Great place! The apartment is clean and new. The location is great if you rent a car, which I would highly recommend in Puerto Rico. The place has a decent pool and is very close to Luquillo Beach, the best surfing beach in PR. Antonio is very kind and helpful. In all, great experience!
Antonio was a great host and very accommodating and easy to communicate with. The apartment is great and perfect for anyone looking to stay near the beach in Luquillo in a safe and private building. The apartment had everything we needed-laundry, a coffee maker, full kitchen with cooking supplies, a pullout couch and AC. The parking was very easy and convenient as well. I would definitely recommend staying here and recommend Antonio as a host as he replied very quickly and was extremely helpful throughout the whole process.
I had an awesome time staying in Luquillo. Antonio's place is right next to the beach and all the restaurants and shops. His place is clean and comfortable. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything I needed. I would definitely recommend staying here! It is a great value and Antonio is very helpful and kind!
Antonio was very attentive about getting us situated at his apartment. He repeatedly told us to call him with any issues. The apartment is very comfortable and he has set it up with almost anything you might need. There is WIFI but you have to go to the counter outside the admin office by the main gate to use it.
Had a great time in Luquillo this week! The apartment was comfortable, clean, and accessible to a lot of activities in the area. We were only a short walk from the beach and a short drive to El Yunque National Forest and the marina in Fajardo. Neighborhood was nice-- mostly residential. It was a great place for people like my fiance and me who dislike overcrowded tourist resorts.
Antonio was very friendly and prompt in dropping off the keys. He was also quite patient with us when our ride to our meet-up point at the vehicle rental center was 30 minutes late. I would definitely suggest Antonio and his property to friends!
Antonio met us at the airport to give us the keys and gave us great advice about getting around, good food in Luquillo, etc.
The apartment is located a short walk from a beautiful beach in a quiet, non-touristy area--it was just what we were looking for.
The apartment is clean, well-stocked with towels, kitchen tools, etc. It was a very comfortable place to stay and WAY better than a hotel.
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Antonio's apartment July 12-20!! Antonio met us right at the airport to give us the keys. We also requested paper directions in advance. We brought a GPS but wanted a back-up plan since we had never been to Luquillo. Antonio provided us with a detailed sketch which was easy to follow. On our third to last night, an alarm of some kind started going off in the apartment directly below Antonio's. After communicating with Antonio, he was able to get in touch with the building administrator and get the alarm to stop. We also contacted him for dinner suggestions one evening. He provided us with a lot of great choices.
Everything was CLEAN, very immaculate! I'm a neat freak and I didn't see a speck of dust or dirt even on the floors. The AC works great, the building was quiet. Antonio told us it was high season, but we only saw 4 or 5 other cars in the parking lot. There is a brand new washer and dryer in the kitchen (we didn't use but would have had our stay been longer), a 6 cup coffee maker (again, we didn't use but we are 1 cup coffee people so we settled for instant), plenty of towels/sheets/cups/dishes/plastic ware/cooking essentials in the kitchen. I even found travel coffee mugs and wine glasses. Previous guests had left some napkins so we paid it forward and replenished any paper products that we consumed. I mistakenly packed two shampoos so I was relieved to find two bottles of conditioner underneath the bathroom sink. We also made use of the bug spray during our visits to the rain forest. The closets in the bedroom: HUGE and stocked with plenty of hangers.
There are only four cons which are VERY minor... (1)the bed pillows are as flat as pancakes and not comfortable. We ended up using the decorative pillows as bolsters. (2) There is NOT a fitness center at the building but this was not a deal breaker. I used the open area in the living room to exercise which worked great. The area surrounding the building is also great/safe for running which we saw a lot of people doing. (3) There is no wifi. (4) Just a warning, exiting the back gate to the beach, there is a ferocious dog that lives right next door. The dog took us by surprise so be cautious.
This was our second experience using Airbnb and we have Antonio to thank for an outstanding trip.
(Traveler tip: there is a very quaint and delicious cafe in town [Aroma]. The coffee/food are excellent. When dining in, a local told us to call ahead with your order otherwise you wait a LONG time to get service at the cafe. We had Michelle as our server, who couldn't have been nicer and spoke perfect English. The eggs benedict were divine!)
