A Perfect Getaway In San Juan!
A Perfect Getaway In San Juan!
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.

Owner response: John and Mary Thanks for your kind words and for staying with me on your vacation in PR. You were great guests and I look forward to your prompt return. Eric
From start to finish, Eric was amazing. I received quick responses to questions, along with receiving flyers and magazines with the keys to the condo to help us plan for our trip! Eric went above and beyond what was expected. The view was amazing. The condo was clean and ready for us when we arrived. The bed was very comfortable and the sounds of the surf amazing every night. Loved having the beach chairs available to us in the closet next to the condo. The available free WiFi in the condo was very handy! Everything is within walking distance...coffee at Starbucks to groceries at Walgreens to restaurants of any liking. Buses ($.75)to take you to Old San Juan, malls or wherever you'd like to go. Taxi's available everywhere, also. The kitchen really had everything...it was nice to be able to have breakfast and lunch at the condo and eat out for dinner. It allowed us the opportunity to extend our trip from a few days to a full week! I cannot say enough about the condo, area or Eric Brahm! We will be back and will let everyone know about this condo!!!

Owner response: Thank you for taking the time and making the effort to write such a nice review. It was a pleasure meeting you both. I am happy that you enjoyed your stay and I look forward to being able to accommodate you on your next visit to San Juan.
From the moment we arrived we were kindly greeted by the owner who helped us get settled in as well as recommended Cafe de Angeles nearby for some good authentic Puerto Rican food. We felt very comfortable and welcome. I cannot stress to you the view and location of this condo is unbelievable! The condo has all of the amenities you would have at home from beach chairs to wireless internet. The view is unreal! There were many mornings we could barely pull ourselves out of bed because the sound of the waves was so lulling. The condo is located in a great spot with tons of restaurant options as well as located right next door to the Marriott which has a casino, coffee bar, live music and you can sign up for excursions to move around the island and visit places like El Yunque or do boat excursions to private islands for incredible snorkeling. You can also set up excursions direct with the companies and ask them to pick you up at the Marriott without having to be a guest at the hotel. We did 3 excursions and only 1 was booked through the Marriott. The friendly people on the island make it very easier for you to get around and appreciate the business so they go out of their way to make it an easy and enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend East Wind Excursions for some water adventures ... we had so much fun with the biobay experience on the island of Vieques that we splurged and booked a second trip to a the private island of Icacos for snorkeling and swimming on the pristine, fantasy-like beach. You can also take a bus to Old San Juan (bus stop located 1/2 block from condo so very convenient) for 75 cents (ride time about 15-20mins) and you can find some amazing restaurants in Old San Juan as well as its great people watching with so many ships coming in and out with passengers from around the world exploring the town. To sum it up I would say if you are reading these reviews then you must be considering taking a trip here and I would say do it! You won't regret it and this was a really great find in a good location. I look forward to the day I can book my next trip back and can't wait to have the waves put me to sleep every night! Cheers, Sarah from Colorado

Owner response: I really appreciate the time you took to write such a nice review. I am glad you enjoyed both the condo and the island as much as you did. I am happy to hear that you found it easy to arrange excursions both through local tour companies and on your own. Come back soon and often.
Spoiled us for all other rentals!

Excellent rental in every way: oceanside location in heart of Condado, owner-management, cleanliness, amenities including secured parking. You can actually FEEL the ocean right there, it's amazing to fall asleep/wake-up to the waves and cooling breeze. This is by far the most well-equipped and CLEAN rental we've ever stayed in; we almost always have to do some cleaning when we first get to a rental, but not here. And there wasn't a thing we needed that wasn't somewhere in the well-stocked cupboards/drawers, it saved $ on all those little things you usually need to buy at Walgreens. It was easy to get to Old San Juan & our favorite restaurant El Jibarito for home-style, authentic, & very reasonable-priced meals. Also in Old San Juan we frequented Mate` take-out on San Sebastian off Plaza Colon for delicious baked emapandas, a healthy snack & welcome break from the deep-fried goodies. The rental we went to from here was quite an adjustment after this great experience. Highly recommended and we will return!

