This listing is for the booking of two available private rooms on the 2nd floor of this house, and NOT the entire house. There is a private bathroom in between both rooms, connecting them. The first room has a desk, closet, queen sized bed, and private patio. The private patio has several 8 foot fruit trees and ferns and is a pleasure to have a drink or smoke at any time. The second room (the one without the private patio), has a full sized bed, television, closet and two desks. The second room may only be used to sleep in if there is a reservation for more than 2 people. Just to make it clear, if you make a reservation with this listing, you are essentially booking both rooms, since they share a bathroom. For example, if you book this listing for two people, the other room will remain empty. If you're interested in using both rooms, where each person has their own room, please let me know and it will be an additional 30 dollars a night. Furthermore the current price only reflect a reservation for two people, each additional person after two people will cost 30 dollars per night. The rooms are very private and detached from other living spaces, therefore making noise is not a problem.
This property is one of the few remaining complete colonial houses In Old San Juan. The house was completely renovated to its former glory a little over 10 years ago. The house is about 4000 square feet and has 4 separate interior patios with lush vegetation. Guests can use the living and dinning rooms, as well as all the patios and kitchen. There are 16 foot ceilings with ceiling fans and air conditioners in every room on the first floor. There is limited use of the kitchen. You can use the refrigerator, microwave, plates, cups, and toaster, but no cooking. My mother and I live in the house with two cute dogs. There are also cats that live in Miriams room and her personal patio. Although they dont roam the house, it still triggered one of our former guests cat allergies, so be aware. There is no curfew in the house and you may return at any time after a night out.

About Richard Morris
We are a family of two living in this house. We love living in Old San Juan and just recently found that we love having guests in our home. It is just me and my mother living here at the moment, with our two dogs and a cat. If you stay with us you will experience one of the most authentic and luxurious accommodations in the city. Just a friendly notice is that all communications will be done by Richard.

Beautiful home in a great location in Old San Juan. 5-minute walk to El Morro and literally everything else just outside your door. We walked the city day and night. Safe, clean, very friendly. Communication with owners, Miriam and Richard, very easy. My husband, twelve-year old son and I loved it!! We'd stay here again. Highly recommend it.
This house is beautiful and in a great location
We arrived at this beautiful home that has been completely restored by the family, and we're greeted and given the run down of the house. The beds are super comfortable and the a/c systems work extremely good. This location is great if you want to be in the best part of Puerto Rico and have everything within blocks of easy walking. Restaurants, shopping, scenary and nightlife all right here. Was a great experience and would definitely come back to stay in this beautiful home that this family has given up for tourist to enjoy. Thanks again to Richard Daniel and Miriam they were all very helpful.
Beautiful home in a fantastic location
There were 3 of us and we shared 2 rooms with a shared bath. The home was great. We never met Richard but did his mom, sister and brother. All were very friendly. The home was clean and spacious.
We stayed 2 nights in this gorgeous home. All the positive reviews I read were spot on.
If you're addicted to TV like my girlfriend then choose another place as there is none in the room or main living room. I had no problem since we were on vacation. Internet connection was excellent so I did catch up on hot stove baseball in the evenings before bed.
Located in a quiet area which was perfect. You can walk everywhere in Old San Juan.
If I ever return, I will look to stay here again.
Such great hosts and lovely place to stay
Richard and Miriam were a wealth of knowledge and shared many things with us about old San Juan and it's recovery from hurricane Maria. They did their best to accommodate us in a difficult time with water and intermittent power.
It was a great experience and we would book with them again in the future.
We loved our stay here, fantastic place, very warm and inviting host.
Right in the heart of Old San Juan, super convenient to all local spots. Home is amazing, traditional Old San Juan architecture. Thank you Miriam we loved our stay.
