I can't believe it's over, It seems like yesterday we were planning our Puerto Rico holiday and where to stay:) So excited when we found this one where the pictures looked spectacular and the reviews backed up the stunning impression I was getting as I considered booking this rental... Well, Solimar surpassed all of my expectations- photos could never do it justice.
Six nights we spent in Maria's home and yet, this morning was time to head to the airport and I walked out on the deck and continued to feel complete awe taking in the 180 degree unobstructed water view. Cast your gaze to the left and watch the surf down there, gaze to the right and there's a golf course in the foreground... It's remarkable to sit and daydream over the unending water and horizon and have it all to yourself like that. I still can't believe it. With that kind of view, you can't go wrong. We had the absolute most perfect weather imaginable too, but I was thinking even IF it rained the whole time we'd be good with walls of windows and ceiling fans in every room to substitute for the sea breeze (IF the weather were an issue.) Good cable television too, we even caught the Game of Thrones season opener on Sunday night, and I will never forget sitting there that night. -So many great memories of our time at this special place... so many details generously considered and ready for us to make a home of it for ourselves... The outdoor living was fantastic around the house, there's a side deck off the master bedroom overlooking of course the sea to the left, but also the neighbor's back lot with horses grazing, goats, the rooster crowing, fascinating iguana of course, birds...
I'll say that we found everything we needed at Solimar and we didn't even know how bad we needed it until we found it. I am so grateful to Maria for making us feel so welcome and for all that she shared.
There really was no second choice for us in Puerto Rico. We had epic drives around the region shopping and discovering restaurants and beaching it... (though we really could have planted ourselves at the house the whole time and had the best vacation ever too!) ...and to the rain forest on the other side of the island. As we'd drive we'd consider other condos, hotels, houses, rentals, etc, "Oh maybe we should stay there next time!... but we always came back to this one in agreement. It was just the best- we couldn't have done better.
Owner's Response: It was a great pleasure meeting you. I am so happy you enjoyed yourself and my thanks for this extensive review.
We hope to see you again in the future.
Warm Regards, Maria
