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.

Wonderful vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

Since this was our first trip to Puerto Rico we had no idea what to expect. Arlene was very helpful and had lots of good information for us. She had awesome Jorge bring us a new Pac-n-play when she found out our guests brought their baby. (Thank you) Her place was great for relaxation and a perfect base for our local explorations. It was everything we had read in all her other reviews.

Beachfront Bliss ...

  • 5 of 5

With our first trip to Puerto Rico, this condo and its location were absolutely perfect for our family of 5. We have become accustomed to renting condos/homes when on vacation - rather than staying in hotels - and this condo was perfect and exactly as promised. Arleen has equipped this condo perfectly for a family vacation - linens, cookware, beach chairs and toys, towels, etc. The condo is well appointed, nicely decorated, spacious and definitely comfortable - everything is in excellent condition and well maintained. The huge balcony/porch was a fabulous place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee and an evening mojito! The beach was absolutely amazing -- perfect sand, warm water and calm enough for the kids to swim in -- and no fighting over beach chairs or the perfect spot to sit. (We did visit other beaches in Puerto Rico such as Condado, Luquillo and Isla Verde - which were much more congested and not as pristine as this one.) A car is needed, but the drive is short to restaurants, shopping and adventures. Would definitely stay here again!

Comfortable Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to Puerto Rico. Even though we arrived late, Jorge was there to greet us with a smile and to show us around the condo. We found everything clean, well stocked and well laid out. Arleen supplies all the comforts of home, A/C, ceiling fans, large screen TV, stainless appliances, quality cookware, and even spices. Our friends who joined us a few days later were equally impressed. Having two bedrooms with ensuite baths was perfect for two couples. We all enjoyed the comfortable furniture out on the large balcony. Having chairs to take to the beach was a plus. Each morning we took long walks on the beach which seemed liked it belonged only to us. We also enjoyed the pool area on windier days. The location was somewhat isolated which afforded a lot of privacy, yet close enough to shopping and to several towns that offered great restaurant options. My review would not be complete without mentioning that my husband lost his wallet with credit cards, cash, and ID. How would we get home? Arleen and her husband went above and beyond to help us contact the owners of LaParrilla Restaurant, which had closed the next day, and tracked down the owner. To our amazement his wallet and everything in it was returned. Thank you to Arleen, her husband, and thank you to Frankie at LaParrilla! Needless to say there is no better service than that!

Great place for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Came to Puerto Rico for the 1st time. We have 3 children 10, 8 and 4. The condo was perfect. Arleen is very organized and makes sure there is someone to meet you. Our flight had to be rescheduled, no problem, George met us at the condo. It is about 30 min drive from San Huan. Beautiful condo, has everything you need. From linens, towels, dishes and including beach toys, boogie boards and such. AC and fans in every room, work perfectly. Supermarket 5 min drive. Beach and pool are beautiful and were for the most part private, very few people. We loved it, will come back again. You need a car to get anywhere.

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.
