“Absolutely perfect for two”
We rented from this owner before as she has several apartments in this building. We rented this apartment for our in-laws. They absolutely loved this place and had a great time. The apartment was clean, comfortable and affordable. It was walking distance to everything and you don't need a car all the time. Since they are older, they liked the convenience and the safety. Having the beach front and the pool were amazing. This place is the best and it has a very good price.
“Waking in Paradise”
We just stayed at this lovely condo for a Week's vacation, and this was the most pleasant, rewarding trip we have ever taken. Up to this trip, we had always tried the usual travel plans, booking a small hotel room, crowded lobby and so-so in hotel eatery experiences, and noise from other guests enjoying their late evening activity. This Condo was so beautifully decorated, with panoramic views of the ocean and beach. Despite warm days, the ocean breeze kept the Condo cool and comfortable. Nothing can compare to falling asleep, feeling the refreshing wind coming off the Ocean, listening to the waves crash against the sandy beaches, and waking to picture perfect sunrises every morning. The 24 hours guarded security, and secure access to the beach made us feel safe and secure the entire trip. The Owner ensured that there was nothing left to chance for us when we arrived. We were greeted by a lovely woman, who showed us around the building, demonstrated all the appliances, entry security, and also where the local attractions were in the area. The Condo was fully stocked with everything you will need, Linens, Towels, Fully stocked Kitchen, Full Refrigerator and Freezer, Microwave, Coffee Maker, Toaster, Cookware (utensils, Pots, Pans, Plates, Cups, Glasses, and Coffee Mugs). The residents helped up to discover how easy it was to travel to all the most sought after locations on the very efficient Public Transportation. We spent a fortune on Cab Fares during our last trip, compared to just $15.00 Dollars for an entire week or travelling everyday. If you come to the beautiful Island, ride the Bus, you won't be sorry. If you have a chance, take our advice, leave the Hotels to other tourists, and truly embrace the culture and beauty of the Island as a resident. You will come to appreciate the slower lifestyle, casual and friendly people, and the very yummy local dishes at some of the off-the-main street eateries. You will be very happy you did. We plan on coming back next year, and are looking forward to renting this Condo again. It will feel like coming home! Have a great day, and enjoy life. We only get one!
“Heavenly view, lots of beach to walk along, and very kind, frien”
My husband and I stayed in Dr. Claudio's studio from Mar 08-22nd and, in spite of my coming down with a rather severe respiratory illness, we enjoyed our stay. Having such a wonderful view and being steps to the beach was great! We used the BBQ facilities and the large pool many days. I should note that the Bbq's are charcoal so if you've gotten used to a gas grill you'll need to dust off your charcoal lighting skills. The condo is pleasant and sufficiently appointed - nothing fancy but everything worked. The price charged reflects the fact that this is not a 5 star accommodation so I feel we got good value for our money. Remember, this is an older building, and although it's been kept up, it shows it's age a bit. Our only real complaint with the building were the elevators. Although there were two tenant elevators and a service elevator, none were in very reliable working order, and we often waited for 5-10 minutes for one to arrive ... that's a long time if you're carrying food down to the BBQ area to prepare a meal. There were workers diligently working on one of the elevators while we were there so one would hope that this issue is resolved in short order. I should also mention that having the Hospital so close by turned out to be a blessing and I received very good medical care. Our other tip would be to arrange contact the tourism board to request detailed maps of Puerto Rico if you plan on doing any exploring because, although we searched for adequate road maps at many gas stations and book stores, we were only able to find the touristy, cartoonish ones that really weren't that helpful. All in all, the weather was fabulous, the condo was decent and clean and the location was unsurpassed ... We'd love to go back some day
Response from the owner Hola! Thank you so much for posting your review. Yes, you are in fact correct. The building is completely rebuilding the elevators so the workers stop each at a time as they install the new ones. We expect that the new elevators will be completed shortly, so next time you come the building should have the new elevators already running. I am so very glad that you are ok now and that you received good care at the Presby Hospital next door to our building. As a doctor myself, I include the hospital in my list of recommendations as anything can happen while one is traveling. In fact, two of our guests have given birth there (one planned and the other unplanned :). Again, thank you for staying in our vacation home and we hope to have you come back again soon. Warm regards, Dr. Claudio, Lorena and family
My wife and I had an absolute perfect week @ this studio in Condado. The weather, the condo, beach, and pool is exactly what we needed, and it exceeded our expectations. We look forward to referring friends and returning again next year. Building was secure, 20 steps from the beach, pool area was great. condo was perfect size. Comfy bed, great ocean breeze, AC, free WiFi, cable TV.
Response from the owner Dear Adam, I cannot thank you enough for your wonderful review. Your review really lifted our spirits as we've had some challenging moments with some of our guests as the elevators in the building were being rebuilt. Guests like you are what keep us going. You were courteous, relaxed and obviously an experienced traveler who is open to new experiences. I am really appreciative that even though our property manager doesn't speak English, you made an effort to communicate with her and you appreciated the hard work that she does to keep the apartment clean and comfortable for you. Even though we could easily just rent our apartments full time, it is because of people like you that we keep doing the hard work of vacation rentals. Thank you again so much for your kind words, which come at the perfect time. Please know that we offer a discount to repeat customers and we look forward to having you back. Consider this your second home in Puerto Rico. Warm regards, Dr. Claudio and Lorena
“Engaged in Paradise!”
