My family was looking to get away a couple days on the east coast area of Puerto Rico. Although we would spend most time outdoors, we wanted a private place accessible to as many outdoor activities as possible ... this nice apartment turned out to be the perfect place. It is very clean, fully furnished and includes all bare essential supplies, A/C, private parking and a beatifully-kept tropical garden.

The hosts are excellent, professional and very attentive. Promptly greeted us with keys on-hand and were quick to help with any questions. They provided invaluable recommendations regarding where to eat, options on what outdoor activities are best and where to go. Make sure you ask them about the bioluminiscent lagoon night tour options!

We spent one day at nearby Icacos as Culebras was sold out. We reached the small deserted island in 15 minutes via water taxi (5 minute walk from apt) on a perfect Caribbean day for snorkling in crystal clear waters and very few people around. At night, we kayaked in the bioluminicent lagoon under a clear sky ... an unforgettable experience!

Excellent local dinning is walking distance and if you need to do grocery shoping, grab a quick bite or feel for a formal dinning experience, all are no more than a 10-minute drive away.

This apartment is perfect for either a couple days or weeks-long stay. The second floor terrace provides an excellent ocean view ... simply sit on the hammock and relax!

We would definitely come back and stay at the same place without a doubt!

Everything you need to enjoy PR. It really was a cozy 1 BR apt with parking (a must in this busy neighborhood). If you forget sun block/shampoo it's available for use. We cooked everyday for breakfast but there are plenty of restaurants by the marina to walk to. Definitely take Gama and Leslaw's recommendations to heart. We unfortunately didn't take any excursions with them but we hear from others that they are great.
If you choose to stay a few days and cook, I recommend getting some inexpensive Tupperware to leave behind as storage options are limited. Everything else is at hand.
As another reviewed said, there weren't any washcloths, but I think those are gross. We used/brought our own soap. Beach and bath towels are provided.
We didn't really need air conditioning but we turned it on before bed just to shut the windows and drown out some noise. Neighbor has a barking puppy out all day/night and music from passing cars can wake you up. Nothing that kept us from enjoying our stay. I would recommend.

“Easy Getaway”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Gama and Leslaw are great, friendly hosts to a multi-room bungalow in Fajardo. The view from the terrace is of the spectacular Caribbean Sea and the apartment serves as a great base for individuals who want to explore the Fajardo region (with its lovely beaches and the spectacular biobay). The bungalow is right opposite a lovely breakfast place (Las Vistas Cafe) and is a hop-skip of a drive away from both the harbor and the Seven Seas beach. Gama and Leslaw also offer a very intimate tour of the biobay - which my friends and I thoroughly enjoyed. The apartment we rented unfortunately did not have a view of the ocean and / or balcony but one can get this view through the accessible terrace.

“Wanted to stay longer!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We spent two nights in the ground floor apartment at the end of our three week vacation to St. Kitts, Nevis and Puerto Rico. Leslaw and Gama, who manage the apartments, are very organized. They email driving directions to the apartment to you, which include pictures, that are perfect, along with other activities that they offer during your stay. We took the kayak tour of the bioluminescent lagoon with Leslaw, as this is something I have always wanted to see. It was wonderful!! It was so nice just having the two kayaks, Leslaw in his and my husband and I in another one, instead of being in a group of twenty or more kayaks bumping in to each other. Leslaw also told us how to access a beautiful beach, instead of going to the more crowded public beach. It was great - we only saw a few people there, and it was nice for snorkeling. There are several restaurants in the area that you can walk to, which we did.

The apartment is spotless, as are the grounds. There is a full size refrigerator, small stove and microwave. There is also a TV and Wi-Fi. The gardens are very pretty and the property is gated. There is a washer and dryer that you can use also. If we had a question or needed anything, all we had to do was text and they were there.

We really enjoyed our stay and would have loved to have been there longer!

Reviewed 5 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I read other reviews before we booked this apt but I must say I was very disappointed in the comfort of the bed and the towel supply. Other than that the restaurant recommendations were excellant and we enjoyed our brief stay. Not a 5 star but they were very helpful and the area was fun to explore.

Management Response

We are sorry to learn through your review that you were disappointed with the comfort of the bed and towel supply. We just bought this new SertaPedic mattress at Costco for this bed and wonder what was uncomfortable about it since most guests are happy with it as you can see from their overwhelming positive reviews. As for the towel supply, most guests are content with the clean set of bath, hand and beach towels we provide, especially for a short 2 night stay such as yours. So we were perplexed that you were demanding more towels and wash cloths which we do not provide, and that you got upset with our reason for not providing them. Wash cloths are personal hygiene products and breeding grounds for all types of skin molds and micro-organisms, especially in our tropical climate. Nonetheless, thank you for being fair in mentioning the great views and restaurants, our helpful recommendations and that you enjoyed your stay in our area. We try our best to offer a clean, comfortable, safe and conveniently located apartment.

Leshaw and Gama were very helpful and seemed eager to do what they could to ensure we had a good stay.
The apartment was extremely clean. The bed was large and comfortable. We stayed in the lower apartment which did not have a good view but it did have a little table in the gated carport where we parked our car and it had a water fountain and a small garden. They had beautiful manicured plants and trees and it is obvious they work hard and are proud of their well-kept place (well-kept yards seemed to be uncommon in our travels of PR). Since the upper apartment was not occupied Leshaw and Gama made sure we knew we were welcome to use the balcony which had beautiful views, a couple of hammocks and a table and chairs where my wife and I took advantage of in the early morning and evening hours.
Both are very particular and it shows with their attention to details.
There is a washer and dryer to use as well as a place to hang your clothes if you do not choose to use the dryer.
They recommended a couple of places to eat which were both outstanding. They also offered different trips in which they were the tour guides. We opted for the Kayak tour of the Bio Bay which we enjoyed very much.
