Property description

This 3 bedroom 2 bath family vacation home is situated on four tropical acres with private gated access. This rental includes all the amenities of home with a fully equipped kitchen with all appliances (gas stove, full size refrigerator, blender, coffee maker, juicer, George Foreman), pots, pans, dishes, storage containers, bedding, and towels. Pet and kid friendly. A large patio with no neighbors around greets you and your guests to enjoy morning coffee, sunbathe, grill out, and just enjoy some down time. No need to return home with dirty clothes, there is a full sized washer and dryer, and clothesline on site. The property is close to El Yunque Rainforest, Luquillo Beach, one of the best beaches on the island, Rio Mar Resort, and just 21 easy miles away from the Airport. This is not a cramped beachfront condo, but a secluded country family home located behind a remote control gate, with a long winding driveway surrounded by lush rainforest greenery and landscaping. The open floor plan with spacious rooms are all located on one level, making it easy for elderly or toddlers to get around - no steps. Master Bedroom offers a King sized bed, walk-in closet, and separate bathroom with large shower. The second Bedroom offers a queen sized bed and a twin bed with a large closet. The Third Bedroom offers a queen sized bed and large closet, with a second Bathroom just next door. The house has accommodated many family gatherings with friends and family sharing in the food preparation in the open kitchen with large island, with many guests gravitating to the large patio, or the open two stall garage in rainy weather. If you want to stay where you have all the amenities of home, yet are near to the tourist attractions of the El Yunque Rain Forest, Old San Juan, Fajardo for the ferries to Culebra or Vieques, Luquillo Beach, please consider reserving this home for your vacation.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Hector grew up in the center of the island (Orocovis) and moved to the mainland for more opportunities in the 70's. Each vacation opportunity, we would return to the island to stay with family. In 2001, we had an opportunity to purchase a piece of land close to a relative's house that we always ended up staying with on vacation because of her great location to everything (and her great Puerto Rican cooking!). When Hector retired in 2010, he returned to Puerto Rico to supervise the construction of this vacation home.

Why the Owner Chose Rio Grande:
We chose this location because it is in close proximity to all the attractions and amenities of the big city of San Juan. We enjoy the privacy of the home and its surrounding tropical fruit, flowers, rocks, and palms. We are hybrid Tourists and Locals -- we want to see everything the island has to offer, but we don't want to pay the high costs associated with being a tourist, and we know there is more to the island than San Juan! We want the panaderia (bakery) around the corner for fresh bread or a ham and cheese sandwich for less than $10. We want to visit the off-the-beaten-path mom and pop restaurant with good authentic cuisine.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The trade winds of the island that blow through the house take with it the stress of the 'real world,' the seclusion of the house behind a gate and long driveway allows you to rest and regroup, and the location allows you to easily rejoin the rest of the world on your own terms. The native coqui tree frogs sing you to sleep at night and the roosters down the mountain wake you at day break. Other than maybe your fellow guests, no one else is going to bother you at this vacation home! If you have questions about the property, location, or the island in general, please feel free to contact us by telephone or email.
