Guestbook comments from the owner
"My son was attending a conference at a nearby resort where we could have stayed. Instead I found your condo and we couldn't have been happier. The private beach was beautiful and we were able to walk to the Kioskos from there. The roof top terrace was a delight during the day and evening. We had everything we needed to feel at home. I really appreciated how accommodating you were with our schedule of arriving at 4:00 AM ! El Yunque Rain Forest was a highlight of the trip and it was so convenient to our location. Thank you for your kindness and we hope to return soon!"

VERY HAPPY WITH CONDO, LOCATION AND OWNERS.

  • 5 of 5
This was our 1st family trip to PR. The 4th trip for my wife and I. The whole family loved our trip. We found the condo just as described and incredibly clean. Maria and Richard met us at the airport car rental place and were very friendly.
My girls ages 6, 10, 13 loved the condo and the location to beach(s). We would sit outside on the deck in the morning more, and up on the terrace more at night. The kitchen was well equipped and we grilled out 3 times. Our favorite places to eat where the Brass Cactus (best churrasco of the trip), Vejigante Kiosk, Erik's Gyros (went there twice - for lunch and breakfasts - the western omelet was awesome), Pasta y Pueblo was an experience, but possibly overrated (though the pesto pene pasta side was excellent), and Lotilas.
There was high surf for a few of the days, but it was fine to swim at Luiquillo beach, we went to Playa Azul a couple times as well later in the trip.
Mostly we walked to Luquillo beach, but on one day we drove and parked as we brought a cooler and more chairs etc.
The condo building was only 1/4 full most of the time we were there- so nice and quiet. On the weekend, it got a little busier, but was fine. We met some other friendly people there which was fun.
One thing to note, is that there is no wi-fi there and maybe 1 English TV channel (only turned on the TV once), but that was fine. We watched DVDs a few nights - the DVD and music system was good.
We did the Bio bay (do the early trip if you have kids or don't know how to kayak) and did some fishing one day, but other than a few trips to the Rainforest - the family just wanted to swim and play at the beach.

Thank you Maria and Richard for helping us have a great family vacation!

FELT LIKE HOME

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent a week at this fantastic location. I cannot speak highly enough of the views and the comfort of the accommodations. A great breeze blew through the main living area, and the bedrooms were comfortably air conditioned. Our highlight was the roof terrace which was very spacious. We drank coffee here each morning,and ate dinner in the evening under the stars, listening to the sounds of the coquis in the palm trees on the back side of the terrace. The beach is steps away and it is shallow and great for younger children right outside the gate. Just a short walk away is a deeper area which was perfect for boogie boarding with our older children/teens. The complex is gated and felt very secure. There were a lot of people staying in the condo when we were there and noise was never an issue. This was a nice central location for taking day trips to Old San Juan, and the El Yunque rain forest.
If I could, I would rate the owners higher than 5 stars. The condo was very clean. Richard and Maria treated us like family. They were clear with communications prior to our arrival. We asked to change plans close to the time of our arrival, and they were warm and very accommodating with their responses. The condo was well stocked with everything we needed for cooking and cleaning up afterwards, chairs to take down to the beach, and even sunscreen, in case we ran out! We felt like we were staying with friends.
Driving in and out of the complex was pretty congested, and tricky at times, due to us staying during a holiday week, but I imagine you will find that anywhere. Highly recommend.

PRIVATE, SECURE, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This is the second year we have stayed at this property with the same great experience. Location is unbeatable being on the beach, near El Yunque Rain Forest, and Fajardo (for East Island Excursions). The nearby Brass Cactus Bar & Grill is a great place to eat, even with picky teenagers. Comfortable, relaxing accommodations at the property. Property description is accurate. Property was clean and well-maintained. Beach chairs and accessories available on balcony to take to beach - nice, unexpected bonus. Secure property with gates and staffed security, although never felt unsafe in the area. Our favorite place on the property, aside from the great beach, was up on the terrace. There are many parked cars along the beach road leading to/from the property, especially on Sundays, but locals are very nice - don't let it overwhelm you. Richard and Maria are great to work with. Richard has been right there at the rental car agency with the keys and instructions, ensuring a stress free connection and start to vacation. Listen carefully to the driving directions to get to the property. Our first experience finding the property in 2013 created some great memories, but being lost is not recommended. When we gave up trying to find it on our own, Richard was available by phone to give us turn-by-turn navigation to the property. We will be back to the same property in 2015.

