“Paradise- absolutely magical, secluded, and romantic”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Joe's apartment is the perfect vacation rental for Rincon. My husband and I spent 3 magical nights here to celebrate our anniversary. Joe made it very easy to rent the apartment and payment was easy through PayPal.

Joe met us at a nearby Burger King and we followed him to the apartment. Warning - the drive to the apartment can be a little scary, especially if you have a compact rental car like we did. The road up to the apartment is very steep and has extremely sharp turns. But you get used to it and we were driving up the street like old pros by the end.

The view from the patio is phenomenal. Beautiful ocean views. Joe's property is lush, with fruit trees, flowers, and lots of interesting birds and lizards. The yard has a hammock with an ocean view. We sipped rum punch while watching the famous Rincon sun set. It was HEAVEN.

The apartment is stocked with everything you may need. Full kitchen to make simple meals. There are even some spices and condiments left over from former guests. There are also beach towels, chairs, and a cooler.

The beds are comfy and there is a television with satellite, but we barely ever put the tv on.

The beach is a 2 minute walk down the steep hill. The beach is gorgeous. Nice sand, palm trees, lush vegetation. It is secluded for the most part. In our 3 days there, we only saw people walk down the beach twice.

The neighborhood is quaint, filled with friendly locals. We prefer this neighborhood over the other neighborhoods in Rincon. There is a local fisherman within walking distance. We bought a huge lobster for a very decent price and threw it on the grill on our patio. There is also a tiny bar right around the corner. The locals who patronize the bar are some of the nicest people I have ever met. The bartender is a lovely lady who gave my husband a bowl of soup that he said was very tasty. Drinks are very cheap. Beer and mixed drinks were both under $2 a piece. This bar is a great way to get a taste of local flavor. I prefer this bar to some of the more touristy bars in Rincon.

The value of the apartment is incredible. Why pay twice as much anywhere else? We had an incredible view all to ourselves as well as a mostly secluded beach. I would take that over having to share my space with other hotel guests.

“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed January 14, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We were looking for an economical place to stay for 8 nights in January and Barrero Beach Apartment was the PERFECT spot for us! Joe was so nice and great and provided us with some great restaurant recommendations and helped us with some scuba diving recommendations as well. The room was pretty basic, and it had everything we needed. The beds were firm but comfortable and the kitchen had all of the basics needed for cooking. The grill outside worked great and beach chairs were provided. We enjoyed many afternoons on the hammock outside and enjoyed some mango smoothies with mangoes provided by Joe from the tree in the yard. The view of the Caribbean is wonderful and we enjoyed many dinners at the balcony table. We highly recommend Barrero Beach Apartment for anyone looking for a reasonably priced place to stay.
