Beatrice purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Beatrice chose Río Grande
I purchase this property because I fell in love with it the second I 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. I 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.

Loved our experience at this amazing destination! Great villa for our honeymoon
My wife and I loved staying at this villa for our honeymoon. Very spacious, clean and the pool/beach view was amazing! Private pool access with very few people was very relaxing. Short walk to the resort was nice but enjoyed our privacy. Lots of cool places near by for eating and day trips. We are definitely coming back!!!
Very happy with the location, the beach the pools and great views. I could have definitely stayed longer!
Great location and a helpful property manager Beatrice
I had an excellent stay right on the beach. The best part is waking up and looking out to the beautiful waves. Rio Grande is also a great location as its between San Juan and Fajardo while being next to El Yunque. Beatrice, the property manager, is great and replies promptly to text messages whenever there are any issues. The washer and drier in the apartment were not working well, but she plans to get those fixed. Meanwhile, she assisted in using the ones in the laundry room nearby. I loved my stay in the ocean villa due to its proximity to the beach and found Beatrice's informative emails and restaurant recommendations very helpful.
Hello Aatif, I an so glad you loved my stay at the ocean villa. As for the washer and drier in the villa, I am happy to inform that the part needed to serviced them was received and they are now working correctly. Hope to host you again soon. Regards, Beatrice
First Time at a VRBO Great Experience
Beatrice was committed not only to providing a great place to stay but also setting us up for a great trip in general. Her communication was incredible. She provided a helpful document giving food and excursion ideas that were on point. The Villa was perfect for our family, located directly on the beach with easy access to the rainforest. We also found the Villa to be larger than anticipated.
Beatrice communicated quickly and accurately. Ocean Villas are lovely and Rio Mar is beautiful. Highly recommend!
