El Yunque House Rental Photos and Description
2BR + Loft Forest/Park Vacation Rental El Verde, sleeps up to 6; on five acres

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.

We designed and built the Rainforest Home over the course of several years completing it for guests in 2005. We add new features and upgrades of one sort or another every year and maintain the Rainforest Home with loving care.

Walter & Nilda purchased this house in 2005

Deep in the rainforest on 5 private acres, lush and tropical vegetation, cool nights and warm days, and the intimacy of forest life - all within easy reach of 'civilization' when you need to get there.

Privacy, nature, forest, spacious and comfortable, we could go on ... (check the reviews).

We had a wonderful time on our family vacation at the Rainforest Home! Being so close to San Juan, Fajardo, El Yunque and several beaches, there was never a lack of things to do. And lounging around in the hammocks was very relaxing when we didn't want to do anything! Walter and Nilda have prepared a beautiful home and we are so glad we found it when planning our vacation.

Stayed in this house with my family during the Christmas of 2004. We enjoyed our week stay. The house was very comfortable considering it is in the rain forest where it is muggy. The house comes with everything. We enjoyed the private location. This house is beautiful and well kept. The pictures of this house are nice yet when you see it in person you will be happy you did not stay at a hotel or a condo. A good restaurant with great tasting food for those late nights when you are too tired to cook down the road. I do plan to revisit this house again.

The Rainforest home is a great way to experience Puerto Rico. We are not folks who like staying in hotels that can be anywhere in the world and look the same! We enjoyed lying in our hammocks on the edge of the rainforest, listening to the sounds, and grilling our dinners and sitting on the beautiful porch (by the way, the word for charcoal in Spanish is "carbon"). You do need a bit of an adventurous spirit to stay here since there are lizards sneaking into the house daily and you are in a damp world of the rainforest. We loved the adventure! The house was well-stocked so with all that we needed, even internet access! Thanks for everything.

Our Stay in your beautiful home in Puerto Rico was utterly fantastic. The house is second to none. We highly recomend it to anyone to anyone who likes their privay as we do. We like to rent homes and Condos when we travel and a lot of the times the pictures do not show the true condition of the properties but your pics were BANG ON in fact if anything they under estimate the true beauty of the house and property. The home creates one of those lasting life time memories that not many trip accomodations can do. Truly a Garden of Eden. Thank you for making our stay in Puerto Rico a truly enjlyable experience.

WOW! What a perfect home! Four of us spent 4 nights there and fell in love with it and didn't want to leave! We will definetly be back. It was so beautiful and peaceful.....and the night sounds were amazing.
All the info Walter and Nilda provided was very helpful. We visited several beaches and spent a day hiking ElYunque. The house is so secluded, yet the beaches and sites are all very close by.
I can't wait to return!!! Thanks so very much Walter and Nilda!

Walter & Nilda:

My most sincere thanks for the opportunity to vacation on such a lovely and wonderful house. I must say that I have never in my life stayed in such a secluded, out of everything home, but the experience was definitely memorable. You have a wonderful home and I could not get enough of the tranquility the house provided.

I must say that trying to find the house was an utmost adventure, but nonetheless we found it. Falling asleep to the singing of the coquises and waking to the sound of the surrounding wildlife was definitely out of the ordinary. I couldn't have found a better house [thanks to you making it available for tourist like myself].

Although I didn't get to meet Pipo personally, I did speak to him on the phone and he made himself available to us if anything was needed.
I must say the house was completely equipped with everything, and you guys have done a great job in keeping it stocked and supplied.

Once again, thank so very much and I really do look forward to visiting again in the very near future. Keep up the wonderful work with the house.

Best regards, Norma Torres & Family
