Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Puerto Rico - Beach lovers paradise

Recharge, renew, and relax at my lovely 1BR Beachfront condo - CasaBels del mar

@copyright 2015 All Right Reserved

Just steps from our beachy CasaBels condo, located in San Juan's Isla Verde District await some of Puerto Rico’s greatest treasures. Stroll the sugar-sand shoreline of Isla Verde Beach, one of the most beautifully kept beaches of the San Juan, Puerto Rico area. Enjoy the shade of palm trees that line the sprawling crescent beach, or meander into one of many restaurants to nosh on mofongos and piña coladas.

Skim the turquoise waters on a jet-ski, snorkel, or stretch out for a long, languid afternoon enjoying the balmy sea breezes. As the sun begins its descent into the water, you'll hear the peaceful songs of the Coqui (Puerto Rico's native frog; pronounced "ko-kee").

*** CHARMING, WELL-KEPT ABODE WITH AMENITIES ***

After a sun-soaked day, relax in our cozy, clean condo with a light-filled living room that boasts gorgeous views of the gleaming turquoise seas that stretch to the horizon. Local art representing Puerto Rico's Spanish, African and Taino heritage capture the soul of the island, and convenient amenities like Wi-Fi, 40” flat-screen TV with cable and air-conditioning mean you can focus on watching the sun set gorgeously creating colorful skies. At the end of the day, sink into the queen-sized bed and let the ocean waves lull you into a restful Caribbean sleep.

*** TOP-NOTCH LOCATION ***

Isla Verde means “Green Island,” so named for its lush natural surroundings, and the beach is at your doorstep. Dip in the ocean, or enjoy one of Isla Verde's many water sports -- parasailing, jet skiing, or banana-boating -- or relax in the shade of the Palmetto trees that frame the water.

Just ten minutes away, the scent of rum fills the air at the Bacardi distillery: Take a tour, or stroll the cobblestone streets of historic Old San Juan, rich with European-flavored culture. And don’t miss visiting La Placita de Santurce, where twilight turns the historic plaza into a big, lively street party where everyone’s welcome. By day, it’s a farmers market, where vendors offer some of the city’s best food and drink. At night, salsa music flows into the streets as locals and visitors begin to dance to the vibrant rhythms. You’ll delight in the blend of culture, music, and energy that bursts forth from this infectious scene.

Dine at surrounding restaurants, whose menus range from tropical fare to haute cuisine. Find great shopping at fashionable high-end boutiques, or browse the mall at Plaza Las Americas. Walk through Isla Verde avenue and tour all major hotels and casinos, like the 5-star El San Juan Hotel Resort & Casino, the Ritz Carlton, the Intercontinental, the Marriott Courtyard, and Embassy Suites. Also at hand are supermarkets, small shops, convenience and drug stores, and ATMs.

*** FRIENDLY SERVICE + RESPONSIVE OWNER ***

I'm Maribel Maldonado, owner of CasaBels. I grew up spending idyllic summers in Puerto Rico, fostering a lifelong love affair with the island. In 2005, I bought a place of my own. Today, I take pride in helping you plan your Puerto Rico visit; I love answering your emails and your questions! Ask me anything about my renting my home, points of interest in the area, or my favorites places to eat. I'm happy to help make your trip great. I am passionate about my home and nothing means more to me than exceeding guests' expectations and meeting people from many parts of the world.

Visit beautiful Isla Verde to sample the sun-filled life – you just might begin to love Puerto Rico as much as I do.

Owner's Response: Helga and her husband were a pleasure to have. Their daughter and, I believe, her husband joined them the last week. We had minor issues getting the door open on check-in. Helga apologized for the inconvenience of asking me for help. What she didn't realize is that it was no inconvenience to me at all. I felt It was an inconvenience to her because she was the one on vacation. In my 11 years of renting my home, I have found that most guests don't want to bother the owners. Calling the owner or property managers for question or for a specific need while in your home is no bother at all, at least not for me. I am here to help. Thank you Helga and family for choosing my home and it was a great pleasure to have you and your family. Until the next time.

great location, beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

What a great view of the ocean! We loved sleeping with the windows open to hear the waves and feel the breeze. The condo was clean and easy to find, and the owner did a great job of communicating with us. This place was a perfect home base for us as we rented a car and took day trips to El Yunque, Luquillo, Fajardo (snorkeling in Culebra), Ponce, and Viejo San Juan. It was VERY nice to have a parking spot. We would highly recommend this property to friends and relatives, and we hope to return soon!

Owner's Response: Gracias Iris for choosing to stay in my home and for caring for it as it were your own. I would most certainly rent to Iris again. There is just one think I wanted to point out so there is no confusion for those reading. The apt does not have a balcony. It has large sliding glass door windows.
