My husband and I were born, raised and continue to live in southern Wisconsin. My husband is a financial planner and I work as a Project Manager for Telephone and Data Systems Inc. Our montra has always been to live life to it's fullest. We both love the outdoors, and spend most of the summer months in the garden, camping, fishing and horseback riding. We have three children; Philipp - 35; Executive Chef at Italia North Las Vegas (check it out if you get to Las Vegas), Chelsea - 26; married husband Mike and working at TDS with Mom, and Dylan - 25; Engineer at JP Cullen in Milwaukee Wi. All the kids enjoy our home in PR and come here often. We are also Grandparents - Ollie is 7 and Fern is 2 they are both great fun. Winters on the other hand can be quite cold in Wisconsin and about 20 years ago I began spending vacation time in Luquillo, PR. I always came home to relax and reenergized and my husband decided he needed to join me and find out what Luquillo, PR is all about. Needless to say several years later we purchased our condo. Our plan is to retire to Luquillo, PR at some point; in the meantime we would love to share our condo with you and your family. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Update: 2017 was a very difficult year and I lost my husband, along with the Cat 5 hurricane things have been rather difficult. My hope for 2018 is that the year will be filled with new exciting adventures. PUERTO RICO needs our help to thrive again please consider coming to PR there is plenty to see and do. Life is not the same as it was but we can contribute and help bring life back to this beautiful island.
Alana purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Alana chose Vilomar
After spending so many years vacationing in Luquillo, PR we have come to view it as our second home and decided it would be a great place to retire. We have made many friends in this beautiful little community. We love the friendlyness of the island; it's restaurants (Flamboyan, Brass Cactus, and Pasta y Pueblo) they all make you feel right at home. Having the beach right outside your front door; well the beach can fix anything....

The bedrooms are good sized. The front porch is a lovely place to relax. Some of the fixtures need updating though they are functional. The beach is a very short walk away with lots of great restaurants just a short drive away. The property manager was very responsive and attentive.
Couldn’t get much closer to the beach!
Spacious apartment and great location
My wife, infant child, mother, aunt and I stayed here for just under a week. We were looking for a place within walking distance of a calm beach, close enough to the highway and within an hour of the airport. We were not disappointed. The beach is about 100 yards from the condo. There were waves, but the waves were not rough. And if we wanted no waves, we only had to walk about 1/4 mile on the beach and arrive in much calmer water. With an 11 month old, it was perfect. The water was shallow, clear and calm. I did not want to stay in a high rise condo building, which Luquillo does have if that is your flavor. There is something to be said of being able to walk outside of your door , and not having to walk down a hallway, take an elevator down, and walk across a lobby just to get outside...Alana and her family were so accommodating and helpful to our needs, which was not much, but it was nice to know that she was very responsive when a few minor things came up. While it does not impact my five star rating of my experience, if there is anything negative to write about the property, it would be that there was the occasional vehicle that would drive by in the middle of the night with its music blasting. Then again, I was in PR during a Holiday weekend - El Dia de San Juan...Thank you Alana and have a wonderful summer!
THANK YOU for your review we appreciate the feedback. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay in our beautiful condo. Hope you are able to come and see us again. The Riley's
Great proximity to every activity!
My husband and I took our 4 children-20,18,15,12 to the Riley's place for 2 weeks. It was an awesome vacation! We liked being able to walk to the beach everyday! The waves were the biggest we've ever been in! Yet, small enough to play in. We surfed, did 2 hikes at the rainforest, kayaked the bio-bay, visited Old San Juan, and snorkeled at Tamarindo beach on the island of Culebra. Alana and her mother Bobbie, who lives next door were very helpful and hospitable.
I am so glad to hear you enjoyed our little piece of paradise. Sounds like you took in all the sites and activities. Thank you for the great feedback - it is really nice to hear from our guests. Hope you get a chance to come back and see us. Chow!
Great place, perfect location
We stayed here for a week and everything was just marvelous! The condo is exactly as described/pictured, and Alana was very helpful in setting us up with all that we needed. The beach is beautiful and only steps away. Lots of attractions are close-by (rain forest, bio bay, horseback riding, ferries to islands) and Luquillo has lots of restaurants. It's an easy walk to grocery store too. We've rented many apts before and this was really nice as everything we needed was provided - from beach chairs, sand toys & towels, to coffee filters & saran wrap. When we come back to Puerto Rico, we hopefully can stay again!
Magnificent Family Vacation
There are no words to express how amazing our family vacation was. Alana and her ENTIRE family were so accommodating it was breath taking. Having a room for each of the kids was perfect as it is the first time we did not have to share a room with our little girl on vacation. She was just a few steps away in her own little princess room. The boys shared a room which was perfect as they had their own space to be teenage boys! The kitchen was fabulous! Having a washer and dryer made life easier and when we did watch TV it was great for the kids. I also liked the fact that the rooms did not have TV. It made us watch TV together and spend more time together. The walk to the beach was just that .... a simple walk and it was amazing. The scenery was spectacular! Hands down the BEST vacation my family and I have ever had! I recommend the location and the property manager hands down to anyone.
Luquillo is centrally located; many bars, grocery, beach, restaurants, and public beach are all within walking distance. There is so much to do in Puerto Rico; you will enjoy the vacationers book that we have in the condo to explain many different activities that are available; our concierge is also available for questions/suggestions on activities available to you and your family. You must see El Yunque great day trip....
