We had a really great experience at this lovely condo right by the beach. The views were amazing and to be able to sleep with the sound of waves was really a wonderful and unexpected feature of the apartment. The neighborhood is quiet and not touristy at all. There are some great restaurants and grocery stores near by.
Claudia was really quick to respond to all of my questions and checking in and out was really easy and quick!
I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Claudia for having us!
Overall this was a really pleasant experience. The apartment was exactly as described, and the view of the beach was picture-perfect—we especially enjoyed relaxing on the balcony with that view. The location was great, as well: right at the beach and close enough to drive to everything worth seeing. The gated community was a nice plus in feeling safe and secure. There was a little hiccup when we first arrived: it wasn't completely clear what to do from both Claudia's instructions and what the security guard was asking for. But that was a very minor bump compared to all of the wonderful things about our stay.
We loved the apartment! It was exactly as described. Clean and very comfortable!
Claudia responded quickly to all our requests. The apartment/condo was perfect for our anniversary trip. It has beautiful views of the ocean, convenient beach access, and a host of items out on the balcony that we were able to use on the beach. It was a beautiful place with a great hostess, and we would definitely stay there again!
Claudia's apartment was just how it looks in the photo. Very clean, cozy and the view from the balcony is incredible! It has everything you could need from basic amenities like soap and towels, to coolers, beach chairs and snorkel gear. The bed is also super comfortable! We loved the beach right in front of the apartment complex- we went to three others in the area and this one was actually our favorite. The apartment is about a 15 min walk to the kiosks in one direction, and 10 min walk to our personal favorite bar/restaurant, Boardriders, in the other. Also a short drive to El Yunque rainforest. Claudia was very friendly, helpful and responded quickly to any email or text message from booking to check out. Overall we loved Luquillo and look forward to returning!
We really enjoyed our week long stay at this condo. The view is as advertised...simply stunning. You even have a good view of the mountains behind. The trade winds blow through the apartment keeping to nice and cool. It is a safe complex with a gated entrance with guard, as well as security in the lobby. The beach access was great and made easier by the chairs, coolers, and beach towels that are already at the apartment. The kitchen is well equipped and with a grocery right across the street we felt right at home. The bathroom could use some work but is totally functional - certainly not the ritz but that's not what we came down for and it didn't cause any issues during our stay. Bath towels were provided and the trade winds blowing through the main area of the unit dried them easily during the day. The area has a nice local feel with plenty of good spots to eat (check out Pasta y Pueblo, Boardriders, and la Parilla @ kioskos) We rented a car and expanded our trip to Fajardo, Calebra, El Yunque, and San Juan, etc. and enjoyed snorkeling (using the apartments gear!). What a memorable trip to Puerto Rico this was!
The best part of Claudia's condo is the amazing view from the patio! We also enjoyed the location in Luquillo, which is close to lots of activities (rainforest, biobay, snorkeling trip). Unfortunately, the condo had a lot of small problems that piled up, making it an uncomfortable stay. For example: the shower head sprays erratically and leaks all over the bathroom floor, the toilet is really fussy, the bed pillows were stained, there were no bath or hand towels at all (it might have been my own fault for not reading closely and bringing my own towels) so we had to go buy bath towels but the condo stays so warm and humid that nothing ever dries and we used the same soggy bath towels for 3 days, the refrigerator made a loud buzzing noise, the bedroom TV doesn't get service, and I found a shard of glass lying on the floor when we first entered. I hate to be picky, especially when there are so many positive reviews and I'm obviously in the minority, but all of these little inconveniences added up. I did appreciate that Claudia provided beach chairs for us to use, and the beach out front of the apartment is amazing.
