Everything you need and more!

  • 5 of 5

Great Place! Exactly what the photos show. Comfy bed and 2 futons, it was the perfect size for our family of 3. Joe met us at the airport with the keys, directions and info. A easy ride out of town to Luquillo. The condo has everything you could need. Here is a list of items we used that Joe has on hand, boogie boards, 2 coolers, tennis equipment, basketball, ping pong items, games to play inside, dvd's to watch at night, not to mention beach blankets and a washer/dryer in unit. Just bring your clothes. There is a Walgreens and a grocery store, "Amigo" a quick 5 minutes drive up the road. For lunches and dinners it is a quick 5 minute drive to the kiosks. We enjoyed kiosk #23 the best. There is also a great Puerto RIcan bakery up the road. Go on route 3 and when you turn for the entrance road to El Yunque rain forest there is a tiny little town right there at the turn. GREAT bakery and REALLY NICE locally crafted souvenir type shops. Back to the condo, the beach right there across the little dead end street is great. Loads of families. The town itself keeps it very clean. Not for snorkling but great for bobbing the waves and boogie boarding. Some days the undertow is stronger than others but all in all the one beach you will need. No need to pay for the beach down the road. Besides the beach, it is a quick drive to the rainforest, we did 2 of the featured hikes. Also on the same road is a great zip-lining company. For first timers and families, it is perfect. Not too huge, starts you off small and gradually work up to taller, longer, and faster. Extremely nice people who help, very friendly. If you go into Old San Juan seek out El Punto cafe, really good food. The town of Old San Juan can be crowded and a bit overrated with the cruise ship tourists but the forts are worth the trip. Parking can be tricky, the smaller the rental car the better, actually that goes for everything. The back roads are quite narrow especially if you plan on a rain forest trip. All in all a great place for a great trip. Our first time to Puerto Rico but it will not be our last!

A place to come back to over and over again!

  • 5 of 5

We were very fortunate to find this condo for our vacation. The location is perfect, the views of the beach and mountains are just amazing. The condo is located near many attractions, it’s on the beach, near the rain forest, golf courses and near highways that allow you to be in San Juan in a short period of time. You are greeted at the Airport with a welcome package, keys and other helpful information. The condo is fully equipped with towels, beach buggy, sports gear, full kitchen, grill, cable, DVD player and washer and dryer. The place is private, and just perfect for afternoon naps listening to the ocean. This is definitely a place to return to, a home away from home! Thank you Joe for your hospitality.

Wonderful Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Condo is up to date and has all amenities,The The View is perfect as it overlooks the beautiful beach and ocean as well as the local area, and then rainforest in the backdrop. The beaches outside the gate are very nice and there is a long stretch of beach to walk in any direction. The Playa Azul 1 building is clean and has excellent security. Joe met me in San Juan and provided the keys and necessary details about the Condo and directions. Note this location is near Golf courses and various good restaurants(One within walking distance on the same side of RT 3). There is also the Kiosks for the local fare- These are right outside of the famous Luquillo beach- just down the road towards San Juan. Another plus is that the Fajardo Marinas are close - You can easily get to the Catamarans and boats from the Condo. I highly recommend this Condo. There is nothing like the sound of the Ocean all night!! There is ample shopping towards Fajardo (Supermarket and a 24 hour walgreens) Another Walgreens is across the street from the Condo. Most important is My Family had a great time and wants to plan for next Year---Overall this is a gem, and if available will rent again!!

Best Trip Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have had the best time of our lives here. Words are not enough to explain the hospitality we have received from the owner, Joe. He came to the airport to greet us and give us the keys. He also gave us a file which included directions to the condo, information about activities around the area and other papers. Not only that, he drove half way from the airport to guide us out of San Juan and put us on a straight route to Luquillo. He was super duper nice and extremely courteous. Our flat was 1904 on the 19th floor with a fantastic view of the sea and the El Yunque rainforest. From the balcony, if you look right, a vast view of sea and on the left is the rainforest. Best of both worlds. Luquillo beach is one of the most beautiful beaches we've ever seen. Joe had kept the condo like a hotel suite and left us noodles, milk, water bottles, pretty much every thing we could need in the pantry to cook and all utensils, beer in the fridge, cereals, and the list goes on. There was 24/7 running hot water in the bathroom. Joe even provided us with beach chairs and snorkels, as well as a push cart to carry them to the beach in. Now I think about it, staying in Luquillo instead of San Juan was the best decision we made. Joe's condo is at such an ideal location; Playa Azul is a beautiful complex with direct access to the beach. It has a swimming pool, multiple basketball courts, volleyball court, tennis court and a fun playground for little kids. We liked the fact that the complex was so secure. We felt very safe there. An ice cream truck pulls up next to the beach multiple times in the day and the best part, the Luquillo kiosks are right on the beach. These are like 50+ little restaurants with brilliant Caribbean/Peruvian food for a reasonable price. I was so impressed with the food. Having been around PR, I think the Luquillo kiosks are the best place to eat in Puerto Rico. El Yunque National Park is 10 minutes away, Walgreens is right opposite the building and Subway is right outside the gate of the complex apart from lots of other eating places. Not only that, Fajardo is a 15 minutes drive away and that was a blessing because it is from Fajardo where you can take a ferry to Culebra or Vieques or kayak to the bioluminiscent bay. Bioluminiscent bay is a MUST do in PR. If you want to buy groceries, go to Econo which is a 10 minute drive away. I would recommend this place to anyone in a heartbeat. Thank you, Joe, for a brilliant vacation! We hope to be back here soon.
