AMAPOLA HOUSE BEACH AREA VILLA - COVERED POOL, SKY DECK HOT TUB - GREAT RATES

Rincon Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 levels, 4 large bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps up to 8

Puerto Rico’s Amapola House is a private getaway minutes from the quaint town of Rincon, nestled near sweeping hillsides and tropical scenery in the Caribbean islands. Located a few minutes away from pristine Sandy Beach and the best Rincon restaurants and bars, Amapola House provides a comfortable resting place for those that want to have an activity-filled day, but a quiet place to return to at night.

The owners make sure that Amapola House feels more like second home than a hotel. Built by the Avilés family, who has lived in the area for generations, the house features modern design and stylish décor. Named after the hibiscus flowers that used to bloom on the property of the family matriarch, Amelia Avilés, Amapola House features original paintings, family heirlooms and historic surfing photos and sepias of Old Rincon going back to the 1890’s.

Arriving Guests receive a tour from the house Concierge, who answers any questions about the house or what to do while in Rincon. Once situated, guests can sit in comforatble chairs and look out into the tropical scenery from the Starlight Veranda, the private suite terrace or the lower pool deck. They can also sunbathe on the Sunset Sky Deck, which also features a jumbo-sized spa tub, perfect for relaxing evenings.

Amapola House is a four-level vacation home with four bedrooms. All the bedrooms include large closets and either a queen bed or two twin beds. With three full bathrooms, the house comfortably accommodates up to eight people. Rooms are decorated in rich yellow and terracota tones in a contemporary style. A private suite is located on its own level with a private terrace and outdoor dining area. Guests who like to cook on holiday will love the fully equipped kitchen and cocktail bar. Amapola House also offers a dining service for eight, and several great restaurants are minutes away.

Amapola House offers a unique vacation experience that vastly differs from others in the area. Located in a private area that is only reachable through nearly untraveled roads, it gives guests seclusion and tranquility, while still being close to the area’s best beaches and hotspots. The art, antiques and photos offer a glimpse into Rincon’s past and the history of surfing. Guests will truly feel at home at Amapola House, which was designed to do just that.

The golden sands and pristine waters of Sandy Beach are only two minutes by car and ten minutes on foot. Our Sky Deck sunsets are unforgettable and and the nights are filled with millions of stars and serious moonlight.

The interior is designer-decorated and contains a private collection of heirloom antiques and vintage photographs of Old Rincon and Surfing legends, which are part of The Amapola House Story.

The Amapola House 24/7 VIP Arrival & Departure Service includes a personal tour at check-in and personal assistance at check out. Additional Amapola House Concierge Services include local taxi service, airport transportation, baby sitting, maid and laundry service, as well as grocery shopping and catered food services.

Everyone that stays at Amapola House only regrets not staying longer and wishes to return soon, as indicated in our Guest Book entries.

Our kitchen and bar are well-equipped. Guest sleeps quite comfortably in beds with high-quality mattresses and high-count linens (no futons or pull outs). Extra large closets keep your living accommodations spacious.

Our oversized towels are plush and so are our beach towels. The large bathrooms offer rain shower heads, glass basins and oversized mirrors to allow you to pamper yourself as you prepare for the evening, after a day at the beach or a day trip.

iPod stereos, DVD players, flat screen TV's and full cable TV service provide entertainment between outings. High-speed wireless Internet keeps you connected when you want to be.

Our Concierge is always nearby and available to assist you during your stay at Amapola House and to ensure that your stay is a comfortable one.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Amapola House is a tranquil delight. A group of eight of us travelled to from Ireland to Rincon for a week's stay. This modern villa was immaculate with fantastic utilities and comfortable rooms. I would recommend renting a car if you were to stay here as it's a little off the beaten track, a ten minute walk from the beach and about two miles from the town of Rincon. There are many advantages of staying at this villa, watching the sunset from the rooftop, bathing in the hot tub whilst listening to music, having a nice glass of wine straight from the wine cooler in the kitchen and lots, lots more. You really have to see it to believe it! I would most certainly recommend a stay at Amapola House.

AMAPOLA HOUSE: MORE THAN WE EXPECTED

  • 5 of 5
We're among the first to stay at Amapola House, because it's brand new. It's much more than what we saw online. The stay was totally enjoyable. The place is quiet has everything you'd want for a beach-area villa and more. The view from the rooftop is awesome, with unforgettable sunsets, especially from the spa tub. We loved all the modern touches, such as super-quiet A/Cs, the bar and wine cooler, silky mega-count linens and super thick towels. The beaches, only minutes away, were pristine and we had great lunches and dinners at the many restaurants located at Sandy Beach; the beach bars had live music and friendly barkeeps and locals. We took advantage of the promotional introductory rates, but will gladly pay the full rate to spend more time at Amapola House when we return for our Winter vacation.

GREAT VILLA, AWESOME VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
All my family enjoyed our time in Puerto Rico. The villa was great, exactly as described. Nice, clean, everything worked perfectly including wi-fi. Tips for beach goers, just 15 miles away is a perfect spot called "Crash Boat Beach" in Aquadilla with pristine clear water and white sand. For divers I would definitely recommend go to Desicheo Island with Taino divers. Visibility was about 100 ft, beautiful reef and shore caverns. Overall great vacation. Thanks you Anthony for a perfect place.

