Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Our property is a nice and quaint, fully remodeled with all new modern furniture in the heart of the Isla Verde Tourist District. This is a 1 bedroom apartment with 1 parking space included with your stay. We are located across the street from one of the best beaches in Puerto Rico. There is a direct access to the 24 hr grocery store (Pueblo) located in the back of the pool area. This access was just recently added to the property and is a huge convenience. You are also free to use the pool and facilities during the open pool hours.

Our closet beach shares the same sand with the Intercontinental Hotel, Hotel El San Juan and the Ritz Carlton (3 of the swankest hotels in San Juan). If you are looking to explore, many unique restaurants and hotels fill Isla Verde Avenue. Walk and browse the hotels and shops or you can take the bus to Old San Juan (just 20 minute ride). We are also only a short 30 minute ride from El Yunque Rain Forest. Go and explore one of the oldest rain forests in the world.

If you just want a day of relaxation, our beaches in Isla Verde are some of the best in the Puerto Rico. Many of them often voted as the best city/urban beaches in the Caribbean.

Basics: This is a home and not a hotel. We keep our rates very low compared to the hotels in the area, and in return we ask that you kindly treat this space with as much care as your own. Please refrain from smoking of any kind, pets, parties, loud music or bringing in any guests not previously listed.

-If anything is amiss please let us know immediately so that we can resolve the issue.Please do not try to fix our appliances, consult the management, take or move any items without contacting us. If something is not in it's usual place, and we cannot locate it, we may assume it is missing and charge you for it.

Damages: In the case that any permanent damage (including stains on linens which require us to purchase new items) is found upon check-out, extra charges will apply.

Facilities: We do not offer compensation in the rare event of an unforeseeable inconvenience at the building, such as maintenance on the facilities (ex. pool closed, fire alarms, water maintenance, power outage).

Can't wait to go back!!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the owners are amazing. They met us when we picked up our rental car and personally lead us to the property. We were given great advice for things to see and do, including checking out the beach in Pinones (which I highly recommend)!! The communication with the owners was great... any questions were answered right away. I really felt at ease with the owners and I cannot begin to explain how wonderful our vacation was. The property is very conveniently located to casinos, shopping, dining, bars and the beach was literally across the street. We rented a car to get out and explore San Juan and some of the surrounding areas, including El Yunque Rainforest. I would highly recommend doing this although you certainly do not need to rent a vehicle as the property is within walking distance to most everything you will need... in fact the grocery store is a very short walk away. I went for runs every day down the main strip and down the beach. I felt very safe and secure in doing so. Our deposit was refunded almost immediately after we returned home. I have absolutely nothing but great things to say about the property and its location and owners and will no doubt be returning to Puerto Rico and would definitely stay here again.

Want to go back..........now!

  • 4 of 5

This rental was nice, comfortable and a good value. It really is close to all you need and most of what you want. Barely a 5 min. walk to the beach. Restaurants galore, mini- mart, grocery store and Walgreens are all an easy walk away. It is right across the street from 2 very nice Hotel/Casinos with their own restaurants and entertainment. If you want to venture further, cabs and bus stops are right there, as well as car rentals, of course. The Apt. rental owners are so nice and very attentive to you. We would go back.

perfect little vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for a week in January and really enjoyed our time here. It was on a busy street but felt like it was tucked away somewhere else. It was clean, quiet and relaxing inside. We were able to get everything we needed within a few blocks. Whether it was buying groceries, fast food, or fine dining everything seemed to be within a short walk away. The hotels across the street all had Casinos, restaurants, lounges, and shops to wander through, as well as taxis waiting outside the gate if you needed to go somewhere else. We felt very comfortable walking around day or night. The owners were SUPER friendly and helpful, answering any questions we had about the area, trying to make our stay as great as possible. Would definately stay here again if returning to Puerto Rico and have no reservations about recommending it to anyone.

My home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

I LOVE THIS APARTMENT!! This is my favorite place to stay every time I visit Puerto Rico. The apartment is clean, beautifully decorated and has been upgraded with a king size bed and WIFI. The owner is simply awesome, as well as the neighbors. Plenty of restaurants and beach within walking distance. Right next to the airport. Great location! I have plans to return again next year!!

Not too bad

  • 3 of 5

I was here for R&R from Afghanistan with my girlfriend. Very nice people. The ceiling fans didn't work. The shower was apparently leaking onto the guy below us. We went out on St Patricks day and got sunburned pretty bad and were in bed all the next day. While they chose to come and fix it while we were paying to stay there. We were in bed resting while they were in the next room drilling all day. The lady said she'd send a bottle of champagne over for us to make up for it...never got that. When we left, my girlfriend realized she left some clothes behind, she called and left a message. Have yet to get that call back. But in all, it was a nice place, I even got a discount for being military. The people were very approachable and nice. Aside from that one day where they wanted to have the shower fixed "before the next tenants got there"...not so bad. Mr Rodriguez was very helpful with where to find specific types of food. It was across the street from the Intercontinental, which has a casino....which you can go in and gamble and get free drinks and sandwiches...and apparently, if you're white..a line of credit will be offered the second you sit down.......the beach is right there....Aside from the small inconveniences, it was a good experience. I'm sure if we had complained, they would have done their best to satisfy us.
