Photos and Description of this Rio Grande holiday villa
Villa, 5 Bedrooms or 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, sleeps 10
Tropical Villa at the foothill of the rainforest and 5-10 min. to the beach (25 miles from the airport, 30 miles from old San Juan. Can be rented with 3 or 5 bedrooms.
It is a two story villa with porches almost around it. You can enjoy the tropical garden with a large swimming pool and jacuzzi. Excellent retreat for relaxing, enjoy nature, lie on a hammock, play dominoes, or jump in the pool.
Close to all amenities, beach, resorts, restaurants, hiking in the rainforest, and shopping.
We booked this home from 11/16-12/3/14. My family moved from Puerto Rico where I was born when I was 1 year old. I came back with my adult children, my mother, sister and brother in law to celebrate my 50th birthday and Thanksgiving. This home is perfectly located near beautiful beaches, great restaurants and within 30 minutes from some of Puerto Rico's most beautiful sites. We took a small plane to Culebra, rode a motor boat through the Bio Bay, went on a walking tour of San Juan, toured Catano where I was born, went to the Bacardi factory, went to several nearby restaurants and beaches all of which added up to an unforgettable vacation. This home is beautiful and spacious. We were able to rest in between all activities and enjoy our down time as well. The pool was always clean. Although we were provided telephone #'s for anyone we may need in case anything went wrong (including the wi-fi) , we never needed it. We will definitely be back!
Thank you Yvonne!

Our family rents a home every year in PR for a large family vacation consisting of those that live in the states and those that live in PR so a roomy house is a must. This house will impress you right away, the bedrooms are large with AC in each. The kitchen has everything you need to include a microwave and a large fridge with an ice maker. Luckily we decided to go to the house prior to doing our usual weeks worth of shopping because there were plenty of items already there. The picture of the pool do not give it justice, it was amazing and had lights for at night. My family loved this house and the location was perfect, El Yunque is literally in your backyard and provides an amazing background. We recommend Don Pepe for food, its a small restaurant close by. The menu is in spanish and english and food is great with large servings.
Hard to find. Lots of issues with the locks. Beautiful view. Great yard. Excellent weather. Hardly any bugs. There are not very good street signs, sometimes none, so it is hard to find places. The El Yunque Rainforest was breathtaking. La Mina Falls is a must.
I stayed at this house with my family in early March 2013. The house was perfectly located near the beach and El Yunque. Everyone seemed to have a comforable bed, the pool was awesome, and the decks surrounding the 2nd floor were awesome. We loved the extras like the hammocks, the grill, beach chairs, pool "toys", and the washer and dryer. The neighbor was really helpful and most especially, the owners were VERY responsive to any questions we had.
Overall we enjoyed our stay. I would say my only complaint was the downstairs was completely separate to the upstairs. We traveled with small children, so It would have been nice to be able to communicate with the others upstairs like an intercom system or something. Coming from the US, our phones did not work, so that made things a little tough.
Overall, we enjoyed ourselves, and if we would ever go back to Puerto Rico, we would definitely stay there again.
The house is great large rooms, nicely laid out and of course that phenomenal balconey running around three sides. The main living area is on the second floor, soconsider this if stairs are a problem. We rented the whole house, so we had all five bedrooms, 3 up and 2 down. Following Yvonne's instruction, I arrived easily at the house (after dark it could be a little harder to find the first time), two of our other groups used their GPS instead and were lost for a bit...remember that Yvonne's instructions are accurate!!.... but remember to go to the "end" before picking up rte 3 or you'll be traveling through stop and go traffic. This is a working class neighborhood with many very nice homes, some were being renovated at the time we were there. It is not in a gated community, but felt very safe. The house is fenced around the property and has lockable gates at the drive and pool area. The house was very clean, there were adequate towels and bedding and the washer dryer was a real bonus! The kitchen was nicely equiped with a good assortment of cooking items. There were some basic staple food items (olive oil, some unopened items etc) and spices on hand from previous renters which was great since we did do several meals at the house. The salt water pool was great...a little cool, but we quickly acclimated to the water temperature. We tried a few of the neighborhood bars and found them to be friendly and fun..at least on the nights we visited. There are two local gift shops, both are good but one is much better than the other with lots of local art and handcrafts so check out both shops. There are lots of other choices in the area as well. If we visit El Yunque area again, I would definitely stay at this residence. Yvonne was wonderful to work with on the rental, and Tim the pool man was a wealth of info as well.
