About The Owner

I am a practicing CPA committed to provide excellent service to my clients. I am a frequent traveler who knows first hand what guests expect from a vacation rental property. That's why I have secured the services of a Property Manager that will be available to answer questions and concerns on a timely manner. Also I understand the importance of keeping confidential all personal and financial information and that is why I only process my booking through the online reservation manager provided by this webpage.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2002

Why The Owner chose Rio Grande

We love and treasure this property and try to stay there whenever is available and circumstances allow. Once you pass the main gate you enter into a special place away from it all. For me is like a piece of paradise.

What makes this villa unique

This one bedroom villa sleeps six people for the price of one hotel room. You have all the benefits of a privately owned villa but within the gated premises of a World class golf and beach resort. You will feel far away in a secluded tropical reserve but yet close enough to urban life and all it benefits. The beauty and calm of this place will definitely recharge your mind and soul.

Great 10 year anniversary

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time to Puerto Rico and we had a great time. The villa is in a great location. Only about 35 minutes from San Juan. You will definitely want to rent a car because there is a lot to explore in this area. The property is lovely. Great pools and beach. Beach chairs are available for lounging out on the beach and plenty of chair and tables by the pool. It is nice having access to the hotel next door for a meal if you don't want to cook or go out. The villa has everything you need. Plenty of space for a couple and having the balconies was awesome. The only thing that could use improvement is that it could use a deep clean and a new coat of paint. Neither of these would keep me from going back though. We will definitely be returning!

Owner's Response: Kendall I am glad you enjoyed the property and your first trip to Puerto Rico. Regarding your observations I will personally visit the property this week to take care of anything that needs to be replaced or improved. We just finished refurbishing the furniture in our continuous efforts to keep the property up to date. In the future feel free to contact the property manager should you find something not in place or should you need assistance. Looking forward to your next visit. Kind regards, Francisco.

Relaxing, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The condo was perfect. We enjoy food so having the kitchen with pots & pans and such allowed us to eat what we wanted when we wanted instead of having to go looking for restaurants every time we were hungry or worry about how late they would be serving breakfast. The property is within the resort and felt very safe and was well cared for. Sitting on the balcony felt like we were already at the beach it was so close. It is a condo on the first floor with a parking garage on the lower level so there is a flight of stairs to go down to the pool area, you then cross the pool area to get onto the beach. This condo is the closest to those stairs so really a great location. I left my fitbit plugged into an outlet by accident and it was mailed back to me within a few days for free. Awesome. We are so glad we did the trip and stayed in this condo. I loved it and highly recommend it.

The beach itself had signs warning of waves breaking on the beach and some spots were a bit rocky so I felt more comfortable swimming with water shoes on. There is no lifeguard. The hotel entrance is a short walk down the beach so the condo area feel quiet and private or you can walk further down if you like a crowd from the hotel.

We saw several large lizards and an iguana on the hotel grass from our view on the balcony. This part of the island has the rain forest and lots of foliage so we really felt it was more adventurous and exotic than if we had stayed in San Juan or other areas of the island although they all have things to offer. We stayed for a week and did two mornings on rain forest hikes, snorkeled out towards Ponce (our side of the island was windy that day but the other side was great), visited the forts in San Juan, kayaked an the evening at the bio-luminescent bay (a highlight of our trip), and spent time on the beach.

Owner's Response: Laura thanks for your detailed review. It will definitely be valuable for future guests. Regarding the rocky spots on the beach, those were probably Sand Dollars. There is a time of year when they come to shore and if you step over them they feel like rocks. But that's only once a year and for a short period of time. As you mentioned the beach generally has small breaking waves but is safe to swim at. Sometimes it is calm and others you could find big waves if there is a storm or a weather disturbance. But generally it has small waves and it is safe to swim at. I am really glad that you enjoyed your stay and your visit to Puerto Rico and hopefully you will visit us again in the near future. Kind regards, Francisco

Superb!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this Villa. It is truly ocean front, I walk barefoot from room to beach. Villa is comfortable; two queen beds, nice living area (never used dining table as we ate on balcony for our meals), kitchen is nicely furnished, there are two pools, a baby pool and whirlpool available for Villa guests. Wyndham Grand Rio Mar facility is a short walk away. We plan on going back again in the future. Thank you for a wonderful 13 day stay in beautiful Puerto Rico.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Francisco's beautiful condo. He and Euniz were very helpful and prompt in returning all emails and texts. The unit is in a great location near the pools and has a wonderful view of the beach. We thought being on the first floor we might not see the water well, but the view is as pictured - the first floor is above ground level, so it feels cozier than a ground floor would be. The infinity pool with the ocean in the background are gorgeous. We had a couple of nice early dinners at the tiki bar at the hotel, which serves until 5, and a beautiful view of the mountains from the restaurant at the golf club. We also had a good meal at the Asian restaurant on the property. The resort road is directly across the street from the entrance to the rain forest and you can see the rain forest mountains from the beach if you walk down the beach just past the tiki bar....it's a beautiful view. The condo is close to the airport, so we saved Old San Juan and the fort (which are not far past the airport) for our last day after check-out, giving us a full day there before flying out. Thank you Francisco for a wonderful stay - we love Puerto Rico and hope to return!

This is a great location for enjoying the beach. The view from the condo is gorgeous!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying here and would do so again. After more than 25 trips to the Caribbean, this place stands out. The condo is clean and well laid out, the beach is beautiful, and you feel like you're ON the beach when you're on the balcony of the condo. It's nice and quiet, yet you have access to the busier hotel next door for eating if you want. We LOVE all the palm trees right on the beach for shade and beauty.
