Why Jim Davidson chose Puntas
The Rincon Hilltop Villa has many advantages. It is high enough to get the cooling trade winds, but is far away enough to avoid salt spray and any hurricane waves. The apartment is at the western tip of Puerto Rico.
What makes this Apartment unique
The exclusive Colina Linda community has seven million dollar homes on a cul-de-sac. The lap pool, Jacuzzi, back-up generator, water cistern, electric entrance gate, DISH satellite TV and wireless internet, lets you get away from the urban environment and enjoy the rural atmosphere, but stay connected -- if desired.

Fantastic destination and hosy
Couldn't have been any better. The homeowner was very helpfull and accommodating. He has lived there many, many years and is an awesome resource. We will return.
The Most Beautiful Sunset
The Rincon Hill Top Villa was more beautiful than anyone could ever describe and the views were breath taking. The owner of the Villa, Jim is an amazing host and has lived in PR for years and has great knowledge of all the attractions and go-to spots! He's there for anything you need and makes you feel very safe and at home! The hot tub and pool are an every day must and the view from the villa is just as he describes, you can see the beach from the driveway (what more could you ask for honestly). The hill is a great workout and I would 100% recommend staying at the Rincon Villa to any family that's looking for an amazing place to stay with an even more amazing view!
Special Spot. Special owner. Special Vacation.
My family and I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place, the owner, the neighborhood and Jacob (the dog). We had a lovely stay here. The place is clean, comfortable, safe and relaxing. Jim has all amenities: a pool, hot shower, gas stove, internet (he even brought me a high powered fast router so that I could grade my online student papers), and cable tv. When the power went off the generator and back-up water cisterns kicked right in. The street is quiet and the neighbors are lovely (invited us for cocktails one evening). We were able to walk to excellent coffee, great waves (husband is a surfer), wonderful child-friendly beaches, and good meals. We love Rincon and Puerto Rico but Jim (and Jacob) made this stay one of the most special vacations we have had in years.
Outstanding home and host!
Very nice accomadation in the best part of Rincon.
Clean, well appointed home and with an excellent Host.
Cozy apartment in a great town!
Everything was pretty good. We had a great time....and Megan was super accessible! Would have loved to stay longer. Next time!!
Exactly what we wanted and needed
The house was easy to find driving at night from SJU (we got in at 9 and were a little concerned we wouldn't find the road) We have two girls under 10 and the neighborhood, while being right up the road from a pretty active restaurant/beach scene, felt very safe and quiet. The house itself was clean, well appointed and had everything we needed and more than we expected (beach chairs, toys, games etc.) The bedrooms were great, the beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean. The pool was clean and big and set in a beautiful yard. We walked down to Sandy Beach, which was great (the hill climb back is really not bad but not for anyone with mobility limitations). Maria's, Steps and Domes beaches are all within a 5-7 minute drive. There is a small corner store down the hill with the basics, Tamboo Restaurant (which had a slight touristy vibe but was sufficient for an easy dinner) also a quick walk, a smoothie/espresso/coffee bar also at the bottom of the hill. Downtown Rincon is 10-15 minute drive and El Flamboyan (which is a great place to eat) is 15-20 minute walk/5 minute drive. We had to cut our stay short for an emergency back in the real world but my wife and I are both committed to returning to this home to spend more time.
Megan-the liason between us and the owners- was great and communicative the whole time.
No complaints at all.
