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 bunk-room, 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 $175 per night for the apartment. 10 percent discount for active, reserve, and retired U.S. military (including USCG).
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. The apartment is at the western tip of Puerto Rico.
The exclusive Colina Linda community has seven million dollar homes on a cul-de-sac. The lap pool, Jacuzzi, back-up generator, electric entrance gate, DISH satellite TV and wireless internet, lets you get away from the urban environment and enjoy the rural atmosphere, but stay connected -- if desired.
One "BE Rincón" discount card is provided at no cost with each reservation. The BE Rincón card (www.bepuertorico.com) gives guests up to hundreds of dollars in discounts at local restaurants, shops, and services.
The location is absolutely perfect, and Jim could not have been more helpful and easy to work with. We look forward to recommending this place to friend and returning as well!
Beautiful home in a great location. Jim and his co-host dog Jacob were very welcoming and friendly. Drives to the north and south shore beaches were only 1.5 drive and easy to navigate with Google Maps on an ATT serviced phone. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet and convenient location.
The property is beautifully maintained, private with a fabulous pool and spa. It is at the top of a very steep hill and behind a security gate. Missed the fabulous sunset views we love here in Rincon.I felt a little like Rapunzel. Close to the action, yet removed. If you are looking for privacy and solitude, this is your place. The power was out for almost the entire week we were there, Jim has a backup generator, so we never were without. The layout of apartment is odd, but it worked for us (4 adults). Jim was great. Greeted us with a bottle of wine, lent us his cooler, snorkel gear, and even a pair of flip flops for my husband when his disappeared off the beach while he was surfing. We loved Jacob!
I was very satisfied with my stay in the Rincon Hilltop Villa. The pool, jacuzzi and rooms were clean and well maintained. The villa was quiet and out of the way. I would travel back to and recommend to friends. Jim was an excellent host, he made you feel at home and recommended places to eat and shop.
A must for a relaxing vacation.
Very comfortable and a full kitchen, 3 bedrooms, a Huge Lap pool and heated Whirl pool.
I would stay there again for sure!
We are extremely satisfied with our stay in the Rincon Hilltop Villa. It felt like home! The owner Jim became like our friend and was very helpful with what ever we needed. The apartment was nice and clean with a loot of space and well equipped. The garden and the pool was amazing, especially the jaccuzi. The house is located only 2minutes walk down to Sandy beach, witch offers good surfing and nice restaurants. A place to travel back to and place to recommend to friends!
We stayed here for 4 days with 6 adults and found this place to be just what we were looking for—nice, relaxing, safe place within walking distance to the beach and driving distance to other beaches and downtown Rincon. The apartment is in a great location; it’s up a steep hill from Sandy Beach, where you can walk down the street to a couple shops and several good restaurants (our favorites: Ode to the Elephants, Pools Beach Sushi, and Kabanas). The surf was surprisingly small for December but we still got some fun waves. The non-surfers in the group enjoyed walking down the beaches, finding seaglass, swimming/snorkeling, tanning, and hanging out at the house’s pool/hot tub (a great feature!) We also drove around quite a bit too to other surf beaches (Domes, Steps, up to Wilderness and Jobos in Aguadilla) and to downtown Rincon, which has an awesome farmers market on Sunday mornings! The apartment itself was fairly new and clean, though probably not designed to house 6 adults. We had to set up an air mattress (since the bunk beds don’t hold average adults), so that decreased our living space more. By spending most of our time outside, we didn’t feel too cramped though. Depending on your group, sharing 1 bathroom can be a challenge but we made it work. We ate most of our meals out because there are so many great local restaurants, but we were able to make a little bit of food/sandwiches in the kitchen but due to its size, it’s difficult to make anything large. If you aren’t used to Puerto Rican living, like we are, you might get frustrated at certain things, but we are used to being more flexible/easygoing. The things I’m talking about are crazy drivers, roads covered in 10” deep potholes, reptiles/bugs inside and outside buildings, garbage build-up (when the local collectors skip a week), and sensitive electricity/sewage. Regarding the last issue, the house has an emergency generator, which we didn’t end up needing thankfully. But we did have some sewage issues, which were eventually rectified. The owner lives in upper level of the house and was readily available for things we needed. The sewage issue may have been fixed quicker in the States (took about a day), but again, this is PR. The owner did his best to accommodate our needs during our stay which we appreciated. We would certainly recommend this spot to other families/surf groups in the future.
