About Tim & Margaret Gill
Maggie and I met, where else? On a beach but on Long Island when we were just teenagers in 1986. We celebrated our Silver Anniversary in July of 2011. I inspect buildings for a living and Maggie drives a school bus. When we're not working, we love to get away to our future retirement home in Rincon where we've got the pleasure of making some real nice friends over the years in and around our Puerto Rican home. We enjoy getting away from it all whenever we can on one of those nightly JetBlue flights from JFK straight into Aguadilla-then it's only about a 25 minute drive to our warmer front door. Peace, quite, sunshine and smiles. Ah, Rincon, how we've missed you. After sailing the Caribbean a few times it was time to find a place in the sun where we could easily get away from the cold northeast and faster lifestyle. After deciding that Puerto Rico is the ideal place for folks from the states, we spent several of our next vacations traveling different areas of the Enchanted Isle. After learning that our real estate agent who serves the entire island of Puerto Rico, has plans on retiring in Rincon, we knew we had to check it out. While I was looking for a house on its own piece of property (we vacation in upstate New York often), Maggie was looking for a beach-front community with security and plenty of amenities-well, she won out. Don't they say that the woman is always right. Well she certainly was in this case. We've found a terrific second home right at the beach, with great neighbors and friends along with the piece of mind of the 24 hour gated community when we're not able to get away. Punta del Mar Beach Village sits on approx. 145 acres of ocean-front property. The largest of its kind in western Puerto Rico.

Why Tim & Margaret Gill chose Río Grande
This secure and friendly residential complex on the northwestern corner of Puerto Rico is truly paradise. The weather is outstanding, nature is bountiful and time spent just so relaxing. Our Home away from Home. What a find it was to find Rincon.

What makes this Villa unique

The quiet and private community provides security and piece of mind for adults and especially for your small children-truly a terrific family environment.

Warm, inviting and cozy you will find our home most relaxing for a fabulous vacation stay.While in Rincon, Maggie likes to walk/jog the mile-long driveway from the guard booth. There are tennis and basketball courts as well as an exercise room at the club house near the resort-styled swimming pool. We spend time collecting sea glass on our often secluded beach. We also snorkel one our beach and often relax at night playing dominoes or hanging with our neighbors. When we're out and about during the day, there is always a choice of what to see, where to go or what to buy. Privacy and security are two words we use to describe our vacation getaways at the gated community of Punta del Mar Beach Village.

Spacious two-story villa steps to the beach.
Perfect setting for an intimate experience with the beach and ocean. Loose track of time and the cares of life while beachcombing to the therapeutic rhythms of the sea. Quiet, clean and safe. Best place to stay in Rincon.
Exactly what we wanted!
We had a great stay in the Gill's home. It was perfect for our needs and everything was easy, from check-in to check-out. The lock-box arrangement is smart, as different family members were out doing different things and nobody had an issue getting in when necessary. The Rincon area is beautiful, with a charming little town and lots of available activities. The complex is a few minutes from town and is a fantastic place for kids. It felt very safe and had little car traffic, with large grassy spaces and a perfect, protected swimming area for little ones. The beach was lovely and the neighbors were friendly. The home was clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable week in Puerto Rico. We would definitely rent again!
Beautiful Location, Lovely Home
We spent a week this March in Rincon with our three children, 11, 13, and 15. This condo is well laid out, clean, and in an amazing location. It is literally steps from the beach (which we had basically to ourselves the entire week). Tim was quick to respond the few times I had questions, we met his property manager, Kenny, who was super nice and gave us some good island tips for us and the kids. The home itself had plenty of room for our family of five, and It was nice to for the kids to have their own bedroom and bathroom. We made good use of the grill and two outdoor seating area, lower level patio and roof top patio. The kids were happy that the WiFi was good, and enjoyed some movies on Netfix. The grounds were very well maintained post hurricane Maria. I For the purpose of this review, I wont review the entire state of the island post-Maria, however Rincon appears to be recovering well. We had zero issues with cell coverage or GPS, water, or electricity during our stay. We met several other locals and renters of the complex, all who were welcoming and eager to share their stories and favorite spots and restaurants on the island. The surf was very high the week we visited, and we enjoyed watching the waves and local surfers at nearby Maria beach, and even took our own surfing lessons...the kids did great! We found Rincon to have everything we needed, good grocery stores, amazing bakeries, and great restaurants. We were pleasantly surprised by how reasonably priced everything was. If you are planning a laid-back visit to Rincon, this is the place you want to be.
Thank you for the terrific review; it's good that people know Rincon is doing well as the locals are in need of the tourism economy to get strong again. It is such a perfect little Caribbean town (with an American flag).
We stayed at Tim’s place in Jan 2018. We had a fabulous time. The beach was swimmable and right in our backyard. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed.
What a great vacation.
We absolutely loved our stay in your beautiful vacation home. The villa was fully equipped with just about everything we needed for a perfect vacation. We really appreciated the fact that everything we needed for spending our days on the beautiful beaches of Rincon was there for us to use, from brand new beach chairs, a cooler, great large beach towels, etc. Your home was so perfect for our family of 4 (2 teenage boys). There was plenty of room and we felt so comfortable. The grounds were beautiful and the private beach was such a bonus. Loved having my coffee there every morning. It was truly paradise. The only thing missing was a dishwasher but it wasn't absolutely necessary since we dined out every night at the awesome restaurants in Rincon, especially Tamboo. Thanks for all of the recommendations you gave us. You were so helpful. We can't wait to return. We absolutely loved Rincon and felt so at home in your vacation home. Thanks for providing a great place for us to stay in. Hope to be back soon.
Wonderful Condo in an Amazing Location !!
The location of this condo is amazing, the condo is close enough (5 minutes) to Rincon to enjoy the town and all it's activities and far enough away to feel completely secluded. The condo is wonderful, it has everything you need for a comfortable stay. You will not be disappointed.The complex is quiet and well kept. The beach in front of the complex is in the perfect location if you want to take quiet long walks, wade in the tide pools or hunt for sea glass. There is also a great surf break literally straight out from the walkway to the beach.
Tim and Margaret are very responsive as hosts as is the local manager Kenny. Tim will provide you with directions and suggestions on the local area. You can use Google Maps for directions to the condo but we found the connection to go in and out, if that happens no need to worry, Tim's directions are perfect right down to the landmarks to look for before making any turns.
We have traveled many times using Home Away and Airbnb and have had good fortune, I have to say though this was the most pleasant experience we have had. We had to delay our arrival and Tim was very accommodating, it gives you an idea of the type of host you will get when renting this property.
Although it is a long way to Puerto Rico from the west coast, we will definitely be back. We loved everything about our stay.
Thanks. We absolutely love how the villa is so close to Rincon and all its attractions and things to do yet having that secluded feeling right at the beach is wonderful. San Juan is a good 2 hours drive so if you are able to fly into Aguadilla (BQN) on JetBlue, Continental or Spirit you would only have a 25 minute drive to paradise. The airlines do have some late night and early morning flights though.
