Description

The space

"Where else can you have a group of up to 27 of your family or friends staying together, yet with enough privacy that you are not on top of each other? 6 private kitchens. 8 bathrooms. 11 real beds and 4 queen size comfortable futons make this a unique place, just a 3 minute walk to San Juan's best beach, Ocean Park beach. This is ideal for groups of 16-20 though 27 can be accommodated. If you have a smaller group, you can reduce the number of apartments rented. The Villa is a collection of 6 apartments of various sizes. All of our units are in the same private building in Ocean Park, very close to Isla Verde. All units are completely private with their own entrances and each with its own private bathroom(s), kitchens, free WiFi, Air Conditioning, in room safes, USB chargers, and Cable TV. Some units offer steam showers, or two person double showers. All apartments are themed with Puerto Rico and its culture in mind, from our ""El Yunque"" unit celebrating the rain forest, to ""La Fabrica"", a nod to the rum industry in Puerto Rico.

In total you will have 8 separate bedroom/studios with 8 full bathrooms and 6 private kitchens. All apartments have high count linens, flat screen or projection TVs, cable, USB plugs, air conditioning and in room safes.

The kitchens vary from small to large, but all are packed with useful things such as a blender for your tropical drinks, a toaster, a coffee maker with enough coffee for at least your first night, full size refrigerators, complete tea service (with herbal and green teas), and high quality Circulon cooking pans.

Interaction with guests

We have self check in so you can arrive conveniently no matter what time your place arrives. However, it is likely that our on site manager, Noyda, may see you during your check in. She lives on site so she is available as our on site expert concierge to recommend restaurants, tours or any other questions. Just call her or knock on her door. We provide daily housekeeping, and you will likely see our cleaning staff during the day.

The neighbourhood

"If you are looking to be surrounded by hundreds of other tourists in a Disney style version of Puerto Rico, this is not the place for you. Here you will feel more like a local. You will experience a local taste of Puerto Rico staying with us, while still being within easy distance to the more popular tourist areas of Isla Verde and Condado, or Old San Juan. Ocean Park beach is the local's favorite (a 3 minute walk), and the small bistros and bars in the neighborhood are frequented mostly by the Puerto Rican community while warmly welcoming tourists.

Come stay at Coqui del Mar and experience the best of Puerto Rico in a homelike setting."

Getting around

"TAXI OR UBER
From SJU airport you are a simple taxi to us ($15-$20 per taxi). From the cruise ship docks it is similarly priced. We are about 10 minutes drive to the SJU airport and 20 minutes drive to Old San Juan. UBER works great in Puerto Rico and is reasonably priced. We can also recommend private drivers.

WALKING
Walking is a great option if you plan to simply see the beaches and you will have your choice of many local and unique restaurants, a late night grocery store, and shopping all within a 15 minute walk. You are within a 30 minute walk (or take our bikes) to the central tourist area of Condado. We at Coqui del Mar have created a local map of our favorite places for you to discover.

BUS
Local bus lines T-53 and T-5 are both within 5 minutes walk (one stop is just in front of the beach which makes a nice waiting spot). There are also free buses that visit the park just near our house. The buses go to Old San Juan, the convention center, Condado, or Isla Verde. *Be aware that buses do not typically run on schedule here and you may wait 5 minutes or 50.

BICYCLE
We also provide free bicycles with locks, another great way to get around. Avoid the traffic and enjoy some exercise.

RENTAL CAR
A rental car is recommended if you plan to travel outside of the San Juan area (i.e. the rain forest), or if you plan to travel frequently at night. A car can also easily be rented for only the days that you need one. (We recommend the local company, Charlie's Car Rentals, which offers free pick up or drop off service at our location during the work day). We offer free parking on the public street in front of us and it is easy to find a spot."

Other things to note

"WELCOME TO ALL
We welcome all guests and our private apartment style units make a perfect stay for families, honeymooners, couple retreats, friends get-a-ways, LGBT community, wedding parties, business travelers etc...

GROUP VACATIONS
We offer discounts for multiple rentals at the same time...Rent all 6 units for your family reunion, wedding parties, sport teams, work retreats or friends get togethers for a great way to have everyone in the same space, while still having your own space.

MEET OTHERS
Our guests that like to mingle and meet others can do so easily in the courtyard and jacuzzi areas. Or enjoy your privacy. Its up to you.

EXCLUSIVE DISCOUNTS
We work with the local community to find special exclusive discounts offered to our guests, such as $5 discount off a top rated El Yunque tour or extra drink at a local restaurant.

GREEN FRIENDLY

House Rules
No smoking
Check in is anytime after 3PM

Welcome to Coqui del Mar Guesthouse, an apartment hotel styled Eco and gay friendly guesthouse in San Juan Puerto Rico. We have NO extra or hidden fees.

OUR GOAL
Our goal is to make you feel at home and exceed your expectations. If things are not as expected for you, please let Noyda, our on site manager know so that she can fix it.

