2 Dorado oceanfront vacation rentals

2 Dorado oceanfront vacation rentals

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 17, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Our home has 2 rental units-both with private entrances. The main

floor

unit has 2 bedrooms & 1 bath. The second floor unit has 1 large

bedroom

& 1 1/2 baths. Each unit is about 1100 square feet & sleeps 5.

All the bedrooms have

queen size beds. Both units have cable tv with HBO, phone for local

&

incoming

calls, use of a full size

washer &

dryer & are fully equipped with

linens

& kitchen supplies. They are decorated in a charming spanish decor &

we

are sure you will be pleased. Both units also have an additional

roll-

a-

way bed in case you need them. We tried to make things comfortable

for

our guests. In both kitchens we have a coffee maker,toaster,micro-

wave, blender,

new stove & refrigerator,dishes,glasses,pans & utensils. The top 2

photos are the picture of our home & the view from the second floor

balcony. The bottom 2 photos are of the (left) main floor living room

& (right) the second floor living room.

We have tried to make our home nice for you. Every trip we do more &

more. We challenge you to find a better vacation rental for the

money.

Our view is awesome & we are right on the ocean not just a view of

the

ocean. We hope someday you may want to visit our little paradise

here.One thing I should talk about is the weather here. It is 85

degrees every day of the year with tradewinds that keep it

comfortable.

It is one of the rare places on this planet that is a 12 month of the

year destination.It pretty much rains just a little everyday. Just

enough to freshen everything. This is why all the plants are so green

& lush.

Last but not least is to mention the sound of the ocean at night. It

is

incredible. It lulls you to sleep.

What a couple of recent guests have told us-

Hector Herrera from Scotch Plains, New Jersey who stay in June 2003

"My family & I loved your house. It was in a convenient location &

had

a beautiful view. My father enjoyed waking up early & going for a

swim

on our secluded beach. Again, thank you for your hospitality"

Jackie Acevedo from Chicago who also stayed in June 2003

"We had a lovely time. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your

beautiful home. We did a lot of sight seeing so we were only at the

house early in the morning or at night"

Bill Knocke from San Dimas,Ca.stayed July 2003

"Thanks,my friends loved the place especially Bambie & Rex.They must

have gained a few pounds.We will be happy to recommend your home.The

drivers there have no rules.Thanks for being so prompt regarding the

security deposit."

Hector Alvarez from Virginia stayed August 2003

"We enjoyed our stay very much-Thank you"

David Parkinson from New Jersey stayed in Jan.2004 with 10 people

"As for your house in Dorado, all I can say is beautiful. Our group

walked into your house & absolutely fell in love with it. The view

from the roof is spectacular & was a popular spot for morning coffee.

We all had a wonderful time & even had a marriage engagement between

my brother-in-law & his girlfriend. Thank you very much & I hope to

be

back soon."

Harry Costas from Las Vegas stayed feb.2004

"It was great meeting you in person. I wanted to tell you we had a

wonderful time in Puerto Rico & enjoyed staying at your fabulous

home.

We hope next time we get to spend more time there. Everything was

great

& will even recommend it to our friends"

The Smiths & the Schmidts from British Columbia, Canada stayed

Feb.2004

"We enjoyed our stay. We will tell our Canadian friends.Best wishes"

Nahil Barakat from Virginia stayed March 2004

"Thank you very much-the house was fine & your managers were really

good & professional"

John & Mary Dill from Kansas stayed March 2004

"Thanks for the welcome home note. We really did enjoy our Puerto

Rico

vacation. The best part was the accomidations. Everything was just as

you described, even the neighborhood. We explored the island during

the

day & always looked forward to coming back to the beautiful home on

the

ocean. We enjoy cooking & everything was in the kitchen to do so. I

am

a basketball fan & had no idea I'd be able to watch the NCAA games.

the

cable is a big plus. Mary would read on the top balcony during game

time & listen to the cocee frogs. We always felt safe in your island

home. We had a great time & thoroughly enjoyed the use of your home.

