This beautifully appointed 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath luxury stay is located on the northeast coast of Puerto Rico, steps away from water so blue it will take your breath away. This breezy, quiet and private penthouse has a commanding view of the ocean and surrounding mountains. Imagine taking in the magnificent sunset from the balcony hammock after enjoying a full day of all the sights and sounds that this celebrated Caribbean island has to offer.

Just minutes away from the most popular spots on the Island: El Yunque National Rain Forest, Plentiful Beaches, Bio Luminescent Bay, Fine Dining, Golf, Hiking, Shopping, and more! We are located 18 miles from San Juan Airport, just next to the Westin Rio Mar Beach Resort, in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. w

A vacation for all!: • For active vacationers.

The ladies might enjoy a shopping excursion to Old San Juan, Plaza Las Americas, or Belz Outlet Mall while the gentlemen tee off at one of Puerto Rico's many celebrated golf courses, two of which are located literally just down the street at the Westin Rio Mar Beach and Golf Resort. Night life is just as enticing with dancing and drinks in San Juan where full-service casinos and night clubs are abundant. Or, take everyone for a once in a lifetime experience kayaking in Fajardo's Bio Luminescent bay, just minutes away.

A QUIET PLACE TO RELAX AFTER A BUSY DAY

  • 4 of 5
Casa Bella was a quiet, relaxing condo that we really enjoyed after a busy day out and about. It was only about 10 minutes to the beach by car. The rainforest was only a few miles away and Old San Juan was about 30 minutes by car. The highway was just down the road, but it was very quiet, no car noises. We were able to cook whatever meals we wanted which was great. In the morning we could see the iguanas in the trees and enjoy a view of the water from the balcony. In the evening we would go up on the roof and watch the stars. The condo was very clean and new looking. The only thing that we would have liked is to be able to walk to a beach. I would recommend this property. Our experience was very positive .

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
The pictures don't even describe half the beauty of the place. Place is spacious, great views and very clean. Every thing worked perfectly and well kept. I would recommend having a well planned trip because we didn't and most of our activities ended up being in San Juan (30 min drive). If you want to spend most of your time near the rain forest this is definitely the place for you. This is an overall great place and highly recommended.

GREAT LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5
The location of this villa is perfect! You are 25 minutes from Old San Juan, 5 minutes from the best beach in Puerto Rico, and 20 minutes from the ferry to the outer islands. The villa it's self is immaculate and well stocked. You have everything from beach chairs, coolers and beach towels. There is no pool- but the near by beach is so beautiful, you'll never miss it! Lots of great restaurants close by.

THE CONDO WAS GORGEOUS!

  • 5 of 5
It was the best condo I've stayed in. Very clean. There were a lot of extras that we didn't expect. Like beach chairs and umbrellas, coolers for the beach. Even 'After Sun' lotion! The kitchen was well stocked and simple things were there like spices-even Ketchup and Mustard. The it was an amazing weekend!

GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to PR. We were very pleased with the condo, access to the resort pools and beach, and close proximity to the rain forest. The condo was clean, spacious, and nicely decorated. We really appreciated the central air for sleeping. Maria, the owner, is helpful and easy to work with.

We loved the night sounds of the Coqui frogs, and other bugs. Very loud, but unique .... and you get used to it.

During our 2 week stay, most of our mornings were spent by the pool, and afternoons on outings. It takes about an hour to get to Old San Juan. And the drivers in PR are definitely less "rule" oriented than many places on the mainland .... but if you learn to drive like a local, it will be less frustrating!

GPS here is not that accurate, but a good suggestion to lead you to the area. We have spent a lot of time in the hawaiian islands, and thought you really couldn't get that lost on an island .... we were wrong. PR is a very large island, with terrible signage ..... bring your sense of humor and patience.

Two places we really enjoyed eating: Old San Juan .... Punte De Vista--the mofongo was exceptional. Don't be fooled by the "hole in the wall" appearance. The food is wonderful, and the owner is very, very friendly. Also, Tasca Olelelolai in Fajardo is excellent. The restaurant is upscale in appearance, and the view overlooking the harbor is beautiful. They are mostly open evenings. Check before going. They have a great appetizer menu. We ordered 3 of those items, and a main entree to share among 4 people, and of course, dessert. Everything was fantastic.

We never really saw any mosquitoes, but we did get bit. So if that's a problem for you, I recommend applying bug spray when out in the evening ..... it works!!

We knew before going to PR that they have a ferrel dog problem. We didn't see as many dogs as we were expecting, but we did distribute 34 lbs of food. We stopped when we saw dogs and left food and water for them. Most of the dogs are hesitant to get too close to people, so they stay back and approach the food when you leave.

Great vacation and experience. Thank you to Maria for providing a great place to stay, and a lot of useful information.
