Located within walking distance from the beach, this simply beautiful and modern house is where you'll want to retreat during your getaway. As you walk in, you'll instantly feel like you've walked into a fancy hotel, without paying the price. We are located in a hidden beach next to Table Rock (Surf spot), an ideal spot for swimming, surfing, fishing, and kayaking. Typically, the winter season brings with it waves worthy of the surfer in you, while the summertime offers a more calm and serene beach. About 15 minutes away, you'll find yourself in Rincon, popularly known as the 'Meca of Surfing' For the social butterflies, a large variety of restaurants and bars are as close as a five-minute drive. If a desirable location and a comfortable, beautiful 'home away from home' are what you are looking for, come home to Santa Mar.
Original from Aguada, my family lives 10 minutes away from the house. Love the beach house, especially my kids. They can spend the day at the beach.
Alexy Aviles purchased this house in 2014
This property is a true gem, after purchasing it I made it my own and can't say enough about it. As a kid, this was the beach that my parents always took me too.
The most amazing thing about the house is the amount of space available, inside and out.
We stayed at Santa Mar during the month of February 2017 and were very pleased with the experience. The facility is very clean, roomy and modern. Individual air conditioning is available in each of the three bedrooms. There is no air conditioning in the other areas of the property however fans are available for air flow. The two full bathrooms provide all the essentials with the only downside being the less than optimal shower heads. The outside shower is cold water only.
Everything you need to cook meals is available. There is no dishwasher. We used the outside barbecue charcoal grill five times and were very pleased to have it available. There are plenty of super markets close by and we were able to purchase some fresh fish at La Casa del Dorado which is about 15 minutes away by car.
The wireless internet is fast and reliable. TV programming is limited to the major networks however it was not a problem because we were able to stream what we wanted to watch.
The beach is about 175 steps away. We purchased and left behind two beach lounge chairs to go along with the two sit up chairs which were on property. Beach towels are provided. The beach is very nice and quiet however it is not pristine because it is not maintained by the city or locals. There is a considerable amount of natural debris and occasionally a few tires will wash up. Regardless you'll spend plenty of time on the beach enjoying the sun and surf.
There is a washer and dryer provided which are convenient and work well.
There are many restaurants within walking distance (1 mile or less) and many more within a 10-15 minutes drive. Try the Mero (Grouper) because pretty much anywhere it is good. Go to Me "Latte" un Capricho on the square in Aguada for crepes and you will not be disappointing. Other notable restaurants include Estella (Short Ribs), The Island (Fish Nuggets), Guayabo's Tropical Sunset (Mero), La Casa del Dorado (Drinks and Plantain Chips - not food), Capriccio Trattoria (Great Italian food) and King Donuts (Addictive Cinnamon Buns).
The area is very safe and we never felt uneasy. There is a surprising amount of traffic and the dogs, frogs and rooster can be a bit noisy so if you are sensitive to noise at night this might not be your cup of tea.
We were very please with the help of Jorge and Joe who maintained the property and served as contacts during our stay. Both are warm and friendly and really great guys.
Enjoy Santa Mar, we did.
Everything was great the house was perfect and we will definitely be back!!
This is the second year that we have stayed at this home and we will return every time we are in Puerto Rico. Home is in a very nice safe area my kids loved the beach and we were very comfortable. The WiFi for the business side came in handy also! Highly recommend to anyone!!!
The property is better than pictured! A beautiful condo steps from the beach. The bedrooms are very comfortable. The kitchen & living room are lovely. The owner was very, very nice & easy to contact via phone & email. If you're looking for a quiet, clean, lovely place to stay which is close to the ocean, this is it. (Side note: use the google maps app to find it! Owner was very helpful when we had a little trouble on the way there.) Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Alexy was really kind to let us check in early with no extra fee and we checked out half hour late and weren't penalized for it. The house is nice, has a washer and a dryer(you csn pack lite),ac's worked perfectly, nice hammock. Close to nice beaches.
Very nice property!!! Very charming, everything clean and organized!!! Just as pictured in the photos!!! Nice receiving and always available for any question!!! Calm place and walking distance to the beach to watch the sunset!!! Perfect place to stay!!!!
