Rated EXCELLENT on TripAdvisor & FlipKey. RECOMMENDED on TripAdvisor. Verified TripAdvisor Listing since 2009. Welcome to Villa Sol in beautiful Rincon, Puerto Rico. To stay in Rincon is to get a real taste of Puerto Rico and its people and to experience and enjoy the Caribbean culture.

Since 1968 Rincon has been attracting surfers from all over the world to compete in the World Class Surfing Championship. Surfing beaches are 10 minutes away from your vacation home. Rincon, Puerto Rico is not only for surfers. It is Paradise for all ages. Villa Sol is located in a nice, friendly, and family oriented neighborhood known as Parcelas Estela in Rincon on the west coast. You walk past 7 houses and you're at the Caribbean Sea. We are just a few minutes drive to some of the most beautiful beaches. Beach towels we furnish and we will gladly lend you snorkels, masks, and fins to explore the reefs and the underwater life. Most of the spectacular fish and other underwater animals can all be seen while snorkeling. Snorkeling trips to Desecheo Island can be arranged if interested. There are many nearby beaches to enjoy from sunning to surfing. Never a bad day in Puerto Rico! We have several options for your vacation home rental needs. Cozy For Two is our one bedroom unit on the third floor and will accommodate two people. Villa Sol is our 4 bedroom unit on the ground level of our home and will accommodate up to 8 guests. Bedroom 1 has a queen bed, occasional chairs, and armoire and connecting private bath. Bedroom 2 has a queen bed, occasional chair, chaise lounge, and armoire and connecting private bath. Bedrooms 3 and 4 are adjoining and have queen and full beds, dressing room with a closet and mirrored sliding doors and a bathroom. All the bathrooms are spacious with white ceramic tile even in the ceilings and large showers. The large kitchen is tastefully decorated and equipped with everything you need to prepare your tropical dishes. If you can't find what you need just ask and we will try to accommodate you. The outdoor dining area and grill area are a perfect way to enjoy family and friends. We are within walking distance to restaurants, shopping centers, bakery, grocery stores, and the downtown area. All you need to bring is just a few clothes. Everything is furnished..shampoo, conditioner, soap, beach chairs, beach towels, umbrella, and all linens. Wi-Fi included. Villa Sol is a great vacation home to spend time with your family and friends. Southern hospitality (North Carolina) is hosted by Jean and Harry Hopkins. We are happy to say after Maria we had very little damage so we would love to be your host and hostess for your upcoming vacation. Your stay at Villa Sol will be relaxing. Mingle with the locals around the neighborhood. Dine outdoors, listen to the coquis, and enjoy our quaint little neighborhood. If that is too soothing for you, you can venture off to one our of cafes that provide live music and dancing or try your hand in one of the casino's which are about a twenty minute drive. Villa Sol is located in a nice, quiet, friendly, and family oriented neighborhood known as Parcelas Estela. Rincon is a very laid back little town and Safe. There is NO crime and you will find all the people are friendly and are willing to help you in any way. Rincon is not clustered with high rise resorts and hotels like the larger towns in Puerto Rico. Rincon is a small town, however, it is spread out for miles. I recommend renting a car so you can venture out and see what Rincon has to offer. You may want to visit Rincon's adjoining towns which are in 'Doorway to the Sun'. Most of the natives speak English so do not worry about Spanish lessons. We love Rincon and you will too!More
