Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Isla Verde - Ricomar

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Queen bed + futon, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Best Location! Unforgettable view!

When we first stepped in the apartment we just couldn't believe how beautiful the view is! It is amazing.

We completely remodeled the apartment and it is now a jewel.

Comfortable, beautifully decorated one bedroom surrounded by two of the most beautiful beaches in San Juan. This apartment is ON the water; no side views or views from afar. The beach IS there! The view is breathtaking and the soothing sounds of the beach waves keep you company 24/7. Absolutely no traffic! Just waves!! Miles of sandy beach surround the apartment. The Isla Verde beach is on one side (where the El San Juan Hotel is), and the quieter beach of the Ritz Carlton is on the other side. Both beaches are very long and have water sports and chair rentals. So, if you like walking or jogging on the sand, water sports, swimming or just want to enjoy an endless summer view this is the place to stay. The apartment is perfect for two guests. The kitchen is fully equipped. It has a full bathroom with shower. The bedroom has a queen bed and there is 1 full size futon in the living room. Black-out curtains and roll-up shades in rooms for a perfect sleep, too. There is a reserved parking spot inside the gated property. Rate includes cable TV and high speed wi-fi.

Google 'Punta El Medio', Isla Verde for the exact location.

Catch the public bus (very close) and go to Condado and Old San Juan for just .75 cents! Recommended!

About Lourdes

I love ocean views! This is why I love this property.

Lourdes purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Lourdes chose Isla Verde

When I first stepped in the apartment I just couldn't believe how beautiful the view is! It is amazing.

We completely remodeled the apartment and it is now a jewel. It is on the beach and next to one of my favorite restaurants in all of San Juan. You, like me, will love to relax in this cute restaurant/bar next door with a wonderful deck and great hamburgers and mofongos!

What makes this apartment unique

Quiet hideaway: We are on a quiet street. Close to everything but far from the traffic and noise of Ave. Isla Verde. Our beachfront is quiet. The only thing you will hear are the waves...

Punta El Medio (also known as Biascoechea) in Isla Verde! The most beautiful beaches at your step!

Things to do: Walking distance from the apartment there are hotels, casinos, a Walgreens and lots of restaurants. Pueblo Supermarket is a five minute ride in car away. Next to the apartment there is a nice restaurant with a spectacular view (the same one you will see from thel apartment) with a deck where you can relax, listen to music, eat or just have a drink. This apartment cannot be beat!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented the place for a 9 day vacation and were pleasantly surprised that it was actually ON the water and close to everything the ad described and more! The view is breathtaking and the place is close enough to supermarkets, beaches w/ ammenities and the VIEW..(OMG). I would like to thank our hosts for such a beautiful space and the prompt hospitality of Mr. Arnold. Everything we needed and more.. we shall return. Have you ever stayed somewhere and wished it was your own? this place is it. lol Anyone who stays here will have the same experience, we are sure. Again, thank you to our hosts and Mr. Arnold for the experience.

Everything it says it is

  • 5 of 5

This is a really good one. When in this 5th-floor apartment, we kept the windows open to the sounds of ocean and constant ocean breeze--a truly immersive experience. The location is also very convenient. An easy bus ride to old town, and convenient to car rental locations, bicycle rental, etc. Perfect for a 10th anniversary celebration.

the view. my god, the view.

  • 5 of 5

The spectacular view is clearly what sells this apartment. We took several breaks just to lean out the window and absorb the view. I looked at many other places and did hours of research. In the end I just couldn't get away from this view. I paid more than I wanted to for it, but I have no regrets. We were celebrating our 10th anniversary and 30 years from now we won't remember that I paid $150 more for this place than some other place I was considering, but we’ll remember the view. The apt. building must be at least 60 years old. It’s a place real people live in, not a hotel or condo place where tourists like me come to stay. It was a very quiet building. We only saw 2 other people the whole time we were there and one of them was Arnold, the 'facilitator'. Arnold lets you in when you arrive. All of the doors on each apartment were really old & each one unique. Some of them had heavy security gates in front of them, which I found strange since the building itself seemed very secure. A key is required for the man gate, or a buzzer to get in if you have a car, and another sep. key to get in the bldg. No bad peeps from the neighborhood getting in here. It was VERY clean. Besides the amazing view, the actual proximity to the ocean is crazy. At high tide I basically stood in the ocean and put my hand on the building at the same time. There is no beach directly behind the building, but there is plenty on either side, and the sand is some of the softest sand I have ever been on.

