  • Wonderful forest retreat

    "We love staying at Cristina's property in the forest! The cottage is in a large private forest next to a river. The forest is mature and undisturbed, there are tons of frogs, lizards, and birds - a nature lover's dream. The scenery is beautiful and there are several trails on the property to go exploring. If you walk all the way to the top of the hill you can actually watch the sun set in the Caribbean and get a good view of Desecheo. The cottage is rustic but in a quaint way - the walls are wood but you have all the amenities and comfort you could wish for (laundry, A/C, kitchen, hot water, etc.). I love sitting on the large front porch when eating my breakfast and my group enjoyed using the barbecue in the evenings! It is much cooler up there in the mountains than in the city, we were very comfortable only running the ceiling and wall fans. The property is also really ideally located. I've not found another rental like it in Puerto Rico - you can have your forest retreat but still be a very short drive from all the tourist attractions! It's only a 30 minute drive from the property into Rincon, 15 minutes to Mayaguez, and 45 minutes to Cabo Rojo. There's so much to see in this region and the sunsets are amazing. Cristina has always been extremely responsive and welcoming to us when we stay there (this is our 3rd trip to her property). We can't wait for our next trip to this little forest paradise!"

  • Everything that we could've hoped for and more!

    "We had a great time staying in this condo. The top floor was very quiet which is what we were looking for. The condo was very clean and had plenty of linens. The kitchen was very well equipped. The balcony has a very nice view of the courtyard and you can see the pool and some of the water off to the left. The internet and phones worked great. We did have one issue with the AC units and had to contact the owner. I emailed Mark and he replied the same day. The problem was fixed the next day (both AC units were replaced with brand new ones). This was accomplished on a holiday! The maintenance man went above and beyond as far as I’m concerned. Thanks Mark for taking care of that so quickly. We would definitely stay there again when visiting St. Croix in the future."

  • Gorgeous!

    "I had the pleasure of staying a few nights with friends at this gorgeous home away from home, and I would highly recommend it if you are planning a trip to Las Galeras for three reasons. One, The location can't be beat! It's set back a ways from town, so it's peaceful and quiet, but it lies right next to one of the best secrets in Samana, and the highlight of our trip... an amazing hike to Playa Rincon, one of the top rated beaches in the Caribbean! This hike is a must do in Las Galeras! Two, Leonel and Catherine were so helpful! Leonel was our chef, guide, security, and even schooled us in a few rounds of dominoes. The food was amazing (request his hummus; it's better than some Greek restaurants I've been to!), and his attentiveness was unbeatable. He made our experience unique and fun! And Catherine, the owner of the property, was incredibly helpful. She gave us great advice about what to do around town and made us feel at home in her house. It was as if we had the inside scoop on Las Galeras. Definitely not something you get with just any property. It was fabulous! And three, the house is super comfortable and homey. There are several different room options, so it's perfect for a big group traveling together, and all of the common spaces give you the room to be together as a group, as well as the space to spread out and take time to relax and enjoy the Caribbean pace of life. I would definitely go back and hope to soon!!"

  • Doesnt get much better

    "The only thing that could make this property any better is if it were free. Its a nice and private area. I think only 8 townhouse style villas a gated an intimate subdivision. The property is well maintained and the pool was clean every day. The staff from the grounds keeper to the house keeper (Especially the house keeper) make your stay pleasant and comfortable. This place would be good for a romantic get away or a solo trip. I stayed in one with a microwave so I was able to warm up food at some of the nice restaurants. Its only 5 minutes drive from the main strip where the night life is yet it is far enough so that you dont hear the hustle and bustle of the street. This is my 2nd time staying here and I like the modern amenities at home no matter where I go. I'm happy to say this property is perfect for a spoiled guy like me. Whenever I go back I will definitely be staying here."
