Wonderful Escape!

  • 5 of 5

The best way to describe our experience is:

My wife & kids didn't want to leave! And to be honest so did I!!!

The apartment was great with all the comfort and necessities a family needs. The complex is clean and kids friendly. The beach is tranquil, relaxing and clean. The area is quiet and safe.

Walmart, Walgreens and Amigo supermarket our near by.

The apartment is near great eco-attractions: El Yunque Rainforest (La Mina Falls is must), bio-bay, zip lining, horseback riding and many more which we did not have enough time to do.

The Luquillo Kiosks is a must do for dining. Highly recommend Terruno. Order the chuleta kan kan. You will not be disappointed.

Old San Juan is about a 40 to 45 minute drive but it is an easy drive. We did Old San Juan multiple times during our week stay.

The owners, Heidi and Eduardo, are wonderful, helpful and accessible.

We will definitely return in the future.

I spent the last week with four friends in this beautiful property. I must say that the pictures and descriptions don’t do justice to this wonderful location. The apartment is located literally a few steps away from the beach! This is an untouched beach with refreshing and crystal clear water. The sand is soft on your feet that you can’t help but go for miles-long walks every day. Most of the time, all you can hear are the palms swaying, birds chirping and waves crashing against the reef. Luqillo Beach offers many water sports activities, including paddle boarding, kayaking and windsurfing.

The apartment is beautiful and very well kept. It has all of the amenities described to make your stay very comfortable. The owners (Heidi and Eduardo) took care of every detail to ensure a smooth arrival and entrance to the property. Judith, the apartment attendant was very welcoming and helpful. We also felt very safe, as the property is very secured.

El Yunque National Park is only minutes away, where we enjoyed an amazing zip lining experience, as well as a hike to two waterfalls. Within a 20 minute drive, you can enjoy a bioluminescent bay kayaking tour (a must try!). About 1.7 miles away are the Kiosks offering many restaurant choices. Our favorite was La Parilla. Probably the tastiest and freshest seafood I’ve had in a long time.

Special thanks to Heidi and Eduardo!!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This property has a wonderful location--the closest possible place to stay to the east of the main Luquillo beach, one of my all time favorite beaches anywhere. We enjoyed walking west along the water for 15 minutes or so each morning to get to the main beach, and for a half hour east in the evening to walk along the town beaches. The condominium complex is pretty and well maintained and its beach would be perfect for small children. The first floor unit is in the back of the complex, with a restricted view of the water. We found that we couldn't take advantage of even those views, as there were biting insects on the front and back patios at times, that even my repellent could not repel. It is quiet at night, except for the coquis, of course!

The owner was very helpful on the phone and we felt welcomed. On the plus side, the unit was clean, and roomy and well-equipped. We appreciated the Puerto Rican coffee and filters left for us, as well as laundry detergent and a hair dryer--very thoughtful. Lots of beach toys for children. The A/C units are only in the bedrooms, with fans in the main living room and kitchen. Sometimes those rooms were rather warm in the evenings. It is a small thing, but I would recommend another lamp in the living room, as the overhead light and small reading lamp are not enough for two people to be able to read. The hot water heater is small, so we had to be careful of how much we used. Restaurant recommendations: Pasion por el fogon**** in Fajardo, Lolita's along the highway to Fajardo, and Pasta y Pueblo and the Brass Cactus in Luqillo.

Yes, a Very Nice Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year to stay here in this apartment. It was very easy and comfortable knowing that everything was arranged and all the amenities of home are there. The apartment is very clean and both the front and rear patios have scenic views and are very relaxing. The local grocery stores have good seafood for grilling and lots of local and US fruits and vegs. The courtyard opens up to the beach, so you're instantly there on the beach which stretches out in one direction along the mangroves(tropical beautiful) to the state park beach - perfect for swimming (and also the famous food kiosks)...and in the other direction past a few fishermen to body surfing and then board surfing beaches, a great variety of scenery and activities. We also went to Las Cabezas natural reserve for a 2 hr tour and kayaking at Las Croabas (1/2 hr drive), and again to El Yunque and took a different path to the waterfall this time. Also went to old San Juan. Our stay in Luquillo was perfect for a really enjoyable and interesting couple of weeks again.

We have had excellent communications with Heidi and Eduardo, they are really helpful and reliable.

Nice apartment, amazing beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family, 2 adults and 3 kids (2, 11 and 13) came here for a Christmas week. The apartment is very nice and clean. The patio with the hammock was the top hit -- the kids were fighting for it. The beach is amazing, very few people, very clean. Just a few steps away from the apartment -- nice and shallow, good for the youngest. And a couple of minutes away great waves for the teens.

As far as the food goes, Eric's Giros is simply great. Not exactly cheap, but the food is delicious.

Heidi was also very helpful.

All in all, if we go again, we'll go to this place.

Very Nice Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this very clean, spacious modern apartment for 2 weeks. We cooked in the large kitchen and also on the BBQ in the back patio. The kitchen has everything you can think of, and there were all kinds of beach items (boogie board etc etc) and beach towels. The courtyard and bldgs create a beautiful tropical atmosphere, and there are outdoor showers with naturally warm water to rinse off the sand and salt water. The beach in front of the apartments extends a mile or more in both directions. To the west, you walk along palms and mangroves for 10 min. to a state park beach with calm water. We also rented kayaks, $10 hr. there. To the east, it's a 5 min walk to a good body surfing beach. We also practiced snorkeling in front of the apartment and saw small fish and even some lobsters. There are large stores and restaurants 5 -10 min. drive. The San Juan airport is 30 min. drive - we rented a car from there. It's about 15 min. drive to Yunque rainforest - we did a 30 min. walk to a waterfall where you can get cooled off. The Ceiba airport is about 30 min. drive, south of Fajardo, where we flew on a Vieques Air Link plane, $44 each way, to Culebra island to snorkel. It was very easy to communicate with Heidi and Eduardo via email and phone, and the contract with all the details was clear and direct. A very nice place for relaxation and lots of activities, and really good people for making the arrangements!
