Property description

Enjoy a wonderful, low cost, Puerto Rico, vacation rental at our "House in the Hills" (Casa de Loma) on the beautiful East Coast of Puerto Rico. Located near Humacao, our three bedroom vacation rental accommodates parties of 8 people in comfortable beds with two port-a-cribs for twp tots. The large private swimming pool is set in a garden courtyard, offering privacy in a beautiful setting. Spend all day by the pool or travel the island to see its many sites. The choice is yours.

NEW SWIMMING POOL: We have recently installed a large, private swimming pool enclosed in a very private, garden courtyard. The pool is large enough for six adults or an entire family to enjoy at one time. It has lighting for night-time swims and is a wonderful addition to this cheerful home.

Our vacation rental is convenient to beautiful Puerto Rico beaches - such as Luquillo and Seven Seas; World class Puerto Rico golf courses like Palmas Del Mar; the mountainous El Yunque Rainforest - the only rain forest in US National Forest System; Day trips to beautiful and remote Puerto Rico islands - such as Culebra and Vieques; Resorts and Casinos; Amazing snorkeling and scuba diving; as well as the vibrant and historic city of San Juan. "Casa de Loma," our low cost Puerto Rico vacation rental, will make your dream Puerto Rico vacation affordable!

The interior of Casa de Loma was recently redecorated to reflect the architecture of historic Puerto Rico. (For a full "House Tour" see our Home Page link below.) Throughout our three bedroom home, a motif of archways was used in combination with Caribbean colors to create an inviting and relaxing feel in every room. A large, gracious porch provides a shady retreat all day and allows dining with a view. Two large tiled bathrooms are equipped with modern fixtures and showers. In the comfortable well-ventilated bedrooms, all beds are new and each room has its own ceiling fan. The house has ample parking, an emergency water supply, and a large yard with citrus, palm and flowering trees. If in season, feel free to pick your morning grapefruit.

The comfortable living room with white archways surrounded by faux stucco finish reflects the architecture of old San Juan. Twin modern love seats, with colorful wicker side chairs can easily be arranged to comfortably seat up to 8. A TV with Satellite Service offers 4 major US networks in English,plus other stations; a radio/CD/Tape player, and ceiling fans are all provided for your enjoyment. We offer guests a video library of more than 150 movies. Bring your laptop; there is a WiFi internet connection usable in any room of the house.

There is a full working kitchen and a laundry area. The kitchen includes a breakfast nook with a marble top table. Kitchen appliances include: electric cook-top range, double door refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, toaster oven, blender, and coffee maker. Complete cookware and dinnerware for eight are included. A small picnic cooler is provided for day trips.

The master bedroom features a queen-size bed, a large six drawer dresser, a plush side chair, and large tiled bathroom with a shower. A day and trundle bed allows 4 to sleep comfortably in the master bedroom. A second bathroom serves the two additional bedrooms. One of these bedrooms has two twin beds and walls decorated in "Hibiscus" pink. The other bedroom is painted in a bright, "Caribbean Sea" blue and features a double bed and windows on two walls.

A full-size dining area includes a table for six with comfortable chairs so that you can relax over a leisurely meal. The front porch overlooks the hills of Las Piedras, providing a quiet place to read and relax. Views of the yard include many flowering shrubs, banana trees that you are welcome to pick from, and an array of palms. The porch has an area that is large enough for dining. We often dine on the porch to view the pleasant pastoral setting and to enjoy the evening breezes.

Casa de Loma, is in Las Piedras, Puerto Rico. Las Piedras is a suburban community high in the hills just west of Humacao. The house is a 45 minute drive from Puerto Rico's Luis Munoz Marin International Airport in San Juan. It is situated more than 1000 feet above sea level, overlooking striking vistas, including rugged mountain ridges, pasture lands and neighborhoods of Caribbean/Spanish architecture. The vacation rental surroundings are lush, verdant and tropical. Palms, citrus trees and yucca plants abide. Flowering bougainvillea, poinsettia, flamboyant and hibiscus color the hillsides. On a clear morning, as you descend the hill to town, your views will include spectacular vistas of the El Yunque Rainforest summits.
