AMAZING! Your stay in paradise...

  • 5 of 5
The property was fantastic. If you want a place to relax and be in the middle of paradise, then this is where you need to be. My favorite thing about this apartment is the open feeling. By opening the doors you are simultaneously living in and outdoors, the beach as one view and the tropical rain forest as the other. I could do dishes with this view all day! The absolute best feature of this property is the breathtaking beach... honestly the most beautiful beach I have ever been to. It is a very quiet beach and I literally had my own private oasis during the week. It was paradise! We were here in mid-March 2014 and this was the relaxing week I needed to recharge and refresh.

The apartment is nicely decorated and fully stocked with all the dishes and supplies you will need. I was pleasantly surprised. We loved making breakfast every morning with this breathtaking view and then eating on the lovely patio. You cannot get any closer to the beach and the location of this apartment is simply perfect. It has two small bedrooms, but it was plenty of space for us, after all, who wants to be inside anyway? The washer and dryer on site was wonderful! We came home with no dirty clothes!

The property is located in a gated community with 24-7 security. They have a pool, tennis and basketball courts. We did not use the pool or the tennis court - why swim in a pool when you are at the beach! But, we did use the basketball court, which is located right in front of the property and looks out onto the beach. There is no better court than one right on the beach. The only down side is that there is only one hoop, but you can play half court!

Just a short walk down the beach is the Wyndham Resort, which has a very small casino, a few restaurants, jet ski rentals (when the guys decides to show up - $60 for 30 minutes for 1 or $80 for 2, 12:30-4:30... most days), and a bar on the beach.

Eat at the Kioskos, those are fun. Amigos is the best grocery store (will show up on your credit card as Walmart so don't freak out - just FYI).

Overall, I LOVE this property and the location is SO PERFECT. If you want to get away from it all and truely relax then this is where you want to be. If you want the city, it's just a short 30 minute drive, no big deal, but trust me, you won't miss San Juan on this beach!

Milton was great to work with, answered questions in a timely manner and everything was very organized. I cannot wait to come back!

Incredible vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and two sons, ages 8 and 6, stayed here and it was just amazing! If you like seclusion and independence and not the hustle and bustle and extra expense of a resort, this place is for you!! We couldn't believe the beautiful beach was a 30 second walk out the back patio - it was truly paradise! And during the week the beach was literally deserted - one day we had it all to ourselves. Milton did mention that starting mid-April the beach fills up a bit more, and on the weekend locals were there, but it never felt crowded.The water was fantastic, the waves mild and safe; my boys had a blast playing in the surf all day.
Milton was responsive and easy to work with - my kids accidentally snapped the paddleboard paddle in half which we felt terrible about - let Milton know right away and of course told him to take it out of our deposit - he was very nice about it. There were no boogie boards, but it was fun to try paddleboarding - really hard!
Don't leave food out on the counter - one day we had tiny ants get into a bag of cereal, but besides that, there were no bugs. Lots of little lizards around, though! Security at the gate felt really safe, but the only downside that happened was one night I left my sons' water shoes out on the patio to dry and the next day they were gone! Really disappointed to have something stolen, especially because it really was a secure, deserted facility. There were a lot of workers there during our stay doing some painting, so maybe it was one of them. Don't know. Not a huge deal - our fault for leaving them outside, I guess.
As far as activities, the location of this property was IDEAL!! The rainforest was a 15 minute drive away with great hikes and waterfall pools to swim in. We spent a day in Old San Juan and El Morro which the boys just loved! The kioskos at Luquillo are a must - Ceviche Hut was great. We did a snorkeling excursion with East Isle Adventures - just a 30 minute drive to Fajardo - that was amazing and the snorkeling was incredible!
We just had a fantastic trip all around and would definitely come back, even despite the stolen shoes!!
One thing to be aware of, Puerto Rican drivers are CRAZY!! Seriously, things that would illicit major road rage stateside are commonplace - especially around San Juan. If you think someone is about to cut you off, they are. If you think they're about to ignore that stop sign, they are. Just be hyper vigilant and don't get mad! It's the laid back island lifestyle, I guess!
