Christmas get away Dec 24-27, 2009

  • 5 of 5

my family and I had a wonderful time at Rincon Retreat! my communication before arriving to the house with Jay was excellent and the local contact was always available for whatever we need it. we even had a Christmas Tree!!!!!!

the house is beautiful, very comfortable and clean. the pool is big enough for 9 ppl. to play in it, and the sunsets are to die for when you sit at the 3rd floor deck. the neighborhood is a quiet one and if you like to walk you may do so to the beach (is like a 7-10min walk going down a hill) the beach is great for surfing and sunbathing not to good for a normal swim (too many rocks), at the beach you have a couple of good restaurants and bars right at the beach.

I love Rincon and my experience was really good that i will definitely stay here again.

Pictures outdated

  • 3 of 5

The property needs a lot of TLC. very disappointed in the cleanliness of the place. The pool is falling apart and also not very clean, especially around the hot tub where the tile has fallen off and turned moldy. There were not enough towels, wash clothes and no dish towels what so ever. We did have to call the property manager (Luis) on several occasions (not going to list all issues) and he was very prompt in getting back and coming out when needed. Luis was also very helpful in suggesting beaches and places to shop for groceries and other items. I told Luis I was surprised the pool was in such bad shape, since I got the impression by a conversation I had earlier in the year with the owner's wife that it was being redone. Luis said they were waiting to start after the last renter in April. we hope this is true, because the house has great potential and its location is very nice for surfers & beach goers. If you walk down the hill you will find several nice restaurants with great food. Everywhere we went we were greeted with a smile and a story on how the ended up living in Rincon (moved from the states). It's a laid back kinda town. Suggestion: plan on staying in San Juan one night and visit old San Juan, the Marriott is very nice and on the beach :)

Lovely comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

Like all the reviews say, this house is better than pictures! Luis and Jay are very responsive and nice. We were two families with kids and we enjoyed cooking dinners in it's well equipped kitchen and sunsets at their large pool . It's close enough to sandy beach and restaurants. Everything was awesome!!!!

Comfortable, Convenient and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this house to any large group, especially those with children. It would also be lovely for a smaller group with the means to afford it. It's comfortable, convenient and a terrific place to relax and unwind.

The property has so much to offer. It's an easy walk to Sandy Beach and two of our favorite restaurants: Tamboo and Big Kahuna Burger. It's an easy drive to several other gorgeous surf beaches and to downtown Rincón for groceries and local festivals. The pool is inviting and located in a beautiful setting with banana trees, parrots and a warm tropical atmosphere. The top deck is perfect for sunrise yoga and sunset cocktails. It offers a well equipped kitchen and a separate bedroom and den area so that part of any group can hang out on their own (claimed immediately by our grandchildren).

There is no "master" bedroom with a private bathroom in the main house, but the main bedroom (which shares a bathroom with one other bedroom) has a separate entrance to the pool area and large windows, which make it quite pleasant and special.

The property is very clean and though there were some small maintenance issues (like two drawers in one of the bathrooms having broken slides, a broken ladder in the pool, and a shower that wouldn't turn completely off) they did not interfere with our enjoyment of our stay. Internet access was perfect for streaming movies in addition to all other uses. Being located in Rincón, there was the occasional power outage and we made use of the back up water supply fairly regularly. However, there WAS a back-up water supply that was easy to use and a generator for use if the power outage were to last too long. Also, the owner provided 5 gallon bottles of water in case we didn't like the taste of the tap water - all comforts considered!

Luis, the property manager, was pleasant and readily available for questions and concerns. He stopped by to check on things and be sure that we had what we needed. He truly helped make our stay easy and comfortable.

You can't do better than this.

Resort Like Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing place. The house and the grounds are beautiful. Our group consisted of 6 adults and four children and we had more than enough room. From the moment we arrived we felt right at home. Luis, the Property Manager, was excellent to work with and he was available in person or by phone whenever we had any questions. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this home and it's many amenities; including the ac units in every room. We enjoyed lounging by the pool everyday and barbecuing on the large outdoor terrace. The lush landscaping surrounding the home is breathtaking. There is a huge avocado tree right next to the pool and several coconut trees out back. The avocados were still too young but we had fresh coconuts just about every day.

The area is surrounded by beautiful beaches but our favorite was Sandy Beach just a 3 minute walk down the road. The beach was very clean and quiet. The kids enjoyed riding the waves on boogie boards and looking for sea glass along the shore. The kids found plenty of beach toys and beach chairs in the garage.

If you are looking to eat out there are plenty of reataurants and bars around town. Kahuna Burger is excellent and they are located right down the road from the house across from Casa Verde. There is also a great little ice cream place in town.

For a 360 view of the surrounding areas climb up to the rooftop terrace where you can see Aguadilla in the distance, the surrounding beaches, and incredible sunsets.

Overall, we had an amazing time in Rincon and would highly recommend this property.

Thank you again,

The Roman Ceballos Family

Excellent Retreat!

  • 4 of 5

Rating as 4.8 only because the AC in the living room area was down and not repaired while we were there. However, maintaining the bedroom doors opened during the day with the AC running sufficed. Otherwise, we highly recommend this beautiful home. The house is well maintained and on beautiful grounds. The grounds are absolutely breathtaking particularly the back "parcela" with the avocado, mango and banana trees. We had guacamole hour daily, and as such named it "guactail hour" because the Medalla could not be excluded. The pool and whirlpool was a welcome for it was so hot each day. The daily rooster visits (all 20 of them) was a special treat as the "juey" that somehow came up to the back entrance level steps. Luis was available every time we called and took care of our needs immediately. Definitely would return! Gracias for contributing to our great vacation!
