Paradise on a budget

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!
