About The Owner

I am a practicing CPA committed to provide excellent service to my clients. I am a frequent traveler who knows first hand what guests expect from a vacation rental property. That's why I have secured the services of a Property Manager that will be available to answer questions and concerns on a timely manner. Also I understand the importance of keeping confidential all personal and financial information and that is why I only process my booking through the online reservation manager provided by this webpage.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2002

Why The Owner chose Rio Grande

We love and treasure this property and try to stay there whenever is available and circumstances allow. Once you pass the main gate you enter into a special place away from it all. For me is like a piece of paradise.

What makes this villa unique

This one bedroom villa sleeps six people for the price of one hotel room. You have all the benefits of a privately owned villa but within the gated premises of a World class golf and beach resort. You will feel far away in a secluded tropical reserve but yet close enough to urban life and all it benefits. The beauty and calm of this place will definitely recharge your mind and soul.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this one bedroom condo for the first week of March. It was perfect for what we were looking for. The condo is located right off the pool area for the Ocean Villas, and it's a very quick walk past the pools to the beautiful beach. The balconies overlooked both and we ate breakfast every morning watching the waves.

The condo was not overly luxurious, but had everything we needed for our stay. Beds were comfortable and there was extra space in the bedroom for our pack and play. The couches in the living room weren't terribly comfortable but fine. Kitchen was basic, but again, served us well.

a few minor negatives: check in was a little confusing- the property manager was already there but I didn't realize this. If I had just emailed her directly ahead of time this would have been clarified. I thought I would get more check in info before we arrived, but again, could have emailed myself. And the condo was lacking some basic cleaning supplies, like extra paper towels and all purpose cleaner, and extra garbage bags. Not a big deal but would be nice.

The location cannot be beat. It is right on the ocean and the pools for the ocean villas are great and were very quiet while we were there. The biggest pool has an accessible walk in entrance, perfect for toddlers! The hotel and its restaurants are a quick walk along the beach away. There are a few grocery stores within a 15-20 minute drive as well as more restaurants. I would recommend a rental car if you are staying more than a few days.

Overall we were very pleased and would stay here again if we go to Puerto Rico again.

We had a really wonderful time staying at this condo. For us, it was a really perfect setup for a couples vacation. Obviously its all about expectations so here are my summary thoughts:

1) The condo itself is perfectly nice. Its not a luxury condo with high end finishings, its a nice place, well decorated with ample space and two balconies. Its on the first floor but elevated enough so you have a nice view. It is directly across the hall from the stairs, close to the ice machine one floor down and you can be on the beach in the ocean in 60 seconds. For a young family it could not be a better setup. There are two pools, a hot tub, and a kiddie pool. you have a view of all 4 right from the balcony. Again, ideal for a young family. The only slightly negative thing i would say about the property as a whole is its starting to show its age. you're 30 yards from the ocean so yes, things rust. The maintenance team was clearly working hard but its not a new construction. I mention only this for expectation setting. Again the unit itself is nice and the building itself is still just fine, only aging a little. The larger resort is a total golf haven. Beautiful place, the hotel next door is decent but we never felt a draw to spend time there, which you could if you like to gamble and get rowdy. The condo development is quiet and peaceful, that's what we wanted and this place delivered.

2) The owner and Eunize were really great. They could not have been more accommodating. I like to think we were pretty low maintenance but they were on point the entire time and answered every question we had within an hour.

3) Regarding the area, its pretty great. The resort property itself is a golf paradise. If you're into that you may never leave the resort. Its a very easy drive from San Juan and also from several other minor urban centers. It's right across the street from the entrance to a beautiful national forest and plenty of other attractions. no complaints.

4) Parting thoughts. If you are a vacationing couple, rent the jeep, spend the money. Take off the top and drive around the rain forest. There are plenty of places to eat within a 15 minute drive so if you don't want to cook it's not necessary. This condo is a spot for families, couples, and retired persons. I would not recommend this place if you are a bunch of bro's looking for a place to get wild and be obnoxious.

