The space

The bathroom is attached to a Gently lit private bedroom with A/C and a Queen size bed. Enjoy a comfortable memory foam mattress, down feather comforter and 1200 thread count luxury bed sheet set. A custom sliding door separates the private bedroom from the living room and kitchen which also has A/C. The sectional sofa becomes sleeping arrangements for 2 additional guests to sleep separately or combine together for a king size lounger. A large closet covered by large mirrored sliding doors provides a space to hang that sexy new dress for an epic night of Salsa in the town or find useful essentials to grab n go... Find items like the stocked charcoal for a portable beach grill, extra tiki torch fluid, Large beach towels etc... The kitchen is simple but functional and allows for basic food prep, warm up your take out trays from local fine dining, or pop a bottle of wine and walk to the beach or chill with netlix on the smart T.V. while the meat on the patio grill is cooking. The apartment has a guest wifi connection with fast cable internet to quickly post updates about your adventures in PR.

Guest access
During your stay, the whole Apartment will be available to you. We live on the property in the main house. The patio is a common area behind our house we share with our guests. There is a 6 burner gas grill, gentle patio lighting, simple patio chairs, and table under a canopy.

A dedicated washer and dryer is available on the patio. (wine spills are bound to happen) hahaha.

Beach dayz: You'll have access to a beach cart, beach chairs, beach umbrella, coolers. You are only a 2-5 min casual walk to the beach.

Parking your car: Your dedicated spot is curbside on the street directly in front of the house. We have several vehicles and reserve the right to park inside the property within the electric gate as this facilitates our daily tour operations loading and unloading equipment. Let us know if you plan to have a rental vehicle, or request additional accommodation with parking.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

Ocean park is only 8-12 minutes from the San Juan international Airport and central to everything an island visitor needs. Ocean Park is named after a beachside fitness park with public access, frequented by an active community of genuine beach lovers. The park is literally on the beachfront. This beach features direct casual access to sunny beach days with palm trees to hang a hammock. BYOB, cooler, chairs, umbrella, portable beach grill, and go relax. Millenial Van lifers will pull in and pull out with custom vans. Couples are seen well after sunset with a drink in hand walking along the beachfront or cuddling romantically. You'll get inspired that this is a special place. "La Trillorca" is a food kiosk on the beach serving Burgers and mixed drinks. Not far away is Coffeetera breakfast nook and great coffee, or "Kasalta" is an upscale bakery. "Tres palmas surf shop" is a convenient quick stop for board shorts or a variety of bathing suits and sunglasses or other beachvibe sports gear.
You'll find yourself conveniently close to many other Airbnb's. Airbnb Experiences hosts offer unique excursions like Yoga classes on the beach, Sip wine and Paint, or daily departures to the rainforest, Scuba diving, snorkeling with turtles, and other amazing adventure tours. Walk to Vegetarian restaurants, all types of local fine dining, bars, clubs, and pubs. The residential community is comprised of young professionals, retirees, and a variety of open-minded educated People. This is the part of the "Tourist district" that doesn't feel touristy.
