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.

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..

Our Favorite!

  • 5 of 5

This property is our favorite and we plan to return 1-2x per year. Everything you need is available in the unit- we chose to stay in and cook for a few meals to enjoy the incredible views, including breaching humpback whales one evening. Erica and Ryan are phenomenal. We experienced small (unforseeable) maintenance challenges during each of our two visits to the property (Aug 2014 and Feb 2015) but Erica was extremely responsive, helpful, and genuinely cared about our comfort and relaxation. So feel confident booking this property! Erica et al will make sure you are comfortable and that every need was met and expectation exceeded.

Boogie boards, chairs, sand toys for the children, all kitchen utensils and appliances, a comprehensive guide to Rincon (and other fun places in PR) were provided and we could not have been happier or more comfortable for our family vacation. February 2015 was my sixth visit to Rincon and this is truly the best place in town to stay. Can't wait to come back in January/February 2016.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you have found our place in Rincon! The location is pretty special. Sometimes I feel I'm camped out right on the beach with all the comforts of home. Erica and Ryan are very special and will go above and beyond to do everything they can to make you comfortable. Thanks for staying with us each time you visit Rincon.

Beautiful Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My son got married on Sandy Beach last week. This was the perfect beach and condo. There were seven of us that traveled and we found the accommodations perfect. Everything we needed and more was in the condo. From beach chairs to boogie boards to a perfect nights sleep in the air conditioned bed rooms. All appliances were in the kitchen .... From a toaster to a blender. The view from the third floor was beautiful. I can't say enough about our great experience. Ryan was great getting us set up and Erica was in contact with us everyday to make sure there wasn't anything we needed. She even texted me on the day of the wedding to wish me a great and happy day. I will revisit soon since my son loves to surf and I love to watch. Beautiful beach. Very relaxing!
