About the Property

1, 2 or 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps up to 8

Beautiful, three, two or one bedroom, two bath, beachfront condominium with spectacular ocean views sleeps six plus two. The golden sandy beaches of Luquillo are the best on the island. The apartment is ideally located on the NW corner of the 9th floor in desireable Playa Azul 1, close enough to the beach to feel a part of it, and completely private. Relax on the large wraparound balcony facing the ocean. Watch the pelicans and terns soar and feed over the azure water while the occasional frigate bird wings by and the balmy trade winds and the soothing sound of the ocean relax you! It features three bedrooms, two full baths and a living/dining area with cable TV and a DVD/VCR player. The bedrooms have a Queen and two sets of twins. Additional airbeds are provided. The apartment comes fully equipped with dishwasher, washer, dryer and all necessary utensils and linens. Beach chairs and toys for children are available. 24x7 doorman service and a guarded entrance with private parking.


LOCATION & TESTIMONIALS: The complex sits on a large crescent beach with gentle waves with body surfing, sunbathing and strolling as favorite activities. Luquillo public beach is a short walk to the West and an excellent surfing beach and miles of rugged undisturbed coastline are a short walk to the East. White herons and iguanas are often spotted in groves along the beach.

A couple of recent quotes from guests:

'Hello Mark,
I just wanted to thank you for sharing your home in Playz Azul with us. Your apartment was just right for our family. We had a great time in Puerto Rico, especially in Luquillo.'
' Hi Mark I just wanted to let you know we have had a great time in Puerto Rico and thank you for the very useful notes you sent us.' 'Thanks for letting us stay in your great apartment -it really is a home from home, and we would love to come back some day. 'Dear Mark, We are just about to wrap up a fabulous vacation at Luquillo! Thanks so much for sharing your home with us.

ATTRACTIONS: The complex is conveniently located; approximately five miles from the Rain Forest 'El Yunque', one mile to the beach of Luquillo, and Seven Seas Beach, Hacienda Carabali (Offers horseback riding and four-track tours around the Rain Forest), Fajardo's Bioluminescent Bay, and other great places are all within a few minutes drive. It's nearby (twenty minutes) the ferry that goes to Vieques and Culebra Island as well as both the Conquistador and Rio Mar luxury resorts with their dining, entertainment and gambling facilities.

There are 5 beautiful golf courses in the immediate vicinitty as well.

NIGHT LIFE & FACILITIES: RIO MAR and CONQUISTIDOR are a short drive as is PARADISUS. Dancing, ding and gambling are just a few of the attractions.

Inside the complex there are tennis, handball and basketball courts, a large pool (lap swimmers note: this is almost unique in allowing one to swim straight laps-none of the major resorts or other condos have this feature), playgrounds, and a clubhouse. A grocery supermarket, drug store, gas station and several restaurants are within walking distance with many more restaurants, a multiplex theater and major shopping complexes within a 5 mile radius. San Juan is an easy drive away assuring easy sightseeing and attendance at cultural events.

San Juan, less than an hour away, boasts a full cultural life of museums and art galleries as well as numerous concerts throughout the year.

Other Activities: tennis, shopping, kayaking, boating, basketball court

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Diane and I are retired now and spend our winters here in Luquillo. We enjoy it so much that we feel sharing it with others is obligatory rather than keeping it all to ourselves. We are both from the New York area, having spent our lives there including our schooling and careers. We currently live in Radburn, the first planned community in the US and a historic landmark. Our kids are grown and we have a grandchild

Why the Owner Chose Solimar, Luquillo, Puerto Rico:
Our condo provides an ideal vacation spot. We are right on the most beautiful beach in Puert Rico. The condo is extremely comfortable and fully furnished with everything needed for a great time. We came to this area as guests of my cousin, a well known economics professor, and fell in love with it. After several years of renting we purchased his unit when it became available and have been enjoying it ever since. In addition to the superb facilities the buildings are attended 24 X 7 as is the parking area for the complex.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our view on the northwest corner of the 9th floor is superb. The location right on the beach means that that access is right there and the palms on the beach provide natural shade. On premises swimming and sports facilities rival those of the best resorts in the area at home rental prices.
