“Perhaps the most perfect vacation home we've ever stayed in”

Just returned from a 9-night stay at Villa Serena, and our experience was simply magical. The photos do not do the property justice! The extensive gardens are beautifully and professionally maintained by the efficient and friendly caretaker, who also takes care of the pool. It's a bit like staying in a nature reserve, surrounded by the sounds of the coquis at night and the birds in the morning. The rooms on the main level flow from one to the other with a delightful feeling of openness and effortless style. There was plenty of communal space, and also plenty of places for a quiet solitary retreat. The beds are all exceptionally comfortable! The kitchen is beyond fabulous, with double cooktops and double sinks, ideal for any cook, and the most extensive assortment of kitchen equipment we've ever seen in a rental home. The studio on the lower level is airy and comfortable, and leads directly to the pool. We could not get enough of the views from the bedrooms, balcony, and pool deck. Among the delightful surprises were the outdoor cooking station with grill, the coconuts, bananas, and plantains the caretaker cut for us, and the water lily garden complete with goldfish in the outdoor dining area. All this about half an hour from San Juan airport, 20 minutes from the El Yunque visitor's center, 20 minutes to Luquillo (which you can see in the distance from the house), and 50 minutes from Farjado. Sambath, the owner, responded promptly to our inquiry and was easy to deal with. Our party of five agreed unanimously that it was one of the very best vacations we've ever had.

My husband and I spent a week here for our 25th wedding anniversary. It was a perfect spot for us and we very much enjoyed our stay. The house is lovely and nicely decorated. The kitchen is gorgeous and a dream to cook in...well-stocked with dishes, pots & pans, and containers. The pool is clean, pretty, and a good size (we spent a fair amount of time in or around it). The view from the upstairs balcony is unbelievable and a good place for an evening cocktail. As for the grounds, it's hard to describe the size of the property, variety of plants, and sheer beauty of the torch ginger, plumeria, heliconia and other things that were in full-bloom. Every day we wandered around seeing what we could find and every day we found something new. We couldn't get enough of it...enjoying fresh young coconut, passion fruit, star fruit and Jamaican cherries (delicious in yogurt for breakfast). The location was good with grocery stores, beaches, and, of course, El Yunque, within an easy drive. I have to say, though, once we got to this house, we had little incentive to leave. We spent two weeks in Puerto Rico and this was by far our favorite place. We plan on returning soon and hope to spend the bulk of our time in this rental. I rarely give 5 stars on any rating for anything, but this house truly exceeded our expectations. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a quiet, comfortable, relaxing and private vacation rental.
