happily married for 25 years with Mayra , 2 children : Victoria 23 and Carlos Andres 22. iI Like old san juan and the beach . Learning to play golf recently and liking it too.
Great experience. Margarita was very helpful and warm. We would definitely consider staying here again. Gorgeous place and extremely private. Very well decorated.
This is our first experience with Airbnb. I have to say it has been a wonderful stay at this cute apartment. The apartment looks even better than the pictures! It's so cozy and make us feel like home all the time. I remember when we went to Vieques and stayed one night, the next day on our way back we were saying: Arh we are going home (aka this apartment)! Margarita was really helpful and patiently explain where we should see and eat at old San Juan. All the places she recommended are great! She also put bread/milk/eggs in the fridge when we arrived which was such a pleasant surprise for us!
We wish we could stay longer. Five stars experience! Highly recommended! :)
The villa is beautiful and an incredible deal. We had five people staying at the villa, with plenty of space for each of us. There is a private patio, overlooking some water, where we ate all our meals, but there is also a nice place inside to eat as well. Carlos supplied pots and pans and other kitchen utensils, which made cooking at the villa very easy. The pool is an easy 10-15 min walk from the villa, but there is also a pool (and hot tub) just for the cluster of villas where you are, which was basically empty every time we went. It is truly a great spot.
Carlos is also a great host. We had a lot of last minute questions both before and during our stay, and he always answered them quickly and thoroughly. The villa was also in beautiful shape when we got there - exactly like the pictures (if not even better). He takes very good care of his place.
This was our first experience with Airbnb and everything worked perfectly. The apartment was clean and tidy, fridge well stocked although we bought our own consumables but still, it was considerate having stuff in the fridge, towels and linens nice and fresh. No problems with check-in and out. Margarita was very helpful too. Beautiful property and the private interior garden is wonderful. Tastefully decorated and comfortable. Old San Juan is a small area so it is within easy walking distance of everything in Old San Juan. We had a good time. No problems at all.
This was our first experience with Airbnb and it was just amazing. OUr host Carlos was great to deal with and so was Margarita. Coordination was seamless right from the time of booking to the checkin.
The Villa itself was amazing and so central. It was right in the heart of Old San Juan. We did not need a car for the duration of the stay and we just walked everywhere. The place was immaculate when we arrived. Clean bathrooms, linnen, sheets etc. The Kitchen was full stocked and there was beer, milk and other items that we were asked to use and not replenish them, which was a great gesture.
We loved the courtyard in the villa. One can sit there reading a book and soak in the gorgeous sun.
This was one of or best holidays and big thanks to Carlos and Margarita was making our stay so special.
It was a great place to stay. Everything was as expected and it was very easy to get in and out. I was amazed how close it was to the beach, maybe a 3 minute walk. It will be great to come back.
Carlos's place was perfect! It's in a wonderful location and the apartment itself is very comfortable, with everything we needed for our five days in Viejo San Juan. Carlos and Margarita were welcoming and provided a great list of restaurants and places to explore.
I recently travelled to PR for my wedding in February and had the pleasure of staying at Carlos' place for the duration of my time there. Firstly, Carlos was a most gracious and accommodating host and left clear instructions regarding the use of his place. Secondly, this place is AWESOME! The photos online do not do justice to this beautiful indoor-outdoor space. The house was ALWAYS the perfect temperature and it was hardly necessary to use the A/C. It's proximity to all things good in Old San Juan, meant traversing the meandering streets at any hour was safe and convenient. Lastly, I would encourage anyone looking to save while traveling to PR to strongly consider this place. The reality is, my experience has been there are just a handful of truly decent hotels in Old San Juan (The Sheraton at Old San Juan and El Convento are the two I am most familiar with) - and these hotels come at a price! Carlos' place was by FAR considerably more affordable than staying at reputable hotel. Sure, it may be possible to find some accommodations that are close to Carlos' listed price, but I assure you none will have the cleanliness, relaxed and "at-home" feel Carlos' place affords. So, if you are looking to travel to Old San Juan affordably and be at the center of everything this wonderful city has to offer, this is the place to stay. In fact, my wife and I are hoping to return to PR later this year and without a doubt, this beautiful home will be at the top of the list for out accommodations when we return! Thanks Carlos for a wonderful experience and for making your home available to us!
This house is amazing. Reasonable price and great neighborhood. I would definitely return to Carlos' apartment and his on-site host Margarita was very helpful
Staying at carlos place was the highlight of our trip. It was wonderful!!!
The house is neat,well maintained and centrally (email hidden) gives a complete feel of old San Juan. Everything was at walkable distance.
We met 'Margarita', who handed over the keys to us. She was amazing!! She walked us through the house..Gave us details regarding all good restaurants, bars and coffee shops around. A very warm person..
We loved our stay..I was kinda sad when we were leaving the house because 3 nights which we stayed was awesome:)
There was a v tiny problem, not worth mentioning.. I somehow felt the AC in the room was not that good. Though it was working, it dint keep the room cool. May be this has to be checked..
Overall, It was a great experience. Consider yourself lucky if the house is available for your dates!!
It was an absolute pleasure having Carlos and his friend. Super nice, friendly, fun people, very easy to get along with and nice to talk to, the ideal guests!!! .
The communication was fluid, he informed me about the exact time of arrival and departure, they were top notch guests!
Good people to meet and definitely host worthy. I recommend Carlos as a guest 100%
Carlos was a lovely guest and a fellow AIRBNB host who seemed to really enjoy his stay. He left the place very clean and was a pleasure to have and to meet. We would look forward to having Carlos again when he finds his way back to the big apple.
