Overview

Puerto Rico Villa Rental Photos and Description

Closest Row Of Villas To The Sea At Punta Del Mar Beach

Our vacation home contains a master (king-sized bed) boasting excellent ocean/beach views and private bathroom with a large walk-through closet/changing area. The second bedroom (queen-sized bed) boasts the identical great ocean views and doubles as a 'second' master bedroom. The third bedroom for the children consists of two sets of bunk beds (4 twin-size beds) along with a spiral staircase to a loft where 2 twin-sized beds and a pull-out twin-size trundle bed are located. There is enough sleeping accommodations for your entire vacationing families where 2 couples can have their own rooms and the children have their own beds. Outside the master bedroom/bath suite there is a full hallway bathroom and laundry room. The ground floor consists of an overly-sized living room, dining room and den-all with great views of the ocean. The kitchen is very large and well-equipped with all the necessary cooking and bake ware you'll need. There are hotel-quality towels for bathing and the beach provided. The den contains a 42 inch LCD television with cable TV, Net-Flix, a surround sound and DVD player and there is a CD player equipped with an I-Pod station-so bring your DVD's and music. Wi-Fi is provided inside the villa. The third floor patio measuring close to 800 sq. ft. (partially covered) provides seating for everyone to enjoy the beautiful sunsets of Rincon. There is also a first floor patio for barbequing. Large rooms and plenty of sleeping areas along with terrific views of this ocean/beach-front villa make this property truly unique. The vacation home is located inside the 145 acre, man-gated private community of Punta del Mar Beach Village where you and your loved ones will experience rest and relaxation, quiet times and tranquility, cleanliness of our home along with peace of mind that your children are safe and close-by. The season tide pool allows for younger ones to swim without the worry of big waves crashing at the shore. There are a couple of good-quality boogie boards for your enjoyment. The villa is located along some of the best areas of beach for sea-glass collecting which the children will love to bring back home to show their friends. Much artwork and jewelry is made with sea-glass. The serpentine-shaped swimming pool is open. Use of the pool (payable at the office) is $5 per day, per person (10+ years of age) or $100 per week for everyone staying. The pool is optional; you do not have to pay if you do not use it.

Strolling along the beach towards the sunset to well-known restaurants such as Casa Islena and Tamboo for lunch or dinner are short 5-15 minute walks. Located on the northern side of Rincon, east of Sandy beach, provides the terrific surf which has made Rincon the tourist attraction it has become. The village at Punta del Mar provides the relaxation for a well-deserved vacation while still being close to the vacationing hot-spots. Like to walk/jog? How about the close to a mile-long driveway off Rt. 115.

About Tim & Margaret Gill

Maggie and I met on a Long Island beach when we were just teenagers in 1986. We both grew up in New York and raise our family there. We celebrated our Silver Anniversary in July of 2011. We have a couple of terrific children, I inspect buildings for a living and Maggie drives a school bus. When we're not working, we love to get away to our future retirement home in Rincon where we've got the pleasure of making some real nice friends over the years in and around our Puerto-Rican home. We enjoy getting away from it all whenever we can on one of those nightly JetBlue flights from JFK straight into Aguadilla-then it's only about a 25 minute drive to our vacation home's front door.

Tim & Margaret Gill purchased this villa in 2005

Why Tim & Margaret Gill chose Puerto Rico

After several years of traveling the Caribbean in search for a vacation home, our search led us to Rincon, Puerto Rico where the weather is terrific and swimming in the ocean during any months is great. To wake up and immediately view the ocean/beach for the bedroom is truly a paradise on earth.

What makes this villa unique

Ocean views are present form the master and second bedrooms along with the living and dining rooms. Our villa is located in the first row of buildings along the seaside in this gated community. You can walk down the beach to Casa Islena or Tamboo/Beside the Pointe (10-15 minutes). Located along a stretch of beach known for some of the best sea-glass collecting anywhere.

Awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

I can't describe enough how wonderful this villa is. The owners were wonderful to work with. Our flight arrived in the wee hours of the morning, and as the unit was ready, we were able to go straight to the house. It never felt crowded even thought there were 9 people in our party-the youngest being 15. The house was perfect and wonderfully spacious...plenty of room to relax and beds for everyone. The views from the master, 2nd bedroom and rooftop patio were extraordinary and we were just steps from the beach. You see exactly what you are getting in the pictures on the website. Rincon was a lovely area, and being able to use the resources and information provided by Tim the owner and Kenny the property manager were priceless. We were able to explore the area and found great restaurants with their guidance and suggestions. We will definitely stay again and recommend this property hands down over any others if you plan to visit Puerto Rico. Paradise!

