Overview

Luquillo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 Beds, 2 Full Baths, Sleeps 8

If rented check out Luxury in Luquillo I (same fine furnishings).

Lap in the luxury provided by our 18 floor corner apartment sitting directly upon the beach in Luquillo. No roads to cross to obtain beach access, simply just walk down the steps directly upon our beach. To the left is La Pared one of the hottest surfing spots on the island, to the right is La Selva one of the longest undisturbed/undeveloped coastlines in all of Puerto Rico. This gated twin building complex sits high upon a granite rock towering over the beach whose waves create a wonderful sound as they dissipate upon the sand. On-site is a gym, pool, game room for the kids, gazebo and much more. The complex offers 24 hour security and garaged parking. The unit has been decorated using only the finest furnishings. Of the 3 bedrooms two have King Beds and the 3rd has a Twin Over Full Bunk bed with a trundle. The bedrooms accommodate 8 people.

Luxury Sleeping Arrangements: The beds are equipped with pillow top mattresses outfitted with 300+ thread count sheets. No, you will not find the plywood stiff mattress and the burlap bag sheets that many of the other condos offer. From the balcony you can look to the left and watch the surfers ride the waves or look to the right and see the Pelicans dive bombing for fish on La Selva’s miles of undeveloped beach.

Luxury Kitchen Described: Looking back over the interior of the island you will see the beautiful. El Yunque rain forest which is only minutes away. This place has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. All the beds, stainless steel appliances, maple cabinets, Corian counter tops, leather couch, leather chairs are all NEW. We have gone the extra mile and installed Italian doors throughout the unit. Watch your favorite stations from the states on our 36 inch LDC Wall Mounted TV via cable. Wash and dry your clothes right in our unit. Linens, towels, beach chairs, bogey board, fishing pole, silverware, and dishes are already included not to mention countless other items.

Entertainment: Entertainment is within easy reach. You can see the famous El Conquistador Hotel and Casino from the balcony and the El Yunque rain forest is easily viewable from any window in the unit. Fajardo’s marinas offer boating and sightseeing and Old San Juan and Condado are only 45 minutes by car.

Why Michael Malchiodi chose Luquillo

What makes this apartment unique

The view, the sound of the waves crashing I can hear them right now.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi!

Thank you for your response. Greatly appreciated.



The week was terrific - did just about everything on your itinerary and had a great time:

- Brass Cactus & the bakery in town square

- El Yunque Rain Forest

- El Conquistador



Loved the food shacks (aka: 'cholesterol alley') along Route 3 - stopped there several times

Plus the beach on the property itself - empty & undeveloped as far as the human eye can see.



All in all, memorable & worth coming back again in the future!

Fun in the sun

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Luquillo in this condo. The water at the beach is blue and beautiful. We had never experienced such "rural tropical" beauty. You can walk a couple hundred yards on the beach to the right of the condo and see nothing but palm trees and coconuts as you play in the waves...awesome!

Luquillo is also a great place to stay because it is close to all of the fun activities on the island: snorkeling, kayaking, rain forest, ferries to Culebra and Vieques.

Nice TV, kitchen, couch, dining area, ocean-front balcony. Owner is very knowledgeable about Puerto Rico and is very responsive to emails and phone calls. Gave us a lot of direction in planning our activities and made some great restaurant recommendations. Would definitely come back!

Owner's Response: I am glad you guys had a good time. The beach to right is a 5 mile nature preserve. In March and April the turtles come and lay their eggs on the beach and they are HUGE. There is a lot to do in the area as you mention. I enjoy going to the Puerto Rican Virgin Islands as well. I went last summer and was amazed that Vieques has really become a trendy spot. There were cajun, thai, haitain you name restaurants on the island. We will continue to go the extra mile.

Spring Breakaway from Minnesota

  • 5 of 5

The view from the condo was hard to beat. You could see the ocean and the beaches for miles and miles. The beach right outside the condo became our favorite place as the waves were huge. We loved taking the boogie boards and swimming in the ocean. All in all, we had a great time in Luquillo and enjoying all of the awesome food around the condo. We would definitely come back for another vacation.

