Kansas City


  • 5 of 5

The place was more than we could have asked for. Plenty of room for our family of four. The kids had their own room together and my wife and I had a nice master suite with bathroom. The patio was peaceful. Beach couldn't be nicer!! It was an easy walk (maybe the length of a football field) from the ground floor patio. The palm trees provided shade should you want it from the sun. There was plenty of beach for our family. I counted 7 other people on a mile stretch of sand at 1:00pm on a PERFECT day. It is the best private beach I have ever been to. The waves were perfect for boogie boarding (which Maria provided, as well as sand toys and chairs).

We went to the kiosks twice as well as bio bay and the rainforest.

The only negative was the shower pressure and the a/c in the master would throw out tiny black particles. That was it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review, glad you enjoyed your stay. Regarding the a/c, it was checked and the fan and motor had to be cleaned. The shower pressure was due to a low pressure trouble in the area, now is back to normal. Thanks for choosing my property and hope to have you back in the future.

Wonderful condo, secluded beach!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is a gem! It has everything you need. We were very comfortable there. We stayed for the month of August and we had a wonderful time! There are several grocery stores fairly close and we had everything we needed to cook meals. We went to the beach and used the pools daily. There were plenty of towels for all of us. The only downside is that the wifi is not very strong, which was not a problem until my husband tried to do some work remotely.

I can't say enough how much I enjoyed being right on the beach. I sometimes went hours without seeing anyone else. The Wyndham was a nice walk away, and the kiosks were beyond that. We did several day trips, including exploring Old San Juan, el Yunque, and we did a wonderful snorkeling tour to Vieques with Pure Adventure (HIGHLY recommended, we saw lots of fish and sea turtles!)

Maria was very helpful, and even had someone in to clean the condo every week. The security at the condo made me feel safe. I'll definitely stay here again the next time I go to PR!

Beautiful, perfectly stocked, condo on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had the best 4 days at this condo!! My husband, our 2 kids (9 and 12 years old), and I stayed at Maria's condo last week and we did not want to leave! Such a great location - we did Old San Juan, El Yunque, etc but were so happy to come back to the condo every afternoon. The beach was paradise - never crowded and tons of sand dollars. We kept saying we were so lucky to have found Maria's listing - such a perfect place to stay!!

Had a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Maria's condo for a week. Everything went well, the condo was well appointed and in a great location. You can hear the ocean that is just a short walk away! Lots of beach chairs, noodles and such. Just an FYI, they did not have any lounge chairs at the pool. We usually just went for a quick dip as we spent most our time at the beach, so not a huge issue for us. But the condo had plenty of chairs to take there if you wanted to. The back patio was great, spent lots of time hanging out there listening to the waves!

Steps from a beautiful private beach lined with palm trees

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice, clean and exactly as pictured. Note that the rooms are cozy and efficient with great storage, supplies, ceiling fans, and plenty of sitting space in the living room. Master bed is very comfortable; you can hear the ocean waves from the bedroom while drifting off to sleep. The kitchen is well stocked with everything that VRBO kitchens often lack. The owner provides plenty of beach chairs (including Tommy Bahama Chairs...what we use at home!) cooler and toys to use on the beach. The outdoor patio is great for meals and relaxation; ocean view is limited on the ground level however you can feel the ocean breeze and hear the waves loud and clear. There are beautiful stone picnic tables under the palm trees right on the beach for anyone to use for coffee or dinner if you want to dine close to the water.

The beach is exceptionally beautiful; palm trees line the beach without condos directly on the water as they are set back therefore they don't take away from the natural beauty. The beach is essentially private (we stayed during the week) as all the condo units in the area have security guarding access. After exploring other beaches in the area, including the famed Luquillo Beach, we felt the best one was right outside our door!

Condo is centrally located with close access to Old San Juan, El Yunque Rainforest, Kiosks for dining and near the Wyndham Del Mar where we visited the Casino. This is a great place to stay while exploring Puerto Rico. Highly recommended! I hope to return!!

Awesome location . will return.

  • 4 of 5

This was our second year at Maria's and we plan to return next year. We were delighted to have our daughter and her family come for 10 days. The 9 and 6 year old boys thought the beach, the surf and their stay was awesome. Maria again was very helpful in making this a comfortable stay. The patio has breath taking views of El Yunque rain forest and the ocean. Everything is clean and well maintained. This is a secure property and the security team was friendly and attentive. Everything we needed was provided in the unit, including beach chairs and toys. This property is close to the rain forest, the ferries in Farjardo, and the Luquillo Kiosks. We're looking forward to another piece of paradise here next year.
