About Arturo Gonzalez
My name is Arturo González I was born and raised in sunny Miami, Florida. My family is originally from Cuba and also Puerto Rico. I love to enjoy the beautiful beaches and laid back lifestyle from the islands. I am a nurse practitioner by profession and have a very stressful and demanding work life. I purchased this home in 2000 and love to use this home to unwind and embrace a peaceful setting. This is truly an oasis.
Arturo Gonzalez purchased this Villa in 2000

The home was perfect it had everything we needed to make our vacation stay even more better our kids had a blast in the pool. Arturo was more then great with us very helpful and very friendly
Definitely will come again
Arturo's home is very well maintained and had everything we needed for a great vacation. The community itself is very quiet. And the beach is literally steps away from the house. The house has all you need to make you feel right at home. The kitchen is stocked with anything you would need if you decide to stay in and cook. The beds are all very comfortable and there was plenty of bath and beach towels. The pool was a perfect size for our family of four and we spent most of our time there. There is also a grill and plenty of outdoor seating if you want to have dinner outside. The house has so many nice places to sit and relax, both indoor and out. We did walk to the nature reserve right next to the property and that was very nice. Several nights we ate at the kiosks right outside of the community and we enjoyed them a lot. We drove to several beaches as the beach right near the house did have a good amount of seaweed when we were there, but there are several nice beaches within a half hours drive. We also went to the kiosks in Luquillo which have a lot of great dining and shopping options. We highly recommend the drive to Las Vistas Cafe in Fajardo for breakfast or brunch, it is truly a one of a kind experience. And we did go to El Yunque which turned out to be a favorite for the whole family. The hike to the tower was amazing. Thanks Arturo for our stay in your beautiful home, it truly was like a home away from home.
The home is as advertised- lovely furnishings, fully stocked, clean & the pool is terrific. The neighborhood is a bit rough-looking with many houses heavily damaged. It is completely safe & neighbors are friendly. The beach was not usable due to abundance of seaweed, which apparently is common in the area this time of year. It is a bit out of the way, so you will be driving to most places. Make sure you have good GPS because PR roads/exits aren't marked well (or at all in some cases!) Arturo was very responsive & informative about things to do/see while you are in PR.
Thank you for your 5 Star review. I am pleased to know you enjoyed my home as much as I do. Unfortunately, some of my neighbors are still struggling to restore their homes post hurricane Maria. I am very happy you noticed that it is completely safe, and neighbors are friendly. Puerto Rican neighbors a truly the most hospitable and giving people I’ve ever met.
The beach could certainly have seaweed, which is common in the area this time of year. However, on your next visit, I recommend you walk over to the natural reserve next to our neighborhood and cross over the fort and you will see that the beach on the other side of the mountain tends to have less seaweed.
Once again, I thank you for your heart felt words and certainly look forward to having you over once again. You and your family were truly amazing guest.
Thank you, Arturo
We stayed at this beautiful home for a girls week away. The house is very big with room to sit around and chat with each other as well as sit quietly and read. The back yard was the best! Loved evening swims and eating dinner outside. The beach was easy to access, although we were unable to swim. It was a great week
Thank you very much for your review. I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed yourselves in my home. Thank you as well for being wonderful tenants and taking care of my home as it was your own. Hope to host you on your next trip back to Puerto Rico!
Arturo’s home is stunning, the pictures truly don’t do it justice. The private pool was perfect and we spent even more time at the home than planned because of how great it was. We stayed for a full week and had absolutely everything we needed, including all beach necessities. The home is located in a gated community, close to a beautiful nature reserve. It was a five minute drive from Walmart and a grocery store, which was very convenient. We truly didn’t want to leave Arturo’s gorgeous home and would love to stay again in the future.
Thank you for your excellent review and heartfelt words. It is a pleasure to know you enjoyed my home as much as I do when staying there. I look forward to hosting you on your next trip back. Once again thank you for being an amazing guest and taking care of my home as if it were your own.
What I have to say about it!!! It is a beautiful h
Que te puedo decir ... Arturo thank so much for the bottle wine and beer. Your house is so beautiful, clean ,spacious and cozy. No tengo palabras para describir todo lo bonito que fue nuestra estadía en tu casa. Te decoration of the house it was so pretty. I love the art paint you have at the master room lol. I love the house because was so close to the private beach. My kids spent most of the time in the pool. It was a very quiet and safety gated community . Toda la casa está equipada con todo lo que necesitamos. It was plainty toallas, toilet paper, soup, chairs for the beach. Arturo house was so clean and spacious and comfortable for my entire family. We was close to the grocery store and restaurants.
The house location was great for us because we drove 30 minutes to ceiba ferry. The culebra trip was amazing, flamenco beach so beautiful with crystalline turquesie water. I
