I am so glad we found this little bungalow! The location was phenomenal because we didn't want to stay in the commercialized area of San Juan. John the owner was a great host with a sense of humor! He gave us tips and pointers on places to visit. The apartment is located about 30 minutes from the airport, and about 10-15 minutes from El Yunque National Forest. The beach is a quick stroll away. There are grocery stores, Walgreens, and lots of restaurants in walking distance.
I was honestly nervous because I have never booked a vacation rental before. This was an awesome experience! The apartment is very secure, so no need to feel like your belongings are in jeopardy. There is a gated parking lot and you need a special key to access the building, and the elevator.
The apartment is well equipped with everything you could need. We didn't cook at all, but it is stocked with dishes, pots, and utensils. As far as beach-going, there are beach towels, beach chairs, and even a kayak. You can hear the ocean once you open the balcony door. It is perfect as a home base as you explore and discover Puerto Rico!
I can't speak enough on what a great stay this was! Be sure to eat at the Brass Cactus restaurant downstairs. Order the cheesy spinach dip....yum!!!
Thanks for a great stay John!

I've stayed here three times now I believe, maybe four. John has always been very easy to deal with. The condo is on the small side but well equipped. It will sleep four but is ideal for two single people or a couple. The location is great for a "base camp" while on northeast part of the island. It is convenient to beaches (one block) restaurants, bars, El Yunque and isn't a horrible drive to OSJ. Fajardo is just a short drive away. Be aware that on weekends the bar next door can be a little loud but it never bothered me. Overall, great location, very clean, well laid out and equipped nicely. There are beach chairs, a cooler, boogie boards even a kayak. The kitchen is small but has all the necessary items.
