Our beachfront getaway is on the 6th floor of Playa Azul I, in the seaside village of Luquillo, located in the northeast coast, northwest of Fajardo; and east of Rio Grande. It is approximately a 30 minute drive from San Juan Airport.
Playa Azul I is part of a gated complex with a swimming pool, and tennis and basketball courts. The front gate and buildings are staffed with security 24/7. The beach is less than a one minute walk! Please note that the beach in front of the condo is not staffed by lifeguards.
**As of June 2018 the pool is closed for repairs. We've adjusted our rate to account for repairs taking place since the hurricane.
The apartment has two bedrooms each with air conditioners. Bedroom 1 has one queen sized bed and on suite bathroom with walk-in closet. Bedroom 2 is larger and has one king sized bed with an on suite bathroom and walk-in closet. Each bedroom has windows that open overlooking the ocean. Bed linens and towels provided. Guests bring their own toiletries.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a new cooktop, dishes, knives, utensils, and cookware. We also have a washer and a dryer for your convenience. Guests bring/buy their own dish soap and laundry soap.
The living room has a ceiling fan to circulate the ocean breeze to keep things cool. We have an HD TV with a cable and WiFi internet access.
We have a large balcony to enjoy the scenic view. We eat most of our meals outside on the large table. We also have a smaller dining room table that seats four comfortably.
DO NOT LEAVE SMALL CHILDREN UNATTENDED ON THE BALCONY. They may crawl up on furniture and be in danger. Keep the furniture away from the railing.
You can have a lazy, relaxing vacation, an active vacation with excursions and adventure or a combination of both. However you spend your time, we invite you to stay and enjoy yourself in this lovely seaside town.
