About the property

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

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

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

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..

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

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.

Eric was such a great host, I had an issue with another reservation that got cancelled by the owner and had to book last minute in this condo. Eric immediately called me and set up everything. He even made sure that when I got to PR, someone was there to show me the condo. The condo was clean and welcoming, I truly loved it and am definitely planning to try to stay there again the next time we visit.

You will not go wrong renting this condo.

I have stayed at this property many times but this was my first time in this unit. This is the perfect condo with the perfect price in the perfect location. Fully equipped kitchen, clean and very confortable.

Lots of eateries in walking distance, fresh food narket down the street but CVS and Walgreens is cheaper.

FYI ....you can travel with food as long as its frozen. I froze steaks, salmon, pork chops etc. Put it in a soft cooler bag and put it inside of my carry on luggage. Although we ate out we also ate in and it was alot cheaper to bring the meat fish and shrimp with me.

I stayed 2 weeks and was able to do alot. Jet skiing, ATV thru the rain forest, zip lining...I havent been to Old San Juan since Maria hit but the island is still amazing even with yhe destruction.

The owner is a great communicator and has put in a lot of work to make sure your stay is great. You will not find a better place. Hotels are overpriced and over rated.

Great stay AWESOME View !

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 6 days during our stay in Condado. We were immediately pleased with the location because it's surrounded by plenty of resturants, bars, and stores like CVS. As we entered our room we immediately noticed our beautiful view. The whole room overall was nice. We had a great time in Condado and our stay here helped.

Nearest Airport
5 Miles
Nearest Ferry
3 Miles
Nearest Beach
Condado Beach
Car: not necessary

Located directly on the beach at #2 Condado Ave, between the Stellaris Marriott Resort and Casino and La Concha Hotel, in the heart of the Condado, the best tourist area in Puerto Rico.

There is a vast selection of restaurants within easy walking distance, from fast food to elegant- you choose based- on your taste and your budget.

Other Activities: There are various tour operator who will take you zip lining, spelunking, rappelling and hiking. El Yunque rain forest is a reasonable drive and can easily be added with a trip to Luquillo beach. Paddle boards, kayaks and kite surfing is available for rent in the area. There are casinos and night clubs near by.

There is a good gym a few blocks away and the health club at the Marriot is another alternative for a work out. I personally like to do the loop down Ashford, over the bridge and back by the lagoon for a walk/run of just under 3 miles to start the day.
