About the property

Playa Azul #3 Condo with 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Dulces Suenos translates as Sweet Dreams. Allow the sound of the waves and the song of the Coqui lure you to dreamland here in our oceanfront condo.

Hola! Located in Luquillo, just 35 minutes from the airport in San Juan, this 3 bedroom 2 bath beach front condo has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. The condo is located in Playa Azul, a gated beachfront community, just steps away from Luquillo Beach. Enjoy the beautiful sunrise in the morning, swimming, snorkeling and boogie boarding in the afternoon and rum drinks on the balcony in the evening.

You will have access to a full size pool, kiddie pool, playground equipment, basketball court, tennis court and a nicely stocked on-site library.

When you awake each morning head out to the 11th floor balcony to enjoy a cup of Puerto Rican coffee while watching the gorgeous sunrise and enjoying the soothing sound of the surf on the beach. You can also check in with the “real” world on your laptop with the free high speed WIFI available while watching the wave’s crash on the beach.

The master bedroom boasts a king size bed and attached bathroom with a shower/tub combination. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and the third bedroom has both a queen and a twin bed. The second two rooms share a bathroom- also with a tub/shower. Six guests can be comfortable in this spacious condo.

The unit is fully air conditioned with a ductless unit in the living area and window units in each bedroom. The living room and each bedroom also offer a ceiling fan if you prefer to keep the windows open and just let the salt air and soothing sounds of the beach lull you to sleep each night.

We have a washer and dryer in the condo and also have beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella available.

The condo is well located to enjoy the best of Puerto Rico. We are 20 minutes from El Yunque rainforest and the bio-bay in Fajardo and only 40 minutes from Old San Juan and the historic forts. The local area has several beaches in walking distance as well as restaurants and a grocery store.

About Brandi

Hello,

I am a respiratory therapist for the local critical care transport team. Don is currently retired after 30 years of buying produce.

The love of our life is our sweet little grandaughter. Her parents are pretty special too. Little Miss keeps us busy on our days off from work since we get to spend a lot of time with her.

We love to travel to warm tropical locations especially in the winter to escape the dreary Pacific Northwest weather.

Brandi purchased this condo in 2011

Why Brandi chose Luquillo

I read about the Bio-bays in Puerto Rico and wanted to visit the island so we arranged a vacation and when we arrived we fell in LOVE with the island and the local people.

We previously had traveled to other locations and the locals were not terribly friendly but Puerto Rico was different. We spent our first day walking on Jobos Beach and we were approached by a local who recognized us as tourists (white skin turning red at amazingly fast rates probably was the give-way..LOL) and offered to show us the area while sharing information about both the local area and island in general. This was not an isolated incident, several times we were shown local sites by local people who are proud of their home and want to share it with others.

Puerto Rico is nicknamed the 'Isle of Enchantment' and it truly enchanted both my husband and I.

We are a few years from retirement and we decided to purchase a condo so when we are ready to retire we have it available but since we can only visit 2-3 times each year we thought why not rent it and let others enjoy the warm island of Puerto Rico.

What makes this condo unique

My favorite thing about our condo is the proximity to the beach. I love to be on the sand and in the salt water and falling asleep to the rhythm of the ocean. It is wonderful to have the access with no drive! Just a short walk across beautifully maintained grounds and you are on the sandy beach with reefs to snorkle right there. Listening to the waves crash is very relaxing at night hence the name- Dulces Suenos (Sweet Dreams).

Luquillo is located outside the metro area but has excellent access to the entire island.

El Yunque is a quick 15 minute drive to the trailheads and tourist center.

Fajardo is a 10 minute drive for fishing, snorkeling and scuba charters.

San Juan Metro is a 30 minute drive for shopping, dining and dancing.

Old San Juan is 35 minute drive for all the tourist attractions like El Morro and also many artisan shops.

Come and let Puerto Rico enchant you:)

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed in this apartment for the past five years and have seen the various owners improve the place nicely. There are new windows and doors, and new kitchen with washer and dryer. It is convenient to the pool and beach and town.

