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.
Two Breakfast Certificates per day included.
The apartment is brand new in the market.

I also have been married since 1984 and have 2 daughters, 4 grandchildren. I quit smoking since 2007 :)
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.
The apartment is beautifully decorated; modern and clean. The outside area is very nice and private. The owners are super nice; friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. Great location with parking! That was awesome. I would not stay anywhere else in San Juan. Very happy.
My husband and I booked the villa for a week while in San Juan on vacation. The home was clean, the owner was wonderful and even gave us ideas for places to see and restaurants to eat at. We also received coupons for food at a local sandwich shop from the owner which made breakfast or lunch easy and cheap. The villa is located close to a market where they also open bars and restaurants at night. That's where we spent most of our nights and it's a short walk there and back. Would recommend to everyone and will come back again!
Great location in vibrant neighborhood within walking distance to several good restaurants. Apartment is small but with the adjoining pool and cabana type area there is more than enough room. Tidy and clean with small kitchen that has microwave and refrigerator. Archie was very helpful and even went out of his way to take me to the grocery store at midnight! Highly recommend.
This was beyond a beautiful location! In fact the house and the wonderful couple Archie and Maritza are immaculate. We checked in and we're graciously greeted by both Archie and Maritza with a quick tour of the premises. We walked to la pacinta and el meson (free breakfast) daily without any hassle or issues. There were zero complaints. Archie texted different activities to try daily and Maritza gave insight on all of the local spots that were a must see and must do. The pool is very private, they only come to take out trash or if you ask a question. This was the perfect getaway. I have recommended this location to friends and when we travel to Puerto Rico we will stay here again. I didn't want to leave! Next time we will stay longer! Thank you Archie and Maritza for a great authentic Puerto Rican vacation experience.
The apartment was very clean and in a great location! The owner was very nice and helpful. Offered to take us to the grocery store the first night!
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.
