About Jocelyn Pedersen, Owner

I'm a freelance writer and professor. I write extensively for newspapers and magazines and am working on publishing a novel.

Jocelyn Pedersen, Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why Jocelyn Pedersen, Owner chose Luquillo

As a writer, I bought the property to vacation with my children and to have a getaway to write.

What makes this condo unique

The location was perfect due to its proximity to Old San Juan, Bio Bay, El Yunque, Luquillo Beach, Kioskos, Hacienda Carabali, and the San Juan Airport. Zip Lining, trekking El Yunque, horseback riding, and enjoying the secluded beach area are always great fun. The private rooftop terrace is a haven for pure relaxation and solace.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had very eventful 4 days in Puerto Rico. We all loved your condo on the beach. I think the location is just perfect. The tropical forest behind the complex really helps to set the mood. It was both ecstatic and relaxing to wake up every morning and see huge palm brances playing in the wind right from the bedroom.



As I suspected, we could not do everything we wanted in Pueto Rico because of the time crunch, but we still were able to do and see a lot. We went to the beach several times. We ate at the kioskos. We went to Bacardi factory tour and then spent a night in the Old San Juan. And then one night we took a catamaran tour to Vieques and their bioluminiscent bay. This was someting special! Have you done one in Vieques? The reason we went to Vieques instead of Fajardo is because we hard that swimming was no longer allowed in Fajardo bio bay. And we really wanted to experience the sparking water up and close. We are so glad we did! The bio bay in Vieques exceeded all our expectations and then some. This was something special, something magical. It is hard to describe it unless you really get in the water and start swimming in it. This was probably one of the most amazing things we have ever done. Again, words can not describe it. You just need to do it to

understand.



We wish we had more time to explore El Yunque. We went there one morning but the park was closed -- they told us they were cleaning up the trails from branches and debris left after Hurricane Earl. They reopened the park Monday morning and we were able to do one quick trail on Monday, just before leaving Luquillo for airport. (My wife took some awesome pictures of lizards in El Yunque, but her pictures are on another computer. I might send you a few once I transfer them to my computer later on.) We liked El Yunque a lot, too, and I wish we had more time to spend there. Maybe next time :)



Anyway, thanks again for sharing your condo with us. We had such a wonderful time! I think you a have a real gem there!

Very spacious and accommodating. Right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

The property was ideal for an extended family. The beach is beautiful and ankle deep. You can walk to the balneariio along the beach.

The first two nights we had one air conditioner down in one of the bedrooms. Alana was great; she was on top of it and took care of it quickly.

I got more attention from Alana than I've gotten in many hotels I've stayed in.

Worth the stay

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was everything we wanted and MORE! The security, the cleanliness, closeness and amenities were simply amazing! My husband and I took our 3 kids (ages 8yr, 7yr and 8 mos.) and we all LOVED IT! The boys loved walking straight out of the condo and onto the beach. There were boogie boards available, snorkeling gear, sunscreen, towels, a cooler and well, just EVERYTHING! I would HIGHLY recommend this place! We were in PR for 10-11 days and stayed at this condo for 8 and another resort for the rest of our stay in PR. This place was BY FAR SO MUCH BETTER!!!! The hospitality alone was better and the location can NOT be beat! Also, Alana is WONDERFUL and she introduced us to Nelda- AMAZING!!! Nelda is a certified childcare woman on the island. We utilized her services I think 3 times during our stay. Both at the condo and at the Melia. She was FABULOUS!!

Again- This is the PLACE TO BE!!! We love Toes in the Sand Paradise!

Great place for a family vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was amazing! Clean, spacious, stocked with everything you need, and well maintained; plus quiet and convenient to anything you might need or want to do in town. The beach is steps away and perfect. The roof top terrace is huge and has everything you need to hang out, bbq, ect while overlooking the beach. I can't think of anything that would have made it better.

Great Place To Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay and Alana was great with service!

We loved the access to the beach and the view from the terrace makes it all worthwhile. Alana is great about responding to requests. The rooftop is spectacular.

The area is convenient to a lot, Walgreens, Amigos grocery store and the food kiosk are right down the road.

Walmart is a 20 min drive.

Very nice beach area a few mins from the house. There is also a campground/public beach area to the left.

Nice complex

  • 4 of 5

The condo was well equipped with just about everything you would need. You can tell it has some age on it and some things could be updated. The view from the rooftop terrace was outstanding. We had our coffee up there every morning. Alana was wonderful to work with. We would text her with questions about the area and she was very quick to respond back to us. Everybody that we ran into in the complex was very nice and cheerful.
