San Juan Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Studio Suite, Sleeps 4

This is an excellent rental for two couples. The apartment offers 400 square feet of living space with a fully equipped kitchen and four-piece bathroom. It includes FREE Internet WIFI and Air Conditioning. The unit features newly installed sliding doors on the beach side with air conditioner. Walk from the building directly onto the beach, bring a book and rent a lounge chair for a sunny morning or afternoon. The beach/ocean view is awesome! You'll be lulled to sleep by the surf. This vacation rental is just two miles down the beach from Old San Juan. Enjoy the best of the West Indies and the soft on-shore Trade winds. We offer affordable private tours of the island including snorkeling, exploring the rain forest, El Yunque, and shopping in Old San Juan.

Choosing the Condado Area : Condado Beach has been the premiere holiday destination in San Juan since the 1960's! That's because of location. It is convenient to the financial and educational centers of the city; to Old San Juan, the vibrant 500 year-old colonial center home to remarkable festivals, dining and sightseeing; and to the International Airport which is the hub of the Caribbean. It is also because of the beach. The surf at Condado Beach is popular with locals who test their skills on weekends. Within two blocks of the Apartment are half a dozen hotels with casinos, restaurants, shops, and two car rental agencies. It's a vacation mecca. You don't need a car to enjoy yourself fully at Condado. When you want to take a day to explore the island, simply arrange to rent a car within two blocks and drop it off at night when you return. Condado is a premiere destination to which you can return again and again.

Expecting Comfort and Security : Condado Beach is a well established tourist area in San Juan. Our apartment building, Condominium Stella Maris, is located on the West side of Condado Avenue right on the beach. The building is a gated community where you will feel comfortable and secure, yet enjoy taking in the local beach scene from the spectacular view from your apartment. The elevator is keyed, and only those with the key to your floor can access it. There are four apartments on each floor, so you will most likely get to know your neighbors. We do not compete with major hotel chains, but neither do we charge the $300/night rates! We pride ourselves in providing apartments that are clean and functional. Each year we stay in the apartments and add amenities to upgrade them. So each time you come you will note changes and improvements for your enjoyment. In 2005 we installed new glass windows that make up the beach-side wall of each apartment and included new, larger capacity air conditioners. Come to enjoy yourself.

Enjoying the Apartment: The unit reflects our personal tastes and it might feel like you are entering someone else's space... which is what you are doing when you rent. We love San Juan and Puerto Rico, we try to spend as much time as we can there! We rent the unit out whenever we are not on Island. The apartment have a bathroom with tub and shower, a kitchen with full sized fridge and stove, microwave, all the pots, pans and utensils that you need to prepare basic food and keep your costs down. There is a TV with cable and a phone for local calls. You can connect to the Internet using modem (and AOL etc) and there are hot spots to be found at hotels and restaurants for using WiFi. We supply linens and towels so all you have to do is bring some clothes, personal items and a bathing suit to enjoy yourself. Think of us when you are planning your trip to Puerto Rico.

About Tom or Susan

We are retired and invite you to enjoy San Juan, the friendly people of Puerto Rico and these oceanfront apartments like we do.

Tom or Susan purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Tom or Susan chose San Juan

These apartments are in a wonderfully maintained, privately owned 10-story building built in 1965 that is now in the midst of towers owned by major hotel chains.

What makes this apartment unique

Everything is within walking distance and you don't have to rent a car to get about. And when you want to drive around the Island, you can rent a car for the day from a major car rental agency that is across the street from us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just returned from a 2 week stay in Puerto Rico. The first week over New Years was in Old San Juan and we really enjoyed the city life. Our second week at the beach was perfect also. We were in 7A which is the one bedroom and right on the beach. We never used the air conditioner altho it was very warm out....we left the slider open and kitchen window and had a wonderful breeze. The condo is 40 years old and a rental so it has seen a lot of use by non owners and it does show a bit but it is easy enough to over look with the beautiful view. It was very clean and the owners and property managers are very helpful and I appreciated them responding, especially because it was a holiday week. Our cable tv box went out and was replaced as soon as I notified them. The condo is very secure with all the keys to get in. The area felt very safe. George, the on site maintenance man was also very helpful. He was in the process of updating the laundry room....painting and new machines. I would advise any one wanting to rent a car to do it on line. There are 4 car rental agency within walking distance we rented one for the day and returned it same day at Avis. They do have an after hours drop off. We did check a parking lot and could park for 24 hours for $8.50 which wasn't bad. There are a few parking spots by building but most of the street is reserved for Taxi. There is a bus stop near by and 75 cents exact change will take you into Old San Juan. There are many restaurant and casino near by, all within walking distance. Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5
I rented this unit for one week and it was just as described. The location was awesome. You are literally in walking distance to restaraunts, stores, casinos, and best of all your right on the beach. Tom the owner, was a joy to deal with. He provided good detailed information which helped me enjoy my stay. I look forward to using this rental in the future.

DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE

  • 5 of 5
Since my girlfriend and I were coming from NYC we were looking for an apartment located right on the beach. The view from our apartment was awesome! Literally we were right on Condado beach AND the beach was perfect. Clear blue, warm, and a little wavey. The apartment has everything an apartment should have. We had a stove, microwave, fridge, couch, tv, comfortable bed, walk in closet etc... The location was pretty awesome too. You are surrounded by restaurants of all sorts and they were pretty good. PLUS Marriott really helped us out for the two weeks we were there. We rented a car for three days and drove about 300 miles. The concierge helped us reserve our tours to the Catamaran, Camuy caves, Ecoquest ziplining/atv, El Yunque, Bacardi. The prices were also decent. We also went to the beach every single day. Seriously, I did not want to leave this place. I wished I booked the entire Summer to stay here.

I'm hesitant to post a review ! Why ??? Read on ,,,,,,

I'm hesitant to post a review ! Why ??? Read on ,,,,,,
  • 5 of 5
Why ? Because I don't want anyone else to rent this little gem in the heart of Condado !! We just returned today after a weeks stay in this lovely studio. The building is secure and you really can't get closer to the beach without getting wet. The apartment is beach front with the most amazing view of the ocean ! The location is prime, you walk to all restaurants,bars within a minute. There were plenty of clean towels,two beach chairs,umbrella. Lots of cutlery,pots pans. All you really need. Just walk outside and boom ,,your on the beach. We just loved the place. The manager on site is friendly and Vilma is a joy to deal with. We had no issues during our stay at all. Internet was great, we didn't watch much TV but did rent a movie at Walgreens through red box and watched it one night. The windows open the width of the whole apartment and the ocean is all yours. The owner is professional and lovely to deal with. We booked for January immediately on our second day. Two of us stayed in the apartment and had plenty of space to enjoy. Just book it and enjoy. This is a beach front apartment and offers relaxed vacationers an opportunity to enjoy a perfect view and location. The other vacationers and residents in the building were friendly and nice too. Having been going to PR for 30 years I've found my new home. We loved it !!

Incredible view from a tidy and comfortable condo for a great price

  • 5 of 5
My fifteen year old son and I stayed for four nights.

This little condo was pretty fantastic. It was tidy, the beds and linens were comfortable, the floor was easy to sweep clean each night. The bathroom was tiled, immaculate, and there were plenty of towels.

Also, the owners were responsive and really thoughtful. When I reserved the condo, they sent along a great little guide they put together themselves - including information about all the local restaurants (so helpful). Such a delightful experience.

AND I can't convey enough how spectacular the view is from this condo! The windows slide wide open for a great breeze and the lulling sound of the waves. Lots of great memories.

Amazing location for a great price!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I were renting for a weekend competition in Old San Juan and we couldn't have been happier with it. It is an ideal location in the heart of the Condado with access directly to the beach and plenty of restaurants, bars, stores, and casinos within a few blocks that are very safe to walk. The studio was very neat and clean and the kitchen very useful for all of those meals that you just wanted to do quickly (and cheaply!).

On top of all of that, Tom and Susan were VERY nice to work with as we set up the rental...all in all, this was a very positive experience!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying here! We traveled as a group of 3 girlfriends and the set-up was very comfortable for us. Very clean and comfortable and so secure. Friendly residents and other visitors in the building. The view is amazing, and management was always prompt, professional, honest, and kind in all interactions. Renting a car from a neighborhood agency and parking with the Marriott across the street were both super-easy. The Walgreens across the street is delightfully convenient. A wonderful price for what you get!

FYI: a hair dryer, iron, 2 beach chairs, 2 boogie boards, and a beach umbrella are available. The condo's ad doesn't emphasize this and they're nice features! Also, cabs are always easy to get because the cab stand for the Marriott is right across the street.

Suggestion: A notepad where guests can leave reviews of local places for future guests might be fun.

We loved the Turkish food at Ali Baba nearby.

We would definitely recommend staying here to friends and relatives. You will be pleased.

Thank you so much!
