    Great place to stay! The condo is in a cozy town and was very convenient considering the day trips we took. The views from the condo were spectacular and steps away from Mar Chiquita Beach. The condo was well equipped with everything we needed and more. We felt safe arriving late in the evening from our trips and the people in the town were friendly. We spent our last day swimming in Vega Baja Beach which was only 10-15 minutes away. Mar Chiquita was beautiful for photo taking and for reflecting but not recommended for swimming. The host was very friendly and quick to respond. They made accommodations to greet us at the condo for checking in and answered any questions we had and left a handy list of great restaurants and other places in town. We highly recommend Costa Azul for a variety of delicious food and was only 5 minutes away. The grocery store and a convenient cafeteria were about 2 minutes away as well. We will be back for sure.

    We came together in this beautiful part of Puerto Rico. The beach was absolutely amazing. There were 2 other people on this beach besides the four of us. Very private, yet close to all necessities. The owner, Bob, was available at anytime we needed his assistance. The condo was wonderful. There is an adjacent beach beside your private beach with food and beverage trucks. SWEET! Enjoy??

The patio and grill area was great. My family cooked out a couple nights. Was surprised how well everything looked around the beaches and towns considering the hurricane. People were appreciative of our business and are working hard in hopes tourism starts to picks up again. Bob was great host. Very attentive. Visit Pan Pan Pizza and Coastal Azul.

    My family and I enjoyed our stay very much! The condo was very nice and clean. The internet worked on and off throughout our stay and we were able to watch TV at night and in the morning. The view was amazing! The sound of the waves was so peaceful to hear all day. There was AC available but we had our windows open every day. The beach out front was mostly cleaned up after the hurricane. The only reason we didn?t give it 5 stars is because of the rocky and dangerous beach out front. It was very beautiful but my kids couldn?t swim there. We did go swimming at a beach that was a 8 minute walk from there though. And we drove to another beach in vega Baja that we were able to swim in. My husband was able to surf at Los Tubos beach that was a 5 minute drive. We all went snorkeling in the cove a couple days and played in the tidal pools. I went for a couple of runs through the hilly neighborhood of Manati. The kids enjoyed the swimming pool. It was very clean and our personal front patio area was great. We grilled chicken and steak and hung out there during our toddlers nap time. The kids made forts out front and they found tons of shells and seaglass. Our property manager Robert was more then helpful! He answered all our questions and went out of his way to help us when I had to take my daughter to the doctors one day while we were there. He made a few phone calls and we were able to see his doctor. I would definitely recommend this condo and would encourage others to get out to this tropical land full Beauty. The hurricane definitely left it?s mark but they are recovering from it and they would love our business and help by visiting.

    Manager's Response: Hi Daniell, Thank you for your feedback and we're glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay! The whole area continues to show steady improvement from the hurricane, and this beach in particular is back to normal. As an open beach, it can be a bit more rough than closed beaches. It does have a sandy area with access to the ocean, and the rocky section out front can be fun for kids to splash around in the pools when the waves aren't too high. The homeowner always wants to ensure that guests have a fun, relaxing, and safe vacation. Thank you again for visiting and for your feedback, and we hope to see you again soon! Best, The Evolve Team

    The drive to the condo was an adventure. The view when you come over the last hill is breathtaking. Bob, the property manager, provided me all the information that I could possibly need about the condo and surrounding area. He was readily available to answer any questions or provide recommendations. The condo is beautifully decorated, clean and spacious. There were five women in our group, and we had plenty of room to move around. The blender got a lot of use!! The view from the balcony is to die for. Waking up to the sound of crashing waves was so relaxing. We hung out on the beach in front of the condo at night just enjoying the sounds. For swimming, Mar Chiquita Beach is a three minute walk. The condo has any and every thing that you could need for a day of fun at the beach. I recommend wearing the beach shoes if you are going to climb the rocks down by the beach. If you are forced to leave the condo for dinner, please try Costa Azul. It is about a five minute drive and the food/service is amazing. Try Panaderia Santa Teresa, also about a five minute drive, for grocery shopping and breakfast. We shopped while our breakfast was prepared. Best $2.50 I have ever spent. Just driving around the local area was interesting. We met some really nice people. Everyone was happy to help us when we got lost. I will definitely be back as often as possible!!

