Property description

Welcome to Casa de Helene, THE 1,800 sq^2 LUXEROUS BEACHFRONT OCEANFRONT PENTHOUSE SUITE on the 22nd floor of Building III of Playa Azul on the world famous Luquillo Beach in Luquillo Puerto Rico. This penthouse condominium is one of the largest & finest in all of no-passport-needed Puerto Rico. It has 3 bedrooms & 3 full bathrooms including 2 master bedrooms w/full bathrooms & walk-in closets, & a 3rd bedroom & adjoining 3rd full bathroom. It also has a 30 ft. balcony with a spectacular panoramic, breathtaking view of the ocean & surrounding beaches. It is reasonably priced for up to 6 persons of a family, couples, or singles.

The Penthouse has year-round weather in the 70's & 80's. It has a golden, sandy beach with warm 80+ degree clear & clean water with coral reefs & tropical fish. Swim, surf, & sunbathe. You also have a tropical mountain rainforest above the beach with cool wading waterfalls surrounded by orchids.

If you want lots of space, & are tired of small, cramped, beach condos, this is your dream vacation home!

It also has FREE LONG-DISTANCE TELEPHONE calling to ANYWHERE IN PUERTO RICO and ANYWHERE IN THE CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES.

This condominium is located between the Westin Rio Mar, Wyndham El Conquistador, & the Trump Gran Milia Resorts & Casinos. They are visible & easily accessible from the condominium for restaurants, casinos, & nightlife. They also have championship 18-hole golf courses. You may enjoy these amenities sans the $500+ per night price for a 400 sq^2 room that is not even waterfront.

The tropical mountain El Yunque Rainforest is a 15-minute drive. The El Faro Lighthouse Museum & adjacent Las Cabezas Nature Reserve (bioluminescent mangrove lagoon) & wooden above ground nature walk are within 15 minutes.

Be sure to go out sailing from Fajardo on the luxurious 50' yacht, the Ketch 'Erin go Bragh' (egbc . net) with our good friend Ingrid, limited to a mixed party of six passengers, with drink & gourmet lunch included, to the small outer islands for great snorkeling.

All the crowded boating/diving excursions of the San Juan resorts come to this part of the island as it is has the best coral reefs, water clarity, & water conditions. This is the beginning of the Caribbean side of the island. There is horseback riding on the beach, & horse racing nearby. There are also great nearby shopping & restaurants.

Everything you want in a tropical vacation is here!

The 3rd bedroom has 2 twin beds that make into a king bed if desired, & is across the hallway from the 3rd full bathroom. The condominium is particularly ideal for families, couples, & responsible single adults.

This Penthouse condominium has a 30 ft. balcony overlooking the ocean & beaches. The balcony is so spacious that it has a sofa & matching chairs that seat 6 people, tables & lamps, & a 4 person breakfast table & chairs.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We are Joanne Brochu of Connecticut and Richard Lord from the metropolitan Washington DC area. This condominium was our mother's and father's (US Army Col.) retirement home. We keep their home, now our home, in as fine a condition as would they, and perhaps better as they would not spend the money as we have on expensive amenities such as four TV’s one of which is a large-screen HD LCD Sony.

Why the Owner Chose Luquillo:
As our mother's and father's (US Army Col.) retirement home, which we were fortunate to inherit, in their memory, we maintain it according to their high standards of excellence.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our home is one of the finest & most spacious condominiums on one of the best beaches in the Caribbean, & is nearby the El Yunque Rainforest and the fantastic bio bay. It is one of only a few 3 bedroom 3 bathroom penthouse suites in all Puerto Rico. The condominium aLso has FREE 10-BIT HIGH-SPEED DIGITAL CABLE INTERNET/E-MAIL access including optional WIRELESS connectivity. It also has FREE LONG-DISTANCE TELEPHONE calling to ANYWHERE IN PUERTO RICO and ANYWHERE IN THE CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES. It also has four televisions including a 46' LCD Sony Full HD 1080P with BlueRay HD DVD player.
