About Jorge

Welcome to our vacation home!!! Isn’t just a sale line, is exactly what it is, “our vacation and second home”, decorated with great love where we have experience so many wonderful time, incredible sunsets, beach time, nice suntan and many romantic nights under the stars. We want to share this tropical paradise with few travelers that want to rent our second home only in some period of time during the year to a selected couple or families without children’s. Other than the amenities listed below, the apartment includes a bottle of red wine for each evening during your stay and a full pantry.

Jorge purchased this condo in 2009

Why Jorge chose Rio Grande

When we see for the first time this small 52 apartment Luxury Beachfront Boutique Property my wife and I was impress with the beach and his 3 miles of crystal waters which allow us to walk, enjoy nature and be relax. The driving distance from our home and Old San Juan are only 30 minutes and easy to get to and from the airport. Great property design, pristine beaches and close distance to the main tourist attractions on the North and East part of the Island like Old San Juan and El Yunque National Forest (currently choose as finalist in the selection process of the 7th Wonders of the World) help us make the decision very easy.

What makes this condo unique

Location: short walk to the beach, the golf and fishery, a 15-minute drive to an Outlet Mall and Wal-Mart Super Center, 30 minutes from Airport, 15 minutes to El Yunque National Forest and horseback riding.

The accommodations were very comfortable and had everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with food and we enjoyed the bottle of wine Jorge left to welcome us! Loved the pool and loved having the beach right there.

Super location, Super hosts

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to base your PR exploring. Right on the beach, with a pool. Walk 20 minutes down the beach to the Bahia Beach resort. Near El Yunque rainforest, Pistones kiosks, and only 25 minutes to the airport, 35 minutes to San Juan. Jorge and Wanda are excellent hosts and provide everything you need to get started. A snorkling trip to Calebra is a must.

Postcard Worthy'

  • 5 of 5

Jorge and his lovely wife couldn't have been more hospitable. Our plane arrived late and he was worried about us finding the condo in the dark so he met us at the car rental in San Juan and we followed him there. The condo was just like the pictures. The living room balcony and the master bedroom overlook the pool and the beautiful beach. It was a gorgeous private beach with blue green water. They had stocked the kitchen with all the basic necessities including local rum and coffee. He made sure every question was answered and in a timely manner. This complex is a little off the beaten path but very close to the St. Regis. I prefer the condo and the sound of the coqui every night. The condo was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. I would go back again. Be sure to eat at Mi Vida Cafe near the rainforest and El Verde BBQ in Rio Grande.

Absolutely Amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent travelers and used to staying in beautiful places, but Jorge's condo and hospitality blew us away!!! The condo itself is amazing. It is in the perfect location, beautifully decorated, filled with everything you would need for the perfect vacation. It is on the top floor and the corner unit - so desirable. The kitchen was fully-stocked and made it so easy to relax without going out. We were able to make breakfast, lunch, and dinner for a few days. I loved experimenting with the range of spices provided. The kids were so excited to find all kinds of treats in the cupboards! Everything provided was of the best quality - the towels were so plush and such fun designs! Every detail had been planned - from extra hats to sunblock. We were welcomed with a friendly phone call and full instructions. Jorge provided us with a list of restaurants and step by step itinerary suggestions. We loved the restaurants and had the luxury of being directed by a "local expert." Make sure to try the Red Snapper at La Parrila. The condo was so beautiful, especially with a private beach that was hard to leave. We truly enjoyed the beach chairs, so conveniently located in the garage. We had to tear ourselves away to go and enjoy the tourist areas El Morro, Old San Juan, Ponce, etc. Make sure to enjoy a coconut from La Tortuga :) Feeding the pigeons in Old San Juan was such a fun experience! They gathered by our feet, gently pecking for rice (available at the supermarket in the square). We loved the El Yunque rain forest, where we hiked and swam in the waterfall La Mina. Don't forget a towel! Jorge helped us to manage a trip to the Camuy caves, which were incredible! He directed our trip details so that we could make sure to catch the cave tours. He was the best host - always anticipating our needs and making sure that everything was going well. It was so incredibly difficult to leave this beautiful and welcoming condo. Moonlight on the beach was mesmerizing, and the sunrise was so gorgeous. I woke up and took a two hour walk on the beach every morning to capture the sunrise. I had the beach all to myself!!! This vacation and Jorge's hospitality spoiled us - we had the perfect private experience that created the most meaningful family memories. We were very blessed to be able to celebrate Christmas and New Year here. This was a truly magical experience, mostly due to Jorge's generosity with his time and resources. We hope to be welcomed back!

Just as wonderful second time around!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have enjoyed a week in paradise @ this location. The condo is fantastic, and Jorge has it stocked with everything you need to make your stay fabulous! He contacted us multiple times to make sure everything was going smoothly for us, and that we had no questions or issues. We enjoyed several breakfasts, lunches and dinners on the patio, watching the ocean and beautiful beach scenes. Parking is great. The pool and lounge are are right next to the condo--and you can see it all from the patio, which is very convenient when signaling to your spouse to bring you a refill of an ice cold beverage from the fridge so that you don't have to move from your comfy lounge chair in the sun :)

We loved the fact that there are not a lot of tourists around--and you may only see a few local fishermen on a long walk on the beautiful beach. I've been to dozens of beaches around the world--and this is my favorite. The sand is AWESOME!

We took day trips to the rain forest, waterfall, zip-lining, and night-kayaking into the BioBay. We spent a day in San Juan, and traveled down to Ponce, too.

We had a great time, AGAIN, and will return many more times! Thanks, Jorge, for everything. You are a superb host!

Awesome vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO experience and the bar has been set very high.

The Condo: The Condo was gorgeous. The photos listed on the site are completely true. The view from the balcony and one of the bedrooms overlook the pool and the beach. The condo is stocked with everything you can imagine that you'd need for a beach vacation, including incidentals like aloe in the fridge and paddles and a ball to play on the beach or in the pool. The condo lends itself to an easy vacation, with free parking right under the elevator to the door of the condo. Rio Grande is central to all the activities, including San Juan, El Yunke, Fajardo, Culebra and others.

The Owner: There are so many places to choose when coming to PR. We chose this one because of the attentiveness of the owner. While making our decisions, he answered questions about the area, rental cars, even flights. Upon arrival, he called to ensure that we arrived safely and that we knew how to get to the condo and when we reached the condo, the fridge, freezer and pantry were stocked (we have an allergy and he was aware and worked with that, too). He called during the vacation to ensure that we were having fun and to make sure that we don't need anything. Very attentive and kind owners. We never met him, but maybe we will on our next visit.

Activities: We are an active family and took advantage of activities. We went to Old San Juan (try to eat near the fort and not the cruises if you want more "authentic" food). We lucked out as it was President's Day weekend and everything was free. We climbed El Yunke which was fun, but didn't see any animals, just trees and waterfalls. Very beautiful, but after a while, the same ol'. Ziplining at Toro Verde was incredible. Not close as it's in the middle of the country, but well worth it. Our tour guide, Jerry, was amazing and explained how the country people lived. Loved it. Bio Bay kayaking and snorkeling with the sea turtles at Culebra were amazing, too. The weather was ok (rained every day, but not too much), but when it's in the 80s, one cannot complain.

Recommendation: We would definitely come back. The condo was amazing. The owner was incredible and the people of PR were so nice. Great trip. Thank you!
