A wonderful place to experience San Juan and other PR adventures!

  • 5 of 5

Kim is a very attentive host; friendly, warm and welcoming.

We stayed in the lower apt and it was peaceful; noise from upper neighbors was negligible. The space worked well for 4 adults and 1 understanding twenty-something! The beds were very comfortable and the linens were very nice.

The kitchen was fully stocked with items for cooking, which we did cook on two occasions. It was nice to experience some wonderful dishes at other recommended nearby restaurants.

We rented a car during our stay and there were no issues parking on the street. Just like anywhere in an urban location; don't leave valuables laying about.

The pool was my favorite part because at the end of a long day hiking the rain forest or walking around Old San Juan or a day trip to Culebra for snorkeling, the pool and Kim's back yard were an oasis like no other. It was truly the part of my vacation I enjoyed the most!

While the beach was nice and only a 2 minute walk, we rarely got to it because we were so busy the entire 5 days we were there. We would very much like to return and enjoy the beach and sites and sounds of the neighborhood. I am glad we went to Puerto Rico, we will be back! Thank you Kim!

Urban Fun

  • 5 of 5

Our little family really enjoyed this close beach location, pool and larger living space of this apartment. We stayed at four different places during our visit to Puerto Rico and this place was my husbands favorite. There are fun activities for the kids/games in the house. The kitchen is well equipped. My only negative was the cat smell, scratches and pet hair on some of the furniture. But the apartment was clean overall.

Beautiful property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended!! We stayed here for half a week in March and had a wonderful stay in this well-appointed, spacious apartment. We loved the modern feel and open layout, with two sitting areas, a pool table, and grand piano. The bedrooms were on opposite sides of the apartment and are completely separate from each other - if you have kids and want to be able to hear them in another room, a monitor might be helpful. There was a large group staying in the place above us, but the soundproofing was excellent, and we could not hear them at all. The best part was the pool - not huge, but we enjoyed relaxing family time here and we had it all to ourselves. Our 4 year old had an amazing time in it and still talks about the floating toys they had in it.

Location was great, too - down the street from the beach, in a walkable neighborhood. We walked to restaurants a couple of times, but also found it really accessible to drive to the grocery store or Condado restaurants. We Ubered to Old San Juan without a problem (Lyft not available).

The owner was also super friendly and helpful, and did whatever she could to make our stay comfortable. She was available to greet us when we got there, and answered all of our questions about where to go. There were towels for the beach/pool and everything you need for cooking. She clearly takes pride in her property and being a good host!

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This spacious apartment has a great location, near a friendly beach and lots of great restaurants, and very close to the airport. The service is wonderful, too.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this review :) The house was designed and built by a very well know architect in the 1950's. It's a tropical modern design with spacious spaces with great natural light and ventilation. Although the house is fully remodeled we respected and or enhanced the main elements of the design. It is a fun practical beach house! Welcome!

Beautiful, well-appointed, convenient...awesome

  • 4 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Kim's place as we were celebrating my wife's birthday weekend with three of our friends. Kim was extremely communicative from the very start and answered all my questions before we even arrived on site. Once there, we knew from the beginning that Kim's place was great! The pictures actually don't the property justice. The space is absolutely gorgeous in a lovely neighborhood. It's conveniently located (only a 10 - 15 minutes drive from the airport and a couple of minutes walking distance from a beautiful beach). Bedrooms were a very nice size, bathrooms were clean with good water pressure. Just provide the groceries and the kitchen had EVERYTHING else you'd need to cook up a storm. The pool was lovely and, although not massive, it was actually much larger than I expected and it made for a perfect setting for a morning dip before venturing off on our day's activities. It was a great vacation! Kim was even able to accommodate a late check out as there weren't any guests immediately checking in after us. We would LOVE to come back to Kim's house the next time we're vacationing in Puerto Rico and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this space to anyone.

Perfect base!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were wonderful. We enjoyed a week at the house. It was the perfect home base for our many adventures on the island. The house had a lovely pool and other activities to keep busy while waiting for our next adventure. Close to Condado, Old San Juan, El Yunque(within 45 minutes) and a wonderful beach within a very short walk. Through out our week we visited other beaches and locations: -and we were very happy with our pick.

Share the hospitality, joy, and vast variety of water sports with residents on the weekends.

A five minute walk from the popular Condado area where a wide selection of Restaurants, Hotels, Casinos and Boutiques can be found. A 20 minute drive from Luis Munoz Marin International Airport and 10 minutes from the Colonial City of Old San Juan.

Because it is a residential area, excessive noise after 10:00 PM is not allowed.

Other Activities: Restaurants, Boutiques, Casinos.
