Overview

About the property

The ideal place to relax in the tropics!

Great beachfront, ocean-view apartment for rent in Luquillo, in the Northeast of the island. Luquillo is a 40 minute drive East from San Juan, 15 min. to El Yunque rainforest, 15 min. to Fajardo - with access to ferries and flights to the islands of Vieques & Culebra. (Fajardo & Vieques are home to two of the world's best bioluminiscent bays!)

Our family-owned apartment looks out over one of Puerto Rico's nicest beaches.

One bedroom, with a large living room (with cable TV, DVD, stereo, and wireless internet), and fully-equipped kitchen (stove, fridge, microwave, & toaster oven), and bathroom. It's on the 2nd storey in a small building, with private parking, and a private balcony overlooking the beach. Plenty of shopping and restaurants in the area.

There is sleeping space for 4 (sofa bed in the living room) .

This is not a business – we rent the apartment to help pay the mortgage. We are looking for respectful, responsible short-term renters.

Why Adam Arnold/Nilsa Medina chose Luquillo

We looked for an apartment in Luquillo every time we went to the beach there. We finally found and fell in love with this gem.

The ONLY place to stay in Luquillo! Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here, two adults and two toddlers (1 and 3). This was our first time in Puerto Rico. Our priority was to have a safe location with an ocean view and walking distance from the beach. In addition we wanted to have a place with all the amenities since we have two small children. This apartment delivered on everything we needed. It is safe, has a private gated entrance and is on the second floor. It has a full view of the ocean. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the mornings, welcoming the sunrise. Incredible! The breeze coming from the water is unbelievable and you can hear the sound of the waves from every area in the apartment (even in the bedroom that's on the other side). The beach is literally across the street from the apartment. The waves can be quite big for the little ones but if you walk to the left (north), it'll be a lot calmer as the waves will crash into the reef first and then to the shore. Speaking of the reef- fun place to snorkel (snorkel gear is included). It had all the amenities we needed- stove to cook on, washing machine and a dryer. Bathtub for the kids. Blender to make fresh smoothies (bring your own beach toys for little kids, shovels, buckets etc.)

I think it's important to note that it does face a busy street, therefore you will be exposed to normal Puerto Rican beach crowds and the noise level that comes with it (including the cars that like to blast very loud music. However, it generally quiets down after 7 pm or so). Also, if healthful/organic food is important for you and you're traveling with kids, definitely pack as much of it as you can and bring your own. We were so grateful for having checked a large cooler packed with food for the week. It is not easy to find fresh and organic food in Luquillo (aside from a pricy restaurant that sells local fish and a small roadside fruit stand that sells delicious mangos and avocados -$3/each).

Lastly but most importantly, Nilsa (the landlord) is absolutely incredible! She answered the phone every time we called with a question and always offered advice and had great suggestions. She is simply fantastic! She even escorted us to the airport for our return flight (5am!!!). Helped us return our rental car and literally pulled our suitcases to the Southwest counter!!! She is very accommodating, excellent at communicating with the tenants, so kind and so warm. She single handedly made our vacation! She's the reason we will be returning to Puerto Rico! Thank you Nilsa!

Sounds of the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for weekend getaways with all the amenities of home. Beach is just steps away from the location and allows a great view of the beach and evening sunsets. Equipped with two bicycles if you feel to take a ride along the ocean park driving lanes and also includes plenty of beach gear. I particularly liked waking up to the vista from the Living room area. Sounds of the Ocean 24 hours who could ask for anything more relaxing? Our host was very gracious and extremely helpful, I was able to book immediately without any delays. Would definitely recommend this place for couples looking to catch up on some rest and relaxation or a nice hike through the yoonque rainforest just minutes away. Nilsa I'll be back next year if not sooner!!!

Thanks again for making my stay memorable.

Best Regards,

Dan

Great Beach Spot and Stay

  • 5 of 5

First off, Nilsa is a top notch hostess. From start to fish she made our trip easy and hassle free. We arrived to stay here for a week with a little uneasiness since we have never been to PR before. Nilsa answered every singe question we had and never failed to call us back with an answer. This place is accommodated with everything a beach vacation would need including beach gear, ubrellas, chairs, snorkel gear, sunscreen and more. Now it is obvious that this is her place and she treats it very well. The local area has lots to offer in, we enjoyed Aromas, Boardrunner and the brass cactus while staying here. The beach is very calm the further north you walk, and is often unoccupied. For anyone who is looking for a nice beach spot within an hour from San Juan then this is your place. Book it and stop thinking about it!

Waiting for my price adjustment for two months!!!!

  • 1 of 5

I was not going to submit a review but after two months of non stop emails to Nilsa, she left me no choice. My husband and I are not pleased with the response from her. The day I left the condo she was going to mail me my adjustment. Two months later, no money. This is the first time we deal with an irresponsible person. I will never rent from her again or stay in this area, we will stick to Condado which has better business owners. This apartment needed to be spotless, the bedroom fan had so much dust that it would hang when turned on. Shame on you for saying this is clean, under the bed you never mopped it, it was full of dust. We checked it after you left. Everyone who is writing good reviews must be blind, a white glove test would show you how dirty it really is. We were not happy with this condo due to the flith!!!!!!!! This owner should and want a guest to be happy and send us own money once and for all.

Great place Great value

  • 5 of 5

Nilsa was so sweet. I was unsure of procedures with paying. This was the first of three home away properties we used on this vacation in Puerto Rico. Directions and navigation all over PR is very challenging. The apartment was very spacious and a great location. Our best beach front view on our stay. It had plenty of amenities, bedding, towels, ect. This was a wonderful vacation for family of 4 adults and 1 toddler. Consider this location and your family will brag for years like we will.
