Property description

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 linen for all beds and towels are Egyptian high-end cotton.

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!
