The location was only 30 min from Aguadilla which is perfect since most flights arrive and leave very late around 2 AM. The property manager scheduled transportation for us and the driver was very nice with very reasonable rates. We ended up calling him a few times throughout the week to take us into the Rincon Plaza (about 20 minutes away, too far to walk). You do have a few places within walking distance that we frequented for meals like Tamboo, Kahuna Burger Bar, Casa Verde Hotel (we didn't go here but the Burger Bar is advertised as an extension of their restaurant) and we went to Casa Islena Inn for breakfast a few mornings. Casa Islena is excellent for a hearty american fare breakfast.. they make their own sausage and it's just wonderful. We loved it. We did not rent a vehicle and if I ever go back, I would next time. This apartment is truly RIGHT ON THE BEACH (you can't get any closer) and a little out of the way of the "town" so you can feel somewhat stuck without a taxi or your own vehicle. Thankfully, we had a wonderful driver (see above) that was awesome and took us wherever we wanted to go.
I was traveling with my boyfriend and our 4 year old son and it could not have been any closer to the beach. Walk down some stairs and you're there. Private beach was so nice.. did not see many people as this is a "slower" time for them (end of April) from what we learned. Families and individuals and lots of surfers did come and go though.
They did have beach chairs, hammocks, outside shower.. made it so convenient being on the beach most of every day. The property manager will work with you to have some groceries stocked upon your arrival as well.. which was nice so we did not have to make a trip to the store. They have all the essentials to make a few meals during your stay which was nice.
The AC is a wall unit in the bedroom with a fan in the living room. The futon folds out to a queen bed. It was perfect for our son and the AC was powerful. We even turned it up because it was COLD in the bedroom a few nights.. imagine that in PR!
All in all, I would recommend this place to anyone who is truly wanting to get away from it all and spend some alone time with their family, spouse, or their self and the beautiful beach and ocean. It was amazing views on the balcony. I could have spent all day sitting out there watching the waves and surfers. It was a wonderful time. I hope to visit again sometime with just my boyfriend and I for a shorter stay.
Beautiful view awesome sunset's right from the balcony, surfing is good right behind apartment on a very secluded beach, this location is top notch!!!!
Beautiful view. Loved the apartment. Sleeping to the sound of waves is great. The food in Rincon is first class and way better than what we expected. Wish the surf at Pools could of been better but Maria's was really fun. Rincon is really a nice community with friendly people and fun places to visit and enjoy. Thanks for making your place available for my wife and me. We hope to come back soon.
We really enjoyed our stay in Rincon. The location - on the beach with no other abutting houses and walking distance to lots other beaches, restaurants, and nightlife - was so fantastic! All the people we met were really friendly and helpful. Don't miss the Red Flamboyant for some great Puerto Rican Food! The apartment itself was simple but just perfect. The kitchen was small but very functional and we enjoyed having 2 bathrooms. The only downside was a loud and smokey generator when the power went out. The management company was very friendly and responsive! We'll be back!
Stayed here in the off-season ( surfing off season, May) for a week and it was magical. The location literally can not be beat and, because it was the off season, we had our own private beach (not literally but due to the reduced tourist population) for the entire week. Incredible experience. Major disappointments were the interior of the unit. We stayed in the second floor unit. Accounting for the difficulties maintaining anything in the hot and humid climate it was still disappointing: rusty and mildewy screens, which often didn't fit very well, on windows, sliding screen doors to the patio that didn't fit or slide easily, dank showers, dirty pots in cupboards, in general everything showed evidence of hard use and overall lack of maintenance. Air conditioning only in the bedroom doesn't help either. The location makes up for a lot and I would definitely stay here again but the interior could definitely use some work to make it more pleasant.

We stayed at the Whale Watcher unit on the top floor, The views were amazing and Yes, we did see some whales, although it was near the end of whale season, and the end of surf season, the waves were huge on a few days and pleasant on other days. the Beach at the foot of the steps was clean and very private. The home was clean, the only problem was not having laundry facilities on the property. no one wants to spend hours at a laundry mat during vacation, that takes away precious time from enjoying the area however everything else was excellent.
