This place is a perfect base for a vacation in Rincon, particularly if you are in any way interested in surfing. To start, the hosts (Bobby and Raquel) are very familiar with all that Rincon and the area have to offer and are quick to offer assistance if you need some help. We ended up getting a flat tire and Bobby was able to make arrangements for the repair at a very reasonable price (allowing me to go off and enjoy an already scheduled surf lesson, which he also organized for me).
The place is very, very, clean and comfortable, with all the amenities you need to prepare light meals, snacks, coffee and tea. There is a BBQ area where you could prepare more substantial meals, but we never used it as there are a lot of very nice restaurants/bars in Rincon that we wanted to enjoy. It is very nice to sit on the veranda with a coffee in the morning or at night before bed. It is not located on a Beach, however, it is central to many of the key beaches. As Rincon has many beaches and attractions around it that you will likely want to visit, there is a significant benefit to renting a vehicle for the duration of your stay regardless of where you stay.
As Bobby and Raquel also run the Mar Azul Surf Shop they are able to help with the needs of any surfer and they offer great discounts on board rentals to guests. They also provided free snorkeling gear (we found Steps Beach to be a very nice place to snorkel – we saw a good variety of fish and coral and we were very entertained by a young sea turtle).
What a great spot Bobby and Raquel have! The property is exactly as listed and the pictures don't do it justice. Everything is maintained beautifully and you can tell the owners truly care about their property. The location is perfect, just a short drive away from all the beaches and restaurants but in a quite and peaceful location above a valley. If you're a surfer, Bobby has great selection of boards to rent (half price rentals for their guests!!). Like others have said, Mi Famila Pizzeria is a must and is only a short walk away. We highly recommend this property and can't wait to return!
Great spot and best boards in Rincon..quick walk to lazy parrot for drinks and food or general store next to that for everything else/bakery or 3 min drive to Marias break,friendly,quiet..beds awesome and a parking spot..can't ask for more
I absolutely love staying at Mar Azul. Raquel and Bobby have a beautiful property and they keep it spotlessly clean. The landscaping is beautiful and everything about their setting makes for a great vacation. I just had my second stay in their upper studio apt. and I just love staying there. The breezes that blow through are heavenly. I cannot say enough good things about it! It has everything you need - a kitchenette with a toaster oven (came in handy for re heating the best pizza in Rincon - Mis Familias Pizza at the Lazy Parrot), a microwave, mini fridge, coffee pot, and they even supplied coffee and tea. Inside the apt. there is a table and chairs and a leather sofa. The bathroom has a nice walk in shower with a window for ventilation and natural light. The shower has great water pressure and hot water. The bed is comfortable and EVERYTHING is perfectly clean. They provided beach towels too. One of my favorite things about this apt. is the outdoor living space. They have the nicest covered outdoor patio with a wicker table and chairs, seating area, and ceiling fan. There are pretty potted plants and it is the ultimate space to relax and enjoy the tropical setting. Every day you will enjoy being serenaded by the sounds of the coqui (frog that makes a special sound) and other noises starting just before sunset and throughout the night. So peaceful and relaxing! Raquel and Bobby have a beautiful yard surrounding their home and apts. and everything is green and tropical. I enjoy the views looking out the windows and I know THERE IS NOT A BETTER PLACE TO STAY than at Mar Azul. It is my favorite and I highly recommend it. Make sure you rent a car so you can explore the area. Eat delicious thin crust pizza down the street at Mis Familias Pizza and also try the grilled Mahi Mahi at Shipwreck Bar and Grill.
My wife and I were looking for an authentic Rincon experience and this place more than delivered! The accommodations are comfortable and nicely appointed, situated behind the owners house within a peaceful "barrio". Drinking Puerto Rican coffee on the balcony, enjoying a view of the fruit trees in the backyard, the picturesque valley beyond and glimpse of the ocean on the horizon, my wife and I agreed that we could seeing ourselves living in a place like this. Rincon is ideally situated for serious water sports like surfing and paddleboarding and Bobby has all the top notch gear you need. This is a wonderful place to spend time; I can't recommend it enough! Let Bobby and Raquel show you all that Rincon has to offer.
Mar Azul is a terrific perch if you're looking for a quiet and comfortable home base in Rincon. You can't beat the location (though at the beginning you'll probably miss a turn on your way somewhere, but isn't that part of the fun on a vacation?). It's in a quiet rural-feeling residential neighborhood and the balcony overlooks a beautiful valley so you feel away from everything even though you're literally minutes away from whatever you need, especially if you need a good selection of boards and fantastic surf breaks.
The studio is simple without feeling spartan or low budget, the outdoor space is great, and Bobby and Raquel are the best sort of owner/hosts: warm and friendly and helpful. They've represented the place completely accurately in their listing, and yet it doesn't really do the set-up—or them—justice! My only complaint is that my stay was way too short.
