The condo property is located in the southeast coast of Puerto Rico, in the municipality of Maunabo. It's in a resort called Villas del Faro (google internet), named after the last Spanish-built Lighthouse before Puerto Rico was ceded to the USA by Spain in 1898. The Lighthouse, 5 mins drive is now being restored, and you can visit. The resort features 2 swimming pools, tennis court, basketball court. It's in a hill overlooking Playa Larga on the East, a gorgeous and sparsely visited golden sand beach. On the South side it faces the Caribbean sea, and the valley and river of Maunabo. It has an ample backyard with an impressive view of the sea and the mountains. Perfect for BBQ in the afternoon. Everyone is welcomed, but the place is specially attractive to families on budget. Twenty minutes away in Yabucoa Ralph's Warehouse has all the groceries you'll need. One hour from San Juan allows for 1-day visits. The apartment owner is gay-friendly. (Mas adelante, en espanol).
Espanol: La propiedad esta localizada en la costa sureste de Puerto Rico, municipio de Maunabo. Es un lugar de veraneo llamado Villas del Faro, en referencia al Faro de Maunabo, el ultimo construido por los espanoles antes de ceder Puerto Rico a los EEUU en 1898. El Faro, cinco minutos en auto, esta siendo restaurado y abierto para visitas. Esta en un promontorio con vista hacia el lado este a la Playa Larga, una bella playa de arenas doradas y en estado virgen. Al lado sur se ve el Mar Caribe, asi como el valle y el rio de Maunabo. El apartamento posee un amplio patio con una vista maravillosa de las montanas y el mar. Perfecto para una barbacoa en la tarde. En Yabucoa, a veinte minutos, Ralph’s Warehouse tiene todo lo necesario para suplirse por unos dias. San Juan esta a una hora de viaje en auto, y se puede ir y venir el mismo dia. El lugar es especialmente atractivo para familias con presupuesto limitado, pero todo el mundo es bien recibido, incluyendo hombres y mujeres gays.
Stairs / Escaleras: Although this patio-apartment is on the first floor of the buildiing, the entrance to the building is on the thrid floor. This means you have to go down two sets of stairs to get to the apartment, and go up the stairs to leave the apartment.
Aunque el apartamento esta en el primer piso del edificio, la entrada al edificio esta en el tercer piso. Eso significa que usted tendra que bajar dos sets de escaleras para llegar al apartamento, y subirlas para salir.

We loved our stay at

Thank you for your review. Please do come back!
Gracias y hasta pronto!
Great Winter Escape
We had a great time in Maunabo. Let me start my condo description first. View of the condo/yard was to die for (Caribbean see, mountains and blue sky) , we enjoyed it every morning drinking cup of coffee. Condo is well equipped. We were able to do most of cooking ourselves. Washer and dryer were greatly appreciated (our 3 boys never stay clean). As for the beach, it was wonderful as well. It only takes 5-10min walk to get to soft yellow/orange sandy beach. Beach was very clean with very few people. Every evening we managed to get to the swimming pool, it was very clean and refreshing. There are plenty of local restaurants and street bars/vendor to choose from, if you prefer to eat or drink on a go. Nearest large grocery store is in Yabucoa (Ralph's Food Warehouse) - 20 mins away. Condo is within drivable distance to Tropical Rain Forest, and number of Nature Preserves.
Thank you Luis for allowing us to stay at your condo, we will be back.
Beautiful View! Great Affordable place!
What a great place! Affordable, clean, comfortable beds, beautiful view of the mountains and ocean. Such a quiet location, with chickens to wake you in the morning. Air conditioning in bedrooms only but was all we needed since the breeze was nice coming into the living area. We truly enjoyed sitting in the back fenced in yard in the the mornings and talking into the evenings. Sorry to say we didn't get to check out the pool area as we spent a lot of time checking out the island, but it looked very clean and inviting. We followed Luis directions on our gps and had no problem finding his place. He was so helpful and our booking was fast and efficient and so reasonable to say the least. We even got our deposit back within a day of our departure. We would definately stay again should we return to Puerto Rico. Thanks Luis Santiago and vrbo for such a great experience!!!!
This apartment is just as pictured and had everything we needed. Just so you know, if you have trouble with stairs, the apartment is on the ground floor but you enter the building from the parking lot on the third level and must do 2 flights of stairs to get to it. This was not a problem for us and actually appreciated the exercise. The pool area was nice and a wonderful beach is just across the road down a short path. We loved walking down to the rocks by the lighthouse that is above the beach. During our week-long stay we discovered a great place right across the street from the church on the square to get the best pastries. And on the opposite side of the plaza a place with good pizza. We would definitely stay here again.
Great apartment with fantastic view.
Very pleased with our stay. Wonderful, spacious, well equipped apartment with best location, and a fantastic view. It even has a little garden. Area was nice and clean with lovely swimming pools. Great for families. Higly recommended.
Vacation paradise in Puerto Rico
Off the bat, the view was gorgeous. Mountains on one side, beach on other side facing ocean. Condo was clean, as advertised, very quiet area, up in the mountains. Great for families, couples. After couple days, got familier w roads and stores, and resturants are a short drive away. Definite recommend to friends. Owner always available to answer any questions. If u love nature surroundings, this condo is a winner!
Golf: This place is about 15 miles away from world-renowned Palmas del Mar Golf center in Humacao. It is also about the same distance to the new Chi Chi Rodriguez golf course in Guayama.