Great condo at a great location. Eric was very nice and helpful. We really enjoyed the proximity to the beach, local restaurants & hotels, and the wallgreens a block away. Parking is also available and great if you have a rental car ( must have if you want to see other parts of the island ). We felt very safe with the gated entrance and floors. If you're adventurous you'll definitely want to do the aventura caving adventure tour in the Rio Camuy river system. This was the best part of our trip (besides waking up to the ocean every morning!).

Lovely and Wonderful!
Lovely and Wonderful!
An amazing location with everything you need to have a comfortable stay! Near the rental I took advantage of some amazing restaurants (Pinkys for breakfast), coffee shops, car rentals companies (Chalies's Car Rental and Avis nearby, the Supermax grocery store for kitchen staples, and utilized Walgreens for any needs such as laundry detergent, wine, bottled water, etc. I’ve never slept so close to the beach in my life. It was an amazing experience. Sleeping to the sounds of the waves was so nice. I didn’t even need the AC as the overhead fan and the breeze from the ocean made the room cool enough to sleep comfortably. My understanding is that the weather Is fairly consistent all year around and it was nice to sleep with the sliding doors open. (just close them when you leave in case a storm occurs) The beach was amazing play in! If you want something with less waves there’s a small beach area 3-4 blocks away with no waves. It’s a nice option. There are boards in the rental house you can play with! Definitely do this! Old San Juan has some of the best restaurants to eat at in my opinion and lucky enough I was able to walk there daily!! I walked to Old SJ and back every single day I stayed in PR for the most part. You can also catch the bus which is half a block from the property. I felt safe in the rental as there are several measures for security and I even walked around at night with no issues at all. There are many police in the area and you do feel very safe. The kitchen was an amazing option to have in case you wanted to make a breakfast or dinner in. I did this many times. If you're going to stay for a week or so you can easily go through a box of eggs, pancake mix, pasta, and maybe some wine and assorted fruits. There’s a blender there that you can make a nice shake in. Actually there isn’t a kitchen appliance, dish, or cookware that you cannot find there. Very convenient. The laundry room was easy to use as I ran out of clothes midway through the trip. Towels, bedding, floors, kitchen area, fridge, and bathroom were all very clean as well. Eric B. is the owner of this amazing beach front rental and he has always been extremely responsive through and through. If I had questions about parking, what to see in PR, or even how to get somewhere he was wonderful. He went above and beyond in every way. I actually got to meet him and his very nice cleaning person a couple of times during my vacation. I will stay here again!!

Great View AND Price!
Great View AND Price!
We just returned from a really nice week in sunny, warm San Juan. This was our third year to vacation here, and stay in the Condado area. We have stayed in hotels in the past, (nice but very expensive) and fortunately found this studio. From the very beginning, Eric, was very easy to work with. It is obvious he wants his renters to have a good experience. The view is spectacular!! It's great to be able to lie in bed and watch and hear the ocean. The studio is very conveniently located to restaurants, parks, walking areas, shopping, Walgreens, and the Marriott where excursions can be booked. We hope to return again next year. Thanks Eric!

A Perfect Vacation
A Perfect Vacation
Upon opening the door to look at the most perfect view of the Atlantic ocean set the tone for the rest of the stay. The property was secure, clean and very comfortable. Quiet evenings lead way to restful sleep to begin each sunny morning. The amenities were great, we even had use of boogey boards which gave us some funny stories to tell later. The proximity to the beach could not get any better, your literally 15 steps outside the sand. The area has lots of restaurants and the property had tons of suggestions for things to do on the island which helped since we had a car during our stay. I recommend this property to anyone visiting the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. My only disappointment was that in Ponce they have renovations going on so the Serralles Mansion and other attractions are open Thursday - Sunday so we missed out on that. So plan ahead for that visit!

About the owner: 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 the Owner Chose Condado:
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 wall of glass doors 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.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
