About Us

mom_dadPuerto Rico Vacation Home was founded in 2002 by Jim and Marilyn Meighan. They inherited a home on the island from Jim’s father–a retired engineer who moved to the island in the 1960s.  They felt strongly that they wanted to keep their connection to the beautiful island of Puerto Rico–but weren’t quite ready to retire. Marilyn thought wouldn’t it be a wonderful place to transform into the vacation rental?  They put their plan into action. They worked tirelessly to paint, remodel, and furnish the property  in Las Piedras, PR transforming it into Casa de Loma “House on the Hill.”  The cheerful, charming home has been visited from guests from all over the United States, Europe and as far away as Russia. Over the past 10+ years hundreds of guest have stayed at one of their four vacation rentals in Puerto Rico. The Meighan’s believe that Puerto Rico is the perfect destination for both adventurous souls and sun-worshipers looking to recharge.

Casa de Loma got a new private pool during the home’s renovation to the vacation rental.

Several years passed, and the business grew. The couple felt confident that it was time to add another property to their “retirement” business. Their real estate agent told them about a beautiful casita in the hills of Humacao with breathtaking views of the caribbean, and Casa Soleada was added to their rental business.

Casa Soleada’s incredible Caribbean views sold the Meighan’s on adding a second rental property.

Then, quickly two other properties were added to complete the offering; Villa Palmira, a cheerful home with a 30 second walk to Humacao’s beautiful sandy beach. Also, Villa Familia, large home inside the world-class resort Palmas Del Mar.

Villa Familia offers guests access to Palmas Del Mar, a world-class resort with amenities including beaches, golf and a beach club.

Villa Palmira is a fun beach house literally 38 seconds walk from one of the Puerto Rico’s beautiful, natural beaches. 

The Meighan’s colorful flare, and wonderful appointments are found in each property — from the comfortable beds, and seating–to the well equipped kitchens and baths with linens. They have prided themselves in offering a comfortable, fun, safe and affordable vacation rental to visitors in Puerto Rico. Will you be our next guest? Contact us!
