Ample, beautifully decorated (West Elm furniture), 1664 sqft duplex unit with a generous balcony that will make you feel embracing the shoreline and savoring the nights. Ocean views are striking as you open the door to the main living areas, located on the third floor of the building, while the bedrooms remain in the second floor, providing for privacy but maintaining a sense of connection to the beach.

If you are looking for adventure and sightseeing, there are infinite alternatives: from water sports to horseback riding, El Yunque Rain Forest and Old San Juan, boat or airplane travel options to 'the Islands of Puerto Rico (Vieques and Culebra), the biolouminiscent bay at Fajardo,etc. All these and more can be easily arranged since you will be staying in one of the most important tourists regions of PR.
And if you want some fine dining, there are also many options, since Grand Bay Beach is located adjacent to the caribbean's most recent and luxurious resort: Bahia Beach, host to the new 5 stars St. Regis Hotel, truly an architectural jewel ! Additional nearby resorts include The Rio Mar Wyndham, Coco Beach Resort and El Conquistador, where you can chosse from fine dining, casinos, golf, etc.
But surely the most heartwarming experieces at Grand Bay will remain the most simple; the enjoyment of the soothing breezes, the sounds of the ocean, the strolls along the beach, sun bathing, the birds hovering in the sky, the moonlight reflection on the ocean, the bright stars shining in the night,.......
because here, NATURE takes precedence..!

I have been an architect for 25 years and had the oportunity to work on several tourist oriented projects in PR and have visited most of the existing properties similar to Grand Bay. What I found unique about Grand Bay is the unspoiled character of its setting, the privacy it offers,the layouts and finishes of the apartments, the resort like design of the gazebo and pool areas, and the fact that I can walk to the beach and /or drive to the nearby golf courses. There is not another comparable property in Puerto Rico where you can do that.
Edgardo Perez purchased this apartment in 2009
My wife and I had the dream of investing in an area of extreme natural beauty, adjacent to the beach and golf course. We have always enjoyed the beach and wanted a property like this. The access is so convenient. Recently completed Route 66 expressway takes you directly from the airport to PR187, a beautiful tree canopied roadway which leads to Grand Bay. Also the fact that we are neighbors to the most striking and recent resort in the caribbean(Bahia Beach) made us feel confident of our investment. Now we are sure of our good decision.
Spectacular, we really have enjoyed every minute spent in our beach apartment. We enjoy the privacy, the uniqueness of the natural context, the beautifull beach, the strolls along the shoreline, the nights in our balcony with the ocean breeze and the shinning stars foreshadowing a beautifull tomorrow. Each time we come it feels like a small vacation. The apartment feels extremely cozy, ample and user friendly. If I feel like playing golf, there are five courses to choose from within 25 min drive, afterwards, a swim into the beach makes me feel like the perfect day.
I usually expect a little less than what I see in photos, figuring some wide angle lens and optimal conditions, but this place exceeded my expectations. Well appointed is a very accurate description. Eduardo's condo was clean, comfortable, modern, and contained everything we needed for a great weeks vacation. The kitchen was stocked with beautiful dishes and gourmet cookware. My dreams were answered as I wanted to hear the ocean waves from the bedroom. The place is also within walking distance to first class restaurants and golf and convenient to the rainforest, airport, San Juan, the bio bay tours, the casino and fine restaurants (Palio) at the Windham resort complex. We walked the beach every morning and rarely saw anyone! The water was clear and warmer than our New England summer beaches. The condo pool was very clean. Many many thanks to our hosts!
We loved our week vacation in Puerto Rico and a lot of that is due to this beautiful condo. We have 2 kids, ages 5 and 7, this condo was the perfect setup for us. We could put the kids to bed and sit on the balcony listening to the waves crash. Edgardo and Marga have everything you need in the condo: pots, pans, blender, wine opener, spices, beach toys, beach chairs, and the list goes on. The condo is clean, updated and comfortable. We felt safe and at home. We would go back in a heart beat.
