Rio Grande Condo Rental Photos and Description

3br / 3ba With One Of The Best Views In Bahia Beach

*** Effective May 1, 2014 a Resort Fee will now be charged to all Rental Guests by Bahia Beach for use of the amenities. All listed and quoted rates now include Resort Fees ***


Welcome to Bahia Beach Resort and Golf Club, the most spectacular resort in Puerto Rico. As soon as you enter our gates you can tell right away this place is different. Situated at the foot of El Yunque (the only rainforest in the U.S. forest system), the lushness of the former coconut plantation immediately hits you and you can clearly see why Bahia Beach has been designated an Audubon International Gold Sanctuary and is one of the most unique properties in the entire Caribbean.

With 2 miles of secluded ocean-front beach and sprawling lakes over its 400-plus acres, Bahia Beach is unique in that it allows you to enjoy both saltwater and freshwater recreational activities. Come to the boathouse (a very short walk from our villa), where you can take a kayak or paddle-board out for a spin and get a unique, up-close look at the beautiful flora and fauna of Puerto Rico.

When you get back to the Boathouse, grab a fishing pole and try your luck at catching a Tarpon, Snook, Jack or one of the many other species of fish in our well stocked lakes (all catch and release of course). Afterwards, you can take a bicycle from the boathouse and explore one of the beautiful and peaceful nature trails on the property. Better yet, take a guided nature tour arranged through The Nature Center, also located at the Boathouse.

Is golf on the agenda? Then you are going to love this place! Forget your clubs? No problem, just head over to the Golf Clubhouse and they will take care of all your golfing needs. Robert Trent Jones outdid himself when he designed his first golf course in Puerto Rico. With El Yunque as a backdrop and a lush coconut tree forest surrounding you, it’s just you, the ball and some of the most beautiful landscape you can imagine. The Back Nine is simply stunning, with holes 17 and 18 wrapping up the day in spectacular ocean-front fashion. After a fantastic round of golf, head over to Molasses (next to the Golf Clubhouse) for a celebratory round of drinks (and eats) and let the friendly staff take care of you while you overlook Bahia Beach and the Atlantic Ocean – a true “19th Hole” experience.

Is tennis more your game? Then head over to our hard-court tennis facility (located next to the Sales Center). We currently have 4 courts (2 lighted) so you can pretty much count on having a court available when you want (reservations are still recommended). Need to work on your game? Take a lesson with our fantastic tennis pro, Carl.

Exhausted yet? Head over to the Spa for some well-deserved pampering and relaxation in one of the massage villas – steam, sauna, and hot and cold plunges round out this amazing experience.

When you are ready for a true fine dining experience, you don’t have to go far. Just make a reservation at world-renowned Chef Jean Georges’s restaurant: Fern. With an eclectic mixture of international and Puerto Rican flavors, Fern is sure to satisfy any palette.


Bahia Beach is perfectly situated to enjoy many of the attractions that Puerto Rico has to offer. Located just 25 minutes east of San Juan, you are only 15 minutes from the El Yunque Rainforest. Just a little further east takes you to the town of Fajardo, where you can take one of the famous Bio-luminescent Bay tours or take a ferry to one of Puerto Rico’s beautiful “little islands”, Vieques and Culebra.

If you are ready for some city life, head west about 25-30 minutes to San Juan where you can enjoy the charms of Old San Juan and top it off with a night on the town at one of San Juan’s many first-class Hotel-Casino establishments in Condado or Isla Verde.


When you are ready to finally relax back “home”, a luxurious 3 bedroom – 3 bathroom villa awaits you. With a panoramic view of our largest lake and hole #8, relax on your balcony as you watch golfers and kayakers alike enjoy nature and the most beautiful resort setting in Puerto Rico. This is truly one of the best views in all of Bahia Beach.

Our villa consists of a Master bedroom with a spacious en-suite bath complete with a king-sized bed. Our guest bedroom has a queen-sized bed and our large Children’s Suite consists of 4 Full-Size beds (2 full-size bunks). A fully equipped kitchen, dining, family, and laundry room along with 2 more full bathrooms complete this spacious villa of around 2,000 sq ft.


But what about the beach? No, we did not forget about the main reason you probably came to the Caribbean in the first place: The Beach.

Bound by the crystal clear Espiritu Santo River to the east and the town of Loiza to the west, 2 miles of soft-sand beach await you to satisfy all your “beachcomber” needs. Take a leisurely stroll along the water’s edge as you look over the blue-green water and come back with your hands full of sea shells and sand dollars.

While on your stroll, you may have noticed small areas of the beach that have been roped off (March – May). These are where the famous leatherback sea-turtles have come to lay their eggs. These are the “stars of the show” here in Bahia. There can easily be 15-20 of these nests in any given season. If you are staying with us between June and August, you may be lucky enough to witness the hatching of these amazing creatures. Our onsite Marine Biologist, Marcela, usually will let us know within a few hours of when these hatchlings will appear. My family has thoroughly enjoyed these “Discovery Channel” moments.

After a day at the beach you can take a dip in or relax by our lovely pool, which sits right in front of our villa.


The new Resort Fees now gives you complete access to all the amenities in Bahia Beach, which include:

1. The new Member Only Pool (pictured above)

2. The new Member Only Gym (pictured above)

3. The Member Only Beach Club (towels, chairs, etc.)

4. The Las Verandas Pool (in front of our villa, pictured above)

5. The Nature Center/Boathouse (includes use of the kayaks, canoes, bikes, fishing poles, etc.)

6. The Tennis Courts

In other resorts, you typically pay a resort fee for your stay plus extra for the amenities you use, like the gym, activities (bikes, kayaks, etc.). Here, you pay the resort fees and it includes all of this....very convenient!

