“Place is very cosy. Me and my husband really appreciated all the touches and air conditioners. Place is close to bunch of different restaurants, you just need to walk and explore. Maria is amazing. We were super late from the airport and she had to meet us in person because she was worried)) sorry Maria =)) To get to hotel zone we would spend 150-300 pesos depends on the beach. Averall, great place!!!” - anna

We felt safe and we were very comfortable. Location was great, restaurants and grocery close by, beach a short walk. Every amenity we could need was available and the A/C units worked really well!!! I recommend the place highly!!!” - Kathleen

“Our stay in PR was amazing because of Maria Jose’s place. The apartments were absolutely beautiful and clean. Our group had 9 people we were all very comfortable!Any needs or questions we had were answered ASAP! The apartments are in such a great area with so much around! It is very convenient!! The beach is less than 5 mins away! I definitely recommend the host and their place! Thank you so much Maria!” - luz

“We were only in San Juan for two nights, one of which was a travel day. The first night, we got in unexpectedly late -- which always tends to make me nervous -- but Maria made sure we had every code we needed with detailed descriptions of where to park and how to get in. It made everything really easy! The beach is less than a 5 min walk away, with a coffee shop on the way and a little hotel's breakfast spot right there on the beach. The space is well-located, stylish, and picturesque with it's courtyard and outdoor shower. We really had the best time walking around Old San Juan, seeing the Castillo, and enjoying local street fairs. A perfect stay! xx” - molly

“Very nice place, very nice location next to the mall, restaurants and mercado. Ideally for those who seek a less touristic place. Very spacious space, very clean, with ac in the living room and in the bedroom. I recommend Maria's place. She's very friendly and quick to answer us.” - Lyn

“Maria Jose and team were super response and ready to help with anything that we needed. The apartment was stunning and does not disappoint! Super quick distance from the airport and the location is fantastic, walking distance to restaurants, bars, and Walgreen's to pick up items we missed in our travel. I highly recommend staying at Maria Jose's place and we look forward to future's stays there!” - jasmine

“Great central location. Uber was super easy in this area. Spacious apartment with acs in each room was definitely a plus. Wished there were more mirrors with lighting but overall beautiful place. Would highly recommend” - osemere

“Maria was a great host and extremely prompt, even when helping me with an unexpected parking issue! The apartment and beds were so comfortable! We also were extremely impressed by the beaches nearby, as well as the local restaurants. I would trust Maria as a host if I ever return to Puerto Rico. Thanks!” - tracy

“Beautiful apartment - it feels like how I would design my dream apartment. Felt like home but everything is sparkly clean. Great area (we had stayed in two other parts of San Juan before and this was our favorite). Beach is 2 mins away. Cool highstreet with lots of foodie options. Amazing yoga studio 1 min away. We ended up extending our stay AND coming back again. The apartment is in a courtyard with 3-4 other flats. Most the people staying have been before and returned. Maria was super friendly and helpful. THANK YOU” - Katie

“My family and I stayed at Maria’s place for a week. I cannot express enough how amazing the location is and the cleanliness of the home. 4 min walk to ocean park beach, which is less crowded than other beaches. The set up of the unit, which includes laundry and AC in all living spaces was fantastic!” - Mirna

“The best location in San Juan and the best listing for its size & price! A lovely host, would definitely stay there again. Could not recommend more highly!” - Cristina

“Our stay at Maria and Maneul’s apartment was amazing! They were very helpful, the location was a short three minute walk to the beach, and close to great restaurants and nightlife, all while being quiet. If you’re looking for a non-resort San Juan experience, this place is spot on. Would definitely recommend and go back for another stay in the future!”- Jake

(opalo apt - may 2019)

“Very cool spot in San Juan with a great deal of natural sunlight. Not in a super touristy area, so don't have the crazy hustle and bustle of a tourist location. 5 minutes walking from the beach. Cute bakery about a 3 min walk. 1 block south has a great deal of restaurants and a Walgreen. Check-in/check-out were very easy, and you are a quick and cheap Uber ride from any location you want to reach in San Juan.” - aryan