    I don't even know where to start. The manager Bob met us on time and walked us through this beautiful condo that is adorable. Attention to detail is great. The decor is tasteful and absolutely beautiful. Super clean, has an updated look. Beds were comfortable, and the sheets were cozy. Nice sheets, NOT cheap at all. Bathrooms were a nice size. The living space was comfortable and the best part was that the TV had Netflix in it! Dining table was nice too but since it was just 3 of us we ate our meals at the counter on the stools. There are speakers and a kindle for music. The kitchen has most everything. I made breakfast everyday, ate lunch at the beach and most dinners out. If you don't have it, ask Bob he will take care of it for you. I recommend if staying more than a week to get the housekeeper in between, Lucy she is super nice and is very helpful. Being by the beach, sand is everywhere so you'll need help keeping up. They do provide some cleaning products and a broom to sweep. My favorite thing about the condo was the patio on the beach. There are speakers for music, you can grill, there's a deck and there are lights on the tree in the evening it was so cute. We loved to just drink our homemade sangria (that we bought at the beach from the Sangria guy) and listen to the waves and our music in the evenings. My daughters best time passed was looking for hermit crabs. There is so much nature to be enjoyed. Mar Chiquita is awesome if you want to swim and snorkel. The beach in front of the condo isn't recommended for swimming as the waves are really high, but you walk on this beach and go a couple of blocks west and boom you are at Mar Chiquita. The owners have provided everything you need to be on the beach. Chairs, and Umbrella, even a tent. Cooler, sand toys, towels, and even swimming shoes. We were so amazed that everything was there, every little thing we needed. Utilize the swimming shoes because you will need them, the rocks on Mar Chiquita are slippery and you can take a nasty fall. Luckily we had them and got to enjoy the beach right away. There is a Walmart not too far from the condo where you can pick up anything you need and if you plan on making meals, Walmart has it all. I really loved this place. It really was home away from home. We plan on coming back again next year and I know we are going to make it a family tradition from here on out. Thank you Bob for your help every single time we asked for it. Reviewer location Plainfield, Illinois

    My best friend and I rented this condo for a week long trip, and I'm so glad we did. It's beautiful, quiet and close enough to the public beach that you can enjoy both the private beach right outside and walk a little foot trail to the public side. We were there after the peak tourist season which if you want to really experience the area I would recommend. We loved the outdoor patio area, the grill can be a little tricky to get going with the breeze coming in off the ocean, but it's definitely worth the effort.

    We immediately fell in love with this lovely condo at Seaside. Bob greeted us and was very gracious and showed us around. The location was dreamy, quiet and peaceful. The complex is small and private and we felt right at home. Everything you could ever want was either in the condo or in the garage. The highlight of my boyfriend's stay was fishing from the shore right in front of the house where he caught (and released) a really cool, good sized fish with the rod that was provided. Of course he loved the nice TV with Netflix and HULU too! The balcony ran the length of the condo with lots of seating. We hung the hammock (which was in the garage) and enjoyed swaying in the breeze and with the sound of the waves landing on the beach. The pool was just right, warm and out of the wind. We loved that too. The condo was VERY clean and had everything. The beds were wonderfully comfortable and the air conditioning perfect and quiet. The beach out front could not have been closer, it was fairly private with lots of palm trees for shade, lots of sand, and plenty of space to walk. A one minute walk to our left put us in the Mar Chiquita Beach, a beautiful, unusual ocean pool where we snorkeled. We even had a cool outdoor patio/yard to grill in and sit with cocktails, and another spot for the hammock by the shore. The d�cor inside the condo was attractive and beachy, light and happy. The location was fantastic, anything and everything was just minutes away, but, you had the feeling you were in your own private paradise. We hope to come back and stay here again. The only slightly disconcerting thing were all the keys, but, we got used to that and felt very safe. Thanks to Bob for making it special.

    My wife and I wanted a getaway and wow were we surprised. Seaside is in a great location, gated community, and quite and tranquil. While we were there, we met two other couples that were also on vacation and even went to dinner at Costa Azul together, which is great PR cuisine less than a mile away. The advantage of this, it just reaffirmed our decision on this little gem. There are a handful of condos rented in this complex, and we had the opportunity to see three of them. They are all relatively the same, different d_cor, but same layout. It is all about the amenities. This condo had everything, and I mean everything you need. From being extremely clean upon check-in, to supplying soap, shampoo, a vanity kit, and even supplying dish washing soap. The decor lets you know you are at the beach. Air conditioning in every room, and if you wanted to relax, there was even a Kindle available and loaded with books and magazines to read. Even though we met some good people while we were there, the majority of our time was spent at our place. This property has it all. The outdoor entertainment area was the best. We had a great deck, outdoor Bluetooth stereo while we talked and listened to the waves, and since we grilled late, a light over the grill. As miniscule as that sounds, no other unit had a light over the grill area, but ours did. It's the small things that made this place perfect for our vacation. One night the girls hung out on the balcony and the boys took the fishing poles out of the garage and attempted to catch fish and all we caught was a hangover. This was the most fun my wife and I have had in years. This condo is a ten. Book with confidence, Bob knows the area and the location is top notch. We already are planning our next trip.

