After a long year of lockdown with the Covid pandemic, our family needed bonding time more than ever. This home was the perfect spot to stay away from crowds, tourists, etc. The pool kept the grandkids busy for hours! While the beach wasn’t perfect sand like most tourists long for, it didn’t disappoint on views! We found local beach paradise not far away that reminded us of some far away exotic islands. Again, no hustle, bustle...just peace and quiet. This area of the island was exactly what we longed for as a family. Peace, quiet and away from the crowds. The beauty of the mountains was also a bonus.l! Irene, the property manager was wonderful! You could contact her at any time to answer questions. The owners, Aida and Greg were also wonderful to deal with. They were humble, offered wonderful suggestions to make our stay special and went far beyond to give our family exactly what we were looking for. If you’re looking for fast paced action, then this is not the place for you. If you want a charming get away, someplace quiet with a knockout view, a chance to rub elbows with locals, then this is as close to paradise as you can get!! Thank you Aida and Greg for letting us enjoy your beautiful home!!!
This place is a calming and nice place to stay. It was what we were expecting. We got to relax with a nice view and pool.
This stay exceeded my expectations. Beautiful beach front property with a private pool. We fell in love with the area as well. Quiet town with very nice people. The property manager and owner are truly amazing beings. They made me and my family feel like we were there own family. They made certain that we were comfortable and safe. If you want to stay in a beautiful home, beautiful area that is quiet and friend friendly this is it!! Most importantly the property manager Irene and owner Aida truly care about you. There isn't a dollar sign you can place in front of that. Enjoy!!
This is a very very cute place for family to enjoy. Lovely backyard with pool that opens to beach. Restaurants are all nearby. One is just 3 homes away walking distance. The manager was within arms reach at all time. Very very recommendable. Excellent location. Grab this one quickly!
My family and I spent 3 nights and 4 days at this gem of a property. The house is clean and modern and having the beach right in your backyard is amazing. This is away from the hustle and bustle of San Juan and it was just what we wanted for a few days. We are excited to plan our trip back someday - thanks for having us!
This home can be described in one word, paradise! Irene met us on arrival to give us the initial tour. She is fantastic. The house is beautiful on the inside, but amazing on the outside. Walking out the back door, you enjoy the nice sized patio with a large table and chairs. A little further and you are in the small fenced yard, which was great for our 3 year old. The pool is next to the yard and was perfect for cooling off. The most amazing feature was the hammocks. Stretching between the palms, the hammocks are steps from the water. Laying in the hammock, while the cool ocean breeze blows past, listening to the waves crash on the beach..... Paradise!
This is a perfect spot for folks that don’t want a high-rise apartment in Condado or Isla Verde. The beachfront location, pounding surf and gorgeous palms make this a perfect spot to come home to. The house is modern, super clean, very breezy and more attractive than the photos. Kitchen had everything we needed. The area has a string of great beaches to explore and during the week they were mostly deserted. Could easily spend a week or more hanging out exploring the coast and the hills above. Would love to return to the area and especially this house.
We rented this house for a family trip and enjoyed it so much! It feels very safe, but also in such a neat location where you still enjoy the culture of the locals. The snorkeling is great in the backyard as the ocean has a bunch of rocky reefs. Also, the sand in places has been cemented by calcium carbonate, and there are lots of river rocks! There is sandy beach also, but the combination was quite interesting. The house is super comfortable, and had everything you could need. It was a wonderful experience!
The property was absolutely excellent. You would be making a mistake if you do not include this property in your list of finalists for a trip to Puerto Rico.
We spent five days in Aida and Greg's house and were very sad to leave. The house is on the south shore of Puerto Rico, away from the hustle and bustle of San Juan, the bars, cruise ships and the throngs of tourists. We loved being in a quiter area. The views of the ocean are beautiful. We were up every morning to see the sunrise right in front of the house. For sunset we walked a little way down the beach. Hammocks are swung between some palms and I could have spent hours reading and resting in them, listening to the ocean. There is a small stretch of sand and then small pebbly rocks on the ocean floor so water shoes are a good idea. We ate our breakfasts and dinners on the porch looking at the amazing view. The small pool was great to cool down in and to rinse off in after an ocean swim. The kitchen was adequately equipped for the simple meals we prepared. Aida was always prompt to answer my questions and sent us lots of information on beaches and restaurants in the area. At check-in we met the manager, Irene, who was very helpful and she brought us star fruit and papaya from her garden for us to enjoy. She responded immediately when we had no hot water the first morning and had it taken care of right away. We explored beaches, the rain forest, went ziplining and explored some local waterfalls. Our favorite beach was at the lighthouse in Maunabo. The colors were stunning, the sand was beautiful and the waves were great. But be careful swimming too far out from shore bc there are riptides. We definitely would return here again if we go back to Puerto Rico. Thank you Aida/Greg and Irene.
