one month in Old Juan

  • 3 of 5

First the location of the property is great. One block from viewing the bay. I'd go for my morning run along with the view of the ocean with the breeze from the trade winds. Its a 3/4 mile to the little beach and less than 2 miles to the big beach . The property is located on the far end of San Sebastian well away from the spring break partying on the other end. However, there are three bars around the corner. Mostly locals. Saturday night the music would go sometimes to two in the morning and it would be difficult to sleep. The apartment is equipped with great cookware which was a pleasure. The addition of a micro wave would make it complete. Also due to the outdoor shower I believe it attracts some mosquitoes. A little spray of repellent solved that. My only regret is the apartment did not have the following , internet service, windows or an outside sitting area. But I was staying a month. If I was staying for a week or two those items would not have been an issue. Over all I would say that the addition of micro wave and internet would have greatly improved my stay. Kim was great with communicating with items.

This is a great small apartment for a couple, or for more people if willing to sleep in living room. The host was nice and made sure all our questions were answered. The apartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Good for a taste of old San Juan

  • 4 of 5

Casa Eloise is a long, narrow apartment on the ground floor, close to the north side of old San Juan. The fort of San Cristobal is just a few minutes walk away. The neighborhood is mostly residential, but there are several restaurants around the corner - more on this later.

We enjoyed staying at the Casa and found it comfortable and well-furnished. The most unusual feature of the apartment is the outdoor shower at the back. The shower is directly adjacent to the bedroom. Although open to the air from above, the shower is still surrounded on three sides by the walls of the neighboring buildings. We liked using it, but it does require some agility to get in and out since there is a low wall to step over. There's another shower (much smaller) inside the apartment.

It's important to be aware that there is no solid wall between the bedroom and the shower, which means that the bedroom itself is also open to the outside. You will hear noise from the neighbors - sometimes voices, sometimes TV. The neighbors usually quiet down by about 11pm, but if you go to bed earlier, you should bring earplugs. There is also a fair amount of mechanical white noise in the bedroom, probably from someone else's AC unit.

On Saturday night during our stay, the restaurants around the corner were playing music quite loudly until about 10:30pm, and that was also very audible in the bedroom. Fortunately, there is another room towards the middle of the apartment with a futon couch that can be folded out into a bed. We used this for two nights and it was much quieter than the bedroom.
