About annie astor

We are a family of five, with three sons. We all grew up in Puerto Rico and as such, enjoy tropical weather, and specially the beach.

annie astor purchased this apartment in 2012

Why annie astor chose Puerto Rico

My husband and I acquired this property because this is the beach where we used to enjoy when we were teenagers. This specific spot used to be known as ' El Alambique', most people our age still remember this!. When we saw this beautiful new building we fell in love with it, and decided to acquire it for enjoyment as a second home, when not in rental.

What makes this apartment unique

Close, close proximity to this fantastic beach!! Only 27 units in the building, which gives the property an intimate boutique hotel feel. Modern building, newest construction in Isla Verde, tastefully designed, common areas are beautiful, especially the rooftop terrace with its infinity style Jacuzzi/pool overlooking the beach. Private assigned parking

near lobby door, with beeper access, so, no going around looking for an available spot like in larger, more populated rental condos.

Stunning modern luxury beach front Sub Penthouse on Isla Verde Beach
average rating of 4.9 based on 20 reviews

Great for family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Spacious, tastefully decorated apartment with a great view of the beach from a most pleasant balcony. The place is generally well equipped for a family group on a beach vacation. The building is quiet, secure, and just steps away from the beach, pharmacies, convenience stores, restaurants, etc. We enjoyed two restful weeks with our children and would consider renting the apartment again in the future. That said, there were a few things that came up short for a property of this caliber. The internet connection was virtually non-existent despite the owner's best efforts to tend to the matter. There was no electricity in any of the outlets in the two hall bedrooms. The lights in the hall bathroom would go off and on intermittently, even after the owner had an electrician correct the issue with the hallway lights. While the apartment was generally clean, remotes for the ac and tvs were grimy, as well as the door handles and edges throughout the apartment. In terms of the building, proper elevator maintenance is sorely needed. Upon our arrival only one of the two elevators worked. The remaining one stopped working the morning of our departure, which meant we had to haul our luggage down nine flights of stairs.

Wonderful Second Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in this condo and once again we had a great experience. The location is perfect, about 1/2 a block from the beach and the view from the condo is incredible (Tartak street and 3 single story houses along the beach allow an almost complete view of the beach/ocean). We love that a nice breeze will blow through during the day when the patio doors are open. Annie added a second table on the deck (great since we were 3 adults and 3 kids, we could all sit out on the patio for meals). She also added 3 body boards which our 2 older kids loved using every day to ride the great waves at the beach. Highly recommend this condo for anyone visiting Isla Verde

Super condo and great location

  • 5 of 5

Very secure, really clean and the balcony was great for the view and morning coffee. Close to everything and was nice to just walk a couple minutes from the beach for lunch. Anne was great to work with and I strongly recommend the unit. Will surely return and we will surely use owner suggestions on other units if our needs require a change of unit

Magnificent Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 rented this beautiful condo right off the beach in late August. The property has everything you need to feel right at home. The rooms were spacious with lovely décor. We especially loved the roof top terrace infinity Jacuzzi and the exquisite beach views from the living room balcony. The condo is centrally located near great restaurants, and stores. Everything, including public transportation is within walking distance. The building is very secured, quiet and safe. Overall, I'd describe this property as excellent and a wonderful place to stay. Our family which includes two teenagers had a blast!! Thank you, Annie for welcoming us to your paradise.

Stunning modern apartment!!!

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a fabulous week-long stay in San Juan? Well look no further. A group of 5 of us rented this luxurious condo right off the beach in late July. It had everything you could ask for as far as location to restaurants and local attractions. Of course you can see that on the map though. The property had great views and was extremely comfortable. Everyone in our party was very pleased. It felt like a real home away from home. Highly recommend this property. Gracias Annie!

Best Family Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

This review is a little late (we stayed here over the Easter Holiday) but I did not want to miss giving this condo the wonderful review that it deserves. The condo is everything that it claims to be. All the rooms were beautiful, the view was beautiful, the ocean breezes were wonderful, it was only a few yards from the beach and the beach was fantastic. There were stores and great restaurants within walking distance. The building is very secure and very quiet (it really is). Five of us stayed in the condo but it could have comfortable slept more. My family and I had the best vacation ever. It didn't matter if we went out sight seeing, visiting relatives or if we just stayed in. Some family members that live in PR come for a visit and they absolutely loved the place. If you have the opportunity to stay here, do it!! You will not regret it. My family and I are already planning to come back and stay here again next year (when I turn 50). I can't wait. Thank you Anne!

Isla Verde Beach
Car: not necessary

Our new sub penthouse is located in the most important beach in the San Juan Metropolitan area, Isla Verde Beach, same beach where the San Juan Resort and Casino, the Intercontinental, the Ritz Carlton and the Water Club hotels are located. The apartment is 30 yards from the beach, in Tartak Street, just off Isla Verde Avenue, at the Beach. It is walking distance to restaurants of all types, from fast foods to casual dining and regular dining. Also very close to shops, casinos and clubs at all the major hotels in the area. A 10 minute drive places you in another important tourist area of Condado, and a 15 minute drive puts you in historic Old San Juan, with its beautiful old colonial structures and plazas. Important attractions in Old San Juan include El Morro and San Cristobal forts, Paseo de la Princesa, La Fortaleza, and Cristo Street. Old San Juan, Condado and Isla Verde beach are a must if you come to Puerto RIco. In addition, longer day trips include, El Yunque rain forest, (45 minute ride east), Luquillo Beach with a stop in the typical food stands, (50 minutes east), and the Camuy Caverns, about one hour drive west. I recommend a car, even though it is not absolutely necessary if you plan to stay mainly in Isla Verde. The apartment has an assigned parking, with beeper access.
