The Temple of Gaia at Playa Azul is a magical space that has inspired my creativity for 20 years. Playa Azul is one of Gaia's beautiful ecosystems whose love blesses residents and visitors with health, peace, and well-being.

In the new chapter of my life that's beginning, I will be traveling away from Puerto Rico.

The space is now available to others ready to enter the Temple of Gaia, receive the love of Playa Azul, and be blessed with the caressing waves of the Caribbean.

The space

We offer one bedroom apartment with living room, terrace, and a breathtaking view on the Caribbean ocean.

Cabo Rojo is ideal for lovers of sandy shores, calm oceans, fresh-water pools. Poets, writers, creatives, readers are welcome to the unique collections of books on love and other Gaia related themes, ***be prepared to see many books.

The nearest airport (45min away) arrives in Aguadilla. It is usually served by daily flights from the continental USA.

Details of arriving and leaving hours during weekdays are arranged with our co-host Kristal. Preferred arrival time is 4-6 pm. **Other arrival times can be arranged. Also, punctuality is highly appreciated. Kristal will get in touch once the reservation payment is completed. ***For more details and any specific questions, you can contact her through AirBnb's messaging system.

Guest access

The condominium has controlled access and a parking lot with a private parking space. It also offers a 6-feet swimming pool equipped with shower, public restrooms, garden, gazebo, and a gate for direct access to the beach (guests will be using the condominium's "Garden Key" to open gate to public beach. This is a special key that stays in the condominium area. Replacement for this key can be up to $ 1000. We invite guests to use it cautiously, upon arrival. Our cohost will give more details about safe and accustomed use). The area is very pleasant, well kept, and secure.

**The apartment is fully fitted for a maximum of 3 adult guests**. All areas of the apartment are accessible to guests.

Interaction with guests

She looks forward to meeting new people and to welcoming guests of the Temple of Gaia at Playa Azul. She will offer free advice and tips, and is happy to consider requests for shared trips and visits.
Copies of my books, Gaia and Ecosexuality, are available. Take one and share with your friends and partners. It will resonate with you. My other book collections are available too. Ecology, love, sexuality, women, ecofeminism, cinema. Enjoy the mystery!!

Other things to note

Gaia Temple at Playa Azul is a powerful station to establish a direct connection with the lover we all share, the Earth. The Temple is located in a liminal space between sky, land, and sea. All the four elements are present here. Water, fire, air, and earth dance together in this beautiful and loved ecosystem. Guests will learn to appreciate the sovereignty of nature and will experience living in close connection with it.

-The apartment is on top of a beautiful and well kept public beach, on the point called Punta Arenas, which is located between two bays of the calm and caressing Caribbean sea.

-Public Beach. Playa Azul is one of the cleanest and best kept public beaches in the region. It is frequented by nature-lovers and diverse visitors in all seasons. ****Especially on weekends, where one might expect to hear the hustle and bustle of groups of people enjoying nature. It is important to know that during this particular time it can get quite noisy, long weekends can be especially challenging.**** So if you plan a trip at this time of the week and you wish to be at peace, be sure to plan a trip around the island from 12 to 6 pm.

-Seasons. ***The best season for a vacation is the dry season, which runs from November to April*** The weather is by and large beautiful, with high atmospheric pressure, sunshine, some rain, and temperatures between 70-85 F.

The rainy season includes summer months, and the hurricane season, which runs July to October. These seasons are not as amenable as the dry season. It brings low atmospheric pressure and humidity. Rains and storms can be quite heavy on the pointe. The passage of hurricanes can cause alerts. Sometimes the evacuation of coastal areas is necessary.

The rainy season is also the season when the beach adjacent to the apartment, Playa Azul, is most frequented by local people.

We wish you a wonderful experience of connecting with Gaia at her Temple on Playa Azul.

The location is great. Last floor in front of the beach with an amazing view. Security gate and the host Kristal is amazing. Property is too clutered, overwhelming actually. The AC in the room doesnt work so we had to sleep in the living room since there is no breeze from the coast.

Response from Dr. SerenaGaia:
Thanks for your review, Josue. The apartment is home to a multi-collection personal study and research library. The organizing theme for the collection is Gaia. The place is especially suitable for people who like the company of books. Guests are welcome to reading. The collections are neatly located in shelves at various levels. This can feel a bit "cluttered" for people who are unaccustomed. The bedroom air conditioner will be revised soon. It works well if guests are satisfied w/ cooling to 80 F. It will be repaired to hopefully cool better.

Place is real nice . The beach , OMG , I loved it. Krystal is such a nice person . She helped us out and was always available thru her cel. phone . Great person ! We left just on time to avoid the week end people and their noise. Perfect spot to relax and ear gorgeous beaches in the Cabo Rojo area.The bedroom 's AC needs to be repaired or replace so I slept in the living room and it was just fine. I would definitely come back .

When we arrived at Serena's condo, the first thing that struck me was the view. Straight from the balcony, was a magnificent view of the water. The condo was more than spacious enough for my wife and myself and we were offered the opportunity to utilize Serena's kitchen and her cookware. Overall, a fantastic experience! Just a word to you meat lovers, Serena requested that no meat products be brought in or consumed in her space as she is a vegetarian. Dairy and eggs were ok, however. This was not a burden to us as our hostess is a fascinating, creative, and artistic individual. Our recommendation... If you get the opportunity to stay at Serena's, TAKE IT!

El templo de Gaia es justo eso, un lugar sagrado en dónde puedes descansar y disfrutar como si estuvieras en tu propia casa. El apartamento tiene una vista privilegiada al mar, en el que puedes ver hermosos atardeceres desde su balcón. Apartamento espacioso, zonas comunes con piscina y gazebo, y una playa "privada" super limpia y hermosa. Nos recibió Kristal, y fue muy simpática, nos explicó todo lo relacionado a la vivienda y hasta nos recomendó zonas para visitar. No tuvimos el placer de conocer a la Dra Gaia, pero sin lugar a dudas, volvería sin pensármelo. Lo recomiendo al 120%. Logramos lo que queríamos, desconectar y disfrutar tanto de Cabo Rojo, como del templo de Gaia. Mil gracias!

Très chouette appartement situé en bord de plage, face à la mer des Caraïbes avec une piscine accessible. On a eu un peu de mal à trouver l'endroit mais la communication avec Kristal a été parfaite et elle nous a beaucoup aidée aussi pour donner des conseils pour le séjour. C'est vraiment un endroit pour profiter de la plage et du coucher de soleil. Je le conseillerai pas pour profiter du calme par contre. J'imagine que cela dépend de la période. Si vous recherchez du calme évitez les vacances des locaux en Juillet (nous y avons été en pleine semaine fin-juillet) ;) Ils sont bruyants tant le jour que la nuit.

El templo de Gaia es un excelente y maravilloso lugar para relajarze y pasarla maravillosamente bien tanto en familia como en pareja. Este apartamento queda frente a la playa con una vista espectacular de los atardeceres del area oeste. Desde que llegamos sentimos la paz y armonia que inspira este apartamento nos sentimos como en nuestro proprio hogar. La excelente anfitriona Cristal fue siempre super atenta y sumamente pendiente de nosotros y nuestro bienestar y comodidad. Le recomiendo so cien porciento este maravilloso lugar. Siemplemente Cristal y Serena in millon de gracias por tan maravillosa experiencia nos veremos pronto.
