|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
2 bedrooms: Master with queen size bed and private bathroom, another bathroom in the hall, 2nd bedroom with twin bunk beds (two twins) and one queen size bed. 1 Full size futon in the living room. Balcony next to the pool, kitchen & laundry, a/c, ceiling fans, 2 off-street parking, cable TV, internet, beach chairs, etc. Fully furnished!! Located in a First level, beautiful beach view. 10 seconds to the beach exit.
We got there early and we're able to use the pool. The apt. Was cleaned and linen replaced, with towels, toiletries etc... We were a big group and everyone fit comfortably, the pool was right outside the porch area. Kids had a blast, they had more fun in the pool than the beach which was right across the street. Excellent I would definitely recommend to anyone and would stay there again.
Pros... great location' ' very simple check in check out
Cons. Poor or none housekeeping.. apartment seem that was not cleaned completly before we got in . Filthy tubs...
BothToilets got clogged frequently
Only furniture in living area ( one sofa) was pretty much beat up. Linens and towels seem fairly old
I was a tiny bit wary of this rental after reading one poor review but we found that our stay was quite pleasant. When we first arrived, we felt that the kitchen wasn't adequately stocked. For example, we were a group of 6 and there were only 4 spoons, not enough pots & pans, etc... The next morning, my husband contacted the owner, Frankie, and made a list of items we would like to see in the kitchen. I was pleasantly surprised when he arrived at the condo that very afternoon with ALL the items on our wish list. INCLUDING a larger coffee pot (rather than the hotel sized one that was originally there)- which was really above and beyond our expectations.
The condo is located in a pretty convenient area in Rincon. It is one block away from Harbor restaurant (great) and about two-three block walk to Cambija (even better-try the fish tacos!!). On Thursday evening, there is live music and an artisan fair in the center of Rincon that you can walk to. The beach is just across the street. There isn't a view from the apartment, which would have been terrific - but, the unit is right next to the pool - a feature that my kids LOVED! We found that we were able to bring the bar stools out into the common area to watch the sunset. Alternatively, you could just walk across the street to the beach to watch. The pool is small but we were almost the only people there so it felt like our own private pool.
As for cons, the unit is a bit small for a group of 6. I would say that the furnishings weren't terribly comfortable and there wasn't really enough for a group our size but, to be honest, we spent most of our time at the beach or pool. Totally fine for 2 adults and 2 kids. It could use some additional chairs for outdoor seating. If that sort of thing is important to you, you might want to contact Frankie prior to booking. The second bedroom needs a better storage system (some drawers were broken) - I contacted him, after our stay, because the broken drawer was a bit hazardous/could fall out on you. He said he was going to rectify the situation so you could also verify that in advance if you wish. He aims to please.
One previous post mentioned that the unit wasn't clean and the presence of bugs. This sort of freaked me out but I'm happy to say I didn't have any bug sightings! Yay! I felt the unit was clean upon arrival. It would have been helpful if the unit was stocked more cleaning supplies in order to upkeep during the stay.
This was our 5th stay in Rincon. First time to stay at this place. What a disappointment, many things were broken including the sliding door in the bedroom (we noticed other apartments had broom handles wedged in the sliding door to keep it shut)and the fan over the range did not work. No hot water and the building alarms would go off in the middle of the night. No phone numbers on the door to call for assistance. We only at Frankie's number and much of the time he would not answer. The bedding was in trash bags when we arrived including the pillows and towels. Some were moldy and stained. They did bring us pillows and towels after we called to express our concerns about the conditions. Don't plan to use the top bunk as there were screws missing, not at all safe. We decided to return to San Jaun early because we were getting no sleep because of the alarms. We were told the batteries were defective so they just took the batteries out and left the alarms disabled. Frankie agreed via Homeaway email to reimburse the nights stay which he never did, I contacted him several times after our stay and he did not reply. We love Rincon but have found different accommodations for our January stay. Please reconsider if you are considering booking this. If you are staying here bring your own cleaning supplies and ant traps and do not leave any food on the counter as it will be covered with ants. I think the one thing that I always will remember is the half used bar of soap sitting on the bath tub when we arrived.
We were especially disappointed as this was the first time we had brought our daughter and grandchildren to Rincon. We did not book this place expecting perfection just a clean safe place to stay, which we did not have. Shame on you for agreeing in writing to reimburse us and not doing it.
This is a great apartment location across the street from the beach. It is the easiest access to the pool in the 24 unit complex. The pool is 10 feet out the rear door and rarely used by the 4 or 5 families that live in the condos. We thought we had our own private pool! Everything was as posted on the VRBO website and we thought the price was reasonable. The only things we wished is that it was cleaned better and there were more towels and fresher linens. Also we never figured out how or if the cable tv service was working? But we stayed so busy and we didn't come to Rincon to watch TV!!!
This was our first visit to Puerto Rico and we weren't sure what to expect. Upon our arrival we were happy to see that the condo had all of the amenities we'd expect to make our stay a comfortable one. The kitchen is large and has all of the appliances we needed to whip up breakfast each morning before we ventured out to the beaches. Every room is air conditioned. The bathrooms are what you'd expect. Our only real complaint is with the TV. What few channels there were, none were in English. Not a major problem but it would have been nice to wind down at the end of the day watching a little TV.
The location of the condo is perfect. There is a beach directly across the street which is perfect for working on your tan, swimming or just enjoying the beautiful view. There are several restaurants, bars and stores within walking distance. The area is very lively with lots of music that played late into the evenings on the weekend. The locals are friendly and patient with my terrible Spanish. Fortunately, many speak English and communicating was not a problem. If you're into surfing (which is why we picked this part of the Island) there are several surfing beaches within a 5 to 10 minute drive. My boys were not disappointed.
When we were planning our trip, anytime I had a question or concern, Frankie (the owner) replied quickly with answers we needed via email and phone. He was terrific and made sure that we had an enjoyable stay. The next time we travel to Puerto Rico, we'll definitely be calling Frankie. Another thing we really liked about the property is that it is surrounded by a privacy wall with locking doors and a remote controlled gate to enter the parking lot which provides plenty of space to park.
I'd highly recommend this condo to anyone who is looking to stay in this part of Puerto Rico. I'm sure you will not be disappointed. Thank you Frankie.
