+There is NO STREET PARKING IN OLD SAN JUAN. Street parking is only available for full-time residents of Old San Juan. When visiting this area, be sure to park in one of the nearby parking garages. We advise you follow these rules since parking tickets start at $250.

Parking Lots...
-Estacionamiento Doña Fela: This parking garage is open 24/7 and the least
expensive option for parking. It starts at $1.25 for the first hour and then every hour after that is $0.50. At 4PM until 6AM the parking garage has a flat rate of $4+tax. This flat rate is added anytime you are in the parking garage after 4PM.
Location:Calle Recinto Sur, San Juan, 00902

-Estacionamiento Ballajá: This is an underground parking lot near “El Morro” and the Cuartel de Ballajá. This is also a good option for parking. It is a little more expensive in comparison to Doña Fela but convenient since it is located at the other side of Old San Juan.
Location: Calle Morovis, San Juan, 00926

-La Cochera: This parking space in Old San Juan is a valet service that you may use. It is the most expensive option but the most central in terms of arriving to most of the properties in the old city. It starts with hourly rates of $7+
Location: 207 Calle San Francisco, San Juan, 00901

*As you enter the garage, take a ticket and keep it with you. Do not leave it in your car. You will either pay at a cashier’s window or ticketing machine on the main floor before returning to your car to exit the complex.
*When using the parking garages, make sure you have $$$ CASH $$$ with you since many parking garages do not accept any other form of payment.


+Basic amenities have been provided including clean bedding, fresh towels, bathroom supplies, and kitchen utensils. You also have full access to all amenities within the property. Extra towels, sheets, and blankets can be found in the closet. The kitchen is at your disposal. Feel free to use the cooking ware, utensils, and appliances as needed. There is plenty of storage space available for groceries. After using cooking ware, please be sure to wash and put them back in their appropriate space.

+NO SMOKING, NO PARTIES, and NO EVENTS. We do not allow this behavior or activity to take place at our properties. If we receive complaints of loud music, smoke, physical altercations, screaming, loud guests, etc. there will be a charge of $100 for disturbance of other guest and host, plus breaking house rules. Further charges will incur if there is damage to the property or over occupation of the property. There are other people who are guests/residents of the property and it is important to be mindful of others during your stay. As well, these sorts of activities can cause damage to the property itself.

+Air Conditioning: The property has remote activated A/C units.

- ALL AIR CONDITIONING UNITS SHOULD NEVER BE PUT BELOW 68F/20C DEGREES.
- ALL AIR CONDITIONING UNITS SHOULD ALWAYS BE PUT ON AUTO MODE.
- Switching the temperature below 68F/20C DEGREES or changing the mode to COOL, can cause the units to leak since they are being overworked as well as creating greater damage that could result in a non-functioning AC unit during your stay if guidelines are not followed. Please let us know if you experience any issues with the units and we will be happy to call a technician to come and analyze the problem.
*Once monthly we schedule a routine AC unit maintenance and will inform guest prior to the date in which we need to access the apartment to clean the units to ensure the machines runs smoothly.

+Toilet: When it comes to using the toilets, please be mindful of what you are flushing,for example: lots of toilet paper. The plumbing in the buildings of Old San Juan are older and sometimes experiences complications from incorrect items going down the toilet. There will be garbage cans in each of your bathrooms in which you should dispose of all toilet paper, make-up wipes, and feminine hygiene products.

+Garbage/Recycling in Old San Juan: There are green and red bins located throughout the streets. You are welcome to throw trash and recycling into these bins. The green bins are for garbage and the red bins are for recycling. The only material that is not recycled in Puerto Rico is glass.

+Garbage/Recycling in Condado/Ocean Park: There are garbage bins in a designated area around each Building (usually in front of property). Unfortunately, there is no recycling bin for these locations.

+Fumigation: Every second Thursday of each month we have a routine fumigation process to prevent from insects and vermin from entering the apartments. I will be accompanying the fumigation crew as we pass through every apartment in the area. The treatment is completely safe and only takes a matter of two minutes to spray around the perimeter of the apartments. It is made up of organic materials intended to kill and prevent these types of insects and vermin common to the area.
Let me know if you have any questions about the process. This is a mandatory fumigation that will begin at 10:00AM in which we will go apartment by apartment in the area to quickly spray the treatment.

+Keys: As part of check-out process, keys need to be returned to original lockbox. If left inside of the unit, guest will be charged $35 for not following house rules and check-out instructions. By not properly leaving the keys in their original place, it creates disorganization for our process to prepare apartments in a timely manner for incoming guests.

+Lost keys/ locked out of unit: One copy of the unit keys will be provided to guest during their stay. Guest is responsible for their key copy. If guest misplaced keys or gets locked out, guest is responsible of informing host of the unexpected issue. Host can help guest between the hours of 9AM until 6PM Monday-Friday (Weekends are limited) in the case of a lockout, anytime after that, the guest will be responsible for calling a locksmith, on the expense of guest, to open the unit. If key is lost or missing we will charge $50 to replace it.

