San Cristóbal Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Br/ 2 Ba, A/C, WiFi, Cable TV, Sleeps 4

This conveniently located apartment feels like a hidden Jewel on the famous Ocean Walk of Old San Juan. If you come to visit the old city you will find many strolling along the Atlantic from one Fort (San Cristobal) to another (El Morro). The tranquil get-away is right by the Ocean and City Wall, yet lays quietly around a private, interior Patio with it's very own fountain to make your stay even more enjoyable. The 2 bedrooms open up to the sitting area at the outdoor Patio and have each their own full bathroom. The kitchen and dining area are comfortable to prepare and enjoy meals with up to 4 persons. The property is air-conditioned throughout, plus offers Cable TV and Internet. Not only is the apartment located by the water, but also close to many attractions such as: Historic sites, Tropical Plazas with Restaurants and Cafes, a tiny convenient store on the next block plus a Supermarket, Pharmacy and Marshalls just a few blocks walking distance away. There is on street parking available plus several parking buildings inside the old city wall. To learn more about the community click on "Old San Juan" on the red square and open the first listing called "Old San Juan Stills". Important Notes: Because of very old, strong & thick walls the WiFi signal is strongest in the master bedroom and reaches out to the Patio. Other areas might not get signal. The building code does not allow pets and the owner prefers to rent exclusively to adults at the age of 21 or older. Teenager may stay accompanied by their parents. This is a non smoking property even on outdoor areas! Smoking is only allowed outside of the entire building.

Andres and Annett - we are the property managers for this rental.

“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.

VidaUrbana 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. We live in Old San Juan ourselves and like to welcome you to experience our Latin-, Tropical-, Spanish-colonial style neighborhood.

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and had a fantastic time. It looks exactly as pictures. Great location overlooking the ocean by the city wall. You can catch a trolley right outside the front door or take a short walk to the bus station and ride the bus to the beach. Bus 21 and 53 are the ones to take. Kitchen is fully stocked with anything that you will need. I loved the grocery cart that I used numerous times when going to the market.

Awesome Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Tropical Patio rental unit from November 17-November 23, 2015 and have nothing but good things to say about the unit and the experience with Vida Urbana! Prior to our arrival, and also during our stay, Vida Urbana responded promptly to our questions. The day we arrived, our plane was delayed several hours, so we did not arrive until about 11 pm. Javier was there to meet us, get us settled, and direct us to a very reasonably priced parking ramp. The unit was clean, comfortable, and exactly as described by the photographs. Although we did not use the kitchen (other than the refrigerator) all the appliances appeared to be new. Each bedroom and the kitchen/dining area had it’s own air-conditioning unit. The patio was a great place to relax, especially with the ocean breeze coming through the (securely locked) open grated door. The location of this unit in Old San Juan was awesome! As two 67-year-old women, we walked all over Old San Juan (even late at night) and never once feared for our safety. Vida Urbana refunded our deposit the day we checked out. I highly recommend this rental property and would choose it again if I ever return to Old San Juan. I can’t imagine why anyone would go to a chain hotel when they can have an experience like this!

Old San Juan is the oldest city on US Territory and part of the World Heritage. It is about 8 by 8 blocks of unique colonial style architecture and offers everything from restaurants, bars, Puerto Rican coffee shops, galleries, open air music, and nice paths to walk by the Port & Ocean, tourist shops, Marshalls, grocery store to a drug store with pharmacy. The closest unofficial beach is in front of the Capitol Building in about 10-15 walking minutes from almost anywhere in Old San Juan. The nearest blue flag beach is called El Escambron and can reached in about 25-30 minutes walking along the Atlantic Ocean or in about 5 minutes by car/ taxi or bus. Old San Juan has a bus station from where you can go to Plaza Las Americas, the biggest mall in the Caribbean, to the Convention Center, as well as to Condado and Isla Verde, the other two main tourist spots along the coast of San Juan. Condado and Isla Verde are the modern parts of the city and have great beaches, hotels & casinos & much more... Learn more about Parking in Old San Juan: Old San Juan provides free of charge on street parking, which is usually hard to find. It is more likely to find a spot between 6 am and 8 am and between 4 pm and 7 pm. During business hours and later at night it might take a while to find a spot and it can turn out to be challenging at times. All of our apartments are within walking distance of parking buildings and/or lots, providing overnight rates or hour rates for the additional hours. The most economic parking rental is a public lot by Paseo de la Princesa at the southwest city wall of Old San Juan. There are several parking buildings all over town: “Ballaja” on the northwest section of Old San Juan right by El Morro, “La Cochera” in the center of town on Calle Luna between Cruz and San Justo Street , “Dona Fela” in the south center on Recinto Sur and the most economic parking building “Covadonga” right on top of the public bus station as well on Recinto Sur, one block east of the Old San Juan Sheraton Hotel.
