The space

The little Villa is really a special place to stay. Very private, quiet and with outstanding view of the mountain landscape & ocean background. This unit is approximately 400 sq feet in size, though it lives much larger than that! The balcony for outdoor living/relaxing is large at well over 200 square feet and a killer view!

Guests also have access to the swimming pool/lounge area, bbq/grill & garden featuring local fruits & flowers & herbs. Peaceful & relaxing and all truly well located for adventures around the island.

Locally produced coffee is provided for guests to brew for themselves. In addition, a complimentary bottle of wine, beer & light snacks are provided to start the guests stay off on the right foot.

Off street parking for 2 cars is also available.
Get dirty on your hike in the forest? No worries---there is a brand new full size washer & dryer waiting for you in your Villa! :)

Guest access

Guests will have full access to their private Villa. It is a shared balcony with another Villa. This balcony is quite large at 200 sq feet, with a nice sitting area to enjoy morning coffee or evening cocktails!

Want to take a swim & relax by the pool? Indulge yourself! Our above ground 10,000 gallon pool with surrounding wrap around deck & sweeping ocean view is the best place to hang! There is also a beautiful lounge area pool side with a covered roof to keep off the sun's elements and allow you to listen to your ipad music in the cool caribbean breeze.

We also have a tasty little garden where we are growing lime trees, papaya, banana, plantain, tropical flowers & herbs! Feel free to indulge yourself here, too!

Interaction with guests

I am available any day/any time to assist our guests with whatever need they may have. In addition too, guests staying at Hacienda MonteMare, will receive 15% off of their gift shop purchases when shopping at our handcrafted artisan gallery "Coqui International", located just a mile away, down the mountain in the little town of Palmer, nestled right in front of El Yunque National Rainforest.

Other things to note

Our location is superb! Just a short jaunt to The Wyndham Rio Mar Beach Resort & Casino, the beaches (renowned Luquillo Beach is a mere 5 minute or less drive from our Villa), the Kiosko's (famed waterfront restaurants, approx 60 of them!) are also less than 5 minutes away, the El Yunque Rainforest is my neighbor and approx 5 minutes away, too!

We are also only 25 minutes from the San Juan Luis Munoz International Airport and approx 40-45 minutes from Old San (URL HIDDEN) an easy day of touring the old city & relaxing on your private deck with a glass of wine by night!

Quaint little place just next to El Yunque national park. Accesible and the host is very responsive to requests and making sure you get there without problems. The view from the apartment and the pool area are second to none in the area

To anyone looking for an authentic Puerto Rican experience free from the crowds and typical tourist shenanigans, Toms place is for you. The views are absolutely stunning, everything you need is within a short 5-10 min drive and if you want to explore various parts of the island you have the main expressway (toll free) literally down the road. In addition to the location, Tom is a great host, with impeccable attention to detail. Anything you may have forgotten or you can possibly want/need is available and with style as he was kind enough to fill the kitchen area with all kinds of goodies and local delicacies. I can go on and on. Our only regret was not spending more time. Thank again Tom and we look forward to future travels.

Tom is the man! His quiet mountainside villa is probably the best value you can find on the island. The tips and advice Tom provides is priceless. The villa is gorgeous and having your own private pool was amazing. The views are breathtaking and the area is so quiet. We look forward to coming back to enjoy this wonderful place. Thanks again Tom.

Stayed at Toms place for 3 nights in early May. I can say exactly the same things as the other guest and they all are true. I must mention that Tom is a very kind and caring person. He genuinely cares about YOU and goes out of his way to make sure you are happy. Do not stay here without a visit to his beautiful store. This is a must shop destination! Love the proximity to El Yunque and the beaches. We also were able to squezze in a day trip to Old San Juan. Very easy to get around. Loved listening to the sounds from Toms deck at night! Very comfortable bed and enjoyed everything about our visit! Stay at Toms! You will not be disappointed!

Tom's place was the perfect place to stay for our vacation! Everything in the room was brand new and beautifully decorated, with extra amenities like a fridge, toaster, microwave, and washing machine. Tom left some snacks and drinks in the mini fridge, which we enjoyed while sitting out on the deck or by the pool. All of the little details were taken care of - extra pool towels, a cooler for drinks, pillows on the lounge chairs, coffee & tea for the morning. Tom also provided a map of the town with great suggestions for restaurants and places to visit. The location is ideal, just a short drive away from the beach and the rain forest, with amazing views and a quiet atmosphere. Tom was a great host, and we would definitely recommend his place!

Tom's review said it all... this place is beautiful and definitely worth booking!! This was so much better than staying at a resort. Since my guest and I decided to rent a car we literally went anywhere and everywhere exploring the amazing atmosphere of PR. Tom's villa was prime location!!

My wife and I stayed in this B&B for my wife's birthday and we had a blast. There are restaurants at the bottom of the hill down from the apartment that are top-notch. Tom is a great host and did everything to ensure that we would have a blast. We had a chance to swim in his pool which was a nice change from the beaches; the beaches are beautiful, but sometimes a private pool hits the spot. We recommend utilizing Tom's recommendations for all excursions. Thanks to Tom for helping us enjoy our vacation!