Súper hermoso, tranquilo, de verdad que vale la pena la estadía ♡♡♡
I must recognize the superb owners of this enchanting property. From the day I made the reservation, I received various messages from Aida and Greg with all kinds of information regarding the area, attractions, things to do and good area restaurants. They made us feel at home even before arriving. The property is well kept and a joy to stay in. Irene the manager was in constant communication and even brought us a bottle of champagne as an anniversary gift. Very thoughtful. I will needless to say highly recommend this property to my friends and will visit again. Our heartfelt thanks to Aida, Greg and Irene.
This was an amazing place to stay, it had everything we needed and was a little hidden paradise! The Restaurant a few houses down was great as well. There are lots of things to do close enough but honestly with this backyard you don’t need to go anywhere! They were extremely helpful and accommodating and we’ll definitely be renting here again!
Wow...where do I start? My husband and I just returned from our stay at this beautiful property. You can see from the pictures in the listing how gorgeous the views are but they don't do it justice. This property is even more beautiful in person. Irene, the property manager, made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The house was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Away from the more touristy areas of Puerto Rico, the town of Patillas and the surrounding areas are beautiful and welcoming. We did our shopping at the local grocery stores and enjoyed some of the nearby restaurants. We met some wonderfully friendly people. I really can’t say enough about this area of Puerto Rico. As far as the property goes, the house is located directly on the beach and the view is spectacular. My husband and I enjoyed breakfast on the patio every morning, relaxing on the beach in the afternoons, and swimming in the pool in the evenings. What a wonderful way to relax and unwind with the sound of the waves and the beach just footsteps away! We would recommend this property to couples like us but there is plenty of room for more people if needed. We can’t wait to return!
I stayed in three different places while visiting Puerto Rico and Patillas was the best of all. The beach house was spectacular. It’s like a dream life to wake up to the waves crashing and the cool breeze while enjoying it all. Loved it! Irene, our host, was super attentive. She was like having a friend to call and ask questions we had. Thank you for a wonderful trip
Location, location, location. Pictures do not do the beauty justice. The pool was great to cool off in. Irene was wonderful to work with. Very prompt with any questions/needs we had. The property was well stocked with the essentials. It was our first trip to the island and we had a wonderful time!
They were very informative from he beginning. Irene took her time explaining and sharing with us all the amenities of the home. If you want an awesome view to wake up to every morning then this is your place! Hidden gem.
We rented the home for our grandfathers funeral...the beach and pool was a bonus...but when we arrived we had a place of zen to unwind and relax and spend some time with the family that was truly the bonus. The home is beautiful, and well kept our favorite spot was the hammocks in back. The views were amazing!!! You can see the surrounding mountains and the beautiful ocean. Irene made the check in check out process very easy and the owners communicated with us as needed. We will be back!!! 😊� ps eat at Musafe the food is amazing!!
Great location beautiful house irene was amazing as a host definitely recommend.
The backyard is the best since it was my own private beach. The house is very comfortable with a lot of sitting places, the kitchen was very clean but we didn't cook any since restaurant is walking distance from the house or a short drive. Actually we walked from our backyard to the restaurant, that was great. Beds were very comfortable. Back porch was excellent for sitting, barbecuing and listening to the ocean waves, very peaceful. Also it was great having the lawn chairs in the fenced grassy area so you can sunbath in privacy. The house was very clean, plenty of towels, supplies and W/D. Overall the house is beautiful but the backyard was my families' favorite with the hammocks listening to the waves and feeling the cool ocean breezes. It was really relaxing and the views were amazing since you can see mountains against the beautiful ocean. I recommend this beautiful peaceful place and we are coming back next year : )
We had such a delightful and relaxing stay here. The home is perfect, the location is beautiful, and the local neighborhood is genuinely warm and welcoming. The house was spotless, well furnished (inside and outside), and obviously well cared for. Irene and Aida and Greg are charming hosts and made sure everything was right. If you are looking for a glitzy and crowded tourist area, this is not the place. This is our 3rd stay in the Patillas coastal area and we are drawn back time after time to this community and the folks that call this neighborhood their home. The restaurant that is a 1 minute walk from the front door serves delicious locally popular food and the owner of the restaurant (lives next door to the restaurant) is a very nice gentleman and we had an enjoyable visit with him along the waterfront. Our family loves the southeast coast of the island and this has been the best place yet that we have found. The hammocks tied to the palm trees at the waters edge were incredibly comfortable and the breeze off the water is like heaven. We plan on returning soon and hope that this little place is available again. I always tell my friends that if you need to get away, head to Puerto Rico and find your way to this area. Now I can give them an address to stay and the names of Greg and Aida, great hosts.
