About the property

Studio apartment close to the beach and tourist attractions

This apartment has been fully remodeled and totally refurnished with custom made entertainment center, kitchen and closet. The Jazzy and Blues Studio has everything you will need. Just bring your clothes and toothbrush! A convenient check-in time at 3:00pm o'clock and the check out at 11:00am. It has a full functional kitchen so you can cook with the local flavors, but if you are not in the mood, there are plenty of great restaurants around. You can also take a walk to the beach, to the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico (Art Museum) to appreciate local and international art, Centro de Bellas Artes (Fine Arts Performing Center) to enjoy a concert by the symphony orchestra, pop concerts and dramas, or simply to enjoy the thriving local atmosphere. By taxi, bus or car (yes, we have free parking) you easily get to the world famous Old San Juan and all of its attractions. Located on the 8th floor of the Balmoral condo, you can have the warm tropical breeze or just turn on the air conditioner to cool down. You will be near the main highways that cross and surround the Island, so you can plan to go anywhere. When you are in, enjoy HDTV set with cable channels, DVDs, CDs and books for your leisure time. There is also a desk if you need to do some office work, or just to write postcards. Super comfortable queen size bed with extra bedding (two air mattresses available upon request) for the rest of your family. Wi-fi ready.

About Julio and Annie Gonzalez

I'm an ordained Baptist Pastor living in Long Island, NY. My wife, Annie, is also a Minister. I'm also a professional musician and art lover. In 2014, we relocated from Puerto Rico with our four-paw children Jazzy and Blues. My oldest daughter moved with us and the youngest stayed in the Island attending college.

Julio and Annie Gonzalez purchased this studio in 1997

Why Julio and Annie Gonzalez chose San Juan

This studio apartment was bought by my mother because she was born and grew up in this area and she was willing to go back to the advantages that this neighborhood has to offer. I lived here for a while when it was purchased and can testify of the good thing that is living here. When she died few years ago, I decided to fully remodel it and make it a wonderful space to share. The movies, CDs and books that we feature in the apartment are part of my mother's collection, so feel free to enjoy during your stay.

Clean, great location

  • 5 of 5

Literally just unpacked from staying at this amazing apartment! I will advise you to eat downstairs at their building restaurant if you want good breakfast and or lunch. Be is actually the way has great lunch and dinner! The beach is a 3 min walk! The funky Buddha is a nice 3 min walk if you want to hear some good music! Be sure to visit old San Juan!! Have fun ! Will be staying here again.

Great location with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We ducked into San Juan for a long weekend, and this was perfect! The studio is nice, clean and has all of the amenities you would expect, as well as a secure parking space.

The studio is centrally located within walking distance to the beach, shops, restaurants and supermarkets. If you know anything about San Juan, you can spend a lot of time in traffic, so being able to walk makes it so much easier. We have been looking for a go-to spot to stay when we come to PR, and now it seems like we have found one!

Nice place for a couple!

  • 4 of 5

Mr Schwartz (property manager) was there when we arrived and explained everything to us. Said that we could contact him if we had any questions. The apartment is in an older building but it has been nicely remodeled. Gated parking for our rental car was nice. It is only a a couple blocks from the ocean. Grocery store a block away. A lot of restaurants within walking distance. Nice and quiet as it is the end apartment so there isn't anybody on three sides of you. Small, but ideal if you are going to be gone all day exploring. Would definitely recommend it for couples! Thank you and hope to be back again!

Fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I stayed here on a long weekend trip and could not have been happier! The apartment was spotless, comfortable, and in an amazing location -- easy access to Old San Juan, Condado, Ocean Park and Santurce. Bonus: there's a great cafe on the ground floor of the building that serves a tasty brunch. Would definitely stay here again -- thanks for making our trip so lovely!

Great stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and had everything you need to make your stay confortable. The studio has a lot books, movies and cable/internet for when you are not venturing into San Juan.

There are many restaurants, a supermarket and the beach, all within walking distance. The manager was nice, he received us and showed us around the studio, parking area, laundry, etc. We had a great stay!
