ABOUT CASA WURSTER
Experience an authentic Puerto Rican vacation away from the typical tourist areas! Our lovely custom homes, located on the southeastern tip of the island, directly off Route 3, are truly hidden Puerto Rican gems. Our property is perfect for individual families or larger groups and families that want to vacation together, yet have plenty of personal space. Setting up a home base that allows you to explore the island, while feeling like you have your own privacy and space, is the secret to a stay at Casa Wurster.
Our gated properties are uniquely situated on a beautiful bay protected by a coral reef, and our swimmable beach is a great place to relax. While we know you will want to explore the island, many of our guests never want to leave the property because of the access to the beach, private swimming pools, pickleball court, and the beautiful mountaintop views of the Puerto Rican sunset on our 15-acre property. Local restaurants and grocery stores are just a few minutes away, giving you the conveniences of a home away from home.
BEACH BLISS~ Gorgeous beachfront home; 3 bedrooms / 2 baths. Sleeps 7. (8 if at least 1 is a child.)
SEA BREEZE~ Airy home with high ceilings and a large, open living room / kitchen combination; 4 bedrooms / 3 baths. Sleeps 9. Two master suites!
SEA VIEW~ Spacious home with large balconies; 4 bedrooms / 3.5 baths. Sleeps 9. (10 if at least 1 is a child.)
Guests in all our homes have access to the beach via a walkway at the edge of the Beach Bliss property, as well as the breathtaking views and sunsets from our panoramic lookout area at the top of our property!
For our guests who like to stay active, you’ll find plenty to do on our property, including hiking and exploring our 15 acres, and playing pickleball, basketball, and cornhole. And while you’re exploring, you may even catch a glimpse of some large, colorful iguanas!
Our Casa Wurster property offers private, heated pools. The private SEA BREEZE pool and gazebo are located directly behind the home, and the private SEA VIEW pool and gazebo are located in front of the home as you enter the property. While BEACH BLISS does not have a pool in its yard, from May through November, BEACH BLISS guests will have access to their own private QUESTOVER pool up the hill with gorgeous panoramic views and cool breezes, or to the SEA VIEW or SEA BREEZE pool, based on availability. Beach Bliss does not have a pool available December through April.
EXPLORE THE ISLAND OF ENCHANTMENT
LOCAL BEACHES: Of course, the beach directly in front of our property is our favorite because it’s right out our door, but our customized digital map will take you to several other beaches you can explore. There are 2 other large beaches just around the corner from us, and several others you can explore within a 20 minute drive.
KAYAK, JET SKI RENTALS, AND MORE: Adventure and Watersports Patillas, just 5 minutes away, offers all kinds of beach equipment rentals, plus unique local area tours, as well as tours to some of the larger popular tourist spots in Puerto Rico. Online booking is available, or call 787-710-4297 for additional information.
CATAMARAN SNORKELING EXCURSION: Our favorite excursion! Departs from Marina Puerto Del Rey in Fajardo. Book online even before you come to Puerto Rico. Plan to leave the house around 8am; it’s a scenic 1 hour and 20 minute drive. It’s also fun to combine this outing with an evening bio bay kayaking trip (see below).
BIOLUMINESCENT BAY KAYAKING: Truly amazing if the weather and the moonlight are right. And great to do after the catamaran trip, since you’ll be up near Fajardo already. Microorganisms called “dinoflagellates” glow when the water is stirred. You will kayak about 20 minutes through the mangrove trees to Laguna Aguas Prietas. This trip is only worth doing when the moonlight is minimal. Check this moon chart to see which evenings are best. Several good companies offer the bio-bay tours.
HIKING IN THE RAIN FOREST: El Yunque is a 29,000 acre National Park and rain forest. Wear comfortable shoes and bring a backpack with snacks, water, and possibly a rain jacket. IMPORTANT: You must enter from the north side of the island. The entrance from the south is closed.
CARABALI RAIN FOREST PARK: Located on the outskirts of the rain forest, Carabali offers a fun 4-wheeler tour, along with horseback riding.
ZIPLINING: Toroverde Adventure Park offers top-rated ziplining. Absolutely amazing! Reserve online in advance. Take a jacket – it will be cooler up in the mountains. About a 90-minute drive. Open Thursday – Sunday. NOTE: You will be on some very curvy mountain roads to get there.
EXPLORE AND SHOP IN OLD SAN JUAN: Also visit one of the forts while there. El Morro is our favorite—truly amazing! Bring an umbrella and wear sunscreen—you’ll likely experience both intense sun and a popup shower.
