AQUA4U is a beautiful Villa Hacienda located in the Ocean Park community in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
We are just 100 footsteps from the beach and adjacent to many excellent restaurants, bars, recreation,convenience stores and a coin laundry.
Just a stroll to Condado or a five minute drive to the Old San Juan historic area, San Juan International Airport, and the Hato Rey Business District.
AQUA4U has been recently remodeled - furnished and equipped with new beds, kitchen, bath and lots more...fresh and clean for your vacation retreat.
Come stay with us in our fully equipped and furnished villa.
But best of all, we are just 20 steps to the beach.
We love Ocean Park. We have lived here for 10 years with our family. It is great place to be...next to the beach and walking distance to restaurants, hotels, casinos, etc.. We are confident that you will agree with us and want to come back again and again.
The Owner purchased this villa in 2006
Ocean Park is a great real estate market. It is a safe neighborhood, is centrally located, and the only upscale residential community in all of San Juan.
Being close to everything is our unique benefit...we always say to our guest, 'when you are on our Ocean Park beach you are so close to our villas that you can leave your cold drinks in the fridge and grab a cold one everytime you want another.'
Long time no chat! OTB alums STILL marvel at how fun our Puerto Rico experience was and I want to thank you AGAIN, two years later, for such an awesome trip! We had a blast.
SUCH a blast that me and my roommate are thinking of coming down to puerto rico in May for a vacation. I wanted to check in with you before booking accommodations because we had such a pleasant and awesome experience with your company.
My roommate and I are a mighty two people. Do you have any properties that are reasonable, well located and good for just two girls? Let me know!!!!
Thanks Adam! If we come, we'd love to come to yoga w you one night!
The location was great. Exactly as stated but the property is in need of a major up date. Chairs were broken, the sleeper sofas were beyond dirty. No full set of pots and pans in either apartment. No sheets for the sleeper we had to take them off a bed in the downstairs apartment. Windows wouldnt close all the way so that meant bugs. Any one having to sleep on the sofa will be miserable it was very hot and stuffy. Kitchen sink leaked all over. Alex was great allowed us to check in early and leave our stuff because our flight was later. So the staff is very helpful. The property is in need of TLC. We also had to shower outside because neither apartment had water pressure im sure the neighbors got a great show. 10 women in this property of the 10 only 2 were dying of heat stroke because the common areas dont have air and no screens to open the windows.
All restaurants in walking distance were great. Location excellent!
We could not have asked for a better location in San Juan, steps just steps to Ocean Park beach, one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen! Safety was never a concern, day or night! Again I can not say this more Location was the best, easy to get on and off the highway to head to Old San Juan and other great destinations.
That said I would like to have seen this place a little more updated. I believe if they updates this place they could list it for more! Because again location, location!
My family rented this property for 5 nights. There were 14 of us ranging from age 15 to 56, so my main concern was that is was a good fit for everyone. It was better than good, it was great. It was clean, comfortable, and very, very close to the beach. We didn't rent cars, nor did we have to. We called for taxis for our day trips. Everything was close and the fares were reasonable. We went to Old San Juan, went parasailing, jet skiing. We found some really good restaurants, and also close enough to hit the casinos at night. If you want to plan a family vacation, especially a large family, this is the way to go. Adam was very helpful from beginning to end. If we ever decide to go back, we would definitely rent from Adam again.
I stayed at aqua4u a few years back and was a bit concerned about returning to the same place...its never as good the second time. I was really surprised AGAIN by how amazing our vacation turned out. There was lots of construction in the neighborhood last time and now there are two beautiful large homes...and the best part is the 24 hour security guard that stands right in front. The guard was really nice and even helped us carry our stuff to the beach (when we left, we gave him all of our unopened drinks food)
We also found many new restaurants this time - on the Loizza Street. I read a few reviews about the home that are simply not true. Our group was really comfortable (we each had our own kitchen which was nice) and the place is so large that all 16 of us were able to spread out without being on top of each other. I think that the owner needs to change some of the pots especially in the small studio and add some new wine glasses. I also noticed that two chairs were a bit wobbly. But besides that, the beach home is very comfortable and had everything we needed. I read some reviews about the heat, which is true. In the main room, it gets warm so you have to open the windows but the bedrooms are cool and we were never in doors during the day anyway. If you are looking for a luxury resort this is not the place but if you are looking for a great pad for a large group, on an amazing beach, then you will be happy with the money that you save.
