Why Iris Irizarry chose Puerto Rico

I've know Rincon since I was a child and have always loved the laid back style of the place, the beautiful beaches and the ability to just get away from it all. Rincon is perfect for a peaceful beach holiday.

What makes this villa unique

We have always cared about the Seashell Villas and have made a huge effort to make sure the house is very well maintained and that we are always upgrading and improving the property.

Relaxation at your feet and a party down the street!!!

  • 5 of 5

I booked the downstairs villa for my 35th birthday! All I wanted was to relax. I work 3 jobs 7 days a week. Let me tell you..the villa beyond exceeded my expectations! I was on vacation with my father and my best friend who had family in Rincon. We arrived about 4 am and Iris' husband Elias met us full of energy as if it were the afternoon! He was wonderful ! He gave us a tour of the entire villa and property. Also making sure we had wifi and cable before leaving. Our days were spent on our very private, quiet beach which was maybe 25 steps from our balcony (keep in mind I have short legs, maybe 10 steps for you!) We had everything we needed to make us feel at home! We had family and friends over for lunch and we even had a fantastic surf and turf dinner from the bbq! The speakers below the tv connected to our phones with the aux cord we brought and we were able to connect to Pandora for music! We really enjoyed our stay! Everything was within a short drive away! MINUTES!!! The neighborhood was beautiful and the villa itself was clean and exactly as pictured! Super comfortable bed..and couch:) We will definitely be back!

We dined at Shipwreck for my birthday must try the Mofongo! Artwalk on Thursday in downtown Rincon was fantastic! And Eddie a bar tender at Villa Cofresi truly IS THE MAN! Enjoy the beautiful Seashell Mansion for me and beautiful Puerto Rico! I miss it everyday!

Wonderful Property - As Described

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property - very clean and well appointed. Kitchen had everything we needed. Most appreciated the local contacts who had the crib set up for our infant and obtained a mosquito net for it as well. They were very accommodating!

Our only disappointment was that due to weather patterns and high surf the beach was narrower than it has been in the past so walking and sitting on the beach were restricted and it was too rough to snorkel right in front of the property. All in all a relaxing place though.

Wonderful Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent 7 days at the Seashell Villa Mansion. It was perfect for my family. They enjoyed just staying around the backyard and the beach. The neighbor ,Francisco, provided us with many nights of fish.

They were many restaurants in the Rincon area. The beaches were very relaxing . Rincon is very "laid back".

The Seashell Villa was a good fit for the whole family operation.

One daughter teaches Spanish and the children are bilingual. This was perfect for her and family.

The staff was very responsive to our needs. They accomodated our requests promptly.

The Villa was exactly as presented on the Home Away Website.

The property was well maintained.

Since it is part of the USA, phone service, currency, logistics,etc were easy to navigate.

My other daughter knows enough Spanish to get by and get the local residents to suggest ( and go with them) to the Tuesday night, in Mayaguez, Salsa dancing.

Of course, the Grandparents were home with the grandchildren.

English is spoken everywhere.

Rincon was very similar to where we live in Vermont. It was sophisticated to an extent but yet rural and common. The weather, the ocean, and ,of course ,the Puerto Rican spirit were the big differences !

Clean, lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spend a week here to get away from the cold, snowy northeast CT winter and we were not disappointed. Dealing with Paul was easy and informative. We appreciated all his suggestions for shopping, food and things to do while in Rincon.

We ate at Rincon Tropical ( delicious native foods..try the steak Mofongo) Lucky 13 (best steak and tostones ever) and shopped at Econo and Edwards.Breakfast on our private patio couldn't be beat and falling asleep to the sounds of the waves was so relaxing.

We went to Rincon to relax so we didn't do a lot of sightseeing, went to the lighthouse to see the surfers, and drove to the top of a mountain for the breathtaking scenery at The English Rose. We sat on the beach and read and napped and and dipped in the ocean when we got too warm. This was heaven and we would definitely go back.

Stocked in the cabinets were pots and pans and everything like home. The game closet in the kitchen has games, snorkeling equipment, etc.

Several suggestions I gave Paul were well received: 1. Better directions to get to the villa. 2. Switching the water faucets so they are like the mainland and hot is to the left with cold to the right.

I never saw one bug in the villa the entire stay which was terrific!!

Owner's Response: We've expanded the directions to the villa and have made sure guests know they can contact the owner or property manager if they have any questions. A local plumber is advising us on switching the water taps so that they are like the mainland. We want to make our villa as easy and enjoyeable as possible!

So relaxing.......

  • 5 of 5

Hello , My husband, 21 yr old son and I stayed at the Seashell Villa on the top floor for 9 awesome days !!! It was very beautiful and the ocean is right outside your door !!!! The pictures are great but don't show the true beauty!! The only thing is the bedding now is all white, very comfortable mattress's. Upon arriving the Villa was very clean and secure. Phone calls with questions were answered promptly. The beach (right at your door) is very private and we enjoyed spending our nights right outside the back door enjoying the sunsets and the warm ocean water on our feet !!! We ate at a few local spots , but my son grilled the most awesome dinners right there ! Best snorkeling was @ steps beach. You must shop at Edwards food market and meet Jose :) Francisco next door was so great , the day we left he invited us into his home and cooked us some wonderful empanada's for our trip to the airport !!! We took a few trips. Camuy Caves,San Sebastian waterfalls, and the Arecibo Observatory biggest in the world .The main reason we went to Rincon was to visit my husbands childhood friend that has lived there for 12 years !!! What a life , a vacation should be relaxing and that's what we did mainly right outside our door !!!! If we make a trip to Rincon we would not hesitate to stay at the Seashell again !! You won't regret it !! We also did the Bioluminescent tour with BabyBay awesome!!!! Thank you to Paul and your management team !! We look forward to staying with you again :)
