This 1st floor apartment is a couple of cobblestone steps from Castle San Cristobal, an incredible view of the sea and all the magic of Old San Juan. If you want to live like a local, visit the sites, eat and hang-out like we do, this is the place!

Thank you to all the guests that have booked a massage session with my sister! It's been amazing being able to add relaxation and wellness to the experience of my guests. Peace and Vitamin Sea!

Interaction with guests

This is an anti-mosquito and mosquito prevention-friendly apartment. I have screens on all windows and I have mosquito repellent as well as mosquito killer spray available.

Other things to note

Prices are final and non-negotiable.

Check-ins between 9pm and 6am can do a Self Check-In or be greeted in person. The second option has an extra charge of $25 that must be paid upon arrival.

If there are extra guests, before booking please notify me how many guests and nights they'll be staying that way I can provide sufficient linens and towels. There is a $15 fee per extra guest, per night. The futon doubles as a "sofabed" for the two extra guests. If no more than two guests are booking and one wants to sleep in the sofa, please make sure to notify me before booking so I can provide an extra sheet cover for the futon.

My sister is a massage therapist. Whether it's to relax or contour your figure, she can provide the wellness that you need from the privacy of the loft.

Just like the description, great place, probably cosy for four people but great for two. Lovely location ideal for Old San Juan, caring and friendly host. Flexible on timings. Would thoroughly recommend.

Viviana's place was very convenient to walk anywhere in Old San Juan. A lively bar and restaurant scene is just nearby and the forts are a two minute and 10 minute walk away. The space is quite comfortable and has everything you need to feel right at home for your stay. We would stay again.

Fantastic location! Close to everything in Old San Juan but not in the middle of it. Quiet neighborhood. There is construction going on a couple doors down at the moment but honestly we did not hear it in the mornings. We don't recommend this for tall or large people! The bathroom and bedroom area are a bit small; okay for most but maybe not for larger people. Viviana was easily reachable through Airbnb app and prompt with her responses. She was friendly and answered all of our questions. Apartment is in need of a deep clean but it's not dirty or disgusting in any way.

Viviana and her place had made our stay in Puerto Rico perfect. Great place, clean, well-decorated, safe and friendly neighbourhood, plus, unbeatable location. It's only 5mins walk to the sea and the great restaurants just in the corner. Viviana's place had everything we need and other surprises that we didn't expected to have. She even had a shopping cart prepared for us which really saved the labor the time with our grocery shopping. The most most important thing is that, Viviana is such an amazing person not only as a host but in the way which we felt like close friends. She always responded in a minute and the reply were always in great detail and the answers are always considerable. We can tell that she really cares about her guests. This is not my first airbnb experience but this would be my first review as a guest. I really very fortune to have the chance to tell you all how great Viviana is.

Hi Linda, it was truly a pleasure having you and your friends stay at my apartment. You are a wonderful person and I cannot thank you enough. I am grateful to have met you even if it was via written communication. I got a sense that you are a genuine and thoughtful person- you have a great heart. I wish you so many wonderful things in this life and hope to meet you one day in person. Thank you so much for everything Linda! :)

Viviana is a very friendly host and is very accommodating. Her place is very quaint and in a nice area. The only complaint I had was the recent construction next to the place, it made it hard to navigate to her place and made for a couple unexpected wake up calls from jackhammers.

I love to travel and share my experiences so I know how important it is for my guests to feel safe and have a great time. I have a great group of friends to hang out with, a grandmother that cooks insane Puerto Rican food, and a cat & dog combo (Tomás and Spock).
