Old San Juan Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 3

Completely renovated in 2012. 1 bedroom/1bathroom apartment. Spacious, quiet, comfortable and safe. Pleasant cross breeze due to layout. Spectacular view of the San Juan harbor with El Yunque in the background.

Located at La Puntilla, it is just steps away from the 'Paseo de La Princesa' promenade, the Governor's mansion and all other monuments and historical points of interest in the old city. The apartment is within walking distance of all restaurants, bars, boutiques, grocery stores, etc. in Old San Juan.

Situated on the same street as the Coast Guard, the apartment complex is constantly monitored by local and federal police. The apartment building is right in front of el Museo del Arsenal (see pictures).

Conveniently located near the bus terminal, a secure parking lot, and a ferry that will take you across the San Juan bay to Cataño where you can visit the Bacardi Rum Factory.

Please note, the apartment has two balconies.

The futon couch folds out into a twin sized bed and can comfortably sleep one person of small to medium build (no taller than 5'5').

THE APARTMENT IS ON THE FOURTH FLOOR. THERE IS NO ELEVATOR.

The time of my life

  • 5 of 5

Expectations sometimes fall short of reality but my stay at La Puntilla did not disappoint. The condo was as warm and inviting as the warm breezes off the ocean and Luis made me feel more than welcome upon my arrival. He offered advice on where to eat, have a coffee and explained the busing system which I used regularly. I called upon him once during my stay and he immediately addressed my concern, a request for additional bedding. Prior to my departure, Olivia was equally attentive to completing my travel and stay plans. The condo's location in Old San Juan is perfect, with access to many locations reachable by walking. And at all times I felt very secure.

Wonderful place!!

  • 5 of 5

We had never rented a condo before and decided to take a chance and try it. We are so glad we did and will do it again in a heart beat! Olivia, the owner, was so easy to work with and was a very good communicator. Her father, Luis, was very helpful and gave us a lot of good info on where to go and what to see. The apartment itself was perfect. It was exactly as described and we loved sitting on the balcony watching the cruise ships come and go. The location was perfect... Quiet at night but still within easy walking distance of everything in Old San Juan. We LOVED our stay here!

perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent three nights at this lovely condo this November, and couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations. A perfect location to walk anywhere in Old San Juan. We had a rental car and only used it once while we were there (there is a municipal parking lot next door) The view across the bay at night all lit up is just stunning. The apartment is a walkup located on the fourth floor, which the owner did inform us about. In fact we welcome the exercise, but if you have health issues then maybe this is not the place for you. Overall we gave the apartment a five star rating as it is exactly what was advertised, very clean, communications with Olivia and her father were excellent and was a terrific value. We visit Puerto Rico often and would stay here again.

Great Location in Old San Juan

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for one week in June. The apartment is on the fourth floor and there's a great view of the harbor. It's in a perfect location for getting around Old San Juan and we always felt very safe. We could walk to both forts and many restaurants. (There are many great ones nearby.) Apartment was clean and had a fully stocked kitchen. Olivia and Luis were very helpful and answered all of our questions. They were both great. Seeing as we were there in the summer it was very hot, but the air conditioner in the bedroom cooled off the room wonderfully at night. Our only complaint would be that we would have liked more than two towels to shower with. Because it was so hot out, we were both were taking two showers a day and even if we reused our towel from the morning, it still meant were were doing laundry once a day. Our favorite part of the apartment was sitting out each night on the balcony, watching the boats, and enjoying the nice breeze. This is an awesome apartment for anyone looking to see Old San Juan. Thank you Olivia and Luis for such a great stay!

Perfect Location! Great place to stay in OSJ

  • 5 of 5

It was hard for us to leave this fantastic apartment. Much cheaper than hotels in Old San Juan, with better amenities, space, and quite the view! Just a short walk to the downtown area, it strikes a perfect balance between location and affordability. The furniture and provided kitchen items were all in great condition and very well taken care of. The fact that this is a corner apartment affords multiple viewpoints from two different balconies. When traveling to OSJ, this is the place to stay!

p.s. for those worried about the stairs, there are only 48 from the ground to the door, and they are not that steep. The view is worth the climb!

Old San Juan has a very vibrant night life. There are a wide variety of restaurants and bars to choose from which stay open relatively late. Some streets in Old San Juan tend to be noisy because of this, but La Puntilla is located on a quiet, securely guarded dead-end street which allows for restful nights.

Other city beaches such as Condado Beach, Ocean Park and Isla Verde are about a 15 minute drive and are also accessible by bus.

Enjoy Puerto Rico's bounty of natural wonders all within driving distance of Old San Juan, such as El Yunque National Rain Forest where you will find many hiking trails and waterfalls; Puerto Rico's caves, Las Cuevas de Camuy, one of the largest cave systems in the world (tours are available); and much, much more.
