About the property

Recharge, renew, and relax at my lovely 1BR Beachfront condo - CasaBels del mar

@copyright 2015 All Right Reserved

Just steps from our beachy CasaBels condo, located in San Juan's Isla Verde District await some of Puerto Rico’s greatest treasures. Stroll the sugar-sand shoreline of Isla Verde Beach, one of the most beautifully kept beaches of the San Juan, Puerto Rico area. Enjoy the shade of palm trees that line the sprawling crescent beach, or meander into one of many restaurants to nosh on mofongos and piña coladas.

Skim the turquoise waters on a jet-ski, snorkel, or stretch out for a long, languid afternoon enjoying the balmy sea breezes. As the sun begins its descent into the water, you'll hear the peaceful songs of the Coqui (Puerto Rico's native frog; pronounced "ko-kee").


After a sun-soaked day, relax in our cozy, clean condo with a light-filled living room that boasts gorgeous views of the gleaming turquoise seas that stretch to the horizon. Local art representing Puerto Rico's Spanish, African and Taino heritage capture the soul of the island, and convenient amenities like Wi-Fi, 40” flat-screen TV with cable and air-conditioning mean you can focus on watching the sun set gorgeously creating colorful skies. At the end of the day, sink into the queen-sized bed and let the ocean waves lull you into a restful Caribbean sleep.


Isla Verde means “Green Island,” so named for its lush natural surroundings, and the beach is at your doorstep. Dip in the ocean, or enjoy one of Isla Verde's many water sports -- parasailing, jet skiing, or banana-boating -- or relax in the shade of the Palmetto trees that frame the water.

Just ten minutes away, the scent of rum fills the air at the Bacardi distillery: Take a tour, or stroll the cobblestone streets of historic Old San Juan, rich with European-flavored culture. And don’t miss visiting La Placita de Santurce, where twilight turns the historic plaza into a big, lively street party where everyone’s welcome. By day, it’s a farmers market, where vendors offer some of the city’s best food and drink. At night, salsa music flows into the streets as locals and visitors begin to dance to the vibrant rhythms. You’ll delight in the blend of culture, music, and energy that bursts forth from this infectious scene.

Dine at surrounding restaurants, whose menus range from tropical fare to haute cuisine. Find great shopping at fashionable high-end boutiques, or browse the mall at Plaza Las Americas. Walk through Isla Verde avenue and tour all major hotels and casinos, like the 5-star El San Juan Hotel Resort & Casino, the Ritz Carlton, the Intercontinental, the Marriott Courtyard, and Embassy Suites. Also at hand are supermarkets, small shops, convenience and drug stores, and ATMs.


I'm Maribel Maldonado, owner of CasaBels. I grew up spending idyllic summers in Puerto Rico, fostering a lifelong love affair with the island. In 2005, I bought a place of my own. Today, I take pride in helping you plan your Puerto Rico visit; I love answering your emails and your questions! Ask me anything about my renting my home, points of interest in the area, or my favorites places to eat. I'm happy to help make your trip great. I am passionate about my home and nothing means more to me than exceeding guests' expectations and meeting people from many parts of the world.

Visit beautiful Isla Verde to sample the sun-filled life – you just might begin to love Puerto Rico as much as I do.


"Maribel, once again, thank you for your hospitality in making our trip a perfect one."

"Maribel is a great host with prompt email replies and instructions."

“The place was wonderful, clean, relaxing, with an awesome view.”

“It was perfect and the beach was right downstairs! We loved it very much and look forward to staying there again.”

“The apartment offers everything you can possibly need.”