Finally, as others have stated, finding the condo was the

Owner's Response: Thanks anonymous for sharing your point of view for the benefit of future guests. Great to hear that you were able to avoid the winter storm and that your travel plans were not affected. Euniz and I are very conscious and strict about maintaining the highest standards and that is why we are constantly replacing the furniture, equipment and supplies and keeping the property up to date. We are really glad that you liked the property and enjoyed your vacation in warm and sunny Puerto Rico. Hope to have you back in the near future. Kind regards, Francisco.

Beautiful location, amazing views, beach, and pool. Perfect for our big family.

We stayed for 8 days in February the unit was perfectly located steps from the pool, hot tub and beach. This was ideal because with 5 kids we needed a place that we felt safe for them to roam and run out to the pool or beach while we kept an eye on them from the veranda. Francisco and property manager Euniz were very responsive to our every need. The beach is beautiful and the pool area was very clean and nice. All around perfect!

We stayed a week and loved it! The villa was very nice and had lots of extras. I enjoyed coffee on the balconies every morning while our little one slept in. Th beach is a really fine sand, and does get all over everything. Our little guy wasn't a big fan! There are chairs available on the beach, and a couple of beach chairs in the villa. The villa also has toys for the kids to take to the pool or beach, including an infant float. We spent most of our time by the kiddie pool. During out stay the villas were not busy, so at times we had the pool to ourselves much of the day. For the parents who think you may want to dump your kids off at the hotel kids camp, check to see if it exits. We stayed in Jan. '15 and it had been demolished. Not sure if they are going to reopen it. The restaurants in the hotel were good. The outdoors restaurants close at 6 pm which is disappointing, so plan accordingly. Some of the restaurants were closed on Sunday or Monday. There is a kiosk (indoor/outdoor strip mall) down the road towards Luquillo which have some wonderful little restaurants and bars. Back towards Rio Grande, there are all your big box stores and fast food restaurants. Other than the rainforest, most of your tour sites are 30 mins. away (or more during rush hours), also check times as they are often closed. The only negatives was that villa management charges for a crib/pack-n-play, and the parking spot isn't clearly marked. Two pretty minor issues ! Enjoy your vacation. I wish I was there as we currently have 10" of snow.

Owner's Response: Tonya thanks for your detailed review of the villa, its amenities and the surroundings. I am really glad that you had and great time and enjoyed the property. Regarding the parking number I will request from management that it be re painted again. For the benefit of future guests, the assigned parking space is number 35 and it is the first parking to the right of the gate, under the tree. It is big enough to fit two small cars, one behind the other. The other two parking spaces next to my parking space are for visitors and can also be used. Thanks again for your comments and hope to have you back in the near future. Kind regards, Francisco

We had a beautiful time at this place celebrating our 25th anniversary. The condo was just great with everything we needed to be comfortable. We loved our morning coffee and evening glass of wine on the balcony. We utilized the pools daily, visited the beach daily. The beds were so comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked, the bathroom was spacious with plenty of good towels provided, hair dryer under the sink. Beach chairs were provided for our use, there was a convenient code for the door so we didn't have to take the key everywhere, and the list goes on. We found the surrounding area fun, but of course, travelers do need a car to stay here. We sought out some local restaurants (Don Pepe, very nice service and good food), and Terruno, one of the highly rated Kiosks, also fun and delicious, great sangria!). We did two snorkeling trips out of Fajardo (so easily accessible from the unit and incredibly worth the money). The property manager, Euniz, was very kind and helpful, meeting us at the unit to show us the works. We had a great and convenient parking spot, and well, we just had an amazing time. Would like to return to this place! God willing!

Great property but we had bad luck

  • 5 of 5

The property was great! It was big, clean and right on the beach. Unfortunately, a bad storm came in and knocked out the power for my first two days. The owner immediately offered a refund and we booked the hotel on this property.

The hotel was clean and nice also, but, with two young kids we regretted leaving this property. We preffered the space and comfort that the hotel could not provide.

I would rent this property on my next visit knowing it is a great property and the owner will accommodate and issues.

Owner's Response: Thanks Geoff for understanding. The storm and the power outage were unfortunately out of my control. The good news is that we found a solution and moved you to the hotel as soon as we found out the problem could not be solved within a reasonable time. I apologize for the inconvenience and really hope that you and your family had a great time in Puerto Rico. It was a pleasant experience working this out with you and I look forward to have you at the Ocean Villas in the near future. Kind regards, Francisco.