It

made our vacation perfect. We hope things work out for a return

visit.

Thanks for everything"

Danielle McCarthy from Chicago stayed March 2004

"We had a wonderful time in Dorado. The house was great-exacly what

our

group wanted. Norma & Edgar are fantastic. They were the perfect

welcome committee. Thanks again"

John & June Caldwell-Orange,CT.-Stayed April 2004

"We enjoyed staying in your Dorado home immensely-we were pleasantly

surprised by the ample room in the unit & the comfort of the

mattress.

Traveled with friends and family from Texas to celebrate in PR my brother's 50 th b-day. We rented both units and there was enough space for all of us to enjoy the beautiful home. Great ocean waves to wake up to and go to sleep with. Property was the ideal spot to relax and get away from all the hustle and bustle. Yet close enough to get around the island. Felt safe at all times and the property manager was very accommodating. Always helpful, if needed. I am so happy I found this little piece of paradise and I will be renting again for my next visit! Wish I owned this property! :)

Hear the waves crash!

  • 5 of 5
I am a bit late in writing this review but felt I should write it anyways. My husband and I rented the top unit of Diana's home in March 2014. Diana on our initial conversation wanted to make sure I was aware that this is a beach house and is not perfect. I wasn't looking for perfect. I wanted an inexpensive but beachside place to stay. She also called as soon as we arrived and wanted to make sure everything was ok. Amy who manages the property locally lives right next door and was able to reached for any questions and to check out. The top floor is spacious and had I wanted to throw a dinner party for 10 people I could have. The kitchen is not huge but completely functional and worked for what little time we spent in there. The living room furnishings are dated, but comfortable. The windows, oh the windows!!! That beautiful sunlight streams in and its amazing. The balconies are small, but when all your doing is staring at the ocean do you need anything more?! The bedroom had plenty of linens and a seating area, the bathroom was big and clean. With having the windows and doors open we never needed the air and fell asleep every night listening to waves crash. My husband loved the rooftop oasis, almost every night he enjoyed sitting up there. The view is spectacular. The only drawback is we got stuck in traffic one day just outside Dorado coming back from the Bacardi plant. We sat for more than an hour. If I remember correctly Diana mentions something about the traffic in one of her many brochures, pamphlets, and binders. There was a pretty significant amount of cleaning and laundry to be done prior to checkout, but for the price we were happy to accommodate. I would stay here again, it was close enough to the major highways, but far enough that when the sun goes down all you hear is the waves.

great vacation

My family and I stayed in the beach home for a week from 7/3-7/10/14. Our family had a great vacation. The home was nice, roomy, clean and equipped with everything needed. The view of the beach is beautiful. We are definitely looking forward to next year.

My permanent PR vacation rental

  • 5 of 5
I have rented this Dorado oceanfront property on several occassions the last four years. My family will not stay anywhere else. We feel at home, the scenery is incredible, location is key as it is right outside of town. As for the home, stocked with all basic needs, comfortable enough to stay in the entire day for relaxing down time. The beach is at back of the home and is very private. The sunshine at the rooftop is intoxicating. There is a contact person for any concerns during stay and is responsive at all times. It really is a beach house although it offers much more. I will be renting once again August 2014 and likely one other trip before year-end. I highly recommend this property.

Desert dweller's favorite get away

I was there for the 4th time. I have never written a review for this Property before. I didn't think that I needed to. I was just scanning the site (dreaming of my next trip) and saw these bad reviews for Diana's place. It shocked me as I always thought everyone was happy, so I never wrote a review. The first one was surprising because I always knew water got in windows at the ocean during a bad storm. Water comes in sideways, the winds are so fierce. The 2nd one... I don't know what planet she is from or what she hopes to get from Diana. This is definitely not the place I stayed at so happily through out the years. Everything was fine in February and I had a marvelous stay. Sure, you always have the Puerto Rico problems such as no water, no power, no phone, no Internet but it's only temporary and it goes away. Sure, you see corrosion because of the ocean. If you don't want to see stuff like this, don't stay right on the ocean. Diana and her husband al started construction a few years ago so that they could live in Puerto Rico for 6 months of the year. It was stopped because of permit problems. It's there but does not bother
anyone's enjoyment of the house. I have always had the most enjoyable time and I'm looking forward to my return trip next February. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Diana has always been more than gracious.

