Sabana Abajo Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Our one-bedroom apartment is located on the seventh floor of a modern condominium. It has all the conveniences of home including a washer and dryer in the apartment itself. Every window faces the Isla Verde beach and the Atlantic Ocean which are immediately across Calle Tartak. Although the apartment is air conditioned, you will rarely need it as the ocean breeze keeps the atmosphere most pleasant.

At night, you can watch the cruise ships sail in and out of San Juan harbor. The condominium is conveniently located between the airport and San Juan proper. Both are less than a ten-minute ride away.

Parking is available for one vehicle. Car rentals are conveniently nearby. The parking lot and building are gated and have a modern security system in place. For the gamblers, the Intercontinental and El San Juan hotels are a block away. These hotels also offer fine dining as well as modern casinos.

About Jim and Helene Sumerson

We have been managing rental properties for over thirty years. Our one bedroom apartment in the Racquet club offers all the ammenities of home.

Jim and Helene Sumerson purchased this condo in 1971

Why Jim and Helene Sumerson chose Puerto Rico

The Racquet Club Condominium is directly accross the street from the Isla Verde Beach. Our apartment is on the seventh floor and faces the ocean. The view from all the windows is the Atlantic Ocean and the Isla Verde beach. The Atlantic trade winds keep the apartment breezy and cool but the apartment is fully air conditioned for when the breeze dies down.

What makes this condo unique

Isla Verde is a well known tourist area. Several major hotels and casinos are within waling distance. The airport is a 5 minute drive from our location. The apartment is a one bedroom with a fold out futon in the living room allowing for sleeping arrangements for four people. The apartment has a washer and dryer and a fully equipped kitchen. There is parking for one vehicle in a secured parking garage. Free WIFI is availaable.

If you are looking for more space, we can also offer a newly rennovated two bedroom apartment in the same building. See our VRBO listing #560916

Great apartment, beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this apartment from August 13-17 and it was awesome to wake up to the beautiful views. The apartment has the best location on Isla Verde and is right on the beach with its own private entrance to the beach. There are lots of restaurants (including Mi Casita which is one of our favorites) within a block away and there's a bar and restaurant right underneath the building. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The only minor issue we had with the apartment itself was that the sealing on the refrigerator is broken. We put a chair against the door and it solved the problem for us as a temporary fix.

The only other issue we had was getting the keys to the apartment when we arrived. Jim and Helene's proxy in Puerto Rico did not meet us with the keys as they said they would. We eventually got the situation ironed out and the keys to the apartment. Jim was very responsive before we arrived at the apartment and throughout our key-issue. As I understand it, there is now a permanent fix to the key-problem so no future renters should encounter this problem.

Overall, we had a very relaxing and comfortable time in this apartment and would definitely rent from Jim and Helene again!

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

View was awesome, right off the beach close to so many restaurants, gambling and airport. Room was good size for 4 people. AC worked great, ocean breeze was awesome. Kitchen had everything you needed. Having chairs available was a plus and also the mat to lay out. Washer n Dryer was so convenient. thanks for thinking of the little things. Will be back.

Wow, best apartment ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here from December 31-Jan 6th. This apartment was the best apartment I have rented thus far. I have been a flight attendant for 10 years and have traveled all over. I have been to Puerto Rico 20+ times and this is the best trip I've had. The apartment is located right on the beach and is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy your stay. We walked right to the Pueblo supermarket and bought our coffee and breakfast items. Every morning we woke up to the ocean and it was like being on a cruise ship. We made good use of the washer and dryer, pans, coffee maker, wine opener, wine glasses. This apartment literally had everything you need. Most importantly there is air conditioning in the entire apartment, a very comfortable bed AND GREAT WATER PRESSURE! The transaction was smooth and very enjoyable. Thank you Jim and Helene we will be back soon!

I Stayed here for almost 2 month and it was amazing.

This Condo is on the 7th floor on the best beach in Puerto Rico. The view is amazing, both the bedroom and living room have 8 foot sliding doors and windows facing the water. We would sleep with them open and hear the waves all night... it is so beautiful and relaxing.

I would recommend this condo to anyone you will not be disappointed it is amazing and the owner also has another 2 bedroom condo on the 11th floor that is even better. We rented both and we are renting again at least 4 times a year. Truly a paradise. .. walking distance to restaurants and 24 hour Pharmacy and supermarket.

You have it all with this rental.

Enjoy..... Thanks again Jim

God Bless

Pros and Cons

  • 3 of 5

There are pros and cons to renting this unit:

Pros: Very convenient to the airport and just across the street from the beach. Plenty of room for two people, bed was comfortable and it was great to be able to brew coffee and have a light breakfast without having to be ready to face the world. Parking would have been impossible if not for the parking garage. There were plenty of towels and extra bed linens; every kitchen gadget was there. Loved having the washer and dryer right in the unit along with the dishwasher. The views are wonderful. TVs and Internet were great.

Cons: The loud noise from the bar downstairs made it impossible to get a good night of sleep, the police cars would tap their siren during the day and night, back up alarms on the trucks and garbage pickups during the night didn’t help. We thought we would use the air conditioner in the bedroom to drown out the noise but it made its own set of noises so we were resolved to making do.

The unit was surface clean but needs attention, dust on the chains to the lights, lampshades and baseboard moldings. The fans and air vent in the kitchen is covered in black dust. There were dust bunnies and long black hairs easily seen on the white tile floors. Nothing really dirty but nothing really clean either.

Everyone we dealt with was very nice and this was a last minute rental at a price much lower than the hotels charged.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Unfortunately there is not a lot we can do about street noise. We have passed on your comments regarding cleaning to our agent in Isla Verde and they will address the issue with the cleaning people. We appreciate your comments and we do endeavor to make our guest's stay as comfortable as possible.

A few days away...

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was just what we needed for our stay in PR. The location was amazing; it was close to restaurants, bars, highway access, and of course the beach. The security guards are so nice and very helpful. There is a lot of police presence around outside too. They just hang out keeping the area free of any drama. The apartment was nicely decorated. The kitchen made it easy for us to prepare some meals and save a little $$. Just note that if you plan to use the kitchen you have to bring soap, sponge, etc to wash the dishes. There is a dishwasher in the unit but it was not working when we were there. The only other negative that I have is that the bed was horrible. It's a king size bed so it was a nice size but it felt like we were sleeping on a table. Otherwise this place was cute, just what we needed, and the view just can't be beat. Beautiful PR!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at our apartment and in Puerto Rico. Repairs have been made to our dishwasher and the garbage disposal, which was damaged by a tenant because of improper use, has been replaced. The bed situation has been greatly improved with the addition of a three inch memory foam pad. For our tenants who do rent a car, there is secured parking for one vehicle. Thanks for your suggestions. We hope you can make the trip to Puerto Rico again.
