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

We spent our first christmas away from home here. It could not of been any better. It's located in a great part of Rincon. The house is quiet and located on a great landscaped property. The house was clean and well supplied. Thanks. PS Happy Bowls 3 houses away has amazing Acai Bowls.

A great home "away from home"

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

We just returned from our stay at Bello Horizonte and I have to say we loved this home and it's location so much. I traveled with my husband, teenage son and two of his friends (all surfers, except me). We chose this home for the close proximity to Maria's and Domes surf spots. Having stayed in Isabela last year and traveled to Rincon most days, we decided to stay in Rincon this year. The surf didn't cooperate the first few days however so we found ourselves traveling back and forth to Isabela (Jobos beach and Middles). Oh well. The plus to that is we know most of the roads now lol.

The house was perfect for us! Aleida and Jack have a very clean, well maintained home. We loved the open doors/windows. It was very windy and cool the first couple days. We didn't need the AC unit. My husband and I enjoyed hearing the tropical birds and coqui. It was generally quiet with little street/traffic noise the first couple nights, (Tue/Wed) however the other nights we ended up turning the AC on to drown out the noise from a neighbor's yapping dog. The home is up on the hill, a little distance from street level which is wonderful and gives so much more privacy. The landscaping and vegetation surrounding the home is just gorgeous! Huge beautiful coconut palms, flowing gingers, banana trees, beautiful flowering tropical cacti, large aloe plants, Rosemary, and the most amazingly HUGE mango tree (I still am not convinced but my husband says it was).

The views from the pool area of Desecheo Island were just beautiful. I was a little disappointed that the trees to the left were grown up and hindered better sunset views in the evening. We appreciated and did benefit from view of Domes, as we could check to see if there was a swell or flat. The pool area was beautiful, just the right size we thought. It was a bit cold, maybe because the weather was so mild and the sun didn't hit directly on it for a long length of time to warm it.

The kitchen had pots/pans/dishes, even some disposable plates/utensils (possibly extras left from previous renter). We cooked most meals and I was pleasantly surprised to find many herbs/spices in the cupboard as well as cooking oil. I did purchase some black pepper and left to add to the supply. We also were thankful to have a washer/dryer to use during our stay.

We loved Bello Horizonte and would recommend to others for sure. Thank you Aleida and Jack for sharing such a treasure with others.

Beautiful home with great views to the “Puerta del Sol”

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We stayed 6 nights with 4 kids, ages 7, 10, 12, 15. We drove in and immediately where greeted with an awesome view of the Ocean via the pool and fresh mangos provided by Aleida –thank you so much. Once you step inside the home you realize how well it’s maintained and how beautiful the Spanish style decor and architecture is. A/C, Wi-Fi and all the amenities you need are provided (minus the groceries). It's safe and next to a church. The pool area is great and very enjoyable –the sunset is spectacular. Great location to any attraction and close to some of the best beaches in P.R. including Steps Beach and further up you can go to Crash Boat beach, just to name a few.


During our stay we ventured out to visit family in Aguada and Aguadilla. Visited the mansion of Palace Los Moreau, shopping in downtown Aguada, visited the old lighthouse ruins by the airport, Crash boat Beach, Steps Beach, San German (a very neat town), Rincon Lighthouse and relaxed in the very spacious and delightful home.

If you go to Steps beach the parking is tricky and very limited, go further down to the Marina and park. You will need to walk back on the beach. Enter the water 100yrds south of the “steps” and enjoy your snorkel adventure, just be careful of sea urchins.

We purchase some basic groceries and “Pan Fresco” from the local store down the road. We had lunch at “La Papa” and dinner pizza (by the kids request) at the local restaurant “Mi Familias Pizzeria” –all delicious.

Overall a great home, with a beautiful view, great pool and relaxation hammocks, plus great location to spend your much deserved vacation in P.R. We shall be back so please take care of this beautiful gem !

Tranquility, beauty, refreshment for body and soul!

This is a very quaint and beautiful villa. It is a little hard to find because the drive way angles away from the road. This is a benefit once you find it though because no one, not even street traffic will bother you because you are several feet above the road. There is a wonderful pool with a gorgeous view! I could literally stay there forever!

Everything you need is present in this villa. You will have the most wonderful time and the beautiful beaches of Rincon are only 3 minutes away. If you are looking for the perfect value in Rincon, this is it!

Best vacation home ever. Ever.

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Rincon before and knew we loved the area, but staying here blew away our expectations. This house is so beautiful and private and delightful. We immediately felt at home. Aleida bought some groceries for us (so thankful- we arrived very late with toddlers) so we woke up to that VIEW, ate outside, and jumped in the pool, where we basically lived for the week. The three year olds called it our Special House and every time we left, they asked if we were going back to the Special House.

The home itself is beautiful and simple. That's a huge plus. We have rented homes many times where we've had to move fancy and breakable items from toddler eyesight. Here we moved one vase and felt at home.

We rarely used the inside shower. There's a shower that's in a bathroom off the patio that we used often and then a BONUS outdoor shower closer to the pool where we rinsed off after our many trips to the beach. Great washer/dryer, two hammocks, this place is PERFECT.

Car: recommended

US citizens do not require a passport or visa! Rincon is the furthest west town on the island of Puerto Rico. Famous for our sunsets, kind people, surfing, whale watching, diving and snorkeling. We are a 30-40 minute drive from Aguadilla airport (BQN) with flights in daily on Continental, Jet Blue, and Delta from Newark, JFK, Atlanta, and Florida. San Juan (SJU) is a 2.5 hour drive away with flights from all over! Our quiet town is a break from the big cities. We have no traffic lights yet, but we're only 20 minutes away from the town of Mayaguez with a Sam's Club, Super K, Chilis, Long Horn Steak House, movie theaters, casinos, winter league baseball games and more! The Arecibo Observatory (James Bond's Golden Eye and Jody Foster's Contact) and the Camuy caves are just a 1.5 hour drive. We aren't New York City! This is a slow down and enjoy the tropical breezes vacation. You can be as busy as you wish or just sit and enjoy this paradise we are happy to share with you!

Other Activities: whale-watching, beach-combing, sea glass
