Spacious 1 bedroom (with A/C) apartment for up to 2 persons in corner building with large tropical terrace (with hammock), equipped kitchen, living room, free WiFi, TV (Netflix too), and courtyard providing cross ventilation and tropical breezes.

My place is in Old San Juan, close to airport, public transport, parks, the arts & cultural scene, and excellent shopping and dining opportunities. My place is the perfect getaway for a couple.

The space

A perfect getaway apartment for a couple seeking to relax in a very well maintained penthouse apartment in an historically and tastefully remodeled Spanish Colonial 3-story corner building. Located on one of the most charming streets of Old San Juan, the apartment is nestled among homes, restaurants, and cafes along Calle Sol. Just two blocks away from commercial streets like Calle San Francisco which have pharmacies, coffee shops, supermarkets, boutiques, and retail stores and restaurants. The Penthouse apartment comfortably sleeps two in a queens sized bed in an air-conditioned room. A full kitchen and living room come equipped with necessities and comfort. However, one should take full advantage of the outdoor terrace which provides year-round outdoor sitting, dining and naps on the hammock. Free WiFi and TV (including NetFlix) are included and also a washer/dryer located in an over-sized and beautifully designed bathroom. We certainly hope to welcome you soon to this ideal getaway in lovely Old San Juan.

Interaction with guests

We are available before, during and after your stay for any question you may have.

Other things to note

TIPS FOR BETTER LIVING IN THE TROPICS
First of All: Be Happy, Relax & Enjoy - you are on a beautiful, sunny, tropical
Island, which requires an open heart and mind to be fully enjoyed!
Stay happy! - even if anything is missing or broken. Simply contact us
immediately and we will be glad to help.
Remember you are renting a Home away from Home and no one likes a
stinky apartment: Therefore the garbage goes out daily. And the dishes are
specially made to break after 2 hours of being used unless they get cleaned.
To avoid any extra charges for broken dishes simply clean them.
We are in the tropics and if you want to have your food and drinks for
yourself, store almost everything in the fridge. If not you might have to share it
with unwanted animals or the humidity and heat may destroy some foods.
The plumbing system on tropical Islands appears to be delicate. Therefore
it is important not to throw any sanitary items, Condoms and not even a lot of
toilet paper at the same time in the toilet. Misuse may end in clogged toilets
and extra charges!, if misuse would be proven by Plumber.
It also rains on a sunny island. Please close all doors and windows while
exploring “paradise”. If you don't the apartment may get flooded and you would
have a lot of extra work.
!!!Please be environmentally friendly!!! We are a small Island in the middle
of the Atlantic Ocean with limited access to resources! PLEASE do not waste
fresh water! Only turn on A/C while being at home. Turn off A/C when leaving
the apartment. Close all windows and doors while running the A/C.
You have chosen to stay in a condo with real neighbors that are
unfortunately not on vacation and deserve their good night sleep. Please keep
the volume down after 10PM and before 9AM.
Please make arrangements for your check-in or out a few days before it
actually happens, so we can prepare for a smooth arrival and departure.
In case of EMERGENCY please call 911! And please inform us as well -
send a text message or call to the following numbers: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) and

Upon arriving, I discovered the photos of this apartment were quite deceiving. Here's what the photos and description don't say: All of the rooms in the apartment are connected by a long hallway that is without an entire wall, leaving an open railing and direct exposure to the floor below so you can be directly seen by the residents directly below you. If you're looking for a quiet, romantic or private stay you'll want to look elsewhere. No part of the description or photos does a fair or accurate job of showing this. The fact that half of the apartment is exposed to downstairs also created quite a noise issue as the young guys downstairs were quite loud. Because there's no roof covering the hallway area, when it rains, water splashes directly onto the hallway floor making walking about quite slippery and dangerous! The hammock featured in the picture on the terrace was also broken.

A great place for an authentic Puerto Rican experience. Great location in Old San Juan. Hosts left us alone, but were available if we needed anything.

This place was truly fantastic! Gorgeous apartment within walking distance to everything in Old San Juan. Contained everything needed for a comfortable four-night stay. Take the parking warnings seriously - it's a bit of a nightmare in OSJ and it seemed parking garages were the only option, some of which are very expensive ($50/day!).

Perfectly located for everything you could possibly want to do in Old San Juan. A beautiful, cozy place to come back to in between adventures.

PROS: very walkable and central to restaurants and nightlife in OSJ, beautiful Spanish architecture, and very nice terrace/balcony that's both private but also exposes sounds and sunsets of OSJ above the other buildings. CONS: had a small issue with ants during our stay, which was manageable; the AC is only in the bedroom, which I don't think was specified, and due to construction in the neighborhood it was pretty loud at times, especially in the early morning. However, the biggest concern was the tight space in the walkway between the bedroom and the toilet/shower, and that it's left exposed to the other stories in the building (it's very open, which is intentional as it was used for ventilation purposes), but can be a bit dangerous, particularly when it rains, as the rain covers the hallway. Finally, the hammock wasn't operational upon arrival, which was kind of a disappointment because it added an additional layer of relaxation we were looking forward to in our stay. Despite all this, we still really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to family and friends, just with the above caveats in mind. It wouldn't have changed our mind about staying here, but wanted to share with you all. We're grateful for a lovely stay in a beautifully and colorfully built place in the heart of OSJ!

Response from Annett & Andrés:
We are always grateful to learn more how to better meet expectations of our guests. We do regularly have an exterminator as well as change ant traps on a regular basis too, however even with all kinds of prevention we may have ants coming out at certain moments of the year, especially during rainy days. We will gladly send a professional any time this may happen, but can only do so if we are informed at the moment. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us at any time. We do make sure guests are shown how to quickly set up the hammock for their use when they first arrive. But we also do recommend putting the hammock away when not using so it doesn’t wet and ruined by frequent short bursts of rain. We will caution guests when they arrive and receive tour of the apartment about the floor by bathroom getting wet, and potentially slippery when there is heavy rain, as the bathroom is next to the large courtyard which is in all three apartments, so there is some openness and views of courtyard area, but that is very common in old Spanish style buildings like this one.

Place was great. Some toiletries would be nice.
Annett & Andrés User Profile
Response from Annett & Andrés:
We provide each guest with initial hand- & dish soap, a sponge for dishes, paper towel & toilet paper. As we are not a hotel, we chose not to provide other personal care items such as body wash, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, etc. We do mention those details in advance in our house rules as we want to ensure our guests know what we do and do not provide, and meet expectations.
