Luquillo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Oceanfront Apartment With Pool, Near Golf Courses

Our beachfront getaway is on the 6th floor of Playa Azul I, in the seaside village of Luquillo, located in the northeast coast, northwest of Fajardo; and east of Rio Grande. It is approximately a 30 minute drive from San Juan Airport.

Playa Azul I is part of a gated complex with a swimming pool, and tennis and basketball courts. The front gate and buildings are staffed with security 24/7. The beach is less than a one minute walk! Please note that the beach in front of the condo is not staffed by lifeguards.

The apartment has two bedrooms each with new air conditioners. Bedroom 1 has one queen sized bed and on suite bathroom with walk-in closet. Bedroom 2 is larger and has one king sized bed with an on suite bathroom and walk-in closet. Each bedroom has windows that open overlooking the ocean. Bed linens and towels provided.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a new cooktop, dishes, knives, utensils, and cookware. We also have a washer and a dryer for your convenience.

The living room has a ceiling fan to circulate the ocean breeze to keep things cool. We have an HD TV with a cable and WiFi internet access.

We have a large balcony to enjoy the scenic view. We eat most of our meals outside.

DO NOT LEAVE SMALL CHILDREN UNATTENDED ON THE BALCONY!! They may crawl up on furniture and be in danger. Keep the furniture away from the railing.

You can have a lazy relaxing vacation, active vacation or a combination of both!

About Michael

Michael lives in Minneapolis MN in the freezing cold winters. I love traveling, meeting new people and experiencing other cultures.

Michael purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Michael chose Luquillo

Luquillo is special to my family. We started vacationing here 7 years ago as a family and were 'hooked!' Playa Azul I is on the beach with the scenic views we love.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment has views of both El Yunque Rainforest and the ocean. We feel so relaxed and at home in Playa Azul. We hope you will feel the same!!

Well-equipped apartment and close to everything.

  • 4 of 5

My family and I were pleased with this apartment. Our family of six, four kids ages eleven to twenty, loved the access to the beach, the pool, the proximity to El Yunque, grocery store and for them, the galore of tv channels and wifi. We were here at the end of July, and though it was very humid and hot, the air conditioners and fans helped a ton. The balcony was a lovely place to sit and enjoy the ocean, especially having the hammock to rock and listen to the waves. The kids even slept outside. The beach is a family friendly and safe place to soak up the sun and play in the water. Thanks for the boogie boards, the kids had a blast with them. We would definitely come back here, thanks for letting us use your home.

Breathtaking view and ocean breeze!!

  • 5 of 5

This 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment was a great pick. My husband, dad and I enjoyed our 3 night stay here. The waves in the beach directly across were rough so instead we went to the calmer side of the beach in back of the Luquillo kiosk which is a 2 minute car ride. We also enjoyed a day at the pool and exploring. If you want to eat a real good dinner Kiosk #2 La Parilla best seafood ever. El yunque was also a beautiful place to visit. If we were to visit Luquillo again I will definitely rent this apt again (BTW This building Playa Azul I is the closest to the water front view). The morning view, night breeze, along with the hammock were the best part of this trip and well worth it!!

Very secure around the property. Beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

This property met our expectations. The two bedrooms were roomy and the balcony was so big. Everyday there was a breeze that kept us cool. We were there the month of July and it was not uncomfortable at all sitting on the balcony. Constant breeze. The view was spectacular and we loved the hammock. We will be back!!

Beautiful views, comfortable living

  • 4 of 5

Michael's unit was reasonably appointed, and included incredible views of the beach below. Proximity to the beach was perfect. Michael provided very good communication leading up the stay, as well. Unit includes amenities such as beach towels and chairs. One of our favorite inclusions was the hammock on the balcony. Only real "complaint" (too strong a term, really) was that a second set of keys wasn't provided; results in your group having to coordinate activities very closely, due to security on condo's campus (multiple levels of keyed access required to even go to pool). Overall, though, very nice unit at a very reasonable rate, and very good ownership communication.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property last year. We woke up every morning and enjoyed breakfast and coffee on the balcony overlooking the palm trees and ocean. At night we also enjoyed listening to the waves and feeling the ocean breeze, so relaxing! The property was clean and well maintained (as pictured) and the owner was very responsive. The rainforest, kioskos, and beach were all minutes away. We are thankful the owner opened his home to us and would recommend it to anyone!