    In quick, this place was absolutely more than we expected. This was our first trip to Puerto Rico and this property definitely set the tone for our whole trip. The views were absolutely stunning. The condo was listed as furnished, but was so much more than that. The amenities were amazing. They even had fishing and snorkeling gear for our use! The peace and security that the condo brought made it hard to leave the gated area. Some days, I would just as soon sit on our private porch listening to the waves and watching the breath taking ocean front view. Bob was a pleasure to work with. We had no issues arise where we needed Bob for anything, but I am certain he was available if we did. Alfredo, the grounds keeper was amazing. He spoke barely any english but was very helpful. He was friendly and very interactive. I would definitely give this condo a ten out of ten. A more than suitable home away from home. The location was great and everything you needed was 10 minutes away. We will be definitely coming back to this location. A huge thanks to Bob, Alfredo, and Lucy for making our first trip to Puerto Rico an amazing one. You guys are the best and exceeded any expectations we could possible have.

The electronic welcome book also gave us peace of mind knowing where everything was and how to get there. This was one of the most relaxing vacations we have had in a long time. The views from the balcony are amazing, the relaxation of the waves all day long were hypnotic. We visited a casino and a near by shopping outlet, both less than 10 minutes away. Everything you need is just a short drive away, the location is absolutely perfect. The pool was clean, and the beaches were beautiful. We are looking forward to another trip here next year.

    As soon as you walk in you know you’ve made the right decision. The pictures don’t do any justice at all. The place is amazing, spacious and super clean. The outdoor area is just perfect. We ate outside every single day! Not far from the airport and secluded for relaxing. My friend and I also wanted to explore the island and it was perfectly located to do the many activities and attractions offered. We loved spelunking the caves in Camuy and Ziplining over the rain Forrest. When it came to relaxing, you were less than 100 steps to the beach and a short walk to snorkel the cove. The owners were great host and very responsive. 100% coming back to this condo!

    Manager response: Thank you for the glowing review, Gabriel! We loved reading your story. We hope you can come back soon!

    Never been to Puerto Rico before but this was a great trip! Took some advice from my friends to get out of San Juan and see what Puerto Rico had to offer. Condo is in a great location right on the beach, quite and clean. Way better than staying at an over packed resort and paying twice as much

    Wow! We couldn't be more pleased! We visited with our 2 small kiddos and were so glad to be right off the beach. The apartment was so cozy and we had plenty of space! A welcome packet was sent by email that provided all the information we needed about Manati, making it easy to get out and get anything we needed. The wifi was also a plus as it allowed us to get a little work done during our stay. This blew our expectations out of the water.

    This rental surpassed all of our expectations as did Bob the rental manager. Before we even left for our vacation we received the regular instructions regarding check-in, as well as, detailed information about the area, activities and must see sites. Upon arrival Bob met us at the rental and explained how everything we needed to enjoy a relaxing vacation was at our fingertips. After a familiarization tour of the rental, Bob also pointed us in the direction of beaches, landmarks and answered any questions we had. The rental was beautifully decorated , spacious and clean. The pictures are nice but they don't do justice . Beyond the interior , we had a great private patio area complete with a grill and prep area. Also at our disposal were beach chairs, a hammock and of course the beach. We were far enough away from everything to enjoy the peace and solitude we were looking for and yet, we were just a short drive away from shopping and a variety of activities. We will be planning a return visit. *Originally posted on Homeaway/VRBO for a stay in December 2016

    This property was very clean and full of island flare. You can not get enough of the sound of the waves, so close to you. My husband and I spent the majority of our time walking along the secluded beach, and sitting on the balcony watching the waves.

    We had a great visit to Seaside Apartments in Manati, Puerto Rico. The condo was just as described, and Bob the property manager was very attentive and easy to contact. The condo was right on the beach, and the view from the balcony was breathtaking. I would definitely recommend this property to people who want to get away from it all and enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean.

