Great stay in San Juan

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Villa Serena. Communication with Annette has been great and we felt very welcome when we arrived - food and drinks were waiting for us. The Villa itself is very comfortable for a large family. I do have to agree with other reviewers about the neighborhood where the villa is located (we did not really feel like walking around the neighborhood after dark though at no time did we feel unsafe) and the situation with the keys but overall I would recommend Villa Serena to everybody.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and roomy property in Ocean Park, and so close to the beach. The beds are comfortable, the walk-in shower is nice, and the deck is lovely. Good restaurants close by, such as Inca Chicken, Kasalta, Pirino, and Acapulco Taqueria. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the place was clean.

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.
