Luquillo Apartment Rental Photos and Description
3 Beds 2 Full Baths Sleeps 8

Lap in the luxury provided by our 13 floor corner apartment sitting directly upon the beach in Luquillo. No roads to cross to obtain beach access, simply just walk down the steps directly upon our beach. To the left is La Pared one of the hottest surfing spots on the island, to the right is La Selva one of the longest undisturbed/undeveloped coastlines in all of Puerto Rico. This gated twin building complex sits high upon a granite rock towering over the beach whose waves create a wonderful sound as they dissipate upon the sand. On-site is a gym, pool, game room for the kids, gazebo and much more. The complex offers 24 hour security and garaged parking. The unit has been decorated using only the finest furnishings. Of the 3 bedrooms two have KING Beds and the 3rd has a TWIN OVER FULL BUNK bed with a trundle. The bedrooms accommodate 8 people.

Luxury Sleeping Arrangements: The beds are equiped with pillow top mattresses outfitted with 300+ thread count sheets. No, you will not find the plywood stiff mattress and the burlap bag sheets that many of the other condos offer. From the balcony you can look to the left and watch the surfers ride the waves or look to the right and see the Pelicans dive bombing for fish on La Selva’s miles of undeveloped beach.

Luxury Kitchen Described: Looking back over the interior of the island you will see the beautiful. El Yunque rain forest which is only minutes away. This place has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. All the beds, stainless steel appliances, maple cabinets, Corian counter tops, leather couch, leather chairs are all NEW.

!!Great Vacation!!!

What a great place to spend a vacation. It’s been around 10 years since I last visited Puerto Rico. Just as advertised, the condo was spacious, well equipped and very well maintained. We loved the beach and enjoyed our short trips into town for breakfast or lunch. The food and hospitality was wonderful. We were all over the island. We went on a bio bay kayak tour, visited the Rain Forest, went horseback riding, and we went to the Caves of Camuy. Of course we had our own beach which was great. One day we visited all the sites in Old San Juan and came back at night to enjoy the nightlife. I went on vacation with my wife and three kids (19, 21, and 22), if you can call them kids. The kids had the time of their lives… They can’t wait to go back. My wife and I can’t wait to go back and if possible I will be coming back to this condo in Luquillo. THANKS!

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a good time down in PR. I also went to the caves and was amazed at how cool they were. I am heading down in August again and look forward to updating the condo with new items.

We will continue to go the extra mile.

Very convenient location

  • Submitted: Feb 26, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
For the first part of our trip to PR, we were staying in a hotel room in San Juan. For the second part of the trip, we wanted to find a condo that would give us a little more room, a place to eat breakfast in the morning, and other amenities like a washer and dryer. We found everything we needed at Luxury in Luquillo.
Pros: Very affordable and spacious, GORGEOUS view from the balcony, nicely decorated, clean, well stocked with beach toys etc, wi fi worked well, great location for rainforest, beaches, biobay, etc.
Cons: The surrounding neighborhood felt a little run down, but building is gated, and we never felt unsafe. The gate to the beach was not usable while we were there. Again, not a deal breaker. Would recommend for someone looking for a very comfortable, well appointed condo in a great location for exploring PR. Thanks!

Another wonderful vacation in this condo

  • Submitted: Feb 25, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2013
Another wonderful 6.5 week stay in Luquillo. The weather is always consistently gorgeous. This time we experiences the rock slides in sabana an adventure for sure. E spent the day at the beautiful Flamenco beach in Culebra. We even rode horseback at Carabali into the rainforest. We spent two nights in Ponce. Stayed one night in the Melia overlooking the square. WE always enjoy seeing the horses in the square on Friday night. Boardriders continues to be a favorite for people watching and burgers. As usual we experienced body surfing, snorkeling and a wonderful atmosphere. We hope to return.

Seventh time in paradise

This is our seventh time in paradise and it never gets old. In a few short days all of your concerns at home seem to melt away. The condo is in such an excellent place to springboard to adventures. On Saturday we drove to Guavate for a hearty pig roast meal. The weather was terrific.

