 Mary Lee and Binkie are waiting for you!

Mary Lee and BinkieWe are 2 hours from San Juan on the Southwest coast.  This is the true Puerto Rico, and you will find the people warm and friendly. We face the Caribbean, with beautiful views of mangrove islands, and the ocean breaking on coral reefs in the distance. We border the Guanica State Forest.

All units have their own very special tropical décor and range in size from efficiencies to 3 bedrooms.  The bedrooms are air-conditioned, and each apartment has a complete and very well equipped kitchen, (including microwave and a large variety of small appliances), private entrance, patio with BBQ and a view of the sea.  All are just minutes from several lovely beaches.

The friendly informal atmosphere features rest … relaxation … beaching … snorkeling … and fishing.  For joggers and walkers it’s a perfect spot, and for birdwatchers this is IT!  The Guanica State forest (designated by the United Nations as a Biosphere Reserve) is, also, a bird sanctuary. It has a greatest variety of birds on the island.  One week a guest spotted 60 species.

Looking for beaching?  We offer (for a small fee) transportation to Guilligans’s Island with its bathtub bay and to Ballena, a long white sandy peninsula.  Also, nearby are many delightful coves and the public beach at Caña Gorda … Looking for snorkeling?  We have gorgeous coral reefs as well as lots of mangroves to explore.

For Kayakers (we rent single, double or triple) our bay, which is protected by mangrove islands, is a perfect spot for a short paddle to several secluded beaches.

If you just want to sit in the sun, we have the best weather on the island with the lowest annual rainfall.  At ocean front we have 2 docks plus 2 decks.  The tropical breezes are gentle and consistent.
You’re right!!! We have an unspoiled tropical paradise which is a combination of God created beauty and manmade comfort … (Also as Mary Lee says “it sure beats shoveling snow”!!!)
