Amazing getaway location
My kids, husband and I stayed at the property for 4 nights. We wanted to stay in a different location away from crowds and enjoy nature and thats exactly what we got. We had great family times inside and out of the house. The property lawn and space is very nice. We enjoyed the silence and privacy the property has to offer. We also did the Batey tour which we loved. The guides Alex and Javier were respectful, kind, funny, knowledgeable and experienced. Communication with the owner/manager was very easy and he was very nice and helpful. We loved the experience!
Beautiful, spacious house in a green setting that removes you from life's chaos
As soon as we arrived we felt nature's embrace. The house is set on a large lawn, surrounded by trees. There is a porch that wraps around two sides and allows you to slow down in a hammock with a book and light conversation. This feeling continues inside thanks to the high ceilings and open floor space. Everything was clean and we had everything we needed to prepare our meals and enjoy our stay. The rooms are spacious and provided plenty of space for our group of 8.
My only suggestions are:
(1) to have a list/map of things to do and places to walk/hike if you are there for several days and don't want to pay for guided activities every day. I'm from PR and had plenty of ideas, but I was hosting guests from elsewhere and they said that it would have been hard to figure out what to do if they had been on their own.
(2) To have a dining table with enough chairs for everyone to sit together at meals. We put the younger kids at the table, but with only 4 dining chairs the rest of us had to spread out around the house. This was perfectly fine, especially since we were only there for 2 nights, but it would have been nice to have meals together.
The above being said, we had a wonderful time and I have already recommended the house to other people. Also, the owners' adventure tourism company is the best! It is extremely well run, fun, and informative. And their vegan restaurant is so good that my vegetarian guests said they were almost willing to drive back to Utuado from San Juan because it was the most delicious meal they had in Puerto Rico.
Stay here for sure! You will not regret it.
Beautiful but hot
If the place would of had central air it would of been perfect
The best house + good price 💕💕💕
Love the experience + love the adventure using Batey company for the ario Tanama Adventure with 30 teenagers!!! The house is clean and beautiful to enjoy nature
It's great to know that you loved being in Utuado! Thanks so much for your visit!
Great place - Combine with a trip to Batey's!!
I stayed at the Batey’s ‘Home-Away’ house located just a few minutes down the road from the Batey’s office and the new cafe. Lush, green foliage surrounds the house and coffee on the verandah is a great way to start the day and the verandah is big enough to do yoga and stretches while listening to the frog peeps.
The kitchen is full equipped for cooking up your own meals however you should also check out the new café at Batey’s. It has fresh and vibrant dishes with local and organic ingredients. The mango and banana smoothie with coconut milk was the perfect refresher when I arrived and the bean burger after my horseback ride was the fortifying lunch I needed.
This was my first visit to Puerto Rico but it won’t be my last. Though I couldn’t bring home the warm temperature from Batey’s what I did bring home are wonderful memories of friendly and warm people who did everything to make my time memorable. I had a great horseback ride in the mountains, Jorge is an incredibly knowledgeable guide who takes great care of his riders and his horses. I didn’t get to the zip-lining, rock climbing and kayaking that Batey also offers, so I have to go back and I will certainly stay at the house but for a longer time next time through.
And for those who want to know more about the history of the island, a visit to the Parque Ceremonial to learn more about the Tainos is a must. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as I did.
Thank you so much for your beautiful words Cat, it was a pleasure having you as a guest in our house and in our horseback riding tour. We are very glad to know you had a memorable time here in Utuado and we hope to have you here again in the future.
Sending you a bit of our island's warm air.
The house is located in Angeles, Utuado, mountainous center of the island, just an hour and a half from San Juan. It´s located at kilometer 15.3 of the Road PR111, just 2 kilometers from the Caguana Indian Ceremonial Park. The name Utuado is derived from Taino word 'Otoao', which means 'between the mountains'.
Other Activities: Zipline, Rappelling and Caving
An ideal complement to enjoy the natural beauty of the area, it is a relaxing horse riding. To have that option available we offer horse rentals to enjoy rides in areas of the property. If you wish, you can rent your horse per hour, day or during your entire stay.
