We had a great stay! There was plenty of space for our group of three adults. The space felt super clean, too. We absolutely loved the patio for relaxing. The cooler, beach chairs and beach towels provided by the host were very nice to have. Air conditioning in the bedrooms was nice too. The host was easy to get ahold of when we had questions. Restaurant recommendations were good too. We loved the location. Walkable to the beach, restaurants & bars, short drive to more popular nightlife & beaches. A couple minor things like bathroom door not closing was a pain, hardware needs to be replaced. But overall completely happy with our stay!

Comfortable 2 BR close to the beach and less than a 10 min cab ride to Old San Juan. Very accommodating and responsive hosts!

My five friends and I stayed at the Balcón for Memorial Day Weekend and had an absolutely delightful time! The place is clean and charming and came with all of the necessities (beach towels & chairs, sunscreen, Brita filter, wifi, etc). We basically lived in the hammocks on the balcony. The location is great, only a short 5 min. walk to a beautiful beach and brief Uber to Old San Juan where we went out for dinner/drinks most nights. Only complaint, which was to be expected, is that it was a bit tight with six people and one bathroom. Marisel, Arnaud & Christian were extremely helpful! They provided extra towels when we arrived and fresh ones about halfway through our stay. They was also extremely flexible with our check out time and allowed us to take our time, which we deeply appreciated. I'd definitely recommend this place for anyone looking for a low-key location that is accessible but a bit removed from the action of Old San Juan.

One of the best places we have stayed in and the nicest host. My kids and I LOVED the balcony and enjoyed our time there. The space is open and bright and very comfortable. It is close to a non-touristy beach that was beautiful. Many restaurants close to the place. The host is very accommodating and addressed all our questions and concerns. I had inquired about the drinking water and they provided us with 4-gallons of water, very thoughtful gesture. I was also happy to find an amazing yoga studio near by, "it's yoga Puerto Rico", one of the best yoga studio I have been to, a must try for all traveling yogis.

Marisel was an excellent host and this location was perfectly central to the beach, restaurants, nightlife - you name it! Not far from Old San Juan or hot spots like La Placita (just a short Uber drive away), and also very close to the airport. The home was exactly as pictured and the patio was our favorite part. We spent a lot of time there as a group and really enjoyed the comfort of that space. Although the home is advertised for up to six, I would recommend booking for no more than four people. The pull out bed in the living room is a little stiff and considering how early the sun comes up and the morning noise of construction and general sounds of the neighborhood waking up, it's hard on the person who's stuck sleeping in the living room. We loved the restaurants that Marisel recommended and really appreciated the quick responses when we had questions.

Our stay at Marisel's place was great. The place was exactly as described and fit all of our needs for the week. The place is a short walk to one of the best beaches around and a short uber/taxi drive to Old San Juan or any other places around town. Great location!
