  • Fantastic location with the most incredible views up the coast. The balcony is all it's made out to be and more - what a view!
    Luquillo is also a fantastic location, close to some of the best beaches on the mainland, a short drive to the rainforest and the bio-bay in Fajero - the treeline of which you can see in the distance from the balcony!
    Maybe it's the sea wind, or the height, but even leaving windows open I didn't see a single mosquito!
    The complex is very secure, with a guard house and electric gates - no worries leaving stuff in the car.
    One thing to be aware of - the houses around the condo complex look rundown at first. This seems common in Puerto Rico. Turns out Sandy Hills seems in a pretty OK neighbourhood - I'm pretty sure the coastal humid Caribbean climate wreaks havoc on paint, so nothing to be alarmed by.
    Thoroughly recommend this apartment - hoping I can return at some point in the future!

  • Juan's wonderful place was just what we were hoping for. My fiancé and I wanted a quiet beach getaway and this more than fit the bill. The two bedroom apartment is a great fit for a family or two couples.

    From the start, Juan's communication was timely and helpful. The apartment was clean and the kitchen had everything we needed for some in house cooking. We spent the mornings drinking coffee and taking in the spectacular sunrise. Even though the condo building is of noteworthy size, the beach in front of it was totally empty or had 1 other person on it whenever we went out there. We spent the first day walking and were able to walk to the following beaches, La Selva (out to the right of the apartment), going the other direction out of the apartment we walked to La Pared, Playa Azul and Playa Luquillo. Each had its own personality and we enjoyed seeing the variation in each, all were very clean, beautiful and safe. We want to stress that walking to the right to La Selva, we saw NOBODY. It was unbelievable, you really felt like you were in the jungle and the beach all at once.

    As others have mentioned, there are some touristy and not so touristy places within walking distance from the apartment. We enjoyed Pasta y Pueblo, Boardriders, the Kiosks (a further walk, but walkable!) and Luquillo's main square.

    I hope you take advantage of this great place to stay.

  • Great host. Great Apartment. Beautiful beach and view. Exactly what we were looking for.

  • Juan's apartment is a well-supplied condo in paradise, perfectly equipped for a simplified life of time off. The photos do not do it justice, especially the view…which is perhaps the best in all Puerto Rico. We have stayed in both the large condo complexes in Luquillo, and if you are desiring privacy, a direct ocean view, sounds of the constant crashing waves with no road noise, then this is definitely the place.
    We also found the staff at the condo helpful and friendly, way beyond the call-of-duty.
    Since we were one of the first guests to book with Juan back in late 2013, we read all the reviews we could find from other sites and places for rent. That was a good idea, as it gave us insight into the neighborhood, restaurants nearby, proximity to interesting sights.
    We travel a lot and prefer to get out of the insulated "Hilton" type hotel areas, be with real people, close to independently owned businesses and restaurants, and this location fit this criteria for us.
    I am hopeful we can return to the area, and we would definitely like to stay in Juan's place again.

  • Staying at Juan's 15th floor apartment was the cornerstone for a very memorable visit to Puerto Rico. While in the apartment, I must have spent most of my time on the balcony-- amazing views of the beach, especially during both sunrise and sunset. The residential tower is located in a laid back, very friendly beachside community with many walkable establishments. I enjoyed myself at both tourist-leaning places like The Brass Cactus and Boardriders as well as at more neighborhood spots like El Flamboyan and, well...a couple other bars that didn't even seem to have names. I had a blast practicing my Spanish by shooting pool and drinking Medalla with the locals. Close to El Yunque rainforest and also very easy to get to the east and south coast by car. There's a little bit for everyone. I can't wait to make it back!

  • Juan's place in Luquillo was outstanding! The view was unbelievable and the beach equally incredible! The unit itself was extremely clean, very well equipped and very spacious. It was a perfect place for my girlfriend and I to enjoy some relaxing beach time, while also being close to the El Yunque National Forest (s place again!

  • I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Juan's place. Juan was the perfect host and his communication was excellent. The apartment was perfect for my needs. It's very close to attractions like El Yunque, the kioskos, and Puerto del Rey marina. The building was very private and safe. The accommodations were comfortable and made me feel at home. The other tenants in the building were friendly and helpful. However, the true beauty of Juan's place is the VIEW! It's gorgeous at sunrise, moonrise, and every hour in between. It alone is worth every penny.

  • The apartment was amazing and the location could not be better. Juan was a great host and we would love to return sometime in the future! One moment remain in your heart: great view to the beautiful beach and sound of the ocean.
