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.

Very Clean and Equipped. Right across from the beach and walking distance to great food.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our honeymoon in Luquillo and this condo was everything we could've asked for. It came equipped with everything needed for the beach. The complex had great amenities. Not to mention the food in PR is AMAZING. The owners and property manager were very helpful and tended to our needs in a timely fashion. We will definitely be back !! Also it is an easy drive to San Juan, Old San Juan, El Yunque Rainforest, which are other great places to visit. Would definitely rent a car. Not to mention the Kioskos in Luquillo that had great food. Overall it was a great experience for my wife and I and we can't be more happy with our choice to stay here in Luquillo

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.

Mini Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Casa Caney! There were 22 of us traveling from all over the US with our families. Each family stayed at different condos on the property. Everything was close, convenient, clean, safe, and fun. From Jose, the apartment manager checking in to make sure all was well, to Maria and Scott making sure all of the arrangements were in order. I could not have asked for a better place to stay. The amenities were great (beach chairs, beach towels, dishes, etc.) I did not have to worry about bringing unnecessary items on our trip, or purchasing them at the store when we arrived. It was nice to spend all day on the island and come back to rest my head in a comfortable condo. Great view of the beach, pool, and El Yunque. Every one, from security to grounds keepers, were pleasant. Would definitely come back again! Thanks Maria and Scott for letting us stay in your humble abode! Our trip was phenomenal and we will never forget our time on La Isla de Encanta. :0)

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!!!
