Looking for recommendations for private vacation home rental

Hello! Looking for recommendations for a private house rental in Rincon. We're interested in quiet, relaxing area with water views. Not interest in apartments or condos or attached villas with neighbors. Private/quiet being the keys. There's just two of us, but we're open to renting a larger place if it's the right place for us :-) We spent 5 days in Old San Juan last January and really loved it. This time, we'd like to experience another part of the island, less touring around and more sitting around paired with meals out at interesting places :-) Any and all recommendations by those of you with local knowledge is greatly appreciated!

Quiet, detached beach view rentals come with a price. Check out www.clasificadosonline.com short term rental options, or TAs rental site. There are a few houses nearby steps beach.

Thanks, Beach. Didn't think it'd be cheap :-) I have checked out many listings...while there are some houses that might suit, I am finding many more condos & apartments (or houses that are *too* big). Was just hoping perhaps somebody might have recommendations/experience with a place in particular.

I would suggest looking on VRBO or Homeaway, they have some on those sites.

http://www.vrbo.com/513283 This is the place we are staying at in Feb. 2015 but haven't stayed before so I can't give a review yet.

Thanks bj ~ I generally do look thru Homeaway, Vbro and other such sites. Nice to have personal recommendations, though, thanks. The one shared looks decent on the water, but shows booked fro our dates :-( I might inquire anyway. Websites are notorious for calendar not necessarily being up to date. Thanks again.

If you are planning on renting between dec-march a condo could be fine. Not many locals tend to go to beach on that time because it is our "winter season", lol.

Still make sure your stay is not during surfing contests dates, because it will be crowded. I think there is a world surfing contest during February .

Good point about the surf contests - thanks for mentioning. We are planning late January. Also considering Vieques on the other side as a possibility....
