Perfect Villas with spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Villa Lomas was wonderful. At arrival we were greeted by Alvaro and Bruce. They were very knowledgeable of the area and great host. We rented both villas since we were two couples. Both villas were impeccable, they had private comfortable bathrooms and spacious accommodations. One of the villas had a full kitchen with eating area. Both villas had doors adjacent to a magnificent wide and open balcony. The views of the ocean and sunsets were spectacular. The property it self if gorgeous. We took a tour with Alvaro of his beautiful garden. The pictures do not do this property justice. The villas are located just a few minutes from the English Rose, Steps beach and Road 413 which is one of the main roads to everything, so that was very convenient. Steps beach is one of the most sough after snorkeling beaches in Rincon. We go to Rincon often and I have to say this has been one of the most comfortable, peaceful and beautiful places we have ever stayed at. We would highly recommend staying at this property.

A Truly Wonderful Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was wonderful from the prompt emails booking our stay until the gate closing as we left for the last time. Alvaro and Bruce guided us in to their amazing property over the phone. Our room was spacious, charming, very clean and we had the most gorgeous view! Comfortable bed with nice linens. More than adequately stocked kitchen. Bruce's fantastic paintings as well as an assortment of their extensive art collection just made the place seem refreshingly outside of the box.

The pool is one of the prettiest and most serene pools I have ever had the pleasure of hanging out at - every bit as private as our room. Alvaro (and Bruce) gave us the most incredible guided tour of their gardens.

Steps Beach is just down the hill. The use of a washer and dryer was a nice surprise as well as beach chairs.

It was every bit as peaceful of a setting as we expected it to be. We highly recommend this beautiful place! And we are so very happy to have made such awesome new friends! Can't wait to see you again! All of our best wishes, Megan and Gregg Glick

Where to begin? Arrival would be a wonderful place to start. We were expertly guided into this private gated villa by both owners. While I was on the phone with Bruce, Alvaro was patiently waiting at the gate in the rain. We stopped our car in front of a beautiful courtyard where they both help us unload and welcomed us with a wine toast and tour of the apartment. It did not feel like an apartment. It was so private and spacious and conducive to outdoor life. The gardens at this Villa are magnificent and each plant was lovingly chosen and planted by the owner. Three acres of lush tropical paradise. While the days were busy with visiting various beaches, snorkel beach, swimming beach, surf beaches, sea glass hunt beaches, so many beaches, all from a three minute drive to a 40 minute drive. By night, many restaurants, beach bars, anything you want or just stay at home and cook and relax on the lovely veranda and listen to the variety of birds which also make magnificent sounds for sleeping. The apartment is well equipped for cooking and there is a farmers market on Sunday in town and a supermarket within a 5 minute drive. The best breakfast place in town is a very brief walk just outside your gate with a magnificent view of the ocean. The villa is decorated with the beautiful artwork of one of the owners. They are most gracious hosts who leave you to your privacy, yet willing to answer any questions at anytime.

Please do not hesitate to trust the the reservation process. Alvaro has it down to a science and the procedures are a little different than most. The PO Box mailing address is necessary as there is no mail delivery up the hill. It is for your safety as well as his, that a check be mailed in advance. Alvaro likes to speaks to his intended guests and I, too, felt better after having a conversation with him and his co-owner. I cannot say enough about the owners. They were delightful, engaging, interesting and wonderful to work with. I don't want to sell this place too well, because I want to keep my spot open to return. You cannot go wrong with this choice! Missing Rincon and our little piece of paradise already.

It's All True!

  • 5 of 5

I can be a bit skeptical when I see nothing but five stars in a review because it's hard to believe anything is perfect. Vacation getaways are especially dicey because there are so many high expectations, it's easy to be disappointed. In the case of Villa Lomas, however, it's safe to believe all the good press.

We booked the villa about two months before our stay and almost canceled because my husband suffered a shoulder injury. Though it meant we couldn't do as much as we originally hoped to do, we decided to stick with our plans, and we’re glad we did -- this was an incredibly fun and relaxing vacation, a largely thanks to Alvaro and Bruce and their wonderful villa.

The villa is obviously a labor of love, reflected indoors and outdoors. The gardens are magnificent and we spent over an hour with Alvaro learning about the countless varieties of plants and trees used to create a serene and gorgeous backdrop to the villa. Pictures don't do it justice. The house is also beautiful -- and spanking clean -- and the wide-open decks were perfect for winding down after a day at the beach (some conversation, wine, napping) or eating breakfast. The bed was comfortable, and the apartment had everything we needed if we wanted to cook (we kept it to a couple of breakfasts and morning tea), as well as bath and beach supplies. Really, there's nothing Alvaro and Bruce haven't thought of; it's pretty much just bring your clothes and you're set.

Alvaro and Bruce were gracious and thoughtful hosts, making suggestions we felt made the trip perfect. Considering my husband's injury, Alvaro suggested a beach not in our travel guide that was close by yet virtually private with calm waves that weren’t difficult to swim in. Their restaurant suggestions were a success and we also enjoyed sharing a glass of wine one evening and some morning coffee with them, learning more about them and appreciating the opportunity to see more of Bruce's art beyond what’s in the rental.

The location is a double-edged sword because it's on top of a hill, accessed by a winding, narrow road. That means it offers wonderful views (including an incredible rainbow one morning!) and the noise of the frogs at night (soothing to us). However, it's an intimidating drive at first. If you're planning to rent an SUV, reconsider because you likely won't need it and all the roads in Rincon are narrow. Pay attention and use your low gear to go up and down and you’ll be fine.

No question about it, we'll be back.

Relaxing Stay in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in Alvaro and Bruce's magnificent home for a little getaway following our wedding. Villa Lomas exceeded our expectations! The home is on the top of a hill, with stunning views of the ocean and lush gardens with hundreds of plants and trees that Alvaro and Bruce planted themselves and tend to. Alvaro even went out of his way to give us an extensive tour of the garden. The pool, which was entirely ours and private, was a wonderful treat. The pool was so clean (and had a waterfall) and was extremely refreshing.

The apartment itself opens out to a large beautiful terrace (also very private), and we spent most of our time out there. The terrace also has a barbeque, and we grilled one night while overlooking the amazing Rincon sunset. We brought our binoculars and were able to spot countless birds in the trees surrounding the villa, and at night, the coqui frogs reminded us that we were truly in nature.

The apartment itself was very clean had everything we needed and was decorated with Bruce's beautiful paintings. The bed also was very comfortable - we slept like babies. We cannot say enough about our stay, and as frequent world travelers, we place our stay at Villa Lomas among our favorite. Alvaro and Bruce were great hosts - accessible when needed but also respected our privacy.

The Villa also is a quick 10 minute drive from most things in Rincon, and only right down the hill from Steps Beach and some great restaurants. We will surely be back. Thank you Alvaro and Bruce for sharing your beautiful home with us!
