Carlos was very easy to work with to reserve the apartment and he also had a list of places to visit and eat. Apartment was very close to the beach and had a pool. Very close to the rain forest and places to eat. Great place.

Convenient Location, Comfortable Stay, Good Value

  • 5 of 5
This lovely condo was exactly as pictured and described in the listing. There was plenty of space for our family of four. We visited Luquillo Beach (15 min) and kiosks a few times, the Rainforest (15 min), took snorkeling excursion out of Fajardo, and made a day trip to Arecibo Observatory, Parque Ceremonial Indigena Caguana (hard to say and find, but we enjoyed it) and La Cueva del Indio. San Juan is within easy reach. Back at "home," our teenager appreciated the wi-fi and lovely swimming pool. Our ten-year-old loved boogie boards and playground. We also enjoyed sitting on the covered balcony with a view to the ocean, playground, or pool. Kitchen is well enough equipped for meals at home, but note there is not a dishwasher. Other helpful additions included ice chests, hair dryer, beach towels and iron. Complex is gated, patrolled by guard, and very clean. Restaurants and grocery store are about a 10 minute drive. Complex is called Bosque del Mar and is steps from the beach. Beach was often empty. Surf is a little rough--which is great for boogie boards, but we didn't brave the kayak. There were very few other occupants in the complex during our 6 night stay. This was our first VRBO rental, and I was a little nervous sending the check. I'm glad I did! Our family had a great experience here. For less than the price of a hotel we had a spacious condo unit, privacy, nearby parking, the ability to do laundry and make our own food (and drinks!), and have the pool and beach to ourselves. The only suggestions we have are for a couple more pillows on the beds and a few more spices in the kitchen. We would stay here again. Thank you Carlos for promptly answering questions and providing a perfect home base for relaxing and exploring the island!

Relaxing Vacation in PR

  • 5 of 5
Great location, fabulous host.
Property was a 2 min walk to the beach, beach was frequently deserted. Pool was lovely and access to everything was great. Carlos was very helpful in all aspects and definitely customer oriented. Even when the airlines f'd up our flights on both ends, he was very accommodating. Plenty of room to sleep 6 if you needed to. Make sure you get a car, this location is not as close to any "main drags".
I really can't think of anything negative to say at all about this facility. As far as this side of the island, its access to the rainforest is premium, but keep in mind that can mean the occasional shower. Nothing to fret about.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5
Condo was just right for our family of five. Able to make easy meals to save on time and money. Location was steps from beautiful beach and a short drive to the rainforest. Luquillo Kiosks 15 minutes away. Condo came with 2 boogie boards, a surfboard and a kayak. Had a blast in the ocean. Used the washer every day to wash towels and suits. Felt very safe. Condo was gated and had 24 hour security. The owner was easy to reach if we had questions. Hoping to return to beautiful Puerto Rico and stay in same condo.

This complex is perfect for travelers looking to relax in a quiet beach setting. It has everything one could want for a perfect vacation. The beach and pool are steps from your door. The complex is kept impeccably clean and never crowded. The unit itself is clean, well kept & comfortable. It even has enough beach chairs for 4, coolers, boogie boards & other beach games. Another plus is the location. It is 10 minutes from the rainforest, Loquillo Beach and food kiosks, 20 minutes to Fajardo and 30 minutes to San Juan. The owner Carlos is wonderful and is very responsive to any of your needs beforehand and during your stay. I would not hesitate to stay at this property again!

Perfect Place/Location at a very Reasonable Price

  • 5 of 5
We just stayed at this property for more than a week over Christmas and had a wonderful time. The condo is clean, confortable and ideally located for an amazing vacation. If you wanted you could stay here for a week and not go anywhere else. It is a very quiet condo complex with no crowds and you feel like you have the grounds to yourself. There is a nice pool just a few yards away from the apartment, but our more frequent destination was the fantastic beach. The beach is beautiful - wide and long and nearly deserted. Most of the time we were there the water was smooth with gentle waves. We only saw a few other families on the beach the whole time we were there. But the other reason this condo was perfect for us is that it rests in an ideal location. You are far enough away from San Juan to be out of the urban sprawl here, but at the same time close enough to get in to old San Juan in less than 45 minutes. Plus you are near all the other fantastic things to do and see on the Eastern side of Puerto Rico. You are minutes away from the Rain Forest, and Loquillo beach. Just down the road is Fajardo and day trips to Culebra and Vieques. And just a little further down the road are some amazing beaches and sleepy town that are really delightful.
Finally, I just want to say that Carlos was very helpful and easy to contact during our stay. We had no issues at all...everything was perfect and all our needs were provided for ahead of time. But I was easily able to contact Carlos for questions and advice and always got a quick and helpful answer.
I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay in Puerto Rico. Giving it 5 stars was completely a no brainer. Thanks Carlos!
