Top Notch !

  • 5 of 5

We were planning to be on Culebra for several days, and we were looking for something a little different for the last three days of our trip. We found it!

After reading all of the reviews, we completely agree with them and will spare you the extra pixels! ; -)

Our kids are 6, 8, and 10; two parents and grandma made six people total. Very comfortable. One day we headed over to El Junque, and the other day, the kids just wanted to stay at the house swimming in the well-maintained pool.

The transaction was very smooth on VRBO. The web site mistakenly added a few extra people and towel charges. But, Pamela noticed those and took care of them promptly.

Overall great place, and thank you Pamela!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Klumb is a beautiful, well-appointed home with gorgeous views. We only had four days in Puerto Rico, but they were four of the most fun, yet relaxing days I can ever recall spending on vacation. Everything is exactly as Pamela describes. Better than she describes, actually. The house is ideally located for excursions to El Junque, the beaches at Luquillo and Farajdo, and even a day trip into San Juan.

I planned this trip rather last minute, which can be stressful, but everything went smoothly thanks to Pamela who is charming and easy to work with.

Stunning location and home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this fabulous home. The location is fantastic and we felt at home as soon as we arrived. We absolutely loved the home. The views, and the layout of the home was very interesting and eclectic. Pamela has decorated the home with many local pieces of art work which enhances the homeyness and uniqueness of the home. We have stayed at many different homes both in the US and abroad and this is definitely one of our favorites. There are many wonderful places to eat in the area and also lots of great places to explore. We are avid hikers and visited El Yunque a number of times and found some great trails to explore.

Pamela makes it very easy in terms of pre-planning and she was always available for questions and anything that we needed help with during our stay. We had a brief overnight/early morning power outage and when we contacted her in the morning she immediately looked into it and communicated the status of the restoration and stayed on top of it. It was a pleasure working with her. Definitely recommend this home if you are looking for a unique Puerto Rican experience.

Stunning Property!

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely perfect property for our family of five (kids ages 15, 14, 11). The house is very special in design, decor and location. We felt so at home during our entire stay. The house is equipped with everything you could need and more! If you are looking for a private property with spectacular views, then this is the place for you! The pool was just recently redone and it was amazing...views to die for! We spent a lot of time poolside.

The location is very convenient to everything. The grocery stores, restaurants, beaches, El Yunque etc. are all within about 10-15 minutes. Overall great location... away from it all at the hop of a hill overlooking the mountains, valley and ocean.

Pamela was fabulous to work with! She was so accommodating and provided great communication, directions and suggestions. If you are looking for something more private in the rainforest setting, then this is the place for you! We only hope we can return to PR (and stay in this fabulous home), as this was one of our favorite vacations with the kids.

Uniquely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Casa Klumb is a one of a kind experience. I I didn't know anything about the architect but am an avid fan of his mentor Frank Loyd Wright. It is such a lovely home in a stunning location high in the hills overlooking the forest and the ocean. It's beautifully decorated and equipped for everything you might want to do and close to Luquillo restaurants and some gorgeous beaches and nature reserves. I highly recommend this spot. The atmosphere and design of the home made me feel like I was surrounded by beauty.

Secluded Home with Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 had a wonderful time at Casa Klumb. We loved that we were "away from it all" and had time just to enjoy the beauty of the surroundings while being together as a family. The house was well-equipped - the kitchen had everything we needed. Loved coming home after a day exploring the island to the serenity of the house. We were also intrigued by the connection to FLW as we are big fans, being from IL & WI. The owner, Pamela, couldn't have been nicer & was always available to answer questions. She is very organized. Her on site man, Edwin, was also a big help. We would love to come back someday. We enjoyed Puerto Rico immensely.
