Our beachfront getaway is on the 6th floor of Playa Azul I, in the seaside village of Luquillo, located in the northeast coast, northwest of Fajardo; and east of Rio Grande. It is approximately a 30 minute drive from San Juan Airport.

Michael lives in Minneapolis MN in the freezing cold winters. I love traveling, meeting new people and experiencing other cultures.

Michael purchased this apartment in 2012

Luquillo is special to my family. We started vacationing here 7 years ago as a family and were 'hooked!' Playa Azul I is on the beach with the scenic views we love.

Our apartment has views of both El Yunque Rainforest and the ocean. We feel so relaxed and at home in Playa Azul. We hope you will feel the same!!

GREAT VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely 2 bedroom spot with an amazing view of the beach across the street! Both room have good AC, the beds are comfy, the beach is fantastic, and the pool is also good. If you are coming with kids, there is a nice playground, and there is actually a pack 'n play in the apartment, which we didn't realize, so you don't need to travel with a crib. I will go back for sure! The rainforest is close, there is a super market nearby. Overall we had a great time with two little kids. Thanks!

GOOD LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
Perfect location for all the activities that we wanted to do. Loved the lay out with the bedrooms separated by the living room and each bedroom had its own bathroom. Management was very friendly and helpful.

PERFECT FOR OUR LONG WEEKEND TRIP

  • 5 of 5
This place fit our needs perfectly. It's not some super posh resort (nowhere in Luquillo is), but it was nice and clean enough and was strong in the places that we were most interested, namely that it had a big balcony with a nice view and a good location.

The place was missing a few simple things like a sponge and trash bags, but we were able to pick those up at the Walgreens across the street. It was also only a short drive to all the things we were interested in over near Luquillo, namely Balneario Monserrate, El Yunque, the Fajardo Ferry, the Bio Bay, and the Kiosks.

When at the condo we spent most of our time on the spacious, gorgeous balcony which was the main reason we chose this condo.

It's located in a bit of a rough looking area (again, most of Luquillo is going to look this way compared to a nice suburban neighborhood) but we never had any problems and the actual building itself is gated with a security guard.

PARADISE IN PUERTO RICO

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just spent 15 days at your wonderful condo. It was everything you said it would be and more. Beautifully decorated, and had everything we needed. Two bathrooms were a plus. We loved the ocean breezes and the sound of the surf from the condo. The location was the best, with the beach and water being right there. All the amenities, both in the condo and at Playa Azul were great. I especially loved all the cats. Thank you for all the tips on places to eat, shop, and things to see. So many within walking distance. El Flamboyan was a favorite of ours, great food and cheap beer. We met so many wonderful people at Playa Azul and loved partaking in the St. Patrick's Day festivities - parade and meal. The Rain Forest is a must for anyone that has never been to one. It was breathtaking. And the roadside eateries on the weekend gave us a good "taste" of the local culture. Definitely a trip we will always remember. Thanks again.

GREAT VIEW OF PLAYA AZUL BEACH - NICE LOCATION FOR DAY TRIPS

  • 3 of 5
My family of 4 (including 2 teenage boys) stayed for a total of 8 nights at Playa Azul I the first week of June 2013. We chose to stay in Luquillo due to the close proximity to the El Yunque Rainforest. It is also a very simple and relaxing town to stay in with restaurants within walking distance and makes a great hub for day trips to other parts of the island. The view from the condo is AMAZING and the balcony is great.
However, PLEASE BE ADVISED that while we were there 2 people drowned on the beach directly in front of our condo and one of them was even a rescue worker/lifeguard who drowned trying to save his son, who also drowned. This is not a safe beach for swimming. It is gorgeous, but not advisable to go out more than 8-10 feet from the shore, if that. There is a very safe and tranquil beach just a few minutes by car, Monserrate Balneario, which is a public beach area right by the famous Luquillo Kioskos. It is about $4 a day to park there and there are showering facilities and snack/drink vendors. Monserrate Beach is a gorgeous and serene beach with clear, calm waters.
The condo has ample room for a family of 4 with 2 separate bedrooms and a rollaway bed as well. There is a small kitchen and laundry in the kitchen area. Not very spacious but if only 1 person is in the kitchen cooking it is adequate and has all the pots, pans, utensils and serving pieces that you will need. The condo is gated and you will have 1 key to go in and out of the gate to the beach, which is kept locked and you will not be able to use the gate after 6pm as it will be chained up at that time. There are no exceptions. There is a large pool and basketball courts on the grounds. The guards are helpful and friendly.

This is a clean, basic condo that has everything you need for your stay in Puerto Rico, my favorite place on earth :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your valuable feedback!

It's true. The beach directly in front of the Playa Azul complex is better for wading or body surfing. As long as you pay close attention to the undertow or keep your feet planted, you'll be fine. I've spent hours at a time standing in the water past the breakers on this beach as well as at La Pared. Although there's minimal wave action, I've been bitten by fish at Monserrate Balneario before. It just goes to show that the ocean and all of it's contents require your respect and attention.

To address your specific 3-star concerns. There are two sets of keys available upon request. Just ask for them from the property management office. The kitchen is galley-shaped and the layout will be improved at some point, but is a very functional size considering this is a two-bedroom condominium. There is a strong emphasis on security at the Playa Azul complex. The beach gate gets chained so that it doesn't provide an unwatched entrance from the street. You can still walk around from the main gate if you want to go to the beach for a moonlit walk. Myself, I enjoy the moon glistening off the water while sitting on the balcony at night, that is, when I'm not taking advantage of the nightlife at the Kioskos or El Flamboyan.

RESTFUL RETREAT; AWESOME BEACH ACCESS!

  • 5 of 5
We particularly enjoyed this VRBO for its access to the beach. We were able to take long morning walks all the way to Luquillo beach each morning. It was also in easy proximity to walk to dinner every night or to the kioskos during the day. It was easily reachable by PR 3 and provided us easy access to the east coast and Fajardo as well as Loiza and San Juan. We used it as a launching off point for several excursions to the ferry at Fajardo, El Yunque, and the Pinones forest.

The rooms were large and the kitchen well appointed. We found a grocery store nearby and were able to cook many meals in the kitchen and found every tool we could need. Beach gear in the form of towels, sand castle making materials, and chairs were available for use. The laundry access was a life safer! Also, we enjoyed borrowing several books from the library in the lobby downstairs.

Enoc and Michael were very helpful and answered every question we had with speed and accuracy. Also, we felt very safe with the building and parking lot guards. One guard at the parking gate in particular was very kind and took to greeting us each time we came. We felt like residents! This was truly a highlight of our trip. Thank you for helping us make these memories. We highly recommend this VRBO! We would love to return.
