Great time. Good home & location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The property owners were very responsive and helpful throughout the process. First time using homeaway and it was great. Renting the home and a car provided great flexibility to explore. We also used Uber & taxi service for going out on the town at night. Whether night life of Le Plaza Mercado Santurce & Old San Juan, days at Ocean Park Beach, Airport travel, going out to Farjardo for snorkeling, and El Yunke Rainforest we were able to do a bunch while staying at Villa Serena. We also had a couple of enjoyable days just chilling around the house and going running at the track/park. Great set up and we'll be back. Thanks Annette, John, and team.

Very Nice Rental Property

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Villa Serena for a wedding. All the booking and information exchange was done online. The staff responded to all my questions via email very quickly and accurately. They did an excellent job!

It was a nice surprise to see the house, especially inside. It was very clean and well equipped. Loved the decoration and the pictures on the walls.

It was great to have some beers and soda in the fridge, along with fruit, coffee, etc.

The neighborhood is not the best, but we felt very secure with all the gates. One suggestion is to code/identify the keys with the gates. It took some time to be able to find the key that corresponded to each gate/door. The ceiling fan on the terrace was a plus! Had some issues with the internet, but it was resolved promptly.

We had a very pleasant stay at Villa Serena, and we are looking forward to stay again doing our next trip to P.R.. I recommend it!

Fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a long weekend in late January and could not have been more pleased. Our part included three >70 and this house was great. Easily accessible, walk in shower, good beds, and a nice outdoor seating area.

Our hosts left us a lovely welcome package of food and drink to get us started. Kitchen well appointed with everything except ice trays. Management only a call or email away.

How is a 4 min walk from the beach, 15 min drive to Old San Juan. Secure parking on property. 3 min walk to bus line. 5 minutes from restaurants and nightlife of Condado.

Would definitely stay again.

Great! Loved Villa Serena

  • 5 of 5

We weren’t originally planning to stay at Villa Serena, we were supposed to head to the west coast. However, due to some changes we needed a place to stay in a pinch and Marco Polo staff helped us out by arranging my family’s stay here. The Villa is beautiful and is conveniently located to everything, we were able to get to Isla Verde in minutes and Viejo San Juan in 10-15 minutes with traffic. We also traveled to Playa Los Tubos and Cueva La Ventana from here (only a 1-1 1/2 hr drive) and when it came time to head to the airport it was only 8 mins away. The property was immaculate, the rooms were comfortable and spacious and enjoyed the terrace in the evenings. The staff was attentive and when we had a minor issue they arrived in minutes to address it. When we visit San Juan again as a family we will be returning to Villa Serena without a doubt.

Hidden Gem in PR!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental was certainly a hidden gem in Puerto Rico. My friends and I (8 adults) stayed here for the weekend and had a great time! The pictures don't do this house justice. The place was clean and very spacious. We never felt on top of each other, there was more than enough room. The local area was easy to navigate. I would definitely stay here again in the future, and highly recommend this property. The check-in and check-out process was seamless and the property managers were always just a phone call away.

Nice stay and convinient

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed this house for one week and everybody really like it. We care about AC and it did work well for each of three bedrooms. It is one block away from beach and grocery store. Staffs are very nice. The only issue we had was the Marco Polo Collection system. I had hard time to pay through their collection system which is through PayPal. I have a personal PayPal account which I never really use it. PayPal needs my SSN and birthdate for validation which I refused to do so. I never give my personal IDs to a private company, period. As a result, I can only have limited usage of PayPal service which I do not care. Even though to use their collection system no need to have PayPal account, in reality PayPal does check against its existing user's profile. I guess the owner John cannot do much about it. Overall my family had a good experience with the stay.
