Overview

La Puntilla Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 3

Completely renovated in 2012. 1 bedroom/1bathroom apartment. Spacious, quiet, comfortable and safe. Pleasant cross breeze due to layout. Spectacular view of the San Juan harbor with El Yunque in the background.

Located at La Puntilla, it is just steps away from the 'Paseo de La Princesa' promenade, the Governor's mansion and all other monuments and historical points of interest in the old city. The apartment is within walking distance of all restaurants, bars, boutiques, grocery stores, etc. in Old San Juan.

Situated on the same street as the Coast Guard, the apartment complex is constantly monitored by local and federal police. The apartment building is right in front of el Museo del Arsenal (see pictures).

Conveniently located near the bus terminal, a secure parking lot, and a ferry that will take you across the San Juan bay to Cataño where you can visit the Bacardi Rum Factory.

Please note, the apartment has two balconies.

The futon couch folds out into a full size bed.

THE APARTMENT IS ON THE FOURTH FLOOR. THERE IS NO ELEVATOR.

IMPRESSIVE and AMAZING view!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a nice place I selected to stay at! Staying here for a couple of days, made me want to get my own place here :) The apartment was comfortable, clean, and quiet. If I hadn't made sightseeing plans, I would have been happy to just stay in the apartment, watching everything that was going on right outside our windows. I cannot wait to return and stay at this location again! I highly recommend it; it's very close to anything and everything located in Old San Juan.

Beautiful views

Clean, attractive apartment in a great location. Near everything, but quiet. Comfortable bed and air conditioning in the bedroom worked great. Three balcony doors in the living area provide refreshing breezes and a fantastic view.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

It felt very comfortable. The property manager was extremely helpful and kind! Opening up the doors to the outside with the water and Old San Juan was amazing! It was very clean and met our expectations. My wife, I, and 1 year old had no problems feeling at home. We had no issues with booking, staying, or leaving. I would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful views, clean comfortable apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had an amazing stay at this apartment. We were able to explore Old San Juan by foot, while also staying away from the hustle and bustle of the busy small city. The view of the harbor was beautiful from the front balcony, perfect to wake up to with a cup of coffee. It was a perfect size for two with plenty of amenities.

There is not a TV which may be a problem for some people, we didn't mind it but it would have been nice to have on in the background while getting ready.

Olivia and Luis were extremely friendly and helpful. Olivia responded to my emails within hours and was very accommodating with my somewhat confusing itinerary. I was even able to let my friends check in for me, so they could drop off their bags and explore Old San Juan before I got there.

I would highly recommend this apartment for rent and I will definitely rent it again if I ever return to Old San Juan :)

Great Views, Great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were so pleased with this place. We couldn't have asked for a better location: You have the benefit of being on the quiet outskirts, yet within walking distance to all Old San Juan has to offer. If you're not up for the walk, a stop for the free trolley shuttle is right around the corner. The condo itself was very clean, comfortable, and relaxing with great views and all the amenities you would need including a washer and dryer. Olivia's father, Luis, and his assistant greeted us when we arrived and took the time to walk us through the condo and share some information about the surrounding area. Olivia was great as well; very responsive to messages and was quick to return our security deposit. We would have no qualms with staying here again the next time we're in Puerto Rico :)

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.
