Our personal home is on the property. We are close by for any assistance. We have lots of fruits & vegetables (passion fruit, bananas, pineapple, mangos..).
We are striving to be as low impact as possible.

The space
There are 2 bedrooms (suitable for 3 people). Or if you feel like sleeping in a hammock there are two hammocks available in the house.
There is a small refrigerator and wifi within walking distance at the main house.
There is a compost toilet and solar lights. As part of our efforts to evolve in the permaculture process we are developing a humanure composting for our gardens. Our hopes are that our guests feel that they are part of the process in living a sustainable life.
Local, rural place for environmentally loving people and backpackers.
Very authentic and unique Puerto Rican mountain experience.

I am a Montessori school teacher by trade and Mark is an artist and gardener extraordinaire. Right now Mark and I are on a new venture opening a vacation rental on our 7 acre property. We live on the property with our 2 children and several animals. We have a garden that we tend to, lots of fruit trees and we are beginning a permaculture garden. We love the island and its people and are very excited to be able to share our love for the island to others. On our property we have one guest house that has 3 bedrooms called Hacienda Rosa and the Sugar Shack a rustic 2 bedroom cottage. We love to surf, hike in the rainforest and explore our beautiful island.
