Rincon house description

Relax and feel the serenity that this breezy mountaintop private home has to offer. Located in the southern part of Rincon, this warm and inviting villa has a spectacular view for 360 degrees. To the east lies the continuation of the small lush tropical mountain range on which our villa resides, and to the west lies the Caribbean Sea, with Desecheo Island in clear visibility.

Stand on two levels of large balconies and verandas and take in the aroma of the clean mountain air while listening to the chirp of the Coqui frogs or the sound of rain hitting the banana tree leaves. Watch the sun rise over the mountains in the morning, relax in the sun on our open veranda during the day, watch the sun set over the ocean in the evening, and look up to see the most magnificent view of the night sky that Rincon has to offer.

The main floor of the house is spacious and breezy. Open the windows and let the trade winds gently sweep through. The ocean can be seen from the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Hi fi internet service and a 52" flatscreen tv in living room. Full bathroom and bedroom with queen bed are also located on this floor. Walk down the beautifully adorned stairs into the bottom floor where two bedroom suites, each with queen beds and their own daybeds (twin beds), reside. The queen beds are on an inlaid platform so that the guest can see the ocean while resting in bed through French doors. Full bathroom, with a view in shower, is also on this floor. Veranda is accessible from both bedrooms.

Our villa is a 5 minute drive to the beaches, restaurants, and bars, and is located in a safe neighborhood. Nearby airports and major cities are Aquadilla (30 minutes), Mayaguez (20 minutes) Ponce (1 hour) and San Juan(2 hours). The city of Mayaguez and all it has to offer is close by. Surfing and snorkeling beaches are a 10 minute drive away. Excellent cell phone reception.

                    After spending few days in the San Juan area, we decided to drive to Rincon. We had visited there last year and fell in love with the area. So much to do and great snorkeling and surfing. When we walked into this house, we were not expecting what we saw. We had rented a small condo on beach last time, and this was so large and spacious, and like everyone has mentioned in their review, it was beautiful! It was like a palace compared to the house we were in last year! The views of the mountains meeting the sea, from the verandas, were breathtaking. So glad we picked this spot. We really loved the house, we sat on veranda alot and at night enjoyed the great breeze that would blow out to sea. We also had nice breeze in the morning with our coffee. The owners were very helpful and great to deal with, as were the property manager and neighbors. The only thing I would change next time is the amount of days we'd stay. We might just skip San Juan all together!

                    Definitely a major WOW upon arrival. What a gorgeous place and spectacular view. The home is spotless and definitely high class. The property manager lives nearby and was quite helpful providing directions or recommendations. One major drawback only applies during the worst summer months in that only two bedrooms are air conditioned. The third bedroom stayed relatively cool but the day room on the second floor gets quite warm in the heat of the summer day even though the outside temps were in the upper 80s. The TV needs a DVD or BlueRay player as well. The mornings wakeup was worth the inconveniences though...so beautiful sitting on the veranda. Plenty of space with room to entertain if desired. The kitchen is also well equipped. The floors are all tile as well as the stairs which is absolutely beautiful but unforgiving if you are subject to falling. The Rincon area is wonderful where the mountains meet the sea. Excellent skin diving right off the beach and plenty of natural wonders all around.

                    Owner response: Thank you for your review! Sorry about the airconditioning, but its never been brought to my attention that we needed an additional one. Now that I know, I will definitely put another one in. As for the DVD player, there is one in the house but its been disconnected due to guest having difficulties with operating the remote controls and the remotes would end up deprogrammed. I am looking to replace it though with one less complicated.

                    This Mountain top villa has a never ending view of greenery of the land along with a magnificent view of the Sea beyond. The terrace can be enjoyed morning noon and night, weather it's just the two of you or a party of friends. Easy entertaining. The outside shower makes it a treat to cool off after spending time in the Rincon sunshine. There is also plenty of shaded terrace for relaxing as well. Rincon has a charm all it's own with great beaches, restaurants and beautiful scenery. There are 2 food markets which offer all u will need to keep the villa stocked with ur favorite treats. When eatining out be sure to try La Cambija, Calypso and El Fogon. They r casual fun places for drinks & delicious food. For a gourmet evenening out u must go to the Horned Dorset. The owners of this beautiful Villa are extremely nice people and will make sure ur stay is a pleasant one.The home's decor is another added feature which contributes to the feel of being in a 5 star accommodation. Go, enjoy and relax in this beautiful mountain villa. I'll come back again & again.

                    I was sick for quite a while,my doctor said I needed to relax and get away from everyday stress, I went on line and looked for just a perfect getaway. I got in touch with 4 of my girlfriends and began to plan my get away. This home was so warm and welcoming, clean, close to stores, the beaches 10 minutes away and some very fine resturantes . Just as described, the sunsets were amazing, I found myself wanting to be home when the sun went down, to enjoy them. Cell phones all worked which made all of us ladies quite happy. I am booking another trip in november, I would highly recommend this beautiful home in beautiful Rincon Puerto Rico as the perfect getaway.

