Overview

About the property

2 Large Bedrooms, 2 Full bathrooms, sofa bed in living room. Sleeps 6.

A beach apartment with a great ocean view from the front balcony. This 2nd story 2 B and 2 Bath unit is a nice, tranquil, breezy apartment on a quiet little street in a gated neighborhood. It is within steps of the western end of the Isla Verde Beach and a sheltered cove. Also walking distance to wide, sandy beaches, shops, restaurants and a supermarket. The apartment is fully equipped and furnished. It has two bedrooms, including a large Master bedroom with a king size bed, large bathroom and walk-in closet. Room A/C units in both bedrooms, but no central air conditioning. The apartment is great for just opening up the double doors in the living room and enjoying the ocean breeze and view. Other amenities include cable TV, DVD/CD player, WiFi internet, and washer/dryer. It is a non-smoking apartment. Relax on the balcony or in the living room enjoying the beautiful ocean views or sit in the shady patio garden. Only a 15 minute drive to the airport and Old San Juan.

Sheltered Cove. : This sheltered cove is an excellent place for small children to play in the sand and shallow, calm waters. It is a short walk from the apartment. To get further down the beach where there are wider, sandy stretches, remember to bring good beach shoes to comfortably walk over some rocks along the way. (If you would like a bigger 3 bedroom/ 2 bath apt. see our property # 938186).

A great location for food lovers. Within a short walk of the apartment you have a wide variety of eating options. There are some fast food places (Pollo Tropical and Subway), excellent bakeries (Das Pastelhous, Panaderia Espana), great local food, including 'mofongo' (Casa Dante, Rest. El Estribo), a 24 hour diner selling local and standard dishes (Levi's), pizzerias, a food truck that sells delicious steak sandwiches (El Churry), a restaurant specializing in local, organic foods (The Garden) and other fine international restaurants including Argentinian steak houses, Japanese, Peruvian ceviche, Italian and Chinese. And if you feel like cooking your own meal, a 24 hour supermarket is just down the road.

A Real Treat for Coconut Lovers: There is a coconut vender at the entry to our street. Try one of his fresh 'coco frios' for an excellent, refreshing drink. Once you are done drinking out of the shell, he'll cut open the coconut and you can enjoy the sweet coconut inside.

Local water sports: For the more adventurous, there are a few water sports shops within walking distance of the apartment. They offer scuba and snorkeling equipment and trips, wind surfing, kite sailing and paddle boarding.

A couple of the shops (Velauno and Beach Cats) offer lessons or they can get you in touch with instructors.

Check out time is 10 am. . Check in Time is 3pm.

About John Lombardo

My family and I enjoy living in San Juan and we also love traveling. We try to combine our knowledge and appreciation of Puerto Rio with our experience as travelers when we meet and communicate with our guests. Besides the best known tourist attractions, we try to identify other more unique opportunities that our guests may enjoy and contribute to making their trip special, depending on their interests. One such opportunity is the chance to volunteer a day on a local Habitat for Humanity project; I can assist in making that happen...Just ask.

Why John Lombardo chose San Juan

The house is located in a very unique neighborhood. It's a beach area within a short walk to two great beaches. On weekends, plenty of families can be seen walking to enjoy a fun day in the sun and sand. It's urban, with restaurants, a supermarket and clubs nearby. And yet their is plenty of green with palm trees, tropical pines and bougainvillea all around.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a 2 bedroom / 2 bath apt in a small family complex with two other furnished apts available for larger groups. In total there are 5 bedrooms that can be combined for a fun family get together. Our garden patio area is a spacious, breezy part ot the house to relax or plan an outdoor dinner.

Gorgeous View! The location was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing vacation! I surprised my husband and three children with a trip to Puerto Rico. I made all of the plans on my own including this apartment and NO ONE was disappointed! The location was perfect for being able to get to other areas for sightseeing and exploring the island. After fun filled days we were able to return to the apartment for what really felt like a quiet piece of paradise. The lagoons on this section of the beach were great for the kids to play in. It was a pleasure to meet John and his wife. He was full of information and suggestions for keeping busy or just relaxing. We hope to return to Puerto Rico again and we will definitely contact John for accommodations.

Nice

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location! The owner was wonderful and very attentive to any needs we had. The beach was nice because it was away from the tourist congested area. I will say, you might need to learn some basic Spanish phrases to order food and taxi service.

The property was exactly as described could walk to the beach pretty easily.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment had everything you needed. Cooler, beach chairs, towels, extra sunscreen, and all the kitchen utensils needed. The location is really great if you don't want to be tied to your car because you can walk to any of the restaurants and most of them are pretty good! Overall Jon was really helpful in providing information on the area and making sure all was taken care of.

Amazing Location

  • 4 of 5

Easy to get to everything, the ocean views and beach are beautiful. If you like beach combing you will love this place. It's in a residential area where you will be immersed in the local culture but can easily get to the tourist attractions. Knowing some Spanish would be useful as the people we encountered at the stores did not speak English. The one thing I wish I knew before going is that although it's in a gated community the gates only stop car traffic, people on foot can easily get in all hours of the day or night. Being between the beach and skatepark there is no lack of foot traffic. We also lost electricity on 2 occasions during our stay one of which the morning of our departure, a very inconvenient time. John is very helpful and stopped by almost daily.

Owner's Response: We appreciate our guests intelligent comments. It helps us improve things that are under our control and helps future guests make good choices for their trip planning. Regarding the power, we have solar panels tied to a battery pack on our building that provides most of our energy and a clean, quiet back up energy. Unfortunately a power board was damaged so our back up did not work. We should be getting the part this week so our back up system should be good to go.

Excellent location on a small, quiet ocean front neighborhood, right across the street from the ocean and the western end of the Isla Verde Beach. A short walk to all types of restaurants, from fine dining to fast food, clubs and a 24 hour supermarket. Wind surfing and stand up paddle board rental shops nearby. Relax on the nearby beaches by day and walk to great restaurants or clubs at night. Only a 10 minute drive to the airport or to Old San Juan and easy access to the expressway to explore the entire island of enchantment.

Other Activities: During June and July, considering putting your child in the local Windsurfing camp.
