About Carlos and Ruth
Hi, my name is Carlos La Verde born and race in the island but with Colombian roots. I am marry to a beautiful wife and we have a daughter named Aiasofia (named after Ayasofia in Turkey). I work as a financial planner and I am a BJJ practitioner. Love to travel myself and we've been hosting for 8 years now with another property we sold in Isabela but still managing it (property 230786). This is our home and we want to do the same...
Carlos and Ruth purchased this Townhome in 2007
Why Carlos and Ruth chose Santurce
Is kind of unique as it is a Townhome made of exposed cement floors and walls... The property have 4 floors and make it ideal for friends and couples to come as each will have a floor for themselves... and the terrace in the 4th fllor is really the place for gathering after a long day visiting the island. Besides, is my personal residence😀
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The owners were super nice and very accommodating. They were very honest, some money and shoes were left behind and they promptly called and made arrangements for return. Highly recommend this rental.
Perfect Place to “Land” between exploring paradise
We had a group of 4 (2 couples) and this townhouse was just perfect for us. We utilized the rooftop every morning for coffee and every evening for wine and relaxation. The rooftop is where it’s at!! Just perfect to shower off after the beach (outdoor shower, so cool!!). Rooftop is perfection; perfect for sunsets, hanging out, quiet time or fun time- I t’s the highlight of the home in my opinion!
The local, walkable restaurants are all you need! Juice/healthy food just one block away at KAI, perfect for breakfast. Owner is so sweet. Cute bar/restaurant at ONE next to juice stand. Bistro Cafe has amazing breakfast and is just a 5-minute walk from the townhouse. Explore this area and all it has to offer! (But I don’t recommend the seafood restaurant across from ONE haha.)
Plenty of nearby beaches in any direction, though we found Isla Verde to be our favorite, just a 5-minute Uber trip.
Ubers are available from this location within just 1 minute any time of day.
We all slept great in our rooms. The home is perfectly decorated, has all the amenities one could need. (We brought extra towels just in case but there was no need.) Beds and pillows are comfy. TVs in every room, though if you’re spending your time watching TV, you’re doing “vacation” wrong! Police station literally next door and can be seen from master and rooftop. Relatively quiet location considering proximity to neighbors. I’m from Ocean Beach San Diego, lived in similar close quarters with neighbors for years and it was much, much louder there than here! Washer/dryer available- so nice to have. AC throughout, though not always necessary. Little espresso machine on-hand. Full kitchen, but I HIGHLY recommend eating out. Restaurants around town are just amazing (as long as you stay away from Condado where the hotels are, overpriced restaurants and crappy food.)
Carlos was highly attentive and extremely helpful as far as recommendations go. He’s a genuinely lovely person, as are all the people we encountered. I can’t say enough great things about the home, it’s location, the island, and the amazing Puerto Rican people. This was the trip of a lifetime for us all, and having this fabulous place to land between our explorations only enhanced the experience. Stay away from the tourist trap hotels!! Venture to live among locals (and some Americans too) and truly experience Puerto Rico!
Thank you Carlos and Ruth for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home ❤️🇵🇷🌴🌊🌺
Dear Kristina and Friends:
Wao! Thanks for such a detailed and lovely review. Maria hit us very bad and not only us but the island as well. We are open for business and to take care of tourists with enthusiasm and friendship.
Style, comfort and location
Dear Carlos and Ruth,
We chose to stay at your home based on reviews and photos which were wonderful. We hoped that your place would live up to it's online presence. We were so happy when we stepped into the real deal and it was even BETTER than the photos. Enough space so everyone could spread out. We went up to the roofdeck every night to relax. The decor was beautiful and the place was immaculate. Though we had a car for day trips, the location was great for us to walk to the beach, restaurants and grocery store. Carlos was kind enough to give us a neighborhood tour when we arrived, to acclimate us to our surroundings. I can't stop talking about this place to my friends. This was our first time finding a place on HomeAway and it was a great success. Thank you Carlos and Ruth!
Katherine: We are so happy about your experience. We rated you and your family a five star guess as well. Thank you for taking care of our home and for being so considerate... you pay it forward!
