“nice getaway house”
Reviewed 9 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Nice home, close to everything. Host was informative. Air conditioning in only in 2 of the room upstairs. Amenities list washer and dryer, but at get-in, was told no washer/dryer use. Luckily host let us use (only 2 small loads). Amenities should be updated if they can't be used. Beautiful home. Price on medium to HIGH range.

“Great location- did not like extra fees!”

This house was close to the beach, restaurants, and the airport. Well stocked, expect for no blankets. I rated a 3 because from an advertised fee of $145 to $165 for the next two nights (weekend) we ended paying $750 for 3 nights or $250 per night. Flipkey charged 19% on fees and we were charged $90 for extra people. NO extra people fees were not advertised anywhere! There were 7 of us and we choose this house because it read that it slept 8, with no mentioned of extra fees. That was disappointing.

Brenda, We are happy to know that you all were comfortable and fully enjoyed the house and the surrounding area. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is our first ever three-star rating which on one side saddens us a bit. You see, what you are claiming about the rates is not in our control. First FlipKey does charge a steep booking fee (19% in this case), then when they advertise the home it uses the lowest rating for the advertising, and finally, based on what you say, they do not call out an extra person fee openly. An extra people fee is the norm since there are more lines to wash and we provide bathtowels, washclothe and beach towels as well as having 5 different sleeping surfaces in the home. As a fix, one idea is that we write this in the description, but not everyone takes the time to read this. In this particular case, the base rate is the weekday rate for 4 people or less of $145, but we do have a $165 weekend rate and in your particular case to help out we provided you a discounted $15 per person over 4 people. In the end $250 per night for seven people in a unique two-story home situated 2 blocks from the beach is hard to find. We are proud to offer our guests with wonderful clean & comfortable lodging, in a fantastic location and with great value.

A las ordenes siempre!

House is well located: Near the beach, airport, old San Juan, El Yunke... Yoa and Daniel really took care of us. They were the best tourist guides for us and suggested many places to visit and activities for the familly.

It could have been great to have more towels available for the familly. But this is a detail.

Thank you Remi. Meeting your precious family was a treat for us, and especially for Poly. You are blessed with Princesses! We are happy to know that you enjoyed your stay in Casa Estrella and that our recommendations were very helpful.
You mention that it is just a detail, but it is important for us to clarify that, as usual, each bathroom was supplied with towels and each guest was provided one bath towel, one beach towel and a washcloth. Additionally you were granted access to the linens closet and to the laundry (washer/dryer).

We enjoyed having you and hope to host you again.

Poly says thank you to the girls for the 'Frozen' gifts!

Gracias!

“Cozy home in paradise!”

Casa Estrella was the perfect getaway for my husband and me and a small group of our friends. The house was very clean, cozy and full of charm. Yoa was a fantastic host! On our first morning, the coffee maker broke and, within hours, Yoa brought over a brand new coffee maker. She was extremely responsive and helpful in guiding us through local restaurants, activities and even parties for New Year's Eve. Casa Estrella has a fantastic balcony with 3 hammocks for evening cocktails on the breezy patio and the patio below is perfect for morning coffee. Little Coquis (tiny frogs) all around to sing you to sleep at night. The beds are super comfortable and the bedrooms are full of light. The location is great for a home base if you want to explore the island. There is a great beach just 3 blocks away. The neighborhood is very urban with a fantastic coffee shop around the corner, bakeries, markets, restaurants and night life all within walking distance. Parking is very easy on the street and the house is located within just a few blocks of the highway (although you can't hear any of the noise) to get you to and from the airport and other points west and east of San Juan. Overall, we had a fantastic trip to Puerto Rico and a lovely stay at Casa Estrella! and thank-you so much, Yoa, for all of your help and guidance! It was a pleasure meeting you! Until next time… salud!
