Property description

Our villa is located in an exclusive BEACHFRONT refuge of privately-owned villas inside the grounds of the Rio Mar Beach & Golf Club, a Wyndham Grand Resort (formerly the Westin Rio Mar Resort). You can't get a property closer to the beach as these! It is also literally next to the main hotel building so you are within easy walking distance, instead of a mile++ away like most other villas at the resort!

Our villa is about 1,400 square feet and is tastefully furnished, fully air conditioned, has wifi, and cable tv in the living room and each of the bedrooms. It features 2 bedrooms (one with king bed and the other with 2 full size beds) separate living area (with sofa bed) and dinning area, two full bathrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen with all major appliances (including washer/dryer) and furnished balcony where you not only can see the beach, but also hear its soothing sound. Not only are we villa owners but we also own a vacation rental agency for several other properties, which allows us to offer the best prices and provide some hotel-like services such as airport transfers, concierge, maid service, baby sitters, handyman, among other services. These are exclusive to our guests.

Discover all the comforts of a luxury home while being inside a 500 acre security-gated world class resort offering a 2 mile long beach, different pools, 13 tennis courts, two 18-hole championship golf courses, multiple restaurants and lounges, bars, casino, spa, gym, kid's camp, water-sports, and many other activities without actually having to leave the resort!

The Resort has been recognized by the Connoisseur's guide of Resorts and Great Hotels as one of the world's best and the picture of the Wyndham Rio Mar Beach Resort lobby was in the cover of the 15th anniversary edition of the guide.

VRBO Bear stayed here:


My trip to Puerto Rico got off to a great start when I saw this beautiful development right on the beach, just a two minute walk to the luxurious Westin Rio Mar Resort and Casino. The drive from the San Juan Airport took only 45 minutes in heavy afternoon traffic (and only 25 minutes off rush hour), and we discovered that you really need a car to see everything near this beautiful property.

The villa was private and quiet; noisy college students on Spring Break were no where to be found. In fact, the beach at the Ocean Villas was practically deserted, even at this peak travel time. It was a perfect place for my beary big family of seven (including one small bear.) Two large bedrooms separated by a living, dining and kitchen area, left everyone a place to sleep, although I spent most of my time perched on a piano looking out to the ocean below.

I visited El Yunke, a beautiful rain forest where we hiked and learned about the unique animals that live there, including the little Coqui frog. I didn’t see one, but I could hear them everywhere. The only problem with El Yunke was that no bears live there; that makes no sense to me!

The beach was less than 40 feet from the villa. It was well appointed with free chairs and umbrellas for beachcombers. The water was very warm, even in March. When we got tired of being on the beach, we could go to the pool and watch iquanas and other lizards sunning next to us.

This condo was quiet, beautiful and well appointed. My nine year old bear handler and his sixteen year old brother had just as much fun as the two 22 year old college students and their parents. All of us found things to do on the beach in Puerto Rico. I bet you can too.

Signed, The VRBO Bear

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We bought our first property at Rio Mar over 25 years ago. Soon after, we started renting it when not using it, and people began asking if we had larger properties or additional villas to accommodate several families traveling together. As a result, we spoke with our neighbors and friends at Rio Mar and started offering their villas for rent as well. With this, a little business started, and we have continued to purchase properties for rent, as well as manage others owned by family and friends. Since we are long-time owners at Rio Mar, we know the area well and care for it very much. In addition, since we have made a business out of it, we have our own desk at the lobby of the Ocean Villas building where we provide Concierge Services and assistance exclusively to our guest, as well as employing a full-time handyman so that constant maintenance is performed to our properties.

Why the Owner Chose Rio Grande:
Rio Mar is a beautiful 500-acre security gated community with manicured gardens, golf courses, tennis courts, beach, pools, restaurants, etc., etc. The Ocean Villas (where this villa is located) is directly in front of the beach and right next to the main hotel building. There is no better location than this at the resort!
