San Mateo Studio Rental Photos and Description

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 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.

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!

Convenience to parking

  • 4 of 5

It was what I was looking: a safe place to park my rental car and the convenience to travel to El Condado, Hato Rey & other parts of San Juan at a reasonable price. It is not a new building. It needs renovations. The studio has been renovated. If you are 1 or 2 persons is perfect. I did not cook at all. The property manager meets you & give you the keys. You get one key for the elevator(8th floor) & two keys to enter the studio. One key opens the studio wrought iron gate & the other the door. You also get a beeper to open the parking gates. There are two places in the building to park the basement & the outdoor level. Both have separate gated entrances but you use the same beeper. I parked most of the time in the basement since I could always find parking at night. There is no assign parking space in the condo. During the day there is a clinic in the same bldg that uses the basement parking & the gates are kept open. Then around 6:00pm it become gated. Free parking is very rare in San Juan. It is not a resort appearance. I will be back. Look for the CLINICA sign to enter the basement parking.

It was everything we needed and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

The studio definitely fulfilled our expectations and it really helped that it was reasonably priced. We felt secure to park the rental car in the lot behind the building and we felt safe and welcomed in the apartment. We wish we had not waited until the last day to try the cafe downstairs because it was excellent - the food, the passion fruit mimosa, and the coffee were all outstanding.

This was our first time in Puerto Rico and we are so glad we stayed here.
