Bill & Joyce
We are not part of a large corporation, but run our properties ourselves with direct contact with many of our guests. We have been in business for over 23 years and are very involved with all aspects of the business. We are always making improvements to our properties in order to maintain the highest standards and to ensure high guest satisfaction.
My wife, Joyce, and I are originally from Iowa. I have always been involved in real estate and Joyce worked as a teacher and later, career counselor at a private university. We have one amazing daughter, Alexis who graduated from Fort Lewis College in Durango CO. We enjoy the Ocean and traveling back to Puerto Rico as much as we can.
Also another very important part of our family are our dogs .We have brought back from Puerto Rico several strays or “Satos” (beach dog) to our home here in Arizona and they quickly become a huge part of our family. We love dogs and like to support them in any way possible. We support ARF of Rincon http://arfrincon.org an animal rescue foundation in Rincon, Puerto Rico and DAR (Defensa Animal de Rincon) http://defensarincon.org. We also support other dog rescue organizations. Our latest rescue is “Princess” Sophie who we adopted in March of 2014 from Barb’s Dog Rescue in Rocky Point, Mexico.
Where It All Began…
It all started in 1995, we were on vacation in Puerto Rico and ran across a “handyman special” beachfront home (see the picture of our realtor showing us “Villa 1” for the first time). We were immediately struck by the sandy beach and breathtaking view. Thus began our Sunset Paradise Villas journey. After extensive remodeling, we decided to rent what we now lovingly call Villa 1. Within a year, we bought our second villa, which was only one story at the time, thus expanding Sunset Paradise to 2 units and started called them Villa 1 and Villa 2.
In 1996, we moved to Puerto Rico and continued to remodel and expand Villa 1 and Villa 2. Each time we expanded, we did so with the highest quality materials and décor because this was our home. Eventually, we moved back to the states and currently live in Phoenix, AZ. Because the Villas were our home, there are a number of special “touches” that aren’t found in vacation rentals … “touches” that we proudly now share with you.
In 2005, the small home next to Villa 2 became available and since our Villas were consistently rented, we decided to purchase what now is known as Villa 3. Villa 3 began as a small wooden 800 sq ft building and has grown into a large 2 story 9 bedroom Villa. It has a HUGE rooftop common area that spans both Villa 2 and Villa 3. It includes a swimming pool, spa, full bathroom with showers, several shaded areas, and lots of lounge chairs. It also has a large open area that is great for weddings and other larger gatherings. The rooftop pool is available for all of our guests to enjoy. This was a challenging project that turned out even better than we anticipated!
Why stop there? In 2014 we just completed our latest unit.. Villa 4! Back in 2013 the house next to Villa 1 became available. Again, it was in the need of a overhaul so we totally rebuilt it and and it is now the lower is a brand new 5 bedroom with 5 bathrooms and the upper is 2 bedrooms with 2 ½ baths.
These units have been designed and built by us as our homes in Puerto Rico. We take pride in providing a clean and very comfortable place for our guests to stay. It seems to be working because our guests have rated us as ONE OF THE BEST PLACES TO STAY IN RINCON PUERTO RICO!
