This is one of the best ways to enjoy and explore this beautiful Caribbean island. The apartment is gorgeous, it is comfortable, with access to the pool at your door steps and free parking and it is nested in the heart of the metro-urban and tourist hanging around areas of San Juan,“la Placita de Santurce”. Very few blocks away you will find fine Bars, Restaurants and Museums, and within 1-5 miles, the Condado beach and the wonderful surroundings that will remind you constantly that you are vacationing in Puerto Rico. At Condado lagoon you can rent paddle boats and paddle boards.
The apartment is brand new in the market.

Archie Arjona purchased this apartment in 2004
I love the area, the neighbors, the exit to PR22 is 75 meters away, I can walk to banks, farmers market, bars, restaurants, Cinema, art museums, bus stops, hospitals and the Condado area including the beach.
After any activity during the day you can deep into the fresh waters of the pool which is 4 feets away from your front door.
We were very happy with this rental property. It was in a nice neighborhood within walking distance of many restaurants. The garage parking spot is very convenient, right next to the apartment. The interior of the apartment and the outdoor space were beautifully decorated. There were some Peter Roth Thomas toiletries set out in the bathroom and bug spray in the closet, which was very thoughtful.
A couple of things to note: the pool wasn't heated and I don't think it's private. That being said, we didn't see anyone else in the pool the entire time we were there. If you're walking towards La Placita you'll feel completely safe, but we walked on Av. Ponce de Leon one night and it didn't feel quite as safe. I wouldn't go so far as to call it dangerous but it just wasn't as well-populated as La Placita and there were a number of homeless people. If you're walking anywhere other than La Placita or near it I'd probably take the car.
Overall we loved staying at Archie's and would highly recommend it. It was a great deal and it felt like the "real" Puerto Rico, especially compared to the Condado area. It's best for a couple but there is a loft area in the living room where a child could sleep.
The Location is great for feeling as a local and the pictures are perfect for showing how cute the apt really is. The pics are for real and the service is great. Great find! thanks Archie!
Arch is the man! Very understanding and helpful and was always one phone call away, the property looks exactly as advertised and very clean. A private pool made the trip 10x better. It was my girlfriend Birthday weekend and she enjoyed it. I will definitely be back soon. Thank you again Archie
My wife and I attended a wedding in Old San Juan at Casa De Espana and cannot say how happy we were to stay at Archie’s residence as opposed to a hotel. We felt as if we were locals. The residence is exactly as pictured and perfectly located near everything we wanted. We walked to Condado for meals, to el Centro de Bellas Artes to see “Mary Poppins”, and thoroughly enjoyed a few nights of eating and drinking at la Plaza Del Mercardo (literally around the corner). A short cab ride to the San Sebastián Patron Saint Festival in Old San Juan was the icing on the cake. Thanks Archie. We appreciated our stay.
This apartment was definitely above our expectations ! We were 3 young adults renting it and we didn't regret it at all. The location is perfect ,it was like 10 mins walking to condado beach. Also, at some steps you'll have "la placita de santurce" a nice place with nice restaurants and a great nightlife. However , you won't hear anything during the night when you'll be in bed ! The apartment is really beautiful and the hosts are very helpful ! Certainly, I will choose this location once again if I go back to Puerto rico.
Me and my 2 girlfriends got to Condado Sunday January 2nd at around 10AM. Even though normal check in time is 3PM, Archie kindly allowed us to come in earlier. The apartment is very well furnished, has a kitchennete and a private pool. Wirelezs internet is also provided. Archie and his wife Marissa were very welcoming and helpful and gave us a couple of suggestions of what to do and visit. The beach of Condado was 10 minutes walking distance and la Placita was 2 streets away! Pa Placita is the local bar and disco area and is pretty packed all the time. We really enjoyed our stay and appreciated our hosts! If ever you go to Condado, I highly recommend this place.
