Great location, pictures are true to what it actually looks like and it has a very comfortable bed! It rained a couple days so it was a bummer the outside patio wasn't covered but it was still nice to be able to BBQ everyday!
We will definitely stay here again!
Loved my stay. In the mornings I sat outside to listen to the beautiful sounds of Puerto Rico. The house was very accurate and more modern than most houses in Puerto Rico. Within one block from the beach and within walking distance to stores and restaurants. We enjoyed Blue Burger at night. My son enjoyed skateboarding around the neighborhood. Overall the house is very accommodating with beach chairs included. This will be my home away from home.
My husband and I loved staying here. It was a great area in walking distance from the beach. We rented a car also, which made getting around really easy. The apartment looks exactly like the pics. It was perfect for us two. It was nice and clean, we also enjoyed watching a few of the DVDs! Mike had a nice list of places to eat and grocery stores which we utilized. We felt at home and want to go back!
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.
We just returned from a truly wonderful week at Mike & Tanya's condo. The condo is exactly as pictured (even better actually). We have two young children (6 years old and 10 mos) and the condo was perfect. There was a highchair for our son and I was able to rent a portable crib from a local company that dropped it off and picked it up with the guard at the complex. If you are traveling with young children, this is perfect.
As others have described, it was safe, clean, and wonderful. The patio opens right up to the big common yard and playground, which was perfect for my daughter (but not noisy). The pool is clean and refreshing, almost within eyesight of the condo's patio. The condo had an extremely helpful notebook full of information about the area, where to eat, maps, a guide book, etc. etc. The parking spot was very convenient and the gate system was easy to use. Mike was very responsive with any questions.
There were two beach chairs, beach towels, a gazillion DVDs, snorkeling masks, all sorts of appliances (blender, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer, hair dryer). The welcome bottle of wine and couple of beers and waters was a very nice touch.
It's not a huge place but the tall ceilings made it feel quite spacious and cool, and with the patio and common space right out the door, it really feels much bigger. We only used the AC at night. The bedroom has a queen bed, which was very comfortable although it is a little tight on the sides. The pull out sofa had an air mattress pillow top which was very comfortable and worked perfectly for our daughter.
The guards were almost like having a concierge, they helped us with directions, getting taxis, takeout, etc.
Also, everyone who we met in the complex was lovely. It's low key and pretty quiet. We met a mix of families and retirees and our daughter quickly made friends with a couple of other children on the playground.
For those traveling with small children, the only thing I would mention is that the beach in front of the condo is beautiful but the ocean (at least in February) was pretty rough--too rough for young kids to go in by themselves. When the tide is high, there is not much beach to sit on but the beach is cleaned regularly and gorgeous when the tide is a little lower. We primarily used the pool and then took a couple day trips to a really calm public beach at Luquillo. That's not to say that for adults, this wouldn't be perfect. We still went swimming and the water was incredibly warm (warmer even than the pool!). The neighborhood is safe and quiet. We regularly walked to nearby restaurants for dinner.--(I will mention to the hosts that the nearest pizza place mentioned in their welcome materials, Conde, appears to have closed recently.)
I look forward to our next stay!
Mike and Tanya were exceptional hosts. It was my birthday weekend they took the time to correspond with me months prior. They were very direct, and gave me immediate response to any questions I had. When we arrived the townhouse was exact to pictures. Clean, private, beautiful and location, location, location was perfect. I look forward to returning this summer.
We loved Mike and Tanya's place. The view was gorgeous, the location was perfect. The people working the front desk were very helpful. The condo had everything we would need, and there was a book left by them that gave us some great suggestions. We walked to ocean park beach and Kasaltas bakery almost everyday. An easy walk East to Isla Verde had plenty of good food and grocery options. We look forward to the next time we are in PR, and look forward to staying at Mike and Tanya's!! Restaurant suggestions would definitely be Ceviche House on isla verde and Jose Enrique's in the plazita.
We had a great stay at the Beach Block Studio. The studio is quite small, but clean and has a lot of additional amenities we took advantage of (beach towels, cooler, beach chairs). The neighborhood was safe, quiet and close enough to different restaurants/beaches. Mike was also kind enough to arrange for us to drop off our luggage early upon our arrival.
The entire experience was fantastic.
The listing and photos were accurate and honest.
The host was warm, pleasant, and welcoming.
And the studio was exactly as described.
I had a wonderful experience and sincerely look forward to using the services again.
The beach block studio was exactly how it was described in the website. It's a small cozy bedroom with a kitchen and a patio. It was kept pretty clean and with all the things you would need like beach chairs, towels etc. The location was perfect, beach and airport are very close. We loved the variety of restaurants on Loiza Street, all within walking distance. The internet was out and Mike was responsive and had it fixed within the hour.
Tanya Esparza is a very capable, detail oriented, totally honest person. She is straight forward & a very pleasant person-she's a pleasure to work with.,
This condo on the beach is the perfect vacation rental. You are right on the beach, with pool and privacy. You will feel at home in puerto Rico. Tanya and mike have lots of experience with rentals and Tanya runs a paddle boarding adventure. Renting with airbnb is the hidden secret for affordable vacations. This condo is a great place to stay.
Tanya takes great pride in her vacation properties! She takes great care in decoration and accomodation, and makes sure that everything you need is available for a pleasant stay. Her properties are always in great repair, and very clean and comfortable. I have personally stayed in two different rentals she owns, and both were exceptional. I have traveled quite a bit, and can honestly say these were top tier properties.
