Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

Welcome to Casa Caney where you can enjoy the sun and waves on some 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 your 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 Caribbean, 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 renovated, with a tub/shower. There is a washer and drier in the unit as well. Air-conditioning and ceiling fans in both the bedroom and the living room.

Playa Azul II has direct beach access; you will be only steps away from a beautiful sand beach, perfect for swimming and snorkeling. The swimming pool and children's pool for the complex are just in front of the building. There are outside showers, picnic tables, a tennis court, a tennis/handball practice wall, basketball courts and a playground just outside your door. 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.

About Mariana Cruz and Scott MacEachern

Mariana and Scott love to travel as much as they love to host travelers. Scott is an archaeologist who works in Central Africa, and Mariana is in the field of diversity/multicultural education.

Mariana Cruz and Scott MacEachern purchased this condo in 2015

Why Mariana Cruz and Scott MacEachern chose Luquillo

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 Caribbean 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.

The property was very clean, comfortable and had a homey feel to it. My husband and I felt right at home. The facilities were great and everyone was very friendly. Thank you Scott and Mariana for sharing your home with us. Jose the property manager is awesome, thanks Jose for your hospitality and kindness! We hope to be back soon!

When we walked through the door, our jaws dropped.

  • 5 of 5

The view from the condo literally left us breathless. Mariana and Scott, the owners, and Jose, the property manager, leave the condo well-stocked with just about anything you might want. Jose left us a bowl of fresh fruit (mango and bananas), and not only was it a lovely touch, the fruit was delicious! Everything about the place was wonderful and could not have been a better experience for me and my wife. Jose sent several texts to ensure that the place met our expectations and that we were enjoying our stay in Luquillo (it did and we were).

We spent time out on the balcony, listening to and watching the waves crash while we read. We spent a ton of time on the beach, playing around with the boogie board supplied. We even spent some time leaning on the railing of the open hallway, looking at El Yunque.

We loved it there so much that we we're now contemplating buying a condo of our own! In the meantime, though, the next time we head to Puerto Rico, we will DEFINITELY be booking this place again!!!

The very best!

  • 5 of 5

We found this condo exactly what we needed for our 4 week stay. Returning every evening from island sightseeing felt like coming home. I would recommend this location to anyone for short or long stays. You won't be disappointed.

The security is a big plus. The guards watch everything and we felt our car and us were well protected. There are no noise and loud music issues. The evenings are very peaceful. I can't say this about other island hotels.

Thank you Scott, Marianna, and Mr. Cruz for the enjoyable retirement vacation!

Beautiful place with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The setting and accomodations are better than any hotel, we had a wonderful time at Play Azul. Scott and Mariana were excellent hosts, even setting out a basket of fruit for our arrival... we highly recommend!

Awesome apartment with a stunning ocean view

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Scott and Mariana's apartment on the 9th floor of Playa Azul II in Luquillo. The view from the balcony was so gorgeous that we made sure to have our "happy hour" there every afternoon after a day of hiking at El Yunque or lying on the beach. The kitchen was well stocked and the washer/dryer was very helpful. Everything you need for the beach was furnished, including beach towels, chairs and even a cooler. We even played tennis with the rackets and balls provided. When we return to Puerto Rico we definitely would return to this apartment!
