Go to Google and search for COQUI'S HIDEAWAY, and access our web site that way. *** 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.More

My husband and I stayed at Coqui's Hideaway in October. What is special about Coqui’s is that it is in a residential area, on private property, and away from the tourist areas. The accommodations were wonderful and Ray & Gwenn are terrific hosts. They were available if we needed anything and were generous with recommendations when we asked for them. The property is gorgeous and provides quite the relaxing atmosphere. We were welcomed to their guest house with a large bowl of fresh fruit from their sprawling, beautiful property. We enjoyed the pool almost every day and evening; it was a great way to unwind after a day of hiking or sight-seeing. Coqui’s is the perfect retreat. You can relax by the pool, hike the rainforest, or take a drive to do some shopping or touring. If you are looking for accommodations that are away from the hustle and bustle of the city, look no further. Ray and Gwenn have a wonderful property with gorgeous views and considerable privacy. This gem is a wonderful find! Some of the wonderful places we visited: Old San Juan: La Carreta - has amazing Mojito's. Their Cuban sandwich is one of the best I’ve had. The staff is very friendly. Scryer - is a local rum distillery with amazing drink combinations and great bartenders! Castillo San Felipe del Morro - great historical significance throughout the property and spectacular views of the ocean. Northeast Puerto Rico: One evening we did the Bio Bay tour by kayak in Fajardo. That is a "must do." We hiked the El Yunque National Forest which is literally steps away from the Hideaway. Luquillo Kiosks – a row of restaurants on Route 3 along the beach. Based on the online reviews, we ate at La Parrilla. We were sorely disappointed with both the food and service. The service was extremely slow and it wasn’t an especially busy night. I ordered the mofongo which is a dish served hot, yet it came cold. My husband’s steak was just okay. We left scratching our heads. The prices are not cheap, the ambience is geared more to beach goers and the food was not worthy of any stars. Cataño – Bacardi run distillery tour was nice. It has a “tourist” vibe to it, but we enjoyed the tour and learned how to make drinks – which we got to drink. San Juan: Bebo’s Café has an OUTSTANDING shrimp risotto. Another of the “best I’ve ever had.” Mofongo became one of our new-found favorite foods and we loved trying it at every eatery that served it. Ray and Gwenn have an incredible place. It is a truly wonderful, relaxing space. We enjoyed everything about the property and being able to truly unwind and unplug.

Booked a family vacation (three couples) for the week of Thanksgiving. I could not have expected a more perfect location! The house was clean, private and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware/appliances to make meal prep a breeze. The extra "little things" the hosts provide make Coqui's Hideaway a real gem. The proximity to San Juan, El Yunque and other surrounding areas make this house the perfect centralized location for all the touring needs. And if you want to keep a day or two just for lounging around the house, the pool area has everything you need. There is an outdoor kitchen and bathroom, so you don't have to run back and forth. The property foliage is fascinating to look at. I have not seen some of the flowering trees before and they were just beautiful! From the back patio, you don't just see a rainbow you see ALL the rainbows! I have already recommended Coqui's Hideaway to friends and family and I hope to return myself. As a bonus, it is evident the hosts truly care for the community and I find that very admirable. Definitely don't miss out on this.