QUIET HOURS: As this is a guesthouse and you typically will be sharing the property with other guests, we do have quiet hours from 10pm to 9am daily. (If you rent all 6 apartments then you can set the quiet hours)

LAUNDRY: We have laundry machines that our housecleaning staff uses. Our guests are welcome to use these (and our detergents) for your own laundry but you must coordinate the time to use this via our on site manager (usually after 5pm).

OUTDOOR SHOWER: We ask all our guests to use this to get rid of the beach sand outside (instead of tracking it into your house).

BROKEN ITEMS: A guesthouse takes constant maintenance and many times, you are the first to discover a burnt out bulb, a loose hinge, or maybe an accidental breaking of a plate etc...Just let Noyda know so she can take care of this.

SHARING: Please feel free to share your unused sunscreen, bug spray, toothpastes, shampoos or whatever else you would like to leave behind. If it can be shared with other guests, we will. We have built up a collection of guidebooks and reading novels...Feel free to use these and add to the collection.

BIKES/BOOGIE BOARDS: We have several bicycles and boogie boards. These are provided on a first come first serve basis and can be reserved maximum one night before (just let Noyda know).

WATER: Please do your best to conserve water during your stay. You can make a big difference by hanging your bath towels. If our cleaning staff find these on the floor, we will know to replace them. By hanging them, you will be able to reuse them and reduce the laundry load/detergents.

ELECTRICAL: Please do your best to conserve electricity by shutting off your AC and lights when you leave the apartment. We have already taken numerous steps to make our guesthouse Eco Friendly, but we need our guests cooperation to truly make a difference.

PETS: Please let us know what type of pet you plan to bring with you. We love animals but owners are expected to clean up after their pets and we can accept only certain good mannered pets.

From the beginning, Robert was extremely cooperative and willing to assist us in our stay for my brother's bachelor party. Noyda and Neal, the onsite residents, were very welcoming and made sure that we were well-accommodated. I can't rave enough about our experience. It was the perfect location for a bachelor party (15 guys in total!), but I can also see this site being used easily for large family reunions or group trips. San Juan is beautiful and the Coqui del Mar guesthouse was the perfect place for us to stay. Just one block away from the beach, easy access to uber drivers, friendly neighbors, great food in the vicinity.... Part of the group actually arrived earlier in the week, and I actually wish we stayed at Robert's place for the entire week we were in Puerto Rico. The set-up at the house is great. You really don't need to worry about a thing - shampoo, soap, sunscreen, bug spray, A/C are all provided. The units allow you to have as much privacy between you and your neighbors as you'd like. I'd book Coqui del Mar again in a heartbeat!

Coqui del Mar is a gem. I hosted my brother's bachelor party of 20 guys here. We rented out the whole villa and we couldn't have been happier. The rooms were all clean and well air conditioned, each with a private bathroom, and the patio area and hot tub were a fantastic place for all us to hang out, drink, and eat. Noyda and her husband Neil were extremely gracious helping us with small things such as extra towels to big things like using their connections to get us a personal chef to come and cook for us, or helping us get a reservation at an extremely popular club. They were always available if we needed anything, and felt very well taken care of. Other than that, the neighborhood is very quiet and residential, but the villa is only a short walk from the beach or an 8 minute (30 min walk) cab ride from Isla Verde. If you have a large party traveling to PR or even if you are just a couple, I would highly recommend Coqui del Mar.

Response from Robert:
Terrence, So glad that your bachelor party was a success. Agreed that renting the villa complete is perfect for bachelor parties, wedding parties, family reunions, company outings and other celebrations. And thank you for being such great and respectful guests during your stay. We hope to host you for another celebration soon. Sincerely, Rob and the Coqui del Mar family

Saludos, Bonjour, Hello! I am from California, (San Diego) and spent many years in the Coast Guard. I have been living in Europe the last few years (currently in Bordeaux, France after several years in Paris). I recently completed a 9 month cooking school through Le Cordon Bleu, so if you are renting my spare room in Bordeaux, I'd love to provide breakfast (unless I'm traveling...but there are so many local options anyways). I love exploring Bordeaux, Europe, and I guess travel in general, and I've found AirBnB a great way to do it. I've found a great, very open and fairly spacious apartment that I rent either as a 1 bedroom (when I am here) or 2 bedroom private apartment (when I am traveling).

If you are looking at the Puerto Rico properties on my listing, it's basically a guest house (see us on TripAdvisor) and there are on site managers that will not leave you feeling like you are abandoned on the island. They call Coqui del Mar home and will be happy to help you with recommendations, travel tips, or anything to make your stay more memorable. There are 6 rentable units within the same property. If you have any questions prior to booking either Puerto Rico or Bordeaux, please let me know. Thank you!

Sincerely, Rob - owner, Coqui Del Mar guest house
