About Jorge Cardona

My wife and I were born and raised in Puerto Rico. We currently live in Hato Rey. She is a Special Education Teacher and I am a manager at a private nonprofit agency where I have worked for more than 22 years.

Jorge Cardona purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jorge Cardona chose Rio Grande

We bought this Beach Condo to fulfill our long-held dream of eventually living full time right next to the beach.

What makes this condo unique

The property is conveniently located near a posh hotel (St. Regis Bahia Beach), several Golf Courses (St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort, Wyndham Rio Mar, Trump International, and Grand Melia) and relatively close to the El Yunque Tropical Rain Forest. You can relax watching the sea from the kitchen or the balcony, or look at the vegetation on the other side of the building.

Two story beach condo

  • 5 of 5

Jorge was a wonderful host and was very responsive to questions throughout the week. The unit was well stocked with EVERYTHING you could possibly need on vacation (condiments in frig, beach chairs/towels/games, laundry, games, coolers, etc.). The pool area was very nice with lounge chairs and well maintained. The beach is narrow and does have a glass issue (pieces of sharp glass - NOT smooth sea glass), so if you have little ones, be very careful. We liked that there are lots of trees so my husband could be in the shade all day and I could be in the sun. You can't walk to any stores or restaurants, but there are a huge variety of both within a 5-10 minute drive. We enjoy walking the beach and you can walk quite a distance in both directions. It takes about 20-25 minutes to get to the airport.

What you hope for

Jorge was the host that you are always hoping for when you use vrbo. The view was amazing. Quiet spot; condos were almost empty while we were there in Feb.

The condo was clean, comfortable & peaceful. The view from the balcony is amazing, what a wonderful sight to see every day. My wife and I enjoyed every moment we spent together while staying there. Jorge is great, and has a beautiful friendly family and it was my pleasure to meet them all.

Great beach condo

  • 5 of 5

Family of 4 (2 adults + 2 kids) stayed in this condo for 3 nights. We split our vacation between Rio Grande and San Juan. We picked this property based on proximity to El Yunque. We were greeted by Jorge, the owner, who made sure we had everything we needed and the condo is lovely. He also gave us some great restaurant recommendations. They have everything you need for the beach, which is great and we basically had the beach and pool to ourselves. The only complaint, which has nothing to do with the unit itself, is that we found a lot of glass on the beach every day.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at our unit. We are sorry that you found some glass on the beach. Our building's custodian has since been instructed by our Property Manager to regularly clean the beach area in front of our premises in order to prevent this situation from happening again.

Perfect Condo on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This location is perfect. You can visit San Juan and all of the other east island sites, but still be far away from the noise and congestion. The beach (and chairs. boogie board, etc.) are perfect for lounging after a full day of site-seeing. This condo is clean and fully stocked with everything needed. Jorge (the owner) was very attentive and hospitable. I would stay here again.

The furniture and appliances are all modern and comfortable and the AC in every room works well. We felt very at ease in the gated community.
