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!

Great Place, Great Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time to rent a house instead of booking a hotel, and I will never go back to hotels! I felt so comfortable in this house and the landlords are extremely welcoming and charming. It was in the perfect location: a few steps away from the beach, a quick drive away from everything we wanted to see, and parking was right outside our door. The pictures on this site do not do the place justice! It is tastefully decorated with a very modern and comfortable feel. I would gladly stay here every time I come back to Puerto Rico.

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.

Great Experience!

  • 4 of 5

The place was almost as described, clean, close to the beach and comfortable. I will definitively rent the place again. I enjoy my stay there. The pool is small but you can do exercise there or sit down and relax. There is no computer in the apartment, I do not know if you have to ask for it. The bathroom is upstairs. The view to the ocean from the balcony is only through some trees to the right between two buildings nothing close to enjoy the view but the beach is close enough to go and sit down to enjoy the beach and beautiful ocean view.
