A Stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfectly situated for picturesque views and time outside. We enjoyed walking the beach, snorkeling in the reef out back, kayaking and swimming on the beach a short walk down the shore. There is wildlife galore. Every morning, we had coffee with the lizards on the porch while watching the Grackles and marine birds (Egrets, Pelicans, terns and more) catch their breakfast. We saw a wide variety of fish and crabs, some just from the beach. Sunrises are spectacular and the house is close to the rain forest and the fabulous beach in Luquillo and it is less than an hour from Old San Juan. But, the porch is so nice, you may not want to leave. There are screens, so mosquitoes stay outside. The chairs in the dining room and the beds are high off the ground, which may be a challenge for senior citizens, but the house is comfortable inside. If you want a relaxing place away from the hustle and bustle, this is it. The sunrises and night sky are not to be missed.

We had a blast.

  • 5 of 5

The house was really nice and clean. Everything worked well. We had ac issues in one of the bedrooms by the kitchen.

The beach out front is good for snorkeling in certain areas. We saw lots of fish octopus /squid urchins etc. You can walk down the beach if you want to just swim.

We tried to get out to Culebra via the ferry but got there to late(7:15) lines were very long and we were told that we probably won't be able to get on.

The outdoor kitchen and grill were really useful. There is also a refrigerator out there.

Oh end also El yunque is worth a trip. LA Mina Falls were great. Fresh water dip, but again get there early. I did a loop hiked in at the first entrance and went past the falls and came out at the Colorado picnic area and walked down the road back to the car. It does not take as long as the maps in the park say.

3rd time renter

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd time renting this property. We loved the property from day one. The owners have continuously updated the property year after year. We not only get excited to stay at this fabulous vacation rental but look forward to seeing and enjoying the improvements that have been made. We enjoy the privacy without feeling isolated. The house is always spotless and because it is totally screened in it is for the most part bug less as well. My family is always looking forward to our visits. The property manager is very well informed and an amazing chef. He prepared the most amazing home cooked meal for a reasonable fee. Sunrises and Moonrises are always spectacular along with star gazing. The beach directly behind the house is more of a sea shell picking type of beach but a short walk along the sand, you come up to rolling waves and swimming.

Year after year, we love this house even more.

Second Time Renter

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time renting this home and again we were not disappointed. The view is spectacular (there was a full moon during this visit and it was just stunning). The home was perfect, clean, comfortable and the bedding was clean and crisp. However we spent most our trip outdoors, whether it was in the water or enjoying the sea breeze from the covered patio. My favorite spot was the hammock, my husbands was the bbq grill, which by the way theres an full outdoor kitchen where you will find the bbq grill, beach chairs, water shoes in all sizes and some snorkeling equip. The outdoor area was welll maintained and no wild dogs to be seen. Didn't see any roaches or insects as another renter mentioned and found the furniture to be comfortable and clean for a rental home. The house is screened throughout which keeps mosquitoes and insects away.

As with our previous visit the owners are always very responsive and attentive to any requests we had. Thanks again for a perfect vacation, look forward to returning next year

My Dream

  • 5 of 5

Have you every dreamed of being on a beautiful deserted island on the beach sitting in your lounge chair drinking a margaritas then this is that place! It was everything I thought it would be beautiful sun and sunset. Where you take long walks ,sit and listen to the waves. When the tide was low you could sit in the water and do my favorite thing finding sea shells. I lived outside with beach, patio furniture and outdoor kitchen just went in the house to sleep basically. Found the house to be efficient and comfortable. With the house being all screened in had no problem with mosquitoes ,roaches or insects of any kind.I hardly cooked went out to the restaurants and enjoyed every minute of the authentic Puerto Rican food. I can't wait to go back to see Puerto Rico and everything it offers and the beach house with those beautiful sunsets that just took my breath away. This place was everything the website said it was and the pictures did not lie!

Girls Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful few days. The beach house was exactly as described on the website, so no one should be surprised by anything upon their arrival. Walking into the place felt like home, very clean and the accommodations were great. Every morning we packed the cooler with drinks and snacks and just sat in the ocean relaxing enjoying the beautiful weather. We did go to some great restaurants in the area and did a bit of sightseeing. Mainly we stayed on the property. It felt like paradise. Good friends, good food, and nothing but the sound of the waves. What more could you ask for. We plan on making this an annual getaway.
