The fact that this guest house is a block from the beach, instead of directly on it, may give some pause, but this is one of the best guesthouses in the area, and steps away from probably the best stretch of beach in Condado (the swatch from Parque del Indio to Ocean Park). The same can be said for its nearby sister property, the Acacia Boutique Hotel. A Spanish colonial-era manor Wind Chimes has a small pool and a tiled courtyard, plus a nice cafe/bar for guests. There are 22 differently-sized rooms, each with kitchens, ceiling fans, and air conditioners. Beds are comfortable, but some of the quarters could use a bit of TLC. They not dirty, just dated. Final perk: the setting in a nice, residential area with lots of good restaurants and bars.
