Bright spacious studio apartment in a building directly on a pristine stretch of white sandy beach. Condominium Stella Maris is centrally located at 1 Condado Avenue in the heart of El Condado, across from the pool of the San Juan Stellaris Marriott Resort and Casino.
The fifth floor location allows for spectacular views, but is still low enough for you to be lulled to sleep by the surf at night. A full wall of sliding glass doors on the ocean side opens up to tropical breezes and a panoramic vista. Black out curtains allow you to sleep late in the morning or have a siesta when in the mood.
This cheery studio apartment was recently renovated with travetine floors throughout including the bathroom, a new flat screen TV and high speed internet There is original artwork throughout and you certainly know you're in the Caribbean. This rent by owner condo is spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you might need to relax and enjoy your vacation in Puerto Rico.
I have been employed for more than the last decade as an airline flight attendant. I have lived in Puerto Rico for more than 30 years, residing in Stella Maris since 1987. I love living in San Juan which has a nice mix of beach and city and enjoys almost perfect weather the entire year long. I live in the same building as the rental which allows me to attend quickly to any issues that arise. I strive to provide the level of service that I would like to receive if I were renting form someone else.
I chose to live in Condominium Stella Maris primarily for location. You simply can not beat the view. Being on the beach at the end of Condado Avenue, we are right in the heart of things. When you walk out on the balcony you feel as if you were out at sea on a cruise ship. The waves lapping the beach lull you to sleep and the breeze blowing in is soothing and comforting.
The building itself has 11 floors and a friendly neighborly feel to it.
Almost anything you want to do is accessible by foot. There are a multitude of restaurants in the neighborhood, from fast food to five star and shops from Cartier to Walgreens. For exercise you can swim in the ocean, stroll around the lagoon or go to one of several gyms nearby. The place can be either peaceful and relaxing or there is plenty of lively action in the casinos and clubs in the area..
Personally I like to stroll around the nearby Condado lagoon in the early morning for fresh air and exercise.
We fell in love with this studio at first sight: when we arrived a gentle breeze was blowing in from the ocean through the beautifully decorated apartment. The view from the balcony is simply breathtaking! The beach is just feet in front of the building and the sound of waves breaking on the shore provides immediate relaxation.
The apartment is perfectly clean, even to our own high standards. Air conditioning makes the evenings cool and comfortable. Water pressure is good, providing a soothing shower and easy cleaning of the kitchen. Speaking of which, we love to cook and we were delighted by all of the little extras in the kitchen cupboards, making us feel right at home.
Security is excellent, which is always an important consideration. The building is gated, with multiple locked doors and the elevator requires a specific key for each floor. The street is quiet and well policed 24 hours a day.
The location of the studio is fantastic: there is a large Walgreens just a few steps down the street, numerous excellent restaurants nearby (our favorite is Ropa Vieja Grill), and shopping for every budget, from Gucci to surfing shops. nightlife is pretty good too, with salsa and merengue dancing at several venues in the neighborhood. The owner went out of his way to make sure that we were well informed and that our satisfaction was complete. He's a real gentleman, and this really added to our enjoyment of a great getaway.
We can't wait to book our next stay - this place is clean, comfortable, well appointed and it is central to everything we love about Puerto Rico.
Eric's condo was the perfect place for us to spend our honeymoon! It is a magical place right on the beach and you could sit all day and listen to the waves and feel the refreshing breeze! We can't say enough how perfect this place is for two people. It is beautifully decorated, and most importantly, clean! We wish we could go back right now!
Studio was just as described. The location was ideal, there was a CVS and Walgreens right on the corner and taxis that were available right outside of the condo at all times. The beach was gorgeous and morning coffee on the balcony was delightful. Definitely recommend the condo and hope to visit again soon!
If you want to sleep w/the doors open so you can hear the ocean and enjoy the breeze, this is the perfect spot! I chose to stay here instead of at a U.S. hotel nearby where a conference I was attending was being held. The studio was half the price, very clean, and situated near lots of eateries. I highly recommend it.
My wife and I spent 5 nights at Eric's beachfront condo at the beginning of April and couldn't have been happier with this property. The condo was spotless and beautifully decorated with local artwork. Once you open the gigantic patio doors to overlook Condado beach it feels like you're in a private cabana directly on the beach but with 5 story view of beachfront. The patio comes out a few extra feet than the neighboring condo's making it more private and adding to the on the right on the beach vibe. The ocean breeze and the sound of waves crashing while you fall asleep in a luxurious king size bed is one of the most tranquil experiences imaginable. Within a few block radius of the front door you can find a variety of bars & restaurants( the food and cocktails in San Juan are amazing), a Starbucks, CVS, Walgreens, a health food store that has a great selection of produce, and the Marriot hotel and casino that offers daily tours to explore the island. This condo is truely flawless in every way imaginable and the owner Eric goes above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay. Cheers!
This rental checked and exceeded every expectation my wife and I had coming to Puerto Rico. It was a 15 minute taxi ride from the airport to an outstanding, modern, comfortable, clean, relaxing space with a million-dollar view. It was great being so close to Walgreens and CVS for daily groceries and snacks. There were awesome restaurants within walking distance, always felt safe on the sidewalks and on the beach. We used the concierge at the Marriott to schedule the Yunque Rainforest ATV excursion one day and a deluxe walking tour through Old San Juan and the Casillo for another day. We also took a taxi to the Bacardi Rum Factory where we did a historic tour. The other days it was great to hang by the white sandy beach and do some boogie boarding and lounging. We went at the end of March and had no problem with mosquitoes, don't know if the time of the year or if this was just well managed. Of the restaurants we tried in the area, my favorite would be Di Parma Trattoria, my wife's was Pikayo at the Hilton. Definitely would recommend this property to friends and relatives and we look forward to coming back!
Located directly on the beach at #2 Condado Ave, between the Stellaris Marriott Resort and Casino and La Concha Hotel, in the heart of the Condado, the best tourist area in Puerto Rico.
There is a vast selection of restaurants within easy walking distance, from fast food to elegant- you choose based- on your taste and your budget.
Other Activities: There are various tour operator who will take you zip lining, spelunking, rappelling and hiking. El Yunque rain forest is a reasonable drive and can easily be added with a trip to Luquillo beach. Paddle boards, kayaks and kite surfing is available for rent in the area. There are casinos and night clubs near by.
There is a good gym a few blocks away and the health club at the Marriot is another alternative for a work out. I personally like to do the loop down Ashford, over the bridge and back by the lagoon for a walk/run of just under 3 miles to start the day.
