About The Owner

I am from Puerto Rico and live in Old San Juan. I spent most of my time between my house in Old San Juan and the countryside which allow me to always be in beautiful natural surroundings. I am fortunate to live in this unique place within its history, colonial architecture and best of all great community. Love to share it with you!

What makes this house unique

This house is very unique as you will be able to enjoy all the colonial architecture elements of a late 1700 hundred home built by the spaniards. High ceilings with Ausubo beams, checkered floor, open kitchen with two beautiful archways to the courtyard, interior courtyard, soles truncos, and even an underground cistern underneath the patio used to collect rain water.

Lovely colonial get away

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place! Pictures are accurate, the place is quaint, cozy and has lots of charm and character, yet very spacious for a party of 4. I particularly enjoyed the fact that there is no TV.Close to grocery stores, restaurants and shops. Located on a quiet street, Haydee was a great host, came to meet us as soon as we arrived and even checked on us the following day. Please read all of her recommendations and pointers which are found in her emails and a binder in the property’s. I highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to host Nelly and her family. They were very friendly, communicative and conscious about supporting the local economy. It is always nice to meet and have families like them stay at my house. Hope to see them in the future again!

Perfect, beautiful, spacious oasis

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our girls trip. We especially adored the courtyard. Haydeé is a wonderful host, and she's available with recommendations and to answer any questions you may have. The house's location is perfect for anyone wanting to stay in Old San Juan. You can easily walk anywhere in OSJ, and it's far away from the touristy areas near the cruise ports. We were a little worried about only having a fan in the second bedroom, but it was very pleasant at nights.

If you are sticking to the San Juan area, Uber is very cheap and reliable. If you plan on taking day trips outside the city (as we did to Fajardo, Luqillo, El Yunque, and Cueva del Indio), renting a car means you'll be searching awhile for street parking in OSJ unless you want to pay a pretty penny for a parking lot.

My friends and I cannot get over how much we loved this house. We hope to return very, very soon!

Vacationing in a work of art!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this colonial home. The home itself was a piece of art, but the owner also has tastefully decorated it with beautiful pieces that always keep you looking. Great location. No need for a car, but if you do have one there is a parking garage not far from the house. It was only about $4 or so to park overnight. Haydee texted us about an acrobat/magic show that she thought our kids might enjoy. They did. Everything in old San Juan is in walking distance from the home. It is just as beautiful as the pictures.
