Interaction with guests
This is not a guest house. The apartment is best suited for the independent traveler. Although the apartment is located in our home premises, it is completely independent. Once we show you the place and hand the keys, you are on your own. We are happy to share our beautiful home with travelers looking for a more authentic experience but please keep in mind this is our home. We live here with our two kids, cat & dog. Sometimes there are friends over for dinners or an afternoon BBQ in the garden, which you are welcome to join.

About the neighbourhood
The house is located in a quite residential neighborhood between Isla Verde and Condado (the main hotel areas) and is minutes away by car from the LMM International Airport and from the blue cobble stone streets and colorful facades of Old San Juan.

The area is full of amenities such as restaurants, taquerias, pizzerias, cafes, trendy bars, yoga studios, boutiques, surf shops, local fruit & vegetable stands, groceries, 24/7 drugstores, 24/7 supermarkets and a public park with a running track, tennis courts, a soccer field and a children's playground that face the ocean.

The house is located near a public housing project, but as in any other city, just avoid that area and you are fine.
Getting around
Main streets and highway are easily accessible and the area is served by public transportation. Nearest bus stop is in front of the supermarket just around the corner. Take T5 & D53 to/from airport, Isla Verde, Condado & Old San Juan.

We strongly suggest in renting a car as it is the easiest way to move around, specially if you plan on doing daytrips outside the metro area. Charlie & Target car rental are both locally own. Otherwise, all major companies have offices at the airport. Online booking gets the best deals.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport: 5.0 km
Our house is very close to the Luis Munoz Marin International Airport. A taxi ride should be around $20 and it should take no more that 10mn, depending on traffic. Just give our address to the driver. Don't say you are going to La Casa Blanca as there is a hotel under the same name in Old San Juan & will only create confusion.

If you rent a car at the airport or nearby is very easy to find your way here. In that case, the entrance to the neighborhood is from Cacique street on the east side of Parque Barbosa (all other streets leading to ours are closed by gates). Go into Cacique and turn right on Teniente Matta. Drive to the end of the street & park wherever you find a free spot without blocking any driveways. Our house is #63
