    Bayfront Oasis in Old San Juan's Safest Neighborhood!

    Adults-only San Juan apartments in Old San Juan, walk to San Juan Gate
    Our beautiful, recently renovated home exudes the charm and magic of Old San Juan while providing luxury & comfort for guests. The first thing you will notice is the lack of a "lock box" but personalized attention, you are greeted by Vickie and Jose. They are a wealth of information regarding places to go, events, eateries and activities. Walk by the limbe vendor on the first floor (quintessential Old San Juan!) up to the second floor and enter the apartment. The living room opens to a beautiful balcony overlooking La Rogativa with breathtaking views of the San Juan Bay. Comfortable pull-out sofa, TV, dining table and chairs, sideboard and artwork fill the main living space. The kitchen features stainless steel refrigerator and apron-front sink, custom-built pantry and cabinetry. Hallway leads from kitchen past a half-bath to the enormous master bedroom, with very comfortable queen bed, nightstands, dresser and love seat. Continue from the master bedroom past an office nook / study to the full bathroom with custom-tiled shower. The second bedroom rests in the back, furnished with a daybed ( two twin beds) and vanity. The many windows and an interior wall of frosted glass allow the entire apartment to be filled with the light of the Caribbean sun! The breeze from the bay cools the house accented by the overhead fans in each room. There is air conditioning in the bedrooms.This spacious ( for Puerto Rico) 1200 foot apartment is in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Old San Juan. There is NO smoking in any areas of the apartment even the balconies. This quiet upscale neighborhood is one of the safest in Puerto Rico. Directly across from the Governor's mansion there is 24 hour guards! We cannot allow any parties as this is a residentlal area. Walk around the corner and you are facing the Cathedral, El Convento and a few steps take you to Plaza Del Armas, supermarkets and our favorite "the Poets Passage" where you can find unique souvenirs and have a cup of coffee/tea and relax. For the shoppers there is Ralph Lauren, Coach, El Galpon (hats), Burberry and Guess! Fine jewelry can be found at E Barquet or Bared. Puerto Rico has a rich tradition in crafting hand-rolled cigars so try the Cigar House. History filled sites such as El Morro, San Juan Cemetery, El Yunque is a world famous rainforest, La Fortaleza are a must. Many beaches such as Carolina Beach are clean, safe and the caribbean water is warm and clear blue. Fishing, water skiing, horseback riding, Jet skiing , snorkeling are all within a half hour ride. There are brochures with information regarding activities and sights. My cousin Victoria and her husband are there to greet you and are a wealth of information regarding places to go, eat and visit. They are directly across the street should any questions arise. If you are looking for a safe area and want to experience the beauty of Old San Juan this is the place for you.

      Beautiful and Historic San Juan

      This apartment in San Juan is well located and well maintained. It is walking distance to all historical monuments and has a beautiful view. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking gear and the managers were always available when I needed them. I gave only four stars instead of five for two reasons. One is that the gate exiting the building is tricky to unlock. I meant to mention to the manager when I was there that a little WD-40 would probably do the trick! Also, I feel that this unit is best suited to an individual or a couple. The back bedroom is not very comfortable and the pull-out sofa is really not appropriate for sleeping. (I know because I tried it.) That being said, if I return to Old San Juan I would definitely stay here again!

        The best location to watch sunsets and feel the power of La Rogativa.

        Comfortable apartment, beautiful view and helpful, friendly and génerous hosts! Easy walking to Paseo Princesa, San Francisco street and the wonderful old city! Thank you Vicki and Jose

          This property has a perfect location very close to the Puerta de San Juan. The “red gate” gets you to a pathway along the water that takes you to El Morro, a fort built by Spain in the 1600s. It’s also down the street from the Catedral de San Juan and close to plenty of great restaurants and shops. Jose and Vickie are wonderful! They live close by and we’re happy to show us around the neighborhood. They provided umbrellas for us on a rainy day. And Jose is quite the chef! He treated us with delicious soup, fish, squid rice and avocado. Yum! We hope to make it back to Old San Juan again and would definitely stay here.

            What the Dr. ordered...

            Every bit as lovely as it looks. Its all been said in previous reviews, but I’ll add this: Vicky and Jose are perfect. They are close and available, but never intrusive or hovering..

              Old town charm.

              This rental was excellent in every way. Great views of the bay, cozy beds and excellent service. Response time from Minnie was fast and Vicki and Jose were top notch. Great restaurant recommendations. You will not be disappointed staying here.
