If you stay on the coastal highway going east from San Juan, you'll soon reach Luquillo Beach. This huge plantation of majestic coconut palms shades more than a mile of fine and shimmering sand. It is one of the most popular and nicest public beaches in the San Juan area. It offers cafeterias, public bathrooms with showers, access for disabled people, and an ample parking lot. Monserrate Beach is one of the public beaches most frequented by the locals. In 2006 El Balneario de Luquillo (The Luquillo Beach) was pronounced the most popular one in Puerto Rico.
The house is located in a very tranquilo area, you definitely will enjoy a peaceful time with the sounds of the ocean, birds and wind! a perfect getaway!
Other Things to Note
We have a convenience store just few steps from the house, where you can buy ice, beers, drinks, BBQ materials or any other inmmediate needs.
The house rule is to return the house the same way was given to the renter, clean and organized. We really appreciate if our guests recycle and use the compost bin.
overall: positive experience. While better for a younger crowd than older folks, Nadya's place worked well for us.

Nadya was very helpful in providing local information. The house is nice with a lot of outdoor space. Although not luxurious it is functional. The house is old but comfortable. Beds are small in length for a 6' person. Great location for El Yunque and the Kiosks.
We had a great time at Nadya's place. We were there in mid-April, and it was hot and humid. We basically spent the whole time out on the patio, lounging in the hammocks and staring at the waves. We went to the beach at the Balneario de Luquillo one day (about a 5 minute drive) and it was perfect. Warm, tranquil water and beautiful views of the ocean and El Yunque. At night we could see tons of stars from the yard and the 2nd floor patio. The little mercado a block away was great to walk to for little things and there is a big grocery store a few minutes by car. The outdoor grill is awesome, but you need lots of charcoal. There are also a ton of restaurants at the kioskos a 5 minute drive away.
The place has everything you need, but it's definitely not for people who can't deal with a few ants or other bugs. There were some mosquitoes outside, but it wasn't terrible and normal bug spray kept them away. If you want to stay among locals and away from the tourist condos and high-rises, this is a great choice.
We loved visiting this side of the island. I did feel like the title "beach house" was a little misleading since you can't actually access the beach from the property. The proximity to Luquillo beach and the kiosks is amazing though. The house itself was great though the kitchen was poorly appointed with broken dishes and scratched cookware. We only received 5 towels for 4 people for a 6 day stay which was insufficient. All linens in the house were mismatched and well worn. I feel that for the price things should be a little nicer. The yard and outdoor seating and bbq area are amazing. Overall we loved our stay despite the little issues.
