About Santiago Sanchez and Zoraya Herrera

We're 3 of us: Husband, 39, from Spain,Wife, 30, from Puerto Rico, and our 2 years old Daughter.

Santiago Sanchez and Zoraya Herrera purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Santiago Sanchez and Zoraya Herrera chose Puerto Rico

We loved this apartment at the beach, and we just bought it in June 2014.

Since we live in Dubai but we obviously travel a lot to Puerto Rico, we decided to rent it out for short terms, but it's also the place we will end-up moving to :-)

What makes this apartment unique

The sea view is unique and magic. Location is perfect, quiet enough but close to the ¨movement¨.

We loved the beach just downstairs.

We just bought all the furniture, bedding and everything ourselves, thinking on our future home once we move back to Puerto Rico.

That's why we decided to get high quality mattresses etc.

Hopefully it will be our home, your home :-)

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate to write this review as I want to be sure the place is available to us when we return next year, but I did promise Santiago so here goes...Pictures and words cannot fully describe how wonderful this apartment is. As soon as you walk in the door you see and hear the ocean which is literally steps away. The apartment is clean, bright, and fully equipped, including beach chairs. The washer and dryer are a definite dirty laundry to bring home! While there are no private beaches in PR, there rarely was anyone there so it was like having our own private beach to enjoy all day long, a true treat. The building is located in an area which is not filled with tourists and has so many nice restaurants to enjoy within a few blocks. Santiago was helpful from the moment I contacted him requesting info about the apt. He called me a few days before our trip to confirm out arrangements and was available throughout our stay, even had Zoraima bring a new air mattress over when we told him the one there was leaking. Thanks for everything Santiago, you will hear from us again!

Impressive view! The perfect place to stay in SJ

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed there with two friends of mine. One of the two bedroom has an amazing view on the sea. The kitchen and the livingroom are spacious and full furnished. The balcony is simply spectacular. The host is careful and prepared to help you for everything.

Great hosts, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I've been vacationing in Puerto Rico for over 30 years, mostly at one of Isla Verde's beachfront condos. This condo is located at the quiet west-end of arguably the best beach in the San Juan metro area. Hotels, casinos, and nightlife (if you like), are mostly on the east-end of this beautiful, crescent-shaped, mile-long beach. The west end is very quiet and so is the building. A well-stocked supermarket is a very short walk away. The beachfront bar "El Alambique", about a 3/4 mile beach walk east serves excellent seafood - don't be fooled by its look!

The condo was clean and well stocked, and Santiago was available and in communication by email constantly. There was a minor repair that had to be done and he took care of the problem the very next day. I agree with previous reviews in that he is one of the best hosts I've ever seen.

The building does not have a pool, but we didn't miss it. The ocean is literally less than 50 steps away. The kitchen is small, and therefore, it does not have a dishwasher, but that was not a problem. It was well stocked. A coffee table, a second TV, and a sofa that opens into a bed would be great improvements. It comes with 1 underground parking spot - very narrow; careful with minivans! The view from the balcony is spectacular (unobstructed 180 degree ocean view).

I would definitely come back.

Thank you Santiago!

Lovely condo right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

Santiago is an attentive, gracious owner who was always available to answer questions and make suggestions. The condo has spectacular ocean views! It's very clean and well-equipped, and has comfortable beds. Location was very convenient as a home base for exploring, or just to relax on beach right downstairs. Only reason we gave 4 out of 5 stars was due to terrible water pressure and temperature control in the shower. (Many would probably not mind this, but we and our teenaged sons found it quite frustrating.) Otherwise, this is a truly excellent place to stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Diana :) Good to hear that you got back home safely. Regarding the water pressure, water pressure and control is always been good and never had a complain(actually never had a complain about anything:)) We changed the shower(installed a new one, more fancy) just before you checked-in and the technician said it was working perfectly. But if it wasn't, you only had to tell us and we would have sent the handyman to adjust it, what he actually did yesterday. As you were saying, we re always available 24/7 for any questions you may have so it would have been more practical to tell us :) we cannot fix something we re not aware of. Anyway sorry for the inconvenience and happy to know that everything else met your expectations and that you liked this wonderful caribbean island. All the best and good luck :)) Santiago& Zoraya
