We stayed at Carole's Rainforest Villas for two nights this past week and absolutely loved it. The villa itself is charming and very thoughtfully set up, but it's the setting in in the rainforest that makes it truly magical. We loved sitting on the porch as the rain drummed on the roof above, cooking in the awesome outdoor kitchen with...

Carole's Rainforest Villas was easily one of my favorite places I've ever stayed. The view was gorgeous, the location was perfect, and Carole herself was so warm and inviting. The 1 BR villa we stayed in was amazing. Every single detail, from the incredibly comfortable king size bed to the hammock swinging just outside the window, has been thought out...

A friend and I stayed here for 2 nights in August, and I really wish we had booked a longer stay. Carole's place is great. Its located very close to the rainforest and waterfalls - so close that we beat the tourist crowd to Mina falls and were able to swim for awhile and enjoy the falls without a bunch...

We visited Carole's Rainforest Villas this past August and we had an incredible time. Like so many other people have said, this was the highlight of our week-long trip to Puerto Rico. We spent two nights there and we were still not able to do everything we wanted to do. The first day we hiked some waterfalls and then at...

At the risk of sounding totally corny, this place is magical! My boyfriend and I only spent 1 night at Carole's but it was the highlight of our PR trip. Her place is right before the entrance to the El Yunque National Park. You're basically in the rainforest here. Carole was friendly and accommodating. She chatted with us for a...

We experienced a tropical treasure staying at Carole's. Her outdoor kitchen has a wonderful view of trees, flowers, and the ocean in the distance. Our room was colorful with unique decorations & attention to detail. Carole was a gracious host providing us with information about the area & made us delicious banana smoothies & provided snacks for us. We hiked...

My only hesitation in writing about the wonderful Carole's Rainforest Villas is that the secret will be out and we won't be able to get another reservation.

The most fantasic place! The location, view, surroundings, beautifully decorated and comfortable room, and wonderful host, Carole, and her happy puppy, Tiki, and gorgeous kitty, Goochie!

There are no words that can even begin to touch how phonomenal our experience was at Carole's. This is PR's best kept secret. The bedroom was colorful and cozy with pretty music playing when we arrived. There were even white fluffy towels in the shower :) Pictures cannot do justice to how amazing the kitchen is. I could have easily...
