Description

Photos and Description of this holiday condo in Condado - 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 San Juan

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.

A Perfect Getaway In San Juan!

  • 5 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.

Beautiful and spacious

  • 5 of 5

This studio condo was perfect for our trip. It is beautiful and the view is amazing. It was the perfect size and had everything we needed. The decor is really nice and the bed was very comfortable. We went to 5 different beaches during our stay and the beach outside this condo was one of the best- soft sand not rocky. Everyone we met in the building was friendly and helpful. A lot of great places to eat within walking distance. Eric was great to work with as we booked the trip at the last minute. I am hoping to come back next year and would love to stay here again.

Amazing view

  • 5 of 5

Eric was the perfect host. He provided everything we needed. We felt completely safe and comfortable for our vacation. The view is to die for. I cried on the day we left because I didn't want to go back to reality of day to day life. I cannot wait to come back.

An unforgettable week

  • 5 of 5

Eric's condo was the perfect place for us to spend our honeymoon! It is a magical place right on the beach and you could sit all day and listen to the waves and feel the refreshing breeze! We can't say enough how perfect this place is for two people. It is beautifully decorated, and most importantly, clean! We wish we could go back right now!

Amazing location and view!

  • 5 of 5

Studio was just as described. The location was ideal, there was a CVS and Walgreens right on the corner and taxis that were available right outside of the condo at all times. The beach was gorgeous and morning coffee on the balcony was delightful. Definitely recommend the condo and hope to visit again soon!

Very, very pleased

  • 5 of 5

If you want to sleep w/the doors open so you can hear the ocean and enjoy the breeze, this is the perfect spot! I chose to stay here instead of at a U.S. hotel nearby where a conference I was attending was being held. The studio was half the price, very clean, and situated near lots of eateries. I highly recommend it.

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.
