About Anthony and Debbie Colalillo

I have been traveling to Condado since I was a young boy. I fell in love with the beaches, food and people. There are so many fun things to visit and do that it is impossible to get bored.

Anthony and Debbie Colalillo purchased this condo in 2011

Why Anthony and Debbie Colalillo chose Condado

The views are simply spectacular wherever you are in the apartment. There are water views everywhere and the location is right in the middle of Condado with easy access to all.

What makes this condo unique

It is all about the views!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Anthony,



I had the BEST time! Thank you for everything. Your places were beautiful, and the location couldn’t be beat.



Also, Maritza was incredible to deal with. She is AWESOME!



THANK YOU AGAIN!...I will definitely look for availability whenever I have the opportunity to visit again (which I hope is soon); as well as recommend your places, to my friends.



Best wishes,

TOM

Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5
The view of the ocean from the balcony is incredible. The condo itself has many upgrades and overall is very comfortable and well furnished. Maritza the property manager is so nice and helpful. She called the day before we arrived and offered to pick us up at the airport. She also showed us several places nearby to eat and where not to go. There are lots of restaurants within very close walking distance, as well as a sandy beach, casino, and snorkeling. I would recommend renting a car for a day- go to the rainforest, explore a little! Overall, I am glad we stayed here versus the very pricey resorts. The only negative I can think of is no pool in the building - but the view and proximity to the beach made up for it. Have already recommended this condo to friends and will again.

It's All True!

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.

Owner's Response: It is possible that your week may have been a bit quieter than is typical, however Condado remains a vibrant tourist destination with beautiful beaches and lots to see and do. My wife and I travel there a few times a year and continue to enjoy the many great restaurants (including Yantar in our building) along with the bars and casinos. I do agree that the recession has hit PR too, but I cannot think of anywhere that was not affected. More importantly, there has been noteworthy investment in Condado lately. This includes the purchase of La Concha (2 blocks away) and the Condado Vanderbilt hotel (just diagonal). So there are significant investment $’s already being spent in the area. But you are right, there are some buildings closed. They are the old Regency Hotel and one or two surrounding buildings that have been foreclosed on. It is important to note that these buildings are on the far west end of the Ashford Ave strip and are a good 6 or 7 blocks away and not right around the corner.



The gates or what you called cages are actually standard in most buildings in Puerto Rico. They are there specifically to allow for air to flow through the apartments. Many individuals open their balcony door to allow for the sea breeze to enter and by opening the front door and closing the gate allows for proper air circulation. Personally, I prefer a/c in both summer and winter months. But many do not use the a/c’s during the winter. In New York, we have screen doors that serve the same purpose.



Personal hygiene items are personal in nature. So while we could furnish these items, we find that most people want to use their favorite products only.

Perfect week!

  • 5 of 5
The condo is exactly as described and was spotless when we arrived. It is very comfortable with a nice layout and terrific views of the lagoon and ocean. The location is super convenient--short walk to the beach, restaurants, and shopping, as well as being a short bus ride or taxi to Old San Juan. You don't need a car here, although we rented one for just a few days in order to visit El Yunque national forest (amazing), and then to see the southern part of the island.

Maritza really made arrival and departure stress-free by getting us to and from the airport. There is a charge, but it's way less than you would pay for a taxi.

One tip--beware of the shady taxi drivers. They don't run the meters and seem to just pick a random (high) dollar amount, so ask how much before you get in.

Overall, it was just an awesome week and if we visit Puerto Rico again we would definitely try to stay here.

This apt has many positive features. Both Anthony (owner) and Maritza (manager) provided excellent customer service. The apt is very clean and comfortable and the appliances are in good condition. The views of the lagoon are spectacular! The balcony is also plus, though the view of the ocean is partially obstructed by a building. The location is prime--near hotels, shops, restaurants, parks, and the beach. Though the apt does not include parking, Maritza helped us find a spot for $15 per day. We would definitely stay here again!

This is a wonderful clean, bright, and breezy one bedroom condo, with incredible views to the beach, lagoon, and distant view of the Port of San Juan where you see the cruise ships. It’s situated right across the street from the beach with easy access to the beach. There’s a nice balcony to relax in while taking in those great views, and enjoying a cup of coffee (or tea) in the morning, or a glass of wine in the evening. The owner, Anthony, is a pleasure to deal with as well as Maritza, who is his onsite manager. If you need a lift to the condo from the airport, you can arrange to have Maritza pick you up from the airport for less than what a cab would charge (and she’ll do it with open arms, too!). She’ll even drop you off at a supermarket to pick up whatever items will be needed during your stay, as well as recommend restaurants in the area. However, if you desire to eat in, there is a very nice kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances that is fully stocked. The condo is convenient to everything, located in the heart of the Condado area, with easy walk to a variety of great restaurants, boutiques and shopping. There’s a Starbucks, Ben and Jerry’s and Walgreens nearby as well, and great hotels, including La Concha, the Condado Vanderbilt, the Marriott, and the Condado Plaza Hilton. For the short time we were there, we ate at some nice restaurants such as Ropa Vieja, Oceania, Orozco’s, and La Perla (located at La Concha). All I can say is that my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Anthony’s place. We wanted a nice accommodation in the Condado to help celebrate my birthday without breaking the bank…and this condo hit the spot…as it was perfect in so many ways! So, thank you, Anthony and Maritza…for your warm and great hospitality. God willing, WE’LL BE BACK!
