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 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.

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).

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!).