My fiancé and I got engaged on the island of Vieques during this vacation! Dr. Claudio was very accommodating with all the communication since this was our first time booking a condo rental without ever meeting the owner or viewing the condo. The Condo on Condado Beach in San Juan was perfect! The view is "as advertised" I have the exact same picture in the add on my iPhone! The direct access to the beach is incredible and the condo staff is pleasant. This condo is close to grocery, shopping, restaurants, coffee, expressway, just 5 minute drive from the airport, 15-20 minute drive to Old San Juan (we spent most of 4 different days in Old San Juan which is incredible) and the panoramic view from the large sliding window is incredible! The swimming pool and huge patio are outstanding and very clean! Overall, one of the best vacations ever!! Thank you Dr. Claudio for your excellent accommodations and service!
“perfect relaxing get away perfect for couples”
We had a wonderful time at Dr. Luz's condo. It was convenient to the airport it was only a 20.00 taxi ride from the airport to the condo. Once we arrived at the airport we called the property manager to advise her we would be on our way. She met us in the lobby and was very kind and helpful and showed us to the condo. The service from booking to arriving and departing was perfect. The list of locations to eat and visit was filled with great recommendations. We had the best Scallops ever at Oceanu, we also had Pinky's sandwiches which if you are like us you will go home and try to replicate their sauce. The condo itself was absolutely wonderful. The view from the room was breathtaking, it was clean and neat. The beach behind the building was clean and pretty much empty it felt as if we had our own private beach. The condo was stocked with goggles, a cooler, towels, everything that you would need to enjoy the beach. The location of the condo was nice as well. It was right at the edge of downtown San Juan. It was close to all the restaurants and bars. There was also a Walgreens less than a block away. We stocked up on water and snacks there it was easy to get everything back to the condo. We spent more time relaxing on the beach instead of looking for meals and traveling because of the convenient location of the condo.
Response from the owner Sandra, Thank you for the wonderful review. It was lovely to have you stay in our vacation home. Several of our neighbors asked me about the "supermodel staying in our apartment" and commented on how nice and beautiful you are. Please come back any time. Mi casa es su casa. Best, Luz
“Awesome location - great condo”
Second time satying in the condo. This time for a whole month. It is fabulous.
“Oceanfront Studio with Pool on Condado Beach”
I had the immense pleasure of renting the above mentioned studio for 3 weeks. I walked into a lovely well equipped large studio containing full kitchen set-up, internet, TV, ocean front view, immaculate marble floored, comfortable double bed, well planned living arrangement. The building's pool was a dream come true and I swam in the Olympic pool each evening before getting ready for dinner. The location on ashford avenue was ideal for my purposes; close to supermarket, "the action" the beach, the bus stops, hotels etc. This is an ideal place for people who desire a quiet oasis without loud music blaring and late-night fiascos in the surrounding apartments. I would recommend this rental to responsible mature people who can appreciate value. No smoking.
Ok! My girlfriend and I got back from staying in Dr. Claudio's studio in Condado about a week ago and we had a wonderful time. The building is on the eastern part of the "tourist" area, so really, you only want to head west while walking around, but the neighborhood is absolutely safe and everyone was really friendly. It's close to the more entrenched tourist area, easy access to hotels (which can help you coordinate tours and so forth), and, most importantly, the unit itself is clean, well arranged and makes great use of the space. For two people, the studio was plenty of room. The grounds themselves leave a little to be desired (specifically, the gym is in a serious state of disrepair) but the pool area is nice and the grounds in the rear of the building open directly on to the beach, which was gorgeous. Dr. Claudio and the property manager were helpful, responsive, and friendly. Oh, and as an aside, make sure to read Dr. Claudio's recommendations for food/fun around the building. We didn't until about halfway through our stay and wished we had discovered Pinky's much much earlier!
Response from the owner Thank you very much for your review. Glad that you found that the apartment is clean and well appointed, that the pool and beach are wonderful and that the people are friendly. I also appreciate your comment about our location. As you point out, we are in a great area that is safe and walking distance to many tourist attractions. As you point out, I strongly recommend that our guests review the materials that I send them before they travel. I think that if you had read what I sent you, you would have had a better experience. In the package that I sent you, I indicated that renovations to the gym at the building have been postponed, but our tennis court is newly renovated and in great condition. I also said in the materials that we have several fantastic gyms very nearby. One amazing gym is a couple of blocks away on De Diego Avenue. I left guest passes for that gym in the apartment. The nearby gyms also have trial memberships that you can sign up for free or for a small fee. They include group classes and other amenities. Also, given the nice weather there, many of our guests like to exercise outdoors. As you probably noticed, many locals and tourists like to walk or jog along Ashford Avenue. There is also a very nice running track about ten minutes east of the building that is open to the public. It is unfortunate that the issue with the gym may have caused you to give us a 4 star rating. Perhaps if you would have known that we provide alternative solutions to this issue, your rating would have been 5 stars. I hope that future guests will read the instructions that I send before their travel so that they don't miss out on any of our recommendations. Thank you again.
“Great property and great landlord.”
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We wanted to be in the Condado area but still be able to relax and still be by ourselves, have some privacy. We were able to leave the windows open and listened to the beat of the ocean daily. It was especially awesome at night. The breezes kept the room very comfortable. We didn't need the air conditioning. We were also able to watch the surfers from our window. It is a great view. Besides having the ocean and the beach through the gate there was the pool. Having them both was a big plus. This apartment is very convenient. We were able to walk to the grocery store and to all the restaurants. We like to walk and went walking every day. It is near a residential area so it was fun to see the neighborhoods. The hospital is next door if necessary. We walked to dinner every evening and felt safe. You do not need to rent a car; but, if you do rent a car, you have your own parking space. We found everything to be as per the listing. The owner was constantly providing information to us. She was extremely helpful. We would recommend this apartment to anyone.
