More than just another vacation rental!
I offer a fully hosted experience in a historic house with three suites/museum/gallery in San Juan's vibrant Santurce Arts District.
On arrival, I'll meet you for check-in & take you on an Arts District tour including Plaza del Mercado.
My office for hotel/tourism consulting is onsite - so I'm here all day for any recommendations or assistance.
If you appreciate art, culture, music & history in a local neighborhood, this may perfect for you!
The casita suite is at the back of the ground floor of our house in the Santurce section of San Juan - the center of San Juan's Arts & Culture District.
Guests use the main entrance and reception gallery to the house, but you have a private locked gate to your casita's exterior courtyard. From the semi-covered 'gazebo' courtyard, you enter your bedroom/ensuite private bath on one side and your ’sunken kitchen’ with a sit-up bar/counter on the other.
The bedroom has a king size bed, flat-panel cable TV, Free Wi-Fi Internet, air conditioning, ceiling fan and closet area. The ensuite private bathroom has a sink, toilet and shower (no bathtub). Clean sheets and towels are provided on arrival.
The casita has a semi-open "sunken" kitchen (sink, gas stove, full refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee maker, electric kettle, blender, toaster, rice maker/steamer).
All guests enter the house through the same gate and front door. Please make sure to always double-check the front door and the front gate by pulling it with your hand to make sure that it is securely locked.
You'll enter the lobby and have access to beach towels/chairs, suntan lotions, yoga mats, bug stuff, umbrellas, tourist info/guides and our coffee/tea bar.
Follow the garden passage to the right and you'll find your courtyard gate.
NOTE: The guest casita does not have an enclosed 'living area'. The bedroom and kitchen open to a private courtyard with 'gazebo-style' covering that keeps light rain away and provides shade during the day. However, when it rains heavily, the courtyard does get wet - so you may get wet going from the bedroom to the kitchen. You should not leave computers, papers or anything in the courtyard that may get wet, since we can have short showers anytime in the tropics. (See photos for reference).
NATURE ALERT: The house has a very open design that encourages open doors and windows. There may be small lizards in the courtyard (we like them - they're cute and they eat mosquitoes). Small birds and hummingbirds are common. If you're lucky, you'll hear a 'coqui' tree frog singing outside your window til about midnight. Mosquitoes blow in when the wind comes from the lagoons during rainy weather (we provide spay and have screens on the bedroom doors/windows) and the fan in the kitchen usually keeps them away.
