Mark Malchiodi purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Mark Malchiodi chose La Pared
Direct Beach Front. The building sits on top of a large piece of granite jutting out into the ocean. The ground floor is 100 feet above sea level. There is always a breeze on the balcony where you can hear the waves crash hundreds of feet below. If you like to go for a walk you can walk for hours to the right of the property and see no one. It feels like you are shipwrecked on an island. Turn around and you can see waves for miles with a the rainforest as a back drop.
What makes this Condo unique
Central location to many activities. We are right on the beach. The rainforest is right behind the building. Drive for 15 minutes and you are already in it. To the left is a surfers beach. I love the beach and watching the surfers. to the right is a nature preserve sea turtles nest in April. 10 minutes drive you are at the Fajardo. think Catamaran rides, Ferry to Culebra and or Viqueues. 5 minute drive you can go ATVing, ziplining, horse backing riding, Ko-carts, and then there is Luquillo beach. Then my favorite is of course Old San Juan. I go there each time.

Great location for a family. Enjoy the local scene while feeling totally safe. Beach is amazing. Beware of dangerous riptide directly in fromt of condo. DO NOT swim there. Plenty of great restaurants a block or two away. Locals are jncredibly friendly. Instringly sugges you try the surfing lessons at La Pared just up the beach. No experience required an all ages would have a blast.
Thank you for your kind review. I just wanted to respond about the dangerous riptides in the beach in front of the condo. Yes, they do exist. When a guest books I send out a detailed 20 page attachment of everything about the condo area, things to do etc. I have various red bolded sections of special importance. One of these is on swimming safety and being mindful of this. I specifically mention where not to swim and where we swim, which is about a 10 minute walk to the left. I also mention that if you swim to the immediate left you need a surf board. I also again mention the pool is out of service at this time as well in case someone missed it. It is also posted on the site. Actually all pools in the area are out of service because of the earthquake. After I send the attachment I ask if anyone has any questions. So I think I am pretty forthcoming about everything and that is how I operate.
Loved the view, and loved the sound of the waves crashing below. Apartment was great, and had everything we needed. A/C in the bedrooms worked well.
Good ideas of what to do/where to eat were provided in the welcome packet. Master bed was a little too soft for my wife and me, but great value for the money.
Owner was prompt, specific, and courteous. View was amazing. Accomodations were clean.
Conveniently located between San Juan, rain forest, and ferry to the Islands. Beautiul red sands outside the condo and an amazing moon rose over the water. Would recommend staying here. Security at the building was excellent.
Thank you for the kind review. I receive a lot of good feed back on the condo's central location for many activities and the condos commanding views of the area. You can see many things like the moon or the sun rising or the cruise ships far in the distance.
The views here are epic and just can’t be beat! The apartment met all of our needs, beds were super comfy, and easy drive anywhere we needed to go.
Thank you for the review. I receive a lot of comments about the condos central location. It is very close to a lot of activities. Also for some strange reason many people like the mattresses. I went with the more expense ones when I bought them. I like nice things.
Great location, comfortable apartment, secure building
The building is located at the end of a beautiful undeveloped beach, yet near interesting restaurants (the kioscos are fun!). The apartment itself is well-maintained, comfortable, has all the amenities, and is quiet except for the waves and the occasional rooster. We requested a second set of keys which were delivered right away by the local rep - prompt service very much appreciated. Old San Juan is 40 min away, and water activities in Fajardo about 20, not to mention the rain forest at El Yunque only 15 min away. Highly recommended!
Hi Hans, thank you for the honest review. One of the main draws of the condo that people do not fully appreciate until they get there is its central location to many of the tourist attractions that are very close as you noted. Review after review it is one of the main responses I get back. I like to have a choice of activities to go to while on vacation. I also like to listen to the waves as they crash along the beach. It is tranquil to me. But I do agree with you on the occasional rooster.
Big condo. Great view. Helpful owner.
We could only stay one night, but we will return if we can.
Nice three bedroom place. Fantastic ocean views. We sat on the balcony for a couple hours in the evening.
Owner was very helpful with detailed instructions sent to us upon booking and promptly responded to texts before and during our stay. No regrets at all.
Hi Dee, I am glad you had a good time. I am particularly glad you enjoyed the ocean views. It is hard to describe them until you are there. Also thanks for the nice mention of my attachment. It is working on out very well sending this informative packet to my guests ahead of time.
Location is at the edge of town. You can walk to restaurants and bars from the building. Grocery store is about 1 mile away.
