Beachfront Villa

rincon puerto rico beachfront villa
Villa Orleans!
This is a Google Earth view of Villa Orleans. Rincon Google Earth pictures have recently become clearer and more beautiful. The beach in front of the villa is wonderful. If you like snorkeling these reefs are full of tropical fish you see in pet shops. These reefs also keep currents at bay, so you won't get dragged away.
There's an area like a small kiddy pool where I took my son when he was a toddler. We'd spend the mornings splashing around and playing with sand. If you stayed still, needle fish would come up to you.
This picture was taken when the tide was high because when the tide is low you see white water foam over some of the reef tops. This picture was also taken before a storm. The water is usually blue, except when a storm appears, then it turns green.
What you can't see in this picture are the two other houses we have on the property. The art gallery/apartment and the small wooden cottage. Trees keep them hidden from Google Earth.
Our gardens are wild.