    I am from Puerto Rico, but my husband and children are from the States. I decided to spent Christmas vacation at this property in Mar Chiquita with the family. This property is perfect! It is ocean front. Our girls and we loved being able to go walk on the beach first thing in the morning; while at night, it is pure heaven to be able to sit down in the balcony and listen to the ocean waves. A few steps down the beach, you get to Mar Chiquita and you can also find nice local food kiosks. I had the best mojito ever! (and sipped it from the comfort of my balcony watching the ocean).
    The property has all amenities you'll need to have a comfortable stay in paradise. It felt safe, and our girls enjoyed the beach, as well as the pool. The apt. also has internet, Netflix, Amazon, cable and even Bluetooth stereo where you can play your own music!
    The property manager was very responsive, met with us on time upon arrival and worked with us efficiently. The welcome package they sent us has all the information you need to find local stores, places to visit, shopping, etc.
    If you want to learn more about Puerto Rico, you can also go visit the Camuy Caverns, the Arecibo Radar, the "Window Cave", etc. These are close by this property. We even escaped to the South part of the island.
    We will definitely stay here again. I highly recommend this beautiful property. We had a great vacation!

    We have been coming to PR for years with my family. We always enjoy Mar Chiquita, which helped us decide on this property. This property has it all. The sound of the waves put you in a trance. Being able to walk everyday to swim in Mar Chiquita was awesome. You can not get any closer to Mar Chiquita than this. Great property, great beach, great time.

    My wife and I wanted a quick getaway and being in California that usually means Catalina or Hawaii. We opted to try Puerto Rico for a change and we were very surprised. This condo is in a small gated community and we felt it was ours. The condo literally sits on the water, couldn't be more than 50 feet from the ocean. Sitting on the balcony overlooking the calm waves of the Atlantic was so very peaceful. The community pool was clean and well maintained. The condo was well maintained, extremely clean, with certain tech enhancements that make your stay that much more enjoyable. I'm not just talking wifi and cable tv, Netflix at night with the windows open on the couch, a wireless music system that you can connect through your phone and listen to any music you want while in the condo or on the balcony. Prior to booking, an electronic welcome book to help plan our trip. The property manager was nice and helpful prior to, during and leaving from our vacation. The beaches in the area are very beautiful. We will definitely be back to enjoy this little piece of tranquility.

    This was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. The area is beautiful, quite, secure, and literally steps from the beach. Sitting on the balcony, listening to the waves, watching the palm trees sway and a glass of wine is true peace. The condo was very clean and contained everything we needed for our week long trip. We really enjoyed all the beach décor, it really does make you feel you are at the beach. We were impressed that both bedrooms contained full size dressers and we didn't have to live out of suitcases all week long. Another convenient factor was the property manager emailing us an electronic welcome book prior to our arrival. This gave us the opportunity to plan our trip, get familiar with the area, have an understanding where the grocery store, gas stations, etc. were located. We were able to book and plan our trip with ease. Side note, it is all linked up through google maps, so we were never worried about getting lost. Like I said, most relaxing vacation ever. We will come back again and again. Thank you so much for the memories.

    Having left PR as a young adult, coming back for vacation is always exciting. Finding this apt as an alternative to stay when traveling back home has made it even better! It's a short drive from the airport, away from the congestion of the metro area, and as soon as you arrive, you're greeted by the ocean breeze and the sound of waves. The apt is spacious, beautiful, spotlessly clean, and very well maintained. From the comfortable beds, to the fully equipped kitchen, and the private picnic area with an awesome grill, it has all the amenities for a perfect stay, and more. Walking down, across the parking lot to Mar Chiquita beach is priceless. La Poza de las Mujeres is also beautiful, with crystal clear waters, and only a short 5 minute drive away. This apt has become my place to stay every time I visit PR. I feel fortunate to have found this wonderful gem in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico!! *This review was originally posted on VRBO for a stay in Jul-16

    Ocean Front Paradise

    My family's experience during this stay was phenomenal. I have frequently visited Puerto Rico and have stayed in various ocean view and "beach front" properties throughout the island. I must say this place is absolutely breathtaking and literally steps away from the beach. For those beach bums like myself that want to hear the sound of the waves, whether you're on the beach or on the private balcony, you won't be disappointed. For those of you just interested in the scenery but want to explore more of the adventures and sight seeing, the lighthouse in Arecibo, Caverns of Camuy, Barceloneta Outlets to name a few are all within a 20 mile radius or less. This condo shows the pride of ownership. It was clean, a lot of sleeping space was available to accommodate my large family. It had everything we needed. One interesting yet minor detail that made this stay extremely pleasant was the decor with bright colors throughout the condo and small beach like accents. There was also a private pool which my kids truly enjoyed and a really neat conch on the private patio shower head. One lasting touch were the magnets on the fridge for us as a keepsake or gift. I will not hesitate to stay here again upon my return to Puerto Rico! Thank you for making this such an enjoyable trip for my family and me!

