Seattle, Washington

Amazing view, so clean and comfortable! Everything seems new and well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four just spent a week in Richard’s condo! There were no power outages during our stay. This is the best vacation rental we have stayed in by far! All the beds were so comfortable. The place was extremely clean and well stocked with everything you need. All the kitchen items and linens were well organized and labeled and are like new. The amazing view and the ocean breeze coming in through the oversized balcony made spending our afternoons in the condo very nice. The condo building was quiet and very secure. The community pools were great! The condo is conveniently located near restaurants and grocery stores. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would love to stay here again for our next visit to Puerto Rico! Richard was very responsive and helpful during our visit. It was a great experience from beginning to end.

Beautiful condo and extremely responsive owner!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this condo was truly a treat! The view is beautiful (we took some great sunrise pictures every morning) with a wonderful breeze. The condo itself was conveniently-located and extremely clean and equipped with everything we could need to cook and enjoy our time at the beach (beach chairs, towels, toys). When we arrived to check in, we were met by the owner's aunt who gave us a walk through of the condo and had event prepared the pack-n-play with clean sheets and blankets for our one-year old. She was such a delight! We stayed during the week of March 10th and did not experience any power or water outages during that time, so you can feel secure in renting at this location! Richard was very flexible as we had to make a few last minute changes to the guest list. Prior to and during our stay, he was very responsive and answered all questions, even checking in with us during out stay to make sure everything was meeting our expectations. Overall, this is exactly the kind of experience we hoped to have during our vacation! I would gladly recommend this property to anyone looking for a beautiful view of the ocean, comfortable, clean and family-friendly, rental!

Beautiful Dawns

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, spacious condo with a spectacular eastern view of sunrise over the Atlantic. Much of the island seems to be recuperating yet from the hurricane, though this unit is in excellent, nearly new condition and is well furnished from beach towels to the espresso pot. The complex is well sited and feels secure with a friendly staff. The location is convenient to San Juan, ferries to nearby islands, and the eastern coast. Last but not least, our kind host was always available to share advice and give direction.

Owner's Response: Hi John, Thank you for the great review! Yes, the dawns on our side of the island are breathtaking and a spectacular site to see from our balconies. Island coastal activity starts early and you are ideally located with direct views to the other islands of Palomino and Culebra. We really enjoyed having you stay! Richard

Lovely condo with beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed from August 30, 2017 to September 4, 2017 and had a wonderful trip. The condo is centrally located in Fajardo and a short drive from several great restaurants and bars, as well as very close to Seven Seas Beach and the ferry terminal to Culebra/Vieques. Also a short drive to El Yunque National Forest. We also spent a day at the pool located within the complex and had a great time. The condo itself was very clean and accommodating with GORGEOUS views of the ocean. Overall, a fantastic stay!

Clean, safe, and central!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect property for our family. The facility was clean, and had wonderful safety and security measures. We loved the infinity pool and the beautiful view of the harbor. We also enjoyed the gorgeous view from the balcony of our rental.

Richard was wonderful to work with and responded to my many questions quickly- and gave us so many helpful tips for our visit.

We loved the location. It was close to all the things we wanted to do- El Yunque Rain Forest, taking a catamaran and snorkeling, BioBay, nice beaches, and plenty of delicious food choices.
