DULCES SUENOS-PLAYA AZUL 3 BEACHFRONT W/ GORGEOUS VIEW

Luquillo Condo Rental Photos and Description

Playa Azul #3 Condo with 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

'Dulces Suenos' translates as Sweet Dreams. Allow the sound of the waves and the song of the Coqui's to lure you to dreamland.

Things to do:

• Begin each morning on the 11th floor balcony watching the lovely sunrise over the ocean.

• Our favorite activity is to walk on the Luquillo beaches. It is less than 200 yards from the door of the condo across the courtyard to Playa Azul beach.

• Hike the nearby nature trails in El Yunque National Forest or visit Las Paylas water slides on the way to Sabana.

• The reefs just off the beach have an abundance of sea life and snorkeling in 80 degree water is always a pleasure.

• A quick 10 minute drive to Fajardo will put you in one of the largest marinas in the Caribbean with many deep sea fishing, open water sailing and scuba charters available.

• Walk along the beach to visit La Selva Nature Reserve (officially known as the Northeast Ecological Corridor) 3,240 acres of freshwater marshes, mangrove and other coastal forests, sandy beaches and coral reefs and with miles of rugged undisturbed coastline.

• Join the activities of the gated common area with pools, tennis court, handball and basketball courts and several areas of playground equipment for the smaller guests.

• Fajardo and San Juan are both an easy drive.

• The entire island of enchantment is easily accessible from this beautiful location.

The Beaches of Luquillo:

• Walk to the west along Playa Azul beach and you will find a quiet shallow bay with flat calm waters and continue on to arrive at the famous blue flag Luquillo Beach.

• Heading to the east you will come to La Pared a local surfing beach. Try surfing at La Pared with the surf instructors from the Luquillo surf shop.

• La Selva has miles of empty beach to explore and is just beyond La Pared to the east of the condo.

• Balneario Monserrate is a Blue-Flag beach with BBQ grills and life-guards on duty.

Area Wildlife and Caribbean “Treasure”:

• White herons and iguanas are often spotted in groves along La Selva.

• Leatherback and green sea turtles can be found nesting during the April to July season on La Selva.

• Sand dollars and other “treasures” of the Caribbean can be found on the local beaches.

Condo Specialties:

• Air Conditioning and ceiling fans in the living room and each bedroom

• Washer and dryer in the condo

• Refrigerator has an ice maker

• 42” LED/LCD/HDTV with HD cable

Guestbook comments from the owner
We have stayed in this apartment for the past five years and have seen the various owners improve the place nicely. There are new windows and doors, and new kitchen with washer and dryer. It is convenient to the pool and beach and town.

Hello,

I am a respiratory therapist for the local critical care transport team. Don is a produce buyer for a local produce warehouse. At home we have a sweet little Siamese mix named Sassy.

The love of our life is our sweet little grandaughter. Her parents are pretty special too. Little Miss keeps us busy on our days off from work since we get to spend a lot of time with her.

We love to travel to warm tropical locations especially in the winter to escape the dreary Pacific Northwest weather.

Brandi purchased this condo in 2011

I read about the Bio-bays in Puerto Rico and wanted to visit the island so we arranged a vacation and when we arrived we fell in LOVE with the island and the local people.

We previously had traveled to other locations and the locals were not terribly friendly but Puerto Rico was different. We spent our first day walking on Jobos Beach and we were approached by a local who recognized us as tourists (white skin turning red at amazingly fast rates probably was the give-way..LOL) and offered to show us the area while sharing information about both the local area and island in general. This was not an isolated incident, several times we were shown local sites by local people who are proud of their home and want to share it with others.

Puerto Rico is nicknamed the 'Isle of Enchantment' and it truly enchanted both my husband and I.

We are a few years from retirement and we decided to purchase a condo so when we are ready to retire we have it available but since we can only visit 2-3 times each year we thought why not rent it and let others enjoy the warm island of Puerto Rico.

