Great place to stay for the family

  • 5 of 5

Here are my thoughts:

1. Communication was excellent. Annette was great with corresponding with me about all aspects.

2. Beds were comfortable. That is a big thing for me and this place met the requirement.

3. Basic food staples was an extremely nice touch and were appreciated. There was also enough dishes and food preparation stuff (pots/pans/knives, etc), which we use (one of the benefits of renting a VRBO!)

4. Good grocery store is in walking distance.

5. Internet, and therefore WiFi is still not working, but that is a result of the hurricane and nothing can be done about that. Electricity and water was not an issue.

6. The shower off the master bedroom needs some real TLC. You have to mess with it at length to find the right temperature between freezing and scalding. The handle needs some maintenance and/or replacement. The hot water also took 10 minutes of water running to make it to just that shower. A new shower curtain in here would be a worthwhile investment too.

7. Putting some of those rubber colored key rings around the keys or having keys made with those fun key blanks would go a LONG way to making it easier to navigate the half dozen keys or so you need to get in and out (front gate, front door, driveway gate, etc)

8. DVD player with a good selection of DVDs was nice and enjoyed.

9. AC worked well.

10. We would definitely stay here again!!

Hurricane Maria weeks before our trip so we were unable to go.

  • 5 of 5

Sadly the hurricane ruined our chance to go. Our thoughts and prayers are with Puerto Rico. John tried his best to stay in contact despite no Elenor WiFi on the island. We hope that Puerto Rico recovers quickly and tourism along with it. Puerto Rico se levanta.

Beautiful house located minutes from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Overall, the house was a perfect fit! The staff was on standby ready to accommodate at anytime of the day. We lot of time was spent in the sunroom listening to Coqui's! Located minutes from the beach. There is a lot of good restaurants located 1000 feet away. The beach is literally around the corner! Nothing is out of reach from here. 10 mins to the airport. This is my residents wheh I return. Highly reccomeded.

Lots of Space...Minor Issues

  • 3 of 5

The property was quite spacious- no disappointments there. However, there are a few leaks in the roof, water pressure is poor, you can only use water from one source at a time---2 showers but can only use one at a time. Electricity went out a couple times. A/C in bedroom went out--not a fuse issue--might have been rain related but it was only the A/C in the bedroom. There is a cat on the premises that bit my nephew as well.

Close to beach; nice & quiet neighborhood, comfort

  • 5 of 5

Villa Sirena is a gem of a home, only a block & a half from the gorgeous Caribbean ocean. I will definitely stay here again next time I visit San Juan! It was fully stocked, and the beds and furniture and fans and air conditioning are very comfortable. The kitchen is charming and modern and has everything you need. The layout of the home has both indoor and outdoor dining and lounging areas which make it comfortable for all. I travelled with my elderly, disabled father, and the management was very responsive and helpful in terms of measuring doorways so I could determine whether my father's wheel chair could fit through the main bathroom doorway. The house was completely wheelchair accessible! The location, accommodations, and character of this home make it very special.

Great stay in San Juan

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Villa Serena. Communication with Annette has been great and we felt very welcome when we arrived - food and drinks were waiting for us. The Villa itself is very comfortable for a large family. I do have to agree with other reviewers about the neighborhood where the villa is located (we did not really feel like walking around the neighborhood after dark though at no time did we feel unsafe) and the situation with the keys but overall I would recommend Villa Serena to everybody.
