Isla Verde guest house description
Best Location! Why choose a tiny studio when you can stay for the same price in a comfortable, beautifully decorated one bedroom surounded by two of the most beautiful beaches in San Juan? This apartment is ON the water, no sideviews or views from afar. The beach is there! The view is breathtaking and the soothing sound of the beach waves keep you company 24/7. Absolutely no traffic! Just waves!! A spectacular sunrise awaits you. Miles of sandy beach surround the apartment. Google 'Punta El Medio', Isla Verde for the exact location. The Isla Verde beach is on one side (where the El San Juan Hotel is), and the more quiet beach of the Ritz Carlton is on the other side. Both beaches are very long and have water sports and chair rentals. So, if you like walking or jogging on the sand, water sports, swimming or just want to enjoy an endless summer view this is the place to stay. The apartment is fully remodeled. Kitchen is fully equipped. Full bathroom with shower. The bedroom has a queen bed and there is 1 full size futon in the living room. Black-out curtains and roll-up shades in rooms for a perfect sleep too. Parking inside gated property. Rate includes cable + high speed wi-fi, too. Book now!
Catch the public bus (very close) and go to Condado and Old San Juan for just .75 cents! Recommended!

- Miles of sandy beach surround the apartment. It is located in 'la punta del medio' or 'Biascoechea' in Isla Verde. The Isla Verde beach is on one side (where the El San Juan Hotel is), and the more quiet beach of the Ritz Carlton is on the other side. Both beaches are very long and have water sports rentals available. We are on a quiet street. Close to everything but far from the traffic and noise of Ave. Isla Verde. Our beachfront is also quiet. The only thing you will hear are the waves... Walking distance from the apartment there are hotels, a Walgreens and lots of restaurants. Pueblo Supermarket is a five minute ride in car away. Next to the apartment there is a nice restaurant with a spectacular view (the same one you will see from the apartment) with a deck where you can relax. Other Activities: boating, kayaking, shelling...moreless

A feast for the eyes
A feast for the eyes
Lovely, lovely, lovely. I am a native puertorrican and had wanted to stay here for a long time. The minute I stepped in the apartment I knew I had made the right decision. I couldn't get enough of the view! And the apartment was cozy, clean and comfortable, and very quiet at night. Having a parking was an added bonus. The owner and the property management were both wonderful. This will now be my new "home" back home. Can't wait to visit it again! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Me & my boyfriend enjoyed our stay very much! The place was just beautiful with a breath taking view of the beach. Also was next door among great hotels along the beach. Very conveniently located & safe to walk around. The manager Arnold was delightful to deal with. Will definetely come back. Highly recommended!

This was the most spectacular place to stay! Comfy and well equipped! Close to everything! I will return as often as possible and stay here again and again if possible! Caretaker was exceptionally helpful and location was close to everything...especially the beautiful beaches!

Nice Views but Not Peaceful
Nice Views but Not Peaceful
Arriving to the condo we were told that it had not been cleaned so we had to stay in a different condo for the first night and then move again the next day when the condo had finally been cleaned. When we finally got to the condo we had booked there were many issues that came up. The cable was not working and we had to call to get it fixed, there was construction going on 2 doors down from where we were staying so trying to sleep in or relax in the condo between 8 and 5 was not possible, there also was water coming in the windows and we had to work to try and get the windows to close properly, and finally we lost power because a transformer blew in the area. We loved the view and the peacefulness that was there in the evenings. In the area there was a lot of great restaurants and lots of beach access but not much else to do. Don't know that this is the area of Puerto Rico that I would recommend people going to unless they just wanted to go to the beach and not have much else in mind to do on their vacation.

