Additional Location Information
Enjoy the romance of Old San Juan with its cobblestone streets, 16th century buildings and legendary cultural events, shopping and nightlife, without trudging up the hill at the end of the day, from your very own lavishly appointed and meticulously maintained apartment in an historic building, on the best and most secure block in Old San Juan, in the middle of the gallery/shopping district; bustling during the day, and quiet at night.
The building is surrounded by historic monuments. We are 1 block south of the Cathedral de San Juan, 1 block north of the Cristo Chapel, Pigeon Park, and La Fortaleza (the Governor’s Mansion) so there are 2 policemen on our corner 24/7.
One block west is the Plaza de Armas, where you'll find cafes, grocery and drug stores as well as a stop for the free trolleys that go around San Juan, and a taxi stand. You are 2 blocks south of the El Convento Hotel and the Puerta de San Juan, the ancient gateway to the city. Here you enter the middle of the "Paseo": a beautiful mile long walkway along the bay that stretches from the ancient cemetery to the cruise ship docks. This is a great morning jog or walk.
Legendary nightlife is 4 blocks away: "SoFo" restaurant district to the east, and San Sebastian St. for clubs & bars to the North (up the hill).
Finding parking in Old San juan can be challenging. On street parking is free, or there are several pay parking lots within a few blocks. (see map in large photo # 27) Unless you're planning on exploring the Island, you won't need a car. Old San Juan is only 8 sq. blocks, and we are right in the middle. We are 20 min. from the airport, and there are always cabs there.
The nearest great beach (see large photo # 25) is a long walk or short bus or cab ride away. Most people prefer to stay in Old San juan and "travel" to the beach rathar than the other way around, because everything else you want to do or see is here, and traffic coming into Old San Juan, particularly at night can be a nightmare.

Additional notes from the owner
We require a 25% deposit, fully refundable with cancelation up to 90 days before scheduled arrival.
Your balance will be charged to that same card by 6pm the day of your scheduled arrival.
When you call to make the deposit we will ask for your arrival time.
Check in is 4pm Check out is 11am
If these times are inconvenient for you, you may leave your bags between 10am - 6pm 7 days a week.
Once you have checked in and accepted the apartment, there is no refund possible.
If you are ariving before 6 pm just go into the store to pay your balance, and one of the employees will take you upstairs to get you settled in.
If you arriving after 6pm, you'll ring my bell. I live on the 3rd floor. I'll buzz you in, then meet you on the 2nd floor.
Please note that utility services throughout Puerto Rico are somewhat feeble. It is not unusual for the city supply of water, electricity or both to go out with or without notice. We have a 2000 gallon water cistern, which is enough to last the building several days if everyone’s careful. Water outages rarely last that long. There is however, no remedy for city caused power outages. If the power goes out you should turn off anything that was on before the power failure, and disconnect anything you may have charging, because when the power comes back on, it often returns with a surge that can be harmful to appliances or devices on, or connected. So, please be advised that we cannot be responsible for damages or inconvenience caused by city power outages, or lack of water if our cistern is exhausted.
DATES SHOWN BELOW AS BOOKED APPLY ONLY TO BOTH APARTMENTS, If it appears not booked, one of the apartments may be booked.
Please note that for the SAN SEBASTIAN FESTIVAL, (the weekend before the January MLK holiday) WE ARE FULLY BOOKED FOREVER! PLEASE DO NOT INQUIRE, we will not respond.
If you are not here for the festival that weekend, believe me, you don't want to be ANYWHERE near Old San Juan, because the city is paralyzed.
