About Yvonne and Jose Arturo Morell

Greetings to our guests, beeing a culturally mixed couple Puertorican and Swiss, we love to spend our holidays in Puerto Rico. We love our house at the foothills of El Yunque as it reminds us of colonial homes with porches all around it, with breathtaking views to El Yunque (the national rainforest) which gives our place a peaceful natural feel... exactly what we like. We would like to share our home with our family, friends, and guests from all over the world to enjoy a peaceful moment to read, listen to the forest, talk through the night on the porch or to have a quiet romantic holiday. We hope you will enjoy discovering this beautiful island, and have a wonderful vacation.

Yvonne and Jose Arturo Morell purchased this villa in 2011

Why Yvonne and Jose Arturo Morell chose Rio Grande

We enjoy the Caribbean very much, specially the freshness and diversity of the rainforest and the beautiful beaches close by. Rio Grande is also centrally located not far from Old San Juan, ferries to other Islands and many activities to do close by.

What makes this villa unique

Quick access to the rainforest, or the beach. Private pool on the property and a big garden with tropical trees. Huge balcony all around with view to the rainforest and ample enough to sit, or lie, whilst enjoying the sea breeze.

Magical Rainforrest Dream!

  • 5 of 5

we stayed at the villa in Colinas del Yunque with 5 adults and one child. this house is wonderful - when it gets dark the El Yunque Rainforrest starts it's concert of Coqui frogs, birds and others - i fell asleep several times just listening to those sounds... the house has everything one needs and everything is in good shape. El Yunque Rainforrest and Luquillo Beach are very close by - lot's of nice places to eat in the area also - our favourite was

"Mi Vida Cafe" in Palmer -> the best burgers i had during our whole stay in Puerto Rico (with Puertorican ingredients!). the pool was a dream to relax in after busy days on the road. we did not miss TV at all - Radio and the sounds of the Rainforrest are more than anyone could ask for.

Yvonne was very responsive and helpful when we contacted her. We would definitly return to this house on our next vacation in Puerto Rico.

Thanks again Yvonne!

A Magical Villa! A Puerto Rican Jam!!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Yvonne,

I wanted to thank you for welcoming us at your magical villa. I couldn't even imagine how great the house is and dound myself and my wonderful friends at a fairy-tale rainforest, with all the necessities for a great stay.

Everything from the kitchen, the bathrooms, the pool, the bedrooms - everything was well maintained and worked properly. We had breakfast on the balcony, danced by the pool, and relaxed in the hammocks.

From the bottom of my heart - Thank you and Ihope to return to Villa del Yunque soon!

Nice property

  • 3 of 5

House was nice and comfortable, difficult to find the first day, also there were an infestation of roaches, to the point you can't leave the food unattended for one second because the bugs go in it.

Owner's Response: Oh dear....what a pitty that you did not contact us immediately. We have a pest control company that comes regularly as we can't stand any type of bug inside our house and roaches are unacceptable for us even in the tropics. We are sorry you had to deal with that.

Best of the BEST!!!

  • 5 of 5

Villa El Yunque is literally the best of the best! 7 adults- MORE than enough room!

Private pool, Jacuzzi, laundry room, WiFi, AC, gated! Away from the hustle and bustle of the big city! Close to the airport. PERFECTION! Fall asleep in the hammocks listening to the coqui frogs and the birds, I did!

Modern kitchen. Clean! Well stocked. Pack your clothes, thats all you need.

Looking to book our return trip with our kids..... Christmas Yvonne? Let's talk!

Best of the Best!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 7 adults from Maine & Florida who needed a getaway! After searching out EVERY rental property in EVERY spot of Puerto Rico- I stumbled across this and KNEW it was the one for our group! Its away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, at the base of the El Yunque National Forest- which is amazing. Yvonne gives spot on directions- USE THEM! GPS is great but Yvonne's directions are better. There is wifi- but it is limited. Cell service is spotty but you're on vacation. No TV- but who needs it! Private pool & jacuzzi- not a hot tub. Refreshing! We loved every moment!

The Villa is large. So much room. 3 large bedrooms on the 2nd "main living" floor and 2 full size bath rooms. Plenty of towels- and shampoo/soap/conditioner. The a/c's cool the rooms quickly but you hardly need them- we opened every window and the coolness from being in the mountains was perfect! 2 more bedrooms and a full bath on the lower lever, along with a laundry room complete this Villa. The veranda was wonderful- 3 sides! Coconuts & Mangos. Coqui frogs & tons of birds and lizards!

I WILL return! Take time to explore the local gems all over! El Verde BBQ was our favorite!
