Vacation Rentals in San Juan, Puerto Rico

Rene Syler sets sail to the historic and tropical San Juan, Puerto Rico, where Jovany and Big Dave are planning their week-long vacation! With a budget of $5,000 to $6,000 for the stay, they can't wait to see what vacation rental properties Rene has in store!
Colorful and vibrant San Juan is the capital and most populated city in Puerto Rico. Also known as "The Walled City", San Juan is filled with tons of historic sites, plazas, unique shops and one of a kind museums.

San Juan's rich history dates back to 1493, when Christopher Columbus first discovered the island. A few years later, Spanish settlers claimed the territory, but it ultimately became a U.S. colony in 1898.

Puerto Rico is located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. It neighbors the Dominican Republic to the west and the Virgin Islands to the east. The city of San Juan sits on the northeastern tip of the island and is about 76 square miles.

Two nearby shore towns, Old San Juan and Santurce, are perfect for Jovany and Big Dave, who are looking to get away and have some fun in the sun!

This vacation will also double as a family reunion for Jovany, who has relatives living in Puerto Rico. Finally, she'll get to relax in paradise with the people who matter most!

The perfect Sweet Retreat has the following criteria:
  • At least 3 bedrooms
  • Spacious living room/kitchen combo
  • In Old San Juan or neighboring town
With a budget of $5,000  $6,000 for the night, they are ready to get to work!

Cristo Penthouse for Rent:

Located on the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan stands the 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom Cristo Penthouse. At 2,000 square feet, this rental is the largest penthouse in San Juan. Its spacious floor plan and high ceilings make even Big Dave look small! But this property is full of other great features like an open loft area and a couch swing. And its price fits right into their budget at $5,600 a week! Jovany and Big Dave love this place, but are ready to see the next property!

4 Sol for Rent:

Located next to the historic El Morro is the spacious 4 Sol. With 5 bedrooms, 5 and a half bathrooms, and 4,000 square feet, this luxurious gem encompasses top-of-the-line appliances and finishes. And its spectacular rooftop comes with an outdoor grill and a breathtaking 360 view of the city. Perfect for family cookouts! But the budget busting price of $6,825 may scare the couple away.

Casa Cacique for Rent:

In the lavish Ocean Park neighborhood sits the Casa Cacique! With 5 bedrooms, 5 and a half bathrooms, and 4,500 square feet, this rental is the biggest of the three. Here, all bedrooms come with a walk-in closet and private bathroom. The master bedroom even has its own balcony with a shaded cabana! And with a budget at only $4,900 a week, Big Dave is completely sold! But is this property located too far from Old San Juan for Jovany?
