About Maritza Padilla

Im a flight attendant with United Airlines, I been flighting for over

17 years. I have traveling experience. I'm family oriented with excellent communication skills and speak Spanish & English fluently. I'm a native New Yorker and come from a large Puerto Rican family that appreciates the importance of family vacation time at a reasonable rate . This why I make it affordable and comfortable, giving you all the amenities to make your vacation the best.

Maritza Padilla purchased this condo in 2013

Why Maritza Padilla chose Luquillo

I purchased this property after two long years of searching for the perfect place to spend my weekends with my husband, family, and friends. It's the perfect place to get away from it all. It's peaceful, relaxing and above all else, stress free. In the morning while have my cup of coffee I watch the sunrise. I listen to the ocean waves at night while having a cocktail at sunset. I realized what I was enjoying needed to be shared with you, my future guests.

What makes this condo unique

There are no words to describe the amazing view at my Playa Fortuna Condo at Luquillo Beach...you must see it to experience it. Just a phone call away, I will assist you with airport transportation options and car rental facilities, and recommend excursions, tours, restaurants, bars...anything you might need during your stay. With the beach at your doorstep and me as your host, your vacation is sure to be one of the best ever.

Truly a Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do justice. The view was spectacular, we often fell asleep in the balcony with the ocean's breeze. The condo was very clean with everything we needed and more, including a delicious goody basket. It was my husband and our son's first time vacationing in PR, and not only are they in love, but do not want to stay anywhere other than Maritza's condo. Though the property is gated, the surroundings felt very safe. We felt comfortable walking across the street to the grocery store for bread, butter, eggs, Coke, and Bacardi. It's near the El Yunque rain forest (15min drive at most), where you can hike, zip-line, and do more adventurous activities. Also near to some wonderful food kiosks, more beautiful beaches. The 40-45 min drive to San Juan was a "non-issue" for us...we enjoyed the driving and stopping along the way to shop and eat.

Now...this Condo is not the only Gem, the owner Maritza is beyond words. We took the red-eye to PR. We went to delicious a local coffee shop called Aromas. She knew at the time our flight was arriving, we rented the condo from the day prior to be able to check-in early and sleep a little before going into town. She called my cell very early that morning to see if we were close by. She met us as Aromas and took us to the Condo. She was concern with our lack of sleep and wanted to make sure we rested. However, there was an instant connection between her and our family...as tired as we were we could not stop talking. She knew exactly what we wanted out of this vacation and her suggestions were right on the money.

She called us in the middle of our vacation to see if we needed anything. I must say, I made a slight error with our travel upon leaving the condo...Maritza went above and beyond to help us out. Something she did not have to do and was not expected...she just has a heart of gold.

In the end, we felt like we were leaving a family member behind...one who we are looking forward to seeing again.

As far as the condo is concern...HIGHLY recommended...I wish I could post pictures.

Maritza...I apologize for not posting a review sooner. Once we returned to NYC, we all got lost in the daily NYC rushing lifestyle. We often think of you and your Paradise in Luquillo.

Luquillo area condo

  • 4 of 5

This condo is right ON the beach so you see and hear the surf right from your lovely balcony, where we enjoyed mornings and evenings. It had everything we needed and wanted. There was even a lovely welcome basket full of goodies. It is near many other great beaches and has easy access to shopping and restaurants. It is very secure and in a pleasant neighborhood. We would have loved to have a gas grill to use. It had everything else, though- cooler, beach chairs, boogie board, etc.

Owner's Response: Dear David , Thank you for your review , I'm so glad you and you wife enjoyed your stay at my condo. I'm sorry about not have a gas grill ,but our condo don't permit having gas grill in apartment or on balcony. I only own one unit on complex. I have spoken to all the owner about put one downstairs in the open area. I still haven't gotten a response from the other nine owner, but guest are allowed to purchase a disposable one and use it downstairs in to open area. Overall I'm glad you had a wonderful time in Puerto Rico. Best regards Maritza

The view was stunning!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I loved the convenient location of this condo. The view was stunning and the layout worked out perfectly for our family of four. Maritza was very nice and we enjoyed working with her. Loved that she had beach towels, beach chairs, and a cooler for us to use while we were there too. I was a bit confused at first because the condo is advertised as being on Luquillo Beach, but it is not. It is actually near Fortuna Beach, but it all worked out fine in the end. Luquillo Beach was only a 3 minute drive away and was easy to get to. The only other disappointment I had was that there was no beach in front of the condo. The water washed right up to the wall. I had imagined being able to get up each morning and walk right on to the beach, which wasn't possible when we were there. Maritza said it was because of the time of year, but it would have been nice to know ahead of time that there would be no beach when we were there. The condo itself was very clean and well furnished. It is so conveniently located that even without the beach I think we would stay here again. Thank you Maritza!

