Adam and I (Cathy) are not usually in town, but we'd love meeting and spending time with you when we are. We are always a text or call away! Our neighborhood is just that; A community of people coming together looking out for one another, and very open to welcoming travelers from all around the world. Many of the locals that you'll meet in this this area don't travel much, so it is just as exciting for them to meet you as it is for you to meet them. Everyone I know is very giving, loving, genuine and humble, which is one of the many things that makes you fall in love with our beautiful island. I grew up in these lovely mountains with these amazing people, and it's an honor and a privilege for us to share this part of the Island with you.

      AMAZING!!!

      This house met all of our needs for such a large group and what an amazing view!! Adam was very quick about responding and made sure our stay was great. The place was clean and very comfortable even with 27 people. I would highly recommend this place for small or large groups!

      5/5 Excellent

        Such An Escape!!

        My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our honeymoon. Adam and Cathy's place was such a beautiful escape from the typical hotel-type vacation. We had the songs of the chachi tree frogs at night and the many varieties of birds to greet us in the morning. The amazing feeling from looking off their back balcony just cannot be captured in a picture. I also recommend the food that the chef cooks and delivers to the home... for when you don't want to leave The Sanctuary yet have delicious, home-made authentic Puerto Rican cuisine. Win-win! We will return to Puerto Rico before we go anywhere else in the world, and we will ask Adam and Cathy for availability before anyplace else.

        5/5 Excellent

          An absolute gem

          We booked The Sanctuary from 12/23-12/26 to celebrate Xmas. We all LOVED it. The view alone is worth every penny. No photo can do justice to the sheer, take your breath away, first look from the terrace. It was clean, well prepared and had everything we needed (except for a set of sharp knives...please fix that bit!). In a good location for all the adventure sports available in the area. The grounds are beautiful. The house is much bigger than the photos suggest. We're a family of 6 and had more than enough space. I'm now telling everyone I know about this place, we had such a good time there. Nervous Drivers might want to do the grocery shop before they arrive. Thanks for letting us enjoy a true Xmas in Paradise!