Looking forward to receive you again.
We couldn't have been happier with our rental!
3 of my friends and I stayed at this property for 5 days, and we honestly couldn't have been any happier with this location. Once we got to the property to check-in, Carlos (the home owner) drove with us around the house showing us everything we needed to know. He showed us where to eat, shop, the best spots for the beach, etc. It was unexpected and so nice of him. The location is in the perfect spot with so much all around the property. 5 days wasn't enough, there is so much to see and do! The house itself was so clean, with not one speck of dust/dirt anywhere to be seen and the house was looked exactly as the pictures showed. The house was gated, very safe, with a police station directly around the corner. Everything that is listed on the information page is true for all of the amenities and what the property has to offer. A special bonus were the beds. I don't know where they purchased them from, but they were SO unbelievably comfortable! We have not one negative thing to say about our experience and cannot wait to plan another visit back to Puerto Rico! And we would definitely stay at this property time and time again. We just loved it!
Kelly, it was a pleasure having you and your well educated and considerated friends and colleages... Pleae come back to this property or the one in Isabela homeaway 230786...
AMAZING HOME and a GREAT LOCATION
Not sure where to start. From start to finish EVERYTHING was perfect. The house was clean and well taken care of. The residence looks just as good as the pictures. The house was Wonderful! 2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms accommodated everyone well. The rest of the house layout was PERFECT, and the terrace was breathtaking. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking and cleaning.
Carlos checked on us constantly--he was just a phone call away. Carlos added to this feeling by treating us more like friends invited to stay then paying guests. Carlos, gave inside information about good beaches and restaurants and even treated us to a tour of the neighborhood. The vacation rental was reasonably priced and well worth the money. Proximity to everything was ideal including the airport. I would highly recommend it, it is one of the best places I have ever stayed in.
Adrianne, we feel so happy.... Ruth and I were wondering about your experience with the home just a day ago from you writing this review. We were taking about how clean you left the apartment. Did you hired a maid yourself? :-) we even saw new cleaning products. Thanks for your kind words towards our home and us as host (believe some day i may change careear and dedicate myself to hosting!).
Take care, please send my regards to your 3 friends and please comeback next year with your sister. Sincerely, Carlos
Experience the best of the Caribbean!!
First of all, Puerto Rico is the underappreciated gem of the Caribbean. Go see it!! P.R. has it all: colonial Old San Juan, jungles, beaches, surfing, zip-lining, world class museums, incredible dining, coffee plantations, mountains, yoga, rum (!), hiking, mtn biking, casinos, you name it!
Ruth and Carlos have a very impressive property and are quintessential ambassadors for their beloved island! This property is super conveniently located in San Juan. It's within minutes of the airport, about one block to the beautiful beach, a few minutes to Condado, a few more to Old San Juan, and right in the Ocean Park vicinity. It's really perfect for exploring the island.
The house is wonderfully decorated (by Ruth) in an exquisite contemporary/modern fashion. It felt splendid just relaxing on the rooftop terrace! Super clean and every convenience you may desire is there.
You're located very close to all types of dining and entertainment. Carlos is only too happy to point it all out to you. (I think he's secretly employed by the P.R. tourism board!) Do you like seafood, natural food, vegetarian, meat lover, mofongo?? It's all nearby. Do you need recommendations? Just ask Carlos and Ruth! They'll point you to whatever is your preference.
Rent a car! It's super convenient and easy to get around P.R. Go kayaking in the bio-bay in Fajardo. See the art museum in Ponce. Visit the Barcardi distillery. Hike in the only Tropical Rain Forest in the U.S. National Park System. Go deep sea fishing. You can do all of this, conveniently from Carlos and Ruth's place !
If you desire an incredibly comfortable and convenient home base in Puerto Rico with exceptionally gracious and friendly hosts, this is your place!
Dear guest, thanks so much for your review. I concur with you regarding our island: it have everything! As to our home, we really liked that you loved the accomodations as Ruth and I really spend time and efforts in not only provide a super clean home but also provide you with little details that will make the guest feel at home. Please come back next year and thanks for also being a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Guest!
