The Vibe: You’ve arrived!
Enter the gated garden. See the crystal blue water ahead. Your Caribbean experience begins. Step through the iron gates and enter your new oceanfront home in Rincon, Puerto Rico. As you feel the sea breeze on your skin and look around, you sense that careful planning has taken place to assure optimal comfort and pleasure during your stay.
Step through the gate right onto the golden sand and you are on one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. You can stay out here all day under the cover of tall coconut palms. The calm waters of a beautiful swimming beach are now just steps away.
The building has all the style and quality typical to a 1950’s art deco beach villa. Geometric facades with dimensional pastel treatments enhance a sense of lightness and fun. Tropical influences blend with the “streamline moderne” design of Deco style to intone a laid back lifestyle.
The fully modernized interior offer all the comforts of home with lavish splashes of island color.
Our Neighborhood: The property is located in Estella. It is a colorful and friendly residential community. Estella is not a resort community. There are no casinos, board walks or seaside vendors. The beach is a wild beach, naturally beautiful with only minimal man-made influence. While there are very few large buildings along the beach, there are a few opportunities along your beach walks for food, drink and entertainment.
Here people live their daily lives and speak to each other. It is a friendly community located in a friendly small town. Here you can see free roaming chickens on the street, youngsters training their trotter ponies and neighbors just visiting. Life is slow is this beach community. This is a great place for small and large families and friends to gather for a quiet, fun time on the beach
For those that enjoy natural beauty, a laid back lifestyle, in a private noncommercial setting 8th and Ocean fits the bill. Our newly restored building offers all the conveniences of home.

Very nice beach house
We rented the all 6 rooms on the second floor of the villa. The communications with the owner were great. We arrived at the villa and met the manager, Wilson. We found the villa in great shape except for the floor. We thought the floor could have been swept and mopped better. Wilson said he could send the cleaners the next day in the morning and take care of it. The next morning they promptly did as promised.
The only other issue we had with this rental was the internet. The second day of our stay a thunderstorm knocked off the internet out. Wilson came over the next day in the morning and did a reset. However he was only able to reset the network for the lower villa. For the next 3 days we had no reliable service upstairs and no attempt was made to fix it even after complaining.
Even with the few issues I would recommend this property. The house is very comfortable and the beach is great. A little rocky but the water was clear. We would certainly consider coming back. Thanks!
great beach and perfect location!
The beach was gorgeous and the layout of the upper floor was perfect. The kitchen was not stocked well-only 4 spoons for ten people-and very little cook wear. The toilet and sink in one of the bathrooms didn't work and two of the televisions didn't work. Wilson responded quickly and was very helpful with highlights of the town and places to see except it took 2 days for the bathroom to be functional and the televisions not at all. Overall, we had a great time. Would love to come back. The area was very quiet and good for kids.
"At last we are able to respond to your very helpful list. In addition to items you mentioned, please be aware of other upgrades we have made. Here's what we have accomplished since your stay with us:
-all new pots and pans in each unit
-new glassware, plates, bowls, cups and flatware in each unit-2 per person
-new smoke detectors where needed
-new toasters and blenders, and coffee makers where needed
-1 new ac and maintenance on all units
-new loungers and beach chairs for each unit
-all new bed linens and pillows
-additional new lighting, towel bars and plantings throughout property
-new charcoal grills
-new floor mats at each villa entrance. Floors are swept and cleaned at each turnover but they may seem to need attention due to proximity to ocean and humidity that creates mildew in very short time(even 1 day after cleaning)
Again, we thank you for your attention and we look forward to your next visit. We remain anxious to make 8th and Ocean the best on the beach.
Perfect Family Getaway
The house was amazing. We booked it for a week and had about 16 Adults and 6 kids. Everyone had plenty of space. The neighborhood is easy to get around. The water is the perfect temperature and the kids had a great time snorkling. The house is very clean. Everything you need is there. The management is attentive and fix any issues propmtly.
The laundry service only being one day was a little tough as the towels were a little salty by day 5 but we managed. I also wish they would have changed the sheets more as they got very sandy but the adults maintained the rooms so they wouldnt get out of hand.
GREAT HOUSE and currently planning our 2016 trip. We wish the house was bigger so we could invite more people to join us.
Thank you Eileen, you really describe the property nicely, it is a great villa for large group! We hope to have you back soon!
We had the pleasure of staying in the two bedroom villa and really enjoyed our stay, it was one couple and a single adult. The place was completely outfitted with everything that you would need for your stay. The only thing we were lacking was a salt shaker which we could not find at the full service grocery store near by. The beach infront is perfect for wading in the water and long romantic walks along with beach.
Jim and his property manager were very courteous and prompt in responding to any reuests.
We were there for a surf trip and did leassons with Rincon Surf School so we spent most of our time at the surfing beaches. There is a few restaurants and the grocery store within walking distace but we drove every place else. Parking was fine..
Relaxing beach-front property; a great value for groups
Its hard to know where to start. I guess its just one word: Beachfront. The beach is a narrow strip of relaxation. The water is warm and while the water is not super calm, it is inviting and fun to be carried by the waves. The property includes grills, beach chairs to lounge on and many tables and chairs in the patio that overlook the water. Its nice not to have to lug your stuff into a bag or into a car in order to go to the beach. Lounging with your morning coffee on the beach is the best.
Rincon is a great mix of touristy/real town; it is more of a small sleepy beach community, so someone wanting an authentic and quiet/relaxing vacation is going to find it here.
The owner and the property manager were very laid back and very helpful with my annoying request to ship items to the property. They were accommodating.
The place itself boasts many bedrooms with a lot of privacy. The place itself is just as it appears on the video, very clean and inviting. Not 5-star fancy, but very nice with granite counter tops and great appliances and free wifi (better reception downstairs). As someone that loves to cook on vacation, the kitchen was well equipped. Bathrooms were on the small-side, but were very nice.
I rented the entire property. The smaller unit upstairs is cute and cozy. The downstairs was great because of the patio. The upstairs boasts an amazing view of the beach with a nice balcony and a great kitchen and dining space.
My guests had the best time and I recommend this as a place for a relaxing family vacation or romantic getaway.
Great house for a large family group.
We had 15 people including a 2 year old and the main downstairs and upstairs units were more than big enough. Plenty of space, nice beds and bathrooms. The beachfront is great for bodysurfing, snorkeling and watching the sunset, and with 5 artists in the group we made use of the lovely fine sand to make a huge sand village in front of the house for the baby! Restaurants and grocery in walking distance help a lot!
