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.)

Noel and Soraya Quinones (managed by Vinnie Matera and Ivan Melendez) purchased this house in 2013

Why Noel and Soraya Quinones (managed by Vinnie Matera and Ivan Melendez) chose Old San Juan

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 house 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.

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).

This is an amazing place for big or small group

  • 5 of 5

The place is very tastefully decorated. Location is a very big advantage as its right in old san Juan we could visit many clubs and places without taking our car out . Parking is a big challenge so not having to take the car out was great :)

The place was clean and well kept I loved the fact that each room had its own lil patio . We were a group of 10 and every one had their privacy when needed .

Love the place. Thanks Vinnie for the wonderful recommendation and great service .

Most Relaxing Vacation in a Long Time!

  • 5 of 5

Our San Juan vacation was the most enjoyable and restful trip we have had in a long time! The layout of 4Sol was perfect for our group of 5 couples because we could all come together for meals in the centrally located kitchen that was beautifully modern, yet we had so much privacy in our own spacious rooms that we could peacfully retreat at any time for a nap. I slept like a baby every night in this house!

More great features of 4Sol are it's location and it's VIEW! We could walk just about anywhere in 5-10 minutes. We walked to all the bars and restaurants, and were able to site see daily by walking out the front door. We went running most mornings and discovered new places every time.

The house has the perfect view from the rooftop patio and we enjoyed it quite often. The rooftop was the perfect location to start and end every day. We enjoyed the 4Sol and its' view so much that we hired a chef to cook one night for the group so we could relax and continue to enjoy the house.

The house was very clean, had a grand feel, it was uncluttered, centrally located, spacious, offered lots of extra living spaces, and lots of technology (which we never used because we were too busy enjoying everything else around us). I would definitely recommend this house to any party -- big or small.

Luxury and stunning views

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed the stay in 4Sol. The house has an excellent location, away from any street noise and with unobstructed views of the San Juan Bay and the Governor's mansion. The kitchen is very well appointed and made for an excellent reunion space, especially during rainy afternoons, when the roof terrace couldn't be used.

Highly recommended for large families or two couples (be prepared to climb stairs all the time!).

Wonderful location - gorgeous rental!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our family during a weekend destination wedding. Could not have been happier with our choice.

The location overlooking the bay was fantastic. Our adult children walked in and all commented that - with all beautiful appointments - it looked like something off MTV "Cribs". The marble floors and ironwork make it special from the moment you enter. We LOVED the roof terrace - the view was spectacular. Great beds, loved all the private terraces and balconies. Excellent proximity to everything you come to Old San Juan to experience. Vinnie (property rental agent) was super responsive and helpful. Would HIGHLY recommend with these tiny caveats:

1. As has been listed in other reviews, there is limited-to-no parking. We had so many people to transport, we ended up renting a van and found a parking garage a couple of blocks away. Just be aware that they are not kidding when they say "no parking available"

2. This property is definitely an "adult only" type of place - it is not for children or aged (we had both in our party - the couple with small children decided they would be more comfortable in a nearby hotel because of all the marble floors - and some of the elderly in the party could not navigate the steps more than once a day, so they mostly stayed on the street level).

3. We had a little difficulty in regulating the temperature with the a/c thermostats. No matter how much we turned the thermostat degrees up, the bedrooms were cold at night. Not a problem for portions of our party, but we could not locate additional throws/covers for the ones who were too chilly. I know this shouldn't seem like a problem in a city where it's 85 degrees most of the time, but it was.

4. They were down one employee at the time of our arrival, so our only contact on-site did not speak English - we downloaded an app that could translate for us.

5. Also, for extended stays, the addition of a washer/dryer would be a welcome addition.

None of these inhibited our enjoyment of the property and would highly recommend.

Elegant historical house

  • 5 of 5

This property is an elegant historical house in Old San Juan, recently renovated to include modern touches. The rooftop deck, complete with lounge furniture and gas range provides excellent views of the boats on the way into the San Juan bay. Location was a particularly nice feature of the house, located on the edge of the Old San Juan district adjacent to the Casa Blanca and El Morro Fort. This location was close enough to walk to the nearby restaurants and plaza for shopping, yet secluded enough to be quiet for a relaxing vacation.

All in all, this house is highly recommended for a week-long stay with a large family or group of good friends.
