About Maureen A Bush

I was born and raised in NJ. In 2006 our youngest of 5 children left our home to attend College. My husband and I were avid boaters and decided to move full time to Hilton Head Island, SC. We spend the winters in Miami Beach aboard Turangalila. In the summer time, our boat is docked nearby our home in Hilton Head. We have always loved Puerto Rico and for many years, it was the only place I looked forward to getting away to. Now, we spend a lot less time in the Caribbean. Too much to see...too little time!

Maureen A Bush purchased this condo in 1991

Why Maureen A Bush chose Isla Verde

My husband and I purchased this fabulous condo so that we could take family vacations, be guaranteed warm weather and all be together. For many years, we travelled with our 5 children and reserved 3 hotel rooms in resort areas. Our children were so excited to be in a 'hotel' they never wanted to leave the room. It wasn't fun eating all of our meals out in restaurants. Once we made the decision to purchase Puerto Rico, our family trips have been wonderful memories. As the children grew older, married and had babies of their own, we have started another tradition, enjoying our condo with them and my grandchildren. We are serious boaters and now spend most of our non-working time on the water. We decided to share our apartment in Puerto Rico with others who will appreciate the beauty of the island as much as we once did. For now, renting it short-term to many people has given me a lot of satisfaction. I love this place and its great to know that I can always come back to it.

What makes this condo unique

I will always love the beauty of the island. Puerto Rico offers the most diversity of any of the Caribbean islands. From touring the rain-forest, spending a day exploring the Forts of Old San Juan, experiencing eco-tours on bioluminescent bays, visiting beautiful beaches all over the island, swinging off ropes into the deep waters below the waterfalls, accepting the challenge of viewing the petroglyphs at El hippie Pool and La Canoa Falls, to fine dining, fancy shopping, dancing the nights away, gambling in the Casino's, sky-diving etc. There is so much or so little to do. Whatever suits you is all you need to have the most wonderful vacation!

MY DREAM VACATION THAT BECAME A REALITY

  • 4 of 5
IT WAS AMAZING! THE VIEWS WERE INCREDIBLE. THE BUILDING VERY CLEAN & THE STAFF & OTHER TENANTS/RENTERS FRIENDLY. MY KIDS & I HAD A GREAT TIME HERE ENJOYING THE BEACH & POOL, OUR WALKS THROUGH OUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD. IN WALKING DISTANCE TO SO MAY PLACES. LOVED THAT THE KITCHEN WAS EQUIPPED WITH AN ASSORTMENT OF UTENSILS & OTHER USEFUL ITEMS, & LETS NOT FORGET THE WASHER, DRYER, & DISH WASHER.
MY KIDS & I DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE & WERE DEFINITELY GOING BACK.

Everything we wanted!

  • 5 of 5
My husband (50) and I (44) rented this apartment for 2 weeks and it was the best decision we made. What was important for us: Clean!, underground parking (you will appreciate a cool car vs. steaming hot one under the PR sun), ocean front/views, Wi-Fi, walking distance to everything (I cannot walk much, so I am talking about a block or 2 max), 2 bedrooms (love my hubby, but not when he snores ;o), full kitchen, outdoor space to enjoy the ocean breeze, A/C, pool, cable/satellite, security, did I mention clean? YES, it delivered everything we wanted.

I lived in Isla Verde years ago and this location is the most "central" that you can get. Having the ATM and the biggest Walgreens I have ever seen across the street was awesome (they have EVERYTHING including food).

One note: This apartment is well maintained and clean, but if you are looking for granite countertops/marble floors and luxury...this is not your pick, you will pay 3 times more for half the space of this one, without the ocean views. I call this one, the smart choice ;o)

We will be back as often as we can! We loved it!

Everything you will want and more

  • 5 of 5
If your looking for a safe and beautiful location, look no further. From the moment my family of 4 walked in we felt like this place was home. This condo is very well maintained. The view from the 19th floor is outstanding. With 2 1/2 baths and 2 bedrooms and two levels, there was more than enough room for everyone. Then add touches like chairs for the beach, bags for beach gear, free wifi, cable tv, 24 hr. security, ocean breezes, books, magazines, sun tan lotion, and a view you will want to take home. We even met the neighbors who were more than friendly. Situated in a nice area of Isle Verde, restaurants are plentiful. We rented a car across the street from Charlie's Car Rental and felt safe parking in the gated garage. A grocery store is a short walk and we cooked breakfast and dinner. Having a washer and dryer was great. A nice easy drive to the BioBay in Fajardo. We booked the tour with BioIsland as they use an electric boat to get to the lagoon. It is a 1 mile trek thru mangroves in the pitch black. Other operators there use kayaks. El Yunque we opted to have Charlie's Custom Tours pick us up. We also had a nice lunch, and do try the mofongo. You will not be disappointed with this property!