“Maria's place is AMAZING! We and our family had the best time here. We booked multiple apartments at her location for the week of our wedding in Puerto Rico, so family could stay close together and we could be in a beautiful and warm space. Every apt at La Rosa de los Vientos exceeded our expectations. María take care of every single detail of your time there. It shows that, her guests experience is her TOP priority, and you see it on everything. The place is sooo beautiful, full of details that made us feel very welcome. Beautifully decorated, implacable clean, the apt have the essentials, quality soft bed sheets, comfortable pillows, towels, beach towels, free washer and dryer to share, and a privet one inside the Aquamarina apt, and more... There is a parking available for a super reasonable price, ask María about it! The location is PERFECT close to everything, 5 min walk to the beach! We recommend Maria's place 150% . She is available to help with anything, a GREAT host! Thank you for everything!”- Nora y Jon

“You could spend time looking for other properties for your stay in San Juan, but none will be as good as the Value, Service, Responsiveness, Hospitality, and Location that Maria Jose provides. We were lucky enough to stay at esmerelda for our first trip to San Juan, and it was absolutely fantastic. Value fit perfectly into our budget, Service was unmatched, Responsiveness was remarkably quick and attentive, Hospitality made the stay feel like home, and the central Location was the perfect balance between beach/neighborhood. Maria Jose is the shining example to measure all other AirBnB hosts against. She gets it and we'll can't wait to visit PR again soon. Maria Jose has other listings on AirBnB, so find the one that works best for your trip and book right away. For more details visit (Website hidden by Airbnb) - there's links there that will feed you back into AirBnB. Safe travels and enjoy PR.”- Neil

“From the moment we arrived, La Rosa de los Vientos had everything we needed. It felt like a home away from home. Maria was a great host, accesible to us at all times. We enjoyed our week long stay, the patio, the outdoor shower and amazing location.” - juan

“Great place! Easy check-in, friendly host and neighbors.”- tor ivar

(amatista apt - april 2019)

“Hands-down a lovely home and easily a good choice for a large family or even just friends visiting PR. It is close enough to most parts of new and old San Juan and right next to some of the happening areas near the city. Manuel and Maria we're definitely really helpful for our questions and quite friendly. There are many beautiful homes under them and anybody wanting a nice clean and spacious place for a vacation should consider these listings. We had fun during our stay there in Puerto Rico.”- Mayur

“Maria and Manuel were wonderful hosts. They were easy to communicate with and made us feel very welcome. The bnb was decorated well with anything you might need. The neighborhood was a quick walk to the beach and restaurants, but could get a bit noisy with the cars at nighttime. Lovely stay!”- Lindsay

“100% would recommend to anyone. This was our first time in Puerto Rico and the location is perfect. Area is very safe and less touristy than Condado. Ocean Park was recommended by a lifelong resident of the island, he was 100% right. The hosts were extremely accommodating and friendly. Best Airbnb experience yet!” - zac

“Manuel’s Airbnb was spacious and beautiful for our group of four. Perfect location and a bonus that parking is included if you want to rent a car. We lost power one time during our stay in the early morning hours, but otherwise we had absolutely no issues. The breeze throughout the home is wonderful and the view was amazing. I would rebook this place again and highly recommend it for those traveling to PR! Beautiful!” - bahia

“The place is beautiful and as-pictured, and the view from the windows over Cancun was even better than I expected; it especially impressed me the first morning. There was coffee in a glass jar beside the coffee maker and both matches and a lighter for the gas grill. The fridge was very effective at keeping things cool, and you have all the dishes and utensils you need to cook. There is an Oxxo very nearby; take your right when leaving Kokai and the Oxxo is across the street to the left. You can get tortillas, milk, and purified water there. Chedraui, the Mexican Walmart, is about a 20 minute walk away, down the main street (Tulum, I think?) and to the left, and the wonderful Parque Palapass is about another 8 minutes further on the same side of the street down one of the side alleys with restaurants. I particularly enjoyed Parque Gaia outside Kokai; take two lefts and go straight and you can't miss it. You'll see the entrance from the living room balcony to your left. I also got to see Cancun's Carnival my last night there, which was pretty neat. This is a great location in a great place. I felt very safe there.” - christopher
