I'm a NY based film producer, and in the summer of 2011 we had a short drama we wanted to film in a beach front location in Puerto Rica. We were infinitely lucky to have come across Luis and Villa Orleans. This was one of the smoothest shoots in my 8 years making films. Luis went out of his way to help us with location management, every day logistics and supplied us daily with his seemingly endless optimism and positive energy. Villa Orleans is very cosy, well laid out, full of any amenity one might wish for. Even with the crew of 12 there was enough space to find privacy, and common areas provided great outlet for communal work and fun. Did i mention 10 steps that separate the dining area and the beach and the star fruits from above our heads for breakfast?
The place was so good that 6 of us stayed for several extra days after the shoot was over. I plan to go to Villa Orleans for vacations every year as long as Luis owns it.More
