The tropical wonders of Puerto Rico await at this 1-bed, 1-bath vacation rental home for 4. Nestled right on the water, this Playa Salinas home is truly a piece of paradise. Take the kayaks, paddle boards, or snorkel gear (available at a small additional fee) right into the water, settle down for an afternoon barbecue on the patio, or walk to a plethora of beachfront restaurants!
-- THE PROPERTY --
Bedroom: Queen Bed | Living Room: Futon
The sparkling ocean views create a warm welcome to this Puerto Rican casita. As soon as you arrive, throw on your swimsuit and dip your feet in the water right off the back yard.
If you can’t bring yourself out of the fresh air, don’t worry, as you can simply whip up a barbecue dinner on the patio and dine amidst the sound of rolling waves.
The home’s interior offers a cozy living room, dining room, and well-equipped kitchen, so you’ll have all the necessary comforts of home. After a day paddling on the ocean, unwind in the living room as a show plays on the flat-screen cable TV, or whip up a nice meal with the kitchen’s updated appliances.
Come nighttime, the heads of the house can curl up on the bedroom’s comfy queen bed, while 2 additional guests can sleep on the living room futon. The bathroom offers plenty of space to wash the sand off your toes, while the shared laundry room outside can keep all your belongings nice and clean.
-- THE LOCATION --
You’ll never feel a need to leave the house with all there is to do right outside! For an additional fee, take out a kayak or paddle board to cruise along the turquoise waters! If you’d rather layout in the sand, Polita's Beach with its unique wade to tropical island is just a block away.
The Santa Isabel Beach is just a 12-minute drive away. Named after the Spanish Queen Isabel la Catolica, the seafront area features small restaurants and bars near the beach. Be sure to bring along the home’s snorkeling gear!
Nestled in the heart of the ‘Ruta Gastronomica’, there are dozens of dining choices within easy walking distance. Grab a romantic dinner at Le Balcon de Capitan for a taste of the area's best waterfront cuisine. Walk a little further to the colorful El Barkita for an immersion of local fun with karaoke and dancing on Sunday evenings. Early risers will enjoy the new bakery with homemade pastries, breakfast, and delicious coffee just 200 yards from the casita.
For some fun away from the water, check out Museo de Bellas Artes, El Legado Golf Resort, Puerto Rico International Speedway, Albergue Olimpico, and so much more - all just a short drive away. Being an island territory, all of Puerto Rico is an easy day excursion, including El Yunque (the rain forest), surfing beaches, old San Juan shopping, historic forts, bioluminescence paddling, coffee plantations, and more!

Looks great In photos. But was lacking a few things. First night was good. Second night noticed my wife started having allergy problems. We started looking around and found mold around the edges of the ceiling. Decided that we shouldn’t stay and sent in a request to possibly have some money refunded. But no answer for a few days from the rental team. They didn’t even ask why we wanted to leave. They just declined the request. I understand the cancellation policy and read it throughly. But I thought they may make an acceptation considering the mold making it unsafe. Only reason I’m giving them two stars is because the back patio was nice to sit on and make a meal on the grill.

Both Evolve and the homeowner would like to take this opportunity to respond to Justin's feedback:
Hi Justin, We were very sorry to hear that the casita fell short of your expectations. The homeowner takes great pride in providing a tropical getaway for each guest that they host, and the property is thoroughly cleaned and maintained by a professional service so that travelers can enjoy truly exceptional experiences here. We apologize that our team did not follow up on your request appropriately, and we have spoken with the team member who handled your case so that all cancelation requests can be better handled by our team moving forward. The safety of our guests is our highest priority, and we are happy to confirm that there is no mold anywhere on the property. We apologize again that our customer service missed the mark for your reservation. We are confident that the owner will continue to provide the high level of service that they are known! Thank you for helping us improve, and we would love the opportunity to host you again the next time you're in Playa Salinas. Best, the Evolve Team
Hello Justin, This is Lynn, the property owner. I am sorry to hear that you had an unacceptable experience at our favorite little seaside casita. I just left the property at the end of December and there were no problems with any aspect of the house at that time. I have adjusted my schedule to return in less than 2 weeks to personally follow up on your note, though I have been assured by our onsite team that there is no mold in the house. Is it possible that your wife had an allergic reaction to something tropical that would have been outside her normal exposures?
Regarding the lack of response to your early departure, the Evolve team is implementing new procedures for my properties whereby I am involved when guests communicate a dissatisfaction. Especially since we have two houses right there and could easily have moved you to the other house if there was a safety concern. Nancy in Puerto Rico and I are always on standby to work with guests and their immediate needs. We would have been happy to work out a solution for you had you contacted either of us directly. Warm regards, Lynn
Peaceful, walking distance to most things. Easy to find and get to. Great place to stay.
