The apartment is located with it's own fishing village where you can buy fresh fish and lobsters directly from the fishermen and local colmado with $1. beers.

Best Vacation, perfect week!

January 16, 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Barrero Beach Apartment. The apartment was absolutely perfect, snuggled quietly in a fisherman's community the apartment really immerses you in the town. We had the time of our lives, my husband surfed practically every day and we enjoyed long walks and swimming on the Barrero beach. Pillar was a pleasure and made sure we were comfortable! The apartment had everything we could need for cooking, it was honestly the perfect vacation for my husband and I. We would absolutely recommend staying at the Barrero Beach apartment if you are looking to travel to Rincon.

Charming but dated

December 17, 2013

We enjoyed our brief stay at this property in Rincon. As advertised, the property is convenient to everything one would want to do in the Rincon area; however, it is a bit off primary roads. Anyone driving needs to know that the drive up to the property is quite steep and the access road in poor condition. The property's proximity to good beaches is excellent. The property owners live on site and are very kind, welcoming and accommodating, which made our visit more enjoyable. If there was any one thing that I would have wished to be better, it would be the cleanliness of the apartment. The unit needs a very deep cleaning to make it truly comfortable.

beach front in rincon

March 6, 2013

Our 2 bedroom apt was just enough for myself, my husband, and our two young children. The pool was nice after a day at the beach. There is a beach across street which is nice. and it was within walking distance of grocery, park, etc. Our apt. was clean and came with everything we needed, plus.

We loved our stay at the Barrero Beach Apartment in Rincon. The studio apartment was fully furnished and was very clean. It had everything we needed for our 8 day stay. The view from the patio was so beautiful. It was great having a nice beach and fishing "village" right down the end of the street. I like Barrero area of Rincon better than the Sandy area because it is more not as touristy. The owner, Joe, was very helpful in providing information on what to do and where to eat. We had a great time staying at the Barrero Beach Apartment, and would not hesitate to stay there again.

Relaxing and Beautiful

July 2, 2012

We had a wonderful time in Rincon and have fallen in love with the locale. Joe and his family were very nice to us and made us feel right at home. The view is stunning and the location is perfect, as you are minutes away from everything in Rincon. We took many day trips and ate at excellent restaurants, but most importantly, for us, the location was peaceful enough to get a good rest and write. Thanks Joe!

We had a great time here. An excellent deal for an apartment - only a couple minutes walk to the beach. Almost everything we needed was at the apartment. Thanks Joe and Pilar!

Great location, better people

April 25, 2011

We rented the flat from Joe and Pilar through the web. Research showed that Joe had lived in the area for some time, but still you always wonder on the web. Fear not. Arrived after midnight but without thought we were met at 1:00 am by Joe. The next morning he brought coffee, flowers, and information. The view was awesome and the water was great. We now consider Joe and Pilar friends. A great Vacation and we are sure to return to PR and this great place.

We went there for the games, soccer was canceled so we made the best of our vacation. The view is overwhelming. Breakfast everyday on the porch was the best. Roadways need a little repairing. Hosts were very hospitable gave us insights to where to visit. Waterfalls in San Sebastion were the best. Would love to return

Perfect place to stay

July 27, 2010

This place is absolutely fabulous! Everything we needed was close by. The apartment had everything we needed and items we didn't even know we needed. Clean, great layout, private and quiet. The pool is just the right size and very private. The view from the pool deck is breathtaking. The neighborhood is a mix of residences, eateries and other vacation rentals. It's a real surfer town! For convenience, comfort and price, this place can't be beat.

Our Trip to PR

May 28, 2010

We just got back from our trip to PR!! We loved our stay in our little beach apartment. Although the place isn't fancy or luxurious it was perfect for us. The view is amazing and the apartment was very clean. The AC worked great and the beds were comfy! There is no bath but it has a very large shower. There isn't a lot of hot water but who wants to take a hot steamy shower in a hot humid place? We didn't spend a lot of time in the apartment because we were gone almost every day visiting the island but it was the perfect place for us to crash at night and have a peaceful breakfast in the morning on the balcony. The beaches are beautiful but there is not much to do or see in Ricon this time of year because the waves (and surfers) are gone. The roads are scary but that's just PR, you get used to it. Thanks Joe for the great place to stay!

Barrero Beach HOUSE Review...not the apartment

February 1, 2010

We stayed in the Barrero beach house, not the apartment. It is literally right on the beach. We loved it but you should be aware there is no hot water. This is common throughout the island. The shower had been modified but we never got it to work. We rented the second floor and had beautiful views of the sunset and loved eating on the balcony. The house is well supplied and was VERY VERY clean. If you are looking for a luxurious experience, this is not for you. The furnishings are adequate but older, It's not fancy. But if you are looking to really experience PR as the locals do, this is your place. There is a coral reef right out the back gate and swimming just about 50 yards from there. Yard is fenced so it would be perfect for kids. Found lots to see and do right in Rincon but also LOT within an hours drive of the house. Fishing village is next door, fun watching them come in and out. If you are coming as a couple, I'd make sure the other section is not rented out to a family with kids since you share the back yard. But we never heard ONE thing from downstairs, the concrete house is quiet for sure! Perks were a washing machine, gas grill, Cable TV and a large hammock to watch the famous Rincon sunsets. Only About 35 minutes from the Aguadilla airport. We would surely stay here again, even if we bring the kids. There isn't internet..but there are plenty of places in Rincon with free Wi-Fi. Joe was a great host and lives just a block away

We had a wonderful time at the Barrero Beach Apt. The views from the terrace are exceptional. The swimming right at the end of the driveway was excellent! We also enjoyed watching the surfers just a short drive north of Rincon. We will definitely come back to enjoy the sun and waves in the future.

good times....

January 11, 2009

Everything was great, the place was clean, and close to what we needed. The only thing out of Joe's control is are the small roads. They can be intimidating when your on a cliff by the beach and their is another car coming and two cannot fit thru....

Sunsets are the most magnificent best seen from the patio- Great anywhere. We used the beach entirely to ourselves...snorkelling, swimming, walking, reading... Resting constantly sea sound is soothing to the soul. Sheila and Bob fom Albany, NY

What a wonderful, relaxing days we had here. The Barrero Beach Apartment was perfect! We kept the french doors open to enjoy the breeze and the sound of the ocean waves... enjoyed morning coffee and evening sunsets on the beautiful patio, and swam at the lovely beach. Joe was incredibly helpful with suggestions for local restaurants and places to visit. WE HOPE TO RETURN SOON!
Elizabeth and Walter, from Boston MA

Had a wonderful and very relaxing vacations! We travel a lot and this is definitely one of our nicest vacations. We tried to do everything- visiting the Radio Telescope, Camuy Caves, Old San Juan, Ponce, Cabo Rojo Lighthouse. We went with Pilar and Joe (our hosts) on several trips: waterfalls, really great puertorrican restaurants; he even cooked us a couple of meals "great cook" on his balcony. Both of you made us feel welcome and relaxed. Never had a problem and beaches were the best in Rincon. Hope to come back. Norman and Cecile, from Ohio.

We had the most relaxing weeks of our winter vacation. Our private balcony was a perfect place where we spent hours reading, talking and enjoying the beautiful sunsets. We enjoyed visiting several places on the Island,... the local bars and restaurants in Rincon are really nice...we like Barrero Beach Apartment because is a secluded area as we was looking for...the beach was our "private beach" where we enjoyed walking, swimming, reading... We'll back! Mel,from England
