Great value

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Alex. Our stay was absolutely awesome. Alex met us when we arrived, then followed up to see if we needed anything. The place was clean, loved the pool table, and the pool. Great having a wash machine and dryer there. All amenities in neighborhood, nice restaurants, Walgreens. The beach was close by and very nice. The neighborhood was safe and picturesque.

I recommend staying there anytime.

Owner's Response: Thanks to you my friend! I try to be on call all the time eventhough I have two other jobs to take care of, is nice to meet my guests and make suggestions before they start enjoying their vacations. I live within 2 minutes drive so I can help in case anything breaks. We try to keep the apartment very clean and paint every other month to have it looking like new (even to the fact that is an old house) The spot of the beach near the house is one of the best of all Ocean Park. The gated community and the 24/7 security makes the neighborhood safer than other streets in the area. Hope to see you soon David! Thanks, Alex

Awesome Location and Great Way To Experience San Juan

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Alex's place! He was incredibly helpful throughout the planning process; He helped us with recommendations and even went above and beyond with helping us book different events in San Juan. I can't say enough about him as a host, he was great. The apartment was just as pictured so what you see is what you get, there are no surprises which is great. It's not a 5 star hotel but it was perfect for our needs. We felt very safe within the gates at night and outside of the gates in the day time. The only thing I would recommend is making sure you rent a car or can use your phone if you are going to want a cab right away. Usually you can catch one if you wait a little while outside the community but if you want a ride right away I'd recommend renting a car or making sure you can call a cab from your phone. The parking area was great if you do rent a car. The apartment was equipped with everything we needed for cooking, sleeping, and the beach. Alex has thought of everything. I would definitely rent from him again and highly recommend him as a host.

Owner's Response: Sorry for the delay in responding to your review, I greatly appreciate your comments on my behavior as a host (Is fun helping my guest enjoy their stay - it makes me want to go out and enjoy like I'm on vacations as well) It was a pleasure having you over as our guests! It is a very safe area within the gates at night and at daytime, it is a very nice area within Ocean Park. I hope to see you soon my friends, next time stay longer so you can adventure outside the Metro Area Thanks, Alex

Ideal Puerto Rican Base Camp

  • 5 of 5

Alex's villa by the beach was a perfect launch pad to enjoy the best that Puerto Rico has to offer. As soon as we arrived -BOOM- a double rainbow appeared over the horizon. It was a foreshadow of what was to be an epic adventure. The corner store, which boasts solid sandwiches and stocks good beer, was only a couple of blocks away. The beach was also within walking distance. A great hotel bar nearby served excellent drinks and chiarito shots. Ask for juan carlos for a tasty rum punch. On the beach sweet, beautiful babes abound, as do suave and debonair local guys. People are always walking by vending local cuisine that help maintain the day drinking that inevitably will occur. Cock fights, La Placita, and Old San Juan are all a short drive away. When recuperating back at the villa from marathon partying, you can chill out in the pool that would even get Hefner excited. The pool table next to the swimming pool is on fleek. The inside of the place makes good use of the space, and offers plenty of places to crash. One of the bathrooms has an open window of sorts from the shower to the living room, which comes in the clutch for when you need someone to hand you a frosty beer while washing that sweet, sweet tropical humidity off your body. Alex was the most accomodating host, and his pad is great for a weekend getaway with your lover or a party weekend with your friends. 10/10 would stay again. Don't be a fool and stay elsewhere.

Owner's Response: It was great having you, there's really so many good places to eat and have a great time nearby that you don't have to go too far. The beach around the corner is one of the best spots in all the Metro area and within walking distance. There's kite-surfing, windsurfing, local food and beer and more... I always try to help and suggest the best places to see and hang out based on your needs and expectations, I'm glad you liked them all. Remember that we also have 3 other apartments that can accommodate bigger groups as well. Thanks for your time and your comments, hope to see you again soon. alex

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5

This place was the first place I have rented through HomeAway that was not up to standard. The air conditioning did not work. The rooms were infested with insects. There was mildew in the bathrooms (mainly the shower areas). The kitchen was not clean (dishes had old food in them, refrigerator was not thoroughly clean, floor was dirty). We are accustomed to a different lifestyle. This home and neighborhood did not feel safe to us.

Our trip was December 31 through Jan 5th. My family and I could not sleep in such a filthy place. But I must admit, Alex was understanding when I called him. Alex is a nice person and he allowed us to check out and he refunded me for my entire stay. I was able to find another home on HomeAway and the owner allowed my family and I to check in for the remainder of our stay. Once we made it to the new beachfront location this became one of BEST our vacations.
