Guestbook comments from the owner
It was wonderful returning to your “Paradise penthouse” in Luquillo. It felt just like going home. We had a wonderful time and have already starting planning a return trip in 2012 or 2013. Thanks for sharing a little bit of paradise with us.

We are Joanne Brochu of Connecticut and Richard Lord from the metropolitan Washington DC area. This condominium was our mother's and father's (US Army Col.) retirement home. We keep their home, now our home, in as fine a condition as would they, and perhaps better as they would not spend the money as we have on expensive amenities such as four TV’s one of which is a large-screen HD LCD Sony.

Richard Lord purchased this condo in 2000

As our mother's and father's (US Army Col.) retirement home, which we were fortunate to inherit, in their memory, we maintain it according to their high standards of excellence.

Our home is one of the finest & most spacious condominiums on one of the best beaches in the Caribbean, & is nearby the El Yunque Rainforest and the fantastic bio bay.

It is one of only a few 3 bedroom 3 bathroom penthouse suites in all Puerto Rico.

The condominium aLso has FREE 10-BIT HIGH-SPEED DIGITAL CABLE INTERNET/E-MAIL access including optional WIRELESS connectivity. It also has FREE LONG-DISTANCE TELEPHONE calling to ANYWHERE IN PUERTO RICO and ANYWHERE IN THE CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES. It also has four televisions including a 46' LCD Sony Full HD 1080P with BlueRay HD DVD player.

AWESOME

  • 5 out of 5
We(grandpa,grandma and 2 grandkids)Just got back and have to say what an awesome place.The view from the balcony is great.What a great stay we had.The tradewinds when the doors where open kept us cool where half the time we didn't have to use the air conditioners.Beds very comfortable and very clean even though it showed wear in places,it is well kept up. Very quite.The place was well stocked with odds and ends in the closets.Anywhere from beach stuff to tools to extra linens,pillows,walkers,coolers,beach towels,just to name a few.Great location as we didn't have far to drive to many attractions.Make sure you sail out on one of the sailing trips,we did the Erin go Braugh,awesome.Make sure you also hit the bio bays and the rain forest.Another great interest is Hacienda Carabali,we took the 4 wheeler trip verses horse back riding,yes we were kids for the day.Also loved the go carts there.Make sure you eat at the Brass Cactus,awesome hamburgers and wraps.Everybody from the security people at the gates to the front desk was helpful and friendly.Richard was easy to work with and the info packet he sent contained info on places to go,places to eat,direction to get there.So many places to shop close buy to if you want to get food to eat in.Wal-greens and Wal-Mart and a grocery store.And eateries close too that you might know,ponderosa(I don't recommend it),McDonalds,taco bell,KFC,Sizzlers Steak house,are some of the locals which are great.All in all it was a great trip, and we thank you Richard for allowing us the use of your beautiful place.To bad we couldn't of stayed longer.Thanks again....

BEAUTIFUL LOCATION, COMFORTABLE AND SPACIOUS HOME

  • 5 out of 5
This spacious penthouse apartment was very comfortable and perfectly located for the active outdoor types in PR. It’s easy to find, and it is very safe and secure. It is also very relaxing and quiet – with the only noise being the coqie frogs at night, the waves lapping the sand and the seabreezes. The place is well stocked and there is an entire storeroom filled with tools as well as any odds and ends that a traveler might need. Standing on the large balcony, one enjoys views of El Yunque Mountain covered in lush rain forest and the beach cove complete with swaying palms. Out the front door is the beautiful Sunrise Beach. If you get up early enough, you’ll see how it got its name with absolutely stunning sunrises. The apartment is showing some age as it was probably built in the early 70s and has had to endure forty years of sea salt, sand and humidity. The three bathrooms have 70’s light blue fixtures, tub showers, etc. but that’s as much gripe as we could come up with. Everything was clean and in comfortable condition. The A/C in each bedroom is a must for comfortable sleeping and each worked very well. There are also fans in the living room and bedrooms. We had six adults in our group and there was plenty of room. We made a lot of meals and really appreciated the kitchen, cooking equipment and dining table for six. If you are interested in hiking El Yunque, kayaking the bio bay, sailing or ferrying to the islands or snorkeling the reefs, this location is absolutely the best on the island. One hint – if you arrive in San Juan and rent a car, be sure to take the toll road (PR66) to the apartment and not the stoplight burdened “highway” PR3. Thanks Richard…our stay was excellent!

EXCELLENT PENTHOUSE & GREAT LOCATION!

Excellent Penthouse & Great Location!
  • 5 out of 5
This was definitely the right place to stay! We were impressed with EVERYTHING! The condo has all the supplies and furnishings anyone could need for a carefree visit to the Carribean beaches! And it REALLY is the PENTHOUSE!!! Amazing views! What a facility!
We ate mostly local fare, with some of the best restaurants located within minutes of Luquillo. There was also plenty of places nearby to buy food & drinks for the condo.
The visit to the rainforest was one of our favorite places to see, (only a short 15 minute drive away!) of course we swam in the waterfalls and climbed over the rocks! BEAUTIFUL!!! The tour of Bacardis Facilities was facinating and delicious!
TOO much to see and do, now we have to go BACK!
The only disappointment was the lack of night life & casinos at this end of Puerto Rico. There is only one left that is a short drive away, otherwise its a 40 minute drive back to San Juan casinos.

WHAT A VIEW!

  • 4 out of 5
This was our first time in Puerto Rico and this apartment was absolutely perfect; a great location and plenty of room for three couples with everything you could ever need in the apartment. The apartment was very nice and the ocean view was worth a million dollars! Richard, the owner, was also great to work with. We are recommending this property to all of our friends, a wonderful place to stay!
