Lovely place with management challenges

  • 3 out of 5
My husband and I stayed at this property after staying at another property belonging to the same owner. We found some things to be the same and others very different. Both properties are very well remodeled and with thoughtful touches and nice quality furnishings. It seems that the difference is in 2 areas, key exchange and housekeeping. Due to the design of the building, the only way to get the keys is to meet with a person. We feel that the owner/manager put the wrong person in charge of the exchange of keys. We spent too much of our vacation time trying to figure out how to get the keys and when a time was set to meet, the housekeeper did not keep her word. Judging by her unprofessional-ism on the phone, the writing was on the wall and we were not completely surprised when she did not show with the keys. The owner wound up having to leave a family engagement to bring us the keys. It was slightly frustrating, but worked out in the end. The owner was friendly and it seemed as if this may not have been the first time that this happened. After a long morning in San Juan, we just wanted to start relaxing. Our second issue was with the cleanliness of the condo. To be honest with you, we had high expectations for cleanliness because of how wonderful this owner's other property is kept. We found this unit to have dirty knives in the drawer, hair in the bed, unswept floors, and grimy surfaces in the bathroom. The fridge contained a glass full of some beverage, which we wound up leaving there. I don't know if this was just a bad day for the housekeeper or if others have had this problem. We had to look for bathroom towels in the closet and found only part of them. The rest were up in a basket and we couldn't tell if they were clean or dirty. I would recommend reviewing the housekeeper's work and adding a mattress cover to the bed in addition to putting someone in charge of the key exchange who will be reliable, consistent and professional. As guests we pay $60-$75 cleaning fee for condo rentals. It is a reasonable expectation that we receive the condo in unquestionably clean condition.

Owner's Response: Thank you for all the recommendations. All points have been taken care of. We now have the housekeeper that cleans int he other Luquillo units.

Also, the checkin and checkout process was changed and therefore, does not rely on someone delivering the keys. Now, we have installed a lockbox on the outside of the complex with a 4 digit code, so guests can pick up the keys whenever they arrive, even at 2AM, etc. That is a huge improvement for the easiness of our guests.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 out of 5
Our trip was absolutely wonderful! If I had anything to complain about, it would be our trip was too short! Waking up and going to sleep hearing the waves crash against the shore was incredibly relaxing. The condo was cleaned very well with upgrades and any amenities needed to be comfortable. We've been vrbo renters since the 90's and the comfort of this one tops them all. We are definitely planning another trip in the not so far future. My husband and I enjoyed our anniversary to the fullest. Thank you to the owmer and management of this unit. G&G

Great condo, poor management

  • 3 out of 5
First, let me say that this is a very nice condo. The bed was comfortable, the view was fantastic and the beach chairs/cart/luggage stands were a nice touch. Great kitchen--we cooked breakfast and enjoyed espressos every morning. As a property/location by itself, I'd give it 5 stars.

Our problem was with the management. The stated check-in time was 3pm and we arrived in PR at 3:30pm. I called "Kelly" from the airplane to let them know we were on our way: No answer. I called Carmen at the backup number and was told that the maid was on her way. No problem we thought, we can just go to the store and get groceries and meet her afterwards. After numerous phone calls both to Kelly and Carmen, Kelly finally showed up at 6:45pm. We literally sat in our car, in the dark, for 2 hours waiting for her to show up with the keys. Not a good way to start our supposedly relaxing vacation.

When leaving, we were supposed to meet Kelly at 1:15pm to hand back the keys, but she called at the last minute saying she was in the hospital and couldn't make it. We had to go down to the parking lot, open the electronic gate with the remote, then go back upstairs to lock the door and throw the keys through a small window.

I try to be a reasonable person. I understand that problems can happen--traffic, car accidents, hospital visits, etc. But if the key delivery process has a single point of failure, perhaps the owners should look into alternative ways to deliver the keys/instructions and/or have a backup plan. No HomeAway property owner should ever leave their guests sitting in a car in a dark, unfamiliar neighborhood for hours. It's just inexcusable. I'm taking 2 full stars off my rating just for the frustration this caused.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 4 out of 5
As a couple, we were looking for a very particular setting, in which to celebrate my husband's birthday, as well as other things. This apartment was designed with couples who really enjoy each other's company in mind. The space and its amenities are inviting, cozy and comfortable. From the minute one walks in, the full ocean view captivates your sight; and you can think of nothing else but about relaxing and enjoying each second. It's like you are on a cruise in a rather large cabin, with a superb balcony. My favorites were the foldable glass window 'wall' off the balcony, and the unique shower. We 'folded' open the balcony window wall early in the morning and at night. It was awesome! The location of the apartment is very convenient, with establishments of all sorts all around you. No need to even leave the area during your stay. We have already said we'd definitely go back; and plan to tell our family and friends about this perfect 'home away from home', in the heart of Isla Verde, Puerto Rico!!!👍👍

Enjoyable Experience

  • 4 out of 5
My overall experience was great. The owners and housekeeper are very attentive and accommodating. At first site when we pulled up to the condo, I was a little concerned of the appearance of the building itself, but once we went into the actual apartment it is just as it appears in the photos and the view of the ocean is fantastic. Location is also very convenient, able to walk to many of the local restaurants, stores and hotels/casinos. Really enjoyed out stay.

FAB SPOT

  • 5 out of 5
This is a great property. The unit itself looks just like the pictures and was clean and very nice. It has a wonderful view and the walk to the beach is so close, just out a couple of doors. We didn't have a car and walked to nearby restaurants and resorts. There is a city bus close also if you want to explore other areas. This place is a keeper!