The only thing you do not have access to is the St. Regis pool and beach chairs. These are reserved for hotel guests only. However, hotel guests do not have access to the Bahia Member pools, beach club, gym , etc.

You of course still have access to all Bahia and St. Regis restaurants, as well as the hotel Spa.

**As part of your stay you also have access to our golf cart (4 seater) free of charge.

There is so much more to add to our “property description”, but there is just not enough room. Las Verandas 9277 embodies all things Bahia and we know that you will enjoy coming here time and again. We look forward to welcoming you to a place we are very proud of. “Nos vemos pronto”!

About Tarun Palep

Based in Atlanta, we are a family of 5. I enjoy life with my wife and 3 young daughters and we have had business in Puerto Rico for the last 10+ years. We had always thought about owning a second home on the island, but nothing ever moved us. That is until the first time we set foot onto Bahia Beach. I knew instantly that this place was different. The rest as they say, is history.

Tarun Palep purchased this condo in 2010

Great family vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Three generations loved Bahia. The condo was excellently equipped and comfortable. The property has activities for all - tennis, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, water trampoline, walking the beach .... (Bahia has what appears to be a beautiful golf course, but we don't play golf.) Our host was gracious and attentive.

My husband and our children met friends for a week at Bahia. It was our first time in Puerto Rico and it was so beautiful, so easy, so fun, so clean, so everything that we are completely smitten. The property is luxurious and well-equipped. The pools, boathouse, beaches and nature are unparalled. We took a hike in the El Yunque rainforest (very short drive) that we will always cherish. Tarun, the owner, is equally exceptional. He was so kind, attentive and helpful at every moment from the time we booked until the time we lost the golf cart key (and a new one was waiting for us when we got back from the pool). We would give Tarun and Bahia 100 stars if we could!

What's left to say?

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Bahia and I reread the reviews to see if I could add anything helpful. I think prior reviewers have it spot on. We're family of 5 (kids: 8, 10 and 12) and have traveled a fair amount particularly around the Caribbean. Our visit to Bahia was indeed our most relaxing and overall best family vacation. Just a wonderfully enjoyable time. Enough to do if you want to (Gym, Watersports, bikes, El Yunke, etc.) and less if you want that too! The new pool complex is just fantastic and its proximity to the beach is perfect to mix bodysurfing/sand dollar hunting with hanging in the pool. From the start, Tarun was awesome. He was the consummate host from the time I made my first inquiry on the property. This was our first VRBO experience and I never felt like I was bugging him with questions, etc. His information on the unit, the resort and local activities were spot on. He singlehandedly almost restored my hope for the internet. As others have said, having the optionality of a full, comfortable kitchen for a younger family was both convenient and economical compared to eating out every meal. The resort is beautiful, the unit is also....and the pictures do not do it justice....VERY spacious and comfortable. Staff at the resort were terrific! We were sorry to say goodbye....but have already booked for next year! If you're considering this property, I suggest you book and don't look will not be disappointed.

Best family vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time at Bahia Beach! The other reviews say it all, but the things that really stood out to us (family of 5, two adults, 3 kids) were:

-The condo and resort are beautiful - everything was exceptionally clean and well kept! All of the furnishings and kitchen are so modern, clean and lovely, you will even enjoy cooking if you choose to do so.

-The condo is huge! How many times has your family had 3 bathrooms on a trip? We are considering allowing our kids to each take a friend the next time we visit because we had so much extra sleeping space.

-Staying at the St Regis hotel would be cost prohibitive for us - too much eating out without a kitchen, too crowded to have 5 people in one room, etc. After staying in this condo our we all agree that it is much better than staying in the hotel with all of the benefits of staying at the hotel.

-With the condo you have access to 2 beautiful pools, one just steps from the condo and the other a short golf cart ride away, right in front of the clubhouse for the golf course. The pool at the golf clubhouse is brand new (Oct 2014) and is gorgeous & beachfront.

-We attended the champagne sabering in the hotel lobby twice while we were there, enjoyed the spa, ate at the Fern restaurant and enjoyed happy hour in the lobby. We used the tennis courts and the brand new, beautiful work out facility, rode bikes all over the many trails on the property, went paddle boarding, went on a kayaking tour, enjoyed the inflatable toys in the lake and spent lots of time on the beach. It was, hands down, our best family vacation! And for the times we did not feel like cooking, we enjoyed all of the restaurants on the property as well as wonderful service at the pool and beach. I couldn’t recommend it more – you will not be disappointed!

Five stars goes to Tarun as well to his property on Bahia Beach. From the beginning Tarun communicated to us points of interests, directions, places to eat - every step of the way. In fact (family of 11) got into our vans and started driving and ended up at San Juan. I text Tarun, and he sent me his favorites. He is the BEST. The condo is clean, spacious and absolutely the perfect choice for us. It was wonderful to be met by his property manager, she gave us a tour of the condo and property. Love the pools and jumping waves in the ocean. The resort and golf enchanting. We enjoyed ourselves enormously.

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the villa and Bahia Beach Club! Everything was seamless and the villa was so amazing--especially for our kids! The property has a pool right across the street and they even had toys and things for our young kids to play with. All in all, this was the best vacation we had in a long time!! Tarun was amazing with all his tips and help and just a wonderful person all around nearing our stay was comfortable and great. We are definitely coming back! Highly recommend this place!!
