About Isabel or Juan

We are renting short term for 8 years and all our clients are really happy with their stay. We already have 53 reviews! Come and see for yourself what do you think. We live in the apartment the first years and it has a great location, it is safe and really charming and cute. And 20 steps to the beach! We just add a private pool!.

Isabel or Juan purchased this townhome in 2002

Why Isabel or Juan chose San Juan

It is steps from the beach and that was really important for us, with small kids the beach was our playground...Also you do not need a car to go to restaurants, groceries, fun places and the Old San Juan is a 15 min. ride.

What makes this townhome unique

It has two patios one in the entrance with hamacas, the other at the rear part of the townhouse with a private pool and one terrace inside the master bedroom for a romantic breakfast. Just perfect!

20 steps to the Beach, Condado-Ocean Park, PRIVATE POOL-Best location-
average rating of 4.814815 based on 81 reviews


  • 5 of 5

I am puertorican living in upstate New York and wanted to go back to PR with my husband and three young kids to visit family and enjoy the warm weather. This loft apt is in Ocean Park which is one of the best area to stay in San Juan. The apt is spacious with nice decor and super super close to the beach. You get a street parking spot right on front of the apt which is very important because Ocean Park can be busy on the weekends. There are restaurants , deli, ice cream place, pharmacy etc.. that are walking distance. You can walk all the way to Condado if you want!. We walked to Kasalta's deli few times, B burro, and La cueva del mar. Isabel is the owner and lives in France which made me concern at first but everything went very smooth. Ana was the person that took care of us when we got there and she is amazing! I will definitely go back!

Todo estuvo genial!!

One of our Best vacations ever / LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION ! ! !

  • 5 of 5

Owners, Juan and Isabel could not have been more accommodating or delightful, and Ana, was a sweetheart, immediately available should we have needed anything. The home was very well equipped, from blender to beach towels & chairs! (Moreover, the private hot pool was amazing!) The location was phenomenal. A minute walk to the beach, and 3 or 5 minutes to stores and restaurants. I highly recommend Pinky's for breakfast, and Ocean Park Cafe for dinner, both had DELICIOUS offerings! If I make it back to PR (we came from California, so it was a trek) we would certainly hope to stay in this awesome place again! While there, make sure and take advantage of Uber, rides were SO reasonable. We even hired one for a full day at about $10 hr! Can't say enough good things about this place, the people, the experience. All so very positive!

Great location.

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this rental. The location is wonderful - the beautiful beach is through a small alley across the street. There is no real view of the ocean, if this is important for your rental. However, the location is such that we visited the clean, large beach several times a day. The beach in this area is swimmable. The rental itself is clean, open, comfortable and located in a nice neighborhood. Kitchen essentials are provided (stovetop, large toaster oven, microwave, even plastic wine glasses), as are beach towels and chairs, shampoo and body wash. Washer and dryer are available in the unit with needed soap. There is an iron and ironing board. I enjoyed sitting on the front porch each morning. The owner provided great information about the community. Ana is nearby if assistance is needed. She is very warm and responsive.

Old San Juan is 10 minutes away, thus we went into town daily. Baccardi about 20 minutes west. El Yunque is 40 mins away. The rental has the benefit of being at the beach, while being convenient to many sights. Food shopping is 5 minutes away, clothing malls are 15 minutes away.

A wonderful townhouse so close to the beach you don't need a cooler!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed this property and would recommend it to friends. The owners are very responsive, the property is well-maintained, and it was exactly what we needed for a beach vacation.

The arrival/departure process was simple and flawless. The property manager was already waiting for us at the property when we drove up to give us keys. Departure was even easier (i.e. leave the keys inside and lock the door behind us).

The location of the property is, without question, its best feature. It is 23 steps to the beach and another 42 steps to the perfect sand (yes, I counted). It’s also not on a main street so it’s quieter. Lastly, there are a number of great restaurants all within walking distance (Acapulco Taqueria, Pirilo Pizza Rustica, and Kasalta).

The townhouse itself was very nice. The VRBO listing is accurate and the pictures give you a good idea for what to expect. A few highlights – The front porch area has a freshwater shower and wonderful hammock chairs. The kitchen comes with some basics (paper towels, dish soap, coffee filters) which is nice because we’ve stayed at other rentals where you have to buy all that. The plunge pool (~10’ x 4’) is very nice for lounging in the shade and in the evenings. There are also plenty of towels (both beach and bathroom) and other beach supplies (chairs and sand toys). We had two minor critiques. The trundle bed is right outside of the master bedroom so there’s no way to leave the master bedroom without walking through this space so privacy was a minor issue (you can’t discern this from the pictures on the website). Also, the WIFI is really slow.

We only had one complaint (and it’s not a big one), but it was enough to reduce the rating we gave from 5 to 4 stars. The owner confirmed that we would have a parking space reserved for us when we booked the rental. However, upon arrival we were informed that the owner over-promised the parking spaces (there are only 2 spaces for 3 different rental units) so we had to use on-street parking. However, due to the popularity of this location there’s a high demand for on-street parking so it’s impossible to come by on the weekend (especially in our case during July 4th weekend). Once we found on-street parking we were reluctant to move the car for fear of not finding any parking upon our return which inhibited our plans to go anywhere over the long weekend. Had we known that no parking space was available we wouldn’t have rented the car for the full week.

Great location! Great House and a Great Time.

  • 5 of 5

First timers in P.R. but 12 years running as Homeaway.com users exclusively in S.W. Florida.

This property was fabulous! Clean and efficient with a kinda Island charm.

Right there off the beach which was awesome!

Our Family of 4 felt very much at home and would recommend this fully.

I gotts say the air conditioning units were the most efficient I have ever seen especially with the Island Temps.

This property had all the comforts and amenities that anyone can want.

and Great restaurants and cafe's within walking distance.

Stay Here! we will definitely again.

Bill- Chicago.

Everything they say and more

  • 5 of 5

there is nothing better than waking up, walking 20 steps (or less) to the beach, swimming for an hour, rinsing off using the outdoor shower, and jumping in the little pool. Everything else in the day seems better when you start out that way. GREAT for a couple's get-away or a small family. Fully functioning kitchen, comfortable furniture, your own pool!, peaceful and serene decorating: You feel at home from the very first minute you enter. Great little neighborhood, but I like quiet, safe and non-touristy, which this definitely is. Live like a local, a very lucky local. I would definitely recommend to friends and family and plan on returning to the exact same place next time I'm in San Juan.
