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 Puerto Rico

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.

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.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

My group had a wonderful stay at Surf View Villa. Joe was communicative and there was always someone available to address any problems (there weren't any) as the site manager lives down the street. Rooms well kept. Great deck and grill. Fantastic view of the ocean from the front and the woods from the back. Kitchen has everything you will need. The North beach is walking distance and the famous West beaches are a short ride away. Highest review for this great property.

Wonderful home and location is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Six friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Surf View Villa. Plenty of room for everyone and a very comfortable stay. The house offers great features. The kitchen is perfect to prepare meals as well as the grill on the top porch. The hammocks make for a great sleep area and the ping pong table was perfect for a couple friendly competitions. The views off the front and back of the house were amazing to walk out and see in the morning. We spent time at the incredible beaches rat the bottom of the hill and found a few good watering holes as well. Joe was very friendly and had great suggestions for things to do and places to go. Elier also was very friendly and had no problem answering any questions. Thanks again Joe for helping make our trip unbelievable. We will return!!

Great House, Great Location, Great Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a stay at Surf View Villa and I have to say it was the perfect house. My family spent Christmas there this year and could not have picked a better spot for the 8 of us. The location is great, just a short walk down the hill to the beach, and the view is pretty nice to take in over your morning cup of coffee. Joe and Wilson were extremely hospitable, and Wilson was just a phone call away if anything came up. I would highly recommend this house to anyone considering it.