+Host Availability: Host is available by inbox, text or phone call from 9AM-9PM Monday-Friday/ Saturday & Sundays host will only be available for emergencies (negligence from guest like leaving the keys inside the unit or misplacing keys is NOT an emergency). If guest encounters any issue during their stay at the property please be sure to send message through AirBnb inbox, this is for documentation purposes.
**THE BEST AND PREFERRED METHOD OF COMMUNICATION IS THROUGH THE AIRBNB INBOX FOR DOCUMENTATION PURPOSES ******
**Be mindful of night calling, your host needs their sleep as well.

+Please be mindful of: White towels, blankets, sheets, etc. All items provided will be under inspection after guest leaves. We ask that guests do not use white towels to remove make-up since this is very hard to remove after they are stained with make-up. If we are unable to remove these stains, the guest will be charged the amount that it will cost to replace the towel.

+Emergencies: For EMERGENCIES CALL 911. For apartment emergencies: please call host & send message through Airbnb inbox.


We hope you have read all house rules & trust that you will take care of the space as if it were your own.

This apartment in spacious, beautifully decorated as shown in the photos, and centrally located, although it is directly above a karaoke bar that is really noisy into the wee hours of the night, definitely lively. Although a great apartment, there were some issues upon arrival: housekeeping did not do a thorough job, there were leaks in the bedroom and one corridor, AC remotes were not working, WiFi info was incorrect, and the shutters are painted over so they don't close leaving little privacy in the bedrooms. To be fair, once we were able to reach Amanda, she was upset about the cleaning crew and immediately got to work on all fixing the issues. She also offered us a different property or a credit to stay, which we opted to accept. Overall, this a really great apartment and Amanda was a good host, but probably is not the right place for light sleepers.

Loved this space and the location. Beautiful old architecture with all the updates. We were centrally located in Old San Juan and walking distance from stores, restaurants, pubs, and attractions. Amanda was most accommodating and and we definitely enjoyed our stay here!

This apartment is roomy and gorgeous just like the images and descriptions suggest! My sister and I spent a little less than a week here. It is centrally located in OSJ and very walkable, surrounded by shops, restaurants, and things to do, but not in the middle of "tourist-central" (i.e. the cruise ship ports). There is a grocery and also a convenient store just 2 blocks away. El Morro and Castillo San Cristobal are each less than 15 minute walk from here. When we first arrived, the internet was not working, but Amanda actually discovered this before we did and sent someone to take care of it. It was not able to be resolved that afternoon, but a technician came out the next morning and fixed it. Amanda contacted me ahead of time for both these visits and everyone was very professional and respectful of our time and space. It was not a problem for my sister and me, as we are young and don't have trouble falling asleep, but it is worth noting that this area is quite lively. During the day you can hear the street and pedestrian traffic from inside, and on Friday night we had the pleasure of enjoying a karaoke bar downstairs without actually leaving the apartment! We truly did enjoy all of this and found it quite amusing, but if you are looking for something quiet and/or secluded, this may not be the place for you. All-in-all, this apartment is amazing. I highly recommend it and would love to stay here again if my travels bring me back to OSJ!

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!! This is a really GOOD apartment right in the heart of Old San Juan, but it can be a GREAT apartment with just a few added details. First of all, the place is gorgeous with beautiful high ceilings and pretty well appointed except for a few details. The King BR has a large closet (no hangers, but that was quickly addressed) and a large dresser...great! However, the Queen BR has NO closet, dresser or anywhere to put your suitcases or clothes so they have to go on the floor. (I did pull a bench from the living room into the bedroom for the suitcases but had to live out of them for 4 days). A cheap wardrobe or dresser would easily fix this issue. The beds are VERY COMFY, so they sure got that right! The kitchen is very nice, however, we had 4 frying pans and NO pots! Not sure it had ever been used for cooking! Also, the back bathroom was dirty and has no place to put any personal items. A small table outside the bathroom would easily fix that problem. Also, the washer worked but the dryer didn't, so after washing one load from a 7 day cruise, we couldn't dry them! However, I called Amanda and she quickly came over and gave us access to an upstairs unit dryer, so we were able to dry one load of clothes but had no washer and dryer the remainder of our 4 day stay. And, the TV has no cable but you can load your Netflix account on it to watch TV. With just these few very inexpensive items, this place can be awesome!!! I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone because I know Amanda will see to it that these fews details are addressed. She was VERY helpful. The location is so convenient with the Super Max grocery store directly behind the unit and Marilyn's Bar, famous for their Mojitos, is directly below the unit! Calle Fortaleza (street) is one block so you are walking distance to all the best restaurants and the Govenors Palace is a few blocks away as well as the beautiful ocean. And, the new FREE trolley system in OTSJ is wonderful to conveniently get you around Old Town. You can catch is right next to the Super Max. All in all, we will stay here again for sure!
