About the Property
Stunning Rio Mar 3 bedroom/2 bath Villa with 2 terraces on the Ocean golf course
Impeccably restored to its original grandeur, Villa Padilla Trice, situated on the grounds of the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa, represents the best that Rio Mar has to offer. Overlooking the championship Ocean golf course, the villa possesses all of the hallmarks of the original Rio Mar aesthetic that has made Rio Mar a favorite destination for decades. Handmade Spanish tiles, terra cotta flooring and gorgeous variegated wood framing throughout lend to the villa's warm, authentic Mediterranean feeling, while recent updates add modern design touches the discerning guest will appreciate.
Appointed throughout with a minimalist mix of classic Modernist and traditional Spanish style furniture and a wide variety of local Puerto Rican art, the villa provides a casually elegant backdrop for the perfect Caribbean vacation. The villa's two terraces provide the opportunity to dine al fresco or luxuriate on the upstairs terrace and enjoy a bottle of wine while listening to the waves crash on the nearby beach.
It is truly a place to experience the natural beauty of Puerto Rico while maintaining a superior level of comfort. Extensive cross-ventilation throughout the villa brings the outdoors in and allows guests to enjoy Puerto Rico's cool, gentle tropical breezes without stepping away from the villa. Once you arrive, you may even find it hard to leave and experience the endless beaches, pools, golf courses, tennis courts, casino and restaurants withinin the resort , or El Yunque Rainforest directly outside of the resort.
In the spirit of stripping down to the bare essentials of casual elegance, high speed internet is made available for those who need to stay connected and a Boese stereo system will suit all your music needs, but guests will also notice the conspicuous absence of televisions and air conditioning in the villa, distractions that get in the way of experiencing the natural beauty that surrounds the villa. Every room is cooled by fans that circulate the fresh air moving through the villa. During your stay, you will awake to the sun rising over the ocean, breathe and be bathed by the fresh ocean air, and will be lulled to sleep to the gentle melodies of the coquís singing at night. It is truly a place to get away, relax and recharge.
Villa Padilla Trice is part of the The Collection at Rio Mar.

The villa is located in Cluster 2 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: 2013
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 Mar Cluster 2, Río Grande, Puerto Rico:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We chose our particular villa after looking at approximately 15 different properties within Clusters 1 and 2, the first and most unique and authentic developments, within Rio Mar. Upon walking into this villa we knew it was precisely the one we wanted. It had great bones and gorgeous hand-crafted wood framing throughout giving it a warm and unique character that luxury developments built in recent years simply lack. It is spacious, has excellent views, light and airflow, and is one of the only villas within the entire community with 2 expansive terraces from which to enjoy the golf course, the extensive bird habitat and the sound of the waves crashing on the beach nearby. The villa has all of its original Spanish tile work and looks and feels like a special get away that would never be built today.
