Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Karl and Vivi (Karivi) were living in a fabulous ocean front Condo in Isla Verde in Carolina, Puerto Rico, beside the Ritz Carlton Hotel, when an unexpected opportunity arrived, to buy this countryside property at the foothills of El Yunque National Forest. We bought this land at the end of 2004 because of it’s location: breathtaking panoramic ocean mountain view, refreshing breezes, surrounded by peaceful nature! Here we planned to retire, so we designed our dream house and had it custom built between 2005 and 2007. Now we are living here permanently and enjoy our retirement to the fullest. Karl is a retired German Engineer and Entrepreneur, moving to this beautiful island of Puerto Rico in 1977 from Stockholm, Sweden were I lived since 1969. In 1969 I received a job opportunity to relocate from Munich to Stockholm. Even though I enjoyed the life in Sweden very much, I always longed for more sunshine and warmth, so the move to the tropical island of Puerto Rico became my final dream destination! Vivi is a retired University Professor from the University of Puerto Rico, where she taught Humanities and also was Chief Editor of the complete works of Eugenio Maria de Hostos, a Puerto Rican Philosopher. In her retirement, Vivi loves to be creative and work with art and gardening.
Why the Owner Chose Guzmán Abajo, Río Grande, Puerto Rico:
Due to it's unique location in the peaceful country side and the breathtaking panoramic Atlantic Ocean and El Yunque National Forest mountain view. Another factor of importance was the easy access by car to San Juan, Int'l Airport, Luquillo Beach and Fajardo with it's great water-sports possibilities and economic Ferry Connections to the Islands of Culebra and Vieques.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The breathtaking panoramic mountain & ocean view, the refreshing breezes from the Trade Winds, the pool with it's large sun deck and a stroll in the garden under shade trees represent our little part of tropical paradise!!!
