"Pictures Do Not Do Justice" is a common exclamation we receive from arriving guests. This house is located on 4 tropical acres, is secluded and gated, and just 1 mile from PR3. Mountain & Ocean Views. Close to one of the best beaches on the island, Luquillo Monserrate, the El Yunque Rain Forest (we are in front of it), and just 25 mins. to Old San Juan or the Fajardo ferry to Culebra & Vieques. Large, clean comfortable bedrooms, plenty of space for you to enjoy inside and out!

The space

Large house private and hidden among a rain forest jungle, on a small mountainside overlooking the valley, with the ocean visible from your patio. Many tourist attractions within 10-15 minutes. You stay like a local but have all the attractions easily available to you. You will hear birds, frogs and roosters -- you WILL NOT hear other parties/groups/screeching tires/loud sirens. It's peaceful and tranquil and surrounded by nature! A light misty rain usually passes quickly by around 3 a.m.

Guest access

Keyless entry pad at entry gate allows access at anytime. Gate entrance is well lit. Once checked in, a remote control to gate is provided. Guests have access to explore four tropical acres in a private setting, large patio with new grill is yours alone, along with a firepit on the side yard, and two stall open garage.

Interaction with guests

Hosts are available 24/7 if necessary, otherwise completely respect guests' privacy. The house is all concrete with 10" of concrete between the first and second floors. Hosts have a separate entrance and parking. Many guests have expressed comfort knowing that hosts are nearby to address unexpected issues and quickly answer any questions. Five star reviews have consistently been earned by owners' attention to details inside and out.

Other things to note

Owners are animal lovers. They have a small beagle mix named "Domino" that is very docile and friendly. Feral cats (named Mama Cat, Tigger, Houdini, and Goldie) call the mountainside home, but are NOT allowed into the house. As with many islands, over-population of cats and dogs is an ongoing problem, and we have tried to do our part by having the animals that live around the mountain spayed and neutered and are cared for.

This is a private, secluded, well-maintained, clean, newer family vacation home tucked into a mountainside of lush rainforest tropical greenery -- NOT a crowded beach front apartment or condo next to dozens of other travelers. Absolutely no smoking inside the house, outside is fine. Occupancy over 6 MUST be pre-arranged and costs $25 per person/per night. No tolerance for groups showing up with more individuals than what has been originally reserved.

We are not hard to get along with and we welcome all guests to our property. Because of a few very rare instances, we set the following rules:
No raging parties. Excessive noise after midnight outside on patio not tolerated. The house is concrete with 8-10" walls, so noise inside is not an issue or concern. But noise outside resonates around the mountainside, and we do not want (nor have we had) noise complaints from residents around the mountain.
No additional visitors that are not guests allowed on the property without pre-approval. If approved, not to exceed 5 persons.

You must also acknowledge
Pet(s) live on property - One docile beagle mix dog named Domino. Five ferral cats live on the mountain, but not/never inside the home.

Absolutely a beautiful location that is tucked away from all the hustle in bustle. It's like a little slice of heaven on a hill. Hector and Kim were very helpful with recommendations and directions. Absolutely wonderful people and their place was very relaxing!

Hector and Kim's La Lomita home is truly a little paradise! The scenery that surronds this home is absolutely breathtaking! The home is very comfortable and spacious. Make sure to take notice of Kim's seaglass artwork throughout the house. Kim and Hector are wonderful hosts, they felt like family.

The home is beautiful and very clean. Hector and Kim are very friendly hosts. I didn't know what to expect with the ferrell cats but they weren't a problem at all. My family of six (children ages 18-26) was very comfortable in the space. I wish we could have stayed longer. Hector and Kim will share all kinds of tips on where to go and what to do. Since they live upstairs, they are very quick to answer questions. Have Hector give you a tour of the property. There are many fruit trees/plants to see.

Our family was so upset that we could not stay longer. This is a wonderfully secluded and beautiful location. We think anyone would be lucky for the chance to stay in this jungle paradise. And Hector and Kim are a warm and welcoming couple. It was a great pleasure to stay in their house.

Our family loved our Spring Break to PR! La Lomita is private, clean, affordable and its own paradise. Lots of plants, flowers, lizards, birds, cats and even a couple of spiders! Kim & Hector are so friendly and helpful. They had lots of great restaurant suggestions. Checking in and out was so easy. The house had plenty of room for our family of 6. There was plenty to see just walking on the property. We highly recommend staying here!

When you book this property, you get the best of both worlds! You get the local tour guide and you get the tourist! Hector was born in Orocovis, Puerto Rico. He moved to Michigan when he was 19. He and Kim have been married since 1992 and vacationed to the island many many years…
