San Juan apartment description

This apartment is unique! This amazing artsy loft is in a historic building. The loft is on street level. No carrying luggage up a steep flight of stairs or walking down some dark corridor to reach it. 20 ft. high ceilings and marble floors in the lower level. Hard wood stairs (comfortable to climb, not too steep) lead you to the second level where the beautifully designed kitchen, the dining area and bedrooms are located. All hard wood floor on the second level. An original mural by artist Sofia Maldonado adorns the hallway. Stunning contemporary art pieces on all the walls.
The spacious master bedroom has a queen size bed. The second room has two twin beds and a small futon. In total we can accomodate 5 people. Most apartments in Old San Juan have just one bathroom. Ours has 1 1/2 bathrooms. Full bathroom on the first floor and 1/2 bathroom on the second. Quiet, comfortable, spacious, a/c in all areas. Condominium has two interior patios in common areas. This apartment is very elegant! You will live a luxurious vacation if you stay in the Artsy Loft.

Starbucks, Old Harbor Brewery, local bars, the most lively 'plazas' are one and two blocks away. Long walk (with Atlantic Ocean View) to Escambron beach, Condado and Miramar or take the bus or a cab!

          • Children Welcome:

            We welcome children but there are two matters that concern us. 1.There are stairs to the second floor of the loft where the kitchen and rooms are. So, the loft may not be suitable for small children for security matters. Parents must judge what is best for them. 2. We love the art on our walls. Some of the pieces almost touch the floor so they're at children's reach. Parents should be extra careful with the art pieces. Please do not touch the art. ...moreless

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About: I love Old San Juan. It is like a small village full of charm, history and wonderful people! You haven't been to Puerto Rico if you don't stay in Old San Juan.

                  Why San Juan:
                  We needed a lot of imagination when we bought this loft! We had to rebuild it from scratch. But that is the fun of it! Today, it is nowhere near what it was then. The restauration took over a year. But we knew it was going to be unique! And it is!! Marble and hard wood floors, exquisite contemporary art, all new appliances. It is the Artsy Loft! Unique in Old San Juan.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  It is situated in one of the best streets in San Juan, close to all the great restaurants and hotels. Completely repaved, Tetuan Street goes from the Teatro Tapia up to la Capilla del Cristo. It is a wonderful promenade. It is also close to the port and the beautiful Paseo La Princesa. Walking distance from taxi stand, bus stop and parking lots. What more could I ask for!
