Why minerva santos chose Old San Juan
The many times I traveled to Puerto Rico I found myself at the Rogativa ( historic statue) never knowing where I was headed, I found myself there. When I was looking for property I was surprised to find myself, again, at the Rogativa. The apartment was a shambles, need to be gutted but my heart was here. One year of renovations and it was my dream worth the headache of renovations.
What makes this Apartment unique
Across the street from the Governor's Mansion, this is the safest spot in Puerto Rico. Perfect combination of a quiet street yet minute's walk from all the action.

Awesome place with the best hosts!
We really enjoyed our stay. Such a cute place and well equipped. Great air conditioning in bedrooms. Jose was so nice and helpful- we really appreciated him looking out for us and helping with our luggage. Walking around Old San Juan we felt very safe and all the people were friendly and nice. Did a Spoon Food Tour and went to Fajardo to do miniboat tour and bio bay tour with kayaking Puerto Rico. Had such a good time.
Loved the Property
Great location. The property was clean, comfortable and well appointed. The property managers, Jose and Vicki, were wonderful. They were helpful with suggestions and had excellent recommendations on things to see and restaurants. They went above and beyond to make our stay an experience a most memorable one. We highly recommend this property
Our group had a wonderful stay. The location was perfect, just steps from the governors house with security around the clock. Extremely close to everything that Old San Juan offers. Jose was amazing, when we arrived he got us into the property for a quick tour, following this he gave us a walking tour around old San Juan, pointing out places to eat and giving a great history lesson. He was fantastic! It was very hot, so if you’re not used to humidity it may take a day or two to adjust, however both bedrooms had great AC. Without a doubt we would use this property again if we make it back, just wonderful!
Book This Right Now
We could not have been more happy with this rental. The unit was charming, immacutely clean, beautifully decorated and in a fantastic safe location close to El Moro, and all shops and restaurants. The beds were super comfortable and the rental had everything we needed. Our hosts thoughtfully had refreshments and coffee stocked and available. It is in a quiet area with amazing views and we loved absolutely loved it. Our host Minerva was great to work with and quickly responded to all inquiries. Everything was as described but no one told us about the amazing property managers Vickie and Jose. They were over the top fantastic and made our stay so much more enjoyable. We joked about Jose's incredible ability to magically appear anytime we were in the smallest predicament. It started to rain while we were out at dinner and in walked Jose with umbrellas. We had the slightest trouble opening the gate and there he was. We weren't sure where to park and Jose helped us find a great spot time and again. Vickie and Jose provided great recommendations and did everything they could to ensure we had a great trip. Our friendship with them will be part of the great memories we take home. We will absolutely rent this unit again and highly recommend it to all.
Nice little apartment in a perfect location
I booked this rental based on it's location near the center of Old San Juan and it's convenience to be able to walk to restaurants etc. in the city. But the fact that it is so close to the Governor's Mansion made it feel extra safe, which was nice.
The apartment itself isn't large, but the main bedroom is very large, and having 1 full bath plus a half bath was great since we had 4 people on the trip.
Minerva, the owner, was very good communicating, always quick to respond. Jose and Vickie, who manage the property were extra nice and went out of their way to make us feel at home.
Overall it was a great stay and I plan on staying there again in the future.
Thank you so much for your review. We look forward to seeing you again!
Loved the location and style of the apartment in Old San Juan. Within walking distance to everything in the area. Quiet at night. A/C in the bedrooms was welcomed when it came to sleeping. Jose was very nice and we really appreciated his help with us finding a lavatoria.
Thanks for letting us stay in your wonderful property
Part of the charm of Old San Juan is it's history and architecture. Plaza de Armas is two blocks away and an area where locals socialize and have coffee. La Fortaleza is the official residence of the Governor ; beautiful and massive it is open for tours. World famous El Morro was built to protect Puerto Rico from invaders and is worth going to. San Juan Cemetery is known as one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the world. Ocean facing graves with impressive sculptures deserve a look.
