Rio Grande villa description
The property is made up of small islands that are surrounded by lakes and connected by bridges. The lakes connect to the Espiritu Santos River, which starts at the base of the rain forest and ends at the most eastern point of the property into the ocean. This is a favorite hangout for manatees, sand dollars, and leatherback turtles.
A boat house sits on the biggest lake on the property, were sailboats, kayaks, paddle boards, and bikes are available to enjoy. The lake at the boat house is very calm, it's great for beginners and kids, and it's big enough for the more advanced.
Surrounding the property are nature paths that are great for jogging, bike riding, and bird and iguana watching. Many unusual birds have flocked to Bahia from the rain forest. The property is also part of the Audubon Society.
Many efforts were taken while constructing Bahia Beach Resort to assure an Eco Friendly property. During construction, trees that had to be removed were then planted in a different location and tagged. An on-site nursery is used to store plants and trees temporarily until they are re-located.
Also available close by are Coco Beach Golf Club, home to the Puerto Rico PGA tournament, and great surfing, scuba diving, snorkling, and sailing.
This Villa at Bahia Beach Resort is a great place for couples looking for a romantic getaway and for families who love to enjoy the outdoors.
Keywords: Luxury Golf Villa located above the 10th tee on the beautiful Robert Trent Jones, Jr. designed golf course in Bahia Beach Resort/St. Regis 5 star property. Walking distance to Sand Dollar Beach, a wide two mile beach where many sand dollars and other beautiful shells wash ashore. The months of May and June are nesting season for the leatherback turtles; if you are lucky, you can see the turtles making their nests. At the end of the summer, the baby turtles make their way back into the ocean.

ReviewsWrite a review
We stayed in this beautiful villa for 14 days in Oct/Nov 2013. The owners live 30 minutes away, and have been very forthcoming throughout the process. Kym replies to e-mails within a very short time period, and was very helpful while we were in Puerto Rico. On our second day she showed up with a jogging stroller that we could use for our 6 month old baby. We thought that was very thoughtful, and a nice touch. The apartment is spotless, exactly as pictured.The resort is stunning and extremely well kept. There were very few people staying in Las Verandas while we were there, and we mainly had the pool to ourselves. In addition to the pool in the pictures, there is one for babies/toddlers. I've seen that some people rate the beach 3/10. In that respect I was positively surprised when we arrived. The sand is brown (not white), but very soft. The ocean is green/brown (not turqoise) - but it's the Atlantic..! We walked the beach almost every morning, and enjoyed it a lot. We didn't swim in the ocean though. The nicest stretch of beach, in our opinion, is from the beach club heading east. The part heading west (in front of St.Regis) is not as nice. We didn't get a single mosquito bite while we were there. The apartment is above the 10th tee and Cocoteros (open 7 am-4 pm, serves breakfast and lunch), and has morning sun. There is a Ralph's supermarket and Walgreens 5-10 minutes away. In this area there's also fast food/gas station/Sears/Radio Shack etc. Walmart is about 15-20 minutes away, right across the street from the Outlet Mall (Nike, Reebok, Gap, BCBG, Carter's, Guess, Ralph Lauren and so forth). San Juan/Airport is about 30 minutes away. You are close to El Yunque Rainforest and Luquillo beach (Montserrat, kiosks), and a bit further east is Fajardo. From Fajardo you can catch the ferry to Vieques or Culebra. As we were traveling with a baby we decided not to go. However, we did go to Icacos with Captain Mingo - a 10 minute boat ride from Las Croabas. We chose this apartment as we wanted more space than we would get in a hotel room, and we wanted access to a washer/dryer (traveling with kids...). We did a lot of research, and I am pretty sure we got the best there is. At least we have no regrets - none at all! I would not hesitate to rent from Kym and Armando again.

We stayed in this property for a family wedding which was held at the St Regis Bahia Resort. We found the place spacious, clean, well provisioned. The balcony overlooks a golf green but you can hear the surf in the distance. Having a golf cart to use was a great convenience. The owner was responsive, and easy to deal with. There are lots of acitivties available: kyaking and bicycles are available for free, the beach is glorious. We don't golf, but I understand the course is very good. It's a good base to explore the island from.

We enjoyed this beautifully furnished villa overlooking the golf course. The owners were helpful and the listing was very accurate. Very well maintained and clean, with lots of amenities. The beach is just steps away as is the fabulous pool! We especially liked the large veranda overlooking the 10th hole of this wonderful golf course! We certainly recommend this villa!

Why the Owner Chose Rio Grande:
We decided to buy in Bahia Beach because it is a really unique property. You feel like you have entered into a tropical resort that is very secluded and private as soon as you drive through the front gates. It will also be the home to the first five star hotel in Puerto Rico, the St. Regis, opening in October of 2010. The unspoiled beach is two miles long and full of sand dollars. The well maintained golf course is one of the best on the island. We also liked that it is an eco friendly property.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Some of the unique benefits of the property are privacy, lush tropical surroundings, view of the ocean, rainforest, rivers, and golf course. Great place to play golf, kayak, sail, paddle board, surf, go shelling, skin dive, and scuba dive.
