                    Truly paradise! We loved this little spot of heaven in the tropics. First of all we were perched on the top floor with views of the ocean & beach you can't believe until you see it. We had all the comforts of home with a comfy, large living area, big dining table and well equipped kitchen. Loved hanging out on the beach and bobbing in the waves. A couple of days we snorkeled over at Steps beach and it was thriving with fish. Got some great underwater pictures. We took a day trip over to the waterfall in Sebastian and that was beautiful mixed with some adventure. " Paradise on Sandy Beach" is a very convenient location. You can walk to some great bars and restaurants and they rent boards in the parking lot next door. Also the people were very friendly. Overall, one of the best spots I've found to relax and have some fun.

                    Manager response: Love to see your fish video. I'll post it to my website. Glad you found all those great spots!

                    We rented the third floor of this lovely villa on Sandy beach hoping for a quiet vacation enjoying the beach. The villa and the beach are wonderful. Very well maintained with everything you need for a enjoyable stay. And the local restaurants are great. However, no one warned us about the noise. If you are looking for a rental with central access to Rincon's nightlife, this is the place. If you like peace and being able to get to sleep before 3:00am on weekends, you might want to look elsewhere. The parking lot for the beach access is on the master bedroom side of the villa and the pasture across the street is opened for bar overflow parking. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, Tamboo's live music starts around 9:00pm and the competing car stereos, sirens, car alarms and drunks last until 3:00am. Unfortunately, the revelers also leave behind a lot of trash. We were told this was unusual, but experienced it both weekends of our stay. On the positive side, a great place to stay. Very comfortable. Great views. Really liked the roof patio. Great beach. Good food. Nice surfing. Board rental are right next door in the parking lot. And the beach is nearly deserted until about 9:00am each day.

                    My family and I stayed here for one week. With seven of us, which included one toddler, we were comfortable and enjoyed every moment. The views are beautiful, the amenities make everything homey, and the stay was PERFECT. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

                    Manager response: Thanks! We just returned from a week stay to spruce things up and make sure everything is in the condition we want for our guests. Glad you love it as much as we do. I was also very impressed with the number of good restaurants in the area. We love to cook at home and had a hard time taking everything in that we wanted to experience. Now back to reality in Madison, WI...

                    Paradise at Sandy Beach is amazing. Today is our last full day here at Paradise and for the first time ever we do not want to go home. We have traveled all over the world, but have found here beauty, peace, an ability to relax, gorgeous beaches, delicious food, wonderful surfing and amazing instructors. The home is warm and comfortable with three bedrooms plenty of room for family and friends. The view is stunning and the constant sound of the waves breaking intoxicating. You are within walking distance to the famous or infamous Tamboo Tavern and a wonderful breakfast just steps the other way on the beach. Both my husband and I do not want to leave, though Melinda the owner and Gladys, the care taker are kind and generous I think they may insist . . . however we have already confirmed a retun visit for January and are considering a early spring visit as well. Thank you Melinda!

                    This home is lovely and very comfy. But be sure you know that Rincon is a surfer's paradise because of the big waves! This ocean is not for swimming , it is lovely to looks at with great wind but to swim you need to go elsewhere. For me, this was not an issue but if someone comes along that REALLY wants to swim, you need to just ask around. There are local places to go swim. I like to party but we traveled with a couple that were readers and into the internet connection. Which is good! but hey, you can get THAT at home! This place is FUN! Not for a quiet retreat. We went to all the Trip Advisor top 10 places to eat and had a blast. Try to plan yr trip around a full moon and have cocktails on the roof terrace of this property waiting for it to rise. Awesome views! On the full moon evening, we did this then went to a roof top dinner by moon light to Ode to an Elephant. Excellent and you can look down and see this building and your beach!

                    Manager response: Thanks for sharing your experiences. Just a note that the ocean is constantly changing and this guest only experienced it for a 3 day stay. The beach is really known for swimming, however, when the waves are big, it is not recommended. The waves range from totally flat and calm to 10 feet or more. My husband usually swims every day when we visit although he likes the waves. I'm more of a calm water swimmer and I'd say I get in at least 50% of the days, so it's just the luck of the draw. As for the parking lot, that can occur on weekends, but not every night by any means. Best to shut the windows and turn on the A/C to mask any noise. If you are a light sleeper, you may want to try ear plugs. The good thing is many of those top 10 places in Rincon are within walking distance to our place. Dining on our rooftop is even more amazing during a full moon, I might add.

