LA CASA BLANCA| ARCO 2 Bedrooms Apartment
Blocks away from the beautiful Ocean Park beach, this independent apartment is on the first floor of our two floors house. A charming space with beautiful antique Spanish floors, high ceiling and arched kitchen. It has a comfortable living room, full kitchen, one shower room & two bedrooms.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need including olive oil, coffee, tea, sugar, salt and spices & opens up to the living area with an eating counter top.
The living area is spacious an fills with natural light during the day. It has books about PR & things to do as well a a mini neighborhood guide curated by us with our favorite spots.
Each bedroom has a queen size bed, a very quite AC & ceiling fan.
The shower room is spacious with cotton towels, body wash, shampoo, conditioner & hand soap.

The house is located near a public housing project, but as in any other city, just avoid that area and you are fine.
The present economic crisis has been & still is hard on the the island, thus reflecting itself in our daily lifes. Our neighborhood is not as beautiful as it once was since many owners have lost their homes and abandoned properties are ubiquitious. None the less, it remains a great & safe location to move around.

Myself, my husband and another couple stayed in this home for 3 days. We were pleasantly surprised that the home looked as beautiful as the pictures we were shown. The home comfortably fit two couples. Each couple had their own bedroom with an air conditioner. The owners do a wonderful job of keeping the home in perfect order and ready for visitors. The owners are so nice and accommodating. They made us feel at home, showed us where to go. They even had a book printed out showing attractions with pamphlets of services and points of interest.
I could not have ask for a better home to stay in.
If you want to get away from the usual hotel/motel. I highly recommend renting this home. It was walking distance from the beach and lots of food choices. It is a short cab ride or bus ride from Old San Juan, the airport and the cruise ship terminal.
The only thing I would change was the beds. They were a bit uncomfortable but we still got a good night's sleep.

Sol & Gianluca have made an oasis! We stayed in their two bedroom apartment for a week...and it was simply amazing! We enjoyed the beautifully decorated space and ample amenities. Sol & Gianluca (who live upstairs) were always available for questions and recommendations for restaurants and tourist attractions. We traveled with our 1 1/2 year old son and were please at how child friendly the space was. We felt comfortable and incredibly humbled by this famiy's hospitality. The house is located walking distance from the park and beach and there are plenty of restaurants and shopping areas nearby. Old San Juan was about a 15-20 min drive away. Would recommend you rent your own vehicle. They have parking and the compound is securely gated. Thank you Sol, Gianluca and family!! We enjoyed ourselves and San Juan!!
