Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Rio Grande - Deluxe Villa Steps From Ocean

2 bedrooms, pull out couch in living area, 2 full bathrooms, kitchen, sleeps 6

This breathtaking, fully renovated and fully furnished garden style first floor two bedroom ocean-front villa is located in the heart of the Grand Wyndham Rio Mar Resort in northeastern Puerto Rico..considered America's closest island paradise. Come and appreciate direct oceanfront views from your two spacious balconies. Enjoy all the comforts of home with a roomy , comfortable living and dining area, a fully equipped kitchen, two full baths, three wall-mounted flat-screen televisions and a built -in washer and dryer. All of this privacy awaits your arrival with the addition of two beachfront pools and a hot tub--all for your pleasure. Top restaurants, two championship golf courses and the famous El Yunque Rainforest complete this property's allure for a vacation never to be forgotten.

Amenities: Enjoyment starts the minute you arrive at Ocean Villas! Upon your arrival, a management representative will greet you and acquaint you with the surroundings and your villa. You can refresh immediately in your spacious infinity pool which seems to spread beyond its rim to the endless ocean. If you wish to exercise in the extensive lap pool which is directly under your raised, first floor balcony , you can be assurred that the heated spa is waiting afterwards for your relaxation as the ocean waves sing, 'Don't worry--be happy.' Of course, this villa's owner wants you to be happy too, so you will be called and welcomed specifically with answers to any questions you might pose.

Restaurants: Notable restaurants on site include: Marbella, an international, casual, family friendly restaurant which also offers a magnificent breakfast buffet; Palio, the award winning Italian restaurant; and Shimas, offering sushi and Asian cusine. The oceanside Tiki Bar and Grill opens at 11:00AM every day where you can sip tropical beverages garnished with warm sunshine and cool trade winds. On a hill five minutes away is Ritchie's Restaurant with unparalleled views of the Caribbean panorama and superb food to match. Of course, this villa has a fully equipped kitchen, so if you want to just 'stay in' and fix something yourself, that's fine too since this is an amenity hotels can't offer.. Relax! Pack a picnic lunch and munch away on the beach . Grocery stores are minutes away. Your convenience and pleasure are paramount.

Surrounding Excitement: Once you are totally relaxed, think about experiencing more of this beautiful island. Less than ten minutes away is the El Yunque National Forest--a finalist in the New Seven Wonders of Nature competition. Twenty four miles of clearly marked and well maintained recreational trails are available highlighting waterfalls and swimming holes. Watersports are available on site, but in addition, catamaran sailing, leisure and sunset cruising, deep sea fishing, island day trips, surfing, snorkeling and scuba diving are available just twenty minutes away in Fajardo and LaQuilla. Don't forget history and shopping also. Forty minutes away you can take a day trip to visit picturesque Old San Juan which highlights centuries old Spanish fortresses, cathedrals and museums. Walk along blue cobblestone streets accentuated by boutiques, clothing stores and art galleries. Stop along the waterfront to watch cruise ships anchor and enjoy the many superb restaurants at every stop. It's fantastic!

Just Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time visiting the beautiful island of PR - we have stayed in a different place every time. We will definitely return to this Villa again. Sandra the owner is so wonderful to work with - she sent us e-mails ahead of time with many things to do, suggested restaurants, and even specific directions to get to the lovely villa. When we arrived Jesus Garcia was waiting there for us! He helped us with our luggage - and when we entered the Villa - the air condition was on and all the TV's were playing Christmas music for us!! It was the nicest touch. My two boys (ages15-20) really enjoyed the beach directly out front. The water here actually had waves which they really enjoyed. The pools were very nice as well and as a bonus they are open 24 hours to swim anytime you want (Most places are usually closed when you return from dinner). We explored a few other beaches that were perfect for snorkeling. The Villa that is described here is everything and more. We needed nothing and wished we could have stayed longer:) Thanks Sandra for everything!!

Picture perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures Sandra has on here cannot begin to show you how beautiful and immaculate her villa is. She is fabulous to work with, she truly puts your needs first and works so hard to provide the best possible stay for her guests. I have only a few issues and one I'm fairly certain cannot be helped. The humidifier that needs to be run is SO DARN LOUD, but it is a necessity so we dealt with it. The infinity pool outside the villas needs work, tiles are missing to the point where it could've extremely dangerous but certainly didn't hamper our fun. My family adored the villa, the stunning beach, the rainbows and sunsets and night time swims. The main hotel water slide and pool were a big hit with our three 8 year olds too. You will not find a kinder, more helpful, more accessible person to plan your vacation with. We had many hiccups with our trip, none of which were the fault of Sandra or Wyndham Grand Rio Mar (car issues, lock outs etc...) Each problem that we encountered was handled beautifully by the villa manager and staff. If you want tropical beauty, relaxation and family fun book with Sandra, you won't be sorry!

