Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This location is a perfect one in Viejo San Juan. It's located near all of the shops and restaurants in town. It's also at a location which makes it easy to get out of town and head onto other places on this island. It's perfect.

It's got an amazing view which over looks the waters and a fort. The apartment itself is fully equipped with all of your needs which includes a Britta water pitcher in the fridge so we always had ice cold water. The towels and bedding were top notch and made us feel like Bernardo and Irma really want to treat their visitors with class. Bernardo called to make sure that we had all that we needed and were happy with our choice, which we were.

Cozy and Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property hoping to find a cozy place to chill after traveling throughout Puerto Rico for the week. The property was more than that. It has makes guests feel at home yet also feel like they

are on vacation. The views from the front of the property are amazing and having the ability to open the old slatted doors for a nice breeze made it heaven.

Bernardo was a great host. He stopped by to give us a few pointers about the neighborhood and the island which we truly appreciated.

Just a couple of things you may want to know. Parking is scarce so if you are just staying in old San Juan, it's an easy walking town and you don't need a car. Get a cab to the property instead of getting a car. Make sure you have good walking shoes because the property is at the top of the hill and everything else is down hill and most of the streets are cobblestone. Because parking is so scarce, if you have a car, leave it where you park it and walk town otherwise you may have to park farther away to find a parking spot . If you want groceries, stop BEFORE you get to the property. There is a store down in Viejo San Juan but as I stated before, if you have a car and insist on taking it downtown,you'll have to find a parking spot. If you walk it, its all uphill with the groceries and you won't be able to stop at the wonderful shops along the way so, get your coffee and such prior to getting to the property to save a lot of hassles.

Even after reading all the great reviews and seeing the pics, the location exceeded all of our expectations. The property was clean and quaint. Bernardo was available for any and all questions, as well as any additional items needed. Bernardo was a great resource on places to visit as well as eat. He was a wonderful concierge. Being right across the street from the ocean and the Fort was an unforgettable experience. We can't wait to return. Thank You Bernardo.

Wonderful Setting on Location

  • 5 of 5

This property was clean, maintained and located within walking distance to everything in Old San Juan. The apartment was near the street, which the noise wasn't bad. The parking was rather interesting. If you don't have to rent a car "dont"! Taxi's are inexpensive and the money stays local. Irma and Bernado were very helpful on directions and recommendations on restaurants, historical sites of interest. They called and checked on us which we appreciated. Thank you Irma & Bernado!! I'll be coming back!!

Wonderful apartment in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at the apartment via taxi from the airport and had no trouble getting the keys and access to the apartment. It was just as, eating area, couch, tv, bedroom, bathroom and air conditioning. The location was amazing, next to one of the forts and the ocean is just outside the front door. Open the door and windows and the ocean breeze kept the apartment cool. We were walking distance to everything in Old San Juan and had no trouble getting taxis when we needed to head into the city.

Bernardo called to check on us and even stopped by to try and fix the tv.

It was a great experience.

Old San Juan Apt.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time staying at your apartment. It was so much fun to view the ocean everyday. We could catch the free trolly right out front. Everything that we needed was within walking distance. The apartment was equipped with everything we needed for cooking. It was clean and we enjoyed the new fresh white towels. Even though it was on a main street, it was still very quiet at night. Have already recommended your apartment to our friends. It was so kind of the owners to meet us there when we arrived and show us the town.
