About Mariano Rossi
I am an Economist that has been working in the telecommunications industry for the last 15 years. I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina but the company where I work since I graduated gave me the opportunity to live in many places such as the United States and Italy. I resided in Rome 4 years before I was transferred to Puerto Rico. The beauty of the island captivated us so much that we decided to move forward and get this gorgeous house just steps from the best beach in San Juan. My wife Valeria, journalist and professional photographer, has a magic eye on design and great taste. Along with the experience of living in the most ancient city of the western hemisphere, we decided to upgrade and remodel the house while keeping almost intact the historic style of the residence. We are pleased to offer this gorgeous house for our VRBO & Home Away guests. We will be delighted to welcome you to enjoy our magic place in the center of San Juan, just steps from the beach.

Wonderful house with a terrific owner
I can’t say enough good things about this property. It is spacious and beautiful with every amenity you would need. If you want to go to the beach the house comes with multiple beach towels, multiple Tommy Bahama chairs, a battery powered blue tooth boom box, a Tommy Bahama beach umbrella, different sized coolers, boogie boards, stand up
paddle boards and a wagon to carry them all in. If you want to grill or cook in everything you need is on the property including a great outdoor dining table. The rooms are all well equipped and the house and yard have many spots to read a book or relax and have a conversation. There is a ping pong table with multiple paddles and extra balls. No detail is overlooked.
The best part of the house, though, is the owner. Mariano could not be nicer or more helpful. We had a problem with the gate leading to the driveway and he was there to help within a minute (he lives two doors away). If you are trying to decide where to go or what to see he will give great advice. He referred us to his friend Sergio who was a huge help. He advised on what sights to see and if you need to book a tour he will do it for you at no extra cost and he knows exactly which tours to take. He can help you pick out restaurants and he will make you reservations. He helped my son and I decide where to golf and his advice was spot on.
We’ve rented many houses from many people over the years but I’ve never rented from anyone as helpful as Mariano. He really wants to make sure you have a great time and his efforts clearly show through.
Could not have been better
After reading the reviews for this property I had pretty high expectations and, even though I am pretty picky, they were exceeded! To begin with, the photos don't do it justice. We were 5 adults and two children and there was plenty of room for everyone. We didn't even use the bedroom out by the pool. It was also very clean. This property was just perfect in offering a very peaceful location that is indeed very close to the beach but it was in a real neighborhood. There are bakeries, restaurants, a Walgreens, and other businesses within easy walking distance. A 24 hour Super Max (large grocery store) and a Liv Fitness gym are within a 15-20 minute walk. Of course you can park at the Super Max, but I am not sure how that would work for the gym. Old San Juan is also close and the house served as a great starting point for day trips to the Arecibo Observatory, the El Yunque rainforest, and the bioluminescent bay in Fajardo. However, the thing that really made the experiencew special was the owner and manager of the property, Mariano Rossi. He trult is always available should any little glitch arise and has a lot of good suggestions for things to do and restaurants to try. He can also connect you with someone who can facilitate arrangements for tours to various parts of the island. The house is wonderful, but it is working with Mariano that makes us want to return - and hopefully we will!
The PERFECT VACATION home!
The house is beautiful, well kept and in the best location. It is fully equipped with EVERY item you’d want on vacation. All you need to bring is your clothes and sundries. The pool, backyard deck and front porch seating areas are wonderful for enjoying the day. 9 adults fit very comfortably. This home has 5 bedrooms (including den) and 4 full baths. It was perfect. Very safe neighborhood. Close to the beach is accurate. We’re talking 3 houses. Two very convenient restaurants nearby on the beach. Access to local (a couple blocks) restaurants “Kasalta Bakery!” is convenient, Walgreens is around the corner and a short walk (1-2 miles) to the Condado area for larger restaurants, hotels, casino and supermarket. Mariano is the most gracious host and is available for any assistance. Uber works very well and is more reasonable than taxi. Airport is a 15 minute ride. Old San Juan is 20 minutes.Enterprise Rent A Car is close by for any rental needs. I am ready to go back. IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST VACATION SPOTS EVER. I’m ready to go back.
I felt at home from the moment I walked in. Very clean, efficient, and comfortable. The most amazing part is how close Mariano is when you need something, like my issue with the keys, solved in minutes.
Never so a bug any where...
We loved it. ... I am coming back, next year.
Thank you Mariano. Thank you.
Spring break stay
This is our 3rd stay in this wonderful house. First trip since Hurricane Maria. The house looks the same as before and met all of our needs again. Owner really has done a great job on the upkeep since Maria. The kids loved the pool and the beach. I loved the location and all the space we had. Beds are comfortable. House is spotless. Already planning another trip here.
This was my first VRBO experience and I was NOT disappointed.
This home is in a perfect location and perfect for a family- we were 7 in all.
The lay out of the home assures some privacy for all. It was very clean and had everything we needed.
The beach- which is beautiful-is literally around the corner. It was wonderful to have a lovely salt water pool to return to.
Our host- Marianno- was very gracious both before we arrived and during out stay. He was available to answer any questions.
I would definitely return to San Juan and to this home.
Ocean Park is a safe gated beach community in Condado, San Juan Metro area. Is the best place to stay while visiting Puerto Rico. Within a two blocks walking distance you have many grocery stores such as Walgreens, a famous bakery named Kasalta, many restaurants, surf shops and a great yoga studio. At night, Ocean Park is a quiet neighborhood, where you can walk, skate or bike on the streets full of trees and the breeze coming from the beach.
