Why Carmen Medina chose Luquillo

Being Puerto Rico an Island in the Caribbean, we thought having a chalet close to the beach and to the forest was the best option to rest and forget about the daily stress.

What makes this chalet unique

Quietness, private pool, pool table, (2) big balcony. Resting is guaranteed.

Guestbook comments from the manager

A really great place to hang out. Quiet & private, but a short drive to beaches and restaurants. The opposite of hectic & crowded San Juan, but only about 35 minutes away if you want to spend the day there. Perfect for families. Hector was responsive & accommodating. A great choice.

You're paying for what's outside....

  • 3 of 5

...gated community, beautiful views & pool, conveniet local, semi-updated inside, & out.This home could be great with updates, cleaner finishes on their DIY projects, & a guide to navigate it's quirks!

My Husband, our 4 kids (2, 6, 10, 13), & I arrived in the evening. We used the written directions, & not the HomeAway GPS location. The house is fenced in, & has a gate with a chain, at the edge of the driveway.

The front door was hard to open all the way. The home was hot when we arrived, & has no screens in the living area, but it has 4 AC units. The lighting inside is dim. The home has lots of storage, kitchen supplies, beach toys, & love the hammocks!

We headed to the pool night 1. The pool lights were on, but the problem was finding the other lights outside. Countless amounts of light switches all around, a lot of which went to nothing. Labels are an easy fix.

On our 1st night, between 10-11pm, we found out our neighbors had a very loud donkey. His fav times of day to "talk" 10-11pm, 5-7am. 6-8am: roosters, dogs, construction, ATV'S, neighborhood landscapers & firecrackers.

The morning of day 2, we were shocked to see men walking around the property. They were pool guys & we inconvienced our day until they left. When we came back home, our gate was open! Nothing was missing, but it's alarming.

We discovered a window that had slid down it's broken frame, leaving a 2 inch gap. We covered it with a plastic bag & informed the manager about our day 1 troubles, who apolgized. No one came to fix the window, which could easily fall out.

There's no video game system as advertised. No screens in living area. Not enough couch seating, so we used the sofa bed for movie night & it's broken! There's no support at one end. It took force & finesse to close it. Judging by the condition, this was the tactic everyone used.

There's no oven, but the large Grill has one. When we saw it's broken knobs, we left it alone.

The master bed is too springy, my husband's movements woke me up. But the matress is comfortable.

The bathrooms have nice finishes, but the tub has a huge area of repair tape on the wall, & another big hole left uncovered. The bathroom, has gaps between the floor boards. You can see the 1st floor. The shower head is too low, & hot water takes a while. The faucets spit water on you when turned on all the way. Mold & mildew in the tubs & patio furniture, gross! There's litter on the property, & cigarette butts around the stairs. Gross!

Owner's Response: We regret you went through this mayhem. We do have some projects that were begun and will be finished soon. The bathroom being one of them. Everything mentioned will be taken care of. The lighting upstairs uses the recommended watts recommended by the manufactures but the ceiling fans also have lights that can be turned on without turning on the fans while the A/C is on. We will go personally to check the lights downstairs and fix eliminate switches that go nowhere and label or leave instructions on where and what part they belong to. The pool guys go every Thursday to clean it and make sure guests enjoy the clean water. We will include this in information sent to guests, so no one else is surprised if crew comes in very early, as it happened that day. As you told us of this inconvenience to your day, we didn’t want this to happen again, window was left to be fixed after your departure and will be fixed shortly. Sofa bed is going to be replaced in the coming weeks and the grill. We will also be inspecting the outside cleaning more closely. About the animals, there’s nothing we can do about that. This is a country home with all its faults and charms.

AMAZING HOUSE!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

That house was absolutely PERFECT in every single way!! The outdoor patio living area is AMAZING! I honestly cannot say enough good things about this house as well as Carmen and her husband! I ALWAYS travel w my own sheets but the bedding in the house was better than my own sheets, so soft! Carmen emailed me soon into our trip to check on everything and the Internet wasn't working, her husband was out the next morning fixing it and it worked perfectly after! The location of the house is perfect, honestly my husband and I and our 4 kids didn't really leave the house at all for the first 5 days! Lots of late night family swim times made this vacation perfect! We will absolutely plan our next vacation and stay here at this house!! THANK YOU for such a beautiful house!!!

Lovely Tropical Get Away

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our group. We were able to cook our meals comfortably for a group of 6, dine together, and relax. The house and amenities were clean, the decor was lovely, and the location was prime! It is a wonderful gated community in the middle of horse country, perfect for a relaxing get away.

Amazing views, clean and spacious

  • 4 of 5

The views were incredible. The pool, outdoor kitchen and deck area were amazing. The house was very clean and spacious. With a couple of hammocks, outdoor sofas and an air mattress, all 11 of us slept comfortably throughout the week.

Puerto Rico paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 stayed and Hacienda Carabelli and had a wonderful time. The home was just as pictured. We enjoyed the location as it was private yet was to get to the beach at Luquillo and to el Yunque. Markets and places to eat out were easy to find. The home was clean and furnished comfortably inside and out and we were able to prepare and enjoy all our meals in the well appointed outdoor kitchen. Added bonus was that this home is in a "horse" community and my daughter had a great time watching the Pasaafino horses being ridden and trained around us. Hector was very helpful when we had questions and Carmen was very responsive as well.

All in all it was a great family get away and we look forward to our next visit!
