Great little apartment

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay in La Puntilla. Super close to Old Town and easy walking downhill back to the apartment after a day exploring the forts. The waterfront less than a block away was hopping on the Saturday night we were there.

The main room is not air conditioned, but don't let this scare you away. It is a corner unit and the amount of airflow is more than adequate to cool you off on an August afternoon.

The owner was super helpful in getting us keys as we did not know exactly what time we would arrive. Many thanks for that!

We are returning in October and plan on renting this unit again.

Awesome Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful condominium in the perfect location with the perfect breeze and view of the port. Luis the owner, helped us with our bags and sat down and chatted with us for a few minutes to let us know the best spot for beaches, restaurants and sightseeing. Very warm and lovely person. They had everything we needed.... towels, shampoo, beach towels, laundry room and it looked exactly like the pictures. We walked to the local grocery store and bought groceries to make our breakfast and dinners ...it saved us a ton of money, as food in the center of town can be rather pricey. The location is perfect, close enough to get everywhere walkIng yet far enough to not hear all the fun going on in the center of town. Since we were staying 13 nights they had a cleaning lady come in and clean everything and give us fresh sheets, etc. We actually booked our next vacation, a cruise, because we watched all the cruises coming in and out of the port! I highly recommend this condo...don't let the stairs detour you (unless you have bad knees or are handicapped ) our 4 year old ran up them no problem. We will be back!!

Great trip

  • 4 of 5

The city as a whole is a great place to visit. Although we experienced a small bug issue, the overall experience and customer service was up to par. The landlord was prompt and attentive to our needs and we appreciated their genuine hospitality.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our apartment for your stay in Old San Juan and for being such great guests. Unfortunately, the summer months in the tropics can bring out more ants. We apologize for the inconvenience. An exterminator came to the apartment the day you checked out and the issue has been resolved.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in Old San Juan for a couple of nights before going to Vieques. We wanted to be able to explore the Old San Juan area, but were unsure of the best location. This apartment was perfect. Olivia was quick to respond to our request and was very helpful with information. Luis was waiting for us upon arrival. He showed us around, answered questions and gave us a lot of useful information about Old San Juan as well as Vieques.

The apartment was very secure and in a quiet area. The two balconies and doors provided a constant breeze with beautiful views. The bedroom air conditioner kept the bedroom very cool. There was also a futon which provided an extra sleeping space. The apartment was well equipped with everything we needed. It was very close to shopping, sightseeing and restaurants. We enjoyed our stay and I would highly recommend this apartment to others.

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.
