Absolutely Beautiful!

Review submitted: June 2, 2014 Date of arrival: January 21, 2014

What a beautiful home! The pictures do not do it justice; it is even nicer in person. The home and beach (which is steps away) are absolutely beautiful. Very quiet and nice community. The beach is almost private. This was our first trip to Puerto Rico and we really enjoyed ourselves, there is so much to see and do. The people are so friendly, the island is beautiful and the weather is perfect! The home is very clean and has plenty of space to relax and enjoy both inside and out. Norma is the sweetest person in the world! We got lost coming from the airport late at night and after driving around for hours we finally called Norma at 4am!!! Norma answered right away and stayed on the phone with us until we were at the home and inside. We definitely recommend this home for your Puerto Rico vacation and cannot wait to go back again ourselves! Thank you again Norma!

Beautiful home by the beach

  • 5 of 5

I spent Thanksgiving with my family at this house and we had a wonderful time. The house is clean, comfortable and fully stocked with everything you can think of. The owner has thought of the smallest details to make your stay enjoyable - everything from toiletries, to kitchen utensils, pots & pans, coffee pot, beach chairs & towels, suntan lotion, even aloe vera in case you stay out in the sun too long! :-) The pool is great, they have a big bbq grill you can use (which we did), they have DVD's you can watch...the list goes on and on. There is a TV in every bedroom which is nice if you need a 'break' away from everyone. The neighborhood is very quiet, the beach is literally steps away. I recommend this house to anyone who is looking for a nice home away from home during their vacation.

Peaceful, Comfortable, Stress-free Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent the best time ever while visiting family. We enjoyed the peaceful, comfortable and stress free you expect while visiting the Caribbean. Great accommodations, well equipped kitchen, beautiful beach front landscape and most importantly, great communication with the homeowner. Mrs. Rosado was very accommodating and helpful. My husband and I will definitely book this home again. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Norma is very easy to deal with and has a great house. From my first email to Norma, she was very quick to respond and provided answers to all of my questions. Her house is in great shape! It has marble tile floors, redone bathrooms, a beautiful kitchen to cook in, a nice backyard with a pool and a bbq grill to cook on. Her couches are comfortable to sit on, her beds are easy to sleep in, the bedroom with the bunk beds and twin mattress are great for kids, she even has bed guards to keep them from rolling out of bed. The other two bedrooms have nice comfortable queen beds with the master bedroom having a good sized master bath attached. There is a bathroom with standing shower located in the back of the house, with immediate access to the pool, which makes tracking water into the house less of a hassle. She has a stereo with caliente music hooked up so that you can play music out at the pool or in the house (nice touch).

It is an easy walk to the beach (2 minutes) or nature reserve 10 minutes. Both of which are worth seeing. There are a lot of iguanas, geckos and birds hanging out in the nature reserve and easy to see. We heard some monkey's which were we not able to see. They apparently come from monkey island, which is a 45 minute kayaking ride from shore and has people available to guide you around if you so choose (you have to stay in the kayak). The beach is a little short but has a nice shaded area under coconut trees which was perfect to hide out from the sun. The air temperature was about 74 (at night) 84 degrees (during the day) and very comfortable. Water temperature about 79. We were worried about rain, the forecast was for 50% showers everyday, but the showers were very brief and usually occurred late afternoon or evening.

Humacoa has all the conveniences of home; Sam's club, Wal-mart, JcPenny, Marshalls, CVS, Walgreens, Chilis, Burger King, Wendys, Taco Maker, and a hospital that specializes in pediatrics (our child got sick and needed to take them to one).

Punta Santiago, which is even a little closer, has a neighborhood grocery and fish market (very good local fish) that weren't as glitzy but probably all you need for your stay.

I appreciate the reviews that others posted prior to coming which is why I've posted such a long one.

We've been to Puerto Rico several times before, but wanted something more authentic this trip around and are glad we stayed at Norma's. It gave us a nice less touristy view of the country.

Spectacular! Beautiful! Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do it justice! The house is beautiful and has everything you need for the perfect vacation. We had a large group of 10 and fit very comfortably. We were all sad when we had to leave. Its a great location close to the best activities. We are planning to come back next year and stay here because 1 week just wasn't enough! The owner was very attentive and quick responses whenever we had questions. Trouble free week in beautiful PR! Loved it!

House should be named !!Casita Perfecta!!

  • 5 of 5

It's all been said in the other reviews...and I can vouch for all the nice things people are saying. Yes, the home really is a hidden gem in a quiet beach front community. The only complaint I could make is not spending two weeks there instead of one.

Ocean view on the front porch with the morning coffee.

100 meters or so walk to the beach.

We loved the private pool.

Sea turtle nest almost within view of the home.

300 meter beach walk to the nature reserve.

200 meter walk to three great local cantinas.

6 hour long happy hour and 90 cent beers at said cantinas!

45 minute drive to most any attraction on the east side of the island.

Owner Norma was a phone call away, and great to work with.

We felt like we were at home the minute we arrived.

Thank you Thank you, Muchas Muchas Gracias to you Norma!

Owner's Response: It gives me so much satisfaction to see this lovely review. Thank you very much! I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay in my property. Everything is truly very conveniently located. I am glad that you mentioned the sea turtle nests. For future tenants, as you may read in a previous review there sometimes tends to be seaweed in the beach at walking distance from the house. We do not clean the seaweed off because even though it may be bothersome for us it is the perfect environment for these beautiful animals to lay their eggs and the sea is their home so we must respect it. It is a wonderful experience to see this phenomena and I wish that all of you were able to see it. You are always welcome in my properties and once again, thank you!
