About Dr. Claudio

We are originally from Puerto Rico and go to visit my family about 6 time per year. Currently live in the United States and work at a large hospital. We love to stay in this apartment when we come to Puerto Rico.

Dr. Claudio purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Dr. Claudio chose San Juan

We have three apartments in this same building. Why? Because of its unique ocean front location AND because it has the best pool in the neirborhood!

What makes this apartment unique

Our building is one of very few that is directly ON the beach (not across the street) AND has a swimming pool.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic experience we had in this apartment!!

First of all, making the reservation was easy and secure. Since it was the first time we stay in a rental apartment, we were nervous and had many questions. I think we sent the owner about 10 emails and phone calls before we finally decided to make the reservation.

She made us feel completely comfortable and answered all of our questions. She even emailed us a package with travel recommendations and a travel magazine. So helpful! Once we got there, the property manager was waiting for us at the lobby, even though we got there at 11pm because our flight was delayed. She showed us everything and was very nice. The apartment was perfect, extremely clean and so very comfortable. Although she spoke no English, whe was nice and tried to be helpful.

It was so nice to sleep with the windows open and let the ocean breeze in. We had made many plans to travel around the island and had rented a car. But once we arrived to the apartment, we just got lazy and spent most of our time by the pool or under the palm trees by the beach.

We even made most of our lunches and ate at the picnic tables by the pool. We made friends with two women who were staying in another of the apartments that the owner rents in the same building and they kept us laughing the whole time :).

This place was much more than what we could have expected at a hotel and the price was so reasonable that we spent less than expected on our vacation. We would definitely go again for an easy vacation and would recommend it to friends.

Fantastic Stay !!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment with my son. We have never stayed in a rental apartment before, so we were not familiar with the process. All our fears went away once we talked with the property owner. She was super professional, answered all of our questions and we were able to view her bio online so we knew exactly who we were working with. Her husband was also super helpful.

The experience of renting an apartment is totally different than staying in a hotel. We felt very independent, like were living there. It is a little unsettling when you don't know the language and have not been there beofre. It was great that the property mananger was there when we arrived. Although she spoke no English, she seemed nice and willing to help.

The apartment itself is absolutely great. It has everything we needed and it was confortable and clean. But it was not perfect. Like the furniture is not top of the line and such. I can understand that if it were, the rental would be a lot more expensive. Before we rented this place, we were looking at hotels in the area and they were over $100 more per night plus there were a bunch of taxes that I could not even understand. So, in that sense, you get what you pay for if you stay in a hotel compared to an apartment like this.

Overall, the apartment was very affordable, safe, clean and convenient. The location is perfect. We rented a car and hardly used it. We should have saved that money to go to fancier restaurants during our stay.

We would definitely come here again and stay in this apartment. As we get better at renting apartments instead of hotels, I think that the experience will be even better next time.

Great Location and Views

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was the best ever! Our one month stay in Condado was wonderful. This apartment is immaculate, the best place we ever stayed in on the island! The location-right on the ocean with corner view of the city and then the ocean was amazing. Views of the sky, the water and the wonderful pool was so nice to see whenever we went to window. 17 floors up is so nice. It's like we were living in the clouds, and when it rained we could see it from the hills in the distance coming towards us. The cloud view all day long was great.

The location, well what can I say. We could walk to supermarket, which is wonderful. Prepared Puerto Rican food all day. Open 24 hours. Liquor sold there, and great people to sit down with and have a cup of cafe con leche. Many wonderful restaurants near by to walk to also. Bus stop right in front of apartment -no need to rent a car unless you want to travel into the island.

