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 enjoy sharing the experience with our guests.

Carmen Bassin purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Carmen Bassin chose Ocean Park

Ocean Park is one of the oldest and more established neighborhoods in San Juan. It runs parallel to the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and our house is just 50 feet from the best beach in San Juan. We are a few blocks from all the urban conveniences, quiet and safe, convenient, spacious and comfortable. It is a wonderful lifestyle and ideal 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 to many restaurants, bars, convenience stores, pharmacies, grocery stores, etc. Uber is very popular and easy to hail if you have the app.

Tourists and locals mingle at the many restaurants and bars within just blocks of the house but our street is quiet. Plus we are 20 steps from the best beach in San Juan where Pamela's Guest house is located. They offer lounge chair and umbrella rentals plus beachside bar and food service.

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.

Relaxing, authentic experience steps from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 loved Casa Marquesa! It combines the best of local living with the added benefit of having the beach a few steps away! The beach was wonderful, clean, safe, and our children loved the surf. Our last night, my husband and I ate on the beach at Pamela's (amazing food!), and walked back barefoot to home.

We are Texans, used to the heat, but have always lived in air-conditioning. It was amazing how quickly we adjusted to the fresh air and breezes that flow through the house, even in the July heat! The bedrooms still have A/C, so we were able to cool down and still hunker under the covers during the night. We all miss the fresh air now that we are back home.

Casa Marquesa has been lovingly restored. The original tile floors charmingly change from room to room, the furnishings and beds are very comfortable, and the kitchen is efficient.

Carmen and Hunter were wonderful, helpful hosts. They steered us to the right restaurants and tours, helped us out with a luggage issue, and were quick to bring in some needed items. They provide beach chairs for the beach, as well as making sure both patios have plenty of seating. We were both welcomed on arrival and sent off. A few weeks before arriving, I asked Carmen about finding a local chef to cook us a traditional dinner. She found us Gato, who turned out to be an amazing cook who taught me on our first night how to make some traditional PR dishes, as well as filled us in on local living. It was the best meal of our trip and made us immediately *know* we were in Puerto Rico.

Ocean Park is a great little neighborhood. We were able to walk around to the various restaurants, as well as walk to the nearby Walgreens. There is a Supermax a little bit further down the road, but they will provide transportation back with your groceries, something our first Uber driver didn't tell us about. :) Speaking of Uber, it was super easy to use and we only rented a car one day to go El Yunque.

I really can't think of a better location in Puerto Rico!

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!

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.
