For secluded beaches, beautiful sunsets, playing in the surf, snorkeling, worldclass surfing and fishing, Rincon Escape is the perfect escape for you.
Our home is wonderfully large with an old world feeling - high ceilings and generous spaces to relax in. It has a secluded patio and its own private pool.
Rincon Escape is located on a quiet cul de sac that leads to the beautiful, sandy Corcega beach - one minute walk (3 houses) from the villa. Situated on the Carribbean Sea, it is Rincón's most beautiful, gentle beach.
The house has 2 master suites with bathrooms, fully airconditioned and ceiling fans. Both open to a large covered balcony overlooking pool. One suite has a queen size bed, the other two double beds.
There are two additional large bedrooms, one with a queen size bed, and the other with twin beds. Both are airconditioned and have ceiling fans. There are two additional full baths in the house. Plus there is an outdoor shower for your return from the beach.
For dining, you can pull a stool up to the granite counter in the large, gourmet kitchen, or enjoy the round table in the dining room, looking onto the patio – or even better have breakfast, lunch and dinner on the patio to the sounds of tropical birds and coquis (tree frogs).
There are ceiling fans in every room, including bathrooms and the patio.
We have many guests returning to Rincon Escape, enjoying the nearby ocean -- but even more they especially love the pool. Grandparents love to watch their grandkids play, and others go from patio to pool and back again with a freshened drink in hand. The abundant greenery and palm trees surround you - it is paradise.
Wedding guests/families especially love to stay at Rincon Escape because it is a beautiful home - very appealing for elegant weddings. The interior staircase is perfect for photos.
The house is designed for entertaining, with plenty of room in the kitchen for many friends to be cooking at once. It has granite counters, microwave, large oven, dishwasher. It is fully stocked with dishes, glasses, silverware.
If you would prefer to eat out, Rincon has several wonderful restaurants offering everything from Tapas to Puerto Rican cuisine and even sushi.

We are two hardworking professional folk in our 60s, waiting for grandchildren to come along. We love to garden, to cook, and love the water. And we have both in abundance at our home in Rincon.
Kenneth Sale purchased this villa in 2005
We bought in Rincon on a lark. While vacationing in Puerto Rico, we visited the out of the way town of Rincon and fell in love. We asked ourselves, “how could this quiet little town from the 1950's with wonderful beaches and great surfing be kept so hidden from big tourist operations?' We have since discovered that Rincon is the jewel of Puerto Rico's west coast, an out of the way and unspoiled paradise.
The best part of Rincon Escape is going to the beach and submerging myself in the warm ocean water. And just paddling about. Then a walk on the beach, and back in the water. Going home to shower and then off to a local bakery or store for good Puerto Rican food. Back home to sunbathe by the pool, and then back to the beach with drink in hand watching the sunset. Incredible snorkeling is only a 5 minute drive away and the local sufing beaches are some of the best in the Carribbean.
Between the beach and the pool, we didn't feel the need to go anywhere else. Our grandchildren could not get enough of the water and the sand. The house is spacious and gracious, but the best part is the roofed veranda and pool and walled garden, where we ate all of our meals and enjoyed just talking.
We had been to San Juan before but never Rincon. It is rural Puerto Rico. A wonderful and busy little town from the 1950s. The nights are filled with tropical sounds of tiny frogs. Early morning in the distance roosters crowing and an occasional dog. Modernization is also present. Rincon Escape has a good wi-fi and my laptop worked fine.
We had two big adventures. Snorkeling at Steps Beach - discovering fabulous corals. And several of us tried scuba diving -- you don't have to be experienced just adventuresome.
We are already planning a return.
My family and I had a great time at Rincon Escape!! Very clean and comfortable!! We especially loved the terrace and pool area!! Beautiful landscaping makes it very tropical! Would rent again!!
We found the Rincon Escape villa to be the perfect week long getaway from the snow and cold weather. The villa was spacious with large bedrooms, kitchen, decks and pool area.
We had three couple in our group. We all had plenty of room.
The beach is just a few houses away and the town is only 1.5 miles. Rincon is a small beach community. The main attractions are the beach, surfing, diving and snorkeling. But it's also great for just relaxing and getting away. We visited many local restaurants and every meal was an absolute treat.
We even found the only two golf courses on west side of the island.
This is a tropical island and it took a couple of days to get use to the sounds of roosters and tree frogs at night, but they soon became a part of the ambience.
The common areas of the house are not air conditioned, but the breezes kept everything comfortable. The bedrooms all had there own air conditioners that made sleeping easy.
The pool was refreshing and the kitchen was stocked with everything you need. The only problem we had was one of the bedroom air conditioners didn't work and the repairman we were promised never showed.
My wife and I have spent a lot of time in rented places across the island over the last 10 years, and Rincon Escape definitely ranks right at the top of list. As other reviewers have stated, this is not a beach house, but a beautiful home. It provided a great base for our stay in Rincon. The house proved to have more than enough room for us, our three children and a couple family friends.
We found everything to be as advertised or better. In some regards the pictures don't quite do the place justice. We found everything to be clean, well maintained, and ready for our stay. The pool was a little dirty upon arrival, but this was weather related, and the property manager came and cleaned it with in a matter of hours. We found the property manager Lisa to be very friendly, helpful, and professional. She was a good source of information on Rincon and provided great restaurant recommendations. The owner himself was responsive and professional and answered all our questions promptly and responded promptly to questions during our stay.
The kitchen was spacious and well equipped. The layout of the home is great for large groups, and the backyard/patio/pool provided a wonderful area to hangout, and was certainly the place everyone congregated throughout the day. The beach was nice and close, and provided a nice alternative to the pool.
The whole family, and our friends, loved our stay. As we plan next year's trip (what reminded me to write this review) they are asking to go back to Rincon Escape. I think we just might. This one will definitely be on our list for future visits.
I do want to mention two potential negatives - both minor - but probably worth mentioning. Others have referenced the dog next door, and yes the barking can start early in the morning and certainly continues on and off through day. This may be an issue for some. The other was getting internet. I found the owner to be VERY helpful in this regard, but unfortunately during our stay getting reliable internet was a challenge. Again, not a big issue as the idea of our vacation was to "disconnect" and it was not listed as an amenity for the property. For those who "need" a connection though, it may prove frustrating.
I would highly recommend this property to anyone.
EXcellent facility with EVERYTHING!! Not only towels for the 4 bathrooms, even for the beach; beach chairs, BBQ, a pool with a beautiful landscape and a huge terrace, AC's, wash and dryer, etc. Less than a minute walk from the beach. Super clean facility and very well maintained. What else can you ask for.
Our group of 9 recently stayed in this house. When we checked in we were surprised by the size and cleanliness of the house.At no point in our nine day stay did we feel crowded or on top of each other. The house exceeded our expectations. Lisa was very warm and professional. The pool could use better maintenance and the beach is disappointing. Overall it was a wonderful experience we would definitely recommend this house to anyone. We look forward to our next stay there.
