About the Property

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 5 /6

Unique,charming and private 2/1 New kitchen leading to a sunny large terrace/patio to enjoy just about any activity,coffee,drinks in late evening. Overlooking part of the city below. Or resting after a day at the beach or shopping spree in the old city.

Walking distance from a World Class Casino at the El Convento Hotel. In front of the San Juan Cathedral. Many very good restaurants to choose from.Minimum Stay 4 Nights. Please note that There are significant rate changes in January for a period of four days only. Please inquire as specific days change every year.

Equipped with Satellite TV and Wireless Internet.A/C There is a cistern in case of a water shortage in an emergency.
Naturally well ventilated with cross ventilation ,but if you prefer you can turn on the A/C.But you would have to close all doors and windows or the conditioned air would escape causing unneeded power loss.

This whole complex was built by the Spanish Army for a High echelon Army officer. During the Spanish conquest. This apartment is located on a second floor but only a few easy steps due to wider than usual staircase.Perhaps not suitable for the physically challenged.

The largest shopping center in the Caribbean is just a 15 minute ride by Taxi or Public Transportation
.Also the beach and one of the best passive parks in the area.And plenty of museums.

Close by is a supermarket,drugstores and laundromat. A lot of local and US restaurants to enjoy. There is even local delivery at no extra cost,just the tip to the delivery person
You really have plenty of choices and in the beach is your cup of tea,we can arrange a days beach tour to whatever beaches you may wish to visit.

A good exercise is walking to El Morro Castle (About 5 blocks away),then walking right behind the governors mansion and on to the best souvenier shops and the best restaurants in the area. There is even a local artisan Brewery in the area. walk back to your apartment and you will not have to visit a gym for awhile. No ,really ,it is a very exhilarating experience. Our area is one of the best in the city.plenty of transportation Bus,train etc.

We offer special rates during the year,please check or ask for the offers of the period you are interested in. The first weeks in January, for a very short period the rate changes,you must ask for exact dates as the 4 day festivity changes every year.

Come visit us,mi casa es tu casa.... Our home is your home.
