We spent a wonderful week in this lovely home. Elier met at the bottom of the hill as we couldn't find the house, led us there us at the house and gave us a quick walk through.
The furnishings were stylish and comfortable and things were in good working order. The bed in the master bedroom on the top floor was so comfortable that we slept beautifully. Waking up to the sounds of the birds and the ocean along with the views of the ocean was sublime. Once I even used the terrace off the master when the sun was just right. We used the air conditioning at night and it kept us perfectly cool. The fans are exceptional as well.
The main floor with the kitchen, living room, half bath, dining area and terraces was where we spent a lot of great family time. There was a high chair that we put to good use with my grandson. We cooked in the kitchen and on the grill; we ate inside sometimes and on the terrace of there was enough of a breeze. Coffee was our greatest challenge. The little coffee pot took about 30 minutes to brew a pot! I only thought after we left that it might just need de scaling. We did expect that a lovely villa such as this should have a highly functional coffe maker.
The lower floor contained the other three bedroom suites, each of which had glass doors out to the lower level lanai and pool area. The middle one is a bit larger and has a fold out futon, which was perfect for my daughter's little family. We never did use the 4th suite, which is entered separately. Downstairs there was also air conditioning but they never felt they needed it as it's cooler down there.
The pool are was well kept and we enjoyed hanging out by it on occasion. The covered lanai was a nice spot for an afternoon beverage. Under the outside stairs we found beach chairs, beach toys, and even a great straw hat for the beach. The house had plenty of beach towels.
Our only other wrinkle besides the coffee was getting hot water at times. Despite these small challenges, the week was perfect and met my expectations in every way. The location was great; we were able to easily walk down the hill to Sandy Beach, Casa Islena, Barefoot Yoga.
The house is perfect for a family. We vacation here every Christmas and chose this house for this year. Elier, the manager is the man. The location is great. The house has al the amenities you need for a beach or surfing vacation. My family expects high quality accommodations and this house has it. I recommend this house for any family that wants to spend time in this great surfing destination.

We had a wedding to attend and several events around that in Rincon.Villa Rincon was the perfect house for this weekend.As you walk in you drink in the view immediately walking thru the living room furnished with airy wicker sofas with cushions and to the right an open kitchen equipped with everything you can possibly need.The glass sliding doors all along the back of the house offer an unobstructed view to the ocean, lush tropical vegetation and access to a wrap around balcony with chaise lounges and a table for six perfect for dining al fresco.The property sits up on a hill yet its walking distance from the beach.The master suite is on the third floor and has its own private terrace.There is access to the ground floor at the entrance of the home and also by the kitchen which makes for a great floor plan offering privacy to three couples or if you're flying solo.On the ground floor are three spacious bedrooms each with their own full bath and decorated impeccably with beach motifs.All rooms have A/Cs and glass sliding doors opening up to the pool and a terrace with a table to dine al fresco and chaise lounges to hang out by the pool after a long day at the beach.The stars at night are amazing and this is an incredibly comfortable and peaceful retreat which is also perfect for a BBQ planned at the last minute for forty or fifty family members.I highly recommend this lovely home for a getaway weekend with your favorite people.
