Welcome to our home, Casa Cielo. This property is located high in the beautiful mountains of Utuado, Puerto Rico where we are perched on a mountain top about 2,200 ft. above sea level. If you are looking to get away from your everyday life and experience what mother nature has to offer, then you've come to the right place. Be amazed with spectacular sightseeing, bird watching, walks in our natural environment or just grab that book that everyone's been talking about and you haven't had the time to read.
This private home is approximately 2,000 sq. ft. with ample space for your family and friends to relax and enjoy (sleeps 9). Our home boasts a master suite fit for a king with a queen size bed, a large bathroom with his and hers sinks, a huge garden tub with a separate shower & a private commode. We also have a second private room with another queen size bed and the third room that sleeps 5 people comfortably on the 2 modern bunk beds. Along with our well equipped Kitchen and a comfy Breakfast Nook area, the Dining room is furnished with a large table that sits eight and a Living room set that can accommodate up to 9-people comfortably. You will also have access to Wi-Fi and Chromecast to stream your favorite shows on our 50 inch TV.
Our favorite part of the home is by far the Back Porch with “The Hammock”. When you wake-up and walk out to this area that overlooks hundreds and hundreds of mountain tops called hummocks/mogotes, I promise you will be in AWE!!!
The views from this home are simply captivating! We are truly blessed to get to live here and honored to be able to share our little piece of heaven with you.
Many of our homes have hammocks, a grill, and all have basic cookware for you to use. We do need to know the exact amount of people and rooms you will use during your time with us as we lock rooms that are not in use. Since our prices are very modest, if your home has a washer and dryer we do not allow the use of these for stays under 7 days. Many of the homes have fruit trees and you are welcome to pick the fruit but be courteous to future guests. The garage is private and my office is also but the there is a desk you or the kids can use in the bunk bed room.
Interaction with Guests
We have many family and friends helping us to make your stay a memorable one. They clean the homes before you arrive, cook meals when requested, and truly help create the “culture” of your home when you need something. 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!
Other Things to Note
This is where the fun begins!!!
We encourage you to take a minute and read over our Activity Chart that will be sent to you by my lovely niece Katryel shortly after booking. This document was made to help you plan your ideal vacation, by providing you with A Few Days Worth of Things To Do and places to visit in and around the area. This document also offers information on how you can order authentic Puerto Rican meals that are delivered right to your door, and ways to book any one of the unforgettable Eco- Friendly Tours (hosted by local adventure companies) and information about the places locals like to go so that you can really get a taste of our rich & diverse culture.
We treat you with lots of respect and care so we expect the same back. You will enjoy your stay and the home but remember it is our home so please inform us of anything pertinent.
-Do not smoke anywhere inside the house.
-Keep it as clean as possible inside and out.
-No pets in the property at any time, and if you see strays outside, we ask that you don't feed them as they will never leave and we want to keep the homes clean and allergen free.
-Please do not move our furniture but if you feel the need to, put stuff back as some of our staff are petite.
-We do not allow parties, events &/or unregistered guests or visitors (including locals) without our permission.
-Some of these properties are ours and several are owned by individuals (many elderly) that have trusted us to share their homes with the world using our management and marketing systems. We only work with people who also want you to explore and experience some of our rich and diverse culture. Since many of these owners are elderly and all the homes are in residential areas, I encourage you NOT to book with us if you are not lovely, clean, honest and respectable.
We are honored you are considering us to help “host a life-time of memories”!!!

Utuado Mountain Home "Casa Cielo" with Wi-Fi Utuado, Puerto Rico
Additional Location Information
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.
You will need to rent a car as there is no public transit up in the mountains. Once you book with us, Katryel sends you a welcome letter w/ written directions, GPS coordinates and extras. The extras is a long list of many things to do in and around the area including local spots to enjoy. All of the roads are paved so any car is fine. The most you'll find is some pot holes but you can drive through or around them slowly and be ok. We usually suggest renting for Dollar Car Rental (Verdanza Hotel Branch) or any other MAJOR car rental company. If you are on an unpaved road, you are lost! :)
Both the Ponce and San Juan Airports are 1.5 hours away. Aguadilla is 1 hour away.
Under 15 minutes from the home you have a small supermarket, post office, pharmacy, two bakeries a gas station and several restaurants. There is an awesome sports pub with a great owner in Lares (the next small town over), and we even have a small computer, internet & copy center in front of the local super market!
You can stop in Utuado or Lares for larger grocery stores or a redbox DVD before heading up into the town.

This house is gorgeous with incredible mountain views and an awesome floor plan! I went with a group of 7 other missionaries and this house was close enough to the location we were serving at but, also beautiful and luxurious enough to feel like a five star hotel suite.

We've stayed with adam before and we love visiting his beautiful mountain town for long weekends. When I saw that he had such a stunning new house available, I couldn't contain my excitement and immediately booked another long weekend.
The drive up to this house is a adventure, but in a good way. Every turn presents one stellar view after another, and adams perfect directions kept us from getting lost.
We were greeted by Millie, our sweet and caring house keeper for the weekend. She cooked us both breakfast and dinner, and my husband and I thought it was better than a certain famous restaurant in San Juan.
Now, the house is the star of the whole weekend. It's huge! I felt like a movie star, or executive lounging on the plush sofas staring out at the view. You can see the ocean! It's like 30 miles away, but we're so high (2,225 ft) that there is nothing between us. You can also see the areciebo telescope. The master bedroom has a big comfy bed, I slept like a baby. I also really appreciated the WiFi connection because I was able to stay in touch with my clients and even get some work done. This home is a incredible bargain, I can't believe a executive style home is available at this price.
Another highlight of our stay was a trip down to the river, there are some beautiful swimming holes, and I can;t think of a better way to cool off than a dip in a pristine mountain river on a hot afternoon.
All in all, Our stay with adam was another top notch vacation. We had so much fun, we're going back again in 2 weeks when we have family visiting us from the states. I cannot wait to share this authentic Puerto Rican experience with my loved ones
