About Nora Bertucci
Retired public relations professional. Owner of 4 rental apartments in Marbella.
Nora Bertucci purchased this Condo in 2003
Why Nora Bertucci chose Isla Verde
I've been going to Puerto Rico since 1968 and have stayed in many hotels and condos. Marbella is by far the best....the cleanest, friendliest and on the best part of the beach. Within walking distance to everything you need.
What makes this Condo unique
For US citizens, there is no passport required, uses US money and post office. Most people speak English. Puerto Rico is a beautiful island with many tourist attractions. It is the perfect vacation for people who want to have an exciting, fun-filled vacation, as well as people who want a quiet, relaxing time.

Great location, great apartment
I have rented apartments previously from Nora. As usual, we were happy with the unit we rented, clean, great location, lots of linens. The unit we rented was the two bedroom, ocean view on the 8th floor. Loved it.
The condo was incredibly clean, nicely equipted kitchen. Plenty of towels and as always, a spectacular view.
Bright, lovely, super clean condo on the beach
Lovely, bright, clean condo right on the beach. The pictures in the listing accurately reflect what the condo actually looks like. The a/c works well and there were no other issues with the condo. Nora and her team are especially attentive to guests' needs and she communicates/follows up well. We will definitely stay at this condo again on our next visit to Puerto Rico!
Perfect better location.
Building and complex are immaculately clean and secure. Beach is phenomenal; overall location convenient for traveling, eating, shopping, etc. Condo was nice and clean.
Marred vacation along with many inconviences
First day we arrived, we checked everything to make sure things were in good working order. Since four of us are deaf, we rely on closed captioning televisions. One of 3 tvs needed to be repaired which was fixed next day. Air conditioning is very cold and cannot be controlled. Either ac has to be turned off or you freeze. At night the condo was rather warm without ac. We had to sleep with blankets. Showering became our problem. The water came on warm then it turned cold. The hot water heater was installed in the middle of our week. We were inconvenienced with plumbers coming in and out of our condo thus dirtying the floors which we had to clean up . On Thursday, cable and Internet went out! They were finally turned back on on Saturday. Nora has tried to correct the problems but we could not enjoy our vacation. We think we should be compensated or refunded some of the money that we had paid for it. Nora even texted us saying that our vacation has been marred. We have not heard anything from her about the appropriated compensation.
It was an unfortunate set of circumstances. My husband offered a credit to them for another visit but they told him they would not be back, so they were not interested in the credit. I was up there everyday with workers trying to right the problems. The first problem with the TV, I was able to fix myself. As soon as they texted me about the TV I went right up and tried to fix it. I determined it was the cable box. I went the very next morning to the cable company to have the box replaced. The morning before they arrived the hot water heater broke so we had it replaced before they arrived. Problem was, it was defective. My repair people were there everyday fixing it. The would get it working and then after they left, it broke again. I then instructed them to replace it with a different kind of new unit. Then the cable was cut by the cable company and therefore there was no service. I called the cable company. They came and said it was the wiring outside that was cut. They would have to send someone else. I insisted that it be repaired immediately, which it was. Regarding the air conditioning, the control is in the air conditioner closet. I would have had my caretaker adjust it but one of the gentlemen told me it was fine and to leave it, which i did. I did acknowledge that it was not an ideal vacation. However, none of it was neglect on my part. I am still willing to offer them a credit for another visit, because I know if they come again they will be happy, as all of my other tenants are.
The condo is lovely.
Very nice condo. On the beach and close to everything.
