Oceanfront Condo on Beautiful Condado Beach

Update on Hurricane Maria: There was minimal damage to the Condado area and most businesses are open. Fallen trees, and debris, have been removed. The condo, and building Stella Maris, had no damage, and is open for business. The beach is as beautiful as ever. As an alternative to a hotel room, this condo offers an entirely different vacation experience. It will be like having your own private home, directly on a lovely Caribbean beach. Come discover the Puertorican experience!

As an alternative to a simple hotel room, this condo offers an entirely different vacation experience.

It will be like having your own private home, directly on a lovely Caribbean beach.

Imagine your own private balcony that overlooks a turquoise ocean, with a beautiful coral

sand beach directly below you. This is not just a pretty view. You are ON the Beach!

The unobstructed 180 degree view is breathtaking.

The sliding doors in the living room open completely to your private balcony, so the beach becomes part of your living area. The living room and dining area are spacious, and provide lots of room for entertaining, or just relaxing. The living room sofa is a queen sized futon and opens into a queen sized bed, so the condo can accommodate 4 adults.

The kitchen is a separate room Instead of going 'out' to eat for every meal, you can cook 'in' if you prefer, as you have a complete kitchen, with everything you need to prepare gourmet meals.

The bedroom is a separate room as well with a large walk-in closet, and bathroom attached. The bedroom has a large sliding picture window that faces the ocean, so at night, with the window open, you'll feel like you are lying on the beach,

and the sound of the waves will lull you to sleep. The bed is Queen sized with an extra thick mattress.

There is a Pack 'N Play available for younger children.

The condo comes furnished with all linens, towels, kitchen equipment,

stereo, CD player, flat screen cable TV, VCR/DVD,

free Wi-Fi Wireless Cable, Ipod/Iphone plug in,

and many other amenities. The condo is fully AirConditioned.

All you need to bring are your clothing and music.

The Condo is in Condado, on the beach, next to the Marriott and a 10 minute drive/ taxi

ride from San Juan airport (Muniz Marin) or a 10 min Taxi from the cruise ship docks.

If you are not familiar with Condado Beach area, it is perhaps the most popular, and

well maintained, beach in Puerto Rico. The condo ' Stella Maris'

is on the beach, facing the ocean, and 4 floors up (the building has an

elevator). The building is very secure. The property is fully enclosed and gated.

A key is required to enter the compound as well as the lobby. The elevator

also is keyed which will only open to your specific floor. There is a Laundry

room on the ground floor of the building with coin operated washers and

dryers (cost is $2.00 per load).

The Condado area is the main tourist area of San Juan and home to many

casinos, fine restaurants, grocery stores, tourist shops, all within

walking distance, and a 10 minute drive to Old San Juan and close

to the highways that will get you to the rest of Puerto Rico.

Condado is a 'walking area', you don't need a car to get around.

Shopping, restaurants, casinos are nearby.

There is a fitness center, and a Cyber Cafe, about a block away. Taxis

and buses are always available as the 'main drag ' is a half block away.

The Marriott Hotel is right next door and has a great Casino, several excellent

restaurants, with dining on the beach, and live music every night. Most of

the island excursions ( Parasailing, snorkeling, Horseback riding etc.)

can be arranged through them with the operators picking you up from the

Hotel lobby. Although being so close to such a busy area, the condo is

very quiet, except of course for the constant sound of the waves crashing

on the beach below..

This is not just a pretty view. You are ON the Beach!

For more pictures and a virtual tour:

San Juan Airport is a 10 minute drive/taxi ride away.

Very secure property, with private Lobby, and Elevator.

Walking distance to all attractions within San Juan, a 5 minute taxi ride to Old San Juan, and close to the highway to 'El Yunque' rain forest and the rest of Puerto Rico.

Amenities:: All Linens/Towels Provided. NO Cleaning Fees

TV (Cable), VCR/DVD, Wireless Cable, CD player, Tape Deck, Phone, Air Conditioning.

Laundry Facilities on Property.

Fully Equipped Kitchen: Refrigerator , Stove, Microwave, Blenders, Juicers, Coffee Makers, Toaster Oven.

Activities:: Condado Beach is a very beautiful, clean (beach sand is screened nightly), and well maintained beach.

Excellent for Body Surfing, Swimming, Parasailing, or Just Relaxing on the Balcony and Admiring.

Area:: Old San Juan is a 5 minute Taxi ride away. Explore the entire 16th Century Walled City in an afternoon.

'El Yunque' Rainforest is within a 30 min. picturesque drive away.

Explore the underground Caves at Cumuy, or the Stellar Observatory at Areciebo. Ponce, Puerto Rico's second largest city is within 2 hours. The trip over the mountains is worth the drive.

Perfect vacation condo in an awesome location

  • 5 of 5

“Absolutely perfect condo, location and the host has every aspect covered to make for a fantastic vacation in Condado Beach. This condo is completely secure and safe with a view from the third floor balcony that even the best resort in Condado Beach doesn't have. Highly recommend you stay here if it's available!”

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely stay at Fred's condo again. The location and the view were breath taking. Fred was very accommodating to us while planning our trip there. You can walk a few steps from the condo and enjoy the beautiful ocean. View from balcony was unbelievable. Shops and restaurants were in walking distance. No need to rent a car. Took a tour bus to La Mina Falls. Booked our trip to the falls right next door at the Marriott. The trip was a 10!

Just as described.

  • 5 of 5

Fred's condo at Stella Maris is true to its listing. It is directly on the beach, 3 floors up! It was packed with everything I needed during my stay. and throughout the Condado area.

I rented a car and used the Marriott parking lot next door for $19 day. Charlie rental car was right up the street. Walgreens and CVS had just about everything I needed and were a two minute walk away, as was Starbucks. The beach was great (they machine rake it every morning).

Fred was quick to reply to me when needed and was a great host. The condo worked well for me.

Communion with the Sea!

  • 5 of 5

You can not imagine how we enjoyed this condo and our stay in San Juan! We loved every detail of the décor of the apartment, how nice and comfortable it is! And this proximity and communion with the sea, the sound of the waves, the sunrises and sunsets! It has been a total break!

We've already adopted this place, if we go back to PR we'd definitely rent this little paradise again.
