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

Jorge and Maria Charneco purchased this house in 2003

The first time we came to Marchiquita beach area we fell in love with the spectacular 180 degrees Atlantic 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 homely! You will feel this is your 'Home Away from Home!'

Spectacular 180 degree views of the Atlantic 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.

MILLION DOLLAR VIEW

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I arrived in San Juan on the 11th and was met by the lovely owners at the car rental. We followed them to the house which was a 45 minute drive. As we came over the last hill toward the house we were met with this incredible ocean view. Upon entering the home I was struck with its cleanliness and appropriate beach decor. They gave us the tour and showed us important details along with a gift basket of Puerto Rican snacks. My husband's family lives in PR and so we went to pick up his mother, who was 20 minutes away, and brought her back to stay with us. Every morning I got up first and fixed my coffee and sat on the patio watching the ocean, seeing hummingbirds, and enjoying the breeze. The stay was absolutely perfect and I would highly recommend this property and the precious couple who owns it.

THIS WAS SUCH A GREAT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
Everything was just as they explained in the listing and the Owners were very friendly and catered to us. We didn't have any problems, it really felt like home with great furnishings and the house was spotless. I recommend staying at this property and I personally intend returning as a repeat Customer. Thanks for everything.

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.

LOVELY HOME. STUNNING VIEWS. ATTENTIVE HOMEOWNERS

  • 5 of 5
We chose this ocean front home because of its promising description, positive reviews, and location on the ocean. We arrived with high expectations and were not disappointed. The photos of the house and veranda do not do it justice. The rooms are bright and airy; the furnishings are modern and in excellent condition; and the house is kept clean and well-maintained. The wrap-around veranda was the highlight of the house for us. It is spacious, lighted, and nicely furnished with both covered and open areas. The views are spectacular and one of the nicest beaches on the north coast a 3-minute walk away.

Our hosts, Maria and Jorge, were gracious. They were patient in answering our questions before we decided to rent and attentive to our needs once we did. They met us at the airport, accompanied us to the house (45 minutes away in traffic) and showed us how to use the locks and appliances. They dealt with our one maintenance problem (a malfunctioning a/c remote controller) promptly and in a manner that was respectful of our privacy. I would not hesitate to do business with them again or to recommend this lovely property to friends and relatives.

A GENUINE GETAWAY!

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed the drive to and from the property, lush, secluded, and kept the windows down to hear the coqui frogs at their best! We felt secure, and 'at home'.
The home had most of the conveniences we would expect on vacation, and then some. My only discomfort was the limited air conditioning in the main room and none in the kitchen, especially with the dryer going. I guess it depends what your preferences are, and we were gone mostly during the daytime hot weather.
The owners are soooo hospitable, and easy to reach when you have questions. We would recommend Los Tubos beach (easy access and nobody around) the most, then Mar Chiquita. Loved the book they provide also with local information! There is a local breakfast/lunch place, Veronica's Bakery (near corner of 2 and 686)..great place to try local foods and have a great breakfast. Thank you Jorge and Maria for a wonderful home away from home!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your feedback! We are glad you had a good time staying in our beach house!

Sorry you had the inconvenience of not having air conditioning in the entire house. We will study the feasibility of adding air conditioning to the living, dining and kitchen areas for further guest comfort.

The mini split air condition units we have are in the two bedrooms and family room (where the TV is located). The mini split air conditioned unit in the family room has 24 BTU's that cools well the entire family room. If the temperature is not too hot outside the beach house, it could refresh the living, dining rooms and kitchen area also, as long as bedroom, kitchen doors, and windows are closed and the washer and dryer are not on. Nevertheless, the living room, dining room and kitchen do have ceiling fans to cool off the air in those areas. The outside terrace has a ceiling fan to cool the area if it is too hot outside for our guests. The average temperature outside is 85 degrees although in the summer months June through August could be higher.

Thanks again for your feedback and hope to see you come back in the future!

LOOK NO FURTHER!

  • 5 of 5
Business in San Juan brought me to the island but I opted to bring hubby with me for a little R&R time and my good friend/co-worker brought her 13 yr old daughter so this rental was a great option for us to see a different part of the island for a few days before moving to the resort in SJ.

Set about 35 miles West of San Juan, Manati offers a slower pace with all the conveniences of markets, restaurants and entertainment but it is the views that dazzled us the most. While the home is in a neighborhood, there is a supreme sense of privacy and security. The grounds were immaculate and the house was spotless and well maintained. The decor was tasteful/beachy with every amenity at your fingertips. Having a full kitchen and washer/dryer saved us from having to dine out for all our meals and really, we just wanted to enjoy the views from the upper deck where we ate our breakfast and dinner. The photos of this property simply cannot illustrate what a gem it truly is.

Mar Chiquita Beach made for a fun day. We packed the ice chest and set out for a day of surf, kite flying and reading under one of the many almond trees. This is a great family beach but if you are looking for a bit more privacy, there is a "locals" only area that is just a 5 minute walk. We never saw another soul in this hidden oasis. We ventured out to Arecibo and El Yunque rainforest and all were a convenient trip.

Some of our retail highlights: Skip the WalMart for groceries-we used Selecios. Some of the best sushi I have ever enjoyed at Fu Hou (dynamite roll) and I can't remember the name but we enjoyed crepes at a creperie on hwy 2 and 685.

The biggest benefit of this property really has to be its owners. The kindness and knowledge we received was unforgettable. They were well prepared for any of our needs, welcomed us at SJU so we could follow them to the property (take them up on this offer), and were well informed on the area. Their hospitality was the cherry on top and they were the nicest folks we met on the island. We even had our own personal tour guide, Pecas, the neighbor's dog! Pecas showed us exactly where the locals beach was and spent her evenings with us on the deck. She may have been rewarded with a t-bone steak for her effort.

All in all this rental was perfect for us and I wouldn't hesitate sending anyone I know or staying here again. Great for small families, couples, retirees, and girls/guys getaway.
