This recently renovated, beautiful villa sits within the coveted Cluster II enclave and looks out over the Wyndham Rio Mar golf course and ocean. The villa is appointed with high end furnishings and finishings.
Chic Poolside Mediterranean Villa With Gorgeous Ocean And El Yunque Views
We first encountered this villa, situated on the grounds of the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa, the summer of 2013 after we purchased our first villa in Cluster II. Every day we would spend time at the Cluster's private pool, and look up at a beautiful villa overlooking the pool. It was perfect and had everything you would ever want--a gorgeous view, excellent light, and an expansive terrace. But it had no life; it was always closed. We joked that we should buy it--if only to breathe new life into it. That joke soon became reality. We found the owners, and shortly thereafter we owned this unique property. What followed was an intensive restoration phase. No surface was left untouched; the original, authentic Mediterranean design was lovingly preserved and we updated all appliances and systems to modern standards that discerning guests expect. We absolutely love spending time in this gorgeous villa and look forward to sharing this unique property with others.
Villa Fortuna is a perfect getaway destination for uncompromising families who require both proximity to amenities for family or friends as well as a chic environment for the adults. We're also a great solution for two couples traveling together who appreciate a fun yet refined vacation experience.
We have meticulously restored this villa in the Mediterranean style and original spirit of Rio Mar and its architecture. To that end, Villa Fortuna is truly a place to disconnect from the daily grind and reconnect with nature and the vibrant natural scene of Puerto Rico. All rooms have a commanding ocean view and look out over the community's private pool and the Rio Mar Ocean Golf Course. Guests will notice that the villa is cooled by the natural trade winds that bless the island as well as ceiling fans in every room. For guests who need to stay connected, high speed internet is available, as is a Bose stereo system and a 50 inch flat screen TV.
Guests will enjoy access to all that the Rio Mar resort has to offer including its two award winning golf courses and tennis center, country club, casino, spa, restaurants and bars. You will also have access to the Cluster II pool and spa that the villa overlooks; this pool is reserved for the exclusive use of Cluster II residents and our guests. You will also have access to the Rio Mar Residents' Beach Club, which also has a large pool and chaise lounges on the beach and poolside.
Up until your arrival, we are happy to work with you directly to answer any questions you have or to help plan any excursions for your vacation.
Upon booking, we will put you in touch with our house manager so you can make arrangements to meet upon your arrival, get the keys, and a tour of the property. She will also be available to you during your stay to address any issues should they come up.
We will also provide you with contact info with our concierge who can work with you in advance or during your stay to arrange excursions, reservations, grocery delivery, or even a private chef.
Finally, we will also provide you with a comprehensive, up-to-date list of our favorite places--from fine dining to beach shacks with great fish tacos, and all of the other info you will need to ensure you have a great stay.
We are happy to accommodate early check-ins and late check-outs as long as we do not have any other conflicting arrivals or departures.
1. Kick back and relax. It’s your vacation!
2. Please treat the place as you would treat your own home.
3. Please keep noise to a minimum, especially at night.
4. When you leave the villa, please close the terrace doors. This is the tropics, and brief but very strong storms can pass through and drench the villa in a matter of seconds with intense, horizontal rain. If a storm passes through while you are in the villa and the doors are open and any of the furniture happens to get wet, please just wipe it down and disperse any puddles of water that may have accumulated.
5. Turn the lights, fans and any appliances off whenever not in use. Electricity is very expensive in Puerto Rico.
6. Do not place any wooden knives or plastic cups in the dishwasher.
7. Smoking is allowed outside only.
8. Pets are NOT allowed.
9. Except for the blue and white striped beach towels, we do not permit towels or linens to be taken from the units.
Elliott and Rodrigo are professionals working in digital product development and beauty. We live, work and play between New York City, Atlanta, GA and Rio Mar, Puerto Rico.
A native of Puerto Rico, Rodrigo spent his teenage years at Rio Mar, PR and dreamed of owning a property here while growing up. Living in New York City crystallized the need to have a retreat to relax and recharge. Elliott soon fell in love with Rio Mar as well, and so a few years ago, we purchased our first villa and didn't stop. Our business, The Collection at Rio Mar, has restored 3 unique villas within the coveted Cluster II of Rio Mar, and we make them available to discerning guests who are looking for a taste of Puerto Rico at its finest.
About Rio Mar
Historically the second home community of Puerto Rican families, Rio Mar has always been known across the island as an exclusive retreat for Puerto Rican professionals that resorts built later have tried to replicate. The architecture of the villas across the property conforms to the rolling shape of the hills, making each villa unique and the grounds feel organic.
