About Arleen

Financial Industry executive realizing a life long dream of owning a slice of heaven on the beach. I spent many years looking for the right place to unwind from a fast paced life. My 'must have' list included a location convenient to a major international airport and easily accessible by highway and roadway. New construction, modern spacious layout and 24 hour security in a gated community were a must. Professionally landscaped and maintained grounds rounded my list. I found all that I was looking for plus the utmost in tranquility and comfort at Grand Bay Beach.

Arleen purchased this condo in 2012

Why Arleen chose Rio Grande

I always wanted a beachfront property. I dreamt of lazy days on the beach reading books and evening walks along the coastline. I searched both coasts of the United States and other Caribbean islands until I came across Grand Bay Beach. Finding such a fantastic location on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico was an amazing dream come true. When this property came on the market, the fact that it was a modern complex in a gated community, only steps from the beach with a golf course across the street and the spectacular Bahia Beach resort next door, I knew I'd found the perfect place.

What makes this condo unique

Modern, convenient, secluded and private. The apartment is ample, yet cozy and inviting. The beachfront is beautiful with miles of shoreline to explore. The tranquil sounds of the ocean waves crashing on the beach and the sea breeze are intoxicating. The proximity to world famous attractions, water sports and local cuisine make this location ideal for families or friends in search of a break from real life.

Grand bay beach condos

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many different places in condos and this was by far the best overall experience we have had. You are in a gated complex and greeted warmly by George who takes careful time to show you everything you need and advises on local food and restaurants, etc. He was available throughout the whole time to help when needed which is great customer service given you are on an island. The beach was very close and the water was warm,silky with salt and waves for boogie boarding and body surfing. Our grandchildren and we had a blast! We took 3 mile walks along the beach everyday. The condo was equipped with everything you need and efficiently designed. I loved the large air conditioner in each room so the temperature could be controlled. A large ceiling fan was in each room. You can drink water out of the tap given it has to meet US standards and the kitchen had new stainless appliances! The balcony looking unto the beach was delightful. We could hear the waves which was a benefit. It is a two story condo which provided some needed privacy for naps. I cannot say enough great things about this place! It was easy to reserve and all the details were followed up with care by Arleen. She made sure she knew our flight arrival times so George could be on hand to greet us. It doesn't get better than that!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We needed a post-Christmas, warm, family friendly place, one that could accommodate 5 adults and a young child. This condo was in walking distance to a sandy beach, was fully furnished and easily accommodated us. Had the pleasures of home (TV, microwave, WiFi, etc) and was in easy driving distance to rain forest, other beaches, great restaurants. But to stay here, you must have a car because it is somewhat isolated. Balcony has view of ocean.

Once in a lifetime experience

  • 5 of 5

Recently I embarked on a quest to bring my 97 year old father and 90 year old mother to Puerto Rico for what would, considering their age, probably be their last time ever. They have not been back to their homeland in well over 30 and 25 years respectively. My goal was to set them up in a beautiful and safe location from which we could travel to see their surviving siblings and where our family could safely and easily come to see my parents during their stay. What I found at Arleen's condo was exactly what we needed and what my parents deserved. The condo was absolutely gorgeous and the area was secure with 24 hour security and the view of the palm trees, the El Yunque like foliage, and beach was stunning. The directions to and from the airport were also so easy, fast and direct. I gave my parents the master bedroom, my partner and I took the guest room, and my parent's care attendant stayed in the small room adjacent to my parents so she could be closer to care for them. The condo had absolutely everything we needed and its decor and amenities were of the utmost taste, quality, and comfort. The pool and the beach at the property were just yards away and were absolutely wonderful. The two different pools for big and little people made it easy for me to bring my parents safely into a swimming pool for their first time in years and they loved it. I was blown away to see them enjoy themselves the way they did and having them walk themselves into the beautiful warm ocean of their homeland was nothing less than emotional for all of us. From the condo I brought my parents to the amazing El Yunque rainforest, and the beautiful Luquillo beach. Both were just several miles away. At Luquillo beach we ate at a restaurant (La Parrilla) that was one of the best I have ever been to (and I live in NYC!!!). On the days our family came to visit us they were so impressed with the property, view, and condo and they found the directions to us to be so easy. They all wanted to find out who to contact to stay there also (and they live in Puerto Rico already!!!). The memories we created on this family trip will forever be etched in our minds and hearts. My parents sacrificed so much to raise us and as far as I am concerned they deserve the absolute best I can bring to them and this is what they got here during their stay in Puerto Rico. To the owner Arleen and the building manager Jorge, that was always so helpful and available to us, I want to thank you so very much!!!

Worth your money

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this condo was superb! We were very comfortable with all the amenities; it felt like home to us. The cleanliness, the good smells, the sights from the balcony, the peace and quiet, the security provided, it all made our stay wonderful. It is all the pictures show and more! Loved the closeness to the beach, the pool, the beach ware, and the closeness to the mall, eating establishments, as well as the "joy de vivre" Puerto Ricans exhibit, especially in the Luquillo beach area. Thanks for such a wonderful stay! It was worth renting this condo!

MOST TRANQUIL BEACH VACATION EVER !!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Puerto Rico, and LOVED it! We are beach vacationers and have been to many beaches, but this one was by far the most tranquil beach we have ever been to. Our first day on the beach, we saw a total of maybe 30 people. The condo was as advertised and more! Very clean, well equipped and beautiful scenery. The condo was supplied with everything you would need to feel right at home plus the luxuries that we are so used to such as internet & big screen televisions. Beach chairs, towels, coolers, toys, and even a wagon were in the condo to transport items to the beach and pool. The pool is very nice, also equipped with tables and chairs. The location is secure and out of the way, but close enough to all the stores and restaurants that one might need. We do recommend renting a car for your stay, and take advantage of going to Old San Juan! The property owner, manager, security guard, and other tenants are very friendly and helpful. The front side has a view of the beach and the back side has a view of the forrest/jungle, so all that you hear are the sounds of the waves and sounds of the wildlife. It is amazing! Most people speak English, but recommend brushing up on some Spanish.

Thank you Arleen for opening up your condo for us! Looking forward to visit again!

Amazing Experience in a Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing!!! That really sums up experience that my group and myself had while staying in the condo. We were lucky to find this location during out stay in P.R and wouldn't change anything. The description of location was on point. It had everything you can imagine, it felt like home. It was was super clean, great location, beautiful balcony, pool, and best part was it was just steeps away from the beach. It was a two floor condo, so it was roomy for my group of five and it still had more room for more. Also, I felt really safe. There was a gate keeper at all times and would do his walks and night walks around the perimeter. The management was really accommodating and helpful. I was able to ask any questions and make a few request before arriving. We were greated by Myriam, she was wonderful, gave us a little tour of the house and showed us where was everything such as extra towels, bed sheets, beach equipment, and took us to a delicious restaurant (El Verde BBQ, a must go). Once she left, it felt like it was our home. We were in middle of everything from San Juan to El Yunque. There are many stores around the area like Ralph's Supermaket, Walgreens, TJ Maxx, Walmart, and restaurants. It's defitnely a place I would recommend for family, friends, co-workers, and to the general public. If you want a quiet and peaceful place to enjoy Puerto Rico, but also wants to experice the lifestyle this is place. I don't write much review, but this was a must. If would go back to Puerto Rico, I would defitnely stay here again. Thank you for everything and making this place feel like... Home.
