Description from owner

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.

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

If you are on the island for work, why stay in a hotel room When you can have your own apartment. I can work with FEMA and bill weekly as they require.

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.

The condo comes furnished with all linens, towels, kitchen equipment, stereo, CD player, tape deck, flat screen cable TV, VCR/DVD, and FREE Wi-Fi.

The condo is fully Air-Conditioned..

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 wash).

About the area

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 .Taxis and buses are always available as the "main drag" is a half block away. UBER has come to PR and is an excellent, reliable, and inexpensive way to get around the San Juan area. If you decide to rent a car, there is free parking for stays of 2 weeks or longer. For shorter stays there is a low daily rate available for unlimited in/out parking. 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 view, You are ON THE BEACH !

“Puerto Rico Perfection”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2016

Renting this condo from Fred was seamless. He was so easy to work with. He guided us through the process, sending the keys and additional information that we would need for our stay such as maps and places of interest near the building. The condo was perfection and had everything we needed. The view of Condado beach was spectacular and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony with our coffee in the morning watching the beach goers. The building maintenance people were friendly and made sure everything was satisfactory whenever we ran into them in the hall or elevator. We felt that, even though we didn’t need anything, they were there in case we did. The view and location are perfect. Thank you Fred for a perfect Anniversary getaway and for introducing us to San Juan and Puerto Rico!

Owner's reply: Thank you for the great review. I am always happy to see that guests enjoyed their stay in Puerto Rico, and that the condo helped make the vacation even better. I try to make the rental process go smooth, so that guests feel like they are at home, with everything they need easily available. Reviews like yours let me know that I am doing a good job. Fred

“Great beach condo”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2016

Loved the whole experience of reserving condo. The view from balcony was amazing and being steps from beach was awesome!

“Amazing condo on beach”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2016

From the moment I contacted Fred the Owner of this amazing condo, the process was seamless! We sent a portion of payment and Fred was always quick to repond to emails with our many questions.. Having never been to Puerto Rico before, we wanted to experience the local part of the Island as well. He sent us step by step instructions of where to go.. One of our favorites was the deserted beaches that went on for miles. We arrived early and wanted to check in early and he suggested we go to the condo and drop off our luggage and go down to the beach as the cleaning guy was still cleaning from previous guests. The beach is literally steps away. The condominium complex itself is very well kept and maintained and everyone there was so nice and welcoming. Being on the 3rd floor, at night we went to sleep to the sound of the waves and woke up to them as well..From the condo you would never know that you are in the heart of the city. We were in walking distance to Bars, restaurants and CVS and Walgreen's are right there as well.. If you need a cab all you have to do is go to the street a few steps away. We were there for 8 nights and it was very difficult to leave . The people of Puerto Rico are very friendly. When we arrived home I returned the keys via mail to Fred..Within in a week we received our full deposit back from Fred.. Fred has been a property owner in Puerto Rico for 20 years and was pretty much our tour guide from afar.. This was absolutely by far the best vacation experience we have ever had. Thank you Fred!! We will be returning

“Very Safe and Comfortable”

Reviewed 11 Mar 2016

It was everything we needed and more. It is clean, neat, and comfortable. The property, the floor of the building, and the condo all have separate keys to get in so you are very safe. It is right on the beach so you can just walk out anytime and enjoy the ocean. It also comes with everything you need including beach chairs & towels, local maps, restaurant advice, coupons, rental car information, amount of taxi rides, excursions to recommend, etc. Everything you need to ask someone when you get to a new place, he has already written down for you. And a big advantage is that you can take excursions with the Marriott Hotel tours next door at no extra cost! The condo is one block away from the main road that has Walgreens, CVS, restaurants, car rentals, grocery stores and bus stops close by. Fred was very communicative and answered all of our questions every time we called to inquire. He also is there in Puerto Rico several times a year and visited with us personally while we were there to make sure we were content. Now that's service!!! I would highly recommend Fred and his properties to anyone.

“Great stay”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2015

We stayed at this condo because it was next door to the Marriott and we had a bunch of friends staying there for a wedding of a friend of ours. We decided to rent the condo because it was more spacious. The condo was not fancy per se, but it had everything we needed. And it was beach front which was great. The owner was very easy to deal with and was always responsive when I had any questions or concerns. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a beach front, inexpensive condo in a great location.

“paradise visited”

Reviewed 23 Nov 2014

it is just the best view I have ever had. A sign with the work paradise over the door describes it best. Central location but yet quiet. Highly recommend it and will return.

“Fantastic views with a great location.”

Reviewed 16 Nov 2013

This was the first time that I rented a condo via the internet. I read all the reviews that were on Vacation Home Rentals and Trip Advisors. I picked this condo because all the reviews were very consistant and there were no negitive remarks. After staying at this condo I do believe that it was a good value for the money. Everything that was written in the reviews is true. The condo is located on a great beach in San Juan. You can not get any closer to the water than we were and the views were fantastic. We did not need a car because there were many restaurants and casinos in close walking distance. We always felt safe walking around at night. We did book two excursions through the Marriott next door and we enjoyed them. The beach was clean and the breakers were good the week we were there. The condo itself was clean and everything you needed was there from beach and bath towels to all the kitchen goods that you might want. The building itself could stand some work but Fred's condo was in really good shape. Again this is not a luxury condo but neither is the price. I would stay here again if I came back to San Juan. Fred the owner is really on top of everything and the transaction went really smooth. It was a pleasure dealing with him. Everything he listed about the condo is true and there were no surprises. Again the condo was a very good value for the money and location. Bob

“So Homey!”

Reviewed 10 Apr 2013

Fred was awesome! His place has everythingl you need for your stay. He was very helpful when we asked about parking, and whether or not to get a car. You really don't need a car when you stay here because it is in a perfect location, walking distance to restaurants and shops. Taxis are available every morning when you walk outside the condo and you can take a taxi to Old San Juan for $15. Unfortunately, we needed to rent a car because we were in Puertico for a wedding! Had we not gone for a wedding we would have saved us money. If you park on the yellow lines, you can get a ticket... we didn't know that and we parked there for two days and on the second day we got a ticket. Marriott parking is $18 a day. Our ticket was $75! People park on the yellow parking at night and they don't get tickets, they must have needed to meet their quotas that day. Fred provides beach towels, towels for the condo, blankets, everything! There is also a washer & dryer on site and it was very helpful for us. We enjoyed staying here very much, especially hearing the waves crashing at night while you sleep. We can't wait to go to Puertico again! We will definitely be staying here again!

“It is what it says”

Reviewed 3 Mar 2013

The condo, although reflective of the 70s, was what we were lead to believe. The proximity to the ocean without any sounds apart from the soothing, repetitive sounds of th crashing Atlantic waves along with the required level of home comforts makes us already feel nostalgic upon our return to the cold, damp weather of England. We also met the very helpful owner upon our arrival. Nothing about the advert left us feeling disappointed.

“Vacation on Condado beach was wonderful!”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2013

We stayed at 1 Condado Condado Beach, PR . Both the owner, Fred P, and maintenance man, Jorge where friendly and concerned that we were satisfied while we stayed at the condo. The condo was clean and very acceptable for us. My only regret was parking a car in the area . We were surprised that we never needed the air conditioner on since there was always a sea breeze flowing though the condo both day and night, It was a beautiful vacation.
