This was the perfect place to escape the cold, snowy east coast winter!
The house is exactly as described and pictured.
We found the place to be clean and very well-stocked.
There were 2 adult couples, as well as 6 adult children. The couples stayed in the master bedroom and the other guest bedroom. Two of the adult children stayed on the third floor loft, and the other 3 stayed in the bunk room.
We cooked dinner in one night, but every other night we went out to dinner. There are many restaurants nearby.
The beach in front of the house is beautiful, but not great for sitting on the beach for the day. We had a great time sea-glassing there in the mornings. Sandy Beach, more suited for sunbathing, is a 15 minute walk or 20 minute drive away.
The third floor balcony/deck was well-used. We usually started our day up there with coffee, and ended it at night with cocktails. The view is beautiful and the furniture comfortable.
You definitely need a car if you are staying here. Other than Sandy Beach and a few small restaurants/bars, everything is within driving distance. The roads in Rincon are not friendly, so be sure to drive cautiously.
It was nice to return "home" to our gated community each night. We felt safe and comfortable there. It is a beautiful community and well cared for. I would definitely recommend this villa!
Favorite restaurants/bars include Tropical Sunset (left out of the community), Tamboo, Calypso, Shipwreck, and our favorite, Red Flambayan.

Owner's Response: It is truly an oasis in the community, safe, peaceful and quite. We chose to purchase in Punta del Mar Beach Village because it is so beautiful and because of the piece of mind that comes with a 24 hour manned security. The community is very large resting on approx. 145 acres. Just that the fact that the driveway from the guard booth to the villa is about a mile long really gets you away from any noise and hustle and bustle of the outside world. It's much nicer to listen to the birds chirping, the coqui frogs singing and the roar of the ocean at our beach-front vacation home than to the man-made distractions we all too often experience. This home really makes a vacation a vacation-not to mention the 2800 interior sq. ft. and the third floor patio for your morning coffee and cocktails at sunset. Margaret and I are looking forward to having you back. Thank you.
