STEPS FROM THE BEACH, ELEGANTLY APPOINTED PROPERTY

Rio Grande Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

One of a kind beachfront apartment, located in a modern, recently completed 52 unit boutique complex. This property offers a peacefull, private experience, with miles of secluded and exquisite shorelines and golf course just steps away from your door and 30 mins from airport.

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.

Bedrooms facilities are fully air conditioned and include: master suite with king bed, a cozy chaise lounge, flat screen tv with dvd player and views to the ocean, a den adjacent to the master room with a convertible double twin bed, full private master bathroom with whirpool, separate shower cabin and double sinks. Second bedroom with two twin beds and full private bathroom. Laundry facilities are provided at this level.

Living areas are also air conditioned and include fully equiped european kitchen with granite tops and space for 4 stools, dining area with table for 6. A white leather chaise lounge and sofa awaits to comfort yourself in the ample living room which opens to the balcony and offers spectacular ocean views. Equiped with 46' flat screen tv and Bose stereo system with cd, dvd player,(ipod ready). The balcony is expansive, seats 4 to 6 persons in lounge chairs and is equiped with Weber gas grill.

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.

Amazing condo on a secluded beach

  • 5 of 5
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.

Top Notch Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5
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.

Awesome Vacation Rental in Puerto Rico!

  • 5 of 5
After the first email contact with Edgardo via VRBO, I knew this was going to be a wonderful vacation! Edgardo answered numerous questions and provided tons of helpful information to make this stress free vacation planning. Edgardo met us at the condo upon arrival in Puerto Rico and explained everything and made us feel right at home. The views from the living room and balcony are amazing, and having the rainforest adjacent to the beach was another wonderful amenity. My kids loved the pool and beach area as well as taking strolls in the "jungle". The coqui sounds at night from the adjacent rain forest made this such a peaceful and tranquil vacation paradise. The location in Rio Grande is convenient to everything (15 mins to El Yunque, 30 mins to San Juan, 30 minutes to Fajardo, etc.) We visited Old San Juan, snorkeled in Culebra, zip-lined in El Yunque, swam in La Mina Falls, visited the bio-bay in Fajardo, and relaxed all in a week!

I can't thank Edgardo and Marga enough for sharing their condo in Puerto Rico, it was a wonderful vacation and a place we would definitely return to some day.

Perfect Place for our Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This is a perfect place to stay in Puerto Rico. We loved the condo. It was spacious, clean, beautifully decorated, and fully stocked. It worked very well for our family of 5. The extra bedroom located off of the master was a great room for our 14 year old son. It was great to have a pool and the beach so easily accessible, although we often simply enjoyed reading on the balcony and enjoying the view.
The condo's convenient location made it easy to enjoy other activities like a biobay boat tour, the rainforest, Old San Juan and Candado, and the food kiosks in Luquillo.
In addition to all of that, Edgardo was a pleasure to work with. He was responsive and very helpful as we planned our vacation. The directions he provided to find the condo we spot on!
We would definitely return to Puerto Rico and stay in Edgardo's condo again. It was a perfect vacation. We were sad to leave. Thanks for sharing your home with us Edgardo.
