This condo unit is located in the Villas del Faro resort, at the top of the small hills of the charming town of Maunabo, in the very south eastern corner of Puerto Rico. Just over 1 hr drive from San Juan airport, Maunabo remains a traditional quiet town protected by the mountains and the Caribbean sea. The first thing you notice is the outstanding ocean view from everywhere. Each room in the condo unit faces towards the ocean, and it is close enough to the shore to hear the breaking waves in the quite nights. With around 1,200 ft2 of internal area and a backyard of 1,100 ft2, you will find this unit very comfortable. The Villas del Faro resort offers a nice pool, a tennis court, and ½ a basketball court. A 10 min walk or a quick drive takes you into the Punta Tuna natural reserve and its beautiful beach named Playa Larga (Long Beach), where sea turtles lay their eggs in the middle of the night. There you can see the impressive lighthouse built by the spaniards at the end of the XIX century. If interested in golf, a short 20 min drive will bring you to two first class golf courses at the Palmas del Mar resort in the town of Humacao to the north of Maunabo. There are a few charming restaurants where you can enjoy the local cuisine in a friendly and casual environment (don’t miss the seafood!). Furthermore, there are multiple options for grocery shopping if you prefer to cook or having a BBQ in your own backyard while enjoying a relaxing view of the Caribbean sea.

Perfect place to stay on vacation
The apartment is in excellent conditions, very comfortable and well equipped. Having the backyard and the BBQ is perfect if you enjoy outdoor cooking with an amazing ocean view and space for your kids to have fun. You can actually pack as if you were going to a hotel. The owner customer service, excellent.
Thank you for your very kind feedback, and for taking such good care of our property during your stay. We look forward to your next visit!
Perfect Relax Getaway
Beautiful place to stay in Puerto Rico. Great views and a nice and clean apartment. The bbq was great for a birthday and it has a decent backyard with a great view. Nice beach. but the water is a little rough. Overall great stay. Thanks !

The owner is wonderful to work with and so friendly! My family and I cannot wait to return! Gorgeous place! Thank you so much!
Wonderful beach vacation
We had a great time on our vacation. Sigfrido is excellent to work with - friendly, responsive to any issues, and willing to answer whatever questions we had. At first we had issues with the Wi-Fi and Sigfrido had a technician out the day after we mentioned it. Things worked great after that (fyi-there is a 4 device max for the wifi).
The beach is gorgeous and very private - there were at most two other groups there but typically we were all alone! We have two little ones and they liked playing in the waves, although the waves/current is strong enough that we absolutely would make sure an adult was next to them in the water at all times. We also had a lot of fun boogie boarding, and there were boards provided. We left some sand toys, and there were beach chairs, towels, and an umbrella. The beach is within walking distance but the complex is set on a big hill so with gear and small children it wasn't realistic to walk. It was nice, though, for an adult to be able to stay behind and then walk down at a later time to join up.
The condo was clean, pleasant, and had everything we needed. It was on the first floor of its building so we had our own small yard (and a hose to spray off sand). We left the patio door open all the time for a nice breeze - there were ants all the time so we kept open food in the fridge, but I think that is just the area. Wasn't a big deal. The complex has racquetball, basketball, 2 pools (one with a kiddie pool) and a fitness center with a couple treadmills, a recumbent bike, an upright bike, and some dumbells. One of the pools was also just big enough to swim laps, although not as large as a standard lap pool. It was great to be able to keep up on the exercising as we stayed for a month.
The view from the complex is very pretty as you can see in the picture; the condo has an ocean view although the other condos were in front of you, which isn't picture perfect, but still pretty.
Once we got used to the area we were able to find whatever we needed in Maunabo - groceries, bakery, restaurants, post office, gas station. There are not a lot of activities available in the area outside the condo - it was mostly a beach vacation. You can drive north about an hour to rain forest, ferry to islands (Culebra), bio bay, etc. There was a large grocery store 20 minutes away (roadside stands on the way -food, smoothies, fruit) and a Walmart further up 30 minutes away. Low-key and peaceful. Thanks, Sigfrido!!
I am glad that you and your family enjoyed your visit!! Thanks for your kind and honest feedback. We will bring an exterminator to address the ants issue with promptitude.
