Guestbook comments from the owner

Review as written guests from Italy

Siamo stati 4 giorni a Luquillo e il ns soggiorno è stato perfetto!

Il paese è piccolino, molto carino, la spiaggia è bella anche se quella vicino all'appartamento non è tenuta molto bene è un po' sporca e abbandonata e il mare molto agitato con onde alte, ma se si cammina per circa 15 minuti si arriva ad una spiaggia stupenda pulita con mare calmo e trasparente.

Per mangiare vi consiglio il BoardRiders @ La Pared, dove potrete gustare un ottimo hamburger, sorseggiare una birretta o un delizioso margarita!

L'appartamento è dotato di tutto, anche se alla fine abbiamo solo dormito perchè per mangiare siamo sempre andati al ristorante ...

L'unico consiglio che vorrei dare al proprietario John è di sistemare la tapparella esterna perchè nei giorni in cui abbiamo soggiornato noi c'era molto vento e di notte la tapparella sbatteva in continuazione e faceva un rumore abbastanza forte.

X il resto tutto ok!

A presto!

Great value, great beaches, great location.

  • 5 of 5

I will confirm the other good reviews. Clean studio with all the amenities. I was there for the beaches and Loquillo has a wonderful long stretch ranging from calm to big surf. A great value and would stay again in a heartbeat.

Great affordable stay in PR

  • 5 of 5

John Manuel's condo is very nicely located in Luquillo, close to the beach, nice restaurants (Boardrider's, Pasta y Pueblo, and Brass Cactus right in the building), the kioskos (5min drive), the rainforest (15 min drive), and Fajardo (20-25min drive), San Juan and the airport (45min drive).

The beach close by is primarily a surfer's beach with lots of waves and no amenities, but decent nonetheless. The one a little further away - 2-3min drive or a 10-15min walk - Balneario la Monserrate - is a relatively clean, well taken care of, and nice to spend a day at public beach with amenities, bar with great pina coladas, etc.

The condo was well stocked for our stay with supplies, as well as beach chairs, towels, etc. which made things all the more enjoyable.

A few things worth mentioning:

1) there is no wi-fi in the apartment - wasn't an issue for me as I just used the internet on my phone;

2) the insulation in the condo is not great - you can hear noise from the street pretty regularly (although it generally didn't bother us) and there is a pretty noisy bar nearby that is generally tolerable on most nights, but was extremely loud for 3-4 hours and past midnight on Sunday. Could have been the busy Christmas period, but something to be aware of.

3) the general level of cleanliness in the condo (particularly the kitchen and bathroom areas) left a little to be desired...

Overall, a great location, nice stay and good value for the money. I'd come back!

Awesome Location

  • 5 of 5

The condo is located only about one block from the beach, there is a bar and grill in the same building, the Kiosks are only a short drive or long walk away. It was well equipped and quite comfortable for two. Sarah and I were there for a week and we had everything we needed including beach chairs, cooler and a boogie board. John was great as always. (this wasn't my first time here). I will continue to use this condo on future trips, just hope it doesn't take so long to get back! Thanks!

Great condo in a fun neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

It was easy to find and access the property with John's e-mailed instructions. Very clean and well maintained condo just steps from one of the nicest beaches in the area and a hot spot for bar hopping. Very close to el Yunque which provides a variety of fun outdoor activities and only a half hour from San Juan. Highly recommended.

Very good

  • 5 of 5

Very convenient, clean and comfortable. Studio had everything we need for our stay. We prefer to cook ourselves, and there was refrigerator, kitchen stove, coffee maker (BTW, it would be nice to have an electric kettle too); food shops are nearby. As well there are places to eat outdoors - pretty good restaurant Brass Cactus is located in the same building, and there are other places close. Ocean is about 5 min walk from the building, this close place is good for surfing and bathing (large waves). Liquillo public beach with calm waters, perfect for swimming is a 30 min walk along the shore, it is a nice walk; also, one can get there by car - probably 3-5 min drive. The only small inconvenience was weekend evening music from Brass Cactus, it stopped around 11 pm; it was too loud but not too long.

Very economical stay

  • 5 of 5

I totally love Puerto Rico, I go at least once a year. I try to stay at this condo being that it is price reasonably and has all you really need. The apartment feels as if your at home, and the beach is but a block away.... John is very helpful and super nice!!! I recommend it wholeheartedly...
