About Sheila Gonzalez

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

Why Sheila Gonzalez chose Luquillo

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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!!!!

Excellent apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Scenic, well located, comfortable and all amenities

  • 5 of 5

This condo always delivers on the important things for a vacation. It is well located right on the huge beach providing both walking opportunities, swimming and surfing opportunities. From the condo, you can walk to several very good restaurants, or choose to cook at home in the nice kitchen. Wifi, large screen tv and a wonderful balcony all contribute to a relaxing stay.

Terrific stay at Playa Azul in Luquillo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo exceeded our expectations. The view from the condo is breathtaking. Everything you could possibly need was provided. The beach is great for splashing in the waves or taking a nice walk. We loved the area, especially the kiosks, El Yunque Rainforest and Balneario La Monserrate Beach. Everything is close by. Sheila, the owner, was always available for questions. Would definitely return!
