We enjoyed our stay
Comfortable vacation home
We spent a week in this charming home. It’s location was convenient. The home was clean and comfortable. The pool helped make the home a great spot to relax and cool down in. My only suggestion would be to add AC units or a portable unit in the bedrooms. We found that there were times that it was cooler outside then inside.
Thank you for your nice comments; we are pleased that you had a great time.
Your comment about A/C is one that we have heard a few other times since beginning to rent the home in 2000. We know ( as we have stayed at the home many times in every month of the year), that there can be an occasional hot day. But this rural area, because of its altitude, is generally cooler than most of PR. Top that off with the large private pool, shady porch areas, lovely breezes and ceiling fans in every room, and we have found after more than 500 rental parties, that guests seem generally pleased and comfortable. Secondly, we have opted not to install A/C as it will drive up the cost for a rental significantly. We have two other rental homes near sea level and they do require A/C for guest comfort, but they rent at a much higher price. We do not want to raise our prices at Casa de Loma, as many families have told us they prefer "Summery" temps to higher costs. Make your next trip to Casa De Loma in January and you'll be pulling up the blankets at night to sleep! Thanks again for your comments and we do hope yo will return.
Great Stay and Experience

Home away from home and more
We really enjoyed are stay the home was all that was advertised and more hope to rent again
Had a wonderful time. The house was very clean and well-equipped. Had time to visit some clubs and restos in San Juan. Will definitely come back. Case De Loma was the perfect spot for our trip!
We agree! Casa de Loma is well located for may day trips, including: many different beaches, visiting Palmas del Mar Resort, Culebra and Vieques Island trips, El Yunque Rainforest, Old San Juan and San Juan Condado area. Glad you had fun!
The perfect home away from home!
We had an absolute wonderful time at Casa De Loma. We spent 8 nights at this lovely house in the hills being serenaded by the coqui. The owner, Jim, is truly a pro at this and the information packet he sent to us covered all the necessary details for finding the house, staying in the house, and enjoying our time in Puerto Rico. The pool and the kitchen were perfect after a day of exploring around the island. We could eat out for lunch then relax at the house, swim, and make a little something for dinner. The house was clean, welcoming, and comfortable in every way. We can't wait for another opportunity to explore Puerto Rico and stay at Casa de Loma again!
We are always glad to hear that guests had a good time in PR when they stay at our home! The best compliment of all is that you plan to return. We look forward to it!