The pool was so nice, met many great people pool side. Can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely comments. It was such a pleasure to have you stay in our home. When you come back, you will notice some great updates. The building is also rebuilding the elevators, so they will be new and modern soon. Also, there is a new, health food cafe just downstairs at the lobby of the building. They have great fruit bowls, juices and salads. It is so nice to get one of those and take it to the pool without even having to get out of your bathing suit! I am sure you will enjoy this. Hope to have you back soon. Best wishes and many thanks for your stay. Claudio Family and Lorena

A great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

The beach-front property was perfect for my extended stay in San Juan. The unit has incredible views of both the beach and city, and is located in a great neighborhood full of fun bars and restaurants. The owners made sure my arrival went smoothly and made sure my stay was as comfortable as possible. The open kitchen, big windows, and cool ocean breeze help the unit feel large and comfortable. I can't wait to come back, and plan to use the unit for all of my future stays!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this condo from 9/3/13-9/10/13 and had a WONDERFUL time! Perfect location - close travels to everything, and the beach is RIGHT out the back gate!!! Owner maintained contact to ensure we were taken care of, had everything we needed, and even followed up a couple days after we left. PERFECT!!!

My husband and I stayed at this condo for one week in March. We were very disappointed in the quality of the accommodations as well as the general upkeep of the building itself. We would not recommend this accommodation.

The condo is in major need of renovations and updating. The kitchen had broken, chipped, mismatched cutlery and dishes. There was no dishwasher nor was there a proper sink plug or dish pail provided. Needless to say, the cleanliness of all was sketchy at best and I had to wash every item before we could use it.

The bathroom was small, poorly lit and ventilated by a rusty, dusty tabletop fan which was mounted to the wall with a makeshift bracket. The bathtub, again had no plug, and the enamel finish was completely pealing off the bottom. This was covered by a rubber suction mat.

The futon in the sitting area was as hard as a rock with grungy accent pillows.

The queen size bed had a mattress that must be at minimum 15 years old. It was not comfortable. The sheets, pillow cases and towels were cheap, warn, mismatched and hardly good enough for the amity bag. I made the mistake of looking underneath the pillow case and was completely disgusted...stained, and in great need of proper laundering. I might also add that there were no proper night tables or plugs in the bedroom to even put a lamp beside the bed should you want to read.

The only thing this condo had going for it was the location. However, the building was extremely shabby and poorly kept. The elevators creaked and groaned and made me wonder if we were going to make it safely up and down every time I stepped into one. The pool, which was quite large, was cold, though we did swim in it and there were plenty of lounge chairs to use around it. The beach is not safe for swimming as it was far too rough and dangerous.

All in all, this condo is highly overrated. Obviously it has never been updated and has been furnished with cheap, inexpensive, garage sale finds.

Owner's Response: I am stunned by your review! You bring up issues that are beyond reason and out of our control. Your review is extremely unfair. For instance, I don't know how the pool could have been "cold", since the temperature when you were there was between 75F and 84F degrees. The beach directly in front of the building is a well-known surfing spot, especially in winter. Had you walked a few yards east on the beach in front of the building, as we said in the materials that we sent you, you would have found a much calmer part of the beach which is safer for swimming. It is quite unfair that you fault us for things that are completely beyond our control. For these reasons, we find your review very unfair and misleading. We have over 40 reviews for three apartments in the same building and your review is the first one that is less than 5 stars. We have been renting our apartments on Homeaway for 7 years and we pride ourselves for giving excellent service. I guarantee you that the few valid comments that you make will be corrected, such as openning the new dishset and putting it out so that it is accessible and the dishes don't look "mismatched". Our property manager lives a block away and she provides additional cleaning if guests find anything to be unsatisfactorily clean upon arrival. Had you read the materials that we sent you, you would have known to call the property manager if you found that something was not properly clean when you arrived. This apartment was completely gut-renovated a year ago, including new floors, kitchen, windows, etc. All appliances, including the mattresses, are new. Instead of posting this unfair review, a quick call to the property manager would have saved you the trouble. In fact, there were new sets of linens in the closet if the ones that were on the bed were too "cheap". There are no dishwashers allowed in the building, so I am not sure how to respond to that. The building is directly on the beach, so things tend to rust easily and maintenance is a constant struggle. In fact, the lobby of the building was being prepared for re-painting while you were there so that may be why you found it to be "shabby". A new elevator is being installed. In short, we would have appreciated the opportunity to address any issues that we could have improved for your stay. We couldn't have made the temperature any warmer or the waves any calmer, but we would have happily changed the linens and dishes for you.
