Bellas vacaciones en Bello Horizonte!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Bello Horizonte this past December. Aleida is a marvelous and attentive host. She shopped ahead for us, so that we arrived with basic provisions, and she met us the morning after our late-night arrival, to ensure that we had all we needed. The house is exactly as pictured. The rooms are spacious and updated. The bathrooms are modern and very clean, with beautiful tile work. The kitchen is very well equipped. The grounds are lovely, and we enjoyed fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice each morning (which we squeezed with the help of the electric juicer provided!). The pool was refreshing and picturesque! If you're thinking "but I want to stay on the beach" you don't. The beaches are so varied, that you will love the freedom of staying at Bello Horizonte and driving to your beach of choice each day. I walked to the Domes and Spanish Wall beaches from BH several mornings, watched the surfers and collected buckets-full of seashells and bleached sea urchins. We spent most afternoons first at the Steps beach, snorkeling and sunning, then "in town" at the swimming beach, for more relaxed, calm swimming and beautiful sunsets. I've rented several houses through homeaway, and Bello Horizonte is one of the best ever! Aleida, please feel free to use me as a contactable reference! Linda

Amazing house, amazing area in PR, loved every minute

  • 5 of 5

Rincon is a beautiful area. This was my first time in Puerto Rico and I absolutely loved it. The views from the house are amazing (just like the photos). Catch a nice sunset while soaking in the pool - breathtaking. Owners are very nice and always checked on us to make sure we are well taken care of. The grounds are beautiful with lots of tropical plants and trees (huge mango tree as you drive up, coconut trees, banana trees). House is completely private and in a safe area. Lots of great restaurants within 5-10 min drive - Lazy Parrot / Francisco, Beach House, Tamboo, Sushi Pool Bar, Calypso Cafe, and much more. Supermarkets (Econo), local market shops, gas stations, beaches all 5-10 min drive. Drive from San Juan is an easy 2.5 hrs drive (half highway, half local streets). Lots of outdoor things to do all 15min to 1.5 hrs away. People are nice and friendly in the area. Thank you for a beautiful vacation. Will always remember and if my travels bring me back I will stay again at the Bello Horizonte.

Awesome family property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The house was clean and everything was in great shape. Great view and the grounds were well taken care of. The outdoor shower was plus. The outdoor seating area with table and hammock was nice way to stay out of the sun and still enjoy the outdoors. The location was perfect as well. There was great food all along the 413. There is a very good restaurant and bakery right across the street and a few doors up. The house is up on a hill so it is away from the road and the only neighbor that is close is the church next door. We only heard the church Sunday morning around 10am. The owner responded very quickly to any questions and even worked out an extended stay since there was no one checking in after us (we paid a half day rate and stayed until 10pm). We will hopefully be back soon.

A beautiful week in a beautiful house in a beautiful location on a beautiful island!

  • 5 of 5

Bello Horizonte is true to its name. We enjoyed our stay at Bello more than words can describe. It didn't feel like you were a tourist, it felt like you were home, but in an exciting and adventurous way. The house is very clean, warm and welcoming. You wake to roosters crowing from the surrounding neighborhood and you know immediately you are back in the Caribbean. The view from yard is spectacular and the trade winds are ever present. You can sit outside at night and listen to the waves crashing in the distance.

Our group consisted of three couples in our 50's and 60's and we all loved this place. Plenty of bedroom and loafing space with a nice pool overlooking the sea. All I can say is "We will be back!"

Thanks Aleida & Jack. You were great hosts.

Hasta You Later!

Look no further and book this home!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! It had everything we needed, all we had to do was bring our clothes. While not directly on the beach, the view of the ocean from the yard/pool deck was fantastic. You could walk to a couple of beaches nearby, or a short drive (minutes) to several others. The pool was clean and the perfect temperature, my son was in that pool every morning and every evening. The house was clean and perfect. The terrace area, where we spent most of our time while at the home, is clean and the perfect temperature with the gentle island breezes sweeping across each day. I was amazed that there were NO bugs the entire time we stayed here in March. I didn't see a single mosquito, fly, or anything else. The hammock on the terrace was a favorite spot for both of my sons to relax. Aleida called us the day after we arrived to make sure we had everything we needed and to offer help in any way while navigating around the island for things to do. Even before our arrival, Aleida assisted me with the booking and made sure to communicate with me prior to our arrival to ensure she answered any questions we may have had. The property the house is on is beautiful and you can tell that Aleida and Jack really take pride in this place and want to make sure their guests feel comfortable. I would recommend this place to anyone, and Rincon itself was the perfect place to call home base during our stay. I would also highly recommend Puntas bakery, which is walking distance from the house, and make the short drive to Villa Cofresi and have lunch on the beach. The chicken burrito there is the best you’ll ever have. For activities in Rincon, Flying Fish Parasail was an absolute blast and is located just a few minutes away from the house. Pinto’s R Us horse riding on the beach was amazing too. Make the 1+ hour drive to Rio Camuy and tour the cave, well worth it. For souvenirs, go to Pepon Souvenirs in Rincon, best selection, prices, and staff was very helpful. We were on the go the first 5 days of the trip to explore other parts of the island and do activities, but the last two days of our stay we decided to just hang out at the house and relax because it was so nice there. The kids are already asking when we can go back to Bello Horizonte.
