About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath Rustic Beach House Located Across The Island From San Juan In

The Space

You will not find many places that so truly reflect the true Puerto Rican beach town vibe -- a little gritty, a little old school, and amazing for the natural beauty and old world Latin charm. The house will comfortably fit 8, with one master bedroom, one kids room with bunk beds and a pull out bed, and a separate upstairs suite accessed by an exterior stairway that has a king bed, several cots and a separate bathroom. Lots of outdoor patio space, internal living space is small, but you should be outside enjoying the weather! Perfect for one large family or two families with a couple kids each.

Guest Access

Three beaches within a 5 minute walk (and that's beach walking, not city "walking"), great local gems, but also McDonalds, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Chili's and mainland style grocery stores within a short drive. Two malls, the cities of Ponce (museums, the Don Q mansion, the famous firehouse, etc.) and Mayaguez (the zoo, the university, etc.), surfing in Rincon, fishing and relaxing on Gilligan's Island, the colonial village of San German, the Guanica Dry forest preserve, coffee farms, native ruins, Arrecibo, golf, casinos and many other attractions within. 30-40 minute drive.

Interaction with Guests

We live in Boston, accessible by phone/text/email, but have a great caretaker to welcome you to the house and be nearby for any issue.

The Neighborhood

Three beaches a walking distance from the house, and some food windows a short walk away, and lots of nearby restaurants, gas stations, and stores a short drive away. It's a small beach town so most things get quiet early, though there is a pool hall down the street if you are adventurous.

Getting Around

No real public transport. Need a rental car.

Other Things to Note

The house is rustic -- no phone, AC only in the two first floor bedrooms (nice breeze in the upstairs bedroom), three bathrooms in old-school lovely neon pastel colors, tv and vcr/dvd player with no cable. You can pull a solid cell phone connection, but hopefully you are looking to disconnect. It's a get-away designed to get away, not stay connected to work or your favorite tv shows.

Great place! We really enjoyed our stay. The property has everything necessary and is very well taken care of as it is described on the website. We loved the beaches. Mr. Joe was very friendly and had everything ready upon our arrival. Thank you, Mr. Mach and Mr. Joe. We hope to return next year!

Doesn't really tell the truth

  • 3 of 5

Water was an issue... there was no water or very little pressure... they say there are linens but there was no linen for the king bed upstairs... not a good place to stay with a family and children...

Owner's Response: Abigail -- I am very sorry if you did not enjoy your stay. The water pressure in town is outside of our control, and is really the purview of the local water authority. That being said, we have had many renters at the house in the past, and the water pressure has always been acceptable. My apologies if it was particularly an issues during your stay. As for linens for the king bed, they are in the closet -- I am sorry you did not find them, and would have been happy to have our caretaker help you out if you had let me know about the issue. I did reach out to you after you checked in to offer any assistance I could, and the below was all I heard back: "Thanks a lot... we're having a great time and [the caretaker] is wonderful..."

House has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The inside is small but the outside space makes up for it and more. Near enough to beach so you can walk and at the same time keep away from the noise of the crowded beaches. Loved Manglillo Beach. Lots more private than Playa Santa.

Great time and place!

  • 5 of 5

We have a great time. Plenty of space with a great backyard with a bar, and barbecuing. Also great porch and two Hamacas to take a siesta. The house has towels, eating utensils and cooking utensils, just bring yourselves, food and enjoy. It is a quiet street and close to playa Santa and other beaches in the area. We probably come back again during January or February of next year. And plenty of space to dispose of the trash as well! Yes we had a great time!!! The price is a dream!!!!!
