Manager info

Year Purchased: 1994

About: After many years in other businesses,retirement dictated to dedicate our efforts to promoting our Island. Our beautiful Puerto Rico. We had acquired the property for our home but destiny had other plans. So I decided to do what I liked best. Public relations. Thus ,what better way but to short term rentals and meeting many people from different parts of the world.

Why San Juan:
History fscinates me and this property certainly fits the bill. It was built in 1804 for a Spanish Army Officer( 18 in the family) Also it is a very peaceful place.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Walking distance to just about anywhere in this old city. Amiable residents. Plenty of culture. and activities. Restaurants,Luxury Hotels nearby. The Waterfront Fantastic sunsets seen fro the fort nearby. You name it. Away from it all. Who needs anything else?
