About jo scheer

I am a bamboo enthusiast/builder/artist/designer. Our former sugar cane plantation is now 12acres of sustainable, permaculture, including gardens, 35 species of bamboo, tropical hardwoods, fruit trees, bananas, mangoes, and papaya. I designed and built the pre-fab bamboo treehouses, we call hooches, as well as the bamboo furniture, lighting , and architectural details.

jo scheer purchased this cottage in 1992

Why jo scheer chose Puerto Rico

I bought this property to immerse myself in restoring it. Close to beaches and town, it is distinctly rural, quiet, with killer views.

What makes this cottage unique

privacy, and a back to nature vibe.

Great Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

The tree house was great. No mosquitoes which was a great surprise. We arrived early in the day and they showed us how to get to the tree house then we went back into town and didn't return till after dark. Little difficult to get to tree house after dark but made for fun adventure. They have a cat that seemed to know right where we needed to go which was kinda cool. Great stay. Fun for everyone. Slept great wasn't to hot or cold. Little light down the path would be nice but we signed up for a tree house out in the woods so no complaints really.
