Short stay to visit family

  • 5 of 5

This unit is very nice! The manager met me at the airport to deliver my keys etc. There was a written summary of how everything worked and where items like umbrellas etc were. The pool is very nice as well. The view from the patio was beautiful! Everything was provided except food, no need to buy paper towels etc. There was coffee and water in the unit . Would highly recommend staying here. There are one and a half baths plus washer and dryer. Owner even provides blow up mattress plus the sofa sleeper. Everything worked and A/C split system kept unit comfortable. Will use again next trip.

So glad we found this place!

  • 5 of 5

This condo had everything we could have asked for. I was attending a conference at the Rio Mar resort, which you can see from the condo balcony. By renting this condo, I saved hundreds of dollars over the cost of staying at the resort. In addition, we were very comfortable, secure, had a full kitchen, washer-dryer, privacy, independence...what more could you ask? There was even a supply of beverages (i.e. rum, wine, etc.) in the cupboard and the fridge!

Customer service was great. The rental agent, Juan Carlos, was extremely flexible and went WAY out of his way to accommodate our schedule, even arranging to get the keys to us at the ferry terminal in Fajardo after our stay on Culebra, and driving into Old San Juan to pick up the keys when our visit was over.

It's a little hard to find locations in Puerto Rico, but the directions to the condo were clear and easy to follow. The only inconvenience for my husband was that he had to chauffeur me back and forth to the Rio Mar resort. It is not really in practical walking distance, since there are no sidewalks, and the hill is quite steep; however, it's only a 5-minute drive.

I would definitely recommend this property and would certainly stay there again, if I'm ever lucky enough to return!

Thanks so much to Mark and Juan Carlos for making this experience available.

Beautiful view and wonderful breeze

  • 5 of 5

I agree with all other reviews.

It is close to Old San Juan, Luquillo, Farjardo Kiosks, the ferry boats to Culebra and Vieques and many other trips we took Most of the time I preferred the breeze to the air conditioner even when it was hot and humid weather. We enjoyed sitting in the terrace looking out at the view and drinking our smoothies and took pictures of the sunsets. A hotel stay would not compare and the price had no hidden costs.

What a Value, What a View!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was quite accommodating! We were amazed with the view and enjoyed the nearby amenities. From the daily Puerto Rican style French toast at Wyndham resort to the tender lobster tail served at popular Richie's restaurant next door, it was all exceptional :).

Travel from San Juan to Rio Grande via the new highway was a snap. And, of course, the El Yunque rain forest setting along with sunny skies and the ocean breeze makes this place an ideal getaway.

Go there !

  • 5 of 5

Everything was exactly as advertised. The apartment has a very nice view on the hotel and beaches. Mark and Juan Carlos were available and very accommodating. Mark gave us some good documentation and advices on things to do and visit. There are many great restaurants in the area and there are also supermarkets close by if you want to shop and cook. The kitchen is full of every utensil you may need to cook. Everything was very clean and we had everything we needed. The apartment is nicely furnished. We felt like home immediately! The residence was kind of empty at the time we went there so it was very quiet and we slept very well ! We did not use the pool but we went to the beach. To go to the beach, we used the parking of the Rio Mar hotel, which was really convenient. We even went there for the new year’s eve. There is a casino and nice restaurants. We warmly recommend this place !! you won’t be disappointed. The only regret is that our stay was too short :(

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but good things to say about this vacation rental experience! The rental process was hassle free. Mark and Juan Carlos were super nice and courteous at all times. The description provided on this site was good but there is so much more to like and for what we paid, it was an awesome deal.

It was real easy to get to the apartment and when we got there, we fell in love with the view. The place was fully stocked and clean. The pool was a big plus and the a/c too because it was hot in the island.

My husband and two kids really enjoyed the trip to PR and appreciate how Mark and Juan Carlos made our stay much more enjoyable.

Thanks!
