About annie astor

We are a family of five, mom, dad and three sons. We grew up coming to Isla Verde beach every Sunday, especially in the area from Marbella del Caribe to El San Juan Resort. It was the place to be on week ends, so we have fond memories of the area. We still love it here, and now share it with our renters.

annie astor purchased this apartment in 2015

Why annie astor chose Puerto Rico

This property has the great advantage that it is right on the beach, while at the same time, having other amenities, as a great huge pool, basketball court, playgrounds etc. You just need to get on your beach clothes and take the elevator down, and a few steps further on, you are on the beach, while being is a very safe condo, with 24/7 security, and assigned parking space.

At the same time, if you feel like exploring the island it is a good place to stay, since it is very close to Highway 66, that goes to the East, where most of the attractions like Rainforest and bio bay tours are.

What makes this apartment unique

The minute I saw this apartment I fell in love because of the stunning views from the 18th floor....I knew it needed some work but the basic ingredient of a great location, was there. After the renovation work, I think the apartment is a true gem, and I wouldn't mind if I get the chance to use it myself every now and then....

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week here and at the end really did not want to leave! Gorgeous view from the 18th floor the minute you walk in the front door! The condo is updated very nicely. Very clean. TV is nice. AC is cold. Washer & dryer nice. Parking is great and very conveniently located close to the elevator. Very good location. Annie is very nice and took care of us wonderfully. We highly recommend this place and we can't wait to go back!

Great Condo, amazing views and great location!

  • 3 of 5

This was our families first time to Puerto Rico and this property was a great location to stay while there. The Lobby was nice and clean, however, the hallway from the elevator to the condo was not as nice as we thought it would be. The lady that met us to give us the keys to the condo and give us all the information was really nice and very helpful. The condo was nice and clean inside and the view from the 18th floor was amazing! The property was very secure, almost to a fault because getting to and from the beach was a bit of a pain because the key would only let one person through the circular gate at a time. The negatives about the property were that they were doing construction (drilling, scraping the floor, etc.) on the floor above us every morning around 6am and we had taken our snorkel gear out of our bag to air out and left it in the back of the parking spot where we parked and some of it got stolen.

Owner's Response: Hi Stacia, I am glad you liked our condo, however I think three stars is not warranted. You mention the condo was great, amazing view, secure, etc. There are things that we as owners do not control, and one is the right of another apartment owner to do renovation work in their apartment. However, it is very rare that they were doing work at 6 AM because it is not allowed, and the building is very strict about it. I know because my condo was recently remodeled. The working hours are 9 to 5. I wish you had reported this the day it was happening, because security at the condo would have gone there and would have prohibited them to do work. As to the lost snorkeling gear, my parking spot is in the main part/thoroughfare of the garage, where a lot of people pass daily. If you put your equipment out of the car, on the floor, someone may have thought it was discarded. None of the situations have anything to do with the apartment itself!! Best regards, Anne

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

Brought my family for a 6 night stay. Anne was wonderful to work with during the entire process. The views are terrific. Right on beautiful Isla Verde Beach. Minutes from Old San Juan and about 40 minute ride to the rainforest. Highly recommended.

Loved this condo

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this property. The Condo was beautiful, well appointed, clean, beautiful views and great location. Annie and her staff took great care to make our vacation one to remember. From the balcony you can see the entire beach and hotels on the strip. There is a view of the ocean from each bedroom . The kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms were clean and updated. The living room was spectacular with sliding glass doors that open on to the balcony, with amazing views of the ocean as you walk into the Condo. It was my first time at this Condo, and I don't think I would stay anywhere else. Annie ,the owner ,was very gracious and accommodating. Great place to spend a vacation!!!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was my families first trip to Puerto Rico, and I'm so glad we stayed at this property. The apartment is beautifully remodeled and very comfortable. We loved being on the 18th floor. There are plenty of elevators and they are quick. The view was magnificent! The property is very secure, almost to a fault (the gate to the beach is a circular metal thing that only lets one person through at a time with a key. Difficult to carry beach chairs and coolers through), but I'm sure those precautions are necessary to feel safe and secure, which we did. If you don't want to hassle with carrying chairs, they are inexpensive to rent, but are taken in at 4:30. Annie was great to work with! She met us at the property and showed us everything we needed to know. Isla Verde is a very good area to stay in, with many things close by. Old San Juan and the Castillos are a must, and a good 1/2 day adventure is the zipline/cave rappelling trip at Campo Rico, which is very close by. Our first night we ate at Rest. Toston Caribeno, which is just down the street, and were introduced to Mofongo with chicken and beef, which was delicious and very filling. The thing I am missing the most since being home is the sound of the waves on the beach at night. That is the most relaxing sound in the world, and this is the place to stay if you need to unwind!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your detailed and great comments Marla!!! I am so glad you loved our property and everything that Puerto Rico has to offer. Eating Mofongo is a must if you come here, and I am glad you liked it!!! Hopefully I will see you coming back soon! Best, Annie

Map

Car: not necessary

Our apartment building, Marbella del Caribe, East Tower, is located on the beach in the main strip of famous Isla Verde Avenue, the most sought after tourist area in Puerto Rico. It has the most beautiful turquoise beach which is two miles long, just in our doorstep! You only need to take the elevator down 18 floors and you will be able to enjoy this magnificent beach, surrounded by palm trees and walk on white sand.

Walking distance from our condo, you can find El San Juan Resort and Casino-a Waldorf Astoria Hotel-, the Intercontinental Hotel, the Ritz Carlton Hotel, the Verdanza Hotel, the Embassy Suites Hotel, and the Water Beach Club Hotel. You will find all sorts of restaurants in the area, from all fast food chains to fancy restaurants, you name it and Isla Verde has it. The Isla Verde Beach has a variety of water sports you can practice like parasailing, jet skiing, windsurfing, snorkeling and sailing. You will be within a short cab ride to the areas of Condado, Ocean Park, and Old San Juan. I will give you my own restaurant guide of places to eat in the San Juan Metro area.
