great place for amazing sunsets and a quiet beach

  • 5 of 5

we stayed in the upstairs apartment which suited us fine. fabulous verandah for watching the sunset. i think that was the best past of the entire living space. the beach was uncrowded (basically no one when we were there!) which was great. i like QUIET!! the neighborhood was ok. it was certainly safe. i expected it to be more upscale since the house is on the water. we did not rent a car so i walked everywhere. my favorite beach was step beach (definitely snorkle there-fabulous elk coral) and pool's beach (to get to pool's beach in puntas i rented a bike (no speeds so challenging on the uphills!). the apartment was nice; although i felt it could be updated a bit. it was a bit drab and tired looking. a fresh coat of paint with some color and new wall prints would make it so much more appealing. you can't beat the location and the property is clean and well maintained. sabrina, the property manager was very available and helpful. only real issue was the wifi. i am not sure if it was our carrier (verizon) but we did not have good connections. usually only one of our phones worked at a time; some days not at all. finally, as in so many places i have rented there are never good frying pans. if you are going to outfit a kitchen then decent frying pans are a must!! overall though this property was ideal for our stay.

Great place on a relaxing beach and quaint local area

  • 5 of 5

Overall great place to stay. Amazing views of the sunset over the water and the stars at night. Big enough for 12 people to fit if you use a few roll away beds. The local area is also nice. It is very convenient to walk to the grocery store and several restaurants (all of which were very good).

Beautiful location and super great house manager!

  • 4 of 5

I just returned from keeping a group of 12 at this house for a college outdoor program spring break. The house is literally on the beach! Having morning coffee and watching the waves crash on the beach is worth every penny. If youre going to go big then go big! Location is across street from grocery store and a mile from downtown Rincon.

If youve never been to Rincon it is a must visit town!

House keeper Sabrina Weaver was extremely great to work with. Speaks perfect English as she is American. She communicates great and is very understanding.

There is a rooster next door that will / can wake you early.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay! Come back and tell your friends! The house works well with as few as two people(one full 9 rm unit) or up to twelve people(for both houses, both units) You still maintain privacy, because of separate entrances and separate driveways as well as on site parking.Sabrina, my private manager is exceptional and works for me exclusively, so you know she is always available to you.Thanks for the review!

Excellent vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay, everything was as described. Sabrina (property manager) was very responsive and helped us with everything we needed. Payment is unconventional (old style) but nothing to fear, I would definitely go again.

Bad mattresses. Should be cheaper

  • 2 of 5

My husband, son and I rented this property for the Rincon international Film Festival. Although it was very clean and the location was great, the main problem we had was that the mattresses were terrible. My husband is just starting to get better after more than a month. I have a bad back and I was in pain, as was my son. That said, it is a nice house and the screens worked. There is air conditioning, but only in the bedrooms. I wonder why the mattresses are so bad? i was a landlord and I always had great mattresses. Good sleep is important!

Owner's Response: Sorry you were not comfortable with the mattresses. Frankly this was the first time there was a complaint. According to my property manager ,with whom you spoke numerous times during your week's stay everything in your words was ""WONDERFUL" I visit frequently and sleep in different rooms each time to insure everything is as comfortable as possible. I will recheck beds when I return in the fall, and will purchase new ones where indicated. As far as air conditioning is concerned, remote units , are in bedrooms only as indicated on the web site. . I spoke with you myself after your stay, there was never mention of any problems. I certainly apologize for any inconvenience. My clients have generally been more than pleased with the accommodations , the service and the many amenities.
