The perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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! Best Regards, Alex

Great value!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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! Thanks Alex

Great value

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Alex. Our stay was absolutely awesome. Alex met us when we arrived, then followed up to see if we needed anything. The place was clean, loved the pool table, and the pool. Great having a wash machine and dryer there. All amenities in neighborhood, nice restaurants, Walgreens. The beach was close by and very nice. The neighborhood was safe and picturesque.

I recommend staying there anytime.

Owner's Response: Thanks to you my friend! I try to be on call all the time eventhough I have two other jobs to take care of, is nice to meet my guests and make suggestions before they start enjoying their vacations. I live within 2 minutes drive so I can help in case anything breaks. We try to keep the apartment very clean and paint every other month to have it looking like new (even to the fact that is an old house) The spot of the beach near the house is one of the best of all Ocean Park. The gated community and the 24/7 security makes the neighborhood safer than other streets in the area. Hope to see you soon David! Thanks, Alex

Awesome Location and Great Way To Experience San Juan

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Alex's place! He was incredibly helpful throughout the planning process; He helped us with recommendations and even went above and beyond with helping us book different events in San Juan. I can't say enough about him as a host, he was great. The apartment was just as pictured so what you see is what you get, there are no surprises which is great. It's not a 5 star hotel but it was perfect for our needs. We felt very safe within the gates at night and outside of the gates in the day time. The only thing I would recommend is making sure you rent a car or can use your phone if you are going to want a cab right away. Usually you can catch one if you wait a little while outside the community but if you want a ride right away I'd recommend renting a car or making sure you can call a cab from your phone. The parking area was great if you do rent a car. The apartment was equipped with everything we needed for cooking, sleeping, and the beach. Alex has thought of everything. I would definitely rent from him again and highly recommend him as a host.

Owner's Response: Sorry for the delay in responding to your review, I greatly appreciate your comments on my behavior as a host (Is fun helping my guest enjoy their stay - it makes me want to go out and enjoy like I'm on vacations as well) It was a pleasure having you over as our guests! It is a very safe area within the gates at night and at daytime, it is a very nice area within Ocean Park. I hope to see you soon my friends, next time stay longer so you can adventure outside the Metro Area Thanks, Alex
