“Imagine the City is your guesthouse…'

and while you are walking through one of the first cities in the colonial world you find your “space” to stay, the apartment of your choice, small and cozy or spacious and elegant, colorful with high ceilings or a window to the ocean, with a balcony to a plaza or a hidden patio. Imagine this wide variety available for you to dive into and feel the spirit of more than 500 years.

VidaUrbanaPR is a result of our love to Old San Juan and our desire to share this beauty with you. Therefore we enjoy representing our neighbors (homeowners) who have decided to offer their homes to travelers. We are managing an incredible variety of properties, all very different from each other and yet in the same gorgeous old city, Some Truly Economic and as well Some of the Finest Locations in Old San Juan.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was the most amazing experience. I'm from New York and travel frequently to Puerto Rico. I brought 6 family members and they were more than content. This rental has it all, chairs in bags, hammocks and toys for kids. Very clean and the patios are private. Nuyorican cafe, The parrot club, Las Palmas are so close and have great service and atmosphere that welcomes all. Castle of San Cristobal and El Morro are literally blocks away. Irma was a sweetheart and very helpful and if anything was needed she was readily available. Overall I give it 5 out of 5 stars. I plan to come here every year, yea that's how good it was. Thank you guys for this amazing experience and god bless!!!

Terrific location

  • 4 of 5

The location of the ground floor apartment was great. We were just steps from restaurants and bars with an authentic local feel. Don't miss a roof top breakfast at La Terraza boutique hotel just down the street. Everything was clean, the kitchen had plenty of cups, glasses, plates and silverware. I would have wished for a larger coffee pot than the tiny one provided but we made do. Having the washer/dryer was also convenient. DO NOT RENT A CAR for your stay as our travel companions insisted on doing. It remained in the parking garage all but 3 days of our 7 day stay. The OSJ is a walking city. We felt safe at all times. The weather was so nice we walked to Condado one day. Easy check-in and check-out. Having the second bathroom was a great find in the area.

Great.

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay it is perfect and it's right in Old San Juan. The condo looks exacly like in the pictures and theres enough room. The only two things I would suggest is to have another TV in one of the other rooms because we had down time and we all had to share the TV in the living room which wasn't a big deal but it would have been nice to have a second TV. The other thing thats not a big deal but would have been great to have would have been a big umbrella for the Beach to help give us shade. Again not a big deal if those things arent provided. Just a suggestion;). For Old San Juan you actually don't really need a car. You could ride the bus for $0.75 it's right in Old San Juan, the trolley gives free rides around Old San Juan or get a taxi $$$ but if you want to go somewhere far like Rincon etc I would suggest to rent a car. We rented a car for 2 days and it was great and worth it. We explored the island as much as we could and it was beautiful. There is so many restaurants in Old San Juan and they are great. People around there a very sweet, helpful and it was very safe. We had no problems. We even bought some groceries and cooked at the condo helps to save $$$. I definitely plan to book with you guys again thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. We really appreciated it and thank you for being so helpful. The binder with all the information of all time one was very helpful thank you once again.

best decision

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely house! We were totally mesmerized by this little gem embedded in the old city of San Juan. So comfortable and cozy with all we need (the king bed is incredible, reminding me of my grandma's bed from my childhood). Plus it is so conveniently located. You can walk to any restaurants within 10 minutes. I am so happy that we decided to stay in old San Juan and take time to soak in the 500 year of culture, history and charm. Recommended to all my friends. Thank you for keeping it so nice.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

The apartment overall was exactly what we needed. It offered enough space to sleep relax and enjoy ourselves (5 people). The photographs and Painting were a welcoming touch. It was clean convenient and homey. Wanda was friendly and helpful and I would recommend her to any traveler.
