**Includes VIP Passes to hotel pool** We first encountered this villa, situated on the grounds of the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa, the summer of 2013 after we purchased our first villa in Cluster II. Every day we would spend time at the Cluster's private pool, and look up at a beautiful villa overlooking the pool. It was perfect and had everything you would ever want--a gorgeous view, excellent light, and an expansive terrace. But it had no life; it was always closed. We joked that we should buy it--if only to breathe new life into it. That joke soon became reality. We found the owners, and shortly thereafter we owned this unique property. What followed was an intensive restoration phase. No surface was left untouched; the original, authentic Mediterranean design was lovingly preserved and we updated all appliances and systems to modern standards that discerning guests expect. We absolutely love spending time in this gorgeous villa and look forward to sharing this unique property with others.
Villa Fortuna is a perfect getaway destination for uncompromising families who require both proximity to amenities for family or friends as well as a chic environment for the adults. We're also a great solution for two couples traveling together who appreciate a fun yet refined vacation experience.
We have meticulously restored this villa in the Mediterranean style and original spirit of Rio Mar and its architecture. To that end, Villa Fortuna is truly a place to disconnect from the daily grind and reconnect with nature and the vibrant natural scene of Puerto Rico. All rooms have a commanding ocean view and look out over the community's private pool and the Rio Mar Ocean Golf Course. Guests will notice that the villa is cooled by the natural trade winds that bless the island as well as ceiling fans in every room. For guests who need to stay connected, high speed internet is available, as is a Bose stereo system and a 50 inch flat screen TV.

The villa is located in Cluster II of the Rio Mar Resort. On the Rio Mar property guests have access to the cluster's private pool and to the private Rio Mar Residents' Beach Club, which also has a large pool, beach chairs for your relaxation and food and drinks on the weekends. Two award winning golf courses (Ocean and River), as well as an extensive tennis center featuring Har-Tru courts are available for sports enthusiasts. The Wyndham Rio Mar resort on the property also features a wide variety of restaurants and a casino.
The villa's location makes it a great launching point to see the sites outside of the property as well. El Yunque Rainforest is a five minute drive away, Old San Juan is only about 40 minutes away. Laguna Grande, one of only five bioluminescent bays in the entire world, is nearby for an evening excursion, the beautiful islands of Culebra and Vieques are easy day trips as well. (See map above for location of the villa and locations of these places.)
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Professionals in the design and beauty industries, Rodrigo and Elliott spend their time between New York City and Rio Mar.
Why the Owner Chose Rio Grande: Historically the second home community of Puerto Rican families, Rio Mar has always been known across the island as an exclusive retreat for Puerto Rican professionals that resorts built later have tried to replicate. The architecture of the villas across the property conforms to the rolling shape of the hills, making each villa unique and the grounds feel organic. A native of Puerto Rico, Rodrigo spent his teenage years at Rio Mar, and dreamed of owning a property here while growing up. Living in New York City crystallized the need to have a retreat to relax and recharge. At Rio Mar, we've found the perfect villa to do just that.
