About The Owner

I came to Puerto Rico from England 14 years ago and fell in love with the island and Sandra-a local lassie. We now have 2 kids. I work for the Ritz-Carlton Reserve. I own 2 other rental properties here on the island and would love to share Puerto Rico with you by sharing our properties.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2005

Why The Owner chose Rio Mar Cluster 2

We purchased the property to enable us access to the beach and members pool club area which are idyllic and quintessential caribbean. We used to live nearby on the hillside so to be able to jog down to the beach and pool area in 10 minutes was a real bonus. Now we live in Luquillo (down the beach!). We love our Rio Mar property and we hope to share it with you!

What makes this villa unique

This property feels upscale because of the tight security on entrance. On entering the resort and in particular Cluster 2 (where the property is located) the mediterranean (award winning) design of the buildings and lay out of the area sets the scene for a relaxing vacation in beautiful surroundings. Guests always comment on how they love the ambience and setting of the Cluster. What then occurs to you is how close the property is to the pool! (steps!). On entering the villa the spectacular view overlooking the golf course lakes and green tropical beauty is a wow and then you see the hotel and realize how close you are to the beach. Open up those windows and let that warm caribbean prevailing breeze pass through the villa and you have arrived!

Beautiful studio!

  • 5 of 5

If you dream of the elegance of a Spanish villa, this is the place for you. You may expect a conquistodor to ride up on his horse at any moment. Yet this is a modern studio with a historic flair. The tile work is beautiful, the casement windows open outward to bring you lots of fresh Caribbean breezes. The view is stunning and the music of the critters at night are soothing. Otherwise, it's quiet as can be. Having the beach nearby and multiple swimming pools can't be beat. The studio is clean, compact, and nicely appointed. Richard is very responsive if you have questions. This was a happy place to stay and enjoy Puerto Rico! We'd love to come back some day!

Our stay was perfect. The view of the golf course and the mountains was amazing. Everything you need for a get away is available. Nice and clean and quiet. It was more than enough space for the two of us. We were able to use the Wyndham hotel amenities which was a plus. I look forward to book this property for a future stay.

Amazing Stay at the Rio Mar

  • 5 of 5

The villa is located in a gated vacation rental community on the Wyndham Rio Mar Resort. The villa has a studio loft where two individuals can sleep (perfect for older/teenage children), a queen sized bed (very comfortable!), pull out couch, small kitchen and eating area. It has two air conditioning units that work great to keep the villa cool. The windows can also be opened to create a wonderful ocean cross breeze through the unit. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans and utensils that you will require. There are plenty of towels (both bathroom and beach) as well as some beach toys that you can use.

As a resident, you have full use of the beach club on the resort. You can walk there (10 minutes) or drive and park in the free parking. The water is beautiful and shallow and the beach is wide, clean and lined with palm trees. There are plenty of beach loungers and a bar on weekends. We took a long walk on the beach and found that you can continue for quite sometime in both directions. There are two pools that you have access to: one right beside the beach and the other right outside the villa doorsteps! Both are well maintained and beautiful. The pools and beach club have very convenient washroom and shower facilities.

Also, you have access to the rest of the Wyndham Rio Mar resort. The main resort has several restaurants, bars and a casino. It was a pleasant 20 minute stroll which was particularly nice at night. There is also paid parking at the resort if you prefer to drive. The resort gave excellent nightly entertainment options on those evenings that we didn't have anything planned.

Perhaps one of the best features of the resort was its location. It is just across the street from the entrance to the El Yunque Rainforest and Palmer (town with delicious coffee and great art for sale). Since the resort is located just off of Highway 3, it is about 30 minutes to Old San Juan, 30 minutes to Fajardo and the ferries and just 10 minutes to Luquillo and the kiosks (great place for a delicious lunch).

Another positive about the villa is how easy it was to communicate with the owner. I had a few questions regarding check in and internet use and the owner was very fast to respond and helpful throughout.

There are a few things to consider if you are thinking of renting the villa, however. There are quite a few steps leading into the villa itself so it may be a consideration if you have mobility issues or are travelling with small children.

We are glad we booked this villa and wanted to share some experiences we had while in PR

Richards directions were great but we used the pin drop he sent more. Check in was easy and guards were very friendly and welcoming. We found the villa easily and it was clean and obvious someone had looked after it because all the towels and sheets were really well turned down and inviting.

While the villa is small it was great for our family of 4. One of our kids slept on the mezzanine upstairs while the other slept on the fold out Sofa bed. My wife and myself were happy on the Queen bed. The view from the property was amazing overlooking to golf course and the lakes. Hotel was a 10 minute walk and we enjoyed dinner there a couple of times. Beach club bar open on the weekends and you get a good local turnout at the pool and beach there on weekends. The villa pool was great right next to us and we loved using that first thing in the morning and early evening after the beach.

Hotel Pool was great. Walk the 5 minutes down the beach from the beach Club to avoid hotel parking fees or park at hotel and get parking ticket stamped from the Casino...good advise Richard!

All in all a great place to stay...we were on a budget and this suit us just right.

Awesome Resort..Better Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from staying in Puerto Rico and had an amazing time. While the resort is great the villa was even better. The value was amazing for what it was. Watch out for Richies cafe the local restaurant...very pricey. You must eat local food. amazing.

Villla was comfortable for our needs and we loved the wooden finishings and the furniture. Amazing view of the golf course from the villa and great natural AC when you opened up the windows. Richard was easy to get in touch with....he works at the Ritz Carlton in Dorado so seemed to be in tune with all the tours and things to do in the area. Great help...Thank you!|

Park at the beach club pool (5 mins awl or 1 minute drive) for free and avoid the hotel parking fees. Hotel was a 5 minute walk from the parking.

Pool next to the villa was a godsend.

All in all an amazing vacation...We already worked out our repeat visitor discount!
