“Wonderful time in Casa Estrella”
Hi everyone! I recently went to PR with my two kids (5,2), my partner and both of our mothers. We decided on Casa Estrella because of the large space it provided (versus hotel rooms and condo rentals). We all LOVED the house and the neighborhood. Unfortunately we never physically met Yoa (she did message us great ideas) but Daniel (her husband) did stop by with toiletries and asked if we needed anything and if we were okay. Yoa was kind enough to purchase groceries for us before our arrival since we had a very late flight. Besides mosquitoes (which are unevitable in tropical places) we do not have any complaints or anything bad to say. Yoa has beach chairs and boogie/surf boards at the house for guests to use too, and the hammock swing (and kid DVDs that she has in house were defintiely favs for the kids. ABOVE and BEYOND any stay at a hotel!
“Unique, Down-to-Earth Escape”
Casa Estrella was beautifully crafted with love by Yoa and her family. We spent three nights and really enjoyed exploring the area and relaxing on the patios. There was more than enough space for 4 of us in the three ample bedrooms. The neighborhood was a little intimidating upon arrival (very authentic Puerto Rico), but by the end of our visit we felt right at home. The area is definitely not a tourist trap. There are lots of awesome local restaurants, bars and the grocery/convenience store was perfect! The locals were amazingly friendly and went above and beyond with everything from directions to buying drinks! Yoa was also incredibly accommodating and helpful with suggestions for where to eat, what to do during the day, etc. She really made our trip more than we expected.
“Yoa and her family helped make our vacation awesome.”
The house has charm and it is obvious that time was spent to make it feel homey. I am so pleased to have met Yoa and her family.
“Una gran experiencia en familia”
Casa Estrella es una casa con mucho encanto porque cada cosa que encuentras ahi tiene una historia y un significado, eso la hace especial. Yoa por su parte es una persona increíble y siempre está buscando la manera de ayudarte y hacerte sentir como en casa. La casa está ubicada en una zona muy central a todo, tienes playa, supermercado, restaurantes, etc. a poca distancia.
“Hammocks with pleasant breezes”
This is a lovely home with plenty of charm. Walking distance to the beach and great restaurants. Yoa is very friendly with excellent tips of where to go and what to see. You will not be ready to leave when your time is up.
“Warm comfortable homey home, centric with friendliest & helpful”
We all loved this home. It is warmly decorated, very clean and had all of the amenities needed. Well equipped with perfectly working wifi, coffee machines, blender and other kitchen utensils. The host, Yoa, was very kind to pick us up at the airport, provide a very informative check-in and let us in on the best places to visit and eat at. She had PuertoRican coffee for us! There are many options of restaurants right by the house including Kasata, where Obama ate during his visit to the island, and Cueva del Mar, which offers seafood and is only one block from the house and is totally local, no tourists. The neighborhood is very well located, a few steps to the beach, a 75 cent bus ride or $15 cab ride to Old San Juan, walking distance to Condado. We rented a car to visit the Rainforest and to visit the bio bay in Fajardo. Our favorite was the hammocks in the breezy balcony!
“Great home, wonderful host, fabulous location!!!”
We stayed at Casa Estrella with 3 couples and absolutely loved our time here. Yoa was so warm and welcoming and made us feel right at home. She has put her heart and soul into her house, it is important to her that her guests are comfortable and have a good time. She went above and beyond prior to our arrival by emailing suggestions about things to do and see in San Juan and around Puerto Rico. While we were there she was quick to address any of our suggestions for improvements. The house had all the amenities needed. The location was great for us. It is located in a local neighbourhood, close to the beach, restaurants and stores. We felt completely safe walking around the neighbourhood at night (although we were always in a group). It was an easy bus ride to Old San Juan and very close to the airport. Our favorite area of the house was the front porch!! A great place to sit and visit and enjoy the outdoors. Once the backyard is finished that will be another great place to hang out. Thank you Yoa for everything!!!
Response from the owner Karen, Your group was lovely to host! Thank you so much for the touching 'Thank You' card left behind by you all. Your message has energized us so much on this new venture of hosting in our Casa Estrella! Please come visit again! Con Amor, Yoa & Daniel
“Great Location - close to everything!”
Yoa was an excellent host and went above and beyond to make our stay nice. We are not used to heat where we come from, so it was a little warm for us . . .but it was so nice to run to local eateries, run to the beach, all so close to the house. The house was impeccably clean. We would certainly do it again and highly recommend this casa!
Response from the owner Thank you Shamie! I hope your family enjoyed the Caribbean cruise vacation :) it was nice to meet and host you all. Thank you for leaving the house clean. Next time you should all plan to stay for longer than one evening! This October/November season was particularly hot in Puerto Rico, even more so than over the summer, which was uncharacteristically rainy too. December-April are more cooler months if you plan to come back and visit. Please do! Gracias, siempre a la orden, Yoa & Daniel
“Don’t miss it when visiting San Juan...”
Staying in Casa Estrella can definitely improve anybody's San Juan experience! The location is superb with only minutes of walk to groceries, drug stores, restaurants and, most importantly, to the beach. The house per se has everything necessary for safe and comfortable short- or long-term stay. Although, there were only three of us staying in the house, it is spacious enough to accommodate up to six persons and even to host big parties. The house is newly renovated and furnished, so everything one touches, uses or looks at is neat and clean. The owners applied a lot of creativity to decorate the house, therefore, one can enjoy not only comfort, but also aesthetically pleasing atmosphere. Yoa and Daniel were very hospitable and always ready to respond to our slightest request (although we didn't have any, because everything was there beforehand). I hope that new tenants will do their best to preserve everything, so when we come next we will still be able to enjoy what we used to know. In conclusion, Casa Estrella can satisfy the most demanding taste, so don't miss it when visiting San Juan!
Response from the owner It was a pleasure to have you and family in Casa Estrella over the summer. Thank you for taking care of the house as if it were your own. We too hope to have you all back and that the future guests take care of the house so that when you all come again you will find it even better ;) It was an honor to meet you and to get a glance at the important work you are doing for humanity! Spasiva, gracias, thank you & see u again! Yoa & Daniel
“Cozy, spacious home with a relaxing tropical ambiance”
The place is a great home away from home - very spacious, lots of light, nice kitchen. It is fully equipped, so you just need to bring your clothes. The owner (who decorated the place) has travelled a lot, so the house decor has an international touch. The house is very well ventilated - we stayed in May but did not have to use aC. It is located in a residential neighbourghood - a plus for sleeping in late as it is quiet, but you'd need to drive to tourist attractions. Great place for someone who wants to live like a local, not visit as a tourist.