Coqui’s Hideaway was the setting for one of our most memorable family vacations. It is so much more than a typical ‘vacation rental’! Our family of 4 (including 2 teens) spent 13 days at Coqui’s Hideaway. The house is in a convenient & gorgeous location. It was the perfect home base for our many adventures. (We explored El Yunque, Balneario Montserrat in Luquillo, Icacos Island, Mar Chiquita, Viejo San Juan, & more. We also hiked on a private trail from Coqui’s Hideaway to a gorgeous waterfall!) The house is very comfortable & we appreciated the option of renting either 2 or 3 bedrooms (we chose 2 bedroom option- & had more then enough space to spread out)! The house is beautifully decorated, & has good quality bedding & towels. It is very clean & bright. We had everything that we needed and more. The ceiling fans & AC keep the house very comfortable, however we barely used the air conditioning. It cools off at night, and we loved opening the windows and listening to the incredible sounds of the coquis & rain forest at night. The gardens are absolutely gorgeous. There are so many beautiful plants, orchids, fish ponds, tropical flowers & fruit trees. Every day I noticed some thing different that I had not seen before. It rained sporadically for a few minutes at a time, often followed by a rainbow! The pool is the perfect place to cool off after a day of exploring. We enjoyed cooking out at the grill by the pool, and even hung out during a rainstorm under the pergola. The full bathroom by the pool is another convenience. The hosts, Gwenn & Ray live on site & were available if we needed them. They are very respectful of their guest’s privacy and gave us plenty of space. When we arrived there were welcome baskets of fresh fruit from their garden, homemade bread, traditional Puerto Rican candies & supplies for making our own piña colada’s. This was such a thoughtful touch & a real treat! We thoroughly enjoyed the papayas, mangoes, avocados, bananas, passion fruit, miracle fruit & the other fruits they provided! We appreciated having the hosts on site, & enjoyed our conversations with Ray- who shared a lot of great stories & helpful tips throughout our stay. (We also relied on their blog, puertoricodaytrips.com for planning our excursions. Gwenn is a fantastic writer & her articles are so thorough & very helpful- especially for exploring PR ‘off the beaten path’). I was especially curious about conservation work that is being done in Puerto Rico & was thrilled to accompany Ray & Gwenn on their turtle watch (checking nesting sites of endangered leatherback sea turtles). We saw one baby turtle make its way to the ocean- an experience I will never forget! It was very hard to leave Coqui’s Hideaway! We hope we’re able to return again!!

Our family of 5 was amazed with this place! We absolutely loved walking the grounds of the property looking at the beautiful flowers, growing fruit trees and searching for a coqui (unsuccessfully unfortunately). Having our own pool and BBQ was the highlight of our trip. We packed in quite a bit of adventure during our stay (hiking El Yunque, snorkeling, beach hopping, exploring Old San Juan, etc) but we always looked forward to coming back to Coqui’s Hideaway to relax and swim. Ray and Gwen had everything we needed to cook and relax, from a tray to carry supplies to the grill, a refrigerator by the pool, beach chairs and sand toys, to beach towels—even a laundry line in the bathroom to hang our suits! Our priority for this trip was discovering and hiking El Yunque and the location of Coqui’s Hideaway was perfect for that. We also found it relatively close to Ceiba, Fajardo, and Old San Juan. We had plans to visit the West side of the island one day but abandoned those plans in favor of having our last day soaking up the views at Coqui’s Hideaway instead. It was one of our favorite days! Book this place and get ready to relax and have fun! Thank you Ray and Gwen for sharing your piece of paradise with us for the week.

I and my two teenage sons had the most wonderful experience at Coqui’s Hideaway. It's like a little paradise of your own tucked into the rainforest with your own pool and very luxurious home accommodation. We had plenty of space to enjoy each other’s company (we hiked to an amazing waterfall through the rainforest right from the property) AND to each do our own thing. Gwen and Ray were the perfect hosts; Always there when we needed them and invisible otherwise. The only time they appeared unasked was to show us that the endangered Puerto Rican parrot was making an appearance and we were there to witness yet another parrot showing up to join him. So exciting! It was truly restorative and beautiful and an easy drive to the coast for kayaking, surfing and stunning beaches. I cannot recommend this place enthusiastically enough. Go and treat yourself!

We were so lucky to book Coqui's Hideaway! Away from the crowds. A spacious, comfortable rental with all the amenities! Including coolers, beach towels and bags, chairs for trips to the beach. The night sounds were amazing! Wish I could have bottled them to bring home. The gardens on the property were amazing. I could wander there for hours! Amazing view from our private veranda and from poolside! I could go on for pages. Ray and Gwenn were excellent hosts who have truly thought of everything. Go there!

I almost hate to leave this review bc then they will always be booked when I want to go. Absolutely beautiful house, comfortable beds and furniture, very clean, and the acres are so well-maintained! Ray and Gwen have obviously put years and years of hard work into creating this tropical paradise. We will absolutely go back. Location was also fabulous! Very close to El Yunque, waterfalls and amazing beaches. Lots of privacy for family dinners by the pool overlooking paradise.

Beautiful, family friendly property with great pool. Central location: short drive to beaches, hiking, and other day trips. We took a trip to the Forts in Old San Juan, a snorkeling trip to Icacos Cay, a lazy beach day at Seven Seas beach, and a hiking trip in El Yunque Rain Forest.
