Guestbook comments from the owner

After flying all night to Puerto Rico it was indeed welcoming to meet Alberto on his wonderful property early in the sunny morning with wonderful views of the beaches and ocean below. He took the time to show us around and explain everything in the informational booklet that he had prepared. It was clear that he would do everything possible to make sure that we enjoyed ourselves. He even delivered a lost earring to us after we had already checked out at the end of our stay.



We shy away from the resorts since they never give the true picture of where you are for our daughter of 14 and son of 11. This property was great since it had wonderful views during the day and we fell asleep to the sounds of ocean waves and chirping frogs at night. The main attraction of this home is the large porch where you do most of your cooking and eating with a perfect view of everything. There is even an outdoor shower that is especially nice after returning from the beach.



We visited six different beaches in PR but I must say that the beach down the hill from Alberto’s was our favorite! One side stretches a mile long where I would harvest a coconut every morning. At the extreme end that is jungle, sand and rocks. Although this beach is covered with excellent sand, the waters edge is rock so it was not a swimming beach for us; just an excellent walking beach that we had totally to ourselves. The smaller beach was the swimming beach with excellent snorkeling using the snorkeling gear that Alberto provided. There is plenty of sunny sand but also the shade of the coconut trees. This beach was never crowded and had a nice mix of a few tourists (like ourselves) and locals.



I won’t try to describe other things in the area that we enjoyed but there is plenty to see and do. We will always remember our stay at Alberto’s house!



Thanks,

Owner's Response: Tommy and his family were great guests. Very low maintenance. It has been busy for us. We have had lots of guests, one after the other and normally we like some times between them for all the details. Tommy's family and his cleanliness really helped.

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

Alberto, Wendy & Javier were perfect hosts and their house was exactly what we were looking for. Easy walk to an awesome beach, laid back atmosphere, hammocks for everyone...

We would recommend stocking up on groceries (they provided directions to a store) because by the time we got off the beach it was tough to find places to grab dinner.

BEST Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here twice now. The first time we went out and explored the island, Old San Jaun, rainforest hikes, adventures... It is a perfect distance to get anywhere. And this time we just relaxed, bough food to stay in for the most part and enjoyed relaxing on the beach - Although we did head over to see some petroglyphs nearby. We have been here twice in four months now, if that is any indication of how much we have enjoyed it.

The owners are wonder and very helpful, will tell you everything you need to know from grocery shopping to restaurants to adventure tours and more. Perfect place :)

Relaxation at Mar Chiquita

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for ultimate relaxation, this is your place. The house is secure, clean and well equipped with all essentials. Cooking on a gas burner in the open-air terrace was a new experience but did not pose any problems whatsoever. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. Easy walk down to the beach. Only 15 minutes from the Vega Baja balneario where we snorkeled and did some open water swimming. Close to supermarkets and stores. Alberto's son greeted us upon arrival and provided with all the information needed. We could have not had a better start to our two-week vacation in PR.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a ten night stay at this property. This was our second visit and we had a very enoyable stay! The hosts (Wendy and Alberto) are incredibly helpful and accomodating. The property has a stunning ocean view, much privacy and a comfortable deck. Manati is centrally located and with our rental car we were able to explore much of the island including San Juan and numerous beaches. This place is great if you are looking for a affordable option away from the typical tourist areas. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Gary, Michele and their two kids were great guests and a beautiful family. We do try to model our service after the European concierge, not invasive but always available to help. We understand how important family vacations are. When guests trust us with that important event, we must do everything we can to earn that trust.