This was our third time staying at Casa Brisas, and it was once again a very enjoyable and relaxing experience. We just love the location on the island away from the touristy areas, and lots of great local ocean-side restaurants. And nothing like having the ocean in your backyard where we spent a lot of time walking along the beach pickup up sea glass. Now that we've been there 3 times if feels like our home away from home, so this will always be our choice to stay in Puerto Rico. Aida and Greg are fantastic hosts, and very responsive with communications and helpful with any questions or concerns. And Irene was very friendly in greeting us at the house, and making sure our stay was comfortable. Thanks again, Aida and Greg! :D
A great stay with our family at this wonderful house. Perfect size for our family of 5 (2 adults/3 kids 7-13yrs old) . The house was clean and functional, and the views are amazing. A small pool, yard, and beach with hammocks right on the the ocean. This house is perfect If you are looking for a stay outside the big resorts and a little off the main path, in a super friendly community. The owners and property manager are accessible, responsive, helpful and truly care about your visit. I have been to Patillas several times working with local church and loved it so much that I returned with family for small winter vacation adventure. We spent a couple days hanging out in the house and local community. A couple days we drove the hour or so up the coast, once for a boat ride to the beautiful Culebre Island for snorkling and beach fun, and once for an awesome hike in the El Yunque Rainforest.
We loved the location and the yard and deck. It suited our group of three couples to have the house as a base for day trips, and the house and yard and beach gave us enough space to not be on top of each other all of the time. We enjoyed the small seaside restaurants in the area. Property manager Irene was very helpful. We would definitely consider coming back!
La casa es bien comoda para toda la familia. Es la primera vez que visito Puerto Rico, y estoy super impresionado con esta hermosa area del pais. La Casa es muy acogedora y los dueños y los encargados son muy serviciales y amables; lo recomiendo 100%. El area en la costa sur es bien Hermosa y ofrece muchos restaurantes para los amantes de los mariscos. Mi esposa y el grupo que visito tuvimos una experiencia inolvidable y todos quedamos encantado con la casa, la playas preciosas y el servicio de los duenos Aida y Greg. Definitivo volveremos desde Mexico. Todo lo que necesitas para una buenas vacaciones lo tiene la casa solo necesitamos traer la compra y la ropa; ya todo lo necesario lo tiene la casa incluyendo Aire acondicionado en todos los cuartos. La casa esta bien cuidada y super limpia. Definitivamente la recomendamos y volveremos el proximo ano. Gracias Aida por tu hospitalidad.
Les recomiendo 100% si quieres despejar tu mente con familia y amistades, hermosa vista al Mar Caribe, casa toda equipada y limpia
My husband and I stayed in this beautiful home located right on the beach, with waves, sand, and gentle breezes as your backyard. The listing description is very accurate and the property was well maintained and very clean. The property manager, Irene, was very friendly and professional, I liked her alot. Aida and Gregory, the property owners, were genuinely interested in our happiness. This was our first visit to PR and they provided us with many recommendations for restaurants, beaches, and attractions available on the Southern side of PR. Even when our airlines cost us our first night in PR with lengthy delays, causing us to miss our connecting flight to PR, my husband and I spent over 10 hrs Christmas Day in an Airport instead of our plan to be in Patillas on Christmas Day. Without asking, Aida and Gregory refunded the first night of our rental back to us. This gesture of hospitality really touched us! They personally contacted us to make sure we were well taken care of. And the rest of our stay was fabulous with the beautiful views and stunning sunrises! It rained fairly constant for a couple of days, but that just added to the serenity and beauty of it all. We highly recommend this beachfront property and we will definitely return!
My husband and I just spent a glorious week in Patillas, this property is beautiful and semi secluded offering the best views of the Caribbean Sea and peace and relaxation. I marveled at the gorgeous sunrise! Having the sand and Caribbean Ocean as our backyard was awesome! The owners of the property, Aida and Gregory, were gracious and genuinely interested in our comfort and pleasure. We were very moved when they graciously returned our first night rental fee because we were stuck in an airport miles away- DUE TO THE AIRLINES MISHAP - We made up for our lost night through the beauty and serenity of the property and the good food and warmth of the people in Patillas. We will definitely return to this property when we visited again! Also, their property manager, Irene was very welcoming and professional. Thank you all for making our first visit to Puerto Rico a spectacular trip to remember...