My favorite thing about our condo is the proximity to the beach. I love to be on the sand and in the salt water and falling asleep to the rhythm of the ocean. It is wonderful to have the access with no drive! Just a short walk across beautifully maintained grounds and you are on the sandy beach with reefs to snorkle right there. Listening to the waves crash is very relaxing at night hence the name- Dulces Suenos (Sweet Dreams).

Luquillo is located outside the metro area but has excellent access to the entire island.

El Yunque is a quick 15 minute drive to the trailheads and tourist center.

Fajardo is a 10 minute drive for fishing, snorkeling and scuba charters.

San Juan Metro is a 30 minute drive for shopping, dining and dancing.

Old San Juan is 35 minute drive for all the tourist attractions like El Morro and also many artisan shops.

Come and let Puerto Rico enchant you:)

You need to come here!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from the most amazing family trip. Our children are 18 and 11 and they were crying on our last day, they wanted to stay. The condo is perfect in every way: the views, the comfort, the amenities, the convenience, the beach, everything!!

The owners do everything to make sure you have a good time. We are going back as soon as possible. There are binders full of information for just about everything you can think of, as well as handy GPS coordinates to almost every location. You could easily stay for a month and probably still wouldn't do everything.

The beach in front of this property has it all. We LOVE to snorkel and while the reef isn't gigantic, it is perfect for our family. My husband and I have snorkeled before, but this was the first real time for our kids and they just loved it. The water in front of the condo is crystal clear and the waves are gentle. If you want to surf, you can do that a short walk to the right. If you want to ride a boogie board, a very short walk just to the center of the beach will get you some good waves for that.

The kitty cats out front were cute too! Our kids loved to pet them and give them a little piece of dinner left overs.

GO HERE! You will not regret it ever.

EVERYTHING AND MORE!!

  • 5 of 5
We rented 3 condos (one for each of our kids & fams and one for us) in Playa Azul III and had a fun-filled and relaxing stay after Christmas and through the beginning of the New Year. Brandi's condo is just so excellent. It's beautifully decorated and has plenty of equipment to use on the grounds and on the beautiful beach. Boogey boarding was enjoyed by all (ages 5-75), as was creating sand structures and pits. The kitchen is fully equipped and the balcony has panoramic views. The sound of the surf is delightful. We were so close to El Junque, where we walked and also zip-lined. It's not far at all from Fajardo, where the ferries are, and quite close to restaurants in Luquillo, and the kioskos, an array of diverse little open air cafes and shops just west of Playa Azul. If you want to kayak, the best deal is to rent one by the hour on the calm beach behind the kioskos. With close-by grocery stores, it's easy to fill the kitchen with food for at home meals. With 3 condos we all had our own little place to escape to if we were in the mood. The sunrise out the east windows was stunning! Brandi is so attentive to detail, including several notebooks telling everything about what to do in the area. In all, we totally enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Brandi's condo.

Fantastic condo, fantastic beach and fantastic owner

  • 5 of 5
First, the pictures do not do justice to the view. The condo totally faces the ocean and the view is breathtaking as you enter. Second, the owner is a pleasure to deal with and she goes the extra mile to assist: she almost makes you feel like a family member. The condo is clean, well equipped and even comes with beach chairs and toys. Beds are comfortable as well and the washer and dryer come in handy. While it is not in the hustle and bustle of Puerto Rico, it is easy to get around from its location and there are a number of restaurants and grocery stores close by. And the beach is no doubt one of the best in Puerto Rico. We would definitely go back.

Wonderful time in Luquillo

  • 5 of 5
For starters the homeowner was absolutely amazing and helpful beyond our expectations. She answered every e-mail and question so quickly and with kindness!!! The condo was clean and has an incredible view of the ocean. My family and I found everything we needed provided for us for a super comfortable and convenient stay. Beds are comfy, air conditions in bedrooms made for a great nights sleep and the whole place was super well equipped! We had a fabulous time and the Luquillo location was great for all of the activities we did on the water :) Highly recommend heading to Fajardo for a trip out to Culebra and Flamenco beach, fishing charter and Biobay tour. My kids also did a private surfing lesson right in Luquillo at La Pared which was just 2 minutes from the condo and an awesome lesson!!!!

