About Melinda Ferraro

We live in Madison Wisconsin but try to get to Rincon as much as possible. Friends have come to stay and bought property here. Come discover the magic.

Melinda Ferraro purchased this villa in 2002

Why Melinda Ferraro chose Puerto Rico

We've always dreamed of living on the ocean. In 2002 we stayed at a friend's condo on another Rincon beach for spring break. We walked by our property on this beach that was just constructed and fell in love with it. There were no high rise hotels or condo's on the beach and there were plenty of great restaurants and things to do in the area. Our daughters love the beach and it attracts all ages. Lots to do for young adults and parents. The people here are very friendly. Puerto Rico is exotic but is a territory of the US so no passport is required, money is the same and the real estate laws are very similar. I'm a realtor and can work well from my Puerto Rico 'home office' because we are well connected with cell phone reception and internet service.

What makes this villa unique

You can walk to several great restaurants and bars so it's nice to have that convenience. The views are exceptional, I think the best in Rincon, so we hate to leave the place once we get there. We love to dine on the roof top terrace and watch the moon & stars. We're on a peninsula on the farthest western point of Puerto Rico so you have interesting panoramic views. We look out on the Aguadilla peninsula in the distance. The sunsets are amazing! We love to walk the beach, some of it stretches along DNR owned property with no homes, and find interesting sea glass and shells. Most of all we love to relax and just take in the sun and watch the waves stack up and roll in.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

The best view on Sandy Beach. Loved listening to the sound of the waves and waking up to an ocean view. The property has a supply of beach chairs, beach umbrella, boogie boards, snorkel equipment and ice chests. Also, our kids learned to surf in front of the Villa. "Road to Happiness" located next door was super friendly and helpful. Erica and Ryan from Kare Management were super helpful! They were readily available, answered all our questions and provided good restaurant recommendations. They even helped us with "Noche de San Juan" which we had no idea about! We'll be back and plan on renting both the 1st and 3rd floors. Thanks for a truly memorable experience!

My Third Visit to Paradise on Sandy Beach...

Love it there! It didn't disappoint. Had a great time with my girlfriend and 2 adult children. We really like the area. There is so much to do and people are very friendly. The kids loved the surfing and we took long walks on the beach every day. Had some great meals at restaurants that were within walking distance. The setting couldn't be more beautiful right on the beach. We especially loved star gazing from the rooftop and watching the full moon rise. If you are looking to create some memories and do a little family bonding, I'd highly recommend a vacation at Paradise.

I recently stayed at this beautiful property at Rincon, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My husband and I traveled there with my sister and her husband. The condo was perfect for the four of us but could easily have handled another couple. The condo was very nicely furnished and had everything we needed for the few meals we ate in the condo. There were several restaurants close by and the meals were excellent. Actually we had dinner at one restaurant twice because we enjoyed it so much! There were many activities nearby, but late in the afternoon and early in the morning it was such a treat to watch the surfers in the waves just off our porch. This apparently is a known surfers haven and we had the opportunity to watch many excellent surfers. This was my second trip to Rincon and I hope to return to this lovely relaxing spot in Puerto Rico!

3rd visit to Rincon -- Exceptional!

  • 5 of 5

Paradise at Sandy Beach is exactly that! The condo is beautiful. On humid evenings the air conditioning was very much appreciated, but the ocean breezes never ceased to cool us down either on the rooftop or in the condo with many windows to open and let the breeze blow through. Only one night did we feel the need to drive to a restaurant. So many great choices were just a block or two away! Rincon has beautiful beaches and one of the most time consuming things we did was watching the surfers outside our windows! Also taking long walks up the beach to Aguada and collecting several baggies of sea glass, and down the beach utilizing some nearby paths into the city for lunch. A special event was a momma whale and baby just off the shore, jumping out of the water to greet some divers who were close by as the whales passed through! It was a spectacular sight! We enjoyed the farmer's market and were lucky enough to see the St Patrick's Day Parade on Thursday evening after an enjoyable time at the farmer's market and craft fair. You have a very well supplied condo and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Fun condo close to the action and the best beach in Rincon

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in December. There were 7 people in our party and the condo was spacious enough for us all to enjoy our time. After reading the reviews we were concerned about the noise level at night and the swimming conditions. We were happy we tried for ourselves!

The noise at night was minimal. We noticed it for about 5 minutes after the bars let out on maybe three nights. I had brought ear plugs but didn't use them at all. I would recommend bringing a eye mask if you like to sleep in a dark because the rooms let in a lot of natural light, great during the day though!

Lots of things are walkable... Tamboo a great place to eat and get a drink albeit a bit pricy. The crowd here tended to be 35+ which I enjoyed though. The other bar down the road a few more steps had good burgers and the crowds tended to be a bit rowdier and a bit younger crowd. The pool sushi bar up the street a bit was amazing and had great food! The flamboyant? not sure exactly but a bit more ways up the street had some of the best food and great prices!

As far as swimming goes.... This is the best beach hands down anywhere!!! We went to tons of other beaches in Puerto Rico and Rincon this is the best. The waves are wonderful for surfing, boogie boarding, body surfing, jumping, and just swimming in. I do not consider myself an amazing swimmer but I'm also not afraid of the waves having grown up near the east coast of the U.S. I thoughly enjoyed swimming in the water here it was the perfect mix of waves and relaxing.

We went to farjado and stayed a night in Luquillo, terrible idea! It was dirty and the bio bay was highly disappointing! Plus we saw thd bioluminescence in the water outside the condo! We rented a boat tour instead of kayaking highly recommended the kayakers were miserable. We did go to the rainforest which was amazing and I would highly recommend! The la Mina waterfall hike was great although go during the week and the earlier the better! Also the anjelito? hike was the best a swimming area with a rope swing! We went into Old San Juan one night great night life and beautiful buildings!

Best things about the condo were being right on Sandy beach, tacos at le estacion, sushi at pool bar, drinks at Tamboo, snorkeling steps beach, Thursday night art market, Sunday farmers market, bingo on Thursday, renting surf boards next door, the roof top balcony at the condo, and the sunsets from the bingo bar, and all the amazing food in town!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your suggestions about what to do and what not to do. The island of Puerto Rico is amazing, but every time I visit another area I always prefer what Rincon has to offer. The snorkeling at Steps Beach is the best I've experienced throughout the Caribbean. Sounds like the ocean was cooperative with swimming when you were there. It is most of the time, but there are times when it is best to sit on the beach or go around the point where the conditions will be different. But each day is an adventure and you will discover a new treasure about Rincon every day.

relaxing vacation

  • 4 of 5

The condo was as expected. i can say that the property manager, Ryan, was excellent at tending to us during our visit. He met us at the condo and showed us around the unit. Beyond his control was an electrical "Brown out", just minute before our arrival. Ryan dropped everything and came right over to meet us outside. Two days later a contractor was at the unit measuring for a generator. The view was wonderful and all of our guest soon enjoyed the beach walks, boogie boards and finding sea glass along the beach. Great restaurants within walking distance and a short drive into Rincon. Three doors down is the Tamboo Beach Bar which is a great spot. You won't be the only folks to love this spot so you should expect a little noise on Friday and Saturday nights, but hey that's why it is called a vacation! If that gets you stressed, walk up the beach to the Barefoot Yoga Bodega in the morning and enjoy a relaxing yoga session.

Owner's Response: So happy you had a great stay. I hope once the generator arrives we can change the four star status to five stars. Ryan is so good at making guests feel welcome and comfortable so I'm glad he didn't disappoint..
