“Paradise in Rio Grande ”
Reviewed June 14, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

If you are traveling to Puerto Rico and don't stay here you missed out on making your vacation awesome!

This was paradise the villa is so neat, clean and spacious it was 8 of us and we had plenty of space. The pool was so lovely, the grounds was like having your own personal rain forest and garden of tropical fruits.
We will never stay in a hotel again, we have claimed this as our 2nd home.
The owners made sure our stay was comfortable and Papalote the gentleman that greeted us is a angel most helpful, polite and just genuinely a great person. I could go on and on but I wont but I will say this we have already started planning our return visit right back to this place. Paradise...a must

“We loved our brief stay at this beautiful mountain home!”
Reviewed March 14, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Two couples spent a night in Old San Juan and then drove to this villa in the mountains. The owner was extremely helpful in all aspects of planning. The villa was better than expected! Kitchen well equipped, rooms comfy, beds great, good linens and bathrooms. The view was to die for: the ocean in the distance in one direction and the rain forest in the other. We had a little issue upon arrival with the hot water, but the owner and the local overseer were immediately on it and resolved the problem, could not have asked for better. The large pool is new and pristine. We visited during a stretch of rain (but it seemed to clear when we went to the beach or the rain forest!) so we did not make full use of the pool, so we have decided we will go back! highly recommend....

“Private Paradise!”
Reviewed August 30, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This house is an absolute gem. It's beautifully landscaped and fully equipped. We swam in the beautiful pool every day and grilled on the patio multiple times during our stay. Everything was clean and in wonderful working order.

The view is exceptional and the house manager is helpful. He cut down coconuts and passion fruit for us and gave us some great recommendations for day trips!

It was a dream vacation.

“Perfect house with a perfect view”

This place was incredible with the most amazing views and property. The owner was super easy to work with and the House Manager was very informative and helpful, but in no way invasive. I can't say enough about how lovely this place is, in fact, the pictures don't even do it justice. We highly recommend it to anyone and hope to get back there soon ourselves.

“Just Amazing!!!!!”
Reviewed July 24, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

What an amazing Villa! I will definetly recommend villa Serena to any of my friends and family. The Villa was just amazing. The views, the pool, the bedrooms, the whole experience was just amazing. From the location, to the adventure of Rio Grande. Close to the main highway, close to shopping centers and most of all very close to the beach by Luquillo, which it has an amazing Kiosk with Puerto Rican food and how could I forget El Yunke (Puerto Rico one of it biggest rainforest). The rainforest view was breath taking. Every morning sunrise was amazing and at night it was just amazing with the coquies. Once again I will recommend this house.

The house was spotless, the owener (Sam) was amazing on customer service, always check on the travelers (us) and make sure everythng was good! Even before our trip he was making sure we were well taken care off.

The KITCHEN was amazing!!! I love to cook so I found everything that you need in a kitchen and more for amazing dinner for our family.

We were a party of 7. 4 Adults and 3 kids and all of us just enjoy the house to its fullest.

The pool was clean every two days and it was just spotless. Once again I know I keep going on and on but I have rented houses when we go on trips but I will said this Villa has top all of them. Please see some pictures that I have attached!

“Perhaps the most perfect vacation home we've ever stayed in”
Reviewed March 23, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

person found this review helpful

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.
