About the property

Oceanfront Condo on Beautiful Condado Beach

As an alternative to a simple hotel room, this condo offers an entirely different vacation experience.

It will be like having your own private home, directly on a lovely Caribbean beach.

Imagine your own private balcony that overlooks a turquoise ocean, with a beautiful coral

sand beach directly below you. This is not just a pretty view. You are ON the Beach!

The unobstructed 180 degree view is breathtaking.

The sliding doors in the living room open completely to your private balcony, so the beach becomes part of your living area. The living room and dining area are spacious, and provide lots of room for entertaining, or just relaxing. The living room sofa is a queen sized futon and opens into a queen sized bed, so the condo can accommodate 4 adults.

The kitchen is a separate room Instead of going 'out' to eat for every meal, you can cook 'in' if you prefer, as you have a complete kitchen, with everything you need to prepare gourmet meals.

The bedroom is a separate room as well with a large walk-in closet, and bathroom attached. The bedroom has a large sliding picture window that faces the ocean, so at night, with the window open, you'll feel like you are lying on the beach,

and the sound of the waves will lull you to sleep. The bed is Queen sized with an extra thick mattress.

There is a Pack 'N Play available for younger children.

The condo comes furnished with all linens, towels, kitchen equipment,

stereo, CD player, flat screen cable TV, VCR/DVD,

free Wi-Fi Wireless Cable, Ipod/Iphone plug in,

and many other amenities. The condo is fully AirConditioned.

All you need to bring are your clothing and music.

The Condo is in Condado, on the beach, next to the Marriott and a 10 minute drive/ taxi

ride from San Juan airport (Muniz Marin) or a 10 min Taxi from the cruise ship docks.

If you are not familiar with Condado Beach area, it is perhaps the most popular, and

well maintained, beach in Puerto Rico. The condo ' Stella Maris'

is on the beach, facing the ocean, and 4 floors up (the building has an

elevator). The building is very secure. The property is fully enclosed and gated.

A key is required to enter the compound as well as the lobby. The elevator

also is keyed which will only open to your specific floor. There is a Laundry

room on the ground floor of the building with coin operated washers and

dryers (cost is $2.00 per load).

The Condado area is the main tourist area of San Juan and home to many

casinos, fine restaurants, grocery stores, tourist shops, all within

walking distance, and a 10 minute drive to Old San Juan and close

to the highways that will get you to the rest of Puerto Rico.

Condado is a 'walking area', you don't need a car to get around.

Shopping, restaurants, casinos are nearby.

There is a fitness center, and a Cyber Cafe, about a block away. Taxis

and buses are always available as the 'main drag ' is a half block away.

The Marriott Hotel is right next door and has a great Casino, several excellent

restaurants, with dining on the beach, and live music every night. Most of

the island excursions ( Parasailing, snorkeling, Horseback riding etc.)

can be arranged through them with the operators picking you up from the

Hotel lobby. Although being so close to such a busy area, the condo is

very quiet, except of course for the constant sound of the waves crashing

on the beach below..

This is not just a pretty view. You are ON the Beach!

For more pictures and a virtual tour:

San Juan Airport is a 10 minute drive/taxi ride away.

Very secure property, with private Lobby, and Elevator.

Walking distance to all attractions within San Juan, a 5 minute taxi ride to Old San Juan, and close to the highway to 'El Yunque' rain forest and the rest of Puerto Rico.

Amenities:: All Linens/Towels Provided. NO Cleaning Fees

TV (Cable), VCR/DVD, Wireless Cable, CD player, Tape Deck, Phone, Air Conditioning.

Laundry Facilities on Property.

Fully Equipped Kitchen: Refrigerator , Stove, Microwave, Blenders, Juicers, Coffee Makers, Toaster Oven.

Activities:: Condado Beach is a very beautiful, clean (beach sand is screened nightly), and well maintained beach.

Excellent for Body Surfing, Swimming, Parasailing, or Just Relaxing on the Balcony and Admiring.

