The stay was excellent. Great area of town and the facilities were wonderful. We would highly recommend staying at Mike and Tanya's condo.
The condo was very comfortable for us. It felt like home after a very short time. Having the ability to walk right out on the beach, and also jump right into the pool was so nice. Having a dishwasher and washer and dryer were amenities we really appreciated. Also the location in relation to San Juan, and the rest of the island is excellent. We did day trips to either side of the island with ease. Also the are some tasty restaurants nearby. Overall a great stay!
We just returned from a truly wonderful week at Mike & Tanya's condo. The condo is exactly as pictured (even better actually). We have two young children (6 years old and 10 mos) and the condo was perfect. There was a highchair for our son and I was able to rent a portable crib from a local company that dropped it off and picked it up with the guard at the complex. If you are traveling with young children, this is perfect.
As others have described, it was safe, clean, and wonderful. The patio opens right up to the big common yard and playground, which was perfect for my daughter (but not noisy). The pool is clean and refreshing, almost within eyesight of the condo's patio. The condo had an extremely helpful notebook full of information about the area, where to eat, maps, a guide book, etc. etc. The parking spot was very convenient and the gate system was easy to use. Mike was very responsive with any questions.
There were two beach chairs, beach towels, a gazillion DVDs, snorkeling masks, all sorts of appliances (blender, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer, hair dryer). The welcome bottle of wine and couple of beers and waters was a very nice touch.
It's not a huge place but the tall ceilings made it feel quite spacious and cool, and with the patio and common space right out the door, it really feels much bigger. We only used the AC at night. The bedroom has a queen bed, which was very comfortable although it is a little tight on the sides. The pull out sofa had an air mattress pillow top which was very comfortable and worked perfectly for our daughter.
The guards were almost like having a concierge, they helped us with directions, getting taxis, takeout, etc.
Also, everyone who we met in the complex was lovely. It's low key and pretty quiet. We met a mix of families and retirees and our daughter quickly made friends with a couple of other children on the playground.
For those traveling with small children, the only thing I would mention is that the beach in front of the condo is beautiful but the ocean (at least in February) was pretty rough--too rough for young kids to go in by themselves. When the tide is high, there is not much beach to sit on but the beach is cleaned regularly and gorgeous when the tide is a little lower. We primarily used the pool and then took a couple day trips to a really calm public beach at Luquillo. That's not to say that for adults, this wouldn't be perfect. We still went swimming and the water was incredibly warm (warmer even than the pool!). The neighborhood is safe and quiet. We regularly walked to nearby restaurants for dinner.--(I will mention to the hosts that the nearest pizza place mentioned in their welcome materials, Conde, appears to have closed recently.)
I look forward to our next stay!
We loved Mike and Tanya's place. The view was gorgeous, the location was perfect. The people working the front desk were very helpful. The condo had everything we would need, and there was a book left by them that gave us some great suggestions. We walked to ocean park beach and Kasaltas bakery almost everyday. An easy walk East to Isla Verde had plenty of good food and grocery options. We look forward to the next time we are in PR, and look forward to staying at Mike and Tanya's!! Restaurant suggestions would definitely be Ceviche House on isla verde and Jose Enrique's in the plazita.
Excellent communication up to the day we arrived. The place was just the right size for the four of us. Excellent service at the reception area and friendly staff.
The complex itself is super with friendly neighbours, the picture of the pool does not do justice, the pool is big and very clean loved it!
The location is great also with many local shops small and big. Would highly recommend and if going back would definately stay again in one of Mike and Tanyas places.
This my 2nd time staying at Mike & Tanya's condo. Me & both my children love it. Large pool, direct beach access, and out door play area can't be beat. The updated Apartment is always clean, and never lacks anything. I will stay there again in the spring 2015
The host had a welcome notebook which covered nearly everything needed to make our stay a pleasant one. There was a problem with the television which the host fixed quickly. The unit is an oceanfront one. It is comfortable, nicely furnished, well equipped. I would like to return for another visit.
