About the property

Ask about our 3 units in Old San Juan

This is a charming Old San Juan first floor apartment in the San Sebastian street, close to all the restaurants in the famous San Sebastian Street. There, you will experience as a local this magical 500 year old city called Old San San Juan. It has two bedrooms, two interior terraces, and a cozy living/dining room with all the modern amenities of large plasma TV within the ambiance of a high ceiling colonial apartment.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed. The master opens to the balcony so that you can enjoy the master room interior terrace.

The second bedroom has a bunk bed which has a queen bed in the lower part and a twin bed on the top. It has a window that opens to an interior patio that will let you experience the most incredible cross ventilation of colonial times. Both bedroom have air conditioning at the desired temperature and ceiling fans if that is your fancy.

The living/dining area has its own a/c unit and two ceiling fans so that you can combine the ventilation that you wish.

The full kitchen facilities will allow your to explore your culinary fancy on those days that your chose not to eat in one of the one hundred restaurants within walking distance in Old San Juan.

The apartment is located within a block of San Cristobal a 27 acre military fortress built by the Spaniards during colonial times and in active use until WWII. From the apartment you will relax looking San Sebastian street, famous for its yearly festival in the month of January. The apartment is located in the residential part of San Sebastian but within two blocks of the bustling and partying of the street, which is the address for many of the best restaurants and bars of the city.

Half a block north is the most amazing view of the Atlantic ocean and one block lies what I call the 'front lawn' of the apartment: a beautiful grass area of the fort that is tucked between the fort, Norzagaray street and tne Ocean that will allow you to practice your tai chi chuan, read a book or smoke a good cigar.

If gambling is your cup of tea, the apartment is located six blocks from Sheraton Hotel that has a 10,000 square feet casino.

There are over fifteen public squares in Old San Juan all within walking distance from the apartment, which will give many hours of relaxation and entertainment.

Cristo street, the mecca of outlets and fashion stores is five blocks away and the famous jeweleries of San Juan await you in Fortaleza Street.

If you are a cigar smoker you will be four and a half blocks away from the best cigar lounge in the carribbean and possibly the east coast.

Old San Juan has a sun deck with a Jacuzzi in the Seafearers facilities that is just four blocks away.

A beautiful secluded (almost secret) beach is 10 walking minutes away. Don't believe those that tell you Old San Juan does not have a beach, they just do not know. If you want a full blue flag beach Escambron is a 10 minute taxi cab ride away.

Great Location in Old San Juan

  • 4 of 5

Our family of five had a great stay. The apartment was clean and safe, and we fit easily into the space: one bedroom for the parents, one for the three kids. The kitchen was convenient for a few meals in. The air-conditioned space was a nice respite from hot days walking around the old city.

Good location

  • 4 of 5

As many other reviewers mentioned the location of this unit is terrific, close to many restaurants, coffee shops, the fort/castle, and other attractions in Old San Juan. The unit itself was clean and spacious, and the host was very gracious and helpful. Taking off one star for two areas of improvement - (1) the shower only featured two temperatures, boiling hot and cold, with nothing in between (time for a new temperature regulator valve perhaps); and (2) the bunkbeds in the second room have no ladder, which is a safety concern, especially for smaller children. Overall a nice stay and would come back again.

Fantastic location and rental

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this rental within beautiful Old San Juan. The accommodations well suited the needs of all and was perfectly located near bars and restaurants. We were able to walk to nearby attractions and a rental car wasn't necessary. We would stay here again.
