What we enjoyed best was the total relaxation, the villas, the
sunsets, the upper level deck for sunning and reading. Gladys and Hector
were very helpful and accommodating. They are great people. Thank you for
allowing us to rent your villa.

My name is Denise and I rented from your Villa 2 Lower level for the week
of Nov 22 thru the 29. Your homes are beautiful and so homey. You and
your wife are doing a wonderful job of making your guest feel right at
home. I look forward visiting one of your homes in the future.
Thanks for giving use the opportunity to experience Thanksgiving on the

know that we greatly enjoyed our first trip to
Rico, the villa, and the people we met along the way. The villa itself,
and the weather, were terrific. We also greatly enjoyed meeting Hector
and Gladys...you couldn't have more congenial people there on your
behalf. Thanks again.....hope to contact you again for a return visit.
Our third return trip. The location is fantastic – very comfortable
accommodations. Thanks for another great vacation.

I just wanted to
send you a quick note to let you know that we loved your place and had a
the overall comfort of the house, the bed and the crisp white sheets, the
terrace and that feeling of being outdoors, even while sitting in the
living room. Great location!
I have told a lot of
friends and family about what a wonderful and affordable place that you
have. We look forward to our next visit to Rincon and staying at one of

21-28. This was our first visit and hopefully not our last. The house
was beautiful and so comfortable, it really did feel like home! We miss
having breakfast each morning on the porch and listening to the ocean.
Thank you for a wonderful experience we hope to come back again someday.

I wanted to drop you a quick note of thanks! We had a wonderful week last
week at your places (I was in Villa 2, lower)! The beach was wonderful
for the kids, but when Maria’s started to break it was close and easy! As
a 7 time return visitor to Rincon, I am pleased that Wade Sarkis (who I
referred to the village over a year ago, and he stayed with you all)
shared your name and place with me! We have a new base for our future
visits! Thank you again for a wonderful attitude, place to stay, and great
service! You guys do it right! I had a whole bunch of digital pictures,
but the memory stick on the camera failed at the end of the visit. It’ll
have to live in our memories. Looking forward to contacting you next
I just wanted to let you know that we enjoyed our stay immensely. The
accommodations exceeded our expectations. Everything was wonderful! We
spent a glorious 9 days. Hector & Gladys were great and attentive to our
every need. One day I called Gladys and asked if she had an ice chest we
could borrow for a day trip we were planning for the next day. When we got
back that afternoon we had 3 ice chests in different sizes! The house was
so comfortable we didn't need to run on the air conditioners. Actually, we
had to turn down the ceiling fans at night. Sleeping the ocean waves
lapping on the back of the house was so soothing and relaxing. Many nights
we just sat in the back and listened to the calming sounds. The only thing
we could have used was a hose to rinse the sand off the back porch and
perhaps the names and address of a few more local restaurants.
included a few pictures we took of the glorious sunsets and early morning.
Thanks for the pleasure of letting us stay at your Paradise in Rincon.
Sincerely, Ivelysse Swan
PS. I've already recommended this place to several of my colleagues.
Many thanks from all
of our Sawyer family that stayed with you in February. We really had a
great time and your accommodations fit us perfectly. I am a little
(perhaps a lot) slow in sending a "thanks" to you but was reminded that I
should let you know how well things worked out for us when we recently
received a note from you. I hope we left the villa in an acceptable
condition. We talked it over with Gladys and all seemed fine with her. The
beach was just perfect for our grandchildren. I understand it disappeared
right after we left for awhile due to big waves. Jakobe's told us about it
after they returned. When we next vacation in Puerto Rico, we'll be in
touch again, I'm sure.

The place was lovely. As you can see we were not at all disappointed with
the view. The reliable afternoon rain divided our days nicely-- as did
the home-made coco-locos!

We had a
wonderful time in Villa 1 June 24-27. Rincon is a bit more developed than
I remember it from 1966 (grocery stores, Church's Chicken, more paved
roads), but the relaxed atmosphere and beauty of the place is unchanged.
Your villa is a lovely way to immerse into the community and feel like
part of the place, rather than being a tourist at an impersonal hotel. We
watched a women's softball game and a salsa band practice one
night in the neighborhood around the villas, and it felt like we were home
in our own neighborhood. It was nice to have so much light and fresh air
inside the villas, yet touches like ice-makers, satellite TV, and the
great kitchen make it feel like a luxury experience. And that hammock is
great for reading (and napping) with the soothing sound of the waves
filling one's ears. Attached are some of our photos from our time at Villa
1. These are from my digital camera- Daisy had the film camera and those
are yet to be developed. Thanks again for the wonderful experience.

much enjoyed our stay in Rincon and especially Sunset Paradise.
The accommodations were even better than we expected. Here are a few
pictures for you to see. Honestly, we were so busy having fun that we
didn't take a lot of photos. Thank you for creating such a lovely,

Bill & Joyce,
What a wonderful time we had at your villa. Bob and I stayed there from
Jan. 15 - 23 while the temperature in upstate NY dropped to record lows of
22 below. We had fantastic weather, the ocean was warm, Villa 1 upper was
perfect. (I had stayed there 2 years ago with a girlfriend and knew it
was just too romantic a spot to waste on a girlfriend.) We loved the
privacy, the solitude, the sound of the waves, watching sunsets from the
balcony and the moon rise over the mountains from the roof. The hammock
is a special bonus. We are trying to determine how we can get away next
year for two or three weeks. It was the most relaxing time of my life AND
the most romantic! I would love to repeat it every year. I've attached
two pictures. The first is one of Bob at sunset and would be appropriate
for your web site. The second one was taken the following morning and is
of the full moon over the ocean with a cruise ship in front of the
island. It's OK to put this on your web site, but I'm not sure that
someone looking at the picture will realize that it's the moon. I'm sure
that you and your wife have probably seen this on your visits to your
Villa. Thank you.

layout, Beautiful view, Loved the sound of the ocean, and flow through
ventilation – never had to run the A/C. The guidebook was greatly
appreciated and Gladys was very helpful and a delight.

We had a
great time. We love the fact that the house is so close to the water. My
kids were dying to jump off the balcony onto the water, of course we did
not let them do that. My husband enjoyed
the sound of the waves from the indoor room that faces the ocean. It was
very relaxing. The neighbors were very friendly and they all spoke
English. The next door neighbor even invited us to their Christmas
Party. We didn't have to go we just enjoyed the party from our balcony
and they even sent the food over. It was very nice.
We only missed the sunset, every night there was a cloud blocking the
sunset. But, during the day we had no problems with the sun, there was
plenty of it. Even the 10 minute rain was great to watch. We had good
meals every night, the neighbor across the street helped us with
recommendations. Good food and inexpensive. Thank you very much.
