About The Owner

We have lived in the Washington, DC area since 1984 where we raised our son and still live. We always go to Puerto Rico to visit family, vacation and to spend time at the beach in Manati where my wife grew up. On the spring break of 2009 my wife went to visit her sister and met our son who was also visiting with some colleagues from work. The property across the street from her sister was for sale and she came back with the idea of purchasing it! On July 2009 the task was accomplished. Now we want our place and "our" beach to be "your place and your beach". Mi casa es su casa!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2009

Why The Owner chose Manati

The property we purchased was part of a farm that was owned by my wife's grandfather, her parent's last house was in the neighborhood and her two sister live there too. And... there's Mar Chiquita Beach, the beach where she spent her growing years.

What makes this apartment unique

The location of the apartment offers the best setting for you, a two-minute walk to the beach, great ocean view and the benefits of the Trade Winds always blowing and assuring you winter temperatures in the low 80's F and low 90's F in the summer. We are conveniently located 35 miles west of San Juan's (SJU) Luis Munoz Marin International Airport away from the tourist crowds.

Apartment close to Los Tubos

  • 5 out of 5
This is a very nice apartment close to two very nice beaches, MAr Chiquita to go with your kids, snorkeling maybe or boogie-boarding, and Los Tubos, great for expert surfers or boogie-boards.
The apartment has everything you need, including washing machine and dryer, cooking tools, air conditioning... Our apartment on the 1st floor had no view, but the second floor has an ocean view. You will need a car for shopping and going out, but you will sleep peacefully

Owner's Response: Thank you! We are glad your family enjoyed your stay. We are planing to do a BBQ area on the roof where you will have a great ocean view and enjoy a nice breeze. Hopefully, we will do it in the fall. We hope to see you again!

excellent property, awesome location

  • 5 out of 5
A very well maintained property with an excellent location. Cuca and Arturo are very attentive and respond quickly to your requests. Place is very clean, and have everything you need, and is exactly as advertised. Perfect for a romantic getaway, or family trip, beaches like Mar Chiquita, and La Poza de las Mujeres, are one of the best beaches in PR. There are several beaches in the area for different activities like snorkeling, surfing, or just relax. We had a great time. Thanks for everything.

Great Location!

  • 5 out of 5
Get away from the tourist and enjoy a great local family beach. The property was fantastic, as was the location. The fact that the local beach was almost totally enclosed by rock walls made it a gentle, peaceful beach. My third trip to the island and I will go back to Manati. The owner was easy to deal with and I recommend the top floor for the view and ocean breezes.

A great spring break

  • 4 out of 5
This property was exactly what I was looking for , when booking a rental for two couples. We just enjoyed our spring break at this apartment and could not have asked for a better place. We spent 6 nights at this location, and loved every minute of it. The house is just a 5min walk from the beach and the beach itself is gorgeous!

Weekdays the beach is beautiful and quite, and on weekends the beach is so much fun, filled with food stands and music, great environment!

Truly glad we found this place, and hopefully on our next trip to Puerto Rico we will be able to return to this great apartment.

This was a good place to stay..

  • 4 out of 5
My sister and I and my two kids came here about two weeks ago and stayed for a week. It was decent, not FABULOUS and not shabby. I was happy with the television (YAY) since most places dont have cable, and was just glad the kitchen had a variety of cookware and such. This apt was close to the beach and was clean. The air was too cold, so cold I got sick on the 5th day from not anticipating how cold it would get! The area was nice, peaceful and quiet. The things I didnt like have no real reflection on the property. The beach was rocky, the area around the apt was too far from things to do, and there are no REAL street signs and no good directions from the property. The only things that would have made it better would be that back door-- it takes forever to get it to close or lock... and the internet. The internet only works in the living area and drops repeatedly in the bedrooms. I was on a brand new out of the box laptop and this was happening to all 3 laptops while in the property. Other than that, the pics describe this property to a T and payment was a breeze and the managers did help in trying to get us directions and show us what was in the area. Kudos to you guys, I had a blast!!

I wanted to say thank you for everything! Your place is wonderful and hope to use it again in the future!
