I'm an avid surfer and have been going to Rincon, PR since 1991. I fell in love with Rincon's incredible waves, warm water, and relaxed, friendly vibe. Come experience it for yourself, it's truly an amazing experience.

Joe DeStephan purchased this house in 2005

Rincon is very accessible from the US, with the closest airport being in Auguadilla, only 35 minutes away (18 miles). Jet Blue, Continental, and Spirit, all serve Auguadilla (Airport Code is BQN). If you can't fly into BQN, San Juan Airport (SJU) is an easy two hour drive on Route 22 to Route 2 to Route 115 to Rincon.

At the bottom of the hill is Sandy Beach, a great beach for catching some surf, swimming, kayaking, walking, finding shells, or just relaxing and enjoying the sun. You can walk to the beach in 10 minutes, or drive there in 2. Parking is easy. Plus there are many bars and restaurants all within walking distance.

5 STAR HIDDEN TREASURE

  • 5 of 5
If you’re looking for a vacation rental located in a remote tropical oasis, look no further.
This rental has is stacked soup to nuts and has it all. 5 bedrooms, full kitchen, washer/dryer, living room, outdoor patio, wet-bar, bbq, ping pong table and full sound system with surround throughout the house make this villa a standalone compared to the others. Sitting atop a hill with a majestic view of the beach and located a few minutes away from Tamboo Beach Bar and several other local restaurants, bakeries and bars the location of this property is unbeatable.
NOTE: IF you do not like the sounds of nature and rain forest (roosters, coqui, birds, etc) this is NOT the house for you!
The property manager Wilson was readily available and very helpful with tips on local places and things to do also with any questions or concerns we had (how to turn on water/electric).
Joe did an excellent job with this property and made sure we had a pleasant stay by checking in with our group during the trip.
I travelled to Rincon with five people; needless to say all of us plan on returning and staying at the Super-Villa again asap.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
The house is located right in the middle of the best of Rincon, and is equipped with every thing you need. There are two speaker systems for playing your own music through out the house, a ping pong table, hammocks, a full kitchen, and a half kitchen on the deck (perfect for cold beers without moving to far from the hammocks). We have rented a lot of houses in PR for weekend vacations and this one had the most equipped kitchen by far. Everything you need to make family sized meals, which we absolutely did.

There were no complaints to be had. When I go back out west this rental will be my first pick if available.

HOME SWEET *RINCON* HOME

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Surf View Villa in February for 7 days with 12 friends and had such an incredible experience I never wanted to come home! This trip was the perfect escape from the cold and snow and into a tropical paradise!

One of the main components of my great experience was staying at this house which is located in the heart of Rincon near many beaches, restaurants, nightlife and beach bars. The house is split on 2 levels for adequate privacy/space and has a great upper outdoor deck overlooking the jungle - which was cool because you can see iguanas hanging out in the trees and enjoy a meal on the deck. There is also ping pong table, hammocks which you can hang as well as outdoor bar/BBQ grill setup on the lower level - this is perfect for when you are done soaking up the sun while playing on the beach or exploring town and just want to relax at home. I was able to practice my daily morning yoga poses on the lower level overlooking the jungle and we also grilled a few times during our stay which was really fun to stay-in, have the men grill while the ladies played cards and ping-pong.

We pretty much surfed, snorkeled, hung out at the beach and relaxed at the house. Sometimes we would grill and sometimes we would go out - the house was quiet enough on the split levels so if you are upstairs you do not hear the noise downstairs and vice versa. All of the bed linens and towels were clean and the house was well stocked with extra linens, pots/pans, coffee maker, dishes, etc. We were also a short drive, or hike, down the hill to town and the beach - you can walk it but you probably want to rent a car.

The house is perfect for a couple or couples, a family with children and extended family, and/or large groups of friends. It would also be good for a laid-back surfing business getaway.

One last thing to note is that Joe, the owner, was beyond accommodating ensuring all of our needs were met. You can tell he takes pride in his property and wants the renters to have an enjoyable experience - just as he does every time he visits! He went above and beyond to answer our questions and point us in the right direction - he is very familiar with the neighborhood, Rincon and PR so is happy to help. He even has an on-site Rincon house manager for any last minute issues that pop up just in case he's not available. 5 Stars to Joe and Surf View Villa!

WE FOUND A HOME IN RINCON!

  • 5 of 5
It really doesn't get much better than this: a beautiful home just up the hill from a quiet tropical beach. All the amenities you could ask for including an amazing two floor deck. The bedrooms are super comfortable and clean. Plenty of space and a modern spacious kitchen. The trade winds blow gently every afternoon and the sunsets are heavenly. The owner is professional and attentive and made everything so easy. We had an amazing time and we look forward to coming back real soon!

A GREAT HOUSE FOR A GREAT BIG GROUP

  • 5 of 5
I have had the pleasure of renting this house on two different occasions in the past year and have had an overwhelmingly positive experience both times. On both occasions, our group was 10+ people (adults and teenagers) and each time we stayed for 10 days-2 weeks, so we got to know the house quite well!
The house is beautiful, spacious enough to sleep at least a dozen, and even with that many people, doesn't feel crowded. The views from the front and back porches are spectacular, and the location is great for working, exploring the west coast, or just lazing on the beach at the bottom of the road. The property is well-maintained, and the few small maintenance issues we have had (e.g. a slightly leaky toilet), have been addressed quickly by Wilson, the awesome maintenance man.
The changes to the house that the owner, Joe, has made in the last year have improved what is, to me, the house's best feature, the downstairs deck. That space is so beautiful, and so much fun what with the grill, tables for feeding an army, new bar (with ice-maker, fridge, sink, etc), and the all-important ping-pong table. I think we spent more time out there than anywhere else in the place.
During and after both visits, the owner checked in with us to make sure that our visit was a good one, which was a really decent move on his part.
This a great place to stay, I actually miss waking up there some days, I recommend it whole-heartedly, and look forward to our next visit.

GREAT TIME

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here with a group of 12 friends during our spring break and everyone had an amazing time. The house was very nice, stocked with necessary amenities (tons of cooking supplies, ping pong table, etc.), and accommodated our large group well. The location of the house is wonderful--only a few minutes walk from beautiful beaches and delicious food. I highly recommend staying here.
