Carole's Rain Forest Villas

$7,875 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 35 people in 14 months
During Hurricane Maria, my kitchen roof was blown off, my appliances in the kitchen were ruined.  All my trees are down in my yard and I need to have them chopped up and removed.  My septic line was broken.  All my electrical lines are down.  the light post, entry gate and fences are down.  Several windows in the house are blown out and I've not been able to find them.  I am 72 years old and depend upon my guest home for income.  This is my season and I will not be able to accommodate any guests this year unless I am able to get my property repaired.  I have no insurance on my property because I cannot afford it.  I have not been able to get estimates for the repairs at this time because the island communications are down.  I need funds as soon as possible.

Dear Friends,

The Holiday Season starts around Thanksgiving and continues over til after 3 Kings Day.
I have so much to be thankful for. Had it not been for all your kindness and generosity, and your love and support, I would never have survived.
It’s time you come down and see for yourselves how fast the island is returning.
We now have a fabulous full view from Coco Beach to San Juan. Perfect for those of you who like to star gaze. The only thing missing is you, so come on down.
New Years is a time for changes too. As much as I love my home, it has been quite a challenge these last few years trying to keep up with all the repairs, plus I’m not getting any younger. . So I have decided to list the property for sale. I am sure it will not sell anytime soon. So please, come for a visit.
I’ll be here a few more years.
Happy Holiday to you all
And may you be surrounded by Love and Peace.
Carole
Mucho Besos.

Yesterday we received electricity. Everyone celebrating. I didn’t know what to do first, so I took a hot shower and went to bed.
Today we are having friends over to help with the clean up. Then after a few hours of hard labor, everyone retreats to the kitchen.
FEMA did put a tarp over the kitchen roof, but in the meantime, we wait for supplies to arrive from the states
Things are getting back to normal. Traffic will always be the same.
This coming week we will be having more rain and more tourist visiting the island.

Luquillo beach looks like it was cleaned and ready for fun and
Restaurants are reopening
The rain forest remains closed due to landslides. But there are trails to travel were you must get out and explore. And the rivers are raging
Come visit the island. Same beautiful beaches. Same slow pace.
Life is good

I have enclosed a few Fotos Stateside companies got us hooked up yesterday
Missouri and Illinois thank you.
It was a hoot to watch them.
I’m still working on cleaning up and hopefully I can paint . And that depends on the weather.

See attached Fotos.
