About Maureen A Bush
I was born and raised in NJ. In 2006 our youngest of 5 children left our home to attend College. My husband and I were avid boaters and decided to move full time to Hilton Head Island, SC. We spend the winters in Miami Beach aboard Turangalila. In the summer time, our boat is docked nearby our home in Hilton Head. We have always loved Puerto Rico and for many years, it was the only place I looked forward to getting away to. Now, we spend a lot less time in the Caribbean. Too much to see...too little time!
Maureen A Bush purchased this Condo in 1991
Why Maureen A Bush chose Isla Verde
My husband and I purchased this fabulous condo so that we could take family vacations, be guaranteed warm weather and all be together. For many years, we travelled with our 5 children and reserved 3 hotel rooms in resort areas. Our children were so excited to be in a 'hotel' they never wanted to leave the room. It wasn't fun eating all of our meals out in restaurants. Once we made the decision to purchase Puerto Rico, our family trips have been wonderful memories. As the children grew older, married and had babies of their own, we have started another tradition, enjoying our condo with them and my grandchildren. We are serious boaters and now spend most of our non-working time on the water. We decided to share our apartment in Puerto Rico with others who will appreciate the beauty of the island as much as we once did. For now, renting it short-term to many people has given me a lot of satisfaction. I love this place and its great to know that I can always come back to it.
What makes this Condo unique
I will always love the beauty of the island. Puerto Rico offers the most diversity of any of the Caribbean islands. From touring the rain-forest, spending a day exploring the Forts of Old San Juan, experiencing eco-tours on bioluminescent bays, visiting beautiful beaches all over the island, swinging off ropes into the deep waters below the waterfalls, accepting the challenge of viewing the petroglyphs at El hippie Pool and La Canoa Falls, to fine dining, fancy shopping, dancing the nights away, gambling in the Casino's, sky-diving etc. There is so much or so little to do. Whatever suits you is all you need to have the most wonderful vacation!

Beautiful views from every room, Apartment was fabulous!
Marbella is an excellent Condo on the longest and best stretch of beach in Isla Verde. This particular place had the most incredible views, most awesome breeze and was so easily accessible to all of our favorite beach restaurants. I would totally recommend PH2 to anyone looking for an amazing get away to Puerto Rico! The Condo featured brand new bedding in the master and 2nd bedroom, everything was clean and well maintained, although, dated appliances, everything was in great working condition and the manager, Franklin was hands on and ready to assist wherever necessary!
We just got back from a wonderful stay at Maureen's apartment in San Juan. We booked travel plans to Puerto Rico before the hurricane and had difficulty negotiating a refund from the airline, so we decided to go ahead with our visit. Isla Verde, the beach where this condo is, is beautiful, with families and tourists alike visiting. Old San Juan is also up and running. The condo is exactly as advertised, clean, and comfortable. Maureen is very responsive and helpful, and always answered questions very promptly. When bad weather hit the NYC area as we were returning, Maureen kindly reached out to us and offered to let us return to the apartment should our flights get canceled.
Amazing place to stay
Me and my 3 boys which are all adults stayed at Maureen's place the last week in July. If you are reading reviews and can't decide weather you are choosing the right place, well you are. I consider my self picky with things. In general. Everything about this place has met my expectations. This penthouse has everything you will need for cooking to beach supplies even has a washer and dryer in the unit with laundry soap, she has thought of everything to make your stay easy and enjoyable. There was 4 of us and Maureen had enough beach chairs for all of us. If you have small children she even has beach toys. This penthouse was very spacious, with 2 1/2 baths makes getting ready for dinner quick and easy. The place was very clean and had amazing views from the bedrooms and a huge balcony. Maureen was very accommodating, my flights had a early arrival and a late departure time which she was able to get me early check in and later check out. I honestly cannot think of anything negative about Maureen or her penthouse. Even the location is perfect right in the middle of everything. I have traveled to many places and stayed in all types of rooms, this is definitely at the top of my favorites. I tried to keep this short but I could go on with how nice Maureen is and her penthouse. You will not regret choosing this place for your vacation, all the staff were very friendly. Thank you Maureen for making my stay at your place a great experience. I will recommend it to anyone who asks me where to stay in Puerto Rico.
Thanks for your awesome review!
We just got back from an amazing weekend in Puerto Rico! Our penthouse condo was the highlight of our trip! The view from the condo is breath taking. We had the sliders and windows open all weekend so we could enjoy the amazing ocean breeze. The condo gave us plenty of room to spread out but also enjoy each other.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to cook meals. We cooked every breakfast and most lunches home before heading out for the night. It was very relaxing sitting on the patio with our breakfast, coffee, and ocean view.
Our days were spent on the beach. We were provided with beach chairs, umbrellas, and coolers. There were a few restaurants in walking distance, right on the sand, that we visited for lunch. We did not even need to leave the beach! On Sundays, there were venders on the beach that sold food and drinks.
Charlie’s Car Rental was conveniently right across the street. While renting a car, we were able to see El Yunque and Old San Juan. At night, we took Uber to Old San Juan to enjoy the night life and the sunset at the fort.
There are also a lot of restaurants and clubs in walking distance to the condo. Maureen was very helpful, offering a lot of suggestions for places to eat and adventures on the island. We had a very memorable vacation and would absolutely suggest this condo to anyone who wants a fun but relaxing vacation. It was perfect for us!
Thank you for sharing your wonderful experiences with the entire HomeAway family! I'm glad you and your girls had such a great trip!
Stunning views, great relaxation, Best Winter Vacation
Penthouse apartment is spacious and cozy at the same time. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you can possibly need to cook a gourmet meal, if cooking is your thing! The ocean breezes are phenomenal! The Condo is in Marbella Este, a very secure, safe and clean building on the beach in Isla Verde. Many delicious restaurants are walking distance. The ocean water is so warm and inviting. Beach chairs, umbrella, towels are all provided. Definitely the nicest beach in all of San Juan. We cannot wait to go again next year with our young grandson!
