Just an easy going fun guy
Steven's place was just how it was described. It's really a nice little room, private bathroom, separated from the rest of the unit. Steven was super helpful when we needed him. Definitely recommended.
The room was as advertised. Definitely no thrills and very third world accommodation to the extent that you probably should consider yourself at least slightly adventurous to stay there. Excellent location literally a minute from the beach and no more than five minutes from many restaurants, taxi and bus stops, and basic residential shopping. Also only fifteen minutes on foot from full tourist Condado if you're into that. It is on the inside of a residential block so it is isolated from the busy traffic corridors nearby. Steven was a very good host - informative when needed, invisible when not. He's 100% bilingual so it was easy to discuss subtleties of various activities in the area.
Steven was a very welcoming and nice host. The best thing about this place is the location. Great area. However, the title states it very well "no thrills". The bathroom/shower is a little bit too small but other than that the place is comfortable and the host is a nice guy!
Stayed with Steven with my girlfriend while we toured Puerto Rico. Everything was as is in description. I loved the room and it has a great view of the ocean. The room has three windows so there was a great breeze of the ocean. Would definitely stay again. Steven is a great host and offered up great advise about the city. I'm am very happy being that this was my first shot on airbnb.
I had a great stay. I had booked a flight at the last minute and was glad to find a place to stay that was less than half the price of the cheapest hotel. Great location and Steven was an excellent host. I loved it, but be warned, as the listing says this is a seriously no-frills place.
Pros- This place is in a fantastic, upscale and safe neighborhood. Steve is a great host- very easy to deal with and laid-back. He offered me a smoothie on arrival and made me feel comfortable.
The door to the room does not shut.
The room lights were dim and it was hard to see the contents of my backpack.
The description is very accurate here: no-thrills and you can't beat the location. It's perfect for backpackers; you're in a great neighborhood in Condado, between Ashford Av. (where all the action is) and Loiza Street (another cool street with tons of restaurants and bars). And you're literally a minute away from the beach! Also, Ocean Park is just around the corner (everything is walking distance). Steven is a very cool guy and a great host. He got me a coffee maker for the room and some awesome Puerto Rican coffee. He was very accommodating and helpful. I had a great experience.
This is a tough one. Steven was fantastic to deal with, the transaction, meeting, and leaving was super easy. The room and bathroom were kind of dirty though and it was in disrepair (the front door doesn't latch - you have to block it with a rock. Also the stairwell was pitch black so you need a flashlight or light app on your phone. The cieling fan didn't work but Steven brought a floor fan in that was functional. Also, the internet didnt work. It kind of went beyond "no frills".
The upside is that the neighborhood was great, very safe, pretty, and just a minute or two from the beach the location was excellent.
Steven was a good host. He kept good communication and gave us good suggestions for dinner. As advertised, the room was pretty basic but its walking distance to the Condado beaches which is a great location.
If all you want is a basic room in a great area of San Juan, then this is it. Literally steps from the beach, with a view from the room itself. Steven is an excellent host and was very helpful, knowledgeable and accommodating. The area itself is home to many luxurious buildings and hotels, with nightlife and restaurants all very close by. If you don't need a spa, but value proximity to places, a safe neighborhood, and great host then you should look no further.
Steve is a lifetime family friend. He is pleasant and knowledgeable and will make a great host!
