Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We spent two weeks here during Christmas/New Years. We loved it. The owner promptly answered all our questions through email or phone. The apartment was equipped with everything we needed and more- beach towels, beach chairs, extra toiletries, kitchen utensils, pots, etc.

We would certainly consider coming back:)

Clean, comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I spent a couple nights here on our short trip to PR. The apartment was clean and comfortable and could easily sleep 6 people between the beds and sofas.

There is not alot to do in the direct vicinity of the apartment, however the beach, el Yunque and Old San Juan are very close by. This apartment provided the perfect place to rest our heads.

The utility closet had plenty of bug spray and sunscreen along with snorkeling equipment and towels.

Worth mentioning that if you want to sleep in you should bring ear-plugs... The neighbor's roosters and dogs like to wake up early!

Great location. Great value. Woke to roosters but very quiet other than that. Beautiful home.

Great location

  • 3 of 5

This condo met our expectations. It was clean, in a great location (shopping, things to do, etc), easy to find, with a well stocked kitchen and closet (meaning extra sheets, towels, etc).

The a/c worked well, the bathroom was large, and the sitting room was good. The only negative is there is not cable tv. For anyone with a computer, the wifi works so you can surely watch movies from your laptop.

There was mis-communication getting into the condo the first time. My advice is have the exact address and explicit information to gain entrance BEFORE leaving home. I would stay at this location again if I return to NE PR.

Affordable and a short drive to Luquillo Beach, Fajardo Ferry and San Juan

  • 3 of 5

In March 2016, my girlfriend and I stayed at Dan's Rio Grande condo. The size of the property worked for us, but I couldn't imagine trying to accommodate more than two people. The kitchen and bath were well stocked with dishes, towels, etc, and having a cooler and chairs for the beach was great. The air condition worked great. The hot water was decent in the bathroom but nonexistent in the kitchen.

The condo is located in a residential neighborhood that is extremely "rustic." Not all of the homes are maintained well, and we were awaken every morning by the crow of the neighbor's roosters. Nonetheless, we felt safe. We didn't mind the simplicity of our surroundings since we really only slept and ate breakfast there.

We rented a car from the airport--DEFINITLY rent a car. There's a ton to do in the vicinity of a short drive. Luquillo Beach and several food kiosks are about 15 minutes away. Also, the condo is about 25 minutes from the San Juan where we did a walking tour, played at the casino and partied at Club Brava. In the opposite direction, the condo is a convenient 30 minute drive from the Fajardo ferry to Culebra and Vieques.

Our biggest complaint is that we waited outside approximately an hour after a long flight before Dan arranged for someone to bring us the keys to the condo. Overall, our experience was pleasant.
