Guestbook comments from the manager

Our recent stay in San Juan was nothing short of amazing. However, a big part of that “amazing” started with the condo we rented. All of the accommodations were extremely nice in the condo and very well thought out. I know the owners worked very hard to make sure all the details, such as a/c, towels, kitchen and accessories, etc. were all available to us. The owners, along with Irma, were extremely welcoming too. If we ever plan another trip to Old San Juan and this condo is available, we would definitely rent again. Thanks for everything.

Worth it to stay in Old San Juan

  • 4 of 5

This property is on the ground floor in a very clean apartment. I am very glad there was air conditioner and access to wash & dry. I liked that it is on the corner of a very accessible street. 2 blocks from the Plaza Colon, bus terminal, castles, food... Do not go to El Jibarito - go to Manolin! Google it. Authentic local food, good price! There was a lot of construction when we went which means future improvement! No mosquitos!!

Rustic Charm in Old San Juan

  • 5 of 5

The property was what we were looking for. It was our first time to Puerto Rico and we wanted to stay in Old San Juan. We enjoyed being able to walk around the town and take in the ambiance of the community. The apartment was what we wanted to be able to cut our food cost and was a very comfortable place to stay. It was a great place for us to use as a base as we explored Puerto Rico.

This was a perfect place to stay for OSJ!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this location! The apartment was air conditioned and comfortable. The bed was good and the kitchen was fully equipped. You can walk one block and be looking at the ocean and amazing views. The owner and manager were very helpful and friendly. Within 1-2 blocks you are into shops and restaurants. This apartment is only a couple of blocks from one of the forts and a little further and you are at the second fort. Great stay!

5 days in Old San Juan!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for two couples to have as a resting place on a 5 day vacation to San Juan! We were able to travel around to Condado and Ocean Park very easily using bus transportation or taxi. Everything in Old San Juan is within walking distance to each other and this location is a block away from a beautiful view of the ocean at an historic site that you can tour. It helps that it's near a school, so finding your way back is easier with a landmark since we weren't familiar with the island! I would recommend staying here if you want the whole Old San Juan package!

Owner's Response: Lindsey I am so happy you have enjoyed your stay and that the school next to the apt. was not a problem for your group. Thanks for staying with us and I hope we could have you back again sometime soon. Saludos, Irma.

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location, walking distance to everything in old town. We had to rent a car the first night and Irma was so great, she got in the vehicle and drove with us to get the closest parking... So helpful and great communication.

The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. The master bedroom was quiet at night and had a great air-conditioner.

Only complaint, the shower handle needs to be fixed, hard to regulate that lovely hot water.

We would definitely return.

The apartment was very clean and charming.

I enjoyed my stay very much; the area was very safe and the people were friendly. Loved my stay. The walks around Old San Juan was like taking a tour back in time. The foods, the smells, and the buildings made it worth the stay.
