We stayed at the apt, it was as described with all the things we needed for a short stay. Very close to the Old San Juan points, shops, restaurants, with great views from the balcony. The owner was great and took care of everything. Will defenitely come back again!

We stayed in Apartment 114 for 9 days in February 2017. The apartment is terrific in every aspect. Olivia, the owner/manager, was wonderful in her communications with us and it was a real pleasure dealing with her. Her father takes care of the apartment and his assistant Kevin, was really helpful upon our arrival. The whole process of booking, arrival...

About the neighborhood
Old San Juan has a very vibrant night life. There are a wide variety of restaurants and bars to choose from which stay open relatively late. Some streets in Old San Juan tend to be noisy because of this, but La Puntilla is located on a quiet, securely guarded dead-end street which allows for restful nights.

Other city beaches such as Condado Beach, Ocean Park and Isla Verde are about a 15 minute drive and are also accessible by bus.

Enjoy Puerto Rico's bounty of natural wonders all within driving distance of Old San Juan, such as El Yunque National Rain Forest where you will find many hiking trails and waterfalls; Puerto Rico's caves, Las Cuevas de Camuy, one of the largest cave systems in the world (tours are available); and much, much more.
