Our property is located atop the eastern side of El Yunque Mountain Range in Puerto Rico, the only rainforest in the United States Parks System. It is a 3 acre property with comfortable trails throughout that provides a unique respite and change of latitude. There is a large stream that is principally viewed from a spacious balcony and the sound of running water is a source of continuous calm.
The property is uniquely located inside the national park property and is very private.
The house is a casual and appointed retreat that easily fits six people, either three couples or a large family. Each bedroom has a bathroom. The kitchen is open and has all the principal amenities and equipment. Electric power is backed up by a full-serve gas generator so loss of power should not be a concern. The water source is mountain sourced and is deliciously sweet and alkaline.
Guests find it difficult to leave when their vacation is over. The home has been a memory maker for our family for nearly thirty five years. It was originally built in the 1950s but has been updated continuously. It is isolated and safe. The only entry is via the national park property and two additional remote controlled gates. A groundskeeper is at the property most days.
The full experience of El Yunque rainforest is moments away. One in particular, at the end of Angelito Trail, is very accessible via a short car ride and offers a rope swing into a blue pool that we love. A stroll on the warm sand of iconic Luquillo Beach is fifteen minutes away. The hustle bustle and remarkable history of San Juan is 45 minutes away via good roads.
We suggest a car rental for your time here.
You will love the sounds of the rainforest at night, a feature not available to the day visitor in the national park. There are coquís. Many.
Amenities include 6MB internet / TV / Satellite TV washer dryer / BBQ grill. Special arrangements for dining and entertaining can be provided for at the renter's request.
