We have stayed with Kim and Hector twice at this lovely home and can't say enough about what a wonderful place it is. The location is perfect, halfway between the San Juan airport and Fajardo, the jumping off point for travel to the outlying islands of Culebra and Vieques. Kim and Hector are warm, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and just plain wonderful people. The property is beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing. Our only regret is that we didn't have more time to just hang out and relax at the house. Highly recommended!
This property is located about 2 miles off of the the highway and secluded from other homes in the area with dense trees which makes the setting very private. There are bananas, mango, lemons, coconuts, plantains growing on the property. We were here for a week and the temperature was in the 80's most of the week and we never used the airconditioner in the house. All the rooms were equipped with ceiling fans and at night the temperature cooled down to make for comfortable sleeping. The patio outside is spacious and has a grill for cooking out. The beach is about 4 miles away and San Juan is a 15 to 20 minute ride to the west. There is a grocery store 3 or 4 miles away and there is also plenty of places to eat along the road. The Rain Forest was about 8-10 miles and provided hiking trails and water falls. The owners are very nice and moved down here from Michigan. I have no problem recommending this home to stay and relax at.
This house was amazing! The description is right on point! The pictures actually don't do it justice. The owners are extremely nice and gave us many suggestions of things to do during our stay. We really enjoyed the outdoor areas, the patio and beautiful landscaping. It could not have been more perfect for our family. The location was great as well, so close to so many different surrounding options. Grocery store, gas station and fast food are all near by on PR3. We traveled with our children (ages 9 and 13) and they are already asking when we can go back and stay again! This was our second stay at La Lomita and we can't wait to go back. I would recommend this house to anyone! Getting out of San Juan and enjoying the many beautiful towns along the coast was breathtaking. If you only stay in San Juan you are truly missing out! Our favorite beach is Luquillo Beach ☀️ Shallow swimming in crystal clear water. The drive to Loiza along the water and many secluded beaches is a must do drive. The little town was perfect for a quick snack, a fresh fruit smoothie and some souvenirs at the cute little shop. Take this route into Isla Verde/San Juan and enjoy dinner there at Mi Casita - yum! Fajado is great too. I heard you can charter a boat to Palamino Island for a reasonable price. We've been there and it is simply the best! Tons of fun activities there. After a full day it was always great relaxing at La Lomita! Great price - great place!
From the moment we arrived at La Lomita, we felt complete peace. It was absolutely breathtaking and beautiful. You drive through the gate and up the driveway, smell the beautiful flowers along the way, and then arrive at the most beautiful home nestled in the mountains. We were content to sit on the patio for hours and just listen to the sounds of the rain forest. But there were so many other amazing things to do in Puerto Rico – from the hiking in the rain forest, to wandering around old San Juan, to the beautiful beaches, a day trip to the island of Culebra and swimming at Flamenco Beach, to all of the amazing hidden local treasures. The location of the home was perfect! And Hector and Kim are the sweetest people you would ever meet. From Hector’s knowledge of the island, to Kim’s enthusiasm to share the best local places to eat and the best beaches and hiking, it was the perfect vacation on the perfect island. The home was exceptionally clean, we had use of the washer and dryer, and were able to help ourselves to the bananas off the banana tree in the backyard every morning. This home is perfect for 6-7 people, and we will definitely plan on coming back.
