We are sisters, we love to travel and meet people from all over the world; we enjoy being hosts and to help others enjoy their stay while in our beautiful Puerto Rico.
I stayed here with my mom and sister for four nights in March 2014. The location is amazing (beach is across the street and less than 5 min walk) and super convenient (24 hour convenience store and many restaurants and hotels on the same block). We also felt very safe (24 hour security guard in the front and gated property). The apartment itself has everything you need (complimentary toiletries, towels, kitchen supplies, etc.) and is well maintained and clean. Also has a great balcony with a nice ocean view. Esther was an absolutely amazing host who gave us many great recommendations of places to go and eat. She went out of her way to drive us to El Yunque rainforest and is just overall very friendly, welcoming and thoughtful. We had a wonderful stay here and would definitely come back.
Esther was such a great host- she was able to pick us up from the airport as soon as we landed and was totally understanding when we showed up as a party of 5 instead of 4! The apartment was just the right size for a week-long stay and had access to anything we needed; there were plenty of places to eat, things to do and see, and the beach! I was able to call or text Esther with questions about things to do or things about the apartment with no problem! I'll definitely be back!
The condo was very well situated in relation to the beach and the neighborhood around the condo was well maintained. Convenient shopping for food and souvenirs was well within walking distance and the local grocery store was only a few blocks away. 5 star hotels across the street provided many good but expensive options for dinner. Lupi's down the street was our favorite local restaurant.
View from the room was beautiful and there was always a breeze in the room. We had all the necessities in the condo that we would need for a week stay and all the appliances and plumbing worked as expected. Coin operated laundry was available on the 2nd floor. A bit inconvenient compared to having that option in your room but the machines were clean.
Esther was very helpful with suggestions on where to go and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. The facility has a guard at the front gate that also was helpful and provided a sense of security. Did not take advantage of the pool but that was a nice setting to relax. We were very pleased with the condo and felt we received a good value with this condo.
I had a great stay in this apartment. Esther was a wonderful host who went above and beyond to make me feel welcome and comfortable. She picked me up at the airport and even took me to the beach and then a great local place for dinner, letting me crash her very nice cousin's birthday dinner. There was wine and cheese and fruit waiting in the apartment.
The apartment was situated perfectly for my trip. The beach is a short walk, as is a big, well-stocked supermarket. I had no car and no need of one.
I had a couple of questions while I was there, and Esther was extremely responsive and helpful. I would love to return someday.
We had a perfect vacation thanks to Esther and her lovely apartment. Wonderful space, especially for a couple, near to everything and very clean. Pool rocks, beach was even better. She picked us both up separately from the airport: talk about hospitality! We will absolutely be returning.
Esther , has just been just AMAZING;)) I couldn't ask for a better host. Our flight was cancelled to PR due to icy cold weather in Chicago. It was too late for me to cancel the reservation. Emailed Esther and told her my situation. She can't do anything with first night but she told me that as soon as I find out about my new flight, she will let me extend few extra days at her place with no extra charge since her place are not book till later in the week.
The place is in good location. 5 min walk from the beach. Lots of store and groceries in the area. She even volunteered to pick up my friends from the airport, who is arriving a day before me and my husband. The condo is stocked with basic necessities, i.e. Coffee, shampoo etc.When is do go back in PR I will stay here again.
Esther was a wonderful hostess - both before and during our time there. The apartment is walking distance to many restaurants, grocery store and the beach. We took a snorkeling tour and I had the shuttle pick us up at the Intercontinental hotel, which was across the street. Also we rented a car for a day from Charlie's and it was walking distance. With the car rental we got a free shuttle back to the airport. I would definately stay here again when I come back to Puerto Rico. Thank you for sharing your place with us, Esther!
Esther is an extraordinary host She makes you feel like at home by sharing and showing local cultures food and drink. Her apt is located a few blocks away from a beautiful beach and close to stores and wonderful local and high scale restaurants You can also catch a bus right in front of her apr complex to go to old San Juan. My husband two daughters and I tremendously enjoyed our stay at Esther's condo and will stay again if the opportunity presents in the near future. With much appreciation to Esther!!

Esther's place was great! My friends and I had a blast while staying there! Right next to the beach as well as other big hotels and restaurants, a car rental place and taxis always right outside the building. The apartment was also clean and fully stocked with soap and all other toiletries, plenty of blankets, and more. Esther was also kind enough to pick us up from the airport and take us around to the store, grab breakfast and show us around the town before running off the work! There are also magazines on the table with all the fun things to do while in Puerto Rico! I recommend El Yunque rainforest (do the whole hike if you can. It's worth it), the bioluminescence bay (that was my favorite) and sooo much more. Esther is always just a phone call away if you ever need anything!
Thanks for everything, Esther! See you the next time we're in Puerto Rico!
Very clean, well stocked condo near everything in San Juan. Also, Esther was super helpful and generous, offering to show us around. Felt very safe, with the gates and 24 hour security guard. The pool was mostly empty. So nice to have an actual bedroom and kitchen during our stay. There were taxis right across the street, for when we needed them. But we also took advantage of the assigned parking spot. If we ever come back to San Juan, we'll definitely stay here.
