This property is simply amazing! We felt right at home and were super close to the best zip lining on the island. The pictures do not do this house justice! The house was clean and well-maintained! The owner is simply amazing as well. I really hope this secret paradise stays as it is for a very long time!
This property is AMAZING!!! From the owner who was very reliable to the house which is exactly as appears in the pictures "BEAUTIFULL". The land is so well maintained and lovely, full of trails that will let you explore and be in full contact with nature!! My family and I had a great time, enjoyed ridding horses and walking to the river and afterwards just staring at the stars at night and enjoying a nice BBQ.
I will definetly stay again and look foward to booking for a longer period of time to enjoy even more, and to be able to explore the near towns and atractions!!
This was a beautiful home. We loved the privacy and beautiful natural surroundings. We arrived almost an hour and a half late due to plane delays, and Abel was very gracious about the delay, and still met us at the gate with a welcoming smile. We would definitely recommend this home, and would stay there again should we get the opportunity to return to PR. The one thing I would say is, don't plan on getting anywhere in a hurry here...the mountain roads are narrow & twisty, and beautiful!!
Un lugar perfecto para desconectarse, descasar y disfrutar de la naturaleza. Queremos regresar.
My stay was actually in November of 2011, but my review is delayed. This house was immaculate, absolutely gorgeous! It is quite large with a pleasant wrap around porch. The backyard is dreamy, approx 8 acres of tropical beauty.
Unfortunately, we spent several days of our stay without running water at no fault to the owners. They handled the situation very well and checked on us daily bringing gallons of fresh water to use. Very caring people.
The property is a bit challenging to get to via a 15 minute drive through windy roads, but well worth it. Make sure you research the area before your stay to get the most out of it. There are many nearby sites and attractions well worth the visit.
Overall, I felt rich staying here. I'd love to visit again in the future! Great value!
Light-filled, spotless, gracious home with a view across the hills. The owner met us, provided coffee from his property, and gave us directions to many interesting nearby places to visit. Our family enjoyed walking down to the river, petting his horses and lounging on the porches, ad our toddler played on the children's equipment. A great week thanks to Abel Muniz Camacho