                    When my husband and I booked this trip, we were a little hesitant because we had never been to Puerto Rico and didn't really know what to expect. Our little trepidation melted away instantly when we turned the key to this fabulous vacation rental. The staircase beckoned us with welcoming arms and we immediately felt the love and tender loving care that the owners of this house have poured into it. It is impeccably decorated and outfitted. The view from the veranda is spectacular and the outdoor shower is to die for. The owners gave us tips and pointers on transportation to and from the shore and guided to the best restaurants. This is definitely someplace we want to go back to.

                    About the house: Breathtaking. The pictures listed do not even do this house justice. One can see the ocean from almost every room in the house, even while laying in bed in the two downstairs bedrooms (the beds are on platforms with french doors leading to a veranda; one can see the ocean past the gigantic banana-tree leaves). The outdoor shower WITH HOT WATER allows you to rinse off from the beach as the sun sets; that itself is worth a million dollars to me. At night, the tradewinds blow across the top of the mountain and it becomes so cool and refreshing that we almost wanted sweatshirts. The veranda is also a perfect place to sunbathe during the day, 20 minutes is all you need for a golden tan.The grounds are well-kept and we were able to pick grapefruits off of a tree on the property for breakfast. Nightlife: we rented a car but did not want to drive around at night after going to dinner and bars (we are in our 20s) The house is about 15 minutes away from the main nightlife (Casa Verde, Tamboo) but the owners left a phone number for a driver that they trust. He ended up driving us every night for about 15$ each way for the group-- it took a lot of stress off of us and allowed us all to indulge in the fun nightlife. I give the house and the experience five stars and will be booking it again next year. The owners were very friendly and helpful, suggesting many places for us to go (tequila tuesday at Pancho Villa!). Rincon is a gem.

                    What can we say but outrageous...We have been all over the carribean and this was exceptional. The house is spacious, spotless,and the living areas are huge especially the outside veranda,it is quiet and has a outside shower,all have a millon dollar view. Rincon is safe and so much fun from the great food to the spectacular beaches some of the most beautiful we have ever seen. (Steps, Domes, Pools) So many to choose from. Plenty of travel information at the house to help you to get around Rincon. Make sure you book your next vacation here you will be in love this mountainside villa and Rincon. We sure are!

                    My boyfriend and I rented this house for almost a week in September, 2011. Wow. The house is beautiful and is decorated so nicely. We felt like we were "at home" in this house. We were amazed at how many people this house could accommodate: there is a master bedroom with a large bed and then downstairs there are two more large beds as well as two twin sized beds. There is a nice living room with comfortable couches and a TV, but most of the time that we were at the house was spent on the patio. The view is indescribable. The house is at the top of a mountain, so you can see all the way out to the ocean as well as down into the beautiful valley. The view honestly took my breath away. We felt very safe in this house, and it is nice and quiet. The drive to any of the beaches takes only a few minutes and is just down the mountain. We liked the beach at the marina the best and went there often. The bars were a lot of fun for us (we're in our 20's), and the restaurants were amazing. The town of Rincon is just so nice and welcoming and there is plenty of things to do. We really loved everything about this trip. I've recommended this house to my family members for an upcoming vacation. I cannot wait to go back!

                    When my girlfriends and I were planning our spring break trip we knew Rincon was the perfect place, and luckily we also chose the perfect place to stay! This house is so beautiful and the cleanest I have ever stayed in. The views from any angle are amazing, which are easily seen from the large deck that is perfect for eating, having drinks or just hanging out on. It has the perfect sunrise/sunset view, I've never seen anything like it. The inside of the house is beautifully decorated, there are even murals painted on some of the walls of sunsets/waves that really make the house feel special. It is just a short ride to any of the beaches from the house and I also felt very safe the entire time I was staying there. The owners are very nice and easy to work with and made sure everything was perfect when we got there. It has a beautiful kitchen and dining room but if cooking isn't your style there are great bars and restaurants a short ride away. We would definitely stay there again and are about to book our next trip soon. Wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else!

                    The house is just as beautiful as the pictures show and other reviews describe. The decor was comfy and gorgeous. We had our two small children traveling with us and I would come back here when the kids are older. Maybe kids 10+ would be good to bring here. The sunset was amazing from the house. We took advantage of the great weather and ate outdoors a lot (day & night). We were told a jacuzzi is coming soon and that will make the house even better, if that is even possible. The only "word to the wise" I have is the road up to the house. If you are not experienced with driving up and down the "mountain" roads of Puerto Rico then you may want to just call a cab and have a local drive you. There are parts in the road that are one lane, not bad with the exception of the barely there guard rails. We made it up and down the mountain daily, no problems, but we also had members of our group that have driven in similar conditons on the island. There was a book in the house with local restaurants, a cab service and other activities (surfing lessons, horse back riding etc.) listed. There was even a place that would deliver! That was a nice added touch to make our stay comfortable. We did have a leak in the downstairs bathroom, but with one phone call Maria had set a plumber for the next day (that is only because we told her not have someone come out that night). She called a few times to make sure our stay was enjoyable. I really appreciated that personal touch.
