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

A Perfect Week

  • 5 of 5

Our multigenerational group included five adults (ages 30 to 66) and two children (8 and 11), and we all had a wonderful week in this truly gorgeous house--which is, literally, only steps from the beautiful beach! The house is even nicer than it looks in the pictures--spacious, beautifully decorated, and equipped with every convenience. We especially enjoyed the wonderful saltwater pool and the poolside grill, and I loved having coffee on the walled balcony off the master bedroom--blooming bougainvillea, lots of birds, very nice! We made good use of the many pool and beach toys, the bikes, and the fitness equipment. Mariano was extremely helpful in every way--he always responded promptly to e-mails or calls and provided detailed information about how to get around San Juan by taxi (since we opted not to rent a car for most of the week) and where to find groceries and good restaurants in the area. We got great take-out from a Tex-Mex place he recommended our first night and made quite a few trips to Kasalta as well--all delicious! Walgreen's was only a few blocks away for other necessities. We spent one day touring Old San Juan, and one day we rented a car and drove east to El Yunque to see the rainforest, but the rest of the time we just enjoyed the beach and the beautiful house--a perfect week! Thank you, Mariano!

Dream vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Mariano's home with eight other people, and none of us wanted to leave!

The house was pristine, modern and fully equipped with everything that we could need. We enjoyed lounging outside, swimming in the salt water pool and venturing out with the bikes. We took full advantage of the grill, kitchen and large dining room table for dinner. We each felt comfortable in our separate, cozy bedrooms.

The location was convenient. Walgreen's was walking distance for all our basic needs. There were also bars and restaurants nearby, such as the famous Kasalta bakery, and we could drive to Old San Juan or the casino/shopping districts within 20 minutes. The best part was having the beach only a block away and in a more private area of the shoreline, as the area we used was for those living in the gated community.

Lastly, our host, Mariano, was the incredibly helpful! He maintained consistent communication throughout the entire experience from our initial contact, through booking and during the stay. Mariano was kind enough to meet us in person when we first arrived and was always able to drop by in person to talk if we had other questions or concerns through the trip.

I highly recommend this property to anyone with an 8-10 person group looking for a beach getaway! We all loved it so much that we wanted to move in!

Pefect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Mariano's home is beautiful, welcoming and has all the amenities to make a wonderful vacation! Just rented this house for a ladies getaway (8 of stayed) and we had a perfect trip! Plenty of room, the outdoor area we never wanted to leave and a kitchen equipped with everything needed. The home was clean and well maintained. The location was great too, we were able to walk to nearby bakery, shops and on days for exercise we were able to walk to Old San Juan (approx. 5 miles) and the beach was a small block away. We cannot wait to go back! Thank you Mariano for a wonderful vacation.

Family wedding vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented Mariano's beautiful home for a family vacation and our son's wedding. We couldn't have chosen a better place to create a weeks' worth of family memories. The home is gorgeous, the pictures can't capture the ambiance and beauty of the house. We saw other homes during our visit that had been rented by family members, and this was by far the best. If you are looking at this listing, and it's available, book it! We are hoping to return for another visit. Thank you Mariano!

A fabulous beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

All nine vacationers loved our beautiful accommodations. Upon arrival, just walking through the home brought my mother to tears because she was so pleased. Kitchen was spacious, dinner tables (in and out) made for some lovely family meals. I've already personally shared this VRBO post directly with friends and told them they should book it (and invite me!) Mariano is a gracious and friendly host!! Look forward to coming back some day!

Amazing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at Marino's home for my mother's 60th birthday. There was a total of 9 of us: 4 couples and teenage boy. When booking this home, I knew we would all be extremely happy with our stay, but words cannot describe how gorgeous the home was in person. The house was bright, airy, and furnished elegantly. There abundance of natural light throughout the home gave it such a warm and refreshing feel! Each room was cozy and inviting, and every bed in the home was super comfy, that every couple slept soundly. The home was laid out perfectly so that everyone felt they had enough space to move about without being on top of one another. The pool was fabulous and nice break from the beach which was breathtaking in itself. The driveway could easily fit 3 cars which was a plus, so no one had to park out in the street. And as for Mariano... what host he was! From booking the home until the day we left, Mariano made sure that each and every single one of our needs were met. He exceeded our expectations with how gracious he was and was super easy to contact if needed! This home is nothing short of perfection and was a spectacular choice for our family vacation home! We thank you again Mariano for your kindness and generosity when it came to renting your home :) we can't wait to come a visit again!!
