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.
This was our first trip to Puerto Rico and this condo in Stella Marris was perfect for us. We were attending a wedding and the reception was at the Marriott which is right next door. The location was very central to all of the activities we were attending. Just a quick taxi ride (or bus ride) to Old San Juan. The condo is right on the beach. The view is beautiful and it was so relaxing at the end of the busy days, just sitting on the balcony and watching the ocean waves come in. There is every kind of restaurant you could want within walking distance (not to mention great coffee and ice cream when the mood struck). The unit has everything you need for a comfortable stay at the beach. It is very clean, secure and nicely decorated. Eric was so prompt when answering my questions and was right on top of the entire reservation. He even found us a parking space (we rented a car last minute) saving us money. We did the Sea Trek one of our free days (from the Hilton Hotel) and that was great fun. Like walking around in an aquarium. We will definitely return to Puerto Rico (still much of the island to see) and we will definitely stay in 7C again!
My boyfriend and I had such an awesome vacation in PR. The condo was perfect for us. It came with a lot of great amenities. We were happy to have the beach chairs and cooler! NOTHING beats the amazing view. After a long day we would sit on the balcony and watch the sun go down and listen to the waves. Eric was so helpful with everything we needed. The building was quiet too. I always worry about having "party" neighbors. The neighborhood is safe and lots of great restaurants close by. We enjoyed Pannes and Pinky's for breakfast, Kaña and punk Burger for lunch, Concina Abierta, Parcela, and Yerba Buena for dinner. So many endless things to do!! And the best part is we got engaged on our last night there on the beach in front of the condo. It couldn't have been more romantic!! We will definitely be back!!
This is the perfect place to relax and unwind! The unit was true to the photos, beautifully decorated and just the right size for my husband and I. The location of the unit could not be better; beachfront, plus easy access to the airport, Old San Juan, groceries, CVS and Walgreens, and many, many bars and restaurants. This was our third trip to Condado and the first renting 7C from Eric. We will definitely be back!
Everything you could imagine was furnished in the apartment as far as comforts of home. The apartment was clean and as the other reviews stated, the bed was super comfortable. The ocean breeze was such we didn't need the air on at all. Our experience was A+.
My wife and I have traveled to well over 12 countries in the past 10 years. We know, through experience, what makes a 5-star rental. This place has definitely earned all 5 stars. It literally is the closest studio to the water, so nothing blocks your spectacular view from the balcony...you can even sleep with the balcony doors open and listen to the ocean and not have to worry about someone seeing in your room. When you're ready to hit the beach, it is only 2 minutes to get there (amazing). It's conveniently located close to the main road (about 2 minutes walking), where you can find several nice places to eat, CVS, Walgreens and a Starbucks - and as a bonus, the Marriott is just next door with a casino for those who like to gamble. The studio itself couldn't have been nicer. It's completely loaded with basic amenities and lots of extras like sun block, towels, beach towels, paper towels, beach chairs, body boards, soap, shampoo, the list goes on. So if you forget to bring something, check under the bathroom sink or in the closet before going to the store! The room was exceptionally clean when we arrived. Everything worked great (AC, stove, TV, etc). Eric was extremely helpful! He's exactly the kind of person you want running your vacation studio. From the day we booked the studio, Eric was available to answer emails and was quick to respond. Every time we had a question or needed assistance (toilet handle broke), Eric was on the ball to ensure we didn't have to deal with any inconveniences. That is such a rare find these days - thank you, Eric! When we return to San Juan, we will most definitely be staying here again.
There are not words sufficient enough to capture the experience you will have staying here! As others have stated, the views and the sound and feel of the ocean and breeze are breathtaking! The condo is super clean and very nicely remodeled. Eric has thought of everything you could possibly need and more. We definitely took advantage of the chairs and boogie board for the beach. The bed is extra comfortable, and the swivel tv works great for viewing it from any angle. We had to do some work while we were in San Juan, and we honestly didn't mind at all with the incredible views and ocean breeze. This trip was very therapeutic after a busy and stressful year, and this condo is responsible for at least 90% of that. Additionally, it's very convenient to restaurants and spots to grab groceries or take out. We especially liked the Fresh Mart a couple blocks down, where they have all kinds of healthy food, and possibly more gluten-free options than I can find at home (which is saying quite a bit). There's a bus stop right at the corner and a taxi stand right across the street. Eric was always in touch and extremely helpful.
Puerto Rico has a beautiful beaches all along the coastline which offer the opportunity for swimming, snorkeling, surfing, and sunbathing in some gorgeous settings with perfect weather the whole year long. There are several bio-luminescent bays which are a must see activity.
