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.

We had a lovely stay at Marilyn's place. The condo was absolutely spotless, in a very secure and quiet neighborhood with everything we could need for our stay. Marilyn was so wonderful to work with before our trip and was very attentive to any questions we had while we were there. I would highly recommend. Watching the sunrise was a real treat. The grounds were meticulously maintained and the pool was fantastic. The information she gave us ahead of time helped us plan wonderful adventures during our stay. Thank you again!
The listing info was very accurate and the condo was large and lovely. The welcome packet we received upon reserving was very informative and pointed out some great local dining spots. While there isn't any cable TV nor broadcast TV, there is a large collection of DVDs to peruse. The TV is only available in the master bedroom. It would be a great addition to have a TV in the living room. Note that the WiFi signal is very weak in the master bedroom, but great closer to the router. The condo complex is within a gated community and feels quite safe. There is some highway noise as the condo is on a hill overlooking a major road and the ocean. When we went in March, the complex seemed a bit desolate during the week, but that's probably because it's not high season anymore.
Marilyn is very quick to respond to any questions you might have. Note that she had the cleaning lady do the handoff of the keys and give us a tour of the condo, so you may not actually meet Marilyn.
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!
