Great surf break!!: Dogmans beach is a surf break between Maria's beach and Tres Palmas. All three beaches are within walking distance from each other. Even if you don't participate, just sitting on the beach and watching them ride the waves is exciting.

About steve martin or anna martin

My husband and I first came to Rincon in 1994. We were blessed in 1999 when we found this beachfront home, and immediately knew it was for us. We have done extensive remodeling of the villa and the grounds . We moved here in 2001 and spend most of the fall and winter here. We return to NJ for the summer months. We love sharing the villa and meeting guests from around the world.

steve martin or anna martin purchased this villa in 1999

Why steve martin or anna martin chose Rincon

This property is UNIQUE. It is rare to find beachfront homes with nearly an acre of property surrounding it. The road leading to the house is semi private. We are in a nice quiet area with upscale homes.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Everthing was just as the pictures look, in fact, it felt like I was standing in the main backyard photo when I first arrived. The house was very updated and had all the amenities I was looking for. And to make things even better, Anna and Steve were some of the nicest people I've ever met. Even though it seemed like they weren't even there, when I did have questions about where to go or what to do (being my first time on the island) they were there to help. Overall, I would highly reccomend this house to anyone looking for a perfect house in paradise.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 4 of 5
Stayed at Por Fin to celebrate my 50th birthday with a group of friends. The house and setting was perfect for us, enough shade for those that didn't want sun and enough loungers for those of us that did. We walked to Calypso at Maria's beach a few times which saved us from driving but all other places required a car. Was a bit disappointed that we couldn't use the beach at or near the house due to the rocks, I wish I had known that before but the pool was great. The bedrooms were comfortable for all my guests, everyone was happy with their accomodations. Anna and her husband Steve assisted us the few times we needed them (our gas grill ran out of propane after one use, and they also allowed us to borrow some beach umbrellas and chairs when we went to Sandy beach on our last full day) and were very friendly. Two of my friends arrived on the very early (4am) flight from NYC and accidentally went to the front of the house instead of the back, but Anna was not upset in the least...thanks Anna! It really was a great way to celebrate and I would love to return someday.
Also, as an FYI, if you have friends arriving without a car, Umberto at Borinquen Taxi, now knows how to get to the house, as he picked up my above-mentioned friends at 3:30am from BQN, and another on the same flight a few days later. He was incredibly helpful when another friend's flight was canceled, calling me to make sure she got a pick up on a later flight (she did.)

Owner's Response: Thank you and glad you enjoyed Rincon.
Although the beach is a surfing beach with a rocky bottom, there are some places where you can enter the water . One is on the left by my neighbors house and the other is near the Cabrada [water was out] on the right.

If you want a sandy bottom, try my house on Sandy beach.
Thanks for taking the time to write a helpful review!! Anna

best multi-family vacation ever

  • 5 of 5
Awesome is the only word that comes to mind.
We stayed at the Tress-Palmas house several years ago, and when we planned a return trip we invited friends to join.
The Por Fin Dogmans house was awesome, ample room for multi-family, nicely decorated, beautiful yard and landscaping with flowers and trees that were just amazing.
The only criticism I can offer would be the hot tub has no heater. and in the evening we would have really liked a nice HOT tub....other than that I would recommend the house and am sure to return myself for a third stay at one of Anna’s great houses.

Thanks Anna.

Owner's Response: Hi Noam. Glad you had a good time! As far as the hot tub goes, we turn it off around end of April and start it up again in December or so. If I was there, I would probably have been able to turn it on for you. Thanks again for taking the time to write. Anna

Nice, secluded location

  • 5 of 5
Beachfront property, but not appropriate for small kids as the beach has many rocks. You'll want to take the short drive to Sandy Beach for playing in the sand. This beach is mostly for enjoying the scenery. There were several surfers out there but you'd have to enter the water from somewhere other than directly in front of the house due to the rocks.

Nice home. Nice pool. Property is private and about 10 minutes from town. The waves in Rincon are amazing. The last 2 days of our vacation waves from an impending storm were a good 15 feet or higher. Only experts were in the water. Even life flight was patrolling the waters flying up and down the coastline. Otherwise, the waves were a perfect 4-6 feet. Perfect for boogie boarding or more novice surfers.

We really enjoyed the house, and our trip.

Amazing Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5
My family and I stayed at Por Fin Dogmans for a family vacation during the month of July. Our group consisted of nine adults and one teenager. We all had an amazing time. The house was spacious and clean which was wonderful but the property was absolutely gorgeous. Between the pool, beach and hammocks, we spent all of our time outside day and evening. The property is set up so that we could all sit around the table outside to play a game of dominos or cards but we could also all find our quiet little nooks for reading, taking a nap etc. It was the most relaxing week and we barely left the property.

When we did leave the property we found great little shops and bars close by and the supermarket was a short drive away with reasonable prices.

The only reason I rated the property four stars instead of five is because while the bedrooms had AC, the common areas did not. This was not a problem for most of us who spent our entire time in the pool and on the beach, but for my mother, who does not get into the pool or the ocean and suffers from asthma it was a little warm and humid at times and she would have to sneak off to her bedroom for the relief of the AC.

Despite that, we would go back to Por Fin Dogmans anytime. It was the best family vacation we've ever had and by the way, a great deal for the property. People were blown away when we shared pictures and the reasonable price. We wanted to go back this summer but my sister in law is expecting and will not be able to fly so we are planning a local trip.

We hope to make it back to Por Fin Dogmans in 2015!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to submit a detailed review. It is appreciated.

I apologize for the fact that the common areas are not air conditioned Vanessa. It is just not common practice here in Puerto Rico to have central air. As a matter of fact I can't think of ONE house or villa in this town that does have central air. I guess it may be because there is usually a nice breeze most of the year and guests enjoy leaving the doors open to the patio area. It may also be because the electric rate is so high here on the island that it is just not common practice to install central air.
The listing on homeaway does state that there are Room Air Conditioners. I will check to be sure that this fact is stated more clearly so people know before they reserve the villa. Thank you Vanessa. Anna

We are located on the western most tip of the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, in the surfing town of Rincon.

It is a unique location since we have waves from the Atlantic which are great for surf, while just a mile or so to the south is the start of the pristine waters of the Caribbean Sea. Por fin Dogmans is right next to the marine reserve. Here you can snorkeling with sea turtles and other marine life right off shore. The location is mapped out on google earth. Just enter 'Por Fin Dogmans beach' in the search box. For address, use Pso Bachon Velazquez.

Some interesting day trips are to La Parquera and the Phosphoresant Bay, the telescope in Aricibo, The Camuy caves, and of course the panoramic views from the winding mountain roads. Zip Lining is close by.

Best of all, the friendly people of Rincon Puerto Rico are helpful and welcoming. GPS coordinates Lat 18.354566261201022 Long -67.26841807365417

Within walking distance, on the beach, to Calypso Bar and Grill , Maria's beach, and the Light house.
