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.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience staying at the beach block studio. The location was perfect. It was close to the airport, a short walk across the street to a nice quiet beach and we never had to go very far to get to go to a good grocery store or place to eat. The neighborhood was quiet and felt safe with friendly neighbors surrounding us. We greatly appreciated the snorkeling and beach gear provided. I would definitely recommend this apartment for anyone traveling to Puerto Rico. We wish we had longer to stay here!
This studio was perfect and exactly what we were looking for. It was a block away from the beach and just a few minutes away from everywhere we wanted to go....lots of cool restaurants and cafés within walking distance. I only met the owner once and he was super friendly and informative about the area.The check in and out procedure was self check in and very convenient. The space was clean and comfortable if you're coming to Puerto Rico I would definitely recommend staying in the studio
The Beach Block Studio was very comfortable and cozy, felt like a home away from home! The studio was clean and well-furnished, and we enjoyed the dvd selection. We had a slight hiccup/issue with water shortage but Mike was very responsive and sympathetic. The location is perfect for anyone who wants to be away from the touristy areas. I recommend renting a car to better get around and save on cab costs (high). We would love to return and stay again in this or another of Mike and Tanya's places!
Mike was very accommodating with my early arrival, letting me put my luggage in the apartment. It was clean and great location. He had lovely directions and suggestions for local food.
My husband and I finally had an opportunity to take our honeymoon. We chose the studio because of all of the wonderful reviews and the great location. We could not have enjoyed ourselves more. Communication before our arrival was great, check in was easy, the studio liked just like the photos, the beach is in walking distance, and we were close to many other places of interest (Old San Juan, Isla Verde, etc.). We had a couple experiences with "nature", but it was expected. We highly recommend staying with them and we look forward to future visits.
Mike is always very helpful. The place is cozy and great for a stay in Puerto Rico. Would stay there again.
The listing description was on point, the neighborhood was very nice everything we need was close by. The beach was 1 block away. The grocery store was 1 and 1/2 blocks away. Everything in walking distance. One thing though, there were no lights going from the beach block studio to the main house. It's very dark. We had to use our cell phones for light when going between houses. The outside light did not work or not motion sensored.
