Tara's home is a lovely and creative abode filled with lots of fresh air, sunlight, art, vintage finds, and aromatic herbs, plants, and veggies. Her space was wonderful, just like she was, who was also quick to respond to any logistical matters or questions. Definitely go visit El Departamento de la Comida, it's great to see her creating some positive change around Puerto Rico. Wish we had more time to hang out! Thanks for the hospitality you provided to my friend and I!
We loved staying with Tara. Our room was clean and felt like home. I loved all the fresh air and sunshine in her apartment. The place was easy to find and the bus system made it easy to get to Old San Juan. As an added bonus, we tasted interesting local fruits and she told us about the plants she's growing. She even hooked us up with a friend to stay with in Vieques.
Very cool and unique apartment. Area is about a 20 minute walk from beach. No AC, but pleasant at night. We never met Tara but she was helpful in arranging key pick up, etc.
Absolutely wonderful—we loved the accommodations and dećor, not to mention Tara's friendliness and responsiveness, and would not hesitate to recommend both her place and the neighborhood (Santurce). Manolo is also adorable, and makes this place a must for cat lovers.
Tara communicates well, replies my questions through text message within minutes. Her place is very cute and cozy. Bus stop right in front of the apartment which takes you to Old San Juan, we are glad that we get to see the real San Juan, not just the touristy part. Tara's recommendations for food and art are both fantastic.
Tara's place was great! In Santurce, you're right in the middle of some of the best food in the world. Unfortunately didn't get to make it to Tara's co-op, but based on the artistic vibe of her flat, I'm sure it's amazing too.
I'd recommend this place for anyone who enjoys a local feel in a new city. Though it's quite a walk to Old San Juan, Condado, and Isla Verde, it's all relatively close. San Juan is a dense town.
Thanks again Tara! Come to Austin anytime.
As soon as we arrived, Tara welcomed us with open arms. She went over everything we needed to know and gave us many tips on where to go locally. We also visited Tara at El Departamento de la Comida, which she owns and had a fantastic lunch there. Even though, we had a rough start with losing the keys to the apt., Tara was more than accommodating until we found them. The neighborhood was nice too. We were just blocks away from everything we needed and around 15 minutes away from the tourist area.
We loved our stay at the Santurce Room! We arrived in Puerto Rico later on at night and Tara was so helpful in making sure we arrived to the apartment well. It was just a short drive from the airport. Her place is cozy and has a wonderful view overlooking Santurce. We would definitely recommend staying with Tara!
I had an awesome experience at Tara's apartment. It is a bit far from Old San juan, but the bus stop was only 10 mins away(walking).
Unfortunately, she was busy and we didn't get a chance to interact.
Her animals were really cool and chill.
It would certainly be nice if the door in the room can be (website hidden) is not possible--or maybe it is and i didn't do it properly? Other than this, it was a nice stay. The quesillos at the TOTAL gas station are the bomb. I didn't have anything similar since.
Tara was the most welcoming, kind, fun and warm host who has become a dear friend I will cherish. I felt right at home as soon as I arrived. Her home is beautiful with everything one needs including a seductive hammock in her balcony garden! It is located at the center of Santurce, great to walk to the beach and delicious restaurants. I will definitely be going back and Tara's will be the first choice for my stay in gorgeous Puerto Rico. I also HIGHLY RECOMMEND her organic produce shop/cafe El Departamento de la Comida; every meal will uplift your soul, guaranteed!!
gracias!!! welcome back, we are all waiting!
Tara was a wonderful airbnb guest! We were able to easily communicate with her regarding her arrival, and felt comfortable from the beginning. We returned to our house in perfect condition, and a lovely handwritten note from Tara, thanking us for her stay. We couldn't ask for a better, more responsible guest! Thanks again.
