A rare chance to experience the genuine Puerto Rican life that very few tourists ever get to see. My humble but lovely little home is located in the traditional fishermen's (and gradually upcoming) neighborhood of "Ponce Beach," a peaceful, friendly area near a waterfront, some restaurants, the Guancha open-air cultural boardwalk, etc., and is not far from the city center and other attractions.

While the host does have this place listed as a Puerto Rican experience, I have lived in Puerto Rico in the past and have stayed at a better insulated and cooled off house. For the amount of money one pays I would hope that the owner could invest in some insulation without dimini…

Ответ от Daniel:
I'm very sorry to hear that your experience was not entirely positive. I'm also a bit surprised, as I informed you --before confirming your reservation -- that although in general the feedback on my place has been very positive, I have occasionally had bad experiences specifically with one-night stays. I explained to you that, due to fees the company charges, in addition to needing to pay my cleaning person for two visits (one to clean/prepare the place and then again to clean up afterward), it's basically something of a lose-lose situation both for myself and the renter, who must pay an overly high rate for the place. For that very reason I have been declining most one-night requests; however, you were (when you contacted me, at the last moment/just hours before you checked in) very insistent on needing a place, so I reluctantly agreed to rent it to you (and accepted somewhat less than my normal charge). Even so, you now complain that it is overpriced. I also don't understand your point about "insulation"? The AC system works very well (in half the house, as advertised), and you are the first to make this complaint. Furthermore, you left the place somewhat of a mess (dirty diapers in the garbage without using a plastic bag in the container, etc.) and -- for the first ever since I've been renting out my place -- you left both doors unlocked! To be honest, this experience has reminded me again that it's really not worth the one-night stays, including that the type of people looking at the last moment have often not been the type of guest I prefer to have. Thanks for your feedback, Daniel

The place is just as described: a real barrio experience. It was a way to experience a different side of Puerto Rico, and we felt perfectly safe. Some things to note: the AC is only for the first bedroom and kitchen area (the other bedroom has two fans which are adequate enough f…

Great spot! It's just as Daniel advertised and he was very accommodating. If you're travelling through Ponce and need some space, stop in!

Daniel's place was exactly what we needed. It was a central location for exploring Ponce where we could get some sleep and see the less 'tourist' side of Puerto Rico. He and Coloma were super helpful and were great communicators. The place is comfortable and decorated from his ap…

The host is a great communicator, directions were spot-on, the home is basic but very comfortable and it's in a very quiet and safe part of town.

We had a decent stay at Daniels place. The house is just as described and has all basic amenities. One AC unit was not enough to cool down the whole place and it did get little warm during the night. There is also only one real bed in this place the other two were a matress on t…

Ответ от Daniel:
Dear Tomasz, I'm very sorry that your stay was not as good as it could have been. I feel that I provided what is required and also as is described on my site listing. For example, it states that there is a good air conditioner in the main bedroom. (There are also 4 good fans in the rest of the house, and FYI you are the first guest who has complained about it being too warm; in the past some people have complained about the dogs barking, but now that both the nearby neighbors' dogs have died, it is much quieter.) About the beds, FYI I have recently purchased a (very comfortable) second bed and double mattress (with a futon bed now in the third bedroom). Regarding the neighborhood, as is stated on the listing and as we discussed both prior to and during your stay, Ponce is nothing like San Juan: there are certainly some interesting places to hear music and otherwise experience the local cultural life (and I went out of my way to give you various suggestions on where to go, both in Ponce as well as in other parts of the island) but yes, it's not as if you just walk out the door on any given evening and you will immediately run into live music and shops and so forth. (That said, many guests have commented that, for example, the little bar on the corner is often the most interesting and lively place in the whole area where to meet people, etc., and the Guancha is usually very lively and is only minutes away...) And we also discussed the issue of price, that unfortunately due to the fees that AIRBNB charges and for other reasons, one-night stays come out too expensive for the guest, I agree (and agreed) with you. But my only other option would be to not allow one-night stays, and you were keen on finding something for just one night in Ponce; I'm sorry but I cannot afford to rent the place (involving paying for two separate visits by my cleaning lady, etc.) for less than this for only one night. Next time I suggest that you base your decision to stay on the information provided, instead of complaining afterward about things that we had already discussed prior? Take care, Daniel

This was real Puerto Rican experience. Description of the place was accurate. House is "bohemian" style as can be seen in the pictures. Our host Daniel was helpful, flexible and easy to contact. He had good description of all the little things how everything works in his house.

Unusual opportunity to experience a "barrio popular," in a colorful, friendly, authentically funky (and somewhat run-down but gradually improving/"cool"), laid-back area of Ponce. (See the sunset phot…

Транспорт

Easy on-street parking. Area is good for bicycling and walking. There is some public transportation, although the buses are not always dependably on time. A bicycle can be borrowed.
