PRIVATE RAIN FOREST HOME IN EL YUNQUE, PUERTO RICO ON FIVE SECLUDED ACRES

El Yunque House Rental Photos and Description

2BR AC + Loft Forest/Park Vacation Rental El Verde, sleeps up to 6; on five acre

This beautiful large new, two air-conditioned bedrooms/one-bath home is nestled on 5 private secluded acres in the foothills adjoining the El Yunque National Forest rain forest. We are one of very few properties offering the actual experience of living in the rain forest.

Our home is an easy drive to the International Airport (SJU), old San Juan, the nightlife of El Condado and Isla Verde, world-famous beaches, golf courses, nature reserves, impressive underwater reefs and small cays - and of course the unique scenic and hiking facilities of the National Forest.

The nearby coastal area is ideal for snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, kayaking and deep sea fishing. All this is a short distance from the house while you enjoy sleeping in the privacy & tranquility of the cool night breezes in the rain forest.

Our rainforest home is fully equipped with washer and dryer as well as free wireless internet (speed varies).

For the nature lover who seeks privacy, tranquility and the lush environment of the tropical rainforest, you have arrived.

Our home has a unique 'open-air' design, so that no walls or unnecessary obstacles block the way of communication, natural light or rich, fresh air. There is a fully equipped and functional kitchen along with a movable island. Two spacious air-conditioned bedrooms are on the lower floor, one of which opens onto the veranda. The entire second floor is a wide open loft with two outdoor decks. The loft itself is fully furnished with four large futons that transform into beds.

Guests will enjoy peaceful surroundings, lush vegetation, siestas in the hammocks on the expansive porch, great back-yard barbecues, unexpected rain followed by radiant sun and blue skies, sounds of the forest (especially the song of the coqui, the tiny tree frogs that welcomes the rain singing in unison), a secluded walking labyrinth, and marvelous morning walks along our private road.

My husband and I stayed at this incredible home for a week in May, and I am so glad I took the time to research rentals. Not only was the house perfect in every way, but there were tiny, dark condos for rent in other areas for lots more money - plus add-on charges. Here there was none of that. Pipo, the caretaker, let us know that it would be no problem at all if we called him for any reason. Everything was so ideal, that we didn't even need to call once....
The covered porch was where we spent our time when we weren't out exploring the mountains and beaches, small towns and snorkeling trips. We never even went into San Juan, because there was so much else nearby...
It rained most every day for a time in this lush area, and we watched the jungle grow daily from this porch. We shopped and cooked and slept, and I could not think of a better paradise to be in....

Words Can't Describe It!

Words Can't Describe It!

We only spent a couple of nights here, but I wish it had been so much longer. Everything, from the initial contact to leaving the keys, gave us an incredible getaway.

First, the owner was friendly, accommodating and exceptionally responsive, especially considering we arrived on a holiday. He also gave us good tips for eating and getting around. Probably the best advice was to tour the rainforest on our own, which we did, and had an incredible time.

The property itself is spotless, well-constructed, and beautifully furnished; the pictures don't do it justice. You can tell it's well-maintained. Just to note, in case you miss it in the description, that there is no TV reception although the owner maintains a small collection of DVDs to watch, and while there is internet, it is very slow and spotty. But you don't go to the rainforest to watch TV and surf the web. And that's where the real beauty of this place comes in.

The outside property (in a gated community) is beautiful beyond words. So close to the beaches and kioskos of Luquillo and Fajardo yet so far away from it all. During one minor rain, I actually walked in backyard and videoed it. Then, that night, after a stronger rain, we were treated to the real chorus of life in the rainforest.

If we come back to Puerto Rico, we will definitely look to stay here again. And if you are coming to the are, do not hesitate to rent this property.

Thanks for a great time!

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in many vacation rentals and this house is by far one of the best we have stayed in! First off, this place is CLEAN. I mean super clean. For being in a rainforest with dirt and bugs everywhere, none of that was in the house. It was in a perfect location for us as we wanted to really experience the rainforest for a coupe of days. Beds were super comfy and we were able to cook some good meals at home. Walter and Nilda were absolutely phenomenal house providers. We had some car trouble and they were VERY accommodating. If we come that way again and wish to show friends the rainforest, no doubt will we be looking to stay here again! Thanx again Walter and Nilda!

A nature lovers retreat

  • 5 of 5
Wow! This place is Mother Nature at her finest. The home itself is unique and comfortable, nestled in the flora and fauna. We observed so many birds, butterflies, lizards, snails and insects from the spacious covered porch. The warm rain showers were frequent during our stay but only added to the amazing experience. Walter and Nilda were wonderful, leading us in and getting us settled. Our highest recommendations goes out to them and their beautiful home!

Wonderfull house in the middle of the rainforest.

  • 5 of 5
Nice and warm welcome from the owner. The house is a very well, beatiful designed, open space palace. Spotlessly clean. Nice furniture, good beds. Fans everywhere, airco in the bedrooms, but not needed because nights in the forest are not too warm. The hammocks on the porch were appreciated very much not only by our children (8 yrs and 12 yrs). The surroundings and view are magnificent. The coquis are loud but not too much, it adds to the feeling that you're in the middle of nowhere. The garden is beautiful altough very wet when we were there, it can get slippery from the mud. We did not care.
We liked to drive to Luquillo Beach, really nice, lined with palmtrees.
Also did some hiking in the rainforest, saw waterfalls, lots of ferns and palmtrees, fantastic views.
I think we were the first visitors from the Netherlands, Europe and we encourage others to visit PR. We will never forget our great time in the rainforest house.

Secluded paradise close to the rainforest

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this house for about a week in November and love this place so much. The house is well maintained and very clean. We enjoyed sitting at the patio just to relax and look at the greenery and listen to the bird chirping. The house is about halfway between San Juan and Fajardo so in the sense it is strategically located. We have a 7 and 9 years old and they missed this place so much. We plan to go back again in the future. Walter and Pipo is always there if you have any question. Thanks for sharing this lovely house with us.

Unique location adjoining the border of El Yunque National Forest. While in the house, you will enjoy the peaceful surroundings of lush vegetation, siestas in the hammock on the back porch, great back-yard barbecues, occasional visits by curious small & harmless lizards, unexpected rain followed by radiant sun and blue skies, marvelous morning walks along the private road, and the unique sounds of the forest. The song of the coquí will welcome you to the rain forest. They are the tiny tree frogs that, singing in unison, greet the rain.
