About Lourdes

We bought this property because we love Old San Juan. It is the best place to be when you are in Puerto Rico!

Lourdes purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Lourdes chose Old San Juan

It is in the heart of Old San Juan, on a quiet street, close to the Ocean Walk.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The host was very helpful and friendly and the apartment was as lovely as described. The location is excellent and the neighborhood too. We were able to visit all the key locations including the classic tourist attractions as well as many restaurants and other points of interest, all without the need of a rental car. The security of the apartment was apparent and the comforts of the accommodations were more than adequate. Still, the cost was reasonable and affordable for a great value. We would highly recommend this as a place to enjoy Old San Juan to the most.

Very Good Apartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is extremely well located in the old town of San Juan. As an older couple we found it roomy and comfortable. The A/C worked well and aside for a minor complaint about cleanliness we were well satisfied with our choice. Lourdes was communicative and efficient.

Beautiful, authentic experience in Old San Juan!

My husband and I enjoyed our three nights on Calle Sol very much. The apartment was lovely, clean, and had all we could ask for. We loved the shuttered doors that opened up to the two balconies. Great linens, comfortable furniture and bed.... Gorgeous!

Great place, close to everything.

But would never stay there again during the festival. We had to leave town for a couple of days to avoid the crowds, drunk people and all night noise which was in the street next to us.

Great apartment at a very convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the apartment for 4 days and 3 nights, it is located close to San Cristobal in Calle Sol. The one bedroom apartment is extremely spacious, with a kitchen, living room and 2 small balconies. It has A/C in both the bedroom and living room/kitchen space which feels great after a long day walking around Old San Juan. The owners were extremely helpful and available for any questions or concerns we had.

I recommend this property and would definitely stay here again.

Great place for night life

  • 5 of 5

Although most other guests are couples, three college students took a chance to stay here. It turns out it is exactly everything we needed. It was close to great restaurants, bars, and shops in Old San Juan. The house is clean, cozy, and resourceful. Everything is updated and works just fine. The balconies are the best part of this home, and you'll find yourself using them all the time. Lourdes is great, hospitable, and a great resource for places to go. The closest swimming beach is about 1.5 miles, which wasn't too bad of a walk. I can't wait to plan another trip.

Perfect oasis in Old San Juan

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights and couldn't be happier. Great location for exploring the old city. On a quiet stretch of Calle Sol. Within one block, an ocean view, a great bar called the Palms and El Jibarito, a decent restaurant. The forts and all the other attractions are within easy walking distance. The flat is roomy, bright, clean, nicely decorated, well-ventilated with ceiling fans and the air con is quiet. Enjoyed sitting on the balcony with a cold beer, watching the world go by below. The king-size bed is very comfortable. Perfect for a couple. Our daughter stayed with us one night -- the futon in the living room makes a good bed for a third person. The owners, Miguel and Lourdes, are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
