Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I was extremely skeptical and nervous renting the house (being that this was my first time in Puerto Rico) and to my surprise it was more than I expected. Annette was amazing in ensuring we had all we needed and provided me suggested 'go-to' spots in advance. The house is extremely clean and spacious for a party of 8. I have no complaints and have already reached out to them again to schedule my next trip! The location is perfect because it is in the center of all the hot spots and Annette can provide ️you information for cab services who are always only minutes away.

Great Alternative to the Resorts

  • 5 of 5

Villa Serena is a great place to stay in San Juan if you want to avoid the resort areas but still want access to the beach. My family of five stayed there for 3 nights in March and was very happy with the experience. I have occasionally had owners provide a little coffee but at Villa Serena there was coffee, milk, pineapple juice, fruit, and even some beer and rum as part of a welcome gift. The kitchen was very well equipped for a rental house and the wireless worked flawlessly. The neighborhood the house is located in is very nice and it was great to be able to walk to the beach and some good restaurants including the cafeteria style sandwich frequented by the President of the U.S. during a recent visit to Puerto Rico. Other more acclaimed restaurants are an easy drive away. Since so many sites in or around San Juan are most easily reachable by a car there is a real advantage to having easy access to your car and free parking. It was an easy day trip to old San Juan (where parking is very cheap relative to big mainland U.S. and Canadian cities) and El Yunque. My preteen and teen children made fast friends with some of the stray cats who frequent the neighborhood and enjoyed their time at the beach. The beach chairs and towels available at the house were great. The beach was very lively on the weekend with local residents playing music and having a great time. There is a running track in the park a few blocks away that fills with local residents out running and walking in the evening and there is a very nice run along the beach that takes you past the high rises in Condado. Communicating with the owner to rent the house was easy and the deposit was returned promptly. Villa Serena is a great place to stay in San Juan.

Nice Property with Access to Everything

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6 adults and were a little concerned that the house would be able to adequately accommodate for all of us, turns out the house worked great. With many little cut away areas to hang out, read a book, take a nap, get some time to yourself the party of 6 felt more like a get away for 2. The house has a great kitchen, bedrooms, patio, living room, and master bath. The only room that was a bit of a let down was the main bathroom and that is only because the tub is small and would not drain well. Otherwise the house was perfect.

The house is located in an okay neighborhood, a 2 minute walk will get you to a nice beach and large park. There is lots to do in San Juan as well as the Island of Puerto Rico, so we would recommend renting a car as it gives you more flexibility of schedule and pace. Otherwise there is a bus stop near by the house that will take you into the heart of San Juan for 75 cents.

There is a local grocery store near by that you walk to or take a taxi to larger newer store down the road.

All in all we loved the house and loved Puerto Rico! We would strongly recommend this location and place for future travel.

Villa Serena was just what we had hoped to find.

  • 5 of 5

Of course once settled in (right away) we fell n in love with the place!

We so much appreciated the provisions awaiting us. By the third day, we went to the SuperMax Grocery store that Tania mentioned, to restock.

Although we missed having our sons and other guest, it was extra spacious for the two of us. We got used to that pretty quickly, no problem

Having the washer and dryer was very nice!

And now, we are hoping to return to this house on a future visit to PR.

Home for Mom

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful. Plenty of space for the 7 of us, close to the beach,and conveniently located. The complimentary starter grocery delivered upon our arrival was a great touch especially after a hiccup in communication that created hours of us standing outside the house for key delivery. John graciously handled the situation and made changes to prevent that from happening again. Overall, we had a fantistic time and would definately rent from him again. THANK YOU JOHN!!

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the airport at 6:30 P.M we had arranged transportation through the owner of the property. Upon arrival at the airport we were met by transport driver with no problems. Driver advised us that John, would meet us at property. Upon arrival we were met by John who showed us around the house and told us of things to do in the neighborhood. A great suprize was that John had made sure we had coffee for the morning as well as juice, some adult beverages, it was GREAT!!!!!

The house is as pictured and very clean, we would absolutely rent this property or any other property that John owns again without a doubt. Thanks for the great vacation John, hope we get to rent from you again. Oh, and also deposit was received in our account shortly after our departure.
