You have the entire second floor of the building , however there are other tenants or guests in the building. Therefore, please be considerate and courteous in regards to noise at times when people are usually resting or sleeping.
In efforts to conserve energy and keep AirBNB affordable please shut off A/C unit when not in use. ( And when leaving the house )

Please absolutely no smoking inside! Both balcony and terrace have a sand filled planter for cigarette buds .

I try to keep it very tropical with a lot of palms , shrugs and and other local plants if you are on a extended stay ( more then 4 days) pleeaaaase water my thirsty kids .

The keys are part of a locksystem that can't be copied . If a Key is lost the entire cylinder has to be exchanged with a new set of keys which is very costly . So please don't loose the keys in the sand on the beach , the ocean or s.o. ( replacement comes out of security deposit)

As with many modern structures in this antique building the sewage system is not built for things like baby wipes , female hygiene products or other item that may cause clogging. In the bathroom you will find hygiene bags to discard those items in the garbage.
Trash: If the trash bin in the kitchen is full please please bring the trash to the corner of Aponte/ Loiza where they have a big public trash container that's served twice a day . This is the Caribbean please don't keep trash or food source openly as it might attract "unwanted visitors" lol .

" My house is my castle " , so go ahead enjoy your time in Villa Aponte and be the "King of that Castle". (-;

Just spent 10 days at this beautiful Airbnb. Joerg's a great host- very responsive and offered plenty of suggestions and checked-in often. Good location in diverse and safe neighborhood. Walking distance from beach and a wide array of restaurants. The house is equipped with everything you would need and is very comfortable. Would highly recommend this place and plan on coming back! Thank you for sharing your house with us !

It's my second stay at Joerg's place and like the first time we had a lovely stay, such a beautiful and comfy place. The apartement has all the things you're going to need and more. Joerg is very diligent and on top of things. He replied to my messages very fast. The heat in PR could be very intense during the summer months and the fact that there are fans everywhere and ac in the rooms makes your stay at his place more enjoyable. After being outside all day in the heat, you look forward to go back to the apartment and cool down in the rooms with ac. It has lovely modern kitchen, a very nice balcony over looking the main road perfect to enjoy a conversation and glass of wine. The terrace in back with all the plants and privacy I think is my favorite spot of the place. And I love all the battery powered lights and candles everywhere in his place. They 're very convenient for whenever you need to get up at night and you don't want to bother people turning the lights on. I brought my family this time and they had great time as well. We walked to get food in Loiza street. There are so many restaurant along that street and within a few steps away from the apartment. I would most definitely stay again in the future.

A week wasn't enough for us to stay at this lovely residence. We felt right at home and was able to vibe with the neighborhood impeccably. Definitely was a great location that kept us close to all tourist attractions while also keeping us grounded to enjoy and experience the Puerto Rican lifestyle and be apart of the culture. Joerg was a courteous and very responsive host. He recommended all the best spots and was gracuous and prompt in answering all questions. Would highly recommend this spot to anyone interested.

Joerg's place is a very comfortable apartment a short walk from the beach and local restaurants - the beds were very comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped for preparing yummy meals. The back veranda is lovely and has an outdoor shower that is perfect for a refreshing post beach rinse. Street parking was easy to find out front or close by but you don't need a car to explore from this apartment.

Again, as I mentioned. Joerg was extremely kind and very accommodating. The house had everything anyone could possibly want. The area is excellent and the local restaurants were truly amazing. All walking distance. My first thought when I arrived was, this area is far too residential. However, after walking around and going in and out of stores, restaurants, etc. I really started to feel at ease. My wife and I will certainly come back. Great experience.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Joerg and his place. His place was clean, safe, and filled with anything and everything we could possibly need for our stay and more. I'm not even sure how to write a review that will do it justice. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was beyond expectation, and the front and back patio are filled with gorgeous tropical plants. Traveling with 3 kids isn't always easy, but we felt at home the moment we stepped inside Joerg's place. It was SO well equipped and set up for a relaxing vacation. Our kids were so sad to leave, they were begging us to let them live there. My only recommendation would be renting a car- we were thankful we did! There are lots of restaurants walking distance, but it was nice to explore more of the island.

I literally tried to find something that Jorge didn't have, but I failed. His place was so well put together that you could literally pack some clothes and just jump on the plane, he'll have everything else. This is the spot your grandmother would pick for you because it has everything! Jorge was an incredible host and made sure I was fully satisfied! I'm definitely visiting that place again.
