A very beautiful home in a great location! My husband and I along with 4 teens (ages 15-17) really enjoyed the home and property. The house was clean, beautifully landscaped, very comfortable and spacious. Don't expect high-end amenitites, as the plates were mostly plastic (fortunately had some nice wine glasses), but the beds were comfortable and linnens acceptable. We also felt very safe in this location.
It's a five minute walk to the beach, which is also the only marina in Rincon, so many other activities are close (Katarina sailing, parasailing, snorkeling, Shipwreck Restaurant and horseback riding on the beach). The swimming is ok there, and the beach was deserted. Found some cool shells and sea glass. Unfortunately the parasailing boat had been shipped away for the low season the week before we got there. The local restaurants are fabulous - we ate at Pool bar sushi, Parrot Inn/Rum Shack, Shipwreck - and all were very good and quite fun.
The house is not easy to find the first time, particularly at night. Our rental car and phone GPSs didn't get us there, but with some help from the local police (who don't speak english), we were able to find the road but not the house. When the property managers didn't answer, we called the owners, and John picked up immediately and was very helpful and kind. I would recommend getting good directions to the house before driving there.
All in all a wonderful stay. When we weren't out exploring, we all spent our time not only around the beautiful pool, but also on the 2nd (main) floor balcony - great views of the pool, of a nicely landscaped neighborhood and a peek at the ocean. The roof top space is also great for early morning sunrises or late night star viewing. In PR, it's all about being outside, and this house provides a beautiful place to do that when you're not out exploring. This house was a high point for all of us on this great vacation. Highly recommended.
