“Unobstructed, beautiful oceanfront view and a nice condo too !”
Reviewed March 22, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We loved this place. Had a big window that we lost track of how many times we would go and look out the window - to see surfers, kite surfers, people walking along the beach and the magnificent pool, etc.( too bad there was no balcony). Nothing like hearing the waves; we sure miss that at home! We had awesome weather and left the window open 24/7 and just used the 2 ceiling fans and not once needed to use the air conditioner. The pool was huge, really nice, and quiet. A lot of times we were the only ones in the pool, but people would utilize the loungers around the pool, of which there was always enough. The apartment itself was very clean, and had lots of things you would need from staples like lots of hangars, ice cube trays, garbage bags, paper towels, and 4 rolls of TP which was appreciated as you didn't have to go buy it as soon as you got there. There was also bits and bops of lots of things like shampoo, soap, sunscreen etc. The bed was super comfy too. There is only 1 side table though and the light by it did not work as the prongs of the plug do not fit in the socket. Would be nice to have another end table and light. Also, there is a clock on the wall in the unit, but it did not work. We were going to buy some batteries and fix it but couldn't as the $5? clock was nailed to the wall. Also, why have a nice bathtub when you can't use it as the faucet is broken? Also, the wooden doors outside the bathroom and apartment need to be shaved down, as they are really loud. As well, there is only 1, not 2, beach chairs that are available to use, but no biggie, as if we laid on the beach out front, my husband used a beach towel. Didn't lie right out front much, as the beach is quite narrow. Walk to the right, and not too far down (at Ocean Park) you can rent chaise loungers and a sun umbrella for the day and the beach becomes wider and the hotels start. Walk to the right and there are lots of restaurants (we loved Pinky's for breakfast and sandwiches) and there's a Walgreen's, etc. If you walk out to the left of the complex, there's a food mart almost right across the street, that is small, but sells small amounts of many things you might need or want. On the same side a block away is a restaurant called Blonda's which we really liked and they have half priced certain drinks and food from 3 to 7 everyday. But basically walk right when you walk out the complex as that's where most everything is, including Radisson casino and most places and businesses on Ashford St. that aren't too far away at all.

It takes about a day to get used to the keys for the lock system, but so great to have that real feeling of security! There's also a tennis court, gym, and a games room with ping-pong and pool table on site. All the people we encountered in the building, or at the pool, whether residents or foreigners, were very friendly and helpful and would say hi all the time. The building is very quiet too - rarely heard a noise whatsoever.

We would highly recommend this place and would have no hesitation in renting it again if we were in Puerto Rico once more.. Go and enjoy - Cheers!

Thank you so much for coming all the way from Canada and enjoying our vacation home. We were happy to have you and sure appreciate your very nice comments and recommendations. I will certainly make sure that the small issues that you bring up will be addressed. For instance, for some reason, guests like to "borrow" the electrical plug adapter for the nightstand lamp... It has disappeared three times (!). But for the most part, we have been blessed with wonderful guests like you who appreciate staying in a safe, clean and beautiful apartment for their vacation in Puerto Rico. Thank you so much for your review and looking forward to welcoming you again to our home.

“Paradise on Earth”
Reviewed March 16, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We loved staying in this condo, it was perfect for my husband and I. The view is unbeatable and breathtaking! Seriously, the best view ever!!! It was such a pleasure to wake up to it and fall asleep listening to the waves... The neighbors are extremely friendly, the beach steps away - spacious and not crowded, and the area is fun, safe and pleasant. I could go on and on about things to do in San Juan, but I will just say that we fell in love with Puerto Rico and can't wait to go back. Thank you, Luz, for letting us stay in your wonderful condo!

Best,

Anna and Kris.

