Greatest Family Christmas Gift

  • 5 of 5

We were so fortunate to stay at the Wetzel home in Rincon. This was a much needed vacation with our 3 teenagers. Our Christmas gift 2015 was to spend the week in Rincon together. The property far exceeded our expectations. First, if you like to cook , there is everything you need to produce a gourmet meal in the kitchen. If you love to just relax and gaze at the ocean...the veranda and views are like non other. Then there is poolside where you can enjoy a respite from the beach, have a drink or just hang in a hammock and read. Second, in terms of location within the area, we walked to Maria's beach and The Beach House. Within minutes, we could access coffee shops, breakfast spots, groceries etc. In addition to this, Cabo Rojo is just a 1.5 hour drive for a day trip which is totally worth the time. Finally, the owners were so easy to deal with throughout the rental process. We were fortunate to meet while we were there in Rincon. Great People! Thanks Margie and Patrick for sharing your awesome home with us. We cant wait to visit again!

Awesome sunsets, best relaxing comfortable stay ever

  • 5 of 5

Thanks again for an awesome stay at your beautiful home. The 1-br apt was great for a quick swim in the pool and to just look out at the 190-deg. water view. We have lots of pictures to look through for months to come to remember the awesome sunsets, especially the evening right have the rain shower. Snorkeling at Steps the last 3-days of our trip were the best. The short walk down to Maria's beach and then lunch over at Jack's Shack made it so easy to relax and take in all the flavors of this beautiful spot. We have been visiting Puerto Rico since 1994 love Rincon. Thanks again for your hospitality and providing everything to make our stay the best.

Awesome Kickoff for 2015

  • 5 of 5

Albright Family Vacation (Rolf, Dawn, Justen, And Jena Albright with Megan Oliphant and TC Howard) - our vacation was just awesome!! We have stayed at this villa 3 times now. We just love it and actually consider it our Rincon home! The view is spectacular! We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and verandas. We like to cook big brunches and dinners. The kitchen and gas grill made it very easy. Two excellent restaurants/bars are within walking distance. We also enjoyed sitting on the veranda at night , playing cards and listening to the live music. We feel very blessed to stay at this home and can't wait to plan the next trip. I would highly recommend this villa.

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

I have gone to Rincon a few times and must say that this rental is by far the most pristine.

The pool is steps outside the front door. The water views and sunsets are spectacular. If you are looking for a relaxing, clean and safe place to hang your hat-this is the place for you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice note! We think that everyone should expect a safe, clean and comfy rental, that is a good sign for a great rental experience. And the ocean view is not bad either, thanks again and we look forward to seeing you next year.

Fun Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

I would give this spot 4.5 stars!! We spent a week over Christmas and New Years in Rincon with our 2 college age children for our family vacation this year. Rincon was such an inviting location!! It is an easy 2.5 hour drive from the San Juan airport. With so many AMAZING restaurants to choose from- whether a Mexican food truck on the side of a hill, a sushi dinner poolside or a candlelight table on the beach- I am glad we had all week to try them out. When we didn't want to eat out we had a fully stocked kitchen to make anything our hearts desired. Each morning started out with a juice made from fruit and veggies from a roadside stand in the Vitamix! There were plenty of reasonably priced water activities to keep all of us busy. While the boys surfed the girls spent our days paddle boarding. We all enjoyed reading and taking long walks on the beach. After a day of fun we found ourselves back at the beautiful villa to continue the fun at the pool or playing board games on the porch overlooking one of the most beautiful views we have ever seen. While there was only one air conditioner in the master bedroom - the fans helped circulate the air in all three sleeping areas. We will definitely be returning!

Spectacular !

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house! Views of Marias Point all the way to Tres Palmas. Sunsets are remarkable. Quiet, comfortable surroundings and a beautiful pool add to this already amazing setting. Barbqueing every evening watching the sun drop into the ocean was second to none. Cant wait to rent this house again.
