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!

No loud noises.
Please turn off A/C whenever you leave apartment.
Check out is 12:00 PM. Check in is 2:00 PM.
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.
Erik's apartment was exactly what we were looking for, a clean convenient place to crash before an early morning flight. We appreciated the cold water in the fridge, the strong AC, and most of all - his excellent dining recommendations. We're still dreaming about Heather's pizza in Culebra... Erik is as friendly and responsive as hosts come. We'd love to come back and stay here again.
Erik is a wonderful host. He stayed in contact all the way and made sure I got there ok! The place is, as mentioned in the description, cheap! If that's what you're looking for than its perfect. There were some dogs barking which kept me up and the bed wasn't super comfortable but everything else was in good working order. A mattress pad would probably help a lot. Overall, I'd recommend this place if you're looking to not splurge or need a place to crash near the airport before venturing further into the country.