Owner's Response: Dear Lori. Thank you so much for your review, it was my pleasure hosting you and your family. The condo in the town of Luqillo and the area of Fortuna . The beaches are all minutes from each other ( Fortuna & luquiio) the beach that you are referring to is called balneario Beach its local a few minutes drive from the condo. I'm sorry the beach in front of the condo was not swimmable this usually happens in winter months as I explained when the east has a cold front the ocean feel it . This winter we had storm after storm which affects the ocean we are still getting hit with snow storm in the East Even though the temperature in Puerto Rico is anywhere between the 80s and 90s in the winter. The beaches are a little rough this happens throughout the area of Loiza , Rio Grande , Luqillo and Farjado. You made your reservation in December I had no ideas this cold front would have last till mid March , we are still getting snow storm in the East up in till last week. As far a knowing a head of time I have no way of predicting the future last year about this time the beach in front of the condo was swimmable luckily there are beaches that are only three minutes away from condo that is very swimmable throughout our winter months . Overall I'm glad you and your family had a great time. And I look forward to hosting you in the near future if you ever plan to vacation in Puerto Rico. God bless you all. Best regards Maritza

Even better than the listing description!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four adults spent a perfect vacation week at "Paradise at Lquillo Beach". The ocean front view was truly breathtaking, the location was convenient to everything we wanted to see and do. The unit itself was very clean, well maintainedd and beautifully decorated - it felt like home.

Maritza is the perfect host, she is warm, friendly, professional and pays attention to detail. She made us feel welcome and relaxed. Our stay here was the highlight of our trip to Puerto Rico. If we are fortunate enough to return to Puerto Rico in the future we will definitely return to "Paradise at Luquillo Beach".

Thank you Maritza for assisting us in having the perfect vacation! We returned to the cold and snow of Vermont reluctantly. Mary G.

Loved this vacation condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I made our first trip to beautiful Puerto Rico at the end of February. We always avoid staying at "generic" resorts but are always a bit curious how the place we book is really going to present once we arrive. Maritza's place was an absolute fantastic choice. Because of snow and ice, our plane arrived a bit late, and we were very tired by the time we arrived but felt very comfortable that first night. The morning, however, offered a stunning ocean view. The condo was spotless and extremely comfortable and Maritza was very much in touch with us for any questions during our week's stay. The location is perfect - Old San Juan, one of the most beautiful places I've every visited, is a short, easy 25 minute drive; El Yunque is about 10 minutes away; Fajardo docks another 10 - 15 minutes away to catch the ferry to Vieques; also, it is extremely close to the famous kioskos. We even did a little shopping at the Outlet Mall less than 12 minutes away (beautiful and modern mall with a post office if no room for souveniers in luggage). Another place that we ate was the Brass Cactus - less than 10 minutes away and highly recommended. Our day was typically getting up each morning and enjoying a nice, relaxed breakfast and coffee in the well-equipped kitchen while sitting on the deck watching the ocean. After that we'd take off to see one of the above-mentioned sights. Inevitably we'd always end up finishing the day with a couple hours on Luquillo Beach's peaceful and beautiful beach (literally a three minute drive from the condo), throw our clothes back on - find a place to eat - then go back to the condo and finish the night with a couple glasses of wine or beer watching the sun set and listening to the ocean. Bed was very comfortable. All in all -- perfect!! Thanks Maritza for staying in touch with us throughout the week - we plan on returning and would definitely love to stay at your place when we do!

A wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

The view is just wonderful. We arrived and the front was open to the ocean. We stayed on the 2nd floor and we never shut the front while we were there. It was great the ocean right out our front. Great place to stay.
