Gianluca greeted us in the rain, late at night and showed us around the apartment. Him and Solmari were both very friendly and their kids and dog are all very friendly as well. We had no problems at all with our stay, the place is perfect for what we were looking for. The yard is great to hang out in and read or chat, the plants and trees alone can occupy quite a bit of time just to observe if you like that sort of thing. It's a really great place to sit back and relax.
Our apartment was fantastic, everything you need to cook meals was there. Our bed was comfy and there was lots of storage for all of our stuff as we were staying for two weeks. Everything was clean and we got fresh linens every week. There wasn't a full sized couch, just a chair that's shown in the picture but we weren't planning on spending too much time at home anyways. The guest book and suggestion booklet were great for recommendations.
The location was amazing. There's a supermarket around the corner, the beach is a couple blocks walk, and you have a choice of a few bus routes as well. When we wanted to go to Condado or Old San Juan we hopped on T5,53 ($0.75) or the random free green bus. You might have to wait for a while but bussing is cheap!
Quite a few great places for eats. Acapulco was amazing, the best tacos we've ever had. Kasalta was good for breakfast or cheap lunch, lots of pastries. Inca Chicken is a great deal for dinner. La B de Burro is also a good option for lunch or dinner. Many great places and all within a 15 minute walk.
I can't really think of anything that we didn't like. There was some loud music pumping at night from a ways away but it always calmed down before 11. We were always super tired so it didn't really bother us anyways.
All in all, it was a great stay. The location, hosts and apartments can't be beat.
Thanks so much to Solmari and Gianluca for sharing their home with us!

We stayed here for a week and really enjoyed ourselves. The property is situated about 2 blocks from the beach and bus stop which was nice. We paid .75 to go downtown the first 2 days. We also rented a car and were able to park on the street. The apt was the perfect size for 2 and the kitchen was well equipped for cooking. They had soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion in the bathroom. All we had to bring were personal items. We only had trouble sleeping the 1st night as there are bright lights coming in the room and while the curtains helped they didn't block it out. After that we were so tired from each day of exploring it became easy to ignore. Sol was very helpful in letting us know what was around and accommodating to any need or question we had. The hammock at the base of the stairs was a great place to swing, read and enjoy their lovely yard of beautiful plants. Sol and Gianluca have great style! With there being several units on the property it was really very quiet and no other guests disturbed us. We would definitely love to come back and will be recommending to any family and friends that choose to go to Puerto Rico.