Incredible Beach

  • 5 of 5

This condo's greatest asset is that it sits adjacent to an incredible undeveloped and wild beach that stretches several miles east. You take the elevator down, walk onto the beach, turn right, and your are alone. My wife and I walked it almost daily and hiking for over 90 minutes east of the condo you see nothing but ocean, dunes, sand, and the tropical forest. The only people we saw were a sea turtle reseacher and a Department of Natural Resources employee patrolling the beach. I brought my snorkeling gear with me and one hour hike from the condo is a quiet cove that is great for swimming through the reef. There are over 200 marked sea turtle nests on the beach and every day we saw fresh Leatherback Sea Turtle tracks from the night before leading to and away from the new nests. This condo is also only 10 minutes from Fajardo (ferry to Vieques and Culebra) and 20 minutes from Ceiba where we chartered a cheap flight to Culebra for the day--an amazing adventure in itself. I recommend this for anyone who desires a real beach experience--seeing how Puerto Rico may have looked when Juan Ponce De Leon was governor, 500 years ago.

Great location and condo has all you need

  • 4 of 5

My family (6 of us including 2 children and 2 grandparents) stayed at this condo in mid May 2011. Despite having more rain than even the locals could remember, we had a wonderful time staying at this condo in Luquillo with a few nice days (we knew May was the rainy season but it had more day long overcast/rains than usual). It is very close to the rain forest (amazing), a short 15 min. drive over to Fajardo (we took the ferry over to Culebra and spent the day at Flamenco Beach which is truly breath taking), and it only a half hour or so to San Juan which we didn't spend too much time in due to the small children but it was great to see/experience as well. Luquillo Beach (a short three minute drive) is also a great place to spend the day either for couples or a family; it has very calm waters to swim in, is exceptionally clean, nice facilities, a great little lunch spot with beer, alcoholic drinks and non-alcholic drinks alike; definitely pay the $5 or so to park in the actual park area as the area behind the kioskos is totally trashed by the locals. The kioskos are very unique to eat at and offer a great variety with our favorite being El Jeffe Burger. Other stand alone restaurants we also liked in Luquillo were the Brass Cactus (2 min. drive) where we ate twice, Pasta y Pueblo (sp?) which had the best food in the world for the very modest shack it is in, and Lolita's mexican restaurant (4 min. drive) was also great. The little surfer bar on the la pared beach just to the left of the condo was a great place for adults to hang out in the afternoon.

I did not find this as a negative as my wife and I have traveled out of the country to many island locations and we were aware of the poverty level area around the condo complex, but vacationers should be aware that the area (not beach front) surrounding the condo is a very poor/depressed community. This is typical of many carribean islands with the nice beachfront condos/resorts and directly behind them is the ghetto. We didn't go out much at night (walking) but during the day all of the people were nice and welcoming. My parents had not been out of the continental U.S. before and it took them a couple days to build up their comfort level as it is definitely different than Florida, etc.

I would recommed this condo and trip to families or couples who want to experience a great place and different culture. Also, Spanish is the primary language but everywhere we went someone spoke english.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect rental. We comfortably slept 7 people. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking gear and having a washer and dryer is invaluable when you have lots of people swimming and using towels. The place was clean and nicely furnished. It is only 40 minutes from the airport and very close to grocery stores and restaurants. The property is also close to El Yunque and the Fajardo ferry. There is an icecream shop and a bakery within walking distance. The complex is secure and manned 24 hours a day. The beach is beautiful, but a little rough for swimming - not really a problem since the lovely swimming beach is just minutes away. The owners provide a detailed explanation of the property and how to navigate issues. This was my 3rd trip to Sandy Hills and I could have used this kind of clear information the first time I came. Emails were promptly answered. My advice is to read the information the owners provide -( put water in the lint trap or else you will scraping lint off of the walls!) We would absolutely choose this rental again. Read the journal in the condo from people who have stayed before. There are lots of great tips. Puerto Rico is the best place to vacation.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your vacation. I agree PR is the best place to vacation. There are tons of things to do right in the area. A few new restaurants opened within 5 minute walking distance of the condo. My favorite is Boardriders where the beer is around 2 dollars each and it is right on the beach. The new zip line is another favorite. I finally got to walk on the beach to the right of the building. I walked for 1 hour without seeing anything except a few iguanas. Looking forward to my nex trip. We will continue to go the extra mile.
