A little piece of heaven!

I have to admit I was skeptical that this place would live up to my expectations. It surpassed them. My husband and I just spent a week in this perfectly situated duplex and would return tomorrow, if possible. The house is located on a point of sorts, with the roaring waves crashing just below the deck in front. On either side, within a 60 second walk away, are two beautiful bays with calm waters and sandy beaches, perfect for swimming.
The deck is ideal for sunning, reading, or watching the pelicans fly by. We were especially thrilled to watch a small pod of whales playing in the ocean directly in front of the house one morning as we drank our coffee on the deck.
What you see is what you get with this rental. The ocean front of this home consists mostly of windows and glass doors so, no matter which way you look, the view is blue, blue, and more blue. The house was clean and well maintained with plenty of "extras". Wi-fi, DirecTV, air conditioning, washer and dryer, gas grill, even a hammock. No need to pack a hairdryer, snorkeling gear, beach towels, umbrellas, or games. The house is well stocked with everything you'll need for creating a great vacation.
Within a few miles you'll find plenty of restaurants and shopping, yet the house seems "away from it all". It's located at the end of a small cul-de-sac in a gated community and we loved the privacy it afforded. When we were in the mood for sightseeing, San Juan was 30 minutes (depending on traffic) away, El Yunque was maybe an hour or a little more.
The homeowner was very friendly and helpful in suggesting activities and restaurants she thought we would be interested in. She lives about 5 minutes away so, should the need arise, she can be reached very quickly.
For a couple or family with 2 or 3 children, this place is the perfect get away!
