About the property

6 bedrooms, 5 baths, maximum of 18 people

This gorgeous beach house suffered no water or wind damage from hurricane Irma and maria's incredible power. Its safe location, behind a natural rock formation, protected her from a category 4 hurricane without a scratch. It lies on the edge of one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean, Sandy beach. At this villa, the deep blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean, blends with the beautiful turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea providing different shades of colors that will take you breath away and make you feel very pleased with your choice of property. This villa provides a gorgeous, serene and tranquil atmosphere that you will find very relaxing and peaceful as you unwind and relax with your family and friends. Whether lounging on hammocks beneath the thatched palapa (approx. 750 sqft.), or whale watching from the 2,100 square foot deck on the bluff, this home is an exquisite getaway. This setting combines Rincon's world famous surfing beaches with its famous sunsets while in view of Desecheo Island.

This beautiful property was purchased in 2003 and has undergone a major renovation, finishing in 2007. Coralina Del Mar acquired its name as a result of the gorgeous coralina stone that wraps around the entire home. This beautiful stone is a product of millions of years of coral accumulation throughout the Caribbean, and now is mined in similar fashion to granite and other like-types of stone. We are thrilled with the outcome and hope you enjoy it as much as we did getting it ready for you. Our goal is to make this home 'green' as possible, yet providing comfortable accommodations for our guests, seeking a getaway from their hectic schedules. You will find motion censored faucets in bathrooms to help reduce water consumption as it is very expensive. All shower heads are equipped with low flow output to again reduce excess water usage. Our hot water comes from solar panels, located on top of the roof, and are entirely independent of the electric grid. You will also find solar panel lighting in various places outdoors to continue to reduce electric consumption. The island of Puerto Rico is entirely dependent on petroleum as their source of energy, thus the cost of electricity is nearly three to four times that of the USA. To help reduce plastic waste, a water filtering system was installed that provide guests with triple filtered water. We are looking into solar and wind power to generate all of the property energy needs and be entirely off the grid . We hope to utilize the abundant sun and wind Mother Nature has provided us here in the Caribbean and contribute in helping future generations enjoy this beautiful island and world. With your help, we can make the difference. Hope you can assist in conserving energy while you visit this gorgeous and fun beach house.

Memorable Weddings, Family Gatherings or Events: This tropical location is ideal for small wedding parties, family gatherings or reunions. The rock bluff, with expansive deck, is a romantic location for an intimate sunset wedding or simply making memories with family or friends. Picturesque sunsets with pink, orange, and blue hues radiating from the sky and waves crashing on the rocks below will make your event one to remember. Our large palapa can accommodate small wedding parties of up to 50 people including registered guests.

Event and wedding fees are additional.

A large amazing house on a beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I met while staying at Coralina Del Mar on a group trip a few years ago, and recently stayed there again for our wedding. The location is absolutely amazing, as the house sits right on Sandy Beach. There is a large outdoor gazebo with hammocks and couches, right next to its small but fun pool. The large upper deck area has sunbeds for relaxing in the sun and overlooking the beautiful view. The house interior is large, spacious and comfortable with all of the essentials. There are a few fun bars and restaurants within walking distance, and a short drive to downtown Rincon. Overall, I would definitely recommend staying at Coralina Del Mar. It will always have a special place in my heart, and my husband and I will definitely stay there again.

Best views and fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

Coralina del Mar has one of the most beautiful locations of any house we have ever rented. The main living area has an adjacent covered, outdoor area with hammocks and outdoor seating for time off of the beach. There are a series of stairs and wooden walkways that lead to a huge deck set atop a small cliff that overlooks the ocean. The breeze and ocean views are amazing no matter what time of day. Whether you eat breakfast while watching the surfers catch the next wave or toast cocktails at sunset, the upper deck is the best! Then, there are stairs that lead down from the house and patio area to the beach. You can be looking down on the waves one minute, and in the waves the next. For this reason alone, Coraline del Mar is fantastic!

In addition to the house being beautifully situated right on the ocean, the area around the house also has a great vibe. There are several restaurants/bars, a coffee shop, mini market, yoga studio, and t-shirt shop right down the road from the house. All of these establishments are interspersed with tropical stands of trees and offer just enough entertainment without taking away from the beauty of the beach. The beach is almost completely unspoiled by development and lined with picture perfect palm trees.

In regards to the water, the waves are for experienced surfers. The coral bottom and frequency of decent sized waves make it a difficult place for novice beachgoers to enjoy wading in the ocean. There is another beach (called pools beach) a two minute walk up the street that offers calmer waters. There is also another beach (called Steps) that is 2 miles up the road and offers snorkeling and calmer waters for wading.

The town of Rincon is about 4 miles away with a cool center area that has a market on Sunday mornings and Thursday evenings. The main grocery store (the Econo), a meat market (called The Meat Market with local meat and seafood), fresh farm stand, and other typical amenities are there.

For our group of four families with 18 people, Coraline del Mar offered plenty of space and the perfect location for our time in Puerto Rico. Rusty, the owner, was also very responsive and we would highly recommend this property.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed at Coralina Del Mar.... we can't imagine staying anywhere else in Rincon! it's perfectly situated on the edge of Sandy Beach, within walking distance to several great bars, restaurants, shops, etc. The outdoor space is the best...plenty of room for everyone in our large group to relax...whether you want to nap in the hammock under the shaded pavilion, or soak in the sun on a lounge chair on the upper terrace, or sit on the upper deck and watch the surf or look for whales or just take in the spectacular view. The indoor space is well appointed...the kitchens are supplied with just about anything you'd need...the beds are comfy and there were plenty of towels provided. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. Overall, I would highly recommend staying here...we'll be back again next year, I'm sure!

About Rusty Torres

This villa is locally owned and operated since 2004 when it was purchased. My personal goal, as owner, was to return to my roots and turn this unique property into a place where one could come here relax and forget life's problems. Upon moving back to PR in 2006 and after 30 years living in the states and working as an aerospace engineer, I decided to turn this beautiful property into a vacation villa where others can enjoy it as I do. Soon after purchased, it went through a major renovation and it is now one of the most highly desired places to stay at in Rincon. While I continue to work as an aerospace engineer here in PR, I continue to personally be involved with day to day operation in managing the villa, thus ensuring guests satisfaction and lasting memories when they visit this gorgeous home. It is with great joy and satisfaction for me to showcase this property and I sincerely hope you enjoy it as much as my family and friends do when they come visit.

Rusty Torres purchased this guest house in 2004

Why Rusty Torres chose Puntas

This property was acquired for its beautiful location, beautiful people, and good vibes. With multiple restaurants, pubs, beaches, surf breaks, and snorkeling at walking distance, the villa soon became an exclusive getaway for families. Due to its many advantages, it has become very attractive to families of all sizes but particularly large families. Spending quality time and creating long lasting memories is something my family, friends and special guests have enjoyed for the past 14 years. Come and enjoy life at the beach with the most important people in your life. You will return with an unforgettable experience that your family and friends will cherish forever.

What makes this guest house unique

This villa has very unique qualities that are not offered anywhere else in the area. Our expansive decks, beach front location, thatched palm gazebo with its hammocks, and sunset views of Desecheo Island give guests a true feeling of a Caribbean flair found nowhere else in Rincon.
