Newly remodeled spacious garden apartment. Great for retreat with families and friends. Garden/patio allows for outdoor play and barbecue. Three bedrooms that comfortably sleeps 7. Complex includes pool, tennis courts, basketball court and gym. Activities for everyone - hiking at el Yunque Rainforest, Luquillo Beach, horse back riding, zip lining and go carts near by. Short drive to Wyndham Resort & Casino. Great local food and restaurants close by; and 35 minutes from airport.

The space
Everything is new as of January 2019!! From the bedroom sets, furniture and mattresses to linens and dishes! We remodeled the kitchen and baths, too. Since we moved to the mainland in 2013, we just haven't been able to enjoy it as much as we'd like to and felt it was time to start sharing with friends!

The Hillside Village complex is about a 40 minute drive from LMM airport on freeway roads. It is a quiet retreat, mostly renters and a few full-time residents.

This is a gated community, with strict access rules. Your names will be provided to guard with check-in/check-out dates; you will have to identify yourself with guard on shift for each entry to the complex (not required for exit). There is very little transit into the complex, so it's quick - guards do short rounds but are back within minutes.

There are 2 assigned parking spaces, please be sure to observe this rule - additional guest parking is available by common area and a short walk to the apartment.

Our spot has a great location for access to common areas, just a walk to the end of the sidewalk, and walk down stairs to common parking and amenities (pool, gym, tennis and basketball courts).

We are a garden apartment , so you will have go down a flight of stairs to first floor.

There are 5 brand new air conditioners in the apartment - you'll notice that if you open the front door and the sliding door there's great cross-ventilation and can go on fresh air. We kindly request you keep A/C use to minimum as best you can, electricity is ridiculously expensive on the island PLUS it's best for the environment ;).

There is no garbage pickup at the apartment, and if you leave garbage bags at the front door or patio, strays (our Puerto Rican resident 'satos') will make a mess and you will get gnats. The trash container is located next to the guardhouse. We just put trash bags in our trunk and take them to the trash bin before we leave each day.

Where you’ll be

Río Grande, Puerto Rico

There is something for everyone in Rio Grande - hiking, beach and adventure activities during the day; next to Wyndham resort for a little bit of Casino and night life and a one hour drive to Old San Juan if you want to see main historical area. Our island is only 100 by 35 miles, so you can easily take day trips to other parts of the island with great things to see - Old San Juan is a MUST (less than an hour); Ponce (about 2.5 hours); the west coast (Aguadilla, Mayaguez - about 3 hours).

The Rio Grande, Luquillo and Fajardo area is a foodie's paradise!! Great fresh seafood, local cuisine and goodies - from dives to 4-star (we prefer the delicious dives!), served by the friendliest folks you can encounter. Don't be surprised by invites to visit homes, seriously!!

My favorite day trips are to Vieques and Culebra islands off the east coast about 20-25 minute drive to ferry or Fajardo airport. I prefer the small plane ride (about 20 minutes) the view is FANTASTIC, and if you're lucky you can sit up front with the pilot and wear the headset. These pilots are pros, nothing to worry about! The ferry is about an hour/hour and half. You will find the BEST beaches in Vieques and Culebra - best if you do an overnight so you can experience the night life, too.
