About Maureen A Bush

I was born and raised in NJ. In 2006 our youngest of 5 children left our home to attend College. My husband and I were avid boaters and decided to move full time to Hilton Head Island, SC. We spend the winters in Miami Beach aboard Turangalila. In the summer time, our boat is docked nearby our home in Hilton Head. We have always loved Puerto Rico and for many years, it was the only place I looked forward to getting away to. Now, we spend a lot less time in the Caribbean. Too much to see...too little time!

Maureen A Bush purchased this condo in 1991

Why Maureen A Bush chose Puerto Rico

My husband and I purchased this fabulous condo so that we could take family vacations, be guaranteed warm weather and all be together. For many years, we travelled with our 5 children and reserved 3 hotel rooms in resort areas. Our children were so excited to be in a 'hotel' they never wanted to leave the room. It wasn't fun eating all of our meals out in restaurants. Once we made the decision to purchase Puerto Rico, our family trips have been wonderful memories. As the children grew older, married and had babies of their own, we have started another tradition, enjoying our condo with them and my grandchildren. We are serious boaters and now spend most of our non-working time on the water. We decided to share our apartment in Puerto Rico with others who will appreciate the beauty of the island as much as we once did. For now, renting it short-term to many people has given me a lot of satisfaction. I love this place and its great to know that I can always come back to it.

What makes this condo unique

I will always love the beauty of the island. Puerto Rico offers the most diversity of any of the Caribbean islands. From touring the rain-forest, spending a day exploring the Forts of Old San Juan, experiencing eco-tours on bioluminescent bays, visiting beautiful beaches all over the island, swinging off ropes into the deep waters below the waterfalls, accepting the challenge of viewing the petroglyphs at El hippie Pool and La Canoa Falls, to fine dining, fancy shopping, dancing the nights away, gambling in the Casino's, sky-diving etc. There is so much or so little to do. Whatever suits you is all you need to have the most wonderful vacation!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Maureen,



I hope all is well. I wrote a review for your condo and I hope you will like it. i've included below.





We had an amazing stay at this condo. The views were priceless and the location was within walking distance to food,casinos, and a 24 hr walgreens. The location was great for driving to some site seeing locations. The door men were friendly and very helpful to us. The unit was very clean and it had many amenities that made the stay feel as if we were visiting a welcoming family home. We loved the swimming pool which ideal for both young and old. There was a small play ground that the children enjoyed. Dealing with the owner was a real pleasure. She communicated with us in timely and pleasant manner. I loved this place and its great relaxing view. The next time i return to Puerto Rico, I would not hesitate to stay here again.



We really enjoyed ourselves and I appreciated and enjoyed dealing with you.





Sincerely,



Luis and Darla.

The Best

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for the perfect vacation. We took our 2 kids with us for Spring Break, and we all had a wonderful time. The condo is very comfortable and is a quick elevator ride to the beach. We used the provided beach chairs and other beach supplies almost every day. If we did not have time for the beach, the pool was very nice, as well.

The condo was fully stocked with kitchen tools and was close to 2 grocery stores. So, we made breakfast every day. It was a luxury to eat on the balcony with the cool breezes every morning. If we did not go out for dinner, also ate on the balcony. We did not use the dining room table once. There is also a pizza shop very close and several restaurants nearby. It is in the center of everything.

The wifi and cable TV were more than adequate to pacify our tired kids. The furnishings were very comfortable, and everything was very clean.

We rented a car and took several day trips: El Yunque, Old San Juan, and Camuy Caves. In and out of the condo was very easy, and the staff/security were very helpful.

Maureen, the owner, was very responsive and takes great care of her condo. You can tell that she wants her renters to feel like guests. She was highly accommodating to our travel plans. I would highly recommend this vacation location. I hope to return soon!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from our stay in Isla Verde and had a great time. The apartment is very comfortable and a perfect location on the beach. The pool looked nice but we just used the beach, and were happy to have beach chairs available. We used the balcony for morning breakfast and late night wine, beautiful views. There was always a breeze so didn't often use the AC. When we did try the portable AC unit in the master bedroom, it was so loud it made sleeping difficult. So we just opened the windows.

