Private, peaceful, surrounded by a beautiful forest, Garzas lake is 15 minutes away and Charca Rio el Ataud is just 20 minutes away!
If you want to be in the center of the action, this is not the place for you. If, on the other hand, you are looking for some cool, tranquil getaway in PR, you will be very happy at the cabaña. It is about 90 minutes from SJU over good roads to Adjuntas; we got coming out of the airport (my fault--don't forget the GPS), so it took about 2 hours. The owner provided great directions to Adjuntas, where we met up with the caretaker who led us the last 5 miles or so over narrow, winding mountain roads (all paved until the cabin grounds)--not recommended at night!
The grounds are beautifully landscaped and maintained. They are designed to maximize outdoor living, with a jacuzzi, gas grill, fireplace and outdoor seating under a large, tiled covered porch, plus some patios with thatch gazebo and a new treehouse. Lots of wildlife sounds (owls, frogs, etc.), especially at night. The house is rustic, but very comfortable, with small, well equipped/stocked kitchen, two small bedrooms sharing a bath, and a large master with ensuite. The master has an air conditioner, but we did not need it, thanks to the elevation and shade. The showers have hot water, although the sinks do not.
It may take a couple of trips to remember the route to/from Adjuntas. There is a decent grocery store, and we fixed almost all of our meals at the cabin rather than driving back from dinner after dark, so not sure about the dining options other than Burger King next to the grocery store. And, we didn't really want to leave the cabin.
There are a few other homes within walking distance, but you will have a hard time seeing or hearing them from the cabin. If you are really adventurous, you could try some jungle hiking, but it is mostly dense jungle and steep terrain. Walking on the road back out to the "highway" is a good chance to see the countryside in a non-strenuous way. The towns of Utuado and Jayuya on the Ruta Panoramica are within 45 minutes; Ponce and the south coast are probably a bit closer if you have the urge to hit the beach.
The owner speaks/writes excellent English, and communicated very well with us, in spite of my attempts to practice my bad Spanish. He is obviously proud of the property, and with good reason. My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the cabin muchìsimo, and hope we can return someday.
If you're looking for a private mountain retreat, look no further! Located about 20 minutes from Adjuntas, the cabin is a nature-lover's dream. After relaxing in the hot tub and watching the stars, fall asleep to the sounds of the forest.
The kitchen is well stocked, and firewood was even provided for the outdoor fireplace (although it was too wet to use). The furnishings were comfortable, providing ample room for 4-5 people. We spent most of our time relaxing on the front patio.
I would suggest including information about local restaurants and attractions in the instructions folder. Adjuntas has much to offer travelers but without internet or gps (which doesn't work in this region) but it can be very challenging to find. Directions to the lake, local waterfalls, hiking trails, and a bit of info about what to look for in town would make the cabin more of a vacation destination rather than simply a retreat.
Pride of ownership is evident through out the cabin and grounds of this wonderful piece of property. Attention to detail provided a comfortable, loving feel that makes one never want to leave. If it had not been for our guests, (who scheduled to visit last minute) we never would have left the grounds.
The cabin has everything you need and more! The cooler evening temps were welcomed with a cozy fire or a soak in the hot tub. Days were spent observing and enjoying the amazing flora and fauna. Long walks down the winding mountain roads were priceless! Ponce is just a short drive away and the beaches of Guanica are definitely worth a visit.
Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to the owners for sharing this special place with us. The mountain cabin has our highest recommendations!
If you enjoy nature photography, multitasking from a hammock, creeping up on a little lizard lounging in the flowers on the hillside, this is an extraordinary place. If you need a comfortable bed and appreciate a little luxury, this might also be your place. If you think an enormous covered patio is really cool, especially since it has beautiful patio furniture, an outdoor fireplace and a hot tub, you'll love this cabin. If you appreciate an owner who is charming, bilingual, available - but not intrusive- and eager to make sure your stay is a pleasant one, you'll like this location. We LOVED it!
An excellent destination to spend some quality time with family or friends. This place gives you a chance to breathe fresh, clean air in a warm and friendly atmosphere. The facilities are highly maintained and ready to receive visitors. Good place to relax and admire nature. Great for a romantic getaway!
This house was one of our favorite places to stay. It is in a beautiful setting with all of the amenities. The owners were nice and very helpful and we would highly recommend staying here. Pros: beautiful, private forest setting on top of mountain, Nice house with everything you need and plenty of room. Patio was large and comfortable with plenty of comfy furniture. Very secluded, totally private. My favorite part was at night we would sit in the hot tub and look at the stars and watch the fire flies. Cons: living room small, no hot water in kitchen but does have hot water in rest of house
The cabin is bordered by a national forest, a perfect location for meditation, relaxation, and rest. It is truly a treasure for those who want to be away from it all!
