In addition the entrance to the national Park 'EL Morro' is less than a minutes walk from the property. 3rd This apartment is located directly across from the Puerto Rico Governor's mansion known as 'La Fortaleza' -- The immediate and surrounding area enjoy unparalled security and police vigilance with a small police barracks attached to the executive mansion visible from the front door of the apartment. 4th This apartment is BIG has about 750 sq ft of space . This apartment can accomodate 6 guests.. Guests in excess of 2 are each charged an additional fee of $15.00 per night . The 2nd bedroom is an extension of living room since doors have been removed The apart is unique in the the Old City where the majority of apartments have views of the buildings directly across the street or none at all. From the living room there is an unobstructed beautiful view of the bay and the very small park right in front of the property with a large mahogany tree and several royal palms. . You can actually see the bay from every room except the bathroom since the conversion of a one family dwelling into 3 apartments had to be effected in a straight line room arrangement from the living room to the outdoor patio which is shaded by a mango tree. o There is 1 bedroom with an a/c adjacent to the kitchen and patio which has a queen mattress. There is also a futon in living room in addition to the 2nd bedroom with a full mattress. . The back entrance to El Morro national Park is just 60 yards away. The location is almost a rural setting with pelicans and flocks of parrots if you walk west from the property into the grounds of El Morro National Park - and if you walk east you enter an urban setting just a block up the street.The back entrance to El Morro National Park is less than a minute from the property . . There is wi fi. There is a police barracks attached to the Governor's mansion one block from property. The house is located in the quietest , most peaceful area of Old San Juan. There is a great little restaurant just up the street called Rosa de la Triana and also the patio of the Hotel Convento which is a very nice place for drinks. There is great security on this street since the Governor's mansion is directly across the street from the property. .The nearest trolley stop is at the main plaza 3 blocks from property- 'Plaza de las Armas' . Bus station is about a 15 minute walk. Taxis are just up the st. 24/7 at the Hotel Convento.This is one of the oldest colonial houses in OLD San Juan . More
