About Hector Ortiz

Hector Ortiz is born and raised in San Juan, PR.

Hector Ortiz purchased this Apartment in 2007

Why Hector Ortiz chose Santillana del Mar

You're greeted to an airy and spacious garden apartment with no stairs, balcony access to a beautiful beach and pool and well kept gardens and facilities. Its perfect location allows easy access to San Juan and to all East coast attractions. The beach in front of our property is among the best bathing beaches in the Northeast of Puerto Rico. While public in nature, the location allows ample privacy to residents and guests because the apartment complex has close to 1,000 feet of beach front. One of Loíza's barrios, Loíza aldea, is famous across Puerto Rico because it has been a talent pool for dancers and artisans. Loíza is known as 'La Capital de la Tradicion'- 'The Capital of Traditions'- for its 'bomba' music, traditional Taíno and African dishes, artisans, and distinct culture. Each year there is a celebration in Loíza where people parade around wearing Máscaras de Vejigante. Máscaras de Vejigante are a type of mask made in Loíza. They are made of coconut, and painted in multiple colors. Loíza is known as 'La Capital de la Tradicion'- 'The Capital of traditions'- for its 'bomba' music, traditional Taíno and African dishes, artisans, and distinct culture.

What makes this Apartment unique

As you walk inside the apartment you are intuitively drawn to cross the dining and living area and open the sliding doors that give access the beautiful common landscape that showcase two adult Flamboyant trees, well kept grass and gardens. The 2 parking spaces are a true convenience; one has immediate access to the apartment and the other is just across the driveway facing the apartment. The apartment is beautifully decorated and well maintained; and we place much effort in keeping it in such condition as it is our summer retreat.

                                                              And the property`s location and beach was super.

                                                              Mare. Thanks for your great review. I'm really glad to have made a difference and to be able to host such great guests. Not only were you extra communicative; you were very nice and amenable guests. I'm very appreciative of your gifts such as the Estonian chocolates and liqueur. I feel blessed to greet more and more guests from Europe as time passes. It has helped me convey the Puerto Rican hospitality to friends from far away. Now there are direct flights from Europe to San Juan by Norwegian Airlines your referrals will be very welcome. I hope to be able to see you guys again sometime and send you all a big hug.

                                                              Very nice and exactly as was described and pictured. Clean, roomy and well stocked with neccessities

                                                              We really enjoyed staying at Malibu luxury apartments and would definitely stay again and would recommend to others From the very start Hector communicated every detail and answered every question we had promptly prior to arriving. He met us and went over everything at the property to make sure we were comfortable and gave us some great recommendations for dinner. The property was perfect for relaxing at either the [pool or beach and due to location was easy to get into San Juan or out Fajuardo. The property was everything we were looking for and it did not dissappoint. Thank you Hector for helping make our trip so enjoyable.

                                                              Dear Paula. I loved having your family visit our Puerto Rico and enjoy my private piece of paradise in Loiza. Travelers have plenty of choices when seeking a home base for their perfect vacation and it's a big responsibility to host and give advice to those who trust us. It was a pleasure being able to live up to your expectations. I look forward to having your family back to enjoy our loving island. Best wishes for a wonderful new year.

                                                              The best vacation ever

                                                              my family of six stayed 12 days and had a fabulous time. We had easy access to the pool and the beach all day. The beach is always clean and the water crystal clear. We couldn't ask for a better place to stay. It is a great location with lots of privacy. We located a new restaurant called the Herera fishermen Reataurant that promoted the culture of indigenous Puerto Rico and Loiza. I recommend it to all my closest friends.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thanks for your review. I'm glad that you enjoyed your vacation and our property. It's really a very nice place and it's located at the right distance between San Juan and East coast attractions. We also strive to keep the apartment in great condition for our guests to enjoy while they are on the premises. Thanks again.

                                                              Best stay ever!

                                                              Nat S.

                                                              We had the best stay ever at this rental. The owner, Hector, was very personable and reliable to contact us prior to arriving and during our stay as needed. The rental was plenty of space for my family of five (three kids). The kitchen had everything that we needed to prepare all of our home-cooked meals. The rental had access to three idyllic pools and of course, the oceanfront which was miles of a quiet, clean beach with 80 degree water. The rental is also very safe for many reasons, one of them being that it is in a gated community. The rental was also conveniently located 30 minutes from El Yunque Rainforest, 45 minutes from Old San Juan, and a stone's throw from picturesque towns that we visited often. Great place, great owner, and an amazing island!

                                                              Dear Nat and family. I'm glad that you enjoyed the Malibu Beachfront complex, our apartment and Puerto Rico as a destination. My wife and I sincerely appreciate your kind review and recommendations. We chose Malibu as our summer home because of its beautiful surroundings, closeness to SJ and the mesmerizing North-East attractions. We also enjoy sharing information so our guests can maximize their visit to our enchanting paradise. We were pleased to have you and look forward to a repeat stay in our place. Have a great 2015! Best, Hector

                                                              Beautiful and well kept apartment

                                                              We really liked the place.. The apartment is very well kept, clean, fully stocked (knives were excellent!). The complex itself was not crowded at all. Pool and beach were empty most of the time.

                                                              Hector was absolutely helpful and responsive.

                                                              Thanks again for wonderful stay!
