About Richard Lord
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

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.
