We had such a great time in Puerto Rico. The owner of the house is such a terrific person. She was so helpful and very accommodating. The house was is close to the beach but far enough away from the tourist traps. It was also very close to a bunch of restaurants and cute shops. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

“True to the Photos and Property Descriptions”

Great, laid back, down to earth, relaxing place in a local neighborhood. The house suited our needs perfectly (five of us). It was definitely clean and well maintained. Feeling the breeze while lying in a hammock and looking at the stars was just what we needed to unwind. No doubt our favorite spot was the second floor balcony.

The house is nicely decorated, and obviously to us some of the eclectic pieces were brought by Yoa from her travels abroad – the Moroccan ceiling lamps, a Brazilian hay hammock, handmade Bulgarian rug. Local Puerto Rico arts and crafts creations are also part of the decor. The pictures the description of the property are true to what the house has to offer. We did not miss any amenities and we cooked dinner half of the time we were there.

We had a great week hosted by a knowledgeable and always responsive Yoa. The restaurants she recommended were great and very close to the house. The day trip destinations she suggested were great too. We did the rain forest and a catamaran trip on the east side of the island. Visiting Old San Juan was a short scenic car ride, though we also saw the bus stop a block away.

The house is in an urban setting and a short stroll to the beach (6-7 min)… and we bought fresh coconut water from the fruit stand around the corner almost every day.

Thank you Yoa and family, we will be back in January.

Thank you Richard. The words in your review do echo what we aim to stand for. We really do advertise what is offered and if anything a bit more. The pictures posted are ones that truly reflect the spaces in the home, with all of its decor and amenities. Just as well with the descriptive information of the space. We have a high standard of cleaning and are glad to know that you all have recognized and appreciated this.
It was lovely meeting your group. Please visit again :)

“Poor standard when compared with US vacation homes”

To start the host was very good and friendly.
The house was very old with musty cat smell. All the furniture was very uncomfortable and was bought from Flea market and carried very strong odor. The house was not fully furnished and lacked lot of amenities. We had to ask even for a broom to clean the house. The Air conditioning was only in 2 bedrooms and the rest of the house was steaming hot. Please note there were only 3 bedrooms not 4 as adveritzed. If we use the airconditioning, it would trip off the hot water supply and we had to call the host to turn on the electricity. The stairs steps are very tall and not suitable for little children. There is no ocean view - need to walk 1 mile before you will see the sea. Most of the houses in the street are in avery derelect condition.
I will not recommed this property to any one even if it is going cheap..
Thanks.
