Beautiful location, perfect beach getaway

  • 4 of 5

We were traveling 3rd time to PR with 2 small children (2.5 yrs and 5 months) along with another family member, so 3 adults 2 kids. We arrived at nighttime and are a bit familiar with driving in PR however found it a little dark and desolate (moderately empty apt complex) upon arrival without an escort (we booked last minute perhaps that is why) but perhaps you will need a bit of guidance to arrive at place if after dark. So at first were a little concerned about the actual place, there was no working washer and dryer and that was not told prior they should definitely fix that as it is needed especially with a family. Once settled in, it is a great place to stay to be close to spend day at beach and come back and freshen up. Short walk to the beach basically right in front of the condo, which we would enjoy before morning coffee and breakfast outside. Helps as having little ones it is difficult to always get in the car to enjoy something so this was perfect for us! The beach had moderate waves and was not many people so we enjoyed it immensely, there was a wagon and beach toys my daughter loved! Close to San Juan and EL Yunque, had most ammenities in place however I would suggest adding more sheets, blankets and some hand towels as there was not enough for us especially since we only had laundry service once, which was offered at our convenience since there were not working. Overall, it was a good stay and I would recommend again to someone close or for ourselves, I would just suggest having a GPS with you to travel to location or have someone meet you at airport.

Unbelievable beach access

  • 4 of 5

Spent a week here with my two teenage sons. It was a great base for Luquillo, Fajardo and El Yungue and trips to Old San Juan. The apartment was very clean and modern. The access to the beach is absolutely fantastic. I hate staying at a resort where it is an ordeal to get to the beach. Here you just walk out the patio door and walk a few steps to a very quiet, almost private beach. For this price it is a fabulous amenity!! The only reason I would not give it five stars, is that a few things either did not work (washer & dryer) or were too complicated to figure out (remote controls for all the televisions), and the pots and pans for cooking need to be replaced (teflon peeling off). They could also use some dish towels (especially because there is no dishwasher) and towel bars in the bathroom. That said, it was still a great place, with fantastic amenities for this price.

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a great family trip to Puerto Rico. The condo looks just like the pictures and worked really well for us. It was very clean and only steps to the beach. It was great to have access to beach toys, and there were also some kids toys and games. We spent a lot of time at the pools and the beach. There is an outdoor hose which was really helpful to wash all the sand off after a day at the beach. There is security at the complex which makes it feel very safe and secure. There were a few minor things broken in the condo, but the only one that affected us was the dryer (which didn’t work at all). However, the owner was very helpful and arranged for the cleaning service to pick up laundry and towels a couple of times during the week. The condo complex was pretty empty given the time of year - we would have liked to run into more people. But that has more to do with timing than the rental itself. If someone was looking for a beach rental in Puerto Rico, I would recommend this unit.

INCREDIBLE RELAXING

  • 5 of 5

Totally recommended for a family vacation away from it all!

We stayed for a long weekend with a family of 6 and it could not have been more relaxing.

The gorgeous terrace was wonderful to enjoy our breakfast with partial ocean view and have yummy BBQ’s at night time. The mile long beach is almost at the door step and offers activities for everyone. We could run or simply stroll on the beach, the little once had fun with the waves on the boogie board and further out the water was calm enough to swim a couple of kilometers. There was even a tennis court which we could use free of extra charge. The complex also has a pool, but we didn’t even get the chance to use – that’s how wonderful the beach was.

The apartment itself is very nicely remodeled and fully air-conditioned with everything you need and more – it has 6 TV screens, really! We didn’t use them that much, but it was very pleasant to have a cool place to relax during lunch hours, because the sun in PR is strong – even in October. The kitchen is well equipped, has even a washer/ dryer and to have 2 bathrooms was super helpful.

We will be back for sure!!!

EXCELLENT BEACH FRONT CONDO

  • 4 of 5

I was traveling with my family from Florida to go to a wedding in Rio Grande area. The apartment was perfect for us, including for the little ones! Just the right size, well equipped, clean, confortable and as an architect i appreciate all the nice design details through the apartment. Host was always available for our questions and request. Close to restaurants and supermarket. Nice beach and pool. We will definately be back! THANKS

Fantastic beach apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at this wonderful apartment last week and very much enjoyed it. We had 4 adults and 2 kids in our party and we were all comfortable. The owner was very accommodating with respect to our arrival and departure times and was very responsive as well whenever we had questions. The apartment is well equipped and beautifully decorated. We loved being so close to a nice calm beach and the kids loved the kiddy pool in the pool area. The complex is mostly used by locals so it feels more like a true beach home rather than a luxury hotel/tourist complex. There are supermarkets nearby and getting there from the airport is a cinch. We hope to be back soon!