CHARMING, BEAUTIFUL, FUN!

  • 5 of 5
Wow, what a great time! We stayed at the Amapola House last weekend, and never wanted to leave! We are a group of 20-something relatives (brothers, sisters, cousins, significant others, etc.), and the Amapola House was perfect for us. It was clean and cozy, and its well-appointed interior and personal touches made it feel like a "home" and not like just another vacation rental. The property manager/concierge lives close-by and is very accomodating (for instance, we were able to check in much earlier than expected due to a change in our arrival plans). The house is located within easy walking (or stumbling... as might have been the case once or twice for us!) distance from Sandy Beach and the numerous bars and restaurants located near the beach (such as Tamboo and Casa Verde). The rooftop patio is truly a magical place at night, with millions and millions of stars visible. One tip: Let the hot tub start warming up HOURS before you want to use it - same goes for the oven. My brother who is an engineer said this might have more to do with the Puerto Rican power grid and less to do with the functionality of the appliances themselves.

Summary: Great house, great memories, great location. You will not be disappointed with this place - by far the best rental in this size and price range I've seen in all our trips to Rincon!

A NICE PLACE TO STAY IN RINCON

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I recently stayed at Amapola House with our families. We were impressed with how immaculate and pretty the house was. It was very nice to have the separate apartment downstairs too for some privacy. The view is lovely from the deck or the roof and the hot tub was great too. It would be nice to have a little more shade on the roof, maybe over the table. You can walk down the big hill to Sandy Beach, which is beautiful, though it was quite windy with large waves the whole time we were there so it was preferable to drive around the corner to Tres Palmes for swimming or snorkling. The outdoor shower was useful and the indoor hot showers were lovely - when you turn on the shower, don't turn the handle all the way to the right, only turn it a little (the hot & cold is reversed). Ode to the Elephants is very close, with good music and atmosphere, and pretty good Thai food too. :)

Only a couple of things detracted a little from our stay; one was that there weren't really any basics in the house upon arrival; often in rental houses you'll find things like salt and pepper left over from previous guests; Amapola kitchen was basically bare. And the kitchen is not very big; it's quite easy to fill the little refrigerator to overflowing. Not a big deal though. The other thing was that we'd somehow missed that we were supposed to check out by 10am on the last day. Understandable, as they need to clean and prepare for the next guest, but to make breakfast and clean up and pack everything by 10am can be a bit rushed. Also no big deal.

We very much appreciated the dominoes set, and spent some quality family time learning some games, and the ipod sound set-up, which let us have nice background music going during cooking and dinner. I would not hesitate to recommend Amapola House to friends. :)

Owner's Response: We always welcome great feedback from our Guests at Amapola House. We strive to make sure that our Guests find a clean, modern and beautiful home when they arrive for their vacations.
As in most self-catered vacation rentals, when Guests check-out, they sometimes leave ice, salt, pepper, sugar and other condiments in the kitchen. If they are sealed, our staff is instructed to leave them for arriving guests. Our Concierge can purchase groceries for Guests, prior to arrival, by prior arrangement.
Our galley kitchen is similar to most other vacation rentals and is designed for eight guests. With the many supermarkets, grocery stores, bakeries and nearby restaurants, most guests find it just right.
We also offer a wine cooler, which may guests use to chill other beverages, in order to provide more space in the refrigerator. Our full size range, microwave oven and BBQ grill provide a variety of cooking choices. The lower level studio also has a refrigerator, microwave-convection oven and a coffeemaker.
Due to a construction defect, the hot water in the showers comes out before the cold water. Our Concierge always makes sure to point that out during the check-in tour and is readily available to answer any questions about Amapola House and its amenities.
At Amapola House, we're flexible with our guest departures and if no one is coming in on the same day we can allow more time, if requested. Our check-out time is actually 11:00 AM, as in most vacation rentals. Check-in and check-out times are listed in our two Guest Guidebooks, rental agreements, websites and our Concierge relays that information during check-in.
We're re continually glad to hear that Amapola House and its surroundings is so well enjoyed by everyone that stays with us.

OUR STAY IN RINCON

  • 5 of 5
Rincon was beautiful! The house had everything we needed as mentioned in its ad. The house was clean and ready for the family. Did not receive a call back from the overseer of the house when encountering an issue we had. This would have been concerning had the issue not resolved itself. The area activities were fun and the people of Ricon were friendly and eager to please. Must have a car to get around especially for grocery shopping and necessities for your stay.

Owner's Response: Rincon is an Ocean Paradise. Our pictures, video and website virtual tour incorporate professional photos that show exactly what Amapola House is. The area activities are fun and the people are quite friendly to our guests. A car is useful; others choose utilize our Concierge services and walk to the beach and the many restaurants and beach bars. A loose tree branch affected the cable and was handled very quickly. We enjoy and look forward to providing our guests with the best accommodations and great service.
