Guestbook comments from the manager
Our stay in Old San Juan was wonderful. The booking through Hope Away could not have been easier. Vida Urbana followed up promptly with a contract once we established our dates. It's a long, legal statement with some funny statements thrown in, so you should read it through for the information particular to the property and living in San Juan. Vida Urbana requires an initial deposit to hold the reservation, and this was promptly refunded before we even left the airport! (I checked my email on my phone.) Half the rental cost is the next thing you will need to send to Vida Urbana, and we did this through PayPal, which was the easiest for us. The remaining half is due one month before you get there, but don't worry, this is a good company staffed by reliable people! There was not much correspondence before our arrival, except to ask for payment, but the day before our trip, Irma from the office texted me with details about what to do when we arrived at the airport and included her phone number. Once at the airport in San Juan, you are advised to take a taxi to the property, which we did easily. Taxi rates are government-controlled, so all rates are set ahead of your trip. The ride to the apartment was $23 plus tip. Many taxis are huge vans for some reason and driving down some of the the very narrow and cobblestone streets of OSJ is a real exciting experience! Calling Irma once we landed was easy. US cell phones require no extra payments or cards or settings, at least on Verizon, so make your calls as if you were Stateside. Irma met us on the street in front of the apartment when we arrived. The apartment is a lovely, well-appointed "traditional" home, owned by gregarious American, Jennifer, who lives down the hall. (There are only two apartments on this third and top floor of the building.) The apartment is decorated with many personal pieces of art. Few provisions are provided (no soap in the bathroom or laundry detergent) but a supermarket is only a few blocks away. This location is central to all of OSJ, our stay was peaceful and relaxing. Fans keep rooms cool, and AC in the bedrooms are there if needed.
