Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Ocean Park - Casa Marquesa

Ideal location, safe, large apartment, sleeps 11, 3 full baths, 50 ft to beach

Enjoy your few seconds walk to the best beach in San Juan from this recently renovated second floor, walk-up apartment in our beautiful Spanish villa located on a quiet corner of one of San Juan’s oldest neighborhoods of Ocean Park. It is a spacious and airy living space with 3 air-conditioned bedrooms, 3 full baths, 2 living rooms each with a sleep sofa, fully equipped kitchen with laundry facility, a dining area, 2 beautiful outdoor terraces, a private and secure entrance onto a small courtyard with an outdoor shower. All rooms have ceiling fans and we offer high speed Internet and Roku TV.

We are a 10 minute drive from the airport and blocks from a variety of restaurants, bars, mini-markets, pharmacies, a playground, public tennis courts, gyms and yoga studios.

Your front door opens up to miles of flat sidewalks and beaches for walking and jogging and you are just two short blocks from the famous Kasalta Bakery or dine on the beach at Pamela's Numero Uno a half block away.

The neighborhood is located in between the two big hotel and casino districts of Condado and Isla Verde and a 10 minute cab ride to Old San Juan. There is plenty to keep you occupied without having to travel far.

To explore the island it is recommended to rent a car when you book your flight especially during the holidays but if you are coming to enjoy the sand, sun and sea a short cab ride will get you to Old San Juan, Isla Verde and Condado and there are tour guides with large vans for any day trips you would like to take. We recommend you book any trips for the bio bay, Culebra, the Camuy Caves or day sail & snorkel trips well in advance.

About Carmen Bassin

Your hosts are Carmen and Hunter. We live on the first floor of this beautiful property and are delighted to share it with you. We will be happy to point you in the right direction and answer any and all questions to ensure your experience is an enjoyable one. Welcome to our home.

Carmen Bassin purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Carmen Bassin chose Ocean Park

You just can't beat our location, the space is an airy and open tropical apartment next to the best beach in San Juan. The quiet and very safe neighborhood is within walking distance of all the conveniences of urban life. Great hosts….What's not to love?

What makes this apartment unique

Ocean Park neighborhood is one of the oldest in the metropolitan San Juan area. A vigilant neighborhood association has kept the big hotels at bay and so is quite unchanged from it's early days. Stately, mature trees shade streets lined with Spanish style homes originally built in the 40's and 50's. It is quiet and yet just a few blocks away is the busy hotel district of Condado.

The Atlantic Ocean is a few seconds walk from the front door and the famous Kasalta Bakery with it's delicious quesitos, sandwiches and Puerto Rican coffee is only two and a half blocks from our doorstep. You can choose to dine on the beach a half a block away at Pamela's Numero Uno where you can also rent lounge chairs, large umbrellas and have food and beverages served to you throughout the day

Our house is a great base from which to explore San Juan and the rest of the island or just to hang out and enjoy a string of beach days. We are always available to our guests and enjoy sharing our island experiences with our them. Please come and experience the place for yourself.

Great family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We Had a great family reunion at the lovely house of Carmen and Hunter . We were 15 people and 3 generations and it was the perfect house. Great kitchen and plenty of space. With the beach just there, families could go to the beach or explore the rainforest or the town and still get together at night. We would recommend it anytime!!

Great location and very hospitable owners

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much! My family (2 parents, 3 kids, sister in law and mother in law) were very comfortable with the accommodations. Everything was clean and we had everything we needed for our stay. Many restaurants were in walking distance of this house. The home is located on a beautiful residential street perfect for morning jogs or walks. We loved hanging out in the patios and feeling the ocean breeze! The beach is steps away which was perfect! Carmen and Hunter were very attentive but also gave us our privacy to enjoy your vacation time. The next time we plan to come to Puerto Rico, we would most definitely stay here again!

Loved every minute !!

  • 5 of 5

My adult siblings and our spouses spent a glorious week at Carmen and Hunters place in San Juan's Ocean Park area of Puerto Rico. The location was ideal! We were steps from the beach, minutes from several great restaurants and within easy driving distance of historical sites, the airport and lots of other activities. The apartment was spacious, clean, and had the feel of the tropics. The owners did a fantastic job renovating it! All 8 of us felt that there was ample room and the two terraces were perfect! Carmen and Hunter are fantastic people! Made us feel at home and were very helpful yet not intrusive. I'd go back in a heartbeat!!! Highly recommend Casa Marquesa ��

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family decided to do Christmas a little later than December this year. Instead, we chose to go to San Juan, PR in March. There were 8 adults altogether and we had a blast!! We booked the apartment with Carmen, who was very flexible and accommodating. Also, she had so many great recommendations of activities to do, places to eat, etc. that it really made our trip 10x more enjoyable! And as a bonus, her and Hunter were able to translate and were really helpful with letting us know which areas and activities were safe to go to. I highly recommend this place and hope to get back there sometime soon!!

Great Location, Steps from Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six, four adults and 2 children, ages 10 and 13, had a great time in Puerto Rico. Carmen and Hunter were great hosts, giving us ideas of places to visit and restaurants to try. The apartment was very nice and well cared for. Our two granddaughters had a great time with the boogie boards provided and it was great to have beach chairs available to take to the beach which was just steps away from the apartment. Kasalta Bakery, within walking distance from the apartment, had wonderful pastries, must try. Mango's restaurant, also within walking distance, was very good.

Carmen and Hunter were always available for ask questions, but also gave us our privacy. Thank you Carmen and Hunter!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We comfortably fit 2 families of four in this wonderfully located upstairs apartment. Fabulous outdoor terraces, one shaded, one not so there were always choices. Steps to the beach, very secure. Owners were extremely helpful. Really a beautiful place. Pictures do not do it justice. Highly recommend!

Short drive to grocery and old San Juan. Walking to best pastry shop, Kasalta, and beach restaurant, Pamela's.

You just can't beat our location for a great neighborhood living experience. Perfect for families and groups up to 11. Our Spanish villa sits on a quiet corner with the beach just 50 feet from the doorstep. Close and safe enough to the beach that even your kids can run back and forth if need be. Your vacation home is the entire 3 bedroom, 3 bath, spacious and airy and sparkling clean second floor apartment. We are just a few blocks from several restaurants including the famous Kasalta Bakery, Numero Uno and Mango's, bars, pharmacies, mini-markets and about a 10 minute drive from the airport as well as to Old San Juan. You can walk to Condado in about 15 minutes and Loiza street which is about a five minute walk away is packed with shops, businesses, vegetable stands, restaurants and bars.

Ocean Park is one of San Juan's oldest neighborhoods running shoulder to shoulder with the best beach in the metropolitan area. It is filled with grand old trees shading Spanish style houses built in the 50's and 60's. We are a gated community with 24 hour security guards. There is street parking and easy access to the highway for island exploration. Please contact us and we will be happy to answer any questions.
