Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Higuillar - Dorado oceanfront

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

We have two rentals in our home on the ocean. The main floor unit has two bedrooms, full kitchen, one bath, living room, and deck. It can sleep five; two in each of the queen-size beds and one in the twin-size rollaway. sleeps 5 for $100 a night.

The unit upstairs has one bedroom, living room, full kitchen, one-and-one-half baths, two balconies, and a roof-top terrace. This unit can sleep five; two in the queen-size bed in the bedroom, two in the full-size rollaway, and one in the twin rollaway. sleeps 5 for $100 a night.

each unit is about 1200 square feet with a private entrance and use of a shared washer and dryer and front porch area. for both units that will sleep 10, cost

is $200 a night-

Our home is not in a resort but in a safe local neighborhood with long-term professional neighbors. We have finished building new steps

down to the beach plus have added a cement bar bq- We are on a 70-foot by 90-foot lot that is fenced. ....there is a surfer beach a block away plus many, many

other beaches in the area. Hey guys-we are a beach house--not the

Ritz-Please do not expect perfection-We just had a problem with some guests who shopped around for the cheapest vacation home for what we offer in puerto rico-then they got upset that there was a power outage & sometimes low water pressure-sometimes you may not have hot water if there is no sun (solar)- -you might see a bug-you might see some dirt-this is the caribbean-things like this happens-go & pay the price at a hotel if you can't handle an occasional problem-in other words, if you are fussy, you will not like us-we are clean but not spotless-the ocean breeze brings in a lot of dirt-being on the ocean rusts & deteriorates things very quickly-when there is a big storm, water will come in some windows & a couple of vents (can't be helped-happens to most oceanfront homes) but staying on the ocean is awesome-the sound of the waves lull you to sleep-we were planning on moving to this paradise of puerto rico-there has been some construction started but has been stopped (permit problem)-we just want people to have the proper expectation of our home-

we have a no smoking policy for the comfort of our future guests-

Our home is a ten-minute drive to world-class golf, beautiful hotels, and very central to the island's many tourist attractions-

We have a 5 night minimum-we feel

that we are the best value on the island for what we offer-the $100

price is per unit & not for the entire home-if you need to sleep

10, the rate is $200 a night for the whole house-

regarding the zika situation...we were at our home for 6 weeks this winter

2016--we did not see a bug--there is strong tradewinds being blown in when you are right on the ocean--it keeps the flying bugs away nicely--I

would only be concerned if you were going into a heavy wooded area & if you could be pregnant--

also there was a mention of our bar bq--we have one but the winds are so

strong it is impossible to light a fire--just so you know......

****also there is no booking fee for you with our home******

About diana

we live in michigan & now retired -someday it would be

wonderful to live in puerto rico-we really love it & the people-we spend our time

with our grandchildren & our dog & cat-we are very easy to reach so feel free

to contact us with any questions you may have about our property-

diana purchased this house in 2002

Why diana chose Dorado

my first husband al & I had been going to dorado puerto rico for about 25 years for vacations-dorado was always our

best city to stay at as it's so close to san juan without all of the congestion-we always rented

a condo or apartment for a month-a friend told us about this home for sale on the ocean & we just

fell in love with it-we had no idea about turning it into a vacation rental but we had to pay the

bills-we could not believe how it is an 12 month destination & so many people want to go to the

area-we get 3 to 5 inquiries a day-of course we have it priced very fairly & that helps-we don't

want it just sitting there vacant--there is no booking fee to book our home--

What makes this house unique

we really love our home & we are sure you will also-we also want you to have a realistic expectation of our home-it is far from perfect-when we are there we are constantly working on it-we are not for everyone.....

the salt water tears a home apart-the big storms will bring water in the windows & some vents (I heard it happens to most of the homes on the ocean)-our manager is

diligently working to keep the home nice-it will not be spotless (hotel clean)-that's impossible

on the ocean-if you are fussy, please go to a hotel or somewhere more expensive-you will love

being right on the ocean-nothing like it-our neighborhood is really special we feel-there are

roosters a block away-there are horses walking around-there is an iguana in our yard sometimes-

WHAT A WONDERFUL PLACE!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the first floor and my sister her husband, daughter and her boyfriend were on the second floor. My brother and his wife joined us for one night. The place exceeded our expectations! The views were from the roof were spectacular. The breeze and the sound of the pounding waves were wonderful and comforting. And we loved the view on the other side of the mountains (I think I could see El Yunque). The place itself was nice looking, clean, spacious with plenty of towels, sheets, washer, dryer, shampoo, tvs, etc. It was a little worn as you stated but we were simply delighted with the place and felt safe! I especially enjoyed climbing/hiking the rocks and enjoying the waves slashing! A great experience and I would definitely recommend it!

Tropical Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our vacation. The house is spacious, comfortable, and it feels like you're at home, unlike hotel rooms which are more cramped, has less privacy, and can arguably be the same price as this house, and maybe more. The weather in the area was perfect, even on rainy days; the house is not far from the local supermarket and some restaurants, and it is near Autopista (Highway) 22, which connects that area with the rest of Puerto Rico. When you have a good time, time seems to fly by, and that is what happened with our stay in the house. Us, living in the Las Vegas region, are used to very hot (105 degrees or more) and very dry (8% humidity or less) climates, but when we were at that house, to us it felt like a tropical oasis. The humidity along with the ocean breeze was very relaxing, and if you are just exploring Puerto Rico, it does not feel hot at all. Our family enjoys any kind of weather, and the weather in Puerto Rico was perfect. If you want to be in a comfy, spacious, and nice house with your family, we highly recommend this house. We rented both units. Thank you Diana (the owner) for giving us this opportunity with your property, and thank you Jessica (the manager) for welcoming us. We hope to stay there again in the future.

Heaven

  • 5 of 5

What more could we ask for than a house on a cliff overlooking the sea?

We could live in this house. It's bright and cheery, clean and spacious and has a comfortable at home feeling. We enjoy coffee with the sunrise and cocktails with the sunset on the deck above the sea. Playing in the warm surf at the bottom of the steps everyday is invigorating. The temperature is in the 80s and the breeze occasionally carries the sweet fragrance of Jasmine and Frangipani. It feels like we live here. Snorkeling is fun at the park about a five minute walk down the road. Walking in the friendly neighborhood is pleasant and safe. The convenience store, restaurants and bars are close by.

My wife Kim and I are in our mid-70s and I lived in the Caribbean islands for three of the last 50 years from Jamaica to Trinidad and Tobago. This rates at the top of my list of places to visit or live in. We will be back.

Breath taking view

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from our wonderful vacation in Puerto Rico with my 4 year old son and my parents. We couldn't have been happier with our accommodations and were thrilled to have found this house (which had SO much space, everything we needed, and was a lot more affordable than renting a hotel room.) We loved being able to sit on the roof (we rented the upstairs) and watch the sun rise and set and just soak in the beauty of the island. (There isn't a railing, but we just kept my little man close while up there.) No, it is not a new house, but it was perfect for us. Thank you Diana for sharing your home with us and thank you Jessica for taking such good care of us while we were there. This was definitely a vacation that we will never forget.
