Why Pedro Velez chose Utuado
This house is my dream come true! Since I bought it, I started restoring it to make it our 'special place'. Joined by my wife and daughter, as well as family members and friends, here we really spend quality time. It is common that visitors and friends end up staying overnight. Maybe is because the beauty and relaxed atmosphere you'll experience once here, but they simply don't want to leave; and I don't blame them at all ! Now, I am more than happy to open the doors of my home and share with others this great place.

Incredible experience that will never be forgotten!
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon along with his brother and his brothers wife. This property is absolutely amazing! Nestled deep in the mountains of Utuado, perched on the shore of lago Caonillas; amazing views, beautiful music played by the wildlife, and surrounded by the most generous and kind people. My brother-in-law has a YouTube channel and included several videos on the property, fishing, local attractions, and amazing people. From Pedro’s awesome communication, we knew where to find many points of interest. His home is gorgeous and peaceful; exactly what we were wanting. We highly recommend Café Gran Batey, ran by the sweetest couple. There are many nearby waterfalls, caves, and interesting attractions. Still rebuilding many roadways and homes decimated by hurricane Maria, some roads can be tight and even rerouted. That being said, you are sure to have an amazing adventurous time visiting!
Thanks for sharing your review and positive feedback about your honeymoon trip and your stay at Casa Lago; it was my honor. Hope to see you again in the near future. Regards!

You can tell a lot of hard work and love has gone into repairing this home post Maria and we are very thankful to Pedro and his family for sharing it with us!
Far away from life in the suburbs
Wow! Words don't do justice to describe what staying at Casa Lago meant for us. From the moment Pedro, our very gracious host, opened the gate to his property, we knew we were in for a very special stay. The love and work that Pedro has put in restoring the house after hurricane Maria is evident everywhere. The gardens are beautiful, and there are so many places to sit and relax, from the main floor terrace, to the ground level terrace, to the gazebo, to the fire pit seating, to the chairs by the lake. Everywhere you look, inside and outside the house, you see greenery and beauty. The place has a way of engaging all of your senses in ways that you may not have experienced before. Nights in particular are truly remarkable, with the cacophony of insects, frogs and birds making you feel like you are sleeping in the middle of the jungle. We tried to take advantage of everything the property offers - we prepared most of our meals in the well equipped kitchen, grilled in the charcoal BBQ, ate dinner at the gazebo, played dominoes in the downstairs terrace, and laid in the hammocks in the terrace and the gazebo. We also used the provided kayaks and went kayaking in the lake. Everyone in our party, from 92 yr old granpa, to our 11 yr. old son, had a great time. Even losing power for most of one day did not take away from our enjoyment of this enchanted place.
Pedro is an outstanding host. He was very responsive during our entire stay, and worked very hard to minimize the impact of the power outage on us. Our only regret was having to leave, but we left with wonderful memories, and a strong desire to return soon.
Hello and thanks for your kind words to describe your wonderful experience at Casa Lago. Good to know that your expectations of spending some quality time in the country were fulfilled.
Hope to see y'all soon!
Everything we hoped for
We loved our stay at Casa Lago. It is so obvious how much work has gone into restoring the house and grounds from the ravages of Hurricane Maria. The house is such a lovely design and there are so many places to relax and enjoy the surrounding gardens. We sent lots of time lounging on the large porch, hammocks, and down at the festive gazebo.
Pedro was an excellent host, meeting us after dark and explaining how everything worked. He even provide me with goodies after hearing about my dietary restrictions.
We enjoyed our many excursions out exploring the area. It is so beautiful and the people so welcoming and friendly. We spent time visiting the bar and also the restaurant in the area and enjoyed trying out our Spanish with our new friends.
We found everything to our liking and hope to return in the near future. Thank you for sharing your lovely spot, Pedro. Give sweet little Chico a pet for us. He really added to the experience.
Thank you Todd and Jane for sharing your experience at Casa Lago and appreciating all it has to offer. It was my true pleasure hosting you as my guest. The doors of my place will always remain open for you whenever you want to return. Best regards!
