About Gabriel Strol
We live in Brooklyn New York but plan to spend several months at our condo during winter once we retire. Currently we go down 2-3 times per year to enjoy the beautiful beach and island but also to make sure the condo is in top condition at all times. Not just a rental place!!
Gabriel Strol purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Gabriel Strol chose Isla Verde
We purchased this property because of the beautiful beach/condominium. The location is fantastic. We are about 10 minutes from San Juan's International Airport , 15 minutes away from Condado, and 20 minutes from Old San Juan. Hotels, shopping, entertainment are all within 2 blocks of the building. Water sports are available right on the beach. We have been coming to P.R. for over 20 years and this has always been our favorite building. The 3 mile beach is great for morning walks/runs and it is cleaned (tractor raked) every morning. Future winter retirement home!
What makes this Condo unique
Large balcony facing the swimming pool, grove of palm trees and the ocean, where you can enjoy a meal or check your e-mails, with our wireless WiFi. Two 40" flat screen TV's one in bedroom one in living room, with cable.

Absolutely great location
Very nice place to stay, we have everything around, the apartment was very clean, can’t wait to go back.
Puerto Rico is ready for visitors!
This apartment is in a great location in a good neighborhood. It's right on a very clean and well maintained beach and has direct beach access. It also has a pool that has some oddly strict rules on bringing really anything into the pool, but that's generally only if the security guard is there on the weekends.
This location is also a great launching point for trips to the East (rain forest, Culebra, etc.). I highly recommend this location for first time visitors to Puerto Rico.
On top of that, you have a very helpful and communicative host in Gabriel. He made sure I was well taken care of and well informed the whole way. The beach chairs and beach bag in the apartment really came in handy. Bath and beach towels were provided, which saved a lot of room packing.
My only negative is that here is a building that partially blocks your view to the ocean, but it's really not that bad.
I would come back again!
Thanks for taking the time to write the review!
For first time visitors our 30 years of traveling to the island can be of help in planning your vacation. Our central location has easy access to the highways for day trips. Even though not much time is spent in the condo we make sure its very clean and fully stocked with all the amenities of a beach place. Our central A/C provides comfort in the summer but opening windows provides a nice ocean breeze.
Satisfied Repeat Vacationers
This is my second time staying in Gabriel's condo. It was a pleasure staying in your condo with my husband and granddaughter. Gabriel's condo has everything you need and very clean and welcoming. I would stay again at his condo. Thanks Gabriel!!
Excellent stay in Gabriel's condo
Our 2 week stay was in mid January and 4 months post Hurricane Maria so just a few comments on the status of the Isla Verde area. Simply put you would not know a major weather event had come through 4 months before. It was fully powered, little evidence of debris, save for some palm tree damage and restaurants all open and grocery store full inventory. Gabriel was a pleasure to deal with always very prompt and courteous in all communication. The unit is in a large condo complex about 10 min from the airport and located on a fabulous beach that is quite swimmable and great to walk as we did each day. The pool was clean and quite large. A security guard on weekends to make sure no rowdiness. The unit was exactly as Gabriel described and fully equipped. It was clean on arrival and ample size for my wife and I. Located on 6 floor we used the balcony for all of our dining and evening cocktails. It had all amenities: WiFi, a/c, room darkening shades. The shower was good pressure. Kitchen and appliances were all updated. Elevator was never a wait and laundry in basement was fine. We also met some great people who vacation annually at the complex and became fast friends. We walked to all the restaurants with little worry as building is on the Tourist strip. Uber was plentiful and was $6 ride to air port. We highly recommend renting from Gabriel.
Puerto Rico is back!!
Come and enjoy steady 80+ degree weather and one of the best beaches on the island right outside the condo! Why rent a room in a hotel when you can have an entire apartment for less? Enjoy some fine restaurants and entertainment all within walking distance of our condo. We make sure everyone's vacation is a success.
This was my second time staying at Marbella del Caribe. It's a great alternative for those wanting more space and that at-home feeling on vacation. Gabriel's unit is exactly as described. Very spacious and equipped with everything you need. Dealing with the transaction was super easy and saving the 11% on the site charges was GREAT! I received my deposit within days of my return home. This unit is perfect for a quick getaway or extended stay. Don't hesitate, la Isla never disappoints and neither did Gabriel. ¡Hasta la próxima!
Renting from an owner is best. We provide a great product for the fees and since we use the place several times a year we ensure everything is maintained. Unfortunately VRBO has decided that the yearly fee we pay them is not enough so they are forcing renters to pay a fee as well. Greed! For a great vacation contact owners when possible!
BEST VACATION EVER!!
Excellent accommodations for our family of three. Perfect location right on the beach. Everything you need is within walking distance. Gabriel provided everything we needed from beach apparel to cable TV. Gabriel was there from beginning to end. He made us feel more like friends than renters. His personal touch made our trip the best ever. He recommended restaurants, places to visit, and is genuinely concerned about your stay. He even followed up with us once we returned home. This is now our place to stay in Puerto Rico. Perfect condo, Perfect location and Perfect Host. Again thanks Gabriel for making our first trip to Puerto Rico so memorable.
Why rent just a room in a hotel when you can have a full one bedroom apartment for half the price?
Why pay an additional 11% fee to VRBO when you can rent from us the owners and avoid the fee?
With over 30 years experience of traveling to beautiful Puerto Rico we will do everything to make your stay as pleasant as possible!
We are located 10 minutes from the airport ($14 cab ride) but no airplane noise. Visit the only rain forest in the US Federal Park system. Visit the underground caves at Camuy, a 1 hour car ride going north west of Isla Verde. See historic Old San Juan (a UNESCO Heritage site) with it's cobble stone streets, forts, museums, old churches, great restaurants (go to Barrachina where the Pina Colada was invented), see the port where the cruse ships arrive, and of course outlets for shopping (Coach, Tommy, Nautica,etc.).
