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.
I want to thank Kay for trying to post this and for all the information that she provided!