Our second stay and we will certainly return. The home is perfectly situated right on the beach and the owner is easy to reach and talk to. A perfect location for sun and relaxation, ideal for families or friends. This home is well worth the price and the trip! Awesome value, definitely recommend!!!
We had a wonderful time at the beach house it exceeded our expectations. The location was prime right on the beach with a pool. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Puerto Rico.
This is the second time that we stayed in this beautiful town, the people are so friendly and our group of 8 people had a great time. Greg and Aida are very accommodating to our needs. We went to help with the reconstruction of the local church in Patillas. We love the area and the people from this great town. The house was very clean and the location on the beach is a blessing in the sky. The back yard is where we spent most of our time. The views are amazing and the pool is perfect to hang out and relax in after a hard day working in the church. Aida/Greg thanks for all your help and making this trip happen for our church. We really appreciate the great accommodation that you offer. The kitchen is appropriately equipped to easily prepare food. There is a restaurant 1 min walk that is great as well since offer real puertorrican food which the group really enjoyed. There are several grocery stores are not terribly far away and there is even a Walmart close in the next town. We really recommend anyone to visit this beautiful house and town. You will be very happy with the accommodation and the hosts. We recommend this house for family or two couples with children. We enjoyed our stay very much and will be back!
Aida and Greg thank you so much for renting your home to us and made our experience so fulfilling. We were concerned coming down to Puerto Rico after hurricane hearing about damages, slow pace of recovery, lack of electricity but to our surprise everything seemed to be up and running. We had no issues at all. Home was newly remodeled with freshly paint and decorations; it was so quaint with a bright beach theme. Owners did a fantastic job. We understand that due to hurricane all new air conditioners where installed as well as many other upgrades. The most stunning feature was the backyard yard. Being right on the beach; the views were spectacular. It was just like a postcard. The sound of the ocean and breezes were incredible. Just sitting on the beach or lying in the hammock was the most relaxing time that I’ve ever experienced. It is certainly a place to get away and spend time alone and with you love ones. So thanks. adelis
What can I say? My own private beach, attentive owners and property manager all making sure that my experience was A1! Highly recommend this beautiful home. Lots of restaurants close by.
One of the best places we have stayed. Very comfortable and had everything we needed. Aida was very accommodating and flexible. It's bigger than it appears in the pictures, clean and surrounded by beautiful ocean views that we enjoyed very much. The pool was great and the water was always warm and the location of the house is residential and quiet. The beds were comfortable as well as the bedding. Felt like home from start to finish. We will definitely be back!
Nice little quite piece of beach, great clean house and pool. I will go back Thanks Larry Dillon N.J
My husband and I have stayed in Patillas three times prior to this trip. We love the area, even more so in the spring time. (Our previous trips have been during the summer.) The property is great for a family or two couples with children. We had four adults and it was perfect for us. The two bathrooms made things very easy for everyone. The kitchen is appropriately equipped to easily prepare food. The house was clean and easy to find especially with the picture Hector sent before our arrival. Grocery stores are not terribly far away and there is even a Walmart pretty close. The back yard is where we spent most of our time. The view is amazing and the little pool is perfect to hang out and relax in. We enjoyed our stay very much and will be back!
This was our second time coming back to Ocean Breezes, and once again we just loved it. We came here for the first time last year and told Aida we would be back. This year we started our vacation with a Disney trip for my son, and we decided to add a few days to our itinerary so that we could finish our vacation winding down at Ocean Breezes. Waking up every morning to the view and sound of the ocean just never gets old! There's not much more I can add to all the positive reviews of this home. It is fully equipped with everything you can think of, and is conveniently located to grocery stores and many casual ocean-side restaurants. It's in an area of mostly locals who are very friendly and welcoming. In fact one morning we noticed two men climbing the palm trees next door and gathering coconuts. When we went closer to watch them they offered us a coconut and even took the time to carve it and open it up so that we could sample the juice. What an added experience! Like I said before... we'll be back! :)
My family had a fantastic time in this well-kept authentic home. This small quaint secret paradise has all the amenities that you need for a great vacation. We absolutely loved this home!! The home was very cute and clean but above all that the views are spectaculars from the porch. The pool was great for my two children and we were able to watch them from the porch seating. The home has a great layout and decoration has a nice beach theme, plenty sitting areas especially in the living room where you did not have to go outdoors since you can see the ocean views through the big window. Nevertheless, the outside was terrific like having your own private beach. We really enjoyed relaxing in the hammocks, walking on the beach collecting beautiful sea glass, coral and shells and eating out in the restaurant next door. The kitchen was well stocked. Aida and Greg were very friendly and easy so work with and Hector was so accommodating. We highly recommend this home! It offers great service for a great price!! We are coming back next year.