    We spent 7 days at this great gem. Just at few steps to a beautiful beach facing to the North with an awesome sunrise. The apartment was very neat, clean and confortable with all the necessary accesories required to make you feel as you were at home. The view from the balcony was relaxing and expectacular. The noise from the waves at night it sound like music to your ears. At night we observed the stars from the roof or hang in the balcony drinking some wine and relaxing. The beach resort was at short walking distance, which we enjoyed walking by the beach. Very friendly town to dining out or to visit the casino for a bit of fun. Nice and well maintained swimming pool and around the apartments. This place is highly recommended and I can't wait to return for another relaxing and enjoyable vacation.

    Perfect!

    Reviewed by: Liz on

    Perfect is the only word I can think of to describe this apartment. All six of us (a 40 something married couple traveling with two children (10 & 11) and 75 year-old grandparents) loved this seaside apartment. And believe me, ���seaside�۝ is accurate ��� the beach is literally out the door, and across the garden ��� about a minute and you�۪re there!



    The apartment was spotless and well stocked with everything we needed (towels, sheets, beach equipment, etc.) Plus, the space was cute; the kids especially loved the beach-themed d̩cor. The six of us had plenty of space and never felt cramped. As great as the apartment itself is, its location is even better! This unit is perfectly located if you want to be out of the hustle and bustle of a big city like San Juan (which is only a 45 minute drive away.)



    There are so many neat things right by this rental:



    �ۢ Just a three minute walk down the beach is Mar Chiquita ��� the most amazing beach you�۪ve ever seen. We swam and snorkeled every day, twice a day, and were often the only tourists there. The people we met were always friendly and often asked us if we were enjoying our visit to PR. The kids also regularly got to chatting / playing with local kids and had a blast collecting beach glass. (We always wore water shoes, but I never saw any sharp broken glass.) Mar Chiquita is probably a safer place to swim than the beach immediately out in front of the apartment. This area had larger waves and we saw numerous sea urchins. Over at Mar Chiquita the waves were smaller and the only urchins we saw were way out in deeper water. Plus, in this protected area there was no danger of rip currents.



    �ۢ Just a few minutes�۪ drive down the road is Los Tubos MTB ��� a scenic walking / mountain biking trail that�۪s part of the Laguna Tortuguero Nature Preserve. We walked for a few hours and enjoyed the scenery and the completely deserted trails and beaches. The entire time we were there we only saw one other local family.



    �ۢ Only an hour away is the Arecibo Observatory - the world�۪s largest single dish radio telescope. If you are even remotely geeky, it is totally worth the drive. And, as you drive through the mountains, you get the chance to stop at a number of roadside fruit stands. Trust me, they were the best mangos, pineapple and bananas I�۪ve ever eaten!



    �ۢ Plus, just 30 minutes down the road from Arecibo is the Rio Camuy Caves Park. Cueva Clara is simply amazing with lots of formations.



    �ۢ A bit closer to the apartment (maybe 15 minutes) is Wal-Mart. Everything you need is there. There is also a Walgreens or a CVS (I can�۪t recall which) nearby as well. If you go to Wal-Mart, stop at New Flavor China. It�۪s a small Chinese take-out place in the same parking lot as Wal-Mart. You can also eat in and their portions are HUGE. The 6 of us ate dinner for $46.00, and had enough leftovers for lunch the next day. Plus, we had enough leftover fried rice to use to make two more breakfasts. It was well worth the $46.00!



    �ۢ Just across the street from the apartment�۪s gated parking is an interesting overhang cave. It didn�۪t go back too far, but the kids enjoyed exploring and looking the formations and hunting for lizards.



    �ۢ Between the apartment and the beach is a small area full of palm trees and sea grape plants that was a perfect habitat for hermit crabs and lizards. The kids spent hours hunting and catching critters. (Which were always released.)



    �ۢ My daughter loved the apartment�۪s pool area. She loved that the pool was fresh water and there were fountains that squirted into the pool.



    Another thing we just loved about this rental was the quiet. In the morning we could sit on the balcony, sip our coffee and listen to the waves breaking on the beach. At night we could still hear the waves, but we were more interested in the calls of the little coqui frogs Puerto Rico is so famous for. We heard them every night.



    Finally, Bob the property manager was a dream to work with. He was prompt to return pre-stay calls and emails, double checked and called two days before our arrival to make sure we had received the driving directions, and met us at the property to get us organized. While we were there he provided us with driving directions, and immediate replies to our questions. He was there when we needed him, but didn�۪t hover over us. In short, he was perfect ��� just like this property.
