My wife and I had a wonderful one week stay at the apartment. We had everything we needed. It is a very quiet place with a wonderful view of the ocean from the balcony. The sunsets are spectacular, just as in the picture. There is no sand beach right at the apartment, but about 30 steps down there is a dock from where one can get into the water easily for snorkeling, swimming, and kayaking. The water was quite clear (depends on the day and the weather) and there are many corals and tropical fish. Nearby sandy beaches are Playa Santa, a 10 min walk, and Jungle beach, which can be reached by car in 15 min. Further to the east (15 min walk) is playa Maglillo, which is public and can be busy. However, one can walk/climb over the rocks (20-30 min, eastward) to reach a sand beach that is very private. There is a diving school in town, just minutes away, but we did not book anything with them. Parguera is only 30 min away by car, which has many boat operators. You can rent a boat yourself or take a guided snorkeling tour, highly recommended. Also within 30-40 min drive is Gilligan Island, also highly recommended ($10 boat ride from the dock), and nearby is Tamarindo beach, very private, but it takes a bit of a hike. There are a couple restaurants in town. The next grocery is on 116 in Guanica, 15m by car. There are a couple restaurants in town, and more in Yauco and Ponce. Playa Santa is quite during the week, but gets busy on the weekends.
The owners, Loise and Lois, own the entire top floor with 3 more apartments. They were present while we stayed there and the are wonderful people. We could use their kayak and even invited us one night for dinner. I'd recommend the place to anyone.
Caribbean Jewel really is the best description for this amazing vacation destination, the owners are gracious, hospitable and fun they even invited us to bio bay to experience some of the local attractions and culture. This was the best vacation place, beautiful, prestine waters with spectacular sunsets. I highly recommend this Jewel of a vacation spot and plan on returning for my next stay in Puerto Rico.
Great location. We love Guanica and we usually spend New Years in this town. This is a new listing with basic amenities with a great ocean view and access to beach. Host was friendly and welcoming and very responsive to our requests.
