Excellent stay! Couples will not regret it!
So many good things to say in so little time! This studio apartment was an enjoyable experience. Ralph and his wife are lovely people. Upon arrival, they gave my fiancée and me the keys and explained a few things about the apartment. We stayed for five days, and if I had a question about ANYTHING, Ralph was only a text or phone call away.
First, the studio apartment is beautiful. It is very historical. If you want to live like a native, this is the apartment for you. The home is huge! However, our apartment was in a secluded area in the back of the house. The apartment is extremely clean and small. Only 4 TV channels. This was a romantic vacation, so we didn’t care. You have access to a huge private and serene patio! I don't think that they posted the photo online, but the patio is GOREGOUS!!!!! We ate outside day and night.
You will need to bring all of your own personal items, as expected. If you forget something, there is a Walgreen and Puerto Rico pharmacy about a block away. Ralph provided some bath towels, glasses, plates, cleaning supplies, etc……….. but you will need to bring more if you plan on staying for longer than 2 or 3 days.
The apartment is located in an extremely quiet section of Old San Juan. We were close to all of the activities and stores, but we didn’t have to hear the loud music and people at night. It is a very safe area. There is a video camera on the property. In addition, there are two locks on the door. I didn’t feel scared walking around at night. I didn’t rent a car. I just used the free trolley and taxies. However, if you have a car, parking will be difficult from my observation.
Lastly, my only complaint is that the apartment can get extremely hot. This is an eco-friendly building without an air-conditioning system that I am used to. BUT, do not let this deter you from renting this lovely studio apartment. There are two ceiling fans, and when you open the doors it gets really cool. Also, the air conditioner gets cool, but not freezing cold. You just need a small fan. It is not anything major, but I did need to mention it.
The location is perfect. I loved Old San Juan, and this apartment. The apartment is EXTREMELY affordable, and you won’t regret renting it. I left the apartment today, and I miss it. It felt like my home for a few days. This is a great place for a couple! It was very romantic, and I will remember it forever. I would recommend it to anyone who want the real Puerto Rico experience.
Owner's Response: Well, We do stock the supplies for whatever time the gust will stay per experience. If gust needs anything els ,all they need to do is call and we will supply except being a short term arrangement ,guests are expected to purchase the personal items they need. The A/C has a remote control where you can choose the temperature down to very cold and it is a matter of setting. Satellite TV tunes to over 100 channels and again it is a matter uf navigating the remote control.
And of course,manager is available 24/7 to address any needs the guest may have or answer any questions . Although the Studio is for 2 guests we supply all the plates,glasses etc for 4 people. There is a kitchen sink with Hot and Cold water so that guest may wash plates ,utensils etc. as in their own home. We can also provide maid service at extra cost.
Our goal is to always satisfy the guests needs.
