About Kermit Richiez
My name is Kermit. I am a physician living in San Juan. My wife Sandra and I bought this property several years ago. We spent beautiful vacations here. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Now we are ready to share this piece of paradise with other travelers.
Kermit Richiez purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Kermit Richiez chose Rio Grande
It is quiet, safe, beautiful, and in a prime location. The beach is great! The water is warm all year round. San Juan Metro area is only 40 minutes from here. Our property is very well kept. This is a gated community with 24 hours security and access control.
What makes this Condo unique
Our favorite places in this condo are the 2 balconies overlooking the ocean. We have a hammock in the master bedroom balcony perfect for an afternoon nap while listening to sounds of the ocean.

Beautiful! Perfect for family of 6
Our family of six (4 daughters age 8-18) from Colorado stayed in this condo for a week in June 2017. We LOVED it and would definitely go back! We were looking for a destination where we could relax & play on the beach and where there were lots of other things to do as well. Puerto Rico was the perfect place and this condo was exactly what we were looking for. All my communications from Kermit were timely and he made every effort to answer all my questions and accommodate our needs both before and during our stay.
The condo was clean and spacious with great air conditioning in all bedrooms and living spaces. Exactly as pictured. It is at the beach end of the condo complex so as close to the beach as you can get. Super easy to walk to and from condo and beach as needed. Palm trees on the beach provided perfect shade steps from the water. The surf on the beach was enough for boogie boarding but fairly calm such that I was comfortable with my 8 year old in the water. Kermit provided all the beach chairs / accessories toys we needed in great condition. Very quiet this time of year - some days we had the beach to ourselves!
The kitchen is small but had everything we needed and was great for simple meal prep. We had fun with the espresso machine. :)
The location was central for us. We spent one day in the rain forest - very convenient and easy to get to. We went snorkeling, night kayaking in the bio-luminescent bay and explored historic Old San Juan. Never had to drive more than an hour.
A couple of hints:
Access to the complex was a bit tricky the first time because I misunderstood Kermit's instructions a bit - when you arrive at the gate, you have to get an automatic gate opener from the gate attendant by giving your name and condo #.
I had trouble one day with the keypad lock on the condo door - (Kermit was immediately available via text to assist me and solved the problem within a few minutes). I later discovered that I just had to hold the door shut a bit tighter when unlocking to allow the deadbolt to properly disengage.
Access to the beach is through a locked gate requiring a key. The trick is that they only work from the condo side of the gate (not the beach side) so you have to reach through and unlock from that side when returning from the beach. :)
The top beds in the smaller bedrooms are a bit firm (futon-like). Fine for smaller kids but my older girls took turns between the lower bed & couch.
Thank you Kermit!
Dear Jeannine, thank you for this beautiful review. I'm glad you and your family had a great vacation and enjoy your stay at our property. I took note of all your recommendations. First, I will review driving directions to make sure future guests have no problem arriving at the condo. I will also provide them with a drop pin to facilitate directions. In the past we use to greet guests at the airport and give them the gate opener, but now we leave it at the condo. Upon arrival guests have to identify themselves at security to gain access the first day. From there on, they can use the gate opener. Second, the door lock malfunction is solved by pulling the door towards you while entering the code. I'll make sure this is in the access instructions. However, we always provide 2 sets of keys that guests can use instead of the keypad in the door lock. Third, the keys to access the beach is supposed to work both from inside and outside. I'll make sure that the keys provided work both ways. Fourth, regarding the beds, we will review that and most likely will change the mattresses in the near future.
I certainly appreciate your feedback and recommendations. We will take care of everything.
Thank very much and please come back.
A piece of heaven!
This is our first time using a VRBO rental and it did not disappoint! Kermit greeted us at the condo and gave us a tour. He really did think of everything one would need for a vacation stay the condo was well equipped with a full kitchen, washer & dryer. You have beach chairs, boogie boards and umbrellas. The condo was perfect for my family of 8 (including my mom and sister) it was spacious and everyone slept comfortably. I highly recommend this piece of paradise for anyone looking to get away from the craziness. Location is perfect. Walking distance to the beach was amazing! My whole family fell in love with this place. It was relaxing and peaceful we really did not want to leave! Thank you Kermit for allowing us such an amazing experience and thank you for making yourself available. Looking forward to future stays!
Sandra Torres and Family!
Amazing, quiet, peaceful!
We spent 5 here. The pictures do not do it justice. It was a beautiful condo, with a great view of the beach from both balconies. The hammock on the master suite balcony was very relaxing. Everything we needed was there. Beach chairs, umbrella, towels, boogie boards for the kids. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything needed to feed my family of 6. Internet, tv, for down time. The owner thought of everything. The grocery store was a few minutes away. The owner was extremely helpful with recommendations. We would definitely recommend this place and we will be back.
Great condo right on the beach
Lovely condo in gated community on a gorgeous beach. Owner very responsive in answering any questions that we had. Only complaint was that we had to go home after only a week!
Comfortable, beautiful and peaceful!
This is a wonderful place to stay. It's right in between San Juan and Fajardo so it's very conveniently located. The house is right on the water and we were able to see the beautiful sunrise right from our room. It had everything we needed. We especially appreciated the cooler and beach towels. Thank you, Kermit for providing such a nice place for us to relax and to visit Puerto Rico!
Perfect beachfront apartment. Great beach, swimming pool and quiet. Perfect for families looking to get away.
Thank you! It was a pleasure to have. And thank you for taking good care of my property. Please come back soon!!
