The Space

This apartment has been completely remodeled!! New floors throughout, larger living room, gorgeous bathroom, newly painted, and new furniture. A must see! Comfy remodeled 1 bedroom apt (sleeps 4). Located on a first floor of a small, quiet 3 floor building, typical of the Miramar District. Apartment has 11ft high ceilings, big windows, A/C in bedroom and living area, an outdoor terrace, and private parking. The master bedroom has hard wood floors, a queen size bed, and ample storage space. New remodeled kitchen, coffee maker and microwave, fridge and washer/dryer. The living area has a full size futon that sleeps two and a smaller futon that sleeps one person. There is a large flat screen TV, cable and free wifi.
The private patio space is great for relaxing. You can enjoy the beauty of the trees that surround it and the vegetation and flowers inside.

Miramar is a great and lively neighborhood. It is famous for its restaurants, coffee shops, cinema, art and music. There are over 14 great restaurants/bars walking distance from my apartment. Here are a some of them:
Melanzanna (italian), Pizza Birra (italian), Abreu's Wine Cellar (spanish), Casita Miramar (puertorican), Café Miramar (puertorican), Lima (peruvian), La Jaquita Baya (puertorican), Papillon Bistro (french/provençal), Soda (artesanal), Bistro 606 (french), Augusto's Cuisine (international), La Pradera (puertorican), Osaka (Japanese), Bartola (mexican), Los Pinos (24/7) (puertorican).

Miramar is very close to Condado (walking distance) and Old San Juan (5 min. in car or public transportation). It is a very popular neighborhood that appeals to young and old alike because of the many things to do and visit.
And best of all everythin is walking distance: the supermarket, a pharmacy, a post office, UPS store, banks, deli, bars, restaurants, hotels, convention center. So if you come for business or for pleasure, you have all you need close by.

During the day walk to the beach, go to Old San Juan or El Condado... so close! And, in the evening walk to one of best movie theaters of the metropolitan area or have a great dinner or just enjoy the music and some drinks in one of the bars, hotels or lounges. Also, if you like art, you will find art galleries and museums close by, too.

The Urban Garden is perfect for a getaway vacation! Artists, travelers, writers, families and business people are welcome. Just steps from the bus stop, beach, bike paths, and the Puerto Rico Convention Center. This is definitely your best choice in Miramar.

  • We had a wonderful 2 months in Sofia's apartment. Miramar is a great neighborhood, walking distance to the beaches and tourist attractions of Condado, and a short bus ride from beautiful Old San Juan. The apartment is bigger than it looked to us in the pictures, and had everything we needed. When there were minor problems (a water leak in the kitchen, and the cable/Wi-Fi cut out), Lourdes had them fixed right away. This apartment is in an old building with the problems of an old building, but with the architectural grace of one as well. The one annoyance was the traffic noise from the street and bus stop outside the window. It made sitting on the patio less desirable, and we had to close the windows to listen to the television in the evening. But the bedroom had been soundproofed effectively, especially if the a/c is on.

    Thanks for this great review. Hope you come back soon.

  • We had a great stay in Miramar. Sofia's place was comfortable and relaxing. There were more than enough linens enough sleep space for three. The apartment was two blocks away from a number of great restaurants in the area which we loved -- Melanzana, PizzaIberria, and a favorite tapas spot called Soda. There were a number of easily accessible buses that took us to Old San Juan (15min bus ride) and the Condado beach (10min bus ride) which we frequented. Sofia's mum, Lourdes, was very responsive when we had questions about the apartment and about a nearby pharmacy. We loved Miramar and loved the comfort of our airbnb apartment space. Everything worked well in the apartment. Thanks Sofia and Lourdes!

  • Nice, clean 1 bdrm apt with extra sleeping space for a few others if need be. Convenient to have washer/dryer and close by to a grocery store and restaurants on Ponce de Leon Ave, in safe residential neighborhood of Miramar. Only inconvenience is street noise due to corners location and bus stop out front of apt.

    Hi Tina, We begin tomorrow a major renovation in the apartment (floors, bathroom, tearing down a wall to create a larger living area) which includes sound proofing the bedroom window. I will be posting the new pictures after December 19 when all will be finished! We are very enthusiastic about our project. Hope you come back soon so you can get to see it.

  • Sofia and her mother, Lourdes, were extremely supportive, accessible, and considerate renters. I had a little trouble with morning traffic noise, but I am unusually sensitive to this. They were very accessible by telephone and email and did everything they could to make me feel supported, even to the point of offering me an alternate apartment if I needed it. Ultimately I adjusted to the noise after a couple of mornings and happily stayed in this location. They also said that they are considering sound proofing the bedroom window. The apartment was pretty, clean, and comfortable. Sofia is an artist and has decorated the apartment with some tasteful and meaningful art.
