Beautiful Views

  • 4 of 5

This penthouse apartment is very nice but a little small, (we were 4 adults) and you do get road noise in the bedrooms as they face the street. The beautiful panoramic views do make up for the size and noise. Checking in was easy at the real estate office around the corner. The neighborhood is ok. We did walk into the lovely little town of Luquillo more then once with no problems. We found a nice little restaurant around the corner that we liked and walked to several times for dinner. Walk into Luquillo or hop in the car and you will find several restaurants to choose from. We enjoyed the beautiful beach right behind the apartment, and the rain forest is an easy 15 - 20 min drive away. If you want to stay outside of Old San Juan on your visit, this is a really nice option.

Best Condo in Playa Azul

  • 5 of 5

This condo is on the 22nd floor in building 1 on the Southwest corner of the building. The windows and doors fold completely back so that the amazing breezes and spectacular views are unobstructed and enjoyed. The sunsets are breathtaking and the sunrises are wonderful as well. The beach is conveniently right out the back with gated doors. The property is gated and secure.

We had the pleasure of meeting Miriam during our visit. She is extremely nice and genuinely wants her guests to have whatever they need to make their stay perfect. I mentioned that the pillows were in need of replacement and she immediately went out and purchased new pillows. She has stocked the apartment with all sorts of beach toys and towels and bags to carry all the gear. The washer and dryer was great! The apartment is well appointed and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped.

We found a special breakfast place in Fajardo called Las Vistas with a roof-top patio and a view of the harbor. Aromas in La Pared is inexpensive and has good breakfast and lunch. Look up the rock slide in El Yunque called Las Pailas, you can park in Carlos' parking lot for $6 and hike down his back yard to a rock side that is fun and unique. There is another fun rock slide and rope swing destination called Charco Frio in Ceiba.

We had a wonderful time in Luquillo. We will be back and definitely stay in Miriam's little corner of Heaven! Thanks Miriam!

A truly excellent vacation home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was everything we wanted and more! You simply can't beat the view - the living room opens right up onto the wrap around balcony giving you gorgeous views of both the exquisite beach right in front, the town and the mountains of El Yunque. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen fairly well stocked with pretty much whatever kitchen utensils you would need and there is a washer/dryer which was great. There are plenty of food options within a 10 minute drive. And, the beach both right in front and close by is excellent. Highly recommended.

Best views, great location, fantastic beach and a great, responsive owner!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend this paradise enough! The balcony doors fold completely open (but lift them as you open them - they stick - and make sure the fan is off!) so you can fully enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views, the refreshing ocean breeze, and the relaxing sounds of the crashing waves. This condo is right on an excellent swimming beach, which had no crowds the whole week. We cooked breakfast in the well-equipped kitchen and enjoyed breakfast sitting out on the balcony every morning - HEAVEN!!!! We were close to everything we needed. 15 minutes from Farjado for the bio bay tour and a boat for a snorkeling adventure in Culebra for a different tour. 10 minutes to El Yunque rainforest. 10 minutes to the kiosks - great variety of delicious food. 10 minutes to El Yunke Zip Line for an exhilarating adventure. And 45 minutes to San Juan. I recommend a car, but the driving is easy - just use your phone for Google Maps directions. There was just my husband and me, so we stayed in the master with the en suite bathroom. The master is very comfortable. There is only A/C in the two bedrooms which keeps those bedrooms nice and cold. The rest of the condo can get warm, but open the balcony doors and the living room, kitchen, and bedroom windows - the cross-breeze is wonderful! The bedrooms only have wooden slats that open and close - no actual windows, so it can get noisy from time to time. It was mostly fine. On the weekends, it was noisy from about 5 p.m. until about 10 or 10:30 p.m. and then it was quiet until about 7:30 a.m. During the week it was pretty quiet from about 9 p.m. until about 7:30 a.m and then quiet again around 8:30 a.m. It didn't bother us much even without ear plugs. We still slept in late almost every morning. The master bath shower has great water pressure, but the drainage is slow, so you can't take super long showers. The other bathroom shower has a lower water pressure but great drainage. The water temperature fluctuates in that shower when someone uses other water sources in the condo. Miriam has most of what you need, but check her supplies. We made trips to the grocery store for laundry detergent, beverages, paper towels, extra toilet paper, cooking spray, etc. - but just check the supplies before you go. If you're sharing the condo, know for privacy that the two bedrooms share a wall. Despite a couple of very minor things, this really is paradise!!! Highly recommended!!!! And the owner, Miriam, is great and very responsive

The Ultimate Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

We wouldn't be able to say enough good things about this place! Our family made such great memories here. The view is spectacular and the PH had everything you could possibly need...beach chairs, boogie board, board games... The guards and securities were friendly and helpful. There's a grocery store across the street and places to eat. We also went to The Kioscos where lots of tourists go to eat. If you're searching for a place to stay, search no more and book this place while it's available...