Location

Activity and Interests

Puerto Rico has many activities. you will never be bored. we have

beaches

all around us within easy walking distance. There is the surfer

beach

1

block west & there is the "eye of the bull" lagoon which is 2 blocks

east.

The people

of puerto Rico are very warm & friendly. They want tourists there.

In

the over

25 years that we have been going to puerto rico we have never had a

bad experience. No one was

ever even rude to us. Most people speak english. Its all american

currency. you do not need a passport coming from the states. there is

Gambling at the big hotels in san juan & other cities plus dorado.

The highway system is great (lots of traffic) I hear

they call Puerto Rico 'tropical new york'.Plaza las Americas is a

world

class mall with 300 stores including sear's,penny's & macy's & its

only

about a 20 minute drive from our home. A lot of history & charm make

Puerto Rico what it is. A beautiful paradise. Pick up a good map at

Walgreens & take a ride thru the mountains. It is awesome. From

Dorado

to Ponce it takes about 3 hours. Do not go at night. Too many drop

offs

& you can not appreciate the magnificent views. We will go thru the

mountains & come back by the freeway towards Caguas. Go to Rincon to

watch the whales, sunset & surfers. Go to the caves(an experience) Go

see the rainforest. Go to Vieques on a $2 ferry. Go to old San Juan

on a 50 cent ferry. Get a couple of free drinks & a tour at Bacardi.

Go to Isle Verde & Condado (just like being in Miami)I could go on &

on. At our home I have a book of things to do. Or do nothing. Just

watch the gorgeous ocean from our home. Do some bar bq, sit on our

front porch & have a margarita. Going to Puerto Rico is a real

adventure like no where else. There is a joke about driving here-In

the

United States they drive on the right-In St.Thomas they drive on the

left-But in Puerto Rico they drive all over.

    she speaks english & spanish fluently & live close by.
    she

    A footnote...95% of our guests have been very happy staying at our
    home. The 5% who were not are people who thought they were going to a
    $300-$500 a day resort. We are not an expensive hotel or private
    resort. Our home is not spotless (it is clean but the ocean breeze
    brings a lot of dust) Our home is not perfect (hard to be perfect on
    the ocean. Things rust & deteriorate very fast because of the salt)
    We
    just want everyone to be realistic in their expectations of our
    beautiful home. Remember that you get what you pay for. If you demand
    perfection, this is not going to be for you.Our home is for people
    who
    want to experience the real Puerto Rico(not just some fancy resort or
    hotel) People who have a little adventure in their heart & want to do
    something completely different & not spend a lot of money doing so.
    We
    have no roosters next door(block away) but we do have an occasional
    dog barking at
    the moon. hey guys-we are a beach house--not the Ritz-We just had
    another problem guest who shopped around & found that we were the
    most reasonable vacation rental in puerto rico for what we offered-
    Then they complained because of a power outage & sometimes low water
    pressure-maybe you won't have hot water if there is no sun (solar)-
    -You might see a bug-you
    might
    see some dirt-You might see some junky houses-water may come in during a big storm-this is the caribbean
    &
    things like this happens-please, if
    you can't handle a little inconvenience, go to a hotel & pay the
    price-We planned on moving to our home & started some construction
    which
    has been stopped(permit problem)-so you may see our yard looking a
    bit
    messy-this will not interfere with your stay-
    I work from our home. I am pretty easy to
    reach by e-mail or phone. You should get a response back from me
    pretty
    quick regarding the availability of the 2 units.



    Regarding e-mailing us---if you have a block or a filter on your
    incoming e-mail it is impossible for us to e-mail you back-Thats the
    problem with blocks-Just want you to be aware of this situation-
    thanks
