Three friends and I stayed at Villa Oceania during our vacation to Puerto Rico in August 2013. First, the process of renting/reserving the house was extremely hassle-free. This was important to me and my group as we had never done this sort of rental before for a vacation. Secondly, upon our arrival at the house, we found that everything was nice, recently renovated (in the last 3-4 years), and exactly as the pictures portrayed. All of the rooms were clean and comfortable, but the crown jewels of the home were definitely the master bathroom and the very open kitchen/living room area. My group and I spent the first two hours of every day just lounging on the couch, recapping the day/night before.
The owner of the home is extremely organized, providing a guest guide that contained ideas for things to do and places to visit during our stay, and we found the location of the house to be very convenient to several hot spots in San Juan (e.g., all the bars/restaurants in Old San Juan, Plaza Las Americas, La Placita and Club Brava). Villa Oceania is literally a 10-15 minute cab ride away from everything in San Juan and walking distance to a nearby group of restaurants and bars (Tiguey, Levi's, and a cool little pizza spot that I'm forgetting the name of now).
In short, I would stay at Villa Oceania every time I visit San Juan. :)
Best Birthday in this beautiful house!

My family made me a surprise birthday in this house. It's so beautiful and comfy. The decoration is amazing and the master bathroom has a rain shower wish I loved. Is a really cozy home, great for staying with friends and family. It has a great location, the best thing is that the beach is just steps away! The area is super centric. Is near great restaurants, night clubs, stores like Walgreens, super markets, clothing stores. The house was really clean and well kept. It has clean bath and beach towels, clean sheets, you can cook if you want it has a nice kitchen equipment and utensils. Is a great house to relax and just have a great time!
Villa Oceania is an EXCELLENT Getaway!

A group of six of my closest girlfriends and I rented Villa Oceania for a girls’ weekend and we were absolutely blown away by the accommodations! As each person arrived, there were rounds of compliments about the exterior’s lawn and patio area, the interior’s cleanliness and upgraded features, and the overall location of the property – all of which suited us perfectly.
Our group was able to buy groceries and store them in the oversized kitchen with its new appliances and we all wanted the opportunity to shower in the master bath’s fully upgraded rain shower. The Villa is 2 blocks from the beautiful Ocean Park beach and within walking distance to several local/ethnic restaurants so it was extremely convenient for our car-less group. We were also just 5-10 minutes by cab from Condado, Isla Verde, and Old San Juan and 10-15 minutes from the SJU airport.
Our group decided on a beach-house instead of a condo so that everyone could be together as opposed to sectioned off in separate rooms and we couldn’t have made a better choice. If you are looking for a spectacular value for an excellent property, you will be thrilled with Villa Oceania. I know that we will DEFINITELY be staying there again, soon!
beautiful and centric vacation spot

I went on vacation with my boyfriend and we had such a great experience that we are planning our next stay at the house. I now find it senseless to stay at an expensive hotel when you can stay at this beautiful and comfy beach villa, to enjoy anything from a romantic getaway to a family vacation or even to stay for a business trip. The house comes with utilities, laundry room, A/C in every room, cooler and beach chairs, towels and linens, extra air mattress, blower, iPod docking station, ironing board, small BBQ, great patio space, nice place to lounge in patio, WIFI, BIG screen Tv and Dvd/blueray player in a cozy living room environment, amazing master bathroom and kitchen, and very beautiful decorating, etc. Most attractions (condado, isla verde, pinones, old san juan (sightseeing), and the best shopping mall : Plaza las Americas) are all nearby and there is a beautiful beach, track field, soccer field, and a play ground, which truly makes it great for all type of groups and they are all at walking distance. Its location is centric in ocean park, which is a quiet and safe gated neighborhood, about 10 minutes away from the airport, but not at all boring since there is so much to do and you can find a bit of everything nearby from sightseeing attractions, movie theaters, shopping malls and places to dine to nightlife, some of which can be seen in a information binder within the house made to better orient us-Thanks to the owner Nazli for being just amazingly helpful. Whenever i go to Puerto Rico this is always my number one choice- its a beautiful luxurious house and it just truly feels like a 'home away from home'.
Exceeded our Expectations

My wife, son and daughter-in-law really enjoyed our recent visit to the Villa. It exceeded our expectations and lived up to every photo. The room air conditioning units worked exceptionally well in keeping us all cool and comfortable. The kitchen had everything in the way of appliances to let us prepare several "eat in" meals. The beds were just right for good sleeping.
We felt very private and secure and just a short ride by car or taxi to the airport, shopping, restaurants and the local San Juan tourist attractions.
We're not sure when our travels will get us back to San Juan but the Villa will be the place we would check out first for availability. Our host Nazli was very gracious in seeing that we were properly oriented to enjoy all of the features of the Villa.
