About John Bacon & John Velez
My day job is as a Real Estate Broker in Oregon but I've spent over 25 years in Rincon Puerto Rico, first as a tourist and later as a host. In my leisure time, I enjoy RV Camping, Snow Skiing, Travel, Snorkeling, Scuba, Boogie Boarding and also surfing.
John Bacon & John Velez purchased this House in 2010
Why John Bacon & John Velez chose Rincón
The location with easy access to beaches, restaurants, and many other local activities without needing a car to get everywhere was really important to me and this home had all of those so I bought it, installed a wonderful pool and lush tropical landscaping, put in nice furnishings I would enjoy on vacation... the home is perfectly located just steps from not just any beach but 2 unique beaches. One is calm and great for children and swimming while the other is a great hangout for those wishing to surf and I love having the option that this particular location allows. Just a short 5 minute walk and you are in town square with many different types of restaurants and bakeries. I hand picked all the colors and new furniture for this exceptional home because I wanted guests to feel just as much at home here as I do when I am staying in it.
What makes this House unique
Close to everything you and your guests want within walking distance and yet an oasis when you want it... Property is perfectly located steps to an easy calm beach for sun and swimming as well as a minutes drive to the surfing beaches... several local restaurants, one has a great beach bar are close enough to walk (1 or 2 minutes from the house) and yet, far enough that you get to enjoy the home not right next to it when it's time to go home. Parents and kids love the location as it has something to offer for everyone...

A nice house in an awesome location
The house is nice and the pool area is awesome. Rincon is a fantastic destination for those looking to go somewhere not totally overran by tourists. It is about a 3 hour drive from the San Juan Airport, but you do get to take in some natural scenery during the trip. We stopped by the Costco on our way to the house to get supplies. We also went to the local Econo grocery store which is only 2 miles away. We had a group of 8 so we got two mid-sized rental cars. I would recommend this over a van, as driving/parking requires some maneuvering.
We walked downtown (maybe 1.5 miles) every night and never felt unsafe. It is a small town, but there were plenty of options for eating and drinking downtown. The Shipwreck bar near the house was good as well.
Everyday we visited a different beach. The beach is just a few hundred yards away, but that beach has rocks or coral for the first 20 feet or so. If you walk down 1/4 mile further, the city beach of Rincon is better. We really enjoyed our time on Sandy Beach which was 15 minutes away. We also enjoyed Crash Boat Beach by Auguadilla which was about a 45 minute drive.
We will return.
A Beautiful Home
This Home was perfect for us! We so enjoyed our stay here. The house was so spacious and clean and had everything you could possibly need. The pool was beautiful and refreshing. It was just a 5 minute walk to the beach. Plenty of restaurants close by too. Our favorite view was on the 3rd floor where you could see the beautiful water. Very Relaxing! The Owners were very responsive to every email. Thanks Again For a Wonderful Time!
It was amazing with the exception of wine bottle opeer... lol. We left one there though.
Amazing view, beautiful area. Finding the home at first was lil difficult at night. I do suggest more area rugs or rugs to help keep sand and dirt from coming into the home. Otherwise is was a beautiful stay and only wish we had more time.
Perfectly located for those who don't want to drive a lot while on their vacation. Less than a minutes walk to the beach, resturants and 4 minutes walk to other resturants and the local town plaza. This location offers a fantastic cove where you can swim in the ocean or walk just around the corner and enjoy nice surfing opportunities.
