About Barry Rugg

I'm a college professor at New York University where I teach Chemistry. My wife Harriet is a retired elementary teacher and an aspiring photographer. We have 3 grown children and 5 grandchildren so far. My youngest son is not yet married but is engaged. We are a very close family and love to vacation together.

Barry Rugg purchased this villa in 2013

Why Barry Rugg chose Río Grande

May wife Harriet and I fell in love with Rincon seven years ago when we first stayed on Corcega beach in a condo apartment over Christmas vacation. We stayed in several other condos on Corcega beach for the next four years. Last year we couldn't find an apartment on Corcega and were lucky enough to find an available villa in Punta del Mar. We fell in love with the location and very soon decided to try and find a villa to own. We soon found Villa A-6 which was perfect for us in every way. Recently renovated by the previous owner but never used, very little work was required. We added a TV room, beautiful living room furniture, air conditioning on the living room/kitchen level. We love the way it all came out and I know you will fall in love with the villa.

What makes this villa unique

We've attempted to make staying in the villa as comfortable and easy as it could be. We decided to offer premium TV (HBO), WIFI internet, and VOI telephone. We have a new barbecue, new smart TV, DVR and DVD player. Punta del Mar offers (starting in January 2014) a pool, tennis courts and gym for use for a weekly fee of $100 for the villa independent of how many occupants.

Just what we needed!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely, well-maintained and clean home! The location was ideal (right on the beach, close to the pool and on the main highway of town). The owner and manager were extremely eager to help and answer questions, and the neighbors were delightful. This home provided all the extras we were looking for (BBQ grill, outdoor patio, beach toys & chairs, free Wi-Fi), and it was the perfect fit for our vacation.

Wonderful home-base

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The home was very clean and the beds were super comfortable. The walk to the beach was pleasant with amazing views. The pool was a close walk to the villa too! Barry was super helpful and helped us check in quickly even though we rented the villa the same day we checked in. Very comfortable for 8 people;)

Great Place, Exactly as Advertised

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful, with a great view of the beach from the roof deck. It is a short walk to a private beach, where there was a non-crowded surf break that we surfed most days. The house was very clean when we arrived and all of the beds were comfortable. The gated community that the property is in is right across the street from a great restaurant called Janeiro. We ate out around 4 of the 8 nights we were there and Janeiro was definitely our favorite spot. The property is a short 10-15 minute drive to all of the surf breaks on the west/south coast of Rincon (Maria's, Dogman's, Steps, Domes, etc). A bar/restaurant called Tamboo is just a short half mile walk along the beach from the house, which was nice when we wanted to go out and not have to worry about a designated driver/cab. Barry is a really nice guy and, if we had any issues, I'm sure he would have been very responsive and helpful. Fortunately, we did not. All in all, great vacation and great house!

Pictures and descriptions were accurate. Very clean with appropriate amenities. Barry was one of the most helpful owners I have ever rented from. I think we went to six different beaches in 7 days. Beaches with waves ,beauty, swimming - your choice. Snorkeled, surfed ,SUP, boogie boarded, body surfed and went out to eat a lot. The Villa is in a very quiet community, but just 10 minutes from town. The beach our front is pretty and great for walks.

Absolutely amazing! 6 stars

  • 5 of 5

I am a local from the metro area and wanted to escape the hustle and bustle. The current pictures do not do the home justice. It is a luxury home set in a luxury complex with luxury amenities. The furnishings are new, high end and very comfortable. During our stay we only went to the beach located in the complex because it had a tide pool that was perfect for the kids and for sitting in the water with beach chairs. We hung out on the roof a lot because it is enormous and has a stunning view of the ocean. Barry is an awesome person and helped make the stay as comfortable as possible. We Will be returning.
