About the property

3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, secure beachfront property with both Ocean & Mountain Views

Welcome to Villa De Paz! A serene oceanfront hideaway overlooking the brilliant blue waters of Puerto Rico, this magnificent two-story Villa provides both spectacular ocean views and the calming sounds of waves cascading onto the shore. Villa De Paz is a vacation sanctuary where the entire family or a group of friends can rejuvenate and relax.

After a day of island fun, retire to your comfortable beachfront villa featuring an invitingly spacious 1900 square feet, with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The living room, dining area, and kitchen on the lower floor share a large open space. The mountain breezes travel in the front door through the first floor, providing refreshing natural air conditioning. The kitchen is fully stocked, and also includes filtered drinking water, a wine refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, and in-sink garbage disposal.

The spacious master bedroom has a king size bed, bathroom, and windows facing the ocean. The ocean-side guest bedroom features a sliding door to the balcony. The garden-side guest bedroom has a sliding door leading to a large balcony offering palm tree lined views of a mountain range. All three bedrooms have individual air conditioning units and ceiling fans. Linens, bath and beach towels, and hair dryer are included.

We have other amenities to make your stay comfortable, enjoyable and even productive should you need to work or check emails. Villa de Paz has High Speed Internet (40 mbps), WIFI, a new 46” HDTV (purchased Jan. 2014), Apple TV service, a community pool, and two (2) assigned parking spaces.

We are also located in a very safe community. The Villa sits in a private gated community, with a guard station staffed 24x7. The administrator boasts that there have been no incidents in our gated community . . . ever!

We are located in one of the most exclusive cities in all of Puerto Rico, which means great restaurants and an abundance of available services with plenty to do. The Villa is just a 3-minute walk away from the Embassy Suites Casino & Hotel . . . so you can gamble or enjoy the poolside bar and restaurants. If golf is your passion, Dorado is THE PLACE TO BE … Dorado Beach East Course was originally designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. and redesigned by his son Robert Trent Jones Jr. in 2010. The East course is recognized as one of the finest golf courses in the Caribbean by beauty and difficulty. Playing along the Atlantic Ocean and through a stunning tropical forest, the course plays as a par 72 with deep bunkers, plenty of lakes and greens that are fast and undulating.

The Pineapple and Sugarcane golf courses are two courses originally designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. as well. These two courses play on flatter terrain, and more resort friendly. The beautiful Hacienda clubhouse has a fully stocked golf shop and PGA academy provides instruction at the practice facilities, which include a large practice range. Do not forget to visit Zafra and enjoy a great dinner.

Dorado has great restaurants and bars with local and international cuisine just minutes away. One local restaurant offers half price lobster every Thursday evening. Also within minutes are a movie theater, pharmacies, grocery stores, bakeries, and fast food. The city of Dorado has just about everything you will want or need during a vacation. We will have a list of restaurant, golf and excursion recommendations waiting for you in Villa De Paz.

Come enjoy paradise!

About Jesus and Ronda Roman (Ana Rivera = Property Manager)

I was born and bred in Camuy, Puerto Rico. Ronda and I are now long-time residents of Simi Valley, California. My family still lives in PR and we visit often.

Jesus and Ronda Roman (Ana Rivera = Property Manager) purchased this villa in 2014

Why Jesus and Ronda Roman (Ana Rivera = Property Manager) chose Dorado del Mar

Our dream is to someday retire in Puerto Rico in a home next to the beach. We recently realized our dream by purchasing this Villa! Having our morning coffee on the terrace with the spectacular views of the Atlantic and hearing the sounds of the waves is our idea of paradise. It is also perfect for our daughter as she can safely play in the ocean or on the large grassy area next to the Villa. Dorado is family friendly, secure, and beautiful!

What makes this villa unique

We chose Villa de Paz because of the spectacular views, close proximity to the beach, and the large open space as you enter the villa. We like that we are located in a secure gated community in Dorado, an upper scale area, which translates to good local restaurants and services. It is also located for ease of travel to the west (where one can enjoy the Camuy Caves, Arecibo Observatory, Rincon surfing, etc.), and the east (where one can enjoy Old San Juan, the Rain Forest, Luquillo Beach, the Bacardi plant, etc.).

One pleasant surprise was the constant breeze traversing the first floor when the first floor doors are open. This breeze comes off the mountains and provides a refreshing and cool contrast to the heat and humidity of this tropical paradise.

Comfortable house, beautiful views -- good for families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with one-year-old twins and a six-year-old, and it was perfect. We loved seeing the water from our balcony and enjoyed the short walk to the beach or pool each day. The kitchen was well-supplied, we appreciated the washer and dryer, and we had everything we needed. The Apple TV also came in handy when we had some rain one afternoon. With the doors on the main floor open, the temperature was perfect, and the breeze off the ocean was lovely. It was a great stay!

Villa de Paz is Villa de Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

If your looking to get away from city life and relax in a quiet beach setting, then this Villa is just what you want! Waking up and sitting on one of two balconies (upper or lower) overlooking the ocean is amazing. This place has everything you need plus extras. The décor is light and airy and calling your name. A home away from home that had my wife and I fully relaxed from the moment we walked through the door. The kitchen has everything you need for a home cooked meal and a grill out on the balcony. The bedrooms are fully equipped as well. Just get there and then go to the beach for a swim in that warm water. Then, explore the wonders of Puerto Rico!

Great Time in Puerto Rico

  • 5 of 5

We visited Puerto Rico for a baseball trip. Our son was staying at the nearby Embassy Suites. The condo was very convenient...we were able to be near our son's team but we had a nicer condo experience than a hotel would have provided. The views were fantastic. Our only complaint was no air conditioning on the main floor. We did keep the doors and windows open and there was a nice breeze. All the bedrooms were on the second floor and all were air conditioned. We had a nice stay and enjoyed the beach and absolutely gorgeous views. Everything was clean when we arrived. Very secure property...we had to get through two security gates to get to the complex.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We aim at keeping the Villa in tip-top shape and have recently invested in new air conditioning units for the bedrooms. The breeze on the first floor is delightful and is supplemented by four ceiling fans.

Great place to stay for our vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay this month in the villa. The home was stocked with everything we would find at home. The location was great and central to a lot of the activities that we wanted to do without being in the middle of the touristy areas. Ana was helpful in making sure we were well taken care of. We like this so much, that we're considering buying a villa of our own now.

Relaxing vacation with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

This villa is in a prime location with an amazing view. The place is beautifully decorated, has high speed internet and all the comforts of home. We ended up staying in most nights and were able to cook full meals thanks to the well-stocked kitchen. We had the beach to ourselves during the weekdays. The property manager was attentive and made our check in and check out seamless. I highly recommend this property and plan to rent it again.
