Beautiful, contemporary furnishings make this 19th floor, corner studio a great place to spend your vacation in Puerto Rico.
The apartment has a clean, compact kitchen with all the necessities to prepare anything from sandwiches to gourmet meals.
The living/dining area is extremely spacious with a comfortable large sofa-bed, marble end tables and a marble dining table that will seat four. There is a 32 inch color TV with cable/DVD on a moveable cart so you can watch TV from bed or sofa. There is also a speaker system for your IPOD or MP3 player.
There is a full-size Murphy bed that gives you the option of more space for entertaining. The mattress is new and very comfortable. The entire North wall of the apartment is glass...and opens on to a balcony furnished with chairs and chaise lounge.
Vertical blinds allow for privacy at night, filtered light during the day or when fully opened: a spectacular sweeping view of the ocean and city. There is a large closet for storage, and a beautifully tiled bathroom with tub/shower, vanity and window!
The south wall is mirrored which doubles the light and creates a much larger feeling of space in this approximate 500 square foot studio. The 12 X 12 ceramic floor tiles keep the apartment cool, clean and comfy.
The Ashford-Imperial has a security guard in the lobby and access to the foyer is restricted to guests with keys. The rear lobby (pool access) offers vending machines and FREE wireless internet access and also available in the apartment for more convenience. There are several designer boutiques in the building and one lovely café with outdoor seating - great for people watching along Ashford Avenue.
The pool deck is located off the lobby level and is very private and peaceful offering comfortable chaise lounges, picnic tables and umbrellas, outdoor shower and pool side lavatory. There is a coin operated laundry room on the second floor. Additionally, there is a gym/exercise room on the second floor for guests to use free of charge....and it's brand new!
Why stay in an expensive hotel when you can have hotel luxury and the ability to cook/prepare meals when you want to. The Marriott Hotel is across the street and has a gym/health club/spa services/pool/beach/tennis and garage parking...as well as world class restaurants and casino.
Tours of the island as well as rental cars can be arranged in the lobby. There are 24 hour restaurants and drug stores as well as an internet café, International Fitness Center (Gym), Banco Popular, UPS Store, Dry Cleaners and Grocery all with in blocks of the Ashford-Imperial. Historic Old San Juan is a ten minute taxi ride away...or 75 cents by city bus!
We are a young couple with two kids looking for adventure and relaxing lifestile. We like to travel and share our experiences with other people.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2008
Condado is the LOCATION to be in Puerto Rico. It is the local 5th avenue, it has many attractions for all ages and access to the best beaches. Almost everything is Walking Distance.
You can't beat this gem of a condo in the heart of Condado. Perched 19 floors up, the ocean is yours! The wall of glass and comfortable terrace are great. I consider Puerto Rico my home-away-from-home, and this condo is always my first choice. Enjoy it!
