Jeannette Rizek purchased this apartment in 2004
I had good friends in the neighborhood, which is not far from San Juan, and found the area so attractive with the beaches, rain forest and other natural beauties. It is surrounded by hotels, restaurants, a variety of beaches and more.
The project is good looking, secure, well maintained, accessible to many nearby attractions and beaches, and it is spacious both inside the apartments and in common areas. With this rental I try to facilitate access into the Wyndham Rio Mar resort Beach Club beach area, but this cannot be guaranteed because the hotel has recently changed its access policies.
Janette the host is an incredibly sweet and helpful person! The apartment is perfectly located near el Yunque, Luquillo beach and the food kiosk at Luquillo!
The apartment has an adorable beach look and feel with air conditioning and an adorable terrace--please bring OFF--too many mosquitoes. The only things is the apartment needs to be aired out a bit more and needs some maintenance and up-keeping. The bathrooms are a bit deteriorated and you must bring all kitchen needs if you are staying for a few days. The pool was perfect and you get 2 parking spaces. Perfect for a group or family stay! Thank you Janette for your hospitality!
After traveling around the world I had the opportunity of rediscovering the eastern part of Puerto Rico with my visiting family. The condo was spacious enough for my sister ,husband, nephews and my husband and I. We enjoyed the cleanliness, the big and open kitchen. Having a BBQ on the patio was great. And being able to wash some clothes while there was very convenienta .Since we stayed during week days the time we had the pool ,which was a three minute walk away ,was mostly for ourselves.
The condo is a small hop away from El Yunque , Luquillo beach and its kiosks ( go to La Parrila restaurant number 1 at the kiosks, we went twice)and we were able to get tickets to Culebra ,Flamenco(a must)which was much better than driving all the way from san juan to do so.
I would say the only drawback for visitors is you have to drive to get to the beaches and anywhere else. And there is no ocean view. We felt quite safe there and the guards were welcoming and friendly.
Jeannette was very kind and available for questions. She had many extras at the condo. beach towels, beach cooler and even some kitchen condiments which came in handy .
It had been three years since my sister had visited and Im quite happy she enjoyed her stay and they were able to enjoy the best of the east of the island. Great price all and all.
The owner communicating with us during our stay with questions we had. She was fantastic! The apartment was clean and had everything we needed for our week's stay. The patioThe complex was safe and the staff made you feel welcomed. The pool, tennis court and basketball area was clean, and ready for use daily. The hot tub wasn't hot but the kids enjoyed hopping in and out. The location to shopping, Luquillo Beach and El Yunque was great! We would definitely stay here again.
Jeannette was a wonderful host. The condo is very spacious we were 8 and we were very comfortable. It's close to el Yunque (about 10 mins) and to supermarkets/bakeries. The backyard was nice to hang out and eat outside. It was a quiet area and we felt safe (the security guard was super friendly/helpful). I went to the hotel next to her for the pool but to be honest the pool next to her condo is much better in my opinion. The condo had lots of goodies sunblock, food, coolers, shampoo, mousse etc... The only thing I would suggest for Jeannette is to have some fans I personally don't like the ac but I had to turn it because that was the only option.
I would love to recommend this apartment if you are planning on visiting San Juan, Condado, Isla verde, etc.. Jeanette was awesome, we did not personally meet, but always available if needed by phone.. apartment is cozy, comfy.. it needs some up keeping but we didn't complain..
This place was exactly what we were looking for. Jeannette, the owner, was beyond helpful whenever we needed her. Everything was clean, the patio was relaxing, and having access to all the amenities of the Rio Grande was very nice. I would definitely recommend this property!
