About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom - House Size!

This is without exaggeration one of the most beautiful apartments in Old San Juan. It is a large charming Spanish Villa with high ceilings, large historic arches, roman statues, flowing vines, warm Caribbean colors, brick oven cooking area, open air swimming pool and poolside patio, and three charming bedrooms for your exclusive use. One of a handful of properties in Old San Juan that has a swimming pool.

In 1999 the film 'Undercurrent' was filmed there starring Lorenzo Lamas, Frank Vincent (from Goodfellas, Casino & Raging Bull), and Brenda Strong (Seinfeld, Desparate Housewives). Property has three bedrooms (each with queen bed).

In 2012 SONY Corporation selected this house as one of 4 homes in Puerto Rico to film video footage for their new ad campaign for a new High Definition TV product line, 4K. We were honored by their selection and look forward to seeing our villa in their tv ads.

If you wish to have a taste of the Spanish settlement around 1800's, you must consider to rent our villa. We have brought out the essence of the past and transformed to the today's needs. The villa is tastefully decorated with a Mediterranean style.

It has a swimming pool in the open air courtyard. The layout is unique based on the time was built. A large spiral staircase overtop the water brings you to the second floor. You certainly will fall in love with it and must dream every day back home of planning to stay with us again. First floor has living room area, one bedroom, kitchen and swimming pool and a large bathroom with open air shower in black pebble stones. Second floor has 2 bedrooms and a very comfortable bathroom with 2 sinks and bidet (2 doors access).

Excellent location and served our needs.

  • 4 of 5

We only spent 3 days in old San Juan and needed a place to stay in the heart of everything . The location is fantastic and we were able to walk everywhere ( no rental car). We really enjoyed our time in Old San Juan. We were only in the apt at night and early morning. The internet and direct tv worked fine. The A/C worked fine. The water pressure was low and the shower never really got very hot. Otto was very good to work with our early arrival and late departure. The way the SJU airport runs the taxis was very nice. Give them the destination, number of travelers and bags and they give you the price.

magical time

  • 5 of 5

our family of 5, with three rowdy teenagers loved our stay at cien Calle San Justo. Otto provided extra bed space for our third child and we all had privacy in the cool spacious villa. by day they rode bikes we rented from the awesome Robert at ; snorkeled at Culebra and other islands on the catamarans from Fajado, and all around Escambron beach ; checked out the museums, galleries, El Morro and Cristobal; took amazing photos; by night we ate and drank so much comida deliciosa! be sure to check out live music at the Nyorican cafe. Otto was super cool to let us use the upstairs apt. with roof deck for a couple of nights and we had drinks under the stars with friends we met in OSJ from Boston!

Very nice property in the heart of San Juan

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Otto's place in San Juan. Located in the middle of the old city and close to the Spanish fortifications, restaurants, and the beautiful walkway along the coast. The house is a treat!

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The property was absolutely gorgeous - every detail was perfect. We had a stray cat that lived out front on the street who would greet us most mornings :) The pictures for this place don't do it proper justice. It's the perfect getaway, perfect location, and Otto was incredibly helpful and attentive. Very highly recommended!
