About Socorro Medina

I'm a real estate broker and an interior designer in P.R. I love art, nature, music and travel. I will be very happy to host you at Casa de la Serenidad.

Socorro Medina purchased this house in 1990

Why Socorro Medina chose Puerto Rico

Casa is located in a peaceful gated neighborhood. It's close to everything and still secluded. It's like a private oasis.

What makes this house unique

The house is well located inside a gated community, safe and private area.

It is isolated from noise and crowded places and yet in a privilege location. Anything you might need is just around the corner. From the house you can easily reach local restaurants, gas station, shopping malls, supermarkets and main highways in just minutes.

As soon as you reach the place you feel the peace and serenity of nature.

If you want an active nightlife , it takes only 20 minutes to San Juan area.

This home was beyond beautiful! It was so inviting, comfortable and such an oasis.

  • 5 of 5

I can't thank Socorro enough for giving my family and I a beautiful memory of our stay in Puerto Rico. She was so sweet and attentive

to our needs. Great communication from the start, the house was fully equipped and a nice cold bottle of wine awaited for us upon arrival. The home had amazing art work and sculptures giving it such a unique feeling. The yard was simply breathtaking. I felt as if we were in El Yunque. Such an escape! Socorro helped us navigate through the island and we used her wonderful transportation with Elba to get us to and from the port to Culebra which saved us! Actually I was proposed to right underneath a palm tree by the clear blue sea! I will forever treasure this trip and we will definitely be back... thank you Socorro for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

i must say that this house one of the most beautiful houses that I have seen in Puerto Rico. I'm originally from the island and while I could stay with family this house was perfect. first let's talk about the host. Socorro was so nice and she was always available if needed. She gave great directions on how to get to the house, showed us around the house and gave perfect instructions on anything that could happen and what we would have needed to do. Now the location, perfect. It was about 1 mile from the supermarket, gas station. 3 miles from wal-mart that was open 24 hours. There were lots of restaurants within 5 mile radius. Also close to the freeways where you can take to either side of the island. Now the house, from the moment you park with all the vegetation surrounding it you are like wow. You walk in and it feels like you're in a house from Spain. Socorro has the house well decorated and a lot of little statues and figurines. It had a big kitchen and very open space. The pool was very nice and it was nice to take a dip anything me of the day. You will find that there's not much that you will need asides from your favorite things at the store as the house had plenty of towels, clean sheets, toliet paper, and everything that you would get at a hotel. Explore puerto rico as much as possible but really take the time to enjoy this home and relax when you're there. I would definitely return again.

Absolutely Beautiful and Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Although, my friend and I had problems getting to PR because of flights, Socorro worked with us. When we did finally arrive the place was spectacular. We explored and relaxed for 10 minutes and jumped immediately into the pool. The owner was readily available if we needed anything and there were light snacks available in the fridge. The place was perfectly located near some great local restaurants, specifically Orujo Taller de Gastronomia, for local tastes, was about 20 min away. The frogs, birds, and insects chirping at night was marvelous, it was almost like camping but luxury camping to be so connected with nature, yet have comforts. There is a gas station and grocery down the street, which made getting essentials like wine and beer simple to have by the pool at night. The house is beautifully decorated and looks just like the pictures. I have already recommended to my parents when their friends and them go down to stay here if they don't mind being a bit out of the bustle of San Juan, which is about 20-30 depending on traffic. Thank you for a wonderful birthday weekend away from the mainland of the US.

Lovely house but needs updating !

  • 1 of 5

The house was a good size for a family , ,but the appliance's are dated the fridge leaked which caused us to slip, the ceiling had a leak ,every morning the dining room floor had a puddle of water on the floor .The kitchen draws smelt damp , no kettle not sure how you made a cup of tea for breakfast.

No hair dryer was told to go to the local store and buy one, the garden is lovely but the trees need cutting back ,blocks all the sun out , we had a large tree fall down over the pool, which could have killed you if it fall during the day lucky for us it was during the night .

Owner's Response: "Come with an open mind and heart willing to enjoy your vacation without letting little things ruin your unforgettable moments". When I read this review I was trying to figure out what happened because from the beginning and until their check out they were very excited and pleased with the house. As I always do with my guests, i sent him several messages to let him know about local festivals and events that were taking place in the the area and he never mentioned any problems. We really try to rectify any situation during the guest stay, to ensure that they leave us feeling happy and relaxed. The small branch, not a tree, could not have caused any harm, did not fall over the pool, and it was removed immediately after his only call. As an interior designer I'm constantly updating the house and creating a relaxing and luxury ambiance for the comfort of our guests. After more than fifty ( five star ) reviews and working hard to become a super host i will continue giving the best service at Casa. I really love what I do and I enjoy a lot pleasing my guests. After an extensive inspection we never found a ceiling leak or anything that indicated that water runs along the dining room every morning. If that had happened to me I would have called the property owner. Our patio and pool area is like a little rain forest as well as an habitat for birds, we can't cut the trees as Mr. G suggested. Actually is the major attraction of our guests. Mrs. G asked for a hair dryer, she forgot hers at home and needed one because they were leaving on a cruise vacation the next day. I suggested her that there were nearby places where she could buy one, and yes we do have a hair dryer in the house for the use of our guests. Our open kitchen is fully equipped. May peace, joy and happiness be upon all us during this new year and always. Welcome to Puerto Rico and to Casa de la Serenidad
