Javier's place was even nicer than the pictures. We loved the views from every room, and especially enjoyed lounging on the large balcony with its stunning views. We were with our 11month old baby and found that there was ample area for her to crawl around. We loved that the beach was only 5 minutes away, and enjoyed the complex amenities (pool, swings, etc). The apartment had all the amenities we needed to feel at home, and Javier was responsive with questions or issues that we had.
We loved staying here! We felt as if we were being welcomed into a friend's home. The apartment was even better than we expected based on the information provided in the listing. The balcony and view are spectacular! Each bedroom has a full size bed, which was perfect for us, two couples. The host left us friendly notes about where to find things and how to follow the property guidelines. The security and maintenance staff were all very friendly and welcoming. The beach is a short walk from the apartment and seemed pretty secluded. Even on a busy day there weren't too many people. I would definitely recommend this listing for travelers in Puerto Rico! It is a short drive from San Juan and Fajardo.
Amazing view and great amenities! I visited with my mom and brother and we had a great time. Javier is very responsive, and the flat is just very conveniently situated, has all the things one requires and is perfect to move and hop around the beaches that are close.
Javier made sure our stay was pleasant
His apartment has a good location. We lived the view and breeze from the apartment.
Girls trip to Puerto Rico! Major and Javier's place was absolutely perfect for us. The view was stunning, the cool wind running through the open windows was amazing and the beach was literally steps away. The apartment itself was adorable and had more to offer than we had expected (games, extra toiletries, etc.). Make sure you eat at Guava's on the beach and don't forget to order their house brewed guava beer. El Yunque rainforest was about a 15 minute drive away and an absolute must-see. Major and Javier were so accommodating and they responded promptly to every question and concern we had. They are great hosts and we would stay at this apartment again in a heartbeat.
We stayed in this unit for 6 nights and had no major problems. The unit was clean and had an unbeatable view. The beach nearby is very nice. Our only issues were the building itself, the elevators occasionally did not work. They appeared to call a technician the third or fourth day we were there and there did not seem to be any problems after that. The area we were staying in offered easy access to the ferry and bio-luminescent bay in Fajardo (about 30 minutes), the rain forest (about 20 minutes) and San Juan (about 45 minutes).
We had a great stay at the apartment in Luquillo! We chose to stay there much because of the picture of the view from the balcony and we are happy to say that the view was even better :) Overall I would say that the apartment was much nicer than the pictures showed; clean, spacious, good standard bath and kitchen and a great balcony. In short:
+ Apt (even) nicer than in the pictures.
+ Corner apt which allowed the air to run through the apt like a natural fan.
+ The owners were very easy to have to do with.
+ Close to SJ, Fajardo, the rainforest and other sites.
+ Walking distance from the best beach in the area.
- The beach just outside was maybe not the nicest.
- Rainforest was very nearby and there is a reason they call it a RAINforest, i.e. the weather wasn't as good as if you would be just 1 hour or so further away from tha rainforest.
- Maybe a strange thing to comment on but I found it quite strange and annoying that toilet paper was not included in a short term (5 nights) rental. Such an easy and cheap thing for the owners to provide and a hastle for us to by when in town for a few nights.
Overall a great place and great people!
