Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Cangrejo Arriba

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

No doubt about it, staying in the Isla Verde area of San Juan is the place to be! This is just not a rental property for me, it is my second home, and was my primary home for many years. Just knowing that after a day of travel, your vacation home destination is just less than ten minutes away, once you arrive at Puerto Rico's International airport in San Juan, takes the stress away.

The apartment is lovely! What is so unique is that it is on the third floor! The view of the ocean and beach are in perfect line to the living room and dinning room. This amazing view just flows right into the beautiful decor of your home away from home.

There are oil paintings throughout. It is elegantly furnished, with Rattan furniture in the living room and dining area. Anyone who comes over, immediately falls in love with the place. Everyone who has stayed, always returns. I also have an amazing Apartment Manager. He is there for whatever needs and questions you may have.

There are Hunter ceilings fans throughout. Air conditioning in the bedrooms. The apartment has been freshly painted with rich and bright colors such as reds, greens, and yellows. The bathroom is a newly renovated all Italian marble walk-in shower spa. It is located in between both bedrooms. The toilet and shower area can be made separate to the powder room, for dual person access. Closing one of the doors from a bedroom, becomes private to the next if you so desire.

There is a beautiful reading room in the lobby with beach views. Security, and Office Administration is also located in the lobby. Pool is located in the back of the building and is private to the guests at the Racquet Club.

There is a parking space available if you decide to rent a car. The car rental place I recommend is Charlie Car Rental, located just blocks away and open 24 hours, as well as a 24 hour Walgreens with a pharmacy.

Chairs and Umbrellas can be rented right outside in front of the building. A discount is given to those guests staying at the Racquet Club Condominium. And right downstairs is a bar/restaurant that serves great burgers to great fish salads, rice & beans and mofongo.

This vast beach strip that you will be residing at gives you the luxury of walking to restaurants, shopping, 5-Star Hotel and Casinos, and Live entertainment. Great Day and Night-Life always at your disposal.

Washer and Dryers are located on every even numbered floor. Machine money cards are available in the lobby next to the Administrator's office.

About The Owner

I am a Broadcast Technical Director and Screenwriter. Mainly write mainstream Latino Films. I am an avid traveler, and enjoy different cultures, as well as, art and art history. I also own other properties that I rent out and am very in-tune to what makes guests feel happy. Prior to being in the Broadcasting field, I worked in hospitalities for the Caribe Hilton in Puerto Rico. Making my knowledge even greater in providing fine comforts in one's vacation.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1987

Why The Owner chose Puerto Rico

Actually, this rental property is actually my second home and treat it that way regardless of rentals. I lived in Puerto Rico for almost five years in the late eighties at the Racquet Club. This area is very special to me in all that it offers. So close to the airport, it's fabulous location and magical beach!

What makes this condo unique

What I find that is most unique, is the offer of having best of both worlds! Relaxation or being in one of the centers of Puerto Rico's great day and night-life! The freedom of being able to walk to all sorts of sporting, shopping, dining, casinos, night-clubs, entertainment and pampering possibilities is just enormous!

Perfect location! Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I really enjoyed staying here! We were able to arrange a meeting to get the keys easily and everything we needed for a comfortable stay was provided. We were able to go grocery shopping nearby and stock the fridge to make meals at home. The apartment was clean and we received our security deposit back in full. The access to the beach was so convenient and the view from the living room is stunning! I definitely would stay here again.

Excellent view and the Apt has everthing you need

  • 5 of 5

The location of this apartment was excellent! It was only a 10 min ride from the airport and the condition was very good. There is plenty of cookware for making your own meals (although the restaurant downstairs is good too). There are plenty of towels and utensils and the apartment was nice and clean. We look forward to returning. The building is very secure and safe, and the pool is clean and clear.

Great condo and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place located in the middle of Isle Verde.

Yvonne was quick to reply and kept in touch throughout the entire process and stay.

Francisco was waiting for us upon arrival with the keys and when he met us to pick up the keys he drove us back to the airport.

We will be back.

Thanks Yvonne!

Location is great!

  • 4 of 5

We took a girls trip from 2/11/16 - 2/16/16 and overall enjoyed our stay here.

