About Judy Buck

I am from Cape May, New Jersey and have been coming to the beautiful island of Puerto Rico for well over 30 years. I have had the privilege to share this home with my parents for many years. My parents wintered here and loved Puerto Rico. They are both deceased but their memory lives on in this special condo in the ESJ Towers. In January 2015 a new master bath room was installed which is handicap accessible. Our condo is one of the most beautiful in the ESJ with a new hall bath and new kitchen and stainless appliances that was completed in 2008 and 2009. My parents prided themselves on making their condo beautiful. Our apartment was a 3 bedroom that was converted to a 2 bedroom. Unlike other units here ours offers a large formal living/dining area and a comfy rec room with a 47' flat screen tv. Our family has enjoyed many years in Puerto Rico and we're sure you will too. The second unit is right next door to other unit - remodeled in Spring of 2016. Features new TV's, new furniture and appliances, new bedding, dishes, pots and pans. Unit boasts 2bedrooms and 1.5 baths with ocean view. Very bright and airy.

Judy Buck purchased this condo in 2001

Why Judy Buck chose Sabana Abajo

My parents vacationed on this wonderful island for over 30 years before settling in San Juan in the Isla Verde section of town. They loved the convenience of the night life, restaurants, beach, grocery store and airport. The ESJ Towers are in the heart of everything and just a short drive to Old San Juan and south towards Fajardo and Carolina. Before my parents purchased their condo they vacationed at the ESJ for several years. The were sold on the ESJ because of the many amenities that are offered. They especially liked that the ESJ is gated and has 24 hour security - an added benefit to any property. The staff is exceptional and very accommodating.

What makes this condo unique

My family always enjoys what Puerto Rico has to offer and how easy it is to take advantage of while in the ESJ Towers. There is a concierge located right in building! We have taken trips west to see the Taino Indian Ceremonial grounds, visited Rincon, the phosphorescent bay, Ponce, snorkeled and dived in Fajardo, toured Ponce de Leons house in Old San Juan and ate at 5 star restaurants and shopped at our favorite mall 'the Plaza of the Americas'. The new Mall of San Juan will be opening March of 2015 and is conveniently located a short drive away. The Forts in Old San Juan are spectacular and educational! We have taken advantage of all this island has and hope you will as well.

It is so easy to get there from the states. USAir and American have several direct flights from many states in the US. Once you arrive in San Juan you are just 5 minutes from your beach vacation.

Best of all Puerto Rico is 86 degrees most 365 days of the year - unlike some frosty southern states in January and February and only 1 more hour by plane!

Everything needed in one location, clean beautiful condo, relaxing beach & pool, great for families.

  • 5 of 5

Condo had everything needed when we arrived, then quick trip to grocery store about 1 block away and we were set for the week. Inside decorations were lovely and the balcony was relaxing as you could hear the waves & see the beach. Staff at the ESJ were very friendly and professional. The owner Judith Buck answered all our questions before and during our stay. She was always friendly and helpful with our trip and maintains her condo unit 176 perfectly. Also, having a private parking space was awesome - never stressed where we could park after site seeing or spending time with family in Gurabo and returning late at night. Puerto Rico is full of many sites and the people were all so friendly. We love it there and can’t wait to return.

We enjoyed every second at this beautiful condo. It was very clean and spacious. The owner was very attentive and sensitive to making our stay the best. I would highly recommend this condo to any family who wishes to experience the best of San Juan.

Condo in ESJ Azul -owner, location, views and amenities were great!

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost, the owner is top notch! After contacting several VRBO rentals, Judy was the only one who was very quick in responding to my many questions and very flexible with our arrival/departure dates. The condo itself was just as it shows in the pictures with GREAT views of the beach and palm trees with TONS of room inside. There are games like Monopoly and Scrabble to play, paddle ball, umbrella and 2 chairs for the beach. The kitchen had a crock pot, blender and lots of cooking supplies. My mother in law was wheel chair bound for the trip and this was THE PERFECT place for her. She could get in the bathroom, manage around the apartment and just sit on the balcony and watch the kids play at the beach.

As far as ESJ it is a GREAT place and most of people are very welcoming. Enjoy your time at the beach and avoid the pool is my vote. You can rent beach chairs for $4 and umbrellas for $10 a day right there. The kids enjoyed the game room. I never made it to the gym because there's a 4 mile walking "route" that I took (just exit ESJ, go towards Lupi's and take a left- it's safe no worries!!) The concierge was very helpful and friendly. We even splurged for a couple drinks on the beach from the ESJ beach bar and they were affordable and delicious.

When it comes to surrounding area you just can't beat the location of ESJ. This is our 2nd time returning to Isla Verde beach area and having the Pueblo supermarket and CVS just a few blocks away makes it so convenient. Our 2 favorite restaurants in walking distance are Metropol and Alambique(coconut rice amazing). La Sirena at the Courtyard Marriott was a lovely place and I'd like to return to try something else because the food/drinks were just ok. If you go to Old San Juan be sure to get drinks at the restaurant on the roof of Milano Hotel or try the restaurant "Raices". And please don't miss "Sandra's Point" empanadas that are right off the beach towards the Playamar condo to the east. She is there a few days a week.

Unless you want to go to El Yunque (which currently is only partially open but still worth the drive over there) you really don't need a rental car.

Wish I could make this condo my home away from home every single year! I know this is a long review but I know how much I appreciate specific hints that past travelers give in reviews!

Amazing experience during worst of times

  • 5 of 5

I contacted Judy about the availability of her (2) condos, 3 days after hurricane Maria swept across Puerto Rico. Judy responded to my emails within an hour and updated me with the condition of both or her units and the ESJ complex. She was very forth coming about what she understood to be the conditions at ESJ. She let me know from our first communication that her units had some minimal water damage and that the common areas of ESJ were on generator power, and that the condo's were with out power. Judy was hesitant to rent her units given that she was concerned with unit not being up to her standards. I told Judy that given lack of places to stay that I wanted both of her units, the agency I work with badly need accommodations for our staff that were going to be involved with hurricane recovery efforts.

Both of Judy's condo more than meet our needs. They are both "end units" which provide unobstructed views and a amazing breeze that was a blessing prior to power being restored at ESJ. Judy also let me know that inside of one of condos that there was an electrical plug that was tied into the ESJ emergency generator. Now while 95% of Puerto Rico is off the grid, I have fans and a refrigerator !!!

I have now stayed at Judy's condo for over 50 nights and could not be any more pleased with the ESJ facilities, the condos, and most importantly Judy as an owner, she would reach out every several days just to ask if there was anything she could do to help make my stay more comfortable.

I also want to quickly say thank you to some of the staff at ESJ for going above and beyond expectations. Rico, Jorge, Victor, and Paonia.

ESJ gets my A rating

Judy's condos A rating

Awesome trip to Puerto Rico!!

  • 5 of 5

As a first time traveler to Puerto Rico, I wasn't sure what to expect. Having vacationed in other places such as Mexico and Jamaica, I never felt too comfortable venturing out very far. However, this trip was not that way. I felt very safe and welcome in PR. Everyone was so helpful and friendly...especially the Uber drivers. They had great insight as to where to go and what to do in various areas of PR. The oceanfront condo we stayed in at ESJ Azul was immaculate...very roomy and clean...and a fantastic view of Isla Verde beach!! I will definitely be back to visit this beautiful place again and would love to stay in this condo again.
