UNBELIEVABLE OCEAN VIEWS, GORGEOUS BEACH AND REMODELED APART NEAR RAIN FOREST

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Luquillo

2 Bedrooms, 1 queen bed and 2 bunkbeds, 1 Bathroom, sleeps 6

Luquillo is a very famous tourist attraction in PR. It has the most incredible blue beaches that are renowned around the world as 'Bandera Azul', or Blue Flag, which is the highest distinction around the world. The famous 'El Yunque National Rain Forest' is 5 min. from the apartment with its incredible waterfalls and hiking trails. Also we have very close in Fajardo the Las Cabezas light house and forest reserve and the famous bio-luminescent lagoon. The Bioluminescent lagoon is a gtreat atraction and a great adventure. It's a beautiful and different experience due to being of a night kayak ride.

The apartment is a corner unit on the 12th floor. Due to many windows it has great cross ventilation providing with lots of ocean breezes. The windows from the kitchen and dinning room area also provide a beautiful ocean view. Even thou the floor is not too high nor too low you will feel from the inside of the apartment as if you are on top of the ocean in a cloud. Come and enjoy our all year round great weather in a place where you will feel like home!.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

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

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.

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.

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!

SPRING BREAK

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I spent the 2nd half of our spring break here in Sheila's beautiful condo. The pictures are true. Excellent view, amenities, and location. Sheila was so easy to deal with and helpful to my lack of technology experience. We just wish we could have spent more time on the beach right in front of the property!

ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR!!!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
We're almost afraid to say anything good about this condo because people might flock to rent it and it won't be available when we want to rent it again!!! We'll just have to take our chances because we loved it so much, we feel compelled to brag it up!! We don't even know where to begin....the ease of finding it online, corresponding with the owner, Sheila, taking care of the contract, the friendly people who worked to keep us safe while at the condo from Angel at the gate to all the security people at the front desk, the many, many friendly residents we met during our stay, the wonderful amenities available to us at the condo from all the beach toys, chairs, and towels to the very modern decor and comfortable bed, the fully equipped kitchen, or the most INCREDIBLE view on the planet!! The 12th floor gives the perfect view of the ocean and provides a wonderful breeze throughout the entire condo. There were so many things that made this vacation one of the best of our lives. The truest testament, however, that Sheila's condo is a smart choice, is to tell you that we spent two full weeks there and we definitely hope to rent it again!

LOVED THIS CONDO!

  • 5 out of 5
This condo was nicely decorated, had all the amenities we needed, and is owned by a very conscientious lady. Sheila was responsive to anything that we needed and had furnished this condo with comfortable and stylish furniture. The closets had everything needed for a fun time...boogie boards, a surf board, beach chairs, coolers, games (both beach games and inside games) beach towels and beach toys. The updated kitchen was clean and appointed with all the cooking utensils needed,; all clean and in working order. There was a very large TV, wi-fi, CD player, CDs, books and a booklet of everything there is to do in this area of Puerto Rico. We have already booked with her for next year and cannot wait to return!

WONDERFUL PLACE TO RELAX AND BE CLOSE TO THE BEACH

The condo was very comfortable and well equipped with everything needed for trips to Playa Azul beach. The balcony has great views of the beach, pool and all the great people that live and vacation here. Shiela was very professional and our booking process was great. We cannot wait to return and stay longer next time!!!!
