“Great Escape to Eden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2010

Rented the main house and the guest house for 14 members of our family. Eight adults, one teen-ager, and 5 between 10 and 4. Great place. Stu was an excellent host. The facilities were excellent. Did some fishing for tuna (ate it that night); sailing, snorkeling, jet sking; rented a kyack and a surf board (with paddle) for the week. Water is clean and the beach was almost ours 100%. Visited the Calypso cafe for rum punches and a couple of lunches. Stu arrainged a pig roast for us with all the trimmings one night (had left overs the next night). Stu also helped us with all of our transportation needs from San Juan to Rincon, so we did not have to rent three vans for the entire week. This trip takes about three hours and that is the only negative. Had a couple of bon fires on the beach; great for the kids.

My son got married on the beach in front of Villa Playa Maria. It was a magnificent setting and a beautiful location. The Villa worked perfectly for both families. We have a two year old, several 20 somethings and both sets of parents along with other adult family members. The Villa and location offered something for everyone. Many of us chose to relax by the pool and enjoy the perfect weather and view of the ocean while others took to the water and went snorkeling or scuba diving. The Villa housed five couples comfortably and allowed for the grandparents to share our granddaughter in the lower level common areas.
Stuart, the Owner / caretaker was was quick to provide contacts and directions for our every need.
We used a local chef rcommended by Stuart to prepare the rehearsal dinner on site and it was fabulous. The gounds accommodated the tent and table for the reception and provided an ideal setting.
I would recommend this villa to anyone planning a destination wedding or a relaxing vacation. The only drawback is the 2.5 hour drive from San Juan but it is well worth it once you arrive.

Agree with restauronteur's review of this beach home, except at this time of year this is NOT a good part of Puerto Rico for scuba diving or snorkeling. However, we did see whales while sitting on our beach chairs, which alone was worth the trip.

We spent a week here with extended family and friends. Four professional adults (50-60ish)and our four young adult children (20-24). The property is beautifully landscaped and maintained by Stuart, the owner, who is very much hands on with attention to every detail. With the wonderful pool/swim up bar area and the beach at our back door, some of us never left the property. There was plenty to keep everyone occupied. We all enjoyed watching the waves and surfers on Maria's beach as well as the wonderful snorkeling on a short beach walk away at Steps Beach. The short beach walk in the other direction, to the lighthouse is equally as breathtaking. Sitting at the edge of the beach watching a beautiful sunset was a fabulous end to every day at this stunning property.
Being restaurant owners and Chefs, the kitchen and outdoor grill were very important to us. This one was well equipped with state of the art appliances with plenty of working and dining areas. Stuart was the consummate host and help, even procuring fresh lobsters for a wonderful surf and turf feast in our beautiful vacation home.
I would recommend this property to anyone wanting a restful, fun filled, vacation in one of the most gorgeous settings ever. We will be back.

A fantastic location. Clean and safe facility. Very comfortable. My husband, daughter and I had a fabulous time. We lived 20 years ago in and around the San Juan area for 8 years and did not spend much time in Rincon. This facility far exceeds what you expect in Puerto Rico. It has been built with much loving care and superb quality. We were thrilled with the accommodations and did not want to leave! This is not a hotel -- it is a private villa facility, perfect and private.

Stuart: I cannot tell you how much we all (thats exactly 150+ people) enjoyed our stay. To this day, everyone talks about our wedding and 'the dude'. I wonder who that is! You were a gentleman to my parents and a buddy to my best friends. We will NEVER forget our stay at Villa Marias and are looking forward to repeating our stay for our 5 yr anniversary, although there's talks among the boys of a 2010 reunion. Are you ready for that!? Thanks again for being so helpful and generous. We all wish you the best. See you soon in my little Island! ***The swimming pool with the swim up bar was a HUGE hit!***
