This villa was the perfect "home away from home" for our family of five during our visit to Puerto Rico. It was very clean, nicely furnished and well equipped with everything we needed! It was so nice to have a well stocked pantry and kitchen with utensils, plates, pots and pans and appliances that helped us to easily prepare meals. A washer and dryer (especially after our muddy hike in the rainforest). Everything you could think of to have a wonderful day at the beach -- plenty of large beach towels, beach bags, a cooler for beverages, and even sand toys & boogie boards for the kids! Rose and Michael (the owners) even provided things we hadn't thought of like bug spray and aloe vera lotion to soothe our sunburn (many thanks!). The living room was very comfortable for relaxing in the evening. It was complete with all the modern conveniences like a TV with Blue-Ray and Netflix, iPod dock, and WiFi. The best part of the evening was the wonderful ocean breeze that kept the villa cool. Beautiful view from the balcony where we enjoyed our breakfast.
Great location. Villa was just a 5 minute drive from El Yunque Rain Forest and also very central to all of our day trips/adventures (Old San Juan, ferry to Culebra, Zip Lining). Rose was very helpful in providing information about the many activities and restaurants in the area. Upon her recommendation, we had the most delicious meals in Luquillo (great beach there too) and we loved the La Familia Bakery down the road. If you don't want to venture out, there is a great resident's swimming pool right next to the beach - which is close enough that you could walk, but more convenient just to park in the adjacent lot. Beach was nice for walks, sand castle building and boogie boarding. Walk up the beach to the Rio Mar Resort where there is a great swimming pool with a small water slide that my boys had so much fun with.
Overall, we had a fantastic trip, and a wonderful & relaxing stay at this beautiful villa. The owners are the best! So welcoming (thanks again for the thoughtful gift basket)! Very friendly and helpful. Great communication before and during our stay. Whether your looking for the perfect base for your island adventures, or a comfortable place to relax and soak up the sun, I highly recommend this villa!
Thanks again for everything Rose and Michael! We can't wait to start planning our next trip back!
