Wonderful Ocean front condo with Beautiful Views!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment that we opened the door, the views were just breath taken. The pictures are exactly the way the place looks. A clean, comfortable condo with all of the amenities that you made need. 2 chairs, 2 large beach towels and a small cooler were awaiting for you to go enjoy sitting on the beach. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony each morning sipping our coffee taken in the beautiful views. Each night we left the slider door open a bit to enjoy the sounds of the crashing waves. This location was just minutes away from everything. You have a Walgreens and CVS at the end of the street where you can pick up some groceries and whatever you may need and then restaurants are all in walking distance. There is a bus that you can take right in front of CVS to go to Old San Juan for just 75 cents. Generally any excursions that you were interested in, you could be picked up at the Marriot which was right next door so that is very convenient. Gloria was a pleasure to work with and answered any questions. If I ever get a chance to visit San Juan again, I would certainly without a doubt rent this condo again and would highly recommend this condo to anyone who plans on vacationing in San Juan.

Beautiful Studio on Condado Beach

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I booked this rental I knew I was in for a wonderful vacation. Gloria is a fantastic woman and this is her home away from home. The studio's location is perfect! Right on the beach, oceanfront property. I was one block away from all the action on the main strip. The Marriott Resort was next door and La Concha was three blocks away. We all shared the same beach. I was the lucky one because I had my own beautiful space away from all the tourists and noise that comes from staying at a large resort. At the same time, I did have a great massage at the Marriott. I will never stay at a resort again! I loved having being in this space. The studio was as clean as if I cleaned it myself! Gloria has it stocked with everything you could possibly need to create a beautiful meal. The bed was very comfortable and the towels were nice and fluffy! I may even order her very comfortable chair and a half that I lived in while I watched her TV. Her studio has wifi and I never had an issue with that. She also has a DVD player. I miss it! The staff at Condo Maris is excellent! The Condo is very secure and I always felt very safe. Waking up to the Atlantic Ocean really does something for your soul. Gloria was more than accommodating and always in touch with me. If I needed anything at all, she was a text or phone call away. I love her Studio! I recommended it to a friend, but this space was booked. My friend rented another apartment at Condo Maris and was as happy as I was with the location. You are about 2-1/2 miles away from Old San Juan and that is one of my favorite places on the planet. I've been to Puerto Rico four times. I'll always go back and I'm booking this studio!

4.5 Stars!!! Clean, convenient and great location!

  • 4 of 5

Gloria was so helpful in getting the rates and the information once we booked her beautiful condo. You could not have a better location with amazing ocean views. Close to CVS, Walgreens, Grocery Store, restaurants and bars. The only issue we had was the elevator was out of service for a few days and Gloria gave us a few free parking days for the inconvenience which was very generous of her. We would definitely stay here again and refer anyone looking for a great place in Puerto Rico.

Owner's Response: I'm thrilled that they were pleased with the process and loved the location of our "home away from home." Condado Beach is San Juan's premier tourist zone I was happy to accommodate this lovely couple, who dealt with the situation. All is well with the elevator. Come dip your toes in the surf, just steps from the condo. Come see for yourself...

We miss it already....

  • 5 of 5

Gloria was a pleasure to rent from. Her pictures of this condo do not do it justice. When you open the door and walk in you're taken away by the gorgeous views of Condado beach. The condo has everything you need and more. Every morning I had a delicious cup of Alto Grande coffee from the luxury of the condo balcony. Want to cook? The kitchen is fully stocked. Want to make Pina Coladas, enjoy laughs and gorgeous views on the balcony? This condo is THE place to do it. It is literally right next to the Marriott which offers a nice casino and is open to the public. You don't need a car, everything is within' walking distance and taxi's are everywhere. Puerto Rico is an amazing island and I'm so glad we enjoyed it from Gloria's Condo. The condo is also stocked with beach towels and you are literally an elevator ride and 6 steps away from lush water and soft sand. Can you tell that I miss this place already? You can't beat the price, you can't beat the amenities and you can't beat the views. My husband and I will go back to Puerto Rico and when we do, we'll rent from Gloria. I highly recommend this condo and the island of Puerto Rico.

I love to travel and have never been to PR. I am so glad I came across this AMAZING condo. It was close to everything including a CVS for anything one might need, right next to the beach, amazing views, clean. Gloria was great to work with and the condo had everything in it that you could need as if you lived there! Highly recommend staying here!!
