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

Beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We had nine people stay in Mariano's house for five nights to attend a wedding in Old San Juan. From the beginning Mariano was extremely easy to get ahold of, and there if we needed anything. The house was equipped with everything we needed. There was an abundance of beach and bath towels, kitchen supplies, and recreational items that we could take to the beach (boogie boards, footballs, games, bikes, etc.). Everything was very clean and the yard and pool were beautiful. The gate and door access made it very easy for people to come and go, and we always felt extremely safe. We were able to park our rental cars in the driveway and had easy gate access. The location is very convenient, only a 5-10 minute Uber drive to Condado or La Placita. About 15 minutes to Old San Juan. We could walk to a beautiful beach in about 2 minutes. The outdoor grill was very convenient, we used it almost daily. If I had to say one negative thing about the house it would be the low water pressure in some of the showers - but not sure this is something that can be controlled. Overall I give this property a five star rating, and would definitely come back! I also recommend taking the 1 hour drive to Fajardo and doing the snorkeling day trip to Flamenco Beach with East Island Excursions. It was the best memory of our week in Puerto Rico. Thanks Mariano!

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this gorgeous house and Mariano. The house was perfect. It was equipped with everything you could wish for. The house is located just a few steps away from a beautiful beach. Mariano was a wonderful host. He promptly responded to all questions and requests. On our next trip to San Juan, we would love to stay at Mariano's house again. :)

Amazing House, Great Location - Couldn't Ask for More!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property for a guys group trip to celebrate my 40th birthday. Prior to and after our arrival, Mariano provided a wealth of information regarding the house and the area. The house was everything it was advertised to be and more. The home is incredibly clean and very spacious. The kitchen is well-equipped. The bedrooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable. The bathrooms were clean and modern. The master bath is equipped with both a large shower and soaking jet tub (and a TV!). The outdoor space is large and clean. The salt water pool is amazing, as is the outdoor kitchen space which we used often. There was lots of beach equipment (chairs, a wagon, boogie boards, etc) located in the garage. There's also a great ping pong table we rolled into the driveway to play!

The beach is a super quick walk. We strolled on the beach during the day and at night and always felt safe. Old San Juan is a quick Uber or cab ride away.

I can't recommend this property enough. We look forward to returning soon!

PERFECT HOME

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for making my family and I's vacation a memorable one. Your home was simply perfect. From location, to proximity to the beach to how the home was stocked for our comfortability, we were beyond pleased. In fact, we are thinking of making it an annual family getaway. A must stay!

Gorgeous house steps from the beach, says it all.

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful, the location, ideal, one block from the beach. The house was equipped with everything necessary for an enjoyable tropical holiday. A ten minute ride to Old San Juan, an hour ride to some of the best lechon asado (pig roasted on a spit) the location of the house is ideal.

Mariano was responsive to any questions or problems, our messages were answered immediately. Our stay was a wonderful one (all ten of us).

Amazing home !

  • 5 of 5

This place is nothing short of amazing. The home is absolutely gorgeous and the location couldn't be better which is walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The only thing better then the property was the owners customer service. I have stayed at other homes in San Juan but this will be the place I will stay at for now on.