I cannot say enough about this beautiful home that we were honored to stay in. Edgardo and Marga have thought of and provided everything you could possibly need for your home away from home! They were so accommodating and extremely responsive to our needs! Their condo was exceptional in every way, from the decor to the location! We couldn't help but enjoy the beautiful ocean views from the kitchen, the master bedroom, or from the gorgeous balcony. The condo development is in a gated community with guard in a quiet neighborhood. It has direct access to a secluded beach and is a close walk to the St. Regis Hotel. It is close to many activities, such as the bioluminescent tours, Icacos Island for snorkeling, El Yunque Rain Forest, and beautiful Loquillo Beach. There was so much more to do there, but we just ran out of time! I cannot say enough about this place except to say that we definitely want to go back again next year. This place exceeded our expectations! Thank you Edgardo and Marga!
We loved staying at this condo. It was a bit deserted as, at times, I think we were the only ones in the building, but maybe that was because we were there over the holidays. Short walk down the beach to a beautiful resort. Short drive to the rainforest, snorkeling excursions, groceries, and a bakery. The foliage in the back and the wildlife noises were amazing. Our hosts were fabulous and extremely accommodating and responsive. The decor is quite modern and the deck and grill are the icing on the cake. The pictures do not do the place justice.
We stayed at this property for a week and a half in March and couldn't have asked for a better home base for our Puerto Rico vacation. The condo is beautiful, everything is clean and updated and it's quite stylish yet very livable. The photos really don't do it justice. The condo development is very nice, it's a gated community with guard in a quiet neighborhood with direct access to a secluded beach. At our stay in March we got the feeling that most of the units were owner occupied rather than rentals as on many days we had almost the entire complex to ourselves.
Our kids, 10 and 8, loved the unit's utility closet with beach toys, sporting goods, etc. and we all loved the secluded beach. We actually were disappointed on our trips to public beaches in San Juan and Luquillo as we preferred the beach outside the condo.
We loved the location as it's convenient to San Juan, Luquillo and El Yunque. The condo is about ten minutes from a main road with a large grocery store, pharmacy, etc. through a local neighborhood and down a quiet local road surrounded on both sides by cows and horses grazing in pastures. While the area is very safe, you should note that this is the real Puerto Rico complete with farmers, feed stores and crazy drivers. If you're not the adventurous type it might take a bit to get used to the drive from the main road to the condo.
The owners were amazing. The communication before and during our stay was excellent and they provided everything we needed without being the slightest bit intrusive. We loved our trip to Puerto Rico and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else on our next visit. We will and have recommend this property to any friends visiting the island.
This condo exceeded our expectations. It was impeccably clean, well-appointed and picturesque which made for a wonderful vacation. For our family of three it was more than enough space for everyone. As the other reviewers have stated, the condo is stocked with everything you need. I enjoyed sitting on the balcony every morning with my coffee to view and listen to the teal waters. The beach is secluded, serene and well maintained as I saw the groundskeeper rake the sand every morning. We rented a car and got to see more of the "authentic" Puerto Rico. We did an Old San Juan Bay boat tour, Horseback riding on the beach at Rancho Bueno Vista located at the Palmas del Mar Resort in Humacao and visited the La Coca Falls waterfall at the El Yunque National Forest. We had dinner at Don Pepe's located in Rio Grande and it was delightful. We also had dinner TWICE at La Parrilla located at Luquillo Beach Kiosk 2 because the grilled langosta lobster was just that good! We had breakfast at the Coco Sweet Bakery and Lluvia Deli Bar & Artefacto both located in Rio Grande and both were excellent. One tip --GPS is not always spot on in Puerto Rico. It will get you in the general vicinity so keep a look out as you approach your destination. Overall we loved our time in Puerto Rico. Edgardo the condo owner was responsive, accommodating and always available to us which made for a worry free relaxing vacation. We would definitely stay at his condo again and again and again without hesitation.
