“perfect location”
Reviewed 16 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

we stayed in the two bedroom apartment at the back of the building and enjoyed ourselves every minute. the property was as advertised, and clean as well as comfortable. the beach was beautiful and calm, great for swimming though I recommend footwear as the bottom is a little rough for the first twenty feet or so. most of the time we had the beach to ourselves and spent hours enjoying the peace and quiet, while sipping rum punches and laughing at our friends in ny who were digging out from a snow storm. the property manager Wilson was absolutely fabulous and quickly took care of any minor problems we had. the negatives are few and minor. the Wi-Fi was hit or miss and most of the time the signal from the condos across the street was stronger than ours if you could connect. the kitchen gear was low quality sparse knives so dull you couldn't cut a marshmellow with them. seemed a little cheap to have a coin operated washing machine that ate as many quarters as it used with only cold water available. id rather pay a few bucks more for the house and skip the trip to town for quarters. I also found it odd to pay a cleaning fee for the house and then be required to sweep all the floors before you leave, ive heard of maids that don't do windows but if they don't sweep floors maybe a different service is in order. on the whole I would easily recommend the place to a friend though and would certainly consider staying here again.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we are happy you enjoyed the villa and hope you will be back! We have been renting this property for 6 years now and have learned what works and what doesn't. Unfortunately some of the "rules" such as sweeping the floors exist because previous guests did not take car of the property while staying. We offer the coin laundry as a convenience to our guests instead of having to go to the laundromat a few blocks away. As a beachfront property, maintenance and repairs are a major expense, we try to keep our rates affordable while offering the best location and comfort.

“Outstanding-For the 3rd Year in a Row”
Reviewed 26 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

This is the 3rd year that we have rented 8th and the Ocean for our annual "girls retreat". This house is perfect. There were 20 of us and everyone had an excellent vacation. You have the beach right in front of you, an outdoor deck that is in my opinion the best part of the house, 4 kitchens in total if you rent the entire house and of course you have Wilson the caretaker that ensures everything is running smoothly. We cannot say enough good things about this property and we have already booked again for next year. 5 stars all the way.

“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.

“Funtastic!!!!”
Reviewed 19 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

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.
