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.

When there are no waves, there is good snorkeling on the reef. All beaches are open to the public in Puerto Rico, but, this stretch of beach is as close to 'Private' beach as you can get. Especailly when the water is calm.

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 Puerto Rico

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.

What makes this villa unique

The Unique benefits of this villa is of course its location, nice quiet area, within walking distance to some beach bars and restaurants but yet not the noise.

Spacious tropically landscaped grounds, semi private road.

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 Family Time!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and a few friends, 11 of us in total had a wonderful stay at Casa Por Fin!! The house had plenty of space so we did not feel crowded. The house was clean when we got there, although we would have loved an extra maid service half way through the week! The pool was relaxing and we spent a lot of time in it. Brought our own floaties which was very necessary as there were not any. The beach was beautiful - fun looking for shells, but if you enter the water be sure to wear water shoes and watch out for sea urchins. The town was cute and we ate at Tamboo Tavern, The Beach House and the Sushi Restaurant which were all good! Very low key town which made for a very relaxing vacation! Enjoyed every minute of it! The Snorkel/Bio Bay Tour through Paradise Scuba about an hour away is an absolute must - it was so awesome!! Oh, and we loved the kitty that seemed to come with the house!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We love La Parguera too!! It is a fun place for a day trip. We like packing out cooler, renting a small boat, and spending the day snorkeling and swimming right off the boat. If you walk down the beach to the next house either the right, or the left, you will find places where you can enter the water with a smooth bottom surface. Just a reminder...additional mid week cleaning is an available option. Just let me know either on arrival or in advance and I can set it up for you with our reliable cleaning crew.

Great family vacation destination!

  • 5 of 5

Our family, 10 people, 3 generations recently spent a week at Casa Por Fin. The spacious home and grounds are every bit as beautiful as the photos. We all enjoyed the pool and tropically landscaped yard. The seating area near the beach is perfect for watching the sunset, and a few of us enjoyed napping in the nearby hammocks. We particularly loved the shady patio seating areas whether playing games with the children, eating meals, or just relaxing while listening to the sound of the surf. As other reviewers have stated, the beach behind the house is rocky and not well suited for swimming. The little ones built sand castles on the beach behind the house, and we enjoyed swimming and snorkeling at Steps Beach which is just a short walk up the beach from the house. We also walked in the other direction and had a delicious lunch at the Calypso Grill.

We were startled the first time we saw an iguana in the yard. It was close to 3 ft. long, but we soon realized it meant us no harm. There were often 2 or 3 in the yard at once. Fun! We don't get those in Missouri.

When we first arrived at the house the electricity was off. Parts of Rincon had no power and other areas had no water and a few places had neither. There was only enough propane in the generator to run for 5 or 6 hours, and more could not be delivered until the next morning. Anna's employee, Sebastian met us at the house and explained the situation. We were so impressed with him. He worked so hard to get the power back on. And on the following Sunday he arrived before we left even though he had to walk to the house because highway 413 was closed temporarily because of the triathlon. It was already pretty hot before 10 a.m. but he went right to work cleaning the pool. Anna has a good employee in Sebastian. He will do everything in his power to make your stay pleasant.

On our second evening there we had Angelo, the personal chef that Anna recommended, prepare a 5 course meal for us so we could sample some traditional Puerto Rican foods. Our huge meal included empanadillas, surullitos, cod fritters, cream of plantain soup, pork with guava sauce, and a mashed vegetable medley, plus salad and a dessert tray. We loved our introduction to Puerto Rican foods, and his generous portions allowed for leftovers for later in the week.

We really enjoyed our time at the beautiful Casa Por Fin. Our whole family appreciated the opportunity to vacation together in such a gorgeous location! Thank you Anna!

Location, Location, Location!

Location, location, location! This was our family's first trip to Rincon so we researched many places to stay and we are so glad that we choose Por Fin Dogmans, it was the perfect place to stay! The house was spacious and clean and the backyard was amazing! Nice to have the option of swimming in the pool when the ocean was rough. Our kids were able to surf at Dogmans and at many of the other beaches - all within a couple miles of eachother and some within walking distance. Restaurants, food trucks, grocery stores all close by. Our hosts, Anna & Steve, were great! They were able to answer our questions and gave us great advise on local places to go. We will be back! Thanks so much Anna & Steve!!

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
