About the property

2 BD 1.25 BA sleeps 6-8 !On The Beach!

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 and Casino. 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 Puerto Rico

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.

Perfect location, clean and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo, it was exactly as described, the location was perfect, with direct access to the beach. It was so well equipped with absolutely everything you could ever need from kitchen utensils to beach gear and lots of towels, and very clean. The french style balcony was awesome with fantastic views of the beach. It was convenient to have a restaurant right in the building and it was in walking distance to other restaurants, supermarkets and bars in the area. The owners were very responsive when contacted. Ester, the on site contact, was super efficient. We enjoyed the privacy of the pool, although some might find it a little secluded. There was a book on-site that described everything you need to know about the building and surrounding area, that was super helpful. We managed with a group of six adults for five of our eleven nights. Except for the challenges of sharing one bathroom, we found it very comfortable as most of your time is spent outside anyway. It was nice to have the additional bathroom vanity and sink. We would definitely recommend this property and would love to return some day.

A place you feel like home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my family of 7 from June 20, thru the 27 2016 at Jay and Amy Condo in Isla Verde. We had a great time everything we need it was there a beautiful place, we had everything close to us. My family had a wonderful time they are even talking about coming back next year. Im a Puerto Rican living in chicago for over 33 years and this has been one of my best vacations. Thank

I couldn't sing louder praises for this unit and its owners. Best stocked condo in all VRBO!! Not only was the kitchen fully equipped, it had plenty of bath and beach towels, beach comforts and toys for the kids, linens... anything you could possibly need was already there. LITERALLY across from the beach, it allowed us maximum flexibility with our young kids (5 and 2yrs old). Very nice breeze throughout and the AC units did the job at nighttime :) The owners even checked in on us during our stay! Wouldn't rent anywhere else should we travel to Puerto Rico again.
