About Joe DeStephan

I'm an avid surfer and have been going to Rincon, PR since 1991. I fell in love with Rincon's incredible waves, warm water, and relaxed, friendly vibe. Come experience it for yourself, it's truly an amazing experience.

Joe DeStephan purchased this house in 2005

Why Joe DeStephan chose Puntas

Rincon is very accessible from the US, with the closest airport being in Auguadilla, only 35 minutes away (18 miles). Jet Blue, Continental, and Spirit, all serve Auguadilla (Airport Code is BQN). If you can't fly into BQN, San Juan Airport (SJU) is an easy two hour drive on Route 22 to Route 2 to Route 115 to Rincon.

What makes this house unique

At the bottom of the hill is Sandy Beach, a great beach for catching some surf, swimming, kayaking, walking, finding shells, or just relaxing and enjoying the sun. You can walk to the beach in 10 minutes, or drive there in 2. Parking is easy. Plus there are many bars and restaurants all within walking distance.

Excellent relaxing place!

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed at Surf View Villa for a weekend and we had a marvelous time! The house was very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. Our kids were entertained with the ping pong table while us adults relaxed at the upper deck and enjoyed the morning as well as the afternoon views. The decks could have been better cleaned before guest arrival. There were a lot of webs and spiders along the staircase and we had to further clean the outside table. We would have used a water hose but couldn't find the cleaning supplies easily. A tour of the house or a welcome guide would have made things easier(we found the washer and dryer the day we were leaving). That aside, the administrator was very nice. There was a minor thing with the faucet and he took notes of that and our suggestions. We would love to stay there again.

Excellent place

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 11 people on a surf trip here in March of 2017. The house had plenty of room to accommodate our large group and the outside living space downstairs was awesome. The house had all of the ammenities we needed and was very clean. I would recommend surf view villa for any large group and would definitely stay there again. Excellent experience.

Beautiful experience in Rincon

  • 5 of 5

We went on a weekend getaway (5 couples) and stayed at the villa. The place is spacious and there are different areas in the house where we could spend time to talk and relax. All the rooms were in excellent conditions and the place was very clean. The beach is just 2 mins away, there are many local restaurant in the area, and the manager was very accesible. The villa is fully equipped, all we had to bring was the food and our clothes. We would definitely recommend this place to more fam and friends.
