About the property

Comfy Remodeled 1 Bedroom Apt With Outdoor Terrace

Great location! Really urban location with a garden. Walking distance to everything in Miramar. Close to Condado and Old San Juan. Located on the first floor of a small, quiet 3 floor building, typical of the Miramar Arts District, this apartment has 11ft high ceilings, big windows, air condition units in bedroom and living area, an outdoor terrace, and private parking. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, and ample storage space. The apartment sleeps two. Kitchen is fully equipped with coffee maker, microwave, fridge and washer/dryer. Free wifi. Parking spot for a small car.

The private patio space is great for relaxing. You can enjoy the beauty of the trees that surround it and the vegetation and flowers inside.

Miramar is a great and lively neighborhood. It is famous for its restaurants, coffee shops, cinema, art and music and so close to the beach, Condado and Old San Juan. Easy public transportation, taxi or Uber available. There are over 14 great restaurants/bars walking distance from the apartment.

It is also very close to Condado (walking distance) and Old San Juan (5 min. in car or public transportation). It is a very popular neighborhood that appeals to young and old alike because of the many things to do and visit.

And best of all, everything is walking distance: the supermarket, the drugstore, the post office, UPS store, banks, deli, coffee shops, bars, restaurants, hotels, convention center. So if you come for business or for pleasure, you have all you need close by.

During the day, walk to the beach (15 minutes), walk or take the bus to Old San Juan or El Condado... ! And, in the evening walk to one of best movie theaters of the metropolitan area or have a great dinner or just enjoy the music and some drinks in one of the bars, hotels or lounges. Also, if you like art, you will find art galleries and museums close by, too.

The Urban Garden is perfect for a getaway vacation! Artists, travelers, writers, families and business people are welcome. Just steps from the bus stop, bike paths, and the Puerto Rico Convention Center. Close to the Condado area and beaches, water sports in the Condado Lagoon. This is definitely your best choice in Miramar. A must see!

About Lourdes

Get to know me and my work. Google Sofia Maldonado or visit my site. sofiamaldonado com

Lourdes purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Lourdes chose San Juan

Miramar! what a great place to live in! It literally means looking at the sea. It is synonym of tropical breeze. It is close to the beach, to Old San Juan, to Santurce and Condado. All is walking distance or just a short bus or bike ride away. I am an artist and in Miramar I can walk to museums, galleries, art shops, restaurants, bars, pizzerias, cinemas. It has great public transportation that connects you to all these places, too. Even the train is easy to take from here. The apartment? I fell in love with this apartment immediately. It is situated in one of the best streets in Miramar, lined with trees. There are two big trees right in front of my terrace. The building is one of the old mansions of Miramar that was transformed into a condo in the 80s. The ceilings are high. It has arches! I have worked hard remodeling it and now it is just the way I like it.

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is unique! It has a great outdoor space with beautiful vegetation and a great breeze.

Also, Miramar is a very hip neighborhood. It is famous for its restaurants, coffee shops, cinema, art and music. There are over 14 great restaurants/bars walking distance from my apartment. Here are a some of them:

Melanzanna (italian), Pizza Birra (italian), Abreu's Wine Cellar (spanish), Casita Miramar (puertorican), Café Miramar (puertorican), Lima (peruvian), La Jaquita Baya (puertorican), Papillon Bistro (french/provençal), Soda (artesanal), Bistro 606 (french), Augusto's Cuisine (international), La Pradera (puertorican), Osaka (Japanese), Bartola (mexican), Los Pinos (24/7) (puertorican).

All these places are so, so, close. No need for a car to move around.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I think I was the first person who stayed in this apartment after it was remodeled. The description is very accurate. It is in a nice street close to restaurants and all. I highly recommend La Casita de Miramar and Froyo (on Ponce de Leon ave.) for dessert. The Casita has very nice typical puertorican food and it's right on the same street as the apt. The "Playa del Perro" as they call it and the laguna del Condado promenade is walking distance away (great for jogging). The apartment was spotless. Sofia was a great host and communication with her was easy. There are two a/c units that keep the apt cool but we usually had the terrace door open and were in and out all the time. The jewel is the little terrace. Great to have lunch or a romantic dinner outside. wifi, cable, washer-dryer. Oh! one last thing: public transportation is very accessible. There is parking but we had no car.

A few days to end a 3 week vacation

  • 4 of 5

We were able to find the location with ease. Parking was a bit of a challenge; usually ended up a block or so away. It would have been nice to have a spot in the gated parking on site. Getting in was a bit of a challenge. We were to call and be buzzed in; buzzer wasn't working correctly. I believe the young lady that magically appeared was Sarah to let us in. Then we had trouble with the key less entry number. With enough attempts it finally worked. The apartment was quaint. It had what you needed, especially for a few days stay. Overall it was quiet; there was a smoke detector some where in a hallway that needed its battery changed, it kept chirping and was easily heard in the kitchen/living area. It could not be heard in the bedroom. It was a nice quiet sleep after being awakened by chickens the last 2 1/2 weeks in our last place at 3am!! Many wonderful restaurants within walking distance....along with a movie theater and grocery store. Furniture to sit and watch tv was very minimal...would have been nice to have a chair or two. The enclosed patio area was very peaceful and happy with the plants....would have been nice to sit and read or have morning coffee/evening wine out there....just too hot. Overall, a good quiet neighborhood with plenty to walk to. Would stay again.

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the garden apartment while in San Juan for a conference at the Condado Plaza Hilton. I enjoyed the location---safe neighborhood, close to many businesses and restaurants---and it was an easy 15 minute walk to Ashford Avenue. The apartment itself was delightful, especially the two high-powered air conditioning units and the renovated shower/bathroom. I thought this rental was a great value for the price and came appointed with everything I needed for my brief time in Puerto Rico. I would definitely stay here again!

Nice Apt.

  • 5 of 5

Cute apt. with nice art work, patio and remodeled bath. Walking distance to restaurants and grocery store. Only issue was having to park on street, often full in front of house but space was available around the corner.

Wow wow wow

Sofia was amazing!! She helped us find all the neatest places on the island and really went out of her way to make our honeymoon amazing!! This is the perfect place to stay in San Juan, it is an easy walk to moat of the big arractions and areas but just enough out of the tourist area that it is affordable!!! The garden patio is perfect for sipping drinks in the evening or breakfast in the am and the whole place felt like home!! We definitely cant wait to go back!!
