About Jorge and Maria Charneco

IBM retiree and semi-retired university professor born in San Juan, PR. Lived 12 years in the US, where we worked and attended graduate school.

Jorge and Maria Charneco purchased this house in 2003

Why Jorge and Maria Charneco chose Manati

The first time we came to Marchiquita beach area we fell in love with the spectacular 180 degrees ocean view and we decided immediately to buy the lot and build the beach house overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on a 50 ft cliff oceanfront with a 3-5 minute walk or 1 minute car ride to the public beach and 2-3 minute nature trek walk to a secluded beach pond from house. We had visited other beach areas in the island but found them too crowded for us. This area was perfect to make our dream come true!

This is our family vacation home and even though we have our home in San Juan our children and grandchildren, who live in the USA, prefer to stay here in beach house because they love it!

The house is very homey! You will feel this is your 'Home Away from Home!'

What makes this house unique

Spectacular 180 degree views of the ocean. Walking distance (3-5 minute walk or 1 minute car ride) to public beach and a 2-3 minute nature trek walk to secluded beach pond. House has a fenced yard, making it safe for children.

It is a 7-10 minutes away from town, where you find restaurants, fast food places, pharmacies, shopping and food stores. There is also a Casino in town, in case you are interested!

House has equipped stainless steel kitchen; amenities such as table games, etc. Plenty of sitting space in the indoor terrace and outside deck, suitable for relaxation, while enjoying the spectacular 180 degrees Atlantic Ocean view during daytime or moon and stars in the sky by night!

Play & Pack, stroller, car and booster seats for small children, as well as toys are available.

Great stay.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely home. The owners were wonderful, the house was well stocked and comfortable and the view was gorgeous. Two beaches are within a 2 minute walk and the amenities of town are a 5-10 minute drive. Our family of four - including 2 teenaged boys - enjoyed it thoroughly.

Perfect getaway location with all necessities nearby

  • 5 of 5

Jorge and Maria did not fail to live up to the standards of previous reviewers. The house was perfect for the two of us to just lounge and watch the ocean (fantastic location and the waves were impressive against the rocks). Definitely can not swim in this area due to the strong waves and rocky formations but that also keeps people away. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and had the quiet, relaxing vacation we were expecting. Thanks Jorge and Maria!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the review! We really enjoyed meeting you! Hope you can come back in the future when we do not have a cold front coming from the north so you can also enjoy the beach! Jorge and Maria Elena Charneco

Wonderful home and hosts, spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

As others have said, Maria and Jorge are superb hosts. They greeted us when we arrived, gave us a tour of their home, had a basket of goodies and a bottle of wine for us and showed us their book of information about the area plus other brochures. They had offered to lead us from our car rental site but we were arriving in daylight and the instructions they gave us were very good so we didn't feel that was necessary. We have never stayed at a VRBO home that was so well equipped as this--even the variety of spices was impressive.

We were coming from the horrendous snows of New England and to walk onto the terrace with its spectacular view (the web site photos are accurate) was just such a pleasure. We ate all our at-home meals on the terrace which has both open and covered areas.

There were four of us, two couples, the younger pair in their sixties, and we managed sharing the bathroom just fine. We all found it a most relaxing six days. We enjoyed walking to the two beaches but only one of us ventured into the water. During the week we were there the two beaches were not good for swimming, especially for the elderly and people with any disabilities. The waves were enormous but quite beautiful to watch and photograph. One day we visited the Camuy Cave and the radio telescope at Arecibo. Another day we had an interesting tour of Hacienda La Esperanza. We also drove into the reserve beyond the Hacienda, a great place for bird watching.

Many thanks to Maria and Jorge for sharing their home.

Owner's Response: We are really happyto know you enjoyed your stay in our beach home! We are glad to have met all of you! Unfortunately during those days a cold front came from the north to the island and the beach was not suitable for beach goers. Hope next time you come to Puerto Rico the weather is on our side!

Beautiful House, Stunning Ocean Views

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an incredible time staying in this beautiful Manati home. It had everything our family of four needed and wanted (we have two kids under the age of 5) --- and then some. The location is perfect, just a quick walk down to a secluded beach or a public beach (which doesn't get that crowded at all). There are some nice little tide pools about midway between the two beach access points, which was great for our kids, because the waves were a little strong for them. But perhaps the best thing about staying here was the incredible hospitality shown to us by Jorge and Cusy, the owners. The actually meet you at the airport so you can follow them back to the house and not get lost. It was a really nice touch. They were always accessible and eager to answer our questions (via text or phone call) and they had a very detailed book about surrounding resources and points of interest that we found tremendously helpful. We've rented many houses through Home Away, but we've never had owners that have gone to such great lengths to ensure we had a great time and had everything we needed. I can't say enough about how wonderful they were. It felt more like we were renting from friends and not strangers. We would highly recommend staying here.

Magnificant View

  • 5 of 5

During the six days we stayed here, we barely moved from the comfortable terrace overlooking the magnificent ocean. The description of the property is accurate but undersells the unbelievable beauty of the view and the soothing sounds of the ocean and the birds. We saw whales during our stay, using the binoculars provided by the hosts. The upper terrace provides both covered and sun areas with comfortable furniture groupings and easy access to the house. The house is located in a quiet area of well kept up homes. The house was clean and lovingly maintained. It was well equipped with everything we needed or wanted during our stay. We did not need to use the air conditioning units because we had good breezes and ceiling fans during the day and night.

The owners met us at the car rental agency and led us to the house, about 45 minutes from San Juan. They provided exceptional customer service and we would have felt completely comfortable in contacting them if we needed any help during our stay. They want their renters to enjoy the property as much as they do, and it clearly shows.

We would (and have) recommend this property to our friends and relatives. We plan to return next year.
