About Judy Buck

I am from Cape May, New Jersey and have been coming to the beautiful island of Puerto Rico for well over 30 years. I have had the privilege to share this home with my parents for many years. My parents wintered here and loved Puerto Rico. They are both deceased but their memory lives on in this special condo in the ESJ Towers. In January 2015 a new master bath room was installed which is handicap accessible. Our condo is one of the most beautiful in the ESJ with a new hall bath and new kitchen and stainless appliances that was completed in 2008 and 2009. My parents prided themselves on making their condo beautiful. Our apartment was a 3 bedroom that was converted to a 2 bedroom. Unlike other units here ours offers a large formal living/dining area and a comfy rec room with a 47' flat screen tv. Our family has enjoyed many years in Puerto Rico and we're sure you will too. The second unit is right next door to other unit - remodeled in Spring of 2016. Features new TV's, new furniture and appliances, new bedding, dishes, pots and pans. Unit boasts 2bedrooms and 1.5 baths with ocean view. Very bright and airy.

Judy Buck purchased this condo in 2001

Why Judy Buck chose Puerto Rico

My parents vacationed on this wonderful island for over 30 years before settling in San Juan in the Isla Verde section of town. They loved the convenience of the night life, restaurants, beach, grocery store and airport. The ESJ Towers are in the heart of everything and just a short drive to Old San Juan and south towards Fajardo and Carolina. Before my parents purchased their condo they vacationed at the ESJ for several years. The were sold on the ESJ because of the many amenities that are offered. They especially liked that the ESJ is gated and has 24 hour security - an added benefit to any property. The staff is exceptional and very accommodating.

What makes this condo unique

My family always enjoys what Puerto Rico has to offer and how easy it is to take advantage of while in the ESJ Towers. There is a concierge located right in building! We have taken trips west to see the Taino Indian Ceremonial grounds, visited Rincon, the phosphorescent bay, Ponce, snorkeled and dived in Fajardo, toured Ponce de Leons house in Old San Juan and ate at 5 star restaurants and shopped at our favorite mall 'the Plaza of the Americas'. The new Mall of San Juan will be opening March of 2015 and is conveniently located a short drive away. The Forts in Old San Juan are spectacular and educational! We have taken advantage of all this island has and hope you will as well.

It is so easy to get there from the states. USAir and American have several direct flights from many states in the US. Once you arrive in San Juan you are just 5 minutes from your beach vacation.

Best of all Puerto Rico is 86 degrees most 365 days of the year - unlike some frosty southern states in January and February and only 1 more hour by plane!

Judy thanks so much for sharing your home with us. We were very pleased with both 175&176, It accommodated all 8 of us including the 2 babies. Everything we could possibly have needed, and more were available to us. The only inconvenience was the pool entrance was under construction, but not your fault.

Thanks again!

enjoyed our stay here

  • 4 of 5

there were 4 of us "girls" over 55 and we stayed here for 4 nights. It pretty much met all of our needs! Unfortunately we hit a few days of seaweed which evidently plagues this beach in the winter months (occasionally) The unit was very nice. It was VERY clean and totally equipped. It is an old building (even though Judy has updated her condos) . They have done a good job updating the lobby and the pool is nice. Nice pool chairs... I loved having the mini mart on the first floor and REALLY loved our deck overlooking the beach. The sounds of the waves drowned out the airport noise. My only complaint is that there weren't a lot of windows... It felt a little cavelike... that is probably because of hurricane protection. It was just kind of sad to be right there on the beach and only able to see it from the patio and a part of the living room. Judy was wonderful... very helpful. She suggested absolutely the best restaurant (Entreevino) of our trip. (save room for the baked Alaska)

Convenient location, large condo, very responsive host

  • 5 of 5

The first thing that I would like to share about my stay is the responsiveness of the owner - Judy Buck.

When I first started searching for properties in Puerto Rico, I sent many inquiries to different properties. Half of the other hosts and managers never responded, most took more that a week to answer.

Judy sent me an e-mail within an hour of my inquiry and then gave me an excellent explanation of the amenities over the phone.

During our stay, we encountered a small problem. I called Judy and the issue was resolved immediately. This did not cause us any inconvenience.

The condo was very clean and stocked with everything that we needed. It even has herbs and spices in the kitchen. Overall, it is better and bigger than the description or photos would suggest. It has two bedrooms, two baths, and two living rooms, all of them very large. The lanai is the greatest feature of the condo. For me, having an outdoor space where you can see and hear the ocean was one of the best parts of my stay. It is at the corner of the building and probably has one of the best views among the other units in the ESJ building.

Another very convenient feature is the reserved parking spot, which is on the lobby level. This is great especially if you have to carry groceries, beach umbrellas and beach chairs.

The ESJ building is in a fairly good location in Isla Verde. It is very close to a large grocery store (5 min walk), many restaurants and other shops. It has easy access to the highway. We traveled a lot around the island and getting in and out of Isla Verde from the ESJ location was very easy.

Overall, we had great time in Puerto Rico. This was one of our best vacations to a great extend due to the hospitality of our host. I would definitely recommend this location.

What a great trip!

  • 5 of 5

First off, Judy is an absolute sweetheart. She responses very quickly and is very helpful. The condo is beautiful. I stayed there with 4 other girlfriends. The two bathrooms was great! The view is beautiful, and the hotel was very central. We walked most of the time to restaurants and nightlife. The concierge was also so helpful in booking our excursions. Great stay overall! Would definitely highly recommend !

Judy you were right, perfect location and the condo was beautiful. The staff at ESJ was tremendous as they answer every one of our questions. There are many places to eat that are a short distance from the condo. Thanks Judy!

25th Anniversarry Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Puerto Rico & Judy's condos made the trip even better. We had a very large group with us so we rented both of her units, 175 & 176, which are right next to each other. Both units were comfortable & spacious, with breath taking views of the beach which was just steps away. Judy had beach chairs & an ice chest in the units which we made use of almost daily. My son & father-in-law really appreciated the wifi. It enabled them to keep up with the Mets games, a must for these die hard fans. It was definitely a home away from home! We would surely return here on another trip to Isla Verde!
