About Nora Bertucci

I own 6 apartments in condominium Marbella del Caribe. I take excellent care of them, along with my caretaker, Esperanza. I travel to Puerto Rico every month from New York and stay in a different condo each time so that I can make sure they are all in excellent condition and are fully equipped and everything is in good condition. I have a reputation in and around Marbella as having the best apartments. I take great pride in these apartments and always want to make sure they are as advertised (in fact most people say that they exceed expectations.

Nora Bertucci purchased this condo in 1990

Why Nora Bertucci chose Puerto Rico

I've been going to Puerto Rico since 1968. I've stayed in many condos and hotels along the Isla Verde and Condado Tourist areas. I find Condominium Marbella del Caribe to be the best, by far. In fact, I've owned an apartment in another condo/hotel, but sold it so I could have all of my units in Condominium Marbella because they are the best kept and the staff are always friendly and helpful.

What makes this condo unique

1. A quick flight from mainland U.S.

2. Part of the U.S. so no worries about foreign government, currency, etc. and no passport needed from the U.S.

3. Beautiful weather every day of the year. Average temp is 87 in the summer and 82 in the winter.

4. Clean and comfortable apartments that are well kept and updated often.

5. Isla Verde Beach is the most beautiful beach in San Juan and it is right out the back door. In addition, this location offers something for everyone...whether it be a quite vacation, or one with exciting night life, or one that offers wonderful tourists attractions, this condo is for you.

Consistently beautiful, well maintained condo

  • 5 of 5

We have rented from Nora for 15 years or more. I have always been impressed by her condos, and we have stayed in several of them. Beautifully decorated, immaculately clean...the oceanfront view is breathtaking. The beach is beautiful, where umbrellas and chairs are rentable on a daily basis and there are several little beachfront restaurants within walking distance. We have traveled to PR for the past 20 years and have always found the island people to be warm and welcoming. We always rent a car as my husband is a golfer and enjoys the island courses. You won't be disappointed with this rental. It is perfect!

Best Surprise EVER!!

  • 5 of 5

We chose to stay at one of Nora's Marbella Condos when we surprised our two boys with a 9-day trip to Puerto Rico this September. We stayed in the 15th floor unit at Marbella Oeste. The first thing I remember, upon opening the door was having our minds BLOWN by that SPECTACULAR VIEW of the ocean!! You enter the apartment and are immediately facing the balcony - overlooking all that beautiful blue... it's just gorgeous. I cannot tell you how many times the boys told us throughout our stay that this was "the BEST SURPRISE EVER!".

The condo was well appointed. Everything looks exactly as it does in the photos, and everything was in good working order. The property was clean and well maintained. We were perfectly comfortable in our home-away from home while we explored the island. The water in the pool downstairs was always so warm - even at night. It was just so relaxing and peaceful. We spent the evenings swimming at that pool even after spending all day on the beach. The Intercontinental Hotel is close by on the beach, and their drinks and snacks were a little pricey - but really good. We rented jet skis on the beach - a short walk from the Intercontinental. That was "totally awesome!" (My kids' review), and well worth the price.

La Espana Bakery is about a 5 minute drive from the Condos - find them! The coffee was perfect, the bread was delicious, the food is spectacular and the Horchata de Chufa is super refreshing!

Nora is responsive to all emails from her tenants within 24 hours. She was easy to work with and made sure our trip went perfectly. She really does attend to the details.

I have no problem recommending Nora and her condos at Marbella for your next vacation in Puerto Rico.

Best VRBO/Homeaway ever

  • 5 of 5

Nora's 2bd, 2 ba, 15th floor condo in the Marbella Oueste was prefection. Super clean, pretty and well-stocked. The process for getting in and out was so smooth. Nora herself was lovely to deal with. Can not wait to return. My family has been using VRBO/HomeAway for at least ten years and Nora's provided the best experience we have ever had. And we usually have good experiences so that says a lot.

THANK YOU, NORA. See you/your place soon!

Best beach condo

  • 5 of 5

Beach view is BEAUTIFUL! Location and convenience of included parking and nearby supermarket and Walgreens is great when traveling with kids. Condo unit was very clean, nicely decorated and had tons of towels! Fully equipped kitchen. Owner- Nora makes the entire rental process seamless with prompt email correspondence and detailed instructions about keys, etc. Love this unit! Will definitely rent from Nora again for my yearly trips back to Puerto Rico!

Wonderful and Safe

  • 4 of 5

We spent spring break in Puerto Rico. This condo was a good fit for our family including teenage girls. As pictured, the beach was clean and the water was a brilliant turquoise color. Accessing the beach included THREE (3) secured doors/gates, which seemed like complete overkill, but it certainly gives visitors a safe feeling. The condo was updated and clean, with an direct view of the beach/ocean. At night you could hear the crashing waves, so leave your sound machine at home! Typically when renting, we stock up at a local grocery store. This trip was short, so we easily found the basics across the street at Walgreens. The breakfast restaurants directly across the street were fantastic with fair prices. Taxi rides to/from (each way): 1) the the airport were less than $20 and 2) to Old San Juan Area were $22. Lastly, Nora was over the top helpful and accommodating, including making special arrangements to insure we could check-in following a late flight arrival. She even found us on the beach the next afternoon to make a personal introduction. On a funny note, we certainly enjoyed meeting Nora's husband with one exception - he's a diehard NY Mets Fan. Go Kansas City Royals - 2015 World Champions! Last thoughts - good condo, good beach, good owners! Skip the dinky hotel room and rent here!
