About Karen Adan

I am an interior design architect with a pasion for cooking. I remodeled and preserved this house built in 1945 with the goal of recreating a small italian villa for my own private use, the house was never intended to be a rental, that is why is so amazing.

Karen Adan purchased this house in 2002

A Treasure Villa that Exceeds all Your Hopes for A Hassle Free Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying that Karen & Pablo will insure you have every creature comfort and little luxuries that keep putting a smile on your families faces. A beautiful private Garden with your own pool , waterfalls and landscaping create that relaxing feeling of seclusion. We were blessed to have our 3 married children with their excellent spouses, along to keep us active and laughing. Our family of 8 adults definitely used the gourmet kitchen, dining room ,private bedroom suites and of course the pool constantly, as informal get together spots daily. The beach, lagoon, great dining , shopping and even casinos were always only blocks away. Everyone did whatever made them the happiest and we would regroup at the Villa often.

As a Super Special treat, we hired Nilda, a private gourmet chef to shop, prepare and serve us all a 12 course , 6 hour meal at the villa, with 2 of the most personal touches assistants to help the feast flow effortlessly. Get a true Puerto Rican dining delight on your schedule. Nilda and her staff are Top Notch. Pablo or Karen will happily hook you up. Nilda and I had a blast preparing the custom menu over the phone and Gmail before we ever arrived. Again, hassle free.

Karen & Pablo even personally stocked our house with a custom food & beverage order , ready upon arrival. The small fee is so very worth it.

If you cannot have a truly memorable ,stress free, vacation in this Luxury, Condado Villa, then you take Life much too seriously.

This Villa is a Score!! Life is short, Play Hard and Appreciate all Puerto Rico has to offer.

adjoining bedrooms

  • 4 of 5

This rental is in a great location. We were able to easily walk to the shopping and restaurants in Condado. The house is very large and the gardens are very nice. The house is very secure with an entry gate for the parking area. The pool was cool as it in the shade most of the day. We ran out of toilet paper and paper towels but I was told that I should have texted Karen and let her know as there were supplies in a locked closet. There were 8 adults in this rental. There are two sets of connecting bedrooms sharing a bath. It is necessary to go through one bedroom to get to another, so if you are 8 couples that may be an issue. We really enjoyed our stay and I would recommend this rental Everything we needed was there including towels for the beach. Good place to stay for families and couples. Nice location and actually, when you run the the numbers, it is a good price.

Could not have been happeir

  • 5 of 5

This home was awesome and the hosts were great. 15 guys on bachelor party had plenty of space and enough beds and bathrooms. The home was as described if not better. Having them do our food/drink shopping before we arrived was such a great plus saving us headache and time. Would definitely stay here agian!

Exceeded All Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We felt like royalty at "The Villa"! The house exceeded all our expectations. We were 5 couples in town for a wedding. The cost was way more affordable that the hotels in the area. We had so much space, each couple had their own room, and the bathrooms were insanely gorgeous! The Rain Shower in the master King room was superb. We never felt crowded. Best part? The backyard with pool, bar and seating. AMAZING! We loved relaxing back there and felt like we were in our own little oasis. Completely private and secure. I could go on and on. Karen and Pablo were easy and great to work with. A few couple got stranded due to weather in the Northeast and Karen easily accommodate them for a few more nights. We cant wait to go back!

Wonder Time

  • 4 of 5

We came for a destination wedding with a party of 16 and were not disappointed. Eight parents and eight kids. Well our kids are all in their mid 20's. It was clean, spacious and we loved the outdoor living space and pool. Karen was very attentive and prompt in responding to any questions.

Uncleaned, Non-Maintained, Would not recommend !!

  • 1 of 5

DISAPPOINTMENT!!! This home when we arrived was not cleaned properly, pool was dirty, this old home needs a lot of maintenance. I was fooled with the pictures shown. My family of eight did not want to stay in this house I booked for the week, neither did I, so we stayed at a near by hotel and spent less, booking three rooms. My security deposit was not sent back, nor was the cleaning fee, with us not staying in this house, didn't have to be cleaned. We stayed at another house before checking into this one, two hours away from this Condado home and had a much better experience. We wouldn't recommended this property to anyone we know, including whom ever reads this review!! We were very disappointed in what we saw in person, based on pictures. To be honest I wouldn't have given it any stars!!

Owner's Response: We are really sorry that your experience was so different from the universe of customers we have serviced through time, as you can read from customers reviews posted very near from your staying dates, all of them awarding the house and their stay a high rating. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I can understand that not all of our clients travel the world or are cultural and knowledgeable of what a Mediterranean style means, what antique and vintage reflects or for an instance are in touch on a daily basis with natural materials like marble, granite and bronze that have special characteristic that may be confused with dirt and not patina in the case of the bronze, or with stains and not veins and color patterns in the case of marble and granite. We give maintenance and inspect directly our house and premises and are very strict at time of delivery, no exceptions. The concept of VRBO is a home away from home, some minimum tolerance has to be engaged in the mind of the reasonable and prudent man, always there is a space to improve, no property is 100% perfect because nothing in the world is.
