We are in the process of getting it as we want it for all of you. We love to stay here and we want to share such a delightful place. This is a family newly owned business. A heaven sent gift at a perfect time when one of our family member survived cancer. Now we all work together and love it. Although we dedicate long hours to make this home a perfect place for vacationers, is like we are not working but sharing our time together and loving it. We enjoy this property so much that with just a glance at its beautiful view while we are planting, cutting grass or cleaning inside or out, just makes us sigh and thank God once again for the gift of being able to obtain and run this piece of heaven. Come and experience nature and feel the closeness of God’s wonders.
Lillian Santiago purchased this house in 2013
This property is a unique one having so much to explore in a nature environment. estanciaelyunque.com
The views of the forest, mountains, and through the valley to San Juan (especially at night) are simply fantastic. Sitting on the upstairs balcony in the evening enjoying the views and the sounds of the forest instantly became nightly ritual for us.
Lillian is an excellent hostess and did a great job of making sure we were comfortable settled in, and provided with all the information we could possibly need about the property and surrounding areas. The three trails on the property were all beautiful, and of varying degrees of difficulty, as were the nearby National Forest and waterfalls. The house was very comfortable, and the kitchen will equipped. Close enough to drive to San Juan, Luquillo or Fajardo, but far enough that you'll not want to do it every day, so stock up the fridge, settle in and enjoy!
We couldn’t ask for a more wonderful and pleasurable experience! This past June we stayed at Estancia El Yunque, (Host) and her Family were very nice, respectful, caring and prepared to handle any immediate situation that would arise to accommodate our every need. The home was unbelievably equipped with anything you could imagine to complement our stay. The Hacienda was tastefully decorated, immaculately clean and comfortable with a breath taking view of the valley (El Yunque), great garden and landscape. A very private, secure and remote location when you just want to get away from it all.
If you’re a dog lover you will feel right at home. These two sweet dogs are always on the premises. They are gentle and loving to its guest)! Both dogs did an excellent job protecting the perimeter of the property. Surprisingly there were very few mosquitos! Also, you will enjoy the sound of the Coqui as they serenade you into the night and early morning.
Internet service is readily available with no interruptions. Bedrooms are very comfortable and air conditioned. Please take time to enjoy the clean poolside mountain view and don’t forget to explore the walking trails. We truly enjoyed our stay at Estancia El Yunque a fabulous hidden paradise!
If you are planning a vacation to Puerto Rico we highly recommend Estancia El Yunque you will not be disappointed when renting this home. We thank you Lillian, we truly enjoyed our stay in your home it is beautiful….We cannot wait until next year and start planning our next stay at Estancia El Yunque.
May God Bless you and your family, and allow you to enjoy the true beauty of this home for years to come.
We recently stayed here with extended family and friends so rented both houses on this property. The property is about 15-20 min drive from where the toll road ends in Rio Grande and the road going up does narrow but we enjoyed the drive and just felt the stress melting away as we drove away from the crowded city and into the beautiful forest canopy.
Even though you are up in the mountains, a 15 min drive will get you to a great local place to eat or take out food (El Verde), a large grocery store (Ralphs), and many other options. Beaches are about 25 min drive and the property is literally inside El Yunque forest.
There are two houses on the property (the larger home and the 3 bdrm cottage) but they are far enough apart and each have a separate driveway so even if you are just renting one of the homes you will still have complete privacy. Since we rented both of the homes we tended to congregate at the larger home and it was wonderful to have the room to spread out and for everyone to have their own space.
The houses are well stocked, VERY clean, and both have such lovely decor ; you can really tell that the owners take pride in their home and property.
There are five acres to explore and even a trail that will take you down to a beautiful and very private creek. Even though we enjoyed visiting El Yunque the little river and creek here was such a surprise and so pleasantly peaceful compared to the park that we ended up spending time there almost every day.
My personal favorite spot though was sitting out on the large patio in the morning sipping on my coffee, while listening to all the birds and the gentle rustling of the trees. Everything here is so lush and green and soothing.
Lillian and her family (the owners) are the most personable and wonderful hosts - She gave us a great tour of the home and property and then followed up with a phone call the next day to be sure that we had everything we needed. Someone from the family is usually at the property working most days but they are never intrusive and you can see how hard they work to keep things up for their guests. It was great to have interaction with them as they are a wealth of knowledge about things to see, places to go, where to eat and it was fun speaking to them about island life.
Reservations were easy and they were very responsive to questions and e-mails.
Things to do: play table games with your family, enjoy nature in El Yunque Rain Forest, have fun in beaches, can enjoy kayaking, surfing, fishing, snorkeling, bio-luminescent bay, waterfalls, sailing, zip line, or you can visit museums, have fun in casinos, golf courses, or just explore Puerto Rico.
