This is a lovely old Hacienda that gives a feeling of yesteryear. It is on a gorgeous hilltop setting and very tranquil. The ever changing sunlight and clouds on the mountains is magical. Bring books or cards if you do not speak Spanish as tv stations are all Spanish. You will wa…

The house has everything you need, especially if you just want to stay in and cook in the kitchen, or wake up early and have coffee out on the balcony. The owners are a little hard to get ahold of, but there is Luis who lives downstairs who can help if you have questions. There w…

Response from Adam, Cathy & Kat (Niece) Garcia:
Hello World! Its always our hope and desire to create an amazing experience and to host many fond memories. I think Dana had a fantastic time over all but allow me to respond to some of her content for the sake of future guests knowledge. D-The owners are a little hard to get ahold of, but there is Luis who lives downstairs who can help if you have questions. A-We are super clear in our content but if you have a question that I don't respond to, just ask again. Life happens but as you see by the other reviews, we are very easy to reach. I think that her internet was not working well so she never informed us of some things when Dana was on site. I changed the router this week and neither of these two issues will be a problem. D-There were a couple of things that I wish we had known, or had read closer, before booking: 1. The house is very secluded up on this amazing mountain. You need to get in before dark because the mountain roads are windy and somewhat intimidating. DO NOT RELY ON GPS. A-Correct, please arrive the first day with day light if possible. The most direct road is tricky and dark because there are no post/city lights on 128. I have alternate routes if you will arrive late. Once you arrive to La Hacienda, I don't see a need to use 128 again. I would come and go through Castañer once you get a feel for the area. Also, I explain to everyone to carry a paper map because G Maps is not optimal. You will see that suggestion several times in our information. Sometimes G Maps shows roads that have not been roads for many years or roads that your little car should not be on. If your still feel like you'd love to stay here but your on the fence because of these road comments, I suggest you go ahead and book the home and then schedule a time with us (with a paper map in hand) prior to your arrival and we will show you the 3 other routes to arrive to our home. One through Lares, another through Yauco and the third through Adjuntas/Castañer. I promise though, if you arrive during the day your first night, all will be as fine as everyone else experience. D-2. Bring in your groceries your first night. We had to make a "quick" trip to Castañer (a 20 minute drive) for our food basics, and the little markets are not very well stocked. A- Agreed D-3. The Wifi was an issue for us. A- We knew nothing about this until we saw the review. Had we been informed by a call or text or an email (when there was wifi) or through Luis, this would have been fixed within 2 hours. We have several properties hooked up with the internet provider. They are a local company that is super efficient. I have a service plan with all connections and regardless of the service plan, my account is well taken care of the few times calls have been made for service. All in all, I called them when I saw this review, and the router was replaced within hours. All is great again! D-4. The house is creeky. There were many sounds that kept me up at night, and even during the day when the sun would warm the wood walls and cause them to expand. A-Hmmm, kinda mean to say this. It's clear that this is an amazing older hacienda made of wood. I think Dana is a city girl that must not get to the country much. The home sits up on a hill/mountain and maybe the wind hitting the home at night could have caused some noise but I have never felt creeped out here and especially because the Coquis usually put me to sleep beautifully. I hope this long explanation helped a bunch and that Dana's fear/reservation/city life expectations don't spook you away (sorry, I had to do that). We are available for a scheduled call before you arrive! Hope that helps and see you in Paradise soon, Adam, Cathy and Kat

Even with minor inconviniences that were taken care inmediately, we had a very good time. The house and its surroundings are beautiful. The sounds and sillence were the best. People in the area are very friendly. We even liked the rain and the fog. As soon as you step into the ho…
