Beatrice Cautino purchased this villa in 2005

Why Beatrice Cautino chose Rio Grande

I purchase this property because I fell in love the second we 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. We 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.

Perfect summer retreat!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfectly located villa. What beauty and close to all kinds of activities. The owner sends out all kinds of information once you confirm your dates and her suggestions are spot on. I usually do all the research for the best restaurants, activities, etc. but she shared her favorites with us which was very helpful. She was also easy to contact if you had any questions about the villa. I highly recommend this villa.

Awesome Place and Awesome Owner

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently rented this condo. What a wonderful place to call home for a week. The complex is a very quiet place. If you are looking for more pool activity or a bar, go to the Wyndham hotel next door. This unit is spacious and you couldn't ask for a better view from the balcony. We were in PR for a family wedding. Our family who stayed at the Wyndham hotel next door and the St Regis were very jealous of our place. The pools here were never crowded. Most of the time we had the pool all to ourselves ( well with the iguanas). The pools were immaculately clean and clear. Beatrice, the very responsive owner sent us a 37 page document prior to our visit. It included everything such as directions from the airport, to all the grocery stores near the condo and even recommended restaurants in the area! Everything you would want to know about PR was in it. We referred to this document as our "bible" and we never left the condo without it since we are Verizon customers who had no cell service in Puerto Rico. Don't let Verizon tell you that you will have service; you won't.

I recommend renting a car as this condo is about 30 minutes from the San Juan airport. It's back off the main road and gated. We felt very secure here.

There are other units in this complex that are available through VRBO however, I would recommend renting this one through Beatrice.

Fabulous beachfront condo to call home for 6 days

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (kids age 6 and 8) stayed in this condo for 6 nights of our vacation in Puerto Rico. The location was fabulous and the condo was very well equipped. The views from the living room and bedroom were amazing. The access to the beach was great. The pools for the ocean villas were 5 star resort quality and there were times we were the only ones in the pool- it was like a private resort pool.

Peaceful scenic stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this lovely beachfront villa for two nights. The property is really well kept and has amazing scenic views! I had a blast with my canon. The condo is well maintained and Beautrice is really good to work with. We would definitely consider returning here again in the future. One of my fave things about the stay was that we practically had the place to ourselves. This private section of the property is quite and is perfect for anyone that prefers less crowds. The beachfront access is a big plus as well!
