Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Cangrejo Arriba - Ricomar

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Queen bed + futon, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Best Location! Unforgettable view!

When we first stepped in the apartment we just couldn't believe how beautiful the view is! It is amazing.

We completely remodeled the apartment and it is now a jewel.

Comfortable, beautifully decorated one bedroom surrounded by two of the most beautiful beaches in San Juan. This apartment is ON the water; no side views or views from afar. The beach IS there! The view is breathtaking and the soothing sounds of the beach waves keep you company 24/7. Absolutely no traffic! Just waves!! Miles of sandy beach surround the apartment. The Isla Verde beach is on one side (where the El San Juan Hotel is), and the quieter beach of the Ritz Carlton is on the other side. Both beaches are very long and have water sports and chair rentals. So, if you like walking or jogging on the sand, water sports, swimming or just want to enjoy an endless summer view this is the place to stay. The apartment is perfect for two guests. The kitchen is fully equipped. It has a full bathroom with shower. The bedroom has a queen bed and there is 1 full size futon in the living room. Black-out curtains and roll-up shades in rooms for a perfect sleep, too. There is a reserved parking spot inside the gated property. Rate includes cable TV and high speed wi-fi.

Google 'Punta El Medio', Isla Verde for the exact location.

Catch the public bus (very close) and go to Condado and Old San Juan for just .75 cents! Recommended!

About Lourdes

I love ocean views! This is why I love this property.

Lourdes purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Lourdes chose Puerto Rico

When I first stepped in the apartment I just couldn't believe how beautiful the view is! It is amazing.

We completely remodeled the apartment and it is now a jewel. It is on the beach and next to one of my favorite restaurants in all of San Juan. You, like me, will love to relax in this cute restaurant/bar next door with a wonderful deck and great hamburgers and mofongos!

What makes this apartment unique

Quiet hideaway: We are on a quiet street. Close to everything but far from the traffic and noise of Ave. Isla Verde. Our beachfront is quiet. The only thing you will hear are the waves...

Punta El Medio (also known as Biascoechea) in Isla Verde! The most beautiful beaches at your step!

Things to do: Walking distance from the apartment there are hotels, casinos, a Walgreens and lots of restaurants. Pueblo Supermarket is a five minute ride in car away. Next to the apartment there is a nice restaurant with a spectacular view (the same one you will see from thel apartment) with a deck where you can relax, listen to music, eat or just have a drink. This apartment cannot be beat!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented the place for a 9 day vacation and were pleasantly surprised that it was actually ON the water and close to everything the ad described and more! The view is breathtaking and the place is close enough to supermarkets, beaches w/ ammenities and the VIEW..(OMG). I would like to thank our hosts for such a beautiful space and the prompt hospitality of Mr. Arnold. Everything we needed and more.. we shall return. Have you ever stayed somewhere and wished it was your own? this place is it. lol Anyone who stays here will have the same experience, we are sure. Again, thank you to our hosts and Mr. Arnold for the experience.

great location, well maintained, great management

  • 5 of 5

This property is what you think of when you think of a vacation rental. Great location, well maintained, great price, great communication with owner and manager, everything was just great.

The property is 10 mins from airport. Arnold, the manager, was always available and was waiting for us when we arrived. He showed us everything that was needed. The property is right on the beach, like 3 feet from the waters edge. The AC works really well, everything is really clean, the bed was comfortable. There was even sunscreen, bug repellent, and snorkeling equipment available (I believe this may be left over from other vacationers, so I wouldnt hold the owners accountable if those things arent there for you).

The only thing I would warn people about is that the parking is small compare to stateside standards, I personally didn't have a problem parking the car, but I can see how others would have a problem. Depends on your driving background, and if you decided to get a big manly car when you arrived. Arnold is really good at telling you how to park, follow his directions, hes great.

Thank you Arnold and Lourdes for everything.

David & Leanne.

Excellent views from this property. We really enjoyed ourselves. Arnold, the gentleman that let's you in, is very helpful and full of ideas that helped us with our stay. I recommend this to other visitors to this area!

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this apartment. The view was breathtaking and the location between two beaches can't be beat. Also, the gated parking was great for the rented car and we were minutes to the airport. The only complaint I have is there were no lamps and I'm not a fan of overhead lighting, it kills the ambiance. But even so, I would definitely stay here again.

5 star trip

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations where exactly as advertised. Right on the water with beaches on either side of the unit. we will definitely stay there again. The only problem we had was finding the place from the airport. Arnold had to come meet us at the Hampton inn so we could follow him to the apartment. All in all it was an awesome trip.

Beach, Weather, Water

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Isla Verde. The beach is one of the best we have ever visited. Not crowded, not much surf, warm water , protected swimming areas, readily available chairs and umbrellas. Did I mention the weather? 85 degrees every day for a whole week. Occasional brief shower--few minutes.

The view from the apartment was spectacular. The waves hit on the rocks below and always constantly reminded you of the beach. The apartment is fairly simply furnished. Its not that impressive at first glance. However after staying there for a few days, you realize how well it functions. The air conditioners are quiet and first rate. The plumbing in the bathroom is new and works well. Bed was comfortable and room had room darkening shades. All kitchen appliances worked well. Mr Morel was very friendly and was always available with advice and help. One problem was the internet service which did not have a secure wireless capability. We made do with an unsecured link. We found some good restaurants La Playita--a few steps away and the Metropole on Isla Verde Avenue. The only problem we encountered was that since there was no bad weather we did not go sightseeing--we enjoyed seven great beach days in a row! It would help to have a bit of info on the apartment such as how the remote for the AC really works, where the TV guide is, etc. We really enjoyed our vacation.

Beautiful view and a short walk to conveniences

  • 5 of 5

We felt like we were staying in one of those places in Tahiti where the place is right in the water! Even though there was no balcony we opened the window so we could hear the water and feel like we were outside. My husband and I are runners are explored the area quite a bit on foot. We even happened upon a bike path that goes past a beach with facilities and eventually winds up in another little suburb with a wonderfully shady bike path. So, a lot of things are really close by. We did not even rent a car the entire time, only when we wanted to go to Old San Juan or to visit the National Forest. We even took the bus system, but only take that if you are a patient person and not on a schedule to get somewhere at a certain time!

The only thing about the apartment that we found lacking was the kitchen, which could perhaps have a few more dishes and utensils. Most people probably don't even cook on vacation, but my husband likes to cook and still does on vacation when we have a kitchen. Probably things have just become broken and not replaced when they have been used over the years. We did not have much interaction with the owner, but Arnold was more than helpful and ready to assist with whatever we needed.

The apartment was just as described in the layout. I would recommend staying here if you want to be close to a lot of conveniences, have close beach accessibility and be able to just get out and explore the area.

Miles of sandy beach surround the apartment. It is located in 'la punta del medio' or 'Biascoechea' in Isla Verde. The Isla Verde beach is on one side (where the El San Juan Hotel is), and the more quiet beach of the Ritz Carlton is on the other side. Both beaches are very long and have water sports rentals available.