Brandi- Thank you so much allowing us to stay at your beautiful condo. This was our 2nd time visiting Puerto Rico and it was just as great as the first time. It was myself and my husband and our 2 boys, ages 8 & 6. The condo has everything. Washer/Dryer, 3 bedrooms, boogies boards, beach chairs, AN AMAZING VIEW OF THE OCEAN, a corner balcony, dishes, a pool. We loved falling asleep to the waves crashing and waking up to the glorious sun and ocean. This will have been our 5th time using VRBO and we were not disappointed. There was always constant communication with Brandi and the directions to the condo from the airport were very clear.

Some of the things I would recommend would be doing a day sailing trip on a Catamaran with the SPREADEAGLE II (Snorkelpr.com). I had researched about 5 companies. We went to 2 places to snorkel. The first is Iacocos, a small island about 45 minutes away from Fjardo, there were probably 4 other boats there as well. BUT the 2nd place....we were the ONLY boat there. They anchor in crystal clear 15 feet deep water and you get to snorkel with so many fish. It was the highlight of the trip. And they have a great lunch buffet, drinks, cocktails and snacks.
We also hiked in the El Yunque rainforest. We visited Juan Diego Falls. I would recommend these falls because we were the only visitors enjoying them. You see buses and vans dropping droves of people off at the other 2 falls and you do not get to enjoy this amazing beautiful place like you should.
We also kayaked the BioBay. The company we went with was Enchanted Island EcoTour. Trust me, go with this company. They had 4 guides with a group of 24 pple. And with us having small children, kayaking in the dark through very narrow mangroves, and also having to navigate other "kayaking" traffic, you want a company who takes the time to talk about safety. They also do a great job educating as well.
We ate at the Kiosks for lunch one day, it was really good, but seemed like all the choices were fried. Our fave place was the Brass Cactus. GREAT mojitos, and chips/salsa, steaks and burgers. We also ate a El Sabor (salsa pique), Boardriders (great fish tacos) and Guavas. I had coffee every morning from Aromas. You can walk the beach to Guavas, Aromas and Boardriders. I hope that we will be back very soon to Liquillo!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! I totally agree that Enchanted Island is AWESOME, I always enjoy my trips into the Bio-Bay with them. We haven't hiked to Juan Diego Falls yet but that is on my list for next week( thank you for the idea) and Aromas is the best!

Thank you for the wonderful review and thank you so much for taking care of everything while you were at the condo! We appreciate it.

The real view from the balcony is so breathtaking that the accompanying photo above does not do it justice. Brandi is the best hostess anyone could ask for. Her information on shopping, restaurants and activities provided just what we needed for our 6 weeks in Puerto Rico. For a memorable vacation try Puerto Rico and for a really remorable vacation, rent at Dulces-Suenos. We have been going away each Winter since 1998 and this was absolutely the BEST.

From Luquillo,Puerto Rico:

~About 20 minutes to El Yunque rainforest.

~About 30 minutes to San Juan -- Old San Juan is well worth a visit.

~Isle Verde and Condado beaches are not nicer than the Playa Azul beach but the tourist crowds make it fun to visit for a day.

~Las Croabas / Fajardo boating area with night trips into the Laguna Grande Bio-Bay. The Bioluminescent bay of Fajardo is a short 10 minute drive from the condo and one of the most amazing natural phenomenons I have ever seen.

~A day trip from Las Croabas to Cayo Icacos is a wonderful beach / snorkeling visit -- the beach is magnificent with crystal clear water on this small coral island. Many group charters will take you there for around $80 per person.

~A ferry trip from Fajardo to Isla Culebra to see the magnificent Playa Flamenco (the ferry was $2 for a one hour trip -- the trip to Culebra can be rough (dramamine is usually available) but the return is usually gentle.

There is much to do relatively close to the condo.

**If you want to map a distance on Google maps use the Luquillo Cemetary as your starting point- it is the closest landmark to the condo.** I have links to many maps already just email for more information:)
