About Sheila Gonzalez

I'm a realt estate agent in Gurabo, Puerto Rico. An hour away from Luquillo. When I was very young my grandfather had a house in Luquillo in front of the Ocean and our family, uncles and cousins would spend most summers at this house in the beach. We always had such great time that I always said that when I could would love to buy a place there. It was the most frequented beach in the Island for Summer time. We used to meet school friends there even thou I lived in the metropolitan area. Everyone wanted to spend summer there and many camped in nearby camping areas. It was the cool place to be. Time has changed and now is a very tranquil beach. This makes it much better because you can enjoy nature in peace at it's best.

One day I was called to sell an apartment owned by my uncle in Luquillo. When I arrived just was amazed at the views of the ocean and just fall completely in love. I had to have it! It was needing some love so I decided to spend lots of money and did it as new. I am planning on enjoying it more in my retirement Unfortunately for the time being work doesn't allow me to enjoy it so I hope you do. This is the apartment that I'm offering with much pride.

Sheila Gonzalez purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Sheila Gonzalez chose Luquillo

This property has been prepared with lots of love and planning for your best experience in the Island. My greatest joy is for you to love Puerto Rico and Puertorricans and want to come back.

What makes this apartment unique

Completely remodeled! Great building with good security 24/7.

You will completely fall in love with the views and won't want to leave. From the kitchen, dinning and living area you really feel like in a cloud over the ocean. Great feeling!!!!

Excellent apartment in a great location

  • 5 out of 5
Our family (a couple with 2 kids) spent a week at this apartment during Thanksgiving 2009. The location is great if you want to use it as a base to explore different parts of Puerto Rico, specially the Northeast side, It is very close to El Yunque and Fajardo and not too far from San Juan. We also had a chance to visit Arecibo and Ponce.

The apartment had everything we could possibly need and the owner, Sheila, was very helpful welcoming us at the apartment and giving us hints. She even managed to get us a great babysitter one night so that my wife and I could go salsa dancing.

There is a great beach right in front of the apartment and it has a large pool. A car is definitely needed.

We highly recommend this apartment.

Amazing View!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I had an amazing week at Sheila's condo! The pictures do not do the condo any justice. From the moment we arrived and felt the warm breeze from the ocean and heard the waves crashing against the beach, we knew we picked the right place. The condo had everything that you could need: washer and dryer, all kitchen utensils, boogie boards, coolers, beach chairs, beach towels. Luquillo was the perfect location for us to do everything we planned. It was close to the biobay, rainforest and of course the beach. There are many restaurants nearby and there is a grocery store and walgreens across the street. There are stray cats that are in the complex but they don't bother anyone. The guards were friendly and the area surrounding the complex was quiet. Sheila was very helpful and refunded the deposit promptly. I can't wait to plan another trip to Sheila's condo!

Beautiful view

  • 4 out of 5
Over all the apartment was great! The apartment is nice but the view makes the place. The air conditioner in the kids room worked great, the other one was ok. There is no AC in the living room, but it was not to bad. It was really nice that the apartment was fully equipped, basketball, boogie board, surfboard, beach towels, washer dryer and kitchen ware, where great. The refrigerator needs to be looked at because it leeks on anything you put on the top shelf. Everyone on the grounds were really nice. The place was easy to find and close to all the excursion were close, which was great. Thanks for the use of the unit, overall it was great, I will definitely return, Sheila was very easy to rent from, she was great.

Great Experience

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful experience here in Playa Azul Condominiums and the communication with Sheila was always pleasant and she always called right back when needed. Our family consisted of two adults and three children and my kids had a blast at the beach and pool everyday there were beach chairs and towels, coolers, snorkeling gear. There were pots and pans with utensils also the grocery store Amigo right across the street where we did groceries they are opened til 10p.m made it so easy to cook for the family. The condo provides shopping carts to bring your baggage and groceries up to upper floors very convenient. There was a washer and dryer where we were able to wash beach clothing and towels all you have to do is buy the food and detergent and your ready to go literally. We slept wonderful with the waves at night beautiful view also very peaceful up on the 12th floor thanks Sheila for a great experience. Book the rental and enjoy hope I helped others decide wether this would be a great choice San Juan was literally 30 minute drive when we went to the airport.

Condo was home away from home!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband, fourteen year old son and myself typically stay in two bedroom, fully equipped timeshare rentals and have grown quite spoiled by the amenities offered by the timeshare resorts. For our Puerto Rico trip, I could not use the timeshare swap and sought out other similar options and that is how I found Sheila's condo. It was two bedroom, allowing us all the privacy we needed, and had all the amenities we needed - kitchen, cable tv, wifi, not to mention that the closet was full of things you may have needed - like hair dryer, coolers, beach towels. The pictures posted are accurate, the condo is beautifully maintained and the view to the back is the beach and the front is the rainforest, quite a sight to see!!! The condo is very comfortable, we enjoyed cooking some meals, and relaxing on the couch at night watching some shows after the day's adventures in beautiful Puerto Rico. We never had any issues with noise at night; I know there were sometimes folks outside but I never heard them once we turned in. The 12th floor was very quiet, I only saw some other folks on the floor once or twice during our stay.

The condo is easy to find and close to the highway and rainforest. The security guards are very friendly and make the condo feel very safe. Nearby, there are some small restaurants and a grocery store. We found this condo to be the perfect place for us and it was so nice to come back to after each day's adventure.

Sheila has a large binder of suggestions in the condo showing things to do, places to eat and other Puerto Rico facts. She also let us know during our stay about a local night event occurring while we were there. Unfortunately, we had an early day the next day and couldn't participate. My family hiked the rainforest to La Mina falls (be sure to take lot of water with you), Zip lined at Toro Verde, saw the Rio Camuy cave, kayaked in the bioluminescent lagoon, and rode Segways through Old San Juan. Puerto Rico has a lot to offer - don't miss out!!!

Thank you Sheila for your hospitality. I felt like I was at home in your home making my vacation very restful!
