About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This beautiful beach house, located in an area called Brenas, is 100ft from a secluded, semi-private cove which enjoys a quarter of a mile of white sandy beach. The cove/beach is ideal for swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, paddle-boarding, jogging, or simply sunbathing. To encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities, the house rental includes (at no extra cost) , kayaks, snorkeling equipment, floaties, boogie boards, etc.. The house consists of two floors. The upper floor comprises the sleeping area and has 4 bedrooms: a Master bedroom with a king-size bed; a 2nd bedroom with a queen bed; a 3rd bedroom with a double bed; and a 4th bedroom with two bunk beds which sleeps four. There is a small balcony on the 2nd floor, great for relaxing after an active day. The lower floor is an open plan area, with a kitchen, dining room, family room, and reading area. Outside there are two tables that seat ten people, a hammock (between two palm trees), and a gas barbecue. The Terrace overlooks the Dorado Beach Hotel golf course.

Brenas has been a well-kept secret of vacation-house-rental aficionados for the past 20 years. Renters love the beauty and privacy of the cove and beach, but also know that they are only a short drive away from a wide variety of great neighborhood restaurants, and only a slightly longer drive to the nightlife of San Juan.

Exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely gorgeous! We enjoyed every minute of it! The private beach was amazing, the water was warm and the beach was so clean. The house had so much space. We cooked and grilled and the doors that open up all around the house make for such and indoor/outdoor feel. It is centrally located between the caves and the rain forest and a short ride to Old San Juan. We had absolutely no complaints, everything was perfect!

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything everyone has said and more. We had plenty of space for 2 adults and 4 teenagers. The location is just right, not too far from everything, whether you are traveling east or west. And the beach was spectacular. Every time we went down (a one minute walk), we had the place to ourselves.

Diane was a lovely host. She gave us recommendations for restaurants and activities. She checked in with us by texting and answered any questions we had. Plus there are three binders with recommendations and reviews of area restaurants and activies from previous renters. That was extremely helpful. All the beach toys were great: masks and snorkels, paddle board, kayak and more for big kids and little ones along with bikes.

The kitchen is small but fully stocked with everything you need to make a great meal and there is a gas grill. There are several grocery stores nearby. Take advantage of the roadside stands for fresh mangos and pineapples. We even grilled some of the pineapple. Yum.

We had a wonderful time in Puerto Rico and this house added the extra "wow" factor I wanted for our family vacation. I would highly recommend this property and Diane to anyone looking for the perfect place to stay. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful, welcoming island home

  • 5 of 5

While I had seen the pictures on VRBO and read the wonderful reviews, our experience was even better than I ever hoped! The house is beautiful, and we loved opening all the doors and windows and letting the trade winds blow through, cooling the downstairs (all the upstairs bedrooms are air-conditioned). We also loved the patio and spent virtually all of our "at home" time there when we we were not on the beach. Diane is the most hospitable, kind host! I loved all the special touches like the fresh flowers she placed throughout the house! Our boys (ages 24, 22, and 18) love going out for dinner, but they loved the house and patio so much that we ended up cooking (actually grilling!) three out of the five nights we were there! We also enjoyed the kayaks, paddle board, and snorkeling equipment! We loved our catamaran excursion to Culebra (recommended by Diane), but our sons just wanted to stay at our beach on the last day! One of my favorite times was walking on the beach every morning and picking up sea glass! The boys did not turn on the TV a single time during our entire vacation. It was one of the best family times we have ever had! I hope we will have the opportunity to return in the future!

Words can not describe how satisfied we are with the hospitality received. The family had a grant time. We took advantage of everything the property and location had to offer. We will be back. The place comes highly recommended.

The house is great!

  • 5 of 5

Diane is wonderful and kind! Her house is in an excellent location with private beach, near shopping centers and the expressway is near.

I rented Diane's house for a family of 9. The following are my comments to be helpful:

1. Two level house with no central air but there are air conditioners in each bedroom that brought needed comfort. The upstairs is divided by two sections connected by a spacious walkway, each section has two bedrooms with full baths. Also, the second level has large glass patio doors, entry to overhead balcony where I sat with my daily morning cup of coffees; it is lovely.

2. The bathroom windows do not have screens, only metal shutters, some can close or not. There were many mosquitoes in the bathrooms, recommend Off Yard Spray. We sprayed the windows and doors to repel them, it helped.

3. Spacious living/dinning and family room w/large patio doors, no screens - no central air on first level of house; air only in bedrooms. We were there in 90 degree sweltering heat inside & out of the house (Jun - July) - we had to leave doors opened. Mosquitoes were in the house, recommend using Off Yard Spray, use on the bushes, doors and windows to control mosquitoes coming inside the house. It is inevitable, you will be bitten but helps to defend yourself. Also, buy contact spray for indoors to killed mosquitoes instantly, that helped.

4. Great fridge with filtered water. House has dishwasher & washing machine both with detergent. There is a dryer. All of it awesome!

5. House has awesome bikes, kayaks, snorkel gear & paddle boards.

Overall, the house was great for my large family and I would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. It is very rare for moquitoes to be a problem in the house. Tropical tradewinds from the ocean blow steadily throughout the year and, almost always, keep the house mosquito-free. I am sorry that you had to experience one of those rare occurrences when it wasn't, and can all but assure you that you would not be bothered by mosquitoes on a future visit. I am pleased to see that you enjoyed yourselves so much that you would defnitely stay at the house again; I, in turn, would love to have you back as guests! Diane
