Please read carefully our full listing since we have tried to incorporate all possible FAQ´s. Our online Calendar is always up-to-date! (Just in case, we have been marking our Calendar as 'full' for most of 2014 and onward since we are currently mostly living in the property, but feel free to inquire for any available dates.)

Why Ramon chose Old San Juan

We´ve owned this property since 1996, having done a full restoration, which is different than a remodeling. This apartment was closed off in a semi-abandoned state for 10 years before we bought it.

The location of this two bedroom , apartment together with the owners helpful and attentive help and suggestions made our stay successful and comfortable. I particularly enjoyed looking down from the balcony early mornings and watching the city wake up.

I recommend this apartment where location and comfort are needed.

Owner's Response: This was actually our first vacation rental ever, back in 2009. Even though only a 4-star review was received, which is still very good, it served as enough motivation to make some upgrades to the property for the utmost comfort of our guests. This historic apartment is aimed mainly at those guests that truly enjoy and seek an authentic, original and artistic ambiance in a restored setting. It is worth noting that after this review, these same guests have stayed with us at least twice more.

Beyond Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this historic apartment in Old San Juan for an extended period of approximately 6 weeks. It was simply amazing!! My wife and son still rave about it to their friends. The location is truly unique being one of just a few residences in the central square of OSJ. Being on the 5th floor, I had constant views of street performers, locals mingling, gorgeous sunsets, etc. The apartment has so much old world charm that it felt like something out of a movie. The landlord, Ramon, was so nice and attentive, checking in to make sure everything was just perfect. We will definitely be back!!!

Best place to stay and tour Old San Juan

  • 5 of 5

Terrific. No place could be more convenient to see Old San Juan. Ramon recommended great places to eat. The accommodations suited to a T our family of 3. We loved beaches castles & forest and our balcony view of theater dance and mime. Great vacation -- Dick S

Charming and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay here has only confirmed our fondness for this apartment. In fact, we have already booked our stay for next year. We feel that the goal of our most cordial host is to share something about Puerto Rican culture. The apartment is located in a building situated close to essential services: a Walgreens, a department, a book and a grocery store. There are numerous restaurants and walks along the water, charming streets. museums and shops. There are renovation projects ongoing in the building and late concerts on the Plaza.

Lovely home right in the heart of Old San Juan

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the perfect place to rent right in the heart of Old San Juan, you just found it. Comfort, location, beauty and attention to detail are what this unit is all about. This place has everything; It’s spotlessly clean, spacious, well appointed and in a great location. The view is fabulous and my balcony time became ritual. The apartment has all of the amenities of home at a price that beats most of the hotels which don’t offer half of what you will enjoy here. Fast wi-fi, good a/C, comfy beds, land line, cable, charming decor, W/D, stereo, Bose sound system, turntable, DVD, CD library, copy/fax/printer, cedar lined closets with plenty of hangers, filtered water, and a fully stocked kitchen with everything from cookbooks to a bamboo steamer, etc. And what’s more, its all really cute and you are right in the Plaza de Armas! This was one of my best rental experiences ever because all of the thoughtful touches Ramon put into the apartment. He was great to work with and checked in with me from time to time to make sure that everything was alright . When I return to PR, I will stay here again. It really is a home away from home. P.S. If you are thinking about renting a car-don't, everything is short lovely walk away. If you are taking a tour outside of San Juan most companies will pick you up at Plaza Colon which is 4 blocks away. If you want to explore outside the city you can walk to the Sheraton Hotel and Casino and rent a car from there. Just try your best to avoid traveling during rush hours.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 wonderful weeks in Puerto Rico. The apartment was great and we felt like home. The air-conditioning in the bedroom was perfect, we could sleep excellent. The sleeping couch in the television room was also quite good. The kitchen is equipped perfectly. Once we had a problem with the water, Ramon helped us immediately. We also had the pleasure to meet him in person, he is a good person and does his job very profesional. Everything was organiced very well, he responded every email, gave us information about Puerto Rico and he even had good resaurant tips, too. After all it, was a great time and we would like to come back. By the way, the neighbours are also absolutely nice. Greetings to Coral, Victor. Thank you and greetings to Ramon

Old San Juan (or 'Viejo San Juan') is one of the oldest settlements in the Americas, it's origins dating back to the 16th century. It is located in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The district is characterized by numerous public plazas. OSJ is the main attraction in PR for both international and local tourism. The centuries-old El Morro Fort complex is just a few blocks away.

Location, Location, Location: The apartment is located steps away to markets, pharmacies, taxis, restaurants, museums, historic sites, government offices, hotels, cruise ships, nightlife, pubs, live theaters, ice cream parlors, jogging trails, tennis and basketball courts, etc. On the other hand, the El Convento Hotel, and the Casino, both of which are popular venues for weddings, are just a couple of blocks away. Watch from our balcony the free concerts or shows often offered in Plaza de Armas.

We are just 3 blocks away from the cruise ship ports. A public bus terminal is nearby. There are several public parking garages around. HOWEVER, please note that OSJ is best enjoyed on foot, no car is needed and certainly not recommended since traffic could be very slow through the narrow streets, particularly during the day and throughout the Christmas season. Also, there is a free trolley within OSJ.
