About Kathleen Bertino

We are from Chicago and first discovered Rio Mar when we stayed at a neighbor's villa. It was one of our best family vacations ever, and we fell in love with Puerto Rico. There was no question we wanted to buy property and share the experience we had with our friends and family.

Kathleen Bertino purchased this villa in 2006

Why Kathleen Bertino chose Rio Grande

I bought the villa because I love being a part of a gated resort property and having access to all of the hotel restaurants and other amenities it has to offer (such as getting served a cold rum runner on the beach, golf, spa service, tennis, etc.). My villa is tastefully decorated and is in one of the nicest 'clusters' on the property. It was professionally decorated and is as nice if not nicer than a suite at a high end hotel.

What makes this villa unique

Everything is very convenient at Rio Mar and we are close to the rain forest, Catamaran excursions, bio bay and other 5 start resorts. Old San Juan is about a 45 minute drive.

Fun Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four just returned from a wonderful visit at this villa. It was a perfect rental from start to finish. The owners were quick to respond to inquiries and everything was just as promised when we arrived. We have done many rent by owners - but this villa literally has everything you will need! Everything is top of the line from the granite & stainless kitchen to the roomy master suite. It is nicer than the pictures. The full size grill was a great extra bonus too! The guest handbook in the villa answers any questions you may have after you arrive.

We used both the villa and resort pools and my kids loved them both. The beach was terrific - perfect for boogie boarding and palapas for shade if you walked a little past the resort entrance to the beach. The one thing to note is that the resort charges ALOT for parking - so we parked by the rio mar beach club and walked up the beach. It was a few minutes out of the way, but saved lots of money. Our visit was off season - so I am not sure if you can do this all the time.

The location of the Villa is great - 20 mins to Fajardo, less than an hour from Old San Juan and across from the rainforest. You feel like you truly get away from it all - but are still close to a great deal of sightseeing and activities. There are alot of dining choices at the resort, but if you venture out towards Fajardo there are alot more and are pretty reasonable.

Overall, it was a great time and we hope to come back and visit again one day!

Love this villa

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa! Beautifully decorated, well maintained, great location with a short walk to tennis courts, golf clubhouse, hotel/beach and villa pool. Puerto Rico is a wonderful island to visit with many things to do that are either free or relatively inexpensive. No passport needed, short flight from most major cities, and great weather with low humidity year round. Can't wait to get back!

Beautiful views, loved every minute!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you step out onto the balcony and gaze at the mountains, your vacation has begun. They layout is very pleasing with three full bedrooms and also a pullout couch. They decor is gorgeous and the kitchen is lovely, modern, immaculate and supplied with everything you need and quite a few perks. There are so many thoughtful touches like beach towels and a cooler and even pool floats that add a little extra enjoyment to your time in Puerto Rico. The grounds of the Rio Mar property are well manicured and lit and lovely. There is a villa pool very close but the villa also entitles you to use of all the Rio Mar facilities including the large pool with music and entertainment. It is a bit of a walk but you can park in the tennis club or follow any of the suggestions in the guidebook supplied by the owner. The guidebook is quite thorough and answers questions you didn't even think about. This saved us money and time and the restaurant suggestions were great. Loved every minute of this vacation!

Beautiful Villa with gorgeous golf course views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in an immaculate, beautifully decorated and updated villa on The Rio Mar property. It was our first trip to Puerto Rico and we felt incredibly safe and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. The purpose of our trip was to see our daughter play in a collegiate golf tournament. They played the River Course which is located adjacent to the villa. The club house is literally across the street from the guard shack entrance to the villas. We had a vehicle but it is within walking distance. We rented last minute and Kathleen was so incredibly accommodating and so easy to work with. She is very professional and responds promptly to your every need. Her property manager is also very professional and helpful. We will definitely stay at this beautiful property should our travels take us to Puerto Rico again. We recommend renting this villa and assure you that you will not be disappointed!

Gorgeous Villa Views of Golf Course & Rain Forest

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa on property that allows for flexibility for either a 'girls getaway' or 'family' fun. Beautifully appointed and well maintained with updates galore - including wifi and new appliances. January 2016 was my 5th stay at the Villa and I continue to be impressed with the ease and convenience the property owner delivers. Since the owner is well versed on the island, her guide book delivers many great suggestions, to-do's and what not to'do's!! I learned on my 2nd visit to the rain forest (literally across the street) that folks were paying $60 per head from the hotels to visit. Your car and her guidebook costs you ZERO.

East Winds Catamaran Trip to Culebra is a must. The nearby restaurants quoted are highly recommended...including Lolita's for very inexpensive, yet delicious and abundant dining.

The resort offers pools, beach access and pool side dining. It gives you the opportunity to "stay" at the resort without having to pay resort fees. The Villa is well equipped with simple condiments and toiletries and a quick stop at the local market allows for you to dine in simply or even cook a gourmet meal on the brand new Weber grill!! It gives you the best of both worlds - oh and by the way, it includes accomodations for little service and even a high chair. The kids are grown now, but the owner pays attention to the little things......

I would highly recommend this Villa to friends/family and colleagues. It is clean, comfortable and 'easy'.....makes you feel very relaxed. It is secure and safe in a gated area of the property. Another plus......

Peaceful and definitely worth a stop. We will be back......
