!

One of the most relaxing stays ever

  • 5 of 5
The place was unique and fabulous. My husband and I visited with my son and my mother, and there was plenty of room for everyone. My son, who often doesn't like traveling, was very comfortable during our stay, and even convinced us to cancel our sightseeing plans on one of the days, so we could just hang out on the property. Make sure you include plenty of down time in your itinerary, just to enjoy the outdoor dining, the views from the master bedroom, the coquis in the bathroooms, the pool, and exploring the property. I would second what other reviwers wrote: a GPS is absolutely essential. I would also recommend looking up an address for a good supermarket before you arrive.
