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.

ที่พัก

Definitely not like staying at a Holiday Inn, yet this is a well-maintained, artsy, usually airy (simple wooden-structure) house. All windows and doors are completely screened, and has a good air conditioner in the main bedroom and kitchen area.

I will not be staying here, but either I will be nearby to assist with any inquiries, or my wonderful home-keeper/associate will be readily available. (She may also be able to arrange day trips to the very nice beach/spa [private] club at the Hilton just 5 minutes away.)

สิ่งอื่นที่ควรรู้

Good seafood/typical Puerto Rican restaurants are located a couple short blocks away, as well as a traditional "Panaderia" (bakery/breakfast spot), barber shop, and great salsa classes also less than a 5-minute walk, next to where bands practice many evenings in the local small plaza.The wonderful, upscale Café Lucero just relocated (from the Ponce Art Museum) to a block away, and the Guancha cultural and eating boardwalk is just a few minutes drive; the city center (main Plaza) and other attractions are also located nearby. Catering of terrific food is available from a Spanish cook living in Ponce. Landline (free calls to P. Rico and USA) is available. Although it states 5 p.m. check-in, I can usually accommodate an earlier arrival (or later check-out, often). An extra fee is normally charged for one night stays.

Any unused portion of rent from a guest currently registered;
Any unused portion of rent from a guest that is scheduled to arrive, and wants to shorten the stay, to come in after the Hurricane Warning is lifted; and
Any advance rents collected or deposited for a reservation that is scheduled to arrive during the "Hurricane Warning" period.

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 diminishing in the Puerto Rican experience. Honestly, I would stay here again only if the price was more reasonable...say, 40 dollars a night. At that price at least you get what you pay for.

คำตอบจาก 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 for sleeping) and there is a bar on the corner which, while entirely silent Thursday night, played loud music until midnight Friday night. The dogs, however, never proved to be an issue. The black cat was super friendly! Just one more thing, if you are unfamiliar with Puerto Rico, hot water is not necessarily available in sinks.

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 apparent travels. Perfect for someone looking for the Local experience.

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 the floor and a foldable tourist bed. This neighbourhood is not exactly rich with shops or nightlife lets just say the surroundings looked like a former port area with a lot of warehouses and industrial buldings. Overall rather expensive for what it is.

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

Daniel was an amazing host to work with as well as the lady that oversaw the unit. We had a few bumps (left luggage in the house) but he helped my dad get everything sorted. The unit was as described, although a little hard to find at first. There were friendly neighborhood kids playing in the street that helped us find it. The house is close to the beach and a couple restaurants. We stayed there during La Vuelta cycling event for one night, just in-and-out since we got there at night and left by 6am the next morning. The dogs were noisy at first but they piped down after a while so we didn't have issues sleeping due to their noise (this was not a surprise as Daniel mentions this already). Very thankful Daniel worked with us to let us stay on such short notice.

Over the past 40 years I have traveled widely, conducted research (in anthropology and public health) in dozens of countries, mostly in Africa, Latin America and Asia, and taught many different types of students (recently at the Harvard University School of Public Health). Our 2012 book, "Tinderbox: How the West Sparked the AIDS Epidemic and How the World Can Finally Overcome It," was a New York Times Editor's Choice. You may read more about my work and background on my (UNC and tinderboxbook) sites. I love music (jazz and other kinds), good food, and hiking and biking, especially in this lovely part of North Carolina. The single most important thing to me is to be able to assist other people (family, friends, and "strangers") in any reasonable way that I can.
