  • Was a Good Choice Condo!

    "Our family of 6 just returned home from Isla Verde! We had a very enjoyable vacation and renting this condo definitely contributed to that outcome. We found the condo to be clean, beds comfortable, well supplied (including 2 beach chairs, cooler, sand cart, sand toys, beach towels, iron/board, hair dryer, books, a roll away bed and any kitchen supplies you might need.) My husband was very happy that a Starbuck's was next door in the El San Juan also. The location was a plus being on the beach, close to a supermarket, walking distance to many restaurants, bars and stores. Our favorites included La Playa hotel bar/restaurant-very close via the beach; Jimmy's BBQ top floor of El San Juan resort-good for happy hour meal specials and Luppi's Mexican restaurant. We enjoyed the pool at the ESJ towers and the little market in the building was a plus also; must mention all employees at ESJ very nice and helpful. Would recommend renting this condo!"

  • March 2015 Vacation

    "Just finished our 1st family trip to PR. 6 of us, including granddaughter, 4 generations of family stayed here. Everyday was paradise. Everything we needed was available in condo. 3 separate bedrooms plus livingroom area plus deck overlooking the ocean. Room enough for privacy or to lounge together. We watched the sunrise from the deck most days, then walked along the water outside. Water flowed into a lagoon like area that the baby loved to play in. We didn't run into anyone else on the beach or at the pool. We visited El Yunque, like 10 minute drive away, and hiked to La Mina falls (worth it)! We did bring the baby (1 1/2 yrs old), she had to be carried but it was no trouble. We spent many days by the kiosks, 5 minute drive, and swam in the water there as well as bought our souvenirs and ate SOOO much food. Most people we spoke to spoke English and Spanish. My 2 teens did 2-hr horseback ride along ocean and river and absolutely loved it. We also ate at Boardriders our first night in and Cactus grill (both 2 min away). Very nice. We did a little grocery shopping at Amigos, right across the road. Condo had everything we needed to prepare the couple meals we ate inside. We drove to Gurabo one day to visit friend, and also to Old San Juan another day, about an hrs drive for each trip. Those were only distant excursions, otherwise swimming, walking along the ocean, and rain forest are in front of and behind the condo. Again, I'll stress, that outside deck was a favorite spot to chill before and after enjoying each day in Luquillo. Overall, best trip ever! I will absolutely go back. We didn't want to leave in the first place. The owner, Tom, was available by phone and email. Answered all our questions promptly. He was wonderful, the place was paradise."

    "I stayed in this unit December 5-11, 2014. The apartment was very clean and nice. Everything one needs for an enjoyable relaxing time is provided. It's in a great location in Condado, with great ocean views from the 16th floor. Very quiet and peaceful studio. 24 hour security. This was my first experience with condo rental, and it was pleasant and far better than more expensive hotel stays. The owners Daniel and Noelia a very nice people to work with. They are very attentive and care about their tenants comfort and convenience. I would recommend this unit to others."

  • An Excellent Choice

    "This is an EXCELLENT choice for a visitor to Puerto Rico who wants to stay close enough to things but a little bit away (a mile or two) from some of the busier areas. I've been to San Juan about 11 times in the last two years and stayed in both Condado and Isla Verde....well, Ocean Park is in the middle and I really liked it here: quiet, a minute from the beach, and a few restaurants and grocery stores within about 1000 yards. Just what I needed and since I rent a car I could go anywhere, but found the nice solitude of this area simply amazing. I made a decision not to stay in a hotel and contacted a handful of rentals through this site. Stanley was the only owner to contact me within an hour (the rest took about 24 hours) and although I can't guarantee he is always able to do this, it clearly stood out as a good sign. We arrived about 8:30pm and Stanley was there to greet us. I can't say enough about how responsive he is and genuinely wants the visitor to have a great experience. I will stay again at one of his properties. About this apartment: It was clean and stocked with everything needed for a week's stay. What you see in the pictures is what we found, although there is a flat screen television mounted on the wall in the living room that I don't see in one of the pictures.) Pots, pans, dishes, glasses, and misc other items (cooking oil, coffee, spices, and just extras that were helpful.) And there are a couple of amazing outdoor patios that were beautiful. The first is just outside the living room and so comfortable that one evening I did work on my laptop out there. The second is the rooftop that is (if I recall) tiled and gives you a good view of the ocean. Both were incredibly relaxing. I needed to use wi-fi one evening and Stanley gave me the password. It worked just fine (I see another renter had problems but I was there a couple weeks earlier and had no issues.) Parking was easily available and air conditioning in the rooms were excellent. Open a few windows in the kitchen and living room--the ocean breeze was wonderful and it was incredibly comfortable. I highly recommend this property, as well as the kind of communication and customer service that Stanley provides. It was a great experience. I liked it so much that I'm available if anyone has questions at ddg1111@outlook.com. I'm from Texas."

