The apartment is in the exclusive Colina Linda cul-de-sac area of Puntas, Rincon. It is perched 100 feet above the Huffington Post-rated, world's 7th sexiest beach, among Surfing Magazine's 30 best surf spots, and 3 blocks from one of CNN's World's 50 best beach bars - Tamboo Tavern. The apartment is the first deck of a 3-story villa. It has 2 bedrooms, a bunkroom, with living room, full kitchen, and bathroom: sleeps 4-6. The backyard includes a 65' x 12' x 4' salt water lap pool and a Jacuzzi. There is a large back-up generator and electric gate. Rates are $150 per night for the apartment. 10 percent discount for active, reserve, and retired U.S. military (including USCG).
We stayed in both the house and apartment -- wow, what views. And so close to the beach -- though surf was huge that week. I have never seen sunsets so beautiful. Loved the salt water pool. We hope to return this summer again with the older kids when they get out of school. Great places to eat nearby, especially the sushi at Pool's Bar.
After seeing the tropical world, I always return to my favorite place: Rincon.
The Hilltop Villa has many advantages. It is high enough to get the cooling trade winds, but is far away enough to avoid salt spray and any hurricane waves. Having rented a beach house (down the hill) for two years, I realized that living on a hill is better. The villa is the western tip of Puerto Rico.
The exclusive Colina Linda community has seven large million dollar homes on a cul-de-sac. The lap pool, Jacuzzi, back-up generator, electric entrance gate, large screen TV and internet (not too fast though via satellite), lets you get away -- and in-shape -- but stay connected -- if desired.
