About Emmanuelle Bordas
I was born and raised in San Juan Puerto Rico and I LOVE the Sun and the ocean. Even though I moved to New York to follow my dreams as a Singer/ Actress, I still make a point of coming back to vacation as often as I can. Puerto Rico is the perfect place to enjoy wonderfully warm weather all year long, beautiful white sand beaches, incredibly delicious food and friendly, inviting people. On one particular trip, I managed to get a great tan, took an amazing yoga class and enjoyed the best Piña Colada I’ve ever had in my life – all in my neighborhood!! Try to enjoy all that Puerto Rico has to offer and I’m certain that you’ll keep coming back too! Emmanuelle Bordas NY, NY
Emmanuelle Bordas purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Emmanuelle Bordas chose Condado
First of all, the location is in the heart of the metropolitan area in Puerto Rico. Second, Ashford Avenue stands out as a beautifully-landscaped, pedestrian-friendly showcase of Puerto Rico’s more high end style. Aside from that, the neighborhood boasts over 50 restaurants and bars to fit every taste and every budget, so with all of that on offer, there was no question; I had to invest in my own Condado Puerto Rico beach apartment.'
What makes this Condo unique
Major Label and High End Fashion boutiques like Prada, Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Gucci and Cartier are within 10 min. walking distance. Condado Beach is a 3 minute walk from the front door. Old San Juan is only 5 minutes away by car. Puente Dos Hermanos, the famous bridge towards Old San Juan, is about 7 minutes away by car or 15 minutes on foot. LMM International Airport is also about 7 minutes away.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Lovely condo on Ashford!
The condo was very clean, organized, minimalist and had all the basic necesities to make us feel welcome & our stay comfortable. In addition, the location was fantastic! Near shops, restaurants and the ocean! And the owners were available when needed!
Small but comfortable
Emmanuele and her mother were very helpful. The unit is small but very convenient to many restaurants, the beach and buses to get to San Juan Viejo. Even though it is on the 11th floor, the street noise--especially early in the morning--was much louder than we expected. The Security guards were all very helpful. We really enjoyed our stay in San Juan. We rented a car at the Marriott down the street for one day to drive to the rain forest. The rest of the time we used the bus. It was a great stay and nice to get out of the cold January weather at home.
Very good location, convenient and as described -- friendly owner and building staff too
The apartment is compact but comfortable for 2 people/a couple. We found it easy to get around San Juan whether walking or taking a taxi and the building is close to nearby amenities, such as cafes, bars, restaurants, shops with a supermarket a couple blocks away. We thought the bed was rather comfortable and found the apartment itself well equipped for our 4-night stay. It is a good value vs hotels in the area, so you get what you pay for. The owner, her mom and the building staff were all very helpful and friendly, which was a nice bonus. :)
We had such a great experience staying at this apartment. Emanuelle and her mom were so accommodating to our needs. The security staff were very nice and the building and pool were well kept. The apartment was small, but it had everything that we needed. The location was perfect and it was nice being just minutes from the beach as well as steps from the night life. It was loud at night, but that was ok and worth it to be able to be in the heart of San Juan. We will definitely be coming back!
This Condo looked exactly like the pictures it was nice for the price. The owner and her mother Doris were very nice and helpful anytime I had a question she got back to me right away. There was security at the front desk 24 hours a day and they were all very polite. It was steps away from the beach and right next to the best Food Places especially PINKY'S make sure you dine there for brunch we ate there all 4 days it was the best with excellent prices. The noise level was ok being that you are staying on a busy rode but it didnt bother us since we do live in the city. All in all I would stay in here again I will def be coming back to the island to visit.
Great location, great price, a few major disappointments
My husband and I jus
T came back from a great trip to Puerto Rico. We enjoy
Ed staying in this condo as it was close to everything! The condo was fine for the two of us, and we just had a few issues that put a damper on our getaway. First, know that there is street noise and lots of it. It was not a bother to us the first 4 nights but in the last night of our stay a car alarm went off for over an hour and kept us Awake. Obviously, the owner has no control over that, justo something to keep in mind if you are desiring peace and quiet. Second, the temperature of the water in the shower was either scorching hot or super cold. No matter what time of day you showered or how fast you showered it was the same. Could not regulate it:( our biggest complaints are the following: THE BED. It is completely covered in plastic (similiar to the bed wetting covers you put-on a baby crib) and there was only a fitted sheet over that. Also, the pillows were plastic too, so they were not comfortable at all. When you are on a vacation, you expect the bed to be comfortable...this is not. The plastic caused us to sweat even with the air conditioning on. Also, the futon in the living room when you sit on it, it creaks and it is hard and not comfortable at all. After a day of sightseeing or laying at the beach we wanted to relax and cool off and felt like we really couldn't. It was hard to snuggle up with your spouse on a hard futon or a papasan chair :( Also, there was a washer and dryer on our floor but they were out of order when we were there. The great thing about this condo is location, location, location! It is in the heart of Condado and the beach and many restaurants are so close, the grocery store is nearby, and Emmanuelle was always quick to answer and return emails. The condo is super clean and stocked with everything you need in the kitchen. If you are looking for a clean condo at a great price, this is it.
Hi! Thanks for your review. I am sorry that you had major disapointments.:(
I wish you would had brought up the issue while you were there to resolve it. About the noise, it is a bit noisy since it is one of the most touristic areas both in daytime, and night life in Puerto Rico. The mattress and pillows have a plastic covers for hygiene purposes for all guest. It is impossible for me to have new pillows and mattress for every guest.... As far as the washing machine and dryer, there are machines on every floor which you could easily use every time you need them. Anyhow I am glad you were able to enjoy the location, beaches and the beauties of my beautiful tropical island and I will try to fix these issues for the future,thank you again for your stay.
