Tropcial Beach House: If You Really Want To Experience The Ocean And Nature........This Is Your Place !
An earlier reviewer suggested this house is "more camp than comfortable", and I must disagree. There is nothing campy about this house. I think cottage would be a better description. It is not luxurious, but it is comfortable, and peaceful, and relaxing. It is not touristy, you live amongst the locals and there are some very lovely and welcoming neighbours in the area. Some might say it could have been cleaner, but for my expectations it was no different than any cottage at the lake in Ontario. The A/C units all worked great, but most nights we let the tropical breeze flow in. Only a couple of really humid nights when we closed the windows and let the A/C keep the house cool. The view from the patio was awesome, with tropical plants and trees in the foreground, and the ocean in the background. The unheated pool below the house was 25C (76F) water temp and provided a refreshing dip on hot days and nights. But we spent most of our time on the beach. There are two outdoor showers, with warm water, for when you return from the beach. At the house, we spent most of our time on the ground floor which was an open-air living area, with a fridge, kitchen sink, a huge outdoor oven with 2 gas burners and 2 BBQ pits, a bathroom with shower, laundry machines, patio umbrella, 2 tables, several patio chairs, and wicker furniture. This is where we cooked and gathered for most meals and evenings, listening to the birds and watching the little lizards.
The 2nd level had a good kitchen with lots of equipment, a full bathroom, two bedrooms, and a small livingroom area with TV/stereo setup. There was a small balcony off the front with great views of the area. Another balcony off the side had a long counter with chairs where we always ate our breakfasts outdoors. The 3rd level had 2 more bedrooms, one with a private balcony. Again, nothing fancy or luxurious, but certainly comfortable. Everything was in working order. Suggestion; get bags of oranges from roadside stands and use the electric juicer each morning - fantastic.
We had one problem with the main door not closing properly, but Juan sent a locksmith the next morning to fix it. Julio was the caretaker who met us on arrival and was a great contact for us. We felt secure at all times here. A small store is just a few houses down the road. There are folding chairs and umbrellas and a cooler on wheels for the beach, or park the chairs at the top of the sea wall to watch the amazing sunsets.
My friends and I had such an absolutely wonderful stay at Juan Oretga's rental home. Juan was above and beyond helpful throughout the entire trip, making sure that we felt comfotable to contact him at any hour of the day in case we needed anything. The house was equipped with all of the amenities listed and was very conveniently located just a stone's throw away from the beach. I definitely suggest renting a car like we did, as it is a bit difficult describing to a cab driver where exactly the house is located the first time (plus, most all restaurants/grocery stores/etc are driving distance away, so it would've been costly to pay for a cab every time we wanted to leave the house). For anyone staying here in the future, tell the cab service the house is along the beach, near the old train tracks, right next to Casa Blanca. The sunsets in Rincon can't be beat, especially by the beach right down the driveway from the house. Once again, I can't say enough how helpful and accomodating Juan and his property manager Julio were. One night the power went out, and it was fixed within 10-15 mins of contacting Julio. He is the best. I hope to revisit this beautiful blue Rincon residence again in the future, and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, private, affordable, and relaxing vacation in Rincon! Thanks again Juan and Julio for making our trip to Rincon as great as it was! Hope to visit you again soon...-Daniel
We were very unhappy with the house during our stay. Air conditioners were not always working (one beeped continuously all night on our last night). The pool was not heated and being under the house it gets no sun to heat naturally. The house was absolutely filthy when our group moved in for the week nad had to be completely cleaned (by us). The couches were festering with mosquitos, and the beds were uncomfortable (worse than a normal futon mattress).
If you need an inexpensive location to stay this could work in a pich but there are much nicer places to stay in the area for the same price. The beach was nice but hard to access unles you were willing to climb and jump.
If we ever return will will be staying up near sandy beach north of the lighthouse
One last piece of advice don't plan on finding the house in the middle of the night try to arrive in the daylight it is tricky to find if you don't know the area.
I have rented many vacation properties and have never been disappointed, until now. This home is more camp like than comfortable. We had difficulty sleeping because the beds were uncomfortable, a couple of the air conditioners didn't work and the local roosters begin crowing at 3 am. We actually went out and purchased an air mattress to sleep on! There is not much room to gather and relax indoors.
On the positive side, the beach is a short walk away and is beautiful. The house was pretty much clean and the pool, though small, was clean also.
This place a was a God-Send. We needed a beach house in Rincon for 7 people, but were on a tight budget. We wanted a place with a pool, grill, kitchen and dining area, as well as lots of bedrooms. Juan's place was it.
The listing on Home Away was true; all amenities listed were available to us and the place was clean, tidy and well built. We were a group of 7 friends in our 20s, but we were looking for a great place close to the beach, that was quiet and made for relaxation.
Juan, the owner, was friendly, very detailed and made a point of letting us know that if we needed anything, he was just a phone call away. He didn't bug us during our trip, but once we did need something from him, he was on it. We were an easy group though; we decided to explore mostly on our own and found some great restaurants and bars in town and down by the area where the surfers stay. Rock Bottom at Casa Verde was a great hang out spot, and so was Taboo. They are both a 10 minute ride from the house. Rincon Tropical is only 5 minutes from the house and had awesome food. Also, if you want to stay really local, El Bohio is a great bar. They have karaoke on saturdays, and pool tables and slot machines are available all day for recreation.
I do recommend you rent a car. We rented two and were so glad that we did. Most cabs have problems getting down to the shore houses since they are technically on the beach and tend to not have real house numbers. Since you're saving so much on this house, you can afford a rental car ;-).
I wrote even more about the house and our experience on my blog, 4 Hats and Frugal. Enjoy your stay!
My family had the time of our lives. Juan was super helpful and pleasant from the date we booked the trip throughout our stay. The beach was awesome. We spent 5 days on the beach and only seen 3 other people the whole time. The water was kind of rough and we couldn't really swim but the kids still loved playing in the waves in the shallow water. The house suited our needs but wouldn't have been overly comfortable if we had planned to spend more time indoors, the couch is small and there is not a lot of room in the living room for entertaining or relaxing. But then again, we were in Puerto Rico....who is hanging out in the house? Then there is Albert!! He is awesome. He went out of his way to make sure that are trip was enjoyable. Make sure to book a tour with him if you visit. During our stay there was a small earthquake, both Albert and Juan called to check on us at 2am! Couldn't have asked for better hosts. Thanks so much for our first of many trips to Puerto Rico!!
