Rossidudes' Vacation in Humacao

  • 5 of 5

Upon arriving, we were greeted by Norma, the property manager and her daughter. She gave us a very thorough tour of this beautiful home. As we began to settle in, we noticed there was no coffee maker. We placed a quick call to Norma and she brought over what appeared to be a new coffee maker. Very quick response time. Later on in the week, the property owner stopped by and introduced himself. He did a walk through of the property to make sure things were in order to our liking. Just about every room has built in air conditioning units that are controlled via remote controls. In one of the bedrooms we had a malfunctioning air conditioner. Again, we placed a call to Norma and later that same day, she had several people at the home installing a brand new air conditioning unit. There were a few locks around the property that we didn't have keys for. New keys were provided for everything upon request! We had a need for an additional clicker for the gate to enter the neighborhood. Norma provided us with a second clicker with no questions asked! There were even a few occasions where I called Norma accidentally from my cell phone and hung up before the call was connected. She actually took the time to call me back!!

For my wife, son and I, this was our first vacation where we just relaxed and enjoyed family. This home was very spacious and my wife who uses a wheelchair was able to maneuver around most of the home in her chair. We had 10 of us altogether in the home and everyone had a place to sleep. The bunk beds and pull out trundle bed made it somewhat "cool" for the younger kids. The home itself was in pretty immaculate condition.

We were literally steps from the beach and took several strolls from the house to the beach.

The pool on the property was an L shaped pool and on the long part of the L, the depth got to 5ft. The short part of the L was between 2-3ft. My 5 year old old son quickly learned and understood his limits. This pool will be special to us because our son learned for the first time how to hold his breath underwater!

The home was conveniently located to take entire day or even afternoon/evening trips to various places including Old San Juan, Fajardo, Luquillo, etc.

If I had to sum things up in a few sentences it would be as follows. Our extremely memorable family vacation was made even more amazing by having an amazing property to stay in while we were there. We felt cared for and had a great time.

Enjoyable place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious, up to date and clean property. We enjoyed the pool. As issues arose, they were taken care of swiftly. Quiet neighborhood, unfortunately the area to access the beach is very dirty and unkept. The shore line did not look like what is pictured (which is no reflection on the homeowner though.)

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed your stay and apologize for the entrance to the beach. There are many weddings on the beach and unfortunately some of them dont clean the area as are in our rules. ( The last one being the week before you arrived) Furthermore what we have done to resolve this situation is put stricter rules in place for weddings done at the beach and hired a newer clean up crew to clean the beach regularly in order to.avoid such situations as we like to keep our beach clean. This time of year seaweed draws on shore which is not something we have control over but most of the year the shore line is just like our photos. We hope to see you soon

I would stay here again

  • 4 of 5

I traveled to Puerto Rico for my daughter's 16th birthday. Altogether there were 16 Of us and the house accommodated all of us and then some. There was even a baby chair and play pen for my niece which was a huge plus. The pool was great and definitely went to good use as the kids were in there every chance they got. The kitchen was well equipped, so that saved on having to buy cups, plates,utensils, etc. The beach is literally steps away as described and the view is beautiful. Sometimes I am a little sceptical about booking things online but I was in touch with Sam days and weeks before our trip just to make sure we were all on the same page. And I'm neurotic like that lol. Sam was available all the time which was great so that made me more comfortable. Overall we all had a great time and would definitely come back and stay at this home.

My niece 50th celebration/family vacatiion.

  • 4 of 5

We went to PR for my niece 50th BD celebration. Was her wish to go and ride a horse on the beach which she did and loved it. We stayed in this nice home, due to the fact she loves the beach and said 89 steps from beach. The house was very comfortable and cleaned. We had one minor problem, I called and was taken care the next day without any difficulty. Management was nice. Every where we wanted to go was an hour away due to the GPS. We did get to visit family we had not seen in 52 years. Over all loved that we got to spend family time in this house and lots of laughs. The only down fall of our trip was the rain, rained for 5 days out of the 9 we were there. I strongly recommend this house for large families with young kids. The Conde/Cruz/ Aguila family.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking time out to write a review for us. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us as this is our primary goal for any one to stay with us. We are very sorry for the little inconvenience that we were able to fix right away. Although we do everything that we can, to ensure that everything works properly sometimes things come up when you have such a large property that accommodates so many people. 90 percent of the tourist attractions are within 22 mins away however if you input addresses as apposed to locations in PR it is easy to get lost. Unfortunatly in the caribbean during certain months it rains more frequently than others but at least since we are in tropics rain only lasts for 20 mins. We look forward to having you as our guests again. Sincerely Sam

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This vacation property is well maintained and flexible for larger groups and families, but I think the best part about it is it's location. There are miles and miles of trails and beaches within walking distance. The nearby nature preserve is amazing. When you've done all of that, it's great to relax by the pool back at the house.

Great home

Great house, and very good location for our needs. The private beach was a little dirty, but other than that it was an awesome stay. Sam was very helpful.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time out to write a review. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are very sorry about our beach as there was a wedding there before you arrived and they failed to clean up as they were supposed to. If we had been informed then.we would have gladly cleaned it for you. Needless to say our beach is now clean as it is normally. Our beach as well as the environmemt are very important to us. We look forward to seeing you soon. Sincerely Sam
