  • Great experience. Margarita was very helpful and warm. We would definitely consider staying here again. Gorgeous place and extremely private. Very well decorated.

  • This is our first experience with Airbnb. I have to say it has been a wonderful stay at this cute apartment. The apartment looks even better than the pictures! It's so cozy and make us feel like home all the time. I remember when we went to Vieques and stayed one night, the next day on our way back we were saying: Arh we are going home (aka this apartment)! Margarita was really helpful and patiently explain where we should see and eat at old San Juan. All the places she recommended are great! She also put bread/milk/eggs in the fridge when we arrived which was such a pleasant surprise for us!

    We wish we could stay longer. Five stars experience! Highly recommended! :)

  • This was our first experience with Airbnb and everything worked perfectly. The apartment was clean and tidy, fridge well stocked although we bought our own consumables but still, it was considerate having stuff in the fridge, towels and linens nice and fresh. No problems with check-in and out. Margarita was very helpful too. Beautiful property and the private interior garden is wonderful. Tastefully decorated and comfortable. Old San Juan is a small area so it is within easy walking distance of everything in Old San Juan. We had a good time. No problems at all.

  • This was our first experience with Airbnb and it was just amazing. OUr host Carlos was great to deal with and so was Margarita. Coordination was seamless right from the time of booking to the checkin.

    The Villa itself was amazing and so central. It was right in the heart of Old San Juan. We did not need a car for the duration of the stay and we just walked everywhere. The place was immaculate when we arrived. Clean bathrooms, linnen, sheets etc. The Kitchen was full stocked and there was beer, milk and other items that we were asked to use and not replenish them, which was a great gesture.

    We loved the courtyard in the villa. One can sit there reading a book and soak in the gorgeous sun.

    This was one of or best holidays and big thanks to Carlos and Margarita was making our stay so special.

  • Carlos's place was perfect! It's in a wonderful location and the apartment itself is very comfortable, with everything we needed for our five days in Viejo San Juan. Carlos and Margarita were welcoming and provided a great list of restaurants and places to explore.

  • I recently travelled to PR for my wedding in February and had the pleasure of staying at Carlos' place for the duration of my time there. Firstly, Carlos was a most gracious and accommodating host and left clear instructions regarding the use of his place. Secondly, this place is AWESOME! The photos online do not do justice to this beautiful indoor-outdoor space. The house was ALWAYS the perfect temperature and it was hardly necessary to use the A/C. It's proximity to all things good in Old San Juan, meant traversing the meandering streets at any hour was safe and convenient. Lastly, I would encourage anyone looking to save while traveling to PR to strongly consider this place. The reality is, my experience has been there are just a handful of truly decent hotels in Old San Juan (The Sheraton at Old San Juan and El Convento are the two I am most familiar with) - and these hotels come at a price! Carlos' place was by FAR considerably more affordable than staying at reputable hotel. Sure, it may be possible to find some accommodations that are close to Carlos' listed price, but I assure you none will have the cleanliness, relaxed and "at-home" feel Carlos' place affords. So, if you are looking to travel to Old San Juan affordably and be at the center of everything this wonderful city has to offer, this is the place to stay. In fact, my wife and I are hoping to return to PR later this year and without a doubt, this beautiful home will be at the top of the list for out accommodations when we return! Thanks Carlos for a wonderful experience and for making your home available to us!

  • This house is amazing. Reasonable price and great neighborhood. I would definitely return to Carlos' apartment and his on-site host Margarita was very helpful

  • Staying at carlos place was the highlight of our trip. It was wonderful!!!
    The house is neat,well maintained and centrally (email hidden) gives a complete feel of old San Juan. Everything was at walkable distance.

    We met 'Margarita', who handed over the keys to us. She was amazing!! She walked us through the house..Gave us details regarding all good restaurants, bars and coffee shops around. A very warm person..

    We loved our stay..I was kinda sad when we were leaving the house because 3 nights which we stayed was awesome:)

    There was a v tiny problem, not worth mentioning.. I somehow felt the AC in the room was not that good. Though it was working, it dint keep the room cool. May be this has to be checked..

    Overall, It was a great experience. Consider yourself lucky if the house is available for your dates!!

  • I must say I was pleasantly surprised upon my arrival!..Carlos' apt was better than I could have imagined. I really appreciate the thoughtfulness of the provided refreshments upon arrival as I had one heck of a morning and was exhausted by the time I reached his establishment.

    While I did not meet Carlos himself,(Margarita was his contact person) I must say she is ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! She was very detailed in showing me the apt and how everything works. she also went as far as highlighting great restaurants and things to see and do while in OSJ. I felt very very safe and secure.

    I stayed here with family and friends and everyone loved it!....it really is a great place! You will not be disappointed!

  • Carlos' villa is amazing the pictures don't do it justice! Even though we never meet Carlos he was in constant communication with us and checking in with Margarita was a breeze. Margarita gave great recommendations and insight from a locals perspective and lead us to bars and restaurants off the beaten path.

    The location of the villa is perfect. One block from the ocean and tucked away on a quiet residential street. You are walking distance (email hidden)ly nightlife scene and the more touristy area down the hill. The fridge was stocked with bagels and beverages upon arrival which was a thoughtful touch. In the bathroom we were provided with plenty of towels and necessities. There is laundry in the building which was a pleasant surprise. Helpful if you plan on outdoor excursions that leave you covered in mud. The private courtyard is so peaceful it was our favorite place to wind down with a few drinks after a day exploring Puerto Rico. We were sad to say goodbye and hope to visit again soon.
