Guestbook comments from the owner

I was able to walk a block to anything I wanted, beach, clubs, restaurants, supermarkets. Old San Juan was only 15 min away. The property manager Franchie and the owner John were very accessible and very accommodating. Great place, quiet building and a great deal for the money. I'll be going back next year sure. Definitely 5 stars!

Owner's Response: Translation: I spent 5 days in the apt and all was very nice and clean. I had everything that anyone needs... It was super because I also had everything to go to the beach. Unfortunately I could not go because the weather was not very good. John was very attentive and Franchie was super good. I told my spouse that we'd return to rent this apartment again in the future. I recommend it to everyone. Muchisimas gracias Peri! Thank you so much Peri!! It was a pleasure having you.

Looking forward to staying there again.

Place had potnential

  • 2 of 5

I'm going to try and be objective with my review. However, first impressions are lasting impressions.

We arrived for the check in at 4 pm and the apartment floor was filthy so it clearly had not been swept or mopped prior to our arrival. I immediately mentioned it to Frenchie who attempted to start vacuuming the floor as we stood there. I told him I'd do it myself as we had plans and had to shower and dress immediately. He apologized and left. I then found hair all over the toilet bowl and hair on the bed sheets. Toothpaste all over the bathroom sink. A 3/4 empty bottle of wine in the refrigerator and an empty bottle of ice tea on the counter. Clearly, the place had not been cleaned and the sheets had not been replaced prior to our arrival. Completely disgusting and unacceptable.

I immediately voiced my displeasure to Frenchie and to the owner John. The following morning I purchased bed sheets and when replacing the pillow cover, I noticed the pillow was covered in large yellow stains and was disgusted that my face was ever on the pillow. I noticed the owner had a Pennsylvania address on his email and let him know of the conditions in case he was unaware that his property was not being properly tended to. After a few emails, he became a bit defensive but did ask how he would be able to fix it. Unfortunately, there was no way for him to fix what had already occurred. I attempted to clean myself but there was a broken mop head, Swiffer with no pads and a Swiffer wet mop with no pads and was inoperable. Based on this alone, I would never stay here again.

Location: The location is convenient and walking distance to restaurants, shops and other hotels. Beach access is not very convenient.

Room: I already expressed the condition the room was found in. The bed and the futon were comfortable. There were plenty of beach chairs and they were comfortable. The beach umbrella was not strong enough for the wind so I suggest renting one on the beach if you want one. The cooler was dirty, had a cracked handle and the handle was stuck as it seems that sand is never wiped off. However, I cleaned it and it was functional. Unfortunately, had it not been for the dirty condition of the room, it would have been a decent rental. I'm leaving my review so that anyone else who decides to rent it is well aware of the issue I had. John was easy to reach but I believe he has misplaced trust in his property manager.

Owner's Response: Upon hearing from him, I offered to rectify the situation immediately. My on site manager had done so as well and we were both refused. There was no need to buy anything when it would have been taken care of on the spot.Plenty of clean bedding, towels, etc. are on site. As it turned out, I misinformed my manager of the date for check in by one day. This is why the apartment wasn't ready. All in all, whenever a problem is at hand, it gets fixed immediately if not sooner. If this were a hotel, the same situation would have been addressed to the renter's satisfaction. However we were not given that chance. We even waived the cleaning fee immediately upon check in. This was a fluke and miscommunication on my part. I want all of my renters to be completely satisfied. C'mon down everyone!! You WILL be happy!

Great Value Studio Condo

  • 4 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying in this condo with my daughter and granddaughter for one week. It's a very comfortable and efficient space. Franchie the manager is always available to answer questions and or concerns. It is a very clean cozy condo that accommodated our needs. The building is quiet and the pool is great. I will definitely be renting this condo in the future if available. They also include a parking space which is a huge bonus, since parking in Isla Verde is quite limited.
