Guestbook comments from the manager
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.

Jim Davidson purchased this apartment in 2013

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.

GREAT APT IN BARRIO PUNTAS, RINCÓN

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a lovely long weekend at Jim's apt in Barrio Puntas. The place was clean, comfy and had everything we needed. Including a gracious host and his cool dog. The best part is the big pool out back, perfect for lounging in the afternoons or any other time. Great place!

GREAT CLEAN PLACE..EXCELLENT VRBO EXPIERENCE

  • 5 of 5
We needed a place to stay on a very short notice and the owner was awesome and very accommodating. Our stay was phenomenal! The children loved the pool as well as the adults. We just wanted to relax while on vacation and the pool was the perfect way of helping us do so! The owner was fantastic; he was very helpful with recommendations on places to eat, shop and visit! The owner lives above the apartment but he gives you all the personal space you need! We will stay again on our next trip next year!

CALM AND RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
nice apartment on a big property. the apartment is right below the owners house, but you definitely get your own sense of space and privacy. the owner is a friendly man who knows a lot about the area and has an adorable dog.
swimming was wonderful- access to an almost olympic sized lap pool, or a few minutes walk to the beach.
there are lots of restaurants within walking distance, which is perfect when you're on vacation.
the apartment itself had lots of places to sleep and came equipped with anything we might need.

PERFECT LITTLE PLACE IN RINCON

  • 5 of 5
This is a great value right above what is probably the best part of Rincon - Sandy Beach. The house is up on the hill right about the town (ok, village) on a dead end road which makes it quite and private. The kitchen has everything you need, the rooms are just fine and include a bunk bed in a connecting room between the two bedrooms so extra kids - no problem. The lap pool is the star of the show and a great place to hand out after a long day.

The best part in the location - Sandy Beach is a hippy infused village with several really good casual restaurants for a variety of tastes - Thai, burgers, Puerto Rican, etc. Walking around in anything but flip flops, shorts and a shirt would make you overdressed. The Yoga + Bodega place is great and breakfast at Casa Isleña is wonderful.

The other great thing is the owner, Jim. Jim is wonderful - always attentive and a wealth of knowledge, the perfect host (host with the most).

I guess the only thing that might be an issue to some is the room layout. They are perfect size, perfectly appointed but they all connect which means you have to walk through them to get to the living room. Read: Not necessarily a romantic getaway if you have kids. But, then again, if you have the kids in tow the romantic getaway wasn't on the agenda anyway but thought I would mention it.

All in all this is great value for the money in exactly the place anyone wanting to drop out and relax would want to be. Totally recommend.

Owner's Response: I like the idea about the rooms. This was the second guest to suggest switching the two bedrooms. We will now make the second bedroom the master and the current master bedroom the second bedroom, providing more privacy and a separate entrance for the master bedroom. Thank you.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

  • 5 of 5
Ricon is a wonderful town and this is the perfect place to stay. We rented the bottom floor apartment for a family of four. The house is in a gorgeous setting, and is very comfortably appointed. The salt water lap pool was great--the kids swam every morning while waiting for us to get ready to go to the beach. We couldn't have been happier with the location--the beach is a 2 minute walk down the hill and there are several nice restaurants/bars within walking distance as well. The owner and his dog are excellent hosts. We would recommend this villa to anyone and hope to visit again ourselves!

BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  • 5 of 5
The property is beautiful and well maintained. We stayed in the downstairs apartment with our children and found it to be spacious and more than accommodating. The place is clean, well maintained, and has many personal touches that would make anyone feel at home. Our children swam in the large lap pool everyday and we enjoyed being in walking distance to several restaurants and the beach including Sandy beach, Tamboo and a great little taco shack. The owner, Jim, is knowledgeable about the area and was very friendly and attentive. We felt extremely safe and loved the views from the hilltop! We will definitely be back and will be telling all of our friends and family to visit Jim and the Hilltop Villa in Rincon!
