My partner and I travel extensively and routinely use VRBO when we do. We like to give honest and constructive feedback to help others who are considering the location and the accomodations.
This unit is located in the Condado area of San Juan, in the "tourist district". It has been many years since I had visited Condado and I was somewhat surprised by the number of dilapidated and shuttered buildings and stores in the area. Maybe it's the result of the recession, but it wasn't the vibrant Condado that I remembered from previous visits. There are a lot of good restaurants in the area and everything is within walking distance. We felt safe walking at night.
The building where this unit is located is across the street from the beach, but has great views of both Condado Bay and the ocean, though there is a hotel in front of the building that blocks some of the ocean view. There is no swimming pool, which would be nice after a day at the beach. The building is secure, almost alarmingly so. When you get off the elevators on the 8th floor, most of the doors have security "cages" around them, giving the impression that you are entering a lock-down facility. Our "cage" didn't lock, nor did we feel the need to use it, though. The door had two locks on it, but the handset lock was inoperable. Thus, we only used the deadbolt.
The apartment itself is exactly as described and pictured. It's small, but very nicely decorated and furnished. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was well-equipped. Everything was spotless. The only suggestion that we can make to improve the unit would be to furnish bath soap, small bottles of shampoo and conditioner, laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid, etc. You can certainly buy these once you get there, but you have to leave them due to airline travel regulations.
Wi-Fi is shared with another unit owned by Anthony. It was "spotty" in the bedroom and was out completely for a couple of days while we were there. It wasn't a big deal to us, but may be to someone who needs to do some work while they are on vacation.
Anthony (the owner) was great to deal with. He responded very quickly. Maritza, the property manager, is a gem. She picked us up at the airport, took us to the grocery store on the way to the apartment, and took us back to the airport at 6:15 am on the day we left. We loved her!
All-in-all, we would highly recommend this unit if we decided to vacation in the Condado area again.
