Peaceful Secluded Apartment W/ View And Waterfall Family Friendly
Wanting to share our 'little piece of heaven' with others, here the peaceful, mountaintop guestroom offers two full size beds with natural hardwood headboards and a private bathroom with shower, sink and toilet. Private full kitchen with Lani. The property here is so beautiful we think you will want to spend most of your time outdoors. The guestroom is clean, and calming with its own private entrance. Refreshing island feel with a taino indian influence although the room is long and narrow there is plenty of space to relax and unwind. Linens, towels, pillows, beach towels and fans supplied. Also additional outdoor solar shower is available. Our home is nestled on 7 acres in the foothills above Sabana Grande, surrounded by coconut, mango, orange and avocado trees.
While here don’t miss out on hiking nature trails, exploring the flora and fauna and then cool off at la palooa (the river below the house); experience private natural waterfalls, swimming holes and rock formations.
Enjoy your breakfast with a view perched upon your private shaded terrace overlooking the valley below. Then at the end of the day just kick back and bask in the beautiful sunsets.
Give yourself a break with the peace and tranquility you need from the hustle and bustle of corporate life. We invite you to experience the quiet beauty of the countryside, while still within the tropical climate, near the beach and not too far from everything Puerto Rico has to offer. We are in the mountains, where nature and life mix, you might see an occasional spider or other small bugs.

About Ann & Allen Bingham
The Bingham Family Nature lovers, relocated from Eastern Washington. We came to Puerto Rico with a wealth of experience, from hotel and restaurant skills to down on the farm home cooking, and started the Bed and Breakfast, we have spent two glorious years here in Puerto Rico and because of unforeseen circumstance we have to temperately return to Washington - we have reliable property managers who will have your room clean and ready for your arrival. So we are not able at this time to offer the breakfast service but both our units have complete kitchens for your food prep and an awesome outdoor shared grill (if both units are occupied).
Ann & Allen Bingham purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Ann & Allen Bingham chose Torre
We found the setting to be unique, with forest to explore, waterfall and swimming holes it just seemed like paradise to us. the house was constructed by an American with breathtaking garden pathways and views we were given the opportunity to purchase this home. we have added an outdoor shower and private guest patio; along with the full kitchen and remodel of the guest room. A newly added BBQ area is sure to please
What makes this Apartment unique
Quite, secluded and peaceful setting a place to 'get away from it all' with a great view, but not far from what touristy things the island has to offer. We have been having issues with our internet provider - so at this time it is best to say we don't provide internet - however if you have a data plan on your phone it works fine from our property.

Beautiful house. Area was peaceful and relaxing. It was a spiritual Retreat. Heather the care taker, was awesome, made us feel welcome and like part of her family.
My wife and I were fortunate enough to spend two incredible days and nights at this excellent rental property during our recent trip to Puerto Rico. We made good use of the screened in outdoor kitchen and living area and of course the grill which overlooks the mountain valley below. The view is stunning! We also enjoyed hiking down to the waterfall and being surrounded by nature. I highly recommend this property.
Quaint and rustic
This cute little rental is definitely off the grid. Great place to unwind and relax. Love the sounds of the birds and the Forrest. El Tigre was a fabulous guide to the la Palua!! We really enjoyed our nap in the lanai after our hike to visit the waterfall. Thanks so much to Dalton for his time and information.
Beautiful vacation place
We have a wonderful vacation in this beautiful house! We only regret our stay was too short! The owners provided detailed directions to the house, so it was easy to find. It is better to follow these directions, rather than GPS. The house appears exactly as described, very cozy, secluded and has amazing views. Dalton, the property manager who lives on property, is super nice and very helpful. You are staying in a guest house which has one bedroom with 2 full beds and a cute kitchen with a sitting area. The kitchen has all the amenities you need with an exception of a microwave, which would be nice to have but is really minor. There is a supermarket and a bakery with nice sandwiches nearby, all the necessary information is provided along with the directions to the house. We really enjoyed hiking to the waterfall and swimming in the pool. The hike was short and not challenging for us but you can always choose not to go all the way down to the bottom pool and take the upper trail instead. We highly recommend this place to everyone, you will not be disappointed! We would certainly stay here again!
A Quiet Place to Rest and Relax
First, and most important, this property is exactly as described, so I won't repeat the description or information found in the other reviews. This is a great place to visit if you're looking for a few days of quiet relaxation. Anne and Allen are great at communication so be sure to contact them if you have any questions. As the others have mentioned, Dalton (the caretaker) is very friendly and prepared to help if you need anything. This is a clean, well maintained property that you should have no reservations about visiting.
We particularly enjoyed our hikes to the river and swimming in the lower pool below the water fall. The last 100 feet of the trail can be challenging if you have physical limitations (there is a rope provided to help you feel more secure in your descent to the water; be sure to take it). That said, we also really enjoyed the upper pools above the water fall and this is a much easier hike. There you are engulfed in the trance inducing sounds of falling waters and birds; we spent hours just swimming, sitting and listening.
If you are so inclined, there are grills (wood and gas) for cooking on the patio area, which is also a great place to watch the sunset over the valley and distant mountains. The multi-level patio area is a very pleasant place to eat and relax.
We also recommend a stop at Ely's Bakery at the junction of roads 368 and 365, about 10 minutes from the property. Excellent sandwiches and baked goods that are very inexpensive. You should also stop for some fresh fruit at the stands outside the baseball stadium in Sabana Grande just after exiting from Route 2.
Our 4 day stay was the culmination of a 2 week stay in southwest Puerto Rico so we weren't inclined to leave the property to explore, although we did take our usual day trip to the Cabo Rojo lighthouse and Playa Sucia. Otherwise we were very content to rest and relax at this most pleasant property.
Perfect place to gather your thoughts.
As scientists we were after a relaxing, quiet place to focus our thoughts on the research we were conducting in the Guánica area. The Bingham's property fitted the bill perfectly. It was a great place to regenerate after a long day in the field and Dalton (who looks after the property) was always at hand in case we needed anything.
Quick access to route 2 meant commuting to our study sites was nice and easy. I'd recommend this place to anyone conducting research in the south west. Furthermore, Ann is a pleasure to deal with and was very accommodating considering the late booking request we made. All in all I'd be very happy to recommend the apartment to other individuals conducting research in the area. Thanks for the hospitality!