Area:: Old San Juan is a 5 minute Taxi ride away. Explore the entire 16th Century Walled City in an afternoon.

'El Yunque' Rainforest is within a 30 min. picturesque drive away.

Explore the underground Caves at Cumuy, or the Stellar Observatory at Areciebo. Ponce, Puerto Rico's second largest city is within 2 hours. The trip over the mountains is worth the drive.

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely stay at Fred's condo again. The location and the view were breath taking. Fred was very accommodating to us while planning our trip there. You can walk a few steps from the condo and enjoy the beautiful ocean. View from balcony was unbelievable. Shops and restaurants were in walking distance. No need to rent a car. Took a tour bus to La Mina Falls. Booked our trip to the falls right next door at the Marriott. The trip was a 10!

Just as described.

  • 5 of 5

Fred's condo at Stella Maris is true to its listing. It is directly on the beach, 3 floors up! It was packed with everything I needed during my stay. and throughout the Condado area.

I rented a car and used the Marriott parking lot next door for $19 day. Charlie rental car was right up the street. Walgreens and CVS had just about everything I needed and were a two minute walk away, as was Starbucks. The beach was great (they machine rake it every morning).

Fred was quick to reply to me when needed and was a great host. The condo worked well for me.

Communion with the Sea!

  • 5 of 5

You can not imagine how we enjoyed this condo and our stay in San Juan! We loved every detail of the décor of the apartment, how nice and comfortable it is! And this proximity and communion with the sea, the sound of the waves, the sunrises and sunsets! It has been a total break!

We've already adopted this place, if we go back to PR we'd definitely rent this little paradise again.

We highly recommend this condo!

  • 5 of 5

“We highly recommend this condo. Fantastic location on Condado Beach--you really are right ON the beach, as the photos show. The unit is exactly as it appears in the photos and description, no hidden surprises. Fred is a fantastic host, with tremendous communication each step of the way. He provides renters with a treasure trove of helpful practical advice, including annotated maps, directions, suggestions for restaurants and attractions, and he was always available for prompt email consultation if questions arose during our stay there. It was a pleasure to do business with him.”

Great vacation location.

  • 5 of 5

I had such a great time in Puerto Rico! The condo was exactly what we wanted and the location cannot be beat! We did a lot of traveling-so we were gone most days. With that said, the condo was perfect. The view from the living room was just amazing.I felt very safe inside and outside of the condo. Getting to Old San Juan, Isla Verde, etc was no problem. I would highly recommend his place.

Amazing condo on the beach

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I contacted Fred the Owner of this amazing condo, the process was seamless! We sent a portion of payment and Fred was always quick to repond to emails with our many questions.. Having never been to Puerto Rico before, we wanted to experience the local part of the Island as well. He sent us step by step instructions of where to go.. One of our favorites was the deserted beaches that went on for miles. We arrived early and wanted to check in early and he suggested we go to the condo and drop off our luggage and go down to the beach as the cleaning guy was still cleaning from previous guests. The beach is literally steps away. The condominium complex itself is very well kept and maintained and everyone there was so nice and welcoming. Being on the 3rd floor, at night we went to sleep to the sound of the waves and woke up to them as well..From the condo you would never know that you are in the heart of the city. We were in walking distance to Bars, restaurants and CVS and Walgreen's are right there as well.. If you need a cab all you have to do is go to the street a few steps away. We were there for 8 nights and it was very difficult to leave . The people of Puerto Rico are very friendly. When we arrived home I returned the keys via mail to Fred..Within in a week we received our full deposit back from Fred.. Fred has been a property owner in Puerto Rico for 20 years and was pretty much our tour guide from afar.. This was absolutely by far the best vacation experience we have ever had. Thank you Fred!! We will be returning

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. I am always happy to see that guests enjoyed their stay in Puerto Rico, and that the condo helped make the vacation even better. I try to make the rental process go smooth, so that guests feel like they are at home, with everything they need easily available. Reviews like yours let me know that I am doing a good job. Fred
