“This place was a great get-a-way.”
Reviewed 19 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Ocean and 8th was a great family get-away. There were 19 of us and we thoroughly enjoyed the property. My family stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment while the others stayed in the 9 bedroom villa. We enjoyed the location and would highly recommend it to everyone. Steps to the beach. Grocery just down the road.

When we decided to visit Rincon, we were 12 women making their 17th annual foray. We rented the entire house. By the time we arrived, we were 10. One had passed from us far too soon and another was dealing with the passing of someone else. So it was a smaller, but still merry band arriving at 8th & Ocean last week. We drew numbers for the rooms and quickly made this wonderful place our home for 5 days.

There were places where we could all gather as a group and other places where we could retreat for a quiet conversation or some reflective moments. The multiple kitchens provided us different venues for breakfast and dinner, with ample utensils, plates and cooking equipment. The beds were spacious and comfortable and we would have all been much lazier, enjoying the slumber, had it not been for the one full-throated rooster next door and his fledgling partner who could barely manage a croaking crackle. I will admit, had we thought that the rooster would have provided a good meal, we might have acted to eliminate the early alarm.

The view of the sunset from the 2nd floor balcony was sublime and the large covered porch on the first floor was a comfortable spot for munching snacks, drinking beer and watching the ocean. The house is so, so, so close to the ocean that several of us kept checking the first night to make sure that the waves weren't entering the kitchen. I have never slept so close to the water - it was wonderful.

We had parking for our 3 cars with nary a problem. The only issue we had was a power outage on Saturday night. The house had emergency lighting that helped and a few candles. Luckily it was at night, so we went to bed. The next morning, we solved the most serious problem of making coffee by lighting the gas stove and boiling water. We also discovered the trick of recharging cell phones from our neighbor who sat in his running car playing the radio and singing while he did his. The power problem was a blown transformer that rendered the entire block dark, but despite it happening on the weekend, electricity returned on Sunday morning.

This is a perfect house for a large group. Wilson, the property manager, was wonderful with everything including following up with the power company about the outage. And his recommendation of a particular "street vendor" for chicken, rice and beans was perfect- the food was AWESOME! Everything was clean and ready for us. The beach is readily accessible and the water is generally quite tame and very warm at this location. We even bought sardines from a fisherman casting his net one morning and had fresh fish for lunch.

Two grocery stores are close by (by car) and fresh fish are available by calling the phone number listed on signs posted on telephone polls. The Sunday morning farmer's market in town was delightful for gifts, prepared food and fresh mangos. Art galleries, including at a brewhouse, were wonderful.

I fell in love with Rincon and will always have the happiest of memories of the trip and this house. I can recommend it without reservation for families, friends, reunions, weddings, whatever. Go, enjoy and love it.

“5 STAR-Outstanding Experience-Awesome Place To Stay”

This was our 2nd year staying at 8th and the Ocean. Last year we rented the entire bottom villa and this year we rented the entire house with 19 other women. This vacation home has everything you could possibly want and more. Every single one of our guests had an outstanding time and as we were leaving, everyone said they want to do it again next year. The house with its large open air deck area, 3 kitchens, perfect location and so much to offer in so many ways is the perfect vacation spot. Wilson the caretaker is a joy to work with and was available any time. This is by far the best place to stay in Rincon and we will be back.

“Perfect little hideaway in beautiful Rincon”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

Stayed here with friends for a wedding celebration. The entire house was rented out for guests. The house was perfect!

HOUSE: There is a huge partially covered deck/patio that was large enough to accomodate the wedding reception party of about 30 guests and that doesn't include the servers/musicians. There is also plenty of seating. Inside there is plenty of room for guests to not feel cramped. The kitchen areas are nice and the house was clean. The only small inconvenience is the roosters in the neighborhood that starting sounding off at the crack of dawn each day. I bring ear plugs when I travel so not a problem for me.

LOCATION: The location couldn't have been any better except for the long drive from the San Juan airport in crazy P.R. traffic (hint: take the tolls). The beach is immediately off the patio and is very peaceful and quiet. Since this property isn't situated next to a popular beach not many people pass by the beach here. I feel this is almost a hidden secret because compared to other beaches I saw while in Puerto Rico, the surf in this area isn't near as intense. There is also plenty of palm trees for shade so even if it's really hot outside you can stay nice and cool. Rincon is a small friendly town and you feel like you are home vs. at a vacation rental. Everything you need can be found within a 1/2 mile from the rental home.

Thank you for taking the time to write the review, it describes our wedding set up and our location very well. Our patio can accommodate up to 45 people for a wedding reception and our location is ideal because you do not need a car, grocery restaurants and activities are all a short walk away....
We hope to see you down here in Rincon again soon.

“Great for Extended Family”
Reviewed 27 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We rented the entire villa for our extended family with 17 members. We really enjoyed the upstairs, Gran Vista, for family meals. The kitchen of Gran Vista was open to the dining table and living area and the AC unit kept all three areas comfortably cool. Gran Vista was light and airy and provided a great view.

The entire villa has a ton of room and everyone had a bed and a place to retreat when needed. Gran Terraza on the lower level is nice and roomy but not as light and airy because it is on the lower level but has the use of the patio area. We would suggest adding small AC units to the front living room of Gran Terraza and Casa Mar.

We had teenagers with us and were glad to find they had a secure internet connection. The connection works best upstairs or on the patio downstairs. They may need to relocate the router so the entire villa has a good signal.

As previous reviewers have noted, a neighbor has chickens with roosters. A good set of wax earplugs block out the crowing.

You can't beat the instant beach access and roominess of this rental. Wilson and Jim were very good at responding to any inquiries.

THank you, we are happy you enjoyed 8th and Ocean! The AC units we have in each bedroom and living area are for 1100 sq feet, they really do cool the entire villa if doors are left open. Unfortunately, nothing we can do about the roosters, and yes, they are everywhere in Rincon, part of the charm of being in rural Puerto Rico. You make a good point about Gran Terraa, it has a beautiful patio space, but the main living area of Gran Vista is a bit larger and more comfortable. We hope to see you down in Rincon again soon.
