Nestled in the 500-year-old historic Spanish colonial city of Old San Juan, Villa Laurel is the ideal basecamp to explore Old San Juan’s history, restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. You will love the serenity of this 2 bedroom apartment that has spectacular double doors that open to a private interior patio. The location is ideal for those looking to be close to the action in Old San Juan, located less than a block from the busy nightlife and restaurants of Calle San Sebastian and a short walk from El Morro Spanish fort. It is also just a few steps from the Old San Juan Cathedral. The apartment sleeps 4 adults, has one queen bed in the master bedroom, and a queen bed in the second bedroom, an updated and fully stocked kitchen with 2-person counter space, a living room with flat-screen TV and WIFI, one full bathroom. 


Enter Villa Laurel to an open layout that includes a comfortable living room with a sofa and flat-screen TV, a renovated and fully stocked kitchen with 2-person counter space, and spectacular doors that you can completely open to the private interior patio or leave closed with windows to let in sunlight. The villa has air conditioning and WIFI. The layout makes very efficient use of space and the cathedral ceilings make the area feel much larger. There is one full bathroom; bath and beach towels are included.



The master bedroom is appointed with a queen bed that is outfitted with fresh linens for each stay. The second bedroom has also a queen-size bed. This apartment has a maximum occupancy of 4 guests. There is a ceiling fan and air conditioning in both bedrooms.



Villa Laurel has a simple but modern and recently renovated kitchen with a fridge, microwave, sink, and stove. It is fully stocked with everything you might need for an extended stay. Dinnerware and a small cooking pot set are included.   



Staying in Old San Juan is a truly unique experience filled with charm and character. From Villa Laurel, you can comfortably walk anywhere within Old San Juan. We recommend taking a cab from the airport and using Uber or taxi while you stay at Old San Juan. Renting a car is not necessary unless you are planning on road tripping. This is a truly walkable location with everything you need a short walk away. The apartment does not include parking. Nonetheless, there are convenient parking lots close to the apartment.

There are many things to do in the surrounding areas, here are some of our favorites, all within walking distance:

  • Explore the El Morro Fort. There are daily tours of the fort and the large green areas have spectacular ocean views. Take a tour, have a picnic, and fly a kite. This is a must-do.
  • Explore the iconic Calle San Sebastian nightlife. There is a large assortment of bars on this strip which is a favorite among locals on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
  • Breakfast at “La Bombonera”. This is a Puerto Rican landmark well known for its locally inspired breakfast and pastries.
  • Savor Stuffed Avocado. Healthy and “trendy” spot where you can create your own avocado bowl.
  • Take a stroll around “Paseo La Princesa”, a waterfront walkway which you can start off at El Morro and finish the walk with a rum tasting at Princesa Gastrobar at the end of the trail.



This property does not include parking. If staying within the general San Juan/Metro area, we recommend moving around via Uber. If you decide to rent a car, there are various paid parking garages around Old San Juan – pricing varies as some charge by the hour and others have a flat rate.

Left a review on Airbnb as well. The host (Joselyn) was friendly and kind. Check in was simple. However, sleeping in the unit was a nightmare. The bunk bed full on shakes when you get into it and the top bunk didn’t even have actual sheets beyond
