Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleep 4

Come and enjoy the 500 year old city while staying in a spectacular private room and bathroom with a personal patio, in a beautiful recently reconstructed house in Old San Juan.

Rediscover the wonders of the colonial city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, from a gorgeous house that will make you feel as a colonial aristocrat. With its four forts, two of the oldest churches in the western hemisphere, colorful architecture and many museums, boutiques and monuments, the old city will inspire and delight you. Experience it as a local, staying in an old colonial manor!

Indulge in the variety of local as well as international cuisine in the numerous restaurants and cafes nearby. Stay up late dancing some salsa in one of the many night spots in this city with is alive night life. All while staying in a very peaceful and exclusive residential street.

This listing is for the booking of two available private rooms on the 2nd floor of this house, and NOT the entire house. There is a private bathroom in between both rooms, connecting them. The first room has a desk, closet, queen sized bed, and private patio. The private patio has several 8 foot fruit trees and ferns and is a pleasure to have a drink or smoke at any time. The second room (the one without the private patio), has a full sized bed, television, closet and two desks. The second room may only be used to sleep in if there is a reservation for more than 2 people. Just to make it clear, if you make a reservation with this listing, you are essentially booking both rooms, since they share a bathroom. For example, if you book this listing for two people, the other room will remain empty. If you're interested in using both rooms, where each person has their own room, please let me know and it will be an additional 30 dollars a night. Furthermore the current price only reflect a reservation for two people, each additional person after two people will cost 30 dollars per night. The rooms are very private and detached from other living spaces, therefore making noise is not a problem.

This property is one of the few remaining complete colonial houses In Old San Juan. The house was completely renovated to its former glory a little over 10 years ago. The house is about 4000 square feet and has 4 separate interior patios with lush vegetation. Guests can use the living and dinning rooms, as well as all the patios and kitchen. There are 16 foot ceilings with ceiling fans and air conditioners in every room on the first floor. There is limited use of the kitchen. You can use the refrigerator, microwave, plates, cups, and toaster, but no cooking. My mother and I live in the house with two cute dogs. There are also cats that live in Miriams room and her personal patio. Although they dont roam the house, it still triggered one of our former guests cat allergies, so be aware. There is no curfew in the house and you may return at any time after a night out.

Such great hosts and lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Richard and Miriam were a wealth of knowledge and shared many things with us about old San Juan and it's recovery from hurricane Maria. They did their best to accommodate us in a difficult time with water and intermittent power.

It was a great experience and we would book with them again in the future.

Enviable property

  • 3 of 5

Wonderful house and fantastic beds. Odd to stay with the owner in their boyhood room. You do not have access to the family kitchen or other opportunities to eat inside so you might as well stay in a hotel.
