About Beatrice Cautino

I am an attorney and CPA. I own various properties in Puerto Rico that I rent in a short term basis. Below you will find a list of all the properties.

It makes my day when I get thank you notes from guests commenting the great experience they had in my properties. Each of my properties is in a unique location, very carefully picked with the heart, not with the pocket in mind. These are properties I love and stay at on at a regular basis.

Beatrice Cautino purchased this villa in 2005

Why Beatrice Cautino chose Rio Grande

I purchase this property because I fell in love with it the second I opened the door. I went to see the villa because of its excellent location, not only beachfront, but inside the premises of a great resort, with great activities for everyone in the family; but once the villa entrance door opened, I felt we were right on the beach. The view from the villa is amazing. You not only see the beach, you see the grains of sand, feel the sea breeze and hear the surf. The villa is not in the top of a building, it is on the beach, only 10 feet above it. The experience is amazing. I can be hours at a time reading in my private balcony, with a cup of coffee or drink and love the feeling of being surrounded by beautiful gardens and the sea. Breakfast, lunch and dinners at the balcony are priceless. You are really dining on the beach with all the comforts of a home. The pictures do not do justice to the closeness of the beach.

I choose our villa in particular vs. other units in the building, because of this unique feeling that you are on the beach. The building gardens are surreal; you are in the middle of a forest with waves crashing just in front of you. I also choose our unit vs. others in the building because it is under the palm trees, and therefore it is one of the very few units with complete unobstructed views of the ocean. I don't have to worry about whether the palm trees have been trimmed or not, I always have perfect views!

Also, I choose this unit because it was the largest 1 bedroom model in the building (only 1 per floor of this size). It is very, very spacious as it has 1,100 sq. ft. and our living room is far larger than the living room of all the 2 bedroom models. You won't feel crowded here at all. I waited a long time for the right unit in this building to become available for sale and when it did we did not think about it twice. It did have a higher cost that others, but it was well worth it.

What makes this villa unique

Be sure to read all the 88+ feedback comments we have in our guestbook. We not only love our villa, all our guests do. Many say it is the best place that they have ever stayed in their lives.

PS. I receive calls very often of guests that are desperately looking for a place to stay, because they rent a beachfront villa and the owner fails to mention that the palm trees have grown and the villa no longer has an ocean view, so beware of pictures of oddly trimmed palms trees, they only look that way once a year. All this is far too common for me and I get very frustrated. If you are looking for a larger size villa or if our villa is not available for rent, or not what you are looking for, email me I will be glad to provide referrals of whom to contact to rent a villa in top shape and great views like ours.

Great spot on the beach!

  • 4 of 5

Great proximity to the beach, clean spacious pools, and views. Parking was close and easy, property felt very safe, and was quiet. Room amenities were adequate with a few surprises like a washer and dryer and boogie boards for the kids. People on the property were friendly. We really enjoyed the proximity to Luquillo Beach, El Yunque, and plenty of restaurants.

Gorgeous, spacious apartment inside. View was breathtaking. Quiet, safe, and peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well equipped. The apartment was decorated beautifully. We felt safe and athe home. The view from the balcony was absolutely perfect! The pools were refreshing and relaxing. Very few people at the villas, which made our stay very romantic. There were days where we were the only ones at the beach for a few hours. Nice chairs to use on the beach free. A little ways down the beach is the hotel where you can get drinks and food. (A little pricey...but very good). Would recommend having a car to get around to nearby restaurants. ..lots of good places to eat in the area. Beatrice has a great parking spot that is assigned and very close. The room is really close to the pool stairs. I would suggest bringing dvds to watch, as she has dvd players in the room and living area. Make sure to bring bottled/canned drinks...no vending machines on this property. Closest is at the hotel. I cannot say enough about this place. It was absolutely the best!!

We loved our visit to Puerto Rico and our stay at Rio Mar Beachfront Villas.

  • 5 of 5

Our villa was lovely and the view was spectacular! The grounds and pool areas were extremely well maintained. The very close proximity to the beach, the accessibility to the Wyndham hotel and its restaurants, the in-unit amenities including washer/dryer, the beautiful landscaping, (and I could go on and on) all contributed to a wonderful vacation! Our condo owner, Beatrice Cautino, was very organized and ready to answer any questions we had both before and during our stay! Our family of 18 rented 4 different condos in the same building and every family member spent the week relaxing and raving about this lovely vacation spot!

Perfect location, great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. It was our favorite part of the vacation - the apartment is steps from several beautiful swimming pools and from the beach. It is a 10min drive to El Yunque (the rainforest). The resort is lovely, clean and safe. The apartment is beautiful - very nicely decorated and very practical. The owner was very responsive and even helped us plan parts of our vacation. She also recommended places to eat in the area that were great. We will most likely be back and I've already recommended it to several of my friends.

Ideal location for exploring Puerto Rico, and great beach experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this property. Our daughter got a lot of use out of the resort pool with water slide, and it was nice to have the infinity pool with hot tub so close by!

Be sure to walk down the beach (to the left facing water) when the tide goes out, and look for sand dollars. And the other direction where the warm river water flows into the sea was also fun to experience (with palm-tree swing!)

Activities we enjoyed included horseback rides and go-karts at Hacienda Carabali; hike to La Mina falls (though crowded) in El Yunque; trips to the Luquillo kioskos (#20 was great!); the East Wind catamaran sail/snorkel trip to Icacos; and a day in Old San Juan.

We found Beatrice's suggestions in her guide very reliable and helpful, and used them throughout our stay, both for activities, shopping and restaurants. Just keep in mind you will need to bring or buy pretty much any supplies you need for the kitchen, including garbage bags, paper towels, etc.

Highly recommended especially for families with younger kids! You can do a lot with very short car drives from this location.

This condo was perfect for us! We loved it.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for us because it is right on the beach and also very close to the rainforest, zip line tours, and many more exciting activities. We would recommend this condo to anyone going to Puerto rice.
