Looking for a peaceful, secluded getaway spot? Our unique round house (actually a 12 sided building called a dodecagon) is a nature lover's paradise! Located in the mountainous coffee growing region of southwest Puerto Rico on the quiet northern edge of the Maricao Forest Reserve, this is the perfect place to relax and reconnect! The short walk in (1000 feet from top of road down to cabin) allows for complete privacy, yet in less than an hour's drive you can be on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Let the coquis (a variety of frogs only found in Puerto Rico) sing you to sleep under the stars!

A fully equipped two bedroom house with all of the modern amenities you could want in the middle of the bosque, our place is perfect for couples, but also works well for friends or a small family. The Maricao Forest Reserve is a world class birding destination. This part of Puerto Rico is the "quiet side" of the island, but has many nearby beaches and attractions. You may even spot a rare Puerto Rican parrot during your stay!

House includes these features: *Unique 12-sided design *530 square feet, fully furnished *Two bedrooms, one with queen size bed and one with full size futon *Additional futon in living room allows sleeping for up to 6 people *Fully equipped kitchen, including refrigerator, microwave, electric hot plate, coffee maker, toaster and toaster oven *Charcoal grill and fire ring *Indoor and outdoor showers *Covered patio *An absolute guarantee of NO SNOW!

There is excellent cell phone reception, but no interruptions from TV or internet. Internet reception is available on the Maricao town square, and at many restaurants around the island. We have a caretaker when we are not in P.R., and we are just a phone call away if you need anything at all.

Your stay helps support the nonprofit Renewed Hope, which gives free stays at our various locations to cancer survivors and their families.

    I want to come back and spend a week in this place! If you are looking for a private secluded place, where you can abide by your own schedule and cook your own food this is the vacation spot for you. Plenty of amenities, a beautiful location, and so clean and well kept. Great for bird watching!
