About this listing
Nicely furnished 1 bedroom apartment 5 minutes from San Juan International Airport (SJU) = $15 cab fare. Close to shopping, restaurants, laundry, public pool and public transportation. A/C, cable TV, HS internet, equipped kitchen and parking. $55.00 per night.
There is a bus stop 3 blocks from my house, from airport, it would be 2 busses ($.75 per bus = $1.50 total). The closest beach is 2 busses away or about 30 minutes. There are many restaurants within walking distance - mostly fast food and a few nicer places: Longhorn Steak House, Famous Dave's Rib Joint, Denny's, etc. (nothing I would describe as "fine dining". By bus, we have Plaza Carolina which is a good sized mall with restaurants like Chiles.
Ease of public transportation: about a 4 on a 10 point scale, it is possible but I highly recommend renting a car purely from a time viewpoint.
If you will be coming by Taxi, MAKE SURE YOU TELL THE DRIVER TO TURN ON THE METER. Drivers here are notorious for overcharging by NOT using the meter. Trip here should be no more than 12 bucks. If driver refuses to turn on meter, politely get out and tell the taxi attendants you need a cab with a meter.
If you haven't been to Puerto Rico, be prepared to relax: Nothing here is fast except the folks on the highway (cross at the green, not in between... but ALWAYS check and recheck that folks are stopped). It's a beautiful island and the people are warm and friendly. Come explore or just relax on one of the great beaches and recharge your batteries. Enjoy!

Erik was great! he was very friendly.
Unfortunately, puerto rico was in a drought the days we went there so there was only water 1 day out of every 3 days. However, Erik was helpful and gave us water bottles to fill up and use on the dry days.
If renting at this location, it's best to have a car as most attractions are further away.
My boyfriend and I stayed at this apartment for about a week and could not have had a more perfect stay. Despite the water issue going on, Erik supplied us with water along with my boyfriend bringing his own gallons. The apartment was in a quiet area, friendly neighbors and the AC made it nice and cool to sleep in at night. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here for a perfect stay in PuertoRico.
Erik's place was in a convenient location. Booking was easy and the bed was comfortable. It was not far from the airport. I'd recommend.
I only stayed one night here, but I think it's the perfect place to be if you're looking to be close to the airport, Isla Verde and Pinones. The place was very clean and spacious, and he went out of his way to provide us with more than enough water despite the drought afflicting the area.
Eric was a top-notch and attentive host. He assisted us with negotiating travel and taxi to and from airport. Very Helpful. Get to experience a regular neighborhood of San Juan and talk with the friendly neighbors.
The place is cozy and actually bigger than I thought it be. The place was clean and the bed comfortable. Didn't get a chance to meet the owner in person but the kid who received us was very nice and polite. Stayed just for one night because of a very early flight the next day. Chose this place because of its proximity to the airport but there's also lots of stuff around like restaurants and such about 5 mins away. I even forgot some stuff at the place and the owner was kind enough to arrange for me to get them. Would definitely stay again .
We needed a place to sleep after a really late flight and this place worked out great. Erik made sure we were able to find the place and stayed up late to meet us. It was also nice to find cold water waiting for us in the fridge.
