Overview

About the property

Our vacation rental offers a peaceful retreat away from the crowds of the resorts and big city hotels. It is situated in the perfect spot for beach lovers wishing to spend hours of fun in the sun or for explorers needing a home base as they travel around Puerto Rico. It is the ideal getaway location, whether you are fleeing from the stress of daily life, vacationing with the family, or looking for a romantic getaway.

Located in Luquillo, a city in northeastern Puerto Rico and known as “La Capital del Sol” (Sun Capital), our apartment is very close to restaurants, shopping centers, beaches, places of interest, and only 40 minutes to San Juan. You have access to all the excitement and nightlife of our capital while avoiding the hustle and bustle of the big city.

The property is part of a gated 24-unit, 4-story walk-up condominium located within walking distance to the beautiful beach of Playa Azul, which connects with internationally known Luquillo Beach. We are within walking distance to local restaurants, shopping centers, bakeries, grocery stores, and downtown.

This one-bedroom, one-bath apartment invites you to relax and enjoy your Caribbean vacation. It offers a fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning throughout, ceiling fans, Wi-Fi internet, basic cable TV, linens, washer/dryer, and towels. All the comforts of home are waiting for you. You just need to pack your clothes and toothbrush!

Leave hotels behind and let us welcome you to Luquillo Hidden Oasis—your Caribbean paradise—for less than the cost of traditional hotel accommodations. We have all the amenities of a house in a quiet beach condo. Come and experience paradise while building beautiful memories. We look forward to having you as our Guest!

The neighborhood

Luquillo Hidden Oasis is located in a quiet and safe area where you get the feel of living like a local. Luquillo is a small, beach town home of the well-known Luquillo Beach and near El Yunque Rain Forest in Río Grande and Las Cabezas de San Juan Nature Reserve in Fajardo. This region is well known for its eco-tourism and natural beauty. Also, for being a prime nesting ground for the Leatherback sea turtle between the months of May and August.

Cuisine

Dining in Puerto Rico is very diverse. If food is important to you, then Puerto Rico is the place to be. We offer a variety of restaurants that have been influenced by cuisine from around the world. Whether you are looking for Puerto Rican, Asian, European, South American, or Caribbean cuisine, Puerto Rico has a place for you. From fine dining to roadside kiosks, you will love exploring our menus and discovering the many tastes of Puerto Rico.

Getting around

We suggest renting a car because our "must-see" attractions are not located in any centralized area and the public transportation system outside of the metro area is not that good. There are taxis available, Uber included, but given our location, they could prove to be cost-prohibitive. We have parking available for our guests.

About Rosa

Love the beach and always wanted to have a place where I could go every weekend and enjoy it. A place where I could relax and unwind after a hectic work week. I chose Luquillo because of its short commute from San Juan, and beautiful and serene beach. Now that I am not able to enjoy it as often as I would like, I am looking for respectful, responsible short-term renters to help pay the mortgage and utilities.

Rosa purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Rosa chose Luquillo

Our goal is to provide a peaceful retreat where Guests can stay as they enjoy and discover all the things that Puerto Rico has to offer and to be a good Host so that they would return to continue building beautiful memories.

GREAT PLACE to Stay

  • 5 of 5

#1 less than 100yds away from the beach.

#2 Secured location (gate entrance)

#3 GREAT Host - ROSA! very responsive and tries to make sure you enjoy your stay.

We spent 7 days here and indeed it was a home away from home. A/C worked great!

Also the sofa that opens to a chase was SO COMFY! After a long day going aroung the island visiting places, that chase was a blessing!!

Host - Rosa met us at the car rental location at the airport both arriving and departing - made it VERY convenient to handle the "business" of the trip.

42 year old male that traveled with my 73 year old father. We both had a wonderful time staying in luquillo at condo. The view of the mountains and close proximity to ocean will make me want to return again.

Great choice for beaches in eastern Puerto Rico

  • 5 of 5

We had just come from St John (USVI), so were prepared to be a bit disappointed in the PR beaches, but we were very pleased with the options available from this apartment. There were several beaches of different styles within a few miles drive. The best surprise was how nice the beach was just a three minute walk from this apartment. Great for early morning/evening walks. I'd recommend checking out the other beaches, too, with the kiosks on the beach to the west, and the kiosks and Fajardo’s Seven Seas beach, especially friendly and safe for children.

The apartment was nicely furnished, in a highly secure building. There were many odds and ends that made our stay more comfortable. It was a good value, and Rosa was charming. We would be glad to return here. This area was a good enough distance from San Juan that it was "in the country", yet only a 30 minute drive from the airport. If you don't mind stoplights and want to avoid the tolls, Rt 3 was not a bad road.

Nice and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I loved this apartment. It is not fancy but it has everything you could want. Kitchen has all utensils, some useful pantry items. The apartment has a new washing machine and dryer. Beach stuff etc.. location is excellent. Walking distance to the beach, restaurants, and there is a supermarket 3 min away by car. Owner is very friendly and attentive. Since I am Puerto Rican I come every year and from now on I will stay here.

Comfortable and convenient condo

  • 5 of 5

Hidden Oasis is nice one bedroom apartment located 150 meters from the beach in a quiet family neighborhood. The unit has been partially remodeled with a new AC unit in the living room. The unit has everything you could need for a comfortable stay including BBQ, beach towels, chairs, fully supplied bathroom and kitchen. For the money it is a very good value. All you really need is your swim suit and a toothbrush. The building is very secure and parking is right beneath the unit. The entire area is securely fenced in. The location is perfect for touring the east end of the island and is right below the national forest El Yunque (a must visit). The public beach is very clean and fine for beginning snorkeling. Luquillo beach is a short 10 minute walk. Luquillo is a quiet little town that comes to life on weekends when locals come to their condos. There are only a few restaurants in Luquillo, but the Brass Cactus, a sports bar, is just around the corner. The owner from Florida enjoys a good chat and is knowledgeable about the area. Fast food and grocery are across the street. Rosa the owner is very nice and really made us feel at home, she met us at the car rental office with the key. The unit is not faultless, there is no ocean view, the bedroom AC is a little loud (but the one in the living room will cool the whole unit), the kitchen is a little dated but is clean and everything works as it should. On our next visit to PR, we certainly hope to visit again.
