Overview

Miramar Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Mountain (El Yunque) View W/ Balcony, Full Kitchen And Close To The Beach

One of two spacious penthouse apartments at 1664 Ponce De Leon with a balcony facing El Yunque, the mountains of central Puerto Rico and San Juan bay.

The private apartment is centrally located half-a-mile from the beach, at the corner of Ponce de Leon Ave and Eduardo Conde Ave in Santurce, San Juan. The apartment location encourages a blend between vacation in a cool, artsy neighborhood and the perfect beach getaway.

With your reservation you will be welcome to use the facilities at the most exclusive rooftop club in Condado, with an amazing pool, bar, food and amazing views of the Condado Lagoon--a unique opportunity.

The building is right in front of a bus stop for the main bus line of the city (the M3), a block away from several churches, two blocks away from the largest art museum and many smaller galleries, in immediate proximity to quaint coffee shops and cool restaurants and bars and important sights (Like: Old San Juan, Condado, cruise ship piers, convention center, parks, hospitals, historical churches and Plaza las Americas).

There are two rooms (one master and one guest room,) one bathroom, one kitchen, a spacious living room and the balcony.

There are two flights of stairs before you reach the front door of your apartment—the building does not have an elevator.

The apartment has WiFi, air conditioning, a TV with cable, Netflix, Hulu Plus and a DVD player, good books, and a fully equipped kitchen.

The master bedroom has a queen-size bed, and everything else that makes it a normal room. The guest room has a full sized bed.

The bathroom has a shower—towels, soap and shampoo included—and everything else that makes it a normal bathroom.

The kitchen has a small refrigerator, a microwave, stove top, conventional oven, distilled water cooler and a coffee maker—coffee included. Cups, plates, forks, knives, and spoons are also supplied.

The living room has a dinning table that seats six, a couch, a plush leather chair and a coffee table. There is a TV with cable, a DVD Player and a Roku to watch Netflix and Hulhu Plus and a bookshelf with a bunch of good books and DVD's.

The sofa pulls out to a queen sized bed.

There are a couple of chairs on the balcony to watch the sun set over the bay on.

The neighborhood is quiet, fun and authentic. It's not the touristy side of town; the apartment is not next to a big casino or a five-star hotel.

You'll find cool coffee shops, bars, restaurants, and music venues where the locals hang out. (In front of the building is a coffee shop that has live jazz every Friday night, for example.) Three blocks down is the largest art museum in San Juan, and close by are other great museums and art galleries to visit. There are a handful of theaters nearby, with all kinds of productions (improve, drama, classics, and varied temporary shows). It's a friendly neighborhood, so if your not into anything that's going on, you can always stick around and play dominoes with the older locals at the bar down the street. (For a list of what's happening this week in the neighborhood: (website hidden) .)

Because the location is so centric, it's easy to venture to Old San Juan or the beach from here.

Taxis from the airport to the apartment cost about $20. Public transportation out of the airport is possible but difficult, and impossible after 9 p.m. If you're not into the taxi situation, and I'm not working, I can pick you up for half the cost.

If you need anything during your stay, I'm just a call or text away. I live in the building next to this one, and work one block down the road.

Please contact me if you have any questions or would like more information.

About Sebastian Humbert

I'm a journalist covering sports in PR for an international news-gathering organization. I was born in Puerto Rico and just moved back to the island after living in Boston. I love windsurfing, spending time on the beach and getting to know new places.

Sebastian Humbert purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Sebastian Humbert chose Miramar

It's close to everything! It's in an island city setting, so there are cafes, restraunts, bars, music venues, supermarkets, gyms, and, of course, the beach right at your doorstep!

What makes this apartment unique

This is right on one of the most important avenues (Ave Ponce de Leon) in Puerto Rico, so all of the main bus lines are right there and very frequent (every 4-5 minutes during the day). The balcony is also pretty awesome. It's great to sit out with a cold drink after a day at the beach and watch the sunset!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment was clean, spacious and quite lovely. The view from the balcony - STUNNING, grab a cup of coffee in the morning . . . a great way to start the day. While it's true that it's no where near the tourist areas, it was central to everything. The best part of the apartment for us, however, would be Sebastian. He's super helpful, there when you need him, super accessible and an all around friendly guy. We arrived, dropped off our bags and he took us across the street, bought us coffee at abracadabra and then proceeded to drive us around to get us oriented to the neighborhood. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay off the beaten path but close to the action.

The apartment was neat and well kept. The location was very conveniently located. Sebastian was the best landlord we could have asked for. He was very pleasant and helpful. I would recommend to my friends.

Great experience on a great island!

  • 5 of 5

Sebastian's apartment was spacious, clean, and had everything you'd need. Both beds were really comfortable. It is a really neighborhoody location away from the touristy areas, yet central to everywhere you'd want to go. If you have a rental car, there's ample parking spaces on the street. Sebastian is a great host, extremely accessible, helpful and pleasant. For us, he was the best part of staying in his apartment. The day we arrived, I had trouble with direction on the way from the airport. After locating us, Sebastian came finding us right away. Then he took us to the little cafe across the street after we settled in the apartment. During our stay, I bombarded him with questions and we were impressed with how knowledgeable and friendly he always was. Overall, we enjoyed our vacation in PR and would definitely stay with him again.
