Beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo in the heart of Isla Verde

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Marbella Aug 4-11th, 2017.

The grounds were beautiful and the pool was an added bonus. The condo has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, air conditioned, it is very clean with one king bed in the master and two twin beds in the other bedroom. All mattresses were very comfortable and good sized bedrooms. The two bathrooms were a great bonus with our family of 4 staying in the condo. The condo is close to a grocery store (about a 1.2 km walk) and their is a Walgreens across the street which was very convenient for us! We were able to walk to restaurants, casino's, grocery stores and the condo was directly on the beach so you have your choice of going to the pool or ocean. The condo had a washer and dryer which we found convenient - didn't have to go home with dirty clothes. The beach in Isla Verde is breathtaking. The condo had a City and mountain view which were very nice. The condo has all the comforts of home and we didn't need anything! Nora was very easy to communicate with and mailed us our key prior to her stay! She took the time to answer any questions we had prior to our stay! The building has great security so we always felt safe!! The air conditioning was great as when we were there it was a very hot week. A cab ride to the marina or old San Juan was approximately $20-$25 USD and the condo is very close to the airport which is something we liked after a long flight from Toronto! Thanks so much we enjoyed ourselves in the condo and will definitely be back to Puerto Rico!

Unfair claim by landlord

  • 2 of 5

Location is good, apartment in fare conditions. I made sure to clean-up apt before we left and Nora still kept $75.00 from our deposit claiming that we left garbage and roaches. You'll be better off telling renters that there is a $75.00 cleaning fee instead of acusing people of things which they haven't done and keeping part of their deposit.

Owner's Response: My caretaker reports to me after each renter leaves. She told me that this apartment was left dirty, with many sheets and towels to clean (more than would be expected with the 5 occupants claimed). There was garbage left in the apartment and roaches. The exterminator had to be called. In addition, I was called by the administration regarding cigarette butts being thrown off the balcony. They also told me that there appeared to be many people on the balcony every night. In the last year, I have only charged ONE other renter a cleaning fee. I do expect the apartment to be used and towels, sheets, etc. left. However, when it is in a condition that requires an additional cleaning person in order to get the apartment ready for the next renter, the renter will be charged a cleaning fee (which is stipulated in the contract). This apartment is in much better shape than "fair condition" as I am in Puerto Rico every month and check out all of my apartments to make sure everything is the best it can be. All of my other reviews on this apartment have five stars, which I believe demonstrates the condition of the apartment. I am sorry that this renter felt that the charge was unfair. The fact is that the cost of the cleaning person and the extermination fee far exceeded the $75 that the renter was charged.

Loved It

  • 5 of 5

The best rental ever. I was so pleased with the apartment and the surrounding neighborhood. Very convenient location. Having the beach and pool close was the best part of staying in the apartment. Nora enclosed information recommending restaurants and nearby businesses before arriving that made it easier for us to get all we needed to make our stay enjoyable. I will definitely stay there again. It was well worth it. Wonderful vacation. I highly recommend it.
