Being Puerto Rico an Island in the Caribbean, we thought having a chalet close to the beach and to the forest was the best option to rest and forget about the daily stress.
Quietness, private pool, pool table, (2) big balcony. Resting is guaranteed.
A really great place to hang out. Quiet & private, but a short drive to beaches and restaurants. The opposite of hectic & crowded San Juan, but only about 35 minutes away if you want to spend the day there. Perfect for families. Hector was responsive & accommodating. A great choice.
We had a wonderful time in Puerto Rico and staying here was a big part of that. It was just our family of 5 including our 3 teenage boys. I would probably not recommend for more that 6 unless people don't mind sleeping together or in the middle of the living room. Although you could definitely entertain probably 80 people outside!!!
Here is what we REALLY loved about the place... The outdoor living area! We used the pool table every day when we were just hanging out snacking and sitting by the pool. The outdoor kitchen is awesome to have and we cooked and ate many meals there. Whether you wanted to be in the shade under a ceiling fan or swimming in the pool we could all still be together. Great outdoor sound system that you can just plug your phone into. Beautiful views and surroundings!!! Lots of animal noises that we enjoyed.. frogs, birds, horses, and the donkey 😉�. Playing basketball out there was fun too. So glad there was a ball! Also, having the extra bathroom down there was so convenient.
Great quality washer and dryer!
The upstairs deck was wonderful with its tables, chairs, hammock, and view!
The only thing I would definitely change is adding a little more seating for lounging inside. Currently only a futon. We ended up bringing in the chairs from the deck.
This place is a good mix of simple/rustic and updated. Kitchens are very modern and nice but no oven or dishwasher. Tons of pots/pans and dishes and utensils!
Bathroom fixtures are nice.
The rustic part: the old wood floors are slightly separated in places peaking down to the outdoor lower level. Exterior doors are a bit tough to open sometimes. Lighting.
There were 6 good quality beach towels and 6 portable beach chairs (we took those to beach). Plenty of nice white bath towels and washcloths, closet space, drawers, blankets.
It was a fabulous and different place to stay and will definitely stay again if we have an opportunity. Thank you!!!
We stay in VRBO all over the island and this one is special. It has a combination of rustic and modern. My 4 kids loved having a pool after a full day of exploring the island. It's very clean and well maintained. I wish I would have had better directions the first day and more towels.
This was almost the perfect house in an idyllic setting for our group of 8 twenty-somethings. It's a great place to bond as a group and conducive to hanging out, cooking, and listening to music.
What we loved:
-Beautiful 360-degree views w/ lots of great bird watching (and listening) to be had from either the lower level patio or the top level deck. Bring binoculars if you have them (or buy them if you don't, it'll be worth it. Check out the Wirecutter for a great review on what to get).
-Phenomenal outdoor living area with several seating areas and tables on both upper and lower levels
-8 speaker outdoor soundsystem and headphone cable hookup.
-Outdoor kitchen on lower level with huge island
-Fully functional AC in all upstairs rooms with individual zone control
-Coqui noises at night, bird songs during the day. There's also some chickens and donkeys nearby. Bring ear plugs if these bother you.
-There's a blender and a citrus juicer!
-Clean, fully functional bathrooms
-Beach towels (6) & chairs (3)
-New washer/dryer setup
What we didn't love:
-The grill/oven/griddle unit lacked any sort of instructions to go with it and was also in slight disrepair—not to the point of inoperability, but enough to be very annoying. The starter is broken, the labels have long ago worn off of every dial and switch, the provided grill lighter is unreliable, One of the knobs didn't work at all and popped right off, and the whole thing was was FILTHY when we opened it.
-The listing specifies that the hot tub heater is broken. But the pool relies on the hot tub for heating. This renders the pool unusably cold (felt like <70 degrees F) for anything more than cooling down for a couple minutes at a time. No good for swimming/hanging out.
-Sofa bed is totally broken and needs to be replaced
-The ceiling fans in the house don't work.
-Only provided one remote opener for the front gate to the gated community. Really should give 2 since groups w/ more than 5 ppl will need multiple cars.
-A house for up to 10 ppl should come with a dishwasher.
-Go to Costco in San Juan before coming to Luquillo. Groceries are expensive and of mediocre quality. Selectos in Rio Del Mar is closer. Amigo in Luquillo is cheaper, but essentially just a groceries-only Walmart with a different name.
-The Hacienda Carabali restaurant is only $1-2 more expensive per dish than the Luquillo Kiosks for the same food
...gated community, beautiful views & pool, conveniet local, semi-updated inside, & out.This home could be great with updates, cleaner finishes on their DIY projects, & a guide to navigate it's quirks!
My Husband, our 4 kids (2, 6, 10, 13), & I arrived in the evening. We used the written directions, & not the HomeAway GPS location. The house is fenced in, & has a gate with a chain, at the edge of the driveway.
The front door was hard to open all the way. The home was hot when we arrived, & has no screens in the living area, but it has 4 AC units. The lighting inside is dim. The home has lots of storage, kitchen supplies, beach toys, & love the hammocks!
We headed to the pool night 1. The pool lights were on, but the problem was finding the other lights outside. Countless amounts of light switches all around, a lot of which went to nothing. Labels are an easy fix.
On our 1st night, between 10-11pm, we found out our neighbors had a very loud donkey. His fav times of day to "talk" 10-11pm, 5-7am. 6-8am: roosters, dogs, construction, ATV'S, neighborhood landscapers & firecrackers.
The morning of day 2, we were shocked to see men walking around the property. They were pool guys & we inconvienced our day until they left. When we came back home, our gate was open! Nothing was missing, but it's alarming.
We discovered a window that had slid down it's broken frame, leaving a 2 inch gap. We covered it with a plastic bag & informed the manager about our day 1 troubles, who apolgized. No one came to fix the window, which could easily fall out.
There's no video game system as advertised. No screens in living area. Not enough couch seating, so we used the sofa bed for movie night & it's broken! There's no support at one end. It took force & finesse to close it. Judging by the condition, this was the tactic everyone used.
There's no oven, but the large Grill has one. When we saw it's broken knobs, we left it alone.
The master bed is too springy, my husband's movements woke me up. But the matress is comfortable.
The bathrooms have nice finishes, but the tub has a huge area of repair tape on the wall, & another big hole left uncovered. The bathroom, has gaps between the floor boards. You can see the 1st floor. The shower head is too low, & hot water takes a while. The faucets spit water on you when turned on all the way. Mold & mildew in the tubs & patio furniture, gross! There's litter on the property, & cigarette butts around the stairs. Gross!
Majestic views. All the comforts of home. Beautiful patio kitchen. Refreshing pool and jacuzzi Close to the beach Yunque and many activities. The nightly song of the coqui. Heaven on earth
That house was absolutely PERFECT in every single way!! The outdoor patio living area is AMAZING! I honestly cannot say enough good things about this house as well as Carmen and her husband! I ALWAYS travel w my own sheets but the bedding in the house was better than my own sheets, so soft! Carmen emailed me soon into our trip to check on everything and the Internet wasn't working, her husband was out the next morning fixing it and it worked perfectly after! The location of the house is perfect, honestly my husband and I and our 4 kids didn't really leave the house at all for the first 5 days! Lots of late night family swim times made this vacation perfect! We will absolutely plan our next vacation and stay here at this house!! THANK YOU for such a beautiful house!!!
