The pictures may be hard to believe - but they are spot on (including the view)! What a wonderful stay and host. The beach truly is steps away and we could not believe how conveniently located the apartment is. We have stayed in numerous properties; both from (website hidden) and AirBNB. THis was one of our best experiences - the first ever host to pick us up at the airport! Eduardo gave us a quick tour of the neighborhood, pointed out places to eat and was a wealth of information. Everything we needed was there - beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. Eduardo was so responsive to any questions I had prior to arriving - this was a 5 star experience and I HIGHLY recommend it.
We had such a great time at Eduardo's apartment. First of all as many others have mentioned, the view is just as good as the pictures if not better. And, the beach is RIGHT OUTSIDE YOUR BACK DOOR. Coming from Chicago this was huge. The beach was really clean and never got extremely busy even on weekends, so no worries about going down early to grab your spot. And even if it did get busy, you could just look out your front window to see how many people are there and run down!
The apartment has simple and tasteful furnishings and was clean upon our arrival. Eduardo was traveling for work so his sister, Margarita, picked us up from the airport which was so nice. She gave us some information on things to do and got us familiar with the neighborhood. There is a grocery store (SuperMax) a 10 minute walk as well as a "to go" store that has the basics (snacks, alcohol, sunscreen) just 5 minutes southwest. Getting in and out of the apt once you learn which key to use was very easy. I felt safe in the building and neighborhood. The other tenants in the building were quiet and friendly.
If you walk about 15-20 mins west on Ashford there is a strip of restaurants. We went to Oceano ($$$ but good for apps/happy hour, patio on the beach) and Orozco's (Puerto Rican food, inexpensive, good drink specials). Took the bus (21 or 53) to Old San Juan and you have to go eat at El Jibarito if you want Puerto Rican food. So good and very friendly. There are also a few spots less than 10 minute walk for food/drink by Eduardo we went to (Bar Bero and the wine bar right by it.) There was a cute breakfast/juice bar place right at Calle Taft/Calle Loiza but I can't remember the name right now. If you go about 15 minutes east on Calle Loiza you'll eventually get to Ocean Park, another cute neighborhood and a good beach with a lot of young people.
Eduardo was helpful throughout the entire reservation process. I highly recommend staying here for your trip to San Juan. Additionally, the price of this room is about half the cost of the resorts in Condado and there is no way you could get that view. We are already planning another trip for next winter!
The pictures don't lie - the condo and the views are amazing. You will not find a more beautiful place to spend time in Puerto Rico! And if you love soft, sleeping-in-a-cloud beds, aaaah! You will be in heaven.
Eduardo is a wonderful and generous host, picking us up at the cruise terminal after our cruise, and then walked us through the condo, the keys, etc.
If you choose this place for your home away from home, you will not be disappointed.
Zentraler geht kaum. Ein Apartment im 11. OG eines Hauses mit 13 Etagen. Auf jeder Etage gibts zwei Apartments. Groß genug um mit mehreren Personen zu reisen, denn es gibt drei Schlafzimmer.
Das Apartment liegt direkt am Starnd mit einer sehr schönen Sicht über das Meer und das Treiben am Strand. In Concado gelegen ist alle fußläufig schnell erreichbar und es gibt einen riesigen Supermarkt in der Nähe. Einen Tipp: Es ist fast unmöglich irgendwo Briefmarken zu finden. Die bekommt man in genau dem o.g. Supermax Supermarkt. Direkt am Eingang links an der Lotterieannahmestelle.
Der Gastgeber Eduardo ist sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und gibt einem jede Menge nützliche Tipps.
Das Apartment selber ist mit allem ausgestattet was man benötigt. Vor allen Dingen Verbrauchsmaterialien wie Toilettenpapier, Kaffeefilter, Salz, Pfeffer usw. sind da. Echt klasse! Die Einrichtung hat mir nicht so gut gefallen, doch das ist eben Geschmacksache und von daher nicht bewertbar. Für die Preisverhältnisse der normalen Hotelzimmer in Puerto Rico ist dieses Apartment auf jeden Fall eine bessere Alternative. Denn die sind teuer und klein und dagegen ist das Apartmenrt absoluter (website hidden) gibt übrigens auch einen geschützten privaten Parkplatz für das Apartment.
