About Carmen Bassin

We bought and renovated this property in 2012 and either live here or rent both floors. It's a wonderful house, incredible location and we love sharing it with our guests.

Carmen Bassin purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Carmen Bassin chose San Juan

Ocean Park is one of the oldest and more established neighborhoods in San Juan. It runs parallel to the beach and the Atlantic Ocean and our house is just 50 feet from the beach. We are just blocks away from all the urban conveniences. Quiet and safe, convenient, spacious and comfortable it is the perfect location for your vacation.

What makes this apartment unique

Our quiet Ocean Park neighborhood is one of the oldest in the metropolitan San Juan area and yet within walking distance from all urban conveniences. Tourists and locals all mingle together at the many restaurants and bars within just blocks of the house but our street is quiet and safe so avoids all the noise of McCleary and Loiza Sts.

The Atlantic Ocean is a few seconds walk from the front door and the famous Kasalta Bakery with it's delicious quesitos, sandwiches and Puerto Rican coffee is less than a five minute walk from your doorstep. You can choose to dine on the beach at Pamela's Numero Uno or walk to any one of a variety of restaurants just blocks away.

Our house is a perfect base from which to explore San Juan and the rest of the island or just to hang out and enjoy a string of beach days. You will love it here.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Marquesa is great! The neighborhood was quiet and clean and felt very safe as we saw security patrolling very often. The apartment is very lovely and spacious. There were 6 of us and with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms we had more than enough room. It was clean and comfy and having air conditioning was key as the temperature was warm and humid. Being so close to the beach was great and it almost felt like our own private beach as it was not crowded at all. The apartment was within walking distance of some great restaurants and we found using Uber super convenient going to locations that required driving. Carmen was very easy to communicate and a pleasure to deal with; both Carmen and Hunter made us feel very welcome and we hope to come back soon!

Well-kept and roomy ocean-front amenity-rich property

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled to be greeted by Carmen and Hunter as our family of six arrived on a Saturday evening. After a thorough tour of the facility we grabbed the provided beach chairs and boogie boards and stepped out onto the gorgeous beach on the warm tropical Atlantic Ocean. Our four year old grandson absolutely fell in love with the beach; especially the waves. Carmen's restaurant recommendations were spot on. With her advice on where to go we spent two days in Old San Juan and another day exploring the Island of Puerto Rico. We meandered the highways of Puerto Rico to the Arecibo Radio Telescope and enjoyed learning about its history and getting closer to where and how the natives lived. We spent three full days and parts of every other day we were there enjoying the beaches. Carmen's facility was very comfortable and homey. It easily accommodated the six of us with three separate bedrooms, a dining room, kitchen/laundry and two balconies; one with an ocean view. We highly recommend this facility to anyone who wants a clean, safe, comfortable and roomy setting to enjoy the history and culture of Puerto Rico.

Fit the Bill

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our stay! We were comfortable with our large group at Carmen and Hunter's home. It fit all our needs as a group of 8. It was a great location with beautiful outdoor spaces. It's close to many restaurants, bars, and shops all while remaining residential. We hope to come back here again and we would definitely recommend La Casa Marquesa!

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

Carmen and Hunter made us feel right at home from the start. This property is just steps from the nicest beach in San Juan. There are many good bars and restaurants within walking distance of the apartment. The apartment is well appointed, very clean and spacious. Although we did not spend a lot of time inside it was always nice to come back to this beautiful home. Some highlights of the the apartment are: warm outdoor shower, boogie boards, football, beach paddle ball, 2 patios, quality bedding and towels and open and airy layout of the rooms. We will definitely return someday!

An ideal location!! This large, beautiful and comfortable 2nd floor apartment in our Spanish villa sits on a safe and quiet corner of the wonderful neighborhood of Ocean Park which runs parallel to the Atlantic Ocean.

A 20 second walk lands you on the nicest beach in San Juan while a less than five minute walk gets you to over 6 great restaurants. A few minutes more will get you to several others.

We are a gated community with 24 hour security guards.

We have excellent fiber optic delivered WiFi.
