“Joseph s property is nice. It has been renovated from outside. It is located in the rain forest but it is not isolated. There are many houses in the area. We had some difficulty to go up the road, as it is very narrow. But once you get used to it, it is fine. As it is in the rain forest, you need to be flexible about ants and not picky. We did not find that the property, especially the kitchen, not cleaned in the proper way. The best part of the house is the room on the terrace but Joseph do not offer it for guests. That is a pity as this could have been a great experience, enjoying the view from the top. But thanks Jo, it was an experience and we do recommend his place. ”
Joseph's reviewsAs a host (2)
“Jasmine scented air! This is a beautiful home: neat, clean, well maintained, well equipped, pretty, and comfortable. The gardens are lush, the beds are comfy, the home is filled with art, the wifi works well, the water is delicious, the view over the hills to the ocean looks like a painting. Joseph was easy to communicate with and left nicely detailed instructions along with a trail map of the nearby El Yunque rainforest and a good restaurant recommendation. The house is remote (lovely!) and you will need a rental car. Get one with a high clearance as the driveway meets the road at a very steep angle and my low economy car scraped even as I inched in and out of the driveway at the shallowest angle. Follow the directions to the home very carefully so you don't end up on a tour of the mountain. My phone's map did not work all the way to the house. We loved Casita Linda and wished we had more time there to enjoy the jasmine air and serene view.”
Where is it?
Our home is located in the Luquillo hills section of El Yunque , a US National Forest. Set in a lush 1 acre tropical garden at 450 feet above sea level. We enjoy a near constant trade wind breeze, over look the town of Luquillo and 8 miles of undeveloped sea shore called the Northeast Corridor. Luquillo boasts the three best beaches on the Island! The Corridor is great for hiking and is a noted nesting site for giant sea turtles.
To the East, the next town of Fajardo boasts a bioluminescent bay, catamaran snorkeling trips and the El Conquistador golf and casino resort. To the West, the town of Rio Grande boasts the Rio Mar golf and casino resort and El Portal, the entrance to El Yunque national forest. San Juan is 35 miles west of Luquillo with a host of tourist attractions and fine dining. A car is a must.
