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.

Large Home in Villa Palmira

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at your home February 13-20th 2016 to celebrate my birthday. The home had plenty of room for the eight of us and all the amenities we could ask for. The pool was perfect and the grand kids were in it after breakfast, lunch and dinner. We enjoyed most meals outside under the patio. No insects noticed. The BBQ was put to good use. The adults had plenty of time to relax in the yard. The neighborhood was quiet and safe in a gated community. The beach was a short walk and we spent days enjoying the warm Caribbean waters. The beach chairs at the rental were a nice touch. Most days we had the entire beach to ourselves. After swimming the outdoor shower was a big help. Sam the manager was only a phone call away and answered our questions immediately. He was there to welcome us on arrival. The home was centrally located and allowed us to take day trips to the rain forest, Bio Bay, and Old San Juan. Another special treat was the nature reserve just a short walk down the beach which allowed for hiking and nature sights. We also had easy access to Walmart,Ralph's ans Sam's. Our first night after traveling we were able to walk to a restaurant on the corner for a taste of Puerto Rican food. Thanks again, Sam and the PR Caribbean Beach Haven for a wonderful visit.

Fun family get away, with lots to do near by.

  • 4 of 5

We had a large group traveling, and had a very difficult time finding a rental with enough space, and a pool, or a beach nearby. In this house, we were able to find all of that, and more. The pool was my personal favorite, as it is nice to be able to get up in the morning, and jump in the pool for a swim, or in the afternoon to cool off, or in the evening after a light rain. The teenager, young adult crowd love having the beach so close, less than a minute walk. They said that water was warm, and they had a blast swimming. When they were done at the beach, they could come back to the house, use the outdoor shower out by the pool, and join the rest of us hanging out in the backyard. I would say that we spent a great deal of time in that backyard while we were at the house. We did have a problem with the BBQ not working well the first night we were there, and the next morning I called Sam to let him know. When we returned to the house that very afternoon, there was a brand new BBQ there for us to use. Thanks Sam. There are also a lot of shopping places nearby in Humacao, incluing a Wal Mart, a Sam's, a Walgreens, and many places to eat. There was even a little restaurant/ bar within walking distance of the house. Many hiking places, nice beaches, adventures, etc to be had within a short driving distance. A good place for a get away, with something for just about everybody!!!

Great home for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home is well worth the price. Nice and quiet neighborhood with all of the amenities you'd find in our own home. The pool and patio area was awesome too. No complaints. Sam, the property manager was great to communicate with throughout the booking process, arrival and departure and during the stay.

Highly recommend this home for your family vacation.

Great place for families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 3 families; there was plenty of room for everyone. BBQ and pool out in the backyard. This home is close to everything. The street was very quiet. The beach is very close and it is one of the most beautiful beaches around. Shopping is close by too. I would highly recommend this property.

Privacy in Puerto Rico

  • 4 of 5

Quiet property in a friendly neighborhood with a beach nearby. The outdoor pool is large. If you are not cooking all your meals at the house, it's best to eat at resorts/hotels. The weather and ocean are very warm in PR. Booking process was easy and the manager was helpful.
