About Karen Adan

I am an interior design architect with a pasion for cooking. I remodeled and preserved this house built in 1945 with the goal of recreating a small italian villa for my own private use, the house was never intended to be a rental, that is why is so amazing.

Karen Adan purchased this house in 2002

A Treasure Villa that Exceeds all Your Hopes for A Hassle Free Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying that Karen & Pablo will insure you have every creature comfort and little luxuries that keep putting a smile on your families faces. A beautiful private Garden with your own pool , waterfalls and landscaping create that relaxing feeling of seclusion. We were blessed to have our 3 married children with their excellent spouses, along to keep us active and laughing. Our family of 8 adults definitely used the gourmet kitchen, dining room ,private bedroom suites and of course the pool constantly, as informal get together spots daily. The beach, lagoon, great dining , shopping and even casinos were always only blocks away. Everyone did whatever made them the happiest and we would regroup at the Villa often.

As a Super Special treat, we hired Nilda, a private gourmet chef to shop, prepare and serve us all a 12 course , 6 hour meal at the villa, with 2 of the most personal touches assistants to help the feast flow effortlessly. Get a true Puerto Rican dining delight on your schedule. Nilda and her staff are Top Notch. Pablo or Karen will happily hook you up. Nilda and I had a blast preparing the custom menu over the phone and Gmail before we ever arrived. Again, hassle free.

Karen & Pablo even personally stocked our house with a custom food & beverage order , ready upon arrival. The small fee is so very worth it.

If you cannot have a truly memorable ,stress free, vacation in this Luxury, Condado Villa, then you take Life much too seriously.

This Villa is a Score!! Life is short, Play Hard and Appreciate all Puerto Rico has to offer.

Great House, Great Location!!

  • 4 of 5

I will make this review short and get right to the point. We were there with 7 guys for a bachelor party with room for 14. Great location, walking distance to everything in Condado including the beach, hotel lobbies (clubs), strip clubs, restaurants, everything! If you want to go to Old San Juan, Isla Verdes or spend a day at the rain forest these are just short trips away. 5 minutes to Isla Verde, 10 minutes to Old San Juan, 30 minutes to the rain forest. Uber is your friend. Let me repeat that, Uber.Is.Your.Friend. It's cheap and the drivers give great recommendations for places to party or eat.

Back to the house, it's plenty big, everyone basically had their own bathroom. The pool is nice, it's not as big as they make it look in the pictures but it's fine. The backyard has a nice bar area and charcoal grill. Neighborhood is safe, you can walk anywhere, at anytime which is nice since the bars don't close until 4 or 5am.

Only 4 stars because the plumbing in the house needs to be fixed or updated. Showers have really poor water pressure, some have no hot water at all or need to be adjusted just right to get hot water. Also, they're on septic so for a couple of days there was a funky smell but nothing you can't handle.

Karen the host was excellent. We only saw her the first day but she gave us all in the info we needed and showed us around the entire house and property.

Book this house, you won't be disappointed!

Awesome place!!!

  • 5 of 5

Me, my husband and a group of 11 friends all from Michigan stay in the house to celebrate our wedding. We stay for an entire week and we're very super happy with the house. What you see in the photos is 100% real and in some areas even better in person. Rooms are comfortables, kitchen is huge, pool is super nice and patio was very nice!! It was so nice that we celebrated our wedding there. The person that was in charge of the house was always a call away for anything that we need. We end very happy with everything and are very gratefull for everything. Awesome and excellent services.

Great PR Villa

  • 5 of 5

Karen, Juan and team are excellent hosts! This is the second time I've stayed with a group in one of their properties and they do not disappoint. Not only is this large villa beautiful, but it is walking distance to all the happening spots on Ashford. Anything you need from towels to pool toys are right there in the villa. Even the neighbors were pleasant. I would highly recommend if you are traveling with a group between 8 and 16. It's great if you are there to party or if you are looking for something low-key private.

Highly recommend this house for a large family that likes to have fun together!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here March 20- 27, 2016. We had 3 couples and 7 kids ages 14 through 8 in our group. This was the perfect house for us!!

Upon arriving, Karen met us and gave us a tour of the beautiful home. The photos do not do it justice! This house is gorgeous. She pointed out that the previous renters had broken a few things and assured us they would take care of it….for example, Karen had to run out to Walmart to buy a new coffee pot. Each room has its own A/C unit…which was great since not everyone in our group agreed on the temperature setting.

That first night, we cooked dinner in the fully stocked kitchen and ate outside together in the private backyard with a nice large table surrounded by fountains, statues, and the swimming pool.

One day, 4 of us rode the bikes provided to ride around Condado….we felt perfectly safe by the way. This house was in a great location to walk to the beach and various restaurants. It was also a nice distance to drive to PaddleParadise, less than an hour, to the rainforest, about an hour, and Old San Juan, about 10 minutes.

One day, the garbage disposal and dishwasher had problems and Pablo came out the same day to fix both. He was very friendly and gave us suggestion on where to go salsa dancing.

I agree with the other reviewer….the rooms were set up a little weird. You had to walk through one bedroom to get to the next, but this also did not bother us at all. Plenty of bathrooms and plenty of privacy.

This house was more than just a place to stay while on a trip....it truly added to our Puerto Rico vacation experience.

Loved the Condado home and it's owners/manager before, during, and yes, even after our visit!

  • 5 of 5

From before our family of 16 departed from points disparate on the mainland US, we were treated like royalty by the Karen and Juan - owner and manager of the aged but regal home oasis/secret garden in Condado. Before arriving, they helped us set a home served chef's dinner that turned out delicious. After we left, inquires as to items left behind were attended to and sent back promptly! While we were there, whatever inquires or tiny issues we had with the home - old plumbing and a "duh on me for not understanding" washing machine (I'm embarrassed to say- Juan DID explain it to me). The home itself is beautiful, not modern, but we found it super cool (in-wall AC's) and comfortable for about 8 adults and 8 children. The pool and backyard are very pretty and we spent quite a bit of time out there - lounging, bbq'ing, reading, swimming, chatting, and enjoying our chef's dinner. The kitchen's got everything you need to cook and feed the household. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable. The only thing I'd say to a new visitor, while it didn't impact us in any negative way - is that the bedrooms set up oddly - ie - you must pass through one bedroom to get to another. We didn't care one bit and enjoyed our stay at The Secret Garden most immensely! And we loved the how attentive and caring both Juan and Karen were, as much!
