The Space

The La Luna unit sleeps up to 4 adults, 2 on a queen bed and 2 on a futon sofa. This unit has a full kitchen, plus extras such as an Apple Computer with HDTV display. This is one of 6 units at Coqui Del Mar Guest House. Stay in the privacy of your own private apartment with the comfort of daily maid service and on site management. Use amenities that we provide free of charge, such as WiFi, bicycles, boogie boards, beach chairs or coolers, etc...And share the courtyard and mingle with other guests...There you can bar-b-que on our gas grill. Staying at Coqui Del Mar is not like a cookie cutter hotel, but you are not stranded on your own either. Need advice on a tour or help with some local issues? Just see our on site management.

This is one of several units available at Coqui Del Mar Guesthouse. All of our units are in the same private building in Ocean Park, very close to Isla Verde. All units are private units with private entrances and each has its own private bathroom(s), free WiFi, AirConditioning, in room safes, and Cable TV. Washer and dryer are located on the property and free usage can be coordinated through the on site managers. Other amenities that are free and can be checked out our bicycles, boogie boards, and other beach items, such as coolers and chairs, and we are constantly updating and improving. We also love guests suggestions and feedback. Our location is literally 3 minutes walking to the nearest beach. We are a $15 taxi from SJU international airport, and there are buses that go to Old San Juan 2 blocks from our location. Yet you will reside in a friendly neighborhood setting and get a taste of real Puerto Rico, as opposed to spending more and staying in a hotel. One of the beautiful things of our property as well is the on site management. You will not find this kind of help at many of the apartments listed on this site. Our on site management call this their home and know the neighborhood, restaurants, and travel tips to make your trip the most enjoyable. You can read our reviews on tripadvisor, and hopefully we will have more reviews here as well soon. Thank you!

  • My family and I had a great time here. It is located only minutes from the beach, with easy access to Old San Juan and other sites in the area. The staff was wonderful and very responsive. There were also toys and other beach items that made our experiences that much better. We would highly recommend this place to anyone!

  • We really enjoyed the privacy and personal touch at Coqui del Mar. Noyda and Elsa were accommodating and approachable. We had the unfortunate experience of having our return flight cancelled, but were relieved to find that our room was still available. Also, Noyda and Elsa allowed us to store our luggage there after check out. The La Luna studio (with kitchen) allowed us to make our breakfast each morning, and to relax on the futon at night. The courtyard is cozy, the other guests were warm and friendly, the beach is moments away. Restaurants in the neighborhood are good. We loved the smoothie making man on Ocean Park Beach. Also , we made use of the bikes- in good working condition and easy to access. Overall, it was a super and relaxing experience!

  • Very nice place to stay during our vacation. The room was fully equipped and very clean and tidy. Lovely garden. We could borrow the beach chairs and umbrella, which brought us great convenience. The house manager was very friendly and helpful. My family are highly satisfied.

  • Excellent stay!! we enjoyed our stay at La Luna (Coqui Del Mar). Perfect location; Noyda and Neil were the best. They were there when we needed them and they even let us use the laundry room.
    Highly recommended and we will definitely be back.

  • My boyfriend and I stayed at La Luna. The apartment has everything we needed. Our home away from home! The area is very safe and convenient. A few minutes away from the airport, and walking distance from some great restaurants and bars. My boyfriend and I rode the bikes they provided for free to Isla Verde and Condado. Old San Juan is not that far either about $17 by cab. The decor is romantic, The bathroom is a bit small and needs some refurbishing. There are beach accessories available if you did not have your own eg. snorkel, boogie boards etc. We did not have housekeeping services for the 4 days we were there, but we're not messy people, and we can always get fresh towels from the laundry room so it was fine. This is our second time in PR, we love it there so we'll definitely go back, and will absolutely stay at Coqui Del Mar again!

  • Awesome place, the studio has everything you need. Very well decorated and the a/c is ice cold! Check in was a breeze and the staff was very professional.

    The courtyard was great and we used it every night!

  • Coqui del mar = PARADISE! This is the real San Juan experience. Noya and her team are unreal, they even hosted a happy hour for all guests on Saturday night with out of this world piña coladas! Where else would you receive such treatment. All the staff was always available to offer suggestions on places to eat, stories and history of the city, directions, and always made us smile when we encountered them. This was my first airbnb experience and I was a bit nervous at first but as soon as I walked through the gate with the easy to find instructions and directions I knew I had nothing to worry about for the duration of my trip. There is a super market 6 min away from the property so to save money go there and use the BBQ! The beach is LITERALLY 30 seconds from the property and on the weekends it's packed all day,a great way to make friends with the super nice locals. After a long day out on the complimentary bikes they offer its so relaxing to come home fora dip in their fabulous hot tub! If your not from USA their courtesy phones are a blessing to call cabs and arrange your adventures. If your going to the bio bay or el yunique you most definitely will want to rent a car. We were able to find a great deal for $30 split between 5 people it was virtually free. I will recommend you book at coqui del mar ASAP before someone else does. This property is a gem and with all the perks with it getting around and relaxing are effortless. Biggest suggestion would be to avoid the cabs as they can be quite pricy take the bikes out instead. It's a great scenic route, you get a great tan, and it's FREE. The welcome packages in the suites are a great help as well.

    PARADISE
    ENJOY FRIENDS!

  • I'm almost hesitant to to review La Luna and Coqui del Mar because it was such a wonderful place to stay, I don't want to compete with anyone when I return to San Juan in October.

    Noyda and Neal were fantastic, answering any and all of our questions. Between them and the incredibly comprehensive custom guidebook our only problem was not having enough time to do everything we wanted.

    The location is fantastic - a grocery store, alcohol and great food are all minutes away, and the main beach area is only a block away. We went to the beach every day, and this was as busy as it got:
    (website hidden)(phone number hidden)/sizes/l/in/photostream/

    The unit itself was perfect - ceiling fans and a giant (quiet) air conditioner, large fridge and more cookware than I have at home. In addition to pots and pans there is also a microwave, full-sized fridge, toaster, blender, crock pot and a few more appliances I missed.

    This is in a residential neighborhood, which might not suit some people, but was exactly what we wanted. It was quiet and safe, but still close to Old San Juan and Condado. You're a $15 (10-15 minute) taxi ride away from Old San Juan, or about an hour drive from the rainforest (a standard sized rental car is about $15-$30 per day).

About
Saludos, Bonjour, Hello! I am from California, and spent many years in the Coast Guard. I have been living in Europe the last few years (currently in Paris, France). I recently completed a 9 month cooking school through Le Cordon Bleu, so if you are renting my spare room in Paris, I'd love to provide breakfast (unless I'm traveling...but there are so many local options anyways). I love exploring Paris, Europe, and I guess travel in general, and I've found AirBnB a great way to do it. I've found a great, very open and fairly spacious (for Paris standards) apartment (after one year of searching) that I rent either as a 1 bedroom (when I am here) or 2 bedroom private apartment (when I am traveling). If you are looking at the Puerto Rico properties on my listing, it's basically a guest house (currently #1 on TripAdvisor) and there are on site managers that will not leave you feeling like you are abandoned on the island. They call Coqui del Mar home and will be happy to help you with recommendations, travel tips, or anything to make your stay more memorable. There are 6 rentable units within the same property. If you have any questions prior to booking either Puerto Rico or Paris, please let me know. Thank you! Sincerely, Rob - owner, Coqui Del Mar guest house
