                  Located on the El Yunque Rainforest Foothills, we are a country living destination, but really close to all major attractions. You will enjoy the relaxation of a tropical retreat, and still be able to go on exciting adventures very close by!

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: I am a retired FAA air traffic controller, have my own real estate business on the side, and love music, reading, dogs, and the beach, beach, beach!! I recently purchased this brand new Luxury Villa in Rio Mar as my retirement home, but own two other beachfront properties and a mountain retreat, so I rent them out to like-minded beach and coastal living lovers who enjoy the beach lifestyle. My properties are spic-and-span, and appointed just as your home would be - only the best is acceptable! My favorite phrase is: 'People don't care how much you know, they want to know how much you care!', and I apply that to all I do, so you can be sure all your vacation needs will be met, and I will take care of any situation that may arise to make sure your vacation experience is perfect!

                  Why the Owner Chose El Verde:
                  I've always loved A-frame type Chalets, they remind me of a place out in Switzerland, of a laid-back life, of exclusivity and fun. When I saw this Chalet, I had to have it! The privacy on two acres is a plus, you feel away from it all, and totally connected to the sounds, smells and sights of a tropical paradise!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                  What I love most of my Chalet is the porch! I can just hang out on the hammock, reading a book, enjoying the constant easterly winds that come at me from the valley...then a quick jump (or dive!) into our 8 foot deep pool, then dry out on the pool deck gawking at the incredible ocean views!!
