Our home

Newly remodeled apartment in the fourth floor (no elevator) of a 200 year-old Spanish colonial building in Old San Juan, near Morro and San Cristobal fortresses (UNESCO World Heritage sites). Queen-size bed in bedroom sleeps two, sofa or air mattress in living will sleep a third person or child. Fully air conditioned, although cross ventilation will make it unnecessary. Windows open unto interior patio where tall tamarind tree is home to dozens of chirping little birds that will turn your mornings into a most pleasant reveille. Private bath with shower (no tub). Gourmet kitchen.

Who we are

  1. I am a 52 year old single guy who has a little time to travel and do what I like best: visit the old country Europe and blend among the locals. (I also love NYC!) In that sense I most centainly hate hotels, they are so sterile and cold. Apart from English and Spanish, I speak some Italian and French, enough to 'farmi capire' or 'me faire comprendre'. A non simultaneous exchange is possible since I have somewhere else to go while my home is being accupied. This would be my first home exchange, and I hope something good comes out of it.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Old San Juan is the oldest city in North America and has been restored and converted into a nearly museum-like environment. But the city is plenty alive, with lots of night spots that cater mainly to the young and the "in crowd". Old San Juan is definitely "the place" for gourmet dining, with more than 20 first class haute cuisine restaurants situated mostly in the southernmost streets, near the cruiseship piers and the shopping district. My building, on the other hand, is situated in the purely residential part of this old city, meaning that the area is very tranquil. Old San Juan is completely walkable; in fact, the use of a car is not recommended. There is a public transportation hub within walking distance from my home, and a taxi station equally near. A short public bus ride (75 cents) will take you to the Condado strip and its famous beaches.
