Nestled in the lush foothills of the El Yunque National Forest in Rio Grande Puerto Rico, Coqui's Hideaway vacation rental offers adults and families a tranquil rain forest retreat, away from the crowds of the resorts and big city hotels. Our location, in the mountains adjacent to the rain forest in the north-east of Puerto Rico, offers the perfect combination of beach and rainforest vacations. We're minutes from world-class beaches and the El Portal Visitor Center in the national forest. And San Juan is just a short 35-minute drive using Route 66.
We're conveniently located midway between the San Juan and Fajardo areas. So close ... but it feels like a world away.
At Coqui's Hideaway, you can enjoy your vacation holiday in your own completely furnished 2 or 3 bedroom guest house with panoramic ocean views right from your private veranda. We offer many amenities, including a beautiful in-ground swimming pool, fully equipped kitchen (with dishwasher), air conditioning throughout the house, washer/dryer, satellite TV, and complementary WIFI internet, all in an eco-oriented setting, with El Yunque as a backdrop.
Compare the value of Coqui's Hideaway to what you would get for the same price at a hotel. We think you'll agree that you get more for your money by staying with us. And that's important in today's economy.
When you stay with us at Coqui's Hideaway, you will be the only guests on our property and you'll have the privacy you want during your vacation. You'll have the freedom to enjoy our 9-acre estate, which is at the end of a cul-de-sac, in a residential area, neighbored by other private "local" residences. You won't see other tourists. You won't see crowds. You won't see high-rise condos. You won't hear traffic. You will enjoy the Puerto Rican countryside the way it was meant to be - falling asleep to the sounds of the Coqui, waking up to the sounds of roosters, and breathing in the crisp mountain air.

“The ideal vacation place!”
We were two couples, veteran travelers, who enjoy hiking and exploring what an area has to offer. We avoid gated communities and structured tours. We stayed six days at this beautiful and unusual location. The experienced was perfect for our needs. First, this is a place you truly enjoy when returning after a day of sightseeing or hiking. The high location hugs the tropical rainforest providing a vista of the coast, islands and on the horizon, San Juan. It is magnificent, especially while sitting on our private veranda reading, having a drink or a meal. It was so captivating that I was happy to spend time at our private hideaway rather than trying to take in all the advertised sights and experiences. I especially enjoyed walking the property's 9 acres of lawns and tropical vegetation including tropical fruits, palm trees, orchids and every conceivable fruit and flower. Gwen and Ray, our hosts provided us with the tropical fruits from their beautiful property and let us pick what we liked. How nice to have hosts who adorn your quarters with a vase of bird-of-paradise and other tropical flowers. Every need was provided for. The accommodations were roomy and spotless and beautifully and tastefully decorated. The full kitchen and dining area were convenient and spotless, as was the entire complex. The pool for our personal use was very handy. I can go on and on about the quality of the property, but the jewel in this crown were the hosts. Gwen and Ray were there to answer our questions, suggest activities and provide background information on the area. Where do you find a host who will show you how to crack a coconut properly? Explain a tropical fruit? Where the best beach is and where to park when you get there? How to best see Old San Juan? There are people who know first hand all the tourist offering on the island and are happy to assist. And we didn't have to share these wonderful hosts because Coquis is a one unit hideaway. Their hospitality made this one of our most memorable vacations. We will be back to Puerto Rico.
“Beautiful house and perfect location, plenty of room for our Family.”
Ray and Gwen were great hosts, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. We had five people in our group from 7-52 years old, plenty of space to relax together or apart. Beautiful veranda, spacious pool area and well kept gardens to wander through. Exceptionally clean!
“Gracious hosts, amazing facility and location”
Gwen and Ray warmly welcomed our family and were readily available for tips on sights, activities, shopping and restaurants. Their property is quite simply beautiful. Amazing grounds of wide variety of plants, trees and flowers. Gorgeous home and was very well appointed, everything you could need for great stay. Located adjacent to El Yunque National Park was made multiple visits a breeze. Our hosts helped us with setting up zip line adventure and trip to Bio Bay, both were peak experiences. They even stored our excess luggage when we visited Culebra, where Gwen and Ray had more tips. They were instrumental in making this a family trip that will be cherished.
