We had a delightful time. The apt was beautiful and the scenery breath taking. Elliot was very nice and accommodating.
Maddalena's Hillside Residence was delightful. Lovely mountain setting, clean and spacious! Loved the deck and view the most. Will certainly be back soon.
The Hillside Residence is spectacular. You turn off a main street at a Puma gas station, drive through a typical Puerto Rican development, then suddenly the landscape changes and you're driving through a lush forest and passing grazing cows. You take a sharp right up a steep dirt road, drive for 3 minutes and then you're facing a two story stucco building built atop a hill, overlooking sweeping, gorgeous vistas of greenness and grazing cows. The view is breathtaking from the wrap-around terrace.
The house is solidly built with gorgeous doors and windows and furnished simply and tastefully - it's obvious an Italian woman is behind the whole enterprise.
Elliot, the caretaker, was sweet and so helpful. We met him at the Puma station when we arrived, he gave us a tour of the necessities (grocery store, beach, bakery...), then escorted us up to the house and showed us around. He was very responsive whenever we needed him (which wasn't a lot. The cooking gas ran out and he quickly got us another tank).
We loved our stay here and you will too.
Just recently returned from a trip to Puerto Rico. We spent four nights in Rincon, then decided to venture to the other side of the island for the remainder or our vacation, but we could've easily spent the entire time in Rincon! The Hillside Residence is beautiful and the view is spectacular! The apartment was clean, spacious, and comfortable for four people. The neighborhood is quiet, safe, and a short drive to beautiful beaches, great food, and nightlife. I highly recommend renting a sport utility or all terrain vehicle as the streets are narrow, and elevation varies quite a bit. While we were there we were already planning our return trip!
We had an incredible stay at the house on the hillside! The view is phenomenal and the setting is peaceful, private and serene. The house is clean, comfortable and spacious.
The Hillside residence was everything I expected and then some. It is a beautiful, meticulously designed, comfortable and very private property. If you are looking for a peaceful, warm yet breezy retreat this house is for you. It was so nice waking up every morning, make a cup coffee, open the 3 set of double doors, sit either on the balcony or the indoor dining table, sip the coffee and read a book. The view from the house is also very soothing. We followed the suggestions in terms of beaches provided in a pamphlet mailed to me in advance and that worked out quite nicely. The beaches in Rincón were from 5 to 15 minutes drive. They are all beautiful! However, I strongly recommend taking a 50 minute drive to El Faro (Light House) in Cabo Rojo. It's one of the most beautiful beach in the world.
The Hillside Residence has everything you need in terms of cooking utensils, pots and pans, beach chairs and extra towels. The kitchen is great for entertaining and cooking as well. The house doesn't have A/C but is not needed. It has ceiling fan in every room and because of the open layout and lots of windows the air circulates quite nicely. Overall I really enjoyed my stay and will certainly rent this house again when I return to Rincón which is a very picturesque, friendly and safe town.
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hillside residence for a week on vacation from winter in New York. We loved the apartment and it was exactly like it was pictured in the listing. Elliot the house manager was friendly and responsive if we needed anything. The apartment itself is wonderful and it offers a beautiful view of Rincon all the way to the ocean. It's quiet, which was exactly what we were looking for, and the apartment open, airy, clean and comfortable with doors to great balcony in the main bedroom and the living room. Maddalena also provides a very useful handbook full of info about local beaches, restaurants, services, etc.
