This is a simple, but lovely little cottage just 1/2 block from the best beach in San Juan.

Like an oyster, the outside is plain and nondescript, but the inside was just remodeled and is very clean, comfortable and stylish, with AC & covered patio

The space

For me, personally, when I go on a beach vacation, it's very important to be right ON (or very close to) the beach. Sometimes one block away is too far, especially if I have to cross a busy street. Then you lose that mellow beach vibe, that special intimacy of being a part of the eco-system.

This is a very special space, quite close to the beach (1/2 block). It is small and simple, but clean, comfortable & stylish, in a zen sort of way. It is a small cottage behind the main house, at the end of the driveway.

The living room, dining & full kitchen are all one room, with a fold out futon that sleeps 2 very comfortably.

The bedroom holds a King size bed.

The bathroom has a nice, modern shower.

There is hot water in the shower and bathroom sink, but not in kitchen sink.

Out back is a lovely hand laid brick patio, with a beautiful table, chairs, hammock and Yoga swing. The patio is a shared area for the people in the main house, but we have never seen them out there, except to do laundry occasionally, so practically speaking, it is your own quite private space, with a tin roof to protect your picnic in case it rains.

Guest access

Guests have access to the entire cottage, with two entrances. And the patio.

Interaction with guests

We may or may not be around, in the main house, but will always be available by phone if you need anything.

They were very helpful with responding to my messages in advance with information about the house. Though my stay had to be cancelled due to the hurricane, they were so, so helpful and communicative about it. So grateful.

The location is really the best part of this place. It's half a block from a quiet beach, right next to a street with a lot of bars and restaurants (including La Junta - the best music bar around according to my friend from SJ) and a $10 uber ride to both the airport and Old San Juan. I was concerned at first about the "gated community" part but that's not a big deal. The place itself is a little 1 bedroom apartment/casita type of deal - like a little guest house behind the main house. It would be okay for a couple and certainly for 1 person, but probably cramped for, say, a couple of friends traveling together. There is a little back patio area that the main house shares, but I never saw anyone else there. The other neighboring houses overlook it but they aren't noisy or nosy neighbors. There's an AC in the apartment and 2 fans that kept the place VERY breezy and comfortable. The bathroom is clean and nice. Marien and Peter were really kind and communicative - my flights in and out of SJ were at super weird times and they were very flexible about me checking in early and checking out late. They even helped me and my friends out with finding some good spots for dinner. I loved San Juan and had a great time, and am hoping to come back next year. If I do I'll definitely stay here again.

This place is in a great location. Short walk to the beach. Short walk to restaurants and bars. It's a no frills place but it is clean and has what you need for your stay. Bed is comfortable. AC is cool. Shower is hot. Parking is a challenge in this part of the city but I had a great off street parking space, behind the gates. Peter and Marien were both welcoming and helpful. Great people and am thankful to have found them for our short stay. Can't wait to return. I highly recommend this little cottage for your stay in San Juan. Thanks again to you both!!!

This was a small but clean space with all the amenities need for your trip. Marien and Peter are great hosts and really responsive to all your needs. 2 min walk to a great beach, in a safe area with restraunts and grocery store.

Marien's place was beautiful, comfortable, and less than a minute from the beach. She was a lovely host and we appreciated their support during our stay.
