Mari's place was great--very clean and tidy, and located right near the beach. We were able to walk to a few restaurants and bars, and it was also very close to Fajardo for the bio bay and the rainforest. Communication before the trip was very easy and clear. We would definitely stay here again!
Nos gusto la semana en la casa de Mari. Todo era muy comodo. .Aunque la playa esta muy cerca a la casa las hondas eran grandes toda la semana. Por eso usamos una playa perfecta que esta un poco mas lejos (15 minutos a pie a lo largo de la costa).
Podemos decir que no tuvimos ningunas cosas malas. Con mucho gusto usaremos la casa de Mari otra vez.
Mari's flat was perfect for my trip. It was spacious and a 30 second walk to the beach. Mari's mother met me at the airport with keys, which is SO convenient. The space was comfortable and the ocean breezes are amazing. You don't need to use the air conditioning in early March. The place is clean, the beds are comfortable, you can hear the ocean from your bedroom, there are adorable cats in the neighborhood and you're steps away from amazing beaches. Mari is great at communicating as well!
I would 100% stay here again when I return to Luquillo.
The stay at Mari's was incredible. So close to the beach and so beautiful. Mari left us copious beach and bath towels and beach toys. I wish we had stayed longer.
Overall, all positive. Location is very good, very short walk to the beach. Only one actual restaurant within immediate walking distance, but very short drive to the kiosks and to the in-town restaurants. It's an ideal day-trip location for anything on the east side of Puerto Rico. We enjoyed the choir of tropical birds outside every morning. The only downside was that some of the cookware and knives could use replacement, and there are a few little wear and tear aspects that could use some attention. All things considered, this apartment is a great value for a family.
What a great location! We enjoyed the very short walk to the beach, as well as a little longer walk to the kioskos. There was plenty of space for just the two of us, and beach towels and chairs to grab when we went to the beach. We appreciated having a washing machine and dryer available. Thanks for offering a great beach apartment!
My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Mari's apartment. It was well decorated, with 3 bedrooms and a nice big kitchen with a full size refrigerator and stove. There is a stacked washer & dryer which came in handy. The unit was a very short walk to the beach.
One of the great aspects of this rental is that Mari provides what you need for the beach i.e. beach chairs, coolers, umbrellas, beach towels and more!
There is a nice big screen TV in the living room with satellite service and the internet service is on local cable company which is pretty slow.
A short drive away is a grocery store, Walgreens and the Kiosks with shops, bars and restaurants. You need a car if you stay here in order to get around
We would definitely stay at Mari's again.
We loved the place. It was clean, quiet and just a minute walk to the lovely beach. We didn't meet Mari but did get to meet Tere at the airport as soon as we landed. She was very helpful and also gave us a map to reach the place. We loved the stay and would surly revisit whenever we come back to PR.
My wife and I spent several days in late January 2015 at Mari's wonderful apartment in Luquillo, Puerto Rico. It was so easy to hop between beach and home—that's how close the sea this place is! Plus, everything you need for the beach she has ready for you. The bedroom we used was nice and cool at night, and the couch and cable came in handy on our nights in. We spent most of our time eating at the Kioskos, which are also super close, as well as The Brass Cactus, which has lots of great homemade food and is just around the corner. The neighborhood was pretty sleepy, as was the beach, which was perfect for us, and at night we fell asleep to the sounds of the birds in the coconut trees and the song of the coquis. Every morning we got up early and took the short, easy drive to El Yunque to do some rain forest hiking. What a vacation!
Although we didn't actually meet Mari or her mother Tere, they kept in touch via e-mail, texts and phone calls and were easily reachable. Be aware that they normally give you the keys at the airport when you arrive in San Juan but we were driving up from Ponce so Tere arranged to have the cleaning lady stay later until 5pm to give us the keys. The apartment is in a quiet neighborhood and about 1 minute walk to a beach (which is more windy and rough than Luquillo beach). However, Playa Luquillo is just a 2 minute drive away and so are the famous food kiosks. Tere recommended La Parilla and we had an amazing meal of fresh lobster there. The apartment was very clean and cosy and had everything we needed, including beach towels, beach chairs and good wi-fi. Mari did a great job decorating! The two first rooms are quite small but perfectly comfortable with the A/C and high quality cotton linens. The last room is larger and has a comfortable queen bed and cool cross-breezes so there was no need to use the A/C. The living room doesn't have A/C but it was fine with just the windows open and the ceiling fan on. There is a washing machine and dryer which was convenient but only a shower and no tub in the renovated bathroom. (Hot water was limited to about 3 showers in a row before running out but hey, it's so warm, its not a big deal). Overall it was a pleasant and comfortable for our family of 5 with 2 small children. The location is also very handy to El Yunque, The Bioluminescent Lagoon and Luquillo beach. I would recommend staying here if you plan on visiting this area. Aromas Coffee and Crepes in the square is yum for breakfast! Thank you Mari and Tere for your hospitality and for sharing your beach home.
Very nice, clean guest, can't wait to host again
Mari is a very friendly young lady and she left the apartment very clean and organized.
I would host her anytime. Highly recommended.
Thank you Mari.
Mari Rodriguez was fantastic guest and I strongly recommend her to any other AirBnB Hosts. She was very friendly, clean and tidy, she took care of the place like their own...everything was perfect.
Mari ja conhece bem o Rio e trouxe seus pais, foram super bacanas o apto ficou muito limpo. Ela foi muito clara e objetiva sem delongas e facil de lidar e comunicar.
nos encontramos pelos caminhos do Leblon, eles curtiram bem a praia e a feira Hippie + por do sol no Arpoador. Um clássico!
Conicí a los padres de Mari que son encantadores. Son una familia super amigable y respetuosa. Me encantó conocerlos y los recomiendo a quien tenga la suerte de recibirlos. Son bienvenidos cuando quieran regresar.
Excelente hóspede. Uma simpatia e comunicação perfeita. Entregou o apto em perfeitas condições. Será um prazer recebê-la quando desejar retornar ao nosso loft.
Mari is a very sweet person, good guest and calm , I hope she enjoy us next time in Sao Paulo...
Thanks for staying with us. We hope you had a good time in Buenos Aires.
Was a fantastic experience to receive Mari's family! What a nice persons. Very friendly and easygoing! We had a great time around Rio.
They are more than welcome to come any time!
although I didn't meet Mari personaly, I can say that she and her family were the perfect guests and we will be happy of hosting them again.
