Nice in pictures, barebones reality.

Pluses first:

-Nicer looking, new tiles, renovated
-Decent beds, not super comfy or uncomfy
-Good AC units in bedroom

Detractors

Beds came with two pillows and one sheet. That's it. When I sleep, I tend to get extremely overheated, and need it a cooler room, or I have a lot of problems sleeping. My wife is the exact opposite. The usual solution is to have the AC on enough that I can sleep with just a sheet, and she can use the blanket. However, no blankets. In either room. When I brought this up to Nancy she said our only solution is to turn down the AC and make the room warmer. Not exactly a solution. We ended up buying a blanket and extra pillows at walmart. No soap or toilet paper (aside from 1/10 of a roll) in the apartment either. Had to buy some.

No laundry facilities. Most condos I have stayed at have at least a washer that you can use to wash towels and other clothing. Staying over a week? Keep that in mind. We were there for a week, and by the end of the trip the towels were definitely needing a wash.

No beach towels at the beginning of the trip, Nancy brought a few by when we inquired. No beach chairs or coolers. We ended up buying a few from walmart and left them.

Windows do not fully close (just slats that tilt). Mosquitos can get in and all of us had new bites every morning.

The tv doesn't have a dvd player, but it does have netflix on it. Awesome. The internet however was so spotty that it made it almost impossible to watch anything for longer than 30 sec at a time between buffering. Not awesome.

No stove the first night. They did bring by a portable propane camp stove the end of the second day to use the rest of the week, so we could cook things one pan at a time. Ok in a pinch, but not impressive.

The final thing that detracted was that we were charged for "stained towels, washcloths, and a pillowcase". For a total of $40.00. They included pictures, but we were unable to tell if they were actually stained, or just hadn't been washed yet. We would have happily washed and bleached them ourselves (given, you know, you can actually bleach white cloth- what a miracle) before leaving, but no laundry facilities.

Sum up, the place looks good in pictures, but is an extremely barebones experience. Ended up having to spend quite an additional bit of money just to get enough to make it comfortable enough for a week stay. Would not stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thomas thanks again for staying at our condo. For those of you readying this I would like to respond to a few comments made by Thomas as I think 2 stars is a little harsh when a lot of the things he complains about he knew before renting the condo. The condo doesn't have a washer and dryer; why he would expect one I don't know because we don't advertise one because it doesn't exist. Thomas had the option of using a cleaning service we provide instead he decided to use the same towels and sheets the whole week. Unfortunately the stove broke during the stay which was foreseen as it was only 3 years old. We provided a temporary fix while a new one was purchased. The oven is not your conventional size oven as a normal size one will not fit in the available space. That being said it wasn't easy finding one but a new one has been installed. Problem fixed. Puerto Rico has an average temperature in the mid 80s so we do not provide large blankets we ask guest to lower the AC temperature if it's cold as your in control of the cold temperature it's not coming from outside. Personal belonging are not provide in this rental as we inform all our guest and is also in the rental agreement that you sign to get this property. Personal items include tooth paste, deodorant, tooth brush, soap, hair product and toilet paper (we do leave a roll of toilet paper in case you arrive in a hurry and haven't made a trip to the grocery store). The condo doesn't have beach chairs or coolers and again we don't advertise that these are provided. Lastly we can't give future guest stained linens. So if you caused permanent damage to the linens you get a bill. This is standard practice anywhere you rent. For those of you curious what we do with damaged lines we don't keep them for ourselves they get donated to the homeless or sent to dog shelters.
For those of you looking for a more luxurious rental we also have them. Check out our 5 bedroom home that was recently feature on ABC's television show Sweet Retreats. Property # 474645

Spring Break trip

Great for the price! Rented a car and it was not too far from San Juan. Nancy, the property manager, responded quickly to all of our questions. It was very convenient to have a kitchen available on vacation. We definitely saved money on food.
