Not clean or comfortable and it was very loud! Between the bar and bands and the cars, it was not pleasant. Plus the owners have some issues around town with horses and closing public beach walks. We wished we had stayed elsewhere! We only write this to save someone else the problems we had. We wished we didn't have to write this!!
Thank Juan F

From the owners pictures and some old reviews, we expected a beautiful view...sitting on the deck. Our very disappointing experience, upon arriving, was NO VIEW! It was all grown up! Our decision to choose this place was based on a lovely view to come home to each night! So you can imagine the feeling each time we walked out onto the deck....$150 a night for an efficiency with no working stove, a blown outlet in the bathroom, no light on the deck for grilling(we luckily had a flashlight), no filters for the coffee pot, salt(but no pepper). All things that would have meant little...IF we had that view in the pictures off the deck!

The good news is that the "Shack" is cute and comfortable, the location somewhat convenient, and the response of Nicole and John were appreciated when we told of the dry-rotted beach chair...we did have brand-new chairs the last day of our stay!

The last piece of the puzzle was the lateness of response by Carol to questions leading up to our stay in Rincon...like how to find the house. After finding our way to the bar, we met a guy by the name of Dennis. And while he was very affable, he did not make it known that he was an owner and his wife was Carol! Strange situation! No one ever came to the "Shack" to see how we were doing or collect the other half of their money. So we assumed that our card would be charged...finally all that was worked out.

But back to the view...None existent...until you make it down the steep hill!

I loved this place. It's right up the hill from sandy beach and some nice restaurants and gift shops. Jakes Java is down the hill too. Dennis (one of the owners) is like the mayor of Rincòn. The food at the sushi bar was good and the rum punch is only $4!

Stayed at all the available locations. Had a blast at them all. I like the cabanas because the beach is just steps away. Places were always clean and stocked ( almost always with leftover booze from the previous occupants). Owners are super nice, she brought me her own blender to help make our mangoritas. All the rooms came with washers/ dryers which was very helpful on a long stay. Would stay there again even though we moved to the area not far away.

This is tucked away and simply amazing. You are ocean front with a private beach. What could be better? It's super quiet and private.
It's managed by a great guy eliar who was super helpful.
It was clean and had air- which you don't need because of the amazing ocean breeze.
Since there are only two units in the building there is virtually NO noise and not many people to see. In fact we didn't see our other residents at all!
There's a nifty outdoor shower and two hammocks to lounge in.
You are right across from pools bar and grill and rincon taco. And just down the street (walking) from bar tambu for a little nightlife. I def recommend this place.
Has wifi, but I could never connect. Although I'm sure if I said something to eliar he would have corrected. But it was just the place to unplug and connect with the beauty of nature and the sea.
Ps- also a great place for whale watching- saw a few great spouts!!!
Enjoy!
Thank Brigittegold