Owner response: Dear Rebecca, When younarrived, we had another unit ready for you in the same bldg., on a higher floor and with ocean view, too. An unexpected situation had come up with the Endless Summer unit but we had it ready for you first thing the following morning. I was in touch with you at all times and expressed my apologies countless times for the inconvenience. Arnold took good care of you, too. As soon as you called me about the cable situation I resolved it. You gave me the cable company's support number that was on the TV screen when you turned it on and I called. The instructions were simple : to unplug the box and plug it back and it worked! Right now as I'm writing I don't have internet or cable service in my home. It's supposed to be back in an hour they say... Those are things that happen that I wish I could control but I can't. The important thing is that I am there for my guests. If I can't fix it, I will get the person who can. I never leave them alone. The same thing for the power. There was light in the hallways during the short time it was out and it came back quickly. I cannot control it, unfortunately. If there was noise in the bldg. I did not know about it. You should have informed me and I would have tried to look into it and see what was going on. I'm sorry about that and apologize for the inconvenience. I will ask Arnold what was going on and address the problem with the bldg administrators immediately. Isla Verde is a great tourist spot. Miles of sand, blue water, breeze, restaurants, hotels, dancing, casinos, lots of water sports. It is close to Condado, Old San Juan, the forts... You don't need a car for that. On the other hand, if you wish to explore el Yunque rain forest, the fosforescent bay, the port to Vieques and Culebra are just a short car ride away. In fact, Puerto Rico is a small island you can visit any point on a one day excursion. It takes 3 hours at the most to cross it from east to west. We provide our guests with parking inside the gated property because we know most of them like to move around and visit. Puertoricans love the beach, the lush vegetation, beautiful mountain and ocean views. We think it is one of the reasons tourists come. Many tourists come just for that : ecotourism. It all depends on what you are looking for. We like our guests to enjoy and have a great stay. If you come visit us again I will do my best to make it just that, great for you. Thank-you Rebecca. Come back soon!
I'm not one to bother with reviews, but this place was so nice I felt I had to. If you are reading this review you'll see that it's one of many 5 star reviews. That's why I chose it and I was not disappointed. The pictures online do not do justice to the beauty that is laid before you in this unit. The living room boasts one of the best views of ocean and sky that you will ever see. Best part is that windows open wide to the sight and sound of the ocean and cools the apartment with a breeze coming off the ocean. The kitchen is small, but is equipped the essentials for a week of vacationing. The bathroom is nice and has a big shower with good water pressure. The bedroom also offers a beautiful view, although not as nice as the living room. The tv in the living room is small, but I can't imagine you would ever find the need to turn it on. We spent five days here and never even thought to turn it on. Plus, the unit has wifi so it's perfect to do a little work on your laptop, but you won't want to. Believe me. The location is good too. It's a step away from the beach and walking distance to several restaurants and a Walgreens. There's a supermarket about a half mile away if you don't mind walking. The area feels safe as you will see police and other tourists walking through the streets freely during the day. The landlord is responsive and appears to take great pride in her place. The caretaker was kind and helpful too. Overall, this was a great place to rent and made experiencing Puerto Rico a terrific event . We were sad to leave, but we'll be back. Amazing!

We really enjoyed everything about this place, the ocean waves were so relaxing to hear all the time and the apartment had all the supplies that one needs when being away from home, even cooking utensils. Lourdes and Mr. Arnold were also very kind. Thank you!

This trip including myself and my boyfriend and it was our first time to Puerto Rico, so when I found this condo online, until I actually got there, I wasn't sure what I was going to find, especially since there was only one other review available at the time. This was a well maintained, CLEAN condo in a great location. It is right on the beach! You look out of the bay windows in the living room and bedroom onto the ocean which sometimes comes right up to the building. There are multiple local restaurants as well as hotel restaurants (and fast-food) all within walking distance. The facility manager was great about answering calls and giving us suggestions for eating places. It is also located close to highway exit for the highways to get yourself where ever you want to go. This was less expensive than the hotels in the area, much more private and well worth the money. I would recommend this place to friends and family.

Perfect quaint little place
Perfect quaint little place
I thought about writing that this place doesn't live up to the hype JUST so it didn't get more traffic and could be available any time we want to come back. But that wouldn't be fair game to Lourdes, who was great and helpful. I have to confess that this place is simply AMAZING! The location is ideal, and the premises are perfect!! The apartment has a great view, and the sound of the waves are so soothing. Kitchen is equipped with pots and pans, utensils, bowls, plates and cups. You have private access to the beach and a couple of restaurants at walking distance. If you want to discover Puerto Rico rent a car! The unit includes a private parking space so that was a plus. The building does not have a pool but it is just so comfortable and intimate that we didn't even miss it. And besides you couldn't possibly find a bigger pool than the ocean. Thank you Lourdes for offering such a well-kept place.

Wonderful weekend get away
Wonderful weekend get away
We had a wonderful vacation at this property. The view from the condo was wonderful and the quick access to the beach made relaxing easy. It was nice to have a secure parking spot for our rental car. The location allowed us to walk to multiple restaurants and to easily get a cab to Old San Juan. Our only recommendation was some bar height chairs for by the window to sit and enjoy the view of the ocean (for those of us who don't get to see it very often!)

About the owner: I love ocean views! This is why I love this property.
Why the Owner Chose Isla Verde:
When I first stepped in the apartment I just couldn't believe how beautiful the view is! It is amazing. We completely remodeled the apartment and it is now a jewel. It is on the beach and next to one of my favorite restaurants in all of San Juan. You, like me, will love to relax in this cute restaurant/bar next door with a wonderful deck and great hamburgers and mofongos!
The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
Quiet hideaway: We are on a quiet street. Close to everything but far from the traffic and noise of Ave. Isla Verde. Our beachfront is quiet. The only thing you will hear are the waves... Punta El Medio (also known as Biascoechea) in Isla Verde! The most beautiful beaches at your step! Things to do: Walking distance from the apartment there are hotels, casinos, a Walgreens and lots of restaurants. Pueblo Supermarket is a five minute ride in car away. Next to the apartment there is a nice restaurant with a spectacular view (the same one you will see from thel apartment) with a deck where you can relax, listen to music, eat or just have a drink. This apartment cannot be beat! Like us in Facebook: Caribe Rentals.
