Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday apartment in Ocean Park San Juan - Casa Marquesa

Perfect location! Spacious apartment, Sleeps 8-11, 3 full baths, 50 ft to beach

Enjoy your few seconds walk to the best beach in San Juan from this newly 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, Internet TV via Roku.

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.

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 or day sail & snorkel trips well in advance.

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. We will be happy to share our experiences and answer any and all questions that will help enhance your stay with us. Welcome to our home.

Carmen Bassin purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Carmen Bassin chose Ocean Park San Juan

Location, climate, a beautiful, tropical apartment next to the best beach in San Juan, in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of all the conveniences of urban life. Great hosts….What's not to love?

What makes this apartment unique

We walked into the house with our real estate agent in the morning and had a signed contract a few hours later. It was one of the stately Spanish houses that had never been altered and we could hardly contain our enthusiasm. Throughout renovation we have tried to maintain it's old world charm and tropical atmosphere preserving many of it's original features while enhancing others without losing the flavor of the architecture.

Ocean Park neighborhood is just slightly off the beaten path and one of the oldest neighborhoods 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 stretch out to shade streets lined with Spanish style homes originally 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 or just to hang out and enjoy a string of beach days. Please come and enjoy it for yourself.

Great Location, Steps from Beach

  • 5 out 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 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!

You just can't beat our location for a great outside of a hotel experience. Perfect for families and groups between 8-11 our Spanish villa sits on a quiet corner with the beach just 50 feet from the doorstep. Your vacation home is the entire 3 bedroom, 3 bath, spacious and airy newly renovated and newly furnished second floor apartment. We are just a few blocks from several restaurants, 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 restaurants and bars.

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 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.