Owner's Response: Thank you. The spacious villa is just terrific; as you can see why we purchased the property back in 2005 after buying our other villa (listing # 407429) the year earlier. Margaret & I saw this villa while vacation and did everything we could to purchase this one. It is exceptional and right at the water's edge. We couldn't have asked for a better home in any better location plus being located in the gated community gives us complete piece of mind while there or back in the states. The views you mentioned are excellent and relaxing and having the large 3rd floor patio with the western exposure makes for terrific ocean and sunset gazing. It was our pleasure to share our tropical vacation home with you and your family. Mucho gracias.

We had a nice stay at this property. Our only complaint was the pool but Tim was so nice to help us handle that situation.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this great house over spring break. The place is clean, roomy, comfortable, and very safe. I loved the spacious kitchen and the top notch fridge. The beach is right by the house, you can walk to it in under a minute. This is a secluded, quiet, peaceful community. The house has everything you might need, including tons of beach towels, linens, china, etc. We like to cook, and we had everything we needed. The rooftop terrace is a real treat at night as you can really see the stars in all their glory. The owner is readily accessible. I had to contact him due to a problem with the wifi connection, and he was very prompt and helpful. I would definitely return.

Marvelous get away vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Magnifica from 4/9 to 4/17, 2016, and a wonderful visit it was. The villa is just as pictured and described, beautiful, spacious and comfortable. We have no negatives to report. Our 3 generation family of 8 enjoyed this home for many reasons. This is a nicely furnished home and decorated with a welcoming beach theme. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped for food prep, and we put the gas grill to good use. The open first floor plan offered space to spread out and never felt crowded. We appreciated the start up paper products and cleaning supplies. The bedrooms were comfortable and bathrooms were spotlessly clean. There were lots of bath and beach towels, and a very nice laundry room. The rooftop patio was a huge plus. Morning coffee, evening dinners, gorgeous views, spectacular sunsets, amazing star gazing. Only a two minute walk, with easy beach access a wonderful beach and a warm tidal pool for all to enjoy. Beach toys, coolers, beach chairs were put to good use. We snorkeled on Steps Beach, surfed within view of the villa, enjoyed the pool(it could use some shade supplying umbrellas), visited the Caves and enjoyed dinners at Cambija, la Copa Llena, Tamboo and Jacks.

Tim was a pleasure to work with. He answered every text promptly and was a wealth of information.

If you want a restful, relaxing and beautiful island vacation, Tim's villa is the place for you. Thank you Tim.

Perfect vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Tim and Margaret for providing us with first rate accommodations for our first, but not last, trip to Rincon. Several months ago my family of four, along with another family of four, decided to plan a week vacation in Rincon. After contacting travel agents and conducting numerous internet searches, we decided to contact renters through HomeAway. Shortly after inquiring about the villa, we were contacted by Tim and were satisfied enough with his responses that we decided to book Hosienda Magnifica.

Tim and Margaret provided us with a wealth of information regarding the local area, attractions, restaurants, grocery stores, and very detailed driving directions from San Juan prior to our arrival. Tim was very prompt with all responses to any inquiries. Upon arrival, we discovered the villa was exactly as described, well stocked, and the photos provided accurately depicted the unit. Four adults, along with four teenagers, comfortably vacationed for the week in the villa. The location was ideal for us, steps from the beach, close enough to town and other activities, yet secluded and peaceful.

I will be in touch with Tim and Margaret for future rentals unless, of course, I decide to purchase my own unit. Thanks again.

There are plenty of activities in and around the Rincon area. There is also a small marina in Rincon for half and full day boating, diving and snorkeling trips. There are whale watching trips during the winter months and whales can often be seen from our beach just outside the front door of from the third floor patio during whale watching season (January-March). You can walk to restaurants like Janeiro's (across from the complex entrance) Casa Islena (a 8 minute walk down the beach-towards the sunset) and Tamboo-Beside the Pointe a popular restaurant/bar-a 12-15 minute walk down the beach featuring live music on the weekends.

Kenny our property manager is there to help you find terrific places to visit, eat and drink and can also arrange for an in-house massage as well as the scheduling of surfing lessons.
