This home is located at the heart Luquillo's town. It is located one block from the beach, only two of the town and all its neighboring restaurants. A community 'surfers' and migrants from everywhere in the world make this town a very different place to stay and/or live.
The home consists of three bedrooms, a bathroom, a 'living room,' kitchen, terraces on both sides of the house (front and back) and a shared patio. The home can accommodate up to four people (each with their own bed) and up to six people in special cases. The home has electricity, water and internet access. It is one block away from the beach and three from the town of Luquillo. Transportation around town is not very difficult but to travel to other places you would have to have your own transportation figured out. But this shouldn't put you off as it facilitates the possibility of vacationing without many distractions and sharing with the friendly neighbours.

For now, this apartment is located on the first floor of a house and there is a couple living on the second floor. The courtyard is shared but the second floor is not. I ask to keep a respectful distance for the privacy of the couple and encourage you to share time with them if you like.
I prefer guests contact me by phone a few days before the booking to coordinate the delivery of the keys. I love to meet guests and talk to them when I give them the keys but if delivery is difficult we could do where we seem more comfortable to both. Please keep in mind, that I'm not usually at the apartment since I live in the area of San Juan.
The neighborhood is quiet, small and very diverse. It is a good place to work alone, to visit the beach whenever you want and close to many things to do. If you visit the tourist attractions, the apartment is very close to activities such as visiting the Yunque, 'kayaking' in the bioluminescent bay and travel to Culebra and Vieques, among many other. If you do not want to travel to attend any of these activities, a perfect place to have a decent selection of restaurants, a great place to visit the local markets (night and day) and meet some interesting neighbors.
The best way to get to Luquillo would through their own private transport. The home is about 45min - 1hr of San Juan and no reliable public transport to take you from the capital. The apartment has access to street parking. If you have a problem with arriving at the apartment you can always trust to call me and find a solution.
The house was everything we hoped it would be. Cozy and welcoming Nice backyard,very helpful upstairs tenants,and a short walk to the beach.The end of the yard borders a regulation size baseball field. A fan would appreciate sharing a property line with the leftfield fence; at least that was our experience.
Carlos and Pablillo were excellent hosts-and very responsive if you have a question. A very relaxing and friendly location---don't know why we left....
We had a wonderful trip and wish we could have stayed longer! Since our flight was cancelled, Pablillo and his dad were great about rearranging their schedule to get us the keys and show us around; they definitely went out of their way to help us out. The apartment was exactly as advertised. Clean, spacious, accessible. It was so nice too having a backyard.
Regarding the area, we found it a bit hard to find good meals. In town, there seemed to only be a coffee shop, surfer bar, pizza place and a few other restaurants open (we only went to the coffee shop and surfer bar). Down the street, there was a little "deli" open at lunch. There were kiosks in driving distance, but those close at 9pm. No late dining here! It was good having a full grocery store so close, and on Hwy 3 we found a fruit/veggie vendor that also had a few ready made dishes.
But we found it to be the perfect location with easy access to San Juan, the rainforest, the beach, etc. The beach was not crowded at all and was very clean. Nice that we could just walk there. And the birds! Loved hearing them throughout the day. There's a nice breeze too from the ocean at the apartment so the climate was good...no need for AC.
Hope we get the chance to come back!
Pablillo's apartment is in an excellent location. Right next to the beach and some bars that you can walk to. It's within 5 mins drive from the kioscos as well. The place served as an excellent base for our trips to El Yunque, Culebra, Fajardo etc. The apt was very clean and was as advertised. The backyard is excellent for chilling out with a beer at the end of the day. Would definitely stay again.
We were so thrilled to arrive in this beautiful apartment with an amazing garden! Our hosts were the sweetest ever, extremely helpful and available, the beach was a block away, and the queen bed was the comfiest bed ever!
Staying in Luquillo was the perfect location to go visit El Yunke, stay by the ocean, and offered terrific restaurants nearby: Pasta y Pueblo around the corner, and #20 of the Luquillo Kiosks.
We had a very pleasant stay at Luquillo. The apartment is very comfortable and inviting. Close to the beach, plaza, restaurants. Our host was very helpful and welcoming. We will definitely be going back!