Pros: The location can't be beat. The beach is literally just steps away.

Everything is within walking distance; restaurants, grocery store, hotels/casinos.

The owner is extremely helpful and answers all your questions enthusiastically and in a timely manner.

The bedding in the rooms are very comfortable and we slept great.

The condo has all the essentials to make home cooked meals; seasonings, plates, pans, toaster, coffee maker, cups, etc. However, we ended up eating out most of the time we were there. The food in Puerto Rico is delicious!

Cons: And really the only con.. The condo is on the 3rd floor and some of the views are obstructed. You couldn't really take in a moment while enjoying the view with the balcony door open, because of the crowd from the restaurant and bars right below the condo. I would have preferred a higher floor, with a better view. But that is my personal preference. This is still a great condo in a great location.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay!

There are so many things to do on this beautiful island. El Yunque Rainforest was breathtakingly beautiful! There is a quaint little place called Mi Vida Cafe by el Yunque with AMAZING food! Must try.

Culebra beach was also GORGEOUS! Must see!

If you take the ferry off Fajardo, get there EARLY! We got there around 6:30am, and there was already a long line.

Owner's Response: It is so helpful to get such wonderful and thoughtful feedback. Thank you for taking the time, which becomes so important in helping others to choose their home while away. It is the first time however, that anyone ever wrote views are obstructed. In a higher floor, the only view would be of the sky while in the apartment. It is rare that one can sit in a living room or dining room, and have the amazing and constant view of the beach and ocean as if it were coming right into the apartment. In any of the higher floors one would have to walk to the main window to look out and see the view. The Racquet Club no doubt, sits in the hub of the beautiful Isla Verde beach and is the closest building to the beach of the entire strip. Guest is correct in saying you are only steps away. It was my sincere pleasure as well as Francisco, the apartment manager to have such lovely guests. May too much time not go by before your return stay in beautiful Puerto Rico. Thank you so much for your kind attention always!

Beautiful view!!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 had a wonderful time in Puerto Rico. Yvonne is always available to answer your questions. When we arrived we only got one key and it was a little inconvenient because we were there with our 2 grown kids. Made it difficult to do different things because we always had to be back at the same time. Condo was clean with everything you need to feel at home. This condo is in a great location within walking distance of multiple restaurants. Beautiful ocean front but no balcony. Lots of things to do on the beach right in front of the condo. Activities are a little pricey so make sure you have plenty of money to experience everything you have time for. Would like to have had more comfortable living room furniture to relax in after a long day at the beach or exploring. I would suggest to rent a car for a couple days to explore the island. The bus isn't really a good option ... too much wait time! The rental place is just a couple blocks walking from the condo. No need to have one your full stay. You must experience Ziplining by the Rain Forest! We had a wonderful time and if we return to Puerto Rico I would consider staying here again!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write of your experience. I had no idea about the ONE key set. I cannot stress and can't agree more with the inconvenience of this. As for the living room furniture it is antique Rattan, that has been restored and restored. You are now the second person that has brought this issue up to me and thank you for it. Also welcome the activity recommendations. It was an absolute pleasure to have you, and hope not too much time goes by before you return to the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. Warmest regards and cheers! Yvonne

Our New Home in Puetro Rico!

  • 5 of 5

We needed to get away with our two teenaged boys to have some family time during the busy holiday season and this did the trick! The picture of the view does not give it justice, it's truly something to experience. Yvonne is so helpful and caring. She gave us many ideas of how to celebrate Christmas (actually our son's birthday) in Puerto Rico and called be sure we had a good time. Francisco was helpful in making sure we could find everything we needed in the apartment and the area. He also checked in with us during our stay. The building is safe and walking is the best way to get around the area. This is ideal as I could get up early to enjoy a morning swim, run or stroll with my husband while the teens slept. Then we all had brunch in the apt and enjoyed the day on the beach. The restaurants downstairs are fine, we didn't need their bars as we had our own only three flights up! We rented a car for one day so we could hike EL Yunque and explore that area of the island. We left planning our next visit to what we hope to become a family tradition. Thank you for everything Yvonne and Francisco!
