We stayed 2 nights at Carole's Place in mid-February. We could have easily stayed 4 nights. We were traveling with another couple, so this place was perfect. The rooms are upstairs and downstairs and are really an entire building unto themselves. Carole lives in the house in front. The king beds were very comfortable and it was so nice to...

We have a wonderful time here at Carole's Rainforest Villas. When we arrived yesterday Carole gave us a great welcome. The rooms are fantastic, the out side area is really beautiful and it is very relaxing to stay here. The Yunque national park is a very good hiking area, and Carole's Rainforest Villas is located at the park border. We...

We had a wonderful time staying at Carole's Villa over the Christmas holiday - she is very accommodating and had everything on hand you might need for your stay. This is definitely more of a low key bed and breakfast type experience, so don't stay here if you're looking for a posh hotel that will cater to your every need...

We had such an amazing time staying with Carole! We followed her advice and took the scenic route to get to her place and it was worth the drive! She is located at the entrance to El Yunque so it's a perfect location if you love to hike and explore like us! Upon arrival she was very welcoming and informative....

My wife and I stayed at Carole's place and had an absolutely wonderful time. It is so peaceful and such a remote feeling even though town is only a few minutes down the road so you are away from the busy streets and surrounded by nature. You climb a road up to 700ft in elevation so it's a little cooler...

Fernando was the best tour guide. Our family went on the 2 hour house back riding tour for the day. It was very educational for the children , we stopped by the river took a dip and learned about the mineral rocks!!!! Thank you Fernando we will be back to visit.

We had a million dollar view. Our villa was clean and safe. Our host was so accommodating. Will go back next year. The weather was hot in town but breezy up in the mountains and cool at night. Need a hardy vehicle to get around. Bring sunscreen, hat and binoculars. Host knows best beaches and river sites. Bring mosquito repellent...

As I write this review I am immersed back into the hustle and bustle of everyday life and I am missing Carole's immensely. My boyfriend Tom and I were looking for an active getaway and this was the perfect location. We arrived very early in the morning and had breakfast on the way from the airport at this yummy bakery...

We stayed at Carole's with another couple. It was rustic, charming and very comfortable. Carole was very thoughtful in outfitting the rooms. She thought of everything we might possibly need. The mini fridge in the room was stocked with breakfast food. She makes amazing oatmeal for breakfast. Her place was a highlight of our entire week in Puerto Rico.

I combed through reviews before booking with Carole. She more than met our expectations. Beautiful villas, jungle scenery and the lovely night sounds of the coquí. We hiked the rainforest and swam in waterfalls by day and relaxed in the outdoor kitchen and lounge area at night. Carole is very thoughtful with the amenities she provides and the villas are...
