Overview

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.

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, sorry but as far as I know the whole house has it, you must of been in a dead spot, not sure why you were not able to get on. Happy to hear though 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!

Beautiful! Elegant!

  • 5 of 5

The home is both comfort and elegant. The view is magnificent. There was always a cooling breeze on the balcony. And so far as we could tell no mosquitoes. We loved it, and hated to leave.

Our Stay in Rincon Property id 284808

  • 5 of 5

The house was as amazing as the view , the most beautiful sunsets you'll ever see. If your planning on visiting Puerto Rico with your family or friends and your into surfing and water sports and would like the greatest experience of staying in el campo (the countryside) and la playa (the beach) come to Rincon and stay at this beautiful house overlooking the ocean. The owner Maria treated me first class all the way, as did the caretaker Jim.

Wonder Villa on West Coast of PR!! Amazing Trip!!

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is absolutely gorgeous. It was super clean, well maintained, private, and secure. The villa was nice and big with a open layout. It was nicely decorated with very comfortable bedding. It is definitely located in the mountain so if you like mountains this is the place for you !! We arrived at night so we did not get to see the amazing views upon arrival. When we awoke the next morning and walked out onto the veranda we couldn't believe our eyes! Honestly, it was so beautiful I actually cried. I said OMG THE VIEW!! We have NEVER witnessed a sunset look the way it did in Rincon. I would suggest driving into Rincon during daylight hours as the area does not have many street names, signs and/or building #s (addresses). GPS was helpful at times but also was not as accurate as we needed it to be. When we did need help (after getting lost our first day) Jim dropped everything to come and assist us by allowing us to follow him back up the mountain to the villa. It may take a few days to get used to driving the mountain roads which are very narrow and winding. You can tell who is a seasoned driver in PR. =) Late night eating was hard to come by so we suggest eating early dinners. The beaches and site seeing along the West coast of Puerto Rico are unlike anything I've ever experienced. We will be returning. Maria and Jim were very helpful and readily available to answer any questions we had.

Thank You for a wonderful vacation!!

Happy New year to ALL!!
