About Carmen Bassin

Your hosts are Carmen and Hunter. We have spent the last year and a half renovating this beautiful property and are delighted to share it with you. Combine that with our vast knowledge and enthusiasm for the island your stay in our house will be positive and memorable. Welcome to our home.

Carmen Bassin purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Carmen Bassin chose Ocean Park San Juan

Tropical climate, a beautiful Spanish villa next to the best beach in San Juan, in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of all the conveniences of urban life. What's not to love?

What makes this apartment unique

Ocean Park is quiet, on the beach, near everything. Very metropolitan but with an old world charm. Stately, mature trees stretch out to shade streets lined with homes that were built in the 40's and 50's.

The Atlantic Ocean is a few seconds walk away 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.

Our house is a great base from which to explore San Juan and the rest of the island. Please come and experience it for yourself.

Perfect location

  • 5 out 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.

Unbeatable location, safe, wonderful hospitality!

  • 5 out of 5
Carmen and Hunter were the best hosts and we had such a lovely time in their villa. They were there to welcome us when we arrived, gave us a tour of the place, and were always helpful if we ever needed anything, but still gave us complete privacy.

We were a group of 12 college students and the place fit us all comfortably. The property is located in Ocean Park, a very safe, gated community. It's super close to Condado, and Old San Juan is just a short drive away. To go to places farther away, we definitely recommend renting a car as it makes getting around much easier, especially when traveling with a big group.

The cherry on top was that we were practically 10 seconds away from a beautiful beach; grab some breakfast at Kasalta Bakery, head to the sandy shores, bask under the sun, and you're set. Island life at its best!

Thanks, Carmen and Hunter, for being a part of the experience that made us fall in love with Puerto Rico! Hope to be back one day, sooner rather than later.

The best place for a large group in San Juan

  • 5 out of 5
Excellent place! The house is only 50 feet from the beach in a very nice community. It was a first trip to Puerto Rico for us and we didn't know much about the island. An owner is a local guy who lived all his live there. He helped a lot with his advice and experience. It definitely exceeded our expectations, and by far it's a best place i've visited.

Perfect Stay Near the Beach with Amazing Hosts!

  • 5 out of 5
I cannot recommend Carmen and Hunter's place highly enough! Everything about our stay with Carmen and Hunter was absolutely phenomenal. The location of their place is perfect - it's literally a few seconds from a gorgeous beach and a short walking distance from anything you may need like cute cafes (Kasalta is amazing!), restaurants, and drug stores. Carmen and Hunter were exceptionally warm hosts and have an amazing knowledge of Puerto Rico. They can give you advice on great places to go around the island, but, their home is so beautiful and inviting, you might be reluctant to leave! Overall, our stay with Carmen and Hunter was perfect and we are looking forward to our next!

Beautiful place right by the beach

  • 5 out of 5
I had a great time staying in this beautiful apartment. The whole place was recently renovated and the hosts, Carmen and Hunter, have put in a great deal of effort to make this place the perfect home away from home. The apartment is exactly as depicted on the pictures and so close to the beach that you will want to go for a swim all the time.
Carmen and Hunter are also very knowledgeable about Puerto Rico and will be happy to give you tips to make the most out of your trip.
P.S. Make sure to pick up one of the delicious almond cakes from the bakery down the street!

Our Spanish villa is located on a quiet corner of Ocean Park with the beach about 50 feet from the front door. Your vacation home is an entire 3 bedroom, 3 bath, spacious and airy newly renovated and newly furnished second floor apartment.

Ocean Park is one of San Juan's oldest neighborhoods filled with grand old trees shading Spanish style houses. It borders a wide, sandy beach which is one the finest in the city.

We are a 10 minute drive from the airport and within walking distance of a variety of restaurants, fast food, bars, mini-markets, pharmacies, playground, public tennis courts, gyms and yoga studios. There are miles of flat sidewalks and beaches for walking and jogging and we are just two short blocks from the famous Kasalta Bakery and are in between the two big hotel and casino districts of Condado and Isla Verde.

A 15 minute cab ride will take you to the cobble stone streets of Old San Juan with it's lovely Spanish architecture, huge old forts, churches, restaurants, bars and shops. It is also where you can catch the ferry to the Bacardi Rum Factory across the bay.

Ocean Park is a few blocks from the vast network of highways connecting you to the entire island--to the world renown Radio Telescope in Arecibo, to the incredible El Yunque Rainforest, the beautiful Luquillo beach and the quaint town of Fajardo where you get on a catamaran for a day sail and snorkeling adventure perfect for the whole family. You can drive to Rincon with it's famous surfing beaches and magnificent sunset and hit the light house in Cabo Rojo and on the way enjoying some of the best local fish in the town of Boqueron. Maybe you would like to take a drive up into the mountains of the Cordillera Central and tour a plantation where our wonderful coffee is grown. There is a lot to do if you are in an exploring mood.

Or….you can just hang out in your home away from home, relax, enjoy the beach and dine at the wide variety of restaurants and bars located just a few steps from your doorstep. Kasalta Bakery with it's mouthwatering array of baked goods (the quesitos are divine), local coffee and smoothies, sandwiches, soups and a full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu will have you coming back for more. Another block away you can find fast food, local food, Greek, Italian, Peruvian, Chinese and more. You won't go hungry.

The island offers spelunking, zip lining, diving, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, upright paddle boarding, kite surfing, wind surfing, sailing and lots and lots of beaches to explore. These are just a few of the many things awaiting you here where the currency is in US dollars and US citizens do not need a passport.
