Alejandro (Alex) Cabanelas purchased this house in 2002
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.
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.
Nice budget rental property, had everything we needed and close to the beach. No frills but very convenient. Owner was very helpful and provided all amenities as requested. Would rent again!
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.
It was better than I expected, it's 2 blocks away from the beach and I'll rent it again.
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.