The 4 of us visited Puerto Rico and stayed at the Costa Azul condo just steps to the beach! Eduardo was our host who picked us up from the airport as planned. He was very friendly and welcoming when we arrived. He drove us around the neighborhood and pointed out helpful details to get us oriented such as where the local restaurants, supermarket, and the nearest coffee house were. He then showed us the condo. It was very clean and comfortable with a contemporary style. The views of the ocean and beachfront were magnificent from the 11th floor!! The sunsets and the full moon were unforgettable! The condo had all the amenities that we needed. Our location was within a short 10 minute walk to 4 star restaurants and entertainment. The neighborhood felt safe and the people were very friendly. Eduardo made certain we were comfortable and made himself available if we needed any assistance. All of us highly recommend staying here especially if you are looking to spend a lot of time relaxing and taking in the beach. As a bonus, a few locals offered delicious empanadas and cold beers which were served right at your side! Fantastico!!!
Where to start... Our flight was delayed by 12 hours because of the huge snowstorm in the midwest US. We arrived at 12:30 AM and Eduardo met us at the airport -- really above and beyond. Not only that but he then led us to his condo so we wouldn't have any problems finding it at such a late hour (it turned out to be VERY centrally located). But the best part of our intro to Eduardo was that he brought us breakfast for the next morning because he knew we would not have a chance to get out early. What a terrific host.
We used Eduardo's Condo as a base to visit El Yunque, the "Pork Highway" in Guavate, the fabulous beaches near Fajardo, and of course Condado and Old San Juan. What a location!
The best part was coming back to Eduardo's condo every day. The best beach in San Juan for playing in the surf, boogie boarding and laying on a beach towel. Very few beach vendors and they were NOT pushy. This is a "locals" beach but it was full of professionals who were there with their families. We met some great people and everyone was friendly.
What was best about this location:
1. VERY SAFE neighborhood.
2. Centrally located -- huge grocery store about 4 blocks away.
3. Best beach in Condado.
4. SAFE Parking for our rental car.
5. We're still talking about the view from the Condo..
6. Nice stacking washer/dryer. We loved this feature.
7. Air Conditioning.
8. Great Value for a large group of people.
9. Kitchen is well equipped for cooking.
How could Eduardo improve this place?
1. The elevators are a bit slow. I don't think he can fix that.
2. The drink blender had a hard time with big ice chunks.
3. The lock on the back door took some "McGuyvering".
4. Needs a doormat to wipe the sand off your feet before coming in from the beach.
5. Refrigerator is "tired".
We also stayed at the Hilton Caribe for a week. It's a nice place but the beach was not as nice. And, it cost us a lot more money!
Our family said that this was one of the best places we've ever stayed for "fun and sun". Glad we were able to use Eduardo's condo.
Eduardo and his sister Magrita are great hosts. They are both very helpful, and have awesome suggestions of place to see while you stay in Puerto Rico. They are both very generous, warm and hospitable people. Eduardo and his sister made our stay most enjoyable and comfortable. I encourage everyone to rent this place. Both of them address any issues and problems in a timely manner. My family and I absolutely loved the place.
This was our best airbnb experience to date. I can't do it justice in a review - you have to see this condo for yourself! The view from the living room is absolutely stunning! With the windows open, you can hear the waves crash and feel the ocean breeze. You could not experience San Juan any better from a five star hotel. Eduardo was a perfect host - friendly, helpful and informative. His attention to detail is apparent throughout the tastefully decorated flat. Stacked with extra towels, garbage bags, paper towels, dish soap, laundry soap, ect... all the necessities were stored in abundance so that we wouldn't run low. There were game boards in a closet (including two versions of Monopoly) and Boogie boards for the beach. Location was perfect. We had such a fantastic time. Our only regret was not booking a longer stay! When we plan our return trip it will be for much longer - can't wait!!
Absolutely gorgeous place. Eduardo was an outstanding host. He picked us up from the airport, took us to our rental car, and brought us back to his place. Beautiful location overlooking the beach. Would definitely stay there again!
We stayed at Eduardo Condo for 1 week and even if i had didnt have rhe chance to meet him ..we had a wonderfull welcome from his Sister and the appartment was great for us:)
I highly encourage you to stay in his place if u look for a great location next to the Beach at Condado!! This area is also walking distance from entertaining Bars, clubs, restaurants and convenience store if u need anything.
We were 5 people and enjoyed this place a lot.
Thanks again for a great week and the Wakeboards:)
