Mountaintop Villa with Spectacular Sunset View of Caribbean

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Relax and feel the serenity that this breezy 3,000 sq. ft. 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 of the Caribbean Sea. 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 1,500 sq. ft. of 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, kitchen. Wifi 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.

What makes this house unique

The sounds, scents, sights, and feelings brought out upon staying in our home allow serenity and happiness to permeate through the body. Nature is intimately close. The rustic and rural surroundings suggest a life of content through simplicity, away from the hustle and bustle of hectic city life. But one must not forget the life and vibrancy of Puerto Rico, drive 5 minutes away to hear the seductive lively beats of salsa music.

Mountaintop Villa with Spectacular Sunset View of Caribbean
average rating of 4.7619047 based on 43 reviews

Stunning view, huge house, and super nice owner and manager.

  • 5 of 5

The Mountaintop Villa is, as promised, a paradise. The view of the Caribbean Sea is the best therapy for a relaxing experience. The house is spacious, nicely decorated, and María includes everything you may need for a country or beach vacation. María stayed in touch since the minute we confirmed; and Popo, the property manager, was super helpful. He brought us the best mangos we have tasted in a long time. Driving up and down hill was part of the adventure. We really recommend the Villa and would love to go back.

Amazing house with the best views and close to town.

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing; the pictures do not do it justice. The views are amazing, even better than the photos suggest. We thouroughly enjoyed our time on the mountain and only wish that we had stayed longer. Maria was an excellent host with fabulous taste in decorations and art throughout the house.

We hope to return later in the year.

This was the most beautiful house we ever rented!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so very happy with the rental of this home!!!!! It was absolutely beautiful!!!!! Not only was the home beautiful and large, it was a "Million Dollar View!" The huge terrace looking over the mountains all the way to the ocean was STUNNING!!!!! We fit 8 people and never felt cramped! I would definitely rent this home again in beautiful Ricon!!!! Everything was easy and smooth to check in and check out! Had a wonderful stay! Couldn't be any better! Loved it!

Perfect for a relaxing weekend for 8!

  • 5 of 5

I planned a family weekend getaway at Rincón to escape from our busy lifestyles. Mountaintop Villa offered the perfect place for letting go all of our worries. You get to enjoy the breathtaking view of the ocean, while being surrounded by beautiful flora, which provides a comfortable temperature. You get to enjoy a tropical island without suffering the intense heat summer brings, even when the A/C is off.

We definitely look forward to enjoy this property again as soon as we find time.

Jim, who manages the property, was very kind and available when we needed his help.

It is important to mention that even though the beach is approximately 7 minutes away from this property (car), getting there was a challenge due to the small road. Once you get the hang of it, you forget how difficult it was to get there the first time you arrived. We have had the pleasure to enjoy Rincón before in other properties at walking distance from the beach. Even though those places were nice and we had a good time; it can be noisy and you get to experience the intense heat, needing an A/C on at all times, limiting your time enjoying the beautiful views and outdoors amenities these places usually offer. At Mountaintop Villa you can enjoy all indoor and outdoor amenities at a comfortable temperature. The house was clean, well equipped and beautifully decorated.

Beautiful house and view!

  • 4 of 5

The owner Maria and property manager were very attentive to your needs and I am very pleased with them! The house is beautiful and is well equipped with everything you need! The view is phenomenal and the best part of the house is the terrace! We spent most of our time out there! The only negative thing was that the drive up and down the mountain was longer than 5 min for us it was more like 20 min. We were always on the go so we would be making that drive several times a day and it got old.

Also the only place the wifi worked was in the master suite and in the living room if the master suite's door was open. (That is were the router is located). 5 ppl were sleeping downstairs and none of us were able to use our tablets which was a major bummer. We contacted Maria and she said she contacted the cable company and they said nothing was wrong with the service however the problem was never fixed.

Overall I highly recommend this place if you are looking for peace and tranquility. The feeling I got sitting outside looking over into the wildlife and beach sitting on top of a mountain as I sipped my coffee was priceless.

Owner's Response: Hi Sara and thank you for your review! Just wanted to mention that the house is mountain top and less than 3 miles from the nearest beach (a 5-10minute drive). Also, regarding the wifi, the Cable Co replaced the modem and all is working great! Happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed the house with its spectacular views. Please come visit again! Maria

A beautiful, well-maintained property with the perfect view.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The villa itself is lovely and inviting. It has all the amenities of home, with unexpected touches like beach chairs/towels to borrow and a grill on the outdoor patio. It is obvious that Maria and the caretakers put a lot of thought into making their guests feel welcome. We can't wait to return!
