Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Newly remodeled one-bedroom steps away from the ocean

Hurricane Maria Update: The property did not suffer damages, has water, electricity, and wifi. However, the power grid is still fragile and service can be spotty as will be the case anywhere in Puerto Rico. The building's elevators shafts were flooded during the hurricane and elevators can be frequently out of service. Last, the pool is currently closed, due also to hurricane damage.

In the area, most businesses are open, especially those associated with tourism. However, there is limited access to the Caribbean National Forest.

One bedroom apartment with balcony and ocean view. In addition to a queen bed in the bedroom, there are two futons in the living room. A 15 minute drive to the Caribbean national forest and walking distance to Luquillo beach, surfing spots and a ten-mile-wide deserted beach to the east. Neighboring town of Fajardo offers scuba/snorkeling day trips, sailboat and fishing boat charters as well as ferries to beautiful Vieques and Culebra islands.

If you want to do sightseeing outside of San Juan, a car is almost an absolute necessity in Puerto Rico. However, if your plan involves morning coffee with a view, the beach, books, good food and company, it is possible to do without one. All within walking distance from the apartment you will find other beaches, a supermarket, a pharmacy, restaurants, bars, laundry, churches, doctors and other services. The village of Luquillo is also within walking distance. Taxi to the apartment costs about $65.

About Wandy Rodriguez

I am a resident of San Juan, where families like to get away from it all to the 'country-side' on the weekends and summer months. We bought this place when my children were young and now we share it with others through Home Away/VRBO.

Wandy Rodriguez purchased this apartment in 1975

Why Wandy Rodriguez chose Solimar

The view and the fact that it is close to San Juan and in the eastern part of the island, close to El Yunque rain forest and all sorts of beach and ocean activities in nearby Fajardo.

What makes this apartment unique

From the front door you can see the rain forest in the distance and from anywhere in the apartment the wide blue sea. Going to sleep to the sound of the ocean breeze and waves is an unforgettable sensory experience.

Clean, cozy and beachfront

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time this past week. The water was out in the building the first three days and the property manager put us in the Waldorf Astoria, paid and fully arranged before we got there. It was really nice to not have to hassle with finding somewhere else to go once we got off the plane. They allowed us to be in the room to be close to the beach while the water was off, which was really nice of them. The place was clean and tidy. There was wifi, movies and extra books and beach towels. The only thing we would change is the bed is a bit outdated and hurt. We ended up staying one night in the bed and moved to the futon for the last two nights and slept great out there. This place was great.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for memorial day week. Wandy was great. Answered any questions I had and was quick to answer. Pictures don't do the place justice. Beautiful view. Playa Azul beach is incredible. Having a view of El Yunque and only being a half an hour away from the national Forest was great for us. Bed was very comfortable, would highly recommend if you're try to see the north Eastern part of the island. Great food near by. Luquillo beach isn't far at all. We walked there along the beach. Having all the kiosks near by was a bonus. Super friendly people!

Oceanfront property located within a 15 minute drive to the caribbean national forest of el yunque. It is within walking distance to the tranquil waters of luquillo beach to the west, the surfing spot of la pared to the east, and a ten mile stretch of deserted beach further east. In the town of Fajardo many amenities await. These include kayaking in a bioluminescent bay, the las cabezas nature reserve and spending the day in icacos cay, scuba and snorkeling daytrips as well as sailboat and fishing charters are available. Daytrips to the gorgeous islands of culebra and vieques are a possibility through a scheduled ferry, although more time to explore them is well recommended.
