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.

Gorgeous apartment stocked with everything you need on a beautiful quiet beach.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 just returned from a wonderful trip to Puerto Rico. This apartment is really beautiful and located in a very peaceful and beautiful area. The beach is gorgeous and virtually empty. We took long walks, played in the waves on the boogie boards provided and really relaxed. If you are looking for a party atmosphere, this is not for you. Also, a car is a necessity but it is conveniently located to lots of activities. Old San Juan, Fajardo and El Yunque were all very easy to get to. We also trekked to the other side of the island to Utuado for a ziplining/kayaking excursion with a company called Batey. Highly recommend them. Absolutely gorgeous to see that part of the island. We even went to a coffee plantation. All the restaurants that Arleen recommended were excellent. We loved El Verde BBQ! So cheap and delicious.

Arleen, the owner, is incredibly responsive and helpful. The property manager, although we didn't meet him, was very friendly also. Thank you Arleen for having your place so well stocked! It had everything we needed for beach days, coolers to pack lunches, and all the kitchen essentials. It is also beautifully decorated with local art. We had an amazing stay!

Easy, beautiful, totally comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Perfect accommodations. Beautifully appointed with a private pool and beach! (Almost no one there). We like to just sit at the pool and beach and read, so for us, it was perfect. Not many places to eat out unless you like street food (carbonara, ponchos etc -deliscious). Nicely situated for shopping. (Ralph's). Very very relaxing.

Arlene(owner) and jorge(manager) delightful to work with. Thank you.

Quiet, peaceful, beach-accessible unit in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

This is a well-equipped, comfortable unit that is on a quiet, sandy beach. We stayed in February and saw almost no other tenants in the complex. We had the pool and beach to ourselves. The location of the complex is great, as it affords quick access (15 min drive) both to Luquillo beach (wonderful public beach) and the rain forrest. San Juan is a quick 25 min drive west, while Fajardo is the same distance east (bioluminescent bay and ferry to the islands). Great place and great location. Owner is very responsive as well. You can't go wrong.

Relaxing and close to many activities.

  • 5 of 5

Impressed with the property: spacious, beautiful views, and close to many different activities. Grocery store is very short drive away. I would definitely return - felt like home. It was an ideal location as we love the country side and having access to the city. The roads in and out are very clear and easy to get around. We Zip lined in the rainforest, walked old San Juan, drove around half the country, spent time with family, walked the beach, and chilled out.

PERFECTION!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous location - quick easy 30 minute drive from San Juan. Safe and quiet gated community with reserved covered and uncovered parking. Beautiful pool area with covered area if you like. The 2 pools are clean and wonderful (one of the pools is 3 feet deep - great for children). Incredible immaculate condo with all modern appliances and amenities. The beach is wonderful. Arleen (owner) was terrific and very helpful with planning and answering all questions. Jorge (on site manager) was incredibly helpful when we arrived. Beautiful beach views from the balcony. The condo was extremely spacious (2 floors). The local grocery store (Ralph's) was a quick 5-10 minute drive away from the condo. El Yunque Rainforest was a quick 15 minute drive away. El Verde BBQ for lunch was amazing (local delicious food 5 minutes away), as well as La Parrilla and Ceviche Hut (both at Luquillo Kiosks) about 15 minutes away from the condo were fabulous restaurants for dinner. I would recommend this condo to everyone without hesitation.

Hated to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults) stayed at the condo from February 11, 2016 to February 18, 2016 and couldn't have been happier with our choice of accommodations. We had a bit of a difficult finding it the first day but no fault of the directions provided - the men just wouldn't listen, hahaha! Everything was exactly as pictured and described and if I had to come up with something to comment on, it would be the beach.... not as nice as I expected as it is quite sloped. There is however, one of the best beaches about 15mins away. The location is great for a quiet place to stay with the convenience of being about 30-45 mins from San Juan (watch the traffic around rush hour though!).

I hope to go back & perhaps stay at a few different places to explore more and if we do I would certainly try and rebook this unit.
