What makes this apartment unique

Short drive away to rainforest

Guestbook comments from the owner

The best features of the apartment were:

The location is fantastic. It was great to be a walk away from the beach, the pool, and the tennis courts, a 5-minute drive over to the little street on the other side of the highway with a couple gift stores and cafes, and a 15-minute drive to El Yunque. It was also nice to have a good kitchen to make it easy to make meals in the house. The house was comfortable to stay in and the terrace was great to sit on and read or bounce a ball back and forth with our six-year-old.

What we enjoyed the most of our puertorican experience:

The weather is always wonderful. The forecast said it would rain every day but it managed to rain at night and be sunny and beautiful the whole day. We loved playing in the ocean waves and walking on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Puerto Rico. The property is in a perfect location. The beach is just a short walk away, and it's beautiful. The apartment was in great condition and perfect for a small family. The amenities were great and the owner was attentive and helpful. There were no issues with the apartment, it was exactly as advertised and the great location made exploring Puerto Rico easy and fun. Would definitely recommend this apartment.

What a Dream Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family arrived on 4/13/15 and we were so impressed with the Condo and the complex. The condo is beautiful and we were as comfortable there as we were in our own home back in Connecticut.

The beach is second to none and the pool is fantastic. My wife and our two girls had a dream vacation. In addition to the beautiful condo, beach and pool - the location we were in had many attractions such as the rain forest across the street and horseback riding thru the forest as well. San Juan is only 20 minutes away - and Old San Juan is a must day long visit.

The owner has taken the time and great effort to prepare a detailed reference booklet providing information about restaurants and other attractions which really made things easy for us. I recommend you look thru that in addition to finding things to do and see on your own.

I rate this spot a 5 star special and have already recommended it to friends, I cant say enough about this vacation rental.

Great place to call home

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful apartment for our first trip to Puerto Rico. It was well stocked, clean and spacious for our family of 4. The beach chairs, boogie boards, towels, coolers, etc. were so handy. We used them many times at the very secluded beach. Jose was very helpful and easy to work with from the first day I inquired. He checked in before and during our trip and answered my many questions quickly. We felt very safe and comfortable at the apartment. We made good use of the tennis courts, pool and quiet space. The apartment is located close to the rainforest and Fajardo. We had a great snorkel trip and a wonderful trip to Old San Juan. I hope we get the chance to stay here again.

Weeks of Summer

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I, active seniors, stayed in the unit for 6 weeks. We enjoyed the location, the beach and pool, and the surrounding area. The unit was well equipped for a long term stay, plenty of beach towels, chairs, coolers and beach toys for kids.. Ceiling fans in both the master bedroom and living room would be nice rather than using the air conditioning. Also, drapes on the windows would be nice for long term stays. The owner, Jose, was extremely helpful and timely when contacted with questions about the area or unit. The security people and maintenance staff are very nice. The beach is beautiful and during the week hardly used. We walked to the Wyndam Resort for breakfast several times and enjoyed their facilities on several evenings.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

My family had such a wonderful time at the condo. It had everything we needed—beach towels, chairs, cooler and a wagon to haul everything. The kids really loved the boogie boards. The location was perfect: right by the beach and so close to the rain forest! And we practically had the beach to ourselves. Owners were very helpful and easy to work with. Jose even called mid-trip to make sure everything was going well. He had lots of great dining and activity recommendations for us. Be sure to visit Barbacoa for lunch or dinner. Delish! Wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks so much for everything!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in the well equipped condo. Jose was very friendly and easy to work with. He answered inquiries promptly and checked in with us to make sure all was well. The condo was as pictured and included lots of extras to enhance one's stay (beach chairs, boogie boards, life jackets, beach towels, cooler, extra pillows and bedding, etc.) The queen bed in the master bedroom was comfortable. There was a walk in closet, and separate mirrored makeup area outside the bathroom. Both showers worked well. Each bedroom and the living area had an air conditioner. The kitchen was well equipped with nice stainless steel pans and we cooked several meals there. It was nice to have a washer and dryer as we were going on a cruise after we left. We spent a lot of time on the patio enjoying the beautiful weather and listening to the ocean. The grounds were very well kept and very secure. A key was needed to enter and leave the beach. The beach was very quiet and we enjoyed sitting and walking on it. The waves were usually good for boogie boarding. The pool was also very nice, clean and little used. The tennis court was in good shape. We needed to have the security guard unlock it when we wanted to use it. We never saw anyone else use it. There is a lot to do in the area. The rain forest is a short drive. We got there around 8:30, which was a great time to avoid the crowds. When we left around noon the more popular areas were packed with tour buses. We also did a snorkeling trip out of Fajardo, toured the Nature Reserve, kayaked in the bio bay, and took surfing lessons at Luquillo beach! We enjoyed the kioskos at Luquillo beach and had good meals at Richie's (great view) and Barbakoa's (lunch outside on the river). We returned home to 10 inches of snow and traded our boogie boards for snow shovels! Would love to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write your detailed review. It is great to hear your stay in our Beach apartment was comfortable and you loved the east of Puerto Rico that has so much to offer. I did not know there were surfing classes in Fajardo, so I guess you have done things that I had no idea existed. Thanks for sharing, warm regards, Jose B
