About Yaritza Rodriguez

I'm a young professional, who works in marketing for a telecommunications company in Puerto Rico. I studied advertising and public relations because it excites me and I am very lucky to work in something related. I was born in Puerto Rico and have lived all my life in the metropolitan area. I love the idea that people from all over the world come visit. I live in love with my island and I will do my best so you can have an excellent experience.

Why Yaritza Rodriguez chose Old San Juan

This property is great because is in a great location , close to almost everything. You don't need to rent a car to be in Old San Juan. At the apartment is a list of the places I recommend going in, places known only to the locals.

What makes this apartment unique

Staying at the apartment is a unique experience. The condo has that colonial aspect that highlights the Spanish structures. Featuring a big internal patio that is not expected to see in Old San Juan considering the size. The apartment balcony overlooks the San Cristobal Castle built in the sixteenth century. You will get the chance to live like the locals.

Great location, clean, cute apt with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This is a GREAT location in Old San Juan. It is walking distance to everything. The apt is very clean and has everything you need. 6 of us stayed comfortably for 3 nights. The kitchen was tiny as other reviewers have mentioned, but why cook when there are so many great restaurants in Old San Juan!?! We did make use of the coffee pot each morning though, which was nice. Yaritza was able to arrange a taxi (her brother, Jesus) to pick us up at the airport, which was super convenient. Communication before, during and after our stay was awesome. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this apt. to a friend!

Perfect Old San Juan location

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is well located in Old San Juan. It is one block from the water. Do not bring a car here because there is truly nowhere to park. I don't think the parked cars on the streets ever move! We walked everywhere so the only issue was getting there from the airport and then getting back. Yaritza's brother is a cab driver so he picked us up which was great having that personal touch. We were in OSJ in July and it was very hot in the city where the buildings are close together. You can catch a breeze when you go up to the forts. The air conditioning in the bedrooms was nice and cold and mostly we slept with the bedroom fans on and the AC off. Unfortunately we were trying our best not to get bitten by mosquitos (Zika scare) so we couldn't enjoy the balcony doors or door slats open because there are no screens on them (not the style there, I guess). We ate all meals out - the apartment kitchen is the smallest kitchen I've ever seen - but we used the refrigerator for drinks.

The apartment was clean and well maintained and I would recommend it.

A restaurant that we really recommned is Punta de Vista (location is on the rooftop of the Hotel Milano on La Calle de la Fortaleza). The food was excellent and the price reasonable and the rooftop location was great). Definitely visit the forts.

perfect for family or small group of friends

  • 5 of 5

Stayed from june 21 to 28, 2016. Couple with two children, ages 7 and 10. Apartment had everything we needed wanted at half the cost of a hotel room. Excellent location. Two trolley stops within 1 minute. 2 minutes from plaza with taxis amd restaurants. 30 seconds from castillo san cristobal. Excellent apartment. Only thing missing was an ice cube tray for our drinks. Would highly recommend. Yaritza, the owner, was also very responsive to all my messages from before booking until we left. 5 stars.

Comfortable and great location.

  • 5 of 5

This was everything we hope for and more. We went back home for a volleyball tournament in which our 3 kids were participating and decided to fulfill a wish of all puertorricans, live in old San Juan. Condo is exactly as described, cleaned and well maintained. Owner and her mom made sure we had a good stay. Convenient location to all the city has to offer. I would recommend it to everyone and look forward to some day return.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed for three nights. The location is perfect. We could walk to everything we wanted to do in San Juan. Parking is hard to find there but the parking garage is only about 4 blocks away and it was less than $10 overnight. The apartment got pretty warm in late afternoon but the bedrooms cooled off quickly with AC in each room.

Convenient; comfortable; owner great to work with

  • 4 of 5

Yvonne and her brother were wonderful to work with. Yvonne responded promptly and helpfully to all communication, and her brother Jesus (who is a taxi driver and picked us up at the airport) gave lots of useful information regarding our visit to San Juan. The apartment is comfortable, clean and convenient to attractions and restaurants in Old San Juan, as well as to a taxi rank if you want to travel beyond Old San Juan. It was stocked with essentials for bath and laundry, and seemed to have a well-equipped kitchen (though we didn't cook.) Yvonne even put a number of bottles of water in the refrigerator to be there on our arrival.

It was nice to stay in an apartment complex with residents of San Juan, rather than at a tourist hotel. One thing visitors should note for any location in old San Juan (not just Yvonne's)--the shuttered windows (designed to let in a cross-breeze) let street noise and noise from neighbors in, so if you like quiet when you sleep, you should bring ear plugs. Again, this is not unique to this apartment.

We would definitely consider renting from Yvonne if we return to Old San Juan.
