Rio Grande bed and breakfast description

LOOKING FOR A TRANSCENDING PLACE, LOST IN TIME?
Bare Dreams is a novel and paradisiacal place just for two. Its attentive and exquisite owner has designed a unique concept in its class, offering concierge services in an exclusive oceanfront property located at Las Picuas Beach, in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. This is a quiet, thus very private beach that will be totally enjoyed by the only two guests at Bare Dreams (you and your compagnion). The property consists of a 1 acre beach front lot with a 3,500 square ft. Eclectic Mediterranean house from which you and your companion may enjoy contemplating spectacular views of a beautifully landscaped flowers and trees garden and the Atlantic Ocean right outside your room. Guests at Bare Dreams will be extended with the highest quality service and personalized treatment. Upon arrival, you will enjoy a welcoming reception with the owner, along with a glass of either champagne, white or red wine and home made spreads, to get you acquainted with the property and area. The house has several terraces to enjoy the stunning day and night views and listening to the crashing waves and the melodic chant of the Coquí frogs (tiny little frogs native to PR). You may enjoy long walks along the coastline, ocean swims, exercise, snorkeling, sun bathe or you may simply relax in the tranquil and pristine crystal clear waters of our Caribbean jewel retreated from all tensions and the daily world. Bare Dreams is ideal for U.S., European and other International couples who love nature and pets and the total relaxation of beautiful surroundings. The premises are also home for five amicable and trained dogs (two are handicapped) that accompany Saadia throughout the year.

To make your stay an intimate and unique experience in its class, Bare Dreams has only one guestroom for two people per stay, which includes a queen size bed with fresh linens, a fully equipped bathroom with hot water and towels, freezer/refrigerator, Wi-Fi Internet connection, air ventilator and air conditioner. Coffee maker, beach towels/chairs, cooler, and floaters are also included and laundry service is available at an additional cost. Printer Services are available for a nominal fee. Your guestroom opens into a 750 square foot terrace at its footsteps, with a view of the patio and beach (5,000 square ft. with 5 stations containing flowers and tree gardens with benches), for your enjoyment. The property is secure both day and night and is also equipped with an emergency water cistern of 600 gallons and a 15KV power plant. The main terrace offers a sitting area with patio tables and chairs, a hammock and a decorative pond, which create the perfect atmosphere to chat or listen to music. A second, more private terrace located on the second floor of the house with a view of the beach is also available with lounge chaises, and is ideal for the enjoyment of topless sunbathing, reading a good book or the platinum lighted ocean on full moon nights.

As a complement, we also offer relaxing therapeutic massages through a private masseuse on the premise to be arranged by appointment.

                  Year Purchased: 1984

                  About: I acquired the land where Bare Dreams is established during the mid-80’s, as a suggestion from my father. The entire farm consisting of 29 acres was purchased between my brother and me with the knowledge that 24 of those acres could not be developed, as they belonged to the natural resources reserve which is right behind my property. Since before the 80s I have led a busy city life, where I worked 19 years in corporate management; establishing Start-up operations in data and telecommunications both in the U.S. and Internationally. I have also run my own Telecom Consulting business during the past 17 years. Finally eight years ago, I decided to move from the city into this piece of paradise in order to fulfill my dream and built my home with open spaces, inspired from my many travels in Europe. I also wanted to have enough land so I could walk around and enjoy each corner during my morning breakfast. A place where I could garden, work, exercise and live all year round beach front, while also reaching out for peace and tranquility. A home filled with dreams that could be shared with persons around the world with parallel common grounds and frame of mind with regards to hide away places to stay, surrounded by birds, butterflies, nature and total relaxation. I also wanted to be able to enjoying life to its fullest in a very simple manner without giving away the fine things in life. I opened this new B&B concept with the intent to offer my guests a vision of an unforgettable experience, framed by first class, warm and cozy service.

                  Why Rio Grande:
                  Bare Dreams is a perfect example of what anyone would dream while travelling to the Caribbean. A secluded beach front location with private access to the ocean either day or night combined with great relaxation and the highest level of service. If you are looking to transcend yourself into another world, you came to the right place. We are close to everything you may need including various hotels, golf courses, casinos, all kinds of activities, restaurants and even the city life, yet away from it all in this exclusive location. Do as much or as little as you would like. Various nearby beaches also available in addition to the one in front of the property.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
                  You can see the ocean from anywhere in the house and enjoy the constant trade winds. The Eclectic/Mediterranean property style is perfect to unwind and the walk around the garden and beach provide for a very romantic and relax surroundings. The secluded beach in front of the property is in a very nice and protected area which is perfect for swimming, snorkeling or simply sit in a sandy shallow area with your beach chair. Owner lives on the second floor so she is available any time to serve you and meet your needs. If you prefer to sleep late, lunch can also be arranged. Anything can be done as long as you feel like it. Just ask your Concierge! Lastly, vehicle available upon request. Call for details.
