Great vacation home in Isla Verde

  • 5 of 5

From Carmen's warm greeting to our departure a month later, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Isla Verde. The apartment was spotless and had everything we needed to make it our temporary home. A short block away from the beautiful Isla Verde beach, you'll have a hard time going anywhere else. Beach chairs/towels/some beach toys are provided and vendors beach-side will also rent chairs and umbrellas. Food/drink available either from vendors or from three restaurants right across the street from the beach. The Pueblo supermarket has everything you will need to stock the kitchen and that's only a few blocks away. A nicely-equipped Walgreen's is down the street. If you're in the mood to go out for dinner, there are many restaurants w/in easy walking distance, including several fast food chains. We especially liked Basilia's, Lupi's and for surprisingly good Italian takeout, Pasta to Go, in the strip mall across the street. The bus stop to Old San Juan is a few steps away. Charlie's Car Rental is also a few steps away. No surprises in the apartment. Everything worked. The bed was very comfortable and our guest had positive things to say about the sofa bed. The WiFi is reliable. The TV is equipped with cable, but we brought along our Roku to add streaming capabilities. We hated to leave and hope to be back next year. Thanks, Carmen!

Nice Location!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice location! Carmen was very polite and was there to greet us. I was there on a destination wedding and the condo fitted perfectly my needs. It's just a short walk to the beach. I needed an ironing board and iron which was not available in the unit and Carmen immediately provided it the very next day. The kitchen had main cooking and serving items, as well as dish washing detergent and paper towels. There was salt and pepper and a few other groceries. The swimming pool was closed because of repairs on all the balconies above the pool. Since, I was not there on vacation, it didn't bother me. They said, it would be several months to get the balconies repaired before the pool would be opened again. So, if interested in having a pool, you might want to check to see if the pool has re-opened. Right by the beach, there are a couple of bars (Third Base and El Alhambique), which serve very good food and have a nice atmosphere. Overall, I had a great experience.

Great place to stay in Isla Verde!

  • 5 of 5

Just a short block to the beach, too! The condo is clean, comfortable, and felt like home; everything we needed was right there. Very safe neighborhood, even late at night. Carmen was so helpful with restaurant recommendations, directions to markets, and bus info, and the security staff was willing to answer questions as well. The T5 bus to Old San Juan is on Isla Verde Ave, or arrange an El Yunque tour to pick you up at one of the much more expensive resorts nearby. Walk a few blocks to the west, and you're in a much less touristy neighborhood (if that's your style). Or, just relax on the beach. There are beach chairs and a cooler waiting for you in the condo :)
