Mark Malchiodi purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Mark Malchiodi chose La Pared
Direct Beach Front. The building sits on top of a large piece of granite jutting out into the ocean. The ground floor is 100 feet above sea level. There is always a breeze on the balcony where you can hear the waves crash hundreds of feet below. If you like to go for a walk you can walk for hours to the right of the property and see no one. It feels like you are shipwrecked on an island. Turn around and you can see waves for miles with a the rainforest as a back drop.
What makes this Condo unique
The rainforest is right behind the building. Drive for 15 minutes and you are already in it. I love the beach and watching the surfers.

All about the View
The view was amazing. Walking distance to local restaurants was a plus. The building was older so do not expect perfection.
Great Stay in Luquillo !
We had such a great time! Wonderful location(so many delicious food choices nearby) and beautiful view of the ocean. Property owner is very quick with communication and sends out a detailed packet about the condo and surrounding area. Very helpful !!
Love the view
Beautiful view of the beach
thank you for you kind review. The condo tower sits on a 100 foot rock and each floor is a double floor. When I go the first thing I do is open the balcony shutters and enjoy that view. Glad you had a good time.
Thank you. The apartment has a stunning view because it up so high. The interior design was done by my brothers wife. She has really good design tastes. I am glad you had a good time.
We missed our arrangements for the previous might and Mark was amazing about accomodating the stay and paperwork. He just wanted us to be safe and would deal with the back part after. Traveling with 3 children was stressful enough and Mark made is so much easier. Getting to the apartment was a breeze and very convenient. The 18th floor was an amazing view and cool with the windows open. Whole apartment was super clean and no signs of bugs not even mosquitos. All the rooms had functioning ACs and the beds were comfortable. Extra linens and towels were available as well as some bars of soap. Wifi worked great for steaming teens. and the kitchen has everything you need. The closets had plenty of room and beach chairs and boogie boards available. We had access to the beach gate on sat and sun between 9 and 6pm. Pool was closed but it didnt stop us from enjoying the stay Loosing 13hrs cramped our lounging time short for this weekend trip. Thank you Mark for sharing your home with us. Location is key and this condo was right on the highway close to everything in Luquillo. Amazing!
Thank you for your kind review. I try to help my guests out and this flight situation unfortunately has occurred for a number of my guests. I am glad I could help you out and that you had a good time.
Beautiful View and Apartment verty clean
My stay was on the 13th floor. Very beautiful view and inside was very clean and easy to keep clean. The only bad part about it was the two reason we were there. Pool and front walk to beach, both we did not have access too. Pool was not working and closed and security camra was not working so the gate was chained locked with no access to beach!! If you plan on a pool and beach walk be sure to ask owner if it is working. I was there March 13 thr March 17th 2018.
Yes the pool is out. The pool was damaged by an earthquake when hurricane Maria struck and will not likely be repaired until the end of summer.
But I wanted to be upfront about it and for each booking I send out a welcome notification document and in this document I state at the very beginning that the pool is out. I have been doing this since Feb when I started rebooking. I send this document the day the booking occurs or very soon after to notify the guests early so they are free to cancel without any penalty. I have also added, a few months ago, in each pool picture, that the pool is under repair to help avoid any misrepresentation.
Additionally once I read this review I tracked through the email conversations I had with this guest before they actually booked and found that they asked and I stated the pool is out. So I truly believe I was clear upfront.
Also this was the first guest that informed me that the front gate was closed. I called security and found the sensor was damaged because of the hurricane. However the beach is still very easy to access but just not super convenient to get to as before. Now instead of walking down the front steps of the complex about a 1 minute walk, you need to walk from the condo entrance to the beach which is a 5 minute walk. I will add some notification on this.
I try to be as upfront as possible and will strive to continue to do so.
