Overview

Property Details

Updated: May 21, 2015
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8 adults 2 children

Enjoy a wonderful, low cost Caribbean vacation at our "House in the Hills" (Casa de Loma)

on the beautiful East Coast of Puerto Rico. Our three bedroom vacation home comfortably

accommodates parties of up to eight people in a modern, cheerful, quiet,

and relaxed rural setting.

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.

Convenient to beautiful beaches, world class golf courses, the mountainous El Yunque rain

forest--the only rain forest in US National Forest System, day trips to remote islands,

resorts & casinos, world class snorkeling and scuba diving, as well as the vibrant and

historic city of San Juan, "Casa de Loma" can make your dream vacation affordable!

Casa de Loma is in Las Piedras, Puerto Rico . Las Piedras is a rural community high in the

hills just west of Humacao. The house is a forty-five minute drive from San Juan's

International airport. 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 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 rainforest summits.

A Real Vacation for Us.

  • 5 of 5
Casa de Loma was perfect home and the perfect location for our trip to Puerto Rico. My grandmother grew up on a farm in Puerto Rico and we wanted to experience the kind of rural setting she had lived in as a girl. The hills of Las Piedras are just that. There are fields of plantain trees, cocoanut palms everywhere, mangos growing wild in this country setting. The house itself was cool and breezy and the swimming pool in the large garden was a joy. The neighborhood was well-kept and the neighbors were embracing and helpful. We loved the views from the narrow road leading to the expressway. It took us only 4 minutes to drive to the expressway, but staying high in the hills we never knew it was there. We visited the rainforest (walked in and swam in a waterfalls!) spent an evening in Old San Juan, took a ferry to Vieques Island (about a 25 minute drive away) and went to the Palmas Del Mar Beach to jump in the waves. The highlight of our trip was going over the mountain to Maunabo and Los Bohios Beaches. Beautiful natural beaches on each side of an historic lighthouse. Almost alone on these beaches, we felt we were in a tropical paradise. The house was as advertised. Comfortable, well-equipped and Cable TV and Wifi. We had everything we needed including access to a washer and a dryer. Thanks for share it with us; we hope to come back soon!

Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5
Rented this property for a week very convenient for exploring the east side of Puerto Rico. Close to the Rainforest, Fajardo and the ferry to Culebra or Vieques, as well as several small towns with beaches. The house itself was nicely furnished. Great swimming pool and back yard. No views, and no A/C on those warm afternoons but the fans kept the air moving. Mosquitos after dark--came home with a few bites! Only complaint, and why I didn't give a five star rating, is that the wifi/internet never worked. I notified the owner, who was on the island, and he said he would come look at it. Never heard from him again during our week's stay, and never had internet. Frustrating when, in our electronic world, you can't MapQuest out the next day's journey or check email, etc...

A safe, relaxed island house in a well-located town in the countryside.

  • 5 of 5
The owners were great. They thought of/took care of everything. The house was cozy and secure. This was a return visit with my family, and everything at the house had just gotten better - especially the georgeous, totally private pool! We loved this place because you could just jump on Route 30, and pretty much get to anywhere on the island with minimal hassle. It was also fun staying around Las Piedras and exploring the countryside in the Southeast.

Owner's Response: Your right Judy, Las Piedras is an easy place to tour from. 5 or six beaches within 30 minute drives. Easy access to the El Yunque Rain Forest Park, 45 minutes to Old San Juan and 35 minutes to the Culebra/Vieques Ferries. All this convenience and a private tropical paradise too! Thanks.

Great island-style house with all the amenities, in nice, well-located town.

  • 5 of 5
You don't have to worry about problems here; the owners are pros at this, and everything went smoothly; and the house was as advertised: well-decorated & appointed, and clean. NICE pool, totally private. Loved location. Las Piedras is a cool little town - has everything you need, plus beautifull hilly countryside to explore. Really close to Humacao and beaches - very nice ones. Best part: strategically located for day trips all over the island with least amount of traffic. Loved road-tripping and checking out small towns - nice vibe, nice people.

Owner's Response: We are always pleased when our guests see the real Puerto Rico, visiting the country-side, going through the towns and meeting the friendly and welcoming residents. It sounds like you enjoyed the nearby beaches as well? For those not desperate to be right on a beach, this house is a real jewel; in a lovely setting and providing a memorable experience. It sound like you had a wonderful vacation! Congrats and thanks for staying at Casa de Loma.

Owner's Response: Thank you!
We are very pleased you enjoyed our home! Casa De Loma is wonderfully situated to provide a quiet and private location, while giving quick access to major roads and the city of Humacao. Using our day trip guide, you can visit the special places and return home easily every night for a comfortable period of relaxation. We think some of our best guests are those that venture about in Puerto Rico to meet the friendly people and see the amazing sites. For example, the wonderful rain forest park, known as El Yunque, is just 35 minutes drive away. You can visit it in the morning and go to a wonderful beach in the afternoon. Then have dinner out in Humacao and return home for ice cream and a good night sleep. Casa De Loma lets you pack so much into your vacation day.
