The Space

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.

  • What a great apt and experience in Luquillo. Apt was clean and full of beach and kitchen supplies and towels and toiletries. Tere (Mari's mom) met us promptly at airport to give us keys, directions, and answer any questions. There was tourist literature at apt. that helped out. Neighbors in apt. complex were great (Francis sold home cooked meals that were delicious)! The location is ideal. We went easily to El Yunque, Fajardo (where we took the ferrry to Culebra Island and a snorkeling kayaking trip) and Bio Bay Las Croabas. Would stay here again and highly recommend the apt.

  • This apartment was a wonderful home base for our stay in Puerto Rico. It has everything that you could think of--we especially appreciated the fully stocked kitchen, beach towels, and beach chairs. We did not get to meet Mari, but her mother Tere was kind enough to meet us at the airport with the keys and gave us thorough directions as well. This was one of the best AirBNB experiences we've ever had. Thank you!

  • We loved our stay at "Casita Chica". The condo was very comfortable and clean, and is truly just a few steps to the beach. There were plenty of beach towels, and 4 beach chairs, which was great for us. There are a few nice reefs at the beach, but be careful...the current there is fairly strong. When at the beach, if you go left around the point, you'll get to another beach that is very calm and also has lots of food kioskos and great pina coladas! If you don't want to walk that far, you can drive to the parking lot of the beach...only about a minute from the condo. It's $4 to park, but worth it if you're lugging a lot of stuff with you. The condo is very conveniently located. There is a Walgreens and a supermarket just a few minutes away. Just around the corner is a restaurant/bar called the Brass Cactus...good food and drinks. We most certainly will be coming back and staying in Mari's condo again. It was a wonderful "home away from home" for us. Thank you Mari..!

  • We had a wonderful stay in Luquillo! The apartment was perfect; clean, charming, very well equipped, spacious and steps from the beach. We were traveling with our 21 month old daughter and found the apartment very kid friendly. There was even a travel crib, stroller and beach toys!
    Mari and her mother were great! They were both very prompt and thorough with responses. They also provided us with detailed directions and lots of recommendations for food and activities.
    The beach at Luquillo is lovely for walking and snorkeling, though a bit rough for kids, current wise. The El Balneario (sp?), about five minutes away, is gorgeous and perfect for swimming.
    There aren't a ton of restaurants close by the apartment, but we really enjoyed the few we visited. Mari made some great recommendations that did not disappoint.
    This place is perfect if you're looking for a comfortable home-base to explore El Yunque, drink coffee and/or wine on the balcony and just relax and enjoy the beauty.

  • 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!
