House Needs Decor Work But Perfect As Is For The Right group
Spent Christmas week through New Year's Eve with family of young adults at Grande Villa. Loved Rincon and will return but house as is needs some work, unless you are a group of college kids/young adults who want a great location to hang out, party and don't care about using the kitchen to cook or outdoor plastic tables/chairs.
There's no photo of the kitchen and now I understand why as it needs a lot of work and had no first day amenities usually provided (basics like salt and pepper, new sponge, paper products, etc). Three of the bathrooms have been modernized and are very nice, and the fourth needs total improvement. There is a nice dining table and chairs but would have liked option for eating outside with family. Comfortable and enough outdoor seating is very inadequate, especially for a house that sleeps so many.
Went to beach everyday so never used pool. Just as well because there were a few couples there with a loud barking dog and late parties so we would have felt like intruding into someone else's party, so just something to be aware of. House is just down the street from popular bar on the beach so good if you want an easy quick meal or to hang out but beware of congestion and late night noise until closing time.
Also house has no Internet.
Have made owners aware of all my concerns, not all are listed here, and he said he would address them for future rentals
Owner's Response: We were very happy to have you and your group stay with us. During the month of January 2013, we purchased an outdoor table and chair set for the patio. We also paid the deposit on a new wood kitchen which will be installed around May 2013. Internet has been a challenge for us as we use Dish which does not offer an Internet solution. When we inquired about Comcast two years ago, they did not have capacity. Fortunately the bar to which you refer has free WiFi which I used every day during my stay. The best location is the first table as you approach from the street.
