Overview

Puerto Rico Villa Rental Photos and Description

This 4 bedroom villa sleeps 10

Imagine yourself, on a Caribbean beach, the turquoise flat ocean flat like glass. Your kids playing in the swimming pool, your legs propped up watching the pelicans fly by, the smell of bar-b-que drifting through the air in the privacy of this home you've rented for your tropical beach vacation.

Villa Orleans is a rustic beach front home on the western side of Puerto Rico, in a small lazy surfing town called Rincon.

This beach front home has all the amenities you need, for a home away from home. Its bedrooms open up to balconies overlooking the peaceful Caribbean Beach.

This is Villa Orleans. This Puerto Rico beach front villa is designed for your perfect family beach vacation.

Beach wedding? We have a wooden deck overlooking the Caribbean sea, and a wedding planner that can prep for 25 guests. (We are a small facility and do not do weddings for over 30 persons.)

Yoga retreats? We have the only beach front yoga deck on the island.

Villa Orleans Compound : Villa Orleans consists of the beach front villa, with 4 bedrooms with 5 bathrooms.

Video WalkThroughs: We have video walk throughs of the villa. A simple search for Rincon Beachfront Villa on Youtube will bring up our video channel.

Write to us and we'll send you the videos.

Weddings? Villa Orleans is the perfect place for intimate weddings. We have a couple of wedding planners that take care of all logistics so your most important event in your life will be the most elegant and memorable.

About luis ortiz

I am from New Orleans and back in 1990 I visited Rincon Puerto Rico. I fell in love with the ocean and did not return. I became a diver, spelunker, kayaker and surfer. I taught English for 15 years and after I moved to the mountains we turned our home into a rental.

luis ortiz purchased this villa in 1987

Why luis ortiz chose Puerto Rico

In New Orleans we'd always escape to the Mississippi Gulf coast. We had a home in Waveland. I enjoyed the beach and sand, but on the water was always murky because of silt from the Mississippi River.

When we stumbled upon this villa it was abandoned. There was a tiny For Sale sign and we quickly called and scooped up the property.

What makes this villa unique

You can only get closer to the ocean by floating in a boat. The waves crash against the house and at times come into the balcony.

The ocean is healing. The ocean brings peace and tranquility.

Great place marred by issues the final day

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful experience in Rincon at Villa Orleans. The setting was beautiful and the place suited the size and make up of our group. Overall the experience was amazing. But there were a couple issues near the end of our stay.

We were told that no one else would be allowed to rent the second house during our stay. Yet there were a couple of women there on Saturday night. That didn't bother me, though, until Sunday morning when more people started showing up at 6 am waking us up. They woke up all nine people in the house and were incredibly invasive on our final day in paradise. They unpacked their car and I believe they had another car parked on the road. They were noisy and settled themselves down on the yoga deck to sleep. Some wandered around near the front door and some even had the nerve to stretch out on one of the two deck chairs near the house. (As someone else said here, there needs to be more deck chairs.)

It was our last day and we felt uncomfortable walking down to the beach because we had to pass through all of them sleeping! They even went through a pile a shells and stones we had been collecting that were out on the grill counter. We wanted to spend a quiet morning on the beach, sitting in the sun, etc but instead felt rushed out. They were like vultures waiting til we left.

My brother in law texted Luis but he did nothing to correct the situation. Left us feeling angry and unsettled.

Great Family Get Away

  • 4 of 5

We brought our entire family for 8 days and loved every minute of it. The beautiful private peach and the secluded feel of the property were the high points. The town of Rincon was perfect for shopping and dining out. Suggested improvements would be to have more comfortable furniture in the main room in the house that can seat a larger party in comfort. Would also think more comfortable outdoor furniture to take advantage of the beautiful ocean views would enhance the overall experience. The owner was extremely responsive whenever we called and when talking with him he has a passion for western Puerto Rico. My family had a great time and this trip will go down as one of our best family vacations.

A magical paradise

  • 5 of 5

I just organized a yoga retreat to Villa Orleans, and we had an exceptional experience. Every night we fell asleep to the sound of the ocean in the background. The grounds are beautiful, and the space where we practiced yoga, under a canopy overlooking the ocean. You can walk right into the ocean off the property, and the water is clear and refreshing.

I can't say enough positive things about Villa Orleans and Luis, who did everything to make our stay enjoyable.

We will definitely go back!

Beautiful Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Spent 9 nights here recently. The weather was unbelievable and the property was well worth the price paid! We had 20 of our family together for most of our stay. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a ocean side retreat! I mean u can't beat the Atlantic pounding the foundation of this home every night as u drifted off into dream land!

Great Place to Relax and Restore

  • 5 of 5

Villa Orleans is a beauty! The location right on the ocean, and I mean right on top of it, is an experience you will never find at a hotel resort. The waves crashing sound in the evening and night and the smell of the ocean in my bedroom was an unparalled experience. We had an 18 person yoga retreat and it was a great place to relax and restore. Rincon provides plenty of activites for those that like an active vacation. Luis was wonderful!! A true friend the whole week long helping us with whatever we needed and providing us with great information and history on the area. Geo and Albert helped us with activites and made our stay very easy. I would highly recommend Villa Orleans for your next group vacation!

Wedding in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Villa Orleans is absolute paradise!

My husband and I stayed there with our families for a week in October and got married right on the grounds. We had the most amazing time and the owner, Luis, was there to assist us with anything that we needed, from dining suggestions to random items that we needed at the villa.

My father in law loved it so much that he went back for six weeks over the winter and plans to do that every year!

We couldn't be happier with our experience at the Villa Orleans. We would highly recommend it for big groups or families, as it is a lot of fun to have people in the villa, apartment, and cottage. Can't wait to go back - thanks Luis!
