El Yunque National Forest house description

This beautiful large new, two air-conditioned bedrooms/one-bath home is nestled on 5 private secluded acres in the foothills adjoining the El Yunque National Forest rain forest. We are one of very few properties offering the actual experience of living in the rain forest.

Our home is an easy drive to the International Airport (SJU), old San Juan, the nightlife of El Condado and Isla Verde, world-famous beaches, golf courses, nature reserves, impressive underwater reefs and small cays - and of course the unique scenic and hiking facilities of the National Forest.

The nearby coastal area is ideal for snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, kayaking and deep sea fishing. All this is a short distance from the house while you enjoy sleeping in the privacy & tranquility of the cool night breezes in the rain forest.

Our rainforest home is fully equipped with washer and dryer as well as free wireless internet (speed varies).

For the nature lover who seeks privacy, tranquility and the lush environment of the tropical rainforest, you have arrived.


Our home has a unique 'open-air' design, so that no walls or unnecessary obstacles block the way of communication, natural light or rich, fresh air. There is a fully equipped and functional kitchen along with a movable island. Two spacious air-conditioned bedrooms are on the lower floor, one of which opens onto the veranda. The entire second floor is a wide open loft with two outdoor decks. The loft itself is fully furnished with four large futons that transform into beds.

Guests will enjoy peaceful surroundings, lush vegetation, siestas in the hammocks on the expansive porch, great back-yard barbecues, unexpected rain followed by radiant sun and blue skies, sounds of the forest (especially the song of the coqui, the tiny tree frogs that welcomes the rain singing in unison), a secluded walking labyrinth, and marvelous morning walks along our private road.
