Rossidudes' Vacation in Humacao
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.
Thank you for this Beautiful review ! We work very hard to make sure that our tenants have the best vacations possible and to also make them feel like at home. I hope to hear from you guys again in the near future.
Can’t wait to go back!
From the moment you walk in, you feel like you’re home. The house is perfect for a large family vacation away from all the tourist trappings of a hotel. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need to prepare your own meals. Sam, our host, was awesome in accommodating us in every way. We almost always had the beach to ourselves, but it was nice to meet the occasional fellow travelers staying in the neighborhood.
Thank you so much and we’ll be back very soon.
Tip: bring your own yeti cups to enjoy poolside.
Great family getaway with no tourist trappings
We booked this house because it slept so many (even though there are only 9 of us, we wanted bedroom options for teens and families) and because of the pool. As we got closer, a lot of people asked, "Why are you staying in Humacao?" and indeed, it was only because of the house. It turned out to be a great choice though: We got to see much island beauty with none of the tourist trappings of a resort. The house is in a little development. The house directly next door and maybe one or two others are also rentals, but otherwise it is all residents. The people who live there are not as tickled by the beach, so we ended up having that to ourselves the times we walked over. It's startling, looking as far as you can see down a beach in both directions and not seeing any other people! It was wild and natural and beautiful. The development is also in the Humacao Nature Reserve, and taking walks through that each day was a highlight of the trip. It's a beautiful palm forrest with well-marked paths. So all told, I would say the near-rural location is the best part of the rental.
The house itself is good though too. Sam the caretaker is always available with answers and advice, especially on the first day when renters have a million questions. The home is nothing fancy but has everything you need, including strong wifi, and is very comfy. We enjoyed hanging out around the table, in the living room, and especially in the pool. The pool was another highlight of our trip, the 4-year-old ended up getting a lot of water confidence out of her hours spent in there! The pool is kept clean and the outdoor shower was great, not just to wash off but also for the 1-year-old to play in.
We got all of our groceries at the nearby Walmart or Ralph's. There are mall-type shops nearby but we didn't find any cute, local gift shops, and that was fine. We didn't spend extra money! We ate only 4 meals out: One lunch on a day visit to Old San Juan, one lunch at El Yunque, and twice we ate down the street at Restaurante Paseo Playero, which was delicious and featured live local music on the Saturday and the Friday that we visited.
It's about an hour's drive to Old San Juan and also to El Yunque so those were our big excursions, each one taking up a day. I think we may have enjoyed the days we spent just hanging out in the rental even more! We also took an afternoon boat ride with La Paseadora Cruise to Monkey Island and that was a hoot! Highly recommended. Great family vacay!
Enjoyable place to stay
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.)
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
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.
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.
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.
If you drive just 45 minutes you can visit the historic walled fortress city of Old San Juan, the tropical mountain El Yunque Rain forest, and the beautiful Surfing Luquillo Beach(La Pared) which is only a 40 minute drive. Also you can visit the El Faro Lighthouse Museum and Las Cabezas Nature Reserve (bio-luminescent mangrove lagoon). The port town of Fajardo, with it's boats can be hired for sailing/boating, snorkeling/scuba, fishing, and ferries to Culebra and Vieques Islands, which are 5 miles away. Be sure to go out sailing from Fajardo on the luxurious 50' yacht, drink& gourmet lunch included, to the small outer islands for great snorkeling. This part of the island has been visited by many tourists because it has one of the best coral reefs and water clarity in the World!!
