Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

It was a beautiful stay. Location was wonderful, Very safe and convenient. Adorable apartment. Honestly at first I was somewhat disappointing, pictures can be a bit deceiving. The place definitely needs upgrading and some minor repairs, for example: paint, bathroom cracks, and air condition leakage. Otherwise it was a suitable stay.

Location, Location, Location!

  • 5 of 5

I have only one criticism of this property which I will get out of the way. There are some cosmetic issues in the house that do need addressing, the pool wall, the ceiling above the door to the balcony in the living room (water leakage) and the interior paint in the living room could use a little love. I know, everyone is a critic. ;)

That being said, from the moment you email Isabel your worries about renting a property no where near you are gone. She's very responsive. We rented a car at San Juan airport, which they say you don't need one, but it's so easy to drive around and we went to some restaurants that were amazing but too far to walk. Not only that, it's cheap to rent a car there, we were so surprised at the price!

Finding the house with the directions Isabel provided was so easy she also reserved us a parking spot right by the house which was awesome. We pulled in Ana was there to greet us and was kind enough to carry our bags up and show us the house and tell us about some restaurants that were very close and very delicious by the way.

Minus the cosmetic issues, the house was clean and bright, I noticed the humming birds feeding on the blossoms on the tree right outside the 2nd floor balcony, there was 10 of them! I've never seen anything like it! There was four chairs out there that were comfy to sit in and watch them so that's what I did. The rooftop is AMAZING. You have a pool, the beach right in front of you and the city and mountains behind you. There is a grill up there, that we used to grill strip steaks that turned out amazing as you can raise and lower the grill over the coals to regulate the heat for your food.

The main bedroom, let me tell you about the bed, it was comfy. I couldn't believe it, you stay in places and they have these beds which makes you wonder how old they are. It wasn't too soft and it wasn't too hard, I slept like a baby on it. My wife has scoliosis and she never had one back problem from sleeping on that bed. That is not usual. The beach is literally 20 steps from the front door, and before you walk out the door there are some very nice beach chairs, snorkeling equipment and even Bocce! There's floaties and noodles for the pool too. There is also kite surfing on the beach if you want lessons.

You are 10 minutes from San Juan and 10 minutes from Old San Juan the location of the property couldn't be better if you wanted to go in either direction for something. All in all, we loved it.

Very inviting

  • 5 of 5

I would love to find the person who cancelled in time for us to rent this property and shake their hand!! The layout provided enough space so that you didn't have that feeling of being on top of each other. (Four females, two and a half bathrooms, perfect equation!!) The views from the rooftop deck were so beautiful. The condos location was perfect everything was within walking distance or just a short straight drive away. We had coffee on the patio with hummingbirds, and iguanas! And spent more time in the pool than the beach. Ana was so inviting and provided us with great suggestions for dining and local attractions.. I cannot wait until our next trip.

Great property, great location

  • 5 of 5

Isabel was a great hostess. She and her husband were not in San Juan when we arrived, so we met with Ana their property Manager. She was great, gave us a tour and even recommended some local restaurants for lunch. Place was clean, comfy and spacious. 30 sec walk to the beach. Will definitely look to them again when going back to San Juan.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in San Juan. Anna was amazing and so hospitable. The property was beautiful and had everything we needed! Thank you all so much! We will definitely recommend! The only (minor) negative was the lack of window coverings in bedrooms. The sun is bright at 6:00 am, so our daughter never slept in and wish we could have darkened the room a little, if we come back we may bring window coverings. Lol. Thank you all again! It was fabulous!

What a wonderful experience in San Juan

  • 5 of 5

Starting with the reservation process, the owner is very reasonable, knowledgeable and professional. Even though she lives in France, is super responsive and has a local caretaker that is a true professional. She was there to welcome us; the coordination was awesome. The unit was in perfect order. All was as described. We travelled with all our 4 adult sons and a daughter in law and granddaughter. The even provided a nice crib (unrequested). These folks really know how to manage. The beach is right there. It's a quiet area, very secured (the beach mansion across the street has private guards 24 hours that are very friendly). You can walk to many nearby restaurants, bars, coffee shops, cafeterias, grocery stores, etc. This is the place for a family exploring Puerto Rico to have as homebase.. Plus THE Beach is great! Thanks

We are between Condado and Ocean Park a pleasant, lively neighborhood of San Juan, with many local and trendy restaurants (walking distance) and one of the most beautiful urban beach in the world the beach of Ocean Park (we have even turtles coming every April). From here, you are 1 hour drive to the amazing 'bioluminescent bay' (evening excursion) and 20 minutes fly (or 2 hour by car and ferry) to the islands of Vieques and Culebra. Also, huge caves, the Arecibo observatory (featured in several films), and the tropical forest of El Yunque are only 1 hour drive from here. Several Golf courses are available within 20 minutes drive. Finally, Old San Juan is just 10 min. drive.
