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.

  • 5 of 5

5 stars is not enough, this beautiful house has the perfect location it's very clean and has everything you need. It totally exceeded by expectations. It's just a few feet away from the most beautiful beach witch also has sea turtles. Need I say more.

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!

Good location, secure, clean and accommodating

  • 5 of 5

This place was great for our family to meet. We did a lot of activities while in Puerto Rico and most were within 30 minutes to 1 1/2 hour drive. This kept us out of the main tourist hub, with shopping near by for our everyday needs. It was great to be able to get up in the morning and walk to the beach and to the Humacao Nature Reserve. The gate at the front of the property kept people from wondering into the community, but did not restrict our activities. I would recommend this property to anyone and would stay again. The only small downfall, was that we indicated that we had 4 occupants and there was sleeping for 12, and the third bedroom had 3 beds in it. which made it very crowded and claustrophobic for that person so she slept in the living room. The bunk bed would have been sufficient. Even with that, I think this place was wonderful!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your wonderful review. I am glad that you and your family had a good time in the property and enjoyed the location! I'm sorry to hear that the accommodation to one bedroom was not preferred by you.Almost all tenants come in large groups so I try to fit as many people as possible without making the house over crowded. Anyways, thank you very much for choosing my property and you are always welcome back!

Very nice House, well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

This house was well maintained and very family oriented, as good as advertised. It is furnished quite well and has a really nice quaint pool that my two little daughters enjoyed every day of our stay, the private pool was a hit. We were a party of six, 4 adults and two children and the house was more than enough for us, but if there was more people in our group, you might feel a little cramped. The gated community is very quiet, and some of the houses are very nice, but other houses in the communtiy look like they have been affected by the island's economy, rather unfortunate but did not take away anything from our stay. The ocean is only 50 yards away but it is not a beach that I would recommend swimming in, surf and undertow was a little rough (definitely not for children) and the beach was covered by seaweed but you actually could walk up the beach trail to a swim park and beach that was better maintained. All in all, we did enjoy the location and house and would stay there again. The owner did provide good customer service and was very responsive to any questions I had

Owner's Response: Thank You very much for taking the time to write a review on my property. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. I don't know why you would say that the house would be crowded for a larger group because many, many families of up to 12 people have stayed very comfortably in the house as you can read in many other reviews. There are beds for 12 people. Regarding the beach, it all depends on the time of the year that you come. For future tenants please keep in mind that because it is sunny it doesn't mean that we don't go through winter as well as in the states. During the winter months all beaches are rough and there is a tendency for seaweed to pile up. Regarding the houses, just like everywhere else there are some people who unfortunately do not have the means to constantly fix their homes. There are also other houses that that belong to the elderly or people who have passed away and there is no one to take care of them. Many have been bought and we are in the process of fixing the few homes that are like this. I am glad that you and your family had a good time. I hope to hear from you in the near future.
