adventure for the Summers family at Sunset Paradise! Our first trip to
Puerto Rico and, while the sea didn't cooperate for scuba diving, beaches,
etc., were beautiful. Sunsets were also unbeatable! Best restaurants
were Black Eagle, The Landing, and great mofongo at El Bambino. Enjoyed
the conversation with the owner of the maritime museum at El Faro
lighthouse. The house is beautiful - a perfect setting for our
Thanksgiving Caribbean vacation. Our thanks for the use of your lovely
Bruce and Barbara Summers & Ben, Bethany & Bryna Wheat Ridge, Colorado
Paradise has offered us a true week in Paradise. The food, the people and
the beautiful sunsets have renewed our spirits. Thank you for the use of
your most hospitable casa.
Bruce & Denise Allen of Bettendorf, Iowa
trip to Rincon in 18 months and we've found the perfect perch at last.
When you were talking about developing a marketing stategy, it struck me
that this area is a real Margaritaville for stressed out east-coasters
like us. Its easy enough to get to, which makes long weekend getaways
possible, and once here, you don't have to be a tourist in the sense of
feeling obliged to see and do a list of stuff. The view, the
beach-walking, the comfort of Unit #2 Upper and if you do venture out, the
people who are so helpful-thatís all we need. (some terrific restaurants,
too.) We've never ready to leave without knowing when we're coming back,
so see you in March.
Bill & Karen Raman, Scarsdale NY
and view are lovely We were much impressed by your excellent guidebook!!
Explored the town, map was very useful and we bought fresh fish down the
beach. Find that you want to be home when the sun sets from

spacious verandah framed by palm trees and almond trees overlooking an
endless vista of blue and green water is a picture that I will always hold
dear. The beauty of this setting and the comfort of this villa surpassed
all my expectations.

HOUSE! We had a great time here. Thank you for everything!
here in this location was wonderful. The facilities were excellent. My
family and I would want to come back for another vacation. Thank you very
Our stay is
Puerto Rico was wonderful and the facilities you provided were just as
wonderful. When we arrived everything was orderly and clean. This is a
perfect spot for a vacation. Everything was perfect. The kitchen
facilities were very good. We hope to return again the coming year. We
had a wonderful time. Everything was great. The kids had a lot of fun.
It was a wonderful experience especially for the kids. We hope to come
Familia Castro, Colon, Barreto Vasalles
was the most laid back and relaxed one. We were able to enjoy each other
(my husband & I) and at the same time enjoy the scenery, the ocean, the
fishing, the hammock, the sun (even though I got burnt so bad I couldn't
go out in the sun for 3 days), the waves. Me and Ricardo enjoyed the
fishing a lot, May God bless all of those who will be spending their
vacation here! I will spread the word of this wonderful place so others
could enjoy. Have a great and blessed time!
Ricardo & Olga, Miami Lakes
had an absolutely idyllic stay here. This house is so clean and
comfortable and the porch/patio is bliss! The water was heavenly, also, a
lovely temperature and gentle waves. We join with all the previous
comments on the Island Queen. A fantastic, competent, nice organization.
We had never snorkeled before, but Palmer had us swimming around seeing
the sights in no time. They were a pleasure to do business with. Our ride
to Desecheo Island was unexpectedly rough, but Palmer is a careful pilot,
and he smoothed out the swells as much as possible. You will not go wrong
using them for snorkeling. Truly a paradise! Pedro was wonderful, very
information, sunsets were great (6pm). Great place to vacation. Next
time, Iíll go fishing with Pedro. Iíll be back.
We like the
location, both for its beauty and its accessibility to town, etc. We
walked. Enjoyed having the good music in the house. Son Donny liked the
house but stayed in the hills near the surf. (for surfers) Lovely
sunsets! Sorry to go.
Ellen and Company
not all that many places you stay that you feel very much at home but our
family loved all the facilities that you had to offer. Once again many
thanks from us all.
to drop a line to say how much we enjoyed ourselves in Puerto Rico. What a
prime piece of real estate! Your place was so peaceful...the sound of the
surf was just what tired souls needed! We truly enjoyed ourselves, and
Gladys and Hector were most helpful to us. They helped us locate fresh
lobster from a guy named Freddy. It was exquisite! Thanks again for the
lovely accommodations. My Aunt Iris really enjoyed the time we spent
the great vacation spot ... you guys have done a great job with the place.
We loved the big porch and of course, the sunsets! Santos, and all the
others were nice and helpful. Thanks again for a super place.
spots are excellent. This is a side of Heaven.

accommodations. Puerto Rico is a warm, friendly place to visit. The
people go out of their way to be helpful. On more than one occasion, when
we asked directions, the people offered to show us the way, and let us
follow. The managers, Gladys and Hector are kind people and will go out of
their way to help you. Wish we had more time to stay longer. And yet if
we could stay longer, Iím not sure we would budge away from this deck and
the sound of the surf.