                    I found the reviews very helpful, so I decided I should help others with one of my own. A few pieces of information: there were 7 in our group (5 females and 2 males; ages 19 to 39) and we stayed for 4 nights from May 1 to May 5, 2013. Melinda and Ryan were both wonderful throughout the whole booking process and answered every question I had promptly and nicely. Gladys, our local contact for our stay, was also very nice in dealing with us. She was very accommodating with our arrival and placed the key to the condo in a lockbox for us to open when we arrived. After we ate dinner we called her and she came out promptly; she showed us around the condo and gave us directions to quite a few places to go. After looking at the pictures online, I really wanted to stay here. The best part is that the pictures do not do it justice! We were all instantly dreaming of living here! There are always a few bumps in the road when dealing with “island life.” Unbeknownst to us we were using the reserve water. As is common, Rincon can sometimes run out of water for whatever reason. This happened around lunchtime and our reserve tank was not refilled until that evening around 8:00pm or so. I had to mention this, but let me say it was a minor inconvenience! The condo is a place you dream about. The beds were all comfortable, the seating in the living room worked great for our group, and the kitchen had all the necessities for what we needed. The condo was in great condition and was very clean throughout. There was internet, but it was not a very strong signal; there was no connection when we were up on the rooftop deck. Walking right down the beach to a couple different restaurants was a plus! The Tamboo restaurant is three doors down with great food and great music. They played their music fairly late on many nights, but this did not bother us as we were up late enjoying it on our balcony. As we did all of our “sightseeing” in the San Juan area, we spent almost all of our time in Rincon on the beach. We went and did a little snorkeling at Steps Beach, ate at a few restaurants in town, and went shopping at the local store in town, but the rest of the time we just enjoyed the beauty right at our condo. Bottom line: would I recommend this condo or stay there again? Absolutely!! Everything was perfect for our group and I hope to get a large enough group together next year so we can stay there again! Thanks to all of you for a wonderful stay!

                    Manager response: Thanks for the helpful comments. Sometimes you don't realize when the water goes out because we have a reserve tank to get you through. In those situations you have to be a little conservative and not do laundry or take long showers. If you are not careful, the water can run out and then the water truck has to come and fill the tank. Luckily it doesn't happen too often and when it does we have an extra large reserve tank. That's life on the islands! Please come back soon!

                    This place is truly paradise! The photos are beautiful, but they simply can't do it justice. The location is phenomenal...right on the beach. The property was clean and well-maintained, and the property manager Gladys was amazing. When we were faced with an entire day to kill before a late-night flight after checking out of the villa that morning, Gladys even volunteered to look after our luggage at her own house while we journeyed around the island for the day. Phenomenal customer service! We had a spectacular time and highly recommend this property to anyone interested!

                    This property is amazing and can’t be beat. I’ve stayed here with a group of friends on three separate occasions and we all loved it here. The location is amazing (right on the beach) with great surf spots just in front of the condo. The condo is spacious and clean with amazing views and a spectacular rooftop. You are steps away from the best beach bars and a short walk away from great restaurants and yoga. The owners and property management personnel are beyond friendly, easy to work with and accommodating. I can’t say enough good things about this property and can’t wait to book my next trip back to paradise!

                    We had such a great trip to Rincon. Staying at the condo on Sandy Beach was a treat. We woke to the awesome sound of the ocean. Surfers were out early, and fun to watch. A guy renting beach chairs and teaching surfing was right next door. There was a nice bar two doors down, and the best gift shops we found in Rincon were within walking distance from the condo. Location was incredible. If this weren't enough, the condo itself was beautiful, and had everything we needed! We were able to cook some of our own meals, and settle down with some tv when we wanted. The condo was spacious, and clean, and nicely appointed. The view from the veranda could not be beat. This place had me dreaming of all the different groups of people I would want to be there with (girls trip, come with another family and the kids). The condo was everything it was advertised to be. I would definitely recommend it!

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About: We live in Madison Wisconsin but try to get to Rincon as much as possible. Friends have come to stay and bought property here. Come discover the magic.

                  Why Rincon:
                  We've always dreamed of living on the ocean. In 2002 we stayed at a friend's condo on another Rincon beach for spring break. We walked by our property on this beach that was just constructed and fell in love with it. There were no high rise hotels or condo's on the beach and there were plenty of great restaurants and things to do in the area. Our daughters love the beach and it attracts all ages. Lots to do for young adults and parents. The people here are very friendly. Puerto Rico is exotic but is a territory of the US so no passport is required, money is the same and the real estate laws are very similar. I'm a realtor and can work well from my Puerto Rico 'home office' because we are well connected with cell phone reception and internet service.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  You can walk to several great restaurants and bars so it's nice to have that convenience. The views are exceptional, I think the best in Rincon, so we hate to leave the place once we get there. We love to dine on the roof top terrace and watch the moon & stars. We're on a peninsula on the farthest western point of Puerto Rico so you have interesting panoramic views. We look out on the Aguadilla peninsula in the distance. The sunsets are amazing! We love to walk the beach, some of it stretches along DNR owned property with no homes, and find interesting sea glass and shells. Most of all we love to relax and just take in the sun and watch the waves stack up and roll in.
