A mother of two who teaches Spanish as a second language. I love to travel and explore new places. I like to read, drink wine, and enjoy life. My favorite place, besides my condo, is the beach.

Great, centrally located place. It was modern and very clean, and working with Marilyn and Liliana was easy. The condo is in a new development that was very quiet (perhaps because some units haven't sold?) Minutes to Luquillo and the beach, and also convenient to Fajardo and the ferry. The view is lovely, though the highway is between the condo and the ocean so you hear that on the balcony.
Marilyn's home was located in a beautiful part of the island and it was clean and just as the photos show. Marilyn was very attentive and responsive. We had a slight problem with the access gate to the complex and she worked to take care of that immediately. We really appreciated having such a wonderful space with a gray balcony for our visit to PR.
Marilyn is a great communicator... by email or by text, she is always on hand. Her apartment is exactly as pictured and impeccably clean. The location is perfect for anyone who wants to see more that just San Juan. The local beach is one of the seven "blue flag" swimming spots, the National Forest is minutes away and the ferries to the offshore islands are close by. The little town of Luquillo has some hip spots, all of which are noted in Marilyn's guide book. I can give an unreserved recommendation.
The spacious 2bdrm, 2 ½ bath was perfect for my family. Enough room to spread out and enjoy the beautiful ocean view. The décor was stylish and comfortable. The kitchen was equipped with pots
and pans. Beach accessories were available to use. The condo is in a gated community and is close to the beach, rain forest and snorkeling. The building and grounds are well maintained. It is the perfect spot for a relaxing vacation and interacting with the awesome people of Puerto Rico.
Casa Valeriana is exactly as advertised -- very clean, spacious and well-equipped with everything you need. We especially appreciated being able to use the kitchen for cooking when we didn't feel like eating out, as well as using the washer and dryer for laundry. Marilyn is a good communicator and there to answer any of your questions if needed; we also appreciated the welcome gift that she left us :)
The location is great for exploring the east part of the island. You are close to the Bio Bay, Yunque Rainforest, beaches, and dive spots. You WILL need a car. And as we learned the hard way, book tours well in advance; they are often sold out and subject to weather.
The only drawback is the location near the highway -- you do get highway traffic noise if you have the windows open, but otherwise it's a peaceful and quiet location (not many other folks around).
We had a great stay at Casa Valeriana and in Puerto Rico. We stayed 6 nights and enjoyed the exprience. Thank you for the warm welcome.
Great place, location, and pool. It had everything my family and I needed.
The stay at this condo was amazing. The location was perfect for our trip. El Yunque was near by and also the ferry for our trips to Culebra and Vieques. Quiet and really safe environment. The pictures are exactly how the condo looks. Marilyn was a perfect host. I will definitely be staying here again if possible.
I am glad that you all had a great time! And of course, you are welcome any time!
Went to PR for the first we stayed at this place and feel quite at home. The area was close to most of the things we wanted to do and the place was comfortable. The beach 5 minutes away is beautiful! The food are great! Marilyn was very helpful and answers any questions we have. We ask her for recommendations and she reply very quickly! Over all the place is beautiful, quite and very comfortable.
We stayed here in Mid June and the place was amazingly beautiful and calm. This condo looks exactly as it is appears in the pictures and I rate it 5 stars. You have everything you need in the condo such as basic cooking utensils, bathing towels, beach chairs and beach umbrella, and a big cooler that you could use when you go to the beach. The condo is in a private gated area where most people who live there are locals so if you are looking for a quiet vacation this is the place to go. We went there for our 1st year anniversary so this was a very romantic place because it was quiet and very private and away from tourists. Also, since the complex is new, a lot of apartments are still not occupied and the ones that are occupied are occupied by local workers, so during weekday mornings expect to enjoy an empty pool since most people at work which would be very ideal for couples looking for a romantic pool. This place is also within 5 minutes driving distance to the many beautiful beaches in the area and within 10 minutes driving to the rain forest and all other attractions are nearby. Fajardo and the ferry that take to the beautiful Culebra island is also very nearby withing approximately 15 mins driving. The host Mariyan, was very considerate of our needs and very generous. She made sure that we had a pleasant time there and she answered and helped with every need we had. She also was very generous and sent us a a beautiful gift.
