“Unbelievable location w parking!”
Reviewed 5 February 2016 for a stay in September 2015

Wife and I stayed do for a week in September and couldn't have been happier. Maria and her husband were great hosts and the 1BR w kitchenette was exactly what we needed. There was nothing fancy in the rental but it was the perfect place for us to base our busy week.

The room was clean and the AC in the bedroom greatly appreciated. Bed was comfy and plenty of room for the 2 of us. We didn't spend a lot of time there because we were always on the move. Didn't even turn on the TV that week! If you planned on hanging out during the day the place would be fine though!

The major pluses were location and parking. We drove a lot and would not have bothered renting a car if we couldn't find a place w a parking spot. Got it here! The other benefit was its location in the Northern neighborhood of OSJ. We love it there! Plenty of great restaurants and bars within walking distance!

WE WILL BE BACK!!!

“Location & Parking in OSJ!”
Reviewed 9 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

people found this review helpful

We recently completed a week rental of Apt 2 with Maria & Ramon. We wanted to stay in OSJ this time for the accessibility to restaurants, bars, forts, museums and general historic sightseeing. This apartment gave us an unheard of parking spot, we were footsteps from restaurants and adult watering holes(San Sebastion) and short walk to the historic fort area. You simply can walk to anything in OSJ with ease. The apartment itself is just as advertised - it is a very basic accommodation that is safe and secure. When we travel, we are looking for a home base that we can rest our head at night, not somewhere to spend a large amount of time. This apartment fits the bill. We had a shower, an air conditioned full bed bedroom, a refrigerator to store leftovers, a coffeepot, a small table in the kitchen, a nice sitting area with small TV and there was a WIFI connection if you needed one. We had great communication at all times with Maria and Ramon if we needed anything at all.
We will definitely have this on the list for our next stay in OSJ. It is a great value!

“Walk to everything in Old San Juan...and Parking!”

Great location--two blocks from the Castillo Colombo and one block from El Jibarito famous and popular traditional PR food. Also one block from the ocean view and an easy stroll down the road to the fortress. The parking spot is a godsend in OSJ and makes it easy to get out of the area and explore the island. We visited the noisy, busy hotels in Condado and really appreciated coming home to the quiet of this apartment and the area. Even on Christmas Eve it was peaceful and relaxing. The kitchen is perfect for travelling with a family and preparing breakfast easily. Also great to have the fridge for all the leftovers you will bring home from the fantastic restaurants that give you too much food! Wifi and DirectTV make it comfortable like home, and two laundromats within a few blocks makes doing laundry halfway through your trip easy too. The owners live upstairs and are immensely helpful with any questions you might have. They even gave my son a Christmas present since we arrived two days before the holiday. So generous! If you want to live in a typical home for your stay instead of the crowded, loud hotels that require you to keep to their restaurant schedules, this is a great option. I recommend a compact car, not just for the parking, but for the smaller streets you will be driving through in the old city. Enjoy! We did.

This was the perfect place to stay in Old San Juan! The location was excellent: just a block from the sea, two blocks from the old fort, and close the hub of the city. Maria and Ramon were super friendly and helpful when we needed them. The parking spot was a coup! We loved the apartment; it was over 150 years old, comfortable, quiet and charming. If we are ever back in Puerto Rico we are definitely planning to stay again.

“Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

What a terrific place to stay and what a wonderful and comforting hostess! Maria is an amazing person and will go out of her way to accommodate you and make you feel at home. My wife, niece, and I, after a brief plane delay as well as a 70 minute wait to get our checked bags and rental car, arrive at Maria's at 2:30 am. Maria is awake and welcomes us to her home. She has the air conditioning on already in the bedroom as well as having purchased some bread and cheese for us to eat. She even parks the rental car in her driveway parking space for us! This all in the middle of the night. I don't know if any other person who would do that, let alone someone renting an apartment. She had already answered several questions for me via email. As well as giving me insider information to places to see and eat at. She is always available and willing to help in any way that she can. The apartment is so warm and welcoming. We all felt like we were home. You have all the comforts of home, a living room, kitchen/ dining room and master bedroom. The air conditioning works perfectly and each room has a ceiling fan as well. No need to worry about leaving your belongings there as Its extremely safe and sound. The parking space is amazing. A parking space in Old San Juan is amazing let alone one where you park in front of your apartment in the driveway. You don't park on the side of the street so no need to worry about getting blocked in or having the car dinged, dented, or broken into. The parking space is yours the whole time you are there. After a long day of touring the island you can guarantee to find parking right in front of your home. The location is perfect for exploring Old San Juan as well as being very close to eating and shopping. The rental fee is cheaper than the majority of hotels in Puerto Rico and is so much more than a hotel room, it's like your home away from home. I would recommend to anyone going to Puerto Rico to stay in Maria's lovely apartment.