This was an overall great experience. From booking, to communication with owners to the walk thru from the manager Dominic and an amazing stay. The home was newely renovated which gave it a modern beach home feel. There was plenty of space for our family of 2 adults and 5 kids. We were right on the beach with palm trees and hamacks. The perfect ocean view. The beach was clean and plenty long enough to walk on with most days empty except for our family. Even though the water wasn't perfect for swimming in (which we knew prior to booking) it was good for a quick rinse. The pool was clean and clear and gave us the cooling off we needed on the warm days. There was plenty of swimming beaches nearby which allowed us to explore the local community. The owners were so helpful in describing the area and the amenities. You can tell they are just wonderful people which we would like to meet someday. The home caretaker was Domingo who was knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. Thanks for the great home and wonderful stay. We will definately be back!
Excellent location, beautifully maintained. Owner was readily available to contact and very responsive. Héctor, the groundskeeper, was also very knowledgeable and accommodating. We are very well travelled and have also been to PR many times, we highly recommend this home and location. We look forward to another stay here. My thanks to the owners for sharing this great home!
We had a great time and truly enjoyed the place. It is a very nice property. It was rather rainy and windy the first several while we were there, but the remaining days were lovely. The only suggestion I have for improving the experience is to have a more comfortable couch or indoor sitting area. Of course, this isn't necessary unless it rains, which I bet it rarely does.
All you would need in a holiday rental: from cocktail glasses to beach towels. Lovely homely house. Already fully reviewed on Trip Advisor
The view is truly as amazing as they advertise. First off, Hector was fantastic and was there waiting for us to check in. He showed us everything we would need for our stay and was readily available via text if we needed anything at all. The kitchen in the unit had everything we needed and each room was equipped with air conditioning and/or ceiling fans; we turned them off because the ocean breezes kept the temperatures perfect. We literally fell asleep in the hammocks under the amazing stars one night - simply unbelievable. There is a great restaurant 2 doors down (Lordemar) -- a must during your stay. We definitely enjoyed all the recommendations and the pulpo (octopus) everywhere on the island was fantastic. Found tons of beautiful sea glass and shells along the beach; we put them back for the next travelers to find, of course! Beware of the rip currents just off the beach - not great to go far in because of it, but we were happy as can be enjoying from the shoreline and there were plenty of beaches nearby, and a small but nice pool at this location to take a dip in. All in all, I felt more like a local because there weren't a ton of tourists nearby but the people could not be friendlier to everyone. I highly recommend PR and would definitely stay here again when we come back!
The house is right on a very quiet beach, that you can consider private since there is not a lot tourists and only few local. You really can feel the puertorrican way of living in this small town. The locales are extremely friendly and the local store is very close by ‘I love the pictures that Aida provided in the document’ was very easy to find it. We really enjoyed our stay and thanks to Aida and Greg, they are extremely friendly to work with. Also Hector the property manager was great. We really enjoyed the back porch with such great sunrises. Having a private pool next to the house was great for the kids and for us since we was able to enjoy the porch setting and watch the kids close by without any worries. It was terrific. The house has a great layout where the master bedroom is across from the kid’s room. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful place and letting us acquire such wonderful memories with my family, we’re really coming back next year.
Perfect spot right on the beach with a private pool. Small town of Patillas is friendly and welcoming with great food. Spacious home with lots of sitting areas and beds.
This lovely house is right on a quiet beach (there is a rocky bottom so water shoes would be a good idea) with glorious sunrises. As seven adults on a mission trip to Patillas, we started each day with breakfast on the beach listening to the waves break. When the work day was over, a dip in the pool or the ocean was a treat. The house is welcoming, nicely decorated and comfortable. We visited the Lordemar restaurant a couple houses away on the beach and enjoyed a delicious meal in a beautiful setting. We appreciated having a full kitchen and washer and dryer and put them to good use. Aida, Greg, and Hector were wonderful both before and during our stay. We met wonderful people in this community that touched our lives in profound ways. We hope to return. While we didn't do much sightseeing, it is a beautiful part of the island with lots to see. Maybe next time.
