THIS IS THE SPOT! We have a WELL stocked condo right on Isla Verde Beach to share with you. The master bedroom (1 queen,) 2nd bedroom (2 fulls,) and living area (futon) are all air conditioned, but let the sea breeze through the louvred windows that face 270 degrees in our 12th floor retreat.

Take the elevator down to the pool deck and from there the beach is 12 paces away. Bring our beach gear down with you and let the waves roll in. Stroll down the beach 2 buildings and find the Intercontinental Five-Star Resort . Next door to it is the famous El San Juan Hotel and Casino.

Restaurants, shops, fast food, ATMs, and 24-hour convenience, pharmacy, and liquor stores are all within a couple of blocks of your door.

3 Restaurant/Bars occupy the 1st floor of the our building, so a spicy tuna wrap, breakfast burrito, or cold beer are always ready for you. Have a cold Medalla at El Alambique while the sun sets on the sand and surf and head right upstairs back to Casa Bonita.

Casa Bonita was updated in 2014 and comes complete with free cable, high-speed internet, DVD, Blu-ray (wifi-enabled,) and phone (unlimited US and Puerto Rico,) not that you'll want to spend any time with these familiar friends.

The building itself has a security desk and swimming pool, and the unit has same-floor laundry machines and it comes with 1 covered parking space.

We pride ourselves on stocking anything you might need, so expect new dishes (indoor and outdoor,) new cookware, coffee, spices, and all the appliances and amenities you would expect in your own home.

We look forward to you vacationing at our place, and we (the owners,) and our on-site property manager are always available to answer any of your questions or give you great recommendations for fun things to do!

About Jay Rabideau and Ami Pickering

My wife and I bought this wonderful beach condo in March of 2014 so that we could have a place to take our 2 children to escape the Colorado snow. We come here frequently and keep the place equipped with anything we like to have while on vacation.

Jay Rabideau and Ami Pickering purchased this Condo in 2014

Why Jay Rabideau and Ami Pickering chose Isla Verde

We love the mix of foreign and familiar that Puerto Rico has to offer. Also, there is so much culture, history, and nature to appreciate on the island as opposed to resorts whose only feature is the beach.

What makes this Condo unique

Before buying this condo, we stayed at several of the other larger condo developments in Isla Verde. The building we chose is not as expansive as the others, but it has quicker beach access and is really in the best central location on the strip for access to restaurants, casinos, etc.

Clean and good location. Restaurants, food stores, pharmacies and casinos within walking distance. If you get a car, be sure to venture away from the area and hit some roadside stands to the east, they had excellent food and service. Oh and be careful in the mountains, some roads are only one lane and we even found one that was washed out completely. had an adventure for sure.

                                                                  Hi Jay!! The appartment was super clean, with all the things for the stay.Love it!!

                                                                  Super nice, It was a really good experience

                                                                  Great vacation condo

                                                                  Rudi P.

                                                                  What a great condo for our vacation to PR! It had everything we needed, was conveniently located and a great space for our family. It was so nice to arrive and have coffee and a beverage awaiting us. The closet full of beach equipment was fabulous, it made going to the beach so easy and enjoyable. We would love to visit again, thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us.

                                                                  Great location!

                                                                  Steven H.Massachusetts, USA

                                                                  We had a great time here in Isla Verde! Casa Bonita is a very cozy and clean apartment. The only negatives to us was the noise and the mattresses. If you keep your windows open you can hear all the city noises at night (airport is right on your backyard so get used to hearing the planes taking off), and if you shut the windows and turn the ACs on they are also quite loud. What we did is we closed the windows at night and turned the AC in the living area only (not the ones in the bedroom) and kept the ceiling fans on in the bedrooms. That was enough to keep us cool and keep the noise down. If you like soft mattresses you'll love these. My husband has back problems so it was not good for him. However, we did notice that there was a thick gel pad on top of the mattress which was very soft, so once we took the pad off the bed the mattress itself wasn't that bad. The kids were fine with the soft beds. I also thought it was great that they provided us with all the basics (toilet paper, paper towels, soap, etc) as well as other commodities such as beach chairs, beach toys for the kids, towels, cooler, beach bags, and much more. Location is what's best about Casa Bonita. You have everything you need close by. Stores, restaurants, and of course, the beautiful beach. It's also not a far drive from the east coast of the island where there's a lot of the "must dos" such as the bio bay, the rainforest, the ferry to the islands (Palomino, Icacos, Vieques, Culebra, etc), the natural water falls, and many other amazing beaches. We didn't get to meet the actual owner of the property but Mary was in charge of our check in and check out, and she was very nice and pleasant. We had a great time in Puerto Rico! There's A LOT to do in this island and great tasting local food to eat!

                                                                  Welcoming and super stocked!

                                                                  Maci M.

                                                                  Stayed here on a family trip (me, husband and 5 kids ages 17, 12, 5, 4, 15 mos). What a wonderfully stocked condo! Cooking was a breeze with all of the provided spices and essentials. Cold beer and water in the fridge on arrival. The kids loved using the boogie boards and other pool/beach toys. Just steps from the beach and pool. It is not the nicest condo that I have ever stayed at- it had a kind of funky urban feel, however it was clean, comfy, and felt very homey. Only 1 bathroom with that big of a family was a bit challenging. Check in and out was easy and quick. I thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

                                                                  Great condo with great location

                                                                  Condo was great and right on the beach as shown in the pictures. I was traveling with kids and they really enjoyed the boogie board and other beach items that were in the condo. It was also nice to have basic amenities stocked in the kitchen such as spices, sugar, coffee, etc. Would definitely stay here again if we make it back to Puerto Rico.
