Interaction with Guests
Email communications prior to arrival and during stay, as needed. Our property manager José, handles the check-in process (getting you apartment keys, gate remote and elevator key code), and is available for any onsite maintenance needs during your stay.
The apartment is centrally located in Rincón, just 3 blocks from the town plaza, 1.5 blocks from the municipal beach, and 1.5 miles from the Rincón lighthouse at Punta Higuero.
Rental car is recommended for getting around the island. While there is decent public transit in San Juan, outside of the metropolitan area public transit is spotty and generally consists of private taxi vans that leave certain locations (usually town plazas) and drop off in town plazas across the island. This type of travel is only recommended if you are familiar with Puerto Rico and are fluent enough in Spanish to communicate well with the drivers.
Please note that this apartment is a part-time residence for the owners, it is not purely a vacation rental. As such, the furniture, appliances and decorations are all high quality, and were picked to make this property feel like a home, not just a vacation rental.
The owners are not looking for this apartment to become a party rental, but rather, are looking for responsible guests and families who will appreciate the amazing location and comfortable appointments, and treat the apartment with respect.
We acknowledge normal wear and tear and realize things can break, but seek to maintain the cleanliness of our apartment and encourage larger groups planning to party to look at other nearby properties.
Because of this, we employ a building manager, who will be your primary contact upon booking. The building manager is responsible for ensuring the apartment is clean and ready for your visit, and will coordinate your arrival to provide you with entry codes and key pick-up.
There is a strict non-smoking policy in the apartment. Anyone breaking this rule may be subject to loss of their deposit.
Sorry, but there are no pets allowed, except for certified guide dogs for the sight-impaired.
Rafael was incredibly responsive and easy to coordinate with through the entire process and provided me with great insider information on attractions and hot spots. Rincon itself was amazing! Great beaches, some of the best food in all of Puerto Rico and super chill vibe. The house was also impeccably clean, beautiful and had a great view of the ocean. I will definitely be going back. Gracias Rafael!
The condo was great. Clean & spacious with all the amenities we required. Raphael was very good with communications and Jose, his contact in Rincon met us promptly to familiarize us with the accommodations and offer assistance if the need arose.
It is situated in a very convenient area close to Taino Divers (great scuba place) and Pintos "R" Us which is a stellar place for horseback riding. There are grocery stores and restaurants close by as well.We recommend La Cambija which is just down the road.
We will no doubt stay here the next time we visit Rincon.
Really nice apartment, great spot, near most beautiful beaches in Puerto Rico. Great snorkling with a lot of fishes and corals really near the appartment. The owner is available every time if you have a problem or a question.
You have to rent a car if you go to Rincon because there's no bus and not a lot of taxis.
Anyone visiting Rincon looking for clean, modern, beautiful accommodations should definitely consider this property. The place is very well set up, exactly as advertised, and is about as centrally located within the Rincon area as you can get. You can walk to Steps Beach (our favorite) in about 10 minutes, and to either the town beach or Rincon plaza in about 5 minutes. All of the other attractions are within a short 5 to 10 minute car drive.
Rafael was very prompt and courteous in his communications prior to and during our one-month stay. He gave helpful advice regarding activities and restaurants, which we enjoyed. Josue, the local property manager, was also helpful, promptly providing extra keys and pointing us to an excellent local doctor when the need arose.
Overall, a great experience!

Great luxury ocean view condo about a block and a half from the beach. Rincón is a great surfing area, but a little low key nightlife wise in the offseason. The apartment is fully stocked with pretty much you would want in terms of relaxing and cooking, etc. Satellite TV, but no internet, which might be for the best. It's a little hard to locate, but the property manager is very helpful and communicative. Overall a great experience!
