My 3 teenaged boys and I stayed here in August, and LOVED IT!! The home is so beautiful, the tile floor reminds me of Gaudi Home ( museum ) in Barcelona Spain. I travel a lot since I'm a Flight Attendant and this has been one of my favorite places. We had a car the entire time and got lucky with parking right in front over night. You will have to find parking during the day elsewhere, since the parking in front is reserved for the Cathedrael Government workers from 8am -7pm. Also, you need A/C in San Juan and this places had it, we were very comfortable. Thank you Lourdes for helping us check in and out, she could not be nicer.

Beautiful Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This place was not what I was expecting, especially in the middle of Old San Juan. This rental was much better than expected. Very spacious, comfortable for my family of 6. We loved the balcony overlooking the Cathedral. Loved that we were walking distance to EVERYTHING. Javier was awesome, he was very helpful, explained everything we needed to know. He told us the best places to go, and where to park. Thank you for everything!

Thank you Vida Urbana!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was the perfect fit for our family of 6. Beautiful place (love the tile floors) very spacious and clean, with a well-equipped kitchen in which we cooked many meals. Also the washer & dryer was a huge bonus! Everything was in good working order and it was so comfortable being there after a long day in wonderful Old San Juan. We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony overlooking the Cathedral ~ very relaxing! The whole experience was great. Thank you again to your assistant Javier. He met us promptly when we arrived, showed us around the apartment and was very helpful in explaining where to find places nearby such as the grocery store, the pharmacy and different points of interest. Javier was very pleasant & welcoming. All in all, we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this rental!! Thanks again Vida Urbana for your hospitality.

Live Like a Local in Old San Juan

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and beautiful with artistic tile floors throughout. Hot water, air conditioning, washer/dryer were all in great working order. The location in the heart of Old San Juan was perfect for sightseeing and enjoying the restaurants, shops and plazas. We especially enjoyed sitting outside on the balcony, taking in the sights and sounds of this colorful city with a cup of coffee in hand. The apartment was very spacious for our family of four.

Irma, the manager, met us at the apartment waiting patiently when our flight was delayed. She told us all about the apartment and directed us to the grocery store. She also met us at check-out and arranged for a taxi to the airport. Then, within 24 hours of departure, she returned our security deposit. We highly recommend this apartment and the Vida Urbana team.

Beautiful, spotless, and amazing location

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this apartment do not do it justice. It is beautiful, tile floors and high ceilings with a full kitchen, although with all of the amazing restaurants steps away, we did not do much cooking! The balcony overlooked a little park and was perfect for watching the world go by; we even saw a wedding at the church across the street.

This is the first time I've booked a vacation rental and is how I'll travel from now on. Vida Urbana made everything so easy! The spacious apartment was perfect for my family, I would have had to get three hotel rooms and this was so much nicer and made it affordable for a family vacation. We'll be back!

Clean and Comfortable in the Heart of Old San Juan

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for 5 nights over Thanksgiving and our time spent there was wonderful. The location is perfect for those looking to take in the sights and sounds (and late nights) of Old San Juan. It is only two blocks from a grocery store located in the Plaza de Armas which made cooking in the updated kitchen a morning and nightly routine for us. It is also close to all of the great night life that Calle San Sebastian has to offer. As for the house itself, the furniture and beds are comfortable and clean; in fact the entire space was clean and didn't have that "lived in" feeling I've had with other rentals. The master bedroom with master bath is a huge private space. The only thing I can that think of as a possible negative is that the wi-fi is located in the master bedroom and doesn't reach to the main entertaining area of the house. But, your in Old San Juan, so it is good to disconnect from the world a little bit! Sit on the balcony and enjoy the sights and sound of the city.

This was an absolute gem of a rental in Old San Juan. The property management team was easy to communicate with, easy to pay, and my damage deposit was returned within 48 hours. I would absolutely recommend this property to any family or small group heading to Old San Juan.
