Welcome to luxury! This tropical, beachfront villa is completely remodeled from top to bottom with high-end finishes. Nothing has gone untouched! The villa is located in the Grand Wyndham Rio Mar Resort on the northeastern side of Puerto Rico in the sunny Caribbean. This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, main level villa is surrounded by paradise. Look out any window and the ocean, with its long sandy beaches, is just steps from your private balcony.
Our beachside unit is located in the heart of the Wyndham Resort. It includes 3 pools ( lap pool, infinity pool, kids' pool) & a hot tub, two golf courses, 13 tennis courts, a fitness center, a casino, and a spa, along with numerous restaurants and bars. The pools are just a few feet from the balcony of the villa. In fact, you can sit on your balcony and watch your children from there!
As owner & award-winning Minneapolis home builder, I have completely renovated & redesigned the interior of the villa with modernized beachfront décor. Renovations include new floors, cabinets, light fixtures, countertops, fresh paint, and bath accessories. The kitchen is equipped with new appliances as well as kitchenware. New air conditioning units have been installed in each room. My vision was to connect the exterior beauty of this location with the interior environment of this villa. Password protected Wi-Fi is available during your stay. The space sleeps up to 10 people, with 4 new queen sized beds (2 in each room) and a new pull out couch.
Amenities in this area are abundant! There are many water sports right on the beach, such as jet-ski rentals, kayaking, surfing, snorkeling, and boogie boarding. The ocean water is warm all year round so it does not matter what season you vacation in. My children love collecting seashells along the beach and jumping into the ocean waves. My wife and I love to walk on the soft sand and watch the immaculate sun rising and setting each day. Walk east up the beach and as you round the corner a beautiful view of Rio Mameyes flowing from the mountains of El Yunque into the ocean awaits. This location is a screen saver view! The El Yunque Rainforest is a treasure and also one of the main reasons we love this area in Puerto Rico. It is just 10 minutes away. There you can swim or soak at the base of many waterfalls and take in the beautiful views of the ocean below. There are miles of hiking trails for kids, senior citizens, and experienced hikers. To enhance your adventure through the rain forest, stop at one of the many zip line adventure courses. Other nearby activities include: deep sea fishing, ferry boat and day trips to Vieques and Culebra Islands, bio bay tours, the local gallery and art center, and tours of Old San Juan.
Restaurants are abundant within the Wyndham Resort, all of which are within walking distance from the villas and offer a vast variety of cuisines. The Tiki Bar and Grill is within the resort and serves excellent food right on the beachfront. A couple of the pubs inside the complex serve delicious appetizers along with a wide variety of drinks. Sport lovers will appreciate the multiple TVs and lively atmosphere while watching games. Venture outside the Wyndham Resort and check out the many "mom and pop" restaurants within a 5 mile radius ranging from amazing fish and lobster at LaParilla, to sushi, barbeque and steak joints. My family and I love treating ourselves to breakfast at Board Riders in Luquillo, which is an excellent family environment. Venture 35 minutes into San Juan and you find all of the high end dining and night life you want. Walk the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan and visit as many shops as desired. There certainly are no shortages of dining and street vendors in this area.
While going out to eat is great, you can also stock your cupboards with fresh fruit and veggies from some of the local fruit stands in the area. Costco and Walmart are great stops for your bulk grocery needs.
When you book your stay, a Guest Letter will be provided that will give you more tips and suggestions to maximize your stay in Puerto Rico. This letter includes information on the airport, transportation, gas, costs of activities, directions, more on restaurants, etc. It is my goal to ensure your experience is one to remember!Get the full listing »
