Come enjoy the beautiful beaches of Luquillo in this fully furnished, three bedroom, one bath apartment. Located on the second floor of a two-story, four-unit property just steps from the sand, the renovated unit features an open living space and kitchen area. The living area opens to a large private balcony where you can play a game of cards or dominoes, or grill up some seafood in the portable stainless steel grill. Take a break from the sun with wireless internet and a flat-screen Samsung TV, DVD player and satellite. The apartment comfortably sleeps six people, and each bedroom has A/C: a master bedroom with a queen-sized bed, one bedroom with two twin beds (which can be rolled together), and one bedroom with a bunkbed.
In addition to being steps away from the sand, the apartment has a great central location: 3 minute drive to the delicious "kioskos," or fritter joints; 5 minute drive to El Yunque rainforest, 15 minute drive to the natural reserve and historical lighthouse Las Cabezas de San Juan and the bioluminescent bay; 15 minute drive to the Vieques and Culebra ferry. Supermarkets, gas stations, and pharmacies are also less than a mile away, making it easy to stock up on essentials.
Linens, towels, beach towels, beach chairs, and one parking spot included.
Smoking only allowed in the balcony.
Mari's apartment is the perfect place for families exploring Puerto Rico through day trips. We hiked, explored caves, kayaked, visited Culebra by ferry, saw Old San Juan and museums, and found several beautiful beaches. There was a convenient grocery store and of course the kiosks all nearby. As others have mentioned, the apartment had everything one could need during a beach vacation. What an easy and pleasant first Airbnb experience!
Awesome apartment!!! It's literally steps away from the beach and perfectly locates among San Juan, El Yunque and Fajardo which are where stuff happens. Three AC-equipped bedrooms for four people are a big plus for us. We love the BBQ stove and the kitchen. They are really in great conditions and we used them for our BBQ party and dinner party. There are also built-in washer and dryer, which is great! This place also have grocery store, walgreen, McDonalds and restaurants nearby. Mari prepare for us many beach towels and shower towels, which is awesome. She is a great host, very chill and organized!
Little cons: the common room doesn't have AC, which isn't really that bad because we goes there in the "winter" and the temperature is just perfect. Also, some pillow sheets smell a bit old and we had to wash them. Other than that, this place is AWESOME!
Nice location and the apartment was well stocked. Beach is 2 minutes away. Communication with Mari was excellent and she gave detailed instructions and was very helpful with any questions that we had.
We had a nice stay. The flat was spacious and light. The beach has vigorous surf and (we hear) undertows. But there are very nice beaches nearby. Not much to eat in Luquillo but nice restaurants in Fajardo.
Mari's condo is amazing! It's in a great location, especially if you like being away from the intensity of San Juan. The neighborhood is very safe, the beach is literally steps away from the condo, and there's plenty to do within a half hour drive. My roommates, boyfriend, and I were there for 8 days and never ran out of things to do. The condo itself is well equipped, clean, and the open plan kitchen and living room makes for a great hang out spot when it's raining. Overall, we absolutely loved our stay.
Mari's communication was great, and she arranged to have her niece give us the key at the airport, which worked out very well.
The location is fabulous, just half a block from the gorgeous beach at Luquillo, and a bit of a longer walk along the beach to get to a safer area for swimming.
As others have mentioned, Mari has beach towels and beach chairs to use on the beach, and it was great. A large grocery store, Amigo, is a short drive away. The kioscos are also not very far. Highly recommended is the one on the far (east) end of the group, La Parrilla. My kids (adults) are "foodies" and reported that it is excellent.
I highly recommend Mari's condo!
My family and I stayed in Mari's apartment for three days last week. The apartment is spacious and very clean. It's within walking distance to a beach and some small restaurants and only a short drive from San Juan, El Yunque and other major tourist attractions.
This apartment is in a great location in a quiet neighborhood. Mari's mother Tere was right on time to give us the keys upon arrival at the airport. The apartment is spacious, exceptionally clean with everything you need to have a comfortable stay. Literally one of the best beaches right out your front door as well as other local attractions and amenities. This was our first trip to PR and this place and the island is highly recommendable. We would definitely stay here again.
Bonus: The neighbor, Wandy, works for East Island Adventures and hooked us up with a great boat tour. She is very nice and incredibly helpful.
We had a lovely stay at Mari's place in Luquillo! The apartment is very clean, big and really close to the beach and el yuncue, just perfect for what we wanted. We stayed there for 9 days and couldn't have chosen a better place! In the appartment you can find all you need for the beach as well, chairs, bodyboards towels etc. In the evenings you could sit outside barbecuing or just enjoy a nice glass of wine. Mari answered almost every time immediately and made us feel like home. If i ever get back to Puerto Rico i would definitely choose her place. Thank you Mari!
The apartment is quite large, with 3 bedrooms altogether, AC in all the bedrooms works great. It is well-stocked with beach supplies and towels.
The location of this apartment can't be beat for a beach vacation. You can walk the half a block to the beach in just a minute or two.
Overall, we liked the choices of places to eat over in Fajardo better than in Luquillo, but if you have a car, Fajardo is just 10-15 minutes down the road.
However, the "kioscos" just to the west of this neighborhood also have some excellent food choices. Especially look for one of them called "the Ceviche Hut" -- excellent ceviche, and the mojitos weren't too shabby either.
The beach at Luquillo is just beautiful. Great place to lounge in the shade of the palm trees, or body surf or swim in the ocean. Definitely recommended.
