Imagine landing at San Juan International Airport, only 8 minutes to our charming home, with two apartments available, inside the exclusive Ocean Park gated community. We can arrange to have beach lounge chairs and umbrella waiting for you with endless supply of refreshments. Dine on one of two gourmet restaurants right on the beach. Within 2 blocks is Kasalta a Spanish Bakery.
There are so many choices like Mexican, Spanish, Pizza, and local food nearby. We are near lively Loiza Street with several fast food restaurants. It's Yoga Studio is just across Mcleary Street next to a laundry, mini market and gas station. Walk up that block you will find many stores, post office, fruits/vegetables and several restaurants. Walgreen’s is 24/7 just around the corner. This is just in the neighborhood. We are on the beach block, no streets to cross to get to wonderful Ocean Park Beach. It's perfect location can't be beat.
We are a retired airline couple. We live on the property.
Lynne and Eric Fernandez purchased this house in 1980
We chose this area because it was close to our work, the airport, and it's proximity to the beach was ideal being right in the city.
Our area is an oasis in the middle of a charming city with lots to do or not to do.
We spent a great month in the one-bedroom. The owners, Eric and Lynne, were so kind and helpful. Lynne even had our apartment stocked with some essentials (beer, wine, milk, coffee) when we arrived. It was very clean and had everything we needed. We enjoyed their two dogs, Mickey and Mini. The patio is a perfect place to enjoy meals and just relaxing. Oh yes, the beach was perfect and just a block away. The area is very nice and we felt very safe as we explored Ocean Park. There were also some nice restaurants nearby. We will definitely be going back sometime in the future.
My husband, college age daughter, and I decided we needed a trip to a warm location for Easter this year. After searching on various sites, Lynne and Eric's apartment looked perfect. We ended up renting both the one bedroom and the studio. It was a perfect setup for the three of us. The beach is just a block away and there was easy access to a wonderful lunch complete with beer, wine and pina coladas at Pamela's restaurant. There were also vendors selling empanadas that smelled wonderful and water, beer and ice cream. Lynne provided us with everything you could need for the beach...except the sun ...but we still enjoyed ourselves. We arrived at the apartment around midnight after flying all day and were so happy to see our fridge was stocked with juice, milk, bread, jam and coffee. Within walking distance are several good restaurants including Bagua and Kasalta bakery. Lynne and her husband were so welcoming and we loved our daily visits from their dogs and cat. The Cocqui frog noises reminded us we were not in a high rise hotel! Their apartments were spotlessly clean, fully equipped and in a great location. I can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you to Lynne and Eric for a wonderful trip.
We loved staying with Lynn and her husband near the beach. The beach is easy walking distance (they provide ice chest and chairs). The location was great. Lots of local and touristy type restaurants nearby. The apartment had all the conveniences we expected and needed while we were there. Her two dogs (the greeters) were friendly and totally minded their manners, no problem at all. Easy cab ride to Old San Juan, we paid $15.00 going and $18.00 coming back (so we assumed he included the tip). Loved the safety of the gated community but all close restaurant locations also felt completely at ease. Lynn was very knowledgable and recommend several restaurants. (All great picks.) The locals on the street & beach were friendly and helpful, as well. What a nice place to stay. We would recommend to anyone and would definitely stay again when in San Juan.
Our family just returned from a week stay at this beautiful home near Ocean Park beach and all we can say is Wow! We absolutely loved everything about it. We have stayed at many VRBOs over the years, but this one was simply the best. The home was so clean and immaculate. This was our first trip to Puerto Rico and both Lynne and Eric made sure we enjoyed it. From the beach chairs and umbrella for the beach, to the fabulous home with everything we could possibly want (including WiFi), to the wealth of information they provided us, we could not have been happier. Only sad part was having to leave to return home.
The home is in a beautiful gated community near everything you could possibly want. Beautiful Ocean Park beach is just a short walk down a private street. Many restaurants and shops nearby, including the awesome Kasalta bakery/deli, Mangos restaurant and bar, Yogen Fruz frozen yogurt, a surf/beach shop that is loaded with gear, and if you need the comfort of knowing there is a modern Walgreens not far away, it is just a short walk. Yes, there is even a McDonalds if you need to go there. Coin laundry, gas station and quickshop is also just a short walk.
We highly recommend this rental to anyone thinking about staying in Puerto Rico. Why would anyone want to stay in a hotel when you can stay in a home like this and feel like a resident of Puerto Rico during your stay with such nice neighbors and Lynne and Eric. The lovely sound of the Cocqui frogs at night really added to the tropical ambiance.
Thank you Lynne and Eric for everything !!!
We really enjoyed our stay here. Geat location, warm, welcoming hosts. But we had too many visitors - roaches in the kitchen! I know, we were in the tropics and should have expected them, but yuck! Aside from this the place was great. Plenty of space, towels, kitchen abundantly stocked. Overall, we had a great holiday and the bugs were a minor irritation. Just a few steps to the beach, some great restaurants, and did I mention the beach?
I have stayed at the White House in Ocean Park twice, and I cannot recommend it more. I came for the first time for two weeks with my family, and the location and proximity to the beach (as well as great yoga studio) made it a perfect fit. The house is great and the owners are even better - the warmest, friendliest people who will do the utmost to make sure you have a pleasant stay. I had such a nice time that I came back one year later, and plan on doing so in the future!
