Old San Juan Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom - House Size!

This is without exaggeration one of the most beautiful apartments in Old San Juan. It is a large charming Spanish Villa with high ceilings, large historic arches, roman statues, flowing vines, warm Caribbean colors, brick oven cooking area, open air swimming pool and poolside patio, and three charming bedrooms for your exclusive use. One of a handful of properties in Old San Juan that has a swimming pool.

In 1999 the film 'Undercurrent' was filmed there starring Lorenzo Lamas, Frank Vincent (from Goodfellas, Casino & Raging Bull), and Brenda Strong (Seinfeld, Desparate Housewives). Property has three bedrooms (each with queen bed).

In 2012 SONY Corporation selected this house as one of 4 homes in Puerto Rico to film video footage for their new ad campaign for a new High Definition TV product line, 4K. We were honored by their selection and look forward to seeing our villa in their tv ads.

If you wish to have a taste of the Spanish settlement around 1800's, you must consider to rent our villa. We have brought out the essence of the past and transformed to the today's needs. The villa is tastefully decorated with a Mediterranean style.

It has a swimming pool in the open air courtyard. The layout is unique based on the time was built. A large spiral staircase overtop the water brings you to the second floor. You certainly will fall in love with it and must dream every day back home of planning to stay with us again. First floor has living room area, one bedroom, kitchen and swimming pool and a large bathroom with open air shower in black pebble stones. Second floor has 2 bedrooms and a very comfortable bathroom with 2 sinks and bidet (2 doors access).

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The property was absolutely gorgeous - every detail was perfect. We had a stray cat that lived out front on the street who would greet us most mornings :) The pictures for this place don't do it proper justice. It's the perfect getaway, perfect location, and Otto was incredibly helpful and attentive. Very highly recommended!

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Loved the villa. Perfect location for everything in old San Juan. Very unique property with the area over the swimming pool completely open. It was wonderful just to look up and see stars! Otto gave us some great information about restaurants and was quick to respond to our questions. Had plenty of room for all 6 of us. Didn't quite get finished with everything we wanted to do in San Juan so we can't wait to go back!!!

We could not have been more please with our stay behind the "red doors". The apartment is very convenient to everything the Old City has to offer, yet, it is on a quiet street. The apartment itself is a "one of a kind" and was the perfect setting for our Puerto Rican Christmas dinner. I can not say enough about Otto, as a host for our stay. He helped with everything from food suggestions to finding us additional accommodation for some of our family members. I would not hesitate to rent any of Otto's properties in the future. A worry free vacation!

Beautiful apartment and great service by owner!

  • 5 of 5

3 couples stayed here as we visited PR for a wedding. Otto (owner) was very helpful and very available for any problems (our AC did not work the first night) Otto was at the apartment at midnight (!) making sure we would be comfortable.

Great location - with construction traffic is terrible and parking is a little difficult but you can arrange long term parking within a block at La Cochera (@$20-25/day)

We loved it and will recommend it to friends! Thanks Otto!

Property Review

(+) All I have to say is that the pictures for the property on homeaway does not do justice. This place is SUPER nice, heck for 5 nights, my buds and I felt like multi millionaires during our vacation trip. I personally felt in love with the architecture of the house, where all the rooms were unique had their own personality and had AC. The kitchen & dinning room was open to the air AND there is a pool right next to the dinning room. The property is central to EVERYTHING in old San Juan, you literally dont have to drive.

I had a couple of issues during my stay BUT the owner responded every time and took care of the issue. Great costumer service.

(-) The were 3 negatives: 1. that the apartment/house shares walls with neighbors and sound REALLY carries so you have to mindful when playing music by the pool and 2. I was under the impression I rented the entire house/building and to my surprise there were people in the initial entrance of the building thinking maybe they were thieves. We had left the second door unlocked because we thought we were the only ones. I contacted the owner and informed me that he recently began renting the very first apartment. After that we locked all the doors. 3. Although we found parking, be prepared to spend some time finding parking and hauling your stuff from the car to the apartment. Being that is not a modern city, the parking situation is understandable. There is a parking garage about 5+ block away that is very affordable per day its called Dona Fella parking (GPS: 18.464016, -66.113461), just be prepared to walk. review

(-) Beware that homeaway does NOT let you leave a review unless you physically stayed at a property. I got burned by a owner (NOT THIS PROPERTY OWNER) after paying the entire amount, and then told me he is selling the place and did not refund me the entire amount I paid and would not answer my emails. I tried leaving a review and homeaway denied my review because I did not stay in the place. Shame on them.

Great Old San Juan apartment

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this Old San Juan apartment! The location is close to attractions, restaurants, and shops. It is well stocked and plenty of towels were provided. The apartment is spacious and very comfortable. It is beautifully decorated and provides a wonderful indoor outdoor experience .The swimming pool in the courtyard is refreshing and so beautiful in the evening. Air conditioning in the bedrooms was a nice option. Internet is fast. We hope to stay again during a future visit!