WONDERFUL STAY, WILL DEFINITELY RETURN!!

  • 5 of 5
All the other reviews are spot on. Richard and Maria have a beautiful place and they maintain it wonderfully. The serenity of the location and its safety are wonderful, doesn’t get much better in Luquillo. Walking distance to 3,4 beaches (gentle swimming, or rolling waves, or surfing waves, whichever you prefer) and food kiosks, and all down perfect tropical beaches, no roads necessary! A car is great to have for day trips (we went to El Yunque, Fajardo, even Guavate for a drive down the Ruta Lecheron for some roast pork lunch!) and food shopping, which is 3 minute drive down the road. The apartment is amazingly clean and very well appointed, and has everything you could need (outdoor shower for sand removal, W/D, coffee maker, ice maker, games, magazines, tv, radio w iPod dock, even shampoo!). There is a lovely back patio that is a great place for a morning cup of coffee, and to watch the hummingbirds and bananaquits in the palm trees. The real gem is the rooftop area, so much space to lounge and grill and eat. We saved much money by cooking breakfast and dinner for ourselves every day (lunch at the kiosks, 60 different places to choose from!) We were visited every night by a couple of coquis and a gecko up there as well! They also provide everything you need for beach days; chairs, towels, coolers. You fall asleep every night to the peeping of the coquis with no other noise but waves on the beach out in the distance. Our biggest decision every day was whether we walk right down the beach or left. If you have kids there are swings down by the beach and a sandy play area and the apartment has beach toys. Families, romantic couples, friends, everyone can enjoy this place! I am telling everyone I know about it and cannot wait to come back! Thanks so much for such a great place to relax and enjoy Puerto Rico!

ISLA DEL ENCANTO - ISLAND OF ENCHANTMENT

  • 5 of 5
I wanted to show my children the wonderful island of my childhood, Puerto Rico. We couldn't have stayed at a better place, believe me I searched. We were greeted at the airport by the owners, Richard and Maria who were very helpful.

This condo is in a great location. Safe and secure with security guard and automatic gate. Literally three steps to the beach from the property. The water was deliciosly warm and clear. Plenty of spots to snorkel and enjoy the myriad of colorful ocean fish.

You get a nice balcony by the living-room and upstairs the wonderfull roof-top terrace. We had countless meals enjoying the view of El Yunque rainforest.

The kitchen was fully stocked with pots and pans and I was able to cook-up a storm and save $$. You don't have to cook though, cause there are plenty of good restaurants in the area. We discovered a wonderful restaurant owned by a Texan that has settled in PR, The Brass Cactus, great food and sports bar.

You can have a great time walking to Luquillo beach along the shore, or explore the local scene. Lots of things to see in the local area. The only rainforest in the US Forest Service, Puerto Rico's brightest bioluminescent lagoon and a chain of small islands of the fajardo coast that you must visit if you come down here. (La Cordillera Nature Reserve: Cayo Icacos, Palominito, Diablo, Lobos...)

All this at a reasonable price, what else can you ask for?

AN AMAZING STAY AT A BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT.

  • 5 of 5
First of all, Maria and Richard.. Thank you. You are two of the nicest people. The apartment was more than we expected. We had 3 people stay and there was plenty of room. The beds were comfy as well as the furniture in the living room. This place had every amenity you could ask for. The air conditioning worked perfectly and kept the whole place cool. We felt safe at night because of the on sight security guard and everything was fenced in. That was really nice.
The beach was fantastic. Not a whole lot of people were on it, which made it extra special. The views from the private terrace were fantastic. We spent a lot of time up there at night. You can hear all the frogs! The apartment is about 45 minutes from the airport and very close to stores and restaurants.
Overall, a terrific experience. We will be back.
