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.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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!

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.

Owner's Response: 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!

A Room with a View

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in the same building before but this apartment had so much more to offer, including beach chairs and even a beach bag. Gabriel was very responsive to all my emails. The pool is an added benefit and the beach is easily accessible. Would definitely recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback. We always say the only thing you need to bring is your bathing suit! Best location for either a beach vacation or to go out and explore the beautiful island. Not just a rental place! We are hands on to make sure everyone's vacation is a great experience.

Excellent Homebase

  • 5 of 5

I travelled over Christmas with my two teens. Gabriel's condo was perfect for us! The view from the balcony is lovely! The condo was immaculate and the bed was comfy. It had everything we needed. Very nice to have beach chairs, bag and toys. The building is very secure with a doorman.

One of the best things is the location. We walked to dinner on three nights. We ubered in to San Jaun with ease, El Yunque was about 45 min drive. There is a daily car rental across the street. And of course, the 24 hour Walgreens across the street! No joke, it was very convenient - we got in around 10 pm, went to Walgreens, got milk, cereal and other necessities (rum).

It was great working with Gabriel. He was available by cell while we were in PR. I recommend staying at his condo!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time from your busy schedule to let other travelers know about our place. The location and quality of the building is the reason we bought! We provide everything except the bathing suit!! Since we use it 3-4 times a year it's NOT just a rental place. Call/email/text me for availability, and save the 9% VRBO/Home Away charges! Gabriel
