Our beautiful, recently renovated home exudes the charm and magic of Old San Juan while providing luxury & comfort for guests. Walk by the limbe vendor on the first floor (quintessential Old San Juan!) up to the second floor and enter the apartment. The living room opens to a beautiful balcony overlooking La Rogativa with breathtaking views of the San Juan Bay. Comfortable pull-out sofa, TV, dining table and chairs, sideboard and artwork fill the main living space. The kitchen features stainless steel refrigerator and apron-front sink, custom-built pantry and cabinetry. Hallway leads from kitchen past a half-bath to the enormous master bedroom, with very comfortable queen bed, nightstands, dresser and love seat. Continue from the master bedroom past an office nook / study to the full bathroom with custom-tiled shower. The second bedroom rests in the back, furnished with a daybed ( two twin beds) and vanity. The many windows and an interior wall of frosted glass allow the entire apartment to be filled with the light of the Caribbean sun!
The breeze from the bay cools the house accented by the overhead fans in each room. There is air conditioning in the bedrooms.This spacious ( for Puerto Rico) 1200 foot apartment is in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Old San Juan. There is NO smoking in any areas of the apartment even the balconies.
This quiet upscale neighborhood is one of the safest in Puerto Rico. Directly across from the Governor's mansion there is 24 hour guards! We cannot allow any parties as this is a residentlal area.
Walk around the corner and you are facing the Cathedral, El Convento and a few steps take you to Plaza Del Armas, supermarkets and our favorite "the Poets Passage" where you can find unique souvenirs and have a cup of coffee/tea and relax.
For the shoppers there is Ralph Lauren, Coach, El Galpon (hats), Burberry and Guess! Fine jewelry can be found at E Barquet or Bared. Puerto Rico has a rich tradition in crafting hand-rolled cigars so try the Cigar House.
History filled sites such as El Morro, San Juan Cemetery, El Yunque is a world famous rainforest, La Fortaleza are a must.
Many beaches such as Carolina Beach are clean, safe and the caribbean water is warm and clear blue.
Fishing, water skiing, horseback riding, Jet skiing , snorkeling are all within a half hour ride.
