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 Carolina

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!

Everything in this rental was great. From the communications with the owner to the property itself we have no complaints. The apartment is beautiful, comfortable and has a great view. Having a great parking spot was also a plus. Highly recommend it. We will be back!

Awesome trip to Puerto Rico!!

  • 5 of 5

As a first time traveler to Puerto Rico, I wasn't sure what to expect. Having vacationed in other places such as Mexico and Jamaica, I never felt too comfortable venturing out very far. However, this trip was not that way. I felt very safe and welcome in PR. Everyone was so helpful and friendly...especially the Uber drivers. They had great insight as to where to go and what to do in various areas of PR. The oceanfront condo we stayed in at ESJ Azul was immaculate...very roomy and clean...and a fantastic view of Isla Verde beach!! I will definitely be back to visit this beautiful place again and would love to stay in this condo again.

Fabulous location

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week at the end of June and received a great deal at a wonderful condo. The location was perfect...close to the airport, right on the beach, and close to Old San Juan. Judy was easy to make arrangements with and her home was beautifully decorated, clean, and well supplied. We most definitely hope to return again!

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)
