About Carla Rivera

We are a family of 5 native to Puerto Rico. We are doctors living in San Juan and this is our second home that we use for vacation. When our children were younger we used to go to the beach out every week, but now that they are married and have their own family, we tend to only use it from time to time. We are very friendly and very family orientated and we have kept our villa with all the needs of comfortable-homey living.

Carla Rivera purchased this villa in 2003

Why Carla Rivera chose Rio Grande

This is our beach villa away from home. It is very comfortable and recently decorated with the best of quality to represent our lay back, plantation style. Our villa is located in front of the community pool and playground, so you can walk in your bathing suit! You can play golf, tennis or just relax at the private owner's beach and pool.

What makes this villa unique

We are only 40 minutes to beautiful historic city of San Juan, but not so far that you might miss it. It is near the beach but not on it so you can enjoy the serenity of the mountain views and the private area of the pool and gazebo area with your family. A short ride take you to the Natural Reserve of El Yunque, the only rainforest in the US. There is a lot of local restaurants, shopping malls, fishing trips, ziplines, horsebackriding and many more!

The perfect family getaway spot.

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin! First off, this was such a perfect villa for our family. You are just a few feet away from a great pool, a short 5-minute drive to a beautiful private resident's beach, 15 minutes from the rainforest, plus a nice patio with amazing sunrise views. The villa itself is comfortable with plenty of room, a great kitchen, and comfy beds. The bedrooms were nice and isolated from the main living area, which allowed our toddler to nap peacefully during the day. We weren't super impressed with the Wyndam hotel itself, which was fine by us because we had everything we needed at our villa and the beach. (the provided towels and chairs were a great convenience!)

Carla was a very responsive and helpful host. We had some travel hiccups on the way down and she went FAR above and beyond to make sure we had the keys and access we needed. All during our planning process, she was quick to answer all our questions and accommodated us with a pack'n'play and high chair for our little one.

Can't say enough good things about our stay. Thanks to Carla for sharing your home with us!

Wonderful Trip!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time using VRBO and it was a great experience. The villa was roomy, well maintained and beautiful. There was more than enough room to accommodate the six of us. The entire resort was lovely and quiet. Carla was very responsive to us and made sure all our needs were met. Her suggestions for restaurants were spot on.

A Piece Of The Island's Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My daughters, our guests and I couldn't have asked for lovelier accommodations to stay! The villa is not only roomy and decorated with a lovely hacienda style but Carla was a delightful hostess. She was generous and always attentive to our needs. Although I was born and have traveled many times to Puerto Rico, this location is central to fun, fun and more fun. And yet, at the same time it lends itself to a layed back atmosphere when that is preferred. We will be back ! Thank you Carla for providing this piece of Paraduse Island for our much needed and most welcomed vacation!

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was actually better than advertised. The outdoor patio area was terrific (much larger than I expected). It was a great area to relax in the morning and night.

All of the amenities were great and we loved the location.

I’ve used VRBO / HomeAway multiple times and Carla was possibly the best owner we have ever rented from. She was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions.

Really home away from home !

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, beautifully decorated with attention to detail, safe and well located. Very well managed.

We enjoyed the beach, golf, casino, the luminescent bay, the rain forrest, the Conquistador, the lighthouse, beautiful Old San Juan with the cobblestone streets, El Morro Castle, a variety of restaurants and their exotic menus.

The Wyndham personnel was fantastic, the girls enjoyed the spa and the children their fun pool.

We watched new year eve fireworks from the terrace of this condo with the mountains as the background simply gorgeous. The locals know how to have fun. I would recommend this property to anyone.

Just can't say enough about this villa and the owner! I was a little skeptical because there were no reviews on this particular property but once I connected with the owner, my fears disappeared. Carla was so helpful with all my questions and offered up tips on where to visit and the best times to go to various places. The villa itself was gorgeous. It was extremely clean and decorated beautifully. A fully equiped kitchen was perfect for cooking our family meals. We chose to bring food from home. Frozen meats and homemade sauce, etc. This saved us a ton of money. The restaurants in the complex are pretty pricey. We did venture over to the hotel pool and stayed for a while, until we were told that it was for hotel guests only! lol It was a shame we couldn't hang there because there was music and the tiki bar! (of course they have no qualms about taking your money). The private beach was nice but would be better if they raked the beach to remove some trash that was around & the chaises should be replaced. The pool over at the beach was really nice as was the villa complex's pool. We had an amazing time and would highly recommend this more tip would be to check out the Erin Go Brah for private sailing/snorkelling. Definitely the best day we had!

Nearest Airport
19 Miles
Luis Munoz Marin International airport
Car: necessary

Rio Mar Resort has a huge complex of villas surrounding the Wyndham Hotel Beach Resort and Spa. It is almost 500 acres of lush greens, beach and golf. It is a very tranquil, relaxing and family orientated resort area. A car is a must to travel outside the complex in order to get to pharmacies, shopping malls, food markets and outside restaurants. As well as to get from the villa to the beach (5 min away inside the villa complex). The villa does not have a Golf Cart.

Near Rio Mar, you can get to nice tourist friendly restaurants in the town of Luquillo (15 min away) where you can experience Latin food and delicious tropical drinks. You have access to Walgreens, super markets, movie theater and an outlet center in less than 15-20 min away.
