We have two floors and each apartment is separate. We expect our guests to respect each other the privacy. No smoking inside the house please, there is a big balcony all around the house.
If you are visiting Rincon, or the west end of the island this is the place to stay. In fact, this house is the reason to come to this end of the island. Set on the rainforest top overlooking a picturesque valley on one side, and the ocean on the other. Perfect for a romantic getaway, or a group of more. Highly recommend it!
When my husband and I decided to get away from our daily routine for a few days we came across Casa Colina in Rincon. The photos looked appealing as did the location in the hills so we decided to book - and am I glad we did!
In addition to the gorgeous views of rolling hills and evening sunsets, the interior of Casa Colina left an unforgettable impression. We spent most of our time staying in and enjoying the BBQ, hillside view and of course the nirvana-inducing tub.
The owners' attention to detail is incredible. From the easy wi-fi access to the long thunderbolt to HDMI cable already plugged into the TV and ready to roll, everything was in its place and there was nothing we needed that wasn't provided.
The tile in the tower stairway was a tasty preview to the delicious interior design. Hand crafted wooden railings, intricate doorway arches and well placed lighting with dimmer switches reflected the thought put into creating this relaxing space.
The sounds of evening song birds and a coqui serenade lulled us to sleep each night and it was a difficult chore to force ourselves from the sky high poster bed in the morning.
Rincon is a beautiful place but we found ourselves hurrying back to what felt like our own private villa in the hills, loaded with quality meal ingredients from the grocery store down the street for a luxurious dinner on the veranda.
We highly recommend Casa Colina and will definitely be back!
Casa Colina was beautiful. Very breezy, comfortable and the view was absolutely gorgeous. We both enjoyed reading on the porch and relaxing in the bath tub. It's very close to beaches and landmarks, but located on a quiet hilltop.
We would definitely recommend this space to anyone traveling to Rincon! Thank you, Maddalena, for allowing us to enjoy the beauty of your home and town!
This apartment is truly amazing, a luxury airbnb! We had the most wonderful time staying here. The apartment not only looks just like the photos but is fully equipped with everything you need, extra towels, good amount of cooking utensils, beach gear etc.. The hosts looked after our every need. We will definitely be returning!!
The unit/apartment was exactly as described and everything looked as the pictures. Zero surprises. Beach towels and chairs, washer/dryer if needed, extra linens and bath towels, fully equipped kitchen (small but functional), bluetooth stereo system, great cross breeze with the doors open, and much more. With the entire house being a two unit, Casa Colina felt very private which helped to make the stay most pleasant.
Maddalena was most welcoming as a host and very quick to respond with any questions or concerns. She provided a booklet loaded with local information (about the area, house, directions, restaurants, etc) prior to arriving and one for reference when you are there.
Elliot was also most welcoming as he met and directed us to the home.
I would definitely stay here again.
The property was accurately described and visually appealing. We especially enjoyed the beautiful shower. It had excellent water temperature and pressure. The driveway was a bit scary due to the hills, but the view made it worth it. The unit was pretty hot when we arrived; however, if you left the doors open and put the fans on this did help in the evening. My husband and I found both the bed and sofas to be too soft and very uncomfortable, as we prefer a firm mattress. Overall, it was a good experience.
I have been coming to Casa Colina for a little over two years now. It has become my "little piece a paradise" in Rincon.
