Are you looking for a beachfront location? Do you love panoramic coastline views from all the rooms in your condo? Perhaps you are looking for a place in the sun to relax and enjoy a well deserved vacation. You have found the right place!
'Dulces Suenos' translates as Sweet Dreams and this is what you will have at our beachfront Puerto Rican condo. This condo features large windows with amazing views of the coastline overlooking Playa Azul beach and is less than 10 yards from the courtyard to the warm sandy beach. Fall asleep on soft sheets and comfortable mattress' to the sound of the waves on the beach and the song of the Coqui's in the trees. Enjoy lovely views from every room in this 3 bedroom 2 bath corner apartment. A sweet place to relax and enjoy the laid back island lifestyle.
Watch beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the L-shaped balcony offering a completely non-obstructed view of the entire coastline. It is an 11th floor CORNER unit- above the palm trees with a view to the beach from ANY angle you choose.
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.
Our favorite activity is to walk on the beaches. It is less than 200 yards from the door of the condo across the courtyard to Playa Azul beach. You can walk for miles in both directions along the coast line of NE Puerto Rico.
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 with summer waves perfect for learning to surf and winter waves for those who are a bit more experienced. Continue past La Pared and cross over the small rocky outcrop to find the La Selva Nature Reserve (officially known as the Northeast Ecological Corridor) which is 3,240 acres of freshwater marshes, mangrove and other coastal forests, sandy beaches and coral reefs and with miles of rugged undisturbed coastline.
White herons and iguanas are often spotted in groves along La Selva. During the April to July season the Leatherback and green sea turtles can be found nesting in this beautiful location. Walking on La Selva you can expect to find sand dollars and other “treasures” of the Carribean.
Hike the nearby nature trails in El Yunque National Forest or visit Las Paylas water slides on the way to Sabana. Try surfing at La Pared with the surf instructors from the Luquillo surf shop. 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. Remember that the US Virgin Island of St. Thomas is also a quick 40 mile boat ride from Fajardo and the ferry runs twice each week.
No matter how you spend your vacation, you'll come away with lifelong memories to share with your family and friends.
The apartment has many amenities for a relaxing stay. It has a washer and dryer, refrigerator with ice maker, 42 in. LED/LCD HDTV with HD cable, high speed wireless internet, leather loveseats with recliners to seat 4 and a patio set with rocking chairs.
The kitchen is well stocked with many cooking and baking accessories like a blender, coffee pot, toaster, microvwave, pots, pans, pizza cutter, ice cream scoop and more items for your convenience.
There are many windows so it is breezy and fresh inside, no mugginess or sticky humidity and each bedroom has both a ceiling fan and AC unit... making this a very comfortable place to have sweet dreams.
The main living area also has a ceiling fan and many windows to catch the lovely tradewind breezes and make your days comfortable and relaxing.
To recap, the location is great to experience the island of Puerto Rico--
you have an ATM, McDonalds, Subway sandwich shop, Amigo grocery store, many restaurants and bars within walking distance of your condo. You also have both Fajardo and San Juan within driving distance. The entire island of enchantment is easily accessible from this beautiful location.

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.
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:)
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:)
