About the Property

2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, sleeps 8

Villa Mattina will make your family's hotel lovers and independent spirits equally happy! Breezy apartment on family-friendly resort grounds with easy access to beach and tropical rainforest. Located in a gated community within Wyndham resort, it's also in a great location for island adventures.
Designed to accommodate family fun and comfort, this large, airy unit was built in the 1980s (unlike newer smaller units). Each bedroom has an enormous en suite walk-in closet (almost the size of a Manhattan studio!) You will love having all the extra space to spread your wings and decompress!

Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Resort is nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and El Yunque rain forest. Enjoy the lovely ocean breezes as you eat outside on the terrace or read inside with your feet up on the couch. Within the premises, drive the golf cart to the beach, choose golf, tennis or water sports. Or venture out to famous Luquillo beach barely a couple of miles east or other off-the-beaten path spots in the rainforest. A vigorous hike or a stroll through nature awaits you in El Yunque which is 'across the road'. Do not miss a kayak trip through the mangroves and Las Cabezas bioluminescent bay in Fajardo. This is a great location to come back home to at the end of the day. Villa Mattina is the respite you have been longing for.

TV, DVD + Internet-- Advantage for Netflix Members: There is 37' flat screen with basic cable and internet. There is a DVD player as well. If you are suscribed to Netflix, this state of the art DVD player allows you to view your movies directly so you don't have to travel with your own DVDs.

iHome- Radio, iPod and iPhone - Music: There is also an iHome for last generation iPods or iPhones.

Occupancy: Rates are based on a 4-person maximum occupancy. Accommodations for more may be made available for an extra charge. In any event, the maximum occupancy is 8 persons, including children.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: I help my mom run this property. My mom loves tennis and golf, among other outdoor sports, and the Rio Mar Club and Community offered a wholesome social network and infrastructure to do both for adults and children.

Why the Owner Chose Rio Mar Cluster 1, Río Grande, Puerto Rico:
We keep a coconut as a door-stopper to keep the front door open for the beautiful cross breeze! The villa is away from the hotel activity, in a family environment.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
With all these chairs and sofas, you can accommodate or entertain your kids and their friends, and still have separate space for adults.