This is a great house in a great location. The best part is absolutely the view!! It's convenient to grocery stores and other businesses yet secluded at the same time. Aida provided great directions for how to get here and for how to get to other places as well. The restaurant that is a few doors down is very yummy and a few steps away which is great-yet we never heard any noise from it at all. We had a great time and would definitely come again. The beach is a rocky/sandy beach so bring surf shoes. We found lots of shells and beautiful sea glass (no sharp glass though so don't worry about that!!) We loved the pool too!!
True island living with ocean breezes while relaxing on a hammock overlooking the coast lined with palm trees. The location of the home is easy to find and the area is quiet and peaceful. The home is clean and comfortable with 3 air conditioned rooms and 2 bathrooms. The main living quarters provides plenty of room to unwind and enjoy family dining. Hector, the property manager, is available for any concerns or questions and provides helpful information about the area. We enjoyed the backyard the most. The beach is at your toes within a few steps. The shore is covered with beautiful stones and sea glass that my daughter loved collecting. The pool is clean and provides a great place to cool off from the tropical sun. The internet was inconsistent during the day but seemed to work better in the evenings. The nearby restaurants serve delicious meals with friendly smiles. We were able to drive to many sight seeing areas within an hour drive of the home. We contribute a large percentage of our wonderful family vacation to the comfort of the home. We definitely plan to return to Puerto Rico and without a doubt return to this property. Thank you Hector, Aida, and Greg for providing such a great place to stay. The Ortiz family.
I had great time with my family in this house and I plan in to go back next year👍🏼
Wow, is a good word to describe the fantastic ocean views from the living room and balcony!!! The entire trip for me and my family was amplified by how great the accommodations were on this tranquil beach with fantastic ocean views. The staff and Aida were extremely friendly, welcoming and available to answer any questions we had. All of the information about the area and local knowledge was well documented and gave us information of nearest restaurants and stores so we were able to truly see the best aspects of this wonderful coast. My family really enjoyed the house and my 2 kids loved walking the beach collecting rocks and corals; in addition to the pool. The house comes with all the amenities you would expect but with the privacy to lounge in the shade of a palm tree on a virtually semi-private beach with gorgeous sunrises; perfect recipe for a relaxing getaway without ever having to leave the house. It is completely furnished indoors and outdoors with everything you need to prepare a meal for the family, refresh and relax. Definitely I agree with other guests it is like having a private beach as your back door with your own patio and pool. The ability to walk on the beach two doors down to restaurant for a real authentic Puertorrican’s dinner is ‘outstanding’. Thank you for sharing your home with us, we had a ‘TERRIFIC’ time. We couldn't get enough of just sitting outside watching the waves roll in. RF
This home is amazing from the moment that you walk in with some of the most amazing and breathtaking views that you can imagine. I could literally spend all day on the hammock and just watch the ocean waves! The pool was definitely a nice touch kids couldn't get enough. We will definitely go back and stay here. Loved it!!! --- Miriam
This was our first trip to Puerto Rico and we were thrilled with the house and the overall experience! My husband and I have two children ages 8 and 6 so the pool was PERFECT, great size, clean and so convenient! The house was clean and a great size for 4 of us - everyone had enough space to play, read, and spend time together. The beach is beautiful, with amazing views of the sunrise each morning! Having a full kitchen was great for fixing our own meals, we grilled out several nights and ate on the porch looking at the ocean - beautiful! There is a grocery store just about 15 minutes away in Arroyo and we found a very nice beach over there too that we enjoyed as it had waves on one side for the kids and also a very calm cove they snorkeled in. We did struggle to find places to eat out that had food our kids would eat, most of the places to eat out had local food selections which were good, just not things our kids are used to - so eating in was easier for us. The house manager, Hector, is very friendly and responsive to all our questions and requests. He checked in on us but also respected our privacy and was a pleasure to work with. House owners, Aida and Greg, were wonderful to work with! Always responding to questions and providing all the details we needed to make this a memorable vacation for our family! We are grateful for the experience and had a wonderful visit to Puerto Rico!