“Perfect”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed in Dr. Claudio's Ocean front Studio from April 26th to May3rd. We were a bit leery since it was our first time using Flip Key but the price was better than any of the local hotels and it had an ocean view, a pool, security/ gated building, parking space included, kitchen etc so, being practical minded, I booked it. It was perfect for us. Exactly what you see in the pictures and video. Pleasant people in the building, check in and out were a breeze, great location, Ocean Front so you hear the waves and see the sunrise and sunset from the room. The pool was huge and amazing and there are plenty of lounge chairs to sit on either under a tree in the shade or in the sun. To access the beach you use your key and go in/out of the gate...we walked to the right, closer to Ocean Park Beach because they had a roped off section there and chair rentals/umbrella rentals. The water temperature was very inviting and the waves were fun to swim in. It was also fun to watch the surfers and the kite boarders. The gym wasn't much but it didn't really matter because we jogged in the mornings (with all the other joggers) while it was cooler and swam for exercise. Bring your tennis rackets if you want to play tennis, the court is nice. We rented a car the whole time from Charlie Car Rental in Isla Verde and got the ez pass thing for an extra $10 so we could ride the expressway and wouldn't have to stop at toll booths. Driving to Old San Juan was easy and parking at Dona Fela parking garage or the public parking lot was convenient (we went twice). We booked a kayaking trip in Culebra that included ferry tickets and that was awesome....beautiful Flamenco Beach, kayaking and snorkelling to see coral reefs and sea turtles. We drove to Fajardo and met up with the people from the excursion and they gave us the ferry ticket so we avoided waiting in the LONG line and risking not getting on the ferry- totally worth it. Our other outings included driving to/through El Junque Rainforest and hiking(especially to La Coca Falls -wear your bathing suit!), Fajardo Bio Bay electric boat tour, the beautiful Luquillo Beach (bring a dollar for the bath house so you can shower/change/use toilets/use locker).
Dr. Claudio's studio was a perfect home away from home spot for our vacation in Puerto Rico. It was all we wanted and more.

“Better Than Described”
Reviewed May 14, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The unit was actually more updated than the pictures show online. A friend and I went - she took the bed and I slept on the futon which was really comfortable. The views were amazing and the ocean breeze was perfect. YES, we were lulled to sleep by sound of the ocean waves. Lorena the property manager was nice - as soon as she learned I spoke some Spanish we got our overview of the unit in Spanish :) I understood everything she said. We didn't need to call her for anything because everything we needed was there already.
One of the elevators was broken the entire time we were there, which sometimes lead to long wait times. But, what I really appreciated is that Luz the property owner warned us a week in advance and offered to upgrade us to one of her larger units at no extra charge, which I thought was wonderful, but we decided to stay in the studio unit anyway because the view was sooo PERFECT. Luz was very honest, professional, and I would definitely stay in this studio unit again or one of her other properties. Also, the residents in the building were very friendly and we felt like a part of the community - not tourists. The property is also less than 5 minutes walking distance to Starbucks and good restaurants so the location is great too. But, I do recommend renting a car if you want to see other places in Puerto Rico besides Condado.

So, in summary, it was two women staying in this unit and it was plenty of room for us and all of our stuff and like I said the futon was very comfortable - I forgot I was sleeping on a futon, lol :) And my friend she slept well in the bed. But, I would not recommend this unit for more than 2 adults.

Hola!
So very nice of you to take the time from your busy schedule to post a review, especially such a positive one.
You are right, I should update the pictures on the website but we are constantly updating the furniture, and trying to improve in the little details that make the place so special. I am glad that the apartment surpassed your expectations and that it was clean and comfortable.
One thing I have learned from 8 years of offering vacation rentals is that being honest with guests is the very best policy. So glad that you appreciated that.
Let me also say that you were wonderful guests to have. Lorena in particular really enjoyed your effort to communicate in Spanish and I really appreciated your contact while you were staying in the apartment. Guests like you make our efforts worthwhile.
Thank you again for choosing our apartment for your vacation in Puerto Rico. Please know that you would be most welcome any time.
Warm regard,
Lorena, Dr. Claudio and family

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
