Crazy nice 👍
Alex was beyond accommodating! Place was impeccable he actually was there Saturday trimming bushes mind you the area was hammered September 20th by Maria hurricane. I have two sons in business and they were out of business for 2 weeks. An incredible come back by Alex.
The property is well maintained we use Home Away down here a lot. Alex is very involved amazing individual. Location is great food restaurants within walking distance from the property. Clean and everything worked out well. Can’t give him more acalods. Got Bodeguita amazing food for dinner and breakfast is over the top must go!!!!
It was a great experience meeting you and your beautiful family. Is a rewarding feeling to receive your review and comments and also peace of mind.
This was the first rental after many months of restructuring, remodeling, struggling and getting back to business after the hurricane hit last September, the house was literally under water (30") for 11 days straight. We were able to change all the appliances, furniture, doors, paint and more. It was hard work to put the place back to an impeccable status but we made it and I'm proud to say that now is even better than before. We work hard every week to have the property well maintained and that drive is paying off, thanks!
The area is very nice, safe and already back to normal.
Definitely looking forward for your next visit!
See you all soon
Thank you very much,
Alex & Leslie
Amazing Place!!! Best possible area to stay in the San Juan Area
Loved the apartment, fully equipped and everything walking distance. Beautiful beach with a cute beach bar and very safe neighborhood. Will stay again next time around!
I'm happy you loved the apartment and that you found everything you were looking for walking distance.
Is really a beautiful beach and the one most locals and visitors like to hang out at.
Great location in a very safe neighborhood.
Look forward for seeing you all next time around
Great area! Best Place!
Loved the community, close to great restaurants and just a short ride to the best areas in San Juan.
The perfect stay
I could not have found a better place to stay in the absolute perfect location! Walking distance to all of the great restaurants, shops, and stores. Literally a 2 minute walk to the beach. A great community, very laid back, safe and quite. You are a 5-10 dollar uber ride away from Condado and old San Juan. Alex was the best host possible. As a frequent traveler, he exceeded all of my expectations. The property is greatly maintained, and he always made sure I was good! I stayed on the property for 3 weeks, and I would not change a thing. This was the best bang for my buck. I will be back every year, without a doubt! Thanks again!
Thanks for your feedback!
It is a really perfect location! I lived there for 12 years and still miss it. Is walking distance to great restaurants and every month they're opening new bars and places to eat because it has become a local's and visitor's favorite area to hang out, eat and have fun.
I'm very happy to hear you had a great time, definitely looking forward for your next adventure trip at the Island.
See you soon!
Great location with a really short walk to beach & fantastic restaurants! If you are looking for a good value in a safe quiet neighborhood away from the tourist area and if you don't need glitz & glamor, this is a great VRBO! The Owner was extremely friendly and responsive!
I'm very pleased you had a great time. In the past 2 years there's been a significant increase of new and great local restaurants and bars just walking distance from the house. Is now a favorite location for locals and visitors everywhere without the expensive touch given by hotels in the near by area.
Is fun, is safe and is just perfect to combine with beach, local food and bars. Close to great areas (short drive away of 5-10 minutes) such as Old San Juan, La Placita of Santurce, Isla Verde, Condado and more.
I live 2 minutes away from the house so I'm available 24-7 to help out.
We'll love to have you back soon!
