They though of Everything that you may ever need foe the beach, which is right out the door. Towels, bags, cart, coolers, snorkel, body boards, a freaking kayak, etc., etc. I really can't say enough good things about this condo. We were the only ones there for a couple days. The beds are comfortable, the place is clean more than enough room for my family of four. It is a quick drive to the kiosks where we ate several times. The road to get to the condo can be a pain at certain hours of the day, but when you are stopping for other cars, just look out the window at the ocean. Everything worked ie WiFi, cable, no power outages, etc. It really is a great place to stay and the owners were very communicative and pleasant as well. Thanks!
What you see in the pictures is what you get. The condo was also very clean. The place is showing a little wear but overall it is well maintained. The furniture is OK but you do not spend all that much time inside. The best part is the view. Anytime you want you can look out over the ocean. The beach is great and close but there is no swimming right off the condo. Kids can sit and play near shore in shallow water which they can't do at most beaches. This is not a resort. There are no activities and you are at the end of the road. Basic shopping though is very close. If you want a quiet vacation then this is it. If you want activities you can do that as well but you will have to travel so you absolutely need a car. There are lots of beach chairs as well as a couple of coolers and snorkel equipment. My only knock is the dishes. There were only 5 dinner plates and there were not more than 2 glasses the same. The knives were the dullest I have seen. This would not stop me from going back though.
If you are wondering about how the island has recovered after the hurricanes, don't worry about it. Absolutely, you can still see damage but it will not affect your vacation much at all. I did not see any businesses that were not open. Two of the government run beaches nearby were not operating. Clean up was still in process. You could still access the beach, which we did, but the lifeguard stands were not manned. Bonus was it was not crowded as there were less than 20 people on this large beach.
Pictures are accurate. The condo was very clean. Frankie and Dorisa are very pleasant. We were surprised not to see any mosquitoes. The ocean breeze is lovely. As stated in previous reviews the condo is well equipped. The electricity went out 3 times while we were there. We didn't quite understand why as there was electricity just a few blocks away. Twice it went out during the day for a couple hours. And once overnight. There is an grocery store close by with a good selection. The Wal-Mart Super Center north of Rio Grande also has a good selection. We ate at Terruno at the kiosk and it was excellent. The Church's Chicken in Fajardo is also excellent. The condo complex is very quiet. For staying in Liquillo, this is the best place to stay.
Dear Don, thank you for your review and recommending our beachfront home as “the best place to stay in Luquillo”. We are glad you enjoyed your first visit to Puerto Rico, our culinary recommendations and chose us as your marriage anniversary destination. Sorry for the electricity outages. The entire island’s power grid is undergoing a major rebuild after catastrophic damages from historic back-to-back category 5 Hurricanes Irma and María last September and October of 2017. Work crews do shut down electricity from time to time to perform necessary repair work. You’ll be happy to know electricity is back to normal since your February visit and traveler attractions are 100% restored. Hope you make Puerto Rico and our beach home your new anniversary celebration destination! Frankie & Dorisa
Great Property, quiet ocean front, attentive owners
This is a very nice property. My wife, mom, and adult sons all really liked it. The lodging was clean, well organized and a very comfortable place to stay. The quiet beach was just outside of the walled community. You are close to all that Southeast PR has to offer. We enjoyed plenty of activities in the area and recommend the region.
The town has a local feel to it (which we liked) but may not be for everyone. Plenty of beach swimming about a mile south. Not much swimming right outside the property. The town itself is nice but there remains some damaged properties for past hurricanes (we were told).
If you do barbecue carefully follow the cleanup agreement.
This is a nice place.
Fantastic stay in Luquillo
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this beautiful condo. The owners had provided everything we needed and more. Plenty of beach towels, sand toys, chairs, and snorkel equipment. The condo is well maintained, you can tell that the owners take pride in providing a neat and clean place to stay. The view from the back patio can't be beat. Reading on the hammock was pure heaven. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Erin, thank you for your review. We try our absolute best to maintain our beachfront home and provide Guests with the best experience possible. Hope to welcome you all again soon. Frankie & Dorisa
Loved Everything About this Condo!
We were met upon arrival by Dorisa and Frankie who went through the whole condo with us. The pictures are exactly as shown on the site. There were many things available to us during our stay: beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, ice chests, snorkel equipment and a Kayak. The kitchen was well stocked! A/C in the bedrooms and comfortable beds made for a great nights sleep. We felt very safe in the area and loved being away from the city! The condo is close to a public beach and several people walked over to where we were but for the most part we saw few people. We were a 5 minute drive from the Kiosks and went twice during our stay. I would definitely stay again and will recommend this property to friends and family! Thanks for a wonderful stay Frankie and Dorisa! ( and your recommendations were always perfect!)
Dear Colette, thank you for your review and recommending our beachfront home to your friends and family. We are happy your family enjoyed staying with us and our recommendations on what to experience when traveling to Puerto Rico. Thank you for choosing us to help you get away from the city and your unique New Orleans to get to know our enchanted island. Hope to welcome your beautiful family again soon. Frankie & Dorisa
