The apartment is on the 22nd floor facing the ocean. From its balcony you will have 180 degrees of beautiful views from sunset to sundown. It is located in the heart of Condado which is one of the most ideal locations in San Juan. Our building has 24 hour professional security guards who are always available at our front desk. There is a great pool with lounging areas and hot tub., reading room, a gym, and a beautiful lobby. Laundry facilities are on 2nd floor plus vending machine. There is wifi in lobbies and also inside our apartment. Once you step out the building you are across from the Marriot hotel and Condado beach. The apartment is located on the main strip with plenty of restaurants, famous boutiques, bars and casinos. Condado is a very popular area and has a mix of tourists and friendly locals. There are plenty of grocery stores, Starbucks, 24 hours Walgreens and CVS for any needs within a short walking distance. Almost anything you may need to make your stay comfortable is within walking distance. A car is not necessary here but there are car rentals a few blocks away on Ashford Ave. While we don't include parking, it is available across the street at the Marriot hotel for a reasonable fee. Old San Juan is a very short 10 minute bus ride and can be seen in the distance from the balcony of our apartment. The Marriott hotel across the street offers trips for snorkeling, Kayaking on Bio luminescent bay, rain forest trips and other great adventures for a reasonable fee. These trips leave from the hotel. If you are the type that just wants to relax, eat great food and stay local pretty much everything you need is right at your fingertips. Condado is truly a special place!

About Lyulma Swanson

Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. bilingual (English and Spanish). It is always a pleasure to have guests from different cultures stay at our place and enjoy Puerto Rico and its beauty.

Lyulma Swanson purchased this condo in 1998

Why Lyulma Swanson chose San Juan Area

Location! Condado has always been a special place. I have known this area my whole life and although it developed quite a lot through the years it remains one of the best places to live and enjoy.

What makes this condo unique

It is a comfortable studio apartment in a great building and location. It's high up on the 22nd floor with a beautiful view of the ocean and city. The residents are friendly, polite people who are always willing to help. The guards are very serviceable. You are always with good company around. The Atlantic breeze moves through the room. At night you can see the stars and occasional cruise ships gliding slowly across the ocean. In the early morning you can see an amazing sunrise. Being able to walk across the street to the beach or walk to great restaurants whenever you want is all part of the experience and convenience.

Completely Removed The Stress of Travel

  • 5 of 5

I could not have asked for a better view and a lovelier apartment. Nothing fancy but it was very clean and felt much more like a home base than a resort. The apartment is well equipped with all of the functional needs and equipment for people of all ages and the proximity to shops, banks, beach, and local points of interest can't be beat. I look forward to staying here again!! Lyulma made the entire process easy and effortless. An excellent host :)

Great location and view

  • 4 of 5

We spent 5 days at this condo. The view to the ocean was incredible. We were able to position chairs (the couch actually is in several parts so you can either make it very long or put two chairs directly in front of the sliding glass doors to take advantage of the view). The couch is much more comfortable than the photos would indicate. There is now a flat screen TV against the wall (not TV as pictured). The decor of the studio is very pretty. If you are a budget traveller like me, you will discover the bus to old San Juan (T21) is less than a block away (runs every hour to the main bus station). You can also take the bus to the airport (D53). Word of warning: buses run on Puerto Rico time. They take EXACT change only $.75. You are a block from the beach, 7 blocks from the mercado in Santurce, and the movie theatre on avenida ponce de Leon, is only about two blocks from there. I would return to this condo again.

We stayed at this property the last week of July 2015. The same day we were going to arrive we couldn't reach the contact person with the keys but we were able to reach Mrs. Lyulma and she was very helpful and the issue was solved in a timely manner. The apartment has an amazing ocean view close everything and you can walk anywhere in Condado. Best option for your money. I would recommend it to anyone! I would love to stay here again!

Can't beat the view

  • 5 of 5

For the price you pay, this condo offers the best view and location you can get in Condado. It is located at the best location in Condado. The host Lyulma is very accommodating. As there was no guess before and after our stay, she let us check in very early and check out late. The communication from her was always fast and effective. The AC was not working when we checked in due to power outage a few days prior. As soon as we connected her, she had the caretaker come over right away and fixed it. The strong AC is really a big plus in the hot days. The security staff was always very helpful, almost like staying in a hotel, but for half of the price you would pay comparing to hotels. The furnitures were a bit out dated, but very clean. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the kitchenwares you need. The hot water pressure was not very strong, but enough to take a hot shower. It was very nice to step out of the big balcony and enjoy the best view you can get in San Juan. We would definitely stay at this condo again, if we get the chance to visit again.

A Memorable Experience

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent two weeks in San Juan, Puerto Rico in June. For our first week we had booked hotel accommodation, and for the second week we booked Lyulma’s studio apartment on Ashford Avenue. This was our first time staying in private accommodation, and the difference is remarkable. In a couple of days we felt almost like going home after a long day out.

The studio apartment is a good size with plenty of room in the living and sleeping area for two people. The bed is comfortable. We ran into a couple of issues the first day we arrived, but they were resolved promptly and expertly by the caretaker of this apartment. The kitchen is very small, but this was not a hindrance to us, as we did not intend to do any serious cooking. It was sufficient for making breakfast and the occasional quick supper. At Lyulma’s advice, we shopped at SuperMax supermarket which is within walking distance, and enjoyed their complimentary ride home with our purchases. It is a great place to shop with great variety of food and household items and excellent ready-made food service as well to eat-in or take out. The Ashford Imperial building is safe with a security desk in the lobby, staffed by friendly, helpful people. The building is on the main tourist street, and it was nice to watch the busy street below and the ocean a block away from our balcony.

Our email correspondence with Lyulma, the owner, was very pleasant. She is a good communicator, she answered all our inquiries promptly. We came away with a positive experience and opinion.

Great Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

If your looking to visit San Juan I recommend staying here at this condo it the heart of everything. I visited San Juan for my 30th Birthday and wanted to stay somewhere with a nice view and I tell you this view was more than I expected from the 22nd floor. The condo was very cozy and clean and has pretty much everything you need Including very cold AC and wifi which was pretty fast. The building was clean and security were nice. The owner Lyulma was very nice and responsive to my calls and emails. She even let me check out late because I had a 5 o'clock flight and she had no problem with it. Yolanda the care taker was very nice and helpful and told me where everything was the first day I got there so that was very helpful. Great restaurants and bars in walking distance. Easy to catch a cab across the street at the Marriott which is also a nice place to hang out. They have Live music, Casino and great drinks. Everyone pretty much speaks English so no worries. Only bad thing I have to say is a couple times there was no hot water so had to take a cold shower. Wasn't too bad being that it is very humid out in Puerto Rico but other than that I really enjoyed it and I will be booking again in a few weeks. Thank you Lyulma :-)

Condado is a vibrant community. The beach is across the street from our apartment. For a day adventure and site seeing, jump on the bus and 15 minutes later you are in Old San Juan which is historical and beautiful.. The food is also wonderful. In Condado there are parks, stores, museums and places to walk to within the area. If you are the gambling type, we have 3 casinos all within a short walk. One of the casinos is located inside one of the most lush hotels on the island; The LaConcha. It must be seen to be truly appreciated. The Marriott, located across the street has a lot to offer. They have adventure trips that anyone can sign up for. I recommend this to people who don't want to drive on the island as it's far more convenient. The Marriot also has a huge lounge area and occasionally has live music. Their Casino is very popular.
