Rio Grande apartment description

One of a kind beachfront apartment, located in a modern, recently completed 52 unit boutique complex. This property offers a peacefull, private experience, with miles of secluded and exquisite shorelines and golf course just steps away from your door and 30 mins from airport.

Ample, beautifully decorated (West Elm furniture), 1664 sqft duplex unit with a generous balcony that will make you feel embracing the shoreline and savoring the nights. Ocean views are striking as you open the door to the main living areas, located on the third floor of the building, while the bedrooms remain in the second floor, providing for privacy but maintaining a sense of connection to the beach.

Bedrooms facilities are fully air conditioned and include: master suite with king bed, a cozy chaise lounge, flat screen tv with dvd player and views to the ocean, a den adjacent to the master room with a convertible double twin bed, full private master bathroom with whirpool, separate shower cabin and double sinks. Second bedroom with two twin beds and full private bathroom. Laundry facilities are provided at this level.

Living areas are also air conditioned and include fully equiped european kitchen with granite tops and space for 4 stools, dining area with table for 6. A white leather chaise lounge and sofa awaits to comfort yourself in the ample living room which opens to the balcony and offers spectacular ocean views. Equiped with 46' flat screen tv and Bose stereo system with cd, dvd player,(ipod ready). The balcony is expansive, seats 4 to 6 persons in lounge chairs and is equiped with Weber gas grill.

If you are looking for adventure and sightseeing, there are infinite alternatives: from water sports to horseback riding, El Yunque Rain Forest and Old San Juan, boat or airplane travel options to 'the Islands of Puerto Rico (Vieques and Culebra), the biolouminiscent bay at Fajardo,etc. All these and more can be easily arranged since you will be staying in one of the most important tourists regions of PR.

And if you want some fine dining, there are also many options, since Grand Bay Beach is located adjacent to the caribbean's most recent and luxurious resort: Bahia Beach, host to the new 5 stars St. Regis Hotel, truly an architectural jewel ! Additional nearby resorts include The Rio Mar Wyndham, Coco Beach Resort and El Conquistador, where you can chosse from fine dining, casinos, golf, etc.

But surely the most heartwarming experieces at Grand Bay will remain the most simple; the enjoyment of the soothing breezes, the sounds of the ocean, the strolls along the beach, sun bathing, the birds hovering in the sky, the moonlight reflection on the ocean, the bright stars shining in the night,.......
because here, NATURE takes precedence..!

          Location

          Car: Necessary

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2009

          About the owner: I have been an architect for 25 years and had the oportunity to work on several tourist oriented projects in PR and have visited most of the existing properties similar to Grand Bay. What I found unique about Grand Bay is the unspoiled character of its setting, the privacy it offers,the layouts and finishes of the apartments, the resort like design of the gazebo and pool areas, and the fact that I can walk to the beach and /or drive to the nearby golf courses. There is not another comparable property in Puerto Rico where you can do that.

          Why the Owner Chose Rio Grande:
          My wife and I had the dream of investing in an area of extreme natural beauty, adjacent to the beach and golf course. We have always enjoyed the beach and wanted a property like this. The access is so convenient. Recently completed Route 66 expressway takes you directly from the airport to PR187, a beautiful tree canopied roadway which leads to Grand Bay. Also the fact that we are neighbors to the most striking and recent resort in the caribbean(Bahia Beach) made us feel confident of our investment. Now we are sure of our good decision.

          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
          Spectacular, we really have enjoyed every minute spent in our beach apartment. We enjoy the privacy, the uniqueness of the natural context, the beautifull beach, the strolls along the shoreline, the nights in our balcony with the ocean breeze and the shinning stars foreshadowing a beautifull tomorrow. Each time we come it feels like a small vacation. The apartment feels extremely cozy, ample and user friendly. If I feel like playing golf, there are five courses to choose from within 25 min drive, afterwards, a swim into the beach makes me feel like the perfect day.