“Best family with Teens stay ever!”
Our kids; 14, 16 18, need some space of their own. As their parents, we need some too! 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, open floor plan for the rest. Perfect! A wonderful back deck off the master; listening to the tree frogs & other rainforest creatures at night was wonderful! The private pool, with grill & bathroom was an excellent addition. Gwenn & Ray were wonderful hosts; there when needed; but never a bother. Wasan't a huge" house, but so comfortable for a family, even ones younger than ours. We loved the short drive to the rainforest: spent 3 days hiking & getting in waterfalls. The house was equipped with everything needed, including ice chests.
“Coqui's Hideaway is a slice of paradise!”
Trip Advisor reviewers are spot on in their reviews of Coqui's! This place is such a beautiful respite, in between our high adventure trips (Kalichi Adventures & Kayaking/Snorkeling Culebra), we loved just hanging out at Coqu's! Each morning, I especially enjoyed reading poolside in between pool exercises waiting for the men to wake up. The guys equally enjoyed the pool most nights watching the sun set and afterwards would pop in one of the many movies from the Hideaways collection. Ray has mastered the art of being a hostess - always available for questions but mostly out of sight allowing guests to feel as if they own Coqu's while there.
Great place to stay in the tropical rain forest. Very comfortable and clean accommodation with all amenities and a warm welcome from the hosts, which even includes a goodie basket with fruit from the garden and treats to be getting on with. Near to the sea, San Juan and the National Park if you want to move around, but just relax in the garden, by the pool or on local walks, and enjoy the variety of flora and fauna all around you. Very peaceful and relaxing.
Ray and Gwenn do a fabulous job making you feel welcome but they are never intrusive on your privacy. The house was immaculately clean and so comfortable. The arrangement of fresh flowers from the property as well as the fresh fruits and gift basket were icing on the cake and this is probably our favorite place that we have ever stayed. We rented this house to get a feel for actually living in a tropical location as opposed to just staying at a hotel and it was perfect for that. The attention to detail was phenomenal and the recommendations that they made for restaurants and things to do on their website were spot on. This rental was clean, comfortable, fun, convenient and even priced well. We would not change a thing!
This is a great place to stay to enjoy Puerto Rico. Ray and Gwenn provide everything you need in the house and all the advice you want about places to go and things to do. The privacy and beautiful location of the house are hard to match. Old San Juan is a half hour or so away, and one of the nicest beaches you will ever enjoy is not much more than 15 minutes away in Luquillo. The rainforest, of course, is a highlight.
“Family Hanging with Coqui”
Our family had a wonderful 2 night stay at Coquis Hideaway in april. We wanted a quite place to relax while we were exploring El Yunque and Luquillo Beach. This place really is a hidden gem! The process of renting and setting up our reservation was a breeze. Ray and Gwen are the perfect mix of organization and fun. I felt very comfortable sending in my deposits. Don't be alarmed as you come to the house its in the rain forest but once you are behind the gate you feel very safe and sound. The grounds and house are perfectly maintained. The home is cozy, comfortable and clean. They have really thought of every detail as the home is perfectly appointed. You feel right at home with the welcome basket they provide. Even better are the amazing views from the home's back porch and pool. The pool is a little small but extremely well kept and clean!! The set up by the pool with the fridge, bar, bathroom, table and chairs is amazing. Once you are in the pool and looking out to the forest and city you feel like your in a dream. We traveled with two kids age 3 and 7 and a senior age 72 and the house worked out perfectly. We hope to return to Coquis one day soon. It really was the perfect hideaway.
“An unexpected delightful "hide away" with all amenities, in the”
Very helpful owners (pre visit and during visit) with clear and useful instructions and guidance; apartment was clean, very well appointed, and perfectly located for our day trips to the rain forrest; pool area and back porch (for evening cocktails) were unexpected delights. We were only 2 people, but apartment was plenty big for another couple or a family. Nearby dog was a barker during one night.