Wow, the ocean views! The pictures just don't do justice. Ocean Breezes is the perfect name, and the house was the perfect place for our family. The kids really loved having the pool and the hammocks, and they spent a lot of time walking the beach in both directions collecting rocks, coral, and sea-glass. My wife and I couldn't get enough of just sitting outside watching the waves roll in. Aida and Greg are very accommodating hosts in communicating with us prior to our trip to confirm our arrival plans, and in providing tips and directions to all the nearest restaurants and stores. They were very quick to respond to any questions we had. They made us feel comfortable even before we arrived. Once we arrived we were greeted by Hector who very pleasantly walked us through the house and showed us where everything was. The house was very clean and comfortable, and equipped with everything you would need to feel at home. Plenty of blankets, towels, bedding, and kitchen supplies. They also provided many outside accessories such as hammocks, lounge chairs, beach chairs, beach and pool toys, and more! An added bonus is the authentic Puerto Rican restaurant that is just a very short walk along the beach to get to. How cool is that? The food is great, and make sure you try the mojitos! The home is in a residential area that truly gives you the experience of Puerto Rican culture. The locals were very friendly and we felt very safe and comfortable. We can't wait to go back, and we would definitely stay at Ocean Breezes again!
We had a wonderful time on our family vacation at this property. The beach is beautiful and it's so lovely to have a postcard view right our your back door. To top that off, the house is very clean, the owners couldn't have been more accommodating and the town of Patillas is very friendly! The house comes with everything you need to enjoy yourself, from hammocks under the palm trees, to pool toys, to air conditioned bedrooms, to a washer and dryer so your towels stay clean and dry...Basically all the little conveniences you take for granted when traveling are already taken care of. Simply put, we loved this property and wouldn't hesitate to vacation here again.
My family of 6 (2 adults and 4 kids) had a fantastic time in PR at this home. Beautiful home. Clean. Wonderfully located STEPS from the ocean. Very peaceful and calm. Nice to listen to the waves outside at night (and during the day). Kids liked the AC's in the bedrooms. The highway was just outside the front of the house and although not busy, sometimes had very loud traffic. Remote location was wonderful, but had it's drawbacks when wanting to visit other parts of the island - usually at least an hour drive or more. Pool was excellent touch. Not safe to swim in front of house in ocean, but beaches nearby for this. Grill and kitchen made it so we could do most things we wanted for cooking in. Restaurants in the vicinity that were good. Wi-fii to keep everyone connected. We had no personal concerns for safety. Hector was helpful prior to and after arrival and Aida/Norman sent information and recommendations prior to arrival. Other than it's remoteness to certain parts of Puerto Rico (which was one of the things we liked), I can't think of any negatives about the property or our stay. Thanks for renting to us!
Our family of four (including two young children) had a wonderful vacation staying in this beachfront home. The house had everything we could have wanted: a clean, comfortable place to relax and play, grill & kitchen for preparing our meals, pool for kids who don't love to swim in the ocean, and that million-dollar view of the ocean. We thought the location was perfect. It felt like we got away from the real tourist traps of the island and experienced a taste of what real life in Puerto Rico is. However, we were also only an hour's drive from some of those touristy things to do - the best of both worlds. I was very happy to have air-conditioned bedrooms at night. This wasn't something I had even considered, but I think we would have been uncomfortable without it. During the day, we found the ocean breeze to be more than adequate to cool the house. We also loved eating all of our meals on the patio while watching the waves. Having beach chairs and chaise lounges were also very nice. My only (rather slight) criticism is that the bed in the master bedroom had a mattress pad on it that made both my husband and I sweat at night. We'd be cold on top, but hot on the bottom. However, this was not enough to really complain about! I also would have appreciated some tips from the owners/previous vacationers on things to do in the area. Perhaps a notebook or binder for guests would be helpful. (There was a brand-new guestbook with one entry previous to ours). Thank you, Aida, Greg, and Hector for helping us have a memorable and amazing vacation.
This was a beautiful property as advertised. The place was very roomy for 5 people. It was clean and bug-free. The laundry facilities and the WI-FI were an extra bonus. The owners were always available by phone for questions and Hector, the manager on location, was always available in person to help with questions or any issues that came up. Both provided great tips and information for the area. There was a great deck on the back of the house which is where we spent most of our time. The pool was always clean except for a few leaves blown in from the trees. The backyard was a nice sandy beach all the way down to the water. Sand chairs and hammocks were used by all. Did not have a problem with biting bugs in the yard (the ocean breezes helped with that). The water was not always ideal for swimming this time of year as the waves could be high and the riptides dangerous. There were a few beaches within 2-5 miles where we could swim or snorkel. The area was nice in that it was more of a local neighborhood and we could enjoy the quiet local way of life. There was a restaurant two doors down from us (opened Thursday-Sunday only) which could provide sit-down meals or food to go from the front window. There were also a few other small local places to eat/drink within ~3 miles. We went to Patillas to purchase groceries (~7 miles) and used the grill at the house to prepare several meals. The cost of items in the area were very reasonable. I think the smaller places seemed to appreciate the use of cash when purchasing food/drinks if possible. There was a place ~0.5miles down the road where we could purchase fresh chilled, young coconuts. The guys would cut them open and give you a straw to drink the coconut milk and then cut them open for you to eat the fruit. There are also several local fruits/vegetables that were in season that we tried. If you fly into San Juan it is a long drive over the mountains (1.5hrs) to get to the house. A rental car is required to get around to places to see or shop. If we come to Puerto Rico again this would definitely be a place to stay if it was available.
