                                                                        Eric s.

                                                                        A palace in the sky.... We came to Puerto Rico at a time of uncertainty. Carlos made me comfortable before we arrived and during our stay. He went above and beyond making sure we felt at home. He even set up a dinner paid by them on our arrival night!!! Putting my trust in him was a fantastic decision. You are the man Carlos!

                                                                        Frances- an amazing concierge who is there at all times. When ever we needed something or had a question. One text to Frances and she responded before you could blink. My entire group loved her. Also, the maid service was incredible!

                                                                        This house is out of a story. No photo can capture how amazing it truly is. The ocean breeze flows through the house w/its open setting. The pool is tied into the game room as if they are one. The views of the ocean are beyond distracting.

                                                                        This wasn't just any homeaway rental. This was an EXPERIENCE and a certified DIAMOND in the rough. Good luck finding anything better...

                                                                        Thank you Carlos and Frances!

The service and attention to detail is number one and the residence itself is top notch. You almost don't even need to leave the premises. We were 9 and there was plenty of room for all. And the view is unbelievable and the cleaning ladies were very helpful. You will want to find a way to come back to this paradise. What a perfect way to spend my 50th birthday. Great for any type of family. Thank you and we will see you again.

The gardens, the view, the pool, on the first day we didn't even leave the house because it was so spectacular, with so many places to relax and to explore. Service was incredible, many, many thanks to Carlos and Cynthia for an unforgettable week for our family.

Party of 11 - we all found ourselves with more than enough room on this 3 acre patch of paradise. From the sprawling pool grounds to the extended patio which comes equipped with lounge chairs, bars, pool tables and hammocks - you'll truly get your money's worth renting this villa from Carcol Che. Beautiful early morning and late evening views facing the Caribbean sea - be sure to ask for the 'Welcome Dinner' and 'Pig Roast' if you plan to fully indulge yourself at this amazing villa.

                                                                        Thank you carlos!

                                                                        Richard V.

                                                                        My family, 8 adults and 5 children, arrived at Caracol on Friday. After our long flights we needed a little bit of paradise and I believe we found it at Caracol. Carlos, a true gentleman, and his staff were amazing. Everyone was so helpful. The staff women, Mildred, Daisy, and Solaris, made us dinner twice and Carlos provided the wine. Both diners were excellent. We explored Puerto Rico a little, Arecibo, Bacardi distillery, and the water falls in San Sabastian. The kids really enjoyed the water falls, especially the rope swing. But, most of the time we stayed at Caracol. It has the feel of being in the middle of the jungle because of Carlos' landscaping abilities. Also, it felt very isolated. The beach is only a mile away. We recommend the beach at a resteruant named Tamboo. It is right on the beach and the food was very good as were the drinks. The accommodations were very comfortable. Every room had AC units so you were able to cool down when needed. It was especially useful when it was time for bed. The pool and the deck was the centerpiece for activity it even came with 3 rather large Iquanas. All in all it was the best vacation a family could have. This place is a real gem and Carlos and his staff are the most helpful and pleasant people I have ever met. Always helpful and smiling. We would go back in a heart beat and Puerto Rico and its people were also just as amazing.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        We love what we do, it is who we are. By the same token Caracol Che is a place where you can be you also. Very private.

                                                                        We are also close to the beach, a 3 minute walk, most of it parallel to the Caribbean Ocean. Hope to one day see you again to reminisce about your past in Añasco.
