Nice house and location
Overall nice house with a lot of room. We had 11 people and each couple/person had their own bed(s). There is one bedroom downstairs which made it nice for our parents who are in their early 80s. It was clean and Karen the owner helped up arrange an in house chef for one evening which was wonderful. They set up, prepared the food and provided clean up. We had a few issues with one of 3 washing machines/dryers and the dishwasher machine, but her husband, Pablo, came out quickly and took a look. Pool was usable although small, but great if you have small kids. There were bikes but we did not use them. Location great in that you could walk to the beach which was a few blocks away and you could walk to many very good restaurants. Mario Pagan was our favorite restaurant which was right around the corner from the house. We did not get to stop by the lagoon but that was one block away. Short drive to old San Juan and the Marina. We had rented 2 mini vans and they both fit comfortably in the driveway. Lot of air conditioners.
The only downsides that I can think of--although large house-- not a big open floor plan. I will say that the outside area was beautiful and would be a great open gathering place but we did not spend much time out there. There were no lights in the bathroom near the vanities and cable was a bit spotty. Only one roll of toilet paper per bathroom. Seemed when we all took a shower at same time that we ran out of hot water and pressure went down a bit. A couple good family gathering places inside, but again not "open concept." These are "minor" issues but things people may be interested in knowing.
Felt very safe. We would recommend the property to anyone. We enjoyed our stay. Again, Karen and Her husband were wonderful and attended to our needs very quickly and their house is beautiful.
The beautiful courtyard really made the stay. No complaints about this place. Great location!
Awesome house and wonderful owner
Me and my family traveled to Puerto Rico due to unfortunate circumstances, but had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful house. We had six different sets of couples stay that range from single to siblings, married couples to couples with kids. We all fit comfortably and had space to communion as a family, along with space to have alone time. The home I believe sleeps up to 22 which could be done, we were 14 people deep. The owner was just as amazing, she greeted us warmly and answered any questions we might have had. The house is close to the beach, shops and food. Walmart and Walgreens was around the corner. We were able to fit two minivans and 3 cars in the drive way, when family came to visit. The neighborhood was quite and safe! The only feedback from some family members was more toilet tissue, but if that’s the only concern then that makes me happy 😀. The house was vintage with modern twist, so it would fit anybody’s style. My cousin is seriously considering renting the house again later this year for her 50th, so this should say a lot about the house and the owner. Thank you again for letting us stay in your lovely home to have my family!
