Beautiful, contemporary furnishings make this 19th floor, corner studio a great place to spend your vacation in Puerto Rico.
The apartment has a clean, compact kitchen with all the necessities to prepare anything from sandwiches to gourmet meals.
The living/dining area is extremely spacious with a comfortable large sofa-bed, marble end tables and a marble dining table that will seat four. There is a 32 inch flat screen TV on a moveable cart so you can watch TV from bed or sofa. There is also a speaker system for your IPOD or MP3 player.
There is a queen-size bed that gives you the option of more space for entertaining. The mattress is new and very comfortable. The entire North wall of the apartment is glass...and opens on to a balcony furnished with chairs and chaise lounge.
Vertical blinds allow for privacy at night, filtered light during the day or when fully opened: a spectacular sweeping view of the ocean and city. There is a large closet for storage, and a beautifully tiled bathroom with tub/shower, vanity and window!
The south wall is mirrored which doubles the light and creates a much larger feeling of space in this approximate 500 square foot studio. The 12 X 12 ceramic floor tiles keep the apartment cool, clean and comfy.
The Ashford-Imperial has a security guard in the lobby and access to the foyer is restricted to guests with keys. The rear lobby (pool access) offers vending machines and FREE wireless internet access and also available in the apartment for more convenience. There are several designer boutiques in the building and one lovely café with outdoor seating - great for people watching along Ashford Avenue.
The pool deck is located off the lobby level and is very private and peaceful offering comfortable chaise lounges, picnic tables and umbrellas, outdoor shower and pool side lavatory. There is a coin operated laundry room on the second floor. Additionally, there is a gym/exercise room on the second floor for guests to use free of charge....and it's brand new!
Why stay in an expensive hotel when you can have hotel luxury and the ability to cook/prepare meals when you want to. The Marriott Hotel is across the street and has a gym/health club/spa services/pool/beach/tennis and garage parking...as well as world class restaurants and casino.
Tours of the island as well as rental cars can be arranged in the lobby. There are 24 hour restaurants and drug stores as well as an internet café, International Fitness Center (Gym), Banco Popular, UPS Store, Dry Cleaners and Grocery all with in blocks of the Ashford-Imperial. Historic Old San Juan is a ten minute taxi ride away...or 75 cents by city bus!
We are a young couple with two kids looking for adventure and relaxing lifestile. We like to travel and share our experiences with other people.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2008
Condado is the LOCATION to be in Puerto Rico. It is the local 5th avenue, it has many attractions for all ages and access to the best beaches. Almost everything is Walking Distance.
You can't beat this gem of a condo in the heart of Condado. Perched 19 floors up, the ocean is yours! The wall of glass and comfortable terrace are great. I consider Puerto Rico my home-away-from-home, and this condo is always my first choice. Enjoy it!
First I have to say that Oscar has been great to work with from start to finish, and I can't thank him enough for letting us stay in the beautiful studio! It has an amazing ocean view from the 19th floor balcony, and the building is very clean and secure and in the heart of Condado, which is really the place to be for tourists-access to tons of restaurants and beaches and an easy ride into Old San Juan. Front desk staff was very helpful in calling cabs and helping us arrange tours. There is a gorgeous pool if you get tired of the beach, and a fitness room and coin laundry in the building as well. The other tenants in the building were all very friendly and welcoming too.
The studio itself is very clean and open and bright, plenty of room for our group of 3. It came with lots of towels and 2 beach chairs. Free wifi and a nice small kitchen for when you want to take a break from restaurants. All around very comfortable, and if I can make it back to San Juan I would stay here again, hands down!
From reserving, to receiving the rental agreement, to arriving ...the owner made it very easy. The apt is spectacular, views are amazing - furnishings are very comfortable and every effort was made to insure it was clean and ready for my arrival. If you've never booked a rental apartment on your own - this is definitely the one to book! Great location - right in the heart of Condado. No car necessary! The pool is great - gets sun all day long - no kids!!! and there's a new gym on the second flr next to the immaculately clean laundry room. I can't speak highly enough about my month-long stay.
