The Chinese Garden House

This glorious house, with its three koi ponds, waterfall, bridges, and rock formations, is incredibly calming and meditative. The design of the garden produces harmony through its views and concepts, and it creates an infinite space within an enclosed area. This authentic, impeccably maintained Chinese garden and house is a sheer delight. The fish are also very friendly; they look right at you and follow you around the perimeter of the pond.

  • Wedding friendly
  • Parking on the grounds for trailers and cars

The Old San Juan Villa

A stunning fifty-two room mansion. The ancient villa sits high on the Old City’s North Wall with stunning Atlantic Ocean views and breezes. Created by joining six interconnecting townhouses, the villa houses an artist and her life’s work in painting and sculpture. The magnificently decaying stone and plaster walls harken back to a time when pirates looted and pillaged in the Caribbean. The villa features brick patios, antique arches, ausubo beams, private stone nooks, a sunken open-air waterfall pool, and a multitude of sculpted fountains. Nineteen gardens and five active art studios are tucked away between twenty-two beautifully appointed guest rooms. A Venetian-style music room houses a grand piano.