Quite happy with our stay

  • Submitted: Feb 25, 2014
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
This was our first trip to Puerto Rico and we were quite happy with our stay. We found our way to this lovely apartment and were amazed at the lovely view. The apartment was great and the view is breathtaking. We loved having our own beach. Aside from a few beach walkers we had the whole place to ourselves. There were beach chairs in the closet towels in the bathroom and toilet paper on the shelf. WE ventured out to Walgreens, Walmart, and Pueblo supermarket. We picked up a few staples and groceries we needed for the week. WE followed parts of Mike's itinery which lead us to some great places.
Favorite places to eat Brass Cactus, Bar Gitano in San Juan Tappa's the sangria was wonderful along with the mushroom appetizer.
Mojitos in Old San Juan, Good chicken and pork mofongo. You can dine right on the sidewalk, The service was not very good here.
Pasta and Pueblo wonderful food it is a small shack with 6 tables down the street near the beach. Be prepared to wait we did for 1 hour but it was worth it. The penne pasta in a carbonera sauce topped with salmon was fantastic. You can bring your own wine for a 3 dollar corking fee.
Torro Saleo in old san juan. Good spot to have drinks at the end of your day.

Things to do
La Isla Verde sit at the beach by the Sheraton there is access to a bathroom and to the pool bar.
Culebra take the ferry over 4.50 roundtrip and spend the day at Flamenco Beach. You can rent chairs and an umbrella to sit by this beautiful beach on.
We had a fantastic time and din not want to leave. We said we could have stayed a few more days because there was so much to do.

Apartment needs another set of keys. The place was perfect for us and we had a great time just look out the balcony view how could it be anything other than great. All the reviews hit the hotspots. Favorite food Pasta and Pueblo, Bio Tour was great, El Yungue rainforest hiking, Rincon del Sabor restaurant in Luquillo, Fish tacos from board riders. We had a fantastic time, our group had 2 nine month olds so it was great having such easy access to the beach and pool. We will come back for sure.

Wonderful Time

  • Submitted: Feb 24, 2014
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
What a wonderful time we have been having here. The condo is amazing and the view is uncomparable.
We took a catamaran excursion to Icacos Island with East Island excursions. Our children loved itand learned how to snorkel. The staff was very good and always made sure we were comfortable. El Yunque was amazing. There is a lot of walking to do so wear tennis shoes will not do. We arrived at the waterfall at 4Pm on a Thursday and it was jam packed. Do not bother paying a guide just follow the signs. The kiosks were not for us, not suitable for young children. My single brother had a blast there and went every night. The El Conquistador hotel is fantastic we went at night. There is a starbucks there too. Overall we had an awesome time. My favorite thing in PR is that it is never hot. We are from Texas so temps in the 90s and 80s is heaven.

Great Time

  • Submitted: Feb 24, 2014
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
We had a great time here in PR. We were able to experience the culture and have fun. Things to do.
Kiosks - located right here in Luquillo offer plenty of food, drinks and souvenirs. If you are looking for a strong drink go to number 54.
There are nicer sit down places in the lower numbered kiosks.
Beach - the private beach right in front of Sandy Hills is awesome just you and your family.
Luquillo beach has calmer water and shops nearby.
Cuelbra we heard great things but tried going twice and the line for the tickets was very long and sold out quick.
Must Do
Rainforest it is close by
Eat on the side of the road at a pig roast. Guavate is a small town known for its great food.
Old San Juan you must visit El Morro. Raices is a great restaurant if you want to sit down.
Biobay tours call ahead for reservations.
Horseback riding at Rancho Buena Vista for 35 dollars an hour.

Thanks for sharing

Thanks for sharing your beautiful condo. The condo itself is lovely and comfortable but the best part might be the location with the fantastic view. Close to so many activities.
Our favorites
Hiking in El Yunque. We went early when the park opens and had La Mina falls all to ourselves.
BioBay we took an electric boat with bioisland which we highly recommend. Aside from feeling safer than kayaking in the dark it was very helpful to have a knowledgeable guide in the boat with us.
El Yunke Zipline. Fun and beautiful views but again the guide was the best part.
Swimming at Luquillo beach.
Our favorite places to eat
Kiosk number two was good but pricey.
Kiosk number twenty Turrano had good food, mojitos and music.
La Estacion in Fajardo had very fresh ingredients.
Barbakoa on the way to the rainforest had great food and a nice place to eat after working up an appetite from hiking in the rainforest.
Overall a great trip to PR and Luquillo.
