Awesome location, comfortable environment.

February 18, 2015

We stayed for 5 nights and had an awesome experience. Apartment is right on the ocean. Ocean basically breaks into your backyard. Very convenient location about 1 mile away from the Kiosks and half hour from San Juan. Apartment had everything you need, chairs, coolers, snorkel equipment etc... Comfortable beds. Definitely would return to this property. Thanks for an awesome time. You may want to look into renting the top floor as it has a rooftop balcony with views of the mountains and the ocean. Not sure if it's the same owner or not.

Owner's reply:

Amazing View!

August 21, 2014

This condo was great for our vacation. We wanted an ocean view and that is what we got, we were so close to the water you can even hear the sounds of the waves with the doors closed. The condo was clean and it had everything we needed to be comfortable in our stay. It was also close to really good restaurants. Needless to say our vacation to PR was amazing and waking up to that faboulous view was one of the highlights of our trip. Thanks for everything Edna!

ON the ocean!

April 7, 2014

We loved this condo! Sitting on the balcony watching the ocean, listening to the crash of the waves, and being able to walk just a flight of stairs down to the water... Perfect! You can walk all the way to Luquillo beach at the lower tides. It's a nice walk to the river going the other direction. We were a little uneasy as we first drove into the neighborhood. However, we felt very safe there. The people of Puerto Rico are very friendly and welcoming. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well-appointed. There were plenty of towels and supplies. There was a nice breeze through the condo during the day and the bedroom air-conditioners were a welcome relief at night. Edna was available to answer our questions very quickly and went out of her way to make us comfortable in her home. We hope to return.

It's all about the Ocean!

March 1, 2014

Come to this place if you are on your Honeymoon and want total privacy in a wickedly romantic setting to enjoy awesome sunrises and breakfast with the Caribbean ocean at your feet. Or come to this place if you are retired, and want to escape to a warm and inviting paradise where the only thing you need to pack is a toothbrush, a pair of shorts and a smile. You might come to this place if you are tired of riding the elevators in high-rise resort hotels and want a more laid-back and personal experience. You could come to this place for a thousand other reasons. Just come to this place. Once you arrive you will know that it’s all about the beach, the ocean, the sun, and complete, total relaxation. The condo sits directly on the ocean’s edge. I mean –directly- on the water. The waves break against the seawall right below your balcony, providing glorious surround-sound surf continuously from anywhere in the unit. We have never slept so soundly, and I swear I had the most colorful dreams of my life here. The ocean is a mystical force, and you can’t get closer to it than here in Edna’s Bello Mar condo. Edna and David are most gracious hosts. You are not dealing with a time-share broker or vacation rental clearinghouse. Every detail of your stay is handled directly by the owners, and it is clear they take great pride in their property. The Condo was equipped with every imaginable amenity and convenience just like at home…. because this -is- someone’s vacation home that you are sharing. Back to the beach. This is the –total- beach experience. For 16 days in February we woke up after a blissful surf-induced sleep, ate breakfast on the balcony right over the water’s edge, spent the day in the sun on Luquillo Balneario Monserrate, prepared dinner in Edna’s exceptionally well-equipped kitchen, relaxed on the moonlit balcony watching the cruise ship parade out of San Juan, and went to bed to do it all over again. Sure you can visit El Yunque, and San Juan is a quick 20 minute drive from here. But ….. if you are seeking total oceanfront immersion and deep relaxation, why bother? Everything you need is within a two-minute drive; full groceries, Walgreen’s, and a variety of restaurants at the Luquillo Kioskos. Be sure to try Ay Bonito! # 21, our favorite. We haven’t even left yet, and already have planned next year’s visit. That’s how much of a warm and comfortable place for the Soul this part of Paradise is.

Been in Paradise...

April 16, 2013

My first encounter with this paradise was on 2009 when writing my book, Acto Sexual. Since then, every year my ocean and sky encounter while been at Bello Mar takes place in order to keep me going. Listening to the constant sound of the ocean, been just there, been able to enjoy cruises when leaving PR and to embrace myself with pure energy in the precise location where the ocean meets the river is just magic... is PARADISE. Facilities are perfect, location near everything including designers shopping paradise are just some of the amenities I enjoy.

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your beatuful comments. We both agree that this location and facilities are excellent!

Nice place for a family

March 12, 2013

Edna was very gracious with us and fixed the AC unit and internet when we had problems with it. She also kindly bought a spice rack for us. She and her husband were excellent to rent from. Otherwise the place is fantastic. I did not realize how loud the ocean is so shut the windows if you want to watch a movie, because you are literally on top of the ocean. It is fantastic to sit on the porch and you are literally 15 mins from the rain forest at El Yunque. Also there is a nice beach in front of the condo most of the year although not in the winter when we went. No biggie though you can walk down the street from the condo a bit and cut through the basketball court to get to the beach and the beautiful river upstream. It flows into the sea and has a gorgeous view of El Yunque. I have even heard in other reviews of people going to the pool and cabana in the resort on the other side of the river. You are also minutes from the main beach in Luquillo and tons of great restaurants which Edna helped us with. Also check out Fajardo (Las Cabezas) which has some great restaurants and ocean views. The neighborhood is typical Puerto Rico and like other places there are walls and a security gate. We walked around and everything was fine. Overall a great stay, a beautiful bay, and attentive service. Thanks

Thank you for lovely comments, I enjoyed meeting you and your family. The spice rack has been a hit!

A vacation in paradise.

March 10, 2013

A friend and I recently had the pleasure of spending two weeks in Luquillo at the Bello Mar 'Apartment of Edna Martinez. The pictures of the ocean view from the balacony don't do it justice. The ocean waves came to the property edge. We fell asleep to to sounds of the ocean. The sunrises were breathtaking as we did yoga on the spaceous balcony. AT night we gazed out to the ocean by the light of the moon. Edna made sure we had everything we needed as far as cooking , cleaning, laudry, towels,beach chairs, coolers, etc. The beds were so comfortable. The showere had ample warm water for showers.. We walked the beaches everyday enjoying day after day of wam and sunny weather.We were very pleased with our stay and look forward to another visit. Luquillo is a quiet, lovely vacation destination. The local kioskos provided temtpig delicious local foods at reasonable prices. Try the mufungo with creole sause with rice and plantain cups filled with crab. Vacationing in Luquillo at Ednas' lovely beachfront apartment was one of my favorite places to relax and enjoy the beauty of the ocean and Puerto Rico. Pass up the hectic crowded city of San Juan and relax at beautiful Bello Mar Apartments. Not having a car proved to be no problem as we could walk nearly everywhere. When a car was needed local taxis were prompt and reasonable. We did take advantage of several tours to the rain forest and Old San Juan offered by the nearby Rio Mar Resort. We discovered a small convienient store a block away from our apt. that offered warm breads delivered daily for breakfast. A small local resturant had tasty breakfasts, lunches, and dinners where we met many friendly locals. The mufungo is so good! I fell in love with the fried plantains and the Mahi-mahi . At the nearby beach we rented a lawn chair for $1 for the day, enjoyed shish-kabobs of plaintains and chicken with pina coladas in coconut shells. We feel in love with our 'home away from home" in Luquillo. You will ,too. Our hostess, Edna was very helpful giving lots of information to make our trip a wonderful time. The apartment was spacious, comfortable, clean with the best view of the ocean anyone could want!. Our two weeks went much too fast.
