CAN I JUST SAY WOW!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is AWESOME SAUCE!!!!! The view WOW! to die for!! We had some issues with keys but Alana made sure it was taken care of even went to the office and came back with the beach key. The first night we left the French doors open and to the sounds of the ocean awesomeness .The condo has everything you need. Towels, bedding, dishes, boogie boards...etc. which spent two and a half hours using in an warm water NICE!. So if your thinking of renting this unit just bring your clothes! There's a washer & dryer in the unit even! The neighborhood is very quiet & the building is very secure. I cannot wait to go back to Puerto Rico either December or January we will be here.. :-) Thank you, Alana! Oh yes by the way the jet skis you see in the backyard your Oceanview you could rent those from the beach down the road. I recommend them, polite and friendly.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a great review. My wife and I are very pleased that you had such a great experience in our home away from home. Alana is just awesome and I'm glad to see she resolved the key issue quickly. We agree that boogie boarding in the bay is outstanding and the sound of the ocean at night just can't be beat. Thank you for choosing our condo to stay at and we hope to see you again in December or January. Let us know if there is any way we can assist you in the future. Paul & Karlene By the way, good to know about the jet ski rental. Down at the Kioskos you can also rent kyaks and paddle boats.

Great stay with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

We were going to rent another condo, but the view from here won us over. I am glad we did, because being able to walk out to the beach in only a few steps was a great decision. Everything in the condo was clean and comfortable. The four doors open to the balcony and the hammock was great for naps and relaxing. The kitchen was well stocked with what we needed to cook. the AC units worked well, and it was nice to have on site laundry. The next time we need a getaway, we will definitely look here first! Alana is a great hostess/ owner! thank you for making our vacation easy and relaxing!

Nice condo and great service

  • 4 of 5

The condo was exactly as advertised and everything worked as promised. It is a little tricky to find, so be sure to ask for specific directions. Alana was a great help and gave many good tips for our visit. The neighborhood may be a bit "adventurous" for some, but it was a secure site and most would feel fine there.

You cannot beat that view!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is AMAZING!! The view is to die for!! I slept in a hammock, on the balcony for 2 nights & the other 3 nights, we left the French doors open & fell asleep to the sounds of the ocean. Alana is fabulous! We had a small problem with our rental car after arriving at the airport, which caused us to run late & Alana was great about meeting us later than expected. The condo has everything you need. Towels, bedding, dishes, sunscreen, boogie boards...etc. Just bring your clothes! There's a washer & dryer in the unit even! The neighborhood is very quiet & the building is very secure. I cannot wait to go back to Puerto Rico & I would stay here again in a second! Thank you, Alana!

Needs some repairs.

  • 3 of 5

The condo was clean, a bit small and in need of some repairs. The lock on the balcony was broken, the lock on the front door broke and the key to the lower gate worked our upper gate. The couch was beat. The area seemed a bit sketchy and the beach this time of year is not accessible. On the positive side the view is beautiful and the breeze lovely. The kitchen was well equipped. Alana, the property manager, is wonderful. She had everything ready, dealt professionally with flight delays, was punctual and pleasant at check out and helped me get immediate and appropriate medical help when I had a bad reaction to an antibiotic. Thank you!

Beautiful and Wonderful view with ocean breezes

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Maritza for making it a great stay! and for coming to get us the first nite. Yes! We got lost. But, Maritza got us to the condo, safely. She provided us with her contact numbers and brochures for various activities. The condo was also, very secure. And, it was very clean, and we had plenty of towels for the stay. It had all utensils, frig, microwave, toaster oven, stove. And, the beautiful view from the balcony/patio, was gorgeous, and the sound of the ocean was breathtaking. It was nice just being out on the patio. I will say that the owners should fix the door to the patio/balcony though, it did not work, and we had to prop a chair in front of the door to keep it shut. Especially, when we had a storm on NY's eve nite. Also, you should have some kind of universal remote to make watching TV a little easier. Switching between the 2 remotes wasn't the easiest way to watch TV. But, having the TV, Wifi and cable was a nice feature and amenity.

But, being close to the kiosks was great, we could walk from the condo to the Luquillo food stands and enjoy all kinds of cuisine. Awesome! We also did quite a bit of site-seeing..................went to the El Yunque Forest, Old San Juan(Ft. Morro and San Cristobal). Also, we swam and tried boogie boarding in the ocean, (Luquillo Beach)(Seven Seas Beach) and it was great. We did a little snorkeling behind Luquillo food stands at that beach. I think the snorkeling would have been better if we would have taken a tour. But this time of year the ocean isn't very calm. Still swimming in the ocean in Dec/Jan is priceless, and being out in the sun is awesome. The weather was in the mid 80's during the day and at nite in the low 70's. You can't get better than that. If it rained it didn't last long during the day. I would like to come back and explore the neighboring islands Culebra and Vieques, too. There is so much to see here, and this condo is conveniently located. You are far enough away from the big city of San Juan, so you have peace and quiet. Also, you are close to the Luquillo kiosks and beach access. Even though we were by the beach, we couldn't use the beach out in front of the condo. The water's were too rough and high, no beach, but that is the time of year, so remember that if you want to come to PRico. All in all a relaxing trip.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and I’m so happy you had a fun and relaxing vacation. It looks like you hit many of great attractions near the condo. It’s central location, and the view from the balcony were the main reasons my wife and I fell in love with the condo. We are happy to hear our guests feel the same way. The next time you return to PR I strongly recommend making the trip to Flamenco Beach in Culebra or Sun Bay Beach in Vieques. Both are breathtaking and worth the ferry ride. We thank you for mentioning that the door to balcony is in need of repair. We will get that fixed right away. Also, we hadn’t considered purchasing a master remote but that is a very good suggestion. We are very proud of our little slice of paradise and want to keep it well maintained. We are always looking to improve the condo so we take your comments seriously. I’m sorry that the beach in front of the Condo was directly accessible during your stay. As we point out on HomeAway, direct beach access does depend on the time of year. Fortunately, as you found, there are 6 other beaches Luquillo; several are within walking distance and none are more than a few miles away. All beaches in PR are public beaches. Again, I’m so pleased you had a great vacation and I hope you choose to stay with us again. We do offer a discount for returning guests.