Owner's Response: Jennifer, It was wonderful having you and thanks so much for your review:-) Jesus Garcia and I are SO happy you enjoyed your vacation at your villa. Our goal is always to make a perfect vacation for you and your family. Thanks for the suggestions also. The dehumidifiers will be replaced and the pool actually is going to be totally redone during August. It has been on the Ocean Villa's Housing Association's list, which was approved recently, so if you come back again (and we REALLY hope you do), it will be all completed. Have a great summer, and we loved your time with us. Sincerely, Sandra Blaeser

Incredibly Awesome! - words from 3 1/2 yr old

  • 5 of 5

It is no wonder that this villa and owner get 5 star reviews. Everything is just as it is portrayed. I, personally, could have spent the entire 24/7 at the villa and the beach. Sandra, the owner and Jesus, the manager met our every need. If you have a question, just ask. They are so helpful. We did "an adventure" everyday. The people were very friendly and helpful - even in the non tourist places like the grocery stores. Our 3 1/2 year old grandson summed it up. Every day was the best ever and when he was back home he told anyone who asked that it was incredibly awesome!

Owner's Response: Judy, It gives me such pleasure to see my guests such as you and your family, happy! I understand that every vacation time together is an ultimate experience that will be a memory forever. My goal along with Jesus is to make sure that happens. Thanks so much for your note. Please come back. There is a lot more waiting for your grandson as he gets older. You have only scratched the surface of wonderful things to do near Ocean Villas. My best, Sandra

Fabulous villa.

  • 5 of 5

My family of six have visited many vacation destinations over the past 26 years and usually rent a condo and I can unequivocally say that Sandra's villa was easily one of the top 2. This was our 3rd visit to Puerto Rico and each time it's been better. Regarding the villa, the listing description was accurate in every detail except the pictures don't accurately depict the size of the rooms. They are actually more spacious in person which was a pleasant surprise. The property was clean and well maintained and the beds and living room furniture were quite comfortable which is important to us. I was concerned about the first floor location but it was actually elevated a few feet off the ground which made it fine. My favorite part was the picturesque oceanfront views and listening to the waves while relaxing on one of the two balconies. The two pools on site were kept sparkling clean and were never crowded so we didn't have to fight for the chairs or umbrellas. We also had access to the fitness center, spa, pools and Tiki Bar at the resort next door which we utilized on numerous occasions. Sandra, the owner, was in constant communication with me which was much appreciated. Her suggestions of where to buy groceries and where to eat were extremely helpful especially Richies with unbeatable views and righteous mufongo. The location worked well for us because it was 5 minutes away from the Rainforest, a must see, and only about 25 minutes from Old San Juan. You will need to rent a car.(Save well over $100 by renting from an Isla Verde car rental site one exit away from the airport and not from the airport site itself). I look forward to going back in the near future and highly recommend this villa.

The villa was everything that was promised!! Beautifully furnished and located on a gorgeous tropical property! Sandra was so easy to work with and answered any & all of our questions, as well as sent helpful list of suggestions! The rain forest was our boys favorite!! We made 2 visits to the kiosiks down the road! Terrific food and local flare! Would go back to Rio Mar in heartbeat! thanks Sandra!

In a word, "Awesome"

  • 5 of 5

The property is breath taking. It was immaculate, well furnished with a location to kill for. The dual balconies overlooked a pool with the gorgeous beach directly behind. Sandra and her associate, Jesus were gracious hosts. They bumped the level of the experience up to the exceptional level. Many thanks for a wonderful place to hang our hats.

Nothing beats the location of this villa! Conveniently nestled on the Northeast Coast of Puerto Rico between the ocean and at the foot of the famous El Yunque Rain Forest, this breathtaking, fully renovated and fully furnished two-bedroom ocean-front villa sits 30 feet from the beach and 50 feet from the Wyndham Rio Mar Beach Resort which offers first class restaurants along with a lively casino, nightly entertainment, and relaxation at the Mandara Spa.. Two golf courses are on site - the Greg Norman's River Course & The George Fazio's Ocean Course. All of these amenities - and you are only 30 minutes from the airport and approximately 40 minutes into Old San Juan. Spend endless hours walking the beach or relaxing under a palm tree on the sand. If you wish for more action, travel just 10 minutes to the rain forest where you can walk forever in the jungle setting. It is a paradise waiting for you...

Other Activities: Visit Rain Forest with waterfalls and hiking

Golf: Two world class golf courses are on the villa's site--the Greg Norman's River course and Tom and George Fazio's Ocean Course. The River Course expands 6,945 yards along the Memeyes River, framed by mountains and sea. Ideal for players of all skill levels, the design features wide fairways, open greens, shallow bunkers and light rough. Enjoy the Ocean Course along the Atlantic panorama with its classic layout which features four sets of tees, numerous bunkers and elevated greens. The Oceanside par 3 hole (238 yards) always rates among the Caribbean's best. Off site, four other world class golf courses are within eight miles of the villa including El Conquistador Golf Club, two Grand Melia International Golf Clubs, and Bahia Golf Club.
