About Arthur MacDonald

I am a retired FAA air traffic controller, have my own real estate business on the side, and love music, reading, dogs, and the beach, beach, beach!! I recently purchased this brand new Luxury Villa in Rio Mar as my retirement home, but own two other beachfront properties and a mountain retreat, so I rent them out to like-minded beach and coastal living lovers who enjoy the beach lifestyle. My properties are spic-and-span, and appointed just as your home would be - only the best is acceptable! My favorite phrase is: 'People don't care how much you know, they want to know how much you care!', and I apply that to all I do, so you can be sure all your vacation needs will be met, and I will take care of any situation that may arise to make sure your vacation experience is perfect!

Arthur MacDonald purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Arthur MacDonald chose Rio Grande

I've always loved A-frame type Chalets, they remind me of a place out in Switzerland, of a laid-back life, of exclusivity and fun. When I saw this Chalet, I had to have it! The privacy on two acres is a plus, you feel away from it all, and totally connected to the sounds, smells and sights of a tropical paradise!

What makes this chalet unique

What I love most of my Chalet is the porch! I can just hang out on the hammock, reading a book, enjoying the constant easterly winds that come at me from the valley...then a quick jump (or dive!) into our 8 foot deep pool, then dry out on the pool deck gawking at the incredible ocean views!!

Had a wonderful time here! Beautiful property, just secluded enough but could get to Fajardo and San Juan easily. Best tip of all - our own private swimming hole on the river. Mornings were peaceful, evenings were beautiful. Very comfortable, everything we needed was right there. Would love to go back again!

Beautiful, safe, clean, very comfortable. Not one complaint or negative thing Jeff and I can think of. Removing all the stress from our lives by staying in such a serine environment has renewed and rekindled the love and romance in our 20 year marriage. Thank you. Jeff and Chrystena Gorham
