I am the type of person that worries about everything, so when my husband suggested that we rent a condo while in Puerto Rico instead of booking a hotel, I disregarded the idea. In my work, I hear about the horrible ways people are scammed every day, and yes, some of them are through online internet condo postings. I was skeptical. So, I read the guarantees on Homeaway and as long as you don’t do something like respond to an obvious scam (like send money via wire transfer), you are protected. Plus, this listing accepts credit cards, so if we showed up and the property wasn’t there, we knew we could file a chargeback request with the credit card company. With these added protections, we booked it for a week.
As first time condo renters, we were nervous. It just so happened that our arrival was scheduled just days after Irene, a level 3 hurricane, had touched down in Puerto Rico. Several beaches, the Rainforest, and several Kioskos were closed. With this news, we were concerned of the possible condition of the condo and had even pondered cancelling our trip. But then, the condo owner emailed us. She told us that she had checked on the condo and assured us that everything was fine.
We went on our trip as scheduled, and she was right! We are so glad that of all the condos for rent at Playa Azul, we chose this one (Unit is on HomeAway #170555). The condo had so many great amenities that we didn’t need to get anything while we were there! The condo was set up perfectly with so much available. Though there is air conditioning in the bed rooms, the fans also provided so much cool air and circulation that we hardly needed to use the air. There were boogie boards, beach towels, a washer/dryer, dishwasher, basically everything you would want and need. Oh, and nothing beats that view and hearing the ocean from your room while sleeping! From now on, when we rent a condo we will accept nothing less. This was a GREAT first time renting experience.
