Le logement
We built the bungalow as a refuge in case of a strong hurricane and as a guest house for family and friends who would come and visit. Year after year they suggested that we rent the bungalow to tourists who would love to live the rainforest ambient, our experience as architects in sharing with them Old San Juan or rainforest tips. Well we gave-it a try. The 408 SF apartment is decorated in eclectic retro-modern Caribbean style with souvenirs we have picked-up in our trips in the Caribbean and it is private, relaxing and magical I would say. The 408 SF roof terrace, is a solarium during the day and a star gazing platform during the night and a wonderful BBQ nook for you to enjoy in your total privacy. The compound is fully solar referred to as Net-Zero Plus, meaning that we produce more electrical energy than we consume. Also, we have been harvesting the rain water, recycling and organic farming for more than 15 years.

While being here, you will breathe the healthiest rainforest air rich in oxygen, ozone and free of most urban pollutants as well as being exposed to healing sun rays from 10-11 AM or 3-4 PM.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This listing is for the Garden Deck apartment (Room # 1, at ground level) which is handicapped accessible. Guests with mobility limitations should opt for this apartment. Sorry NO CHILDREN under sixteen (16)
For others, If the Garden Deck apartment is not available, check on the Kokianoha Rainforest Eco-Bungalow / Roof Terrace apartment listing (Room #2 - upstairs, not handicapped accessible).

Accès des voyageurs
Guests will find keys to the main entrance gate and apartment in the assigned lockbox outside of main gate and are welcome to park their car in the designated space, use our pool, sunbathe in our terrace and enjoy a small garden next to the parking spot. We acknowledge our guests privacy and we respect that. In occasions we may gather together, if they desire, to chat, exchange tour ideas and help them program their visits. I offer an optional day tour to Old San Juan at an extra cost so guests can see the historic city and its monuments thru the eyes of an architect living and teaching architecture in Puerto Rico for more than 25 years. Also you may visit us at KOKIANOHA in (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) for more pictures of our property and of adventures and things we recommend you consider while staying in our place.

Autres remarques
In general, we recommend that a great vacation to Puerto Rico in a short period of time should consider the following destinations:

1) At least 2 nights in Old San Juan or in Condado, or Ocean Park or Isla Verde, but definitely DO NOT miss to visit Old San Juan
2) At least 2 days in the Rainforest and definitely DO NOT miss visiting the Rainforest
3) And if you have extra time, at least 2 days be that in Culebra, Vieques, Guánica, Caborojo, Rincón, Isabela or Aguadilla.

The neighborhood is at the edge of the El Yunque National Rainforest. Very few neighbors and a lot of nature. It is a safe place and we will make sure you feel safe in our place as well.

Magdalena and I are both architects and are both in love with nature. She obtained her Masters in Architecture at the University of Puerto Rico and I obtained my Masters at Cornell University. In 2001 we opened our private practice and I also teach at the University of Puerto Rico since 1988. As a full professor I have been appointed Associate Dean and Acting Dean as well as president of the Personnel Commitee. I teach an undregraduate architectural design studio as well as a professional practice course at the graduate level. My passion is drawing and sketching and taking my students to sketch in Old San Juan as well as organize travelling studios to Europe. My wife's passion is gardening and has an organic vegetable and spice garden. Our daughters are 27, 15 and 8. The eldest one lives in London developing her theater career, the middle sibling is in a specialized music school developing her voice (she is a soprano) and the youngest one is in gymnastics. Our profession and our daughters keep us very busy during the week and during the weekends we love to stay home and work in the gardens and maintaining our property which is about an acre of land. 1n 1999 we built the guest house with the 2 purposes: One, to become a refuge in case of a very strong hurricane (since our home is made out of wood) and second, for our family to stay when they came to visit. We always had comments on why didn't we rent our guest house apartment to tourists since the place is so beautiful: the surrounding rainforest is magestic and our place is magical, quiet and so relaxing. Well after many years of attempts to convince us, we have decided to give-it a try: Rent to special people who want to stay and enjoy the wonders of the tropical rainforest and if they desire I can take them to a very special day tour to Old San Juan, or the Yunque National Forest trails or organize them a unforgettable sailing trip. Come visit our place and enjoy and see Puerto Rico in a whole different way!
