love this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this villa and Rincon. This time it was summer and the ocean and pools were so warm it was incredible! Manuel met us at the villas and showed us how everything worked and then presented us with a bottle of champagne, chocolates and fresh fruit! The place is huge and completely equiped with everything you need. There are guide books galore plus our hosts know Rincon since the sixties when surfing was discovered in Rincon. They recommended about ten restaurants plus a place up in the hills called La Loma de Yiyo for local drinks and pastelillos. Please be careful around the small narrow roads of Rincon. Our favorite place was breakfast down by the hotel beach. An outside terrace overlooking the turquoise water! Really a five star experience for us and we have travelled to places in Asia and Greece and this villa are really unique and so close to Houston for us.

we highly recommend you stay with these wonderful hosts!

Gorgeous Property with Amazing Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I attended a wedding at the Horned Dorset, and the groom recommended that we stay at the Villas. I was so happy that we had the opportunity to wake up in the mornings in our beautiful villa. The place was elegantly decorated. The photos accurately depict the property, but believe me, you'll love it even better in person! I felt like I had a luxurious home in paradise for those couple of days. Spacious living, a splash pool right outside the living room, and I can't forget the amazing infinity pool steps away from the villa!

What made our vacation even better was hanging out with the hosts, Manuel and Isabel. We got to chat with them as we relaxed in the infinity pool. And if it weren't for them, we wouldn't have discovered the local hotspots for delicious food! We even ran into them at the restaurant and shared some AMAZING fish tacos and curry fries! They are such a warm and welcoming couple.

This property is conveniently located next to a beach, but also close to other popular beaches and surfing areas.

I would definitely stay here again!

Favorite Place in the World!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to these villas at least 6 times in the past few years, and they never disappoint! The views are gorgeous, the architecture and the fixtures are amazing, everything is a good or better than it looks in the pictures. Manuel and Isabel are the best hosts you'll ever find, and I can say enough abt this place.

Owner's Response: We loved having you as our guests with your beautiful family! You will need a longer stay next time in order to do all that you had planned....maybe that fishing trip is at the top of the list. Lets plan on it!
