Post-MARIA Update (16 February 2018) After 163 days without power, our electricity was restored today! We expect our power to come and go over the next couple of weeks. During this time, we will be finishing up our inside make-overs (we completely re-did 2 bathrooms, and repainted the family room & kitchen areas), and do major cleaning and pressure-washing. We anticipate being ready to accept guests beginning in mid-March.
Fabuloso! That's all we can say! We had a wonderful time at Coqui's Hideaway. While we enjoyed manhy of the local sites (La Mina Falls, Luquillo kiosks, BioBay, etc), our most favorite family time was spent dipping in the pool, enjoying the one-of-a-kind views, and listening to all the wonderful night sounds from our porch right here at Coqui's. The best part was hearing the coqui frog in person. This was definitely a trip we will not soon forget. Thanks!

Coqui's Hideaway is a true hideaway treasure! Our first night we enjoyed piña coladas by the pool, and our last night we concluded our time here with piña coladas on the balcony - both with amazing views. Using Ray's day trip instructions, we visited El Yunque. Ray's suggestions were accurate and thorough, and we wouldn't have had as great a time without them. Our favorite night out, we went to "Pasta y Pueblo" for dinner. we all highly recommend! They had unbelievable seafood and pasta, along with great options for vegetarians. Located right on the beach, featuring awesome live music, it was the perfect night in Puerto Rico. What makes Coqui's Hideaway truly special is Ray's enthusiasm for the island, and his talent for sharing that enthusiasm with others. Thank you for this wonderful experience.

Wow, what an amazing place! Wish we could have stayed longer. Every part of this stay was wonderful. The house is the best appointed house that we have ever stayed in. The pool area is wonderful, with its refrigerator and bathroom. The view is amazing, and we loved every bit of this part of the trip. We are sad to leave. Thank you Ray and Gwenn for the use of your house.

Coqui's Hideaway has been a great experience. We loved the welcome basket and the beautiful arrangement. Your property is fund to explore, and sitting on the veranda in the morning is unbeatable. Thanks for all you do for the animals of Puerto Rico! Ruby and Major were adorable. Hiking El Yunque Peak, Kayaking in Humacao, and snorkeling the private beaches off Vieques were my highlights! There is still so much more to do in Puerto Rico.

This week was as amazing and special as our first visit five years ago. The garden areas are more beautiful than ever! The outdoor baño was a really nice addition to the pool/patio area. You both are wonderful people and great hosts. As in NJ, we think of you as friends!

What an amazing place. We loved to enjoy your home, your gardens, and the nice pool & BBQ area with amazing views to the island. The children ate every day bananas fresh from the tree! We visited Old San Juan, El Yunque rain forest, Cascada La Mina, Torre de Yokahu, the Big Tree trail, Arecibo Observatory, Cueva Ventana, Charco Azul natural pool, and several beaches on the way! Unfortunately, this nice place is so far away from Germany. We would come back if possible! Thank you for everything.

What an enchanting corner of the world! We spent our week snorkeling, in Old San Juan, hiking in El Yunque, and at Balneario Monserrate. Each day began with coffee on the veranda, and ended by the pool — the perfect start and end to our days. Thank you for sharing your home. We had an amazing week!

Where do we begin? Staying here at Coqui's Hideaway was a wonderful experience! Me, David, and the girls enjoyed our stay so much because we felt at home here. We were able to enjoy El Morro in Old San Juan, and we even took advantage of the trail that goes around the city walls. We spent a day at Balneario Monserrate Beach in Luquillo. Absolutely stunning views, and the water was perfect. Unfortunately, our last day it rained and ruined all our plans for the day. So we decided to have lunch at Jibaro's kiosk #22 in Luquillo. And even when the rain did not stop we went swimming in the rain at the pool! What's a little downpour? We ended our last day with dinner at Richie's Cafe. Ray & Gwenn, you guys went above and beyond when we needed it most. It is greatly appreciated, and won't go unseen. Thank you so much. Can't wait to come back!

Our stay was fantastic, and exceeded our expectations. The house and accommodations were perfect for our family — space to unwind, nap when needed, prepare food, etc. This was our first trip outside the mid-west with the boys, and staying at Coqui's Hideaway helped keep everyone happy. We're all eager to return!

Thanks for everything! We had a great time bird-watching in the gardens — lots of bananaquits and hummingbirds! Mom really loved the flowers and fruit trees. The Revolution Pizza place in the Luquillo kiosks was fantastic — definitely recommend the Pesto Pizza. Thank you for your work with Puerto Rico's "satos" (and for matching the donations!). We hope to come again!

This was our second visit to Coqui's and, once again, we had a wonderful time. Unfortunately, it was "too cold" to use the pool, but we still enjoyed sitting next to it while grilling our dinner. We used your site for ideas on thing to do, and one of them - Cueva del Indio - we went to see. It was one of the best times we've ver had here! Thanks also for doing all you could when the power was out, and making it more bearable. Hope to see you for stay #3!

This was mine and Kyle's first time in Puerto Rico, and I couldn't be happier that we spent it here! The house, garden, pool, and view are beautiful and spectacular. Your website turned out to be a fantastic resource to us, and we had an exciting, adventurous, and inspiring trip with its help.

Thank you for the experience of Coqui's Hideaway. First, we went to Old San Juan, then to Vieques (with some sea-sickness on the way back), and lastly here … Coqui's Hideaway where there is rain forest in your backyard, and it's bigger than our lot of wild area at home. You could pick a banana right off the tree and eat it. We recommend doing yoga by the pool. Here is a haiku I thought up: Save the Best for Last, Waterfalls Jungle Swim, Coqui's Hideaway. We loved our stay!

A magical week away in the perfect setting with the very best hosts. We were able to enjoy kikes in El Yunque, in addition to wonderful day trips. We have also added a new member to our family, thanks to Ray & Gwenn's tireless efforts to re-home the island's left-behind 4-legged creatures.
