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.

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!

FABULOUS Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 8 (5 adults, 1 child, 2 toddlers) and this home was perfect! Not only did we have enough space, but being a mist the scenery was wonderful!

We have tons of pictures of us asleep on the hammocks, barbecuing, or lounging in the pool. The only downfall was being without a/c in the living room, but by the 2nd day we had adjusted.

I was nervous about renting from someone in another country, but Yvonne was always accessible to answer any questions. Thank you for making our vacation so memorable and we look forward to returning.

Wonderful House for a Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

My family from Canada and Europe gathered in Puerto Rico for the holidays. This house was perfect for the 10 days we were there.

There is plenty of space for everyone to gather and have privacy when needed. We were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the amenities. The kitchen appliances were all excellent, the BBQ was large and worked well, and the beds and furniture were comfortable. The pool was clean and the grounds well tended.

The location is great. It is close to the main highway and on the edge of the rain forest. Visits to the beach, San Juan, and El Yunque rain forest are all an easy drive. There were lots of activities for everyone in the family, included those that don't swim.

Yvonne is very responsive before arrival as well as during the visit if needed.

Thank you for facilitating a wonderful holiday for my family.

Great experience with priceless memories

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home from 11/16-12/3/14. My family moved from Puerto Rico where I was born when I was 1 year old. I came back with my adult children, my mother, sister and brother in law to celebrate my 50th birthday and Thanksgiving. This home is perfectly located near beautiful beaches, great restaurants and within 30 minutes from some of Puerto Rico's most beautiful sites. We took a small plane to Culebra, rode a motor boat through the Bio Bay, went on a walking tour of San Juan, toured Catano where I was born, went to the Bacardi factory, went to several nearby restaurants and beaches all of which added up to an unforgettable vacation.

This home is beautiful and spacious. We were able to rest in between all activities and enjoy our down time as well. The pool was always clean. Although we were provided telephone #'s for anyone we may need in case anything went wrong (including the wi-fi) , we never needed it. We will definitely be back!

Thank you Yvonne!

outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the house for a week. Yvonne was very helphul and answered all questions.

Lying in the hammock at the porch while reading a book, enjoying the beautiful view; breath taking!

The quality of the interior is way above average: the beds were very comfy as well as the kitchen was very useful. There is even a huge barbecue grill to have an extended barby!

We enjoyed our stay in Puerto Rico: the people were very nice and helpful, we found some hidden beaches and enjoyed our vacation at its fullest.

Deeply thank you for let us rent this outstanding house! We def comming back asap!
