Wonderful beachfront property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property over Christmas 2009. The location is ~45 minute drive from San Juan airport, away from Old city but very close to El Yunque and Luquillo (with beach and kiosks), also not far from Farjardo where one of the biobays and ferry service to Vieques Islands are. The owner Cristian waited for our arrival at the property and showed us around the rooms and various controls (for AC, TV, retractable awning, etc.). The unit is clean and tastefully decorated, with more linens than we could ever use during the entire stay, and the kitchen is equipped with plenty of pots, pans, and utensils. There are many nice touches, including detailed guidelines written by Cristian (containing local grocery, pharmacy, restaurant information and emergency phone number and hospital), many useful booklets about local attractions, toys for young children, fresh flowers, and a huge tropical fruit basket. The unit opens to a large grass section which extends to the beach. The beach is nice and has very few people (no lifeguard) and one could walk to the beach of adjacent Westin Rio Mar resort.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this place. While we booked for 6 days, our stay took another unexpected twist after 4 days, when a water main pipe outside the building ruptured, which led to a decreased water pressure in the unit. Since it was over the holiday period, repair actions were slow. The owner closely monitored the situation and called the condo association and local water company while we were out visiting places. Seeing the issue would take a while to resolve, Cristian graciously offered to place us in the nearby Westin resort and reimbursed the cost including parking and taxes. So we spent the last two days at the resort, which has nice amenities such as pools and restaurants. In short, we felt we had the best of two different types of vacation lodgings, though I do prefer the home feeling of Cristian's condo and the ability to cook a home meal and wash dirty laundry.

Overall, we can't say enough good things about this property and more importantly the owner. I'd lvoe to recommend this place to anyone.

Two side notes, the AC is a bit loud so one would rather sleep with the ceiling fan on. And the second bedroom is quite a bit smaller than the main one, which would make sharing by two families tricky.

Wonderfully Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Rio Grande!

Our breakfasts were so relaxing with a view to the Caribbean Sea which is literally just a few steps away. The place has everything - a dishwasher, washer and dryer and even a Monopoly game so we spent great time with our two teenage boys playing Monopoly in the evening. I had my afternoon reading and nap in the hammock on the house terrace. You can find inexpensive local lunch in the Food Kiosks which are 15 min drive from the condo. They will also fry a deliciously fresh red snapper for you there. In the evening we usually grilled - there's a grill on the terrace and there's a good local restaurant near by. It's easy to get from this place to Rain Forest, Bio Bay and San Juan with its amazing fortresses and beautiful colorful houses.

Our whole family loved the time we spent in Puerto Rico. Thank you, Christian for organizing it all so well!

Very nice stay

  • 4 of 5

Condo was comfortable, well equipt and just steps away from a beautiful beach. The grounds are well manicured and security personnel make regular rounds. While on the island, we frequented the beach, local restaurants, vendor stands, grociery stores, Yunque forest trails,...and never saw anybody or any activity that was of concern. I would not hesitate to repeat this stay in the future.

The property description was very accurate, just steps away from the beach. The property was clean and well-maintained, just a few details already discussed with owner. Excellent customer service.

Definitely recommend this property to my friends and relatives. Be back soon!!
