About Mariano Rossi

I am an Economist that has been working in the telecommunications industry for the last 15 years. I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina but the company where I work since I graduated gave me the opportunity to live in many places such as the United States and Italy. I resided in Rome 4 years before I was transferred to Puerto Rico. The beauty of the island captivated us so much that we decided to move forward and get this gorgeous house just steps from the best beach in San Juan. My wife Valeria, journalist and professional photographer, has a magic eye on design and great taste. Along with the experience of living in the most ancient city of the western hemisphere, we decided to upgrade and remodel the house while keeping almost intact the historic style of the residence. We are pleased to offer this gorgeous house for our VRBO & Home Away guests. We will be delighted to welcome you to enjoy our magic place in the center of San Juan, just steps from the beach.

Mariano Rossi purchased this house in 2010

Beautiful Property, upscale neighborhood, perfect

  • 5 of 5

Mariano was the perfect host. We rented this property for nearly a year and had zero issues. The gated neighborhood is beautiful and the ocean and beach are less than a minute away walking. The house has a wonderful home like feel with plenty of yard and open areas to take in the ocean breeze. The pool is spacious and inviting. I will return to this property every time I come to Puerto Rico, it’s location is perfect for shopping, eating and walking. Very nice gated community with security.

My home away from home

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about this house that I did not say the first time I stayed here last year. Yes, this is my second time staying at Mariano's house and I could asure you it will not be our last. Believe it or not I own a one bedroom apartment in the condado area. I am a Puerto Rican raised and born in NYC. I always wanted to have a place in PR. Unfortunately I was not able to purchase a place that accommodates nine of us. And this is how I found Mariano's place. My family and I started taking an annual vacation together. There are seven adults and two children. Not only did this house accommodate all of us we did not feel on top of each other and had space to do our own thing. The house is equipped with everything possible that you will need while you're on vacation. It is beautifully decorated and steps from the beach. Mariano and his wife are beautiful people and were always available when ever I had a concern or question . Yes, this will be our home away from home when all nine of us travel to Puerto Rico . We all loved Mariano's house, again and the kids are excited to plan our trip for next summer.

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Visited PR a couple weeks ago in a group of 10. Mariano was a wonderful host! He checked in periodically throughout our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. The house was beautiful, clean, and had everything we didn't even know we were going to need. It was also actually much closer to the beach than we assumed just from looking at the map, which was great! The location was perfect for us. Overall great experience!

Adsolutely Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Mariano's house was absolutely gorgeous, and Mariano himself went above and beyond all I could have hoped for. To start with the house is huge, the rooms are all very well sized, we were a group of 9 adults and 2 children and we never felt crowded. We cooked most of our meals at the house and even with 5+ people in the kitchen it never felt like we were bumping into each other. The pool is one of the best features of the house, I'm pretty sure that my two children turned into fish while we were there, the youngest wouldn't even get out when it was raining! the house is so close to the beach it is easy to just wander over the the beach and hang out or go for a walk to some of the nice shops near by, there is also plenty of beach toys in the garage.

Mariano was present but definitely not in an intrusive way. The fridge ended going out on the first day of our stay, and he had a replacement fridge there within hours, on the weekend! When it came time for us to check out, our flight wasn't for a few more hours and Mariano provided us with the guest cassita at his house, two houses over, for us to store our luggage and even take showers if we wanted to go to the beach. My husbad ended up leaving his favorite dress shirt hanging in the cassita and Mariano immediately texted me when he found it and had no problem shipping it back to us.

I feel like we made the best possible choice for our vacation, I compared this house to every other house in Puerto Rico that was available and would have enough room for our party and nothing even came close to comparing. The personal touches in this house make you feel at home, not like someone threw furniture in a house like I have experienced in other guest house rentals. The price is also very affordable for the size of the house, if you have the chance to book this house for your vacation don't hesitate, I know if I ever get to go back to Puerto Rico I will definitely stay at Mariano's house.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We searched on VRBO and found this house to have a family vacation with adults and teenagers. There were 9 of us and all of us were comfortable in our accommodations. The two living/family rooms gave enough space for people to do their own thing, and the pool was such a great idea as we used it multiple times each day! The ocean was only a short walk, and Mariano was more than gracious in meeting our needs. It was great to be able to shop in the local store and grill dinner most nights. We did try some of the local cuisine for two special dinners, but enjoyed preparing meals in the kitchen together. Lovely home to relax and enjoy-thanks Mariano!

The Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

I stay here with 5 friends to celebrate my cousin's birthday. The house was amazing. It was steps from the beach and had everything we needed for beach activities including but not limited to paddle boards, kayaks and soccer balls. Mariano was great and he provided great recommendations for restaurants and activities. I can't say thank you enough.
