Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in a palace? Ours is a romantic 200-year-old architectural wonder built for one of San Juan's earliest rum barons and remains one of the most beautiful properties in the old city. It features soaring, 18-foot ceilings, cathedral-style acoustics, marble floors and Moroccan tiles. You'll be surrounded by simple beauty, shower in a gigantic Roman spa, cook in an inspirational kitchen and listen to the coqui frogs in your private courtyard.
