A cozy studio, with a queen bed, full kitchen and own bath. Located on a pleasant shady residential street one block from the beach. Its it located in the Punta Las Marias area which is centrally located between the condado and isla verde areas-about 5 minutes from airport. Internet, cable and on street parking.
This studio is located adjacent to the owners home. It is newly furnished, all bedding, bed, and mattress are brand new. The apartment is very clean and furnished with all the comforts you need. Brand new A/C . It is within walking distance to grocery store, drug store , restaurants, bars, watersports schools, and public transportation. We provide the basic kitchen spices, olive oil, coffee. We also have an extensive DVD collection for your enjoyment. Lovely little sitting area outside the front door, a great place to enjoy an afternoon cocktail, or to BBQ.
I also have beach chairs, towels, coolers, and snorkel gear for your use during your visit.
This really is the perfect place to launch your Puerto Rico vacation.

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!
Mike and Tanya's studio was great. As our first airbnb experience, my girlfriend and I felt it was just right. The studio is exactly as listed in the posting.
The bathroom and kitchen were clean and tidy, with a fridge large enough for our needs.
The addition of welcome drinks in the fridge, beach towels, citronella candles, coffee maker and much more, made Mike and Tanya's beach studio a welcome place for us during our week in Puerto Rico.
We didn't need to contact Mike and Tanya during our stay, with easy check-in/check-out and a guidebook with ample information, which made for a very relaxing holiday.
Mike & Tanya were great hosts. They had stocked the apt with water, beer, kitchen essentials, shampoo/soap, beach towels, umbrella, sunscreen, aloe, bug spray, etc. - anticipating our needs when we first arrived. Our cab driver from the airport didn't speak English so we called Mike and he was kind enough to give directions to the cab driver in Spanish. We checked in an hour early and checked out an hour late, and it wasn't a big deal at all.
I will say the apartment was smaller than I expected and smaller than it looked in the pictures. That being said, everything the hosts described were accurate. Good restaurants were about a 20 min walk so farther than the description seemed (the closer restaurants weren't to our liking) - we particularly liked Mango's and Ocean Park Cafe. The wifi was really fast, the AC was powerful, and the bed/pillows were comfy.
Cozy Garden Studio is just as described. Great location from airport and quick walk to beach. Also within walking beach of Kasalta Bakery which was a favorite stop just prior to the beach. Very close to airport ($15-20 cab ride). Clean and had all essential items listed. Beach chairs were an added bonus. Great stay over-all, would stay there again. Thanks!!
We enjoyed our stay at Mike & Tanya's studio. The place was small but clean & we appreciated the beach towels. If we had any questions, mike was quick to respond via text. They also provided us with what's nearby to eat & grocery stores which was very helpful. Overall a good experience for using air bnb for the first time!
This space is perfect for the solo traveler or for two travelers looking to have a cozy experience. This studio nook is located in a safe neighborhood just two blocks from the beach. Though my husband and I didn't have the opportunity to meet Mike (as we were always out), Mike always responded quickly to emails and questions and left us a very thorough and helpful guide to the apartment and its nearby attractions. Overall, this apartment was perfect for us, and we would definitely stay again!
Our stay was great!
The information provided in the welcome 'packet' was exactly what was needed. The info included directions from the airport, info about getting settled, and directions about the area. All of which was useful.
The place is as described, and looks exactly as the photos show.
This is a great place for 1 traveler, or a couple as it is a bit tiny - but it you're not spending much time there then this is a great little place to crash and get some good rest.
The neighborhood feels safe, we rented a car and parked it on the street without any worries. We would recommend getting a car, as most attractions are driving distance. The beach nearby is nice and simple, and less than a 5 minute walk.
Overall: Great stay, easy, and nice.
Only con: The table isn't big enough to eat a meal at... but really, that's not such a bad thing!
Thanks Mike & Tanya
We were very pleased with our experience at Mike & Tanya's cozy garden home! We were very excited to arrive there and to find a very clean home and it was exactly as described on this site. We were one block from the beach and not far from the local stores and gas stations.
We got a confirmation in less than 24 hours after applying and the day before received an email confirming. The key was left for us to let ourselves in and it was very helpful to have specific directions sent to us before hand on how to get there and numbers for different taxi services.
We really loved the home inside. "Cozy garden" is exactly how it felt inside and outside. The A/C worked very well and sitting outside in the small garden felt and smelled like the beginning of our beautiful stay in Puerto Rico! This apartment was perfect for our stay and we really enjoyed using the small kitchen with all necessary accommodations given. We are so grateful for our stay at Mike & Tanya's and hope to visit again. The neighbor was quite mostly throughout the day and at night, with the exceptions of a few dogs barking in the morning- it was pretty peaceful and low key.
They provided us with beach towels, clean bed sheets, hair & body wash, sunscreen, and cooking spices. (All were so helpful and useful to have available.)
We really enjoyed our stay here and didn't have any contact with Mike & Tanya, but are very grateful for everything they provided us with. We would completely and absolutely recommend this cozy home to stay for one person or a couple that wants to be near the beach in Puerto Rico!
