Excellent time!

My friends and I had a fantastic time. Alex was very helpful and couldn't have been a nicer more accommodating host. The place was awesome and we had no complaints! We would definitely come back to stay here!

Great spot for a large group of friends.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a group of 9 friends. Alex was nice enough to move an extra futon into the living area to accommodate our group.

House is in a good area and well set up. Rooms are big enough, beds are comfy enough and the pool and pool table are nice in the back yard.

Never felt unsafe or sketched out. It's about a 3 minute walk to a nice beach that wasn't too crowded (although we were there in the middle of the week).

Easy to get an Uber to and from the house, despite the gated community. The Uber's seem used to dealing with it. Old San Juan was great, as was la placita.

We could never get the one shower in the front right room to work so we just took baths there, but not a big issue as there are enough bathrooms in the rest of the house and the water was hot so it didn't bother us.

Owner's Response: I'm happy to know you had a good time and were comfortable even having a group bigger than the maximum capacity for that apartment. It was a good thing to move the futon and now is there for future guests. It is a safe area to stay in the City of San Juan. The beach is the locals favorite and the best for Kite Surfing and beach paddle. Uber is always around and usually gets in really fast. The water issue at the bathroom got repaired, it had a trick to it but now is working 100% Hope to have you back at the island soon thanks alex

Great Location - space needs some love, bring your ear plugs

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I (late 30's, married couples) enjoyed our stay and the property manager, Alex was very responsive and accommodating to everything we asked of him. The apartment was clean and when we needed extra towels, they were quick to respond. This is the place to stay if you're interested in the beach - it is so close (2 min walk) and there is even a bar right at the beach entrance if you're looking for a drink or snack while you lounge. Alex brought us over lots of beach chairs and a cooler full of ice, which came in very handy. You can also easily walk to great restaurants, bars, Walgreens, etc. The neighborhood felt safe.

This isn't a place to stay if you're looking for peace and quiet - the neighboring apartments can be noisy if noisy people are staying in them, which we found to be the case a few of the nights of our stay. We had to confront the neighbors to keep it down about 3 and 4am and since we share the pool area with them it made an uncomfortable situation for the following days. There is also a prompt 7am dog that barks every morning :0

The apartment could use a weekend of maintenance and a cozier lighting situation. The main shower doesn't drain well, there was a pretty good leak in the bedroom ceiling, the freezer doesn't close all the way... It took a little creativity to cook a meal, the oven was not operating and we couldn't find a pot to boil water in.

Owner's Response: We always try to make you stay as good as possible and always close by to give you support in any way. Definitely, his is the place to stay if you're interested in the beach - I always try to leave a cooler full of ice so you can head up to the beach with drinks as soon as you arrive. A lot of good restaurants are walking distance and every month there's more and more new ones starting up because it is a very popular area for vacations. Very safe neighborhood with security 24-7. There's suppose to be quiet and relax place to stay so if encountered with noise groups please let me know and I'll take care of it. Lighting situation got enhanced with new lights, the main shower drain was repair by the plumber (it got too much sand from the previous guests) the leak in the bedroom ceiling got repair as well as the freezer door, the oven is not functioning as is not included in the appliances at the website description but we do have a smaller counter top oven that can be used but for smaller cooking arrangements. New pots and pans were bought. Thanks for staying with us it was nice meeting you all and thanks for all the tips, we took care of all of them (except the dog...) alex
