About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

One of a kind beachfront apartment, located in a modern, recently completed 52 unit boutique complex. This property offers a peacefull, private experience, with miles of secluded and exquisite shorelines and golf course just steps away from your door and 30 mins from airport.

Ample, beautifully decorated (West Elm furniture), 1664 sqft duplex unit with a generous balcony that will make you feel embracing the shoreline and savoring the nights. Ocean views are striking as you open the door to the main living areas, located on the third floor of the building, while the bedrooms remain in the second floor, providing for privacy but maintaining a sense of connection to the beach.

Bedrooms facilities are fully air conditioned and include: master suite with king bed, a cozy chaise lounge, flat screen tv with dvd player and views to the ocean, a den adjacent to the master room with a convertible double twin bed, full private master bathroom with whirpool, separate shower cabin and double sinks. Second bedroom with two twin beds and full private bathroom. Laundry facilities are provided at this level.

Living areas are also air conditioned and include fully equiped european kitchen with granite tops and space for 4 stools, dining area with table for 6. A white leather chaise lounge and sofa awaits to comfort yourself in the ample living room which opens to the balcony and offers spectacular ocean views. Equiped with 46' flat screen tv and Bose stereo system with cd, dvd player,(ipod ready). The balcony is expansive, seats 4 to 6 persons in lounge chairs and is equiped with Weber gas grill.

If you are looking for adventure and sightseeing, there are infinite alternatives: from water sports to horseback riding, El Yunque Rain Forest and Old San Juan, boat or airplane travel options to 'the Islands of Puerto Rico (Vieques and Culebra), the biolouminiscent bay at Fajardo,etc. All these and more can be easily arranged since you will be staying in one of the most important tourists regions of PR.

And if you want some fine dining, there are also many options, since Grand Bay Beach is located adjacent to the caribbean's most recent and luxurious resort: Bahia Beach, host to the new 5 stars St. Regis Hotel, truly an architectural jewel ! Additional nearby resorts include The Rio Mar Wyndham, Coco Beach Resort and El Conquistador, where you can chosse from fine dining, casinos, golf, etc.

But surely the most heartwarming experieces at Grand Bay will remain the most simple; the enjoyment of the soothing breezes, the sounds of the ocean, the strolls along the beach, sun bathing, the birds hovering in the sky, the moonlight reflection on the ocean, the bright stars shining in the night,.......

because here, NATURE takes precedence..!

About Edgardo Perez

I have been an architect for 25 years and had the oportunity to work on several tourist oriented projects in PR and have visited most of the existing properties similar to Grand Bay. What I found unique about Grand Bay is the unspoiled character of its setting, the privacy it offers,the layouts and finishes of the apartments, the resort like design of the gazebo and pool areas, and the fact that I can walk to the beach and /or drive to the nearby golf courses. There is not another comparable property in Puerto Rico where you can do that.

Edgardo Perez purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Edgardo Perez chose Rio Grande

My wife and I had the dream of investing in an area of extreme natural beauty, adjacent to the beach and golf course. We have always enjoyed the beach and wanted a property like this. The access is so convenient. Recently completed Route 66 expressway takes you directly from the airport to PR187, a beautiful tree canopied roadway which leads to Grand Bay. Also the fact that we are neighbors to the most striking and recent resort in the caribbean(Bahia Beach) made us feel confident of our investment. Now we are sure of our good decision.

What makes this apartment unique

Spectacular, we really have enjoyed every minute spent in our beach apartment. We enjoy the privacy, the uniqueness of the natural context, the beautifull beach, the strolls along the shoreline, the nights in our balcony with the ocean breeze and the shinning stars foreshadowing a beautifull tomorrow. Each time we come it feels like a small vacation. The apartment feels extremely cozy, ample and user friendly. If I feel like playing golf, there are five courses to choose from within 25 min drive, afterwards, a swim into the beach makes me feel like the perfect day.

Anniversary get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

The property was spectacular, and it was everything as advertised.

We were looking for a quiet retreat ,and we found this ,and more in this two story hideaway.

I hate to say it was too great ,for fear of it being booked up the next time we decide to rent.

If you're looking for solitude, and peace and quiet as we were ,then this is the property.

Idyllic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a wonderful time at Edgardo's beautiful condo in PR. The condo was extremely well furnished with anything we could possibly need and in a stunning location. Communications were a breeze and Edgardo was very responsive to our questions. We definitely recommend Edgardo's home and hope to be back often.

Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We’re sitting here on the balcony the day before we go home after a wonderful one-month stay at Edgardo and Marga’s beautiful condo. Like everyday we’ve been here, the sun rises and casts its light on the palm trees and ocean, giving mesmerizing beauty. You will not be disappointed in choosing this location. The pictures posted tell the truth; 50-feet from the ocean, tastefully decorated rooms, and a safe surrounding for your family. The condo was very well supplied. Just bring your swimsuit and toothbrush and you’re good to go. Each day we walked the beach, collecting sand dollars, starfishes and other unusual shells that washed up on the beach daily. During the day we visited some remarkable national treasurers like the El Yunque National Rainforest, Old San Juan and its 16th-century forts, the Bacardi Rum tour, the bio-luminescent tour on kayaks, Luquillo and Seven Seas beaches, and our favorite, the Fajardo lighthouse within the Las Cabezas de San Juan Reserve during its daylight tour and the special evening one. Our favorite food spots were many. Mojitos Restaurant in Old San Juan, #2 La Parrilla and #37 Ceviche Hut at the “Kiosks”, Lluvia Deli Bar in Palmer, El Varadero Seaside Grill and La Estacion in Fajardo, El Verde in Rio Grande, and shopping for local artesian fare was just great. Be sure to go to Coqui International in Palmer, and visit Puerto Ricans Arts and Crafts store on Calle de la Fortaleza in Old San Juan. Be sure to take home a symbol of Puerto Rico’s Christmas belief with a Three Kings artwork, and a Vigilante Mask. A couple times during the month, our adult children and young grandchildren visited from the states, and they loved the condo, the beach, the pool and the entire Puerto Rican island for what it has to offer all ages. Oh yes, if you need a grocery store, go to Ralph’s; it’s 5 minutes away. Thank you Edgardo and Marga for providing us our home, away from home. We’ll be back again!

Beautiful condo and wonderful beach.

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet beach that is away from the crowds, but a spot that is a quick drive to Fajardo, San Juan, El Junque and Luquillo.... This condo is perfect! We stayed for 11 days with our 2 teenage boys and we loved it. The condo is immaculate, wonderfully stocked. The kitchen is better equipped than mine at home. We enjoyed the balcony for early mornings, lunch and evenings. Easy access to a day in Old San Juan or a snorkeling adventure out of Fajardo. The condo is very quiet and many days we were alone on the beach or joined by one or two other families. Edgardo was VERY responsive during our stay. We would return.

A Little Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time that we have rented through VRBO. Edgardo was extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating throughout the entire process. He checked in with us during our stay and even brought a birthday cake since we were celebrating two birthdays while there!

Upon arrival you walk down a corridor with a lush forest view before entering the condo which has spectacular ocean views. The condo is somehow even better than the pictures which seems impossible but true! It is beautiful, comfortable and well stocked. The kitchen has a generous supply of cookware, utensils, appliances and many options of dishware, glassware and serving pieces…anything you could possibly need. The beds are comfortable, linens and towels are of top quality and literally everything is well kept. Edgardo and Margamarie have managed to think of everything, including providing a sense of connection to the outdoors through the décor and placement of furnishings.

The grounds and pool are well maintained. The beach is quiet, private and clean. We walked it every day and saw very few people yet felt very safe. Some days waves washed in sand dollars, some days coral and other days tiny pink shells.

This area is perfect for anyone who is looking to stay away from the crowds and still be within a reasonable distance to explore. This particular rental property is everything that they have described it as on their listing. I was traveling with my husband, 14 year old daughter and my mom and we all agree that we made the right choice in renting this property. The only thing that we wished for was to stay longer than our nine days!

A few of our highlights:

El Yunque Rainforest, bioluminescent bay kayak tour and also charted a boat for a day of snorkeling/beaching- both through Pure Adventure (highly recommend this company), Old San Juan, Luquillo food kiosks, relaxing at the pool, walks on the beach

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

I usually expect a little less than what I see in photos, figuring some wide angle lens and optimal conditions, but this place exceeded my expectations. Well appointed is a very accurate description. Eduardo's condo was clean, comfortable, modern, and contained everything we needed for a great weeks vacation. The kitchen was stocked with beautiful dishes and gourmet cookware. My dreams were answered as I wanted to hear the ocean waves from the bedroom. The place is also within walking distance to first class restaurants and golf and convenient to the rainforest, airport, San Juan, the bio bay tours, the casino and fine restaurants (Palio) at the Windham resort complex. We walked the beach every morning and rarely saw anyone! The water was clear and warmer than our New England summer beaches. The condo pool was very clean. Many many thanks to our hosts!
