Great place and friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the house a lot. Good, quiet location. The owner was very nice and provided a lot of extras for free: milk, cereal, wine, a round of welcome drinks, etc.

Was a good experience.

WE love our home away from home at Kikes!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time staying in PR at the "best beach house in san juan"! My aunt, father and 3 year old son had a wonderful time. Perfect accommodations, plenty of space and a gorgeous outside terrace to have morning coffee. There are toys at the house AS WELL AS toys for the beach, so I didn't have to pack or buy any for the trip. Kike also supplies everything the adults need for the beach-towels, chairs, even sunscreen if you need it! The home is decorated in a lovely, artsy style. Very cozy and so convenient to the beach, to town and its a great morning walk to Kasalta for cappucino! We look forward to returning next year. I can't recommend these accommodations enough!! BOOK IT :)

A unique and wonderful place for a family with kids!

  • 5 of 5

Kike was a wonderful and a generous host. Very responsive to our questions and requests in the weeks leading up to our stay. His place was absolutely perfect for our family of 6! We have 4 children, with the oldest being 10 and the youngest being 7 months old at the time of our visit, and all of them were entertained with toys, books and activities that were at the house. We also felt like it was truly a home away from home - there is art on the walls, the place is nicely decorated, has comfy furniture, a beautiful patio, a grill, and the kitchen is stocked with just about everything you need to get cooking. It also feels very safe, and the neighborhood is very quiet. There is a large playground in the Barbosa Park within 3 minutes walking distance. We did not have a car, but Kike recommended a taxi driver who was always available to pick us up and bring us whenever we needed to go. The Old town is about 15 minutes away by taxi, maybe less w/o traffic. There were several stretches of beach that we could walk to right from the house, ranging from a 3 minute walk (slightly east of the property), to 20 minutes (a bit west, past the 'local' beach, through the gated neighborhood). The latter, even though a bit further away, was our favorite, and a block away from the famous 'Kasalta' bakery (with wonderful breakfasts, lunches and pastries!) We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is traveling with children, and to those who want to be away from the busy hotel area. We're already planning our next trip, and will definitely stay here again!

Live like a Puerto Rican

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this place for 1 week. Kike is a generous host who checked in on us to ensure we were comfortable. The condo is in a very nice safe neighborhood 1 block from the beach. Equipped with everything you need. Each morning we sat on the terrace to have coffee and watch the runners and families go by. This place is away from the tourist and crowded hotel areas. You'll feel like a local staying here.

Repeat Visitor

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay at the Toro's place was just my wife and I and it was lovely. This time we took our daughter and my mother-in-law. It was a wonderful trip. My mother-in-law took one bedroom, my wife and I took another bedroom, and our daughter slept on the pull out futon. There was more than enough room for all of us.

The kitchen was well stocked and we only had to go shopping for our own particular comfort foods. There is also a great hole in the wall dive chicken shack named Randy's not too far away that does take out.

That time of year it rains a lot in the afternoon (still 80 deg), so if you want to hit the beach, do it in the morning.

We love the Toro place and will continue to go back there when we are in Puerto Rico.
