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.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely condo in Luquillo very much! With ocean views from the balcony and mountain views from the front of the building, it was perfect. The location was very good: easy beach access, close to El Yunque, restaurants, the biobay tour, and shopping.The condo itself was very clean and was the best equipped condo we have ever stayed at. There were beach towels, a cooler, beach chairs, all that is needed to enjoy a stay at the beach but that we couldn't fit in our suitcases! We also appreciated the ease of getting the keys and the welcoming bowl of fruit when we arrived. Many thanks to the owners for a fantastic vacation in Puerto Rico! We will be back!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Casa Caney truly made our trip! It was cute, clean, and the location was perfect! It was so wonderful just being right there on the beach and it made it so much easier for us since we have a baby! Besides that, they provided everything we needed for the beach which made things even easier for us. The owners are so nice and helpful and got back to us so quickly with more than efficient answers to any concerns or questions we had. When looking for a place to stay in Puerto Rico before our trip we came across Casa Caney and I was surprised by how GREAT it was rated, but now I see why!! We will absolutely be staying here again in the future when we come back to Puerto Rico! Thank you Scott and Mariana for allowing us to make your apartment our home for a week, we LOVED it!

BEST RELAXING VACATION EVER

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is that LuQuillo and this location is the BEST spot ever on the island. The balcony view for me was one of the BEST features that we all enjoyed. Having a short walk to the beach and than back to the pool again, what more can one ask for on a relaxing vacation. The Kiosks were also one of my FAVE places go and hang out, enjoy island treats, and of course enjoy the cocktails. I would totally recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice relaxing vacation. People, Location, View, Puerto Rick was worth it's weight in GOLD and I will totally stay in the same spot again!!! Loved Loved Loved

Casa Caney was PERFECT! Better than a resort

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time in Puerto Rico, and by far the best! Jose the apartment manager was in touch with me the whole time, even when our flight was delayed for several hours he patiently waited for us to arrive past midnight. He was very nice and made sure we had everything we needed. Once we arrived to Casa Caney we were impressed. The security and staff were great. Casa Caney was just BEAUTIFUL, clean and had absolutely everything we could possibly need and more.We were traveling with our 2 kids age 6 and 2, they had beach toys, fresh fruit, and many other things that made our stay here perfect. The cooler, beach umbrella and towels is a huge plus. We will definitely book Casa Caney again. Thank you to the owners and the rest of the team for making our stay so pleasant. You really did think of everything we could possibly need or use.

Thank you

"Casa Caney" - Luquillo, PR - Balcony views like a picture postcard!

  • 5 of 5

We were so fortunate to have picked "Casa Caney" as our first visit to the lovely island of Puerto Rico. Views from the balcony are breathtaking - like that off a picture postcard. All necessities are close by. Drug store and grocery store are just across the highway, and several excellent eateries are within walking distance. Very quiet and peaceful neighborhood. Very friendly and helpful on-site facility staff. The apartment manager Jose' was never more than just a phone call or text away, and catered to our every need without question. In our many years of vacationing, we've never had a better overall experience than we've had here at "Casa Caney".

Owners Mariana and Scott went over and above our wildest expectations to ensure our entire vacation was a positive memorable experience, not just the accommodations themselves. The apartment is well furnished and adorned, with everything you could possible want (and then some). We walked into the beautiful apartment to find all kinds of fresh fruits, and cold drinks in the fridge. The place was meticulously clean and thoroughly exceeded our expectations, as did our hosts Scott and Mariana. Restaurant and activity recommendations from our hosts and apartment manager were spot-on. Our only disappointment (no reflection on our hosts) was that the lovely pool closes every day at 7pm. Would liked to have see it open later, but when you realize this is an up-scale residential community (not a tourist trap resort) one can understand why. We sincerely look forward to our next vacation stay at "Casa Caney".
