Susan was great, she was there right when we showed up at the condo and gave us all the information we needed. I liked the condo, it was very spacious, the air conditioning worked well throughout the place and it had a very big balcony and great view. The downsides were that the master bed was a little springy and i woke up with a slightly sore back but that could just be me, I really like firm mattresses. The only other thing was the curtains in the living room were loose and fell down when we tried to move them. Otherwise a very nice place and very close to isla verde and that whole strip as well as only 5 min away from the airport.
Susan was a great host who provided all the information and availability we needed for a great stay. The apartment was lovely, the security was great and the security workers very pleasant. The beach is just across the street--no car needed. But to get to old San Juan and other places, a car was useful. We'd definitely stay again!
Susan met us as planned and even allowed us to come a little earlier. Communication was good before, during and afterwards.
The condo is on the top floor as stated, pictures are fairly accurate, view is spectacular of the ocean. Kitchen is well equipped, coffee and other items were available to us upon our arrival. The pool is beautiful and well maintained with lounge chairs. Showers and bathrooms are also available next to pool, as well as a place to barbeque and eat outside by the pool which we did numerous times. The pool was fairly quiet most of the time, weekends a little busier but still quiet for the size of the condominium.
There are many reviews commenting about the noise from planes, we did not find this a problem however, highway noise was very loud and constant. Air conditioners at night help to drowned it out. We found walking to the beach and around not a problem if you like to walk. Everything you need is within walking distance 15 -20 minute walk. Taxi's all seem to know where it is located when given the address which is a real plus in Puerto Rico! We liked it so much that we are going back in 6 weeks!
Great host, the apartment was perfect as on the picture so no surprise. I really appreciate the flexibility about the check in and check out. thanks
The only complaint about our stay is that we didn't stay long enough! Susan is such a wonderful host. We were allowed to check in early and upon arrival she gave us some great information about where to eat, places to go and activities to do. The apartment itself is VERY spacious and clean! The kitchen includes everything you need to make a delicious meal if you decide to stay in. The beach, restaurants, and stores are within a 15 min walk from the apartment. We rented a car so it made everything even more covenient. Let me tell you about this view.....SO AMAZING!!!! The first day we got there we just sat on the balcony, ate food and just took it all in. The one thing I appreciated the most about our stay is that whenever we needed to get a hold of Susan she would always get back to us right away. We will definately be back to PR and when we do this is the first place we will look up.
Susan is a thoughtful host who provides for her guests in every way - with excellent information to orient us to the apartment and the city and with everything in the apartment to make for a wonderful stay. Moreover, she is perhaps the most forgiving person I've ever met. We accidentally walked off with a critical item, and she was understanding when we discovered our goof and allowed us to mail the item back when I would have been irate! She is a lovely human being and a super host!
Susan is a delight! The pictures accurately reflect the condo and the view is fabulous.
Rooms are very comfortable and the master suite a lovely place. There is an Olympic-size pool, which is wonderful.
The condo, despite its being in the penthouse, is noisy because it is very close to the nearby autopista (highway) and airport. There are good restaurants and excellent shopping nearby, but they really are not within walking distance. Other than these two issues, in all aspects, Susan's place is very convenient and we really enjoyed our stay.
We needed a place with three beds for two nights before a cruise. Susan's place fit the bill, as well as having secure parking and being easy to get to from Charlie Car Rental on Isla Verde Avenue. Susan got back to us promptly with all communications, gave good directions to the property, and met us outside the building when we arrived. Her condo is as it appears in the photos and has three A/C units, including one in each bedroom. I found the wi-fi Internet to work very well. There are a variety of TV channels although we didn't watch TV much. We didn't do any cooking either, but the kitchen is well-equipped. As others have noted, there is some noise from the freeway and of course the A/C; if you're a light sleeper, bring some cheap earplugs and you'll be fine. We'd be glad to stay at Susan's place again if we come to San Juan for another cruise.
Susan is a great host! She will take time to explain everything and point you to the right location. The place is great, what you see in the pictures is exactly what you get in real life. It's not a luxury place, needs some cosmetic renovation, but it's spacious and a view is great for the money.
One thing to consider that others have pointed out is the road noise (and rare airplane one too). I didn't mind it much and window AC partially canceled it out at night (also might be a problem for some), but sitting on the balcony and having conversation may be difficult for quite speakers.
Getting to the beach is easy via an overpass 1-2 blocks away and then taking a narrow alley between coastal high-rises. We much preferred to drive there and leave a car for $8 at one of the beach lots. Saves you time if you are going to eat out somewhere afterwards.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this penthouse for its price/accommodation quality ratio, proximity to airport & beach and hospitality of the host.
Susan is a wonderful hostess. Thank you. The condo is centrally located. I don't mind city noises do that wasn't an issue for us. It is not a four star accommodation but is clean, comfortable, well located and good value for the money!
