About Yvonne and Jose Arturo Morell
Greetings to our guests, beeing a culturally mixed couple Puertorican and Swiss, we love to spend our holidays in Puerto Rico. We love our house at the foothills of El Yunque as it reminds us of colonial homes with porches all around it, with breathtaking views to El Yunque (the national rainforest) which gives our place a peaceful natural feel... exactly what we like. We would like to share our home with our family, friends, and guests from all over the world to enjoy a peaceful moment to read, listen to the forest, talk through the night on the porch or to have a quiet romantic holiday. We hope you will enjoy discovering this beautiful island, and have a wonderful vacation.
Yvonne and Jose Arturo Morell purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Yvonne and Jose Arturo Morell chose Río Grande
We enjoy the Caribbean very much, specially the freshness and diversity of the rainforest and the beautiful beaches close by. Rio Grande is also centrally located not far from Old San Juan, ferries to other Islands and many activities to do close by.
What makes this Villa unique
Quick access to the rainforest, or the beach. Private pool on the property and a big garden with tropical trees. Huge balcony all around with view to the rainforest and ample enough to sit, or lie, whilst enjoying the sea breeze.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
This home was perfect for our family of 7. It is exactly as shown a lovely 2 story 5 bedroom 3 bath home in a quiet neighborhood just down the road from the entrance to the rainforest. My favorite things about the home were the pool and the large balcony that almost wraps around the whole top floor of the home. We had several family dinners out on the balcony, the breeze was so refreshing. Also great place to watch the sunrise over the mountains. The location was also a plus 30-40 mins to San Juan and 20-30 mins to Fajardo depending on traffic. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Yvonne was excellent with communication! Totally recommend!
My Family and I had a blast !
Beautiful House and Location
My family love the property. The pool was lovely the kids enjoyed every bit of it. The only downfall was it wasn't as clean as it should of been. It was dusty and dirty under furniture. The kids would of loved at least a T.V other then that it was a great experience and would definitely would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice place to stay. The owner where very nice.
Breathtaking location / Great host response!
Sunrises on the balcony that overlooks El Yunque rainforest are breathtaking. The sounds of the coqui frogs and night and roosters in the morning provide a beautiful backdrop to the scenery surrounding this property! (I even made several audio recordings from the balcony that I now use back home to help me sleep). Our kids had fun in the pool area, which was pleasantly deep at one end (about 7 feet) :) to allow for some serious jumping! The surrounding vegetation is absolutely gorgeous. About 15 minutes from El Yunque. About 15-20 minutes from Grocery store and/or Walmart. Great ice cream shop in the town of Palmer (Peccas)! The house was clean with extra towels and hats for day use! The A/C in the bedrooms felt great at night. Yvonne was wonderfully responsive to us not only during the booking and weeks leading up to our vacation, but also responded quickly to any issue that may have occurred during our stay..it was wonderful! Thank you, Yvonne, for making our stay a memorable one! Highly recommended location for those wanting to get away from the tourist areas and enjoy the nature, but yet be close enough to the sights like Old San Juan, Fajardo, etc.
Dear guest, we are so happy that you enjoyed the tropical forest experience. We also love the "coqui concert" at night and the incredible vegetation. Hope to see you back at our vacation home. PS:Just for readers looking at the review. There are gocerie shops close by just the big once are a 10-15min drive.
Tons of space, great location
This house was fabulous for our family of six. Plenty of room to spread out, indoors and out. The pool was fantastic and well-maintained and we used it every day. The porch is a wonderful place to sit in the morning and listen to/watch the birds. We stayed here for a week and visited Old San Juan a few times, the rainforest (super close), beaches, and more. It's an easy drive to many places we wanted to visit. Nice, quiet neighborhood, and getting to see the local wildlife in the yard—especially the coqui frogs that come out at night, was a huge plus. Thanks for a great stay!
Perfect home and location
We loved our stay in this wonderful home, the pictures do not do it justice. The pool was clean and refreshing, perfect after a day out and about. House is located in a nice neighborhood and has a beautiful view of the rainforest. Even though there is air conditioning in the bedrooms, I preferred to leave the windows open at night and sleep in the cool breezes, listening to the rainforest sounds. House is centrally located to many attractions, kayaking, hiking, zip lining, I would definitely stay again!
We are glad you enjoyed our vacation home. We hope to welcome you back some time!
On the foothill of El Yunque, national rainforest just a few minutes from the main road.
