Perfect location and condo!

  • 5 of 5

My family with three teenage children spent one week is this condo and we had the best vacation ever. The condo is less than 50 steps from a wonderful beach. It is fully equipped with all kitchen items you might need, has beach chairs, boogie boards, and a barbeque grill. We picked up fresh coconuts every day, just steps from the porch. Most condos in the complex are empty during the week, so the beautiful beach is very quiet and empty. The condo is very clean, the beds are comfy, and you can sit on the nice porch with the beach right in front of you. Good restaurants and a grocery store are 5 min away by car. The owners were very helpful with questions we had before we came. I can highly recommend this apartment and we definitely want to go back!

Couldn't ask for more!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is immaculate and well-stocked with everything you could possibly need. Gorgeous private beach that you feel like you have all to yourself Sunday-Thursday. (But still isn't very crowded on weekends!) Owner is very friendly and accommodating, and easy to get in touch with. Río Grande is the perfect place to be when you don't want to feel like a tourist. Tons of things to do right nearby, and an easy drive to San Juan, Luquillo, Fajardo, etc. I could go on all day, but let me summarize with this---it'd be a bargain at twice the price. We will absolutely return and would stay in this condo again for sure!

Excellent, clean, comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment with comfortable bed in the master and well equipped kitchen. Has a shady, useful patio, quiet beach steps away and great location close to everything on the NE side of Puerto Rico. Very nice and responsive owner. We really enjoyed it and plan to come back. Two minor (very minor) quibbles - the living room furniture is not the most comfortable for lounging, though really, we didn't mind, and the two beds in the smaller bedroom were covered with a plastic waterproof mattress pad that was uncomfortable and hot. Overall a terrific experience and these were very minor improvements that could be made. Highly recommend!

Great option for families! 4.5 stars!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Elio and Maria's condo. The location is perfect - 2 minute walk to a beautiful & clean beach. The condo has everything you could possibly need - beach towels, chairs, coolers, sand toys, washer&dryer, etc. In addition, everything was clean and dry (which is hard to maintain for a beach rental!). I also liked there was a patio with gas grill and awning, ceiling fans in the common space and screening on all the windows/doors. Our 2.5 yr. old daughter just loved her time there. We took advantage of the cross-breeze and hardly turned on the AC. At night, the temperature fell to a perfect 72 degrees. With the windows open, we could fall asleep listening to the waves! The only reason I didn't give this 5/5 stars is because the directions from airport to condo could be improved (highway signs didn't match directions from owner) & the door code didn't work upon arrival. Both issues can be remedied easily; we would be happy to come back again in the future for another stay if the owners would have us.

Owner's Response: Thanks Prateeksha for so wonderful comments, we appreciate that you and your family selected our property for your stay in Puerto Rico. Be sure that you can count with us if you decide to return to PR in the future. We give the baby clothes to a Dominican Republic poor family, they thanks you. Thanks again, Elio and Maria

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this wonderful condo! This ground floor unit is just steps from the beach and you can see the water and hear the waves from the large outside terrace. Elio and Maria were great hosts and available at any time to help recommend restaurants, etc. Please note bedroom #2 has 3 twin beds that each sleep one person, not a full bed as described. Other than this, everything was as described and we would highly recommend this condo to others looking for a quiet beachfront location.

A quiet retreat, as good as our luxury cruise

  • 5 of 5

We had five nights between the end of a cruise and our return to the UK. We wanted to avoid the usual San Juan extension and do something more local. This area, and particularly the apartment, were a fantastic choice.

While I wouldn't have given up the cruise, the five leisurely days in Elio and Maria's two-bedroom, ground-floor place in Casa Del Mar were just as special, in their own way. I could easily see spending two weeks here. There was none of the characterless feel you often get from holiday rentals; the place was beautifully and comfortably furnished, complete with original paintings on the walls and cheerful, tropical colour schemes. Internet, cable TV (a bit dodgy on the connection), air conditioning and ceiling fans let the husband lounge without fear of sunburn, while I could take to the patio furniture, with sea views, or walk across a short stretch of exquisitely maintained lawn to be on the beach.

The complex sits on a beautiful small bay, with short walks in either direction tipping backwards to other bays and other views. It's the Atlantic on this side of the island, so the surf and clarity are more like Florida than the Caribbean, but I was happy.

It wasn't very crowded until New Year's Eve, but the people who were there were all families quietly going about their own business. Everyone was exceptionally friendly and mostly native Puerto Ricans. Evidently most Americans from the mainland hole up in the Wyndham resort and rarely come out. What a waste! Our next door neighbours even brought us a plate of traditional food on New Year's Eve so we could have the local holiday experience, and everyone was quick with local restaurant and shopping recommendations.

This is a really exceptional location. The Casa Del Mar complex is very quiet, and exquisitely maintained. The lawns and gardens are exquisite. It's down a back road ... feels like the middle of nowhere, especially at night when the coqui frogs start up and it sounds like you're deep in the jungle. Despite feeling remote, however, you're well connected by fairly good roads and there's lots to do. You're in El Yunque rain forest in 20 minutes and Fajardo is just up the road, from where you can do deep sea fishing, catch ferries to outer islands, etc. And when it came time to leave, we were at San Juan airport in 45 minutes. Took us longer to check in than to get there!

I'm writing this from cold, gloomy England, and really wishing I were back at Elio and Maria's now!
