Ideally situated in the NE part of the “Pearl of the Caribbean”, the view from the balcony speaks for itself. Literally, the balcony faces the beach, and depending on the season the roar of the waves can mute any conversion. I can only hope to share the wonderful times and conversations that have partaken on the balcony. Upstaged only, by its proximity to the beach. I decided to buy this place after renting the unit below and being enamored by its beach view. Now, I would like to share it with you.
The emphasis is on the balcony, and once rented, then you know why the eloquent description. Nonetheless, the condo is well-kept and very accommodating. It is located in the city-resort of Luquillo. It is about 25 miles from San Juan (30-45 minutes) and all the bustling city life. It is a perfect gateway to spend with your family away from the hectic routine of the city, yet, within distance of all amenities needed.
The condo has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. A total of 7 people can sleep comfortably. The master bedroom has a queen size bed. The other two rooms have bunk beds. One room has two single size bunks beds, while the other has a single bunk bed with a full size bed in the bottom and top is single. The kitchen is equipped with all necessities needed for any home cook meal.
Luquillo is filled with activities ranging from all kinds of water activities to hiking in the nearby fabled Yunque (National Rain Forest). There are several large hotels near the area with Casinos and multiple other activities.
Hello fellow travelers, I am Arturo and the owner of the condo. I am in US Navy. Being in the military you tend to travel often and see the world. There is nothing like traveling and having a place that lets you experience the charm of the area.
Arturo purchased this condo in 2008
Prior to my first deployment, I rented the unit below my mine. My whole family was there and we had a phenomenal time. I fell in love with the location and waited for a unit to be available. The rest is history
This was our first trip without children since our honeymoon - 25 years ago. The condo has everything you need. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony and enjoying the beautiful view. It is an easy walk to restaurants and the food kiosks. The local beaches offer surfing, body boarding and a calm beach if you have little ones. The location also provides easy access for day trips. El Yunque is minutes away. We also had an easy day trip to Patillas. The owner is very easy to communicate with and very responsive to questions. We had a great week and highly recommend this condo if you are seeking a relaxing and fun-filled vacation.
We are a family of two parents and 2 adult children. We spent 4 nights in this apartment in mid-March. We were very happy to have 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a kitchen and a dining and sitting area, instead of all four of us in one hotel room with a teeny microwave and refrigerator.
The location was exactly what we wanted: across the street from the beach and in a quiet community. Perfect sunrises every morning. The beach was not too rough for any of us. Such soft sand!!! And we loved the palm trees. We did not use the pool, but it looked great. We were a short drive from restaurants, shopping, kiosks and attractions. We visited El Yunque, went horseback riding and rode ATVs, went snorkeling out of Farjado. Easy drive to and from San Juan airport.
The apartment had everything we could possibly need for our stay. The kitchen had more dishes than we have at home! Hangars in the closets. Beach chairs, towels, coolers and boogie boards. A lending library of paper backs (We added to the collection) Free off the street parking. Washer/dryer.
Arturo was fantastic about contacting us before, during and after our stay.
We did have some problems with the Internet. That is the only reason we gave 4 stars instead of five.
My recommendation for future renters is to remember to print out the email from Arturo that has his phone number, the directions to the apartment from the airport and the list of things to do when first arriving. We all thought one of our devices would be able to connect to the Internet to read the email and directions while we were driving, as we do at home, but none of them could. We got resounding lost!!! Completely our fault, but totally avoidable.
This was a great place for our family. The kitchen was well stocked and the washer and dryer were very appreciated. The bedrooms were comfortable and the living room/dining area are pleasant. This is a well-situated address very close to groceries, Walgreens and the famous food Kiosks. The Beach was really great and the apartment came with bogie boards which our son had fun with. We spent part of our days in the rain forest which is an easy drive from the condo. We were interested in bird watching and hiking and being near the water, we were very happy with our stay.
We stayed here for three weeks. The Beach is just across the street and there is a great view from the 3rd floor balcony. There is a variety of beach types within walking distance and the rainforest is 30 minutes way by car. The condo is spacious and comfortable. The strong breeze off the ocean was good and bad in that it cooled the rooms easily but also left a consistent silt on the windows, furniture and floors. The roar from the surf was a little difficult to get used to when going to sleep, but not nearly as annoying as the noise from stereos in cars passing along the beach road (rare for the most part). On the weekend other units in the complex became occupied and some became quite disruptive. The Food kiosks are minutes away by car or if desired, a bit of a walk down the beach (I wouldn't try the walk at night) where there's a variety of eating opportunities. The Condo complex is not new by any means, but the owner of this condo has made efforts to update, and refurbish it. A rental car is definitely necessary. The Parking is secure as is the condo. All the locks and metal gates and doors were a little disturbing, but it seems to be the norm everywhere. The owner was easily accessible and helpful by email during our stay.
We had an eight night stay at this condo. It was very clean and had a great view. This particular unit had one of the best sunrise views in the complex. Security was fine and we never had a concern with safety. Lots of seniors would be walking the beach or streets in the am with no problems. The condo was well-equipped for the beach with coolers, beach chairs and boogie boards. The kitchen lacked nothing. Internet was spotty but who cares, it was good enough. Location to groceries, restaurants and El Junque was great. The beach was a blast, good surf in front for playing in the ocean, calm snorkeling 5 minutes to the left, and surfing 5 minutes to the right. Tough to find in the dark but fine in the daylight. The location, safety, well-maintained pools, well-supplied condo for the price makes this a five-star value. By itself the condo would be four star, it is not luxurious, but I would prefer an excellent value and you will be happy with this choice. There were no issues or need to call for assistance but the owner was kind enough to check with us by phone a couple times to make sure everything was fine. Security deposit was promptly refunded. We would definitely rent this place again.
We stayed for 8 nights at this condo. Location was excellent!! A 30 minute drive to San Juan, 15 minute drive to El Junge Rain Forest, 15 minute drive to Fajardo, all amenities right there, large grocery store, restaurants, a few bars. Many beaches to choose from right out the front door or a short walk/drive away. View was spectacular from balcony! Beach right in front of property a little rough but a short walk to the right, beach was very swimmable and great for boogie boarding. (2 boogie boards at condo, beach chairs, coolers) To the far right, next bay, is the surfing beach, to the far left, a 15 minute walk around next bay is the public beach, was awesome for swimming and chilling! A short walk from public beach is the Kiosk area, fun for shopping and eating, drinking! Staying in Arturo's condo was awesome! Lots of room, very comfortable space, a/c in each bedroom, and everything we needed. A rent a car is a must so you can get around. I highly recommend his condo, he was a very attentive and great host..... you won't be disappointed and the view will take your breath away every day :)
