Jose treats you like the family you always wished you had. The home is clean and comfortable but the best part about staying here is the introduction to the local community by Jose. He personally takes you to the local food trucks and local restaurants. He shows you around the local town. He is amazing at explaining the culture and vegetation. He is so kind and charming. My only regret is that we didn’t have more time. With Jose, we felt we have a new father.
The location with respect to San Juan is great. A little bit of a drive from the airport but worth it. I am not going to lie: there are some pretty scary roads in Puerto Rico coming from someone who drives in a state with wide, two-lane roads even in the most remote locales, if they are paved. The house is just off of one of these scary roads and it is easy to miss the driveway if you don't know what you are looking for. Luckily, I had GPS and Google Maps, both required for our trip.
I was initially taken off guard when the rental turned out to be an attached apartment to Jose's main house. It didn't feel like I was intruding, though. And having the whole area for the family was a plus.
Accommodations were comfortable and the pool was nice. I had to get used to the coquí, but that isn't the fault of Jose. Papaya, banana and breadfruit trees were right there on the property and the view of the mountains was spectacular. 10 minutes away were shopping and fuel. There are restaurants/bars/food trucks even closer.
I highly recommend this place to those traveling with family, especially if there is more than four people in the group. I have found the cost of hotels skyrocket when you have a group bigger than 4.
The best way to support Puerto Rico now is to go there, and this is a great way to give back, and enjoy at the same time. Very responsive owner. A gated community of many smaller gated communities. the unit is terrific, but the area is not yet ready for prime time. the roads still do not have signage, and its easy to get lost if you leave the area. There are only 3 restaurants on "campus" and not easy to get in to. But the golf is fantastic! BEst kept secret of Puerto Rico. There's limited internet in the area, so thanks to the owner there is good wifi. Just none when you leave the unit. The owner is a professional -- and will take care of any needs.