This is our
last night here ad we have to say that we have had a wonderful relaxing,
quiet time here. We didnít get to visit many places but all we wanted was
to lay back and enjoy the house, the porch and the view. The house was
nice and everything was perfect.
Nelson and Iris
bless all of those who will be spending their vacation here! I will
spread the word of this wonderful place so others could enjoy.
amazing week here in Rincon, we are ready to return to the world. The
trip to Desecheo Island for snorkeling and discovery dives was absolutely
incredible. The dive caption helped us acquire fresh lobster and tuna,
costing next to nothing. We all enjoyed the house very much. It has
been a nice quiet getaway. The beach was great for laying in the sun and
finding beautiful sea shells. The neighbors are all very friendly and
would help anyone.

Colleen, Randy, Zachary and Jessica Ernesti of Buffalo, Minnesota
family had a fabulous time. The children enjoyed the games and the
water. The grandparents liked sitting upstairs on the roof in the
evening. What we really liked about this place is the beach, so beautiful
and uncrowded, with pelicans and seagulls, fish jumping out of the water
and crabs on the sand. Weíll definitely be back.
The Ayales of Fremond, CA and Guaynabo, PR
wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Villa 1 from 12/11
to 12/16. The weather was perfect - every day! The 6 of us so enjoyed our
ďrelaxingĒ stay. The patio was our favorite place - hardly left it. We
tried a number of local restaurants which turned out to be very good. So,
thanks again and I hope to visit Rincon again soon!
Lyn Forker of Wappingers Falls, NY
had a perfect holiday at the Sunset Paradise Villas. Everything was
wonderful and having the family together at this special time in such a
special place gave us the best holiday ever! We didnít miss the
Northeastern Christmas at all. We even were able to tnd a Christmas pine
tree in San Juan and brought it out. We had many family and friends visit
us over the nine days away and they all walked out with a brochure. Our
family in San Juan will probably be calling with a reservation soon. They
all loved your house. Your next door neighbor, Nelson Noriega. was
charming and friendly and helpful and a whole lot of fun. He made our
connection to the community so very interesting. From our 4-month old baby
cousin, to my 84-year old mother. Thank you very, very much for a
wonderful Rincon holiday. We hope to make this a family tradition.
Judith Langan of NY, NY
delighted with the accommodations. It was great to getaway to such a
beautiful place. I fell in love with your hammock. Thank you so much for
sharing your house with us. My wife Nancy & I want to go back, but Iím
afraid it wonít be for a couple of years. If you would like for me to
write a recommendation on the net or elsewhere, just let me know.
short note to thank you for the wonderful stay at you villa last week. We
appreciate the hospitality, the convenience and the welcoming you have
created. Hector and Gladys were most accommodating and helpful. We both
enjoyed our time in Rincon so much that are considering purchasing
property for investment as well as personal use. I will like to get your
across the ideal property. We hope to book the upstairs when we visit next
time, will be back in touch. Again, thank you for everything.
Cynthia & Jackson Peng NY, NY
confirmed now... your villas are very appropriately named! Thank you so
much for the opportunity to stay at your place in Rincon (I learned that
is a long "o" in Rincon while I was there). The only bad part of the
entire trip was having to leave. Loved being able to start off the
taking a dip in the ocean just a few steps away. Here are some of the
things I learned during the trip: 1. As a passenger in the car driven by
J.R. - I will bring a blindfold to minimize the screams and white
knuckles around every corner. 2. I will pack a 1/4 of what I brought the
first time 3. I will take a nap in the hammock - gosh we were on the go!
4. I will leave the horse back riding to the professionals.
5. I won't
give navigation directions by stating "turn left at the Medalla sign" - as
there is a Medalla sign on practically every corner. 6. I will wait to
take off my snorkeling gear until I am out of the water as opposed to
tossing it on the beach and see it get washed away by the waves:) 7. I
will show up to the "beside the point" afternoon reggae band before it's
over 8. I will buy those surfing shorts I regretted not buying 9. I will
import my own licorices - some people didn't even know what it was. 10. I
will stay at least one extra day
Tevis from Iowa
small note to let you know that we enjoyed our family vacation at Sunset
Paradise. The location, views, accommodations, snorkeling, nearby
attractions (and costs too) were just perfect! Gladys was also very
hospitable and helped out wherever needed. My only regret was that I could
not stay longer. We're so looking forward to returning to your villa(s)
for a big family reunion next summer.
Sandie Colon Miami, Florida
We had a
wonderful time in Rincon and our family enjoyed the villa and all the
places and people the fishing village had to offer. We found ourselves
going to Emelina's far too often for pan de agua and quesitos! Gladys and
Hector were so very helpful and we feel like we developed a friendship
Nita Michels from Minnesota
We had a
good time at the villa. Didn't do much. Watched the pelicans (no
whales). Visited my second cousin and other Pennocks . Sightsaw, swam,
at the spectacular sunsets and magnificent white clouds. Mahi mahi at the
Black Eagle. Wow! The villa is really lovely. So well furnished and
comfortable. Sunset Paradise deserves the name and is on our list for our
Tony, Susie, Mike, and Jan Pennock
like to thank you for the best accommodation in villa 2. This was my first
visit as well as my kids to Puerto Rico and it was unbelievable. My son
Anthony & daughter Alysha did not want to leave the villa. We all loved
getting up in the morning and going for a swim in the beach, which is in
the backyard. At night, we would just sit on the beach looking at the
stars and wetting are feet. My son would say, ďMom this is the lifeĒ.
The villa was very comfortable and clean, the view breath taking. Nice
quiet get away everything was perfect. My daughter collected shells on the
beach. All in all ďIT WAS PERFECT! BEAUTIFUL, COMFORTABLE, CLEAN FAMILY
PLACE TO STAY. I will recommend the Sunset Paradise to friends,
family even enemies! I will definitely be staying over at the Sunset
Paradise and thatís what it is. My brother will be calling you next year,
I gave him the brochure already. The money was well spent. See you next
year!! AGAIN, THANK YOU FOR A UNFORGETTABLE VACATION. SUNSET PARADISE,
RINCON PR IS THE VACATION SPOT!!!
Velez, Anthony, Alysha & Alfredo Gonzalez
back to work today...I would much prefer hanging out on the porch at the
villa. I just wanted to tell you that we had a GREAT time. It was almost
perfect weather...a few showers each day but not too bad. The roads to
Mayaquez flood often, huh? That was a fun experience ;-). My only
complaint was the directions from San Juan. We eventually figured it out
but it took us 3.5 hours to get there...but much shorter to get back when
we figured it out...maybe I will write up better direction for those of us
who are "directionally challenged" ;-). The house was great and I have
been raving about it to all of my friends and colleagues and anyone else
who will listen. I will definitely be back at some point...I am trying to
get my sisters to plan a vacation together and P.R. and your place are top
of my list!
Thanks again for a great place to stay which added to our wonderful time.
I will get your ďofficial" evaluation out in the mail soon. I didn't get a
chance to leave a message in the book because neither of us had a pen and
there was not one anywhere in the house. Oh well...next time. Take care
Lombardo Assistant Director International Students and Scholars Office
just received our deposit back and it reminded me that I wanted to send
you a little note about our visit to Rincon. It was lovely. Hector and
Gladys are thoroughly delightful--attentive and friendly. We really
enjoyed the neighborhood setting and the quiet beaches...it was a real
slice of something different for us.
What is the
availability of lower Villa 1 next January? end of March? We are working
on some friends to go down with us next time--so perhaps the availability
of the other units might be helpful as well.
We will be
working on our Spanish!
Thanks--your properties are very nice.
wanted to let you know how much my husband and I enjoyed our stay in
Rincon. Even though we were disappointed that Upper Villa I was booked at
the time we needed, we were so appreciative of the help you gave us.
Everything you said about Rincon was true - we will try to come back often
and will be in touch immediately to rent from you next time. We did walk
by your villas several times - they really are special..
to thank you again for a wonderful visit to the villa! We had a great time
and the weather was wonderful! We look forward to coming down again next

