It is a quiet residential, beach side neighborhood. There is a nice beach 2 minutes walk from the property. Close by there are several bars and restaurants and many more a little further out in all directions.
There is a bus stop about four minutes walk from property. The heart of Condado is a 20 minute walk or a short bus ride. There is plenty of parking out front-I recommend renting a car. It is nice way to see all of the island and metro area. The airport is a 5 minute cab ride-very close.

As of Jan 2014 we no longer provide bikes. This studio is part of a family home. It is located in a quiet neighborhood. There are no loud parties or gatherings allowed. No non paying guest allowed overnight. This is a studio that we use for our family also. Please treat the apartment with respect, return everything that you borrow. Please help us to conserve energy and keep our prices low, when you leave the studio, please turn off all lights and A/C.
There is no phone land line. The Studio only accommodates two people enjoy!
Everything was perfect, Mike has everything set and organized. The studio is nice, has everything you need in the kitchen. I would have expected a bigger table, but overall was great experience. Thank you Mike!
This studio apartment was perfect for my husband and I. Mike and Tanya were very prompt in answering our questions about their property. The space was very clean, stocked with supplies, and beach chairs and towels were provided. The AC and wifi worked well. We really liked the neighborhood. We were in walking distance of restaurants and Ocean Park beach. We also stayed in downtown San Juan while we were in PR, and didn't like the city life as well as the quiet and safe solitude of this studio apt. When we wanted to go into the city, it was only a 5 minute drive. Also 10 minute drive to the airport. We will definitely stay here again!
Great place to stay. Easily within the boundaries of where you want to be without the hassle of dealing with major traffic or tourist. Great use if amenities that came in handy. Highly recommend if you want a place to put your head since we were gone most days.
The studio was nice and cozy and my son was comfortable and that was the most important thing for me. Everything was clean and comfortable, and we genuinely enjoyed our stay. Mike was even kind enough to let me stay a few hours extra to make sure we could shower and change after going to the beach before our flight. The location is great as well, you are close enough to everything but far enough not to get caught up in the touristy ambience.
Description was accurate, the apartment literally cozy. Mike and Tanya left us cold bottles of water, soda, and beer in the fridge which was great since we didn't check in until a day of wandering old San Juan and were thirsty.
The apartment was a little on the small side but given its location it didn't really matter. Getting in was easy and the instructions were clear. Shower was nice, and AC was great. Plenty of towels, and paper towels. Cable TV.
Best part there was ALWAYS parking out front which made it that much better.
For the money this is your best option in San Juan -- we would definitely recommend it! Thanks Mike and Tanya!
Mike was very responsive throughout the planning of our trip and upon arrival. The studio was small but clean, good for a couple. As the listing says, you definitely need to rent a car, even just to get around San Juan. The studio is very close to the beach at Ocean Park, which is beautiful. The only issue we had during our stay was the lowered water pressure by the local government (Puerto Rico is experiencing a drought), which left us with a drip for 1.5 days. The reduction itself was out of the host's control, but we didn't receive any notice that it would be happening. One taxi driver told us that each neighborhood is notified regarding the rationing ahead of time, and, with some anticipation, we would have bought a few gallons of water for a sponge bath. Overall, a great place to stay if you have a rental car!
I apologize about the about water rationing issue. We were supposedly in area exempt from water rationing- because of which reservoir services us- plus we have a 400 gallon back up cistern. The first water rationing to our area came during your stay and caught us both by surprise. I apologize. We are adding additional capacity to our cistern and each studio now has 5 gallons of 'emergency' water.
Mike and Tanya was very responsive with questions. They arranged it so that I can check in myself without any issues. As for the place, it is as described; close to the Ocean beach, in the vicinity of Condado which is fancy part of city with casinos, and bars.
The neighborhood can be a bit loud periodically from passing cars playing music, at night, especially on the weekends, but it comes with visiting Puerto Rico, where even Church activity involves music playing from numerous big speakers on cars.
Only advice, which is not about Mike's place, is to rent a car. Puerto Rico has a lot to offer in different parts of the island.
Overall, it is a good place.
