Solimar Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Newly remodeled one-bedroom steps away from the ocean

Recently remodeled 1 bedroom apartment with balcony and ocean view. In addition to a queen bed in the bedroom, there are two futons in the living room. A 15 minute drive to the Caribbean national forest and walking distance to Luquillo beach, surfing spots and a ten-mile-wide deserted beach to the east. Neighboring town of Fajardo offers scuba//snorkeling day trips, sailboat and fishing boat charters as well as ferries to beautiful Vieques and Culebra islands.

If you want to do sightseeing outside of San Juan, a car is almost an absolute necessity in Puerto Rico. However, if your plan involves morning coffee with a view, the beach, books, good food and company, it is possible to do without one. All within walking distance from the apartment you will find other beaches, a supermarket, a pharmacy, restaurants, bars, laundry, churches, doctors and other services. The village of Luquillo is also within walking distance. Taxi to the apartment costs about $65.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair accessible

About Wandy Rodriguez

I am a resident of San Juan, where families like to get away from it all to the 'country-side' on the weekends and summer months. We bought this place when my children were young and now we share it with others through Home Away/VRBO.

Wandy Rodriguez purchased this apartment in 1975

Why Wandy Rodriguez chose Luquillo

The view and the fact that it is close to San Juan and in the eastern part of the island, close to El Yunque rain forest and all sorts of beach and ocean activities in nearby Fajardo.

What makes this apartment unique

From the front door you can see the rain forest in the distance and from anywhere in the apartment the wide blue sea. Going to sleep to the sound of the ocean breeze and waves is an unforgettable sensory experience.

Amazing views and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at this condo and were amazed by the views from the balcony and front door. Standing on the balcony you were looking out at the beautiful turquoise water of the Caribbean and looking out the front door you had an amazing view of the rain forest. There were excellent restaurants within walking distance. The beach was just across the street and was never crowded. The seas could be a little rough but within a short walk there was an area that was much calmer. The only thing I would suggest to the condo owner is to upgrade the mattress. The bed was uncomfortable so we took one of the mattresses from the futon and placed it on top of the mattress, that made it more bearable. The condo had everything needed to make for an enjoyable vacation.

Beautiful view, excellent value!

  • 4 of 5

This was our fourth VRBO rental in Puerto Rico and it was the best value. The location is fantastic, the views amazing. Although we have not found security to be an issue on our visits, this complex was the most secure one we have been in. Gated parking is monitored 24/7, and there is usually a lobby receptionist as well in each building. The three building complex has a nice pool, tennis, handball and basketball courts. Wandy's condo is in the building closest to the beach with locking gate access out the front towards the beach. This condo is very easy to find also. We arrived to find a clean safe condo with milk, coffee and snacks waiting for us. Furnishings are not luxurious but very functional. There are restaurants within walking distance and we felt comfortable walking around anytime of day. Beach chairs, floats, and coolers are provided. There is not a washer and dryer but that was not an issue for us. The value was excellent, the location was beautiful and close to the area attractions, and we would rent this place again.

Perfect location right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This review takes into account the price of the unit and the fact that we were there in October, which is the slow season. This area did not have a typical touristy feel, more of a local beach area( not the big hotel/resort style area). The views from the balcony were magnificent. Once we were in the condo I don't think we had the balcony doors closed again. The front door views out over the rain forest and there is a lockable gate door, so with the main door open and the balcony doors open you had a breeze coming through the place and great views on either side. The beach right behind the unit was never busy and all but one day the waves were small enough to just float around. (A short walk down the beach and there was an area that was always calm waves). The furniture is nothing fancy but everything was comfortable (we were always on the balcony anyway). There were supplies for the beach (chairs, snorkels, toys, floats), the kitchen was well stocked (no stove but there is a big toaster oven, plenty of pots/pans, utensils, blender), books and movies for entertainment. The unit is 2 minutes to the surfing beach "La Pared" where there were cheap board rentals and 2 minutes the other way to the kiosks where you can sample local food (or pizza, burgers, etc). Hiking in the rain forest is only 15 minutes away. Easy access to the Fajardo Ferry where we took a great day trip to Culebra (Flamenco beach was the best we've ever been to and it was a cheap day).

To summarize the place was clean, right on the beach, with the doors open you always had the sounds of the ocean, perfect location for the ferry, rain forest, and beaches.

Wandy was great answering the few questions we had and even had coffee, creamer, sugar, and a pastry waiting for us. Thanks Wandy we'll be back!

Clean, good location

  • 4 of 5

This was my first rental. Owner was very responsive to all of my inquiries and questions. Nice condo, was exactly as described. Myself, husband and 2 teen boys stayed for a week. A little small for the 4 of us, but we also packed too much. Off the tourist path, good security tho we didn't feel unsafe. Not far from rain forest or ferry docks or San Juan. Had a blast and can't wait to go back.

Oceanfront property located within a 15 minute drive to the caribbean national forest of el yunque. It is within walking distance to the tranquil waters of luquillo beach to the west, the surfing spot of la pared to the east, and a ten mile stretch of deserted beach further east. In the town of Fajardo many amenities await. These include kayaking in a bioluminescent bay, the las cabezas nature reserve and spending the day in icacos cay, scuba and snorkeling daytrips as well as sailboat and fishing charters are available. Daytrips to the gorgeous islands of culebra and vieques are a possibility through a scheduled ferry, although more time to explore them is well recommended.