Fantastic, relaxing, beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here for a week. The beach is gorgeous and not too crowded, and the condo had everything we could possibly need. Brandi was indispensable for helping us plan our trip. We were sad to leave but so happy to have had this once in a lifetime experience!

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is exactly as it appears online. It was very comfortable for my family and I. The condo was clean and fully equipped with everything we needed! There were beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, beach towels and board games. You are steps away from the beach and pool. The cool breeze on the balcony during the evenings was so refreshing. The gated community is secure and the property was very quiet.

Brandi was very helpful prior to and during our trip. I would definitely stay here again on our next vacation to Puerto Rico! Definitely a 5 star rating!!

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our group. Ideal location for our day trips to El Yunque, San Juan, and snorkeling out of Fajardo. My elementary school kids loved the pool and the beach right there, and the quick drive over to Luquillo beach. Brandi could not have been more attentive or organized, and all the instructions were very clear for accessing and using the condo. Brandi was a LIFESAVER with her quick response and helpfulness when our flight plans changed due to airline issues. Amazing view from the balcony and rooms. Lots of beach gear in the closet. Nothing too fancy for my kids to break (perfect!). Everything was clean. Five star review for sure! We will be return customers in the future!! Thanks!!

Playa Azul III

Great condo and location.  Awesome breeze at night, no need for A/C unless you have kids like us. We had a party of 4, with two toddlers.  The condo had everything you might need, with guide books and detail recommendations.  Great parking and security, loved the smart lock. Is our third time staying in the area and by far this condo is our favorite.   Brandi was on point, great communication and detail instructions. Thank you Brandi! We'll be back again!

PS: Thanks for the coffee!

THE BEST SPOT TO STAY

  • 5 of 5

Extremely impressed with this rental property. The owners have literally one of the best spots on the island and maintain the unit perfectly.

The listing description was spot on with excellent customer service. It was very clean and one of the best vacations I have been on.

It was an ideal unit for my family (parents, husband, children) to stay at with 3beds/2baths. Brandi provided anything beach related we would need and we were there daily. We really appreciated the BINDERS full of suggestions on what to do on the Island with exact GPS coordinates from her condo to each location. This was SO helpful!

Her location was a 40minute drive to all the locations we wanted to see: museums, the rainforest, Old San Juan, different beaches, etc. (because my older dad drives slow) . The highways were in pristine condition so any driving just felt like more sightseeing to us with the gorgeous views.

Can we talk about the views from the condo?? Being able to see the sunrise and the sunset because of their corner condo unit was breathtaking.

Security was excellent with two different check in points (one for the car in a gated parking lot and the other the main desk with 24hr guard). This put our minds to ease with traveling with small kids.

We are already planning on when we can come back and have told all our friends. THIS IS THE PLACE TO STAY, PEOPLE!!! :)

Car: recommended

From Luquillo,Puerto Rico:

~About 20 minutes to El Yunque rainforest.

~About 30 minutes to San Juan -- Old San Juan is well worth a visit.

~Isle Verde and Condado beaches are not nicer than the Playa Azul beach but the tourist crowds make it fun to visit for a day.

~Las Croabas / Fajardo boating area with night trips into the Laguna Grande Bio-Bay. The Bioluminescent bay of Fajardo is a short 10 minute drive from the condo and one of the most amazing natural phenomenons I have ever seen.

~A day trip from Las Croabas to Cayo Icacos is a wonderful beach / snorkeling visit -- the beach is magnificent with crystal clear water on this small coral island. Many group charters will take you there for around $80 per person.

~A ferry trip from Fajardo to Isla Culebra to see the magnificent Playa Flamenco (the ferry was $2 for a one hour trip -- the trip to Culebra can be rough (dramamine is usually available) but the return is usually gentle.

There is much to do relatively close to the condo.

**If you want to map a distance on Google maps use the Luquillo Cemetary as your starting point- it is the closest landmark to the condo.** I have links to many maps already just email for more information:)
