The 3BR/2BA PH Apt. is a 'MUST SEE', not only for its gorgeous bay view terrace, but also for a fresh layout around a center patio which brings light and a nice tropical breeze to the entire apartment. The 3rd floor San Juan Vacation Rental offers 3 air conditioned bed rooms with 2 baths. Each room has a nice size closet and there are 2 queen beds plus 1 full size bed available for up to 6 persons. The owner as well just added a brand NEW full size futon (for 2 persons to sleep on) to the living room – so we can now welcome up to 8 persons at our tropical rental! The living area is beautifully designed with FREE WIFI and a movie down-streaming device available for your entertainment. The spacious kitchen is well equipped and connected to a comfortable dining area. There is a washer/ dryer available. The apartment stays fresh because of a functioning cross ventilation and ceiling fans in each room.

Old San Juan is the oldest city on US Territory and part of the World Heritage. It is about 8 by 8 blocks of unique colonial style architecture and offers everything from restaurants, bars, Puerto Rican coffee shops, galleries, open air music, nice paths to walk by the Port & Ocean, tourist shops to grocery store, pharmacy, Marshalls and Starbucks. The closest unofficial beach is in front of the Capitol Building in about 10-15 walking minutes from almost anywhere in Old San Juan. The nearest blue flag beach is called El Escambron and can reached in about 25-30 minutes walking along the Atlantic Ocean or in about 5 minutes by car/ taxi or bus. Old San Juan has a bus station from where you can go to Plaza Las Americas, the biggest mall in the Caribbean, to the Convention Center, as well as to Condado and Isla Verde, the other two main tourist spots along the coast of San Juan. Condado and Isla Verde are the modern parts of the city and have great beaches, hotels & casinos & much more...

Needs some TLC

  • 4 of 5
We came to Old San Jaun for my daughters "destination wedding" at El Convento".
I'll start with the negative (2 stars) so I can end with the positive. First impressions are important with this type of business and my first impression was not favorable. The furtuniture in the living room was stained and dirty and reminded me more of a boys college dorm room at best. I didn't feel comfortable sitting down on any of it. From there we found hair on the sheets and enough dust on the refridgerator that I could easily write in it. All this suggested a lack of real cleaning so I wasn't too sure about the rest of the place; kithen, bathrooms, dishes etc. Having expressed all this to Irma from the management company, she did everything she could to make it right, buying new sheets for the beds, throw covers for the couches, and cleaning supplies so I could clean before we settled in. (Up to 4 stars now). I spent the first couple of hours of my vacation cleaning the bathrooms, the kitchen and dusting the furniture and woodwork. There is a lack of detail in this place which could easily be fixed. Examples are; the kitchen is only half equipped (one dish towel, no good sharp knives, minimal dishes/glasses), one shower has no place to put your shampoo, soap, razor, or wash cloth other than on the shower floor (a shower caddy is all it would need), and the outside deck could use more furniture. I'd also get rid of all the big cardboard boxes out there because it looks like a recycling drop off place. On the positive side...which is why it keeps the 4 stars rating. The location of the apartment is perfect for Old San Jaun exploring. The structure of the apartment is beautiful, with the big doors opening to the street, some beautiful wood work, the inside atrium (although it's empty) and the back outside deck are big plus's , and the amount of inside space available is awesome. It just needs a decorating upgrade, fresh paint, and some attention to small details that make for a more enjoyable stay and this place would be what travelers expect. Once these things are addressed I could easily give it 5 stars, maybe 6 !

Owner's Response: Thank you for this feedback. The new pull out futon arrived shortly after your stay and we removed the stained couch that was abused by the previous tenants. No excuses here regarding the cleaning, but it has been handled via a checklist of items. We added furniture for the back patio with Ocean view. Glad you liked the building and the location. We look forward to your next stay as we are certain your pending 5 star maybe 6 would be confirmed :-)

To our future tenants:
Please note that we are very committed to our properties and services. We are sorry for anything which might have not been to the satisfaction of the tenant and would like to assure that all details mentioned have been taken care off.
We would as well like to mention that the same customer rented another of our listings at the same time, which she had found spotless upon arrival. We wish she would have taken the time to post a review on that one too.

Annett, We really enjoyed the apartment. It's nicely decorated and well equipped - even has books. And it does indeed have wonderful breezes right through. Vida Urbana was also great to do business with. We would recommend you to anyone wanting a carefree stay in Old San Juan. There are 2 restaurants we think you should add to your list: Cucina di Ivo and Toro Salao. Thanks, J & G