Our kids loved having the private pool and beach just outside the door. It was so relaxing sitting on lawn chairs on the beach watching the kids. The home is very well equipped and Hector was so nice and helpful. Thank you, Hector! It had everything we needed and was very well maintain and clean. Aida and Greg were so helpful with suggests and directions.
This three bedroom, two bathroom home is located right on the ocean in an area with spectacular surf yet near beaches with calm water suitable for swimming. Home is on southeastern part of the island and far away from exclusively tourist areas which was great because it allowed us to really absorb a bit of the island's culture, people, and cuisine. House is big enough to easily accommodate six adults. House is very well-maintained and equipped with all basics. Owner and home's manager went out of their way to make sure our stay went well.
As advertised this home provided the perfect vacation for my wife and I. It was clean, well maintained, and had everything we could possibly need. My favorite was sitting in the backyard under the palm trees and watching the sun rise every morning. The owners were extremely helpful both before and during our stay and I would unequivocably recommend this property for your next vacation!
We felt like we were in the real Puerto Rico in this quaint little ocean side community. Listening to the sound of the ocean and enjoying our breakfast on the back porch taking in the beautiful ocean sunrise. This is what I call a vacation Paradise! Our kids loved having the private pool and beach just outside the back door. It was so relaxing sitting on lawn chairs on the beach watching the kids. Hammocks were also great. The house was very well equipped and well maintained and clean. We were even able to get fresh fish from the local fishing; it was fantastic. In short words, we had such a good time. It was also great to have an authentic Caribbean restaurant that was just a one minute walk from the house. Thank you so much for your helpful suggesting and directions, everything was great. I can certainly tell why Aida/Greg calls it Ocean Breezes “Perfect title for this chalet home paradise”; the ocean breezes along with the beautiful ocean view were so calming. Talk about island bliss!
We had such a great time at this beach front home, especially being able to step out the backdoor and be right on the beach. The house was beautiful, clean, well equipped and such great assistance from Aida and Hector. Being able to walk just three doors down to very nice outdoor restaurant was fantastic. Being in the backyard was a world away. My wife and I could sit on the porch all morning while drinking our coffee and look at the beautiful view of the ocean, breezes and morning sun were so relaxing. Private pool is very nice with beautiful view of ocean; felt very secure for children with fence and gate. It was so nice barbecuing while the kids played in pool. If you’re looking to looking for a place to relax and unwind this is the place. We wish that we could have stayed longer and would love to return. Kids had such a great time. Aida thanks for all your help and providing our family with a dream vacation!
If I had to recap my stay here into 3 words, it would read: Definitely Coming Back! The entire trip for me and my family was enhanced by how great the accommodations were on this relaxing tranquil beach with fantastic ocean breezes. To begin with, the accommodations come with all the amenities you would expect but with the privacy to lounge in the shade of a palm tree on virtually a private beach with wonderful ocean views. The house is a comfortable and complete setting for a relaxing getaway without ever having to leave the house. The house décor was a very tasteful beach theme giving a comfortable surroundings. Furnished indoors and outdoors with everything you need to cook, relax, and refresh. It’s an incredible space, with both the opportunity for privacy and places to gather, eat, drink, enjoy or play. The house being newly renovated and decorated comes with all the modern conveniences for preparing a meal for family. Having the beach right at your back door with your own private yard, patio and pool and the ability to walk next door to the restaurant is priceless. The kids had a great time in private pool and watching to see if a turtle would lay eggs in the backyard again (that was a one of a kind experience). It is a great relaxing house; the private pool and semi-private beach with gorgeous sunrises was top notch. The staff and Aida were extremely friendly, welcoming and available to answer any questions we had. All of the information about the area and local knowledge was well documented and gave us information we needed to truly see the best aspects of the area. We had a fantastic time in our own beach home paradise and we hope to return to experience the adventure and relaxation we found at this house. In short: I’ll be back again and I’M STAYING HERE…
