Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, property sleeps 6-12 (No US Passport Required*)

Experience the peace and tranquility of beautiful Puerto Rico's stunning north shores. Just 25 miles west of San Juan, 'Chalets de la Playa' is the perfect family getaway vacation resort. Its beach enjoys the enchantments of a vibrant marine life in its full natural coral reef karsts habitat (ideal for kids' exploration, scuba diving, snorkeling, and fishing), as well as natural private pools where folks can swim, bathe, play, or just plainly relax and bask in the sun. All within a half-mile stretch of private sandy Caribbean beach, smack in front of the complex. If unfettered open beach swimming is your preference, take a leisurely walk along the beach (or 5-min drive) to the east, where you'll find one of the most spectacularly beautiful public beaches in all Puerto Rico: Punta Puerto Nuevo Beach, where you'll get a flavor of the local folklore and flair of the regular weekend crowds. (**Upon initial contact you’ll be given access to a private link to a more informative video on the property.**)

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The beach, pool and jacuzzi were steps away from the condo unit. The unit was clean and comfortable. The owner supplied me with a folder full of travel tips and directions to different points of interest which was of tremendous help. Perfect and I look forward to future stays at this unit !!!

Great location, food near, excellent communication

  • 5 of 5

This was the best HomeAway experience I've had. The homeowner had a thorough checklist and quick and efficient communications. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

THE VIEW: The view from the 3rd floor was incredible all day! The sun rises over the unique Playa Puerto Nuevo, the ocean and palms are gorgeous throughout the day, and even on a rainy day, you can sit at the rooftop bar and stay dry. You can also see horses and chickens wandering through the vegetation in the lot next door!

THE LOCATION: I would suggest renting a car to get here from SJU and to get around. It is about 30 to 45 minutes from the airport. There are many great restaurants and bars nearby (try the mofongo!) but most require a car to get to. Nearby attractions include Camuy Caves, Gozalandia waterfall (where my boyfriend proposed to me!), Old San Juan, Bacardi Distillery tour, many beaches, other caves... the list goes on. The rainforest of El Yunque is about 1.5 hours away, and Catamarans sail out of Fajardo, near the rainforest. Side note: If you think a restaurant looks like a hole-in-the-wall, it is probably a gem! Everywhere we went, the food was incredible.

THE AMENITIES: The homeowner really has thought of everything. Even down to having backup equipment in case something doesn't work properly. Towels and linens were provided, beds were made and limited beach equipment was available. There are lots of stairs, for those who prefer not to climb. But I had no problem! 2 flights to the apartment and 2 more to the rooftop terrace.

SECURITY: You have a key fob to get in and out of the complex and there is a 24/7 security guard at the gate. There is a wall around the complex. We all felt very safe here, as well as throughout the island.

THE BEACH: was GORGEOUS! And very private. We visited during Holy Week and thought the place would be packed. Thankfully it was not. The beach is rocky and not really good for swimming, but some locals showed us a hidden break in the rocks where there was a large flat area for swimming in the waves without danger. Bring water shoes if you want to swim here. There is also a beach called Los Tubos about a 5 minute drive to the west that has strong waves and very few rocks. Must be a strong swimmer!

OVERALL: I could not have been happier with the service we received and the suggestions from the homeowner. Thank you for a memorable stay!

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from staying here 7/5-12 and we could not be happier with this house. It was a great place to come to after spending most of the day doing different activities.

All the amenities were great and enjoyed by the family, especially the pool and the terrace! We'd go up there every night!

David was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Any concerns or questions we had, he always answered right away.

When we go back to visit family in Puerto Rico, we are definitely going to stay here again!!

What a wonder place to stay in Puerto Rico!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time booking for an entire month at a time, and to say we were slightly apprehensive is an understatement. Let me just say up front, that this was one of the best overall booking experiences we’ve ever had! From our initial contact with Dave and all through the entire stay, Dave made certain that we were comfortable and was always available to answer any questions or concerns. Dave provide an information packet with information on places to see, dining and directions on getting around that you normally wouldn’t find in the guide books. Check in and check-out were flawless thanks to Dave’s communication and follow up.

The rental condo was just as described in the booking site, and actually the pictures don’t fully do it justice. From the spacious Living room, terrace, kitchen to the bedrooms and the gorgeous rooftop deck the unit always felt roomy and comfortable. We loved the spending time up on the rooftop deck and especially the barbecue. Having a sink, refrigerator and bathroom up there was wonderful. The views from the rooftop were gorgeous. Also if you enjoy sunbathing, there is plenty of privacy. We had visitors staying two out of the four weeks, and the condo never felt cramped. Plenty of space.

There is a well stocked supermarket about a short 10 minutes away, which made it very convenient to obtain groceries and supplies. My wife loves to cook, and the kitchen was well equipped. We actually ate out much less than we expected.

The pool is about a minute and a half away and the beach is about a three minute walk. The pool was always clean and never crowded. At the most we saw maybe 2 or 3 families at a time at the pool. The beach is great for long walks and watching sunsets. If you plan on going in the water, rock shoes are a must as the beach is rocky with a lot of coral. There’s plenty of space for lying out by the beach. Also the beach was never crowded either. If you do plan on swimming in the ocean, there’s a very nice public beach just minutes away.

From the manicured lawns to the landscaping, the grounds in the complex are impeccable. The gated complex itself is very secure, with a wall surrounding the entire area and 24 hour security, we always felt safe. The neighbors were also very friendly.

This is our fifth visit to Puerto Rico, and overall, I would not hesitate to return to Vega Baja and Dave’s condo.

Beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was beautiful, clean and surpassed my expectations! David was very detail oriented during the entire process. The pool, spa and beach are within a short walk from the unit. My personal favorite part of the condo was the beautiful rooftop terrace. The views and privacy from there are breathtaking! I never felt unsafe in the complex. It was quiet, enjoyable, and allowed for a very relaxing vacation! I enjoyed the folder David put together with local eateries and sights to see. If you are looking for a spacious place to stay, I would recommend this place! The views and service are sure to exceed your expectations!

Relaxing Puerto Rico Condo

  • 5 of 5

From the introductory email to the moment we checked out, I knew we had made a great choice in booking this condo. This was the first time I had used any kind of rental service (normally just stay at resorts/hotels) and I was a bit nervous; turns out I worried over nothing!

David is top notch when it comes to customer service. Before we had even chosen the property and just sent an inquiry regarding the condo, David walked us through the process step by step, and was incredibly thorough in his explanation of payment, checking in, and checking out.

Myself and three others were quite comfortable and felt as though we had more than enough space to ourselves. It is worth mentioning for those with children, that the property is located on the third floor (just a short flight of stairs up) and within the condo is another two sets of stairs (it is also three stories). Child safety gates were in the condo.

The condo is a very short walk (2-5 min) to the beach; no busy roads to cross, just a pleasant stroll along a pathway in the complex. The beach isn't super swim friendly, but was quite private. The highlight of the condo is its rooftop; definitely take advantage of its grill and cook out a few nights!

I can't comment on the complex's pool or workout room as we did not have the chance to visit, but they are very close by (maybe a minute's walk or less). The complex itself is clean and well-monitored. Definitely rent a car if you plan on doing any kind of sight-seeing.

What an awesome first time visit to Puerto Rico - thanks David!
