Owner's place is incredibly amazing; from its location, accommodation and his hospitality. The place is surrounded by two gorgeous beaches, has tons of nearby restaurants, places to enjoy great nightlife, you can enjoy easy access to different hotels pools and bar areas that are close to the condo, easy access to public transportation, is a very short drive to places like Old San Juan, Condado and the Airport.

Magical stay in Puerto Rico!

  • of 5

My husband and spent our honeymoon in this wonderful place. It's a very nice design - comfortable and chic. The views are to die for; and I loved that the whole wall opened up! The location is awesome; right on the water and easy to catch a cab from. Please take note though: it's easier to tell your cab driver near Hotel La Playa than the actual address - everyone knows where the hotels are.

I wish we could have stayed for longer, a week wasn't enough. We're already planning our return.

Carmen and Hector were wonderful, responsive and helpful. They take great pride in their place and it shows. This is by far the nicest place we've ever stayed.

I highly recommend staying here, you won't be sorry!

beautiful studio apt with front view

  • 5 of 5

Me and a buddy of mine stayed at these apartments for the weekend. Everything from the pics looked exactly the same. The place was beautifully designed and the view was amazing. I didn't get to meet Carmen but everytime we spoke she was very helpful during our stay. Hector was outstanding. He came in the middle of the night to let me in when I left my keys in the room and could not access the building. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay at their apartment.

Location Can't Be Beat

  • of 5

The condo really is the perfect space for two people. The furnishings make it seem like a luxury hotel and it sits directly on the beach. Each morning we would head down to the sand with the comfortable Tommy Bahama chairs provided and plush beach towels. It was marvelous to sleep with the windows open listening to the waves and to sit on the balcony admiring the scenery. The airport is very close so you can see and hear planes but the noise never bothered us. We found it entertaining to watch the large jets take off.

The location is also central to numerous shops and restaurants. There is a Walgreens just a few blocks away that we frequented often. We rented a car from Enterprise in the Ritz Carlton for a day, which was within walking distance and very convenient. We felt very safe strolling down the beach or Avenida Isla Verde to find places to eat. The building itself is very safe too. There are locks on literally every door (including the elevator). The property manager installed a lock box for the keys during our stay, which made our departure easy. We hope to stay visit again soon.

Attending a destination wedding

  • of 5

The apartment was beautiful. The furnishing was modern and comfortable. The view was spectacular. Our one regret was not renting a car. Getting around would have been easier for us if we had. Besides a small glitch upon arrival, a phone number was not listed correctly, our stay was lovely. The neighborhood clearly has all different income levels living in it., but the building is very secure with the gates and locked doors everywhere. The housekeeper was very friendly. We would definitely come and stay again.

Lovely place with management challenges

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this property after staying at another property belonging to the same owner. We found some things to be the same and others very different. Both properties are very well remodeled and with thoughtful touches and nice quality furnishings. It seems that the difference is in 2 areas, key exchange and housekeeping. Due to the design of the building, the only way to get the keys is to meet with a person. We feel that the owner/manager put the wrong person in charge of the exchange of keys. We spent too much of our vacation time trying to figure out how to get the keys and when a time was set to meet, the housekeeper did not keep her word. Judging by her unprofessional-ism on the phone, the writing was on the wall and we were not completely surprised when she did not show with the keys. The owner wound up having to leave a family engagement to bring us the keys. It was slightly frustrating, but worked out in the end. The owner was friendly and it seemed as if this may not have been the first time that this happened. After a long morning in San Juan, we just wanted to start relaxing. Our second issue was with the cleanliness of the condo. To be honest with you, we had high expectations for cleanliness because of how wonderful this owner's other property is kept. We found this unit to have dirty knives in the drawer, hair in the bed, unswept floors, and grimy surfaces in the bathroom. The fridge contained a glass full of some beverage, which we wound up leaving there. I don't know if this was just a bad day for the housekeeper or if others have had this problem. We had to look for bathroom towels in the closet and found only part of them. The rest were up in a basket and we couldn't tell if they were clean or dirty. I would recommend reviewing the housekeeper's work and adding a mattress cover to the bed in addition to putting someone in charge of the key exchange who will be reliable, consistent and professional. As guests we pay $60-$75 cleaning fee for condo rentals. It is a reasonable expectation that we receive the condo in unquestionably clean condition.

Owner's Response: Thank you for all the recommendations. All points have been taken care of. We now have the housekeeper that cleans int he other Luquillo units. Also, the checkin and checkout process was changed and therefore, does not rely on someone delivering the keys. Now, we have installed a lockbox on the outside of the complex with a 4 digit code, so guests can pick up the keys whenever they arrive, even at 2AM, etc. That is a huge improvement for the easiness of our guests.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was absolutely wonderful! If I had anything to complain about, it would be our trip was too short! Waking up and going to sleep hearing the waves crash against the shore was incredibly relaxing. The condo was cleaned very well with upgrades and any amenities needed to be comfortable. We've been vrbo renters since the 90's and the comfort of this one tops them all. We are definitely planning another trip in the not so far future. My husband and I enjoyed our anniversary to the fullest. Thank you to the owmer and management of this unit. G&G
