Awesome condo!!

  • 5 of 5

This is an AWESOME condo and we definitely recommend it!! From the start of the booking process to the end of our trip, Sonia was readily available to answer any questions and was very helpful. The moment you step in the condo you are taken away by the beautiful view of the ocean and refreshed by the ocean breeze. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony every chance we could! Great place for coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. The condo was fully stocked with everything you could possibly think of. We took the beach chairs and towels that were supplied down to the beach. The condo is right next to the beach with only a garden area in between. We rented a car and the garage was very secure with automatic door opener for easy access. The building itself was very secure and well maintained. There are laundry facilities available which was very convenient for our 4 day stay as we were boarding a cruise ship after our stay. When we go back to Puerto Rico we will definitely stay at this beautiful condo!

Perfect location w/ perfect view

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a 4 night stay in this great 1 bdr condo. From the minute you walk in the door you are overtaken by the full beach / ocean view as well as the openness and cleanliness of the condo. I have stayed in this area many times and have always been very happy with the location. Sonia went above and beyond . From our initial contact to my check out - Sonia was always attentive and readily available. Within 24 hours of my arrival she sent me a text to make sure everything was to my liking - which it was! The building is very nice , clean , modern and SAFE. Sonia has managed to think of everything one might need for their stay from cork screws to beach towels and even a small cooler - it's all there and clean . With the Walgreens directly across the street and the beach immediately in front of you , this is the perfect location. It takes less than 5 min to walk to anything you might want to do. There are local bars on the beach, casinos, steak and sushi restaurants , Starbucks and even Burger King and Pizza Hut if u r so inclined . Less than $20 cab ride from airport - we didn't feel the need for a car. On the beach there are chairs and umbrellas for rent - very economical and the vendors are very helpful . I would highly recommend this location and Sonia and her condo get 5 stars from me .

Owner's Response: Dear Richard, Thank you for the kind and detailed review. Undeniably the location of our condo and the view is one of the reasons we bought it for our own piece of paradise when we visit the island, however we take great pride in keeping it very clean, well-stocked, and prepared with the traveler in mind so someone like you and the many other guests we host have a pleasant stay from the moment they stepped in the door and all throughout! So glad that you enjoyed the stay and would be our pleasure to hosts you many more times in future travels again! Sonia and Felix

All we hoped for & more!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing location! The view is breath-taking! The beach access is immediately outside their door with nicely landscaped garden and a large beautiful pool. Every activity you might wish is either within walking distance or a quick cab ride away. This was a perfect trip made even better because of the wonderful owners. Their communication & response was speedy and informative. They provide a detailed handbook with all the area info you could possibly need. We would definitely will come back again and already referred a friend to Sonia and Felix's rental.

Wow - great view, great location, great condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend to celebrate our anniversary and we couldn't be more pleased we chose this place. When we arrived there was a bottle of wine and flowers waiting for us. Balcony view is absolutely spectacular, and proximity to ocean provides for a great breeze. Condo is very clean and well-appointed, very secure, steps away from the beach, walking distance to many restaurants & bars, car rental places, casinos, ~5 min cab ride from airport. It is a great base of operations for activities in San Juan, and exploring the island. We rented a car from Enterprise down the street, and drove to Fajardo for a kayak tour of the biobay; Rain Forest Zipline; hiking around El Yunque (definitely go to the peak--it's worth the hike), all of which were within ~1 - 1.5 hr drive of condo. Sonia made the process very straightforward, from booking to check-out, and responded promptly to any questions I had along the way. After returning home, my deposit was returned very quickly. I would definitely book this condo again in a second!

I hope you can come visit us once more in future travels and know you have a place in our condo to welcome you back once again!

First off, Sonia was great to work with and the unit and view were exactly as pictured. Highly recommend this property for its ease of access to the beach, secure location and proximity to restaurants/shops. We looked at many different units for rent, this one was the best. Very happy we decided on it. Stop thinking and book it now. :)

Super Great View

  • 5 of 5

The owners provided us with a bottle of Sangria and two souvenir shot glasses. The condo was very clean and well equipped. Virtually everything was available for your vacation needs. We did bring two extra rolls of toilet paper and a box of tissues with us, which came in handy.

Isla Verde Beach is arguably the best beach in San Juan. I was vacationing with my 90-year old mother for Mother’s Day. One of the building residents advised us that the regular bus fare is $ .75, it is only $.35 for those 65 years old and free for those 75 years old. No wonder Puerto Rico is bankrupt! Taxis are quite expensive, so it pays to use the buses. There is a bus stop in front of the building that goes to Old San Juan. Take the No. 5 or No. 53 bus. Stay on the bus until it gets to the bus terminal in Old San Juan. From the bus terminal, you can get on a free trolley (tips are appreciated), which will take you around Old San Juan. If you have a life time pass for National Parks, be sure to take it with you to Old San Juan.

Another day, we took the No. 5 bus towards Old San Juan, but got off at Calle Dos Hermanos and walked two short blocks south to La Placita market. We purchased some fresh local fruits and produce. In addition, there are several sidewalk restaurants that serve great local food at reasonable prices.

There is a casino at the El San Juan Hotel about a half mile east of the condo (to the left as you exit the condo). You need to cross the street and go about ½ block west to the bus stop heading east. All you need to do is tell the bus driver where you want to get off and he will accommodate you. One bus driver told us the last bus leaves Old San Juan at 9:30 pm, but we returned about 5 pm. Usually, we only had to wait 5 or 10 minutes for a bus; but once we had to wait about 25 minutes.

As other renters have mentioned, it is somewhat annoying to have to use so many different keys at different access points throughout the building. Although my 90-year old mother had some difficulty using some of the keys, I did become quite proficient at it after a while. It is a little tricky trying to carry two beach chairs while going through the turnstile.

If you are traveling to San Juan, I do not believe you will find a better condo with a better view at a better price than this one. Also, you will not find better owners to work with than Sonia and Felix! I highly recommend this condo.

And did I mention the million dollar view?
