There are two terraces off the main floor Great Room perfect for dining al fresco and watching the sunrise. The kitchen is fully equipped to meet your every need.

*Head up to your own private rooftop terrace providing you with 1200 + sf (and a half bath) of direct ocean front relaxation space - this unique feature is truly a bit of paradise.

This condo served as a great base for a week in Luquillo. The highlight is the incredible beach right in front of the property -- no gearing up to spend a day at the beach, no packing, no forgetting something -- walk for about 42 seconds and you're there. The water was quite calm, as others have noted, so it was great for our 3 year old, and snorkeling right there was a lot of fun, too.

There are many food options all within ~2 miles of the condo, either in the town of Luquillo or over at the kioskos, so there's no chance of culinary boredom. There's also an Amigo supermarket in town which carries most everything you'd need for making breakfast, lunch, or dinner at the condo.

The condo is also an excellent location for exploring other parts of the island. We twice drove into Old San Juan (about a 40 minute trip) and also visited El Yunque (about 20 minutes). Fajardo, where the ferries leave for Vieques and Culebra, is also nearby.

Alana, who recently took over as a property manager, was very pleasant to work with, and quite responsive over email in answering some questions I had. We didn't avail ourselves of her services, but she offered to have groceries waiting for us, get ferry tickets, etc.

The location of this condo is unsurpassed, directly on the beach, where you can snorkel, or walk about a mile along the beach to an excellent swimming beach. It is very quiet and secure, no loud music, but close to restaurants, grocery stores etc., and a short drive to El Yunque park and to ferries to Vieques and Culebra. Alana, who manages the condo, is very helpful, and responds immediately to texts/phone calls. we have already booked for next year!

Located at Poza del Mar, Luquillo, Peurto Rico, this rental is a beautiful place to vacation. The third floor condominium had great views and a wonderful ocean breeze. The location is excellent to enjoy El Yunque, Fajardo, the Routa Panoramica and even Rio Camuy Caverns.

The owners could not have been easier to work with. They were very helpful.

To help you find the property, especially if you arrive at night, put in these GPS coordinates: N 18 degrees 23.288' W065 degrees 43.245' .

The condo rental was perfect for our puerto-rican vacation. Beautiful sunrises, and cool ocean breeze, never even needed the air conditioner. The shuttered windows let in the breeze perfectly, the gated parking lot and back yard was very nice and secure, the beach behind the condo was very nice and clean and deep enough to snorkel and watch fish, the reef stops the breakers about 75 yards out. So the beach is safe for children also. You can walk down the beach 100 yards to where the water is deeper and the waves come in real good. The condo location is perfect to explore the rest of the island, Minutes to the rain-forest ( El Yunque) Close enough to Fajardo to the ferry for day trips to Culebra and Vieques. A short drive to Old San Juan and a short drive down the east coast into the mountains, beaches and light houses. It was the perfect base for our Puerto-Rican adventures.

Beautiful location and view!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this lovely condo!

The location was great too! Away from all the traffic in San Juan but not too far to drive to either! Rain forest near by was fun too!! Be sure to take the ferry to Culebra to snorkel with Island Adventures!! That was by far our best day!! Alana does a great job taking care of all your needs too!! Will definitely return to this location!! You wont be disappointed!!

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very large and had everything that you might need. Beds were very comfortable and the air in the bedrooms were nice and cold. It was right on a beautiful beach. Very close to everything that you might need. We felt very safe the whole time. Would recommend to anyone that asked. I am sure we will rent it again.

Suggestions: Cooler with wheels and maybe a beach umbrella for guest.

Amazing beachfront condo with a million dollar view!!!! PERFECTION!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our two kids spent 11 days in this amazing condo! We absolutely loved it! The view is to die for .... you have to see it to believe it! And the outdoor living space is unmatched! We loved waking up every morning, opening the glass doors and the kitchen windows and drinking coffee while soaking up the view and killer trade winds. It was paradise!!!!

The layout of the space is wonderful, the outdoor living space is the best. Both bedrooms are spacious and the beds are super comfy. The AC units work great, rooms were nice and cool at night. There's plenty of towels, toiletries, kitchen is very well equipped and there are tons of beach toys/chairs.

The rooftop terrace is amazing! That's where we snuck to at night when the kids went to sleep to enjoy the nighttime view and cool breeze.

Our concierge, Alana Sauer, was absolutely amazing! She's knowledgeable, friendly, very helpful and super responsive. She was a joy to work with and we look forward to seeing her again! (we are definitely coming back, Alana!)

We felt super safe and were big fans of the fenced in courtyard. It was the perfect place for our kids to play ball and pet the friendly little kitties running around.

Our favorite spots were the Brass Cactus -- it's very close to the condo (a 2 minute drive). They have great food, a very friendly vibe and are open late. We also loved the kioskos, they're a 5 minute drive on the frontage road. I highly recommend kiosko #2 (La Parilla) and #20 (Erruno) -- they had the BEST food ever! Great seafood, friendly service and awesome mojitos (passion fruit was my favorite!)

We shopped for jewelry at Studio Coco (#13), the owner, Cheri, makes beautiful stuff! It's the perfect stop for nicer souvenirs. Hit up Monkey Threads too .... it's a cool tshirt shop, I bought lots of fun stuff!

The beach was the highlight of our stay! Snorkeling right out front of the condo was top notch. The kids loved it! But if you want to swim, take a right out of the condo and walk down to the swimming beach. There's a roped off area that's perfect for the kids. AND, you're much closer to Brass Cactus if you want to take a super short walk for lunch. I think we ate lunch there just about every afternoon!!!!!

Book this place if you want a killer condo with a great view, kick ass trade winds, want to be close to amazing food and fun shopping ... AND .... if you'd love to work with a really great concierge! We will most definitely return!!!!

Great get-away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and were very pleased. Very much as advertised. Condo is comfortable and functional. Internet is fast (20d/2u), TV sufficient, kitchen excellent. Very nice having in-condo W/D. Rooftop BBQ works well, but rooftop not good for much more than that. Shower water pressure is a bit lacking. You may want to foil-over the small windows in the bedroom if you intend to sleep past sunrise. AC in bedroom works great. Lots of fans everywhere else (though not needed much with the huge breeze constantly flowing in). We didn't see a mosquito the whole time we were there. Beach in front of condo has great sand and warm/clean water, but only good for sitting in and relaxing, not snorkeling... perfect for small kids. Food choices nearby are good... recommend Boardrider, Brass Cactus, and most of all... the kioskos... lots of great choices at great prices. Alana is great. She will help you with anything. We had some loud neighbors and she got in touch with the other property manager (twice!) and fixed that. Summary: you will have a good time.

Beautiful condo with the best ocean and beach view

  • 5 of 5

We were so amazed with the beautiful and tasteful decorations. The location was perfect and we couldn't have asked for more from our first trip to PR. All of the locals are very friendly and this is the perfect spot for a romantic or family getaway! We will definitely be back! Great job guys you have thought of everything anyone could want.
