Amazing villa retreat!
Amazing villa retreat!
This magnificent villa is located in the quiet mountain town of Adjuntas, Puerto Rico. Once you make your way up the gated driveway you are greeted by a lusciously landscaped yard that wraps around the whole compound. It's filled with beautiful fruiting trees, flowers, and a great view of the "Sleeping Giant" mountain. We were greeted by the sweetest caretaker named Tita, who is a marvelous cook and knows the surrounding Adjuntas area very well. The actual house has a great dining area, plenty of rooms and bathrooms, and an amazing wrap around deck of nearly the whole house. We very much enjoyed having drinks, listening to music, dancing, and playing dominoes on the deck nearly every night! The surrounding area of Adjuntas has many amazing places to visit, including waterfalls where you can go cliff jumping, a very nice plaza within walking distance, many restaurants and shops, and amazing nightlife in the nearby town of Ponce. Overall my friends and I had an amazing time at this rental and the owner made sure that we had everything we needed. He is very accommodating of all his guests and I would absolutely recommend this place to future visitors of Puerto Rico.

This beautiful villa puts you in a tree island in the middle of the town of Adjuntas. The land is very well.maintained with fruits, palms, and even animals in a caged area. All necessities are within walking distance, including the towns main plaza (which is very nice). The landlady, Tita, is extremely friendly and generous with her time... She will show you around the town, introduce you to people and take you to a beautiful waterfall! This region of Puerto Rico should not be overlooked...incredible vantage points everywhere. AND food here was excellent.

My husband and I have been to Puerto Rico many times in our lifetimes. Staying at Villa Mary was unique and enjoyable. This trip will not fade in our memories. Villa Mary is a compound that should be classified as an historic landmark. We were greated by our gracious host, Tita, who was there if we needed anything. The property listing and photos accurately described the rental, the property was clean and well maintained, the owner was very helpful, and I would recommend this property to friends and relatives. The bathrooms at the Villa were functional and when they are updated from the '60, this Villa will become outstanding. We spent our mornings and evenings sitting outside on a beautiful balcony surrounded by gorgeous tropical gardens. During the day we traveled through the mountains to Rincon for a beautiful lunch at the Horned Dorset Primavera (highly recommend a visit without having to spend mucho dollars to stay at the facility), visited the Aricebo Observatory, and journeyed to Ponce to see family. The town of Adjuntas is very beautiful as well. We then left Villa Mary and stayed in El Convento in Old San Juan. We played in the ocean and pool, had wonderful meals, and departed for home smiling and content. Villa Mary is comfortable and safe. The island has been hit hard by the global economic crisis with high unemployment, so as with anywhere in this world, be aware of the circumstances. Knowing the island very well, we did feel very safe and were safe in this secluded historic villa. Upon arrival, read some of the writings in the Villa Mary journal. Many many other people have enjoyed their stay at the Villa and their documented experiences at the Villa are expressed sincerely and artfully. It sets the stage for your enchanting visit.
