Why Jim Davidson chose Puerto Rico

The Rincon Hilltop Villa has many advantages. It is high enough to get the cooling trade winds, but is far away enough to avoid salt spray and any hurricane waves. The apartment is at the western tip of Puerto Rico.

What makes this apartment unique

The exclusive Colina Linda community has seven million dollar homes on a cul-de-sac. The lap pool, Jacuzzi, back-up generator, water cistern, electric entrance gate, DISH satellite TV and wireless internet, lets you get away from the urban environment and enjoy the rural atmosphere, but stay connected -- if desired.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The location is absolutely perfect, and Jim could not have been more helpful and easy to work with. We look forward to recommending this place to friend and returning as well!

Caribbean paradise

  • 5 of 5

Rincon Villa is a clean, spacious and well-appointed property in an awesome, quiet, upscale location. Highly recommended for couples, families and surfers/beachcombers. Several beaches/surf breaks are in easy walking distance as are a few restaurants and some basic conveniences. To go into Rincon or Aguada for shopping you'll need a car.

The lap pool is great for exercising or just lounging.

Rincon itself is a fabulous area with plenty of attractions and a wide range of good food at all prices. Getting there is easy from Aguadilla airport and from Rincon it is just a short drive to many interesting points in the western/southern areas of Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico itself is a great destination for vacation travelers as it's clean, modern, has reliable facilities and (for Americans) requires no currency conversion or special travel documents. Puerto Ricans are bilingual (Spanish/English) at least and very welcoming.

Senor Davidson is a long-time Rincon habitué/resident. He's very knowledgeable and well-known and respected in the area. One a scale of 1-10, with 10 meaning I would unreservedly recommend this property to friends and family, I would rate Villa Rincon a 10. We are considering another trip next winter.

Great place to Unwind, Relax and Enjoy.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Davidson’s Rincon Apartment was absolutely amazing. The apartment was very clean and well-maintained. Jim Davidson and his trusted companion, Jacob, are 5-star host. The apartment is a five-minute walk to Sandy Beach were one can view the breath taking scenery, surfers, and people just hanging out baking in the sun.

For those who enjoy an afternoon cappuccino, you’re in luck. Just a quick walk up the street from Sandy Beach, Jake’s Java wagon had just opened a couple of weeks ago. They have espressos, cappuccinos, smoothies and smoothie protein drinks. They told me that they are going to start serving vegetarian drinks.

Those who are adventures and want to drive around Rincon, I downloaded WAZE app on my android phone and worked great. In addition, those visitors who are driving from the Aguadilla airport, if one enters TAMPOO Resturante (land mark to the Jim’s apartment), Waze will navigate one to the restaurant. From here, make an immediate left on Calle Colina Linda a go straight up the hill. The apartment is located directly on top of the hill.

All in all, we had a great time. We highly recommend Jim’s apartment. Jim is a great landlord and host and he will not hesitate to make things right for the visitors. We are already looking forward for a return visit.
