Photos and Description of this holiday condo in Condado San Juan - Stella Maris 7C
Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2) On the Beach
New to the rental market after a total renovation. Contemporary and spacious, Stella Maris 7C is an elegant studio apartment overlooking beautiful Condado Beach. Condominium Stella Maris is ideally located between the San Juan Marriot Resort and Stellaris Casino and the La Concha Renaissance Resort a few blocks to the west. The seventh 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 (facing North) opens up to a small balcony to enjoy the tropical breezes and fantastic ocean view. The black-out curtains will allow you to sleep late in the morning or nap mid-day. You get a nice view looking back to the city as you enter or depart the apartment.
The approximately 400 sq. ft. studio apartment has air conditioning and a ceiling fan. For much of the year there is enough tropical breeze blowing in that you won’t require either. There is a comfortable king size foam-topped bed. The living area has a cozy love seat and dining area looking out at the sea.
The kitchen has a 2 burner glass cooktop, microwave, toaster, blender, small toaster oven and coffee maker. It is fully equipped with plenty of glasses, silverware, pots, pans and utensils.
The apartment has a wall mounted swivel, 40' flat screen cable television and a DVD player. Wifi is provided free of charge. The alarm clock is also an ipod docking station. All linens and towels are provided, including beach towels. There are sand chairs for the beach as well as a small cooler. There is an iron and an ironing board. A coin-operated laundry room is on the ground floor. There is also a hair dryer in the newly renovated travertine tiled bathroom.
Each floor has a separate key for the elevator and another for the stairwell which helps to ensure both security and privacy. The well-maintained twelve story condominium is separated from the beach by only a decorative cement wall. A designated space in the gated parking area might be available ($10 per night) when arrangements are made at booking time. There is also limited on street parking and several parking lots nearby.
Tours out on the island can be arranged by the concierge desk at the Marriott Hotel, next door. Wind surfing, jet skiing, deep sea fishing, and scuba diving are all available in the metropolitan area. A cyber cafe and several gyms are within the neighborhood. Virtually any activity you'd expect at a seaside resort can be found in San Juan!
All you should need to bring with you is your clothing and your smile. The sun, surf and tropical breezes are all provided free. Anything else can be purchased from Walgreens, a block away on the corner, or from several small convenience stores nearby. A well-stocked, larger grocery store is about a 15 minute walk or 3 minute drive.There is a 5 night minimum requirement and the calendar is updated daily. Please check it for availability.
A 5 night minimum stay is required.

I have been employed for the last decade as an airline flight attendant. I have lived in Puerto Rico for more than 30 years, residing in Stella Maris since 1990. 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 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 glass windows and balcony 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.
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.
