About Nora Bertucci

Retired public relations professional. Owner of 6 rental apartments in Marbella.

Nora Bertucci purchased this condo in 2003

Why Nora Bertucci chose Puerto Rico

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.

Awful vacation....

  • 2 of 5

The ac leaked all over the condo the very first night. I called Nora and she sent her maintenance man. He told us it was fixed, but continued to leak. I spent more time cleaning water off the floor, washing and drying towels. The condo was so HOT. Nora, finally moved us 4 days later to another condo....Never even offered anything for the inconvenience.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that this renter was so upset. They arrived on Wednesday, October 28. Called me late that night to report the air conditioner was leaking. I called my caretaker who scheduled the air conditioner repair person for the following morning (Thursday). The renters were told they did not have to wait for them as my caretaker would take care of it as well as clean up the towels and water. The repairperson cleaned it out and reported it fixed. Again that night it was leaking again. Again, I had the repair person and caretaker come the next morning (Friday). The repair person tried to find the problem but reported that it would require taking the entire unit apart, which was a big job and would make quite a mess. I called the renters that night and told them I was sorry, that I did not expect them to have to endure this and offered to move them the next morning (Saturday) to another apartment for the remainder of their trip (5 more days). My caretaker met them on Saturday and moved them to the next apartment. I received no complaints from them after the move and assumed all was well. In spite that this is a new unit, it did take my repair person two days to complete the job. I always respond immediately to any problems that my tenants inform me of. If the problem is something I can control, I arrange to have it taken care of as soon as possible. If it is out of my control (utility company or building malfunction) I communicate with the proper authority and report back to my renters what can or cannot be expected. If I have an alternative available (another apartment that is not experiencing the difficulty) I offer it to the tenant. I have offered this renter a discount on a future rental as compensation for their difficulty.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great except there was not enough toilet paper, trash bags and paper towels. I had to buy all three of these items. I'm not sure if maybe they were just a little short on these items during our stay or if this is how it is done every time. I recommend this condo but make sure they have ample quantities of these necessary items.

Great vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a week in Puerto Rico in July, loved the condo,views are amazing any time a day or night, well stocked,clean and quiet.I would read very closely Nora's suggestions as far as dining.Very close to everything you need,restaurants, shops, gift shops, grocery stores. The only thing if you want to explore Puerto Rico I would suggest renting a car which is conveniently across a street at Charlie's Car rental. Highly recommend to visit old San Juan, both castles, and if you want to visit one of the best beaches in the world go to Flamenco beach. It is Culebra island, breath taking views!!!!

Overall 5 stars!!!!
