Guest Book Villa Sol
"Best place in Rincon"
Our family of 8 stayed at Villa Sol for a week, August 17-24. We were immediately
welcomed by friendly, helpful, caring Jean and Harry and the trip just got better from
there! The house was immaculately clean, very spacious and conveniently located to a
beautiful beach within a very short walk (less than 5 minutes). The kitchen was well
stocked for our needs. Anything we needed was a short drive nearby. There was even
a great restaurant within a very short walk (Nativo, maybe an 8 minute walk). Jean and
Harry made sure we had clean towels everyday, clean sheets whenever we wanted and
even offered to do laundry for us! We were provided with beach chairs, towels, snorkel
gear and "noodles". Jean and Harry were always there for advice, suggestions and for
any minor problem we had. There was delicious star fruit growing in the yard, for our
picking, and Harry picked us great avocados, too. With our car rental, we were able to
see and do a lot of things in Rincon and travel further around Puerto Rico, too. We all
had a wonderful time at Villa Sol and highly recommend it.
Just A Few For Villa Sol
Jean and Harry's house was perfect for our vacation. It's just a two minute walk from a
stunning beach, set in a Puerto Rican neighborhood complete with chickens and lots of
local flavor. Jean and Harry are friendly and helpful and answered all our questions
about where to go and what to do, provided beach chairs and snorkel equipment, and
gave us fresh beach towels every day. The outdoor dining area was a treat, and
included a hammock; it made the house feel even larger. We ate three meals a day out
there (when we weren't at the beach!) The house was sparkling clean. Our group of 7
had plenty of space in 4 bedrooms/3 baths. Ceiling fans and A/C kept it very
comfortable in the heat. Definitely recommended!
Even with all of the high praise others lavished on Villa Sol I was somewhat skeptical.
However, the accomodations and hosts were, indeed, great. The house was
exceptionally clean, the beds VERY comfortable, and the overall atmosphere was
relaxed and very enjoyable. Jean and Harry were gracious, funny, and helpful. There
when you needed them, but never over-bearing or too visible. My family had one of the
best and most relaxing vacations at Villa Sol. I don't often return to vacation spots but
my family very well may return here. We felt right at home from the moment we arrived.
Thanks Jean & Harry for such a wonderful experience!!
What can we say that hasn't been said before? Jean, Harry and their son were some of the most pleasant ,
accomadating and generally nicest people we've met. Their home was as advertised - Spacious, clean (We wish Jean
could be in charge of some of the hotels we stayed at!!!)and close to a lovely beach within a 2-3 minute walk. My family
(Wife, 20 year old & 9 old daughters) and in-laws (Mid- 70's originally from Puerto Rico) all enjoyed ourselves
immensely. We were on our first vacation in over two years and intially stood at a resort in Guanica for the first four
days of our vacation. The next four days we stood in Rincon @ Villa Sol for day trips to check the sights, beaches, etc.
My girls got a little lazy so we ended up for the most part enjoying the lovely beach down the street and Vila Sol. Jean
and Harry have everything you need - beach chairs, boogie boards, tubes and beach towels. They even offered to
wash our swimsuits but I think it was a ploy for Harry to get his hands at my green floral trunks!! (Private joke) Highly
recommend a stay - They are so helpful with regards to sights, food, bars, etc - They just love that side of the island
and they fit in perfectly because the locals are just as friendly as they are.
First and foremost it's a H O M E - And after you unwind a bit it starts to feels a little like your own home. Nuff said!
This was my first trip to Puerto Rico and my wife and I enjoyed it very much.Harry and Jean are most gracious
hosts.The beach is a short walk away and has beautiful sunsets along with a nice little bar/outdoor restaurant.There
are lots of sights to see in easy driving distance.Everyone we met or saw on the streets were very friendly and we are
in the process of making plans to return as soon as possible.
"A Rose in Paradise"
Have you ever sat back and closed your eyes...drifted to that magical place of
solace...imagined sipping on a pina colada, staring into clear skies while having
pristine waves tickle your toes, soaking up the suns kisses...watching the mammoth
ocean chew on coconuts and spit them back out? Villa Sol is a best-kept secret away
from the rush. Its a rose in Paradise. Jean and Harry are a couple that I hope my
husband and I grow to be. They are thoughtful, caring, thorough and detail oriented.
Together, a double threat! Very mom and Pop. You see, I could describe the
elaborate vacation my family and I had...but it would have not been as special or
accommodating if it wasn't for Jean and Harry. My husband and I travelled with our
infant and two small children. Who do you know will call and let you know they have
made it their personal mission to place a crib and high chair in before your arrival? Or
being stuck in traffic and having food available for your hungry family? (3 girls that
have the appetite of their father!) My point is this...I can not speak of the vacation I
have with out touching on the core rock of why it was so memorable and easy. It was
because of Jean and Harry. The home away from home that always kept the light on.
This is the second time vacationing here and upon return, will be the only place we
stay. I miss them like family...but just like the waves that tickled my toes while I sipped
my pina colada, we'll return and see each other once more.
