Non Smoking Only:
You are welcome to smoke out side my home. Since most of my customers prefer a smoke free home, I must require a smoke free environment. If this request is offensive or above you, do not book with me. ...moreless
At this home you are completely surrounded by our mountains (mogotes). Round limestone mountains that are amazing. The view from the house is breath taking and the star gazing is beyond words. ...moreless

We treat you with lots of respect and care, so we expect the same back. You will enjoy your stay and the home, but remember it is our home so please inform us of anything pertinent.
-Do not smoke anywhere inside the house.
-Keep it as clean as possible inside and out.
-No pets in the property at any time, and if you see strays outside, we ask that you don't feed them as they will never leave and we want to keep the homes clean and allergen free.
-Please do not move our furniture, but if you feel the need to, put stuff back as some of our staff are petite.
-We do not allow parties, events &/or unregistered guests or visitors (including locals) without our permission.
-Some of these properties are ours, and several are owned by individuals, (many elderly) that have trusted us to share their homes with the world using our management and marketing systems. We only work with people who also want you to explore and experience some of our rich and diverse culture. Since many of these owners are elderly and all the homes are in residential areas, I encourage you NOT to book with us if you are not lovely, clean, honest and respectable.
We are honored you are considering us to help “host a life-time of memories”!!!

We encourage you to take a minute and read over our Activity Chart that will be sent to you by my lovely niece Katryel shortly after booking. This document was made to help you plan your ideal vacation,by providing you with A Few Days Worth of Things To Do and places to visit in and around the area. This document also offers information on how you can order authentic Puerto Rican meals that are delivered right to your door, and ways to book any one of the unforgettable Eco- Friendly Tours (hosted by local adventure companies) and information about the places locals like to go so that you can really get a taste of our rich & diverse culture.
Both the Ponce and San Juan Airports are 1.5 hours away. Aguadilla is 1 hour away.
Under 15 minutes from the home you have a small supermarket, post office, pharmacy, two bakeries a gas station and several restaurants. There is an awesome sports pub with a great owner in Lares (the next small town over), and we even have a small computer, internet & copy center in front of the local super market!
You can stop in Utuado or Lares for larger grocery stores or a redbox DVD before heading up into the town.
Many of our homes have hammocks, a grill, and all have basic cookware for you to use. We do need to know the exact amount of people and rooms you will use during your time with us as we lock rooms that are not in use. Since our prices are very modest, if your home has a washer and dryer we do not allow the use of these for stays under 7 days. Many of the homes have fruit trees, and you are welcome to pick the fruit, but be courteous to future guests. The garage is private, and my office is also, but there is a desk you or the kids can use in the bunk bed room.

About the owner: From a young age our respective moms frequently took us to this beautiful island called Puerto Rico. Although our families were from different sides of the island, we share similar stories of hanging out with crazy cousins in the rivers, adventures in the lush mountain surroundings with our brothers and going fishing at the beach with our vociferous uncles. Our fondest memories were/are sitting at the dinner table with our grandparents to hear delightful stories about how life used to be.
Several years ago I was presented with the concept of using my logistics & real estate background hand in hand by owning and/or marketing amazing homes in Puerto Rico. Since then I've been joined by my beautiful girlfriend Cathy and my lovely niece Katryel who both share my love and passion of the island and its delightful culture.
Why the Owner Chose Utuado: At most of our properties you can order delicious authentic Puerto Rican meals cooked and delivered right to your home by our family & friends. We offer several eco-friendly adventure tours (fulfilled by local companies), or you can just relax and immerse yourself in the local culture while creating wonderful memories.
We offer the ability to travel and explore the whole island using one of these homes as a base or several during your stay. Doing this will help you better experience our culture, and the islands’ delightful people. Our hope is that you fall in love with this enchanted island as much as we have.
Once you complete your reservation, Katryel will send a PDF that you will need to print prior to your arrival. This information includes detailed directions with GPS coordinates, more information about your stay and what we call our Activity Chart with lots of extras. The Activity Chart will help you plan out several days in our area with local spots to enjoy!
Upon arrival to Paradise, Cathy and I take over (mostly through text if you need anything). We, like many of you love to travel, the outdoors, to learn about where people are from, their likes & dislikes, but mostly what made you choose Puerto Rico.
Some of these properties are ours and several are owned by individuals (many elderly) that have trusted us to share their homes with the world using our management and marketing systems. We only work with people who also want you to explore and experience some of our rich and diverse culture. Since many of these owners are elderly and all the homes are in residential areas, I encourage you not to book with us if your are not lovely, clean, honest and respectable.
We are honored you are considering us to help “host a life-time of memories”!!!

The Unique Benefits at this House: Our neighborhood is just that. A community of people coming together looking out for one another, and very open to welcoming travelers from all around the world. Many of the locals that you’ll meet in this this area don’t travel much, so it is just as exciting for them to meet you as it is for you to meet them. Everyone I know is very giving, loving, genuine and humble, which is one of the many things that makes you fall in love with our beautiful island. I grew up in these lovely mountains with these amazing people, and It’s an honor and a privilege for us to share this part of the Island with you.
You will need to rent a car as there is no public transit up in the mountains. Once you book with us, Katryel sends you a welcome letter with written directions, GPS coordinates and extras. The extras is a long list of many things to do in and around the area, including local spots to enjoy. All of the roads are paved so any car is fine. The most you’ll find is some pot holes, but you can drive through or around them slowly and be ok. We usually suggest renting from Dollar Car Rental (Verdanza Hotel Branch) or any other MAJOR car rental company. If you are on an unpaved road, you are lost! : )
