driving directions from lmm airport in san juan to the gardenhouse- carr 3, km 73.0, 19 colcobao st punta santiago/humacao-

As you exit the airport take road #26 Oeste towards San Juan. Go*

until you see the signs for the exit to get onto road #22 this

will put you into a small tunnel and then you emerge and need stay in

the left lanes. Caguas and Guaynabo (do want) will be the left

lanes and Bayamon (don't want) the right lanes. The left lanes

of #22 will merge with and magically become road #18 heading

towards Guaynabo and Caguas and then again later merge with and

magically become road #52 towards Caguas. Go all the way in the

left lanes. Now you will be leaving the cityscape and coming to more

suburban/countryscape. You will see on your right hand side these

landmarks: the back of a Super KMart and then the back of a

Marshalls. Shortly after these landmarks will be your right hand

exit. Get into the right hand lane by these landmarks. Then you will come

to a part of the highway where the other side has a large line of

toll booths but your side does not have toll booths. Immediately

after is your right hand exit marked Caguas road #1. Take this

exit and it swoops down and off the main highway, drops you onto

road #1 in the correct direction. Now you stay in the right lane

and almost immediately you will come to an underpass and your crucial

entrance to Highway #30 towards Humacao. Now get into the left

lane and stay there. The highway #30 will go for awhile and then

will magically/merge with highway #60 towards Punta Santiago. Take #60

until it ends at a stop light.

Turn left at the stoplight onto road #3 heading towards Punta Santiago.

You will pass on your right a shopping plaza (walmart​, chilis, wendys​)​

then on your left sams club and walgreens​. Continue. Go several more miles

and you will pass on your right ​the nature reserve then ​the public beach of humacao,

then an auto parts​ ​store and restaurant.. we are located on the corner

across from th​at​ restaurant (homeplay) on carr 3. ​(​​if you get to the limon

restaurant you went a little too far​.)

we are the two story ​(coral,brown and white) ​fenced​ ​in house with gardens on the corner​.

you'll also see casa rustik on the opposite corner from our front gate.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: semi-retired, well travelled and wanting to provide the travel experience we've enjoyed. life in puerto rico can be idyllic and we want our guests to appreciate what the island has to offer. and so we opened, in one of the best locations on the island, a great springboard for doing as little or as much as you'd like on your vacation. ferry to vieques or culebra, explore the nature reserve, monkey island, rainforest, phosphorescent bio-bay, restaurants of every variety, beaches, snorkeling, available to you!

Why the Owner Chose Punta Santiago, Humacao, Puerto Rico:
guests tell us it's like living in a treehouse and one, a birdwatcher and photographer, told us he snapped 55 different kinds of birds in our gardens during his stay! keeps the flying bugs away! and the complimentary fruits of the season growing in the gardens are just for you! currently it's buttery avocados! we do this to fund our pet rescue and foster efforts. our quiet and docile pets are kept inside and are never allowed upstairs in your vacation apartment nor outside when guests are in.
