Overview

La Puntilla Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2, Balcony with View of San Juan Harbour

1 bedroom/1bathroom apartment in excellent condition. Spacious, quiet, comfortable and safe. Pleasant cross breeze due to layout. The apartment has a balcony with a spectacular view of the San Juan harbor with El Yunque in the background.

THE BED WAS UPDATED TO A QUEEN SIZE FRAME AND MATTRESS IN AUGUST 2015.

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.

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

Just perfect for our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Well-maintained and comfortable condo in a very handy location in Old San Juan. Everything in walking distance. Very secure, clean, well-equipped, and modern.

Luis met us with a smile, and generously offered advice on restaurants, sites, parking, and attractions.

A great introduction to Old San Juan. Highly Recommended.

Perfect location for exploring Old Town San Juan!

  • 5 of 5

Olivia's apartment was perfect for our short trip to San Juan. It's removed enough from the main area of Old Town San Juan to not be too noisy, but it's still close enough to easily explore the entire area. Olivia made the booking easy and Luis and Mara were very helpful (and so friendly!) when we arrived. We got to watch the cruise ships take off while we sipped cool beers in the evening. We would absolutely stay here again and will recommend it to everyone we know planning a trip to San Juan. Thanks so much, Olivia, Luis, and Mara!

Old San Juan Apartment with Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 4 wonderful nights in Olivia's apartment. Scheduling our stay with Olivia could not have been more pleasant - she always promptly responded to emails, provided detailed instruction to ease our arrival, and even allowed us to change our travel dates (without any sort of hassle) when we had a sudden change of plans. The apartment itself was perfect - clean, quiet, with a comfortable bed and functional kitchen and bathroom. It was a close walk to all the bars, shops and restaurants of Old San Juan, without the noise. The balcony provided beautiful views of the harbor - and a constant breeze that kept the apartment feeling cool and airy. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a convenient, quiet, relaxing stay in San Juan.

Great Location Great Deal!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the condo before we went on a cruise! Olivia and Luis were a pleasure to work with and answered every question I had dealing with the apartment and Old San Juan! The condo couldn't have been in a better location the day we left for the cruise we packed our bags and wheeled our suit cases down the street to the ship literally took 5 minutes! I would recommend this place to anyone unless you have a problem climbing stairs since its on the 4th floor and has no elevator!

Excellent Condo & Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here prior to our cruise. The condo is in an excellent location. Olivia was very prompt in corresponding with us all of the details and Christian was there to meet us when we arrived from the airport. We loved the balcony and the view, we walked everywhere in Old San Juan. The condo was clean, comfy, and very accommodating. If you want to stay in Old San Juan and get a feel of the culture...This is your place! We will definitely stay here when we go back! Thanks Olivia!!!

Wonderful location with beautiful harbor breezes!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at La Puntilla for 3 nights in Old San Juan. The apartment was exactly as described and had everthing we needed. It's location was perfect for doing walking tours of the city, sightseeing and grabbing food at all of the eateries around town. Being near the coast guard station and in a gated community complex made us feel really safe. Being on the 4th floor gave us wonderful cross breezes so we never needed AC - but the bedroom did have it if it were needed. The harbor views from all of the windows and balcony were amazing and we really enjoyed relaxing outside. Olivia was a pleasure to deal with and her prompt, curteous, and thorugh communication was a real treat. Highly recommmend staying here!

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.
