Overview

Photos and Description of this holiday condo in Condado San Juan - Stella Maris 5B

Studio, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 2

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.

About Owner Eric Brahm

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.

Why Owner Eric Brahm chose Condado San Juan

I chose to live in Condominium Stella Maris primarily for location. You simply can not beat the view and being on the beach at the end of Condado Avenue, we are right in the heart of things.

The building has 11 floors and has a neighborly feel to it.

The wall of glass doors almost make 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.

What makes this condo unique

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..

I like to stroll around the Condado lagoon in the early morning to get exercise and fresh air.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment was a perfect vacation spot

When you arrive, the view takes your breath away. Pictures can't do it justice. The apartment looks right out on Condado beach. The location is ideal, right in the heart of things. The kitchen had everything you could need and I did some of the cooking but there were many restaurants near by and I had some great meals. I had a wonderful stay and hope to return soon and often.

A Perfect Getaway In San Juan!

  • 5 out of 5
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.

The perfect vacation home

  • 5 out of 5
It was the perfect vacation place, right in front of the beach and the condo has everything you need and close/walking distance to the restaurants/bars. Erich is the most gracious, very accommodating host that I have ever met.

PERFECTION!!

  • 5 out of 5
I travel to San Juan at least once a year and I *ALWAYS* stay here. This place is absolute perfection!! Not only is it centrally located to everything, its comfort and design make it the perfect "home away from home." The condo is literally right on the beach and just high enough up to where you can always leave the curtains open and listen to the waves crash against the shore. Eric has gone out of his way to make the decor stylish and the condo convenient and cozy. The King-Sized bed is super comfortable and every amenity imaginable, from kitchen cutlery to beach towels, is readily available. Eric is extremely easy to work with and has by far perhaps the best spot in Condado. I almost wish I wasn't writing this review, just so I could keep the condo my own little secret so it was always available to me. I love it here and I can't wait to get back again soon!!

Perfect Beach Studio in PR

  • 5 out of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this studio! It was clean, convenient and located right on the beach. Close by is the Walgreens, car rental(s) and a whole host of restaurants and bars. We actually walked a lot and even made the hike (45m) one morning to Old San Juan which was actually a nice exploration experience! It is exactly how it is pictured and described online. Eric was a pleasure to work with. The studio itself had everything you could possibly need, the best part was two boogie boards which we used for our ocean swim every evening! Loved sleeping to the sound of the waves as well. We hope to return. Muchas Gracias! :D

Owner's Response: Thanks for a great review. I love listening to the waves at night as well. I am glad that the apartment was exactly as you expected. It is difficult to show in photos how stunning the view actually is. I hope you are able to return soon and often.

Perfect place to stay for a beach vacation

  • 5 out of 5
This studio's location is perfect. It's right on the beach and within walking distance from everything you need: restaurants, bars, car rental, bus station, Walgreen's. We stayed in for breakfast and the Walgreen's on the corner had everything we needed. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare any meal. The big sliding doors facing the beach give you an amazing view and breeze.

Eric was a pleasure to work with. He was very helpful and responsive throughout the entire process and answered and addressed any concerns we had prior to our arrival. He has provided his visitors with everything they need: cooler, ice packs, boogie boards, binder full of recommendations, menus from nearby restaurants, etc. We hope to return to San Juan in the future and if we do, Eric's studio will certainly be our first choice.

The condo 5B was perfect. more than I expected

  • 5 out of 5
Everything was provided. Roomy, I miss it already. So relaxing. I almost didn't want
to leave the room. Just read, look and listen to the sound of the waves. I kept the
sliders open.
