The interior of Casa de Loma was recently redecorated to reflect the architecture of historic Puerto Rico. (For a full "House Tour" see our Home Page link below.) Throughout our three bedroom home, a motif of archways was used in combination with Caribbean colors to create an inviting and relaxing feel in every room. A large, gracious porch provides a shady retreat all day and allows dining with a view. Two large tiled bathrooms are equipped with modern fixtures and showers. In the comfortable well-ventilated bedrooms, all beds are new and each room has its own ceiling fan. The house has ample parking, an emergency water supply, and a large yard with citrus, palm and flowering trees. If in season, feel free to pick your morning grapefruit.
The comfortable living room with white archways surrounded by faux stucco finish reflects the architecture of old San Juan. Twin modern love seats, with colorful wicker side chairs can easily be arranged to comfortably seat up to 8. A TV with Satellite Service offers 4 major US networks in English,plus other stations; a radio/CD/Tape player, and ceiling fans are all provided for your enjoyment.

One of these bedrooms has two twin beds and walls decorated in "Hibiscus" pink. The other bedroom is painted in a bright, "Caribbean Sea" blue and features a double bed and windows on two walls.
A full-size dining area includes a table for six with comfortable chairs so that you can relax over a leisurely meal. The front porch overlooks the hills of Las Piedras, providing a quiet place to read and relax.

We often dine on the porch to view the pleasant pastoral setting and to enjoy the evening breezes.
Casa de Loma, is in Las Piedras, Puerto Rico. Las Piedras is a suburban community high in the hills just west of Humacao. The house is a 45 minute drive from Puerto Rico's Luis Munoz Marin International Airport in San Juan. It is situated more than 1000 feet above sea level, overlooking striking vistas, including rugged mountain ridges, pasture lands and neighborhoods of Caribbean/Spanish architecture. The vacation rental surroundings are lush, verdant and tropical. Palms, citrus trees and yucca plants abide. Flowering bougainvillea, poinsettia, flamboyant and hibiscus color the hillsides. On a clear morning, as you descend the hill to town, your views will include spectacular vistas of the El Yunque Rainforest summits.
