Shhh, don't tell anyone else about this place, OK? I might want to go back and I want to make sure it's available since it's just one bungalow. We spent three blissful nights in this hideaway. Carole is a charming and accommodating hostess. The outdoor kitchen is amazing. I'm sure it rains, but didn't the four days that we stayed...

We stayed here for 5 nights. There is an absolutely spectacular view of the rainforest and beach in one shot from her outside kitchen. You stay in her guest house which is netted but open to the weather. It rains a lot in the rainforest which keeps the temperature not too bad but it is humid. I think this place...

We enjoyed 2 days & nights at Carole's: hers is the last place on the road to the El Junque rainforest, but remember that this road past her place has been closed for most of 10 years due to a landslide. The official entrance to the visitor center is only 20 minutes away. You may hear road crews driving in...

Hi NM, Thanks for the review and am sure glad you enjoyed your visit to our lovely place in the rainforest! I did call the Department of Transportation and spoke with Sr. Jose Uno who stated the construction work should be complete by June 2013. So for others wondering if a truck will be driving past the property Monday-Friday, construction...

We stayed here for two nights on January 20 and truly loved it. We arrived to a very sweet villa, upon entering: soft music playing a variety of cute light fixtures lit, clean and floral scents, and colorful Caribbean eclectic decor. The floor is made of large interesting tiles. It has an open air screened window looking out on your...

We just returned from 4 nights at Carole's. Our days were spent exploring the beaches and rainforest and our evenings were spent looking out at the sea from Carole's outdoor kitchen . Carole does everything she can to make you feel welcome . She knows the area so well and can provide helpful hints about everything. We loved El Verde...

We went to stay with Carole for our honeymoon and it was absolutely amazing! She was so warm and gracious and she did so many wonderful things to make our stay cozy. The room was super cute and we loved looking out the window at the view of the rainforest. The foliage was glorious and having a font-row view from...

We absolutely loved our stay at Carole's place on the border of the EL Yunque. Her beautiful home offers everything you could possibly need in the a tropical atmosphere and so much more--I cant wait to go back. This room with a bathroom is comfortable and the outdoor kitchen and view is a tropical dream. We especially enjoyed the walk...

My daughter and I stayed with Carol last April. The view is beautiful and from the top of the mountain. You are serenaded by the frogs at night and see both the ocean the forest from her fabulous outdoor kitchen. The first day we were there, Carol made us one of her famous bananas smoothies from fresh bananas and using...

Very beautyful place at the border of the El Yunque Rainforest Park. Carole, the owner, is a very nice person and you can find everything you need in the bedroom she offers. You can use the outside kitchen looking in a very beautyful tropical yard. The perfect place if you like to stay in the middle of the nature. Near...

In a word, paradise. Upon arrival, we met Carole tending to her blooming backyard full of ginger and bananas. There is a pool out there somewhere swallowed by the jungle. Say hi to Carole and Sabana for us if you go, and enjoy cooking up breakfast in your own private outdoor kitchen with one of the nicest people you'll ever...
