**LISTING DESCRIPTION**

Take a 5 minute taxi from the airport and you have arrived to paradise. This amazing condo is in the exclusive hotel/condo ESJ Towers in Isla Verde. The unit has 2 bedrooms and 1.5bathrooms making it very comfortable. Each bedroom has 2 full size beds and the living room has a queen size sleeper giving you a total of 5 beds. Pool access is a breeze because the unit is on the same floor as the pool entrance (the unit is not ground level). The pool is large and has plenty of chairs to kick back and relax in the sun. If you need a cocktail don’t worry there is a bar at the pool where you can order drinks and have them charged to your room.

The beach is literally just a few steps away. The beach’s gentle surf and wide beach stretch out for several miles. On the beach you can enjoy a variety of activities such as jet skis, kite surfing, offshore surfing, parasailing, banana boat rides, sailing and much more.

Within ESJ Towers there are several additional amenities. The gym and sauna is available for those of you that want to work out or like to relax in the steamy sauna. For additional entertainment there is a game room, card room, ping pong table and pool tables. A restaurant, bar and convenience store are also inside the property on the lobby floor.

Everything you need to make yourself at home is inside the unit. All you need to do is come and stay with us.

So what about the area?

Isla Verde Beach is to Puerto Rico’s San Juan what Ipanema Beach is to Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro. It is stylish, upscale, and the place to be seen. It is also considered one of the best municipal beaches in San Juan. Meaning Green Island in Spanish, Isla Verde draws beach-lovers from all over for many desirable high points, including plenty of fashionable, upscale hotels, a thriving beachfront spilling over with restaurants and cafes, and a hip, urban vibe. The crescent shape and bustling atmosphere take center stage in this exciting area of Puerto Rico’s capital city.

Begin putting together a picture of Playa de Isla Verde San Juan with a long, curving beach topped with light, tan-colored sand on the northeast coast. Back it by tall palms that nicely blend the line of San Juan hotels behind into a more natural scene. Add all these elements together and you’ve got an ideal, urban beach filled with a mix of trendy folks, tourists, and families enjoying the best beach activities and warm Puerto Rico sun and water. Adjacent to Isla Verde Beach is Carolina Beach, offering some more amenities and services.

There are plenty of things to do along the shores of Isla Verde Beach. There is a popular beach shop offering banana boat rides, parasailing, and Hobie Cat and wave runner rentals. The rentals can be taken out by the hour or by half and full days. Diving off the main shore is also a possibility and there are several dive shops that can take you out on the water. Often dive operators suggest diving off shores located 30 to 45 minutes from Isla Verde due to Isla Verde’s low visibility. Isla Verde is still a good place to arrange a trip and if staying in the vicinity, dive tours take you to the best, nearby spots toward the east where visibility increases to between 20 and 50 feet. Cayo Diablo, part of an island chain on the east coast, is one of the most popular sites.

The gentle surf and wide beach (over 200 feet in width) are the most welcoming aspects of Isla Verde Beach. Snorkeling is a fun pursuit and though visibility isn’t magnificent, it’s still possible to have a look at small marine creatures and corals living in the surrounding reef. Water skiing, jet skiing, parasailing, and body boarding are other available and popular activities. Many of the shops and hotels lining the beach host special events and offer water sports and other beach activities. Note that holidays, weekends, and the summer months can get extremely busy, which means prior arrangements for many activities are necessary.

All along the strip of beach there are endless condos, hotels, and other high rises along with entertainment centers, and plenty of eateries to choose between, from upscale to budget. There are also numerous nightclubs, bars and chilled-out lounges around Isla Verde Beach, many near the shore to accommodate visitors which means nightlife is especially lively. There are two big-name casinos situated in Playa de isla Verde San Juan as well, and these are a big draw for tourists as several excellent area spas.

About Owner

So who am I? Well my name is Ricardo and I love the beach, the ocean, and traveling. When I travel I look for places where I can find unique locations where I can try a variety of different adventures. Either it be under water scuba diving ship wrecks and admiring life inside our ocean or exploring the wilderness and finding caves and ruins.

But then again all vacations don’t have to be a adventure. Sometimes I just like to sit back and relax, try new places to eat and enjoy myself.

Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why Owner chose Puerto Rico

There are many reasons I purchased this property. For the past 4 years I started traveling more frequently domestically and internationally and one of the very few places I repeat in my travels is Puerto Rico.The island offers a wide array of places to see, things to do, and food to fall in love with. I call it home.

What makes this condo unique

The property is located in very desirable location. When I’m in fu town the first day I kick back in the pool or on the beach and just relax. As the day comes to an end the night life begins. I walk a few steps and I’m in the Old San Juan Hotel. This place has casinos, restaurants, and some of the best night life in the metropolitan area. You really don’t have to go too far to have a good time.

Can't beat this location

  • 5 of 5

My family went to Puerto Rico for the first time and rented in the ESJ Towers building. The location was everything we expected as no car is needed, the building is beach front, and everything is in walking distance. The condo that was rented had everything we needed and was comfortable. The building staff was also nice.

Best vacation experience !!!

  • 4 of 5

Everything worked out well. Usually something always goes wrong when I go on vacation but this time I have zero complaints. The staff helped me coordinate my trip just as I wanted, and this unit was much better than I expected. Thanks for everything!

