My friend and I were planning a girls' trip for two when we decided to book an AirBnB to save on costs. The original place that I had booked (the one listed here for me to review) is not something I can actually review since I did not stay there, and we were only informed as we arrived on the property. We were upgraded to an ocean front suite. While it did still have two beds, it was not exactly what we signed up for. However, my disappointment quickly disappeared as we stepped foot into our studio apartment for the week. It was a lovely, cute accommodation and worked perfectly for what my friend and I had in mind. There were still two beds (the bed turned into a pull-out couch), and we woke up to a gorgeous ocean sunrise every morning. The accommodation itself made me feel like I was on a romantic getaway, even though it was just a girls' trip! The intimate setting and the quiet space made for a lovely vacation. While my friend and I did not spend that much time in the actual accommodation, getting back to our accommodation every evening was easy and it like home whenever we arrived.
The location is extremely ideal, as it is adjacent to the beach. There are a few cute restaurants within walking distance, a lovely bakery/deli in the area (Kasalta, highly recommend checking it out), Walgreens (for convenient low-key grocery items). Uber is helpful in taking you to the other parts of San Juan, although my friend and I did plenty of walking since the weather was absolutely spectacular during our week down there. The beach was actually not as busy as we expected, but it's also not the most private beach, so if you are looking for a resort type of experience, this would not be the place for you. My friend and I enjoyed ourselves, nonetheless, and we really integrated ourselves within the local culture.
José was very prompt with our check-in time, and check-out was extremely easy as well. When I had questions during the week regarding some of the amenities, José was quick to respond via text. I would recommend this place to a friend in a heartbeat, and I would absolutely stay here again. If booking this accommodation, I would ask ahead of time to make sure you are getting exactly what you booked. My friend and I are flexible (and we did receive an upgrade), but I know that isn't always the case. In any case, this accommodation is excellent and José is an excellent host.
