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.
Rincon is located on the west coast known as Porta del Sol which translates to "Doorway to the Sun". Rincon is known as the surfing capital of the world. 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!

“Best place ever!!”
I can't write everything I want to say about Ms. Jean and her beautiful home, because it would literally fill up 3 pages. So I will try to keep it as short as I can. I read every single review before I booked her home. And it is because of what those reviews said, that I decided on her place. And they were 100% accurate. Her home is immaculate. As soon as I walked in, I could feel the cleanliness. There were 6 of us. One couple in their late 40's, one couple in there late 60's and one couple who were almost 80yrs old. All of us loved her home. The rooms are big and comfortable. All 3 bedrooms have air conditioning units and Tv's. That's very important to those of us who cannot sleep without air conditioning and can't fall asleep unless we watch some TV first. The landscaping is gorgeous. And I have to mention something, because it might be as important to someone as it was to me. My mother who traveled with me is deathly afraid of cockroaches, especially water bugs. It is her phobia. My father has a phobia of spiders. And believe me when I tell you, we never saw a single bug. Not inside the house OR outside of the house. Ms. Jean exterminates the property and keeps everything so neat and orderly that bugs don't want to live there because there's no place to hide. Ms. Jean is the best host ever!! We didn't get to meet Mr Harry, he flew out to visit their children. But Ms. Jean helped us with whatever we needed. She lives on the 2nd floor. But if that concerns you, don't even worry about it. She is not hovering over you. Or being intrusive in any way. You don't even see her unless you call her. And she is a wealth of information. Knows the best places to eat and visit. She is the sweetest person. She provides everything you need for the beach. And when you get back she has a basket by the front door so you can put all your wet stuff and she will wash it for you. She also has a clothesline on the side of the house where you can hang up your bathing suit if you prefer. We divided our week in PR and had reserved half the days in Rincon and half the days on the East side of the Island. What a mistake that turned out to be. The house we stayed in when we went to the Rio Grande was not only double the price of Ms. Jean's house, but it cannot hold a candle to Ms. Jean's. If you are trying to decide what side of the island to visit and where to stay, do yourself a favor and pick Rincon, and Harry and Jean's home. We felt so comfortable and so safe in Rincon. In conclusion, because of Jean's warm hospitality we are already planning our next visit. And this time we will stay the whole week in her home.
“Perfect place to vacation with the family, friends or your better half!”
Everything was perfect! We don't have any complaints at all. Jean and Harry are a super nice couple. They enjoy what they do! I was worried about the 4 teens (14 years old) that we have because they always complaint about everything but for my surprise that loved the place too!!! I will definetly rent the place again! We had an spectacular short vacation! Thanks Jean and Harry for all your attentions.
We had a great time vacationing with friends at villa sol. The house was great and the atmosphere on the patio was so relaxing. The owners are friendly and so helpful--I highly recommend a stay here to anyone who wants a relaxing vacation.
“Villa Sol - A Perfect Rincon Experience!”
Everything about Villa Sol is awesome! My wife and I have stayed in many vacation rentals in Rincon over the years and none have been any better! We arrived at 3:30am and our host Jean Hopkins was wide awake when we pulled in from the 25 minute trip from the airport. She gave us the essential tour of our first floor abode for the next two weeks and then tactfully said "Good night". We stayed in the spacious rear bedroom with full tile bath and it is perfect. Air conditioned (as are all four bedrooms); quality furnishings, large comfortable bed, flat screen TV, door to the side garden and on and on... The living room is large with plenty of seating and a large flat screen TV. Two ceiling fans keep the room cool. The kitchen is large and fully equipped with a large dining table which we barely used because... We ate outside in the front dining area which is covered from the elements, has great lighting, ceiling fan, large gas grill, lots of seating, etc. just great! Villa Sol is located in a nice Puerto Rican neighborhood and is a 5 minute walk to the beach. There is no shortage of safe, sandy beaches in Rincon, yours to enjoy! Be aware, that Puerto Rico means that there are chickens and Roosters around and if that bothers you just turn the aC on when you turn in and that's it! Some of our favorite sports are the Patio Familiar, Calypso (a must), Red Flamboyan, Joe's, Taniao Divers and pizza at the Lazy Parrot - great real thin crust pie! If you really want some local color stop by La Estationato or Eddie Caro's to see if a beer or two will get the gentlemen singing sweet Puerto Rican songs. Jean can point you in the right direction. As a host Jean is wonderful and will give you as much or little guidance according to your needs. When we left, she had tears in her eyes. That sums Jean up. Oh, and don' forget the sunsets!
“The Perfect Vacation House”
We rented both the ground floor with four bedrooms and the upper apartment so the space was perfect for our group of nine people. With Corcega Beach only two blocks away, and other beaches a short drive, we spent plenty of time swimming and walking on the sand. Jean and Harry are excellent hosts and provided everything we would need, both in the house and at the beach. Rincon is a quiet town, almost a different world from the high rise buildings and crowded beaches of San Juan. This was a perfect place for our family to stay and we had a vacation that we will remember forever.
“Home away from home!”
Jean was a fantastic host. She help us out any way she could and also was great for conversation. The house was perfect for a group of 7 of us. Very clean, spacious, and close to town and the beach. Can't wait to return!
“Great Rincon rental by the beach”
I stayed here a couple days with my family (a total of 7 people) before heading to San Juan, taking up all the bottom floor, which has four bedrooms. It was perfect for us, had everything we needed, a short (5 min) walk from the beach down the street. Our kids stayed in a bedroom adjacent to ours and there was s pack 'n play for our littlest. Jean and Harry were very friendly and happy to do some laundry for us and provided us with beach towels and fruit that grows on their property. I made use of some of their aloe plants for a bad sunburn as well. It's not super upscale or spotless, but that helps keep the cost very reasonable for the size of the place. It was very hot in PR when we were there and sometimes it took a little while for the window units to cool the place off after we turned them on when coming back to the house, other than that no complaints really.
“Comforts of home away from home”
We enjoyed a week in this rental property and will recommend it to anyone. Jean and Harry provided a great service and keep the property in excellent conditions. They are very knowledgeable of the area and provided us with suggested places to eat. We can't thank them enough for their hospitality.
“A great stay for your time away!”
Jean and Harry's villa was a great place to stay during our Rincon vacation. The four bedroom, three bath house was clean, comfortable, and just a short walk to the beach. Jean and Harry provide everything you need to enjoy the beach; so don't fuss about bringing beach supplies. Jean gave me great directions and even waited up to make sure we arrived safe and sound. I always felt safe in my surroundings and Jean and Harry's beautiful little yard is also a great place to hang out and relax. I would certainly stay there again.
“Perfect family vacation spot”
Jean & Harry were wonderful hosts. They were always available to answer our questions, give directions or make suggestions. The house was nice and had plenty of room for a family of 5. We could walk to the beach, grocery store or several fast food restaurants. The neighborhood was friendly and I felt quite comfortable walking around admiring the scenery. There were plenty of options for dining out (or eating in) and it's a short drive to the rain forest, lighthouse at Cabo Roho or other attractions.
