Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms,2 Bathrooms,sleeps 6, Peaceful Cozy Lake House In The Mou

Surrounded by nature in the peaceful mountains of Utuado, a town in the central region of Puerto Rico, you will find Casa Lago...In this neat and beautifully decorated Lake House, can sleep up to six persons. It has three bedrooms with queen size beds, two full bathrooms, (one bedroom is a family room with TV and a fold-out couch/sofa that can be used as a queen size bed ); all rooms with linens and towels. This two story wooden house has also a fully equipped kitchen. It also has a dining room,, living room, and a large terrace with a hammock that will tempt you for a daily nap, or simply relax while enjoying a nice view of the Caonillas Lake. Most of the time we have a cool breeze weather, although, there are six ceiling fans in the house that will make it more comfortable for you, if needed.

In the lower level of the house there's another terrace and a laundry area with washer. In our large patio, there's a big gazebo with two half bathrooms and plenty of chairs and tables to gather your party and enjoy a charcoal BBQ; all under the shade of bamboo trees.

Begin your day with an aromatic coffee while the morning fog still covers the lake, or prepare a fresh fruit salad with bananas,papayas, mangoes, oranges or pineapples, among other fruits you'll find from vendors along the country roads. Since we are steps away from the lake,you can enjoy fishing from our private dock, kayaking and paddle boarding . For those who seek an adventure or like to exercise, mountain biking or an early jog are great choices to boost your day. To sparkle your evenings, we suggest a nice wine near the fire pit, while listening to the singing of the 'Coquis', an endemic tiny frog and cultural symbol of Puerto Rico. It just can't get any better!

This hidden little piece of heaven is a 1 hour and 30 minute drive from the San Juan International Airport.

While in the area, you can plan your visit to many tourist attractions known nearby, that will make your vacation a very exciting and special one. The Arecibo Observatory, is a 1,000ft radio telescope, the world's largest! It is used in three major areas: Radio Astronomy, Aeronomy and Radar Astronomy. This telescope has made appearances in motion pictures and television productions, as is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Caguana Indigenous Ceremonial Park is one of the most popular attractions in Puerto Rico. Here, you will learn about our ancestors, the 'Tainos' indians. archeologist have uncoverd many artifacts, petroglyphs, monoliths, and stone-lined areas that show evidence of occupation which may date from the year 1000-1100ad, to the beginning of the 15TH century. This spirited and mystical museum-park is said to be one of the most important Taino-Culture archeological sites in the antilles today. The Batey Zipline Adventure Park, is another way to explore nature while experiencing a day full of adventure like hiking, rappelling, underground river caves or horseback ridding. Besides the Caonillas Lake, Utuado also features the Dos Bocas Lake. As you reach the main dock (embarcadero), you may choose a free scenic boat ride that will take you to the restaurants and enjoy the delicious puerto rican cuisin. Puerto Rico is also famous for its coffee, so we suggest a visit to Hacienda San Pedro, a coffee plantation in the nearby town of Jayuya. And of course, in Utuado you will find supermarkets, pharmacies, gas station, bakeries, banks and other business location for your convenience.

Once you book a rental in Casa Lago you will receive by e-mail a more complete information guide of things to do or places to visit including addresses, phone numbers and websites; as well as easy indications to follow, that will lead you as you drive all the way to the lake house. ( We are located on road #140, Km. 26.9, Caonillas, Utuado, PR).

** Check-in at 1:00pm & Check-out at 11:00am.

*** ( Please note that the use of jet skis or practicing water skiing in any lake of Puerto Rico , is prohibited by local laws. Most of our lakes, including the Caonillas Lake, are man made projects that are very deep and may have steep shores and rocks.Therefore, the use of the lake will be at the guest's own risk and must sign a release and wear a life vest (we supply). Children must be under the supervision of an adult at all time. Swimming or diving in to the lake are activities we do not recommend or encourage our guest's to do !!

Why Pedro Velez chose Puerto Rico

This house is my dream come true! Since I bought it, I started restoring it to make it our 'special place'. Joined by my wife and daughter, as well as family members and friends, here we really spend quality time. It is common that visitors and friends end up staying overnight. Maybe is because the beauty and relaxed atmosphere you'll experience once here, but they simply don't want to leave; and I don't blame them at all ! Now, I am more than happy to open the doors of my home and share with others this great place.

What makes this chalet unique

The beauty of the nature that surrounds this wooden Lake Front House, combined with the peaceful and country sights Utuado has to offer.

A nice break from the big cities

  • 5 of 5

A peaceful ambiance, perfect for yoga and meditation, on a splendid location, this property is perfect for two couples seeking refuge from a busy city life. Plenty of entertainment, including two double and one single kayak, fishing rods and a paddle surf board for the lake, plus a pool table and more. The house is in pristine condition and offers beautiful views of Lake Caonillas, highly recommended.

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 4 of 5

Everything was as advertised. Plenty of space for the 4 of us. There was no need for air conditioning with the fans during the day and opened windows at night. The guys fished every day before or after our outings and had a great time. Be prepared for winding crazy roads with dogs, chickens, parked cars around every corner. We didn't have cell service at Casa Lago (but I noticed that Pedro did, he had At&t), and I was perfectly OK with that. Be sure to have a good map because GPS didn't always get us where we wanted to go. Pedro has a drawer full of tourist ideas but I fear we wore out his map. This was by far the best rental we have had and top 2 for vacations. We will definitely return to Puerto Rico again and will stay at Casa Lago. Thank you Pedro for sharing your beautiful Lake House with us.

Excelente estadía!

  • 5 of 5

Excelente y muy acogedora. La Casa Lago brinda la oportunidad de alejarte del bullicio de la ciudad y el estrés diario. Magnifica para compartir en familia. Su dueño, Pedro, se esmera por exceder las expectativas. Sin duda, la recomendamos y volveríamos a repetir la experiencia.

Spectacular..

  • 5 of 5

What a spectacular property! Ideal to escape from the routine (from the electronics!). Bring enough food, ice, beverages, because once there you will not want to leave. We had the opportunity to enjoy the rain from the terrace, the sun from the deck, loved the kayaks, fishing , the pool table, the hammocks, bbq every day, marshmallows around the fire pit. Our group had two adults, one 18-year old and three 10-year old... we all had a blast. We also enjoyed the company of "Chico" who also entertained our dogs. Definitely will repeat. Pedro, take note! :)
