This modern, comfortable Casa was awonderful retreat for our time in central PR. We loved the open feeling and wonderful cross draft when all the doors and windows were open. The antique doors and windows gave a sense of what it would have been like to live on a hacienda 100 years ago. The wrap around deck offered wonderful views at all times of day and in any weather. After spending a couple of weeks on the coast we loved the cooler nighttime temps as well as watching the occasional shower and mountain top fog. Although the property is gated and very secure, we loved seeing the free range chickens, cats, dogs, and even a couple of horses enjoying the property. The yard is large and beautifully landscaped with many tropical plants and flowers. The close proximity of the river, the sound of birds during the day and coquie frogs after dark completed the peaceful environment. The kitchen, bathrooms, and all the rest of the rooms that we used were richly appointed and very user friendly. We toured all the local attractions, the petroglyphs , Cemi Museum, Hacienda San Pedro, Pito Rico distillery, as well as many scenic roads. We also loved le Jayuyana Bakery on route 144, great pastries and wonderful grilled sandwiches at very reasonable prices. Econos was our go to grocery store. We found that a lot of people speak only Spanish, but they were always very friendly and willing to help in any way they could. This was our first trip to PR, but fell in love with it, and will definitely come again! The owner was very easy to deal with and very helpful in showing us everything to do with the house and suggesting places we may want to visit.