Caren Levin - Blue Bell PA
I never came around
after the stay to thanking you for the incredible time we had at the
Villa. Especially the children. They had a great time at the beach. Plus
they were able to see some dolphins pass by. It was also extremely
relaxing. Laying back in the hammock, catching that refreshing sea breeze,
while listening to the breaking tide ... wish I were there right now. Just
getting away from the everyday routine without having to leave the island
was definitely the way to go.
Jose G. Rodriguez
to thank you once again for letting us stay at villa 2 upper - we had a
really great time. Judy and I also really liked the tour you gave us of
villa 1 upper. I think the next time we come to rincon, we will try to
rent that one since it looks perfect for a couple. Hope your 3 week trip
down there is successful and relaxing.
Jake and Judy McMahon
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Jugenheimer,
We just wanted to thank you for allowing us the opportunity to stay at
your Villa 1 upper. It was truly a beautiful, if not magical...but all
too short vacation. The Villa itself was immaculate and the layout was
absolutely fabulous. It was fit for a king...and queen. The upfront and
personal view of the beach and ocean was awesome and the weather was
great. We found that as each day unfolded the total experience was even
more breathtaking than the day before.
Thank you again for providing us with the opportunity to use your home.
It was absolutely fantastic and will long be remembered. Wishing you
well. May your days be blessed. Sincerely,
Ron Rubin and Jolie Arenas
Just wanted to thank you for the fabulous family vacation at Villa 2. We
had such a wonderful time. Everything was perfect (weather too) and Gladys
took such good care of us. You have done an outstanding job with the
marketing and presentation of the units. The detailed information book,
logo mugs and helpful recommendations
made the trip special. It was the perfect combination of a luxury home in
a quaint seaside town. Sadly, we are back to reality and many inches of
snow here in Massachusetts. We would like to book the villa for next
Christmas if possible. Sunset Paradise is the first place everyone in the
family voted to do a return
visit to. I'm looking at Monday, Dec. 22 to Tuesday the 30th. You can
charge our credit card for the booking deposit or I can send you a check
whichever you prefer.
