About Nora

Entrepreneur who owns 6 condos in Marbella del Caribe. Have been renting since 1988. Known for best apartments. I own 6 apartments in condominium Marbella del Caribe. I take excellent care of them, along with my caretaker, Esperanza. I travel to Puerto Rico every month from New York and stay in a different condo each time so that I can make sure they are all in excellent condition and are fully equipped and everything is in good condition. I have a reputation in and around Marbella as having the best apartments. I take great pride in these apartments and always want to make sure they are as advertised (in fact most people say that they exceed expectations.

Nora purchased this condo in 2005

Why Nora chose Isla Verde

Already owned 5 units but was turning away many potential renters due to lack of availability. I knew it was time to purchase another condo. I've been going to Puerto Rico since 1968. I've stayed in many condos and hotels along the Isla Verde and Condado Tourist areas. I find Condominium Marbella del Caribe to be the best, by far. In fact, I've owned an apartment in another condo/hotel, but sold it so I could have all of my units in Condominium Marbella because they are the best kept and the staff are always friendly and helpful.

What makes this condo unique

1. A quick flight from mainland U.S.

2. Part of the U.S. so no worries about foreign government, currency, etc. and no passport needed from the U.S.

3. Beautiful weather every day of the year. Average temp is 87 in the summer and 82 in the winter.

4. Clean and comfortable apartments that are well kept and updated often.

5. Isla Verde Beach is the most beautiful beach in San Juan and it is right out the back door. In addition, this location offers something for everyone...whether it be a quite vacation, or one with exciting night life, or one that offers wonderful tourists attractions, this condo is for you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo is in a great location.

The apartment was clean and pretty.

The A/C broke down twice during the 5 nights we were there.

It is very difficult to sleep in the Puerto Rico Summer heat. We found this out the hard way.

Ms. Bertucci was very prompt to get it repair but, this put a sour time to our vacations.

good place to stay

  • 4 of 5

shower in master room should have hand grip, no place to hold on. In order to open garage door your vehicle needs to be inches close to the gate in order to open? There should be a safe distance like four feet so that people are not afraid of crashing through the gate, not safe.

There should be a crip sheet of emergency tel. no. police department, hospitals, places in the area where to dine, bus service and rates, taxi services and tel no. favorate attractions and miles. This is normal in other properties I stayed throughout my travels

A perfect beachfront vacation

  • 5 of 5

Nora's condo was exactly as advertised and we had a wonderful week there over Christmas. The location is great, with many restaurants and shops within an easy walking distance. We rented beach chairs and umbrellas right in front of the building and loved walking the length of the beautiful beach. It was easy to get a taxi or Uber, and there are several rental car places nearby. We saw some evidence of the hurricanes, but all power and services were fully up and running in the Isla Verde area of San Juan. We were impressed by the resilient spirit of the people of Puerto Rico and hope to visit again some day.

Nice condo and location!

  • 4 of 5

This condo is cute and clean and has a great balcony right on the beach. It's in a great location to visit different areas if you have a car. The neighborhood is not fancy but had several nice little places to eat and shop. The beach was quiet during the week and really came alive with activity in the weekend.

We really enjoyed our stay but there are a few things to be aware of. The security around the parking garage and building take a little getting used to. There are multiple locked gates and doors to get in and out of the property and fencing with barbed wire around the grounds. My kids jokingly called it the prison yard. It was a little frustrating at first but we got used to it and the view and beach were still amazing. The parking garage is like a maze and was hard to navigate at first. A diagram of the entrance and parking spot would have been helpful.

Also be aware that there are virtually no basic supplies in the condo. There are lots of nice towels, but you will need to bring soap, shampoo, blow dryers, and even toilet paper (one roll is provided). There are no basics in the kitchen like salt and pepper or coffee filters. And there was only one trash bag provided. We needed to go buy a few things at the Walgreens across the street.

This is still a great place to stay for a good price but it would have been nice to be aware of some of these details ahead of time.
