Other Site Reviews:
This place exceeded our expectations, especially after camping the night before! The place was huge and spotless. It had a big deck with hammocks. On the walk to the tire swing at the end of the road, we wondered if we had entered paradise... fruit trees are everywhere along this road. Adam was very communicative over the phone and gave great suggestions for things to do nearby. He also left us a bowl of fruit and fresh flowers - a nice touch. The shower was hot.
Casa Flor is a little piece of paradise. Located on a very quiet road it is the ultimate place to relax. We stayed at Adam's place for 4 nights and were very sad to leave it behind. The house itself is large and beautiful, with an amazing view from the large deck. We spent quite some time in the hammocks enjoying the constant chatter of birds, but also explored the surrounding mountains and forests. The place was a bit difficult to find as we arrived in the night (and as I hadn't written down the directions in the email that he sent me), but Adam was super helpful and talked us through it on the phone. I hope to come back to this gorgeous place in the future and would recommend it to anyone! Thank you so much, Adam, for an amazing vacation!
Great, modern, large house in a fantastic remote valley, breakfast fruits just outside of the door, large terasse where we had our breakfast. Adam very helpful with directions and had fantastic knowledge of the local area. Close to beteay zip line and tanama river excursions plus the ceremonial park just a bit off the road 111. You definitely need the car to get here, suitable for all generation, perfect get away. We would definitely recommend it for everyone. Not only for the house but for adam's helpfulness from booking till departure :)
Kindly, I can expound but only after you book the home.

What an awesome, awesome place !! Lost in the mountain near Utuado, this house was gorgeous. Although we were too, you could easily fit way more inside, we alsmot felt lost ! Seriously, it has everything you need, including a lovely balcony with hammocks overlooking the valleys. It is surrounded by fruit trees, and we really felt special staying there !

This place is a gem. The Central mountains was my favorite part of PR and night at this place a great experience. The place is set in the Cordillera countryside. The views are spectacular. It was very easy to find the place thanks to adam's detailed directions. The room and bathroom were clean. As many reviewers have mentioned - the roosters are there. But IMO that's part of the countryside charm. The dogs - Brownie and Bella are a delight. Hector who stays at the property is a great guy. He will go with you on hikes and recommend to you things to do around that area which you may not find in any guidebook. He told me about a spot where I could bathe in the river and it was a great experience. Adam is the best host ever. I decided to stay another night in the area but since his place was booked he helped me find another place !! He spent a lot of time over phone with me recommending bunch of places to do when in PR. I took his recommendations for beaches in PR and was delighted. This is a great place to spend many nights and unwind.

Casa Flor is a little piece of paradise tucked away on a mountain top. The house and location were both absolutely gorgeous and exceeded all our expectations. The house is located in a remote area that takes some time to find, but adam was very helpful and gave great directions. As the house in in the mountains, it is a great place for outdoorsy people, with beautiful hikes and caves nearby. One of our favorite things about this place was the large deck with hammocks and a view of the forest canopy. All in all, a wonderful place!
