I moved to Puerto Rico to work at the Ann Wigmore Natural Health Institute (ten years ago) which is located on a beautiful beach. I opened two vegetarian health food restaurants in Puerto Rico. After several years of running the restaurants, I grew tired of the hectic pace. I bought and restored this beautiful home directly next to my friends at the health institute.
Tom Spontelli purchased this house in 2009
I love this property because it is located in a community of health conscious indiviiduals, and near a beautiful beach. The house is large and spacious and in walking distance of beautiful beaches and many restaurants. As well, as next door to a health institute which sells wheatgrass and sunflower greens and has many therapies available year round.
This is one of the few family sized guesthouses in the area that has whole house climate control air-conditioning. The warm tropical weather is fun to play in all day, but at our guesthouse you can enjoy family activities in cool dry comfort. The family can go to the beach or restaurants without having to take the car. Plus, you have all the benefits of a natural healing center right next door.
The large private yard is very jungle like. For many this is part of its unique charm. (If you are looking for manicured greens around the house, than this may not the place for you. If you have a phobia about bats, lizards, frogs, toads, spiders, or bugs of any kind, we recommend that you do not travel to the tropics at all! LOL
If I didn't have to give it a star I wouldnt.
There is a reason why this home's description was so vague. The property was not kept up with. The laundry room was a joke! Dirty, lots of bugs (inside the house also) outdated washer/dryer. You have to cook outside. Also don't even consider the pics of the outside, deceitful, broken chairs very unkept landscape. The owner got upset with us for calling him to ask him to resolve some issues. I wish we could get our money back. There are plenty of other homes to rent out that you would not be scared to stay in. Please if you are considering this home look at real pics and ask questions or just look elsewhere!
If you are looking for a real feel stay in Puerto Rico away from the city and you don't need to stay in a resort this is a great place to stay! The property is fantastic with all of the fruit trees. The owner Tom is PHENOMENAL I cannot say enough good things about how friendly and helpful he is. He gave us great sight seeing information and was available at the drop of a dime to assist with anything we asked - for eg. at the last minute I thought it would be a great idea to do a family photo shoot on the island I text Tom to see if he knew any photographers in the area within less than 30 minutes we were booked with a photographer for the next morning. GREAT GREAT GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!!!!! Pay close attention to the directions to the house in the guest book he sends out and use the GPS coordinates they will get you right to the front door!
Pictures just don't give this place justice! The outside patio lounge is a great private escape after the kids go to sleep, surrounded (and covered) by mango trees and tropical plants. The location is great with beach, restaurants, bakery, bars all within walking distance - highlight was the BBQ place DIRECTLY across the street! We maxed-out the place with 10 people for our stay (5 adults & 5 crazy children) and we were very comfortable in the house. In addition to a formal diningroom, there's also an outside eating area that accommodates everyone in your party. Kitchen is Puerto Rican style - split between inside & outside prep/cooking spaces with commercial stove/oven and more appliances than you'll need. Tom - the owner - is very respectful of your privacy, yet only a phone call away for anything that you might need (we didn't need anything). What a great trip!
The property was very nice and relaxing. A total break from the hussle and bussle. If you coming thru San Juan, it's a very long drive (2 hours plus), but well worth it as on this side of the Island you can visit the waterfalls and light house. Tom was very nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this property for relaxation.
Overall impressions for this house and property is really great! Our party consisted of 8 plus our pets. We stayed 4 nights and 5 days and loved every minute of it. Very comfortable and clean with everything we needed and more. The owner Tom is a wonderful person always ready to help with any questions. The beach is very close and we practically had it all to ourselves. Would recommend this property to everyone including people from the states, really tropical!

This large family home is located on a road with several restaurants within walking distance and is at the top of a small side street that ends in a boat ramp in the ocean. To either side of the boat ramp are beautiful beaches for swimming and snorkeling if the weather is calm. We are located about 10-15 minutes from many beautiful beaches from Rincon to Isabella, an area famous for its world class surfing competitions, scuba diving and snorkeling, and marine preserve.
Between this property and the ocean is that Ann Wigmore Natural Health Institute: a quiet and calm healing center where guests can book therapies such as massage, colon hydrotherapy, reflexology, etc.
