San Juan, Puerto Rico
La Casa Arana was the residence in San Juan of renowned Puerto Rican Painter Alfonso Arana. The first floor apartment was used as guests quarters for artists and friends who visited Arana over the years. The building is located at the heart of the historical sector, next to City Hall and the San Juan Cathedral, down the street from Calle San Sebastián with its restaurants and bars and within walking distance to El Morro, Puerta de San Juan and all the historical and scenic landmarks in Old San Juan.

We stayed with our children (4 and 2 years) for 8 nights at Casa Arana and couldn't have been happier. The place itself is – as other reviewers already stated – gorgeous: an open, spacious apartment that is simply but beautifully furnished in combination with your private secure courtyard surrounded by tropical plants.
