Great time nice location, very safe and quite. Will be coming her from now on.
Beautiful Beach property
April 4, 2013
My family of 4 stayed at Richard's place during Spring Break, and had a really nice time. The beach was beautiful, beds were comfortable, terrace was fabulous, and Lesley as helpful as anyone could hope for. We chose this area in order to get a real feel for PR life, but still be within a 20-30 minute drive to everything. It worked out great and just as we had hoped. If there is anything to be critical about, it would be the keys - beach/pool copies don't work so well and caused some frustration.

Warm, Firendly people, Great vacation!

I originally booked this unit for a week in August for my family of 4. The day we were supposed to go there was a tropical storm in PR. The owner, Richard, graciously allowed us to re-schedule for January. I had never rented a villa before and was traveling with my adult son who has autism so I was concerned about everything being in place before we arrived and had many questions. Richard was great about returning phone calls and e-mails promptly and addressing every concern. The property manager, Leslie, was also wonderful. She met us at the car rental counter, gave us keys and directions and we followed her car until we were headed in the right direction. It was like having a freind there. She kept in touch with us, sent the housekeeper to give us an extra set of keys and gave us suggestions about shopping for food and places to visit. The condo felt very safe and like home. It was peaceful and comfortable and the roof top terrace was the best! We started each day with a perfect view and spent every evening star gazing and listening to the ocean. I also met JC, the property manager at Villa del Mar, who gave me lots of tourism tips and his phone number in case we needed anything. I'm really glad we stayed outside of the city where it was so much prettier. We had no problems driving through Loiza- the roads were fine and directions to everywhere were simple. We did bring our GPS from home which was very helpful. Opening the front door was a bit tricky until we got the hang of it. My husband found some lubricant that he put on the lock which also helped. We didn't use the pool or the beach because we needed a key to access those and the copies we had did not work well (JC was able to get them to work with great difficulty) and we didn't want to go onto the beach and risk not getting back in. My only suggestion to Richard would be to leave the original set of keys or have copies made by a locksmith so they are easier to use. The view of the beach is fantastic but it doesn't have a wide stretch of sand and the pools were not large but were uncrowded. We were very happy at Loquillo beach which was just a short drive away, very pretty and not crowded at all. The food there was great but the restrooms were not clean. Horsebackriding along the beach at Catch A Dream ranch in Rio Grande was a hightlight. We really love Pueto Rico! It's the perfect blend of tropical beauty and modern conveniences and we will definetly be back.
Wonderful family vacation
January 2, 2013
This three bedroom condo had great furnishings, comfortable beds, a terrace facing the ocean, located in one of the twin towers, (Sandy Hill Apartments), in the midst of LuQuillo, a working class village on the ocean near to the eastern tip of the island. Luqillo municipal beach/park is first rate, and swimming is safe; but without waves. Escondido, a couple miles east has great waves, with rip-tide challenges, and a reef for snorkeling, and is reached by a trek through the mangroves. Adjacent to the apartment is a mile of national park beach, a precious solitary experience for us. the pool was excellent. With I-66, and route 26, Old San Juan is just an hour away. We returned for a second day! For food, the 60 kyoskos along Rt 3 less than a mile away offer fast food to truly excellent dining. What an adventure! The village square has a first rate coffee shop/bakery . El Yunque rainforest is less than a half hour away. We hiked all day. For this family vacation, we rented both apartments, and eleven of us were very comfortable. 8 per unit is a bit tight. Luquillo is an optimum location, so many varied activities so close by. Puerto Rico means affordability, very, very friendly people, great music. Puerto Rico is a part of the US, meaning it does not have the subservient servant class native population catering to rich tourists. My family won't go to those places. Despite some economic challenges, this is one big happy family, and you will be part of it. We didn't see a single mosquito anywhere; but use DEET in the evening anyway to be sure. Be sure to request a second set of keys unless you want to be tied to being together 24/7. Everything is kept locked.

Great condo right on the beach. A little hard to get to but well worth the trip.
Great rental for a great vacation!

Thank you for renting us your home for such a fabulous vacation! The directions from the airport were so easy to follow and we very impressed by private, beautiful property. The condo is very well furnished and the rooftop terrace is AMAZING! The location is very convenient with a Walmart nearby, as well as being within easy driving distance to any tourist activities we wanted. Thanks for sharing your home with us, we'll definitely be recommending it to others!

We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed your condo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Leslie left the keys for us at our rental car counter, so that was smooth. We came up with names for all of the lizards in the trees we could see each morning. Old San Juan is AMAZING, and we were able to do a snorkel trip but could not make it to Culebra due to rough weather. The beaches we did see were reallly nice. We did walk the rain forest also, which was great. So many good memories! Thanks!

We had such a great experience. We have three teenagers and they can not wait to come back to that place. This was the perfect spot for us: not to far from San Juan but not surrounded by big resorts, which gives a better idea of the local habits. The condo is ideally located a few steps from the beach - the waves help you fall asleep, not noisy. Most of the time we got the beach for ourselves. The top balcony gives you extra space for relaxing, great bbq and unforgettable sunset. We had trouble with our flights to get to San Juan at the expected time and Richard was very responsive and very flexible to accommodate our arrival. I would definitely recommend this condo.

