Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay, beautiful home, beautiful grounds and lots of beach. A perfect place to stay and I really enjoyed the kitchen , everything I needed for fixing meals . Loved the sound of the frogs at night. This location was perfect for all our sight seeing trips.

Beach Walkers Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I love beach walking. We've walked on beaches around the world. Some are too mushy, some are too hard, some are too short, some are too crowded, some feel dangerous, and some are messy. The beach associated with this clean and spacious property is our favorite walking beach of all. If you're a beach walker, this beach is not to be missed. Our hosts totally respected our privacy yet responded quickly to questions.

This property keeps its promises.

Perfect Stay in Rio Mar

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this beautiful villa in Rio Mar Village - a great area within the Rio Mar Resort. The villa is spacious, beautifully furnished, clean, and everything was in perfect working order. It was like staying in a home rather than a rental villa. The kitchen is large and well equipped and the bedrooms large and comfortable. We had breakfast on the large terrace every morning enjoying the view of El Yunque. The beach and pools are beautiful but whatever we did each day we looked forward to returning to the villa. The resort is beautiful and well maintained and the golf cart was very useful in exploring and getting around the resort. We have rented many vacation properties over the years but this is easily the nicest we have had the pleasure of visiting. We have been coming to Puerto Rico for several years and have always stayed in the Isla Verde and Condado areas, but we can't wait to return to Graciela and Raul's beautiful villa. Graciela and Raul could not be any nicer to work with.

Spacious, Safe and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Raul and Graciela,

I don't know where to begin - we absolutely loved staying at your wonderful home and next time we'll be there for much more than just a few days. When you read the reviews on this site you'd think these must be family members - there's no way that this place can be this good! Believe the reviews - this place was awesome! This was the first time we used VRBO for our vacation and the last time we will ever visit a hotel. The resort is perfectly located between the mountains of El Yunque and the gorgeous sand and sun of Fortuna beach. When we walked into your unit our breath was taken away. The first thing we noticed were the beautiful windows and the cross breezes. In Puerto Rico you would think constant air conditioning would be a necessity, it wasn't. In fact we only turned on the AC at night because the coquis were a little too loud. The rooms were spacious and beds were amazing. Graciela you have impeccable taste, the decor was elegantly simple and fit the gorgeous beauty of the surroundings. We were also impressed with your hospitality and your helpful suggestions. Thank you for making this trip such a memorable experience for our family. (For those reading the reviews here are your can't miss experiences: Seeing the sunrise on the beach, Racing around in Raul's golf cart, Visiting the Luquillo Kiosks for dinner, Ziplining right across from the resort, El Yunque (no need to walk; drive up to see Coca Falls and the Yokahu Tower), Lounging by the pool with a tropical drink, Sliding down the pool slide after you've had a few too many tropical drinks, and finally taking the bio-bay tour in pitch black darkness. There are so many can't miss experiences that we hope to be back soon. Thank you Raul and Graciela.

Fantastic Vacation Place

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this villa. It is very spacious and perfect for our family (myself and my husband, our 20 yr old daughter and her friend). Both bedrooms were huge and had plenty of closet space. The kitchen was well equipped and the dining table was large and well-suited to our card games. The view of the mountains was beautiful and the patio large and peaceful. We enjoyed taking the golf cart to the resort pool and beach. We used the chairs and table at the resort beach and found the water and waves to be perfect for body surfing. The drives to Luquillo and to Old San Juan weren't too far. We had dessert at one of the resort restaurants, which was good. Richie's up the mountain provided an amazing view for lunch; the pineapple rice and burgers were very good. We had a delicious dinner of authentic local food at El Rincon del Sabor- we highly recommend it! The owners were very responsive to our questions. We loved the villa and the setting and would highly recommend it. Hopefully, we will have the opportunity to return someday.

WOW...WOW...WOW! I highly recommend this villa. My husband and I had a very relaxing time. The villa is absolutely gorgeous and Graciella and Raul helped with our every need. Which by the way was not much because we had everything we needed. The view from this villa is amazing and location is perfect. If you want a little action take the golf cart and go to the hotel. Theres a nice lounge and casino. The Residence pool was our favorite since you had the beach righg next to it. We will definately be back. Thank you Graciella and Raul. We miss the place already.
