About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Ocean front

Puerto Rico is rebuilding after hurricane Maria and so is Luquillo and its beautiful beaches! Come stay with us!

Welcome to Casa Caney where you can enjoy the sun and waves on one of the loveliest beaches in Puerto Rico, then come back and relax in our beautiful 9th-floor condominium apartment, with the surf rolling out in front of the balcony.

Named after the traditional homes of Taino Indian Chiefs, our apartment has one bedroom with a queen-size bed, plus a new queen-size sofa-bed in the living room. It has a beautiful, large furnished balcony overlooking the Atlantic, and a well-equipped kitchen with newer appliances and an additional utility sink. Open concept living/dining space, and a breakfast counter with stools. One bathroom, recently updated, with a tub/shower. There is a washer and dryer in the unit as well. Air-conditioning and ceiling fans in both the bedroom and the living room.

NOTE: The island of Puerto Rico was overwhelmingly impacted by the effects of Category 5 Hurricane Maria in late September 2017. Puerto Ricans, relief groups from the Continental US, and volunteers from literally all over the world are hard at work in restoration efforts. While much progress has been made to date, there is still much more to do.

NOTE: The Playa Azul complex experienced hurricane related damage to some of its recreational area (pools, tennis courts, kids playground) and is currently restoring them.

Playa Azul II has direct beach access; you will be only steps away from a beautiful sand beach, perfect for swimming and enjoying a day at the beach. The swimming pool and children's pool (under post-hurricane restoration) for the complex are just in front of the building. There are outside showers, picnic tables, a tennis court (under post-hurricane restoration), a tennis/handball practice wall, basketball courts and a playground (under post-hurricane restoration) just outside your door. The lobby offers wifi, a reading/lending library (honor system), and a ping pong table. Secure (24 hour indoor and outdoor security) and enclosed condominium complex on landscaped grounds, surrounded by a stunning semi-private curving beach. There is ample free parking for guests and visitors.

Located on the northeast coast of the island and a 45 minute drive east of the San Juan airport, Luquillo is famous for its pristine public, private, and semi-private beaches, and is also home to popular seafood kiosks, which offer a delicious variety of local dishes. Luquillo is a beach town, hosting many festivals, surfing competitions, and offers nearby golfing, lounges, and casinos. Puerto Rico's lush El Yunque National Rainforest, with its beautiful waterfalls and trails, is located a short 30 minutes away. The ferries to the islands of Vieques and Culebra are just a 15 minute drive away.

Why Mariana Cruz and Scott MacEachern chose Vilomar

Scott and Mariana love the Playa Azul complex. Mariana has been visiting and staying at the complex on vacations since she was a young girl and introduced Scott to Playa Azul a few years ago. They love it because it has everything one could ask for on a family vacation to the caribbean. Mariana's favorite spot is the furnished porch... She loves enjoying her morning coffee and planning her day while looking out into the ocean. Scott's favorite spot is the cozy living room where he can read, write, and enjoy listening to the ocean waves.

What makes this condo unique

The balcony is really wonderful, with plenty of space for sitting and relaxing for 5-8 people, with the Atlantic right in front of you. If you open the windows across this light-filled apartment and fill the rooms with the ocean breezes, you won't need the air-conditioners at all.

Quaint place with a view.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Caney was perfect for our week in Puerto Rico. The location couldn't be better for exploring nearby beaches, El Yunque and for catching the ferry to Vieques and Culebras. Old San Juan is less than a hour away. The apartment is clean, comfortable and well equipped (beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, basket full of sun block, goggles and sun hats, blender, spices, games, laundry detergent etc). The complex is secure and well kept up. The hosts and their assistant, Jose, are readily accessible via phone or text but we didn't have any problems they needed to address. As advertised the pool on the complex is not yet operational, but this wasn't an issue for us.

Bottom line: perfect place to stay for enjoying NE Puerto Rico.

Finally, if you are asking yourself, "Should I go to Puerto Rico so soon after the hurricanes?" The answer is yes! Electric and water are fine at Casa Caney and in the NE Area. The people, sun, sand, food and water are great. The devastating effects of the hurricane are evident, but there is no doubt that resiliency reigns.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this lovely review! We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay - and it is especially nice to hear what you've said about Puerto Rico more generally. People should definitely come to PR - they won't find a warmer welcome, or nicer people.

Wonderful View

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay. The sound of the ocean can be heard from the balcony, as well as a fantastic view. Was greeted by Jose in the entrance. He gave us some great tips of the area from stores to restaurants. Very clean condo. Had everything you needed for a day at the beach. I would definitely book this place again if I was to return to Puerto Rico.

Well equipped and very relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed last weekend to celebrate my birthday. The apartment is very well organized, clean and well equipped with everything you would need to spend time at the beach. It is also near Los Kioskos de Luquillo were you can go and have a great time. Since Hurricane Maria, I was a bit worried there would be nothing to fun to do. However, the apartment had power, running water, air conditioning and all the amenities you would want! The pool was the only amenity that was not available and is completely understandable due to the situation of the island. My husband and myself are local and having stayed in Mariana's condo for the weekend was a breath of fresh air amidst all the stress post-Maria.

Thanks Mariana!

Beautiful little piece of paradise <3

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about Casa Caney, Scott, Mariana, and Jose! What an incredible experience! This was our first time in Puerto Rico, so we decided to stay someplace close to the things we wanted to do, like hiking in El Yunque and snorkeling off the east islands. The condo was equipped with everything we needed for the perfect vacation. It has all of the cooking utensils you could need, plenty of beach towels, a huge basket of sunscreens and bug spray, in case you forget to bring your own, and sports equipment to play basketball, tennis, etc. in the courtyard. The balcony was beautiful and the complex is right on the beach. Scott and Mariana were very responsive, and Jose, the apartment manager was so helpful when we had questions. I would recommend this condo to anyone, and we would definitely stay there again in the future! We're already dreaming of our next trip to Puerto Rico!

Bonus: The condo is only 45 minutes from San Juan, so it's a perfect day trip, and OHMYGOSH THE FOOD! The restaurants in Luquillo and nearby Fajardo are SPECTACULAR.

My *only* suggestion, and this is SO minor, but I wish there had been a recycling bin/bag in the condo, like near the trash can, because I didn't know that the complex had recycling until the last day and we had already thrown away a bunch of plastic bottles by then.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words - we hope that you'll come again! And a recycling bin is a very good idea indeed: we can certainly include that, plus directions on where to find the bins for the complex.
