Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a blast staying here! Loved every minute of it! Starting from a cake, and Sangria to 5 minutes walk to the beach. Air conditioning get so cold I had to turn to warm up LOL. Did shopping our first day and were mostly set for a week due to a huge refrigerator. Thank a bunch. Thanks.

Our Puerto Rican home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We love this condo and Don Pepe and his wife, who are always so helpful! The condo is always clean and comfortable for our family of 3. This winter will be our 4th year returning to Don Pepe's condo, and our 7th year returning to this area of the island. We just love Luquillo and its laid-back beach vibe--not to mention one of the most beautiful beaches in the country just a 2 min drive from the condo. We can't ask for more from our yearly escape from the cold NY winter.

We recommend Luquillo, and this condo in particular, to any of our friends. We're Brooklyn foodies, so when we aren't on the beautiful public beach you can find us at the Ceviche Hut in the nearby kioskos, or at La Estacion in Fajardo, but are always looking for new favorites that have opened in the year we've been gone. It's convenient that we can have breakfasts out in the garden while our daughter chases lizards before we head out to the beach for the day. On the occasional rainy day we've gone into Carolina to the amazing Children's Musuem, or up to the rainforest for a hike. So many wonderful things to do in and around Luquillo--or not do, if you're like us and just want to sit on the beach with a coco frio! And Don Pepe and his wife are always so hospitable with restaurant and activity recommendations whenever we're looking to try something new. Love this place and can't wait to return in less than 3 months! Counting the days

A very unfortunate experience!

  • 1 of 5

Sadly, we have to write that our experience in renting this home was difficult and costly for what was to be a very special holiday for our family. The home was filled with mildew, one of the air conditioners in a bedroom did not work, and the home smelled of bleach and mold. The garden contained construction materials, not a pleasant vacation spot. We found it necessary to find another place for our family at the last minute. Despite the owner being able to rent this home to others ,during our paid 6 week time, he has refused any reimbursement to us. We even offered to accept only 50 percent of the $5000 we paid in full for our stay , to offset any expenses he may have incurred for our ONE night stay. We have had no compensation.

Owner's Response: Hola Mrs Rebecca D . I certainly wish your husband is doing just fine and you . I will only say My Guests can see all the nice things they always have to say about me . With you and your husband I went the extra mile again but even more once you told me a few months later about your husband Terminal illness . My House Beach is made of cement very difficult to get any type of mildew . Air Conditioners due to Humidity in Our part of The Caribbean have to be cleaned every two months filters every week or two weeks . It depends on the use . I had my Air Conditioner technical employee come over the following day and he did clean your Air Conditioner The Best in the Market Fitjitsu Brand used by Pharmaceutical Laboratories in Puerto Rico such as Pfizer, Merck many other a Total of around 386 Companies and Laboratories . Your air Conditioner is less than a year Old . The Cost to Purchase and install was $3,000.00 . I want The Best for my guests and for Myself when I get a Chance to stay There . Your Family your Daughter and your son were not being charged additional after you told me a Few months later they would be joining you . Out of respect for your husband illness . My Charge to you per night was 20 percent less than regular price plus all amenities of over $300.00 monthly and all other Costs to Maintain a House on a Monthly Basis specially when the house is close to the beach . If I made any profit on your rental it would be around $800.00 for the 44 days you agreed on the Contract . The small Construction on Garden was to give my Guests more Privacy . It is a Flower Garden . It was almost finished. There is not any Material on left for anybody get hurt. I have Three Bbqs . My Guests can see pictures of The Villa and The Size . You as a Nurse told me there was mildew in a Wall in rear door entrance . I explained to you that those were marks from Rocking brown Chair you can see in Living room . No Mildew not even in Bathroom. Your House Beach was Cleaned Three days ahead I do not know How there was any Smell of Clorox . Yes I use Clorox and Lysol to Clean the Batrooms and Floors That's why all my Guests can find a Clean House . I have no rugs . I even told you I would set up a Christmas Tree (Martha Stewart ) so you could a Christmas Spirit with your whole Family . After you left I asked your permission to rent the House and I would refund most of the $4,800.00 That you Paid . I will refund $1,000.00 more than I collected from two rentals.

A very nice and affordable home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 8 nights in Don Pepe's house. Everything was very nice inside. Very clean. He met us at the airport, even though we were 2 hours late and led us to Solimar. The gated community is very secure and safe. Actually we felt very safe anywhere we went in Luquillo. He gave us tips on where to go in the area and is very helpful. A container of Sangria was waiting for us and on Saturday he stopped by with a sweet bakery treat. He has great landscaping around the home and a nice back yard. A high end Weber grill was nice to use. Every morning I would get up and walk and run on the beach and then go swim some lengths in the pool. We are hoping to get back to PR again next spring and if possible, rent again from Don Pepe.

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent a week at Mr. Cabrera's rental home, very comfortable, had everything we needed! Could walk out to the nearby beach or a quick drive to luquillo beach. Easy drive to El Yunque rainforest and old san juan. Pasta y Pueblo and Lolita's restaurants were excellent and nearby. Mr. Cabrera was a lovely host, answered all our questions and we truly enjoyed the sangria and the jelly roll! Would highly recommend!

Amazing Home away from Home - Super Amazing host!

  • 5 of 5

First off, Aurelio is one super amazing host. He provided all information needed, plus made you feel like part of the family (the part you actually like!). The condo is in a secure area with a private beach. It is easily accesable from San Juan - a really quick drive. The condo itself has everything you would want. Want to play on the beach? Take chairs, towels, buggie boards - anything you'd need, it's there. Want to have a nice day around the house - you really never have to leave, wi-fi, kitchen - a beautiful backyard. Don Pepe (Aurelio truely is a super host, he has anticipated and met every need a guest could have). We soon decided we would be back to PR, and to this condo. No need to search anywhere else. Plus - trust is the basis for any great relationship - you will have trust with Aurelio! I could go on and on - but why? If you're reading this - book this place. I would be more than happy to answer any questions....

Luquillo Beach most beautiful in The Caribbean.
Car: recommended

Hot ,Hot,Hot and Sunny Luquillo's' greatest assets are its' varied, beautiful beaches and its' easy access to San Juan and the Rain Forest. Balneario Luquillo is a calm crescent shaped beach lined with coconut trees. Blue /Costa Azul Beach has a small surf, La Pared Beach offers good surfing waves. and La Selva surfer’s beach is just east of Luquillo. If you find a better beach and price anywhere in the World please let me know.El Yunque rainforest peaks: Hike to La Roca, Los Picachos and El Yunque peak. Hacienda Carabalí mount an elegant Paso Fino horse and ride. September Festival del Coco; December Festival de Platos Típicos; March Luquillo celebrates a San José Patron Saint Festival. Festivities include dances, foods, parades and religious processions. The Villa is less than mile from Luquillo beach walking distance. No better place on Earth . Puerto Rico/U.S.A Does it Better. Come and enjoy The Best in the whole world only 25 Miles from San Juan Airport. We are simply the Best

Golf: Mr. Donald Trump is investing million dollars houses only 15 miles away.In Hawaii there is no area safe for Swimming only if you are a experienced Surfer and many good ones have perished. So come to the tranquil Caribbean nice and warm and Our People American citizens by birth the happiest and friendlier people in the planet. i rest my Case. See you soon.
