Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful get away from our Minnesota Winter. We arrived to find 80 degree weather and beautiful sunshine everyday. Maria was helpful in answering our questions. We love this area as it is near the rainforest and the cloud shows were stupendous. The property and grounds are very safe with the security patrolling regularly. The grounds are well kept and we enjoyed most of our meals on the patio. Maria has beach chairs and toys stored where they are easily accessed. The kitchen was very well stocked and organized. We enjoyed daily walks on the beach and it felt like we had the beach to ourselves some days. It was quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed the nite sounds and the quiet occasional rains were peaceful. This property is near the Liquillo kiosks and near other restaurants. The Fajardo ferries run very near here. We plan on returning soon.

Christmas Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was clean, spacious, and had all the necessary supplies you would need during a weeklong vacation. We cooked every night at the apartment, but if we wanted to head to a restaurant, Rio Grande and Luquillo, were 10-15 minutes away.

My 13yo would wake up each morning to explore the beach. Not once did I worry about his safety. The security staff was always patrolling the grounds; and certainly got to know us because we were always leaving to explore other parts of this lovely island.

We hiked El Yunque, visited Luquillo beach (but didn’t swim – we liked our beach just fine), the kiosks (not a fan of fried food, but it was still interesting to take in the atmosphere of the place), drove to Humacao (something to do on Christmas day), drove to Guavate for lechon, and went snorkeling on a boat out of Farjado.

Although we stayed in San Juan for two nights, if you were to stay at this property, you could easily do a day trip in the city because it took less than a half an hour to get there.

We have been renting through vrbo/homeaway now for over nine years. This apartment is one of the better properties.

Very Clean, Stocked, and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The directions to the property and instructions to enter were very clear and helpful. When we arrived, the rental was as pictured, but even better.

The location within the complex was perfect. First floor, so direct exit off the patio left us 100 yards from the beach and 100 yards from the pool. The rental is equipped with everything that you could possible need, in the kitchen and elsewhere. The gas grill is large and new, and was wonderful. Everything was clean and well maintained.

Not only was there gated security, but the guards patrolled regularly, making us feel safe at all times. The guards at the gate were very friendly.

The location was perfect for those that were hiking in El Yuenque (20 minutes to the trail head) and Loquillo Beach and Kioskos (10 minutes). When we went in to Old San Juan, it took less than a half hour. For the NE section of the island, this location was perfect.

Excellent Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this condo and found it to be excellent. The place is located in a condo complex with 24/7 security. The pools and grounds were very clean. The condo was very clean and well equipped. It had everything we needed. It was literally like been home away from home. We used the grill that is provided and enjoyed the two weeks very much. The complex is close to El Yunque National Forest. It is a 30 to 40 minute drive to San Juan. It is about a 15 minute drive to the Light house natural reserve and about a 25-30 minute drive to the Bio-Bay. Very well located. You need a car to go places here as there is no public transportation but it was not a big deal for us. I spoke to the local security guard and he informed me that most of the condos are owned by locals who live in San Juan and come here only during the weekends; thus making the place quite and peaceful. We left on 8/30/14 and saw few people come over for the long holiday weekend but the rest of the time we had the pools to ourselves. I really recommend this to anybody with a family.

Steps from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfect for the family of 4. My husband and I rented it with our two sons. You walk out the back porch and you are literally steps from the beach. The condo had everything we needed as well, beach supplies, extra chairs, towels, etc. We even used the grill one night and had a lovely dinner on the back porch. I would definitely stay here again!

A wonderful home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We picked Puerto Rico as the place to spend our very first "family" vacation. This was the wife, my 11-year-old step-daughter, and me. My wife and I always choose rentals over hotels as we prefer the homey feel and the ability to put the majority of money towards enjoying the locale rather than a plush room. #2212 at Casa del Mar II was a wonderful place to do this.

The condo is just as described in the listing. All rooms were nicely furnished and homey and the kitchen was well-stocked with cookware, silverware, eating ware, utensils, etc. for pretty much anything most travelers would want to do in a kitchen. The patio was also very well appointed, with a table with chairs for 6, a separate seating area, and a gas grill. What was not mentioned in the listing, and should be, is that this condo is within a beachside "resort." It's not just one condo in one building alongside the beach. Rather, it is set within other buildings, between which are plush lawns with tropical flora. And "our" patio was the most wonderfully decorated and comfortable. The grounds are patrolled 24 hours by security.

The grounds are pleasant and quiet all the time as well--at least as far as people go. We were serenaded most nights by a symphony of coquis and insects. This might be a bother or a wonderful thing to fall asleep to...depends on the person. My only issue was that the master bed was too soft. My wife was ok with it though so...personal thing. Bottom line is that I highly recommend this rental. Maria even called us on Saturday during the passing of Tropical Storm Bertha through Puerto Rico. This was a normal occurrence for islanders--even much desired as they've been dealing with drought conditions for a few months now--but we mainlanders panic when we hear weather reports of approaching storms. Thanks Maria!