The kitchen is small but fine for us as we just needed the fridge and coffee maker. It was great having the dining table just for our computer use and a place to organize stuff. The bedrooms were plenty big as well as the bathrooms. The large screen TV and WIFI both worked well. A pullout couch added another sleeping area for our guest.

The security staff at the front desk were super nice and helpful. There are great restaurants in the area, especially at the WBC and El San Juan hotel up the street, all within walking distance. Very convenient having a market to walk to and Walgreens open 24 hours across the street. We rented a car from Charlie's across the street for a couple of days to explore the island. But taxis are easy to get, too.The area seemed very safe at night.

This was our second trip to the island. We drove to Ponce, beautiful drive but not much going on in that town. We also did the mini boat snorkeling trip in Fajardo which was great, the guys running that trip were so much fun. Old San Juan has a trolley that goes all around town, and you can hop off and on for free. Great way to see that area.

Oh, and by the way, we didn't even see a mosquito, so didn't worry about Zika!

Great condo, great location

  • 5 of 5

I would echo the previous highly positive reviews. We have rented several places in San Juan and this one is far and away the best. Maureen takes exceptional care of it--plus she is responsive and easy to work with. The furnishings are of high quality. Wi-Fi and cable are strong. Kitchen is well equipped. The view from the balcony is stunning. We usually rent a car for our stays but there was no need in this case. Many restaurants are close by (try Zest in the San Juan Beach Club hotel right behind the condo). A supermarket is only a ten minute walk and a Walgreens is across the street. Taxis were easy to get for the times we wanted to visit further away. The Puerto Rico Museum of Art on de Diego Avenue is worth a trip--it's open late on Wednesdays and is free that day.

Breathtaking Isla Verde Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes its the fabulous rental, sometimes its the ease of booking and a owner dedicated in making each booking experience the best yet. The previous reviews say it all. You will have everything you need to prepare meals, go to beach with beach chairs, cooler, toys etc. High speed wifi and direct tv channels. This property is exceptionally clean and well cared for...not your usual rental flip. Maureen takes great pride in her penthouse, fresh paint and new furnishings, beautiful artwork, unusual for a rental, really make you feel like you're totally welcome in her home. We arrived ahead of planned book in time, and Maureen was quick to make arrangements for early entry. The prime parking space underground near the elevators was a big bonus. 24 hr security, and the beach within footsteps of the property gate. The balcony is probably 2 1/2 times bigger than most, with comfortable seating a a perfect view of the runners on the beach, kite boarders and of course swimmers. I have rented a few units on Isla Verde and this one truly is paradise. Thanks again Maureen, Justin & Sarah were thrilled, as we imagined we all would be....hope to return one day....Joyce & Jean (Calgary, AB)

Excellent Penthouse Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The photos and property description are accurate. Stunning views from the large balcony, and a great location in the center of Isla Verde's beach area. I won't list all of the features of the apartment and it's location, as they are well described in previous reviews by other renters - however, after those reviews were written, Maureen has installed new furniture and tv's that we really enjoyed.

We stayed a month in the apartment, and used all of the facilities, including cooking a number of dinners in the unit. The Internet speed was good enough to use Skype video to communicate with our family. The apartment became our home away from home!

We used taxis' to visit the malls and some San Juan area restaurants, but found we could use the bus service to ride into Old San Juan - a unique and inexpensive way to travel.

Maureen has a super apartment, and she is great to work with. We have already booked a return trip next winter.

A great choice!

  • 5 of 5

Having lived in San Juan for 5 years, my husband and I were excited to take our 2 kids to PR to show them around. We knew this was the stretch of beach we wanted to be on. This condo is lovely, the view can't be beat! Everything we needed to be able to have a relaxing place to spread out and eat in if we chose...The owner, Maureen, responded quickly to all emails and was more than accommodating when last minute complications arose with our travel itinerary. I would highly recommend, and would choose this property again if we go back!
