Great Location in Condado

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in this lovely apartment. The view from the balcony was magnificent. The apartment was well equipped for us. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was nice. While the kitchen does not offer a full oven (there is a small appliance counter top oven available), we were able to manage quite well with the stove top and microwave. And there are so many great restaurants in the area we also enjoyed.

Our hosts were easy to work with and their housekeeper met us when we checked in to give us the keys and show us where to park. She also met us when we checked out so handing over the keys to her was simple.

The apartment has air conditioning but we never even turned it on. When the doors are open to the balcony, the breeze from the ocean was all we needed.

We felt this apartment was a good value for the area as there are many high priced hotels along this street. We felt safe walking around. There is some street noise from traffic and people but it did not bother us much.

If you are planning to visit San Juan, this is a great location. The bus stop to Old San Juan is just across the street from the apartment (bus fare is 75 cents each way). There are beaches within walking distance plus many shops and restaurants.

Local experience while on vacay!

  • 3 of 5

The view was beautiful and the owners were great. Maria was very responsive and gave 110 percent effort to ensure we had a great experience. Great location in Condado. Transportation was easy to access. Great places to eat near by e.g. Pinky's, Waikki etc. and there was a Casino within walking distance. Walmart wasn't too far either but take a taxi. Apt. had parking if you want to rent a car. Also La Placita (sp) great hang out spot. Nicer beach in walking distance. The reason for 3 star review was b/c there were bugs in apt. Per the owner there was an exterminator hired but for some reason there were still bugs in kitchen. So that made us extremely uncomfortable and we ate out more than planned. We contacted owner and sent pics to hopefully fix this issue. Maria was apologetic and stated this was first time this was mentioned. Also, desk chair in bedroom was really worn and old. We didn't feel comfortable sitting in chair. However, everything else seemed new. LBNL, bring coins for washer and dryer. We washed before leaving to be sure bugs weren't coming home with us. Oh finally, we appreciated early arrival and late departure.

Owner's Response: Wow, this review is a real surprise! Our apartment is a well-kept and managed property. If this indeed did occur, (and I have serious doubts about this), it clearly was an isolated incident. The building management routinely (every month) checks and fumigates all of the apartments and common areas of the building. This apartment is occupied year-round, has been listed and rented through Homeaway/VRBO for over 4 years, and we have NEVER received any complaints about "bugs" in the kitchen or elsewhere! Interestingly this guest complained about the alleged "bugs" in the kitchen after the 3rd day of the stay, and still found it OK to stay there in the apartment AND ask for a late check-out (which she was granted)! Also very telling was the report of the exterminator (who was called by us to inspect the property), and advised that he found NO evidence of any bugs in the apartment! Maybe the so-called "kitchen bugs" traveled into our apartment with the guest? In her shopping bags, grocery bags, etc..? If I were in a bug-infested apartment (as this guest makes it sound, since "it made her extremely uncomfortable and she had to eat out more frequently than planned"), I would certainly NOT have stayed in the apartment, and most certainly NOT have asked for a late check-out!! This story makes no sense at all. As a side note, this guest also made an issue about a desk chair that she describes as "really worn and old"..and further stated that they "didn't feel comfortable sitting on the chair. ALL of the furniture in this apartment is brand new, (except of course, for this desk chair--that belongs to a student that periodically rents the apartment): there is a new leather sectional couch in the living room, wooden modern bedroom set with a large leather ottoman, a new outdoor wicker pub set and an outdoor wicker conversation set in the balcony. The bedroom has a large leather ottoman as well as the bedroom set, which offers PLENTY of sitting space, if needed. It seems like this guest looked mighty hard to find something wrong with our apartment...sounds petty and a review made bad faith to me. Thankfully the experiences of other guests have been very different and pleasant at our apartment.

Beautiful views. Beautiful stay.

  • 5 of 5

For the price you won't find a better one bedroom apt with such and extraordinary view and access to all that is Condado. The apt has all the amenities we desired and the view alone is worth the price. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the balcony watching the waves roll in and feeling the cool breeze.

This was our best stay yet in San Juan and we've been coming here for 30 years.

Nice condo, great location, fine amenities

  • 4 of 5

Perfectly located, if the Urban setting of Condado is what you're looking for. Great Ocean view and beaches within walking distance. Good selection of eateries close by. Excellent bath fixtures and good Kitchen appliances. Great wifi and TV was ample though a DVD player would have come in handy on a night or two. Only drawbacks were the bedding and the lack of lighting which a visit to the Mall upon arrival addressed well enough. Overall great stay!

Great place

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice condo. The view from the balcony is absolutely spectacular. It's location is perfect. It is close to restaurants and shops and the beaches and you could also walk to old San Juan in about 45 minutes. Also it was nice to have a parking spot when we rented a car. We stayed for almost a full month. In the listing of amenities, it states there is an oven but there is only a toaster oven. This was actually adequate to my surprise, although my preference would have been for a full size oven. The patio door did not lock but was not a problem . We loved our stay here and would stay again.

July 17 to 24, 2011

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was as advertised, very convenient to both the Condado area and by bus to Old San Juan. The apartment itself was nice and clean and the pictures were true representations of the apartment and it's furnishings. On the days that were cooler, we were able to open the sliding doors all the way and enjoy the ocean breeze. Trying to sleep with the windows open is not a good idea because Ashford Avenue is a very busy street and the traffic noise can be heard long into the early morning. The only two complaints are that although a dvd was advertised, one was not available and the sliding doors to the balcony did not lock. If you plan on using the bus system, bus stops are about 50 feet from the apartment, but the buses do not run on a schedule. I would recommend this apartment to others who are planning on visiting San Juan.

Owner's Response: Richard, feedback from guests are very helpful not only to propective guests but also to us, as the hosts/owners. They sometimes provide us with information that we otherwise might miss while routinely inspecting our apartment. We have since repaired the lock on the glass sliding door and replaced the DVD, (which was damaged by a prior guest). It was a pleasure hosting Richard during his stay at our apartment and we hope to see him back soon!
