We bought this beautiful villa because it is so close to the beach.
The condominium ambience, it’s so calm that it invites you to sit, relax and have a glass of wine or read your favorite book.
Just returned from a wonderful beach side villa for three weeks. Antonio was an excellent host. He met me at the villa showed me around and made me feel very comfortable. I had asked him for his recommendations on beaches and within 24 hours he had sent me a text with everything that I needed. Antonio was ready to answer any questions that I had. The fact that I was able to use the beach and chairs at the Embassy Suites made this an extremely accommodating place. The neighbors were extremely welcoming and made me feel right at home. To wake up every morning to have my morning coffee with a magnificent view of the ocean was spectacular. The villa was extremely clean upon my arrival. You are approximately 35 minutes from San Juan but honestly there is so much to see and do east of Dorado. The town is only a couple of minutes drive from the villa with good restaurants, grocery stores, and drug stores. I am already looking forward to going back next year.
If you are considering this condo for vacation rental - do it, you will not be disappointed. Antonio (owner) answered every email, phone call that I made to him before arriving and when we arrived he was waiting for us and took us on a tour of the grounds (in the dark). He had sent 'things to do, places to eat' beforehand and is a super nice guy.
The condo was clean, spacious and served our needs. It is not far from San Juan or any other tourist attraction. We will definitely stay here again if we come back to PR.
Five star for the price.
Just returned home from a week @ Antonio's wonderful beach side Villa. All was as described and Antonio is a nice host. He checked us in and then left us alone. Not the Ritz Carlton to be sure but a very comfortable, safe villa which was in nice clean condition and the grounds and pool are on great shape. The common area appears to have been recently renovated.
Our daughter is attending school in Bayamon and we had to commute there twice a day. This was approx. 40 min each way (19 mi.). The villa was far better than the Hotel where we would have stayed in Bayamon. Beautiful setting on the N. shore. Roughly 35-40 mins. to Airport and downtown (light traffic).
For first timers in P.R. the traffic is bad--similar to a big US city-sometimes worse. The custom seems to be: drive aggressively and someone will give way. Driving is a treat as most traffic laws are taken only as suggestions. It is a little annoying until you realize that it works very well, the traffic almost flows better as a result, and no one seems to get road rage. Limited access highway driving is much the same as our Interstates.
Also note the barb wire fence along the shore line...everything in P.R. is fenced or gated (at least near San Juan). This community is double security gated. We always felt completely safe.
Thanks again Antonio
I am originally from Puerto Rico and we have family in the country so we were looking for a place that was just like home. (We stayed in Dec 20 2012 but the calendar wouldn't go that far) We found it! The villa was clean, in great condition and had all the necessary things (towels, kitchen utensils, BBQ, etc.). The location can't be beat. It is steps from the beach and the pool is great. There were three of us including my 2 year old daughter. This place is great for families because in addition to having a playground and a waddle pool the beach is so close that the only thing you need to take is your towel. The villa is located in a gated community by a hotel and it is just a short drive to San Juan. You have a Walgreens and a 24 hour grocery store less than 5 minutes away. I highly recommend Antonio’s place!!!!
This property was exactly as described and the owner Antonio was very nice and very easy to rent from.We didn't have any problems or questions during our stay.The grounds are well maintained and access to the beach is right next door.We would definitely stay here again.
What a great place to stay in Dorado. Everything was as advertised. We felt very safe inside the gated community but also the privacy desired. A short walk from the beach which was perfect for swimming. Antonio was a phone call away and was very helpful. We would definitely stay again. Perfect retreat for any family style very clean house.
There is a casino on the Dorado Embassy Suite. From the beach-villa, you can walk o exercise along the Sardinera beach trail located at the west side of the condominium. The Dorado Fishing Village is next to the condominium where you can purchase fresh fish directly from the fishermen as the return from the open sea around noon time every day.
