Great location! Really urban location with a garden. Walking distance to everything in Miramar. Close to Condado and Old San Juan. Located on the first floor of a small, quiet 3 floor building, typical of the Miramar Arts District, this apartment has 11ft high ceilings, big windows, air condition units in bedroom and living area, an outdoor terrace, and private parking. The master bedroom has hard wood floors, a queen size bed, and ample storage space. The apartment sleeps three. The living area has a small futon that sleeps one person. Kitchen is fully equipped with coffee maker, microwave, fridge and washer/dryer. There is a large flat screen TV, cable and free wifi.
The private patio space is great for relaxing. You can enjoy the beauty of the trees that surround it and the vegetation and flowers inside.
Miramar is a great and lively neighborhood. It is famous for its restaurants, coffee shops, cinema, art and music. There are over 14 great restaurants/bars walking distance from the apartment.
It is also very close to Condado (walking distance) and Old San Juan (5 min. in car or public transportation). It is a very popular neighborhood that appeals to young and old alike because of the many things to do and visit.
And best of all, everything is walking distance: the supermarket, the drugstore, the post office, UPS store, banks, deli, coffee shops, bars, restaurants, hotels, convention center. So if you come for business or for pleasure, you have all you need close by.
During the day walk to the beach, go to Old San Juan or El Condado... so close! And, in the evening walk to one of best movie theaters of the metropolitan area or have a great dinner or just enjoy the music and some drinks in one of the bars, hotels or lounges. Also, if you like art, you will find art galleries and museums close by, too.
The Urban Garden is perfect for a getaway vacation! Artists, travelers, writers, families and business people are welcome. Just steps from the bus stop, beach, bike paths, and the Puerto Rico Convention Center. This is definitely your best choice in Miramar. A must see!

Miramar! what a great place to live in! It literally means looking at the sea. It is synonym of tropical breeze. It is close to the beach, to Old San Juan, to Santurce and Condado. All is walking distance or just a short bus or bike ride away. I am an artist and in Miramar I can walk to museums, galleries, art shops, restaurants, bars, pizzerias, cinemas. It has great public transportation that connects you to all these places, too. Even the train is easy to take from here. The apartment? I fell in love with this apartment immediately. It is situated in one of the best streets in Miramar, lined with trees. There are two big trees right in front of my terrace. The building is one of the old mansions of Miramar that was transformed into a condo in the 80s. The ceilings are high. It has arches! I have worked hard remodeling it and now it is just the way I like it. I am back in NY now, I really miss the sunshine, the breeze and the liveliness of Miramar and the coziness of my apartment.
This apartment is unique! It has a great outdoor space with beautiful vegetation and a great breeze.
Also, Miramar is a very hip neighborhood. It is famous for its restaurants, coffee shops, cinema, art and music. There are over 14 great restaurants/bars walking distance from my apartment. Here are a some of them:
Melanzanna (italian), Pizza Birra (italian), Abreu's Wine Cellar (spanish), Casita Miramar (puertorican), Café Miramar (puertorican), Lima (peruvian), La Jaquita Baya (puertorican), Papillon Bistro (french/provençal), Soda (artesanal), Bistro 606 (french), Augusto's Cuisine (international), La Pradera (puertorican), Osaka (Japanese), Bartola (mexican), Los Pinos (24/7) (puertorican).
All these places are so, so, close. No need for a car or taxi to move around.
Very clean and comfortable. The owners were very quick to respond to any issued that came up. Restaurants and beach within walking distance. The transit stop is just outside the unit, only minutes to Old San Juan by transit. We spent most the time when at the apt on the patio. We definitely would recommend this little gem.
Located on fairly busy corner right next to the bus stops. Easy 75 cent bus ride to Old San Juan. The Walmart is less than a mile away, the Condado Plaza Beach is also less than one mile away. Located in the Miramar neighborhood which has a Movie house, grocery, pharmacy, and many restaurants. The apartment is small but includes a washer/dryer stack, and kitchen. I loved the place and plan to return for twice as long next year.
Very nice, clean and comfortable apartment. Supermarket,Theater, beach, restaurants at walking distance. If you rent a car very secure parking area. My husband love the little patio area. Great location! Definitely will go back there!
The apartment was clean and true to the description in the website. It is comfortable for 1-2 people, even though if you don't mind close proximity it could be fit for more.
The location is great, very close (walking) to everything that you need, supermarket, pharmacy, cinema, Marshalls and plenty of restaurants to choose from. Miramar is a very enchanting neighborhood. You even have a very nice little beach. If you like walking like us, it is an easy walk to Condado, which is a more touristy area, or a longer walk (45 minutes) to beautiful Old San Juan. If you don't like to walk there is public transportation very,very close by.
On the downside, the apartment can be noisy at nights and mornings when you are sleeping because the bus stop is outside your window, and the Fernandez Juncos Ave. is a busy street. Also, the apartment can get very dusty due to the busy street so I recommend to get a swifter or vaccum cleaner if you are very allergic like us. We borrowed a swifter, which made it much easier. If you rent a car be sure to rent a very small car since the parking space is tiny and the parking lot is very tight.
But all in all is a great apartment and we enjoyed very much the 12 days we spent there.
We enjoyed staying at the apartment!
- The apartment is a nice space. Really high ceilings and lots of light make it really bright and fun to stay in. The place does have accommodations for a about 4 people (one large bed in the bedroom, and a firm couch and not so firm 1-person sofabed in the living room area).
- Right outside the apartment is a bus that takes you to Condado, one of the trendy parts of San Juan that also has some really great beaches. The bus that takes you to old San Juan, another great place to visit, is less than a 5 minute walk away.
- The place has a kitchen with a pretty nice electric stove, so you can cook and eat at home if you like.
- Wireless connection is strong throughout the apartment, and even outside in the enclosed garden.
- The place has a washer and dryer in the apartment, which was GREAT.
- If you prefer to stay in Miramar (the upper/middle-class residential neighborhood the apartment is in), there are quite a few restaurants and bars that are very close by, one of which is a 24 hour Puerto Rican diner. There's also a small supermarket about a 10 minute walk away.
- The property owner/manager was available by text and responded to questions within 5-10 minutes. She also lives nearby, just in case.
I can't really claim any negatives about the apartment, but being that this was my first time visiting Puerto Rico, the following would have been helpful:
- A cutting board! We did a bunch of cooking in the apartment and could have really used a proper cutting board.
- The dryer vent wasn't fully functional when we were there (but I believe they're working on it). The vent tube is directed into a small container of water... which ended up spilling a bit when the dryer was being used.
- Clear markings for the fans! It took us a couple of days to realize that level 5 was the lowest power setting for the fan, rather than the highest!
And the following info would've been great to have upon or before our arrival:
- Clear directions from the airport to the apartment by bus, in case you want to do that instead of a taxi.
- Some prepared info for taking the buses to old San Juan, Condado, and other points of interest in the city.
- Car rental information (we used Charlie car rental, which was CHEAP and overall good)
Overall, a great stay!
The apartment was in a nice area, mostly quiet, though frequent police sirens at night. It was safe- we jogged and took walks in the early am and early evenings, never encountered any problems. Some possibly homeless people seemed to relax on the steps of a boarded building across the street during the day, but they didn't bother anyone. Apartment was clean, quiet, all amenities such as the air conditioning, internet, television, shower- worked great. Lots of clean towels, sheets, blankets provided. Stove worked-no oven avaiilable. Had an ironing board-no iron available. Bedroom with full bed- very nice. The futons were in a small area but cozy and clean and comfortable. Would stay there again if we returned to Puerto Rico.