ESJ AZUL!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Took my family out to PR for the 4th of July. Typically when we come to PR we stay at ESJ and this time it wasn't any different. We like the beach and facilities the building offers. This was the first time renting this property and we had a good experience. The 2 bedroom condo had everything we need. One thing we really liked was the property has a access code to get in so we didn't have to worry about losing any keys at the beach as it's happened to use before in past rentals. One surprise we did get was when we arrived the lobby was remodeled since the last time we went to ESJ. I recommend this property to those looking for a 2 bedroom condo.

TOTAL SCAM!!!!!!!! Very unprofessional, RENTERS BEWARE!

  • 1 of 5

On June 16th I arrive to the beautiful Island of Puerto Rico, we get to the ESJ Towers and began to check in. My brother was to land in 2 hours so we wanted to get everything ready, this is their first visit. We even went shopping and bought $160 worth of groceries and cocktails. The front desk was very courteous and helpful. The porter took our luggage and groceries and guided us to our condo. We began to use the security code given to us in the lease agreement and it did not work. The porter even tried helping and nothing. I went to the front desk and I was told because it is a private owner, they did not have any numbers nor emails to reach the owners. I contacted VRBO and was advised the reservation had been cancelled. We received no notification from the owner and had no contact numbers nor emails to reach them. On the electronic signature form we signed, it did have an email that confirmed our signature and the owners email . We emailed him frantically asking him to reach us and he said the reservations were cancelled, with no notice, and began to refund our money at that time. WE HAD NO PLACE TO STAY AND MY BROTHER LANDED NOT KNOWING THIS HORRIBLE SITUATION. DO NOT RENT FROM THIS OWNER, BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!

Owner's Response: Yes, this reservation was cancelled as the post states. What is not accurate in the post is that the refund took place on the date of the arrival and the guest was not notified. This is not true as the reservation was cancelled weeks before the arrival date. The refund and notification was also sent out during that time. When a reservation is cancelled in the VRBO site a email notification is automatically sent from VRBO site to the guest indicating the reservation was cancelled; this is standard site functionality. I'm really glad the guest states they contacted VRBO and I want to high light this fact because VRBO does a great job in removing fraudulent listings that try to SCAM people out of their money. As you can see this is not the case here as you wouldn't be reading this post. Additionally you can see on my profile I've been on VRBO since 2011. I understand the experience was very undesirable for the guest but the fact that they have a bad email filter or technical difficulties doesn't make me a scammer as the guest wants you to believe. The fact this listing is still online is a testament to the validity of this property and the other guest reviews. One more thing I would like to point out is all our guest have our contact information. This guest was no different as he mentioned in the post he had our rental agreement and access code which is sent to our guest directly by us. The front desk also has my phone number as they call me anytime anything happens in my unit. My point is the guest has posted a number of false statements. The facts are the reservation was cancelled weeks in advance, notification was sent out, refunds where issues when the reservation was cancelled and no money was wrongfully withheld.

Nice Location and very spacious

  • 3 of 5

the owner was very helpful and great to work with. condo served very well as a base point. we went rented a car and went out to luquillo, ponce, and zip lines at todo verde. it met our needs well. very close to airport and the esj towers were very nice. it was within walking distance to several good restaurants.wifi worked great. the cons were- loud music til midnight Monday night in lobby(normal not something that bothers us but we needed up in AM at5:30), condo was dated in kitchen with need of a little repair to cabinets, the bedrooms didn't have blankets/only sheets(not a big deal but thought worth noting), gate to beach locks for no exit around 9(I'm sure it's for our safety but prevents night strolls on beach). overall we really enjoyed our stay in PR and would suggest anyone to experience it. this condo was a good value based on location but could use a little updating in a few areas.

Cozy Appartment

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for several days. We had an incredible time! The owner was very friendly and helpful throughout the booking process. He also recommended to us a few great restaurants nearby because we were on the hunt for Mofongo and couldn't find any. The hotel itself has been remodeled and the condo is very nice. We booked his place because he has a kitchen and we wanted to cook, but we ended up not cooking since we ate out the entire trip. The condo was very clean.

The hotel is located in the middle of everything, we didn't rent a car. We took the bus for 75 cents towards San Juan and the bus stop was pretty much right in front of the hotel. We walked down the street to Mi Casita for breakfast every morning (it's absolutely delicious) and often had drinks and lunch at Edith's Cafe which is also within walking distance.

The pool area was great as it had lots of sun bathing chairs and a Jacuzzi. We spent a good amount of time here and on the beach. At the pool they have towels and you can also buy food and beverages which was nice.

The beach is very long. If you like going on walks this is a great beach to walk on. On the beach we found a variety of different vendors that sold food and beverages to renting beach chairs and jet skis. We ended up doing the banana boat and parasailing. We really enjoyed the beach and it was clean. You can expect to see a good amount of people on the beach as their are several hotels and condominiums that have direct beach access.

During the trip we also went on the bio bay kayaking tour. This was amazing as the water in the entire bay glows at night. I highly recommend going on this tour. We found out about this tour because in the building lobby their is a concierge desk. We talked to them and they booked everything for us. Very quick and easy.

Overall, we had a wonderful trip. Thanks!
