|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
We're in apartment #1210 at Playa Azul building 2 in Luquillo Beach town. Luquillo is a very famous tourism place in PR. It has the most incredible blue beaches that are renowned around the world as 'Bandera Azul', or Blue Flag, which is the highest distinction Available. The famous and wonderful "El Yunque National Rain Forest" is 5 min. from the apartment with its incredible waterfalls and hiking trails. Also we are very close to Fajardo's "Las Cabezas light house and forest reserve" and the famous bio-luminescent bay. The Bioluminescent bay is a great attraction and a great adventure. It's a beautiful and different experience due to consisting of a kayak night tour through the mangroves an into the lagoon.
The apartment is a corner unit on the 12th floor. Due to many windows it has great cross ventilation providing it with lots of ocean breeze. The windows from the kitchen and dinning room area also provide a beautiful ocean view. Even thou the altitude of the floor is not too high nor too low you will feel from the inside of the apartment as if you were on top of the ocean in a cloud. Come and enjoy our all year round great weather in a place where you will feel like home!.
I'm a real estate agent in Gurabo, Puerto Rico. An hour away from Luquillo. When I was very young, my grandfather had a house in Luquillo in front of the Ocean. Our family, uncles and cousins would spend most summers at this house in the beach. We always had such great time that I always said that when I could, I would buy a place there. It was the most frequented beach in the Island for Summer time. We used to meet school friends and new friends there even thou I lived in the metropolitan area. Everyone wanted to spend summer in Luquillo and many camped in nearby camping areas. It was the cool place to be. Time has changed and now is a very tranquil beach. This makes it much better because you can enjoy nature in peace, at it's best.
One day I was called by my uncle to sell an apartment he owned In Luquillo. When I arrived was just amazed at the views of the ocean and fall completely in love with the place. I had to have it! It was needing some love so I decided to spend lots of money and did it as new. I am planning on enjoying it more in my retirement Unfortunately for the time being work doesn't allow me to enjoy it so much so I decided to rent it and I hope you can enjoy it for the time being. This is the apartment that I'm offering with much pride.
Sheila Gonzalez purchased this apartment in 2003
This property has been prepared with lots of love and planning for your best experience in the Island. My greatest joy is for you to love Puerto Rico and Puertorricans and want to come back.
Completely remodeled! Great building with good security 24/7.
You will completely fall in love with the views and won't want to leave. From the kitchen, dinning and living area you really feel like in a cloud over the ocean. Great feeling!!!!
Our family (a couple with 2 kids) spent a week at this apartment during Thanksgiving 2009. The location is great if you want to use it as a base to explore different parts of Puerto Rico, specially the Northeast side, It is very close to El Yunque and Fajardo and not too far from San Juan. We also had a chance to visit Arecibo and Ponce.
The apartment had everything we could possibly need and the owner, Sheila, was very helpful welcoming us at the apartment and giving us hints. She even managed to get us a great babysitter one night so that my wife and I could go salsa dancing.
There is a great beach right in front of the apartment and it has a large pool. A car is definitely needed.
We highly recommend this apartment.
Upon arriving at San Juan airport with our family of 5, we rented our compact suv and headed for our destination. Making a stop at the Wallmart for groceries along the way ,we arrived at the complex. We were met by friendly staff at the gate, where we were given a parking pass and directed to the entrance to unload our luggage. Arrangements were made with Sheila earlier in regards to keys located in the lock box at the entrance to the condominium. Upon entering we were very impressed with the cleanliness and overall appearance of the facility. The accordian style patio doors allowing for an unobstructed view of the atlantic ocean was a highlight. The kitchen included a full size fridge, convection oven, and an apartment sized washer and dryer.
The main bedroom had a full size bed. The second bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds which were very comfortable. In the closet, there are beach chairs, umbrella, basketball, surf board, boogie board, ping pong paddles and more. This of course was a hit with the kids ! The bathroom was clean with updated tiled walk in shower. Our overall impression was clean, comfortable, practicle, and most of all we felt safe. And wow ! what a view ! The owner Sheila kept in contact via email throughout our stay answering any questions we had. She was quick to respond and offered helpfull information. The grounds to the building were well maintained consisting of a basketball court, tennis court, half court with a wall, playground equipment, and a pool. After opening a keyed access gate we were able to walk to Lequiilo beach in seconds.
