Our Amazing Stay @ Casa del Mar
We just returned from our one week vacation in Casa del Mar. Even if we planned it short notice, I took the time to research well the place we are going to stay, especially since we have a 10 months old little baby. We looked for privacy, comfortable accommodation, with view to blue waters. This location offered more than that. We did have the chance to literally let ourselves slide every morning from our bed, into the pool and then into the ocean. The baby waked up early and this gave me the chance to peacefully drink my coffee while enjoying the beautiful sunrise. Small experience that makes one appreciate the little precious things in life. My husband mentioned the sunrise a whole day (and he is a less of a contemplative guy). The nature there touches you instantaneously, makes you forget the past and feel the present. We loved walking in the morning on the empty beach, feel the water and the soft sand touching our feet. Made us feel happy.
We felt like home, all appliances were in great condition and available to us. What you will like is the attention to detail, the place was very clean, well taken care and I loved to indulge myself in the little hair products the hosts left for us. They live above, the second floor and they are very easily available and helpful, very attentive to details and making sure we have all the privacy we desire. The pool and all you can see in the pictures is available only to you. We did enjoy a couple of talks with the owner. We found him to be a very charismatic person. I think the place is a reflection his warm heart and the realization of it is the joined effort of his family. Their goal is to make you feel at home, while the home has one of the most amazing views I have seen. Our regular day would start early on the pool/beach. My mother joined us during the stay, she slept with the baby in the living area (there was a comfortable bed). She enjoyed her stay, especially the clean pool.
We made good use of our stay. After lunch we would go for a trip every day. We made the Routa panoramica. Stopped once at a local bar. People just sent us drinks and food (also local lechon), we danced. Even baby liked it. Another day we visited the Old San Juan (40 minutes by car), the fourth day the El Yunque Tropical Forest and the fifth day visited the island Vieques. We spent our last day before departure at Casa Del Mar, in the pool, on the beach and comfortable reading on the sun beds under the umbrellas. Loved it!
