Apartment located in the historical Old city of San Juan. Great balcony view and close to all the great restaurants and shopping streets. Still quiet and comfortable for a good sleep. One queen size bed & 2 full size futons, fits up to 6 people.
**** At the moment (due to security and cleaning issues), we are not accepting reservations from guests with children younger than 8yrs old stay at our place. Sorry for the inconvenience***
This apartment has one private bedroom with a queen size bed, one bathroom, a kitchen, a common area with two futons and a small terrace over-viewing 'Plaza Barandilla'. Great for a group of 4-5 people, but can be rented out by couples and singles alike.
It's located in a centric area of Old San Juan and within walking distance of all the cities main attractions, areas of historical significance, colonial buildings, plazas, cafes, restaurants, shopping district, live music venues and events!!! We love to meet our guests and share information about other places to visit within Puerto Rico and around the world!
This is a 3rd floor apartment and there are no elevators... all stairs! So, you get a great stay and a small workout, all-in-one ;) The building and the apartment itself is quite old (it has the original floor tiles, high ceilings, iron and elaborated stairs handrail) but it is kept clean and in great condition. Since Old San Juan is the oldest settlement within Puerto Rico, the building is a nice example of early Spanish colonial architecture. San Francisco street is safe and well lit ; there are always people and local residents strolling the area so, feel free to mingle at any time.
Although breakfast is not provided, coffee, tea and drinking water will be available to our guests. At the moment we don't have cable TV, but do have a TV & DVD available, as well as an iPod doc stereo. No internet, but you can get public WiFi access at any of the nearby plazas and most cafes.

This is the perfect location for seeing Old San Juan. The entire city is accessible by foot. The apartment was just lovely. Every morning you could look out the balcony and see OSJ come alive. Carla had the bathroom stocked with shampoo and all necessities. The kitchen had everything you could need, and if you wanted something extra, the mercado was just down the street. I could not have dreamed of a better spot to stay. Thank you so much Carla. I'll most definitely be coming back!
We had a wonderful experience with Carla and the apartment. Amazing location, historic sites within walking distance but if you would like to take the trolley the house is conveniently located for that as well.
The building is very secure and there are several locks needed to get in and out. Balcony was lovely and the apartment is exactly like it is in the pictures.
Carla was great. She kept in touch with us and met us when we got to the apartment. She provided information about the area, restaurant choices, and some nice walking routes in the city. She provided us with clean sheets and towels. Overall, she was very nice and accommodating. I would most definitely rent from her again.
We had a great 6-night stay. This unit is right in the middle of Old San Juan, making for super easy access to everything it has to offer. Being right in the center of it, there can be a fair amount of street noise at night. This didn't bother me, as I sleep through everything, but the second night there my wife found a box of ear plugs at a local store that she used to help her sleep.
We had a delayed flight, but Carla kept in communication with us and met us right on time for our keys, despite the touch-and-go with the flight schedule. Everything was clean and orderly. People complain about the stairs, but we didn't find that to be a problem. If you're going to walk the city anyway, what's a few stairs?
One thing to note is that the bed is less of a bed and more of a futon with additional padding on the top for comfort. We found it to be more comfortable than many hotel beds we've slept on, but some people with sensitive sleeping might want to keep that in mind.
Great time - Old San Juan is pretty and there area a few restaurants with great dining. We made a couple day trips out to other parts of the island that I highly recommend doing. We'd definitely stay at this unit again.
This place was beautiful! We felt like we were really in the culture here. At night we heard classical music played in the square, a flute, oboe, and piccolo! It was really clean, lots of towels, sheets and pillows. Great experience for Old San Juan!
We adored this in-old-town townhouse: the location, the layout, the view. Plenty of towels, bed was comfy, and futons good for an afternoon snooze. Kitchen was well provisioned--even the fridge had drinks, coffee, tea, and snacks for us! Thanks Carla! Same for the bathroom. We arrived with no toothpaste, but we were well provisioned.
Carla was terrific to work around our arrival schedule to introduce us to the abode.
We played dominoes on the wee veranda overlooking San Francisco Street while we sipped our Rum & Tonics. Plenty of good places to eat nearby, and just below is one of the Old Town trolley stops, which we used the first day to get oriented.
Cities can be noisy, so we used the AC at night, as much for sound control as comfort. It worked just fine.
We loved Old San Juan, and that included our home while there!
Great appartment well located in old San Juan. Carla and her father helped us when we had questions (parking, shops, etc). I highly recommend this place! Everything was exactly how we expected.
nice, unpretentious apartment overlooking a wonderful (trees filled with green parrots) Old San Juan plaza, spent lots of time people watching. apt is charming and spacious for two. great instructions, fantastic location. helpful host. great value. thanks. .
I had an excellent two day stay at Carla's place. I felt very welcome on arrival, the location is perfect, the apartment is quiet at night, the place is clean and the bed is comfortable... I would stay here again and highly recommend this place to others.
We had a fantastic stay at this apartment. It is right in the center of Old San Juan, within easy walking distance to everything you'd want to see. The building itself is beautiful, and the balcony looking over the square is great. There is a grocery store up the street, as well as several squares that always seem to have something going on, which lead to a bit of noise in the apartment, but nothing too bad.
We would highly recommend staying at this apartment if you want to be in the center of it all in Old San Juan.
Carla's apartment was perfect for us! It was right in the middle of Old San Juan so we could walk around and then come back to rest and the floor to ceiling windows opened up onto a plaza and a little balcony. It was clean and comfortable - good beds, hot shower and fluffy towels. The living room had two double futon couches so we had plenty of room to sit and my kids each had a bed. I would go back again and again if I could.
