About Victor Alonso

I'm a property manager and manage several properties in Puerto Rico.

I love to travel and understand how important is to get everything right when you make your travel arrangements. I love when people have a great time and I'll do my best that your vacation or business trip to Puerto Rico would be a "Great One" and unforgettable time that you'll remember for year to come.

Victor Alonso purchased this villa in 2000

Why Victor Alonso chose Rio Grande

I love this property because it offers privacy, resort like facilities, its away from the noise of the city but close enough that if you want to go to San Juan it would only be 30 to 35 minutes driving and if you don't want to drive, you can take a taxi back and for and not worry for driving, getting lost or parking.

This property is very secure and really well kept, the beach is gorgeous and the price is right. We want you to have a great experience and a good deal.

I'm here to facilitate everything for you and your family to insure you have a great time, you referrer us to your friends and family and most important that you come back many times. Perhaps I can even sell you a vacation property and then manage it for you. As you know real estates prices in Puerto Rico are at its lowest and this is the best time to purchase a vacation property and if at the same time this property can generate some income even better. I can stress enough the fact that the time is now. Lots of Americans and Europeans are taking advantages of the amazing opportunities in real estate in Puerto Rico. The island of Puerto Rico is only 35 miles wide by 100 miles long and there is only one Puerto Rico eventually prices are going to be back to normal and that is when you'll be glad you invest now.

Great place in a great location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I have a property on VRBO so we know how important reviews are to both travelers and owners. The booking process was easy. On arrival the key was waiting in a lockbox exactly where Victor told us it would be located. My first impressions of the property were that it was exactly as it was portrayed in the write-up and in the pictures. The unit is on the ground level which is what we wanted as having a balcony with a toddler means I don’t get a vacation. It was plenty roomy for our family of four. The unit was clean with plenty of towels and nice bedding. The bathroom was recently updated and very nice. The shower is large and the water is hot. The beds were comfy. I appreciated the windows that had the option to be completely opened or opened with the louvers for privacy and security. I had no security concerns as the apartment complex is entered through a substantial metal gate and the door to the apartment had a deadbolt. Many of the other residents in the complex had their windows and front doors wide open most of the time! We didn’t use the kitchen beyond storing items in the refrigerator but everything looked fine. Some of the metal appliances had rust on the outside which is what happens in a tropical climate. There is no dishwasher so if you plan on making many meals in the unit be ready to wash by hand. Some of our luggage didn’t arrive for two days which made the washer and dryer invaluable. We only used the A/C at bedtime. It reduced the humidity and cooled the unit down quickly. If I had to find one thing to modify, I would add a floor lamp in the living room or move one from the bedroom into the living room. All in all I would recommend the #250 Calle San Sebastian to anyone and would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Dear Renters Thank you so much for this formidable review. We do put a lot of effort and thought in preparing all of our apartments, we are travelers as well and we know how important some items are when ones travels; like. washer and dryer, iron and board, a toaster and coffee maker. These are simple things that make a big difference. We love when people have a great time and know how to appreciate the beauty and tranquility of Old San Juan. It's all about to relax and go with the flow, most Old San Juan residents are professionals, some very wealthy people but in Old San Juan everybody is the same. All you see are shorts, sandals and people enjoying themselves, eating great food and of course drinking mojitos or rum. San Sebastian #250 is the perfect location to wonder around Old San Juan and been walking distance from the best restaurants and pubs in town. Thank you for the opportunity to share with you this magical place and let us know when are we going to see you back again. It's people like you that make us do what we do. Much oblige for this review. See you soon.

Authentic Old San Juan

  • 2 of 5

This apartment is in a quiet and safe residential neighborhood, a block away from great Atlantic views. You enter a private cobbled courtyard to get to your door, and all windows face courtyards. It's a short walk to everything in Old San Juan; forts, museums, restaurants, shops, cafes, plazas, supermarkets, cruise piers, ferries. etc. It takes a little longer walking back from the harbor since it's uphill. The apartment is large, the art is fun, the shower is great and the washer/dryer are useful. But the whole apartment smelled musty to us, especially the bedrooms. We wouldn't choose to stay here again unless it was aired out more.

Simple and efficient and GREAT location!

  • 5 of 5

Would like to thank Victor for being extremely helpful renting this place and even having an extra night a few days later just before getting our flight. Regarding the apartement itself, nothing to complain about, it was good size for 5people, full kitchen and bathroom and we all liked the art inside :)

Also a very nice gesture from Victor to greet us with a bottle of wine at arrival and for making it very convenient and arrange a very late check-in.

But the best part is defintely the location, the streets are MAGICAL with the colours and architecture, a few minutes walk from everything although recomment to have a car if you want to go to the beach or you can use taxi.

San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico is the oldest city on US territory (St. Augustine, Florida the oldest city in the continental). Founded in 1521 by Juan Ponce de León, who named it City of Puerto Rico ('Rich Port').

The history of San Juan begins a long time before its official foundation, in 1493, during his second voyage, Christopher Columbus landed in Puerto Rico. He named the island 'San Juan Bautista', in honor of John the Baptist. But was not until 1508, that the Spanish government appointed Juan Ponce de León as the first governor of the island. He founded the original settlement in Caparra, now known as Pueblo Viejo, behind the almost land-locked harbor just to the west of the present metropolitan area and the city quickly became Spain's most important military outpost in the Caribbean.

A year later, the original settlement was relocated to a nearby coastal islet (to the site of what is now called Old San Juan) and named Puerto Rico (Rich Port). Sometime during the 1520s, confusion over the names led to a switch, the island took the name of Puerto Rico and the town became San Juan.

Today, San Juan is known as 'La Ciudad Amurallada' (the walled city) and is one of the biggest and best natural harbors in the Caribbean and is the second oldest European-founded city in the Americas (after Santo Domingo, which was officially founded on August 5, 1498.)

The metropolitan area known as San Juan has 3 distinct areas: Old San Juan, the Beach & Resort area, and other outlying communities, the most important: Río Piedras, Hato Rey, Puerta de Tierra, and Santurce. Río Piedras was founded in 1714 but became incorporated into San Juan in 1951.

During the early 16th century, San Juan was the point of departure of Spanish expeditions to charter or settle unknown parts of the New World. Its fortifications repulsed the English navigator Sir Francis Drake in 1595, as well as later attacks.

In the 20th century the city expanded beyond its walled confines, known as Old San Juan, to incorporate suburban Miramar, Santurce, Condado, Hato Rey and Río Piedras.

San Juan is the largest processing center of the island, the metropolitan area has facilities for petroleum and sugar refining, brewing and distilling and produces cement, pharmaceuticals, metal products clothing, and tobacco. The port is one of the busiest in the Caribbean. San Juan is the country's financial capital, and many U.S. banks and corporations maintain offices or distributing centers there. San Juan is center of Caribbean shipping and is the 2nd largest sea port in the area (after New York City).