Puerto Rico Travel Tips

The Caribbean is one of the loveliest places for a relaxing vacation where you can unplug, spend time being at ease outdoors and simply enjoy the company of your travel companions. And Puerto Rico is a top spot for all of that, with its tropical terrain, fascinating history and exciting culture on this 100-mile-long island of the Greater Antilles.

The options for exploring nature in Puerto Rico are vast. From sunny, sandy beaches to lush rainforests, mountains, coral reefs and more, you can spend your days hiking exhilarating trails, marveling at the local wildlife or laying on the the shore with a good book and tasty beverage. No matter what, you have your choice of outdoor activities, so you can try them all if the mood suits you.

Cultural activities abound here as well. There a variety of dining options, many specializing in a local favorite - suckling pig - and music blasting as locals and visitors alike dance the night away. Museums offer a glimpse into the island's past, its heritage and art, which can also be seen through the various examples of architecture around Puerto Rico.

Things to Do in Puerto Rico

- Museum of Art of Puerto Rico: a visit to the Museum of Art of Puerto Rico is a must. Housed in a Neoclassical building from the 1920s, which was formerly the San Juan Municipal Hospital, the museum of one of the largest in the Caribbean. Inside you'll find collections dating back to the 17th century. In the east wing, a five-story stained-glass window by local artist Eric Tabales dominates the space and is a truly a sight to behold. In 1996, a wing designed by architects Otto Reyes and Luis Gutierrez was added. The museum also features a 400-seat theater and large atrium, and outside you can stroll through a lovely garden with a variety of native plants. If you work up an appetite wandering around, the museum also houses a restaurant.

- Jobos Beach: This is one of the best beaches in Puerto Rico for surfing because of the excellent waves on a low-depth area. Whether you're hoping to learn how to hang 10 or just want to relax on the sand, Jobos Beach is a well-kept, clean spot to do just that. Toss a Frisbee, build sandcastle?s or take turns burying each under under the sand, then wash it all off with a jump into the water.

- Aguadilla Ice Skating Arena: Something you might not expect to find in the tropics is an ice skating rink, but in Puerto Rico you can hit the ice at Aguadilla Ice Skating Arena. It's the only rink to be found in the Caribbean, and could be just the thing too cool off after a day in the sun. It's chilly in here, so dress appropriately, then lace up those skates and take a lap. The arena is open every day and certainly provides a unique experience for those visiting Puerto Rico.

- Casa Blanca Museum: If you're looking for the oldest museum in Puerto Rico, you've found it at Casa Blanca Museum, which is thought to be of great historic value. It's a two-bedroom home with a kitchen, foyer, dining room, throne room and oratorio. As you move through the museum you'll see the rooms decorated to represent the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. Outside, you can explore the museum's beautiful garden with its wonderfully smelling orchard.

- Camuy River Cave Park: If the adventure lovers of the group are looking for a unique outdoor experience, The Camuy River Cave Park is it. Visitors can explore the natural limestone cave system and underground waterways. Here you'll find more than 10 miles of subterranean beauty with 220 caves and 17 different entrances. The system is located in the 268-acre park and is one of the most popular attractions in Puerto Rico. Some favorite spots here include Tri-Towns Sinkhole, Spiral Cave and Sinkhole, and the Clara Cave and Empalme Sinkhole, which you can see on a professional tour.

- Culebra National Wildlife Refuge: If you're hoping to see some of the natural scenery and local wildlife in Puerto Rico, look no further than the Culebra National Wildlife Refuge. More than 50,000 seabirds from 13 different species call this place home, as do three species of sea turtles. It's a lovely place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the cities and relax. Plan an exhilarating hike around the area as you watch for native animals to come out of hiding.

- Casa del Rey: Learn about the island's history with a visit to Casa del Rey - the King's House. The structure is the oldest in Dorado and served as an inn first in 1823, then housing for personnel from the Spanish Government and later as regional military headquarters. In 1848, it was purchased and converted into a home. Casa del Rey has been modified once again and restored into a museum where you can learn about Puerto Rican culture, see examples of antique furniture and learn about the history of the region.
