Best Deal on Condado Beach in Puerto Rico

  • 5 of 5

This is condo is truly a hidden gem right on Condado Beach. The condo is a small, cute, studio, with everything you would need for a vacation-get-away.


The Condo is just a stone’s throw away from the treasure which is Old San Juan, and directly across from the Marriot Hotel. Just a few steps away is Ashford Ave, where there is shopping, including Wallgreens and a gym. You can literally stay here with out having to take a cab to eat our buy things. If you do want to book a tour or see things, the Marriot next door has cabs, as well as a tourism desk. It’s very safe and comfortable at Stella Maris, so it’s not a problem to be out and about.


In my mind’s eye, it’s like staying at your favorite Aunts place. The owners keep the condo clean, and stock the unit with everything thing you would need for a trip. We were happy to find a coffee maker, pots and pans and utensils in the kitchen area. The bathroom was recently renovated is very sleek and modern. During our stay, we were able sleep with the balcony door open and feel the soothing ocean breeze, with out having to put on the air con. We spent hours having coffee on the balcony, and looking out on to the blue ocean, as far as the eye can see.

Additional Stuff We Enjoyed

We saved a lot of money by staying here because we did not have to go out to eat for every meal, and we could do our laundry right on the property. Next year when it gets cold back in Chicago, we will come back to this condo for sure! The pictures really can't express just how great this place is.

Owner's Response: We created our "home away from home," with the hope that all, who experience our getaway retreat, will leave feeling just as happy as we do. We, too, share the love of "looking out onto the blue ocean, as far as the eye can see." We invite you to come see for yourself.

best of all worlds

Let me start off by saying that this place was amazing and just perfect! I had my doubts at first about renting a property without ever meeting the person face to face and going off the reviews. To help with this hesistant feeling the property owner Gloria emailed me and gave her personal phone number to contact any time. This was great due the amount of questions I had and so worried that it was a scam. Gloria made sure this was an easy smooth process and I did not need to work. She is truly a peoples person and want you to enjoy yourself while in PR. I would give her 10 stars just for her customer service. She is amazing and everyone should rent this property when they come to PR.

Ok now about the property. The property was just like the pictures which was one part that had me nervous. Every detail in picture matches the details in person. The bathroom was a perfect size, the frig was a perfect size the closet was more than enough room. It had everything in the cabinets to cook and eat with each day. The bed was so comfortable... my wife and I slept well each night. The flat screen tv was a perfect size for the studio. I could go on and on about how everything was so amazing. The priceless part are the views from you bed and when you walk into the studio....OMG its amazing. Coming back everyday to this studio just made you want to class Gloria and tell her you were never leaving! The balcony was great with the two chairs.. This place is literally on the beach. The other most important part is the security of the building...every access point had a key to get thru..my wife was very comfortable and thought that was great. I could write so much more but I think you all get the point that this is the best place to rent with the best owner and the price is better than any hotel in the area for what you are getting and more.!!!! Thanks again Gloria look forward to renting again in the future and referring many to you for this property..

My husband and I just returned from Condado beach where we spent the week for our honeymoon. We were BLOWN AWAY by the condo and its amazing views and adorable charm!! We literally do not want to stay anywhere else in Puerto Rico! The condo was beautiful, clean, with the best views of the beach and the ocean! The pictures DO NOT LIE and are a 100% accurate representation of the condo and the views. If anything, the pics don't do this place justice! Gloria was wonderful to work with and she made us feel truly at home during our stay! A very secure and safe area, with police patrol by car, by beach, and on foot everywhere and luxury hotels, restaurants, and stores all within a 30 second walk! We literally could have stayed in the condo the entire time and it still would have been the best vacation EVER!! Thank you, Gloria, for making this vacation so wonderful with your affordable, adorable, and beautiful "home away from home". We will definitely be back!!!

-Mario and Marcie

Owner's Response: WOW, I couldn't ask for a better review. I'm always thrilled for honeymooners and I appreciate their desire for a memorable stay in my beach front "homeaway from home." My goal is to have every vacationer feel the way this couple felt. Come see for yourself...

What a view!

  • 4 of 5

This studio apt was very well appointed and the view was GORGEOUS! Gloria (the owner) was very accommodating. The weather was great and the beach was sandy and warm. There was an overabundance of restaurants within walking distance plus two casinos. The only critizism was the stay was too short! Thanks, Gloria!

My wife and I spent 1 month here getting away from the cold north climate. We were very satisfied. The unit was well maintained and clean. The ocean front windows and balcony provides a spectacular view of the ocean and beach. Gloria, the owner, provides good support and takes care of any problems you may have. The studio is on the beach and close to shopping and restaurants. Will probably stay here again !!

Amazing, amazing view; gorgeous, perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

You really can't ask for much more than this - the view is just stunning - waking up in the apartment is like a dream.

If you can draw your eyes away from the view you'll see an apartment that is recently renovated and the place is spotlessly clean. The bathroom is really nicely done - and the shower floor has these cool rocks that massage your feet as you shower. The fridge is big enough to fit loads of drinks that you can enjoy on the deck for sunset (or sunrise) drinks. And there's a full closet that you can hang all your clothes in and loads of coathangers (not hugely important but VERY helpful!).

Location wise you can't get any closer to the beach than - on it. Condado has some fun restaurants and things - but there's definitely more to choose from in Old San Juan - which is a very short taxi ride away.

The owner was super friendly, helpful and sincere. She just wanted us to have a nice time and I think she would have done anything to make sure that happened.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