As you can imagine, our family spent many hours along this gorgeous location. In regards to the surrounding area, there is a walgreens, mc donalds, wendys, gas station, and a bank within walking distance if you choose. In regards to travel time from The airport to the residence, it takes approx. 40-45 minutes.
Overall I would have no hesitation in recomending this facility to anyone wanting a relaxing comfortable and safe stay in Puerto Rico !
Thankyou Sheila from our family to yours !!
Sheila was a great host. Her place was exactly like the pictures. The Condo unit is very safe and close to one of the best beaches in Puerto Rico. It was great to have A/C and all the beach toys for our kids. The kitchen was very nicely stocked. Cable and internet were great. Shelia also helped us out when we left a baby monitor at her place when we left. She was willing to mail it to us after we left. This is a place we will probably come back to in the future.
We did not feel the place lacked anything.
Thanks for a great place to stay!!!
There is a reason that this condo has so many positive reviews! The owner is wonderful, attentive and helpful. I also cannot say enough about the staff/guards...they do a really good job. The complex is very secure, clean, and well maintained. The views are breathtaking (ocean AND mountains!) and the location is perfect. You can walk to so many places, you don't need a car, although I recommend renting one because there is so much to see and do in PR. Plus, car rentals are cheap, and taxis are not. Our group of 4 had more than enough room and we saved so much money by cooking many of our meals in the well-stocked kitchen. The pool is huge and clean, although we spent most of our days at the uncrowded beach which is right there.
This condo has everything you will need, and lots of extras. (iron/board, hair dryer, pack n play), My 3 year old was delighted to find toys and games. There's coolers, beach chairs and towels, an umbrella, etc. The wi-fi and cable tv worked great the entire 2 weeks we were there. As did the washer/dryer, which is SO NICE to have right in the condo. And I loved the library in the lobby area.
The owner has put together pages of helpful information about the condo, and about Puerto Rico in general. It truly feels like she cares about her guests enjoying their stay.
We toured the rainforest on our own. We took a catamaran to an outlying island and did some snorkeling. East Island Tours, out of Fajardo, I highly recommend them. They even had a mask and flippers to fit my little one, and their staff was amazing with her. We spent a day in Old San Juan, saw the forts and the town. Another must-do. We liked going to the kiosks, and for my birthday we had the best ribeye ever at La Parilla. It's not on the menu; you have to ask if they have any that night. We really liked the Brass Cactus (great burgers and fajitas, awesome staff) and it is walking distance to this condo. Also close by are a grocery store, a walgreens, and lots of pizza, sub, and fast food places.
The best part of our vacation was the people of Puerto Rico. They are so warm and friendly, and not in a fake "we just want your tourist dollars" way. (But when you support the local businesses, they truly appreciate it!) Complete strangers would go out of their way to make sure we were having a good time. And they LOVE children, and welcome them everywhere. They are the reason I plan to return again and again. Loved Luquillo, loved this condo.
Great place.....they thought of everything......towels, beach chairs, games, surf board.....etc. gated, clean, accessible, helpful....we will be back. Felt like home.
I had a very very good time Sheila was great good communication apartment as described I will definitely stay there again all the guard at the gate and front desk where very respectful and friendly it was a great experience A++++++++
Also in Fajardo which is 15 min away, you can set sail on one of many boats for rental or take the ferry to Vieques or Culebra. Also in Christmas season and Three Kings Day you can explore our culture and festivals. Viejo San Juan is only 40 min. away with historical sightseeing like 'El Morro Fortress', the Bacardi Rum Factory tour, lots of shopping, wonderful food and sightseeing in a ferry cruise on the bay. Good Hotels nearby like El Conquistador& Westin Rio Mar where you can find fine dining, casino, golfing, horseback riding, snorkeling, tennis, marina and dancing. There are 5 Golf courses in Rio Grande area.
