Fajardo is known as 'La Metrópolis del Sol Naciente' (the city that guards the sun of the Caribbean). Fajardo is one of the most beautiful spots on the island's shores. Located in the east region of the island, bordering the Atlantic Ocean, north of Ceiba and east of Luquillo.
Fajardo is a major boating center, with a wide range of rentals and charters available, with daily and sport-diving excursions as well as scheduled ferries and air service carrying passengers and cargo to Culebra and Vieques.
Puerto Rico's perfect beaches are bounded by calm, clear water ideal for snorkeling, Luquillo and Seven Seas Beach, offers plentiful water sports facilities, offshore points for sailing, snorkeling and plenty of scuba diving.
Magnificent ocean views and ocean breeze from a newly renovated and decorated 26th floor, corner apartment overlooking the vast turquoise waters, the sunrise, marinas and the Conquistador Hotel. Look into the bay and see Manatees and Sea Turtles feeding.
There is an olympic size pool overlooking the ocean, tennis courts, and many lovely gazebos equipped with BBQ grills. Located close to Seven Seas Beach, Luquillo Beach, and El Yunque Rain Forest. Golf and gambling at the El Conquitador Hotel or Palmas del Mar Hotel are just a golf swing away.
Property is conveniently located on the marina, where you could choose to try a day trip on one of the many large catamarans for snorkeling, or a ferry ride to Culebras, Vieques, St.Thomas and St. Croix.
We enjoyed our stay in the lovely Condo so much that we have rebooked it for 2013. With gorgeous views of the ocean to the back and the rain forest to front we spent many hours on the balcony enjoying the wild life and the tremendous upkept grounds. The Condo itself was very clean and comfortable and had all the emenities for home away from home. It has been very enjoyable to deal with Millie, she is right on top of any questions or concerns we had when we rented. We are looking forward to next year.
My wife and I travel extensively (world-wide), and It's rare that we find an accomodation like this. It is not only convenient to most of the "must see" places in PR, but also a wonderful place to embark upon day trips to the beautiful (formerly) Spanish Virgin Islands of Culebra and Vieques. The beaches, water, snorkling, diving are outstanding.
That having been said, we found it hard to tear ourselves from the condo! It's an end unit on a very high floor with lots of windows which afford outstanding views in three directions. The balcony felt like an eagle's perch WITH FAST WIFI. What a great place to escape, and yet keep up.
We haven't met Millie, but hope to someday. She's a joy to talk with, and to rent from. We hope to do it again soon. A week wasn't long enough for us to fully explore the area, or especially to enjoy the condo.
If you find this one available, don't hesitate to book it.
My husbabnd and two college aged daughters recently stayed at this beautiful condo. The oceanfront view from the condo is outstanding. We were able to relax here for a few days before we went to Vieques for a week. El Yunque and Luquillo beach are very close and I would highly recommend. The owner was very helpful and provided us with a list of restaurants and activities that she recommended. The condo was very clean, the grounds beautiful and my girls enjoyed the pool. I would absolutely stay there again
After some last-minute planning, our family of three stayed in this two-bedroom condo in a high-rise overlooking Fajardo's marinas. I worried that because I hadn't had time to research every available option that I would regret my hasty plans. NOT SO!
There are views from every window in every room of this apartment -- two marinas, the bay, the islands, the rainforest, mountains, a beach below. I was concerned about being 26 floors up because of our son, but the balcony is completely enclosed in a railing. (You think it's going to spoil your view, but you quickly forget about the railing.) The sunrises were gorgeous and, yes, we spotted the resident manatee!
This is a very central location, a ten-minute drive to the beautiful public Seven Seas beach, as well as close to more inaccessible beaches. We walked around a peninsula to a beach below the lighthouse and had the place entirely to ourselves. From here, it's about 20 minutes to El Yunque rainforest, maybe 15 minutes to Luquillo, which also has beaches, along with Hacienda Carabali, where you can ride horses or drive ATVs and go-karts. It's an easy one-hour day trip to Old San Juan. Kayak and boat tours to the bioluminescent bay are just 10 minutes away in Las Croabas harbor -- you must do this! The catamarans that take you out to the islands to snorkel are right next door.
It's fun to be in a place where you can experience the local community -- we got our coffee from a local bakery every morning and had dinner at some of the small restaurants and tapas bars that line the road to the beach. We rented snorkeling equipment from a local dive shop. You couldn't ask for a better location.
The apartment is attractively furnished and invitingly clean. Along with the two bedrooms, there are two day-beds in the living room that can be used as couches and for sleeping. The kitchen is stocked with utensils, dishes and cookware and has a microwave, all of which came in handy, so we didn't have to eat out every night. The complex has a huge and beautiful pool overlooking the water -- for you lap swimmers, it's about 36 strokes long. There is a playground and facilities for grilling and picnicking on the grounds, although we didn't make use of them.
The owner was gracious in working with us on such short notice. I am so glad we saw this listing! We highly recommend it. Thank you, Millie!
My husband and I had a wonderful time visiting Fajardo, PR. This property is everything we needed in a vacation home. The moment you walk off the elevator you’re welcomed with the most wonderful ocean breeze and views. The views from the balcony, and every window are spectacular with the beautiful blues and greens of the ocean and marina. From the balcony we even got to see a mother and baby manatee feeding in the waters below. I was told that they come around everyday around 3 or 3:30 to feed. If you get a chance, look out for them… they are such a treat. The grounds have great sitting areas and are beautiful for strolling. The entire set up of the apartment is excellent. Very clean, beds are comfortable, kitchen fully equipped with everything we needed and then some. Plenty of closet and draw space. The owners have definitely put a lot of thought and work into making this a home-away-from-home. El Conquistador is only about 5 minutes away with excellent restaurants/bars, casino and dancing. Luquillo and Seven Seas beaches are also a short drive away. Enjoy!
What a pleasant surprise.After much research, my wife and I discovered this little gem in Fajardo, Puerto Rico. This two bedroom condo has outstanding views of the Caribbean and lovely mountain views.
Located by two marinas, the grounds are breath taking.The apartment is very clean and well equipped.The owner Millie, has made sure that you do not lack a thing.
Boating is just several steps away. Ferry boats to the islands of Culebra and Vieques are 5 minutes. There are 2 beautiful beaches close by. Along with world class restaurants this is a wonderful area to vacation. The owner has really made this a home away from home. You will not go wrong with a stay at this location.
