Enjoy lovely sunrises from your bedroom and sunsets from your balcony at this waterfront condominium on 500 acres of Wildlife Preserve with many species of birds, 12 miles of hiking and biking paths and access to an exceptional sandy swimming beach recently described as 'one of the top ten beaches in the United States.' A restored lighthouse sits on the promontory of this peninsula on the south west tip of Puerto Rico. 500 yards from an excellent restaurant, Bahia Salinas, with live music on weekends and available bike rentals there. Condo has two large bedrooms, two full baths, 2 inflatable twin-size mattresses, living room and eat-in kitchen; pool on premises; two kayaks for your personal use, HD TV, Bluray DVD, ipod docking station. Minimum rental is six days.
my wife and I first visited the peninsula where the condo is located and decided on the spot to buy a condo in this most beautiful place. We got home, deciding we were crazy, but then received a series of photos of the place by email . Our anxieties melted away. We, our children and grandchildren now all love being there.
Robert White purchased this condo in 2006
we bought our vacation rental because of the beautiful beach, the gorgeous sunsets, and the chance to share it with our (adult) kids and our grandchildren.
For a start, we have had a wonderful week in Cabo Rojo. Communication with the owner was very nice, the apartment is big en clean and has good beds, showers en absolutely everything you need! We really enjoined the kayaks! We knew there was no wifi, but we really missed it. Especially now MH17 (Dutch aircraft was shot down by Oekraine rebels) and we wanted more information.
We were a little less happy with the location. Beach in front could only be used to enter with the kayak, and july is not the best month to see birds and wildlife and we preferred the more green parts of the island. But thats just a matter of taste and we knew about the dry bit from the start.
Overall a very nice stay.
PS there is a wonderful walk just on the left side of the watchtower! You have to pass a closed gate (so not easy to find or access) but beautiful there.
We just returned from our second stay in this comfortable and spectacularly-located condo. As others have mentioned, the complex is very quiet (perhaps summer and holidays are different) and a bit away from activity. It can be a great base for explorations of this part of the island, or a totally satisfying place to spend whatever time is not at La Playuela or the other local beaches. We loved the comfort, breezes, and views. The daily decisions centered around which beach, and which book to read next, exactly what we wanted.
A transportation note: we have always flown to SJU and driven to the southwest. This time we opted to fly Jetblue from Hartford to SJU and connect to Mayaguez via Cape Air. It seemed like an opportunity to fly over the interior of the island and avoid a 3 hour drive. It was definitely worth exploring, although we did need to take a taxi from the tiny airport to the Mayaguez Mall Avis to pick up our car(the only rental place open after 6pm, though there is a Thrifty desk in the airport if you arrive on an earlier flight). The drive from there is easy--perhaps 45 minutes, with several supermarkets en route (and a roadside stand selling cocos frios and the only avocados we could find just south of the mall--worth a stop) We didn't actually save much total time, but had a very different adventure, so it's worth considering....
I really cannot think of much the apartment lacks. A garlic press? Internet(available at the parador next door)? Bikes (would be nice but not required)? It is impeccably kept, and stocked with many basic spices and cooking supplies.
Something new: the fact that the lighthouse and beach have official hours now, with a gate that is open between 9 and 5. Yikes! There also seems to be an attempt to limit vehicle entry on weekends, which means lots of cars parked along the road by the condo complex and people waiting for the trolley to take them in and out. Not a problem, unless you try to go to the beach late in the day on the weekend and are turned away by the policia.
All told, a great spot, and one I look forward to returning to!
My wife and I spent 8 wonderful days at this Cabo Rojo condo. It was immaculate, well equiped and a great place for unwinding, and a great base for exploration of the Cabo Rojo area. We would love to return next year.
Our family of 3 loved this home away from home! It is gorgeous with all the amenties described and then some. Spacious with sunrise and sunset views over water (yes, water on both sides!). The pictures are accurate, although it is nicer than the pictures even show! The location is quiet, well away from the traffic and hustle of other areas of the island. The diving in La Parguerra and snorkeling at Playa Buye (both about 20 min away) was terrific. The owner was super helpful and very, very easy to work with! Lots of great places to eat. The lighthouse can be seen from the balcony, which we thought was wonderful! Many areas of interest are not that far away. We even went to the Arecibo Observatory. It was one of the best vacations ever (and we travel a bit).
The entire experience from setting up the reservations and staying at the Cabo Rojo Condo was perfect. The owners were helpful and had every detail worked out for us. The accommodations were just right for two couples, each of us having a private bedroom and bath. The kitchen was well equiped to cook anything, but you will want to eat some of your meals at the amazing restaurants in the area. Every need was anticipated from kayacks and floaties to movies and games. The setting was peaceful, with very few people around, more people arrived on the weekend, but left weekdays. We enjoyed setting on the veranda looking at the view and watching the birds. When inside, we enjoyed the view from every window. We were able to take some amazing pictures! Do not hesitate to stay here, the photos accurately reflect the rental, it is clean and well maintained, the owner is helpful. Upon arriving, check out the binder in the apartment, it will help you plan your time while there! If we get the chance to return to Puerto Rico, this is where we will stay!
We had a wonderful family vacation here!!! The kayaks were a huge treat. Saved us a bunch of money and allowed us to spend time searching the area right outside our door! Chickens (fun surprise for us city folk), iguanas, sea life and birds galore. The place was deserted most of our visit and we had the pool to ourselves. The condo was beautiful and sparkling clean! Plenty of space and all the amenities we needed to prepare food. The owner was quick to respond to all of our inquiries. Amazing beach very near by with shady cover in the mangroves.
