Amazing place for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from an 8 day stay with Lynne and Eric at the White house by the beach in Ocean Park. It was by far the best family faction we have ever taken and will be our new go-to vacation spot for family vacations.

The house is great. The location is perfect, located just at the end of the street from the beach entrance. You walk out your front door and arrive at the beautiful Ocean Park white sand beach in 2 minutes. Lynne and Eric provide beach towels and beach chairs which make it super convenient. The house is well stocked with everything you need for your stay. We loved having a kitchen that was well stocked to make snacks and cook for the kids. Although we ate out a lot, cooking is easy to do here.

There are several very good restaurants within a few minutes walk from the house. Our favorite was Mango's; you have to try the Seafood Paella when you go there. It was fabulous. Kasalta Bakery is also just a few minutes away and has wonderful treats and breakfast items as well as deli foods such as meats and cheeses. Walgreens is a few blocks away which makes it easy to grab things you need for the whole family.

Lynne helped us set up a ziplining and cave repelling tour for our two older boys, which they loved! She also helped us to book a rainforest tour which was a fun adventure for the whole family, even the baby!

We brought our 19 year old, 8 year old and 8 month old boys and all of them had a blast! Lynne provided a portable crib which came in very handy. We purchased a small folding stroller for walks around town when we went to see Old San Juan as it was easier to navigate the cobblestone streets with that than our large stroller. We left it at the house for others to use when they visit, so if you have a small child, you won't need to bother lugging your large stroller with you. We also purchased a beach umbrella and beach toys and left those for future guests to use with their children at the beach. Ocean Park has a small resort at the beach right where you enter from Elena Street which does rent larger umbrellas and large beach chairs too.

The house, Lynne and Eric and Puerto Rico far exceeded our expectations. No one wanted to leave yesterday and today we have all said how much we miss being there and cannot wait to return.

Lynne and Eric were amazing hosts. We cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed staying there. Puerto Rico is truly magical and allows you to just relax and enjoy life.

we spent a week at the white house in san juan, the location was ideal, by car close to the airport, to old san juan, to the supermarket, to the shopping center, to santurce, to museums. by foot was 2 minutes from a gorgeous beach, from kasalta for morning coffee, from bagu for tasty tapas and a drinks, from loisa street full of night life. the house is perfect for a couple, the owner very pleasant people always willing to help, very attentive. a large terrace the high light of the apartment. i would definitely recommend this place where i have stayed for a happy and relaxing week and i hope one day to be back.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great month in the one-bedroom. The owners, Eric and Lynne, were so kind and helpful. Lynne even had our apartment stocked with some essentials (beer, wine, milk, coffee) when we arrived. It was very clean and had everything we needed. We enjoyed their two dogs, Mickey and Mini. The patio is a perfect place to enjoy meals and just relaxing. Oh yes, the beach was perfect and just a block away. The area is very nice and we felt very safe as we explored Ocean Park. There were also some nice restaurants nearby. We will definitely be going back sometime in the future.

Wonderful hospitality

  • 5 of 5

My husband, college age daughter, and I decided we needed a trip to a warm location for Easter this year. After searching on various sites, Lynne and Eric's apartment looked perfect. We ended up renting both the one bedroom and the studio. It was a perfect setup for the three of us. The beach is just a block away and there was easy access to a wonderful lunch complete with beer, wine and pina coladas at Pamela's restaurant. There were also vendors selling empanadas that smelled wonderful and water, beer and ice cream. Lynne provided us with everything you could need for the beach...except the sun ...but we still enjoyed ourselves. We arrived at the apartment around midnight after flying all day and were so happy to see our fridge was stocked with juice, milk, bread, jam and coffee. Within walking distance are several good restaurants including Bagua and Kasalta bakery. Lynne and her husband were so welcoming and we loved our daily visits from their dogs and cat. The Cocqui frog noises reminded us we were not in a high rise hotel! Their apartments were spotlessly clean, fully equipped and in a great location. I can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you to Lynne and Eric for a wonderful trip.

Owner's Response: It is always a pleasure to serve our guests with a nice place to stay. Puerto Rico is charming and our area is pretty much perfect to begin exploring the area. I am very thankful to know we are doing a good job. Thank you.

Great Rental Good Safe Area

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying with Lynn and her husband near the beach. The beach is easy walking distance (they provide ice chest and chairs). The location was great. Lots of local and touristy type restaurants nearby. The apartment had all the conveniences we expected and needed while we were there. Her two dogs (the greeters) were friendly and totally minded their manners, no problem at all. Easy cab ride to Old San Juan, we paid $15.00 going and $18.00 coming back (so we assumed he included the tip). Loved the safety of the gated community but all close restaurant locations also felt completely at ease. Lynn was very knowledgable and recommend several restaurants. (All great picks.) The locals on the street & beach were friendly and helpful, as well. What a nice place to stay. We would recommend to anyone and would definitely stay again when in San Juan.
