About the property

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 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 Spring Break Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family made the trip from Texas to Rincon for Spring Break. Your condo was better than the pictures on HomeAway, tons of room, very clean and much, much more. Everything we needed for the beach was there. We enjoyed the entire week and can't wait to come back.

Thank you for sharing your lovely Rincon beach house.

Relaxing Oasis in Beautiful Rincon

  • 5 of 5

The villa was perfect for our two families (4 adults + 4 children). The villa was spacious and had enough room for everyone to spread out. Since it was located in a gated community, we always felt safe. You can’t help but feel safe as you drive down the immaculately kept private road to the villa location.

The kitchen was well equipped with everything you'll need. We cooked a few breakfast meals and had enough space to enjoy breakfast together. The nearest cafe, Dulcis Vita Bakery and Coffee Shop (which received stellar ratings on Yelp), is only a 5-minute drive away, located in the plaza of Rincon. The Dads morning routine was to pick up a quick espresso to start the day. In the villa, the kids loved the bunk beds. The loft area is perfect for the pre teens to teens who want a little privacy if you have a mix of ages.

The beach was located just a few feet away from the front door. The great thing about the beach was the tide pool which is protected by a reef. The water was relatively calm and the depth was a consistent 3 to 3.5 ft. It was perfect for the kids to play without any worries. The kids enjoyed playing in the beautiful sand and came back with a handful of seashells and sea glass for art and crafts. The best part was the privacy. We often had the beach all to ourselves.

The pool was also walking distance from the villa. We used the pool a handful of times and often had the entire pool just to ourselves. The water was clean and the view of the ocean from the pool was spectacular. The kids enjoyed chasing two giant iguanas which were sunbathing on the concrete near the pool. It should be noted the pool cost was $100 for the week. Since the facilities were well maintained, I felt it was a solid purchase.

Although the villa is located in a private gated community, there are great restaurants like ‘The Beach House’ and ‘Red Flamboyan’ just a short drive away. I’m craving the surfer’s omelette at ‘The Beach House’ as I’m finishing this review.

The memories we made at the villa will last us a lifetime. Thank you, Tim and Margaret, for sharing your beautiful vacation home. It was by far our best stay in Puerto Rico (and we’ve visited over a half dozen times in the past).

Very pleased

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Puerto Rico and I have rented through VRBO several times. For the most part I have been very happy with the rentals but there is the occasional home that I am disappointed in. This was not one of those. Once we arrived to the Villa, I was very happy with how close it was to the ocean. The Villa itself was clean and stocked with everything we needed. We felt safe here and the neighbors were great. I think the description Tim gave of the villa and how far it is from the beach/ocean was accurate. The view from the 3rd floor was amazing! It was nice having the boogie boards, towels and chairs for the beach. The only issue we had was the water pressure. We noticed that if more than 1 person took a shower the water pressure dropped way down. Once we figured that out we just made sure we rotated showers which was not a big deal. The pool as Tim mentions is really not anything you want to spend time at, but as Tim also mentions, why spend time at the pool when you have that magnificent beach/ocean right out in front of you. We thought we had an issue, which turned out to be a non issue, but Tim was very quick to respond when I contacted him on this. It was nice having the restaurants right down the beach. We walked down the beach 3 different nights for dinner. The Tamboo Bar was ok, the Burger Bar was pretty good and the sushi at the Pool Bar was awesome. We even stopped at the chicken stand down the street, which was very good. Overall I was very pleased with the Villa and Tim. We would definitely come back here.

Worth every penny!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 nights at this villa and it was a dream vacation! More than enough beds for our group and the house had everything you could need for the beach! It really is right on the water. The pictures don't do the place justice! I will never rent another hotel for vacation because a home rental is a million times more convenient and saves so much money having a kitchen and beach towels, chairs, coolers etc. You truly will not be disappointed in your stay here!

Owner's Response: We couldn't agree more, with over 2,800 sq. ft. being right next to the ocean is a dream. Having everything you could possibly need for your vacation is provided and it makes us happy when we make our guests happy. Just come after picking up you food and beverages-you'll never want to leave. Thank you for choosing to stay with us.

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.