Listing was accurate

  • 4 of 5
We are two couples who get together every year. I was in charge of finding us a place to stay. This was perfect for us. We like to walk and enjoyed a morning walk every morning on the beach, then back to the condo to sit on the balcony for coffee and breakfast. Walgreens and grocery were well within Walking distance and plenty of places to eat. We were easily accessible to sightseeing that we wanted to do. The condo was clean and had all the amenities we needed. Yes, we would recommend this to others. We ended each day playing cards and having a glass of wine on the balcony. We love to be able to get together and just relax and be ourselves. This place was perfect for us. Everyone we encountered were so,friendly and helpful.

Everything you need for a great beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We travel to PR annually for a 2 week vacation. This two level condo was a perfect choice for our family of 4. The downstairs living area opens via a double glass slider to an over-sized balcony with an amazing view of the Isla Verde beach. Sea breezes blow steadily throughout the day, so that even in the summer heat we did not need the central AC.

The amenities as described in the listing are spot on, but there were little touches that we really appreciated such as beach chairs, a cooler, basketball, and an ice maker (which kept up with our demands!). Both the master bedroom and the guest bedroom have individual air-conditioners which we used to cool the rooms at night. The guest room air-conditioner struggled, but the owners assures me it will soon be replaced (you can always turn on the central AC).

The location can't be beat. Marbella sits right in the middle of the Isla Verde beach crescent. Walk out the first floor and you're there. There's a big pool and basketball court if you're not in the mood for the beach. A Walgreens right across Isla Verde Ave has everything from eggs to wine to sunscreen. The casinos are a short walk away and there are many restaurants. (Try Nagoya for some truly outstanding sushi - they're open till 4:00 AM!)

Hang quietly at the beach or try your hand at kite boarding, para-sailing, or jet skiing - it's all right there. A little further away from Isla Verde, be sure to hike in El Yunque National Rainforest Park, ride horses and go karts at Carabali, or speed along the Rainforest Zipline (we've done them all and highly recommend).

After a long (and often tiring) day of fun, we really enjoyed coming back to our condo. It is big enough that everyone can find a quiet place to unwind. The two levels really make this a reality. There are two parking spots under the building immediately adjacent to the elevator. The building has a guard posted at the entrance 24/7 - so you can feel safe and secure.

The Marbella complex (2 buildings) is showing its age a bit. But I have to say it is kept clean and tidy, as is this condo. You would be hard pressed to find a better location and a nicer unit for rent. We'll be back!

Beautiful Breath-Taking Views, Relaxing Atmosphere

  • 5 of 5
We knew immediately upon entering the unit, this was the perfect place to spend our much needed vacation. The breeze coming off the beach was so spectacular as soon as we opened the triple sliding door and the breath-taking views of the beach and ocean were spectacular. This unit was even nicer than we had seen on line, or ever could have imagined. Everything was clean, neat and yet comfortable. Aside from the new countertops and cabinet doors, the appliances were dated, but everything was in perfect working condition. All brand new ceiling fans and all the lighting fixtures throughout the unit were recently replaced and this gave a warm and clean appearance. The parking spot in the garage in the building was fantastic. First spot after exiting the elevator. We traveled to Old San Juan on a rainy afternoon and visited the Forts, had lunch and shopped on the cobblestone streets of the city. Also, at night we headed down to Condado to do some gambling and had some great dinners. Most of the time, we chose to hang out at our "home" sip wine at night on the balcony and each day started with breakfast on the terrace with our PuertoRican espresso coffee and fruit. Locally, we walked to 2 very good restaurants. One at the Ritz Carlton (1/4 mile) Il Mulino, it was excellent, we gambled there and enjoyed our walk back listening to the coquis chirping and the birds singing in the late hours of midnight. A must see is the El San Juan Lobby Bar on a Saturday night. There is salsa and meringue dancing in the lobby, filled with excitement, people watching and we enjoyed a cocktail from one of the 3 bars located inside the lobby. Be prepared to put on a pretty dress and show yourself off or just sit and enjoy the music, culture and people of Isla Verde!
We cannot wait to go back to Puerto Rico next year. We will make this an annual trip and definitely stay at Marbella Este in the same beautiful penthouse.