I spent my yearly vacation in San Juan and wanted to find a place that I could make some meals, have my own space and hopefully have a pool. Well this place was beyond my expectations. The Security Guards were friendly and helpful especially for a single lady that doesn't speak Spanish. The pool was my favorite as not that many people used it and was so refreshing in the morning, afternoon and night as I used it quite a bit. Super close to all types of restaurants, bus line and taxi's are close or a call away to take you anywhere.
Nothing quite like sitting on the balcony watching the sun rise and enjoying breakfast while reading a book.
I highly recommend this place.
My husband and I decided to give Homeaway a try instead of paying the high prices of a resort, and I'm glad we did. Although we never got to meet Oscar personally, he was always available by phone to answer any of our questions. The view as soon as you walk into the studio is breathtaking. An entire wall is nothing but windows and the view is spectacular as shown in the pictures. Oscar's studio was perfect for my husband's and my 25th anniversary getaway. He provides 2 beach chairs, a cooler, and an umbrella which beats having to rent them on a daily basis. The only differences from his pictures of the studio are a different sofa bed and bed. Both were extremely comfortable.
The building itself is well maintained and walking distance to many restaurants, hotels, CVS, Walgreens and the beach. Two places we enjoyed eating at were Orazco's and Café Angel who has a talented singer Sundays and Thursdays. You will find both places if you walk left once you leave Ashford Imperial heading towards La Concha Hotel, about 2 - 3 blocks.
The only downside I can see anyone having is parking if you have a rental. Parking along Ashford Ave is all meter which is a maximum of 2 hour parking. We were lucky to find parking 3 blocks down. On days the meters were not working, we were able to park right in front of the building. Unless you plan to venture outside of Condado, there is no need to rent a car.
For you beach lovers who are planning to rent a car and venture outside of Condado, I recommend visiting the beach of Carolina. It is beautiful and is located right next to Isla Verde. Another beach is Luquillo Beach which has calm waters and tons of Palm trees. And while you're there stop at the KIOSKS to grab a bite to eat. There is a place called Gringos and the food is amazing (they own 2 kiosks: 1 fast foods, the other hot food). The owners are from New York and Tennessee. They also offer a package deal to go kayaking at the fluorescent bay. Wonderful experience.
Thank you Oscar for renting out your place and keeping it well kept. Hasta la proxima.
I am a frequent visitor in San Juan and have stayed at several condos around the Ashford area, and I can honestly say this has been the best so far. I recently stayed here and absolutely enjoyed my time. Bright, clean and with a beautiful ocean view. The building is right in the middle of Ashford. Nearby is Bar Gitano and El Barril (hotspots for dinner and drinks). I felt it was safe and secure; there was convenient access in and out of the building, plus they have 24 hour security. Oscar was friendly and courteous, very easy to get ahold off with any question. On my last day there, my I had missed my flight, and contacted Oscar if I could stay another night. There was an immediate response from him and he was kind enough to drive to the building and personally open the apartment for me when I got back from the airport, after missing my flight. In addition, I forgot an item in the apartment, and he made sure to mail it back to me! I would definitely stay here again without hesitation.
This condo is located right across the street from Marriott Stellaris resort in Condado in the heart of San Juan. It is 2 blocks from beach access, Walgreens and is surrounded by restaurants and shops. Downstairs are a few bars, cafe, and restaurants as well as a salon. Starbucks is a block away, and a new grocery store is opening the next block over.
The condo is on the 19th floor and looks out over the ocean. Beautiful balcony with furniture for taking in the views. Clean, cozy, perfect for 3-4 people. Small kitchen with all supplies and utensils, I highly recommend cooking a meal or two each day as restaurants in the area can be a bit pricey.
The condo concierge/security is on duty 24 hours and building is key entry only. Workout room does not have AC but has treadmill, eliptical, bike, and weights. Pool is great!!! It is big, but whirlpool is only warm and many jets are broken. But it's too hot in San Juan for a hot tub anyway.
Condo is 2 blocks from the bus stop if you choose to take transit to old San Juan or other areas, and taxis are always waiting close to the Marriott.
Oscar provides beach gear including chairs and umbrellas. Great wifi, good cable tv service and DVD player for movies.
Overall, when I come back to San Juan, I will be staying here again.
