About Noel and Soraya Quinones (managed by Vinnie Matera and Ivan Melendez)

Soraya Sesto and Noel Quiñones are well known in the educational, artistic and philanthropic communities in Puerto Rico. Together they have created Casa Grande Interactive Communications. Noel is an accomplished, double Emmy award winning filmmaker. He has produced full length and short films; both feature and documentary. After the release of his feature film Flight of Fancy in 2000, Noel and Soraya were invited to conduct a series of motivational talks for the Puerto Rico Department of Education. Moved by the opportunity to provide additional tools to help students excel, Noel and Soraya dedicated two years to developing Operation Éxito, a broad-reaching innovative program to help students across the Americas to improve their academic achievement in the core areas of mathematics and science. For more than ten years, Operation Éxito has been hosting online and live academic competitions. The grand prize every year has been a $100,000.00 scholarship for the winner to use while attending the university of their choice. To date, thousands of students have benefited from the academic and motivational structure of Operation Éxito. (Éxito means success.)

Why Noel and Soraya Quinones (managed by Vinnie Matera and Ivan Melendez) chose Catedral

This home is a jewel. It is elegant, spacious and grand in the way that only historic, beautifully restored homes in the old city of San Juan can be. Built over 150 years ago, you will feel the living history of San Juan when you enter. This is an exceptional property and is being made available to the discerning tourists and business travelers.

What makes this villa unique

Unique doesn't begin to describe 4 Sol. This is a historic house, lovingly and expertly restored to a level of grandeur that is sure to impress the most discerning clients. There are fewer and fewer houses in Old San Juan that maintain their original flavor; so many of the once glorious houses have been cut up into apartments. This house is integral and proud. It boasts a scale that few houses in the old city still can. The view from the rooftop terrace alone is so panoramic, it will take your breath away.

Magical stay in old San Juan ! Round two!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you step into the home , it takes your breath away ! The home is up dated with each bedroom with its own bathroom and very roomy . Five bedrooms total with their own balcony . It has an awesome large kitchen with nice views to the neighboring Juan Ponce De Leon's historical home . There is an office connected to the downstairs bedroom, which makes it super convenient if you have a student or a workaholic . The roof top has a fantastic patio with comfortable furniture for your large group . The views are phenomenal ! You can see the ships cruising by and the beautiful historical building's of the city . There was a market close by which made it convenient to prepare meals at home for those lazy days or eating on the run . This has been our second time staying here and I think it's habit forming ! We leave this home with fond memories every time ! Vinnie is the manager and always calls us and listens to all our needs . There's the Puerta de San Juan down the street and many places close by , There's even a Marshals close by for those things you forgot to bring . When we stay here we really don't use our car . Our first stay we hired a photographer to capture our memories . We love exploring El Yunque Rainforest and had lunch close by at "Mi Vida Cafe ". There's so much to do in Puerto Rico and not enough time. It's our Magical home away from home !

Oh, hello luxury!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing experience at 4 Calle Sol. The property manager and house were awesome! Very professional, friendly, knowledgeable about the area & accommodating - dream it, they'll make it happen (transportation, personal chef, maid service, etc...). They made my family feel very welcome, at home and very spoiled. The house is simply immaculate. We felt like we were living in a house featured on MTV cribs. Each room is tastefully decorated like a modern retreat. The beds are extremely comfortable. The kitchen is awesome (minus a few hiccups with the appliances). We loved waking up having coffee and breakfast around the large table. The view from the rooftop terrace was stunning & simply breathtaking. It was a treat to watch the cruise and cargo ships sail by. The house is located in the very best, safe location - everything is in walking distance - cute boutiques, restaurants, shoppes and the Fort. You absolutely do not need a car. We took taxi's and Ubers everywhere we didn't walk to. This house is a dream. Be careful though, it's really large with multiple levels - we lost our kids for a few hours (they were hanging out in the wing on the lower leve, and we left with much stronger calves - there stairs are plenty)! We certainly look forward to future stays!

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The home is exactly what we were expecting and more. I visited with 4 other women for a weekend getaway.

We love the fact that we each had our own rooms and bathrooms.

We wanted to enjoy the area and we found Old San Juan to be very walkable and perfect for our group.

The concierge Rafael helped us with each of the goals that we had for the trip.

He helped us secure a private chef, car service from the airport, a photographer, as well as helped us plan an excursion on Saturday night for some salsa dancing with a private instructor.

He also had the house stocked with snacks from our grocery list so that we were able to have some waters and snacks as soon as we arrived.

The home is very well kept and looks exactly like the photos but even better in person. It has a charm that matches the beauty of Old San Juan.

We loved having the unobstructed views of the water from the top balcony.

All in all it was an amazing experience and we can't wait to return!

Beautiful property in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We booked this location last minute as another renter withdrew last minute (do not rent from Ricardo Rivera) and it was everything we were hoping it was. This 5-bedroom property (one queen-size bed in each) was just right for my group of 10 adults. We especially enjoyed the roof-top terrace view, grill, and seating area. With the exception of one room not having functioning AC we had no problems and the descriptions matches what you get. The property is about a 15 minute taxi ride from Condado beach and bars/clubs in San Juan. There are restaurants and bars within walking distance. The manager, Vinnie, was so helpful throughout the process from beginning to end and response via phone or text within a couple hours. I would definitely recommend this property to a large group (with no children).
