About Santiago Sanchez and Zoraya Herrera

We're 3 of us: Husband, 39, from Spain,Wife, 30, from Puerto Rico, and our 2 years old Daughter.

Santiago Sanchez and Zoraya Herrera purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Santiago Sanchez and Zoraya Herrera chose Puerto Rico

We loved this apartment at the beach, and we just bought it in June 2014.

Since we live in Dubai but we obviously travel a lot to Puerto Rico, we decided to rent it out for short terms, but it's also the place we will end-up moving to :-)

What makes this apartment unique

The sea view is unique and magic. Location is perfect, quiet enough but close to the ¨movement¨.

We loved the beach just downstairs.

We just bought all the furniture, bedding and everything ourselves, thinking on our future home once we move back to Puerto Rico.

That's why we decided to get high quality mattresses etc.

Hopefully it will be our home, your home :-)

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate to write this review as I want to be sure the place is available to us when we return next year, but I did promise Santiago so here goes...Pictures and words cannot fully describe how wonderful this apartment is. As soon as you walk in the door you see and hear the ocean which is literally steps away. The apartment is clean, bright, and fully equipped, including beach chairs. The washer and dryer are a definite dirty laundry to bring home! While there are no private beaches in PR, there rarely was anyone there so it was like having our own private beach to enjoy all day long, a true treat. The building is located in an area which is not filled with tourists and has so many nice restaurants to enjoy within a few blocks. Santiago was helpful from the moment I contacted him requesting info about the apt. He called me a few days before our trip to confirm out arrangements and was available throughout our stay, even had Zoraima bring a new air mattress over when we told him the one there was leaking. Thanks for everything Santiago, you will hear from us again!

An incredible experience

  • 5 of 5

I never leave reviews but this time it left a great footprint.

First, the owner and the local liaison makes sure everything is exactly the way you expect things to be. They go above and beyond to make sure you are happy and well taking care off.

Second, the apartment is so centrally located and walking distance to restaurants and supermarkets. The apartment was very clean and efficient. The breeze that the 12th floor offers you make you turn the A/C off and enjoy the weather.

I have no desire to stay on a hotel, ever again.

Santiago, Zoraima, thanks for everything.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

The view from the balcony was breathtaking. Sitting on the patio each morning listening the waves was such a refreshing way to stay your day. Condo has everything you need, stores are just steps away for groceries and liquor. Very secure and safe building. The condo owners were extremely helpful and always available if needed. There is an indoor parking spot, like everyone says get a small vehicle we had a Kia Rio and had no issues, all of Puerto Rico has small parking spaces.Beach is beautiful and not crowded at this end like on the touristy section. Condo was exceptionally well cleaned when we arrived and the cleaners were cleaning when we checked out and they were cleaning every area of the condo.early and late check out was able to be accommodated due to others leaving and arriving. This is a true gem of a place to stay.

Great ocean views and a nice clean comfortable condo

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week and absolutely loved it! The condo is clean and has everything that you need, including beach chairs and a boogie board

:-) Isla Verde is a wonderful place to stay with some great local restaurants walking distance away

Condo is safe and with parking is an added bonus, our hosts checked up on us on messenger the first couple of days to make sure everything was OK made us feel right at home

Thanks again we love Puerto Rico

Impressive view! The perfect place to stay in SJ

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed there with two friends of mine. One of the two bedroom has an amazing view on the sea. The kitchen and the livingroom are spacious and full furnished. The balcony is simply spectacular. The host is careful and prepared to help you for everything.

Great hosts, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I've been vacationing in Puerto Rico for over 30 years, mostly at one of Isla Verde's beachfront condos. This condo is located at the quiet west-end of arguably the best beach in the San Juan metro area. Hotels, casinos, and nightlife (if you like), are mostly on the east-end of this beautiful, crescent-shaped, mile-long beach. The west end is very quiet and so is the building. A well-stocked supermarket is a very short walk away. The beachfront bar "El Alambique", about a 3/4 mile beach walk east serves excellent seafood - don't be fooled by its look!

The condo was clean and well stocked, and Santiago was available and in communication by email constantly. There was a minor repair that had to be done and he took care of the problem the very next day. I agree with previous reviews in that he is one of the best hosts I've ever seen.

The building does not have a pool, but we didn't miss it. The ocean is literally less than 50 steps away. The kitchen is small, and therefore, it does not have a dishwasher, but that was not a problem. It was well stocked. A coffee table, a second TV, and a sofa that opens into a bed would be great improvements. It comes with 1 underground parking spot - very narrow; careful with minivans! The view from the balcony is spectacular (unobstructed 180 degree ocean view).

I would definitely come back.

Thank you Santiago!