We didn’t rent a car (so we didn't need the reserved parking spot or garage buzzer). This was a HUGE mistake in hindsight. We relied on taxis to get around San Juan and we got completely ripped off by them. The listing talks about a bus stop nearby, and there is a bus stop right by the walgreens down the street, (<5 minute walk). My research about public transportation in San Juan said it was very unreliable so I don't know how useful the proximity to the bus stop really is unless you are familiar with San Juan and the bus system (we were not familiar at all). The windows are tinted but we went for a night ocean swim and noticed people in the ocean could see what you are doing if the blinds are not closed at night. During the day no one can see in. The local cockfighting arena is by Walgreens, along with several dining options. We opened the windows and let the sounds of the ocean put us to sleep each night. Very open breezy apartment, and comfy bed.

We would definitely stay here again

Second time around

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay at this wonderful apartment and I loved it as much as the first time. It is cozy, comfortable and has everything I need to feel at home. The view is spectacular and the sound of the ocean lulls you into relaxation the minute you walk into the apartment.

As I stated before, this will be my home in PR each time I visit.

Beautiful view and incredible location!

  • 4 of 5

My review would be 5 stars but the only complaint we had was the comfort of the bed. Everything else was perfect! Right next to the beach and easy access. Felt incredibly safe and loved the area. They were very accommodating as our flight didn't arrive until midnight. The condo was very clean and nicely updated, had everything we needed. Thank you very much we loved it!

Absolutely incredible with BREATHTAKING view!

  • 5 of 5

I have never used VRBO.com, airbnb.com, or anything like that. I was very nervous about the whole process and feared that what I saw wouldn't be what I got, or that it was a scam. I chose this place because there were 32 reviews averaging 4.5 star reviews and the pictures were gorgeous. What you see in pictures doesn't even begin to compare to how STUNNING it truly is in person. I can't believe that people around us were paying twice as much (at minimum) to have a place with no kitchen and no view! The beaches surrounding us were great, and it's very convenient to many restaurants, stores, etc. old San Juan is only 15 minutes away though traffic can be bad at times, and the rain forest, snorkeling, etc. is just about 45 minutes from the condo. La playita has an aweome drink called the Coco Loco and is right next to the condo - check it out! The food is really great as well. Mr. Morel was such a sweetheart and it's great that he lives in the condo complex as well in case we need anything (which we didn't). I did wish that the place had a dish washer as I don't like don't dishes by hand, but that's no big burden, and you can always eat out more or use plastic/paper plates and cups to fix that. I just can't rave about this place enough and we can't wait to come back! My boyfriend and I took this trip together and it's perfect for a couple looking to get away. You would be silly to pay more for a place without this view!

Miles of sandy beach surround the apartment. It is located in 'la punta del medio' or 'Biascoechea' in Isla Verde. The Isla Verde beach is on one side (where the El San Juan Hotel is), and the more quiet beach of the Ritz Carlton is on the other side. Both beaches are very long and have water sports rentals available.

We are on a quiet street. Close to everything but far from the traffic and noise of Ave. Isla Verde. Our beachfront is also quiet. The only thing you will hear are the waves...

Walking distance from the apartment there are hotels, a Walgreens and lots of restaurants. Pueblo Supermarket is a five minute ride in car away. Next to the apartment there is a nice restaurant with a spectacular view (the same one you will see from the apartment) with a deck where you can relax.
