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.

Home Sweet *Rincon* Home

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!

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

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

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.

Disgruntled, disappointed family due to this rental!

  • Submitted: Mar 23, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
We rented this 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom home for 9 nights, and paid the owner the full amount requested before arrival. Its location was convenient to the beaches, and all activities we were seeking. Future renters should be warned about the loud roosters in front and back of this property. It was most annoying to be awakened daily at about 4AM by loud roosters, which continued all day! We believe a neighbor raises them because they were no place else on the street.
Upon arrival, we found one bedroom with a very moldy shade, and ceiling, smelling musty due to dampness and mold. It was unhealthy and unusable. The caretaker made every attempt to alleviate the problem: brought in a dehumidifier, which was poorly connected, flooded the bedroom, replaced the shade and curtain, and cleaned the room, which was dirty when we arrived. He stated that the bedroom had always been problematic to him. Matresses had to be moved out and two guests slept on the floor in another bedroom. This caused an uncomfortable, crowded situation, and finally four guests of different ages and from different families had to all occupy a large bedroom with 4 beds. The musty, moldy bedroom was unusable for the 9 days....even clothing left there smelled and needed to be laundered. On three occasions when the city water went out, the back up tanks only allowed use of 2 bathrooms for 10 guests. One bathroom had no shower curtain and wet tiles after showers were hazardous. Another hazard was that the outside motion detector light rarely worked, unless the passerby waved and was tall enough to reach its signal. The owner acknowledged the problems, had dirty, aluminum pots and pans replaced, and suggested we fix all other problems then "discuss remuneration"....this NEVER happened! We have emails to prove this.We paid for 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and that is what we expected. Now that we have returned the owner of the property will not reply to our emails or cell phone calls, and threatened legal action when we tried to leave a message at his work number.
Staying at Surfsde Villa COULD be a wonderful experience for surfers, or guests who don't care much about remuneration for unresolved issues, health or safety!

Owner's Response: I go out of my way to please everyone who stays at my home. Unfortunately there was nothing I could do to please this family because in the end the only thing acceptable to them was receiving a discount. Please don't let this be a reflection of my home or the way I operate. There have been hundreds of travelers who have stayed at my home over the last few years, all of whom have been extremely satisfied. With their approval, I am happy to put you in contact with them so you can ask any questions to better understand their experiences. Keep in mind I have a property manager who lives in Rincon, and is only a phone call away if any issues ever arise. His name is Wilson and he is attentive and honest. Thank you very much. Joe, Owner, Surf View Villa
