Amazing beach villa
I recently traveled to Rincon, Puerto Rico, and had the pleasure of staying in this villa. Overall, I was amazed by the quality of the furnishings, overall setup, and artistic decoration of the property. It really is a gem, and the quality and character of the place go far beyond what you would expect from a vacation rental.
The general setup is great, with three well-decorated bedrooms and a foldout couch (with it's own flat-screen, of course); a comfortable downstairs living room (complete with gumball machine); dining room and kitchen with high-quality cookware; and a rooftop with a covered seating area, open patio with hot-tub, and flat-screen television. The setup made for a perfect shared living space. The rooftop patio area is great for entertaining and hanging out without bothering others in need of quiet time.
The kitchen is far-and-away the best I have ever seen in a vacation rental. It comes with a complete set of high quality Le Creuset cookware (a real treat to use!), and everything else you could possibly need to cook for a group of friends or family. Like other aspects of the villa, it goes far beyond what you would expect in a vacation rental.
In addition to all the basic furnishings, which are all excellent, this villa has a ton of character. It's filled with cool colorful artwork, hand-blown colored glass light fixtures, and even has a full mosaic wall with LED lighting in the staircase leading to the roof. As I said before, this villa has a lot that you would not expect in a run-of-the-mill beach rental. The owner has clearly spent a lot of time making sure that the villa has fun details around every corner.
I rented the villa to attend a wedding in Rincon and a number of other friends and family stayed in the same neighborhood, giving me a chance to look at other rental options. Their villas shared the same floor plan, but were stark and boring, and lacked all the special touches that made this one fun and inviting. The pictures on the website when I rented this place didn't do it justice; probably a good thing in my case, otherwise someone would have rented it before me.
Rincon is a great place to surf, snorkel, horse-ride, eat, and relax. Make sure you get a map (GPS should not be trusted!) and explore the area. My only regret is not staying longer.