Eight of us stayed at this villa in May 2015. It's steps away from a great beach, and comfortably slept our whole group. Three of the bedrooms are in one unit, and a separate attached unit had the fourth bedroom. I really liked this setup. We were also close to everything we needed: food (Kasalta is awesome!), supplies (Walgreens) and boozy beverages. The rental is clean, right next to the beach, and convenient for big groups.
But I had an issue was the return of my deposit. The rental has a 21 business day deposit return policy. About five weeks after getting home, I realized I never got my money back. I contacted the owner and was told they'd look into it. After another week of not hearing anything, I gave up and requested the money back through my credit card. It could have been an honest mistake or mix up, but without communication from the owners, I didn't know what was going on and I needed that money. I ended up getting the deposit back through my credit card.
We just spent a long weekend in San Juan at the 8 Atlantic Place (Ocean Park) property for a bachelor party. The location is wonderful and truly just steps away from the beach. There is a front gate, which locks as well as locks on the apartment doors. The added benefit of street clothes security outside on the street contributed further to our own sense of security. The property is about a 10-15 minute taxi from Old San Juan and the more tourist-geared parts of San Juan. Being one-step removed from that space let us relax and get away from the heavier foot traffic and bustle of tourism. Taxi rides should be on a per person system, and we rarely paid more than $3-4 per passenger. Be sure to specify “Ocean Park," as well.
In terms of rooms, we slept 7 people very comfortably between the upstairs apartment and the Studio; in fact, 2-3 more people could have fit just as easily. Each bedroom comes with A/C, so nights sleeping are extremely comfortable. The kitchen is spacious and the ample dishes and cups made eating much easier. Beach and bath towels both provided.
Booking and working with Adam was always professional, efficient, and clear. He was extremely friendly in person also, offering several suggestions of places to check out and making himself available via text should we have any questions. To check out, we simply followed the clearly spelled out procedure, hung our keys near the door and let him know. Very easy.
Not only will I strongly recommend this property and it’s associated spaces to anyone (bachelor parties, family get away, etc.), but I will also be staying there on any future trips to San Juan—and after this first trip I’m sure that there will be several. Many thanks to Adam and all of the staff at Aqua4U for making this trip so memorable. Oh, and if you go, be sure to check out Kasalta Bakery just down the street. This little gem is not to be missed.

How far are you from the airport,beach, Old San Juan, Casinos?
We are located in the middle of the city within walking distance to almost everything.
Depending on your villa, the beach is either 20 steps or 99 steps from AQUA4U.
The Airport is 7-10 minutes by taxi. Old San Juan is 7-10 minutes by taxi o 45 minute walk.
The Casinos and hotels are about 10-15 minute walk.
How much is the taxi from the airport?
Governemnt regulated taxi stands can be found at the gate. The taxis have set fees to Ocean Park. The rate is $17 plus a few dollars extra for bags.
Are you close to the beach and is it public?
Yes. We are very close. We dont say we are on the beach but you can hear the waves and see the scattered sand in front of our villas. The beach is public and free to all. Click here to see map.
Do we need to rent a car?
Not necessary. About 60% of our guests do not. It depends on how many day trips you want to take. There is ample transportation available at reasonable prices. We can provide you with some english speaking drivers. If you want to hang on the beach by day and party in the city at night - no need for a car.
What day trips should we not miss?
The top #2 day trips are the rain forest (El Yunque) and Bio Bay. They are fortunately both located in the same region (North east) and can be done in 1 full day. We can provide you with a driver for the rainforest - you do not need a tour inside. The Bio bay does require a special company. There are many that are safe and do a good job.
How safe is Puerto Rico?
San Juan is a big city with over 2 million people. Ocean Park is a good neighborhood but you need to behave as you would in any large city.
