What a wonderful vacation! This was our second visit and everything was great. Frankie and Dorisa are marvelous hosts who will go above and beyond for you.
Of course we will be back for Christmas 2017!!!
Our family of 5 stayed mid-June. Frankie was very easy to work with and met us at the condo. The condo was a perfect size and cost and the views were fabulous. It was an easy walk along the beach to the area that had waves. The swimming beach was by the kiosks and best reached by car. (But we walked the first time we went-- can be done, but hauling stuff was the issue). We loved the location in Luquillo. The kids (aged 5-12) loved the beach just in front of the condo. They had a great time in the sand and snorkeling along the sea pond. Here in Luquillo, we felt like we were getting a more authentic taste of PR, rather than a tourist destination. Quiet family area. Also, very convenient to the rain forest, Fajardo, and even back to airport and San Juan.
I highly recommend the travel book PUERTO RICO by Van Atten and Moon publishers. It had wonderful suggestions for activities and restaurants. We had a great time at the Las Pailas, if you have time. (Las Playlas-- local spelling was different than book). Fun waterfall play area that is off beaten path and with the locals.
By far this is the best experience my family and I have had. Frankie and Dorisa really took the time to make sure you have everything you need providing many amenities. The location and beach area is perfect for families. Those with young ones do not have to worry about their little ones while older children can take a short walk to the right and boogie board. The location is perfect for those who want to utilize the marina in Fajardo, El Yunke, and the kiosks. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us we truly had an amazing trip!
From the start of corresponding with Frankie and Dorisa, this has been a wonderful experience. They are kind, accommodating people and their condo is perfectly located. While it may have been the time of year, we felt like the only people on the beach most of the time. The weather was great and we frequently took out the boogie boards, beach balls, kayak that come with the condo. The place was impressively clean and well-equipped. We loved relaxing on the back porch over looking the ocean or playing games inside. All beds were comfortable and our group of 5 slept great. I couldn't recommend this place or Frankie and Dorisa more. We loved our first trip to Puerto Rico and will definitely be back!
This was our third visit to PR, and once again it was a wonderful and relaxing vacation for our family. We really enjoyed the boogie boards and huge assortment of other beach items. There are lots of beach towels and all the dishes you need. The huge covered porch is amazing. Proximity to the ocean can't be beat.
We are giving it 3 starts for the following reasons:
1-As others have said, the beach directly in front of the unit is so reefy, you really can't swim or even snorkel. It is less than a foot deep for a very wide section and covered in sea grass. You can go about a mile to the left for an awesome swimming beach (La Monsaratte) or a mile to the right for awesome waves (La Pared). We thought it was way too far to walk with kids and lugging a bunch of gear, so we loaded up the car every day to swim or boogie board. The ocean kayak is really cool, but again, you can't really put it in the ocean in front of the unit because of the very shallow sea grassy area. 2- There is a lot of graffiti in the area, and people hanging around late into the night close to the unit, which made us feel a little uneasy.
3- For the first time ever (after 15 VRBO rentals!) we did not receive our full deposit back. They kept out $100 because the white towels were dirty! Kind of a downer after a nice relaxing vacation.
We stay and this property in April 2016 and it was even better than described. The view is amazing from the patio and the beach is right at your front door. We miss our morning and evening walks on the beach greatly. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning at night was a plus. We were looking to be somewhere quite and on the beach and this place was amazing for this purpose. We hope to return some day. Thank you for sharing your property with us.
