A friend and I decided (pretty much randomly about a week in advance) to throw all caution to the wind and take a trip down to Puerto Rico just for the hell of it. We didn't rent a car, so we were mainly interested in finding a nice place within walking distance of some food and the beach. Astrea's place was all that and more.
Situated in a quiet area in Rincón(granted, this was during surfer off-season), we were about a 10 minute walk to a couple restaurants (one specialized in authentic Puerto Rican food, one focused on sushi and seafood, both were out of this world), a 15 minute walk to the beach, and about a 7 minute walk in the other directed to the bakery/restaurant the family owned (First time having a vegan cookie, and I was surprised at how good they were. Not my first time having a fish taco, but it may as well have been. These fish tacos were in another league. Oh, they also gave us a discount, what else could you want?).
I mentioned my friend and I didn't have a car, but we did know some people and were able to get rides every-so-often into town and around the island. If you're looking to get into town to get groceries, visit the Sunday market, or just look around, and a 45 minute walk isn't your preferred method of travel, get some kind of vehicle. We made the trek on foot once, so it's doable, but the time we had a ride was much preferable.
Now, for the Airbnb itself, well it's pretty much just as described. Clean? Check (despite musings that bugs are just a part of life on the island, we actually didn't find a single one inside for our whole stay). Bright? During the day, certainly. Breezy? I suppose so.
Astrea was very helpful from the moment we booked, responding quickly to any questions we had, being available whenever we needed anything, and letting us know the lay of the land. She also baked us some of those cookies I mentioned earlier, so she's an A+ in my book.
The beds were comfortable, the fridge was clean, the water ran fine, and the Wi-Fi was actually pretty decent. It's not a place you'd spend all day, but that's not why you're in PR, is it? As a bonus, the Coquí frogs lull you to sleep each night with their collective song.
In closing, if you find yourself in Rincón and are looking for a place to stay near great food, friendly people, and the songs of the ocean and the Coquí , you should hit up Astrea. She's got you covered.
