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.
A safe, relaxed island house in a well-located town in the countryside.
Great island-style house with all the amenities, in nice, well-located town.
Great time at Casa De Loma!!!!
We will not hesitate to recommend this house to any of our friends.
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.
