Oversize studio on the top floor of a 12-story condo, with a truly breathtaking view of the best beach in San Juan, with floor-to-ceiling windows, reserved parking spot, quiet AC unit, 100 Mbps WiFi, and a Roku box with Sling TV, all in a secure building with key-operated elevators. The balcony and bedroom both face a stunningly beautiful beach, which USA Today rated #1 Urban Beach in the world.

Boligen
We bought this lovely 583 square-foot apartment in 2013, when it was a small one-bedroom, and remodeled it in 2017 as a large studio, so that the bedroom, dining and kitchen areas all share an amazing view of the ocean. As a result the space has a much more open feeling, with the view -and the breeze- flowing freely throughout, even more so with the floor-to ceiling windows we added in 2019. It was nice before and it's even nicer now.

The bedroom area features a comfy queen-size bed and individual reading lights, and features a roll-down shade to keep out unwanted sunlight. There is also a fold-out futon sofa/bed, which could accommodate a third guest, but please keep in mind occupancy by more than two guests needs to be arranged in advance.

The dining table has seating for four, or you may opt for the kitchen counter, where there are two high chairs. The balcony offers a cocktail table with two additional high chairs, from which you can enjoy the view in complete privacy. All the chairs and seat cushions are waterproof, so feel free to use them in your wet bathing suits.

The bathroom is equipped with a tank-less water heater, and there is a spacious walk-in closet as well as plenty of drawers and storage space. In the closets you'll find a beach umbrella, ice chest, towels and folding chairs, and the kitchen cabinets are well stocked with all the utensils, cookware and tableware you may need.

Before purchasing this unit, we scouted the area for several years looking for the perfect spot. During different visits to the island we stayed at the Ritz Carlton and Caribe Hilton hotels, the ESJ Towers, as well as the Marbella, Girasol and Raquet Club condominiums. All of them are right on the beach and offer easy access to the shops and restaurants on Isla Verde Ave, but for our taste they were either too big, too noisy and/or too crowded. Navigating immense lobbies, circling around parking structures and fighting traffic on Isla Verde Ave just wasn’t our idea of a nice vacation. Then we found the Amapola 14 condominium.

Only six minutes away from the airport, it is on a quiet dead-end street which can be accessed directly from the main highway without having to traverse busy Isla Verde Ave (surprisingly, airport noise is a non-issue). Since it has only 60 residential units (most of which are not offered for rent), the building is quiet, family oriented and peaceful, yet the hustle and bustle of Isla Verde is only a few steps away, with its top-rated dining, bars, supermarkets, cafes, banks, drug stores and shops.

The highlight, however, is the view. Everyone claims theirs is "amazing" and "the best," but wait until you see ours. It took our breath away the moment we walked in, and we knew right then and there this was the spot. No other hotel or condo in Isla Verde can match it, either because they don't have the height (we're on 12th floor) or because they built away from the shore to allow for pools and tennis courts. Sit in our balcony and enjoy the steady breeze while sipping a cup of coffee, a cold beer or a nice glass of wine. If you’re an early riser you’ll catch stunning sunrises, and if you’re lucky enough to be there during a full moon you’ll get to experience a romantic moonrise reflected over the ocean. We truly believe this is the best possible spot in all of Isla Verde, and think you will agree.

Gæsteadgang
Our condo is located near the tip of a narrow peninsula, in between two beaches, one which includes the Ritz Carlton and Marriott hotels, and a second where you'll find the Water Beach Club, and the El San Juan and Intercontinental hotels. Our condo faces the Ritz Carlton beach and, when the tides run low in spring/summer, our rear gate opens right onto the sand. On the opposite side of the condo, out the front gate and across the street, you'll find the El San Juan beach, where the sand is firmly packed all along its two-mile stretch, great for power walking and jogging. Our condo also offers a small private recreational area facing the beach, with two gazebos and BBQs, which may be reserved ahead of time through the building management.

There is a coin-operated laundry room next to the lobby, but otherwise the condo does not offer other amenities one might find at a hotel, such as a pool, concierge or lobby bar. However, on either side of us are two of San Juan's top luxury hotels, the Ritz Carlton and El San Juan, and you can stroll along the sand to their facilities, where you'll find all the typical beach rentals, whether it’s a kayak, jet ski or paraglider, or just a lounge chair and umbrella. Inside their lobbies you may also book fishing trips and guided tours, as well as day trips to some of the neighboring islands such as Vieques and Culebra.

At Amapola 14 you get the best of all worlds, you can relax in your own quiet private balcony overlooking a stunning view, or walk up to one of the many nearby lively resorts, casinos, bars and restaurants. You may opt to book a guided tour alongside fellow travelers, rent a car and drive around the island or simply to walk alone on the beach. It’s your choice.

Carolina, Puerto Rico

Isla Verde is fully geared towards the thousands of visitors who come to its hotels, resorts and condos. English is spoken nearly everywhere, there are 24hr markets and pharmacies nearby, and plenty of excellent restaurants and bars to choose from, all within easy walking distance of the condo.

Isla Verde is also with a short driving distance of the Ocean Park, Condado, Santurce, Miramar and Old San Juan neighborhoods, where the number of high-cuisine options rises exponentially. Some of the best restaurants in the Caribbean are located here, featuring the work of top ranked chefs such as José Enrique González, Wilo Benet, Alfredo Ayala and Xavier Pacheco.

José Enrique's namesake restaurant is just off near the Plaza del Mercado in Santurce, where crowds gather on weekends to enjoy the popular cluster of bars and restaurants, including the also wonderful Vianda, El Pescador and Boronía. Other terrific local cuisine choices go from the very trendy and exquisite Verde Mesa and the very old-fashioned and straightforward Manolín, both in Old San Juan, as well as Comedor, in Miramar, where you'll also find the excellent Melanzana (Italian), Eter (Tapas) and 1041 Gastronomía de Barrio (Argentine). But don't limit yourself to our list, take a moment to explore and discover great finds of your own.

Keep in mind San Juan has the strongest Spanish presence of any Latin American capital, which includes fine Spanish restaurants such as Pelayito, Casa Manolo, Compostela, El Chotis, El Mesón Gallego and El Picoteo, but also the immensely popular and not-to-be-missed Spanish-style delis Kasalta, La Ceiba and Cafetería España, where jamón ibérico, caldo gallego and Spanish wine can be savored side by side with espresso and delicious sweets such as mallorcas, natilla and tembleque.

My wife and I both grew up in San Juan, but for the last thirty years have been living in Los Angeles, CA. It was work that brought us here (I am filmmaker and my wife is an artist and filmmaker), but we miss our island very much. As children, we used to visit the beach regularly with our families, I on the Northeast side of the island and my wife on the Southwest. California has a very beautiful coastline, but nothing compared to the warm waters and palm-covered beaches we were used to. Thankfully, we were able to secure this little home-away-from-home and will be able to enjoy the sunny Puerto Rican beaches regularly once again. Since we live away, the apartment is managed by María 'Tity' O'Neill, who will greet you upon arrival and oversee your stay. She manages multiple units in the area and we had been renting from her for years, so when we needed someone to manage our place there was no better choice.