Amazing Beach Front Condo!
May 18, 2011
We had a fantastic stay at the penthouse during an April vacation from New England. The condo had all of the amenities you needed for a comfortable stay, and breakfast, lunch and dinner up on the deck could not be beat. Very centrally located as well! We were at the marina in Fajardo for scuba diving in under 45 minutes, in the midst of El Yunque Rain Forest in about 20 and once we found the drive through de Pinoñes we made it to the airport in under 30 minutes. And yes, the Walmart 10 minutes away was convenient for shopping. Richard was very responsive to all communication and Omar our POC was fantastic at helping with some details. Loiza may not be for everyone, but the complex, the penthouse itself and beaches were exactly what we were looking for. Highly reccommend.
A veery nice place
May 10, 2011
The villa was very comfortable like home, the view was wonderful,and it was very quiet, it was near the rain forest, and 20 minutes from San Juan, we recommend it. the inside could need some fresh paint. The two swimming pool are very clean. Thank you for making our vacation so nice. Mona

Breath taking views from wonderful condo
March 16, 2011
3 of us stayed at this beautiful condo in early March. The apartment is stunning and the roofdeck with perfect. The location is a bit 'rural' but the quiet beach makes up for the location. Owner was very professional and had a local contact if anything went wrong. Condo complex is brand new and amentities are nice. Great for a quiet get away beach side.

Loved having the penthouse deck on top.We spent most of our time up there. Felt very safe and it was close to everything we had on our list to do. Loved hearing the ocean at nite.Very quiet and relaxing. Comfortable bed and had everything needed for an extended stay. Would love to go back.

Excellent Trip To PR
February 22, 2010
Richard, A quick note of thanks for letting us rent your condo in PR. We loved your place and San Juan overall. Great people, beaches, food and weather. We also enjoyed the rain forest and bio-bay….amazing. Karla was very helpful and we appreciate her help. Your father also came to the rescue one day when we locked our keys in the condo. Please tell him we appreciate him going out of his way to bring over a set of keys. I’m certain we will return. Thanks Greg & Dana Noe
Perfect little retreat
January 13, 2010
This was the perfect spot for a relaxing week in PR. We loved the massive roof deck patio. We ate dinner outside every night next to the grill and spent the morning leisurly reading the in the hammock. San Juan was 30 minutes away and we could find all of the supplies we needed at the near by walmart. Everything was close, but not too close. Thanks for a lovely vacation.

Great place and hospitality
August 1, 2009
What could be better. Coming back on the strip full of fiestas patronales. (That means a festival full of people on the streets full of dancing, drinking, biking, as we drive through it, trying to get to Gasolina.) Every night was spectacular. Thank you so much for your wonderful house. God bless. P.S. Don't forget - food and hospitality are available. And banging!

We absolutely loved our stay at this condo. It truly felt like we were in paradise. Most times we had the pool all to ourselves which was an added plus and the beach was just a stone's throw away. It was great waking up to the sunshine in the morning and making our way to the top of the penthouse to gaze at the beautiful blue water. And Karla, the concierge was amazing. We just loved her. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

The penthouse is really nice, i stayed with my family for two weeks and we love it. The view to the ocean is amazing and you are very close to it. the penthouse is very spacious and have all you need and more. The grill in the deck is perfect to having a nice family time while enjoy the sun and fresh air from the ocean. There is a tennis court in the complex and a small gym, so you can also keep in shape while you are in vacations. And the pool is perfect after the beach, wich, by the way, is very close to the penthouse, just a few steps forward. The concierge is so helpfull, she is very kind, and always available to make your staying as best as posible. I definetly recomend it, and can't wait to go again!.

My husband, son, daughter and her boyfriend stayed in this condo last week, and it was wonderful!! When we arrived, Karla, the concierge was on hand to greet and guide us there, and was just a phone call away the entire time. The condo is very well furnished (the couch was my favorite spot) and meticulously clean. It has everything you need to really enjoy the stay and feel right at home. The area is colorful (we would walk to the corner to buy fresh bread each morning) and we made friends with a local chihuahua named "Biscuit" who greeted us every day. The beach is just steps away so we got to enjoy the privacy, sun and the water. I can't wait to go back!! I would recommend this condo to anyone who wants to feel they are at a home away from home.

This penthouse is beautiful…usually descriptions on a website aren’t the most accurate but this certainly was. The unit was clean, spacious and the views from the rooftop are indescribable. This was my first trip to Puerto Rico, my husband, our friends & family have visited many times before and we were all impressed with this condo. We are actually planning to make PR an annual trip for our group and we would honestly say that we'd stay at this penthouse again.
Owner Supplied Testimonials
Amazing catering provided by Concierge: Karla. Girl, where do we begin. We had such an amazing time at your house. First of all, Club Gasolina is on the roof. Where the shows take place and the performances are amazing. (You saw this for yourself when you cooked us that amazing meal!) We got very little sleep in the bedrooms. Spanish Barbie slept on the comfortable breathtaking couch. By choice. We LOVED LOVED LOVED our time in Villas del Mar. THANKS A MILLION! Wendy Walker
Waking up in the morning at Villas del Mar with the fantastic sun beaming in the open windows. The sound of the ocean while we eat pasteles and drink coffee on the terrace. LOVE IT. Ocean Sky, Wonder Sun, Maguiver Starr, Ivory, Stella Star and Coco Skyy. The sound of the beats, and the clicking of heels, the girls were primped and ready for a full fantastic day. Full of activities. Beach. Pool. Beach. Pool. Snacks. Gasolina. Showtime. Dolled up. Hitting Old San Juan to New Yorican. The Pumps Family took over. Wendy Walker

My wife and I were lucky to acquire this unit. This unit was initially reserved for the builder of the "Villas del Mar" apartment complex before he decided to sell it. It turns out that this ideal vacation penthouse became available while we were staying in another unit. We went ahead and acquired it and we just love it. We always dreamed of having a true beachfront property. It is so close to the ocean you can hear the calming sounds of the waves with all the comforts of your home and then some.
