About Tim & Margaret Gill
Maggie and I met on a Long Island beach when we were just teenagers in 1986. We both grew up in New York and raise our family there. We celebrated our Silver Anniversary in July of 2011. We have a couple of terrific children, 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 vacation home's front door.
Tim & Margaret Gill purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Tim & Margaret Gill chose Rincón
After several years of traveling the Caribbean in search for a vacation home, our search led us to Rincon, Puerto Rico where the weather is terrific and swimming in the ocean during any months is great. To wake up and immediately view the ocean/beach for the bedroom is truly a paradise on earth.
What makes this Villa unique
Ocean views are present form the master and second bedrooms along with the living and dining rooms. Our villa is located in the first row of buildings along the seaside in this gated community. You can walk down the beach to Casa Islena or Tamboo/Beside the Pointe (10-15 minutes). Located along a stretch of beach known for some of the best sea-glass collecting anywhere.

If you want to be as close to the water as possible in Rincon this is the place!
Tim was great to work with. Easy instructions on how to get to the condo and info on the home. The on demand water heater wasn't always the best but we made do. The property manager came and showed us how to reset it so that was resolved quickly. Beautiful beaches, easy drive to surf spots and restaurants. We didn't turn on the tv the entire week!!
Thank you for choosing to stay with us. One of the breakers for the electric water heater had tripped and was an easy resolve. Sorry for your loss of adequate hot water for that day. Sometimes things, as small as they are happen and that is just a part of life. I hope all is well and healthy with you and yours during this Corona-virus time and Margaret and I welcome you back when this pandemic is over. Take good care. Tim
Great stay at Punta Del Mar Beach Village
Great condo to stay at. Lots of room with 2.5 bathrooms. Very clean, no ants, and has a dishwasher. The condo is located about 4 miles from a grocery store. Lots of great restaurants in the area. Property manager Kenny supplied us with a list of great restaurants. Also, this condo is located right on the beach. Surfers just love the location. From the beach we saw whales passing . The beach has an area (wade pool) that is great for the kids.
We couldn't have asked for a better location than inside this 135 acre gated community with its own 'private' beach. No beaches in PR are private but you feel like you have the whole world to yourself down there. Whale watching from our beach is cool during the first few months of the year (see whale picture from New Years Day a few years ago in pictures). We were fortunate enough to purchase this property 15 years ago from a famous athlete who after he retired returned the this beautiful community. Punta del mar Beach Village is one of a kind on the island. Close enough to downtown Rincon, miles from nowhere. Can't wait to go.....
We loved our stay at this Villa. We woke up every morning and walked the beach and collected shells and seaglass. We spent every evening on the roof top deck enjoying the ocean breeze and sunset. There was plenty of room, beds were comfy, and it was a great place to lay our heads down after long days of exploring. Rincon is beautiful, and the location is a quick drive to everything. We even saw a whale right from the beach in front of the villa, how cool is that!! We did not cook much as we wanted to enjoy all the good restaurants, but it appeared there would be what you need to make a nice meal. We were only provided a few trash bags, and with a family of 7 staying for 9 nights, we did run out on the last day and unfortunately had to pile up our garbage, mostly wine and water bottles, so we felt bad we could not fully clean up our garbage on the last day. The host was very communicative when we had questions. Highly recommend this beautiful property and Rincon!! We loved every minute of our stay. Thank you for allowing us to experience Rincon in such a great villa! :)
Hi Andrea, again, congratulations on your Rincon beach wedding and choosing to stay at our ocean-front 2800 sq. ft. villa. You are our first guests since we installed 4 new mattresses to the bunk beds in the third bedroom. It is often difficult to find quality items for our home on the island so we ordered those modern 'shipped in a box' mattresses. Even Kenny our manager was impressed when he installed them. Amazing what can be delivered to a PO Box in Puerto Rico. LOL. Blessings on your marriage and we look forward to your future stay with us.
Amazing location and property
Five of us(2 adults, 3 children) stayed at the property. Lovely property and five star location. We will definitely be back.
We are very happy you enjoyed your stay. The size of the villa, the ocean right outside your window and a short drive to downtown and restaurants. But so quiet and peaceful inside this gated and safe community. Just to lay in the hammock between the palm trees at the edge of the sea, that's relaxing.
A very beautiful family vacation experience
First of all on behalf of my family, I want to thank Mr. and Mrs. Gill for allowing us to have an unforgettable family vacation.
The house is gorgeous... It provided plenty of space for our family of 4 and 3 more to stay with us. Has all you will need and some. The location, RIGHT on the beach. Enjoying one of the most spectacular sunsets we've had in our lives. The views from the bedroom's are breathtaking. Enjoying evening dinners at the rooftop terrace with views to the ocean, that we will forever cherish... The neighborhood, one of a kind, gated community very very safe. The neighbors are sooo friendly... Made friends in our stay
The town, Rincon; one of the most laid back down to earth towns you'll ever visit. Farmer's market, Art Walk, Lighthouse, Steps Beach, Domes Beach, Tamboo Bar (highly recommended it) and sooo much more are withing a few minutes drive.
Surrounding towns Aguadilla, which has an airport and a beautiful beach called Crash Boat... Short drive south to Cabo Rojo another laid back to town to visit.
Totally recommended this rental... The saddest part is having to leave. Thanks again... WE WILL COME BACK AGAIN
I could not have said anything better. Thanks.
There are plenty of activities in and around the Rincon area. There is also a small marina in Rincon for half and full day boating, diving and snorkeling trips. There are whale watching trips during the winter months and whales can often be seen from our beach just outside the front door of from the third floor patio during whale watching season (January-March). You can walk to restaurants like Janeiro's (across from the complex entrance) Casa Islena (a 8 minute walk down the beach-towards the sunset) and Tamboo-Beside the Pointe a popular restaurant/bar-a 12-15 minute walk down the beach featuring live music on the weekends.
Kenny our property manager is there to help you find terrific places to visit, eat and drink and can also arrange for an in-house massage as well as the scheduling of surfing lessons.
