              Car: Not Necessary

              AquaLoft is an airy urban space with a casual and relaxed environment. We strive for a creative ambience by recycling, reusing, salvaging, or building from scratch. AquaLoft is also the exhibition space for our artistic work, such as photographs and wall sculptures. As such, it is an ongoing creative project in which our guests participate as well. We encourage you to get inspired here!

              Old San Juan is a charming colonial town surrounded by fortified walls. Cobblestone streets, historic sites, museums, and forts capture your imagination no matter your age. Old San Juan's many coffeeshops and restaurants are not to be missed. Many cultural events, activities and workshops for adults and children constantly take place within walking distance (plus many are free!). Beautiful beaches within walking distance as close as just outside the city walls across from the Senate Capitol Building and bit further west, El Escambron, a Blue Flag Beach. There are outdoor and indoor yoga facilities in the area.

              Other Activities: outdoor public basketball and tennis courts within fort grounds and with views of the San Juan Bay.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1987

              About the owner: Our family has owned this building for 27 years. We moved our professional offices to the second floor and opened a bar/restaurant on the ground floor.

              Why the Owner Chose San Juan:
              The building is family-run, so there is usually someone around who can assist you and answer questions.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              AquaLoft's airy feeling and great light invites lofty thoughts and can inspire great writing or artwork. Our friends and guests contribute artwork and designs for a fulfilling stay and local experience. El Palomar ('the dovecot') has a more subdued charm. It feels more like a bird's nest in the trees.
