Perfectly Unique

  • 5 of 5

I have used Homeaway numerous times. I bring a group of high school art students "out of the country" every March and look for a house, not a hotel, where we can have time together. Five teenagers and two adults for one week this time. The house was very unique, and in many ways, perfect for us. Yes, one does feel a little removed from everything else and it is a bit of a trek to reach a restaurant or grocery store. But you know these facts ahead of time. And the house allows you so many areas in which to either share time together or go find time for yourself. You certainly feel like you are in the middle of the rainforest; the sounds at night are like a symphony. It helps to know you want to sit back and take in the experience, that you are willing to slow down a bit and enjoy the setting and the company you have brought with you. The kitchen is next to the porch area where people tend to gather and becomes the hub of our activities around meal times. But there are many other parts of the house and grounds that are exceptional. This is a one of a kind house. We did have an issue one evening with the water supply, we told Ricardo we could wait until the morning to have a remedy. He was so helpful and had someone sent out to the house to fix the issue before an hour was up. I even left a bit of cash by accident behind which he found and sent back to me.

Thanks for the great stay.

Absolutely delightful

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 8 senior citizens from St. Simons Island, Georgia, who spent 4 glorious nights at this property in El Yunque. We are all nature lovers and hikers, and we couldn't have found a better place to serve our needs. Ricardo was a wonderful host, who met us at the house upon our arrival and showed us all around. We would whole-heartedly recommend this property to anyone who loves to be enshrined in a lush green surrounding with all the comfort of home.

Incredible, Ecletic and Unique

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Villa Pitirre. The rainforests sounds were heavenly. Spent 3 wonderful nights here with a few family members. The property was clean and very well maintained. I hope to be able to return. Thank you for sharing these wonderful piece of heaven with others.

Unique and wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Villa Pitirre was perfect! There was so much beauty and the home was so comfortable, we didn't feel the need to leave it! However it is close to beaches and El Yunque so we took advantage of the proximity to do a little exploring.

The Martin family was very hospitable and made sure we received a full tour even though we arrived a little bit late after a wrong turn! The family history is evident throughout the house and makes it quite homey and interesting!

We would definitely stay again if the opportunity arises!

Amazing stay

  • 4 of 5

The property was amazing. The house, the grounds, everything. It was peaceful and relaxing and the kids loved the foosball table. On the downside, it was at least 45 minutes drive to any place else I planned to visit, but worth the extra time.

Embraced by Nature

  • 5 of 5

We we're looking for a tranquil place surrounded by nature to stay with our family in New Year's Eve. We found the perfect place at Villa Pitirre. The owner and her son received us were very friendly. They we're just finishing the last details at the house, so the space would be in optimum conditions for our stay.

Definitely, Villa Pitirre exceeded our expectations. Everything was exactly as it was described. It was like being in a museum immersed in nature. Especially, we all loved, the terrace located downstairs the house. Down there, every generation enjoyed in different ways, the youngsters at the pool table and the fuzzball, the adults playing domino and the food lovers preparing the food.

We heard the "coquis", the rain and the water falling near the house, the sounds of nature, that we hardly hear living at the city. The house was cozy, well maintained and it has all the details necessary to have a comfortable staying.

We allready recommended the property to all our friends and relatives. We decided to stayed all the time at the house because we really have fun there and we we're looking for peace, so i't was not necessary to hang out. The last day it was very hard to leave the and go back to the noisy, crowded city.
