Great Family Time
Submitted: January 9, 2012
Stayed: December 2011
Our families – a total of 10, six adults and four teenagers (mid-to late teens) - used the Grand Vista and Casa Mar villa apartments during Christmas - New Years week of 2011. The location is terrific – private entrance right on an uncrowded section of the beach (not touristy) in Rincon. The location has gorgeous beach, views and sunsets, and we had perfect weather. The two apartments are spacious and nicely appointed with everything one could want. An asset for us was that the Grand Vista had a door at the rear that allowed easy passage to the Casa Mar apartment. The beds were great and each room had lots of space. We did not feel crowded. The units were very clean and the service was super. The kitchens had all the essentials and we cooked many of our meals. We made good use of the very nice, large kitchen in Grand Vista. The adjacent dining area has a super large table for communal meals, conversations and board games. Although we did not use them much, there are several TVs and DVDs. There was good wireless that we used a lot. There are numerous good bathrooms with adequate towels. Self-service laundry is available on site. The beachfront balcony is great and overlooks the ocean with comfortable rockers and side tables for relaxing and reading. Attention to guest convenience is provided in the way of beach towels, folding chairs, beach chairs, and an outdoor sprinkler to rinse off when returning from an ocean dip. The location has nearby access to great snorkeling, surfing, and other water sports. The location also has good access to grocery, bank and restaurants. The villas provide an option to have catered meals provided via Wilson, the property manager, at a nominal cost. We took advantage of this and had a terrific pork-based meal of local cooking. Wilson was a huge asset, friendly, knowledgeable and available for advice and help as needed. The neighboring beautiful red rooster was an excellent alarm clock, although usually not needed or wanted, and we got used to him. Overall, our stay was most comfortable and everything we needed was there. It’s great for a large group.

Owner's Response: Being that we are a new property on the market, we haven't had many groups experience our villas. We appreciate the high marks given our location, amenities and services and are always working to make the guest's vacation an unforgettable and special time. Thank you.
