About Mariano Rossi

I am an Economist that has been working in the telecommunications industry for the last 15 years. I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina but the company where I work since I graduated gave me the opportunity to live in many places such as the United States and Italy. I resided in Rome 4 years before I was transferred to Puerto Rico. The beauty of the island captivated us so much that we decided to move forward and get this gorgeous house just steps from the best beach in San Juan. My wife Valeria, journalist and professional photographer, has a magic eye on design and great taste. Along with the experience of living in the most ancient city of the western hemisphere, we decided to upgrade and remodel the house while keeping almost intact the historic style of the residence. We are pleased to offer this gorgeous house for our VRBO & Home Away guests. We will be delighted to welcome you to enjoy our magic place in the center of San Juan, just steps from the beach.

Mariano Rossi purchased this house in 2010

Beautiful and Relaxing home

  • 5 of 5

My first impression walking into the home.....Gorgeous!!! Was very happy that each room had it's own air conditioner. Everyone could sleep in comfort. The salt water pool was beautiful and we swam everyday. We enjoyed sitting out by the pool for breakfast and in the evening. Had a very large table and lots of chairs and a couch ...everyone was comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed and a washer and dryer. The beach was a very short walk....maybe two minutes and was not crowded. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. The location of this property is in a very secure neighborhood. The property was very clean and well maintained. The description was accurate. I highly recommend this home.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just stayed in this house for spring break. The house was fantastic! Kids and adults loved playing in the pool, the beach was a block away, and we could walk to restaurants and a delicious bakery. Mariano was so helpful and quick to answer questions. He went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed and gave some advice on things to do on the island... He even provided a high chair and pack n play for our little man. He had everything you could possibly need at the house for the beach and for hanging out at the house...he even had hair dryers and bathroom supplies. It was great to only have to worry about packing clothes. We would definitely stay here again next time we're in Puerto Rico!!! We also loved the house's location. We were a short drive from the airport and Old San Juan and only an hour from the rainforest and the beautiful Loquillo Beach...all of which I would highly recommend visiting.

Amazing house in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely perfect for my girls getaway. Plenty of space, the house was decorated beautifully and was in a prime location. The house also provided everything you would need - beach towels, aloe, bug spray, hair dryers, etc. Me and my 9 best friends had a fabulous time and Marianno was so easy to work with! I already want to go back!

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Mariano is a fantastic host. This was our first trip to Puerto Rico, and we were traveling with a very large group. Mariano made us feel right at home from the start. The house is perfectly located, very close to the airport, OSJ, and several fantastic restaurants. We had ample space for our group and the pool was our favorite part. I highly suggest this home for anyone vacationing in PR!

Perfect vacation home for our family

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have asked for a better house for us to stay in on our family vacation. It was very clean and well-maintained, exactly as the pictures show in the listing. There were 8 adults and 5 kids (all under 9) and although it was a little crowded for sleeping arrangements, Mariano supplied us with plenty of air mattresses for the kids to sleep on, and all adults slept comfortably in beds. The bedrooms were large enough to fit queen air mattresses in and still be able to walk around. With the large kitchen and grill we were able to easily cook meals. The pool was perfect for swimming in the afternoons, as most of the pool was shaded from the sun by the afternoon. And the best part was the proximity to the beach. You are literally steps from the beach. On most days before noon, we had the beach to ourselves. Clean light sand beach with bright blue waters. The waves were big enough for the kids to boogey board on, with the 2 boards that Mariano provided us. The kids also enjoyed the ping pong table and bags game. We walked almost daily to Walgreens, or the mini-mart on the corner. There are tons of restaurants within walking distance, even for our 2 and 3 year olds. Mariano also provides 2 bikes and a very interesting scooter. One of the bikes had a flat tire, so we rode a bike and the scooter to the grocery store one afternoon...the looks we received while riding the scooter made the trip, for sure! Although I didn't get to meet Mariano while we were there, he checked in with us multiple times through email to ensure we had everything that we needed. I would recommend this property to anyone, it was great. And if my family and I travel to Puerto Rico again, we will DEFINITELY be staying with Mariano! Thanks for sharing your home with us and allowing us to make all of the great family memories!

Amazingly beautiful house and location

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything you could possibly need and more.

The location was perfect for going to the beach, shopping and eating.

Mariano stopped by to make sure we were doing ok and was responsive when we had any questions.

I would definitely be returning and will recommend this place to my friends and family.

Would not recommend going to Kasalta despite it's high ratings because there is a language barrier and the service is extremely slow and the regular food (excluding sweets) was not very good. The pizza place across the street was much better on all aspects.
