About the property

2 Villa homes on one property. Upstairs 3 Bedrooms/2bath (sleeps 8)

Our vacation home consists of two full units which rent out SEPERATELY. Upstairs is a spacious three bedroom/two bath house which sleeps 8. Downstairs is a two bedroom/two bath house (plus a computer room converted to sleeping area) which sleeps 6. The entrances and parking are separate which ensure privacy.

Our home is a hidden paradise on a mountain top. Find peace and tranquility. Go to sleep with the singing of the famous Puerto Rican 'coqui.' Enjoy a spectacular ocean view, custom swimming pool and large yard. This mountain top retreat is private, peaceful, hidden yet only 2 miles from the freeway, largest marina in PR, stores, restaurants and beaches. You can awe at the neighboring islands you'll want to visit (Culebra, Icacos, Palominos, Isleta Marina, and St. Thomas).

Upstairs is a colorful traditional Mexican style home with high ceilings, hand painted Mexican tiles and rustic furniture. Delight in solid wood furniture throughout the house. Enjoy a 40 foot balcony with a breath taking ocean view. If you enjoy cooking you won't want to leave this spacious kitchen with mahogany cabinets and stainless steel appliances. Last but not least, you'll fight with the others over the guest bedroom with an amazing underwater mural which covers the entire wall and ceiling!

The house downstairs is a modern 2 bed/2 bath plus a computer room converted into an additional sleeping area (rents seperately from this unit). There is a full kitchen, dining area, living room and laundry room. The bedrooms are 12 foot x12 foot with full length closets and mirror doors.

Enjoy a romantic view of the city lights below from your queen-size bed in your air-conditioned master bedroom. The master bedroom has glass double doors to ensure a view of the full moon over the ocean surface. The master bedroom has a private bathroom, ceiling fan, mirror closet, and high ceilings. It also has an attached computer room converted into a sleeping area. (see photos @ 314866)

This Non-Smoking house is one mile from Puerto Del Rey marina, ten minutes from Seven Seas Beach, ferries to Culebra and Vieques and the Fajardo Airport. Luquillo Beach and El Yunque Rainforest are 20 minutes away. There are daily flights from Fajardo to Culebra, Vieques and St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. The Westin Rio Mar and Wyndham El Conquistador Resorts are close by. They offer nightlife entertainment (casinos, restaurants, floor shows, and a championship 18-hole golf course).

It sits on an acre lot with 6000 sq. ft. grass lawn, palm, banana and mango trees, orchids... The neighbors are sparse so you rarely hear a car go by.

This can all be yours at an affordable price. You will not find another bargain like it in Puerto Rico!

About Monica Echaves

My name is Monica and I'm a California native. I am a second grade teacher on an army base. I am a GRCA hobby breeder (golden retrievers). Forced to relocate to San Juan, I decided to rent out my dream home! My husband Milito and I maintain the property ourselves. We are a true Vacation Rental by OWNERS. No rental managers! Please come visit us and see if this home passes your expectations!

Monica Echaves purchased this villa in 2001

Why Monica Echaves chose Ceiba

I came to PR 17 years ago as a DOD elementary school teacher. I worked at Roosevelt Roads Naval station which closed due to politcal controversy. Relocated to San Juan area, I converted my brand new dream home into a vacation rental. I hope others love and enjoy the time that I am unable to spend there. This home offers peace, tranquility, harmony with nature and spectaular ocean views.

A true hidden paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very beautiful, the 3 rooms and beds are very comfortable and the mural of the walls are awesome. The view of the house is also spectacular. The pool is very nice, too. If you are looking for a vacation outside the city but near it, this is the perfect place. The owner Monica is very accessible and Aida the housekeeper is also very kind and available. Also, the owner is a pet lover and she has two cats around the property all the time, so you better be a pet lover, too. Thank you Monica for such amazing house.

Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

So this place is a great gem for getting away from the hustle and bustle of San Juan. The house is much more beautiful in person then the photos can speak for.

Waking up each morning to the beautiful view of the ocean and the tiny islands was something worth the trip for. This house is secluded, so if you are looking to be close to the action, this is not the place for you.

Instead, this is the place to catch up with friends, cook dinner and just enjoy life. Good location of you plan to do the more nature side of Puerto Rico such as Culebra, the rainforest and Luquillo.

All in all, was a great place to relax and enjoy the Island breeze each day.