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful condo.We've visited Puerto Rico a number of times and this condo is our favorite. The view is fabulous! The beach is super and security doesn't even come to mind. It's like staying in the home of a friend with very good taste. Maribel (the owner) takes great pride in her unit and it shows. No flea market furniture here. Every thing matches and the kitchen is fully equipped including a full size refrigerator. Condo is immaculate. The bed is firm and the room is a good size. The bath is unique. It has an area with a sink and mirror and then there is a full bath with shower. Essentially you have 2 baths. The unit is truly full ocean front from both the bedroom and lounge. Located on one of the most picturesque parts of Isla Verde beach. All the big chain hotels and casinos are a 5 to 7 minute walk away but why pay more for much less. Walk a block and there is a CVS that has everything from rum to aspirin. (Too much of the former will require a little of the latter.) There is a little market/coffee shop a minutes walk from the condo. Next door to the market is local restaurant called Mi Casita. Check out their $2.49 breakfast special and do not miss the mofongo. Walk another 10 minutes and there is an American style super market if you want to eat most of your meals in the condo. Many other restaurants are near by.

You get the picture. Stop looking. Book this unit and start thinking about sun, sand and Puerto Rican nights. But you better hurry. I'm making plans to come back soon!

perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was perfect. We especially appreciate Maribel accommodating our early arrival.The apartment is very nice and clean, stunning view, ideal beach access, enjoyed walk on the beach every morning very much. Couldn't have asked for better place. The apartment is located conveniently close to restaurants (Mi casita is our favorite), supermarket, pharmacy. All our expectations were met 100%. We felt home away from home, even better :).Our trip to Culebra was cancelled due to weather condition, but we went to Ventana cave and Arecibo abservatory instead and had great experience. Looking forward to return.

Wonderful view, great location, exactly as listed!

  • 4 of 5

Loved walking on the beach and just relaxing while looking out at the view. Plenty of things to do if a person wanted to. Market and food all within walking distance. Just leave the windows open for a great breeze. Be sure to bring the bins for people and bird watching!!! We had a problem with the hot water and Maribel got it taken care of the next day.

Cozy and convenient with and amazing view.

  • 3 of 5

I particularly don't like the ceramic floor through out, not easy to keep clean; having to sweep and mop each day. No matter how careful we were coming in from the beach. Also not having the conforms of room service is a bummer. Windows are filthy and the bathroom could use TLC.

Overall the place and the area is nice, and area could use lounges. Best part is the beach, and would come back.

Owner's Response: I'm perplexed by this review. I feel the title of the review and its contents are somewhat of a contradiction and was disappointed. Nevertheless, I'd like to address each point. First I want to mention that this a a true beachfront property and as such, sand and salt are natural elements of the environment. We ask our guest to wash off sand either in the shower or hose faucet by the pool area to minimize the sand in the interior. There are also signs in the premises that mention it. We hope everyone can abide by this but not everyone does. Ceramic tiles are a norm in the tropics; are durable, easy to clean spills, and withstand any flooding either by hurricane or machine machine malfunctioning. Wood flooring is discouraged for these reasons and can succumb to termite infestation. Daily room service is available in hotels. This is an apartment rental by owner. I could have certainly made daily maid service arrangements with my housekeeper to be paid directly to her had my guest requested it. This is actually a very good idea and going forward I will offer the service to my guest prior to booking. Windows require special cleaning services - workers strapped by harness in order to clean the window from the outside, This service is done every 2-3 months. As far as the bathroom, I'm not quite sure exactly what my guest meant by it needs TLC. The bathroom was renovated 8 years ago. Simple and timeless tiles were selected to withstand trends and to avoid becoming outdated. The bathroom is exactly how it looks in the pictures. I will be asking my guest to provide me with more details to see how I can further improve the bathroom. Overall, my guest took good care of the apt and would rent to him again.

Owner's Response: Helga and her husband were a pleasure to have. Their daughter and, I believe, her husband joined them the last week. We had minor issues getting the door open on check-in. Helga apologized for the inconvenience of asking me for help. What she didn't realize is that it was no inconvenience to me at all. I felt It was an inconvenience to her because she was the one on vacation. In my 11 years of renting my home, I have found that most guests don't want to bother the owners. Calling the owner or property managers for question or for a specific need while in your home is no bother at all, at least not for me. I am here to help. Thank you Helga and family for choosing my home and it was a great pleasure to have you and your family. Until the next time.
